<p>Here's a note for decorators using this item:</p><p>I just received a bug report that this item should in fact be placing chain side out on walls, rather than (as it has since launch) chain side in.  The item is actually supposed to be wooden pegs from which chains are hung:</p><p><a title="ImageShack - Image And Video Hosting" href="http://img851.imageshack.us/i/wallchain.jpg/" target="_blank"><img src="http://img851.imageshack.us/img851/1212/wallchain.jpg" border="0" /></a> </p><p>Obviously the house item has been placed backwards since the game launched and I'd never actually looked at it that closely until now; but as the above picture shows, it does make more sense to have it place peg side outwards.</p><p>I plan to change the item to flip it around; however, this means that every item already placed in people's houses will also flip around. I will attempt to reposition the item so as little movement as possible occurs - I will try to keep the wooden part in exactly the same position, but this will cause the chains to shift from one side of it to the other. So be advised that you may need to do some minor repositioning when this occurs (probably in the next game update).</p>

<p>Domino,</p><p>Since this is an item that has been around so long, and it's pretty commonly used (backer for trophies, etc)...  Would it be possible to just duplicate the recipie and make a second one where it's fixed?  Kaladin Wall Chain, Kaladim Pegged Chains?  It would prevent a lot of headache for players (especially those that don't regularly read the forums and wouldn't get the heads up).</p><p>Just a thought.</p>

I've used them in a number of spots because of that blank board.</p>

<p>I have to agree with the duplicate item idea.  Or... just don't change it at all.  It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me to force everyone who has already used the item to have to go in and use layouts to fix their houses.   Decorators are used to turning things aroud and upside down to get a different texture or look, so any folks who are interested in the chains on a peg look can certainly use layouts to swap it around.   I think its pretty likely that the majority of decorators that have used the kaladim wall chain picked it because of the blank board that can be used as a backing for weapons or other items (I know I've used it that way in several houses over the years, although I'm not sure I have any in use atm).  The chains are mostly a decorative addition, although I can see potential uses for the chain on a peg look too now <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.</p>

<p>i never noticed it was backwards, either.  i dont use a layout editor to decorate my house(s). now that i see it, i do like it both ways; however, agree with the others.  changing it will mess up some of my decorations.  why not leave this one alone and make a new one?</p>
