View Full Version : Older Characters Remain Bugged - The Pain of the Old Tank =(

12-07-2004, 01:44 PM
<DIV>As I had posted a while back older characters did not recieve their level 16 undead mastery. Our Skeleton Rage, Ghost Rage, or Zombie Rage.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It appears older characters also did not recieve a 22 trait that would have played a significant roll for a Shadowknight. The options to choose from were more max hp, more max power, faster hp regen, or faster power regen. Note the text did not say anything about in or out of combat.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Last I heard a patch was being tested a while back that was going to reset every players trait points and allow us to reselect them, however this patch has yet to be seen. If we're missing any other traits, I'll post them here. My fiancee's new character recieved both of them properly, however I still remain without either of them. Such a shame.</DIV><p>Message Edited by Draxis on <span class=date_text>12-07-2004</span> <span class=time_text>03:49 AM</span>

<DIV>What would you have chosen if you could do it (all over)?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>/Kale</DIV>

<DIV>23 SK on Innothule, having the same problem as Draxis. No undead mastery or 22 trait.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Eetum</DIV>

I haven't gotten a choice since level 12, and I made my character on opening day.

12-07-2004, 09:03 PM
I never recieved a choice upon dinging to 22. Then again i never knew i was suppose to get to pick something. Is there a pattern to when we get to pick traits?Gorn23sk

<DIV>I have also not recieved my 16 or 22 advance.</DIV> <DIV>Any news on a fix would be appreciated.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Sevin</DIV> <DIV>Exodus--Neriak</DIV>

I missed my level 16 (the undead mastery pick).Started about a week after release (about the same day I recreated my station account).I know there's a patch... it will show up at some point. Not terribly worried (Orc Mastery wasn't that big a deal to me).

12-08-2004, 02:43 AM
<DIV>I got my level 16 Mastery about 5 days back. Must be the only good thing about being a slow leveler :smileytongue:</DIV>

12-08-2004, 02:09 PM
<DIV>Havent gotten to add a trait or a mastry since the orc, lv12? ...im 29 now. No idea what im missing at this point but I sure hope they fix this issue soon!</DIV>

12-09-2004, 12:06 AM
<DIV>I agree entirely. I fortunately recieved my racial trait, but other than that the last thing I got was the Orc Mastery.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The news post is pretty old now, but hopefully the next major patch will feature the fix and we'll get to reselect our choices. I'm happy to go back and take STA as my bonus attribute, as I had previously selected STR - I think I'd rather the HP's, they're more noticable than damage STR adds <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It's a bit of a disadvantage to be missing the level 22 one as well, not to mention anything else we don't know about =)</DIV>

<DIV>I also have not recieved my lv 16 and lv 22 skills. Pls fix this. Or at least some word on it.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I've been playing since servers opened up as well.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

12-09-2004, 12:45 AM
<DIV>The problem has been recognised and is in the process of being fixed. Here is what the devs said</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> <DIV>Just wanted to let folks know that we're aware of the issue of characters not receiving their traits, traditions, and tactics properly. We've got the issue corrected on our development server, but we want to test the system for a while before it goes live.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>When the update goes to the live servers, everyone's trait/tradition/tactics choices will be reset and will need to be made again. This means you will be able to make different choices if you so desire.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Sorry for the inconvenience.</DIV> <P>===========================<BR>Moorgard<BR>EverQuest II Community Guy</P></DIV>

<DIV>and one more copy / paste......</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> <DIV>For all of those asking....</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Every other level beginning at level 8, you gain an additional advantage - a Personal Trait, an Enemy tactic, a Racial Tradition or training ability. Each time you reach an even number you can select another advantage from the appropiate list.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Level     Advantage</DIV> <DIV>8            Personal Trait (1st)</DIV> <DIV>10          Training (1st)</DIV> <DIV>12          Enemy Tactic (1st)</DIV> <DIV>14          Personal Trait (2nd)</DIV> <DIV>16          Enemy Tactic (2nd)</DIV> <DIV>18          Racial Tradition (1st)</DIV> <DIV>20          Training (2nd)</DIV> <DIV>22          Personal Trait (3rd)</DIV> <DIV>24          Enemy Tactic (3rd)</DIV> <DIV>26          Racial Tradition (2nd)</DIV> <DIV>28          Personal Trait (4th)</DIV> <DIV>30          Training (3rd)</DIV> <DIV>32          Enemy Tactic (4th)</DIV> <DIV>34          Racial Tradition (3rd)</DIV> <DIV>36          Personal Trait (5th)</DIV> <DIV>40          Training (4th)</DIV> <DIV>42          Personal Trait (6th)</DIV> <DIV>44          Racial Tradition (4th)</DIV> <DIV>46          Personal Trait (7th)</DIV> <DIV>48          Personal Trait (8th)</DIV> <DIV>50          Training (5th)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Alot of people are not getting to choose these traits, traditions, etc....... and that is what SOE is working on fixing.</DIV></DIV>

<DIV>Excellent posts GreatReorx2, thanks a bunch!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you know of any additional information on traits, please continue the sharing of knowledge <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />. I've scimmed around, but can't find information regarding what each trait actually does (and since I didn't recieve most of them, I can't really remember which trait was which). I wonder if anyone has actually recieved some of the higher end Enemy Tactics as well - Since they apparently change each time you recieve one. </DIV>

<DIV>:smileymad:Hmm all this time and I never knew I was missing anything. And having killed 1500+ undead at lvl 21 im now mad, that could have come in handy. Arg.</DIV>

I also haven't gotten to choose any of my traits or anything apart from the 18 and below ones. Neither have any of my friends, no matter what their class. This coming from a 31 SK.And by the looks of it...I'm missing a lot. Maybe they'll be fixed within the next month.<p>Message Edited by Kilopy on <span class=date_text>12-08-2004</span> <span class=time_text>02:28 PM</span>

12-09-2004, 08:21 PM
<DIV>Hah yeah, I'm level 32 and havent gotten anything since my Mender of the mire Troll tradition at level 18 or so.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Hope we see a fix for this soon...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Skrull</DIV> <DIV>Unrest</DIV>

12-10-2004, 02:09 AM
<DIV>Add one more to the list. 24 and still haven't gotten anything since 18. I didn't even realize I was getting gypped.</DIV>

12-10-2004, 02:38 AM
<DIV>It's in testing now and by the sounds of it will be all sorted out in the next 2 weeks. Just thank the sweet lord that this isn't swg or you would have to put up with it till next christmas :smileywink:</DIV>

<DIV>If you pick a physical stat, how much is the boost?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>For my first one as a troll I forgot its name but said I would be hit less.</DIV> <DIV>Is this a agility boost and if it is, for how much?  Is it worth it or as tanks just go Sta?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If anyone has a clue what alot of this means, would be nice to see a post on exactly what these traits do, I know a fellow troll was not impressed with regen, can only use it when we are not fighting and we regen fast enough as it is then.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Haruchi</DIV> <DIV>22 Shadow Knight</DIV> <DIV>Highkeep</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Why can't we be friends.  Least till your back is turned and in weapons range.</DIV>

When I got the 2nd racial choice, I chose DIS resist and it boosted a good 40-50 points.Which was quite nice.

12-13-2004, 01:41 AM
<DIV>Just got my second Racial Trait at Level 18. Chose something that gives +10 to Stamina. Was tempted by the Summon Lager because carrying food/drink is a hassle - might get that next time <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> </DIV>

12-13-2004, 01:45 AM
<DIV>Just a reminder to those who havn't read up on it. When this problem gets fixed they are resetting everything. This means if you were not happy with your first choice you can choose something completely different.</DIV> <DIV>  </DIV>

12-13-2004, 02:44 AM
Wish they would get this fixed, level 27 now and i haven't gotten anything since 18.

12-13-2004, 04:18 AM
<DIV>Just dinged 22 last night and created my character on November 9th so they may have fixed it for those coming close to 22.</DIV>
