*sighs* Even when I try not to rush I keep forgetting things. I even made a grossly mistake too! So here is to address all that!
First off, I must apologize for a terrible mistake I did in the “Second Beta Weekend Day 1 – Changes and Additions” post. In there I said that dyes you add to your collection are account wide. Turns out it is only added to the character you used the dye bottle with. I only found that later when I went to play with my coercer. The posts already has been corrected and next time I will try to make sure this kind of glaring error doesn’t happen. EDIT: As Syl pointed out in the comments of this post, it might be a bug. I will try to verify that in the next beta weekend and if the same thing happens again I will /bug it. Then perhaps we might have some answer if it is working as intended or just a bug.
EDIT #2: As ArcherAvatar pointed out in the comments, the dyes were actually changed to be character bound now. Not account wide. If this situation changes I will point it out in a future post.
Also, I put some screenshots in the previous posts about the second beta weekend. They aren’t terribly good I admit and I made the mistake again of not taking as many screenshots as I could. Hopefully I won’t make the same mistake in the next beta weekend. Someone who did not make that mistake was Paeroka of Nerdy Bookahs. She took 285 screenshots of the Black Citadel, the charr city, and uploaded the 80 best ones. You can find it here.
Now the things I forgot about….
Wayfarer Foothills, the norn starting area, felt fairly balanced compared to the charr starting area in the previous beta weekend. There was some challenging fights, yes, but nothing that felt unfair. All the deaths I suffered were either because I tried to bite more than I could chew or because I did something really stupid. Well, there was that brief lag of hell too but they fixed that pretty fast and it was smooth sailing from then on. 🙂
To be fair, I haven’t checked the charr starting area this time. So I can’t say if they changed it from the first beta weekend. I might check it on the next one. If they did, there will be some revenge against certain stone golems! *shakes fist*
