Town Crier Rumors

Free Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "You might have noticed, but those metal beings are on our side now."
Town Crier tells you, "There are rumors about that The Queen may be in trouble."
Town Crier tells you, "A new travel network has been created for all adventurers to use!"

Pyreal Rumors:

Town Crier tells you, "Asheron ran into trouble while trying to connect with his fellow Empyreans in portal space, causing many of the portals of Dereth to become unstable."
Town Crier tells you, "Fortunately he was able to create a new network containing new portals to all of those destinations, and he connected this network to all major towns."
Town Crier tells you, "It is truly great news! A faction of the Gear Knights have joined with the shadows and we humans. I must say I feel better seeing one of those giant metal beasts and knowing it is an ally."
Town Crier tells you, "Borelean has been seen in Arwic, whispers say The Queen is in danger and he needs the help of skilled warriors who are strong of mind as well as tough."

Ulgrim Rumors

Free Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Gear knights huh? I don't trust anything that doesn't drink ale. Oh they do drink ale? Well then they are fine by me, heck I think I like them better then people already."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I don't know what is going on, no matter how drunk I get today it seems I can see things more clearly. It is really messing with my mind."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Ya I heard Elysa was in trouble. Amazing how someone who went down in history as having saved the Isparians from the Olthoi can't manage to take care of herself."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Asheron messed up while messing with portal magic? Who would of guessed that would happen? Oh right probably everyone who is stuck in this forsaken miserable place now called home."

Stout Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Seriously why doesn't that old man just stop trying to "help" people. Does anyone know how many times his helping has not made things worse? Luckily for him, those ripples in portal space didn't break my containers of ale. If they had, there would be real trouble to deal with."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "You know it is slightly amusing to see a big ol' gear knight sitting on a tiny bar stool. I was about to make a joke about it when the nice fellow bought me an ale. That's all it took to win me over, good people those gear knights."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "It's bad enough that Borelean set himself up in the villa in Arwic that I was planning on moving into. But then to make matters worse, the reward isn't any form of alcohol."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "If you bother to go help that useless family, ask him why he has such a hate for the most significant invention in all of history. How was that wedding anyways, besides dry?"

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "So last night I got drunk and the world was the wonderful blur it tends to be. Then this morning I awake and the land looks oddly clear. Thinking quickly I grabbed a couple of glasses of ale and drank them down. But much to my surprise the land only got slightly blurry, not the smudged view I had grown so accustomed too. I think I'm losing my mind."

Known Issues

  • Greyed out armor graphics / brown hair&light brown skin bug when minimizing the client - persists
  • Gear Knights will only show up with 1 body style when using barber.
  • If you run low on memory then the textures will white out. This can be resolved by switching to a lower landscape texture level.
  • Certain bracers from before the patch will not be able to be unequipped without Envoy assistance.
  • Using the slots tab can cause a green or red circle to show up on the paper doll tab
  • Multi-slot pieces will only visible show in one slot after portaling around.
  • The Slots check box on the paper doll is much wider than the label which makes it difficult to select your feet and greaves on your paper doll.
  • Some areas such as the middle tower in Arwic have such steep ramps that male Gear Knights cannot climb them because of their height.
