I could be wrong, but I believe calling people out for things that have happened in game on the forums is a rulebreak

What defines 'calling out' vs 'using a situation as an example', in this case? The use of a direct name/quote or an indirect citation of something the person did?

Discussing of pvp situations is also a rulebreak, even using it as an example, and I'm pretty sure that discussing things that happen IC also is frowned upon

The Empower Spell metamagic issue with Thieves' Bane causing the door to be un-unlockable seems to have been fixed. 

Maximize spell only works on Eldritch Blast, it's too high for the other abilities.

As for the other metamagics (extend spell, still spell, silent spell) I haven't tested those at all, but I'll do so later on today.

The sulfur in the fire cave in Hazlan sometime spawns at an awkward angle, making it impossible to 'bash' or mine the ore

Do you have examples with screenshots?

I'll fix this, thanks.

As mentioned before, the fix is on the test server; have you tested there?

I could be wrong, but I believe calling people out for things that have happened in game on the forums is a rulebreak as they are not able to defend themselves without also outting themselves. Even if it's not I'm of the opinion that is just a courtesy that should be given to players.

Regardless, I agree. If you feel there is an issue then reporting it a more construction solution than trying to police it yourself or gripe about it to other poeple. It's also the least aggravating as you can just forget about it and move on, letting people with the authority and ability to do anything about it do so, assuming anything is even needed.

Aura of Flame does not last for 24 hours like the tooltip suggests.  I'm not sure what its actual time is, but it seems to go away shortly after leaving combat.



In addition, the only VFX that Aura of Flame gets is a orange glow similar to a ring of resistance.

For some reason, Word of Changing does not seem to be correctly turning enemies into the the shape.  I tested this againsts rats in the Vallaki Sewers using Word of Changing (Tortoise).

Additionally, Ennervating shadows is still having an incorrect tooltip for subsequent checks.  I'm not sure if the drain effect is correctly working or not for that DC, however.

I'll fix these. Thanks for the reports!

Thieves' Bane has a 0 DC for the reflex save when dispelling a door/object locked by it.  Additionally, there is no DC for when I get hit by my own Thieves' Bane AoE.

Also, empowered Thieves' Bane does not seem to work on the damage or at all.

I've found the cause but could you test if metamagics work when unlocking the door? Also, does Maximize Magic work at all (might not be available because of spell levels though).

We can encourage them to go elsewhere, but ultimately it is the player and the DMs choice.

This is why I do not report (and do not plan on doing that).

We all (players, devs, CC, etc.) know in more or less detail who are the higher levels, what are the designed zones, etc. It is not unlawful, prohibited or forbidden to bring a levl 17 (at least) wiz do the Quarry (area designed for a party of lvl 9), the server is open to many playstyles and this is GOOD.

As it was pointed somewhat ironically above "grandpa also wants a shot at the playstation". We all want to have fun! We all have our lives and want a shot at the nostalgy machine.

The problem is that between the "Ideal Playstyle" and the "prohibited paystyle" there is a gray zone. I'd prefer that my fellow players tried to adhere to a playstyle that brings optimum enjoyment of the server, but between reporting and debating in the forums, I'll go with debating any given day.

I think my point was that rather than call out individuals in a public forum for the way they enjoy playing, keep it to a discussion between you and the DM team.  If you notice the same lvl 20 bogarting low level content, then it's worth reporting because they have little business monopolizing resources, whether it be loot, crafting materials, or something else.  If it's something that only happens occasionally, there's probably a reasonable explanation for why they're there, in which case, we shouldn't be calling them out on the forums for playing the way they like to play.

Unfortunately, we can't control how other players behave. We shouldn't try. We can only control our own experiences which means adapting to the "living world" that's happening around us.

I can agree that you have a point. I'll try to approach the question with less bitterness.
