Alas, no Halas

As you have undoubtably heard, Halas won’t ship with Sentinel’s Fate. Neither will Shader 3.0, although they have gone out of their way to bring us a not-fully-tested version of Battlegrounds. They won’t be out until at least GU 56.

That is about all I have to say, sorry for the linkfest.

Until next time,

A Carnival of Air Circulators

Yes, the title is an obscure way of referring to Fan Faire. (And as you have no doubt realized, I specialize in the obscure.)

Anyway, yesterday evening, they officially announced that the adventuring level cap will be raising to 90 with the next expansion. No word yet on whether the guild or tradeskill levels will also be increased. Continue reading ‘A Carnival of Air Circulators’

Velious Dreams, and Things

As Tipa over at West Karana posted a couple of days ago, the next expansion appears to be Velious.

There are several things which support that assertion:

– The last update saw a severe change in the way that ice is rendered. With very few zones that have ice (Frosfell zones, Everfrost/EF TSO Instances, Permafrost, parts of Kylong Plains), why spend all that time, not to mention money, on something which wasn’t going to affect, by and large, most of the game in the near future?
– On test, you can find members of the Order of Rime faction. Do I really need to belabor that one with an explanation?
– I really want it to be Velious.

Ok….that last one isn’t a real supporting reason, but when has that ever stopped me? Continue reading ‘Velious Dreams, and Things’
