    .. still trying to make a fix, instead of actually building a tutorial. nice.

    everything else is great, though it would be wonderful if you could be a bit more specific about the alignment changes you're hoping to make. maybe get a little feedback BEFORE you drop it in game.

    we always like new content.

    How bout dems ban lists and a bit more information on house building. Sounds like power players are going to run away with the housing while casuals can maybe if they are lucky snipe a house in 6 months.

    I think the task system will be good. If you can also work on the map to define the new player areas alittle more for the people who have trouble noticing the mini map. I also applaud you guys for being so damn transparent with everything.

    I myself would like to see some kind of sea task added to the game that award titles and meditation points!

    Some absolutely awesome changes you guys! So happy to hear about alot of those quality of life changes. The task expansion will be great especially for reds like me, able to knock out some more quests, make some more gold =] the unique mobs also sound really really cool, hopefully you spawn them in across the world kind of at random. Makes exploring great, and the localized resources sounds like pvp hotspot heaven.

    The next batch will more than likely consist of only these kind of tasks, but we will most certainly look to add in more interesting and complex tasks in future batches. Remember - this is a system that we can constantly expand on and add in new things for you guys to work towards, which includes new kinds of task mechanics we are able to utilize.

    Big thumbs up on expanding the Task system. I think this is much better than trying to cram in too much information during a Tutorial, when a player is impatient to just PLAY THE DAMN GAME. Doing it instead by a Task system gives them incentive to learn the game, but at a pace of their choosing. Excellent, just excellent.

    I was originally concerned you'd make the initial meditation point bonus too much of a cheap "gimme", but you've worked it into a natural and fluid incentive to learn the game. Well done.

    task system is fine, but it's still lacking and buggy, needs to be tied in with the quests somehow, and race wars quests need to be removed, and quests from npc's should be available to every race regardless of npc location/race since there are no more race wars.

    the task system no matter how great, will not replace a well developed tutorial.

    mentor system is also needed

    Please dont add house crafting. Just put it all under construction, we do NOT need more crafting skills.
