    The new patch looks pretty sweet, I won't have time to play until later today but looking forward to testing the changes.

    The rune book change was one I was not particularly happy about myself, but I understand the reasoning for it. That doesn't change the fact that myself and other people have spent 100+ irl dollars on them, with the understanding their use and value was a set thing.

    Please give us the option to either redeem empty books for Nithron coins, or sell to the vendor at a price that is consistent with their value in gold vs Nithron coins, and hopefully that will help myself and others to feel better about this change.

    Sorry if this should go in the patch discussion thread, but I thought the issue was important enough for its own thread.

    Thanks
    Jman

    Very good the patch. Excellent updates. The game is already very good and is getting better every day. But the runebook update was bad. Please reverse this as soon as possible.

    Runebook change was good for the game overall, but like Jman said there are some drawbacks for people who invested in them.

    BPG should remove bindstone recall, house recall, capital recall, holding portals. Wilderness portals. Then it could be popular like DND is.

    so i guess we have to remark every runes? I haven't logged-on yet. With patches like this, it's quite hard to break the ice. If i log-on, first thing i'm thinking about is marking runes.

    I never spent a dollar on runebooks, but still. Patches should promote logging on instantly to try new things. Instead, the runebook patch has made us all become quite anxious.

    It's a good patch, but the simple fact is, nobody has any runes marked to any chaos stone.

    They removed it a long while back because of siege defense issues.

    Too many people complained about enemies coming day before and marking a bunch of runes for a ambush attack during sieges.

    As to the new system I’m a bit confused still even after reading. I just need to login and see what’s up.

    The rune book change seems solid. No longer can you get insta-zerged at a spawn (unless that spawn is on top of a chaos stone). It makes logistics play a role again, and it also adds value to some areas of the map; Not having chaos stones nearby can be seen as a significant perk to holding ownership in the region.

    I didn't think they'd ever revisit rune books, considering they are monetized. I'm happy to see they did the right thing in the end... Shame the rest of the patch is just once again messing with combat so that 20 people who voted on some poll in 2018 can get their retro-experience back (2019 players don't get a voice in this).

    Ppl used to bring duo's at solo spawns like theyril golem. Like come on, theyril golem is for 1v1's, not 2v2's.

    All I ever see you write is "revert, revert, revert". You never explain why you think "revert X" is the better option.

    How has all this "reverting" worked out? Has the game gotten back those magical players that the "revert" was totally going to give?

    Maybe you can try to put one chaos stone in every area of agon ...and "connect" one sloot of the runebook whit one chaos stone from the map....or revert whitout the possibility to mark rune to close at mob spawn
