Upon reaching level 60, each character can now receive one free Vial of Condensed Water of Life and one free Vial of Condensed Water of Death from Golem D2 at the Boutique Headquarters.

What is that mean? Condensed? Really? 8|

The first image showed up as random letters, sadly!

Feel free to express yourselves (images or otherwise) while we wait for the upcoming patch - But please, let's try to keep it lighthearted and tasteful ;)

the only thing more fun then commenting on a patch that is possibly 2 months away, is actually playing the actual patch ...

You are right, it's not like they would listen to us anyway (and that is not negative in this **special** case) ;)

However, I'm really interested in how they time releases. It appeared that the russian releases match to a certain server progression. (Glyph cost reduction came, after the majority of active players were through glyphs to allow more casual players to catch up, new content came, after a certain gear level was achieved etc... (was more obvious during the 4.x cycle with earilier patches). I don't know if this is just coincidence or planned. However 6.0 will be released when a quite some active player-groups have cleared eclipse and real announcements about the progress and indication when it xould hit the servers were only released once the 5.0 content was cleared, if I remember correctly.

On the other hand, I don't believe translating the 5.0.2 patch takes more than a month(depending on who is what being payed for translations or if it is done inhouse, assuming an average translation speed of about 2000 words/day/translator(based on our localization-departments job description) possibly a bit less as MMOs are not common stuff for most agencies). My unprofessional guess would be 2 weeks for translation into english including proffreading and another 2 or 3 weeks from english into the other localizations.

We got hints that translation of 5.0.2 was in the works as of 27th August which is about two weeks after the last patch the russian servers received (5.0.2.25).

So how are our releases timed? Do you release "once ready" or do you follow a higher plan, based on server progression? (Which would make sense for the two new instances but would be a pain for the class changes (which are the most important thing in this patch)).

Another thing: I have only seen patchnotes up to 5.0.2.18 on en.allods.com will we also get the contents of the latest russian patch (5.0.2.25)`?

Well, quite a few players will be full fabled this or next week. And then what? Obviously no astral until when? November - probably end of November?

What about realgar? If those people are full fabled, they won't need all this realgar and if the patch is coming out in November part of realgar that they will be stacking, will have been lost.

So this basically means - no reason to play allods for another month or so? And all these people who won't have anything to do in-game are actually players who spend money on this game and make it happen for all "casual" players.

Also a month of nothing to do in a game means, more time to look for something else to do so good job allods team.

there is a new 12 man raid from what I can recall and something about astral islands, besides that and class changes there isn't much to do.

There will be new sectors added in 5.0.2 where you drop upgrades (they'll also drop in Eclipse) for your weapons/wands/shields to 'enchant' them 3 times each.

@ Effreti. There will be a new sector 29 for weapon enchantments or whatever they're called.

And these enchantments will boost vigor and stamina by some small % so there will be stuff to do. And apparently they'll be worth our while as they will change into something good with 6.0 but I don't know the exact details.

Also to enchant a weapon will probably take like 3 months or so.

On the contrary, we are listening closely - Though people are mistaking lack of immediate physical action as 'deaf ears'.

The team is working tirelessly, while the notes are here to assure you that everything is being worked on and that these positives are on the way (as well as being open for further feedback). Tweaking almost every class in the interest of balance (which is only a 'part' of the update) is no 'small' task. Please keep in mind that 90% of the changes would have been born through feedback we've received over the course of the game. If we weren't listening, most of them wouldn't be happening ;)

Since the notes, we've listened to any posts made regarding inconsistencies so we could remedy them (and will continue to do so during the wait-time), and are also happy to receive more feedback & discussion regarding the changes so long as it is kept wholesome.

Unprofessional and rude? No not at all.

But lets be fair. NA was told that we would no longer be as far behind in patches as we were. RU got this patch back in July still putting us at least 4 months behind them.

We have been getting previews of 6.0 since August and 5.2 since the beginning of September. People are getting very impatient and I personally don't blame them. We should not be getting any previews until you all have a confirmed date that it will be released. These previews are what makes people impatient because they see something they like and they want it now or in a couple weeks to a month at most not 2 or 3 months later.

@Mhuldoon
With as much as you have been posting in the forums since yesterday, does this mean that we will actually see you out and about in the forums and not just posting in the Announcements and Events?
