We have a Q&A! We're going to use this General Q&A to get through as many of your questions as we possibly can. We have a LOT already, but feel free to drop more as responses to this comment and we'll do our best to get them in. Thanks for bearing with us on this, it's long overdue.

As a heads up, we're still looking to do more team chats beyond this over the coming weeks as we lock down team availability - both on stream and through Discord Stage 'talk show' style shows.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we get these 100% locked in too - just wanted to let you know this is part of what we're doing vs the whole thing.

Why can you guys not post the updated date (5th) for the Prime Rewards? It's been posted once, I think on Reddit. You Auto-posted a tweet the other day, now this newspost says it's available now, too. ????????

Thank you for calling this out - that was meant to be pulled from the post and got missed in the publishing process obviously. Really sorry for the confusion.

Our next Prime Drop isn't ready as yet. Essentially, some issues were found in testing the rollout that meant we had to postpone it. We're still on track for sometime this month, but we can't lock a date in quite yet until this is fully figured out. We'll keep you updated as best we can (and avoid any more scheduled post surprises!).

The last time this was done we were told it would be recorded and shared. This has not been the case. It is important for those who are unable to make it to still know what has been said otherwise the entire point of this being an alternative way to communicate is thrown out the window.

We'll make sure to record them too! We're just going to do them live so we can bring the chat responses into the discussion and make it more of an open chat with each other and the community.

One of the weak points of our current Q&As is we have a lot of amazing questions up front, so chat usually helps us ask for more nuance on an answer or maybe a few added questions at the end.

Hopefully you'll feel these shows can be more deep-diving than the Livestreams can always accommodate and being there live gives you more chance to be part of the conversation. Keen to see how you all feel about it and we'd love any feedback as always.

Does anyone know what the "EAB Abilities" mention in Glacor fixes are?

Hi - yeah, these are the Extra Action Button abilities provided by the various generals around the EGWD :)

Greetings, I would like to apologise for the confusion. You have to obtain the item again to have it in the log.

THE CROESUS FRONT

  • Dyed grasping runepouches will now correctly revert to tradeable versions when all runes are removed from them.

What changed from 5-6 days ago when you said the team was working on a fix? Now it's just flat out "sorry guys, gotta get the drop again"?

I realize that when I said "We are working on a fix" (and I meant the "Scripture of Bik is missing from the Boss Collection Log" issue) I wasn't very clear. My apologies.

Why is there still no fix for marks of war from glacor? Are you just hoping that we will forget like people have for hitboxes in kerapac lightning?

Hey, Reaper points/Marks of War at Glacor were actually changed, the patch note just slipped through the cracks and was missed from the news post. I've asked CM to add it :)
