Avatars still disabled?

Hello, just for general question i have quest - summon avatar, so i runed around by getting ice shards after Update that “enable gods” i maked YMIR, so i lost temple… T4 priest… and basic i cant even drop True name of YMIR… but when i try to summon him this is what happens “Gods are disabbled” like it has before, and well, after 6 hour timer i lose it… why is that so?

If this is bug i will rewrite this into that panel…

As far as I know, avatars should be enabled on official servers, but only for PC right now. If you’re playing on a private server, then you should contact your server admin. If you’re playing on PS4 or Xbox, then you might be out of luck. If you’re playing on PC official servers, then I think this is a bug.

Correct, Avatars where suppose to be active on July 2nd update/hotfix as seen here:

Apparently this never happened and I can’t find anything or anyone officially saying it couldn’t happen, so either the forgot to activate them with everything else that’s happening or simply forgot to say it got postponed once more due to, well, everything that’s happening. @Ignasis

I heard anecdotally from someone I used to play with that the summoning of avatars was causing server crashes, so perhaps they got redisabled?

Official and PC… Server has even announcement of " Decay timers and avatars enabled" i am able to make true name, but i cant summon them… Says admin disabled ( official server) so probably bug, otherwise why i can make true names but not summon them… ( timers also work…)

Same here just checked 5 minutes ago. Still no avatars. Went to our altar, and the only option is the protection bubble. PvP official server.

Seems like the same is happening on Official 1931. Another clan was trying to use avatars and they said that it would not work and is still disabled. I checked the server settings and it showed Disable Avatars with a check mark.

Since they spent a lot of time farming the avatar today, that would be crappy if Funcom disabled avatars again (or never turned on) without notifying.

I hope they stay disabled for now, bringing them back at this point would cause to much chaos with all these undermesh locations and ping exploiters running around.

I share the same concerns but if avatars are truly not enabled then Funcom should notify folks so they don’t spend the time trying to farm them.

Problem is that, u can make those stupid “true names” but u can’t use them, and the update is live, because decay timers… i think something bugged with them again… otherwise what the hell … In the image i added u can see that i have “Quest” to summon him, and even that true name inventory ( now he is gone 6 hours passed, loosed priest T4 and altair ) , soo if i can make names, and the timers are 6 hours ( new update) why summoning is disabled on all servers except singleplayer?

@NeoTheMatrix The only bug is that the newer religions allow you to see the god tokens and craft them even though the gods are disabled. The older religions such as mitra, yog and set have the tokens hidden (which makes more sense). The fact that you can’t summon them is actually normal due to the summoning being disabled in the settings (no bug here).

However, I agree with @Octavian. Having a server notice that says that the gods are enabled as of 2nd but they are still not on 4th is not ideal and should be looked at.

@Narelle Well, okay but if i use only YMIR… sure i dont know that they are disabled even if @Ignasis Announcements say they are enabled… All server PVP PVE PVE-c says “Gods enabled” but in settings they are offline, basically because of that message in server i wasted 2 days for ice shards lost altar T4 priest, and “True name”…

Ah yes not even talking about how homes decay randomly even timers are maxed out…

So I did some more testing and it looks like you can only make the “True Name” coins for some gods.

So far I have only tested Set and Jhebbal Sag. We don’t have the shrines to test the other gods yet. Results:

  1. Set - True Name" coin NOT available. Can only use the protection bubble.
  2. Jhebbal Sag - BOTH “True name” coin and protection bubble available.

Can anyone with the other god shrines look and see which ones are available and please post your results here?

PS: Also on the Official PvP server we play on, when you go to Server Settings->Combat->Disable Avatars, it is checked, so don’t think you can even summon them still. I don’t want to waste an archpriest and T3 shrine to test it though.

Sorry i can’t post any images except the one i did post already… because i was too stupid to Make them ( u can make YMIR an Jhebal) Set/Mitra does not show up

P.S i found some “message” of ignasis, that servers need reset before gods are enabled but what the hell is that we can make true names before restart then… okay never altairs… but still that announcement and those who use ymir first as me feels like idiots, i lost altair, true name , time, and priest t4…

That information may be incorrect? It’s been 2 days since the update so officials had 2 restarts already. Or does he means reset as in wipe?

On all official server types avatars disabled in settings.Idk what change update-but not avatars

I am wondering if this a goof on Funcom’s end or g-portal’s?

The servers are hosted by G-portal, and I am thinking someone would have to uncheck the “Disable Avatars” checkbox for all of those servers. Is that something Funcom would have to do or G-portal?

I honestly have no idea who has to do it. I don’t know how the mass update on officials work.

The thing with being able to summon certain tokens like Ymir has been a thing for awhile.

It is sad how Funcom makes this 7-2 claim for them to be turned back on then give 0 updates in regards to it days after not turning it on.

It’s like they just don’t care…
