Bug that was introduced in the last patch is still here: Campfires and Furnaces do not stop when they run out of work to do, they keep burning fuel until stopped manually or until they run out of fuel.

I updated today and it seems I’ve lost the ability to change the weather severity in the admin panel now. When I was able to put it to 0 with NO RAIN, I was able to play. Now after today it won’t keep the setting. I’m so frustrated! I have an amd/realtek combo and since the last big patch that ‘fixed’ the rain, I have not been able to play without a hard freeze. It freezes so hard I can’t control+alt+delete or can I alt+tab out of it. Yes, I know you fixed the alt+tab but not the freeze! Please, please allow us to stop the rain so we can play.

A bug that was introduced in the first pets testlive patch is back – multiple mobs are spawning in the same spot. For example, I just fought my way through Tarman’s Berth, and the southern guard was actually three fighters standing in the same spot, the archer under the east tent was two archers, and the northern guard was two fighters in the same spot (one of them named).

When this happens it bends or breaks aggro, so they usually (but not always!) don’t move or attack until they’ve been hit.

Call to arms event doesn’t really interest me so I’m going to list all my bugs I find here.
Cheers.

All Jhebbal Sag priests are using claws of Jhebbal Sag?
Is this a bug or is this as intended

Cause I like it :+1:

Also can I equip all my thralls with the claws and do they still expire in there inventory’s??

I don’t know if this is a bug or just ill-conceived, but the hatching time on pet eggs is tied to the food spoilage setting for the server, so my eggs had a hatch wait time of 273 hours. Which is a bit nuts, so I either had to choose between having my food spoil left and right and have a decent hatch time or wait for days for anything to hatch.

Please change this and tie it to Pet crafting time like it should be.

Edit: OK apparently the hatch time and spoil timer aren’t the same thing. My eggs actually hatched before the timer ran out. Still, maybe the UI could do a better job of explaining what’s going on.

  1. Journal reset display. (Signed off after reaching level 12. Completed several Journal steps. When I logged on a few hours later, Journal has the basic Eat, Drink, Climb steps displayed even though I already did those.) I’m still getting credit for other Journal steps, but the log still displays those same basic three that were already done.

Testlive US Server - PvP

EDIT: After death, the Journal reset to normal. Looks like an intermittent issue rather than a systemic one.

Put the eggs in a compost bin. Cuts the time down greatly.

So far 12h later there is a chest from a camp that has not reset it self, it has loot in side of it that lasts for 12h. The camp Meadowwatch on EU1 i dont know if it’s only buged on this server and if other chests are affected as well.

Thanks for the tip, but I’d still like them to change it to something more reasonable. But it gives me an alternative in the mean time.

On EU1 i noticed on again some camps NPC just stack on their spawn points. For example instead of one guard or entertainer there will be 2 or 3. It’s like the game calculated the npc died a couple of time and respawned it’s replacement a few times.

I think it’s related to spamming animals. Since animals can go around you don’t see that they spawn multiplied. In camps it’s a problem cause thralls usually stand in the same one spot so if 3 of them spawn they stand in one point.
I’m mentioning animals spamming cause since this patch I saw many goats near freyas camp where there was always around 2 or 3 of them now it’s 15-20
