Hi.  How are you?

We will be shutting the game down and deleting all of the player files on October 22nd sometime in the afternoon system time (MST).  Probably around 4pm.  The Pwipe Cometh.

The game will re-open at 3pm MST on October 24th, 2014.

We will use the approximately 48 hours of downtime to do a few minor tweaks to the game.  Do not expect massive sweeping changes.  The changes we are making will be announced closer to the 24th.

Questions are welcomed, answers are not guaranteed.

Have a nice day.

I know you said you'll talk closer to wipe time, but are you going to be testing any "easy-to-test" future changes in this wipe since it should be the last one before lube gets implemented? Such as smaller group size max etc?

Any ideas on the intended length of this upcoming wipe?

Any chance you are implementing alignment changes and making it just good evil neutral?

I actually think they've been slowly working on that already - I've noticed some items changed alignment restrictions since the last time I played.

Now that I know when the wipe will be I can stop logging my paladin to maintain my rent =P

I'm already getting a bit tired of Destiny, so a wipe at the end of next month will give me a good reason to stop grinding my life away for engrams... and start grinding my life away for ranks!

any chance of characters starting at age 25-30? finding a mage to haste you has always seemed weird to me.

Zones need mobs that have withering (aging) attacks.  Thus the decision to get aged intentionally stops being so obvious and common, and instead becomes dangerous.
