  1. Hi all, thanks to certain someone deleted my post. So now I have to rewrite. Anyway, some of you might have noticed that I am no longer Secretary. To keep it simple, that I am resigning from the position for few reasons. However, I truly had great time with everyone else here. I first joined the team as someone who would simply set up and manage the forums. Then, a certain admin (looking at you Seven) threw everything at me because they didn't know how and I had vast experience in managing servers but at same time I didn't want to be admin. So the position 'Secretary' was thus born. I was pretty much something like assistant for admins. I managed everything, but now... that server is up and running, with smooth sailing. They no longer need me and I don't possess much of flame of passion. So I handed over all controls and access to the server and let them to go on, without their training wheels (me). I am confident that nobody is able to fill Secretary position any better than I did @Sevencix, my boy thanks for bringing me on board, last 6 months with ya has been real fun, if you run into any problems just poke me. Even though I'm retired, you still can ask for advice. ^^ @Tamamo-no-Bae Thanks for being patient with me! Those endless nights where we were working on the damn Prologue Talents and other various DB things. Keep up the effort you're doing it. (Make sure port ALL draenei things when Blizzard releases 7.3) @Black Widow even though there was snagfu between you and other admins, you still started the project and allowed Seven to hire me, so thanks for starting the project. I hope you're doing well now. ^^. @Zusk Thanks for being here, without your storylines and more, I don't think Tales wouldn't be here today, I can trust you to keep it up with! And to everyone else who has been with the team and server, both old and new for being here, I hope to see it growing bigger and bigger. I'll be still around but only as observer, mainly. It was good journey with ya'll. Bye, Danare
  2. It is because you didn't submit it or skipped it over - something like that. Can you please let me know your character's name so I can invalidate them and you can redo them.
  3. What kind of error?
  4. Remove the patch, open the WoW, fix your settings, once it's done, put patch back in and relaunch the WoW. It should fix the issue.
  5. We are aware of this issue, and are working on fixing it hopefully in next hotfix. Thank you for letting us know!
  6. Welcome, Vince! It's good to see you here. But you're dead inside? So you're same species as Sevencix..

  11. Prologue Talents Comprehensive Guide By Danare What is Prologue Talents? It is a system that was created by a old server that was once called “Prologue” which was led by an individual named S, this system was coded by Dynashock along with collaboration with Claiver (At least I think so). It is a system geared for character progression to give the players more freedom than ever. Each players would be able to pick two alignments: Commoner and Heroic. Both of these alignment have their own perk! If someone were to pick Commoner alignment, they would receive substantially less stats than those who picked Heroic Alignment! However, due to their lesser stats, they have greater power in impacting the economy of the server! Prologue Talents is basically a talent-based system, much like our own PvP talents, we accumulate Renown, which can be earned by having enough Tales Token (formerly Prologue Tokens) or someone else using #renown command on you. You can exchange your own Tales Token to a NPC which in turn will give you renown, but you must have 2 Tales Tokens or more! For example if you want to increase your renown twice, you must have 4 Tales Token! And so on. As for #renown, you will also need 2 Tales Token before you can #renown somebody, that somebody will get 3 renown points from you! It can be for anything, gratitude for helping you out, and so on. Once you reach 100 renown points, you will get 1 point in Prologue Talents! Once you get your first point, you can invest however you want into two of your Prologue Talents, once you’ve invested your point, you can use the perk attached to the talent! I also heard that if somebody somehow reaches 2,500 points maybe they can get special treatment…. Anyway, enough of that. Below post is list of talents by their alignment and in depth description of what talents they will have! (NOTE: Some of talents may be amended in future to further suit Tales of Warcraft, but these would only apply to third or higher tier of the talents so for time being no worries for any changes) Looking forward to everyone else reaching to the summit!
  12. The Alarmingly Productive Blog #2 Hi all! Yet new entry in our Development Diary! Some of you might know but we are using Phase C core which comes with some of brilliant systems that Phase C had, such as renown system, APTs, and yes, even Prologue Talents! Honestly speaking, we really racked our brains over this one since we couldn't get it working for newer characters. However, hallelujah! We managed to get it working (I really have no idea how we did it though.) Now, some of Phase C veterans might be quite familiar with this system, but there's some people who isn't familiar with it! In order to use Prologue Talents system, you will need at least 100 renown to get your first 1 point! How we do get renown, you ask? We get it though two methods -- First method is getting Tales Token (formerly Prologue Token) which is simply earned though playtime! You need x2 Tales Token then go to a special NPC to convert it into renown! Second method is to have SOMEONE ELSE to do #renown to you, in process sacrificing their own 2 Tales Token to increase your renown because they think you're awesome! That how you earn Renown. Now, that is all explained away, let's take look at Prologue Talents! How we do locate it? It's fairly simple, in your talents tab, there should be two (or three if you have Dual Talents spec), there should be special icon like showed beneath: See that icon that says "Prologue Talents"? We click that! Now, before I continue here, we have quite few specializations, that's divided neatly into Commoners (Civilians!) and Heroes. In this case, mine is Heroes, and I have chosen Mystic and Storyteller for my character. Check below: See? There's two tabs that clearly says Mystic and Storyteller! Now, I have I have around 3 points left! Let's fill out in my Mystic Talents, hmm? Let's see what's first talent in Mystics is... And it's Channel Energy, with two ranks! First rank, I get some awesome spells, and second rank I get some neat APTs! Check out below: Now hmm, do they really work? Let's see if I can cast Channel Fire! Yup! Now how about my Portable Braizer, oh look here it is! Well, Prologue Talents is pretty much working, but there is still some kinks in the system! Now you might be asking, "Danare! You said there's more specs than Mystic and Storyteller?!" Why, yes. Let me list out the specializations here: Mystic - Wield the fearsome power of magic to point where you might even be capable of returning from death! Storyteller - Have the ability to know the information and I heard rumors that there's some sort of secretive library that only few can enter... Warden - Have ability to grow beautiful flowers and tame flora, or to spread blight and force flora to SERVE YOU! Medic - Are you injured? Medic can heal you and let you stave away death for a bit longer...! Diplomat - Want everyone to get along and have happy peaceful world? One need to start off as diplomat first! Maybe you can enter enemy faction's cities... Stalker - Don't like being out in spotlight and just want to secretly and quietly kill your enemies? This is the spec for you! Architect - Like building things? Then BUILD ALL THINGS! BUILD MORE PYLONS! Body - Want to be stronger than everybody and be more powerful on battleground? This is for you! Brewmaster - Want to be majestic and amazing drinker along with having awesome cooking APTs?! Mmm foood... All of the specs is divided into two alignments: Commoners and Heroic. For Commoners Alignments, they will get: Medic, Architect and Brewmaster (not much choices, I know but more might be added in later.) And Heroics gets: Mystic, Storyteller, Warden, Diplomat, Stalker, and Body. That's the specs that is available to us right now. Few days before the launch, we'll release more information on how to get the talents and more comprehensive guide on how to use it! I hope you all enjoyed the Dev Diary update! Cheers, Danare
