  1. Many years ago, during either Vanilla or BC, I started a second account and bought a powerlevel-to-max-level service from a "Chinese Gold Farmer" company. Let's just say that even all the way back then, it took Blizzard two days to determine what was going on and squelch it right then and there. Lesson was learned and I never even spoke with "Real money vendors" of any kind ever since. Blizzard's had all this time since to study how these people work, and I doubt that much gets past them. Take it from someone who learned the hard way: Don't do it
  2. Ysera and Durotan

    Well if anyone would like to exchange battle.tags, please contact me through private message here on the website. Please include: 1) Name of your main, and (optional) primary alt 2) Faction of your main, and (if listed) primary alt 3) What you'd like to run together My primary main is a horde druid, guardian main spec, feral and balance off specs Primary alt is an alliance warlock, affliction main spec, demonology off spec Secondary alts are an alliance paladin and shaman, though I don't do too much endgame stuff with them Other alts are mostly intended to be leveled and their class order campaigns finished (someday, hahaha)
  3. Ysera and Durotan

    While I'm not currently playing WoW with CotP, I try to keep the option open in the future if my current playing situation ever changes. Toward that end, I'd like to ask some questions about the home servers used by the guild in WoW. How populated are Ysera and Durotan, and any servers linked to them? Are you able to regularly get LFG/LFR groups? Are they helpful and accommodating, or only interested in how quickly you can get things done so they can move on to the next? What's the faction balance like? Heavy toward one side or the other, or more or less balanced? I very rarely take part in PVP, but on those rare occasions I like not to get slaughter-ganked XD Finally, if anyone knows what servers are linked to Ysera and Durotan, could you list one or two of them? I'll admit I have no plans to change servers at this time. But if my overall gaming situation ever changes to make it viable, I'd like to have the requested information on hand. Good journeys, Holly C.
  4. Disconnect Time

    I'm going to be taking some disconnect time where I will be around in game less often. This happens every so often and is no cause for alarm unless I specify otherwise haha. I will poke my head up and say hi occasionally so you know I haven't forgotten you all. I might even pop in to try my hand at one of the new Uprisings, but that will be uncommon.

  5. Grade 7 Starship Upgrades

    Maybe that's because they used to be for sale on the CM. They must still have some kind of code signature that triggers the mouseover text. Thanks for the answer.
  6. When I mouseover the Grade 7 Spaceship equipment on sale from the Starship Upgrades Vendor on the Fleet (Ensign Brukes for Imperial), the item shows as "Unlocked for this character in Collections." However, I cannot find the item in my Collections tab. I remember that grade 7 Spaceship upgrades used to be available via the Cartel Market, and was later removed. But are the items available in Collections, or not? I've never really explored the Collections tab so I don't really know how it works.
  7. Galactic Datacron Master

    I'm interested in this.
  8. Welcome Game Fossil

    I totally missed this thread = Shame on me, huh? Nice to meet you all. I'm Game Fossil; Holly for short. Fossils are people too! haha
  9. I didn't log into the game at all yesterday. Sorry I missed it. TBH, however, I prefer to remember and honor Carrie for her tireless, courageous work advocating in the field of mental illness. I'm a psychiatric outpatient myself, diagnosed schizoaffective/borderline Asperger's. A different battle than the one Carrie waged, but yet, the same. She fought bravely to combat stigma, and I hope to make a worthy pupil. As much as I liked her performance in the Star Wars movies, it was what she did away from the screen that I'd like to remember and honor, first.
  10. Been away a long time

    Hi Oort, thanks for responding. I've thought about it, and I agree it wouldn't hurt to post here for all the RIFT players to read and possibly respond for themselves. I guess I'll start by asking, what was this decision Trion made for the current expansion that has caused a lot of players to go inactive? What did they do that results in a lack of content for max level? Second, I suppose I should ask the average time spread when I'm most likely to find guildmates on and active, and when I'm least likely to. I can be something of a night owl, and even though I live in the Eastern TIme zone, I've been in guilds (and on Pacific Time servers) where, even with a lot of Pacific Time players, after 11:30 or so PM, Eastern Time, I was all but alone when online and in game. And, while my saying that I've been away for a long time should probably make this obvious, I'm going to state it anyway, so the RIFT team knows what they're getting into if they ask me to join their ranks. I've missed the entire Nightmare Tide Expansion. My characters are all still at the level cap for 2.0, while I believe we're now in 4.0? I had to google the level cap-- and even the name-- for Storm Legion, can you believe that? Haha. But my characters are all level 60. I missed the entirety of Nightmare Tide. I need to do more than just catch up in level. I absolutely, positively, NEED to see what I missed. And I need to NOT do it all alone. I tried to return to RIFT a couple of months ago, but my return lasted no more than week or so when it became clear that not a single person in the guild I joined, wanted to accommodate me. The guild leader wanted to power level me in one of the dungeons through mentoring-- Charmer's Caldera, I think it was called? God I feel ridiculous, I can't even remember the name of the zone it's in... it's a desert zone not far from the Defiant starting zone. But the leader was going to use that dungeon to powerlevel me to 65 and then, as he said, "Seeing the Nightmare Tide story will take an hour, at most." (EDIT: Charmer's Caldera, not Chancer's, and it's in Droughtlands or Shimmersand... googled it >_> ) But that's not what I need. I need, not to have to solo the entire expansion. I DON'T need everyone with me all the time. But I need a few people, some of the time. Besides, I was hoping to see more than just the quests. I was hoping to do some of the Rifts, some of the zone events, if people still do those at all anymore... There were times on Storm Legion when I could chase rifts and zone events, and always had so many people to do them with. Last time I tried, I felt so alone, I lost the will to try. Time was, in RIFT, I didn't need to rely entirely on the guild for things like Rifts and zone events. If nobody does those things anymore... then yes, I can understand why I'd be out of things to do once I saw the story. Bottom line, the TLDR version: The only reason I still play MMO's of any kind at all, is to find people to be social and interact with. Because as much as I dislike it personally, I can watch the story on Youtube. I ended up uninstalling WoW from my computer because it was clear I'd never catch up to my guildmates, progress wise. Even though I was at level 110, I was still finishing quests and exploration (for Legion Pathfinder, necessary for flying), and I still needed to do normal dungeons when they were trying to do ONLY mythics with keystones. And I couldn't solo the entire expansion. I got bored. Things became tedious. And WQ's became like dailies, where people were more competition than potential group mates. Try to group and they decline, and try to grab all the quest mobs and objectives for themselves alone, to hell with you. I need to be with people online. Otherwise I can just watch a DVD or read a book. Social action is the only reason I still play. If folks on the RIFT team in CotP would feel that this is too much of an imposition on them-- and please believe me, I *DO* understand how and why they might see it that way-- but if they do, it's better if I simply don't try to return to RIFT. If it's unfair to everyone else for me to balk at catching up entirely on my own time, then I've missed the final bus out of town and have to accept it. Maybe it is better if I write this all out for the whole team, so they can all see what I'm looking for in a game, as well as just a guild, and they can offer feedback accordingly. I'll be more than glad to help anyone else with whatever I can, in return for having people to interact with. It felt therapeutic just writing this, and for that I thank you all. Have a Happy Holiday! Holly C. / Game Fossil
  11. Been away a long time

    I joined COTP's SWTOR team a week or two ago. Are we allowed to play more than one game with COTP? I've been away from RIFT a long time. I've been thinking of playing again. I'd like to speak in private message with an officer who can, and is willing, to answer a few questions. I see Oort is the team leader. Should I message her, or one of the officers who specializes in recruiting? I think I have a couple of toons on Greybriar. If not, shard transfer in RIFT is free so it's no biggie. The name's Holly, aka Game Fossil.
  12. I recently specced my Sage Balance, and have been reading the flow chart under Combat Proficiencies (K key default) for it. Any Balance Sages, please post tips and advice on rotation/priorities? I very rarely play my Sage anymore, but it's nice to know.
  13. Hello CotP

    Welcome to COTP. Cantina's open.
  14. Saying hello, and

    For some reason, I thought I already did that But that was just to register for the website hahaha. I just finished the real application about five minutes ago. I'm undecided whether to bring any alts aboard. I have one toon of each class, but in KOTET especially, I play very, very little on any alts. On the Pub side, only Breasha is above level 65, and my Vanguard and Guardian are babies. In case anyone's curious: I pronounce my character name, "bree-AH-sha." It's a Russian girls' name, and I have no idea if I'm pronouncing it correctly or not haha >_>
  15. Crafting question

    No, those components you are talking about are only used to make Augmentation Kits. Those are easy enough to come by; I can get them by RE'ing assembly components. Also, nobody really uses any grade of Augments lower than the max grade, since anything lesser is outgrown in a couple of days. I'm talking about sliced tech parts that are only acquired by sending companions out on Slicing Crew Missions. Schematics for barrels, hilts, armorings, mods and enhancements all demand them. This bothers me, even though it was also the norm in KOTFE.
