  1. Yes. Basically, the higher the rank of a node, the less damage your tool will do but also the higher the average quality of the harvested resources will be. A higher rank means that you are rolling on a different loot table. There is a pretty old news article about that on mmorp.com, but most of the informations there are still valid enough to get the basic idea. Basically, the higher the rank of the node, the higher quality resources you may be able to get out of it. Wether you will be able to get it (or not) and how fast (or slow), mostly depends on the power (damage) of your harvesting tool, your current plentiful harvest rank (mostly resource skill and potions bonus versus parcel and season difficulty malus), your ability to create a critical harvest result and other smaller details. The rank defines the general loot-table. Plentiful harvest and critical harvest define the final result. As far as i know.
  2. Enhanced testing. If the usual limit of concurrent players is too small to support the number of your citizens, you can ask support@crowfall.com for an upgrade. It's not usual to do so and up to now they need to do it manually and it can cause issues. So it should be avoided if not definitely necessary (like for big and already well frequented EK markets).

    There is no reason (and no reasonable way) to "delete" your kingdom. Strt the playtest environment. Go to -> Kingdom (click "enter") -> click "Browse kingdom" -> click on your own EK The infomation window will on which server your EK is currently hosted. Click on the wheel, as shown in the picture, to change the location to currently available servers. Be aware that this option is NOT YET always working right now. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. If not sure, report not being able to change your EK location in the according bug report thread (if time doesn't matter to you) or call support@crowfall.com (if you are kind of serious in a timely manner). On a personal note: In my personal experience EK stuff doesn't really matter currently, since fighting and server performance seems to be a more important matter at the moment (and rightly so). So i would suggest to keep calm about any EK related stuff, until the currently more important problems have been solved. But, of course it is important to report anything, and if only to make sure the developers know about it. They will definitely read it all. They will take it into account. And they expect and rely on us to report any problems. Support is in most cases the best receipient to adress important manners. Have fun and good luck with your EK. And feel free to post any follow up question if necessary. Kraahk
  4. No. Except of guesses. Maybe early next year, maybe late this year, maybe early this year. In the order of your question.
  5. I hide myself. Works for me. Maybe you should try it, too.
  6. Not able to accept new members, though member numbers are far from the limit.
  7. I explicitly like the point of the company clearly mentioning that there will have to be cutbacks from the original vision, if the game should be published within a timely manner. I always dislike if people/companies say they can do it ... and then they don't. Providing and establishing open communication is important in community-driven games and companies. It's the right thing to do. It may not always be what we want to hear. But it is what we need to hear. I can only hope that most of us heard it - and that those who didn't, will be told so by those who listened now. Anyways, in the end you will be able to say "we told you so". In my opinion, it was the right thing and the right time. So, thanks for that.
  8. thanks @Jah where is the "exactely this" button again?
  9. Dunno what you are talking about. I'm from europe... nuff said...
  10. Welcome to the forums. This questions has been answered in the posts before. Just saying. However, this is the original message from the official Crowfall Discord: So, yes, LIVE is down and meant to be down. You will need to test on the TEST server, accessible via the TEST client, which you can download here: (LINK). After agreeing you will get to a site that offers both the LIVE and the TEST patcher. Choose the TEST patcher and install it in a seperate folder. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  11. Hi Ilvie, es gab da leider ein paar Missverständnisse, was den Ablauf und die zugehörigen Ankündigungen betraf. Statt dem angekündigten Start von 5.8 auf dem LIVE Server wurde der LIVE Server geschlossen, damit alle Spieler auf dem TEST Server (wo 5.8 für alle verfügbar ist) testen. Anscheinend gab es doch noch einige Probleme, die es zu testen und zu beheben gilt. Dazu werden mehr Spieler auf dem Server benötigt. Man wollte aber vermeiden, das auf dem LIVE Server zu tun, wo Leute verständlicherweise eine besser funktionierende Version erwarten würden. Da hätt ich mir die Antwort ja sparen können. Egal, geschrieben, also wirds abgeschickt. Du wirst immer schneller. Langsam muss ich anfangen Angst zu haben. btw: Was hat das eigentlich mit der Übersetzung des Clients zu tun?
  12. Welcome to the forums. Like BarriaKarl said, parcels have limited space for buildings (called token) of a certain size (xs/s/m/l/xl) and type (civil/military) which is specific to the parcel type. Here is a list of the current limits in 5.7 You can only place buildings on a parcel, if your vessel is currently on it and the limit is bigger than 0. Open your inventory to see the remaining tokens on the current parcel (in the order as mentioned above). Only Stronghold parcels (=those in the list above) provide tokens. Resource parcels (like the woodland grove) don't. The whole token system is not yet refined. It's just a first implementation. There is currently not a single parcel that would allow to place the full stronghold which it was associated with. So, don't worry if you run out of tokens ... thats normal. If you need more tokens, you need to build a bigger parcel. This can be done via Stonemasonry-Geomancy. You can use smaller stronghold parcels as components. The overall resource cost is shown in the list above. More informations can be found in the official EK FAQ for example. Hope this helps a bit. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  13. Usually different names mean different designs. There has been (in general) no definite informations about those differences yet. Adding to that the "Noble House Guild Hall" is a very new term (and one that hasnt been explained in specific yet - it just popped up silently in the shop). But if you are interested to get more into the topic, you might want to take a look at this post and the pictures/videos in it for the garrison, and the pictures in this article about the first design ideas and the pictures/videos in this post about more recent ingame tries, regarding different types. Have fun, good luck Kraahk edit: all differences are purely visual. unless a certain "level" has been mentioned for the item. so, guild hall is guild hall. same functionality no matter from which era and which name it carries. as far as we know up to now.
  14. Roleplay or Crows of a Feather, both possible. The first one focusses on RP (roleplay), the second one focusses on PR (public relations). You choose. Have fun, good luck.
  15. One of the last chances to get a (nearly) free stronghold for testing. 5.8 is getting nearer (Beta-3 already invited to the test servers). So it won't be long now and i won't invest a lot of time to keep it running. 21 strongholds already been given out. I'll offer three more over this weekend and then close this opportunity until the next full wipe arrives. Current offer: Capital parcel, Greathall, several hundred wall parts - 13 ingame gold pieces alltogether, at the north-east vendor of the Kraahk's Ravenheart EK. Thanks to all who participated and hope you had fun testing building stuff. ------------------------- update: sold out. EK is now in offline-mode until 5.8 arrives (or someone asks me to open it)
  16. Welcome to the forums. Adding to what Arkade already said, just yesterday Beta-3 players got their first access to 5.8 on the TEST server. Beta-3 is currently the lowest level to get access to the LIVE server, too. So it's likely that 5.8 (and it's complete wipe) will hit the LIVE server pretty soon. Regarding that, it wouldn't really make sense to start a new 4-week campaign on the LIVE servers. So, congratulations for being able to cooperate with friends to find solutions. This is a rare ability that will be needed in 5.8 and will support your success there. ~thumbsup~ Consider it a useful training. And prepare your friends to start big with 5.8 on LIVE. You already accomplished the first steps. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  17. More or less. Though issues with getting into the playtest environment and exploits/unexpected features should be send to support@crowfall.com.
  18. Nope, they won't do it. I mean, of course they do it, but they don't share it. Was one of the first things we asked back in the days. We get news twice a week and features they are going to implement within the next three months usually get announced quite early. Unless they want to make a surprise party, what up to now happend about once or twice a year. Beside that things are just to fluid and to many things change due to player feedback and suggestions. Sometimes dramatically. And so does the schedule. I would like to see a dashboard, too. But i think it's understandable that they won't do it.
  19. Welcome to the forums. Well, in my experience and opinion, basically EK's are the player housing areas of Crowfall. They are not meant to directly influence the campaigns (you can't transfer walls into campaigns for example), so having a lot of stuff won't help you winning. You can use strongholds to create market places, social hubs, crafting centers, pvp arenas and similar things. They only provide the least quality resources. So, it's a nice thing to have, but it's not really a have-to. Though being able to craft in the EK's, without any danger, might count as an advantage.
  20. november 29th ... looks like winter is coming. with no solution yet...
  21. Hi PapaPanda and welcome to the forums. The 5.8 wipe will reset everything. Except of your memories (at least that's how it works for most people, so, fingers crossed). It's basically as if you would log into the server for the first time. All bought content will be reset, too and will be available to be redeemed again in the puchases tab. There is an official Eternal Kingdoms FAQ that answers most basic questions and might be interesting for you. If you have any specific question afterwards, just let us know. Basically Eternal Kingdoms are the housing areas of Crowfall and you can bring the spoils of war campaigns into into it to make it bigger and more impressive and more efficient for crafting and trading purposes. Every high-end object and every standard issue of the walking troops (runetools, weapons, armor, resouces,...) is worth selling if the price is good enough. You may want to visit some of the established trading EK's to see what they offer and to compare prices. We haven't heard anything about the embargo system for a long time now. Basically the idea is that you put stuff you would like to "win" into the embargo vault and after the campaign ends, you can take a certain amount of it with you, depending on your personal result in the campaign and depending on the regarding world and worldband rules. But, not implemented yet. So for now - as far as I know - the first 5.8 live campaign will be a fight for the honor of victory. But I may be wrong. And even if not, it could change anytime. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  22. Oh, and yes, Beta 1 and Beta 2 are the test-access-levels, just like Barria said in your language sub-forum. It is of course always the better one that counts for your access (so, you are Beta 1).
  23. Regarding pledge bundles and pe-sale packages, consuming is the Crowfall term for unbundling. Consuming will delete your bundle and add it's contents as single items to your backer reward list. This is for example necessary if you would like to transfer single items of your bundle to another account via the gifting system (though not everything can be transferred, some are bound to your account). Currently it is not necessary to consume your bundle. You can test the game and use the content (if already available in game) without that. Hope this helps. Have fun, good luck Kraahk
  24. It's not really about the forums. It's just an indicator. The "Tester" title confirms that your are entitled for ingame testing. So yes, you should make sure to wear it (but first make sure you really can't download/start the TEST client). I don't know the details of your first ticket (and nobody but the team should), so I can't really give you any specific recommendations. But speaking in general, keep your ticket as simple as possible. Like "I am a KS sapphire backer (alpha-1) on my Account XXX, but i can't download the 5.8 TEST client. Please check it and entitlement my account accordingly. Thanks." Also remind that today is thanksgiving in the US. That's not necessarily connected to "thanks for giving test access", so if you can bear it - do it tomorrow to allow them having their holiday.
  25. He never was gone. Infidels!!!
