      Re: Wallaru Test realm is online!

      This may be one of or the shortest new world section in an update notes that I’ve seen in a while, if ever. Literally 2 paragraphs, then one for the new spells. The rest is just guild and beastmoon really. Way to hype up the new world, KI /s

      I cannot imagine Ki would think of creating a whole new Guild Island before the obvious idea of implementing a Guild Attic. But here we are. Must I create another thread (I think I made one before) suggesting a Guild Attic? Anyhow, I'll get into the specifics of my opinion of what we did happen to get in a separate thread about this part of the update.

      About the Update Notes themselves, it seems so... short... and vague. I know Test Realm has only been up a fee hours but it couldn't hurt to be more detailed.

      If they couldn't be bothered to make the effort to type out a fee paragraphs, I cannot imagine how little effort they would put into the world itself but I type this expecting to be proven wrong. Like, seriously??

      Novus was the same way. I just took a quick look. It was only 2 short paragraphs too. I thought Novus was a pretty good world. Not the best, but pretty nice. I'm sure plenty of people will be heading to TR and will be happy to tell us about soon.

      The problem for me is that we STILL haven't got our promised expansion to Monstrology. It's been nearly a year!

      Well, I have to say that I found it easy enough to get to Wallaru, but then I found Hope Springs to be kind of... annoying. It doesn't really seem like this world is ready to be in Test Realm. None of the quests gives more than 1 Gold and a bit of experience, and none of the creatures drop anything. The spiders I encountered were not extractable for Monstrology, and the accents - sorry, voice actors - are all over the place. The vendors don't really sell anything I want to buy,

      I'll wait a little before trying it again, maybe I'm just not in the mood for this.

      To think enemies don't drop more than 1000 gold in the, what is this, 18th world?? Anyhow, I'll touch on thar later. I don't know about what Ki could do about the accents though. Hiring voice actors is not an easy task and is quite expensive (as it should be!).

      I truly wonder what is going on behind the scenes. There must be a spreadsheet organizing all of the mobs, shat they drop, and what kinds of extract are required for them. But for some reason, going through that list is difficult for them? Or perhaps they leave their office and don't pick up from they were last off upon returning the next morning? I would hope everything I'm theorizing is completely ridiculous.

      I personally don't need mobs to drop a ton of Gold, if there isn't anything in the new world to spend it on. The Housing Vendor I found only sells Ice themed housing items that can be found in earlier worlds. There was a honey-themed snack vendor, but no new Wallaru snacks to purchase (unless I missed it as I scanned the list).

      That's... disappointing. But then again, the Statue vendor in Puerto Nuevo is something I appreciate despite everything in that shop was previously created housing item. If there's a Ice-Themed housing vendor, perhaps there's one for every other school, though I don't know the context as to the Ice Themed housing vendor.

      All I've been hearing has been that the world is lackluster.
