If you could see one thing added to DL what would it be? Be realistic....

Personally I would LOVE to see a better emote system in place in the future. Other then just typing names and all that for RP use. So like you could emote and make it so it adds their name or the item or whatever into the emote and if lets say in RP someone doesnt know your name and someone does...the person who knows the name will see the name but the other who does not will see their Sdesc.
Might prove to big of a pain to put in though I would LOVE to see things added for RP purposes

Realistically? I'd like to see druids get dispel good and detect alignment. And I would like to see summon rain turn into a room spell instead of a group spell :)

I'm not sure what you want done with the sdesc strolem, but you can do a lot with emotes, and Nezmar revamped the system a while back. You can include your weapon, targets, among other things.

I would like to see Druids get a few new spells. They desperately need a decent attack spell, and maybe an improved summon rain that they get at a later level. Casks have made that spell almost useless now.

One thing I've always been dying to see implemented is a "challenge" command :)

Imagine you're level 300 with the coolest gear and all mobs are pitiful compared to you... what now?

Challenge other players! I mean I know we can do it with the RP command... but let's face it, nobody wants to lose exp or constitution points.
I think there should be a coliseum type area like an arena where death has no penalties and you can challenge people to player vs player combat.
The automatic full heal after an arena would need to be removed and a safe way implemented for players not use it excessively.

Perhaps a global restriction that the challenge command can only be used once per hour.

The way I envision it... we could have a red coliseum room, and a blue coliseum room attached maybe to the coliseum in Kandaria.
Each team could step into their respective rooms and once everybody is set as soon as one player uses the "challenge" command everybody in both rooms
would sink into an arena. The two rooms method would allow for players to make their own teams, whether it's one on one or two on one or something.


Also if PCs are all grouped in one of the rooms while the other is empty, a "mob" challenge could commence where players would face off against random mobs
in the arena, although the arena mob battles should not give experience for fairness.

Summon rain as a room spell, not just group. Idead by Samo and a challenge system idea by Aly. I second these ideas.

Players,
We're having an issue with the client not allowing "New Accounts" right now, we're working on it and will get it back up as soon as we can. If we can't get it fixed quickly, we will bring the Classic back up while we make the fix.

Just fyi, I've managed to create a new account but it's disconnects before the character creation or after logging in.

I trust everyone is able to get into the game now.

Sorry about all the bugs and problems.

I should have taken longer to plan, but I wanted to try to make the new content available and I only have limited time. Just in case it isn't clear, this is NOT my full time job.

This latest round of changes required me to build multiple server virtual machines, open up holes in the firewalls, change NATs, and make adjustments to code on both the client and server side.

I appreciate your patience and continued support of Distant Lands.

Warmest regards,

--Nezmar

P.S. I hope you all enjoy the Awakening!

I can't even run the client, my computer stops it and deletes it because it is carrying a virus with it? So I mean that is where my problems begin. No client at all.

The client does NOT have a virus in it. Windows 10 can't open it up and see what is inside so it assumes it has a virus (nice job M$). I'm pretty sure there is a work around but I don't have Windows 10 so I can't tell you what it is...

Maybe someone else who has gotten it to work could?

Best regards,

--Nezmar
