Switching a human to race

Post by _Venom_ » Mon Jul 27, 2015 9:22 am

Is there now, or will there be in the future, a way to switch a human character to a race? (other than dark elf)

We'll likely have one more chance for everyone to do a race change before things become set in stone.

Is there an eta on this event? Not being rude or anything but we've all heard bob say the same exact thing 2-3 years ago.

Here's my plan:

Finish zoning.

Finish race halls.

Go over every single skill and fine tune.

Offer up a last minute race change.

Fix up account creation/char creation.

Right now I'm recovering from surgery, hence why you all haven't seen me ingame much lately. Once that's done, I'll be back into the work. I'd give you a time frame on it - but really there's no point because I've no idea how long each task will take me.

Around the time I made this post I also asked Echo in game if this was going to happen, I wanted to know because I was either going to delete my character and remake it a race char or spend 1 mil using a skill transfer and switch it to race when the time came. I said to echo "so is it going be like a year?" and he said it wouldn't take that long. So I spent the 1 mil, still waiting.
I would appreciate it if a GM could help me out on this one, I just want one char switched, Echo clearly says in last post he intends on offering it again. It would give me a reason to log on and i'm one of the only ones who even checks around here anymore.

I would try to help get the ball rolling on this for you, but I'm still seer. Zyon may be able to assist.

I'll talk to Bob/Echo about it first.
If they agree, it's ok for me.

Btw Venom, catch me on skype to solve that issue with your house.

I still would like my Human switched. I asked if it would take more than a year, when I first asked, because I wanted to know before I spent another Million on my skill change stone, which I have already done. It's been quite a bit longer than that now. Can this be done for me? Maybe getting some staff online would get some players checking back in as well. Thanks.

Sure why not - I'm feeling generous. Catch me ingame sometime or leave me a page?
