The Warhammer Online Herald has been updated with information indicating that the Wild Hunt has been extended until September 14th. The extension is due to the disabling the Live Event Herald NPC which was causing instability issues on WAR servers. The NPC will most likely be reactivated after routine maintenance on Tuesday, September 14th.
PLEASE NOTE: This does not affect players ability to complete all of the tasks associated with the Wild Hunt, simply the ability to collect the rewards associated with the Live Event. Players will once more be able to collect their rewards once the Live Event Herald has been re-enabled following weekly maintenance.
As a result of the Live Event Herald being temporarily disabled, we will be extending the period in which players are able to collect their rewards for the Wild Hunt by a week. As a reminder, the Wild Hunt Live Event will conclude on 9/14/2010, so be sure to complete your tasks prior to Tuesdayâ€™s maintenance.
â€œWeâ€™ve always had that thought in the back of our heads: That Old Republic should be all the things we thought an MMO would be in the first place â€“ which is all the parts of an RPG. Which means â€“ and this is the most radical idea â€“ it should just be fun. Like, just fun to play. You shouldnâ€™t be trying to ignore all of the content to get to the end as fast as possible.â€
Things arenâ€™t completely bleak, however, as Daniel does note that a few of the more recent MMOs have been offering better content, albeit only in the early or â€œfirst 20â€³ levels, though, at least to Daniel, itâ€™s still not up to snuff.
