    will patch 80 be at the same time as the vday patch?

    if not, do you have an estimated date?

    @Chris I wasn't able to find information on the level 7 monsters in the compendium, might be good to add.

    The archery change is underwhelming. Archery was a great skill during this era. Thanks for the rest.

    What's the likelihood of seeing a variant of the sandstone house w/ patio that features a door to the patio?

    I would rate the likelihood of seeing new house designs in the next couple of years at 1%.

    Personally I'd like to see an annual contest in which people create and submit custom house designs on test center, where the winners in each category (small, medium, large, massive, and maybe the highest non-category winning vote getter, determined 50% by player votes and 50% by staff votes as the house deco contest is) are added as deeds on the live server, but this idea hasn't gotten much traction.

    There's a thread in the development forum with a number of impressive designs:

    ...But I wouldn't hold your breath, especially not until moats are in.

    ...I would encourage you to change this to say "We encourage PvP". At least for imagery's sake..

    Really got to psych myself up for those changes that are more calculator than coding. But I am happy with the results.

    So wait, does this mean Archery is viable now? I don’t speak numbers or stats so this is Chinese to me.

    Question on this: Fix It Vendor
    - Players can use the "Shazam" command to switch any Dark Elf Slayer to and Elf Slayer and vice versa.

    How would I be able to tell if the label on an Dark Elf/Elf instrument is accurate?

    I think the label is correct now. So dark elf works on dark elf and elf works on elf. You can use the npc to switch.

    Correct. But if you bought a Dark Elf Slayer before the patch, it would be listed as an Elf Slayer now. Ergo the vendor to allow you to fix the weapon should you so desire.
