To clarify, if I no longer want to play hard mode on a character that I had enabled hardmode on before the changes, can I delete the glyph? Or am I stuck forever?
You can delete the glyph at any time.

And that stops the hardmode from being enabled? Awesome. Thanks!

Just about all of you are totally missing the point of having a hc mode.

I can't imagine those who that think it is such a horrible thing playing most any game that I grew up on in the late 70's to early 90's(stfu so what I am old lol).
You would play for 5 minutes and never game again.


Anyway just my 2 cents not trying to attack anyone or start stuff just commenting.

There is no HC without an exp loss penalty for dying in an rpg.

Are you saying that in your opinion TWoW's HC mode should have an exp loss? It does. It's 5% of a total level, roughly half of what you'd lose in a normal level in vanilla EverQuest (or about equal to what you'd lose in a Hell Level), to put it in early 90's gaming terms.
Unlike EQ though, you can't delevel in TWoW from xp loss due to death.

Hi. Began playing here a bit ago, but I think this should be on front page. This gives an edge of gameplay for most of the players who've been playing the game for some time, or returning. I don't think many go in the forums before advancing multiple levels into the game.

Hi, I am super new to the server and want to give some feedback from my perspective.

My druid, in hardcore mode, is level 20 now and I am really enjoying the leveling experience so far.
One thing I would like to see changed is the xp loss in a dungeon wipe. At least I was told you loose xp in a dungeon as well which makes me avoid dungeon all together. I have no problem at all getting a penalty when I do a mistake or take on too many mobs myself but getting punished, in a dungeon, when other people fuck up is not my idea of a hardcore mode.
Anyways, I am not sure how I deal with this but hardcore mode is an important reason for me playing on this server. Not being able to play dungeons might make me stop playing entirely.

Maybe introducing an item you can use once or twice a day, which would make you not loose xp on death for the next 60 minutes or so would be a good compromise? Just an idea.

Cheers and thx for the great server!

I made similar point on that already. XP penalty in dungeons works against population available for that purpose.
However there is slight counter to that when playing hardcore, you get full xp from kills inside dungeons. So while it's better not to die, when it happens it's not that difficult to offset the loss, as long as you don't die too many times.

I see two options to solve your issue; 1) you bail out of hardcore to keep playing normally and 2) you become a bit picky on who you party with. Inspect people's gear and ask questions if they know what to do here and there.

We are going to rename this mode to the Turtle Mode in order to minimize the confusion between upcoming Mortal/Hardcore Mode and our present Hardcore Mode.

Go Turtles!

Nice change, it’s easy to tell it from the coming one life/ hardcore mode.

The name fits so well I’m surprised we didn’t use it earlier.

Can Turtle Mode be used on top of the new Hardcore Mode?

My first MMO was Final Fantasy XI, the death penalty was 10% of the experience needed to gain the next level, and you could de-level from it. It was absolutely devastating. But it also weeded out people who weren’t taking it seriously. I had a lot of great memories playing it.

So... this Hardcore Master's Tabard. Sounds like something that should be associated with the new HC mode, and not so much Turtle mode?

Maybe a Turtle Tabard instead?

As being a newcomer into the server, Id think it would be wise to explain how to do it, because it has not apparantly;

Steedy is a summonable pet in your skillbook, you gotta summon him and choose glyph, glyph of the turtle. An item will be added in your keyring which will activate the "mode". If you feel bad about it you can pretty much delete and you'll be "normal" again.

I guess rewards come at lvl 10, I have yet to see how(mail or talk to speedy again I guess)
