The Dark Tides Classifieds / Charity Donation House
« on: May 04, 2020, 11:13:59 PM »
I would like to start by saying that all donations to the Charity Donation House are appreciated!!

With that said I feel that I do need to say that some items that are donated are not appropriate for us to put into the donation house.
-Pets: Those need to be donated to the zoo. The more pets we have donated to the zoo the more animals we see in the zoo. (For a full list of what can be donated to the zoo please see the following post: http://www.thedarktides.com/forum/index.php?topic=111.0 ) For a starting player they have no idea what they need for skills for any pet in the Dark Tides World. I wouldn't want a new player taking a pet and it going wild on them, because they do not have the required skill for said pet.
-Minor Artifacts, Stealable Gear, Keys, and Quest Reward Gear: These items are all acquired in game some how and most times these items have a lot more bonuses then an item that would generally drop on a monster. This could be the opposite of helpful to a new player who is trying to work up their skills. This is why these items can be obtained by people in game when they have the skills to be able to acquire them on their own.

Please do keep in mind that all donations are appreciated and needed to help players progress their chars at all different points in game. This depends player to player and when/how they decide to train their char. This is why the donation house is open to everyone and not just new players. Someone who reaches elemental god status may not have taken time to train up crafting skills and may need a little help and that is ok. This is what the donation house is for, to help those who need it.

In addition to the donation chests at each bank, I am sure you have all see the 4 chests set up just outside the doors of the donation house. If you have a larger bag of donation items or items that will not be taken by the donation chests this is where you can place these items for your convenience. An item like a quiver cannot be donated at a donation chest by a bank, because they are considered a container.

If you have questions concerning the donation house and what is appropriate to donate please contact me and we can discuss those questions. I am glad so many have taken the time to donate items everyone who visits the donation house for help Thanks you!!

The Dark Tides Classifieds / Stealable Suggestions
« on: December 09, 2019, 02:11:46 PM »
Please use this post to talk about and suggest things you would like to see as a stealable in game!
If you feel it is a suggestion for a town or a dungeon or hidden or what not, please let us know that also!

PLEASE NOTE: That all suggestions will be considered. There is no guarantee that any or all suggestions will for sure be an idea that we use or when the idea will be implemented into the game.

Thank you for all suggestions!

All Other Dark Tides Stuff / Player Involvement
« on: December 09, 2019, 12:36:11 PM »
Bane and I had a long discussion this morning about many things, including the things discussed in discord over night last night. Some of what came of that conversation we feel needs to be shared with all of the players and the other staff.

The Broken Things section of the forum is also to post suggestions, ideas, concerns for us staff to look at and give everyone a chance to chime in on what they thing and how they feel. This also gives us as staff the opportunity to put things on our to do lists as we see where it sits priority wise. Just like players we do have lives outside of the game and families we need to spend time with. Family is number one over The Dark Tides, for all.

We also see the Dark Tides as not just a game but also a community of people. We have a wonderful group of players and we would like to see that continue. Player input is extremely important to us and we do rely on it. This is part of why the forum is so important, it give everyone ample opportunity to give and reply to input/suggestions/concerns.

Please see this recent post also: http://www.thedarktides.com/forum/index.php?topic=158.0

This post is a prime example of the things we rely on players to tell us and the importance of the forum. These issues can now be discussed as a community to be able to implement improvements.

Please also note that the rules do state that we do reserve the right to implement changes without notice, which leads me to another recent and very important post.
See that post here: http://www.thedarktides.com/forum/index.php?topic=158.0

The Dark Tides Classifieds / Crafting Donations/House
« on: November 04, 2019, 12:19:24 PM »
Hello all! I am sure most if not all of you know that Emmalyn (who is YPS) has a public crafting house, for anyone to use. She sells runes to her crafting house on her vendor in the museum.

I also know most of the players we have currently are mages/warriors. For the crafters out there it can be hard to start, especially if they do not like to fight. I would ask if any of you who will not be using crafting resources, that if you run into any while fighting you please collect them and donate them in the mailbox of Emmalyn's crafting house. This will be able to help the crafters out there and help boost the economy of the server! So a win, win!

If your character is a straight up crafter please contact Emmalyn via a private message in the game, so she can help you get to and be able to utilize the crafting house!

Tutorials / PVP or PVM
« on: October 29, 2019, 05:14:42 PM »
All players start out as PVP.

However here you do have a choice. There are 2 quest givers in each starting town. To become PVM only take and complete the quest from the quest giver called the monster hunter. If you would like to switch back to PVP take and complete the quest from the murderer.

These quests will flag your character as either PVP or PVM respectively for completing the quests.

The Dark Tides Classifieds / Looking for YPS and Donation House
« on: October 27, 2019, 03:47:08 PM »

As our server grows we will need more people helping with new players and helping guide them. This is an important position on the server as it can affect someone's whole experience in the Dark Tides World. Being YPS is 100% volentary.

YPS are responsible for the obvious, helping guide new players and fielding in game and discord questions when you are able to. An additional responsibility of YPS is to help take care of the donation house. Helping sort and organize items that are donated and putting them away nicely in the donation house, to make it a helpful experience to new players. The donation house is many a new player's first stops or one of them and we want to put our best foot forward here.

Keeping an eye on items that are getting low and helping to replenish such items when you are able is a bonus to the world.

If you are interested in being YPS or have a question about becoming YPS please email me at LittleTree@thedarktides.com
We can discuss things further through email.


Also with the influx of players the donation house will be in need of replenishment. As you hunt if you have time keep an eye out for regular gear that would be good to help build a new character with, you can grab it and simply donate it (how to donate is explained below).

I often take my higher level character to higher level dungeons, just to hunt out new gear for the donation house. There are others who also regularly donate and some who donate something here and there. All donations are appreciated! It helps newer players and helps pay forward someone else's good acts in donating when you also do the same. Keep in mind also if there is an item you took from the donation house you can re-donate that item when you are no longer in need of it.

Donating is quick and easy. Most, if not all, banks have a donation chest, just drag drop the items you wish to donate onto the chest. There is also a 2nd option for those who gather many items. There are donation chests outside the donation house in the yard for you to drag drop bags full of items to donate into. As I regularly hunt for gear on one of my characters it is easy to put all of the items into an empty bag, then take the bag to the donation house and drop it into one of these chests.

If you have any questions please post them below. :)
Thank you for taking the time to read this post!

The Dark Tides News / Crash 6/24/19
« on: June 24, 2019, 01:34:55 PM »
We have deleted all of the trash piles on the server until we are able to find out what item caused the crash today.

Historically speaking we only have one crash per year. :) So hopefully going forward we will be good!
Thank you,
