Hardware Failure. July 24 2014

amazing. another dead drive.
So, the web server had a hard drive failure just a couple days after the shard had a hard drive failure. The shard box was much simpler of a fix because we have mirrors on that system for added data security. They replaced the drive this morning, we started setting it up when we noticed it had some errors. Upon checking the disk i put in a new ticket and got it replaced again. We now have another sexy new drive. But being this was a single drive system, we are restoring stuff for the site, store, email, forums, etc. from backups.

After this incident, we have to decided to get mirroring set up on this server as well, or if we cant, get another one somewhere we can.

Sorry, its been a rough week with the hardware stuff, but all should be fine now and hopefully we can get some more important stuff done smile

The main shard server has suffered a hardware failure. There will be some downtime to repair it
One of the hard drives in the shard server has failed and needs to be replaced. This will probably take an hour or so once the process is started. There is no reason to shut down the shard, or worry about data or anything of the sort. We maintain the usual recent backups of the shard data, plus 2 daily complete backups 2 time a day of the entire shard at a remote locations, as well as raid mirroring.

The drive that failed is one of the two mirrors of the same data, meaning: it will not cause any data loss. The raid array has done its job, and we still have all data and a completely functional server despite the failed drive.

But, we need to get this repaired as soon as possible. Once we contact the data center, it could be done at any time.

Network Issues

The shard is experiencing network issues today.
This issue seems to have cleared up some time ago. We apologize for the inconvenience.

UPDATE 11:10am Eastern

The data center engineers have informed us that the problem is isolated to a single router, and they are working on getting it resolved ASAP, but no ETA has been provided yet. We will probably take care of a few minor updates in meantime.


The server we have dedicated to the Wakened Online shard is experiencing networking issues at the data center hosting it, of unknown causes. We have contacted the provider, who are working on the situation. We hope to have things operating normally soon.

If this becomes a prolonged issue, continuing into the afternoon, we will temporarily move the shard to another of our US-based servers.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

2014 Easter Content.

14 Apr : 18:07  |  Events  |   0
  None
We have several things going on for the Easter Holiday, additional content has been added today.
Decorative Easter Eggs

These collectible eggs come in each Easter Basket that gets filled in Trammel facets (as explained below ) between Easter day through the month of May. There are over 1400 hues and 3 different shapes, which comes to roughly 5000 possible unique combinations. These eggs are purely decorative and serve no other purpose.
Easter Baskets During the days from Easter through May, the Easter baskets will fill themselves with goodies when opened. When opened on Trammel maps, they will fill themselves with a mix of the following items:

  • Easter Eggs
  • Chocolate Easter Egg
  • Stuffed Easter Bunny
  • Jelly Beans
  • Candy Coated Chocolate Rabbit
  • Chocolate Llama
  • Easter Carrot
  • Decorative Easter Egg
  • Easter Basket Grass
Opening the basket in Felucca will give a mix of the following items:

  • Spam
  • Skinned Rabbit
  • Rotten Turnips
  • Chocolate Jelly Beans
  • Moon Shine
  • Chocolate Hand
  • Pigs Head
  • Pigs Feet
Addition 4/14/14 Some people have asked for more info about the spawns for these chests, so we decided to make more of it public. First, there are ~200 locations they can spawn. The spawns are in Trammel and Felucca, and pretty much confined to town areas in buildings. The chests will delete themselves 5 minutes after the traps are cleared, and the re-spawn check is in 30 min intervals. We also made an increase to the number of chests spawning to 15 in Trammel and 20 in Felucca. We were going to leave this next part to be a surprise, but, we decided that would be a bad idea, due to the fact that there will be no logon gifts this season and some will miss out for a lack of information. The first time those baskets are opened between Easter day and through all of May, they will be filled with Easter goodies (or baddies). More information about the baskets will be posted later. Original As most of you are aware, we currently have "roaming" holiday spawns which are not bound to a specific location. These areas will be increased in size and relocated to some extent. We are/will be holding in-game events, and a bag art contest which is underway, and a winner will be picked on Easter Day. See the events section of the forums for more information. Additionally, we have added a holiday stealing system, as part 2 of our holiday publishes. On the Trammel and Felucca facets, chests will be spawning throughout the holiday season. These chests will be in town areas, generally inside of shops, castles, and other structures. They are spawning with a wide range of lock picking difficulty and trap power levels, ranging from very easy to difficult. The difficulty of the container influences the chances of special items spawning in the container, but has no influence on what items spawn. Once the trap on the container has been removed or triggered, the container will disappear in 5 minutes. The containers will also search a small area around themselves for other containers. If found, they will assume the appearance of those neighboring containers, including furniture containers. Once in a while this makes it obvious, but often they disguise themselves very well. The spawner engine checks every 30 minutes for deleted containers to replace, and there will be no more than 15 in Trammel and 20 in Felucca, for a total of 35 in the world at the most. So, the contents .. Common Items
  • Cabbage
  • Carrot
  • Cheese Wheel
  • Cheese Wedge
  • Turnip
  • Ear Of Corn
  • Grapes
  • Ham
  • Eggs
  • Bananas
Special Items
  • Easter Basket
  • Stuffed Easter Bunny
  • Decorative Easter Basket
The Easter Basket is the same as the ones dropping on event mobiles. Note, we are trying to get plenty of them out there smile The Stuffed Easter Bunny will appear elsewhere in our events, but the ones stolen from town containers will bear a name which reflects the location they were stolen from. So, if you stole one from the town of Yew, it may have the name "A Stuffed Easter Bunny Stolen from Yew". Of course, some will have much more specific, thus interesting location names than this. These Easter bunnies will give treats when double clicked, once in a 24 hour period. The third special item is simply a decorative Easter basket which will be unique to the steal-able stuff. Check back for more holiday event announcements, and some images to go with this information!
