Update-

I'm doing the actual move Saturday, so I should be available this coming Friday. The following weeks will depend on how long it takes to get internet selected and installed. I will be VAFK (very…) at least until Wednesday night.

I'll be there next Friday, but there is a chance that I'll leave earlier than usual (planned museum visit).

Should be fine to play this Friday and I've got the internet installation at the new place scheduled for Monday, meaning I should be in good shape for the following week as well. The long, dark winter has come to an end.

Black Friday sale includes double points, and Otto's Boxes, among other stuff. Might be a good idea for the non-VIPs to pick some points up if they can.

My headset is completely dead, of unknown causes. Has power, but it's not getting sound or picking up the mic, in Windows, Linux, or Teamspeak. Unfortunately, I don't have a backup.

Since I'm working for tomorrow anyway and have to drop out early, I'm going to bow out for the night and try to catch up on some sleep.

Cable could be broken. I have this with an headphone adaptor/adapter since I once rolled over the cable with my chair … ouch.

On a more serious issue : DDO claims to be updating their "help UI" : https://www.ddo.com/en/news/guide-ge…dragons-online

With multiple cats in Azraelck's house it's not unlikely one of them chewed on the headset cable.

Unfortunately for that theory, it was a wireless headset. Cable was only used to charge it, and it was a generic USB cable.

Wireless … ? Could there be other senders distorting the signal ?

I doubt it, since my setup hasn't changed in months.

It was a janky headset to begin with, so I'm just going to replace it.

    You can now swap a Minor Artifact with another Minor Artifact in the same item slot without needing to unequip one item then equip the other separately.
    Augments can now be slotted while inside dungeons.

I did the new quest quickly yesterday. It's imho a short and fun quest, can be run fast in the second part, but very slowly in the first part.
A water breathing item is a "nice-to-have" thing, as it will give you more breath - and thus a far more relaxed time - for swimming through a horde of spikes. That is the only thing I think must be said about it. Oh, and take all 4 crests !

Storms are moving in tonight, so if I'm absent/drop out unexpectedly, run without me.

There is a small chance that I might be too exhausted for the Friday session : My sister has asked me to … what's the word again ? … disconstruct ? … some of her furniture , in preparation to her move to a new flat later this month.
She wants me to meet her for that at around 18o local time, and I have no idea how long this will take (with a little bit of luck no longer than 2 hours, though).
