Hey folks,

There are 3 specific new pieces of functionality we would like to ensure that you test and provide feedback on:
  • Decorations blocking line of sight.
  • Terminal usage being dictated by keys.
  • The ability to toggle PvP off in the Stronghold.
    • Note: The intended functionality here is that you toggle PvP on/off either while you are outside the Stronghold completely or at least outside of the PvP area.
Let us know your thoughts!

What should happen if we toggle PvP while people are in the stronghold, perhaps even fighting?

It takes effect immediately. Nobody needs to leave the Stronghold for it to be enabled.

The PvP toggle doesn't seem to be working properly.

Even though it is unchecked by default, your stronghold is still set to PvP. You have to click it on and then off again for PvP to be disabled.

Also, it is not remembering your setting when you log off. Every time you log in, you have to check PvP on and then off again for your stronghold to not allow PvP.

I am experiencing the same issue. Once you click the box to enable it and then disable it again, it does seem to work properly though; I no longer get the red text on my screen or get dismounted when I run through the PvP area at the front of the stronghold, which is as far as I've gone in testing so far.

This is an issue that will appear only on PTS for anyone who owned the Rishi Stronghold prior to today's PTS patch. This won't happen on live. You simply have to toggle it on and off a couple of times and it will function properly.

Changes (?): Nice hooks added to the water and the other island but we still can't get there for the exhaustion zone. Can that be changed?

Suggestion: Add small hooks on top of the centerpieces and when you break them down to large add the small hooks like the normal large hooks have, pretty please?


Positive: Thank you for fixing the wall hook in the sun room. I can now hang my plants without them touching the floor.


Bug: On the platform across from the hillside room, (large area) I have made a cantina and put a juke box but I keep getting can't see target.

Wow! I love the changes! The overlook is fantastic. I would only suggest adding doors to the rooms, and changing the cmall hooks along the walls into medium narrows wherever possible. It's not exactly what I'd hoped for, but I love it!

I also love that you increased the hook sizes for the wall decorations. This change really opens up what a decorator can do with this, or any other stronghold. I plan on cleaning Rishi up by using the walls to hide some of the rusted out areas. This is also going to make it so easy for me to give the SH a Copero feel, which was my plan all along!

I had to toggle the PvP option on and off, as others have stated, but after that it worked like a charm! This stronghold hold is seriously awesome now! Thank you so so much! I'd bake the team cookies if it weren't creepy to get cookies from a complete stranger, lol!

There's an invisible wall in the exhaustion zone so you can't even get there with all the healing in the world.

Lol, true. I made 2 outside showers on the balcony. I had some dividers that work perfectly.
