With a lot of immortals retiring or semi-retired (dunno the exact details just guessing so please don't think of this as some attack on immortals) it probably won’t happen for a long time. I heard it was 96% done or something like that but real life has taken a hold on a few of the immortals and we haven't seen the main people who deal with area making. Anyway that’s the reason why I started to post on the board to see if anyone was interested in trading these items because it looks like it will be a long time before we get a chance to attempt the zone. Hopefully it will be put back in again and then I am sure there will be more complaints heh.

Well, I could say something about when she'll be back in, but its kinda like everyone is under an NDA or something and I'd be disemboweled, flayed alive, and prolly many other horrible things. So, I'll do the norm and say: "Soon, barring any RL issues the people working on her have."

Do people (and that includes both players and staff) consider Tia to be the ultimate magical solution that will fix all the problems the mud has when she comes back in?

I've not been around that long on S3 and Toril, and I never even got to level 50 on Sojourn, so I might not be the most qualified to ask. However...it seems to me that all this would do would bring back a certain number of old players (most of whom will be demanding their EQ back from those they've lent it to!) for a certain period of time, who are interested only in specifically doing Tia. It will be attempted, over and over, until done, then again and again until perhaps "beaten" (or if genuinely impossible to beat then denounced on the BBS over and over). And then all those people will slowly trickle back to World of Warcraft IV, Everquest VII, and so on.

How will that help the real issues on the mud at the moment?

Putting Tia back in isn't going to fix anything other then fixing the problem of a zone that has been out of the game for far too long.
Course, that is my personal opinion and doesn't reflect that of the other staff members.

The fact that tia has been out so long has not really effected the game as much as it has been a symbol of the fact that things just don't get done very quick here.

Ooooorrrrr...

It's a sign that the Imms have been busy trying to fix the real "problems" that Shalath complained about earlier.

Give the Imms a break.

When i posted this i wasnt thinking about fixing any kinda problem. only thing i was thinking about was fixing tia being out. Its been out along time, so obviously more time isnt goin to matter to me personaly. If it brings back those couple people that only want to do tia more power to them if they wanna come do it beat her win the eq and quit. IMO thats dumb but who's to say they cant? ok but ya was just wondering how far along that is comeing and such.

Just to be clear, the code that I'm writing is not something solely for Tia, though she does require it. There will be more details "soon".
