WAR Preview – Quest Log Refute

I received a bit of heat over some, to me, very minor things I said about the Warhammer Online Preview Weekend.

One item, in particular, was that I would like to be able to open up the Tome of Knowledge to the quest log section rather than having to leaf through it.

I’ll provide a choice reaction to that:

You honestly expect any of us to believe Mr. 1999 Everquest player couldn’t figure out the shortcut to a quest log? Seriously?

So with WAR back up this morning for Preview Weekend II I logged back in determined to find that so-very-obvious short cut to the quest log over which I was berated.

As far as I can tell, it does not exist.  It isn’t listed in the keymap settings and there is nothing about it on the quest page in the Tome of Knowledge or anyplace else that I can see.

So I’ll just wait for either an apology or somebody to prove that such a shortcut exists.  Either one will do.

Meanwhile, I seem to have caught the “crash to desktop” virus in the game.  They may have fixed a lot of things, but that one still seems to be active.

EVE Answers Another Theoretical

Among the UI enhancements CCP put into the Empyrean Age 1.1 was another couple pieces of data in the sea of data that is EVE Online.

Specifically, they added information on your total buy and sell orders to the bottom of the Orders tab of the Wallet window.

Now, being the unsophisticated EVE player, my buy order total is almost always very close to my escrow total.  I do not do much with contracts and the like, but I could imagine that for some these two numbers should be broke out.

The total of sell orders though, the answer to the magic question “If it all sold today, how much would I get?” is something I ask myself more often than I should like to admit.

So score another one for the data hungry in EVE Online.

Meanwhile, it looks like I had better start training Wholesale III.  I’m running out of order slots.
