Sadly.

Once I heard the word HOUSING I started typing along a bit. I didnt catch everything and I am not going back to catch everything, but a few of the major points are somewhere inbetween the walls:

House interiors!! Entering, customizing, whole new villager aspect of the game. Foundation is there, but still a lot of work to go. Gridplans, which might also make it possible later on to decorate your villagers or other parts of the world / instanced gardens/plots/yards you can make your own décor. You get a say who enters your house (friends, guildies, no-one, everybody).
Not just tables and chairs but more than that. Let them know your favourite things for in the game! Fav games, statues, etc. These things can be crafted. Probably by complicated craft recipes. Also quest rewards and an npc you can buy items.



Other stuff down the line:
Village can have a park. You click on an archway and are teleported into a park. Group guild gets to decide what goes in the park.

Somethingsomething about instance dungeons. WAAAAAYYYYYY down the line.

Know we need lvl cap raise, new zones etc, but will be focusing on this for the next 2-ish years.
Simultaneous work on some other stuff too, cause Sean is amazing.

Currently working on Christmas and more raids.

Working on new Item shop. Looks fancy, and automated random daily sales.

Local artist interns from local community college will be helping out with the game.

Christmassy snowy ardent is coming!

New quests and bosses for grinchies lair

Cant do dates on level cap raise

Mobile needs attention and they have a list they want to get in
Point: knows that mobile needs more stuff badly.

All toys and pets will be converted for the bag when the grinchta build comes

They know we are bored

Druda leaving tomorrow (no, joke). It will be here for almost all of November, in fact right up until after tanksgiving nov 29th. Raid season ends the next day. So when raid leaves, Grinch will be up.

We might get an underwear wardrobe pack and/or ugly Christmas sweaters

No promises on date yet but: they know its frustrating, the downtime of plentifull nodes after reboot, so its in the plans to try and solve that.

Lvl cap is being worked on now or won’t be worked on for the next couple years?

as I understood it it will come, but they cant give a date, and it is more of an inbetween-piece-of-work than a main focus.

So I know this probably isn't the best place to put this but I'll put it here for an easy quote (which thanks ekimie for writing up a wonderful summary of the livestream!! 👏👏).
Also my post is kinda blunt so I apologize, just take it as straight to the point, no rudeness or disrespect intended.

TLDR: Please don't raise the level cap unless the content will be AMAZING 🥺😘

Grind in this game is quite intense. This statement isn't even that specific it moreso applies to all aspects of the whole entire game. Now, the game does do an incredible job of easing players into it, but nonetheless, this game's version of the typical MMORPG grind is unavoidable.

I remember after maxing my first character, a hybrid wizard using a very beautiful yet specialized build that's 100% underrated, after getting the season 1 raid mount in my 60s, season 2 raid nameplate in my 80s, after getting through event zones and grind zones, medallion stretches and level locks, I finally did it. And after that first elder run I just felt relieved I didn't have to grind that toon every single day again.

From people who have done this 1-95 stretch multiple times, it becomes very much a grind and a stretch, less and less fun each time, especially the 90-95 blight which is exciting at first as you are just so so close to your first max character, but becomes increasingly not-great each round through. And it's not because the game is bad, no not at all. It's just there's a big grind at the higher levels. A really big one. And adding in the rebirths makes it even more crazy.

Adding 10 more levels and another rebirth would be the end of the road for a lot of people with currently max toons (at least from what I've heard from ppl I have talked to and heard talking about it, and these are ppl who are super dang strong and generous and nice, those ppl).

Of course adding more content for 95s is great and more levels and story sounds super exciting! I just hope that, if this ever does happen, it isn't another grind for the sake of being a high level and slow exp and adding more to do. Also the 105 rebirth please please please make it have the option of skipping blight again, redoing it on every character would be really not too fun. Another quick comment is that if the cap is raised the upper level ppl won't be doing the 95 elders anymore to help the 'lower levels' (aka the 95s in this 105 max world), so I'm not sure how those people would get the 95s done ever.

But yeah. If this is ever added, if the cap is ever raised, if the 6th rebirth is added, please do it carefully and for the best of reasons... I really don't want another grind just for the sake of hitting the new max level, as i'm sure many players would agree. Adding more levels could be a beneficial addition, if it's done well.

Love y'all!
