Interesting 
Not quite sure why but it seems the dev updates to objectguids (Player/Unit/etc) caused charcustomize and charrename to cease to function. I reverted the changes to the file that holds those functions and it seems to have fixed it. Wasn't a major change anyway shrug. I'm just not sure why it doesn't work...

Oh well, it's been recompiled and reloaded on all realms. I ran a customization on Idiotdk (my DA admin character) and it worked fine.

Note: I goofed up the Revision names so now all servers are "Dark Ash 3.3.5a" (Dark Ash is where the core is revisioned and updated before moving to the linux box). Not a big deal, it will be fixed on next restart.

Sucktastic 
Well, chest loot system was a bust...it's just too old to get working on the new core and too badly written. It would take more than it's worth to fix considering we only have 1 raid chest from end-game dungeons that it would be used for.

Replacing the chest with an npc that will spawn and die at the end of Valithria's event.

Valithria Loot Holder
<Loot Me>

Cores are currently rebuilding with reverting chest loot patch. Currently testing the place holder chest replacement on Test.

It includes:

* Ulduar scripts 90% completed (with portals to most areas) - Many many updates.
* DK Temp ghoul summons and other various summon fixes
* DK Ghoul spell cooldowns fixed

* Hallow's End Candy Buckets will now actually have Candy in them.
* Friendly Citizens will be back to cause some Trickery soon.
* Freezing Arrow fixed
* Glyph of Howling Blast fixed
* Fixed a small bug in the damagetaken portion of the Armory character feed.

Update - Outdoor PvP and Raid No-Locks 
Added Outdoor PvP system to the test realm for all Outdoor PvP areas. Going to leave this run for a bit before moving it to the live realms. Please be sure to send me a PM on the forums with any missing data (be specific).


Also restarted All realms to fix bug with Raid/Player No-Locks. They will now function as they should.

Next Update 
Build is out on all realms

Included:

* Flight paths are now instant teleports to destination. This is to combat an error in the flightpathing code from core devs and may change back later.
* ICC, Ruby Sanctum, and Ulduar are now all fully scripted.
* Hit/Miss ratings are now to 3.3.5a retail specs. Be aware 4.0.1 changes this so data you find online may be inaccurate for our version.
* Anti-cheat will no longer autoban. It will kick and report to our custom database which we will review periodically.
* Added many more Relic procs.
* Fixed the remaining core crashes.
* XP Eliminator NPC now working as it should.

Outdoor PvP will be released in the coming week barring any unforeseen issues.

On a side note: My wife wore two different shoes to work today and texted me a photo of it. It was pretty f-ing hilarious. I don't think I've laughed that hard in a long time. The issue is compounded by the fact she works with mentally unstable clients.
