[Author’s Note: This post is meant to be tongue-in-cheek, fun, and for enjoyment.]
Many times I have indicated how much I love Dungeons and Dragons Online: Here, in chat, and in real. I do this because simple words would never do justice to my obsession.
Never-the-less, every once in a while something rears its head, and drives me absolutely bonkers. Typically, that “something” is lag. However, sometimes that “something” is so minuscule that it is almost not worth mentioning. Today’s post is about the latter.
I have a new alt that I created specifically for running Against the Slave Lords at level with my Cannith guild. I’m going to focus on her specifically because she possesses the main issue I have with the latest update and patch.
This is Aurrorah, she is a level 8 Paladin, and older sister of Aariah gin Citi (found on Thelanis). Aurrorah is a comely, cool, and capable, but leads a life most troubled. She has lost much of what she loves, and struggles every day with depression.
Her depression is not what I am here to discuss, however. Aurrorah has depression because that’s exactly how I created her and want her to be. What I am here to discuss is something very trivial, and you are all quite likely to laugh at me for even caring about this, but here it is:
As you can see from the picture above, Aurrorah has a lovely long braid of straw-colored hair that tumbles down her back. This is also by design. Both Aariah and Aurrorah have been modeled after characters in a book I once tried to write.
This piece of online art demonstrates the design concept, and illustrates it to perfection.
Now to get to the matters heart.
The latest update seems to have caused a glitch with certain hairstyles. In this case, I refer those hairstyles that deal with ponytails and pigtails.
This picture should give some kind of indication of which I refer. Though not moving, her hair sticks straight out behind her, without the addition of any product whatsoever!
The poor dear suffers through her life enough, and adding repeated bad hair days might just be the icing on the cake, or straw that broke the camel’s back, if you will. I plead with the devs and Turbine to please fix this issue so that Aurrorah may have one less issue!
After all, as consistently repeated in many avenues: If it lasts more than 4 hours, please contact your physician.
