Nice to see new questline added and new timed bosses! I sadly still haven't finished the last part of line 21, but hopefully I can start on 22 sometime unless it's changed to allow it without finishing 21.

However, I'm a bit worried about the new Yata Decor box. I know I was the person to request this be added, so I hate to complain about how it gets implemented when I am grateful it's getting added at all. The box contains all the items separately, in a box with a high volume of "junk" drops that won't amount to much gold. Historically, furniture/cosmetic based boxes that don't have a desirable pet/glider/vehicle/mount in them do not get whaled as much as. I'm concerned amount being able to 'reasonably' collect all the yata pieces me and Keatra want to deck out our houses if nobody is willing to open the boxes, and the yata pieces are so far and few between the ones being opened. To compare, on live, the Yata Decor came in a Wrapped Box with 1 of each item, creating a nice 'waste' and 'duplicates' when somebody bought multiple to get what they multiples wanted and sold off the rest. This box (item code 8002078 or 44449) sold for a flat rate 2000 credits (roughly $15). I'm wondering if maybe the wrapped yata box itself can be the RNG box reward instead of the individual pieces themselves? This would make it worth being in a low grade box, and also help whales make better money being able to sell a wrapped package instead of random pieces of decor that someone may not need.

Thanks :)

It explicitly states:


  • New custom questline Chapter 22 "Secrets, spirited away" is added.
    - Start NPC - Temple Priestess.
    - To start it you need to have level 52 and complete previous custom questline Chapter 21 “The Order of Nui”.

So I'm kinda sad cuz I'm stuck on last quest of chapter 21 as EU player. No one does the custom boss at 2pm server time, and it's not doable for me to stay up for Abyssal :c

As with any questline, you need to finish a previous chapter to start a new one. Same is here: finish custom Chapter 20 to start Ch 21. When Ch 21 is completed (last quest - The battle of the fearless!), you can start Ch 22 added today.
I'm sure there are still many payers who forgot to finish Ch 21 or didn't have a chance to, so now is a good time to group to finish some of the quests together.

As for the new Yata decor, it include many various items with the good drop chances. Items can be sold at the AH, so if you go the one you don't like, don't want or already have, you can sell it to other players who miss this piece. And having all pieces dropped separately give other players a chance to get a few pieces of the same item if they want it (for example, player wants 2 same Chairs), so player would be able to buy an extra chair from other players instead of buying the complete set of decor for that 2nd chair only.

I actually did read that when I made the post but I had just woken up and didn't form my complete thought of 'hopefully I can finish or it gets changed without finishing 21'. But okay dude.:rolleyes:
dw I was sort of lamenting as well that it's not possible, 2nd part of my post :x

Hiya, not sure what you guys did but I can not change my UCC image as of today's update, it is stuck on the last one I made. I used to be able to change to a new UCC image while in game and that wasn't working so I logged out and back in and it is still stuck on the same image I made last...please fix :)

No changes were made by us in game that would affect it. Does anyone else have the same issue?

I just checked mine, I don't have the same issue.

@Trixiy double check you copy pasted the ucc in the right documents folder, cuz my crest stuff needs to be in AR specific folder, idk if you still got a folder from retail or something

Thanks for checking Aviendha :) The only way I could fix it was to delete the UCC folder, make a new one and put an image in it. I dont know what was wrong with the folder ??
