Well, after loads of retrying the download/update/patch my client was finally updated and I could log in. Mind you, it too me all afternoon!
The way to get updated
Are you having troubles updating? Does the system “hang” while downloading the file? Go to the settings of your launcher. Check the tab Proxy settings and set it to the top setting (none). Close your launcher and restart it. If you happen to be on Windows 8, you might want to run it as an admin instead of a normal run.Now continue the download. Is it hanging again, close the launcher and reopen it. You might want to restart your computer before reopening the launcher again. Keep doing this until the download is complete and the patch begins. It may take a while, but the client will be updated in the end.
Logging might take a while too. When it says failed and retry, just wait until the counter hits zero. It will retry. Up until I could always log in after retry.
One important note about the worlds: DO NOT TICK THE BOX PREVIOUSLY PLAYED! It will lead you to the first server instead of the server you previously played on. Somehow they didn’t fix that. Just wait until you’ve got the server list and choose the server of your choice.
Now, onto a more pleasant subject. Update 11 comes with a nice present for everyone who logs in every day: Hobbit Presents. If you have a Free to Play (F2P) or Premium account you will receive 1 silver present each day. This is a present PER ACCOUNT and it’s related to the LEVEL OF YOUR CHARACTER. It’s also Account bound on acquire. So make sure you think about which character you login with that day.
Let’s see what I’ve received so far. Yes, I’ve got six accounts, how else am I going to cover all my crafting needs and have fun in the game? 😀
|Shriya||21 – Hunter|
|Saeliyagil||20 – Loremaster|
|Etheliyabur||15 – Burglar||Same as Saeliyagil|
|Arwiyaeth||15 – Minstrel|
|Rosiya||13 – Hunter|
|Rosangiya||10 – Minstrel|
So, how have you been doing? Did your update go smoothly? And how’s the logging going? And once you’re logged in, does everything run smoothly? What do you think about the Hobbit Presents? Any gifts worth noting?
