Nolly, give an example

I give an example below beware of spoilers. While most of the clues point to elsewhere, the clue definitely names the item and location as a misdirection. One person in our campfire even gave up doing the correct quest when they wouldn't drop to try the false clue.

**Spoilers**
Please don't read the spoilers if you wish to not know the locations of two legendary items

The Mushroom Gloves have an entry that state that
the gloves could have been stolen by the imps in Oaktree forest. Which is clearly naming a location along with a gloves but is 100% false. The correct entry never mentions the gloves nor  an exact location, The information at the top does, which is not a journal entry. It is logical that some would think that since the exact location was given for free it is false and they should be looking in Oaktree Forest, which as I mentioned above has happened in our campfire.

If you need an example where the name was given directly in the entry and was correct, the Chisel entry directly mentions a Traveling Salesmen, which is the name of a quest where you get the key. It also mentions a workshop in a cave, which is also a correct location.

Spoiler end

I stand by my statement that not everyone will come to the correct conclusion due to the purposeful misdirections given in the entries. It also should be pointed out that not everyone can unlock all entries at once nor do they always unlock the entries in the order in which they appear in the journal, so again it is logical to believe that some may see a false clue and feel they know the correct location.

Just a quick message to make everyone aware of a reasonably big accessibility improvement in version 3.2.0 - the specific path to travel to locations can now be described with VoiceOver in the travel popup. This change was suggested by quite a few of you, so thank you for your feedback!

In addition, Gem Reforging in 3.2.0 helps VoiceOver players by giving them an alternative to Gem Cutting for improving their gems.

Full 3.2.0 release notes:

NEW FEATURES
● Inn Quests - are you constantly short on gold and wish there was a more efficient way to obtain it? Various quests can now be undertaken at Inns around the land to earn you significant amounts of gold.
● Gem Reforging - do you struggle with gem cutting or simply want to strive for perfect quality gems? You can now combine a gem of the highest available tier with another in order to reforge it and increase its overall quality.

CHANGES
● Illustrious Gem Cutting now requires a recipe from Chapter 1 - existing players who have already visited Thardric Slums will have the recipe automatically added to their quest items.

ACCESSIBILITY IMPROVEMENTS
● The specific path to travel to locations can now be described with VoiceOver in the travel popup
● Added commas between the runes in the accessibility label for Lore Researching guesses to improve the VoiceOver readability

BUG FIXES
● Fixed another bug with the number of locations being calculated incorrectly

Really nice update. Thanks so much for keep working on the accessibility. Any news regarding to the battery drainage bug some of us are having?

Unfortunately not. The game has been around for several years and I only started to hear about battery issues from players using VoiceOver.

I am not really sure yet how to isolate, verify and fix the issue.

A few questions for anyone who would like to answer:
* I am assuming other VoiceOver games do not have nearly as bad battery issues?
* Are you keeping the app open or just coming back for a couple of mins every time a quest finishes?

1, as far as I know, no.
2, depends on a quest.

I don't know any apps which drains that much power from the battery because Voiceover is running.
I start a quest, lock my phone and opens the app again when a quest has finished. However, if I'm not doing any quests and the app is just running in the background, it still seems to drain a lot of battery. I'm not sure if it drains more battery when doing quests when not doing quests.

Best regards SLJ.

My battery seems to drain faster if I am doing a quest while the app is running in the background. If I completely close it out, the issue seems to go away. I don't often close out the app completely though, so there isn't enough to say if it does really go away. It does seem to go away if I cut the app off from celular or Wi-Fi access though, in fact I don't allow most of my apps to run off of cellular, but until recently forgot to turn off Land of Livia, which was eating up my bandwidth.

I created a spoiler post in the articles room for those having issues locating the legendary items.

I know many of you like to find things on your own, but there are just as many who are having difficulties finding the legendary items.

I also added headings to all the items, so you can skip any items you do not wish to read about.

Hi all,

just a quick mathematical exercise:
There is a perfect way to max out the chances for unlocking clues with lore items. And it may surprise you.
In short: Take the lore excerpts. They have the best cost/success ratio.

You can calculate this by dividing the success chance with the cost of every piece.
The cost is the ammount of fragments you need. An excerpt needs three fragments, a page needs 3 times 3 so nine fragments and a chapter needs a total of 27 fragments.

Fragment: 5 / 1 = 5%
Excerpt: 25 / 3 = 8,333% per fragment
Page: 65 / 9 = 7,222% per fragment
Chapter: 100 / 27 = 3,7% per fragment

So unless I am missing something there is a definitive way to max out your chances in the long run. Correct me if I am wrong with this...
