    The development team is currently finalizing the functionality and performing final checks, so stay tuned!
    Thank goodness! I don't know why they cut out this awesome feature to begin with.

    So glad to get this back! It was a wonderful feature back in beta. I've been missing it ever since.

    Finally!

    After half an year, we finally have solid confirmation.

    I would suggest that devs maintain a list of these "yes we know about it and it will 100% be implemented" features. And sticky it somewhere.

    Oh, neat. Maybe now I can keep the duty list up but have nothing in it - redundant sounding I know, but that means I don't have to screw with the UI settings every time I want to know the background of a FATE I joined or access level sync, without having that irritating little thing clogging my screen elsewise.

    I wish Leves info and FATE info would be separate from the quests infos, so I can use the UI like it was in 1.0

    I beg to differ. I am a software developer so I am very familiar with how source control, and the way that code changes can mess things up. In this instance you have two main sets of functionality. 1 is the quest log we see when we out questing, and the other is the journal where we select quests. In one you simply have a toggle that flips a variable to show or not show the quest. With a small amount of logic limiting the selection to 5 quests. Then on the quest log you simply display only the ones where the "show" variable is set to true. These are two very small pieces of code that interact with almost no other parts of the system. It should have been as easy as going to their source code, selecting the functioning code, and repaste into the new code. Then make any required small changes for anything new that has been added. In this case I am unaware of any functional changes made to either the Journal or the quest list. So I say again. It should have just been as simple as going to their source control and re-implementing the feature. It isn't like we are modifying the graphics engine, or the animation system. It is two simple UI windows that display a list of data. That's it. Very simple.

    I can only imagine the reason they removed it was for the ps3 somehow. That reasoning feels very weak though. I have no idea why this feature was removed at all.

    Hello everyone!

    When Hiroshi Minagawa gave an update yesterday in regards to the Duty List feature, he included a screenshot of the Japanese development client, which included an icon that caught some players' eye.



    Can you spot it? (Hint: it's to the left of the "3.")

    Below is an explanation from him about what this is.
