    Can we get clarification on name reservation? Will it be account based or server based? This is a huge deal for any mmo and many people have purchased packages that have this option. Reservation has been said to occur before live launch. If server based how will people know which servers to reserve on at such an early time? Since there has been commenting on cross server arena play, how will conflicts be handled in same name ranking?

    How will summons/minions work?

    The dead do not squabble as this land’s rulers do. The dead do not fight one another. The dead have no desires, no petty jealousies or ambitions. A world of the dead is a world at peace

    When speaking of the holy trinity, will we see other classes besides the cleric filling the role of healer or tank filling the role of main tank? I understand that clerics and tanks will be able to build in such a way that they are dps and not their primary role, but will we see bards healing and fighters tanking or will 2 of the primary classes be reserved as healer/tank and the other 6 dps (and/or support)?

    How much of an effect will RNG have on PvP? RNG in PvP can be frustrating, especially when you can outplay your opponent but RNG mechanics (e.g. CC resistance chance or hit damage chance) get in the way and you lose because of it. 

    PS. I'm fine with crit chance

    Please stop dodging my question about Caravans.

    Can you please share a little more information about personal caravans.   If you tell us just one thing, can you tell us if they can be spawned anywhere?  Or are there certain spots we have to spawn them at?   (House, Freehold, Node, etc).

    I never thought about the second part but thats a really good question!

    I might take it a step farther and ask will winged mount skins, liked those obtained thru the shop and alpha/beta packages, only work if you have a winged mount in game, thus not allowing you to have a basic horse and just use a cosmetic to give it wings?

    Post updated, it has come to my attention that my followup question has already been answered.

    1.Will it be possible to have npc's to defend your freehold? Can you customize them, like their looks armor weapons skills ect? If you can how many?
    2. Do you plan on having race exclusive weapon types? Like can there be a sword that only a dwarf race crafter can make?
    3. To what extent does the archetype of your class impact your combat? Will it be as minimal as "You will burn your opponents with this skill as well" or "Instead of a brick wall a sphere of stone will appear and will reflect all incoming missiles. 
    4. How are the Summoner archetypes be different from eachother? Will they have bonuses if they summon a companion that favors their archetype (Example: When necros summon a vampire companion it will get extra life leach)

    Will the breeding of mounts be an intensive activity (e.g. you need to be there constantly) or will it be more casual (e.g. ArcheAge, you left your Yatas for several hours after trimming/feeding/breeding to go and do other activities).
