Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When I opened CaVES or performed an action that caused a stat change, I noticed the stats took a second to change or display.
A: CaVES has all the limitations of the game UI. If something is causing a slow down in the UI or game, then CaVES will also be affected.
Q: I had the CaVES window open and suddenly a stat change occurred and I had not taken any action such as removing or adding equipment.
A: This is not uncommon and is not a bug. This is usually the result of a spell or buff/debuff being applied to or wearing off for the player character. Remember, anything that affects a stat is reflected in the Character View stats window as well as the CaVES Reference stat values and Recent stat values.
Q: I had the CaVES window open and was adding and removing pieces of equipment and the stats and/or stat differences changed automatically several moments after I had stopped.
A: This typically occurs when adding or removing pieces of gear that are parts of sets. The game sometimes takes a moment to apply the set piece bonuses, resulting in the stats and differences displaying one set of values and then a moment later the values adjust after the set pieces bonuses have finally been applied. If you are swapping pieces of equipment that are parts of a set and are not seeing the correct values being applied, give the game the chance to catch up. Realize that CaVES only displays the information it has available to it at the time, but that the stat values will correct themselves since CaVES takes into account and has safeguards for such situations.
Q: I upgraded CaVES to 1.2 or later from a previous version and I lost my persistent stats for my current character.
A: Unfortunately, versions of CaVES prior to version 1.2 had incompatible saved data for persistent stats with the latest versions that support multiple character persistent reference stat values saving across multiple servers. There was no character name or server name associated with the data. The safest way to handle this was the wipe out the previously saved stats. Measures have been taken that if changes need to occur in the future, stat value resets should not be necessary. Apologies for any inconvenience.
As an added note, as of 1.3 and WAR patch 1.2.1, CaVES continues to store its character stat values per character name per server, but stores them globally under \Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning\user\settings\GLOBAL\CaVES.
Q: CaVES does not work or causes issues with another mod I have installed, or my other installed mod or addon causes issues with CaVES.
A: Every effort has been made to ensure that CaVES is setup such that it does not conflict with other installed mods or addons, and vice-versa. Specific support has been included for mods such as AnywhereTrainer, RvRStatsTab, and RvRStatsUpdated. However, due to the extent of mods and the radical changes some mods make to the UI, there is bound to be some cases where mods cause issues with each other.
