    Are there actually arms getting approved lately? And lately i mean in the last 6 months because I know a guy who has been waiting and chasing and waiting and chasing. For maybe 6-9 months. Its kinda ridiculous.

    I'm confused by this question. It's not like the crafting approval process - there is no Divine that goes through each submission and accepts or rejects them.

    Every Herald can produce the design for a customer at any time, and BAM! it exists instantaneously, for better or for worse.

    There've been 8 new arms created in the last 30 days.

    EDIT: Unless the guy you know is waiting for his request for a brand new charge (i.e., the object or animal that appears on the arms) to be approved? Is that the issue?

    Three new charges were approved around December.

    @Tahquil - Like @Krypton said, arms creation is instantaneous, as long as the system considers them to be logical. It's actually a codeline we send that programs them into the game, for a big fee.

    However, new original charges need to be reviewed, and they're actually pretty costly. I think it's 1-2 millions or something. Not only that, but they're actually put on a waiting list, and will not be reviewed unless that list reaches about 10 charges, as a way to cut down the admin work for heraldry stuff. So it's quite possible that guy you speak of has requested a new charge, but people being fine with the current ones, have not built a sufficiently big batch to warrant admin attention. Maybe?

    Getting a new charge approved through an Herald is free. But you gotta wait for there to be enough new requests for the aforementioned batch review to happen.

    There is a "fast-track" method if you want your new charge—and you want it now..(ish)—and that costs 750,000gp.

    As far as I'm aware, there are no outstanding heraldry charge requests at this time. They were last updated just prior to Christmas.
