March and Updates!

01 Mar 2011

As usual here is a list of updates we had the previous month. I would also like to note that the website and forums got some nice updates. We now host our website and forums and they now support PHP so account services are now available online along with other features like server online status, online player count, top pvp/pk and there is more to come!  

 

 
HIGHLIGHTS: TOP S84 WEAPONS/ARMOR AVAIALABLE THROUGH INSTANCES ,MORE FARMZONE UPDATES  


- It has been changed so that Raids drop more clan skill items (i.e earth eggs), VoL mobs now drop them a lot less often.
- The mobs in VoL/Frozen that dropped Blood Oaths now drop them at much lower rates, and the retail like way (by owning a fort for a certain amount of time) of getting them has been increased.
- Cursed Weapon owners will now be treated as a red player when talking to the global GK, which is they only have one port option.
- Fixed the port to Schuttgart so you wont stuck near walls/npcs.
- There was a problem with pvp weapons, this has now been fixed.
- Fixed a problem with Gyarkle & its summon's drops, thx Gothic for reporting.
- The Item section from .info has been updated to include information on coins like blood werewolf and silver fairy.
- The FAQ has been updated to include information how to obtain top S84 PvP items.
- For those of you have not read the server rules, read them! Players cought botting will have all accounts banned that have the same IP as the character cought, so even if it was not you personally and it was a friend from your house, you will still get banned.
- Songs/Dances that previously only lasted only 2 minutes now last 10 minutes.
- Improved the name blacklist (this is just a list words that it wont let you have in your characters name when you attempt to create one).
- Fixed a problem with top PvP weapons not being tradeable, thx for reporting.
- Fixed a problem with Ice Skanks Sirras minion's debuff lasting wayyyy to long, thx for reporting.
- Ice Skank Sirra Raid has been converted to a high level raid, She is now level 84, and has drops simular to other high level custom raids, come check her out, shes located in CoT.
- As some of you may know the auto events that happen through out the day and the event that is chosen at the event times are random between CTF/TvT/DM, it has been modified so that DM happens a little less often then TvT/CTF.
- Arbalesters lost their extra p atk boost that they arent supposed to have in the first place.(the one that was added to them a long time ago when they sucked, but this class is not supposed to have it anyway).
- Another new Mob was added to Frozen Waterfalls, go check it out!
- TvT, CTF, DM Improvements, now when your forced out of your spawn room (when you dont use the GK) your spawn position will be completely random and not a specific spot also now when your in the spawn room for these events, each player has an individual preparation time of 45 seconds and is no longer dependent on other people in the area.
- some additional small boosts were added to summons.
- Archers will passive skill now triggers the correct trigger skill, physical pose (which is retial like, they changed this a while back) Thx Lihyenn for bringing it to my attention.
- Had a problem with some people trying to sell flying transformations for super higher prices when you can buy them from a NPC in gracia for dirt cheap, this kind of thing is considered a scam and you will have consequences for doing this, please read and respect the server rules.
- Just a heads up, ive said it before and ill say it again, if you want your clan name changed i can do it , but once and only once, once a clan has been renamed, i will never rename it again even if you start a new one you will not qualify for this one time service, so if you want your clan name changed, let us know.(puppetpals has been renamed Tempest).
- The passive orc mage retail ability to vr mp has been increased.(as stated before, this is subject to change)
- Fixed a problem while browsing clans in the community board, it wouldnt let you change to certain pages.(through various DB maintences some clan leaders no longer exist, so some clans existed w/o leaders and this what was causing the problem).
- Updated some Donation info.
- To help promote more balanced gameplay, olympiad max enchant is now 10 instead of 15, this means if your weapon is +20, while in olympiad its stats are equal to a +10 weapon instead.
- Elegia PvP Armors and Top S84 PvP Weapons are now avaialable through the group instance event. enjoy.
- New player bonuses now give the Noblesse Buff and Blessing of Protection Buff to protect from Pkers at normal bonus interavals.
- Orc mage classes now have a passive mp vr effect which is retail like, thx sawyer for reporting. (WARNING: the effect isnt as good as retail here, and the amount it gives back is subject to change)
- Skill enchanting now costs more adena.
- Fixed a problem with the mob Congelation, he wasnt dropping adena or herbs, thx hobiT for reporting.
- The Forgotten Scroll - Deflect Magic was added to the GM Shop for Tank, BD, and SwS classes. Please note that this skill DOES NOT increase M def, it increases the chance for your enemy to fail magic on you.
- Adding a Party Matching button to GM Shop Services, .info, and the Raid Status windows. Its a under utilized feature.
- Community board update, the player list is now under the region tab, and the clan tab now works as well. Clan leaders can also set a Clan Notice for now on.
- Community board small update, now shows Heroes.
- CTF bug fix and the people who used it and didnt report it suck.
- Updated the server rules to have a new layout and better organization and also added more detail to some rules and increased punishment for some.., including violating chat rules, and olympiad rules have changed and now requires everyone to wear s80 +7 gear or equivilant, so dont go in there with +0 gear.
- The passive summon boost now improves accuracy and evasion of summons as well.
- Fixed a problem where a certain augmentation skill was given, when your item says something different.
