- Changes on how one is eligible for new player benefits, right now it just checks if you are younger then 31 days, your character.Now it also checks your online time.You will still get your 30 days, but if a character is older then 30 days and did not play that much they are still entitled to newbie bonuses until they reach 90 hours online (its high because we know people go afk a lot).

- A problem with Guard Armors on Human Fighter Models has been fixed, it was showing Theca textures alongside the guard armor ones.(you must run our updater to see this change)
- Oath Armor Tokens have been added (non tradable versions), but they only last for 30 days.New players will now get access to a random one instantly, that way new players can check our features faster.(please note I already know there is something wrong with Oath Immortal Armor Token icon, it will be fixed next patch).

- Oath Armor Token Chest has been added.This is what gives new players a random Oath Armor Token.New players get one automatically when they create a new character.

- Fixed a problem with our passive skill "Newbie Bonuses".It was giving it to everyone, new or not.Please note it doesnt actually give people newbie bonuses, its just an informative passive to tell newbies to type .newbie to learn about their bonuses.Now it gives it to the proper people.

- A new section of the Voting area of the GM Shop has been added called Joke Items.These items are just for fun, they do not do anything special.Their item names/descriptions have simply been modified to be humorous. For example cocaine has been added to the Joke section.

- Fixed an issue with castle sieges.Players must now stand where the platform is, near the artifact, to actually cast on the artifact (thats what the platform is actually for).There were people somehow casting from strange positions that in which case was hard to hit them, such as behind the artifact, and the sides.This will prevent that!

- Texture/Clipping issues with Guard Armors have been fixed! Also if you would like to see what your character looks like in Guard Armor check out our Facebook/Google+/Twitter pages!

- Fixed an issue with the in game map, the server was spamming cursed weapon tracking packets every time you opened it.Making the in game map completely useless for people if there was a cursed weapon in Gracia, your map would go to Gracia and it wouldnt let you change it to the Aden continent.

- Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday sometime before castle sieges in our servers timezone.This may or may not effect siege times by one hour (pushing it back one hour).It probably wont, but this is a warning just in case.

- We are currently having a Halloween ART CONTEST! Players can use any medium they like including drawing, painting, or programs like Photoshop.Prizes include Bloody Eternal Armor Token (which we have not released yet), donation credit, and never before released mob weapons.Type .contest and/or the forums for more details!

- Fixed an issue with our new PvP Freak Achievement, it was not giving you your +1 when you used a PvP Scroll.Now it does, thanks ELlTE for the report.

- Added the command .newbie, it allows people to quickly see information about the bonuses new players get on our server.

- Added a new passive skill called Newbie Bonuses that new players get, that tells them to type .newbie to see their benefits.Its just to help make them aware of the advantages they get.This skill is removed after your newbie period.

- Player creation screens have been updated.They now show off R grade armors and more.They also show off cooler weapons.This is to encourage new players get interested in the server faster.Please note you will need our newest patch to see this.

- Modified classes on our server no longer get access to their modified skills while in Olympiad.The reason extra skills were given to these classes were to help them in open PvP (full buffs, mass PvP, etc).It was never meant for Olympiad to begin with.Olympiad has much more retail like conditions.

- The animation used when you are granted a new player bonus when you hit specific levels has been updated.

- Lucky Trinket passive now shows up in the proper place in your skill menu.

- The Zombies from invasions have developed a new ability to try and stop you from killing them! They now have the ability to turn you into a Zombie temporarily! (you need to update your client to see this skill).

- The amount of Zombies from an Invasion has Been Increased.

- There is no longer any drop protection from drops from Invasions.

- Recently we added a Summon Buffs button to Event Helper Pablo in events, but I forgot that hes not in CTP/KOTH/CTF.So those events were missing summon buffs.It has now been added.Thanks BornToBeWasted for the report.

- Updated the .commands window, added newer commands, and updated older commands that may have changed.

- Updated the tips in the loading window client side, removed a lot of pointless tips from NCSoft, and edited some of theirs, and added a bunch more of our own.Hopefully it helps some.Note you will only see this if you update your client.

- More item description updates for Oath items, forgot to mention the benefits of Oath items on Belts, and on Oath CP Shirts.Also normally helmets, gaiters, gloves and boots dont have descriptions, but we gave our Oath items descriptions anyway to help new players notice their benefits.You will have to update your client to see the changes.

- The EXP in CoD has been boosted once again, to help promote its use rather then a normal zone.

- We recently fixed .oly so it will show the proper countdown to when the next bonuses were given, before the timer would not change.

- Updated the .faq section and removed some old and now irrelevant information, and added new, more up to date data.

- Fixed Last Breath Rebirth skills showing up on the wrong part of your skill menu.(you need our newest patch for this, so run our updater).

- Updated Rebirth Feathers description, Rebirth Chests descriptions and also Oath Armors descriptions letting people know they are easier to ++, easier to get elemental for and, can be mixed with a normal armor set.

- Updated Battle Field Death Syndrome from Sieges/TW.It was only giving it to people who were signed up for that siege ground when they died.Strangers that are not even supposed to be there would not get it, which is unfair.So now strangers that are not signed up get it too.Additionally if you are not signed up, your death syndrome will have double the duration.

- Recently added extra verifications for Armor Tokens.People were getting away with wearing the armor they wanted, then trading the token away and still having the texture for a while.This is now fixed.

- Added the missing Eternal Armors Shield, and Eternal Armors Sigil to Heavy and Robe selections.

- Players may now adjust the position of debuff messages on their screen from the center or to the left, type .options to change it.However you need our new patch for this to function properly.

- Made CoT slightly easier, most of this was focused on the entrance area though regarding nukers, but some changes were aimed at the rest of the area.

- Gave client side support for Oath items lighting up each item socket on a breastplate to signify a set and its a bonus.Turns out much more people then I ever imagined rely on this light up feature to see if a set is working, rather then actually checking their passives.Too many people assumed Oath did not work.

- Updated a few skills such as Curse Fears client side description to give proper information.Like our servers debuff duration.Also fixed NCSofts client typo for Warrior Ability - Haste, it does work with bows.

- Updated our Zombie Invasion event, the drop rate of the Halloween Cloak has been increased.

- Updated Rebirth windows a little bit more to help people know that you are learning a RANDOM last breath skill, not necessarily the one you want.People are overlooking the warning messages.Hopefully this will help.

- Seraph Armor Token has been added, read below on how to get it!

- Big rebirth changes are now in effect.Your feather of Blessing have been renamed to Rebirth Feathers, and they are no longer tradable.

- New Rebirth Skills have been added, much like the Weapon resist category, you can only choose one from this new category.We are going to call them "Last Breath" skills, because they only work at low HP.

- The new rebirth skills include Last Breath: Guidance, Last Breath: Slow, Last Breath: Toxin, and our old Rsk Evasion rebirth skill has been renamed Last Breath: Evasion, and is already apart of this new category.These last breath skills you can not directly choose them.When you choose a last breath skill you have a random chance of getting any of them (except you wont get the same one twice in a row, for example if you already have Last Breath: Evasion, and you choose a new one, it will randomly select a new one, but not Evasion).It will cost 10 Feathers.

- Please note I am fully aware that the new rebirth skills are showing up in your active/weaken skills instead of your passives, this will be fixed in next weeks patch.

- Rebirths now require you to be 100% into level 85.

- Mini Rebirths have been added, your character will be reset to level 84 instead, and you will gain 1 feather.This way you can constantly be working towards something with out it effecting you like a normal rebirth would.

- Rebirth Chests have been added to the GM Shop for 5 Feathers.They randomly give some Oath GCMs, Oath Top 84 LSs, or some Gold Bars, or even Seraph Armor Token.

- The Halloween cloak has been added (well we had the textures for a while now, was just saving it until October, thanks again Lirael).
