  4. Required Light Rest and INT

    You can't stop stuns, no matter how much resistances you have (int on your character doesn't affect the stun rate, int on the mages end does)
  5. Patch notes (09/03/2018)

    Changelog Under the Castle event added Few notes on the event itself: 1. Make sure you have enough inventory space to receive the rewards (they're automatically added to your inventory) 2. When a boss dies (after it's cycled through all phases), and the next boss is spawned, make sure to LOOT the corpse (everyone has their own personal loot box!) 3. When you die, your gear is automatically reduced to 0 durability, repair at the [Sundries] near the spawn location (/town) or be prepared to die a lot more often! 4. Manufacturing of the items requires the materials and awards you with (+6) Under the Castle items - both armors and weapons - and upgrades are to be done as usual Manufacturing gets your "normal" Under the Castle weapons, their <selfname> variants are currently only available from the bosses themselves, and at a very low drop rate. Furthermore, the <selfname> variants are currently locked to (+8) normal / (+5) reverse. The normal variants are upgradeable up to (+11) reverse. Updated beginner items : - Unupgradable Rosetta Armors are now (+9) reverse - Unupgradable mage staffs have been changed to Krowaz staffs (+10) reverse (without the curse effect on them) - Unupgradable Secret-Silver Earring, Platinum Earring, Elf-Metal Earring, and Light Belt of Life are now (+2) - Unupgradable High Class weapons (+11) reverse are now changed to their Unupgradable Hepa's High Class weapons (+11) reverse variants - Unupgradable True Silver (+8) is now upgraded to it's (+9) variant - Unupgradable Iron Necklace (+1) is now upgraded to it's (+3) variant Mage damage calculations are now fixed (Elemental damage from rings is now correctly attributed, as well as bonus MP from items) Castle Siege War winners will now receive a voucher they can exchange at [VIP Manager] Juliane for a full set of Dark Knight armor (+11) reverse (lasts 48 hours) Top 4 ladder ranking users will now receive a voucher they can exchange at [VIP Manager] Juliane for 3 days of the follow items: Top 1: Darkness Weapons (+11) reverse (specific for their class) and a Dark Knight Armor Set (+11) reverse Top 2 ~ 4: Darkness Weapons (+11) reverse (specific for their class) Warrior's Battle Cry skill no longer provides +15 STR bonus (as per official) The [Weekly] Better Weapons quest has been removed from [Outpost Captains] in Ronark Land Drop rates for Super shells is increased on Titans, Falcons, and Evil Wizards in Ronark Land Event rewards that are PUS items (Trinas, Karivdis, Dragon Scales) will now expire in 24 hours after obtaining them The daily 1 hour DC premium item has been changed to 1 hour WAR premium Oreads voucher is now tradable Improved anti-cheat detection
  6. Remaning Timing

    Official is actually 15 seconds as well as per their data.
  7. make ultima harder

    I'd like to say that realistically any boss with significant HP is always going to have this problem due to rogue drains :x

  10. Patch notes (23/02/2018)

    Changelog Fixed a bug with clan leader handovers as a result of the rework we did on this system a little while back Fixed up all clans that were affected by the aforementioned bug (whether they were aware or not) Implemented offline merchants, which we're excited to be testing this weekend, and are scheduled to go live with the Under the Castle expansion. More information on how to use this new feature this weekend can be found here Fixed all bugs found with UTC during the last testing round Finished implementation of UTC and surrounding systems (the expansion announcement will be hitting later today) Added Teleport Gate's to Bifrost towns (eventhough the zone is no longer used, if everyone in your party dies there was no way to leave the zone aside from waiting for Bifrost to finish) Fixed an issue with Yeniceri cospre exchanges (certain vouchers couldn't be used) Fixed a bug with merchant messages being considered spam sometimes.
  11. tbl

    Thanks for sharing this, someone else also opened a topic on this. We'll be looking into it and resolving it as soon as possible EDIT: After having looked into it, it looks like it's nothing we haven't seen before, and just because they manage to remove the client side cooldown does in no way mean the server doesn't enforce it. There's 3 things being (seemingly) abused in this vide: Minor heal - which, if you slow the video down and look at the information message box, shows you that a <lot> of those minor heals are actually failing, as they haven't come off cooldown yet server side. It seems as if it's much faster than it should be because of all the spam in there. Range - this is indeed too far, having said that, it seems worse than it actually is because he's trying it on worms - our adaptive range checks only apply to players attacking other players. There's a few ideas we've got to fix these kinds of problems too, so we're gonna start looking into those. Helis - visually the cooldown is removed, but he isn't exactly spamming it. In fact, he wouldn't be able to and this is the same speed / rate of attacks someone would have when they're combo'ing (and no faster than that). Surprised he didn't show potions having no cooldown (as those work differently, he wouldn't be able to :))
  12. bitfrost Npc's

    Hi there, The NPCs were removed as the Bifrost zone is only open for Ultima at the moment to prevent abuse (NP farming, etc.) Having said that, removing the teleport gate from there is an oversight and will be fixed with the restart (we've spawned the teleport gate manually for now to help you guys out) Thanks, Aesteris
  13. Dual Weapons Bug

    Closing this as it is not an issue. Works as per official.
  14. UTC: Scrolls deleted on entry & exit

    I can't reproduce the scrolls being deleted on entry / exit, I've tried multiple times with various situations (relogging, dying, etc.) but nope - any hints you could give out here?
  15. Remaning Timing

    Yes, INT increases glacier slow rate, but in reality the difference between 60 int and 255 int isn't that big when factoring in the opponent's glacier resistance.
  16. Remaning Timing

    1st clip - N/A 2nd clip - same as it is on official. 3rd clip - Works as intended (Glacier / Flame damage has no effect on slow rates and using flame rings to cast glacier skills merely reduces your damage) 4th clip - Works as intended (Ice Cube makes you blink, invulnerable to damage, and at the same time unable to use potions - effectively rendering you useless in a fight) 5th clip - Works as intended (Read comment on 3rd clip) Thanks.
  17. Remaning Timing

    Glacier Damage does not affect slow rates at all, your INT and your opponent's ice resistance does.
  18. Patch notes (09/01/2018)

    Changelog Reworked how warp skills are checked, who should be alive in specific cases in particular. This solves a problem with Descent being able to be cast on dead players and going on cooldown (it no longer goes on cooldown now) and potentially other problems with other skills. Commanders in wars will now be shrunken again after being under the effects of the Bombastic curse. Commanders in wars will now have their original size preserved for the duration of them being a commander, to be restored after they are transformed back to what they were previously. National Points earned by Commanders in wars are now correct again. Added new functionality to help diagnose and alleviate lag problems. Added NPC to Ronark Land through which you can access Latenoid's room (requires all 7 old Bifrost fragments) ONLY while Bifrost is active. Note: You do NOT know whether Latenoid is there when you go in - if he's not there, he hasn't spawned yet or has been killed already. Minor optimisation to Draki's Ranking lookups. Added support for improved wallhack detection, which we can use to better manage places people aren't supposed to go, with support for changes live, while the server is online

    For those of you that are experiencing this problem: When these problems start happening, please take a moment to help us diagnose this. 1. Open a command prompt (cmd.exe) 2. Type in "tracert login.apexko.com" 3. Make a screenshot of the output (after it's done entirely - this may take a while!) 4. Send a PM to twostars & me with a link to the screenshot We'll be able to diagnose where the problem lies, after personally experiencing it today it seemed to be a problem with LibertyGlobal (an internet carrier) We've also added a few more options for us to help alleviate problems ad-hoc, which we need to test with someone experiencing issues (if they're different) before enabling for everyone on the server Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience
  20. New Armours

    Fixed this just now, we'll reload things live and you guys can go ahead and reverse those too. Seems like I overlooked adding the (+8) -> (+5) rebirth upgrade entries even though I did the (+7) ones! Thank you!
  21. Halloween Event 2017

    Hey everyone, It's that spooky time of the year again and this year we've got the following for you in store! The halloween monsters will spawn all around Ronark Land and will drop Halloween Chests, inside these chests you'll find a variety of items; The most sought after is the Darkness Weapon Exchange voucher (the voucher itself lasts 72h, and can be traded for a Darkness Weapon of your choice which also lasts only 72h!) The Halloween chests can be exchanged through [VIP Manager] Juliane We hope everyone has a great halloween! ~Apex KO Staff
  22. Refund for KC spend on shadow pieces

    Small update: Just checked, a whopping 6 Shadow Pieces were used in total, 3 by 1 player, 2 by another, and 1 by the third. You'll have the KC returned to the accounts by the time you read this, closing
  23. Refund for KC spend on shadow pieces

    Hi there, I understand the frustration and we will compensate those that have used pieces before the official guide was up. In future, don't trust user posted guides on new content. While we aim to stay close to official, considering the server is now a PK server, certain rates will be different. Finally, you will yield much better results in trying to get us to do anything for you with a normal attitude - yes, your frustration is understandable, but I'd like to think we have never been and never will be unreasonable. We're here to help with these things and provide you better support than official does, but simply acknowledging mistakes are human and bringing it to our attention like say "Hey guys, we used a bunch of shadow pieces prior to you having released the guide, is there anything you can do for us?" would be very much appreciated. Thank you, we'll sort you guys out as soon as possible
  24. [Guide] Dark Knight Armor

    DARK KNIGHT ARMORS Hey everyone, We've recently updated the Bifrost monsters to drop new "Dark Fragments" rather than the original fragments. This change also introduces the ability to craft Dark Knight Armor. We hope this guide will help those that want to create these legendary armors! First off, how to get the new Dark Fragments? Simple, just kill the monsters in Bifrost as you did before, nothing's changed there! The required materials needed to craft the new Dark Knight Armors can be checked by looking at the Manufacturing Guide accessible from [Hepa Pupil] Shojin The required items to create these armors are basically the same for every class with the exception of the "Recipe" used. An example of the required items to create a Dark Knight Warrior Pauldron is below. The "Ancient Armor Mold" can be found in the Sundries NPC for 55 million Noah each. The "Ancient Sheet Metal", "Light Elemental Stone", and "Transmutation Stone" can be obtained exactly as their discription tells you: The "Ancient Sheet Metal" is ONLY dropping from Pride, Gluttony, Wrath, and Sloth in Bifrost - the stronger the mob, the higher chance. (DC flashes are advisable as their drop rate is rather low!) The "Light Elemental Stone" is ONLY obtainable by talking to [Hepa Pupil] Shojin and selecting the "Dark Knight Material" option in his dialog. This is a National Point gamble, you gamble with 1000 of your National Points for a chance to obtain the item. This is infinitely repeatable provided you have enough National Points to do so. The "Transmutation Stone" is obtainable from ALL monsters in Bifrost, but again the drop rate is fairly low. (DC flashes are again advisable!) Finally, the last ingredient (the recipes) are obtainable by exchanging the new Dark Fragments obtained from killing the Bifrost monsters after the update happened (the normal fragments DO NOT have a chance to drop these recipes!), the rate to obtain these goes up with the grade of the fragment, from pretty garbage down below to a decent chance for the best fragments. After going through all this trouble, you'll be glad to hear that the manufacturing rate for the Dark Knight Armor is 100% (NO Shadow Piece required!), and the resulting Dark Knight Armor will be given to you at (+6). That's it, happy hunting!
