  1. Beta

    Hi there, First of all, beta (should) be a very similar experience to official in terms of drop and exp rates, we obviously reserve the right to change them but we don't expect any major changes will happen to them. All of our current (and future) GMs are limited; there's no way in which they can give advantages to anyone, furthermore all commands they can actually use (which are very few) are logged and will obviously be monitored. We try to keep the server as close as possible to the lines of official KO, aside from possibly balance tweaks if they're deemed necessary. Bosses currently spawn the way you were used to during MYKO, but are on a random spawn timer (so as to deter players from camping them). The Chaos Stone also spawns in Ronark Land, which spawns bosses as it does in USKO. As for listening to what the community wants, yes, we will consider what the vast majority of the community has to say, however our personal beliefs about our server stand way stronger so unless a complaint is compelling enough to convince us otherwise, no changes will be made to something as sensitive as EXP / drop rates. Thank you for your interest in Apex KO!

  3. Hi everyone, We're hard at work fixing the last few remaining bugs and getting the database side of things ready. One of the things that's been particularly annoying is not knowing the name of the "supplies" that should spawn in Nereids Island (boat war map). If anyone has any information about what these supplies are called, please reply to this thread! For those of you that need a refresh on what they're supposed to do, killing them while losing the war rewards your nation with 50% of the point difference between El Morad and Karus. Thank you guys!
  4. You might want to add the option for upgradeable weapon defence armors (e.g. +7/15 DD).
  5. Alpha stage 2 progress

    Hi there, Thank you all for participating so far! PvP damage definitely needs some more work and we won't rest until this is sorted, in the meantime - please try to enjoy the server as we work diligently towards a fix for the biggest problems right now. Thank you!
  6. You misunderstood what we're doing right now, it's still Alpha and as for activity issues; The people that have been helping out so far have, imho, been far more helpful then what we'd achieve by having a massive population. This way it allows us to work closely together with our (future) players and ensure that everything works the way it should. Furthermore we haven't advertised this server on any of the turkish forums yet either, as we don't feel it's ready to do so yet.
  7. Hi everyone, We'll be transferring into the second stage of our alpha testing, which will open at 5th of December 2014 11AM CEST (GMT +1). For this stage we'll be making the following changes: Players start at level 83 (with all skills unlocked) Players will start with a variety of items for their class Players will start with 720k NP Upgrading has been disabled (except for reverse unlocking) During this stage we'd like to get your feedback on PvP and PvE damage. Furthermore, as the alpha is now open to everyone, be sure to hustle your friends for some PKing to have some great fun! We hope to see you all in the bowl!
  8. Alpha testing - Stage 2.

    Yes, you will be granted a set of PK gear, and unlimited scroll resupplies from [VIP Manager] Juliane
  9. Alpha Schedule

    Hello everyone, Our Open Alpha schedule is as follows : Game testing related : 12/5 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes) 12/5 5:30PM CEST - Chaos Dungeon (expected to last around 20 minutes) 12/5 6:00PM CEST - Juraid Mountain (expected to last around 50 minutes) 12/6 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes) 12/6 5:30PM CEST - Chaos Dungeon (expected to last around 20 minutes) 12/6 6:00PM CEST - Lunar War (expected to last around 2 hours) 12/6 8:00PM CEST - Forgotten Temple (expected to last around an hour) 12/7 5:00PM CEST - Border Defense War (expected to last around 30 minutes) 12/7 5:30PM CEST - Chaos Dungeon (expected to last around 20 minutes) 12/7 6:00PM CEST - Juraid Mountain (expected to last around 50 minutes) We will do a head count on the amount of people able to attend the day before to ensure there will be enough players to have atleast 1 full instance. If these are deemed bug free we can start to form a regular schedule at which these events will run. Thank you!
  10. Alpha Schedule

    Schedule's been adjusted to account for the new date!
  11. Alpha Schedule

    Schedule's been updated for Alpha Stage 2!
  12. We could also keep the 'distinctive' premiums, remove the free items (except for trina / karivdis pieces), and put those up for sale separately, reducing the cost of them (as a trade-off for reducing their bonus)
  13. As someone who absolutely doesn't care about the symbols this might be hard to comprehend for me, but can you voice exactly where the problem with the WAR premium lies, is it the NP bonus + WAR flashes stacking, and if so, are there any more parts to that premium that you deem too powerful (irrelevant of its price)?
  14. Alpha testing

    This is correct, we are very close to transitioning into the PvP stage, we'll be notifying everyone through email once we do!
  15. server status?

    Hi there, Thanks for your interest in Apex KO, we'll be inviting more alpha testers soon! The server is currently in test mode and will be for a while, we'd like to ensure everything is working as expected before launching (e.g. fix bugs, exp rates, drop rates, etc.)
  16. Wouldn't you just use a buffer priest to achieve this though?
  17. Aah, I understand the question now; No, that won't work - it'd work like a completely seperate item that has no functionality ingame except for being able to trade it in for the points. e.g. 100 PUS points item, 200 PUS points item, etc.
  18. As opposed to an item from mobs? Not sure if I understand your question, please do elaborate
  19. The 2K HP / 350 AC will be in the PUS too, however at a (relatively much) higher price, to keep this somewhat of a premium. Whether they'll be sold from the start of the server remains to be seen; I'm personally inclined to keep them out for a while until the (majority of the) server reaches the end of the EXPing process. As for the undying scrolls, i'm not quite sure whether we want them to be in there; We would like to give buffers a role in the server too and making everything buyable in the PUS regarding buffs seems to counter this idea.
  20. When this timer expires, the keys will start to be activated and emails sent out. After you've received your email you should apply your personal code to your own account, and distribute the invite codes to your friends. After applying your code you'll be able to download the client. Hope to see you all soon!
  21. Hi there, I hear your concerns regarding scrolls; I would like to know if a solution like this would be more acceptable. 1500/300/AP/SW scrolls will be available only through the PUS, however the cost of these will be low. Furthermore the points used in the PUS can be traded in for ingame items which can then be sold to other players who can convert those items back to points which they can use themselves. I'll be waiting for some good feedback on this!
  22. Alpha Schedule

    Yes, basically every feature in the game should be run over; however a LOT of these features is something you guys will be doing without input from us (think trading, partying, upgrading; anything you would normally do in KO). The events such as Juraid need input from us as we have not yet defined a proper schedule for these to run periodically (we'd like to make sure they function correctly before scheduling them).
  23. We don't have any concrete plans for the PUS for now, however I would imagine it would be USKO like (minus dragon boxes, ibex potions, and anything else deemed too powerful)
  24. First :)

    Web server needs to be updated before you can apply for Alpha (Edit: which has long since been done)
  25. Welcome to the Alpha!

    Hello everyone, Thank you for your willingness to join our Alpha, we hope to hear a lot of feedback from all of you! - twostars & Aesteris
