    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.

    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.

    Remaning Timing

    Glacier Damage does not affect slow rates at all, your INT and your opponent's ice resistance does.

    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

    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!

    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

    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

    [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!

    [Guide] Delos Dungeon

    Hey everyone, We've recently added the Delos Dungeon to our server. We are writing this guide to help those out that are strong enough to be victorious in Castle Siege War but have no idea what this zone is all about! First off, the entrance NPC to this zone is located in Delos, at the back of the castle (where previously the abyss teleport gate was!) Once inside the dungeon, you will find the following monsters : 1. Tarantula 2. Wandering Ghost Knight 3. Bloody Tarantula (boss) 4. Bloody Krowaz (boss) The Bloody Krowaz drops the "Blooded Fantasy Cube", and the Bloody Tarantula drops the "Gold Peels" item. Both of these are needed to create the Castellan Weapons. Both bosses are on a random 7 ~ 9 hour respawn time. The normal Tarantulas drop "Tarantula's Teeth", these can be exchanged for 200k each (by accepting the quest and completing it at the entrance NPC in the back of the Castle in Delos). These Tarantula's Teeth are also needed to receive the "Castellan's Key" item. This item is required to enter the room the Dark Dragon (boss) is in. To enter the room with Dark Dragon in it, you must have the Castellan's Key to enter. Once you have the key, proceed to the teleporter located at the back of one of the normal Tarantula spawns. NOTE: If you do not have the Castellan's Key, the dialog will not continue and you will not be teleported. The key will be consumed upon teleportation. You will be teleported next to the quest NPC that allows you to exchange the required items for the Castellan Weapons, a bit further down on the ledge, Dark Dragon will be waiting for you. Dark Dragon is on a respawn time of ~18 hours. Finally, if you are a Warrior, Kurian, or Rogue the ONLY quest you're able to get from the NPC for the Castellan Weapons is as follows : For Priests and Mages, the only quest available is the following : That's it for the Delos Dungeon, hopefully this has helped shed some light on things. Happy hunting!

    Inn Bug

    Hey guys, Thank you for the report and sorry for the inconvenience, I was trying to reproduce this problem locally and couldn't seem to manage to. It'd be great if you can provide any additional information (such as, which slot was the item in (in your inventory), and which page + slot did you move it to in your inn hostess, did you drag it there or use right mouse button to let it snap there, how full (or empty) is your inn, how many items did you put into your inn since you opened the UI and it got bugged, etc.) Anything at all that you can correlate when it comes to reproducing this bug is helpful, no matter how small or seemingly unrelated would help Thank you, we'll get it fixed as soon as we can reproduce this!

    ROGUE MINOR BUG!!!!!!!

    We're looking into it, once we have a solution we will push it out
  14. Hey everyone, Following up on twostars' great blog post from last Friday, here is the official announcement of our next "expansion", and yes the new Bifrost gems will also contain part of the materials needed to craft the new armors displayed on the first picture!
  15. Hey everyone, We'd like to get some feedback on the things we've done right, things we can improve upon, and the things you want to see added in the (near) future! Everything is allowed; Please give us some arguments as to why, and we'll be sure to review it all Improving upon each other is allowed (in the case of new content), pointing out flaws is too - however any kind of personal attacks, flaming, or trolling will be removed from the thread Post away!

    List of bugs 2017

    So are you being cancelled by it proc'ing or are you talking about casting a skill that gets cancelled while the buff is active? First one would be a bug, second one I'm not so sure of and would need investigating on official

    List of bugs 2017

    Forgive me for being stupid, but if the shield "goes off", what do you mean; The shield proc'ing or the shield's buff finishing.....?
  20. Aesteris


    That video seems to imply it.... restores priest buffs? Scrolls all have the same visusl effect on people as swift / light feet, no? (Not to mention the uselessness of disabling scrolls for 1 second, which is how long it lasts for...)
  21. Aesteris


    If I remember correctly, its only supposed to work on priest buffs, so it probably did go off, you just didnt notice it?

    Gab adamant curse bug

    Not a bug, the staff skill has a melee component and is therefore blocked.

    Dealt with, use GMs next time!
  24. Hey everyone, With today's patch, we've updated the currently available starter items to be a bit stronger (only unique accessories at the moment), and added a few new ones to hopefully give new players a bit more survivability (and lure some of those mages back - if you know any mage(s) (clans), please help us by asking them to come back! ). Alongside that, we've made Lunar Wars on Saturday be 1 hour earlier (16:00 EU time) and Castle Siege War on Sunday be 4 hours earlier (16:00 EU time) - we've done this in order to ensure the maximum amount of players will be able to join them. We hope you will like these changes! For all changes, head on over to the Patch Notes thread for this week!

    Patch notes (05/02/2017)

    Changelog Changed stun and slow rate calculations. Scream stun rate reduced. Leg cut slow rate is now set instead of calculated. Shock stun for human warriors is now set instead of calculated (Shock stun for Karus warriors was already set instead of calculated). Kurian/Porutu DoT skills (Drakey curses) no longer stack; Only the most recently applied DoT skill will tick. (NOTE: ANY Kurian/Porutu can, and will, overwrite another Kurian's already applied DoT). Kurian/Porutu Rush [Passive] now no longer makes Rush stun with 100% chance, instead it now has a 50% chance to stun. Kurian/Porutu DoT skills (Drakey curses) now enjoy 100% MP contribution (up from 55%). Kurian/Porutu Spear (1H and 2H) AP contribution is now inline with Swords, Clubs, and Axes. Freezing Distance now has no chance of working on targets under 50% of their max health. Freezing Distance now has no chance of working on targets currently holding the Border Defense War debuff. Attempted fix for mage skills hitting players after they town and are already teleported there. Range checks on melee skills have been tightened a bit. Monsters in Ronark Land should no longer aggro on you if you are in combat with one of their "friends". Kurians/Porutus have remained untouched for too long, and we're taking this opportunity to hit them with the nerfhammer. Inspired entirely by the Korean servers, which have introduced these changes after prolonged discussion with the community, we felt as if this will address a few of the key issues with Kurians at the moment. We will be monitoring the situation and take a look at how players respond to these changes, and whether the effect on the balance of this class is similar to how we'd like it to play out.
