    Lapislazuli got a reaction from sebast44 in Imbalanced PUS items removed   
    USKO was a really fun game, even after controversial expansions... until players suddenly started getting bombarded by pay-2-win PUS items (such as Dragon Boxes) among other crucial additions and strategies that forever changed the playstyle of Knight Online.
     
    We're proud to announce that the following items will never be present in ApexKO's PUS:

    Quite simple.
    Finding The NPC:

    1. Go to moradon
    2. Find yourself in middle of both TP gates
    3. Turn right (the side where White Shadow is standing)
    4. Turn around the corner to the left and keep going until you find the npc.
     
    Items needed
    -3x Old Uniques (must be identical, sealed or not doesn't matter)
    -5 Nest Scrap (loot from monsters in Monster Stone instances and mining)
    -50 Scraps of Steel (loot from monsters in Monster Stone instances and mining)
    -1 Soft Stone (Acquire this on the NPC itself, buy it for 1m in the "Alchemy stone sales" tab)
    Optional: Dragon's Scale.

    Note that this process isn't guaranteed, meaning you can fail the upgrade and lose all materials in the process. To make it a 100% guaranteed upgrade, you need a Dragon's Scale. You can acquire this item from winning the Forgotten Temple, Power-up Store, Felankor Chest or buying it from player merchants at Moradon.

    Lapislazuli got a reaction from Alsahim in this ones for the mages out there. ice mages get 2 freezes. lightning gets 2 blinks. fire mages had 2 heals because we cant escape. now it is a dot..   
    Vampiric Fire was changed to behave that way in USKO a long time ago. Go figure. Old Vampiric Fire was overpowered.
     
    Fire focuses on raw damage, almost 50% more damage on every spell compared to ice and light.
    Ice and lightning focus on utility / party support.
     
    You can't get the best of both worlds in one skill tree.

    So in your opinion turning bosses into pretty much regular monsters is a good idea. The feeling of getting coined sure is a miserable one, I suppose that will be happening a lot more often now
     
    Also, how can you be so sure that the same clans won't camp the entire day? I've seen clans run bowl for hours on end. This might increase a little of activity at the expense of trivializing the concept of a boss, but it will surely not bring new players or lowbies to cz (perhaps at the start, until they leave within minutes due to getting 1 shot by thirsty rogues).
     
    Anyway, it seems too extreme of a change to me, maybe a middle ground can be found. Having the minimum respawn window be 1 hour is fine and dandy IMO, but having all of the bosses including the chaos stone respawn in a time frame of 30 minutes, every hour? I'm not too sure about that. Should, if anything, slowly test the waters little by little as opposed to turning the entire system upside down over night. It could really mess the economy, activity, mood, among other things.

    IMO a +7 PD is superior to even a DV or CHD at +8.

    The boss respawn times could be slightly lowered. Right now they seem excessive and people often give up camping bowl before long.
     
    Bach type bosses' drop rate could be slightly lowered if this happens.

    Talias give you lower ac compared to high tier armors, you lose out on set bonuses, stats, damage and are only effective against one of the 8+ weapon / elemental varieties.
     
    The tradeoffs are there, and then you remember that acid potions exist!
     
    To me, the satisfaction of destroying someone's precious talia skin exceeds the frustration of hitting very low damage on a target occasionally.

    I disagree. If you want to farm, there's a risk that comes with it.
     
    I've played several servers, both USKO and private, and I've never seen a "nation taking control" of every single farming or exping spot.

    1. Topic hijacking is not allowed (ex: You sell X for 20 and some other person comes into your thread saying he's selling it for 15).
    2. Prefixes are not mandatory, yet it is recommended to use words that everyone can understand such as "sell", "trade" or "buy"
    3. It is advised to not create excessive threads for multiple items, try to merge them into one thread if possible.
    4. Excessive thread bumping is not allowed.
    5. USD and account trades won't be banned, but you will do them at your own risk. The ApexKO staff won't be held responsible for any scam or fraud regarding this kind of trades.
    6. Advertising USD trades in our forums/games or social media sites will lead to a ban.

    Lapislazuli got a reaction from sebast44 in Things that might kill the server   
    Right now the ridic exp rates trivialize questing. You get so much more exp by just grinding stuff.
     
    Also, we have no daily schedule for events that would otherwise give you 10-20% of your level exp per individual event completion. It's not accurate to judge how quick the exp goes tbh.
     
    My suggestion is to find a nice balance between reducing exp required per level and reducing exp per monster kill so that quests are more effective, in a way that the exp rate is almost as easy as it is right now (with all the events on) and make exp gain past level 80 cut by half so that hardcore exp grinding people also have something going for them.
     
    Example:
     
    X level requires 1000 exp
    Monster gives 10 exp
    Quest gives 50 exp
    Event gives 15% of the level (150 exp)
     
    change it to...
     
    X level requires 850 exp
    Monster gives 8 exp
    Quest still gives 50 exp
    Event gives 15% of the level (127 exp)
     
    Something like that... probably too late to change it now. But that's what I would do.

    But the thing is that no one is forcing you to buy premium. You can play USKO without premium for example, hence the phrase "Free 2 Play.
     
    I somewhat agree and disagree with this topic because from past experience and observation, it's a two way street. If the EXP is made easier, users will max out quicker, which will lead to boredom quicker, which could lead to "killing the server" quicker. Secondly, the same people who are judging the "hard exp" haven't even completed many of the EXP quests which are available in every single zone you could possibly teleport to. Before making a drastic change such as reducing the EXP I think we should tally up the total EXP that can be granted by doing all the quests first and see what that adds up to.
     
    That's just my opinion though. We had users who hit level 83 in 2-3 days before gear was dispensed at +8 and when the rate was 200% EXP -- mostly on genie, without EXP quests.
     
    That's just my opinion though, everyone wants quick access to CZ, but no one wants to grind -- find a PK server then?
     
    When you folks played USKO did you refuse to war or go to CZ without reaching max level? Oh, me either 
     
    And if everyone following your logic about not wanting to spend 15$ dollars, this server is good as dead then, since it will survive on donations (especially after the amount of money they have pumped into this project (not to mention literally thousands of hours of work)).

    Upgradable is fine, 15 DD isn't that bad, and you actually have to upgrade it to have it (as opposed to simply getting a +6/25 out of nowhere).
