red123 got a reaction from IIIAmJohnWick in Post-Halloween Event Decision
I'd like to see duration pot/ undy sc/ red pot/ blue pot, ... added through PK in cz and wars with expiration, definitely not in PUS or sundries.
Krowaz +14 rev would require stronger beginner items and possibly the need for lower class items to be upgraded to +21 rev, then we'd need stronger uniques to block such AP, nah it'll suck. I think item grades are fine.
Agreed we need some more farming spots and events. I wanted to get set warrior krowaz+11 but I'm so worried that price will drop alot when/if Holly armor is back. Yet I don't know when it'll happen. Hopefully soon.
red123 reacted to twostars in [Maintenance update] Server is back online!
The maintenance is finally over and the server's back online on a new dedicated server with our new provider.
Without the disk I/O issues, a lot of the lag we were experience should be completely gone now, and the shift back should also reduce the ping for many players.
By way of apology, players who login in the next 2 weeks (once per account) will receive:
- 1 x Cospre set [5 days] (includes armor, helmet, Pathos Gloves x 2, Hellfire wings)
- 7 days of Switching premium
Note that these will be sent to the first character that logs in, however once logged in you can exchange the vouchers and then transfer them to one of your alts on the same account.
Additionally, as we know that UTC is something that everyone looks forward to, we've rescheduled UTC for Bifrost time (only for today). This is in an hour from this post.
Once again, thanks to everyone for sticking it out with us. It's been a rough ride.
red123 reacted to twostars in [Update] Extended server maintenance
WEBSITE & FORUMS ARE FINALLY BACK. Will keep updating here.
Thankyou so much for your patience & support during this time.
15/11/2018: Server is down for extended maintenance to replace a problematic disk drive which is causing lag (requiring pulling data off an existing RAID array and reinstalling the operating system).
It is expected our provider will begin this procedure at 9:00 AM server time (UTC+2), so before then we need to ensure all of our raw data is backed up for quick restoration.
Thanks for your patience.
Current provider was supposed to replace 2 disks (well, 1, but they insisted on replacing both). This is apparently too difficult a task to ask of them. Lot of waiting around while they do a whole lot of nothing.
Ordered new server with another provider. This was approved and provisioned way faster (should've just done this from the start).<br />
Setting up new dedicated server, downloaded & restored backups, configured services & restored functionality.
Currently testing everything to make sure it's still working correctly, not too long now.
UPDATE (15/11/2018 10:40 AM UTC+2):
Everything is backed up, however provider has yet to commence hardware changes. Waiting on them at this point.
UPDATE (15/11/2018 05:45 PM UTC+2):
Provider hasn't yet started. They asked for confirmation, which they received but haven't yet begun as of this time.
It will likely be down for several hours longer, while we sleep and they hopefully do their thing - eventually (we waited around as long as we could). Sorry for the inconvenience.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 12:00 AM UTC+2):
We've (finally) been told that due to unexpected technical limitations, our intended setup isn't actually possible.
So instead, we've been forced to swap another storage drive to the same SSD, and bump both of them up as they're too small for our needs if both are required to be the same (installed independently, not in a RAID together).
This is a lot less ideal, but it'll do for now until we can re-evaluate and perhaps start looking at other providers in future (again. RIP).
We'll update this again once they update us further (which they may not do until after they're done, judging by their previous update).
Thanks for your patience.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 06:00 AM UTC+2):
Provider once again asked for confirmation, to which we responded pretty much immediately afterwards. No indication of when they'll begin...
UPDATE (16/11/2018 03:00 PM UTC+2):
Ordered a new dedicated server from another provider.
As it's the weekend, this order may not be processed until Monday, but one way or another we'll get the server back up. If our current provider gets around to dealing with our request, we'll continue to use them for a short while until we can switch over to the new provider as their support is ridiculously unacceptable.
Thanks again for your patience & understanding.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 04:00 PM UTC+2):
We've been informed that the drives are "being installed now" and that the OS will take "24 hours to install & update" because they "ensure servers are always patched up".
UPDATE (16/11/2018 05:20 PM UTC+2):
(dedicated server finally went offline, so it appears they're doing things.)
UPDATE (16/11/2018 07:00 PM UTC+2):
New dedicated server order was processed, purchasing licenses & preparing to install the operating system. No update on our current dedicated server.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 07:05 PM UTC+2):
Waiting for license order to be processed.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 09:00 PM UTC+2):
License order has been processed, so I can now begin installing the new dedicated server (screw the old provider. >_>)
UPDATE (16/11/2018 09:05 PM UTC+2):
Operating system is now installing.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 09:35 PM UTC+2):
Operating system is installed. Downloading & installing updates.
UPDATE (16/11/2018 10:00 PM UTC+2):
Downloading backup data (may take a bit).
UPDATE (17/11/2018 04:00 AM UTC+2):
Restoring data & configuring services.
UPDATE (17/11/2018 05:30 AM UTC+2):
Restored database, website & forums functionality. Can finally see the light at the end of this tunnel!
UPDATE (17/11/2018 09:00 AM UTC+2):
Prepared compensation, and testing everything to make sure it's still working correctly after restoration. Not too long now.
red123 reacted to KissOfNeo in Event end to fast
thats the point i was saving one to use on a char but letting the one i had run out due to missing few days of event ( personal matter ) .
Used kc to buy some items t set up char for couple days fun with it and bang everything gone all of a sudden.
Event ending in 3 days Notice would have been nice hint to all use ya darkness vouchers and enjoy rewareds before all gone .
That would have been better no just log in and d/c patch gone.
red123 reacted to Aesteris in Kurian's AP/Skill bugged?
I've investigated this by creating a new warrior and kurian character.
I've statted them both 255 in STR and left the remaining stat points undistributed.I've taken of all armor / accessories / cospre items, and equipped the Untradable Hepa's Raptor (+11) reverse.
Furthermore, skill point distribution was as follow; Kurian: 75 points in Attack (rest undistributed), Warrior: 83 points in Passion (rest undistributed).
This yields the following results:
Kurian AP: 2215
Warrior AP: 1856
Furthermore, as the warrior requires the buff to be able to use Cry Echo, the AP for the warrior increased by exactly 100 to 1956 upon using the buff.
The damage on the <Iron Scarecrow> in Moradon was as follows:
Kurian: 1800 ~ 1970
Warrior: 1600 ~ 1790
The damage difference is easily explained by the difference in AP, what's causing your difference - I don't know, but I'm guessing you're not accounting for something.
Closing this topic.
red123 reacted to twostars in Patch notes (01/11/2018)
Implemented Bad Luck protection for Darkness Weapon vouchers from [Halloween Chests]. Every chest you exchange will increase your chances of obtaining a Darkness Weapon voucher until it's guaranteed, so it's not left completely to luck if you'll get one (it will just dictate when, not "if"). Increased the expiration time on several items obtained from [Halloween Chests] to 24 hours. Removed [Blessed Upgrade Scrolls] and [Reverse Item Strengthen Scrolls] from the [Halloween Chests] (slightly increasing some of the other drop rates to compensate). [Update] Darkness Mace's anti-heal effect now deals 1:1 damage to healing (up from half the healing amount).
red123 reacted to twostars in Patch notes (30/10/2018)
Tweaked the pacing of the Halloween invasions. These will now spawn more frequently spaced out over more waves so that it can flow better. The basic "Archery" skill (i.e. R attacks with a bow) can now be used on event monsters (e.g. Pumpkin Lanterns), but only at close range. This means archers will no longer need to unequip their bow in order to attack these event monsters, while keeping things relatively fair with the other classes (as they all require R attacks at melee range). Note that these will still do the same amount of damage to event monsters as R attacks (20). Boss events can now stack. This fixes an issue with existing boss events not being run correctly with the Halloween invasions active. This also fixes an issue with boss NP events being wrongfully saved for restarts. Pumpkin Lanterns in Ronark Land will now spawn more randomly to further help alleviate issues with clients freezing when loading them in. Resolved a rare server crash we've experienced for a while (usually months apart). Fixing it required tweaking certain access logic, so changes technically affected quite a large portion of the codebase. If we see any stability issues as a result of this, they should be resolved fairly quickly. Halloween Transformations now allow the use of bows. That said, the model would rather throw the arrow, but hey - it's functional enough. [HP Scroll 60%] (Undying scrolls) can no longer be used on party members. This unintuitive behaviour was responsible for many confused reports claiming the skill didn't work, because it was failing when unintentionally using it on a party member who had a HP scroll on already. We believe there's no real reason this scroll should work any different to the others that can only be used on yourself; all it does is it causes unnecessary confusion.
red123 reacted to Built4CZ in Halloween event
he means them pumpkins he has to take off his bow in order to kill them leaving him defenseless in cz vs attackers of the other nation when all other class's can keep there weapons / shields on he also got a transformation scroll from the Halloween chest that he cant use because of his bow ....
red123 reacted to twostars in Halloween Event 2018!
It's that spooky time of year, so by bringing back community favourites and introducing content that the community has been requesting, we hope you too will enjoy this year's new and improved Halloween Event!
When you enter Ronark Land, you'll find [Jack O Lantern] welcoming you in your base.
He'll offer you various quests which you may undertake, ranging from things like
hunting Pumpkin Lanterns to finding and Trick or Treating with the [Costumed Citizens] around Ronark Land.
Each of these quests (and many of the new residents of Ronark Land) will award you with [Toffee Apples].
You can exchange these at [Jack O Lantern] for a variety of items.
You can use these to buy items such as the long-awaited [Duration Extender]
or [HP scroll (60%)] (Undying scroll).
Or perhaps use these to purchase a [Halloween Chest] where you have a chance to
obtain Darkness weapons, Lunar Tattoos, or an assortment of other goodies similar to last year's chest.
Note that the [Halloween Chest] can drop the other purchasable goodies
(Red/Blue potions, HP scroll [60%], Duration Extender, etc).
When you find a [Costumed Citizen], be sure to stop and say hello.
They may just "Treat" you to some [Toffee Apples].
Be careful though, some may "Trick" you!
Be sure to dress up for the occasion (wear a Halloween mask!)
and they'll be sure to give you more.
Group up with friends so that everyone can share the rewards!
Throughout the Halloween event, invaders will periodically break through into our world
and try to take over the Ronark Land bowl.
Put a stop to them and earn a ton of [Toffee Apples] in the process!
Ronark Land has also been overrun with Pumpkin Lanterns.
In their travels, it seems they've picked up a lot of [Toffee Apples]
that you'll be able to make your own once you deal with this frightful
While the Halloween event is active, you'll also receive [Enemy Corpses]
when killing players in Ronark Land.
These can be turned in to [Jack O Lantern] so that he can help their
souls to cross over -- and give you a daily reward for doing so.
Just because the world is being invaded with those from another world
doesn't mean we should be slacking when it comes to dealing with our world's threats.
Complete the Juraid Mountain, Border Defense War, Chaos Dungeon, Forgotten Temple
and Under the Castle events during the Halloween event for tokens that
[Jack O Lantern] will exchange for more [Toffee Apples].
This year's Halloween event will run for a few weeks (to compensate for being a *little* bit late), so there's plenty of time (and activities!) to obtain the loot you want - even for those playing more casually, the quick & easy daily quests will net you at LEAST a guaranteed [Halloween Chest] a day. You'll be farming even more than that while actually doing these quest activities.
Also note that if you forget to pick up one of [Jack O Lantern's] quests, it'll be picked up automatically when you make progress towards it. So nobody misses out!
We hope you have as much fun with this event as we had putting it together for you guys.
Have a happy (and SAFE!) Halloween.
