    Dear Apexians,
    We hope everyone has enjoyed the Christmas & New Year event that's been running since December 21.
    As with all good things, they must come to an end, and so will this event.
    Monday, January 14th marks that day for this particular case, so we encourage you to reap the most until then!
    The following items will be removed from your characters once the event finishes:
    Undying Scroll Red Potion Blue Potion Duration Item DC premium (1 day) WAR premium (1 day) EXP premium (1 day) Offline Merchant (1 day) Darkness Weapon Voucher (3 day) Exchanged Darkness weapons (+11) Have fun & play fair,

    Dear Apexians,
    Today marks the start of the new year, and as such everyone in the Apex team wishes you a very happy new year!
    What we'll be doing today will lay the groundwork for Apex in the future. We know it may come as a blow to you personally, but everyone is equally affected.
    Here are some of the future updates we will be pushing now that this band aid has been ripped off:
    1. We will be adding gear to the NP store (purchasable with NP, not LP), which'll allow you to advance your character.
    2. We will be adding expanded rewards for those on the monthly ranking board (up to the top 200, subject to change), indulging more of you (and more newcomers!) in some sweet upgrades by simply playing.
    3. We will be adding a weekly ranking board, which will also be used to reward a whole bunch of you with some gear.
    4. We will be able to activate PK more easily by triggering NP events at certain times, to quickly (re)populate Ronark Land after events (and during downtimes).
    5. We will be changing how PK rewards work; You will be able to obtain gear simply by PK'ing, with special events running to spice up what you can get, consistently, and randomly.
    6. We will be able to create an environment that allows us to provide you with more competition and activity throughout the whole day by giving more incentive to keep the nation's balanced.
    7. We might even dabble with seasons and seasonal tournaments now that the monthly ranking will actually be that, a monthly ranking, rather than a "who's bought their medals the latest" ranking.
    These updates won't come all at once, and some will come later than others, but we hope this will give you a clear view of where we want to take Apex, and we hope it gives you something to look forward to in 2019!
    For those unaware, what we've done is the following:
    1. Reduced everyone's national points by 90%
    2. Reduced everyone's donated national points by 90%
    3. Reduced the requirements for clans to advance grades
    4. Reduced the cost for capes (except for the new Castellan capes)
    5. Remove the medal merchants in Moradon, El Morad Castle, and Luferson Castle
    NOTE: Previously purchased medals will NOT be removed, you are free to keep them, or exchange them, as you wish.
    Sincerely,
    The Apex team

    Hey everyone,
    It's the holiday season again, and as such we've prepared a little something for you!
    You'll find that you're now getting snowballs for PvP kills (and assists) in Ronark Land.
    You can throw these snowballs at your friends (or enemies), but they are the only effective ammunition against the increasingly tough snowmen that spawn in Ronark Land bowl every now and again!
    Have you thrown your (snow)balls at these (snow)men?
    If you have, you'll be rewarded a Christmas Chest for doing so! 
    These chests contain a bunch of things - which we're sure you're all wanting to get your hands on! We won't spoil it just yet, but I'm sure the news will spread like wildfire as to what these chests contain once the first few have been opened
    After a few waves of the increasingly strong snowmen, the final boss can be attacked by any skill, so anyone can join in on the fun.
    We hope you guys will enjoy the 2018 Christmas event!

    Dear Apexians,
    First and foremost - congratulations are in order for everyone! We are breaking a record every day now as the server that's lasted the longest, and we couldn't have done it without our loyal community of Apexians. We are deeply humbled by the amount of support you guys have shown us through the years, despite some of the bad decisions made by us.
    So, congratulations, and thank you to everyone that's ever set foot in this place during the past 3 years!
    As this is cause for celebration, from now until January 11th the following items will be on sale:
    - Switching Premium (1619 -> 1149)
    - VIP vault key (449 -> 299)
    - Name Change Scroll (799 -> 399)
    - Gender Change (349 -> 249)
    - Offline merchant (249 -> 169)
    Alongside this, the following items have been PERMANENTLY reduced in price:
    - 2000 HP scroll (59 -> 9)
    - 350 AC scroll (59 -> 9)
    - Scroll of Lion Strength (39 -> 9)
    - Scroll of teleport friend (35 -> 9)
    As I'm sure everyone is aware, the holiday season is upon us, and fret not - Apex will be festive soon too, as we'll be releasing our Christmas Event tomorrow!
    Prepare yourselves for some great fun and even greater rewards - everyone can join in on the fun; We promise!
    Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about the future for Apex. We have a big rejuvenation planned for the server - changing some of the fundamental mechanics for obtaining gear, addressing current pain points, making it easier for newcomers to join in on the fun (w/o increasing starter gear!), more alternatives with regards to progression, and more things to do.
    In preparation for this rejuvenation, we'll be performing a pretty big change on January 1 2019. We'll be reducing everyone's national points by over 90% (specific amount is TBD), and outright remove the current national point event. On top of this, we'll be resetting everyone's Monthly National Points, remove the medal merchants, and give clan funds the same treatment. After this has been performed, the national point event will no longer be ran continuously (it can be an ACTUAL event again, yay!). So, to compensate for the reduced influx of National Points, we'll also be lowering the requirements for clans to advance grades and tweak certain cape prices.
    These changes will be complemented by the additional changes coming later in the first quarter of 2019, with the long anticipated PK expansion!
    We wish everyone a great end of the year, and a happy 2019!
    And for those who celebrate Christmas, we also wish you a Merry Christmas!

    P.S. Our staff will also be enjoying the holiday season with their loved ones, and thus it may take longer to tend to your PMs / support requests

    Changelog
    Rebalanced Ultima and Felankor:
    - HP reduced
    - AC reduced and Magic Damage reduction increased; This results in mages and non-mages now dealing comparable damage. War commanders will now only be able to be commanders for the nation they were with when the war started.  Warriors' and Kurians' AoE skills are no longer reduced in damage depending on how far from their target they hit (this change may or may not stay, subject to evaluation) Items that sell in your selling merchant and put you over 21GB will now have the remainder which you cannot hold at that moment mailed to you, so that you can claim it after loading off some cash.

    The time we're looking at is 14:00 Amsterdam time (16:00 Turkey, 21:00 China, 23:00 Australia, 09:00 Peru, 12:00 Brazil).
    We're hopeful for a greater turnout than usual (and our analysis of you guys' playing behavior seems to indicate we'll be able to do just that!), so please make a reminder to yourselves - time for Castle Siege War on December 2nd is earlier than usual.
    We can't wait to see the amazing action that'll unfold.
    NOTE: Today's Castle Siege War will still be ran at the old timings

    Aesteris got a reaction from red123 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.

    I like the idea, and have actually recently pondered upon this.
    We'll have to add support for switching the map behind the scenes, get the NPCs in there (if they aren't already), tune them for level 83 characters (Ardream guard towers won't make a dent in y'all), but other than that, I think it could definitely be attractive and something new to be enjoyed by all in moderation.
