Set effects will disappear on July 17, leaving them with no stats, however the Fusion system can give them value by allowing adding of more rune slots (up to 3)
Additional stats in Recruit, Tuxedo/Wedding Dress will be removed
E. The may special costumes will retain permanently those bonus stats, this was not the intended design, but due to oversight with the description it is necessary to maintain fairness to players who purchased them.
F. we need to carefully explain the fusion system fully, it is an enhancement for the costume system, that will allow easier acquiring of both the look you want and increasing rune slots from 0~1 up to 3 consistently. This gives much value to the less desirable costumes, and was meant to be what you do with costumes after the 1 month stat effect expires. We are instead doing 45 day stat effect, though you can only buy it for 30 days, afterwards, if you liked the appearance you can keep it and fuse it to get more rune slots, that when slotted out fully would end up being HIGHER than the monthly bonus stats gave. This was why the fusion system wasn't in May, since the monthly stats were in effect. We will be making a much more clear website presentation on how the different parts of the fusion system can make your costuming easier, consistent and cheaper.7. Khara Title
A. Founder title token item will require level 40 to redeem after maintenance. Stats will remain what they are in the game, if you redeemed before maintenance below level 40 you retain the bonus stats.
Founder title stats have been adjusted to be less overpowered: STR +5 AGI +5 WIS +2 VIT +8
Upon further investigation I have found some distressing news... We never meant to misrepresent the title nor the costumes. We honestly always intended these changes, and never should the title even been viewable before distribution, when I checked prior it wasn't showing up in the list. We never wanted the stats of the title to be a "bait" for participation, rather it was meant to be a something special for the thousands of players that took up that moderate challenge of getting to 30 in our opening month.
It was not meant to turn what a joyous distribution of these titles being into a community mess because information that wasn't meant to exist yet was shared unwittingly with you. But I do accept responsibility as it is our job to do the final check and make sure you are not unwittingly harmed, and to do right by you.
We will be keeping the stats on the Tux, Wedding dress and recruit outfit for now. And the next set will have the stats more clearly labeled to expire at specific time.
The Title will get upgraded a bit, but cannot be the 30 to all, that would wrap all the gameplay around that title invalidating any other title forever, and be unattainable for future players. I am requesting +12 to all with +16 to Vit for the FOunder title.
Still discussing with dev team to continue to improve the situation, this particular set of circumstances, especially the title, caught us flat footed because it was supposed to ever be known what the stats were and certainly shouldn't have displayed huge numbers like that. But it did, and now we are in fix it mode rather than sleep and prepare for a busy patch mode.
It is obvious that we couldn't just leave it like it was, unless we truly just didn't care, which we've put far to much of ourselves in this and spent to much time with the community and games in general to stop caring when we have some sort of option to fight for.
So please give us a little patience, let us try to stave off this change a bit and let us move forward positively.
And my last post before 30 minute nap shower and back to office.
Title item: will get a level restriction of 40. The title itself will keep stats you all saw in the window. So consume the title item NOW to avoid the lvl restriction.
The costumes, will remain as is permanently.
In the end we made a mistake in oversight weeks ago, and we are doing all we can now to make it right.
