Hello everybody! Our maintenance for the first week of the year will be taking place from 9-1pm on the 2nd so I thought I'd take the time today to get a maintenance post together. 

 

Some projects that we are working on to be implemented within the next few weeks: 

 

Raffler NPC: takes zeny for a random chance at different items.

Adjustments to God Item creation quests

 

Projects we will be focusing on for early 2014: 

 

End game content: Being discussed in this thread.

Re-balancing less popular dungeons/fields 

Further Expanding repeatable monster kill EXP quests

Training Grounds

 

Follow up to the foundry:

 

Have you had the chance to run Flavius or the additional Tierra Gorge Battleground? How do you feel the increased rewards do for Flavius? How's the BG scene?

 

Seems like a shortage of empty bottles persists, currently looking at feedback in that thread. 

 

Maintenance notes: 

 

January 29

_Alchemist's list gets reset

_Section 9 developed hidechat and hidevend implemented. Press CTRL+F11 to hide vends on your screen, press SHIFT+F11 to hide chats onscreen. 

_Adding Wicked Nymph Pet food to pet groomer NPC in Prontera.

_Lava Golem repeatable exp quest added, speak to Jotun Tribesman at mag_dun01 (128, 79)

Available for players between level 70 and 90

  • Killing 50: 484800/290700 
  • Killing 100: 969600/581400
  • Killing 150: 1454400/872100

 

_Lunar New Year Nogg Road Quest added to Juno. Speak with the Donkey in Juno (157, 178). He will take live coal and burning hearts and will randomly give Red envelopes, Nightmare Terror tames, or Chewy Ricakes in addition to a bit of exp/jexp. The quest will be in for two weeks. 

 

Added the following headgear creation quests:

  • Fairy Flower[1] (Kunlun 149, 189)
  • Necktie (Lighthalzen Hotel Bar 276, 281)
  • Hair Brush (Comodo 236, 164)
  • Statue of Baby Angel [1] (Alberta 151, 78)
  • Frog Hat (Geffen Field 7 108 161)
  • Angry and Indifferent Solo Hat [1] (Alberta 120, 206)

 

Question: if we had a turn in event (not for exp reward) what kind of items would be an incentive to do some repeatable monster killing?

 

January 22

_Internal testing of Crow of Destiny Quest, may be able to implement this week

_Adding more NPCs to Classic Sakray to help with testing of BG expansion

_Badge cost for Rations has been reduced

  • Tasty Pink Ration (Atk +) 10 -> 5
  • Tasty White Ration (Matk +) 10 -> 5
  • Military Ration A (HP +) 5 -> 3
  • Military Ration B (Hit +)  10 -> 5
  • Military Ration C (Flee +) 10 -> 5

Glass Blower NPC being added to Louyang (227, 74) that will take 10 dry sand and give 10 empty bottles

 

January 15

_Seal Status Board will now display current seal power stance. Fixed an issue that prevented Sentinel from getting their god item. They will get to create their item as it did turn out to be a scripting issue.

_December Christmas quest  departs

_Lutie Spotlight ends

_Juno Spotlight Begins, monsters in the dungeons on this page will be receiving the spotlight bonuses.

_Raffler NPC leaves

 

We will be working on getting a sakray classic test going this week if all goes smoothly.

 

It's been in for a few weeks, but the Kafra NPC next to where you warp into the Battlegrounds Waiting room will restore your HP/SP for 5000z. 

 

January 8th 

_December Lucky Sox departing

_Adding additional repeatable exp quests

_1 second cooldown will be added to buying Raffler tickets

_Christmas time snow and music leaves 

_Doubling spawns of Deleters in Nogg Road map. 

_New Repeatable Exp Monster kill quest: Medusa Hunt  in Beach Dungeon (269 71)

For characters level 75-95. there are three sizes of quests, 50, 100 and 150 monster hunt goals. 

 

 

January 2nd 

 

_Monster exp and drops returning to normal after the double exp/1.5x drops event 

_Fixes for god item creation quest 

_Sealed Shrine instance gets added to classic for testing

_There is a new NPC at Nogg Road (mag_dun02 45 44) that will give a kill quest for deleters. 

 

Raffler NPC arrives on classic for the first time! For two weeks the NPC will be in Prontera (113 246)

 

This NPC let's you exchange zeny for a chance at a high value item. Even if you don't win you receive a consolation prize.

 

The Raffler will announce when someone has won the Featured Item, and you can talk to the Raffler at any time to see what is being raffled. 

 

If someone wins the featured item, or if no bids are made/no one wins the item gets changed up for the next raffle. 

 

List of items being raffled: 

 

1x Old Card Album

1x Ancient Card Album

1x Sunglasses Slotting Coupon

Glove[1]

Aebecee's Raging Typhoon Armor[1]

Claytos Cracking Earth Armor [1]

Lucius's Fierce Armor of Volcano [1]

Saphien's Armor of Ocean[1]

Am I allowed to give an opinion on this or will I be forced to endure harassment both ingame and on the forums again?

I'm going to keep mentioning this idea:

 

Trade in castle drops (like armor) for bottles.

BG Flavius rewards are still low.

 

In order to win Tierra Gorge, you must accomplish the following:

Break a 100(?) HP supply box.

 

In order to win Flavius, you must do:

Kill a Sword and Bow Guardian

Destroy a 1000(?) HP crystal.

Repeat up to three times

 

The cost of a Flavius match is higher as is the time investment.  I think for Flavius to be worth it, it'd need to be worth more than double Tierra, as there is an inherit supply cost to complete Flavius.  Even farming Flavius is expensive, as the guardians aren't exactly weak.

 

And honestly, I don't think it's possible to give Flavius a fair badge award without the risk of making it too farmable.  All I can imagine would work:

1 match for a win, like Tierra, keep the reward at 20/10

Up the reward to 40/15 and keep it the same

Up the reward to 30/15 but add something in to ease along the match.  Maybe an NPC at each respective base that will provide a full HP/SP restore, or maybe let the Therapist in Battle give players some BG/WoE only pots that weigh 0 (unstorageable/untradeable/not dropable/not vendable/not mailable), in a restock fashion.  Like you talk to her and she'll stock you up to 70 BG Whites and Blues, to reduce the cost of the matches.  And make the Badge claim NPC (the one at the end of the match, not Eurendek) remove these pots.  That way, the only way to get away with free pots is to sacrifice your badges.  But every BG NPC should remove these.

Think carefully if you're going to do that and add it in a way that doesnt punish people for not playing while it's in (like AL3).

On January 2nd  an old lady might just get a update, or she could be stuck in a dream unable to move forward with unchangeable updates. No one knows if the grandma of boxes might be update, some say it's a myth but i still believe in a update for her @_@

What if the goal of Flavius was made to be essentially the same as Tierra? The stones would begin vulnerable and both sides start out with guardians to make it less easy to attack. That way you wouldn't necessarily *have* to kill the guardians, and it would be made more about the player vs player, rather than Player vs Guardian. Also just limit it to one win and the game is over. With all the downtime between games, a truly competitive match could last 3 rounds; or worse, expire the 30 minute timer. 

 

The good thing about Flavius is the non-random teams. It really caters to the idea of one organized team against another organized team. People can actually form parties and set up legitimately for a nice battle. Another thing to consider is activity cannibalism. Tierra seldom runs with more than enough players to start a match, so adding Flavius could end up causing a 50/50 split in overall event attendance. Maybe split BG days like WoE, M/W/F is Tierra, T/TR/Sun is Flavius and Saturday is both (possibly add a global announcement every 2 hours so people know?). Splitting the days could help build up anticipation and boost overall attendance for both, rather than splitting them. Think of how WoE works, a lot of players are off during the week anticipating WoE, then when it is finally a WoE day there is a huge boost in population. (just something to think about)

 

As Akin mentioned, BG offers some pretty nice foods, but they are a bit overpriced. It would be nice if you would be able to use one of them every game of Tierra (if you felt like it) at least. To be adequately supplied for a game you should be able to buy 20-30 Whites 15 Blues and maybe 1 food regardless of whether you win or lose.

 

Just my preliminary thoughts :)

If your doing this leave the drops in so that new players can npc empty bottle for some early zeny or sell to other players for cheap. I would make the price 500-800z so that players can still make some zeny.
