March 26th
-Spotlight dungeon will be expanded with more monster spawns and will be testing out a new MVP. 
-Currently in the midst of deliberations on changing contents for the guild supply box. It would not be changing this week, but we will be posting up a proposal for what we would/would not be changing this week. 
-St. Patrick's day hat will be gaining it's proper effects.
-Green Ales will give their full holiday time bonus
-Players with Black Treasure boxes and shreds of Evidence will be able to turn them in to O'Riley for a random consumable reward for the tail end of the St. Patrick's Day Quest
 
These include: 
 
4 Blue Potion
4 Panacea (Unripe ygg berry on Renewal)
4 Seed of Yggdrasil
5 Cooked Nine Tail's
4 Slim White Potion
1 Yggdrasilberry
2 Heavenly Fruit Juice
St Patrick's Hat (3% chance)
 
 
March 19th
-St. Patrick's day event expanded
-Veins/Rachel spotlight ends
-Alberta spotlight begins
-Whisper, Leaf Cat and Marionette pet food being added to the pet groomer
-Update! Special spotlight challenge dungeon being added to the last level of Byalan dungeon
This is our project to have a dungeon that changes with every spotlight. It is attached to the bottom of the dungeon being spotlit, and in it we have tougher versions of monsters that normally spawn there. 
 
You get there by speaking with the Challenge Dungeon Guard NPC outside of the Byalan Dungeon entrance (izlu2dun 109, 90)
This is our testing week, so there is no MVP, but the monsters that spawn there will be equivalent in stats to the tougher monsters in the game. So there will be extra tough monsters that look like Byalan dungeon monsters. They give appropriate exp for monsters of their level. At this time their drops are slight modifications on what their normal versions drop. They just drop more. 
 
Effect will be updated on the Four leaf clover in mouth currently found in the groove pack: 
+3 Luck
Enables use of level 1 discount 
Has a low chance to give players an orcish face temporarily when physically attacking. 
 
 
March 12th
 
-St. Patrick's Day event
-March Groove Pack
-Rachel/Veins Spotlight for one more week
-Pet food for Miyabi Doll and Loli Ruri will be added to Pet Groomer NPC
-Old Payon added to list of available PVP free for all maps
 
-KVM Testing, will be adding 3x3 fights with the bravery badge reward
Currently working on creating a "Champion Level" dungeon for our spotlight series. The intent is to have create a rotating series of dungeons that duplicate the map and sprites of spotlight monsters, while providing a rewarding challenge for high level players that would otherwise not have much to do during the spotlight. 
 
 
March 5th
VIP Exp and drops bonus increased to a full 2x for one week. 
-Rachel spotlight boost to monsters is being extended one week leave on the 19th. 
-Alberta (Sunken ship/Turtle Island) spotlight begins on the 12th
-We will be looking at the current numbers of items on the server from the guild supply boxes to look at possible adjustments. 
-Woe Blue Potions being enabled on PVP maps, still being evaluated for use elsewhere.

I would caution lowering any amount. Being a ble to help supply your guild is a wonderful feeling. Since these boxes have been added there have been a lot less bots.

I would simply...

-eplace Authoritative Badges with Panaceas (the waffle looking things)
-replace Heart of mermaid with Empty Bottles
-put in a NPC named "Donald Trump"

 

Mr. trump would do the following.

-exchange a set amount of chainmails and other useless castle drops for a guild surplus box
-exchange any 2 cards for a guild surplus box

The gsb IMHO is one of the best ideas you guys have done. Right or wrong, it has made it so guilds don't need to bot or benifit from botters to participate in woe. I would ask you guys to please keep this in mind. Improving the boxes would be great, but nerfs towards them could potentially bring major bot farms back.

In keeping with the iRO practice of mashing up familiar names without treading on legal infringement (I'm thinking of NPCs like SoloHan and Bachewcca), he should be named Tronald Dump.

im against the exchange 2 card for a guild surplus box, I think the fact that Gsurplus box are only obtainable in guild dungeon is a good thing since it doesn't get botted. Im also against the chain mail exchange or whatever. Just change directly the useless drops in castles for something exchangable.

I think the boxes need to be obtainable outside of GD, or we will never be able to encourage the start up of new guilds (as unlikely as it may be) the server needs ways for groups to get into WoE.

 

 

Also GD has been botted, you can all stop bringing that up. Or I can start naming and shaming some knights from payon and valk GD.

I would keep badges in there. But change cobwebs with panaceas and empty bottles should be able to buy from a npc like they use to be on valk server.

Interesting. I've only lived in Lunia. I was hoping that having GSB in GD would prevent this :(

Someone just told me that it might because it's a boost on flat VIP exp not just a random exp type boost, so i'm unsure to be exact!

Change our 2014biolabs back to the 2006-2007biolabs. And bring back all the players from that time so we have actual woe/gvg competition and not just some econ farming weekend warriors.

Lucky box is usually more expensive (in kp and in items offered) than a groove box. I think groove boxes also give an item + 1 random from the list where as lucky boxes are usually just something from the list.

 

Example

Lucky: http://playragnarok....ail.aspx?id=322

Groove: http://www.playragna...aspx?id=305&p=1

How does being in a GD prevent it from being botted?  Also it drops from the monsters NOT just the ones in GD.
