Patch Notes 4/23

*Subject to change anytime

Additional Bug Fixes:

  1. Issue: WoE placing siege engine near orb causes orb to not be clickable.
    Solution: Can't put engine near orb.
  2. issue: Colosseum seemingly dead people, though they were recently ressed, are able to move and attack.
    Solution: if Ressed they will be standing up and not landshark around.
  3. Hunter Statue Buff: giving 10% stat increase instead of 15% drop rate increase
     

WoE Recalling Bug: Urgent recall could bring guild mates to a location the guild leader "was" rather than where they are on the guild map by not accepting the recall immediately.  We are working on a solution that won't allow the time delay of guild members on the recall (ie no recalling onto the emp right after emp breaks thus bypassing gates, while also not allowing the guild leader to reposition after recall to get a more advantageous non interruptible recall.  While this solution is being worked on and tested emergency recall will be disabled. 
This was enough of an issue this past week to warrant the temporary removal of Recall.

              -Broken Piece ANNI

          ii. Broken Pieces can be traded in for items at the Kafra Service

              kafratradein.jpg

 

Phantom Stones from Angelica cost 1 Anniversary Coin but at the Kafra, the same Phantom Stone costs 8 Anniversary Coins.

 

Broken Piece ANNI is pulling double duty as itself and what is supposed to be the Broken Y piece.  We have to collect twice as many ANNI pieces because we have to trade that piece in not only for the A-Coin, but to make the Broken R_ARY piece as well.

what do u mean by selective option removed from fusion??

 

People could choose what costume they want when they fuse if they did not want to use the random option. They are taking away that option. Fusion will be 100% RNG. -_-...

That's if you want to keep the appearance (and add slots). That doesn't have anything to do with the selection fusion.

She probably meant when u try to fuse 2 costumes with costume tablet, it gives u an option to randomize it or pick a costume that is available on the list when u uncheck the random option.

You're cutting warrior crit chance by 66% and sorc crit chance by 50%.  Any DPS warrior relies on Battle tactics, which is only effective if you crit, and any sorc who wants to alternate dps and healing relies on their high crit rate to stand a chance at healing without using earth emblem.  Meditation is a sorc skill to increase critical heal, but again you have to CRIT! 

 

For the love of the flying spaghetti monster, PLEASE tell me you are changing the entire critical calculation formula and not just the base value to nerf any crit based class!
