If you are viewing this in the Tiki Lounge section of the forums, this is the place to ask your questions for this week and for me to showcase the best stuff from the community last week.

Thread of the week:

In the "Spill your secrets" thread, players give their tips and tricks for quickly leveling, making potions and other semi-hidden things you can do in the game.

Current contests this week:

For the writers in our community we have Sapphic's Wanted Poster contest, where players create a "dead or alive" type poster for monsters in RO.

For those who are skilled with creating/editing sprites from the game we have Myzery's Pixel Art contest.

For the physical realm, Tatihana00 has a fun Holiday Card Contest, where you can mail or photograph your seasonal cards.

Arwork of the week: 
Tenmuki's always had some fantastic character artworks, with this image they have created a fantastic background as well! Check out her thread here.

For the content we put out this week, CM Maridah and I had a lot of fun dusting off the Dreamcast and playing some Skies of Arcadia.

1. Could you fix the Base EXP and Job EXP for the following monsters? The current rewards are incorrect. Here are the correct values as per your formula:

Wootan Fighter (Umbala 61-80 Board)
79763
89775

Dryad (Umbala 61-80 Board)
94163
105638

Stalactic Golem (Comodo 61-105 Board)
75938
85386

 

We can look at it and figure out what went wrong.

2. Stainer and Tarou from Prontera's Level 21 - 40 Board are both showing up as Tarou on quest logs. Can you fix this please?

 

Yes

3. The Hunt All option on Prontera's Level 41 - 60 Board isn't working. Could you see what's up with that?

 

Yes

4. Implement Lighthalzen boards for Lighthalzen spotlight?

 

Yes but maybe not this week
 

Lighthalzen
Level 81 - 100 Board
-Metaling
-Rafflesia
-Stem Worm
-Breeze
-Anopheles
Level 101 - 120 Board
-Kobold
-Kobold Archer
Level 121 - 140 Board
-Remover
-Wickbine Tres
-Errende Ebecee
-Laurell Weinder
-Armeyer Dinze
-Kavach Icarus
-Egnigem Cenia (normal)
Level 141 - 160 Board
-Eremes Guile
-Margaretha Sorin
-Cecil Damon
-Kathryne Keyron
-Howard Alt-Eisen
-Seyren Windsor
-Celia Alde
-Chen Lio
-Flamel Emure
-Gertie
-Randel Lawrence
-Alphoccio
-Trentini


And here's the proposed location for them:

Yes, the new boards and fixes should be going in this week.

Would it be possible to make both the blue and orange creative convention hats tradeable?

 

That would be so great, thanks :D

Can Prof. Oldman's dialogue from the Academy be fixed? He keeps repeating the library's location after every text bubble. Also the quest log for the "Dispensary Therapist" is never deleted when you speak to the Professor at the end. For now it seems like speaking to Captain Carroc deletes the quest log when he has nothing to do with the quest.

Could we please get a CAPTCHA for all new characters? I know euRO has it, and they are an official server. They have a much lower bot rate because of a simple human test for new characters. I think that it would help curb the bot problem on iRO. I know they have things like the moving Kafra options in Payon, but getting more anti-bot measures would help greatly. Thanks.

 

Captcha systems tend to be a very small speed bump for botters and have a high cost vs how effective they end up being. We agree that (other) anti-bot measures are a good idea and we have our Section 9 group working on various projects toward that end.

It doesn't even need to be that fancy, something just anything to separate the bots from real people.

That's the new pin system that's in kRO right now so it'll be more likely for us to get that than a captcha.

oda, could you consider my suggestion regarding single turn in option in TI?

I think it would be nice if we can
choose which TI quest we want to be
turned at 'Reward me' option rather
than turning ALL TI we have.
or make it two option, like bounty
boards one:
- Turn In single quest
- Turn In ALL quests.
because i love to stack TI from
previous weeks but at the same i
want to turn in current week's TI
without having to let go the past TI i
have been gathered.

have the 3rd job hats been fixed and released? The forum topic of those hats seem pretty dead so i don't know whats going on with them.

Also are the rings of those hats going to be released, I heard a rumor they weren't.

 

We need to free up time to revisit that project is definitely is on our to do list.

 for classic server when will have  KVM gear and new world update ?? 

guild start up pack ?

have you considered putting in certain hats that players have wanted for a long time buy directly though the kp shop ,

so we no longer have to suffer though random box events.  you have done this before on renewal with cat ear beret, immune shield, and other various gear if i can recall prices were modest around 200-500kp depending on the item.

here is a reference of those items being able to purchase single units without all the box clutter.

http://iro.ragnaroko...aspx?id=119&p=8

 

New world is not planned for Classic, since the amount of New World content available for the pre-renewal build we have is extremely small. For individual hat purchases, these can be considered. Post which ones you'd like to see!

Can you leave eat gear mimic on while you sort out eve natalia's list? While at it, may I suggest you change mimic to acept +10 gear too? so, from +7 to +10 :blowkiss:

Eat gear is meant to be an event npc. Currently we are revamping Eve Natalia

Edit; When are we getting nightmare scaraba dungeon? Or the update to the guild dungeon mobs (leib olmai, gullinbursti, am mut, skel general, gajomart, giant hornet, creamy fear, killer mantis, ancient worm, giant spider, caterpillar, zombie master and wraith dead) to their correct buffed stats? You guys should request things way overdue like those to kRO regularly, I get the feeling you ask for it once and forget all about it, I assume if you're not persistent we don't get updates.

 

We will bug them about this again. This quarter we have been working with our contacts to revamp communications so less gets lost over time. Holden has early this week already sent several requests for content/information to kRO.

unless you are making +10 slotted cotton shirts, odds are you will be able to easily sell that +10 gear to an actual player or trade to them for the certs you need...

 

destroying +10 items is such a waste.

Hi Oda,

Will you be reducing the HP of this week's high TI? When Ancient Tree and Phylla were put in the first few times their HP was reduced for balancing reasons.

Thanks!

 

Turn Ins change from week to week please watch the patch notes the day of maintenance to see what they become this week.

oda can we get this:

Increased drop rate on "Buwaya Soul Fragment", "Bangungot Soul Fragment" and "Bakunawa Soul Fragment".(Kro July 11th, 2012)

 

We can request their current drop rates and see how they compare. This may be tied with a different system change,

Classic WoE things: The average number of breaks on a castle during WoE 2.0 is about 2. This means castles are slowly creeping up high econ without being defended. Thoughts? Will you do something about this? Perhaps consider quarterly econ wipes/resets or increasing the loss per break?

Challenge dungeon: Wasn't it a great idea to give champs infinite guillotine fist? If you take the ygg seed drops away now, people will be ahead for months.

 

The Challenge Dungeon should be cycling away soon for a more holiday themed one.

Slotted mids: could we get the slotted mids coupons in obps to add value to mvping?

 

The free slotted mid coupons could be used for this we will think on this.

Program has been able to do pin codes for a few years the reason they have lower amounts of bot is because the staff tend to do sweeps a lot more often than iRO does. Also for ingame captchas you can literally program it to send the image to certain sites in china and for 1 cent they will solve it for you and send it back for your program to input.

 

Econ resets would be nice or perhaps change castles to lose 10~20 econ a break would likely also do.

 

Btw since you've been having fun with browedit do you guys plan to make a localized map for classic? Such as Amatsu, Luoyang, Kunlan, Moscovia.
