Aloha folks and welcome to the second week of December! Here at the Warpportal office we’re hard at work at getting the gigantic level 175/60 update prepped for Renewal server. This is the first level cap increase since characters were able to level past 99, and with it comes unique skills for your third job characters.

For the best stuff this week, be sure to let me know in the comments of the thread version of this post what things from THIS week you’d like to see get a shout out in next week’s post.

THREAD OF THE WEEK

With the big update coming this week, many players are already looking forward to what’s coming next! One of the best threads on the forums is Jaye’s What to Look Forward to thread, which lays out what updates we’ve gotten and what updates we’re still missing. One of the things that players have expressed a lot of interest in is the update which increases the vend limit past it’s current 99,990,000z cap. Magmag starts a discussion about it here.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
We have a winter/holiday themed art event going on in the forums, with some great loading screens already posted. If you’re a creative type, please make sure to participate!

christmas_in_ragnarok_by_gramotoons-d88qgg3

If you missed last week’s stream due to twitch being, well, twitchy, you can watch all of our previously livestreamed content at our youtube page. In fact, we’d really appreciate if you give it a subscribe and like while you’re there!

I hope there are the October box is leaving, Boxter is going to finally be updated, & the Trans Scrolls, & +20 Stat Food Packs, will be added back.

 

When is the Spotlight going to change & to what?

 

Next week is more likely. Have not decided yet, though new world is likely. 

 

Can you please add descriptions of the different enchants listed?

 

Yes. 

 

How long before the new costumes will be able to be enchanted? The ones that can't be yet like the Bat, Devoted Eyes, etc...
 

Not long, it was a project to update this before the new update materials came up as the highest priority for the last few weeks. 

 

 

Additional unique skills unlock for third classes as well as a new skill [Full Throttle] that can be learned by all 3rd classes.

 

I hope you guys are planning to add a free skill/stat reset due to the above.

 

Yes

is it possible not to implement the patch (or reverse it) that changes the Kagerou Skill Pure Soul to not deactivate when you receive damage... this would be VERY detrimental to the class as a whole since even with the new level updates Kagerou/oboro have a VERY tiny HP pool... we need this skills for survivability in mobby areas... every other class is getting buff while expandeds keep getting kicked in the teeth... this patch will essentially kill the class... unlike kRO we have some very dedicated players of expanded classes...

 

We're asking kRO for clarification on several unannounced class changes that came with the recent update but we have to put it in at this time so we can request fixes.

I'm sorry, facekiller. I know you like (main?) ninja types, and I agree the pure soul nerf really sucks. But, I really want us to stop uber-customizing iRO, and would like to see our game more closely reflect what is on kRO. It makes it easier for us to anticipate how the game play will change with updates and such. We don't have a crystal ball, and we've already made mistakes in customizing things, only to have kRO bring something over that made our customizations unnecessary and destructive to our own local work ethic and game flow. Let's just be happy with what we have and stop  begging for things we want changed -- just for our own self interest-- each week.

 

Instead captialize on opportunities we've been given, like the headgear proposals and stuff like that. Perhaps change can be enacted in an orthodox way instead of by means of complaint.

Would it be possible to convince kRO to update the official servers more regularly and quickly? The whole at-least-6-months-behind-kRO is not really working out for RO as a whole since it encourages players to flock to pservers because they're updated WAY quicker than official servers.

 

Every community report I have sent has stated that the #1 concern of the RO community is how far behind we are for updates. We're trying very hard this year to narrow the gap, and get the missing content added.

Probably a question for the maint thread but not sure if you'll see it there. Will there be a spotlight change or are all hands (too) busy with the level update?

 

Will not be possible for this week.

i ONLY play my kagerou... and ninja classes have crap for gears compared to all the main classes... it will kill the class completely if they did this... imagine if wanderers skills got cancelled the first time they got hit... its essentially the same thing... the big difference is that while pure soul is active you cant walk... when you only get 17k hp and still need to level in areas 3rd classes need to level in it would be near impossible to do so... sure they have Cicada skin shed but then you end up bouncing all over and still end up dying... this was a terrible decision made by kRO and iRO has the chance to correct that mistake... theyve already added custom changes to other skills so why not this one? its alot more needed than changing things like Dragons Breath... its a unneeded change and its detrimental to the health of our server...

I'm pretty sure Gravity's justification is pure soul was meant as your character meditating between battles to rest and recover --- not a tanking skill.

we have to carry a ton of consumables as is... charms, orbs, kunai, exploding kunai and all our gears... that most of the time already puts you at or over the weight limit add in carrying non class specific consumables like converters and pots and youll be reaching close to the 90% mark... thats WITH the heavy lifter box and 100str... id rather keep the 160/50 level limit on kagerou and keep pure soul as is than get a 175/60 limit and a major skill nerf...

Oda, can you put Nightmare Baphomet to GH challenge dungeon. and why none of the monster in GH challenge dungeon uses skills? my trapper needs more challenge, all those auto-attacking wandering man and cursed book is boring.

Please don't say stuff like "unlike kRO". Who are you to say there isn't dedicated kagerou oboro player in kRO? kRO ninja forum is way more active than our expanded class forum. and a lot of people sent in ticket to fix problem. Only few including yourself are aware of problem. Soloing MVP doesn't prove that you're dedicated or anything. There is handful(a lot actually) of people who tickets problem in kRO just like you do. Don't say bs like that and think a bit more before you write something like that. As both kRO(not active as before) and iRO player, that's something i can't stand to hear. 

 

Reason behind Pure Soul's change is because of skill description. Just like before, it wasn't intended. Which is stupid I know. But fixes and patches that will follow up on future kagerou will be with that pure soul fix in mind. I do not agree with you at all on not changing them.

Oda, I sent you proposal earlier about RO calender and stuff. I was wondering if you have any progress on that matter?

 

Is there any chance that you guys could delay the 175 expansion to q2 so we can have some update ready for us to go with?

 

Can you also verify our scheduled patches and updates by quarters? And can you investigate with kRO team which patches from their updates are we getting? I can provide you with a date if you need them.

fine whatever... JUST LIKE kRO then... better? seriously tho.. im saying NO to the 175/60 level cap for kagerou/oboro... cuz that isnt in line with kRO... leave them at 160/50... they arnt meant to go to 175/60... they are a "for fun" class only and arnt meant to compete with 3rd classes... focus more on getting the new content, balances, skills, in and working properly instead of wasting your time on these classes...

If you really want to keep up with kRO's patches, Pure Soul should be implanted just like how it behaves in kRO. So you're contradicting yourself. And no its not better. You already did it and you still not changing your attitude.

For the end of the year it may be possible for us to do the instance as a temporary event.
