Here's where you can ask your questions for Tuesday's broadcast. 

 

If you haven't watched the show before, it airs at 3pm Pacific standard time on Tuesdays and I answer questions from the chat and from this thread. 

 

Here's last week's show and answers.

Hey Oda! same question from last week; the Valentine's quest is still buggy/engrishfied and does not award exp. can you check/fix it ahead of this maint?

 

Yes. The exp reward should be at the same time you get the headgear reward. 

cheers

Is kRO open to UI suggestions from other official servers or just their own (please be honest)?

 

Talking with Heim, this would be something they would actually consider if the proposal was extremely detailed. Whether or not they would be able to do it is another thing.

i have a question about the delay in game we players from other country (i'm from Philippines) experiencing, i mean not all but majority do experience the slight dealy like for 1 or 1.5 seconds. do i get that delay in game too in the new server for pRO migration?  :ho: 

 

It would help a lot if you could post a trace route connection report. There are instructions on how to create it here: http://forums.warppo...r-tracert-here/

 

the report gives us a better idea of what kind of problems may be happening between our connection and yours. If the problem is on our end we can send the report to our Internet Service Provider for a fix. 

and just wanted to ask is there a NPC in iRO Classic where i can get equipment rewards after i finish a quest? i mean like the Eden on renewal. i'm new in iRO Classic so i don't really know how to start with it and it gives me such a hard time leveling without any starting (basic) equipments  :ok:

 

We're working on slowly building up a Eden Group style quest chain on Classic that will give equipment for new players.

i thought you could get starter equips from the asgard village on classic.

 

Classic Jumping Janeway gives a class based weapon but no armor yet.

I would probably revisit the progress on the server merge restrictions and status of the merge.

 

I have posted an initial list of restricted items and we are waiting for pRO to complete and test the opt-in page, the current estimate they have given is no sooner than the end of the week.

MORE QUESTIONS! :D

 

  • Will all pRO characters from all servers have a chance to have their names changed if they have duplicates? I mean, there wouldn't be a base server which will retain the duplicate names? For example, if Valkyrie is to be the base server, then any character names from New Loki that has a duplicate in Valkyrie will have a prefix/suffix attached while those from Valkyrie will not.
  • All pRO characters will be flagged for name changes.
  • Will the Increase Weight Capacity skill of pRO players from Gym Membership Boxes disappear? If some pRO players still have Gym Membership Boxes in their inventory, should they use them now?
  • We have no plans to remove skills from players.
  • If some pieces of equipment won't be brought over, what about the cards that are compounded into them? (e.g. Angra RWC Cap 2010)
  • We can take prohibited cards out of items but sadly if the equipment is restricted the card would also be deleted.
  • Will people be able to opt-in BANNED accounts from pRO? (some might try, lol)
  • No, they will not be allowed.
  • Non-merge related but pRO-iRO related: Angelus in pRO seems to have a longer cooldown than iRO's. It's like the whole Angelus visual effect needs to end before I can cast another Angelus. In iRO, it's not. Which server has the correct settings for this?
  • It will be under our settings.

ODA: Is there a possibility you can get devs to add a "big chunks" option to Ei'felle NPC in Einbroch, that is to say, instead of 1-100 "sets of hope" where each set is 1 medal = 20,000 EXP (or whathaveyou), you'd instead do 1-100 "big" sets of hope, where each "set of hope" is 10 medals = 200,000 XP, so that you can basically do 1,000 Medals for every conversation with the NPC, instead of 100. Pretty necessary these days with the EXP required for lvl 175.

 

We should be able to put this in on March 4th.

For example, if Valkyrie is to be the base server, then any character names from New Loki that has a duplicate in Valkyrie will have a prefix/suffix attached while those from Valkyrie will not.

 

I would assume names would be handled like how Renewal Chaos merge was. All names from all servers that cause duplicates are changed to _server at the end and receive 1 free name change. They are free to change their name back if someone else didn't claim it already or choose a new name.

I think we've ironed out what the scripting should be for these and will be resuming this soon, perhaps on the 11th.

Is it possible to somehow move the Magic Monsters from Splendide Field 02 and others that are connected to 3rd class job changes to special maps which can only be accessed via entering of NPC chats? I know it will be hard but the monsters have huge amounts of HP, drop next to nothing and give no exp. Naga is aggro so if I'm doing a Pinguicula bounty, I either kill it first or run away from it. And with the amount of mobs I've killed I'm expecting my bow to soon be imbued with WL skillez.

 

It's not likely that we would be able to change this.

oda, mora boards are still messed up.  it will still reward base and job exp even if you are selecting all base (and i assume, all job).  i ended up losing out on 42 mil base exp as a result of this....please take a look at it again.

What are the conditions to get an inactive guild disbanded so you can reuse a name? 

 

For example there is a guild name I want, but noone has been online in ~34 weeks according to ROPD.

 

TLDR: I want to take guild names that are being taken by inactive people. How long do you gotta wait before they are up for grabs?

 

Unfortunately at this time we do not have a provision to disband inactive guilds.

What will happen to our rogue and acolyte classes that do not have Gank and Teleport skills respectively? Will all characters have a free reset or will the skill designation still work much like how it is in pRO?

 

Background: It's only in pRO Chaos that those mentioned skills can have a skill point designation. Since the other servers like Valkyrie, New Loki, and New Iris are free to play, skill points cannot be designated to the said skills to prevent botting (at least, that was the intention back then).

 

The picture: In pRO F2P servers, in order to have warp portal, we have to allot extra skill points to unlock warp portal without having to actually put some skill points to have teleport.

 

The new server will be on iRO mechanics so we will likely be putting in a free skill/stat reset NPC so players can re-adjust.

Is it possible to get a status update on the Community Headgears project (Autumn Headband, Night Sparrow Hat, etc.)? Its been awhile, and the current state of Sakray isn't helpful. Its been way too long for the amount that need to be redone/tweaked/discussed.

 

We will be revisiting them in mid- March. With Sakray and our production team being needed to prep Hero's Trail 2 there won't be much time for us to look at the Community Headgears this month.

How on earth does teleport facilitate botting? Bots are tireless so they just walk wherever they want to go, since exp/h means nothing to them. Tele or fwing mobbing, or using them to cross hostile maps is what real players do :v

Currently the Temporal boots are not enchantment if slotted. Could you let me know when we will get the enchanted slot temporal boots?

 

Is there a kRO update it's tied to? 

 

Any ETA on the enchant red twin edge sword?

 

Nothing yet.

Just a few ideas:

 

1. Kitcoins - would it be beneficial to allow trades for safe certs?

2. Allow stat enchant costume headgears up to stat +3. This will open up a kitcoin market, apart from the existing malangdo and mora enchants

3. Allow prize medals to be used 1k at a time rather than just 100 - currently just too tedious
