Patch Notes March 8, 2017
Please note: Details are subject to change at any time.
Weekly Maintenance Time: 3pm-7pm PDT (~4 hours)

Changes.png

 

Card Reinformcent Update

We've redone aspects of the Card Reinforcement system plus have added two new items to the Kafra Shop you can use in the system.

 

 

The changes involve:

New Success Rates: Enjoy much better rates at trying to achieve higher refined cards!

Menu Option: You can either use a Menu option to reinforce your cards or go to a Card Master if you're nostalgic!

 

New additions include:

New UI Slot: This uses either Card Synthesis Stone or Card Lucky Powder. Card Synthesis Stone used will  be determined by the card's grade. Card Lucky Powder can replace any of the Synthesis Stones.

Cardfinium: Decreases the chance of failure and prevents reinforcement level from downgrading when failure occurs. This perfect metal has been adapted to be used to reinforce cards. This can be used in the Card Coating Paper slot.

Card Lucky Powder: Decreases the rate of reinforcement failure and has a chance to increase reinforcement level +2 to +3 when it succeeds. This shiny powder brings luck to everyone who uses it.

Lost Leprechaun: NPC Hunt

Event Period: March 8 - March 27, 2017

 

Oh no! Cheny's pet Leprechaun went out to grab more supplies and seems to have gotten lost! If you help us find him, you and all of your friends will win Cheny's favor... and maybe a pot of gold! Or prizes. Probably prizes. 

 

The Lost Leprechaun: NPC hunt is a scavenger hunt that will reward hunters with a personal prize as well as server-wide bonuses for finding all of the Leprechaun locations. What's the catch? Well... the clues will be very, very vague. You'll need to do a bit of exploring to find the NPCs each week.
 
Entries
 
Entries will be accepted from March 8 to March 27.
 
Entry Instructions
 
Each week, after regular maintenance, I will hide Leprechauns and post a clue. The clue will give you a vague idea of where they are, and will let you know how many Leprechauns are missing. 

 

To enter, post a screenshot of your character with the Leprechaun. Screenshot can be edited to just show you and the Leprechaun's location. Post your screenshot and the details below as a reply to this post.

 

In-game name:

Link to image: (please use Imgur or some other public image hosting site. No Facebook links.)

Map and location: 

Winners
 
We're all winners! Find all of the Leprechauns each week to win server-wide prizes. 

 

To qualify for item prizes, you must be logged in at least 1 hour during the week, and that time cannot be interrupted. So maintain a log in on one character for  at least an hour each week to qualify for these prizes.
 
Participation
 
If you are the first to find a Leprechaun and post it, you will earn 1x Cheny's Soul in addition to the server-wide bonus that is unlocked if all Leprechauns are found.
 
Rules
 
Entries must follow the entry format posted above. Image of the Leprechaun must be included. Post only 1 Leprechaun per reply. If you find more than one, make a new post. To keep the hunt fair, edited posts will not be eligible for prizes.

Across, but new items boost that and provide a stronger safety net.

Cardfinium: Decreases the chance of failure and prevents reinforcement level from downgrading when failure occurs. This perfect metal has been adapted to be used to reinforce cards. This can be used in the Card Coating Paper slot.

Card Lucky Powder: Decreases the rate of reinforcement failure and has a chance to increase reinforcement level +2 to +3 when it succeeds. This shiny powder brings luck to everyone who uses it.

wouldn't it be Card Blessing Powder?

 

anyway, jokes aside thanks for fulfilling my hope last night. 

Keep up the good work guys!!

WarpPortal has been preaching about abolishing 1HitKo in PvP for the past few months. Hence came the tedious process of nerfing the entire server with the amendment of Skills, PvP runes and forcing everyone to rebuild their characters. Most of us were patient to cope with the changes as it appears beneficial for the community to closer the gap between powerful and average players. We dont have any other choice anyway.

 

With this coming patch of card refinement system, It is apparent that what was done in the past has become lost. 1hitKO will make its way back to the arena with the increase stats provided by the new refine card system's Kafra Point items.

 

Was there a consideration that this new card refinement system will bring a step back to what was done in this last few months? Will WarpPortal then further and again nerf the stats given by the new system in the near future to prevent 1hitKo phenomenon?

Those card fusing items are cash items, aren't they? Or they drop? For me it links directly to economics.

5 serenia epic +10 =555 penetration,
cause +10 will give serenia additional +61 penetration, and base/normal penet stats is +50
and yea it will be hurt  so much if u put it on Sin who has Shadow claw (+250) and ymirr (+450 penet)
also i cant imagined if a rogue use it also, since they are the only class who can one hit nowaday.

WP, Seriously WP i have a few questions for you and if possible please respond to them.

 

1: you made us wait for months for "THIS" ? This card refinement needed several months to be developed? (i understand that you guys do not have to focus on this but   please)

 

2: I know this game is F2P but this is not F2P at the moment but mostly "Pay to win". Only the ones who spend real money in this game are able to get the new items in order to refine their cards properly. I find it completely awfully unfair and i hope it will change because you're making everyone disappointed about Ragnarok Online 2

 

3: As the third question i'ld like to know if it were possible to refrain from saying "it'll be up to "date"" because it is always delayed and i am not blaming you for this but saying "next week" forevermore is kind of annoying.

 

To whom it may concern, i did not mean to offend anyone but my comments are just "perhaps" the reflection of many players' one. Be sure that i am not here to blame you, i know that you're trying your best to make this game great again (i know you do not fail things on purpose).
