Hello everyone,
 
Something occurred today during the patch notes that I want to address with the community. We posted a pending bug fix for the Spartacus Item

  • Spartacus gains "Nullify reduction in damage inflicted on enemies resulting from enemy's size."
  • Spartacus loses "Increases damage versus all sizes by 100%"

This caused some issues for users as we had previously stated that the item effects were currently intended.
 
We implement OCP gears as we receive them from the studio. From time to time gears have the effects changed due to balance or other concerns. When we receive the latest effect settings we will review to make sure what we have is up to date. To be clear eventually the update will have to happen but it will happen with a proper notice period. Any nerfs planned for OCP items will occur with at least 3 months notice in patch notes and an item description update indicating the approximate date of the pending change.

 

During this period if you have refined one of these items in order to take advantage of their effects. We will be willing to transfer the refine to the same weapon level/gear slot of your choice. (Example Level 3 weapons can only be transferred to Level 3 or Below Weapons, Upper Headgear to Upper Headgear, etc) Requests must be submitted before the changes take effect. This notice will ALSO be posted on the item description.

 

Please wait until 6/8 to submit any tickets so the GMs can be notified of the process.

 
Currently there are 6 items that need their effects reviewed/adjusted in the manner.

  • Spartacus (See above)
  • Valkyrie Drop (Loses 50% FCT Reduction. Gains Skill Targeted FCT Reduction)
  • Devil's Hand (Loses 50% FCT Reduction. Gains Skill Targeted FCT Reduction)
  • Cylinder Hairband (Refine Level Required Increased to +8, was +7)
  • Red Lotus Stole (Refine Level Required Increased to +10, was +7 +9)
  • Phreeroni Wing (Loses + Hit, gains + Perfect Hit)

Currently the date set for these changes is: October 11th, 2018
 
Please understand that this process also includes resolving the reports of bugs and missing effects regarding many other OCP items. During the coming weeks you will be seeing many items adjusted to their net benefit of their owners, as we work with the studio to make sure we have the latest effects..
 
Items on our hit list for reviews are.

  • Hero's Cape
  • Assassin's Muffler
  • Hunting Knife
  • Valkyrie Knife
  • Enforcer Cape
  • Magician's Gloves
  • Celine's Brooch
  • Maero Mask
  • Egir Ring
  • Giant Protection
  • Blacksmith Gloves
  • Excelion Shield
  • Enforcer Shoes
  • Perverse Demon Mask

 

 
 
Further update. For users who have a Cylinder Hairband or Red Lotus Stole. Since the change on these items is a single refine level difference. Any user that currently has one of these items refined may write in to get the refine level increased by 1. Example +7 -> +8. Please note that this can only be done ONCE per item and the GMs will be recording if an item has already received its bonus refine level. So do not purchase an item expecting that it can receive a free refine as it may have already received it. Items that are restored by the GMs for any reason cannot receive a bonus level as well. Please note that ANY item that has received a free refine will not be eligible to transfer its refine level to another item.
 
The upper limit on these refine levels is +12 for either item. The GMs will not boost it beyond that point.

Yeah, but what about the fact that some people wouldn't have spent/wasted their money on a spartacus at all if they weren't given the "staff said it is doing it's intended effect" =\

The other items atleast haven't had staff come in and say the un-intended effects are "intended"

We can only tell you what information we have available at the time. With the Spartacus we were given the effect that we implemented. We checked with the studio and it matched what they had listed for the item. It was only in very late May that we received the latest effects for many of the OCP items.

Except in cases like the Valkyrie Drop, and Devil's Hand the effects match exactly what we were given and the studio had for the item.


categorize every item which item needs to be nerfed and which items need to be bugged buffed

We did. The second list should be buffs to item effects.

Please review all of the effects thoroughly for future OCP release so people can know if they should or should not spend money on the boxes. Thanks.

I'm skeptical about buying OCP items in the future with this scenario that'll happen with them after several months :/ too much adjustment to make just because of implementing bugged/unintended effects of OCP gears is quite troublesome.

The Cylinder Hairband change makes no sense at this point and honestly just feels like a cash grab.

Most likely. We still have to review them to make sure there is a real change. Or if it was flagged incorrectly as needing an update.

In the case of Spartacus it also costs a lot to make it +10 also costing more KP for the ores =\

If you're buffing items, I don't think there's a reason to give a 3 month notice for that. Just keep the notice for nerfs, buff as per usual whenever you are able. Also I do like the direction so far

I feel the same way. Release an OCP item with advertised effects, nerf said OCP items so that people will buy new OCP items = profit. This strategy will surely backfire.

I am not blaming WP for this, I am blaming the source if what is really the final and fixed effect of items. I am lauding the efforts of WP staff, but we are just gamers who want to enjoy the game in a justified and balanced manner.

The 200 hit at +10 will be removed later?

Before implementing ocp gears to the server, you should also indicate which items will receive buff/nerf in the future, because this will affect our decision and plans about buying those stuff in order not to waste in game resources.
