Short week for us due to the Veterans Day Holiday on the Auspicious 11/11/11. But we got fun stuff (and likely some controversial stuff for you)

  • Halloween Event : Ecto Exterminators Ends
  • Halloween Event : Queen of the Dead Ends
  • Halloween Spooky Machine : Ends
  • Sale of Halloween Spooky Pack/Crate ends
  • Sale of Witch's Pumpkin Hat : Ends
  • Sale of Gozarian Mask : Ends
  • HE Bubble Gum Sale starts up for 1 week 600pt for a box
  • Green Ale will be removed from Carts.
  • Green Ale will gain a cooldown time of 10 seconds for reuse. and weight increased to 25.
  • HE Bubble Gum and HE BM and BM X3 will gain a 1 minute cooldown (to prevent accidentally using too many)
  • Dracula will only resummon mob when 2 or less Bats remain. This is so people actually trying to kill Drac can kill off the mob to a fleeable point, mob HP remains supercharged.
  • Looking at the seals issue on Ymir, we may have to move some maps to get it working as intended, many maps may be shuffled around this maintenance to optimize.
  • New Turnins (we'll post which ones soon)
    70-95 Einbroch Mine
    - Teddy Bear
    - Waste Stove
    105-120 Juperos Center
    - Green Dimik
    - Blue Dimik
    - Orange Dimik
    - Red Dimik
    125 -140 Manuk Field
    - Centipede
    - Bradium Golem
  • Turnin for Green Ales, Go to the Spooky Machine and turnin
    5 Green Ales = 2 Ygg Seed
    5 Green Ales = 1 Yggdrasilberry
  • 2 VIP only quests
    Talk to the Chef in Eden Group
    Offers Quest to hunt 200 Drosera to get 6 Drocera Tentacle and a bit of EXP
    Also 200 Gazeti, to get 6 ice Piece and some EXP.
    These are 1 time a day quests for VIP, only 1 of them can be taken per day, we will add the other ingredients as time goes on.
  • Upgrader "Enriched Hammer" comes to town in the Eden Group.
    He uses Enriched Ore to attempt to safely upgrade +7 gear to +9. It still costs zeny (20,000) but he uses the "enhanced rates" rather than the normal rates like the HD upgrader does.
  • Double Drops this week for Veteran's Day celebration
  • Evil Marcher hat and Holy Marcher hat effects will match their descriptions
  • +9 Morroc Minion Doll will cast Critical wounds when attacking, in addition to casting it when attacked (as usual)
    Future plans is to have a combined use of both HD and Enriched but no z cost to do this same type of function. But this is an event so it is a bit less item intensive than the long term version will be.
  • Next Week
    Eden Merit Badge redemption becomes more expensive, Gramps will double his payout for VIP.
  • 2 = 10x "KVM Badge"
    2 = 10x "Bravery"
    2 = 10x "Valor"
    5 = 5x "Medium Life Potion"
    5 = 5x "Life Insurance"
    5 = 5x "Token Of Siegfried"
    7 = 1x "Job Battle Manual"
    8 = 1x "Reset Stone"


The reason for the Eden Merit Badge price update is I can't lower the payout below 1 (for math reasons) and I need a lower denominator to divide in, some MVPs would be dropping like 2-3 EBM worth of stuff but only cost 2 to resummon, creating inflation. We want to add more things into the Eden merit badge cycle but we need to be able to have the minimum EBM price lower a bit.

Green Ale Change: The reuse timer is likely going to happen with 14.1 anyway, so this is the most humane way I can think of to not make them account bound or change their healing rate. Just a warning though, next St Pats the Green Ales will degenerate as they "get stale" so in March/April they will be 50% heal, and every month after they go down 10% until they are 0% value when they will deleted. We will do a couple "green ale" seasons a year where they are refreshed. St pats hat will work best during those seasons.

This week there is an exchanger in place of the Spooky Machine that will eat your Green Ales and give you Ygg seeds and Ygg Berries. This is so you can "cash out" now.

Awesome move on the manual cooldown! Very much appreciated.

The eden badge part is a bit confusing. VIP members will get double badges for doing kill counts? Will MVPs also cost twice as many badges to summon now?

The Eden prices are surprising... and wait no lucky boxes? Thanks for making our pockets rest.


Also, is the Black Devil Mask now available for trade? ...

Thanks for bringing HE Gums back :mellow:

About the Merit Badge rates:
I would say actually "doubling" the Eden Merit Badge prices is enough... so that means

2 = 10x "KVM Badge"
2 = 10x "Bravery"
2 = 10x "Valor"
4 = 5x "Medium Life Potion"
4 = 5x "Life Insurance"
4 = 5x "Token Of Siegfried"
6 = 1x "Job Battle Manual"
8 = 1x "Reset Stone"

instead of

2 = 10x "KVM Badge"
2 = 10x "Bravery"
2 = 10x "Valor"
5 = 5x "Medium Life Potion"
5 = 5x "Life Insurance"
5 = 5x "Token Of Siegfried"
7 = 1x "Job Battle Manual"
8 = 1x "Reset Stone"

Please dont forget to put a NPC that deletes the quest (ALT+U) for "UPGRADE TIMER QUEST". Its annoying when alot of the old quest stacks up and cant be deleted since you forgot to put a NPC that deletes it from the list. Thank You!

Why are you guys changing the equipments Merry Badger accepts without informing us? I can't even trade in Hatii Claws [1] anymore (not listed in equipments anymore), despite her saying she still accepts them in her trade-in rates.

If you're going to change the prices of EMB related stuff, at least make sure everything related to EMB's is working properly first.

I see you dont really play the retarded game, each EmB have a value of 1M, the normal mvps still have those insane looooooooooooooooong respawn rates :mellow:
Can you ask before doing this kind of changes? its just the second most stupid thing i ever seen,

HEIMDAD, THIS KIND OF NOTICE NEEDS AT LEAST 1 WEEK TO BE IMPLEMENTED TO GIVE CHANCE TO SPEND THE EMB, SOME PEOPLE ITS NOT IN FORUMS EVERY TIME, THINK ABOUT IT............ :(

can you post a example of your perfect math? becouse i dont see wheres the logic, wich kind of mvp drops something that gives you 3 EMB???? you know misc items like rosata stone ask 3 pieces of then right? RIGHT?????????????????

can we have some sort of trade in for ales for anything else like 4 ales to 1 seed or w/e ratio so at least i can get a small fraction out of the crap you turned ales to?

or better yet can i trade like 1 ale for 1 slim that heals 3-4x the amount of what slims do now?

But that's the point .. MvPs drop items, items = EMB about 2-3, 2 EMB = Summon/ which is unlike before that MVPs are cheap to summon at a cost of 1EMB.
You have no rights for this one and so are we since Ragnarok now revolves on Summoning MvPs than hunting them. :mellow:

dear Heim,

It has been brought to my attention that you will be adding a delay on green ales. Let me tell you why this is a bad idea before you guys implement the balance patch.

First, A large number of AoE skills will become outpottable. Think Storm Blast, Dragon Breath, Overbrand, & Sorcs with hibrams(zero). This would make any proper castle defense nearly impossible to break, as any guild with a decent AoE killer would easily wipe a decent majority of any attacking force.

secondly, there is no other reliable source of hp that gives a decent amount of hp. Slim Potions don't heal anywhere near 10% of your hp, and should be buffed if you were to implement the delay.

lastly, It is -_-ing class warfare. Do not discriminate on classes with real HP mods(All classes but genetic/warlock). It would take us at least 3 seconds to pot up to full hp with slims.






j/k.












No seriously, buff slims so that they arent crap or don't add delay until balance patch.
