  • An issue was resolved with Archery continuing to shoot while players are moving
    - An issue was resolved allowing players to rapidly shoot bows by quickly unequipping and reequipping bows

    (This was meant to be posted sooner, but did not get published erroneously.)

The stablemasters have started to slowly restock their inventory.

Due to a union-related issue, Stable Masters are not able to sell any animals at this time. We hope the result of their strike is that they are remunerated fairly and equitably, and they can return to providing a service that we all appreciate very much in the near future.

The temporary 10% bonus to skills has now been concluded and the gain chance will be restored to normal soon.

The patch posted in #test-center-patch-notes has been delayed for some time. The changes will remain on our Test Center for further testing. Thanks for your patience and helping with testing. :)

Service has been restored.

A quick note regarding the skill bonus that we have enabled post rollback - it is a 10% bonus on the base gain, so you won't see it reflected in skillgaindebug. The increase is already applied to the first percentage shown.

Further to our previous announcement, we have found the root cause for the data loss issue and implemented a hotfix. We expect to restore service shortly after this announcement.

Unfortunately, in order to address the issue, we need to perform a rollback. This is necessary in order to ensure data...

We have identified the data loss issue and expect to restore service shortly. Unfortunately, in order to address the issue, we need to perform a rollback. This is necessary in order to ensure data integrity moving forward, as ideally we want to maintain our 'no wipe' stance at all costs. We have...

Due to a potential data loss situation, the server is being taken offline. There is no ETA for restoration of services at this time. Thank you for your patience.

It appears that during one of the patches in the last 12 hours it caused vendors to give things out for free due to them thinking they were on the Test Center. Due to this, we're forced to rollback to an earlier save point. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. We're awaiting the completion of the...

Please know that this is an exploit people have been abusing by casting Bless onto their pets and then deeding the pet. Do not buy these deeds as the pets will be auto-corrected soon back to...
