23rd Aug 2019 archive patchnote

It has been brought to our attention that people are selling Pet Deeds with pets that have 200/200/200 stats. 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 the standard stats. Pet caching has also been disabled due to this.

  • Vendors will now buy back anything they sell, with a 20% restocking fee (that's 80% of the purchase price). Whatever you're selling must be able to actually be redeeded!
    - It turns out houses sell for an enormous amount of very heavy gold pieces, so in order for you to not be stranded huffing and puffing after a sale, sales to a vendor over 15K will now go straight to your bank box.


22nd Aug 2019 archive patchnote

Some of these have been in for a little while.
- Travel Markers were mistakenly removed a while ago and have now been readded, and this time all mage NPCs have one for every town.
- Full spellbooks and runebooks are no longer available from event token vendors and Vela in Wind; this was forcing scribes to raise their begging skill.
- The portal to the shipwreck in East Valusia from Buccaneer's Den has been closed, matey! If ye wants to get onto the ship, ye will have to climb aboard the plank, ye scurvy dog!


22nd Aug 2019 archive patchnote

  • We are temporarily disabling the town containers from spawning items while we continue to isolate the issue with players getting items stuck in their inventory from these boxes
    - We have included an auto-fix for any items currently stuck in players' backpacks that will fix the items the next time you log in or switch server-regions

In preparation for the upcoming PVE/PVP tamer pet changes:

15th Aug 2019 archive patchnote

After the next server reboot, we will be running some detailed information capture procedures in order to try and pinpoint the cause of the lag over time and other current performance issues.

These procedures will be very intensive on in-game experience and may cause you to lag out or even kick you off the server entirely. We ask for your patience, as it is critical this information is gathered while the server is under load with a player population active. We will give you advance warning when this is going to occur.

The first of these will be run at 4am UTC/12am EST tomorrow (approx. 5 hours from the writing of this message.)

  • We have created the Magincia Faction Stone, and for the time being we have moved Faction Wars to Magincia.
    - Order/Chaos/Balance Factions fight over control of Towns. By standing near these Control Point Stones as Faction Teams (2+), Faction Players will be called upon to defend the Stone from Capture. Faction Leaders spawn near each stone.

  • Britain: The first skill trainer has gained an appreciation for the arts and moved near Britain's stage
    - Britain: A second skill trainer has arrived and can be found near the bulletin board in Britain, in line with most other cities
    - Upper Plains: Ogres in Giant Steppes are now found closer to the bonfires and are less spread out.
    - Magincia: There are now less elementals in Magincia mine, and enraged elementals will show to a much lesser degree near the entrance.
    - World: A lot more healers have been added to the world. This has actually been happening a lot for the past month or 2 because you can only run around as a ghost without knowing where a healer is in the middle of the wilderness for so long.
