1) Festival of Fire - No valentine day fest this year at all?

2) Increase of the stack amount of some itemshop items - puri? Please say "puri"

3) Adjustments to lv45-lv65 quests XP - I wonder if it went up.

4) Weapon drop on elite mobs - wasn't that happening already? I recall them dropping

5) Quest Former Brother-In-Arms - huh. But that was fixed before. Has GF implemented ninja fix before the official fix? Oh, and what about Secret of a Deceit?

  1. The Flower Festival (the one you just had that ran through Feb 14th) is the Valentine's Festival.
    It has been every year since 2009.
  2. Transport-related items all have stack increases to 999.
    (Went to EU forum to check this ;))
  3. Level 45-55 quests in chapter 1-2 zones were adjusted in a previous patch with some XP/TP rewards being raised.
    I'm presuming this has happened again allowing people to level through these 'dry' spots a bit faster.
    (Maybe Inferiority can stop complaining about this now. :p)
  4. pass
  5. I have no knowledge of what this entailed.

SOOO excited for the increased quest xp!!!!

Level 45 quests start way back in DDC, this will be SO HELPFUL to the leveling process! And a lot of quests in Weeping Coast were missed with the last XP increase, so I'm hoping they went through and finished those. SL needed the increase badly as well as AV (AV hardly gets you half a level on double xp). And with the increased xp through LoM (because the last lvl 65 quest IS in LoM) this will prevent the xp deprevation you get from SJF through Limo. Limo didn't have near enough xp to get you from 60-62 like it was supposed to, and if you continued straight form that zone into LoM without starting at 62 you got stuck at the end of LoM as well.

VERY excited to see the changes!! Now if only they would go through the lvl 1-45 zones and fix those, that would breathe new life into the old zones again!!!!


-Oh and on a sidenote, I am beyond THRILLED that three dailies in howling mountains were fixed. Because lemme tell you, EVERYBODY does those, and having to collect 10 tusks, claws, and venoms instead of 5 was a real time-killer.

Receiving 30K on L61 toon gets me no where close where I supposed to be...

Not sure if expending COO/Xaviera on rest of world will do good for first time player, but it would help to get more XP and level that second class as well.

I wish that daily quests were all able to just be done once a day with no limit on how many you could do. Because that would provide a stable and consistent source of xp for your secondary and tertiary class, and would also provide you with a way to level if you wipe your second or third class after having done all the quests in the game.

That would make every zone take twice as long to get through and the xp deprivation would be non-existent.

I agree that increasing the xp rewards for 45-65 will make it so much easier for newer players. It will be funny/facepalm to have a new generation of players that ask: "Whats RT?"

An xp increase for quest for those levels will be helpful though, because plenty of players have brought forth the issue of the xp to level shortfall for levels 56-64. This will also help with leveling the second and third classes. And finally this should help increase the availablity of gear to help offset the increased demand for gear, as new level 77/77(ish) players should be able to solo/duo farm gcez(or at least dod) for mems, run the minigames for shells, and do the eoj event quest.

So once again a bunch of useless stuff supposedly fixed lol and main quest line still broken. Unbounding furniture ? really?? lolll

BTW as Rustyx said, those drops in Chrysalia were already there, don't say you fixed something that was never broken, makes you guys look worse, just saying.

And what Rustyx was referring to, was the fact that on valentines day we got 1 diamond costumes, but that must be broken, so we will wait till next year.

How many alts does GM or CM have to post on the forums? seeing new names doesn't mean we actually have new people.

Rustyx, no worries, they will fix Secret of Deceit if they ever get Chapter VI out like other servers have.

They still cannot reproduce the error we are experiencing, they will contact us if they need more info ;-)

BTW Rustyx did you see his response on # 5?? LMAO, just confirmed that person doesn't play ROM AT ALL and has no clue, sad, very sad.

BTW as Rustyx said, those drops in Chrysalia were already there, don't say you fixed something that was never broken, makes you guys look worse, just saying.


Usually big patches are both server and client side, and constitute a collection of smaller patches bundled into one. Between the client patches, they can make change to server, but rarely do.

Those items were not dropping at first, then started dropping without client patch. That means it was a server patch, and apparently applied earlier than official big patch. In other words, they look to be patching things as soon as they can, not waiting for the big client/server release. A good thing.

Quoted from "zid"

And what Rustyx was referring to, was the fact that on valentines day we got 1 diamond costumes, but that must be broken, so we will wait till next year.


Quoted from "GarySandstorm;590258"

Flower festival is the valentines festival.... where were you sleeping? unless you talking about something else.


Costumes was a sale, and we got costumes, although not 1 diamond ones. But, events were different as I recall. Little Angel/Little Devil in Varanas East/West, turning toons to frogs and princesses, broken hearts, etc. They do rotate events in and out of festivals, though; and there was some similarity in themes, yes.

Quoted

Rustyx, no worries, they will fix Secret of Deceit if they ever get Chapter VI out like other servers have.


I'll try it out, unless our EU people confirmed it was not patched. But, that Former Brother-in-Arms being patched earlier and only now patched officially tells me they are being fairly proactive in patching what they can as soon as they can. I am rather glad it was done

Quoted

BTW Rustyx did you see his response on # 5?? LMAO, just confirmed that person doesn't play ROM AT ALL and has no clue, sad, very sad.


#5 was about the server patches, and mentors have less knowledge about server patches than CMs/GMs do. There was nothing wrong with that response.

The exp increase should be nice, as 55-65 is the most difficult level range in the game seeing how there's not even close to enough exp to get through those zones without double exp going on. I hope it was actually a noticeable increase, and not just like "added 10k to Limo quests."

I thought the Little Angel/Devil and Frog/Princess things were from the Storytelling Festival, though I could be remembering wrong.
