The servers are currently offline for today's update. We expect to have the servers back online by 7PM EST.

 

The majority of today's update is related to this topic (so read it, before reading this):

Additional Instance Information

  • Frozenland is now an instance.
  • Instances can only be started/joined on Channel 2. In other words FL parties will now only be available on Channel 2.
  • Due to the possibility of frequency abuse of instances, we have lowered the drop rate of Eonic Weapons from the Frozen Chest in FL. No other monsters were changed.
  • If a player defeats the Instance in time, they will receive a bonus reward. For Frozenland, this reward is extra EXP, and a Aquamarine Gem.

 

What is an Aquamarine Gem?

Aquamarine gems are gems that can ONLY be found through instances. They can be used to upgrade the new types of items in the game.

 

What new items?

Earrings! We've added 4 different new earrings, each of which are level bracketed.

 

More on Earrings...

  • Earrings work differently than other equipment items, they can only provide 1 of 2 bonuses. Extra HP or Extra Mana.
  • Stats can be given to earrings by using a Magic or Sorcery Gem (but remember, each earring can only have ONE stat).
  • Earrings can ONLY be upgraded by using an Aquamarine Gem on the Earring.
  • Earrings can ONLY be upgraded once every 30 mins.
  • Earrings will give 1 HP or 1 MP point for every level they have on that specific stat.
  • The higher level earring you find/upgrade, the higher level of the Health & Mana Stat you can reach.
  • Earrings don't break if the upgrade fails! You simply lose the gem.
  • You can equip 2 earrings at once!

Changes & Fixes

  • We've change how AOE's work in the back-end... We believe they were the cause of the 1-2 minute lag spikes in intense PvP fights. The change shouldn't be noticeable (beyond there being reduced or no lag).
  • We've added more monsters to various low level areas to get ready for some incoming updates.
  • We've fixed a bug that prevented users from using special characters in their passwords while logging into the game.
  • We've added a WH NPC near the Zipped Gem NPC.
  • We've changed the error messages that show up when the server is being updated and when an account is banned so the error is clear in its meaning.
  • We've fixed a bug that allowed users to reforge G3 items using G1 or G2 items.
  • We've fixed a bug that bugged out your hotkeys if you pressed the Page Up or Page Down buttons on your keyboard.
  • We've changed the appearance of Soul Shards.

 

There's been a lot of changes on the backend to try and optimize various functionality that may have been causing issues in game. If anyone notices issues please report them.
