4th Job Updates and More!
|Date||Jun 16, 2012||Views||3418|
|Hello Asda 2!
As many of you know, we are currently working on some large updates for the game. Originally, these updates were intended to come on 6/12, but were pushed back to 6/19 due to the size of the update. However, with testing still in progress, we have determined that the update must be delayed again. We apologize for the delay!
Until we have further tested, no release date will be provided. However, we will still be holding maintenance on 6/19 AND 6/26 to implement bug fixes, events, and any updates that have completed testing.
We know delays are always disappointing...but we're not going to leave you hanging! Here's a little preview of updates in the works for the near future! Some pictures will be added Monday as well (because apparently, once again, I've forgotten them in my folder at the office T-T)!
Anyway, check out a description of the upcoming updates! Keep in mind, these are not all guaranteed to come at once,, but it's all things to look forward to!
Lv75 & New Maps!
Players will soon be able to advance to level 75 in 3 new maps! New general quests will be available for these new areas, and 30 new repeatable quests accessible in Aquaton will help you along the way to Lv75!
To the east of Neptillian Node lie lush rolling hills bordered by a desolate wetland even further east. Desolate Swamp contains monsters from Lv70~73, and is home to the start of the 4th Job quests.
Further east from Desolate Swamp is the ruined city of Inferion, home of spirits and wandering monsters up to Lv74. Watch out for the Posessed Plants!
Castle of Chaos
The Grim Reaper has been brainwashing monsters and warriors alike! Fight off Warriors, Soldiers, Wizards, human-sized buglies and more in this new Lv75 dungeon! Summon the evil Grim Reaper
Upon reaching Lv70, players will be able to undertake a three-part quests to kill various monsters in Desolate Swamp and Inferion. After competion of the quests you will become 4th job, unlocking access to a new set of skills. All classes will be able to gain skills to increase casting speed and movement speed if they desire.
New Item Encyclopedia!
Ever wondered where you could get a specific item? Is it dropped by a monster or from a shop? Can you dig or fish for it?
The new encyclopedia will be more detailed than ever, with the ability to look items up by monster, item type, crafting recipe, set items, and fishing locations. You can filter by item category (Weapon, Armor, Accessory, General), subcategory (weapon type, armor type, booster, package, etc.), the way you acquire the item, job, rarity, and level.
On the right in the item list, icons will light up depending on how you can acquire the item. If the item is dropped by a monster, the Drop icon will be lit up. If the item has multiple methods to aquire it, all relevant icons will be lit up.
You can roll over the icon with your mouse for further information, such as what monsters drop the item, what materials are needed to craft it, what shop you can find it in (and price), what fishing location you can fish it up, what map you can dig it up in, and what quest (and level) it is available from. If there is too much information (i.e. too many monsters drop the item), you can click the icon to see the full list.
Booster & Package Preview
You can check the contents of boosters and packages by clicking the View button.
In the case packages containing equipment, vehicles, and avatars, you can click the items in the package window to preview them on your character. You can even move around to see vehicles in action (of course, without the speed bonus)!
If you are looking for something specific, but don't know how to find it, you can run a search at the top by typing in monster name, item name, etc. The search is case sensitive.
• Under Monster, you can search the monster's name. If you search part of a monster's name, such as simply "Parasol", a drop down menu appears above the list of items where you can see each parasol monster.
• Under Item, you can search by item's name. If you search "D-Rank" it will display all items with the word D-Rank in the name.
• Under Crafting, you can search by recipe name. A drop down will appear above the list with any recipes containing the search term.
• Under Set Items, you can search by the set name. At drop down will appear above the list with any sets containing the search term.
• Under Fishing, unfortunately text search is not very helpful at this time. You can search only by map name. However, if you go back under Item search, you can, for example, type in Cod and get results that way.
Rare Item High Rank Enchanting!
High Rank Enchanting has been available for hero items for quite some time. This is the method of adding another stat to a piece of equipment by using special materials. The system will soon be available for rare items as well! More details to come soon, as we haven't had the chance to test it yet!
Sowel/Rune Removal Item!
Have a great sowel or rune, but it's stuck in a piece of equipment or an avatar you no longer want to use? With the use of a new premium item, players will be able to remove sowels from equipment, and runes from avatars, in order to use them again. When re-using runes, the value will be randomized again when applying it. You will only be able to remove option sowels, and cannot remove main sowels (defense and attack).
Pet & Guild Name Change Items!
You will now be able to change the name of your guild without disbanding and recreating it! Also, previously you were only able to change your pet's name one time from the default name. With the new pet name change item, you will be able to rename it as many times as you like!
Due to the upcoming availability of these items, we will no longer provide guild name changes or pet name changes unless the pet's name is proven as bugged.
View Your Craft List!
No longer will you have to remember or write down what materials you need to gather to craft something! Open up your inventory and click the Crafting List button at the bottom to see the all the recipes you have learned! You can also open it from the Extra Menu, or drag it to a hot key.
Additional Teleport Locations!
You will now be able to teleport to Aquaton from any town! Additionally, from Flammio you will be able to access Scorched Forest and Flabis, and from Aquaton you can access Desolate Swamp. Hooray, convenience!
Avatar Display Option
Want to benefit from your full avatar set, but don't want to display it? You will now be able to turn on and off the display of each main avatar piece as well as your helmet with the simple click of a checkbox! Keep in mind, if your helmet is turned off, the avatar helmet will also not display.
Auto Attack Option
You will now be able to turn on or off auto-attacking after using skills. Usually, when you use a skill you will automatically start attacking with normal attacks (except in the case of mages). You can now turn this off so that when you use skills you will not attack after until you start attacking manually.
Running out of avatar space? No more! A new avatar storage will soon be available, granting 30 slots for avatar items by default. Like the regular warehouse, you will be able to purchase up to 8 expansions your avatar warehouse! This will leave room for 54 full avatar sets, or a mix of sets and accessories adding up to 270 items!
Unfortunately, due to some issues this feature has been further postponed.
