Server Changelog 2014

From TalonRO Wiki

December, 22nd, 2014

  • Skill Change: Poem of Bragi now includes damage output scaling proportional to the amount of maximum aftercast delay reduction that particular Bard/Clown's Bragi provides. This change is for PvM only and does not impact PvP/WoE.
    • This means that as aftercast delay decreases, the damage output of any single skill or attack will also decay.
    • This rate of decay is not quite as strong as the aftercast delay benefit, though, so for every level of Bragi, there is still a Damage per Second (DPS) benefit that is significantly good/helpful as long as the delay is still decreasing! However, it also means that actual damage output will continue to go down slightly as well when the Bragi effect would reduce a skill's delay lower than 0.3 seconds, the minimum skill reuse rate.
    • Additionally, Poem of Bragi overwrites item effects which reduce aftercast delay. This pertains only to items which specifically reduce aftercast delay, such as Sniping Suit, etc.
  • New Item: Pinguicula Card. Headgear card. Ninjas only. Nullifies the use of Ninja Stones when casting skills. Increases SP usage of all skills by 25%. Works in both PvM and in PvP/WoE.
  • New Item: Dark Pinguicula Card. Headgear card. Alchemists / Creators only. Nullifies the use of Bottle Grenades when casting the Demonstration skill (not to be confused with Acid Demonstration). Increases SP usage of Demonstration by 15 SP. Only works in PvM.
  • New Item: Added two new headgears to the Reward Guru: Gentleman Fez and Tarnished Lamp.
  • New Item: Added four new rental headgears: Scratching Cat, Leopard Earmuffs, Amistr Beret and Misty Brown Cat Ears.
  • Change: Old Payon and Gonryun rental maps are now non-PvP.
  • Change: Replaced Old Payon PvP map by a brand new one, Colosseum.
  • Change: Removed Star Gladiator Feeling Reset in Reward Guru, later to be replaced by a quest.
  • Change: Removed the cooldown on the moc_fild21 warp. The cooldown on moc_fild22 remains.
  • Boost: The !killannounce command can now be toggled by speaking to a Kafra Agent by accessing settings for login commands.
  • Boost: The Kafra at Prontera Mall now has a Bank option.
  • Boost: There is now a quest available at the Platinum Skills NPC to change your Elemental Change skill.
  • Bug Fix: The Critical Explosion effect will correctly no longer regen SP unless the Monk or Champion is linked through a Soul Linker.
  • Bug Fix: Bloody Branch items and the Abracadabra skill (Sages/Professors) will no longer work on maps which are not able to be saved (through /memo).
  • Bug Fix: The Bard/Clown song Assassin Cross of Sunset now gives the correct amount of ASPD increase. Previously, it was found to be too low (particularly the AGI-affected portion), and therefore a bug. Now it will give the full amount (+20% at level 10).
  • Bug Fix: Taekwon Mission for Taekwon branch classes will no longer pick monsters which do not spawn naturally. This should alleviate issues where an event-only or slave monster came up for TK Mission.
  • Bug Fix:!killannounce will no longer announce GMC MVPs, MVPs summoned through the use of Abracadabra, or by MVPs summons with a Bloody Branch item.
  • Bug Fix: Added a weight check on the Reward Guru upon getting a Halter Lead with Reward Services.
  • Official Mechanic Fix: The Sight Blaster's skill radius has been changed from 5x5 to 3x3. This is an official behavior fix and the skill now reflects the proper intent of this skill.
  • Official Mechanic Fix: When using arrows to attack, you no longer will need to stop to switch arrows. This is an official behavior fix and the skill now reflects the proper intent of this skill.

October, 23rd, 2014

  • ASURA STRIKE REVISION (PvM ONLY): The original 175k damage hard cap on Asura Strike has been undone. Instead, the damage modifier has been replaced with a "diminishing return algorithm." Here is how the new Asura Strike behavior works:
    • There is a "soft cap" of 200k damage on Asura. This means that Asura Strike behaves normally until damage exceeds 200k.
    • Once Asura Damage exceeds 200k, the diminishing return equation kicks in. What this means is that damage dealt by Asura Strike in PvM begins to taper off at an exponential rate. For example under the new formula, a 210k Asura will deal around 205k damage in PvM, while a 500k Asura will deal around 312k damage in PvM. Under this formula, Asura damage never hits a "hard cap" but rather tapers off toward a maximum amount.
    • All cards, status effects, buffs, damage modifiers (e.g.: Lex Aeterna), equipment, etc. will still impact the calculation of damage for Asura Strike. This means that all of these things still matter in achieving the best possible Asura damage.
    • Asura Strike's cooldown for PvM will be 10 seconds.
    • Finally, we will work to ensure the new Asura Strike damage calculation is updated within the TalonRO Calculator, so that players may consider their own builds and damage output transparently within the calculator.
  • ARROW SHOWER REVISION (PvP ONLY): Arrow Shower will once again push traps in PvP/WOE gameplay. Arrow Shower and pushing traps will however remain disabled in PvM gameplay per the previous patch notes.
  • Bug Fix: The minimap on the new Prontera Mall has been updated to accurately reflect the map's layout.
  • Bug Fix: The vending lanes in the Prontera Mall have also been fixed to be more orderly.
  • Bug Fix: The vending officers in Prontera, Prontera Mall, and Payon now will first look for spots on the current map you're on. If no spots are available on the map, he will tell you to look for a another map as well. This way, you will be able to find a spot only on the map you are on.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a small issue with the Acid Demonstration BG bottles. They should now be properly added and removed during Battlegrounds match play.
  • Bug Fix: A display error with the Tarot Card of Fate skill has been fixed. The skill should now properly display card images when used.
  • Bug Fix: The new Reward Service command, !killannounce, is now working properly. It is now available as a command once again through Reward Services.
  • Boost: A Kafra Agent has been added to the Prontera Mall map for easy access to storage and other menus.

October, 22nd, 2014

  • Addition of !killannounce. We've added an all-new command to our Reward Services called !killannounce. This command will enable a message to pop up in your chat window whenever a spawnable MVP has been killed across all of TalonRO. One major reason for the addition of this command is to make finding MVPs as a party more equitable.
  • Skill Change: Poem of Bragi has been restored to full efficiency for WoE and PvP only. This means that at Level 10, Bragi will grant a player 30% Faster Cast & 50% Less Delay for PvP/WoE ONLY. The previous Bragi change still applies to PvM situations.
  • Skill Change: The Asura Strike skill caps and cooldown will now behave differently in PvM or Non-PvP modes. In PvM, Asura Strike Capped to 175k Damage and Cooldown Reduced to 10 Seconds. While in PvP-style/WoE-style Asura Strike will still maintain a 15 second cooldown and have no damage cap.
  • Boost: The Wave Challenge Minigame now features several new enhancements:
    • Updated some of the points that monsters (and especially MVPs) give.
    • Reduced the price of purchasing mercenaries.
    • Fixed a ranking NPC bug.
    • You can now purchase a Kafra and Repairman.
  • Boost: The Prontera Mall has been added to available !autotrade vending spots. This change adds nearly 300 more vending spots to TalonRO.
  • Boost: Players will now be able to vend on three characters per person, an increase from the previous two characters per person. Spots in Payon have also been optimized to reduce lag in Payon for players.
  • Boost: The Djinn SQI now has three slots for cards, as opposed to the original two slots.
  • Boost: Added special Alchemist AD bottles to the available supplies for Battlegrounds.
  • Nerf: The Arrow Shower skill will no longer push traps.
  • Nerf: "The Lovers" card from the Tarot Card of Fate Skill has been disabled, the card will still appear but its effects will not apply.
  • Nerf: The command @storeall has been disabled.
  • Nerf: The achievement system access on the Control Panel has been disabled. The Achievement System however remains in effect in-game. However, you will presently be unable to access the full achievement listing in the Control Panel at this time.
  • Bug Fix: A fix was applied to the Rest EXP bonus. This should now be working properly.
  • Bug Fix: The stylist in Prontera now features an additional confirmation when selecting a random hairstyle.
  • Bug Fix: Updated some client messages, such as when entering a wrong password in a chatbox and vending expensive items.
  • Misc. Edit: You can now only open chats on the sides of the road in Prontera.
  • Misc. Edit: Manuela in the Newbie Grounds will no longer ask you to enter in a phrase. The rule confirmation message will now appear as a selectable menu instead.

August, 11th, 2014

  • Battlegrounds : Implemented Battlegrounds Tierra Gorge and Battlegrounds Flavius. Both modes will feature Vanilla and Unrestriced Version. You can't use any normal usable items in Battlegrounds. However, you will be given BG HP/SP Potions, BG ASPD Potions and BG Green Potions at the start of each match. The goal of Battlegrounds is to face a team of other players in a GvG-style battle. The Winning team will receive either Valor Coins or Bravery Coins, depending on the BG mode you choose. These special coins can then be used to purchase exclusive weapons, armors, and consumable items you will only find in the Battlegrounds Arena. You can find more informations about Battlegrounds in here
    • Battlegrounds is now 8v8 instead of 10v10
    • Fixed !battleground warping players already when not enough players joined yet
    • Added all modes to !battleground. It will now warp players directly to the waiting rooms of choice so a match can start right away
    • Fixed a bug with the AFK timer causing issues when just joining a BG match
    • Increased the AFK timer to 3 minutes
    • Fixed a bug where when you died, you'd be sent back to town
    • Lowered the DC cooldown from 30 to 15 minutes
    • Moved the Vanilla/Unrestricted NPCs a bit so it's more clear which is which. Also added NPCs to show you the way
    • Removed and merged some NPCs in the Battlegrounds waiting room
  • Lighthalzen Biolab 4
    • Introducing Lighthalzen Biolab 4. Once inside the lab, you'll find many new mobs who are ready to put up a good fight and reward you with good loots and valuable EXP if you survive. We've implemented a whole host of new drops, weapons, and items that go along with these monsters! With new MVPs as well located in Biolab 4, this PvM adventure is a challenge of sizable proportions. To access Biolab 4, you'll find the entrance located somewhere within Level 3 of the biolabs and you need to finish quests first. The new loots from Biolab 4 are Cannon Spear, Green Surgical Gown, Creeper Bow, Alchemy Glove and more, all balanced for pre-RE. For now, Giant Lance and Salvage Cape do not drop.
  • TalonRO Marketplace
    • Shop Zone: With the new TalonRO Marketplace, vending has been centralized in Prontera and Payon. From now on, all vendors will need to speak with a NPC "Vending Officer" in both of these towns to enter into the vending lanes. We've also extended the vending cells in both of these cities dramatically. In light of these changes, autotrade will also be restricted in all other towns. Vending without autotrade will still be possible, however. This is done in an effort to centralize the vending experience. On top of that, Vend Spot Holding will not be an issue any longer. There are plenty of vending cells and you can wallk or warp on the cells reserved for vending. This should get rid a lot of rulebreaking.
    • New Shop Commands: Introducing two new commands to help you shopping, while you're in cities only, !shopjump and !shopfilter
      •  !shopjump : Using !shopjump allows you to jump directly to the shop which sells the item that you're looking for. With !shopjump, simply use it followed by the Item Name/ID and you'll be teleported right away to that cheapest store owner in Prontera or Payon. This command will only work while you are in cities and will not work outside of any.
      •  !shopfilter : !shopfilter is a new innovative command that will narrow down the shops in view in either Prontera or Payon. With !shopfilter, you can simply enter your parameters of what you're looking for and only those shops will appear in your view when you roam through Prontera or Payon. If you wish to undo this, simply type "clear" behind the command and all shops will be visible again.
    • Vending Updates
      • Changed the Vending Officer sprite and added a notification on top of it to clarify that you have to talk to that NPC first.
      • You can now vend (not autotrade) on: moc_ruins, yuno_fild03, abbey03 and cmd_fild02
  • Gameplay Changes
    • Boost : The necromancer Card can now be used on 2-handed rods.
    • Boost : All Bibilan Dungeon Level 6 (iz_dun05) mobs have had their Base EXP and Job EXP increased by 75%
    • Boost : All Scaraba-type mobs have had their Base EXP and Job EXP increased by 30%
    • Boost : Bronze Coins gained from Hunting Board missions are now character-bound instead of account-bound. This means that all players can gain Bronze Coins from the quest on each character once a day instead of once per account. All coins, however, remain character-bound.
    • Boost : Verit has been added to the Monster of the Week rotation.
    • Boost : Bibilan Dungeon Level 6 (iz_dun05) has been added to the Map of the Week rotation.
    • Boost : Green Potions have been added to the brewing list. They can be made by combining green herbs and empty potion bottles.
    • Reduce : The Rosary[1] drop rate from Nightmare Terror has been decreased to 0.09%
    • Reduce : Slightly increased the difficulty of Kris enchanting.
    • Content :The Rental Lever Action Rifle has been added to the Rental Master and can be rented for 175 Bronze Coins. This item can be presently not be used in Vanilla mode styles of gameplay.
    • Content : The following armos can now be enchanted:
      • Ebone Armor [1]
      • Claire Suits [1]
      • Puente Robe [1]
      • Divine Clothes [1]
      • Goibne's Armor
      • Dragon Vest [1]
      • Odin's Blessing [1]
    • Bug Fix : Clarified Zeny Knife description.
    • Bug Fix : Clarified Sky Hat description.

  • WoE: Speed Potion WoE:SE restrictions have now been removed.
  • PvP: The PvP Voting NPC now shows which map is the current PvP map.
  • Reduce: All levels of the Thanatos Tower now prohibit the use of Warp Portal skills (Note: Butterfly Wings will continue work properly in order to warp out of the Thanatos Tower).

  • Bug Fix: Fixed some bugs on Part Malaya armors.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a mining-related bug which caused portals not function properly.

  • General: Reduced global chat cooldowns: !main 5 seconds, !market 30 seconds and !recruit 30 seconds.

June, 22th, 2014

  • The range of where EXP is counted has been increased from 14 to 24 cells. This should hopefully help with things like Jupitel Thunder used on monsters.
  • After player feedback, the WoE Squad title can now be changed into anything you like.
  • We have increased the difficulty of the GM Challenge with parties bigger than 8 members. The more members you have (so only 9, 10, 11 or 12 members), the more monster will be spawned on the 3 floors. The MVPs were not altered.
  • You now get a clearer notification when you have an ingame mail waiting for you.
  • Removed the level restriction on guild storage.
  • Lowered the guild storage cooldown to 5 minutes.
  • We have hopefully fixed the Unlimited Wave Challenge from not resetting after a party has finished.
  • There were some problems with the GM Challenge no resetting properly which should now have been fixed.
  • The south Prontera jewel enchanter has been moved into the refining building.
  • Implemented various quest fixes such as in the Documents Quests. Also added a missing quest requirement for Buwaya Cave.
  • The Reward Guru now shows the amount of Voting Points you have in the first window.
  • You can now resurrect again on the final SQI Challenge.

June, 19th, 2014

  • Security Update
    • Implement a new command: @security. By enabling this, you can set a special Pin Code. While this is active, you will not be able to trade, drop, mail, sell or spend any items/zeny until it is disabled again. You can still store your items, equip them and everything. But when you want to buy something, sell something, use the Reward Guru or even refine an equipment, you will have to disable @security.
  • Wave Challenge
    • Introducing new PvM challenge called the Wave Challenge. Choose either the Timed or Unlimited mode and fight your way through as many waves of monsters as you can. Every wave will be a little more difficult and will keep going until you pass out. Gather points every wave and spend them on various mercenaries that will aid you in your fight by buffing you and attacking along side with your party - you can even place them on strategic points for the best efficiency. When finished, check out the Ranking NPC and see if you got yourself in the Top 10 of your mode amount of party members. At present, there is no EXP loss or gain for taking on this challenge. You can access this challenge through Minigame Girl NPC.
  • Port Malaya
    • New town to introduce is Port Malaya. Port Malaya features three exciting new instanced dungeon experiences of which one is currently enabled: the Secret in the Woods: Buwaya Cave Quest (level 90+). This quest might reward you with some new items like Kalasag and Buwaya Skin Clothes. Together with Bakonawa Lake and Bangungot Hospital, the NPC to slot these is not implemented yet. Port Malaya also features some great new townspeople, fun areas like the Jeepney, the Barrio, Luneta, Fort Ruins, and much more.
  • Nightmare Scaraba
    • This dungeon offers a more challenging version of the existing Scaraba Hole and is open to adventurers who are willing to perform the quest necessary to survive. Along with this dungeon, we've implemented two new amazing Cards. The Gold Scaraba Card (Accessory, ATK + (JobLvl / 5), HP -1%) and Gold Queen Scaraba Card (Weapon, ASPD + 15%, receive 1% less damage from Small, Medium and Large size monster. Add a 1% Magical Defense bypass on rod-type weapons). The Gold Scaraba is usable in Vanilla, while the Gold Queen Scaraba card is not. These cards will now drop from their respective monsters and are also available in the Reward Guru as well. Located at Kamidal Mountain of El Dicastes, this dungeon will only be available to those who have completed the entrance quest to access the original Scaraba Hole. Be sure to wear your Ring of the Wise King before talking to the Sapha of El Dicastes about this quest and embark on the journey from the NPCs located inside the original Scaraba Hole. This dungeon has increased droprates on all items (double droprates than normal Scaraba Hole).
  • Guild Upgrades
    • Guild Expansion skill will now increase to a maximum level of 16 - meaning that your guild can now hold 112 members. We've also eliminated the need to have an Emperium item in your inventory to make a guild, so you can get started right away on forming and shaping the guild without any barriers. We've also upgrade Guild Storage significantly as well. From now on, you'll be able to store any item into Guild Storage which can be usually stored normally at the Kafra Agent. This also includes equipment as well - so guilds can enjoy a more functional storage system for all members.
    • Starting now, the second position in your guild's roster will be set to "WoE Squad". Any member who has this title will be able to participate in WoE, up to 38 people. This way, WoE guilds will still be limited to 38 WoE participants, but larger guilds will not need to be impose membership limits for participants. We also hope this makes it easier for existing large guilds to switch into WoE-ready status with a simple guild title assignment. Please also note: WoE Squad members will not have the ability to invite or expel members. We've also given Unrestricted WoE a little added challenge. From Now on, the Emperium in Unrestricted WoE now has triple the HP of the normal emperium.
    • Finally, we've added an additional incentive to guilds which hold a castle at the end of WoE. Starting now, any guild which holds a castle will enjoy a 5% EXP boost for all of its members! As long as you are part of a guild which holds a castle, you'll get a little EXP bump on that character. When your guild has this active bonus, you'll also see it on as a new status icon along the right-hand on your screen along with other status notifications.
  • Cat Hand Enchanting
    • Now you can start create new items at the Cat Hand Group such as the Golden Bell, Feral Tail, or Feral Boots. You can enchant these items with bonuses, such as additional stat boosts. We've also added all of the official El Dicastes and Dewata scripts as well. One downside is that people who have not finished these quest yet, will have their quests reset. If you already completed the quests you will still have them marked as completed.
    • Items such as Feral Boots, Feral Tail, Golden Trickle and Light of El Dicastes can now be made and enchanted. However be careful: the more slots you attempt to enchant, the greater the rate of breaking the item can become. You can also enchant the legendary Kris weapon in Dewata with the traveling Blacksmith, Gatti.
  • New Hairstyles
    • Added 9 new male hairstyles and 9 new female hairstyle. However the client currently does not support more than 99 hairs. So unfortunately had to remove some new hairstyles. You can start the quest here.
  • GMC Additions
    • Added a second GMC Challenge room. We've also changed the time slot for the Thursday 11pm-Friday 1am GMC timeslot to Friday 12am-2am. Other than that also fixing the bugs with GMC.
    • The GMC forum cooldown now resets at midnight instead of after every GMC round. Also, every party member now needs to be in the GMC lobby when joining a round. Furthermore, the party leader is able to check with the GMC NPC to see which of his party members have a cooldown. The final reward for completing GMC has been increased from 25 to 50 CCs again. Finally, all players are now allowed to complete GMC rounds within 1.5 hours instead of two hours. Each GMC timeslot howewer is still open for the full two hours.
  • Optimized Mobs
    • Mobs in Lighthalzen Biolabs 4, the Port Malay instances, and many others have been addressed at the individual monster level to make sure your PvM experience is optimized for TalonRO. Each mob should provide you with a more specific level of difficulty appropriate for pre-renewal, while also making sure that the EXP, drops, and other rewards are well worth the time and effort it takes to fight these unique new monsters! We've also increased the EXP given on the Dewata and El Dicastes quests by 10x their original values and repeatable El Dicastes quests by 1.5x.
  • Gameplay Changes
    • All attack and skills will only net a player EXP when you are within sight-range, or 14 cells. We've heard your feedback about the negative impacts of teleporting of Magnus Exorcimus casters. From now on, you will only collect EXP for you and members in your party if the person attacking is within the 14 cells of the monster at death. This range is exceptionally wide, so long-range attacks and skills will certainly still net you and your party members EXP.
    • Teleporting will now cancel all ground skills. In conjunction with the above change, this also designed to act as a second layer to prevent issues like the one illustrated with teleporting and killstealing. Ground skills will only be cancelled upon teleporting, not by walking away or being out of sight-range - so skills like Traps, Land Protector, and others will not be impacted so long as the player does not teleport.
    • Yggdrasil Berries have a 5 second cooldown after use, and Yggdrasil Seed now have a 3 second cooldown after use. These cooldowns are designed to prevent significant spamming of these items given their extensive healing properties.
    • All Dewata and El Dicastes quest progress has been reset unless you fully completed the quest in progress. Because of our new implementation of the full Dewata and El Dicastes quests, we needed to reintroduce these quests into TalonRO fully. Therefore, any player who had one of these quests in progress will need to start over from their beginning. Any player who successfully completed one of these quests will still see that quest marked as completed. This only applies to any player who had one of these quests in the "In-Progress" category.
    • Changes to the Mining System. We've added 10 new earth rocks to each level of the Comodo Dungeon, and 10 normal rocks to each level of the Geffen Dungeon. We've also made it so mining experience has more of an impact on your success while reducing the overall mining cooldown slightly. On top of that, palyers who have not done the quest will only get the message about it once when clicking a rock. After that, no message will pop up anymore, allowing smoother gameplay. Finally, the Retired Miner will tell you, upon receiving your Simple Pickaxe, that refining it improves the mining rate.
  • Other Changes

      • Wednesday Vanilla: Rothenburg (aldeg_cas05) becomes Bamboo Groove Hill (payg_cas05)

May, 22nd, 2014

  • PVP Enhancements
    • Introducing new center of PVP activity called the PvP Hub. In PvP Hub, you'll be able to select a variety of PvP-related options, including participation in the upcoming Battlegrounds game and PvP maps. Also, introducing new PvP map system where players can choose where the fight takes place.
  • Autoloot Revamp
    • Implemented new autoloot system called Area Item Pickup. The new Area Item Pickup replaces the traditional @autoloot concept. Now, all items that are within a 3x3 cell of the item you click on will be picked up automatically, regardless of your level. You can turn on/off Area Item Pickup by typing @arealoot.
  • Optimized Mobs
    • Fixed various mobs, including Queen Scaraba, Brasilis mobs, and othes. With this changes will allow players to have a more thoughtful challenge with these monsters, while providing players with great EXP.
  • Gameplay Changes
    • Important Change - Bragi Skill: Poem of Bragi lvl10 now follows the 3% Less Delay increase for each level. This means that lvl10 now gives a 30% reduction instead of the previous 50%.
    • Important Change - Alchemist Shop: Due to the rise of Vanilla PvP and WoE, the Acid Demonstration skill has become more and more of a concern. Not the skill itself, but the easy availability of bottles for this skill. This goes against the Vanilla setting, which we have debated about for quite a while. Many options were discussed but the most viable one was to remove one ingredient from the Alchemist Shop, now players are required to only farm one: Immortal Heart. To make this task a bit easier, Verits have had their spawn rate increased by 30-50.
