Hi all, so another big update this time round, we have been targeting our economy and currencies mainly, but there is some good stuff too!
Firstly, I'd like to express that these changes are to promote several things that have been neglected, they're designed to create value and use for said things.
- Copper, Silver and Gold Coins were borderline obsoleted (inflated to the point of no use), due to converting down from higher currencies, and too many sources of it.
- 1mill EXP Bags, 10mill EXP Bags, Platinum Coins and Golden Piggies were all being flooded in to the world, due to over-zealous allocation of them via spawn chests NPC's and drops. This again was causing serious inflation to the value of the currencies.
We have addressed these issues all together (and added some extra things below for it), yes, this may seem a little bit of a loss, but it will work out much better for you all in the long run, with a functioning economy where trading is a viable possibility.
With all that being said, the following world-changing adjustments have been made:
- The Currency Converter NPC has been removed from the game (replaced with a new system below).
- All Copper, Silver, Gold and Platinum Coins have been removed from NPC drops.
- All quests have been edited where copper was a reward, and reduced considerably.
- 3 new powerful healing spells can be purchased for 200k Copper each.
- Silver, Gold and Platinum Coins are now required for 15 new [MC] Charm (Auras), alternative animations to the original for style choices.
- All loot chest NPC's (excluding Ancient Essence 2-5), have been reduced to output 1-1 @ 100%.
- 1m and 10m EXP Bag drops have been reduced to 1-1 @ 0.5% for all NPC's excluding the EXP Chest NPC itself.
- Reduced all shops items payout by 1000% (10k = 100).
- Golden Piggies have been removed from all NPC's except for Piggy Chests, the Mastercraft Island NPC's and the Golden Piggy NPC itself.
- Modified all quests to remove or greatly lower copper rewards / adjusted currencies required.
- Modified loot bags to drop between 2 - 15 of their type of loot.
- Buff Export daily quests now reward copper instead of silver.
- Modified Fishing, Woodcutting and Mining drops of 1m EXP Bags, 10m EXP Bags, Silver, Gold and Platinum to 0.2% each.
- Moved Aeeria Armory NPC's to Aeeria Port map.
- Added Traders Licence System (Reborn 100 + 5 Craft Tokens) outside old Aeeria Armory.
- Added Auction House System replacing the Aeeria Armory house and Currency Converter NPC formally in the bank. This system will be explained below in detail.
- Increased the HP gained from all types of Health Potions, increased the timers on Regeneration Potions.
- Added [MC] Charm Remove and Add aura NPC's to Aeeria Square, next to the Ninjutsu entrance.
Copper, Silver, Gold and Platinum Coins have been re-allocated across the game world as follows:
We have introduced a unique system in this update, the Auction House!
For 5 Craft Tokens, a reborn 100 or higher character can now purchase a Traders Licence!
This will allow the character to access the Auction House each day, the prices are bound to you for the day, and won't reset till the next day.
Further, there is 8 possible price-lists ranging from 0% (rock bottom prices), to 9% (highest prices).
While some days you may get stuck with high prices, this allows characters to buy low one day, and sell high another - effectively trading PvE to support any PvP trading that takes place.
The Auction House will sell useful crafting components, and Silver, Gold and Platinum Coins! This means that the going rate for Silver, Gold and Platinum Coins will vary from day to day, from character to character.
A large new content expansion has been added! In this update, we have added Mastercrafting!
We have added 12 new male, 12 new female armours, 14 new 5x5 range aoe weapons, 5 new pets, shoes, hats, upgraded accessories and more!
All of this equipment can only be crafted by a Mastercrafter, and it forms a complete set of [MC] equipment. To enter the craft area, a player requires a Mastercrafter Licence.
These licences can only be acquired for large amounts of cash, and by a player reborn 100 and above. However, these items can be crafted and sold in the outside world to players at a premium, giving anyone that obtains a licence, some nice perks!
Obtaining a licence also grants access to the Exotic Pets shop, players that have a Jeeves MK 4, can purchase some even better pets from this NPC!
5 new refined ingredients have been added, these can be crafted next to the Mastercraft House at /warp home.
4 new maps have been added, with NPC's that drop [MC] ingredients, and a boss with a 0.2% chance to drop any [MC] item! This area is accessible from within the Mastercraft House.
The maximum Reborn Level has been increased to 150! Please keep in mind not to raise any stats (str,agi,con,wis,cha,int) or attributes (evasion,defense,accuracy,attack,hp,tp) over 32,000 or you may encounter issues with your character.
Several items were reclaimed from low end equipment to make this update possible (lvl 0-30) - if you have a brand new character that happens to have one of these reclaimed items equipped, you may experience issues logging in with it. If this is the case, you have two options - delete the character, or if you would like to keep it, please contact me via the forums or in-game, and I will remove the item from it. If however, you happen to have one of these items in your bags / banks, lucky you!
We've also doubled the amount of [VIP] Golden Piggies rewarded for donations, due to inflation of the market, and more places to spend them!
We've also added a new system called World Spawn - that allows a player over reborn 100, with a Mastercraft Licence, to spawn in enemies or loot chests to the home and square maps! The choice is yours, will you cause havoc amongst the townfolk? Or reward them with treasure?
A large new automated training grounds has been added! This area requires a Reborn 10 or higher to enter, and costs 10 Golden Piggies to start.
The Ninjutsu Training Grounds allows players to face off against ever more difficult ninjutsu. Completing all the rooms will reward players with large amounts of loot - and an additional +20 to Agility, Wisdom and Charisma each time - such is the way of the Ninjutsu!
Pets have been disabled for this map, as such is not the way of the Ninjutsu!
These stats can be reset via a trainer and re-allocated to other stats, however, please keep in mind to avoid raising your Damage or HP to over 32,000 - as this will create issues for your character.
We have also added 4 more Royal Tournament maps, located next to the original in Aeeria Square.
A large expansion has been added in this update! This sees the introduction of Saereyn's Town and the Atlantis areas.
We have added 5 new classes to the game, accessible only by reborn 50 players, these classes use a new Unique Stats Formula, and allows players to gain greater amounts of Evasion, Accuracy and Defence. Further, these classes are scripted in to an upgrade chain - you can locate the trainier NPC at Saereyn's Shrine.
A new daily stat trainer has been added to Saereyn's Shrine, this will allow the Imperium classes to increase their chosen stat by an additional 100-150 each day.
We have added a 10 stage upgrade chain to turn a Sanctum 5 charm, into an Imperium version. This charm gains +500 HP each upgade, with the Mk10 version providing 11k HP.
3 new bosses and a bunch of new wild type NPC's have been added to the new areas, these all have a chance to drop Elemental Alloy, EXP Bags, Platinum Coins and Golden Piggies, though some of them more than others!
A row of new repeatable Job Boards have been added to Saereyn's Town, these also provide Elemental Alloy, EXP Bags and Platinum Coins for completion, and the NPC's required can all be located in these new areas (pending a small update to boss maps).
A new high powered buff spell has been added, this can only be obtained by the Imperium 5 class, and provides 2 hours of + 2.5k to all stats!
The stats formulas for all classes have been slightly altered, this is to allow for greater levels, thus more stats to allocate.
The maximum rebirth level has been increased to 50, the maximum points you can allocate to a single stat is now 20,000. This means, that a rebirth 50 player (level 10,000), will have gained from leveling alone - 30,000 stat points. This does not include stat points that can be acquired daily from the trainer.
With these changes, players will be able to reach their primary stat cap, and also increase their secondary stat considerably, providing greater amounts of Defence and Accuracy, making those robots a little easier!
We have added a support forums and a discord server to the website, please take advantage of them if you need support or want to socialize!
We have successfully migrated to our new host based in Seattle, and we've made some changes to the amount that Magus / Wizard group heal spells output.
Soothing Aura @ level 20, now heals your group for 500. Likewise, Holy Shield @ level 40, now heals your group for 2000.
These changes are aimed at providing the Magus / Wizard class with some extra benefit, as they have been somewhat left behind with usefulness, now however, they will be a valuable asset to any group, ensuring your survival in those sticky situations!
A large new feature has been added to the server! This expansion sees the introduction of Aeeria's Royal Tournament - a scripted randomised boss encounter, with a randomised event reward system built in!
Here's a bit about how it works:
The Royal Tournament requires a group of players to start, and it also requires the group leader to be over reborn level 1.
Upon starting the tournament, your team must battle through 4 waves of randomly selected high level adversaries.
If your team defeats them, the group leader can initiate the 5th wave - an event wave designed as a reward for your group, or a player activated event that could be hosted for anyone.
There are 4 fight waves, each wave has 4 spawn points, each spawn point will release 6 enemies, these enemies are randomly selected from a list of 15 possible enemies.
This means that each wave could consist of 4 different groups of enemies, coming at you from all sides.
Further still, the event wave consists of much the same, except the spawns have a chance to introduce 4 different types of reward chest, from a possible pool of 15 types of chest.
Also, instead of 6 spawns per spawn point, the event will release 10 chests per spawn point.
The event chests drop between 2 - 5 of their type of loot, at 100% rate, so the whole thing is fairly randomly generated!
We've released 22 high powered shoes, and 25 hats to the game! These require Reborn 5 or higher to equip!
This update requires re-downloading the client, or updating your client's pub files. Client download HERE - (04-02-2018), pub files download HERE - (04-02-2018).
Added Platinum Coins to Golden Piggies currency exchanging to the Currency Exchange NPC - the conversion rate is 10 to 1.
Added Reborn Essences 2 - 5 to the drop list of The Treasurer, at a rate of 1 - 2 @ 6%. We also increased the rate that he drops Gold and Platinum Coins by 2%, and removed Silver Coins from his list.
We've been hard at work this update, releasing over 200 new items into the game, we have addressed a gap in equipment between rebirth 1 - 5.
We've also added in an extensive donation rewards NPC, this will provide supporters of our server and community, with some well deserved goodies!
Further, this update sees the expansion of Fishing, Mining and Woodcutting, extending the loot tables from level 50, all the way to 200!
We've added a new hangout / boss room where players can socialise, there is a chance to drop all pets, bags, cash and even some VIP Golden Piggies!
The rebirth cap has been increased to reborn 15 (level 3000), for those dedicated few whom reach those high peaks... happy leveling!
An incredibly tough follower has been released - Jeeves! He can drop from Hellion @ 0.1%, otherwise, he can be obtained via the VIP NPC.
