    Features

    • The Christmas Event has ended.
      • Snowball will continue for a little longer. We will make an announcement when it will be removed.
      • Frosty will remain in Prontera for 1 week.
      • Smile has returned to the Main Office.
    • With Christmas Event ending, weekly quests have been reverted to the pre-Christmas quests.
      • Frosty Games quest has been removed.
      • Weapon Refine quest has returned.
    • Hidden Garden and Lost In Time instance reward has been reduced from 3 clients per computer hardware to 1 client per computer hardware.
      • Developer's note: Up until this update, we have put in a limit of 3 clients per computer hardware for most instance rewards. This limitation was put in place to prevent people from joining instances with many clients and receiving a large number of additional rewards from a single run-through. As of late, we have been more aware of cases where this limitation was bypassed by some players, and we believe it is best to remedy this situation before it gets out of hand.
      • The solution we have come to was to reduce the reward limit from 3 clients per hardware to 1 client per hardware. Out of all the methods we have explored internally, this was the solution that least impacted players who did not attempt to bypass the limit. We will apply this change to 17.2 instances "Hidden Garden" and "Lost in Time" as of this update. Other instances will remain unchanged for the time being.
      • With this limitation in place, we hope to discourage this type of behavior by reducing its effectiveness without falsely punishing players who did not participate in such bypass. We will also explore other methods to bring more balance between players in the future.
    • We've released a new 2020 beta client version (2020-07), we encourage players to swap to this client.
      • This client has fixed all the existing issues with our current 2020 client based on our internal testing. If you encounter any other issues please report them via the bug tracker.
      • NovaEXT will work with this version of the client.
      • This client will become our new default client. Players will have the option to swap back to the 2018 client via the patcher.
      • Next maint: disabling 2020-05 client completely.
    •  Community Suggestion Added a new @runecd command that will display the cooldowns of RK runes.

    A link to it would be nice and convenient in future.

     

    Edit: I'm downloading now client via torrent and it says NovaROFull_19112020.exe Is it the last client? It doesn't match 2020-07 in your description.

    Why are soapstones account bound? Wouldn't be good to unlock them? That way, ppl who can't imagine getting 300 pieces before years could sell them and ppl with multiple accounts wouldn't be screwed

    Yeah, but, and that's I guess why we're all playing here, we have a number of qol improvements making the game way less cancer and way more enjoyable on NovaRO. 

    I'm probably gonna make this suggestion if it has not already been done!
