    Daylight Savings Time

    Today, November 3rd, the server's time shifted back one hour. If you live in a country that went out of Daylight Savings Time today, such as the US yesterday, regular event timings won't change for you. However, if your country is not shifting times right now, you will notice that the server time is 1 hour earlier than it used to be and events will start one hour later than you are used to. In addition to this, next week, WoE1 and Draft WoE will be moving 1 hour backward so that the time changes don't affect our international players. If you are in the US or another country that is going out of DST, WoE 1 and Draft WoE will be an hour earlier than you are used to. You may also just check with the WoE Information NPC in every town.
  2. The monthly PvP tournament is temporarily on a pause while we work on restructuring the tournament to make it more exciting, both for the participants and for the spectators. We will be working closely with the commissioners to discuss class balance, team composition and overall diversity of the tournament in the upcoming weeks. This restructuring is expected to take 1-2 months.

    Halloween Patch Notes

    Halloween Event The Halloween Event has once again begun! Creepy Critters are being spotted all throughout Rune-Midgard and legions of monsters are invading the cities of the world! Defeat them to obtain rewards, including many exclusive headgears. Rumors pass from soul to soul about the one responsible for all of this, the mysterious Trickster King. What terrors will the Trickster King and his army of the dead unleash upon Rune-Midgard? Only time will tell. Creepy Critters will spawn in most field and dungeon maps. Kill them for Pumpkins and exchange them to the Coffin in Prontera for Halloween Coins. You can also earn Halloween Coins by participating in the town invasions. You can then exchange your Halloween Coins to Loki for either headgears or one of his boxes. Defeat the Trickster King in order to obtain Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings. Continue to defeat him for Chromatic Stones which you can bring to Selim in Prontera for Devil Wing recolors. With so many recolor tasks, Selim has been going around Prontera recruiting new test subjects to help her fulfill her creepy food orders for her loyal clients, the Deadly Sins. And last but not least the Tower of Trickery makes its return! The Halloween Event will end on November 7th at 11:59PM [Server Time - PST] Halloween Event 2019 The event is divided into multiple sections with a wide range of challenges and unique mechanics for all to enjoy! For more information, check our wiki page! Trickster Realm: Visit another world, where you can farm Halloween Coins and Spirit Shards. Town Invasion: Obtain Halloween Coins from monster drops. Mysterious Coffin: Collect Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and Halloween Coins to complete the quest and be rewarded with costumes! Tower of Trickery: Go through series of mini-games and collect Halloween Coins. You also get a chance at getting unique headgears from completing it! Trickster King: This fight is for the brave and consist of a real challenge! Fighting the King will require a strong team and Spirit Shards from each participating player. Cooking with Selim: Help Selim cook up spooky meals to satiate the hunger of the Hungry Hungry Sins and earn Phantom Favors. Currencies: Spirit Shards: Used to enter the hard Trickster King's Keep (they are obtained from the Twisted Realm). Halloween Coins: Used to purchase several items and hats from Loki. Organic Agriculture Pumpkins: Can be given to the pumpkin-devouring Mysterious Coffin. Selim's Paints: Used to recolor various Halloween-themed hats. Each section of the event has its own unique headgears and costumes attached to it, while Halloween Coins (obtained by participating in any Halloween content) can be exchanged for a shared list of goodies. All the NPCs can be found in Prontera, near @navi prontera 143 171. Loki will exchange your Halloween Coins into items and headgears. Demon Hunter Hector will craft Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings, as well as prepare you for the Trickster King's fight! Selim can recolor the wings you obtain through Hector, if you so desire. Mysterious Coffin is a small quest that gives you headgears. Tricky Ghosts generate the Tower of Trickery instance. Cooking With Selim You can find the visiting Selim and her Bad Monkey hanging around on the street of Prontera (prontera, 162, 171). Selim's coloring tasks are eating up her time so she won't say no if someone was to help her handle the food orders this year. Her most loyal clients, the Deadly Sins are particularly hungry, because scaring people all the time is draining, and there is a lot of bloodcurling cooking to be done. Every day you will obtain a list of three meals, one main course and two side dishes, so roll up your sleeves, lest Bad Monkey be forced to do the work for you. Additionally you are to collect Spiritual Seasonings from the parallel world to aid digestion of material particles. The finished meals can be brought to spoil any Deadly Sin on your choosing. Through the process of being devoured, they become human and Doram-friendly, and you get a little something for yourself. Return back to Selim to get your Phantom Favor. You may also repeat the cooking process as many times as you like. Trickster Realm In any dungeon of field map, you may find a Wandering Spirit which you need to kill. They will remain on the field as an NPC and talking to him will lead you to the Trickster Realm. The Trickster Realm is a small room with various monsters, whose difficulty scales depending on your character's level. These all drop Halloween Coins on death and there's a 5 minutes time limit to clearing the room. You can freely re-enter after death but so can anyone else who sees the NPC, regardless of their affiliation with you. When you reach level 175, the Wandering Spirit will open the Twisted Realm instead of the regular Trickster Realm. You'll find harder monsters inside as well as a chance of meeting a mob that drops a Spirit Shard. You can lower the difficulty of the Trickster Realm by speaking with Loki and selecting Escape the Twisted Realm. Please note that while this will make the mobs easier, it will also decrease your rewards and make you unable to farm Spirit Shards. You can revert this setting anytime by speaking with Loki once more. Twisted Mobs will drop Cookie's Bats which are used to evolve the Skellion Pet. Town Invasion Every now and then, a town will be invaded! The invasion progresses in the following way: You will get a 2-minute warning. Mobs will appear throughout the indicated map and drop Halloween Coins. There will also be multiple Wandering Spirits spawning. Another wave of monsters will spawn after a few minutes. After 5 minutes, the Tricker's King will appear. Killing him will reward you with Halloween Coins if you are within its range. The MVPer has a chance to get a Costume Witch's Hat. You have 20 minutes to kill this MVP. Mysterious Coffin The Mysterious Coffin will exchange 25 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins for 50 Halloween Coins. To begin this quest... Speak with the Mysterious Coffin in Prontera, near the bottom left of the fountain. You will be asked to bring 30 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and be rewarded with a Costume Executioner Hood. You can now exchange 25 Organic Agriculture Pumpkins for 50 Halloween Coins as many times as you want. Tower of Trickery The Tower of Trickery can be found in Prontera by talking to Tricky Ghost (prontera,162,185) and requires a party of 2-4 players. You have to complete several minigames within 15 minutes. For each game completed, you're given 3 Halloween Coins. You are also given 120 Halloween Coins as a reward for finishing the whole tower. The top three fastest parties to clear the tower are placed in the leaderboard and will receive exclusive rewards after the event is over. The same party cannot win more than once however, so if all the top 3 runs have been made by the same group, the 4th and 5th parties will rewarded instead. Before starting a game in the Tower of Trickery, you will always be given a choice between the left or right portal. Each one has a different game, so if your party struggles with a specific one, consider simply skipping it. Here's a list of all the minigames and some tricks to help you go through them more easily. Twisted Trickster King Freed from his slumber, the Twisted Trickster King has once again made his return! Without any power restraints, the regular Trickster King fight is no longer available. Adventurers reported hearing strange sounds when entering the Twisted Realm, some which would remind them of a caw. Any adventurer who defeats the Twisted Trickster King for the first time ever will obtain the following rewards : King's Crown Achievement containing the following title: Revenant Regular Drops: Vampire Familiar - 100% drop rate Banshee Master - 20% drop rate Brown Ribbon Scarf - 2% drop rate Black Eremes Scarf - 2% drop rate 5 Cursed Ruby - 100% drop rate Script Based Drops (Individually rolled): Chromatic Stone - 90% drop rate Great Chromatic Stone - 60% drop rate Much like last year's Halloween Event, players will be able to craft Little Devil Wings and Great Devil Wings using exclusive drops: King's Essence and King's Stone. Crafting a Little Devil Wings now only costs 6 King's Stones down from 18 Crafting a Great Devil Wings now only costs 10 King's Stones down from 30 The 3 kill requirement for obtaining King's Stone and King's Essence was reduced to 1. This reward still has a limit of one per day, per account. Refer to Demon Hunter Hector in Prontera for more information. 2019 Halloween Additions Selim has rummaged through her vast closet and picked out a new costume this year.

    Wrong inbox.

  7. Thread has ran its course, don't see much reason to let it keep going. Locked.
  8. We'll be rejecting this suggestion for the time being, but we'll keep the issue in mind and attempt to come up with better solutions to the perceived problem.
  9. Agreeing to this suggestion. The Dante NPC is a mishmash of two official enchanting NPCs, and funnily enough only the AAW side of things actually had the cast bar on it, seems kind of weird to have it on one item and not the other, and when choosing between adding a cast bar and removing one, I opted to remove one. Done for next maintenance.
  10. We can't make the game export a txt file.
  11. This is a client side restriction.
  12. Not something we will be doing. People will be invited to return to MH2 once new monsters have been implemented, as they will come with new rewards.
  13. No. We're not planning on changing the weekly quests in any way for some time.
