    4th Job Maintenance

    Hello everyone! We'll be having a special maintenance this Thursday, 1st of December at around 3:00PM server time (PST). As you all may have noticed, it's been a while since our last maintenance, but there's good reason for that. Not only will this maintenance mark the start of the Christmas event, but all 4th Jobs (and related systems) will also be making their debut on this same maintenance!
  4. Hey! Welcome to NovaRO. Sadly we've been having some difficulties with our payment processors. I advise you to try again later.
  5. I skimmed this, interestingly enough we have some stuff in the works to directly address inflation, we'll share more details when we can. That said, I don't believe the first suggestion is a very good solution. The second one is similar to something we're already exploring.

    The Raffle NPC is in Prontera, look for her around the utility NPCs in the middle of the town. Not yet, but soon!

    Patch Notes #187.5

    Every player who finished their weeklies the previous week is automatically signed up. 10 winners are picked at random on Tuesday.
  8. I believe it is more than clear enough, with it literally mentioning the title of the weekly quest in various places within the quest.

    Refining on these pieces of equipment is working just fine, you just had bad luck. I never doubted this, but regardless we sent some testers and further confirmed it. Humans are famously bad at interpreting percentages, 10% is not that low a chance.

    Yes. The option was already free on map entry but it wasn't working too well, so we set it into the Shield for free so that it may work better.

    Previously Implemented (August 2nd) New Feature Implemented Hotkey Profiles. Hotkey Profiles allow you to exchange between extra Hotkey setups using @hotkey, similar to how Alt+F works.

You can swap into it by right-clicking your patcher and selecting Beta Client 2021-11 under the Client option.

Note that this client will become the base client and will be required once 4th jobs get implemented. Features New Feature Implemented ET Insta-polish. This allows you to instantly refine any non-shield item from the Endeavor Token shop that is +4 to +7 up to +10 at random. As with the items that this applies to, it is sold by Belethor, Master of Coin, at the Main Office (main_office,91,301). New Feature Implemented the Arcanist's Tome. The Arcanist's Tome is a custom skill that allows you to store and then use buff scrolls without the need to carry them around in your inventory. The Tome accepts Blessing Scrolls, Agi Up Scrolls, Assumptio Scroll, Angelus Scroll, Angeling Scroll and Arc Angeling Scroll. To obtain the Arcanist's Tome, talk to Jaukk at the Main Office (main_office,82,271). Jaukk can also craft all scrolls that the tome accepts.

    Weeklies in NovaRO are not targeted towards new players. New players aren't even able to obtain them, there is a level requirement before you even get the option to grab them.

    Patch Notes #184

    To your first point, we also feel Monster Subjugation 2 isn't the most inspired add, but we did feel that it was a good enough upgrade to justify replacing the Monster Hunter weekly. Hopefully with time we can think of a better alternative and replace Monster Subjugation 2, I know I personally am open to that. As per your second point, I feel as long as a weekly quest doesn't go over the already-existing time separation that is there from the Daily Reward weekly, which asks you to log in for 4 different days, it's a non-issue. I would agree it's a negative change if it required you to do an activity for more than 4 days. Lastly, towards point 3, I have mixed feelings. The idea behind Weekly Quests and a bulk BSB reward at the end is there to prevent people from abusing the system by trying to bypass the one-per-person-per-week restriction. Lately, with how easy the MH quests had become to finish, we were seeing more and more cases of people abusing the system and finishing JUST the MH quests to get BSBs and run them again. This is something that, if left unchecked, could continue to expand and create a very big issue. Because of that, for the time being, we moved towards condensing the BSBs to the Complete All weekly. In the long-term, if and when we come up with further, better alternatives for weekly quests, we may reconsider spreading some of those BSBs.

    Illusion Patch Notes #182

    Yes, they can be used multiple times and they can result in a lower refine level. They already do for the new enchant items. If you believe this is not the case, please create a bug report and include an example.

    Illusion Patch Notes #182

    Illusion Dungeons Implemented two new enchant items: Dusk Dissonance Stone and Dawn Dissonance Stone. These items can bestow 4 enchants to Illusion level 4 weapons instead of the usual 2. You'll be able to obtain either of these items from the Illusion Enchanter (prontera,88,113), at the following exchange rates: 50 Twilight Illusion Stones 10 Resonance Stone of Dusk (Physical) or Dawn (Magical) All Illusion Dungeon mobs will now drop Twilight Illusion Stones at corrected drop rates (vary from dungeon to dungeon). Developer's Note: The drop rates for these items were balanced as such that no dungeon is inherently better or worse for farming this item. Most Illusion mobs on Illusion Dungeons will now drop Illusion Equipment, pertaining to their dungeons, at a 0.1% chance. Different mobs will drop different pieces. All Illusion MVPs now drop: A random piece of Illusion Equipment, pertaining to their dungeons, at a 20% chance. A Special Refinement Box, pertaining to their dungeons, at a 10% chance. These Special Refine boxes can increase the refine rate of any Illusion piece of that dungeon from +4 or higher to +9~+12 randomly. A Dusk Dissonance Stone and a Dawn Dissonance Stone at 100% chance. Illusion weapons that drop as a result of the aforementioned changes will drop pre-enchanted with 4 enchants. Completing a Daily Quest Reset from Osmundi will now grant a Refine Box of one of the dungeons of the Tier being reset. As an example, completing a "Tier 1 reset", which includes Illusion of Moonlight and Illusion of Frozen will allow you to choose a Refine Box pertaining to one of these same dungeons. Refine boxes can increase the refine rate of any Illusion equipment, pertaining to their dungeon, from +4 or higher to +7~+10 randomly. Features New Feature Added the ability for players to "Swap Gear" their costumes. New Feature Implemented the Shadow Gear Upgrader Klein to the Main Office 4th floor (main_office,272,293) Klein allows you to improve a small list of Shadow Gears: Spell Flow Shadow Book -> Spell Flow Shadow Shield II Reload Shadow Armor -> Reload Shadow Armor II Hasty Shadow Boots -> Hasty Shadow Shoes II Soul Shadow Glove -> Enhanced Soul Shadow Weapon Force Shadow Gauntlet -> Enhanced Force Shadow Weapon Spiritual Shadow Gauntlet -> Spiritual Shadow Weapon II Bearer's Shadow Pendant -> Bearer's Shadow Pendant II Malicious Shadow Mail -> Malicious Shadow Mail II Caster Shadow Robe -> Caster Shadow Robe II Gemstone Shadow Brooch -> Gemstone Shadow Earring II Added Ancient Hero Super Novice weapons and their Patent Modification Cubes to Republic Armorer (jup_cave,194,216).

Community Suggestion Added Faceworm Shadow Orb, Juperos Shadow Orb, Shard of Earth to the Currency Wallet. Items Bug Fix Fixed a bug where some costume garments were giving their item bonuses. Decreased the Weight of all Light Potions to 0.1. The Nova Shop has been updated for Summer. Community Suggestion The following hats can now be compressed with Miles: Munak Hat Bongun Hat Assassin Skull Mask Community Suggestion Added the ability to recolor these compressed hats: Mystic Hoodie (Selim) Zealotus Mask (Selim) Megaman Helmet (Miles) Zero Helmet (Miles) Skills Bug Fix Scaled down part of the server side protection for Dragon Breath and Dragon Breath - Water. Developer's Note: Effectively this means the skills' behavior will be more consistent with what you'd expect officially. Siege and PvP Shadow Gears added in this patch are disabled in Siege game modes until further announcement. Bug Fix Fixed an issue where buffs would be incorrectly removed on WoE 2. Increased the weekly item limit from BG Secret Shop: Mega Orleans Course (Bound) from 1 to 2. Regeneration Potion, Guyak Pudding, Big Defense Potion and Big Magic Defense Potion from 4 to 6. Yggdrasil Berry and Yggdrasil Seed from 30 to 50. Draft WoE no longer has the barricade rebuild minigame. It was replaced with a 20s progress bar (interruptible). Added extra portals to WoE2 castles.
