    And the results are in! This is always simultaneously a very exciting and positively nerve-wrecking moment for (I suspect) not only us staff but especially much so for everyone who (in fact) participated..! There were 38 entries this time, and as few of you noticed, we implemented as many as we could as loading screens a few days ago. I do humbly apologize that it took us a moment longer to drag out get the final votes from last of our 16 judges. Now that we have the vote averages tallied and everything, without further ado, let's congratulate our top trio!
     
     
    1st place Winner:
    Sphyrnax

     
    2nd place Winner:
    Bowiie

     
    3rd place Winner:
    Snowshade

     
    Honorable mentions: Belhard & Hon3y3a3y
     
    Congratulations again to our winners and thank you to our participants, many of who are probably unaware of how amazingly talented they are! Keep up the drawing and painting, lovely folks, while you enjoy the late Autumn, dark evenings (and maybe some hot cocoa with sprinkles).
     
    Also, as a good number of you have been curious about where the rewards have been at, well, I'm happy to say both the participation bonus and the main prizes have now been distributed. (Thank you, Tokei!) This means you should hurry and check your RODexes. We hope you get something nice from the Loki's Boxes, and to see you again soon! GO GO GO!
     
    P.S. Remember that you will need to redeem the rewards on the character whose in-game name you provided when you submitted your entry in the original post.

    Halloween Event
    The Halloween Event has 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. He is back, and he is more powerful than ever! With this new power come greater rewards! 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. And last but not least the Tower of Trickery makes its return with a variety of new challenges inside, defeat it multiple times to earn the Broom Riders and Night Spell sets!
     
    The Halloween Event will end on November 4th at 11:59PM [Server Time - PST]
     
     
    Halloween Event 2018 The event is divided into multiple sections with a wide range of difficulties and unique mechanics for all to enjoy!
    Trickster Realm: Used to farm Halloween Coins and Spirit Shards. Town Invasion: Gain Halloween Coins. Mysterious Coffin: Collect Organic Agriculture Pumpkins and Halloween Coins to complete the quest and exchange costumes! Tower of Trickery: Go through a 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 player.  
    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 Pumpkins: Can be given to the Mysterious Coffin.  
    Each section of the games have their own unique headgears and costumes, while Halloween Coins (obtained by playing any game) 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 the Little Devil Wings and the Great Devil Wings, as well as preparing you for the Trickster King's fight! Selim will recolor the wings you get from Hector, if you so desire. Mysterious Coffin is a small quest that gives you headgears. Tricky Ghost generates the Tower of Trickery instance. Trickster Realm In any dungeon of field map, you may find a Wandering Spirit which you need to kill. They will actually 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, their 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 having 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 this will make the mobs easier, decrease your rewards and you will not be able to farm Spirit Shard either. You can revert this setting by speaking with Loki once more. 
    Town Invasion Every now and then, a town will be invaded! The invasion progresses as follow:
    You will get a 2-minute warning. Mobs will appear throughout the indicated map, these will 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. MVPer has a chance to get the 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.

    Star Emperor
     
    Through copious study of the celestial bodies, the enlightened Star Emperors developed stances that could draw in the awesome power of the cosmos. They can utilize the sun's explosive Solar Burst to devastate scores of foes, the moon's mysterious energy with their New Moon Kick to mask their presence, and the limitless stars to rain countless blows upon their enemies. At their peak, Star Emperors can use the Stance of the Universe to unlock powerful player combat skills. This includes holding an enemy in place with Gravity Control and striking with the power of a supernova.

    Soul Reaper
     
    By researching in Nifleheim, the realm of the dead, the Soul Reapers discovered a unique power they dubbed Soul Energy. Harvesting the energy when attacking their foes, they could use it to link powerful new souls to allies which are unrestricted by job class. Soul Reapers can also curse groups of enemies and then blow them apart with their Curse Explosion, or deliver powerful endowable magic attacks with Espa and Eswhoo. During player combat, they can cause a target's skill delay to increase with Soul Division. If an enemy has a Soul Link active, they can explode the soul within to do extreme damage.

    Finally, the truth behind the Regenschirm Research Institute (Bio Labs) will be revealed.
    Many years have passed since the discovery of the Regenschirm Laboratory by Schwarzwald Republic's president and the Rekenber Corporation...

    An adventurer enters a mysterious crevice after hearing rumors of strange sounds coming from inside.
    His remains are found lying in front of the crevice days later.

    Amongst his remains, strange items of great power were found.
    Many others have since decided to follow in his footsteps in pursuit of these powerful artifacts, but none have returned.
     
    What terrible mysteries could be awaiting inside the Tomb of the Fallen?
     

     
    All new equipment coming from this update will reflect their official counterparts with the exception of the rare, second slot enchants (Mettle, Magic Essence, Master Archer, Adamantine, Affection, Acute).
    These enchants will be altered to not work inside PvP, BG and WoE areas.

    No more blank Rock Ridge cards for our server! We are happy and proud to present you NovaRO's second player-drawn card art illustration batch. We had received 31 original illustrations during the contest's run time and out of these 11 had made it into the final selection.
     
    As some of you are aware, as a thank-you to our small but wonderful artist community, all these card arts will remain in-game as duplicates (with identical effects) after Gravity's official card art release. At that point these cards will obtain "1st Edition" prefix. All newer cards dropped past that point will have the official card art. The same applies to our previously released GMT batch.

    All of the credit naturally goes to the original artists whose player names are provided below, from left to right. New loading screens will likewise soon be made available for you in-game. Enjoy these illustrations!

    Throrin -- Vaults -- Etain

    Thank you again for all the patience you've demonstrated while waiting for the results the past two weeks.
    And I would once again like to remind all participants: please do not forget to claim your rewards from your ROdex mails (that will be distributed shortly). You have at least one week to do so from this day onwards. You will need to access the mail on the character whose name you provided in the original topic (in the case of winners' cards it is the same one as listed above).
     
     
    Our lucky draw -- Throrin -- shall be awarded a little Rock Ridge themed something as a commemoration prize and contacted for the shipping address shortly. Congratulations!

    Hello, lovely Nova community! Now that we have our decidedly gorgeous GMT cards in place, it's time for a round two. While the official artwork will eventually replace our community-drawn images (which may take place very soon or a very long time from now), we have decided to retain the winner cards in the game and add "1st edition" prefix after this happens. Excited? I know we are -- the whole staff team is very much looking forward to the new set of beautiful cards we will soon have and hope you are too!

    The same rules and procedure applies to this contest as the one before. If this is your first time participating, please take the time to read the rules with extra care.
     
    The Theme: Rock Ridge

     
    This is an Illustration Contest the purpose of which is to grant a new, unique look to all of our 11 blank Rock Ridge cards. You can find the full list of these cards below. Artists of all skill levels are welcome to try their hand at illustrating and maybe see their card in-game!

    Rules:
    You may illustrate each card once. This means you can submit up to 11 entries. You can group them all under the same post or make different posts for each, provided you keep your IGN the same. The character/monster/NPC must be clearly visible in the image but you may include as many other elements as you like. You are more than welcome to take inspiration from the small stories in a number of pre-existing cards and the card stats themselves. While humor is allowed and we encourage artists from all skill levels to take part, we also want pieces with effort put into them so please refrain from submitting low quality entries. Any troll entries and entries that include memes will be interpreted as low quality and immediately disqualified. Depending on the the number of entries, a maximum of 2 illustrations will be chosen from the same artist. We ask that you submit your image(s) in 300 x 400 pixels format. You may choose to attach larger versions of the images(s) so that we may use them as loading screens. For this 1280 x 960 size is ideal. Note however that depending on the number of participants, we may be unable to include all as loading screens. We encourage all artists to either sign or place a water mark on their art. Please include your in-game character name together with your submission post. No plagiarism is allowed; if we find someone submitting plagiarized artwork they will be disqualified. This contest will run from Monday, June 11th until Monday, July 2nd July 9th. Players have 3 4 weeks to submit their entries. You can change your entry at anytime within the time limit. The chosen cards will be announced and implemented in-game in approximately two weeks after the deadline. We reserve the rights to adjust and clarify the rules of this contest as we deem necessary.

    Ready? We are! NovaRO's first player-drawn card illustrations are finally here and ready to be implemented. We had received 46 beautiful and original illustrations during this contest and out of these 15 made it to Geffen Magic Tournament. They will be replacing the hitherto blank cards and these are indeed brimming with personality and colour -- and we hope, will be a joy for our players to look at for a long time to come.

    All of the credit naturally goes to the original artists whose player names are provided below, from left to right. New loading screens will likewise soon be made viewable; we've included as many as could be converted to the required image size. But for now -- enjoy these gorgeous illustrations!

    Thank you again to all the participants and for all the patience you've demonstrated while waiting for the results.
    And I would once again like to remind all participants: please do not forget to claim your rewards from your ROdex mails. You have approximately one week to do so from this date onwards. You will need to access the mail on the character whose name you provided in the original topic (in the case of winners' cards it is the same one as listed above).
     
     
    Our lucky draw -- GoatToaster -- shall be awarded a small Fenrir plushie as a commemoration prize and contacted for the shipping address shortly.
    Congratulations!  For those of you who wish to make this plushie by yourselves, a full pattern will be made available on my Twitter during the upcoming week (although it may take me a little longer than this to assemble).
     
     
    Also, one more announcement! We've changed our decision as to what our actions will be if and when Gravity releases official card arts for these cards.
     
    If and when such a thing happens, we will create duplicates of each of these cards with new Item IDs and the exact same effects as these. The old cards will cease to drop and gain a "1st Edition" prefix and keep the NovaRO card arts for their cards. All newer cards past that point will have the official card art.

    Features
    The @savealoot and @loadaloot settings are now account based instead of character based. You can also enable these commands on login (it will select the first autoloot list). Fixed a bug in Poring Finder that was resulting in it ending too early. Added an option to exchange multiple Temporal Crystals to Temporal Boots at a time. Added 5 more hairstyles to each gender: Added a Stylist to the following towns: Morroc Geffen Payon Alberta Izlude The party breaking mechanic for the party leader has been reworked: Leaving the party as a leader in an instance or Gramps will give the leadership to a random online party member. Leaving the party as leader when no members are inside an instance or Gramps will cause the party to break immediately. A message will now be displayed when your homunculus dies and it will give you the reason why. The pet and homunculus speed will now match their owners. Fixed an issue where skills in the two stray hotkey shortcuts were not saving when switching gears. Fixed a bug with one of the Lasagna NPCs that would get you stuck when speaking with it. Updated the ban system to display the duration of the ban to the player. Fixed some Gunslinger quests to allow them to work with Rebellions as well. Ticket System Update: Players will now be able to relog back inside of all instances listed below. Relogging while dead inside of one of the instances listed below will cause you to return to the instance dead.

    Illusion Doping should no longer apply effects from gears and cards. Shadow Chaser Changes: Auto Shadow Spell can now be activated using bows. The maximum level of skills casted through Auto Shadow Spell has been increased from 5 to 7. Reproduce SP cost decreased from +100% to +30%. Added the adoption skills to Baby Summoner, Baby Ninja, Baby Kagerou, Baby Oboro, Baby Taekwon, Baby Star Gladiator, Baby Soul Linker, Baby Gunslinger and Baby Rebellion. If you are adopted on one of these classes, you will need to PM @Tokeiburu on Discord or in the forums to regain your skills (don't forget to include your in-game name!). Acid Demonstration changes: Status attack should not do attribute fixes (Ghostring does not reduce this damage). The magic attack part does a card fix (treated as a misc skill). This card fix does include both elemental and race reductions, Ghostring and Demi-Human resistances). The magic attack part does NOT do any attribute fixes to forced neutral. An attribute fix to forced neutral is done from both the matk and atk damage combined (that part did not change) and should only be done once. There was an extra attribute fix to forced neutral being wrongly applied (now removed). Only the attack part of the damage is reduced by Defender. The matk part does the full damage. Fire Expansion Lv. 5 behavior has been modified to match Acid Demonstration. When walking on a song (such as Bragi, Assassin Cross of Sunset, etc), the status will only be applied if you have a weaker version of the buff. The change does not affect the remaining duration of your buff; this means if you had 5 seconds left and you walk on a weaker song version, you will have another 20 seconds added just like before. Shadow Warrior's trigger chance has been increased to match kRO. Removed the 1 SP cost of all Guild skills. Homunculus will be recalled to its owner the moment it leaves the player's view range. Cart Termination now benefits from card bonuses. Manhole now releases the target if it removed by skills such as Land Protector. You can no longer be damaged while in Feint Bomb status (from skills such as Water Ball, Chain Lighting, etc). Cross Impact can now be used when immobilized. Poem of Netherworld: Status Recovery now properly removes the effect. There must be a minimum distance of 2 cells between each Poem of Netherwold. You can trap someone directly by using the skill next to the player. Metallic Sound now deals 250% more damage on Deep Sleep enemies along with another 150% more damage from the normal Deep Sleep damage increase. Temporarily reverted pending further testing. Crystallize changes: This status effect can now be applied at the same time as Freeze, Freezing, Stun, Sleep, Stone, Burning and White Imprison. Having any of the previous statuses no longer prevents you from being Crystalized. Burning will remove the effect once it damages you. If you reach Crystalize immunity (by stacking vit and reducing the duration to 0), it will no longer affect you. Cast Ninja Spell - Ice Charm: This skill now has a chance to Crystalize you. The duration of Freezing has been increased from 10 seconds to 40 seconds. The duration of Crystalize has been set to 10 seconds (100 vit makes you immune in that case). Fixed an issue with Soul Link and night/day modes. Fixed Arm Cannon not consuming Cannon Balls after using Magma Eruption. Removing Thorn Trap now removes the immobilize status as well. Items
     Implemented a quest for Costume Black Feather Beret. ra_temple Thanks Investment Ticket weight has been reduced to 1. Fixed the Payon Soldier Card script for the spear weapon type combo. Fixed an issue with inventory weight checks that would sometimes allow you to speak with an NPC even if you were overweight. Fixed the Vicious Mind Dagger attack bonus (it was using the Crimson attack bonus instead). Fixed Magician's Night Cap's spellfist bonus (it is no longer ignored). Fixed Tae Goo Lyeon to no longer reduce variable cast time, but instead reduce SP consumption by 20%. Fixed Tae Goo Lyeon Job Level requirements. Fixed Fire Golem Card's fire elemental resistance. Fixed Fire Sandman Card's fire elemental resistance. Fixed Wood Goblin Card's water and earth elemental resistances. Fixed Les Card's wind elemental resistance. Fixed Faceworm Egg Card's fire elemental resistance. Fixed Ferre, Fere, Pere, Perre naming confusion. Also updated the item search database. Fixed Excellion Wing's flee bonus. Instances
    Fixed the Memorial Dungeon window that would keep showing up in Monster Hunter even if @nomemorial was used. In the Faceworm instance, you do not have to kill all the Faceworms anymore. You can leave two behind, which will disappear on their own when the Dark Faceworm spawns. The Dark Faceworms' HP will now be adjusted depending of your party size. Monsters
    Added mob drops for Sarah and Fenrir. Wicked Chimera (in Sarah and Fenrir) are no longer boss protocol. War of Emperium
    Implemented a number of Draft WoE changes to keep improving the game mode. Added the ability to box WoE Blue and Violet Potions to the Repair Kit Specialist over at @go woe (now known as the Packaging Specialist). Battlegrounds
    Implemented the Battle Coordinator Allows players to set their preference in regards to being Guild Leader in Battlegrounds. Positioned in @go bg, 215, 205 Fixed a bug where some players' walking speeds were not being changed in Capture the Flag and Stone Control. Increased Telma's max buy amount from 100 to 200. Changed the Triple Inferno map into a new custom map!

    Introducing NovaExt
     

     
     
    What is NovaExt?
     
    To put it simply: a fully customizable NovaRO extension system.
    Allows users to enable minimalist effects for skills when effects are off. Allows users to display critical information such as gutterlines, dead cells, skill range, monster detection box, and frames per second. Easy to use config file for customizing to your needs. Toggle features via in-game commands. No need for installation or download.  
    When you login to your character, you can type the following commands:
    /fps   - displays frame rate at the top right of your screen.
    /m2e - displays ground AoE skills around you.
    /bbe - displays bowling bash gutterlines.
    /dead - displays deadcells (non-walkable cells) in black.
    /circle - displays a skill range circle.
    /box - displays a box around the character to show if a monster will detect you or not.
    /cpu - enables CPU cooling which lessens the load of the NovaRO client on your PC. (useful for multiclienting)
     
    Currently, NovaExt only works with the default client. If you have changed version and would like to obtain the default client, here is a link:
    https://www.novaragnarok.com/download/clients/NovaRO_201701.zip You may also need to download the VC++ Redistributables (x86): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784

     Added White Cat to cash shop for 5,000 CP. Skills

Gate of Hell HP/SP damage part now ignores all external modifiers. Firing Trap and Ice Bound Trap no longer ignore the player's armor element. Chen's Asura Strike will be correctly reduced by wearing a Ghostring card (this change does not affect any other skill). War of Emperium
    WoE2 victors will now have access to a new, separate Hall of the Abyss. Note that there are no MvP spawns in this Hall of the Abyss.  
    Hope you guys enjoy the patch! And please, write us a review on RMS when you get the chance!

  20. Asterios liked an announcement by Millefey, End of Winter Art Contest   
    Have you woken up from your winter slumber yet, dear player? The days in the Northern Hemisphere at least are slowly getting longer and with the increase in light, it is time to be creative. If you have received some artistic equipment like paints or a new set of colouring pencils over the holidays, now would be a great opportunity to play with them and share your talent with us all!
     
    The theme: Winter
     
    This is an Art Contest, so entries will be judged on the following: clear presence of the theme, creativity and originality. Players are more than welcome to write up their own witty descriptions or captions for their images, but please note that any such text will NOT be judged to determine our winners.
     
    In addition to the in-game-rewards, the three winners will receive a tiny (and quite lonely looking) Myst Case (WIP as seen below).

     
    These mini-sized Myst Cases measure 2 cm or 0.8" at their tallest (and sadly cannot be opened).
    Originally designed as zipper pullers but as their geometry may make them prone to damage, I recommend a gentler form of handling or hanging them somewhere where they are less likely to get scratched/chipped.

    Adopt this Plushie: Leaf Lunatic

    It's going to be a sad Easter for one little Leaf Lunatic this year unless something is done soon! The rapid de-cloverization of the field south of Lasagna since the last week has forced the lunatic in question to seek shelter in a cardboard box (with a giant carrot as the only company).

    We have been informed that the individual in need of a loving home would like to move out of the cardboard box in the upcoming couple of weeks. We believe it would be of benefit if the future owner shared the fondnesses of afternoon naps, poetry and carrots.

    This is a text-format contest. To participate, reply to this thread and explain why YOU would like to adopt this plushie.
     

     
    Dimensions (in cm):
    Leaf Lunatic: 22 cm x 15 cm
    Carrot: 28 cm x 6 cm
    Both plushies were made to be loved, out of fake fur & microfleece. Stuffed snugly with polyester fiber and embroidered by hand.
    Carrot top, lunatic ears & front paws are carefully wired, thus slightly adjustable. Contain no sharp edges.


    Rules:
    You are only able to submit ONE entry per PERSON. Please include your in-game character name with your submission post (if no IGN is included, user will be disqualified). Please keep the length of your entry between 200 and 1000 characters (including spaces). You have 2 weeks to submit your entry. (March 25th - April 8th). The entry must be posted in this thread or else it will not count. You can change your entry any time between  March 25th - April 8th. Any entries submitted after the 8th will not count. The winner will be announced on April 10th at 12:00 server time. (@time) Apologies for the delay! Rules are subject to change at our discretion.  
    Rewards:
     
    1st Place:
    Leaf Lunatic & Carrot Plushies Officially Unofficial Laminated Plushie Card 100 Gold Coins  
    Participation Reward:
    Every proper entry will receive the following items as a reward: 5 Old Blue Boxes 1 Old Card Album

    2017 Client Release
    You can now patch up into our brand new 2017 client!
     
    Here's some features that are included with the client if you choose to use it during this test period:
     
    Position lag should be reduced to a degree. New MVP icon markers:
    /stopwatch:
    F-tab lock so items from F tab cannot be NPC'd. 
    F-tab organize button feature.
    Headgear Previews: Storage 'Close' button has returned. Added a Register button to the client login. Fixes the bug where the client rotates your screen when you alt-tab out. Fixed the Achievement Group quantities. Moved the achievement bar down so it does not cover item messages. Zeny amounts in the trade window are now marked by color. Certain AoE mob skills will show a new, updated marker on the ground to display those cells that will be affected. Annoying friend/guild check message will no longer appear. Updated several Rebellion animations.  
    Note there will most likely still be some bugs in the client, we're counting on you guys to find and report them!
     
    Features
    You can now transfer Guild Leadership to offline members.
    Disabled vending in Mora and Comodo (was getting out of hand).
    Login Settings and Channel Control NPCs now return you to the menu instead of closing the dialogue after setting an option.
    Added a tool dealer to the BG Waiting Room.
    Expanded the @wn command in order to include the arrow and ammo shops to it.
    Fixed the Faceworm/Chaos overkill interaction.
    Super Baby ASPD values have been updated to match Extended SN's, and their max ASPD has been increased to 193.
    Fixed the Repair NPC in Izlude.
    Skills
    Fixed Crimson Marker to now last 50 seconds.

    Mado Mechanic:
    Is now affected by Assassin Cross Sunset.

    Doram ATK and MATK bonuses now only affect the weapon bonus. <- Delayed Fixed an issue with Immune Shield where the bonus was starting at +6 rather than +5. Fixed the Parfaille Vigilante Hat SP issue. Fixed item description for Excalibur and Tiraya Bonnet. Fixed various item bound restrictions in the new Lasagna quests. Mystery Hat Box is now account-bound again. Fixed Rudolph Hairband's item script. Fixed item bonuses for Hero Nependess Shoes, Hero Silverleather Boots and Hero Ungoliant Boots. Updated server-side Runestone names so that you can more easily find them using their various names. This also fixes their names in Telma's shop. Cash Shop

    Implemented @voteleader command to take leadership from inactive leaders. Implemented @reportafk command to players that have been AFK for a while from Battlegrounds. Added an auto-kicker. When a player AFKs for a very long amount of time, they'll be automatically removed from the team. The BG Deserter flag will now last 5 minutes. This is to prevent kicked players from just re-entering the round and farming badges. Kicked players are being logged, and repeat offenders will be getting badge strips, as well as potential BG bans. Added a shop where you can buy Siege Set pieces for Valor Badges.  
    We put a lot of time and effort into this new client, and we hope you enjoy it.
