Up Coming Patch (For Gro Only)



As we all know the beta server has gone pass by few weeks ago but then not everybody has been successful on trying the beta test for some unknown reasons. As for a player that tried to play the beta test and failed for tons of times, what can we players expect for the up coming patch? i know that there is a thread for this i've read it but then i dont see any information on the thread that some of the cards that hasn't been implemented in the server will be implemented. It also peaks my interest to know if the new race will be implemented since the quake update and other new things from Rathena has been leaked from various resources.

As for another topic to be discussed, will there be new events for the server to come? the server has been like stagnant like this for years now without any new automated events running aside from invasion and picking up empty can and old paper. Isn't this a bit lack lustering for a HR server that there's no new things for people to be entertained rather than just sitting around in althea doing nothing.(don't even try to point out that there are gm's who are doing events because I myself don't find those events fun when they are just revolving to dice and HnS).

Another thing i would like to point out is please fix the item DB.

With nico being new addition to the GM team i hopefully and pray to the Gods that new things will be released to feel like this is a living server and not just a grinding server just for satisfaction of having god items and such.

May this thread be useful and enlighthen whoever reads this and not just ignore it :)

- What do you mean with "fix the item DB" ?

- As you've noticed, Nicocaine has joined our team as a developer.
The latest thing he's working on IS actually updated automated events. I will not go into any further details on this one but it's really being worked on right now.

About the Beta Test

What the beta currently includes has been listed down in the beta feedback topic, but to go into even more detail.... checkout the list below.

The new race "Doram" is not yet available in this update as rAthena has not yet implemented it.

Doram has been released a long with a new client version which includes a complete new char selection interface with gender selection PER CHARACTER instead of account.

Due the fact that Doram is not yet available in rAthena, i was forced to use one client version older before these changes took place.

So as soon as Doram has been "usable" implemented into rAthena, we will have to do another client side update to make it available.

This won't require as much work as we've had with this update anymore, but it still requires some effort to do so.


What will be included in this patch:

We're really trying to listen to all the player feedback, so a few updates are really dedicated to the players.

Misc Updates:

- Rebellion Class Release

- New Skills for all Classes

- New Beginner Quest (You start now random in one out of 5 Izlude copies, not the actual izlude itself)

- A lot new individual Weapon sprites/graphics (Being shown while fighting)

- A lot of official skill Updates/Fixes and some custom balancing from our side
- All latest official updates (Maps, Mobs, Items (also cards), NPCs, Quests...)

- WoE Core map recieved a blue sky and clouds
- The attribute LUK now affects item drop chance by a small amount
- Guild Alliance reduced to maximum 1 (Please re-apply your alliance upon release)
- Fixed Althea and other custom minimaps, so your location is shown properly
- Fixed Status effects (Burning, Crystallization) (Banaspaty, Sropho Card, DragonBreath ...)
- Patcher recieved a small redesign of the 3 top buttons, including the new replay button as described below
- Fixed female Cloth/Hair Color issues
- Skoll Card effect still doesn't work, but upon further investigation i've found out that the official script function is broken which has been reported to rAthena and they confirmed it. Which means it should be fixed in near future (waiting for their fix)
- Balanced Dark Priest Card effect

- Some bigger changes on the Refinement System, you will notice some new npcs in Althea

- PvP Changes, Hellbox original map has returned and moved up to the top in the npc menu

- Small WoE Guardian changes

- Completly reworked Service NPCs in all towns, including NPC locations, @go coordinates and save coordinates. In case players want to use a town as their main spot.

- Implemented the new manner system to keep it nice and clean. (The new system censors the bad words only, so your actual message is still being sent)

- Really big Source Code cleanup, this allows us to easier update the server and prevent unforeseen bugs/crashes.

- Overall Client performance improvements

Patcher Update
- Still collaborating with the developer of our patcher to get more bugs fixed.
Depending on how stable the latest release will be, we might get a faster and more reliable Patcher System. (not 100% sure as of yet)

Whenever i go search on Item DB starting from Type - Weapon to Type to Type - Armor this is the items that will be listed


Aside from that all the other searches like cards, usable, misc. are all fine.

I was never aware about that.

You guys really need to learn to report something if you encounter it. :P

It won't fix itself, and as i'm not using all these features most of the time as you do, there's simply no way i will ever find it out myself. Or it's just very unlikely to happen.

Next time please use our bug tracker. There's even a WEBSITE bug report section.


However still thank you for telling me, i will take care of it. :)
