    Introducing: Episode 14.2 Eclage! In their effort to trace the trails left behind by Satan Morocc, brave adventurers have crossed Bifrost into a mysterious city, Eclage. Laphines in Eclage were completely isolated from Splendide because of the Forest of Mist. Despite the extreme dangers, the adventurers have made their way to Eclage, pleasantly surprising the Laphines. Due to the will of the Bifrost Tree, all residents and visitors within the city's limits are able to communicate freely despite differing languages. Together with this new episode comes a new expedition to earn a unique reward and an additional event that will take players far beyond. Read on for more details as well as more updates launched during this maintenance such as Ancient Tower, New Cards, TamTam's Odyssey, Monthly Box, Battlegrounds, Valkyrie Bazaar and much more! New Episode Content Eclage Village is accessible through the Warp Girl, however this can only be done when the Eclage Entrance Quest has been completed. In order to get to Eclage through normal means, you can take the Mora east exit and speak to the Teleport Cat. This new episode adds many exciting new features such as the Blooming Flower Land, the challenging Bifrost Tower, Stat Gloves, new Consumables, Costumes, Custom Gears and a whole new storyline to follow. All fully rebalanced for our Pre-Renewal environment, this will surely add new exciting gameplay for young and old~ Eclage Quests There are a variety of new quests that have been implemented with this new episode. Help the Laphine Fairies with multiple tasks, pranks and find out more about the Dimensional Rift, Satan Morocc and time travel! Eclage quests will reward you with Splendide Coins (yes, the same ones earned in the town of Splendide) which can be spent on a variety of new consumables, gears and more! The following quests will be available: Eclage Entrance Quest Encounter in a Strange Land Oliver Wolf Hood Quest Mysterious Robbery Light & Darkness Memory of Professor Worm Wanted to be Big and Beautiful Troublesome Fairies Eclage Daily Quests Race to Top 10: Eclage Hall of Fame Event To celebrate the release of Episode 14.2: Eclage, we would like to introduce a brand new event that you will also start seeing on future content releases. The first 10 players who complete all of the Eclage quests (not including the daily quests) and speak to the Eclage Hall of Famer, will win a brand new Tink Pet! This adorable fairy pet is one-of-a-kind and will surely steal the show. While it is Account-Bound, you will be able to claim it on your other game account through the vending machine in Lutie. On top of the pet, your name will forever be remembered in the Top 10 at the Event Hall of Famer NPC! New Consumables The city of Eclage offers four brand new consumables. As these are Renewal-based consumables, they have vastly different effects officially. We have taken it upon ourselves to transform these items into interesting additions to our Pre-Renewal gaming environment: Peony Mommy Snow Flip Slapping Herb Yggdrasil Dust The items, with the effects shown in the image above, can be purchased from Herb Merchant Plafina at the Eclage Plaza for 5 Splendide Coins each or can be obtained in Bifrost Tower by killing a variety of Lichtern monsters. Some additional disclaimers about these new consumables: Only 1 can be active at a time (ex: you can't use a Peony Mommy together with a Snow Flip. Using a Peony Mommy while Snow Flip is active overwrites Snow Flip). These buffs are disabled on death. These buffs are not removed by Dispell. New Mobs & Drops With a brand new update comes brand new mobs and brand new items to explore! As per usual, due to this being renewal content originally it has to be adjusted to fit our unique pre-renewal environment! These changes and additions were made with TalonRO specifically in mind. The experience, zeny, and drop potential is adjusted accordingly to make a fitting experience for our server. You can view the below spoilers to gain more information on the mobs as well as the 5 new gear drops that were specifically added for our server! These drops have been distributed among a variety of mobs that spawn on the new field Blooming Flower Land outside of Eclage as well as the three levels of Bifrost Tower. Along with the brand new items that have been added, drop rates of official drops have increased and a variety of other useful drops have been added to these monsters. New Mobs New Items Costume Maker In Eclage Plaza, you will find Replication Expert Paltu. This wonderful new NPC can turn several existing headgears into Costume versions if you bring him the right materials! A couple of official costumes were removed from his selection as they have been used in other areas on TalonRO, but he has more than enough left to offer for all you fashionistas out there! Eclage Stat Gloves Introducing a new wave of accessories! They can be considered as the next step up beyond your traditional accessories such as Ring, Earring, et cetera. These items will be for Rebirth classes only, but do not have any other level requirement. Obtaining them is easy. By completing Splendide or Eclage storyline quests as well as Daily Quests, you will earn Splendide Coins. Exchage 10 Splendide Coins at Armor Merchant Naphara in Eclage Plaza and she will give you a non-slotted Stat Glove of choice. If you feel adventurous, you may try to add a slot to your glove by giving 5 Splendide Coins to Slot Expert Nattuer. She will then attempt to add a slot to your item. Keep in mind, there is a strong chance of failure, so try this at your own risk! The reward of having a slotted Stat Glove is definitely worth it, though! More information on these accessories can be found below: An Unexpected Alliance After having completed the Light & Darkness Quest, a new temporary event will open up that will be the start of a large expansion to TalonRO and beyond! Start by talking to Rin at the Eclage Plaza. She will inform you about a desire to expand Hiel's work with the Dimensional Rift Fragment to a much larger scale! We're talking Time Travel here, folks! This exciting new quest that offers daily tasks with marvelous rewards spans throughout the world of Rune Midgard, Eclage as well as Midgard Camp. Meet old companions such as Chief Balrog, Rin and Hiel and discover what magic lies beyond the Dimensional Rift and work towards the Reconstruction of Morocc and much more! After having finished the main quest, Rin, Chief Balrog and Hiel will offer you daily quests to earn Morocc Merit Certificates that can be exchanged at the vending machine at Morocc spawn. This exciting new custom content to TalonRO will be the start of something big. We hope you enjoy! Whew, that just about covers the new Eclage episode! Now, let's continue with some other updates! And with that, we are proud to announce the release of Ancient Tower, along with a batch of new cards, exclusive Valkyrie's Bazaar costumes, pets and a ton of other Quality of Life improvements. We hope you enjoy our latest content, and appreciate your patience throughout the development process! See below for more details. Battle of the Nine Instances *The release of Ancient Tower is among us! In order to gain access, players will need to gather a party of up to 12 and speak to the Instance Girl NPC, where they will be warped to the Valkyrie's Hall. From there, you will be able to embark on an expedition to take on this challenging gauntlet. Those who complete the instance will win, among others, 25 Valkyrie Coins, 150 Talon Cash and a key to access the Valkyrie Bazaar. The instance can be played twice per week, with the cooldown resetting every Sunday, end of the day. Valkyrie's Hall will be the hallmark for all future Valkyrie content. Stay tuned as we continue to work and improve TalonRO's PvE experience by introducing more tower challenges among other thrilling instances!

New Cards The remaining Episode 13 cards have arrived! These have been in the works for a long time and we're happy to finally release them! This wave introduces 20 brand new cards.

GMC Box Rotation Poring Soap Pipe Costume - #20716 Wind of the Prairie Costume - #20271 Wave Box Rotation Siroma Fur Hat Costume - #21057 Open Air Headset Costume - #20809 We wanted to take this moment to thank the community for their support throughout the years and choosing TalonRO as your home. With this month's release, we hope you continue to enjoy your experience and wish everyone's utmost safety and well being throughout the covid-19 pandemic. We'd like to also re-assure players that the database and SQI/Seals revamp are still our priority, with news of our progress soon to be announced in the coming weeks. Having said that, we thank you dearly for your patience. TalonRO is off to a great start this year. The staff team have been working extremely hard to release new content and reshape our older content. Although things are going great, we strongly believe things could get even better -- but we can’t do this alone. It is now time to reach out to you players to help the server grow. We get more than half of our players from Ratemyserver and your reviews are basically FREE advertisement for the server. The more players we get the more active the server will be -- PvE content, WoE, Battlegrounds and more people to socialize and enjoy TRO with. All we ask from you is to take 5 minutes to write or renew your review at Ratemyserver. We ask so little, and ask often, yet we are ignored by the majority of the players all the time. To the players that left a review more than three months ago, please renew it by deleting your old review and writing a new one. Things have changed drastically since 2019, let us know how we are doing! And finally, if you've left a review in the last 3 months, please encourage your friends online to write a review. Thank you. Leave an RMS review In other news, we are pleased to announce our next Staff AMA which will be held on Discord 2nd April (5pm server time). Save the date, ask Boreas why you were banned, how Radius keeps his golden locks so fabulous or which member of the staff team has an addiction to Oreo cookies. As always, we hope you enjoy our latest content release! We're looking forward to bringing you more updates and features as the year continues. Thank you again for all your support, and Happy Gaming!

    Ancient Tower Updates Various stat updates to Valkyrie Hildr. Fixed a bug where the cooldown was reset too often. Added Time Remaining announcements. Increased the time before monsters spawn on maps you just warped to. The spawn time on maps that don't require a warp stayed the same. Changed the spawn coordinates of mobs on various floors. Increased Valkyrie Coin reward from 25 to 30. Increased Talon Cash reward from 150 to 200 (and fixed you getting only 75 previously). Removed Top 5-9 rankings, leaving only the higher party number ranks. Fast movement skills such as Body Relocation should now work. Valkyrie mobs will no longer spawn in Elysian Garden. They will remain exclusive to Ancient Tower and future Valkyrie instances (Elysian Seeds will continue to spawn more frequently). Limited Costume Sale As a way to celebrate Spring, we are temporarily selling the [Visual] Full Bloom Cherry Tree Costume (Garment) in the Talon Shop for 7500 Talon Cash. On top of that, you will also find the [Visual] Fluttering Cherry Blossom Costume (Lower Headgear) in the Talon Shop for 6500 Talon Cash. Both will be available for one week and in limited amounts! Eclage Updates Eclage Plaza is now flagged as Town which enabled RODex, Talon Shop and Bank. The Eclage Entrance Quest is now Account-Bound. Players who have previously cleared the quest on another character will have to warp into Eclage once to unlock the Account-wide clearance. Misc Updates Added new Autotrade locations in Lighthalzen. This disables the Gangster event. Added the latest costumes to the Dressing Coach. Sorted the Talon Shop so that the latest additions are now in their proper locations. Bugfixes Satan Morocc slave spawns should now use their full AI right away again, similar to pre-Iduna. Thanks to everyone who reported this! Fixed a replacement weapon enchant bug with Weapons Master BK in Eden Group. As always, thank you for playing TalonRO and making the RO experience joyful for everyone! Stay strong during these difficult times.

    After a considerable amount of testing and fine tuning, the latest client update is now available to all players! We are thrilled to showcase some of the latest changes/additions to the UI along with several features that will further enhance your experience when playing on TalonRO! We hope you enjoy these new features, along with some exciting future planned content and development updates as we progress into 2020. As always, happy gaming! First off, as always, run your TalonPatch in order to use the new client. If you do not do that, you will be unable to login. If you are unable to patch, please download our latest installer to make your TalonRO installation up-to-date. Here is a list of new features and changes that the new client brings: For starters, the new client requires a minimum resolution of 1024x768. This is an unfortunate side-effect of the new Character Select window. The Character Select window has been completely revamped. You can now see all the characters of your account in one easy window. With the revamp of the Character Select window, the Character Creation window has also been revamped. You can now more easily select your desired hairstyle and hair color. The Quest Log has received a major overhaul: The window is now much more simplified with only three tabs: Active Quests, Disabled Quests and Highlights. Highlights function as a way for us to showcase important content while the other two are more important for your gameplay. The new window now allows us to display a lot more important information such as: Item Rewards, EXP Rewards, NPC locations and Navigation coordinates, sprite display, et cetera. You can disable the on-screen quest display per quest, so that you will only see the quests you are actively working on. Kafra Storage now has a special tab for Costumes. You can now sort your Kafra Storage by Default, Ascending and Descending. More skill buffs now have Status Icons on your screen, such as Bard and Dancer songs! A Tip Box. While this feature is not finished yet, this will offer a variety of new features to help newer players learn the game. Expect updates to this in the near future. This client features various bug fixes which will improve your quality of life in-game. Most notable will be the party window issues such as the icon display as well as on-screen member boxes not being locked in position properly. With this client, a brand new command has been added: @lgp, which stands for Lite Graphics Plugin. This command allows you to display things such as your cast radius, viewing distance as well as simplified effects for certain AoE skills. The major benefit of this is that you can now play without effects on and still be able to see skill casts. We believe this not only benefits PvP gameplay but also regular PvM. It comes with a new file in your tRO folder called plugin.ini. You can use this file to edit a variety of settings for the @lgp command, such as colors and transparency. Start the command by typing @lgp. Keep in mind that currently this command only works from the main chat bar, not in a PM window or with something entered in the whisper box. It will also not work through !lgp, only through @lgp. Use @square on/off/1-14 to enable/disable/change the size of the Square around your character. Use @circle to toggle the circle around your character. Use @aoes to toggle the display of AoE skills such as Storm Gust, Magnus Exorcismus, et cetera. For a full guide on how to use this command, please check out the LGP Guide! An unfortunate downside of the new client is that for unknown reasons, the Player Amount was removed from the server select upon login. We will compensate for this by fixing up the player count in the patcher in the near future. New command: @partybuff Along with the new client, we would also like to introduce a brand new Bonus Bundle command: @partybuff. This command allows you to see the Buff Status of your party members within either the Party Window or the small on-screen display. It works by putting a buff display in front of the player names. The command currently can display the following buffs: Blessing (B) Increase Agility (A) FCP (F) Soul Link (S) Devotion (+) In particular for support classes, this will make it much easier to see which of your party members needs to be rebuffed! We are currently looking into ways to expand this command to support more buffs, but for the time being we hope you enjoy this initial release. New limited edition costume For a limited time, you can purchase the One-winged Feather Costume from the Talon Shop at a cost of 7,500 Talon Cash. This limited edition costume will surely steal the show! All in all, we hope you enjoy all the new features of this client. Please let us know about any issues you might get! Happy Gaming~

Beary Tough Quiz Kuma says: "This is an easy one." Question 1 - What are the chances that both Porings being the same color? Kuma says: "First one is 1 x 1/5. Because the color isn't specified, the first pick is a 100% get." Answer: 20% Question 2 - What are the chances that both Porings are green? Kuma says: "When a color is specified, it's 1/3 x 1/5." Answer: 6.67% Question 3 - What are the chances that both Porings are not pink? Kuma says: "When not including a color, it's 2/3 x 3/5." Answer: 40% Our three quiz winners are Alamo, Pewps and Dea*.

    Hi everyone! The mini game Beary Tough Quiz is now closed. With that, we would like to reveal the answers to the quiz: Question 1 - What is your chance of getting this Giga Jellopy? Kuma says: "This is the gamblers fallacy. Every kill carries the same chance." Answer: 0.08% Question 2 - What is the likelihood that you have obtained at least one Giga Jellopy? Kuma says: "This is just math. 1-(1-0.0008)^8000 is the formula." Answer: 99.83% Question 3 - After how many kills would you be guaranteed to get the Giga Jellopy? Kuma says: "This is a logic problem." Answer: Infinite, as the chance of not getting the Giga Jellopy is forever present. Unfortunately, there aren't a single winner this round though a number of players came really close in solving them. We hope you enjoyed the Talonian and stay tuned for the next issue!

    Hello my pretties, how are you all doing? I hope everybody is enjoying a little time in the sun and having the most amazing time in their summer vacation! (while I just freeze and sniffle because it's winter for me /sob). Summer is also a time where you have that extra time to dedicate to your favourite hobby. And we all can agree that our favourite is TalonRO right?! So how about some amazing art from our oustanding artists~ Starting off with @ciliadesu from Cilia's art stuff. Such flowy and expressive poses! And would you look at that falcon, WEW! You can find more about Cilia on Instagram. Next up we have @Kurai Shónin from Dark Merchant that hosts the most entertaining streams! Oh, did I mention Kurai is one of our Loading Screen contest winners? Fancy! You can find more about Kurai on Picarto, DeviantArt, Tumblr, Tapas and Instagram. Last but not least, we have @Cherrios from ʕ ·ᴥ·ʔ Bobbing Around. It's such a cute, delicate and flowy art style! I'm pretty sure even an Orc Lady would look absolutely adorable if drawed by Cherrios! You can find more about Cherrios on Oh and let's not forget about last month's challenge! @Hell0_Viki was our shiny participant with a very appetizing slice of pizza! Thank you so much for joining! And to wrap things up, I'll propose a new challenge for this month! Draw your character enjoying summer vacation, in any way you see fit. To be featured in the next Spotlight, just post it anywhere and tag me. Until next month!
