    The Halloween event is a far bigger event. This is just ONE of the features included in this years event. I am writing this Guide to help people. Feel free to use it, copy, and suggest things. First guide I make so dont expect much. Sorry about some of the low quality screenshots. The Rewards are: around 100 Points to your School; Hanging Dolls Costume (Account bound, Not yet in database) Chance to get a Bandit pet (Dont know whats teh %) - Bonus are +25 Maximum SP, 2,5% chance of using level 1 Steal, and 1% resistance for Shadow Property. -ITENS NEEDED- 1 x Empty Test Tube - (Buyable at Alchemist NPC) 200 x Snail's Shell - (Drops from Ambernite)* 2 x Old BLue Box - (Better buy from players) 1 x Rusty Kitchen Knife - (Not consumed, drops from Bloody Murderer)* 5 x Blue Bijou - (Drops from blue Acidus) 5 x Red Bijou - (Drops from red Ferus) 5 x Yellow Bijou - (Drops from gold Acidus) *Mob on a map that have one event NPC Optional but highly recomended (Dont be a cheapstake, just buy them): 1 x Dragon Tail 1 x Dragon Scale 1 x Dragon Canine -STEPS- To start the quest, you need to go to the Event Map. For that, use the Halloween Warper near the Prontera Mailbox You'll be assigned to one Team: Necromancers or Spirit Channelers. Talk to the respective leader of your team. The NPC will mention something about some relick (Monkey Paws?), two men, and a woman that died near a river (thats the clue, if you haven't done Kiel Hyre quest you won't get it). Now you need to go to Border Checkpoint (yuno_fild12 67,276). There you'll find the NPC Ratsy: Talk to Ratsy and ask about the dead woman. She'll say something about bringing her back, and will ask for a Bloodstone. It's located on Glast Hein St.Abbey (gl_church 49,20). Just warp to Glast Hein Churchyard using the warp girl, and take the south potal. You're looking for a weird thing that looks like a piano (in the right angle): CAREFUL HERE. Theres other "pianos" on the map that works too. I don't know its locations. YOU NEED TO SPAM. Just keep talking to it until it says you found a Bloodstone. Once you get the Bloodstone, go back to Ratsy (yuno_fild12) and talk. Now you need to get some Drowned Sailor Tears. Ratsy mentions you'll have to dive DEEP to get them. So now you want to go to Bibilan dungeon (warp girl can take you there). Go to the floor with Phens, Marcs and Swordfishs (iz_dun03 155,51): Talk to the Merman and ask for his help to get the Tears. He'll ask for the empty test tube. Agree with him on everything and he will give you the tears. If you talk to him again, he'll stab you. No big deal. Go back to Ratsy and there will be a spooky ritual, and a Banshee NPC will pop out DONT TALK TO RATSY AFTER THE BANSHEE SPAWNED. Talk/Walk into the banshee. Ask about the relic of MonkeyPaws (whatever that was) and she'll mention a tropical forest with reptiles. Now you can talk to Ratsy again if you want. By the way, thats Papuchia Forest (cmd_fild01). Now you have to find 7 specific trees on that map (yes... SEVEN). Their locations are those: cmd_fild01 97,48 - H cmd_fild01 93,148 - O cmd_fild01 123,242 - L cmd_fild01 99,295 - N cmd_fild01 283,259 - L cmd_fild01 335,93 - E cmd_fild01 202,134 - I Each one of the orange dots are Trees that you need to check (coordinates above). When you check the last tree, it will tell you about some kid in the Geffen waters. Thats in Geffen FIeld (gef_fild09 140,140). To go there, take a warp to Orc Dungeon, and then the portal in the upper right corner. Now find the lil' boy named Lhoris in one of the land things that strech to the water: Once you talk to him, ask about the relic, monkey paws, same old stuff. He''ll ask for some password(codeword). From the letters of the trees, you can guess. No? ok its hellion. or HELLION. Both works. Now he asks for Snail's Shell. He does not mention an amount, but it seems to be 200 (or really close to that). As stated above, you can farm the shells in this map from ambernites. Good luck. When you have the 200, just give them to him, and he'll say something about an older cousin on a place with toy buildings. For your surprise, that's NOT toy factory. It's actually in Gonryun Field (gon_fild01 130,133). You'll be looking for a NPC named Anzati: Talk to Anzati. HE'S ANGREH! So to chill, you decide by yourself to give him 2 OBB's. After he's LESS ANGREH, he'll tell you a pesky black cat stole his toy. A King Tristram action figure (I want one). The pesky black cat is a Wild Rose. Now the one who'll be angry is you. This part requires some patience. You'll need to reach Geffen FIeld 5 (gef_fild05), and search for a specific wild rose. The PESKY wild rose keep changin his location (It seemed to be among a fixed spawn locations, not confirmed). So what you gotta do is wander through the map trying to find a suspicious wild rose. The mous will not change to the speech bubble like normal NPCs, it will change into a sword (Just lke the Merman, and the Banshee Alysia). The only diference from a normal wild rose is that it does not move. Now If you see a wild rose idling, run to it. If its the real NPC, a dialogue will appear. Choose to snatch the toy. There's a chance of succeeding (not sure, I got in first try and some people needed 6 tries). If you fail, the cat will scratch you and change its location. OK, now you get that toy and bring it back to Anzati. Ask about relic monkey stuff, he'll send you to find a friend mage that went on adventures in a dry and rocky place near a floating city. Thats Yuno. And you want to search him in Yuno field 4 (yuno_fild04 54,142). The mage name is Luvon. Luvon will say he's busy with some orc problem, and you offer to help. He'll send you to a friend in the orc encampment. Thats the orc village and the NPC to search is Cassius (gef_fild10 345,205): When you speak to Cassius, he ask you to check the camp, including the insides. You'll have to find a total of 10 spots. They're: ORANGE DOTS are the portals to the buildings (you shouldnt have trouble finding the spots inside them), and BLUE DOTS are spots on the Field gef_fild10 246,83 - well - deep in_orcs01 151,31 - bed - feather gef_fild10 175,173 - axe - sharp in_orcs01 118,113 - shield - sturdy in_orcs01 107,178 - skulls - white gef_fild10 73,343 - banner - stained gef_fild14 325,195 - stump - small gef_fild14 80,170 - ballista - gigantic gef_fild14 121,306 - barricade - wood gef_fild14 163,285 - tower/lookout - tree You can find them in any order, and the order I stated them seems to be a good one. When talking to the last spot, it will tell you that you found everything. At this moment you should go back to Cassius to report. Tell him everything, and he'll ask some information For each spot, there were two red words, those were key words. Cassius will ask about something (e.g.. ask about Stump, and you type in "small", no quotes). The associations are above, together with the coordinates. Type exactly as it is. one letter wrong and he wont accept. After he accept your information, you should go back to Luvon (the mage in yuno fild 04). He'll now tell you about some Monolith in the riverbanks of a River around prontera. Bring the BIJOUS with you. You're going to find a Monolith two maps west from Prontera (prt_fild04 141,315): Touch the monolith and will tell you about Five Dancing dragons (or not dancing at all, whatever), and the number five. Also there's the colors RED, BLUE AND YELLOW. What a coincidence you brought your Bijous. Talk to it again, and you'll insert the Bijous. The monolith will tell you about some pumpkim. And you of course, think about Niff when you see a pumpkin. Thats exactly where you're going now. Its almost finishing the quest, only one more annoying part and we're good to get some rewards. Go to Skellington (nif_fild01 216,47). Its a somewhat hidden place, with lots of pumpkins: When you arrive there, you may notice the pumpkin are NPCs, but you need to talk to Jakk Skellington first. Remember that the monsters in this map can be troublesome if mobbed. Ask about the relic/monkey paws, and Jakk will tell you he needs some FABULOUSLY carved pumpkins. First thing you gotta do is talk to some pumpkins and choose to gather them. You can get up to three pumpkins at once. Do so and talk to Jakk again. He'll ironically ask if you need a knife, and send you to gather one in the valley. He also mentions a Pumpkinring that will help you in the carving process. Another coincidence, the map one east to SKellington is Valley of Gyoll, the place where you will get your knife and find the Pumpkinring (nif_fild02 47,263): Now, talk to Pumpkinring. I dont remember what he says, but you need a knife anyway. You should get one Rusty Kitchen Knife, wich is droped by Bloody Murderers on that same map. Its 60% drop and you need only one, so no big deal. With the knife in inventory, talk to Pumpkinring and ask to carve. He'll make a pose, a Sonic Blow sound, and attempt to carve. There's a good chance of failing (maybe even higher than success chance). After each attempt, it will tell you how many raw pumpkins you have. Carve your 3 pumpkins and go back to Jakk to give him the pumpkins. He'll accept it by a chance, and discard the other ones. here we enter a loop: Collect pumpkins in Jakk map; Try to carve them with Pumpkinring; Bring them to Jakk for judgement; Repeat those 3 steps until Jakk accept 3 of your carved Pumpkins. He'll then mention that to get the Relic/Monkey Paw, you should go to a huge circle, protected by dragons, and set the pumpkins to work their magic. The Map we're seeking is Abyss Lakes (hu_fild05), and you're NOT going to enter the abyss dungeon. I suggested bringing the dragon parts because the last step is in the center island, but not inside the dungeon itself. Now you should look for Soils that look like this: There are MORE than 3 Soils (maybe 6), so dont go planting anywhere. You should plant the pumpkins in the following spots, marked by ORANGE DOTS: Coordinates are : 281,139 -- 95,139 -- 198,304 Now you should feel happy. You only need to go to the middle and collect your prizes. To do so, talk to the Column, marked in the map as a BLUE DOT, and insert the dragon parts. If you did not bring them, you can try your luck and use Teleport/Fly Wing to reach the middle platform. Once there just talk to the spooky darky creepy black thing wich should be in the southern part of the island. It will say there's no such thing as Monkey Paws (the cake is a lie). BUT you'll get your prizes. Now go back to the event map and talk to the School leader. He will say that its a shame you wasted your time, and the artifact stills a mistery. -THE END- Edit: A huge thanks to all the people that helped in finding NPCs and solving puzzles. Thanks @Cassidyfor those extra piano locations.

    Hi guys, I haven't posted any art here in a while... Anyway, here's my entry for the contest: a Super Novice and a Gunslinger got too far and went trick or treating in the wrong neighborhood, or so it seems. I will be updating the image tonight since I still need to adjust the shade colors, that is if I won't be lazy to do it later... This entry is 1920 x 1440 pixels, please let me know if I need to adjust the dimensions, thank you. =) In Game Name: WeckI (the last letter being a capital letter "i")

    Halloween is just getting started on TalonRO! November's latest delights are coming through Midgard, and this month's update brings oodles of improvements to make your gaming time extraordinary. Our Halloween seasonal event is coming right around the corner - featuring an entirely new and redesigned event that we hope you will enjoy! Plus, new innovations to the Gamemaster Challenge, plenty of gameplay improvements, and the latest TTG & Monthly Costume Box are all part of this month's unique patch. Read on to learn of the latest additions to TalonRO - we hope that you enjoy and, as always, thank you for being part of the TalonRO community! Get ready for this year's frightening Halloween event! The GM team has been working hard to put the finishing touches on an entirely fresh Halloween-themed seasonal event with the all-new Festival of Witches! This year's event will blend familiar elements of Halloween thrills together with unique twists and turns in a competitive and team event - and we can't wait to bring it to you in the coming days. Our team is working to finalize the last elements of the event, so be on the lookout for this year's latest seasonal event with the Festival of Witches! Don't eat all of your Halloween candy just yet! The Festival of Witches This year's Halloween event - the Festival of Witches - is an all-new seasonal event coming to Midgard! Our GM team is finalizing the event in the next few days, and looks forward to implementing it shortly. When the event is ready and live, an announcement will be made, along with usual information available in the Official Events section of the forums. Thank you for your patience as we look to keep the Halloween spirit alive! Our latest gameplay changes are designed to address essential needs to make your gaming experience on TalonRO the best that it can be! The GM Staff is always assessing the state of gameplay and working to make things dynamic, challenging, and - most of all - fun! Read below for our latest gameplay changes: Gameplay Changes This month's patch features a tremendous update to the Gamemaster Challenge (GMC)! First, we're pleased to announce that GMC is now instanced! This means that any number of parties can now join the GMC at the same time! This update will also mean that previous errors where a GMC was unavailable to enter should now no longer be an issue. We anticipate that this new instancing will mean this issue should not be a factor for parties wishing to take on a GMC! Secondly, we're pleased to unveil the second of our two-new planned GMCs: the GM Saen Challenge! This all-new GMC features a level of challenge which ought to cater to a wide variety of classes. We hope that you and your party will have tremendous fun exploring and conquering GMC Saen and all that comes with it! Organize your best party and take on this new challenge as soon as you're ready! As always, we will continue to monitor and assess party readiness and gameplay adaptation with this release, and may make modifications as necessary based on player feedback and overall assessment. Finally, we've made a number of changes and modifications to GMC overall to enhance your experience with these challenging, custom dungeons. The back-end structure of GMC has been significantly cleaned up and optimized, which we hope will translate into super-smooth gameplay. As always, please let us know if you encounter any issues by submitting known bugs through our Bug Reports section of the forums. All GMCs now feature new rankings, established in a similar structure to the Wave Challenge. Rankings are based in a time trial, where high ranking is conferred based upon how quickly a party is able to complete the instance. An additional NPC has been added to the spawn location of every GMC map, which is enabled once the first three (3) floors have been cleared. In the event of certain players not being properly warped into the MVP / final boss room of the GMC, players may use this NPC to warp themselves into the MVP floor. Updates have been made to the GMC Lance instance. Overall, assessment of this instance indicated that the map(s) used for this challenge were far too great in area - leading to an unproductive amount of walking and low level of mob difficulty. Therefore: The GMC Lance floor map has been changed to be more linear / straightforward, and which features stronger mobs in greater quantity. This addition increases the challenge of GMC Lance significantly, and offers parties more action-paced gameplay. The GMC Lance MVP has also been granted additional skills and attacks, which will also raise the level of difficulty for parties in this particular instance. Finally, we will continue to monitor and assess party readiness and gameplay adaptation with this release, and may make modifications as necessary based on player feedback and overall assessment. Master account cooldowns for instances are now processed using a new method of calculation. Players will now have a limited number of times with which an instance can be played, per master account, and per time interval (e.g.: day, week). These limitations will follow closely to the overall quantity of instances which could be performed in a given time period, but realized as instances available to be played per time period. First example: daily 24-hour cooldowns will now reset daily at midnight Midgard (server) time. For example, players would be allowed to participate in a cooldown-applicable instance at 23:55, and then again at 00:05. Previously, cooldowns were imposed for 24 hours from the initiation of the instance. Second example: a 3-day cooldown on an instance will now become a limit of three (3) times per week, with the cooldown count resetting on Sunday at midnight, Midgard (server) time. Third example: a 3-hour master account cooldown will now become a limit of eight (8) times per day, with the cooldown count resetting daily at midnight, Midgard (server) time. The Minigame Girl NPC will also provide information on the number of instance runs a player can perform across their master account cooldowns in a given time period (if applicable). The no-vending zone in Hugel has been expanded to provide a wider area for active players to move through Hugel's town center. The re-entry fee for the Endless Tower instance has been standardized to 10,000z for all players, regardless of their class or level. Note: the re-entry fee change applies only when a player is already performing the instance, and is effectively entering the initiated instance again. The initial entry fee (prior to the instance's start) remains unchanged. The Player Control Panel's Storage Search feature now features a cooldown of only one (1) hour. This will allow for players to search their storage contents through the Panel on a more regular basis. Previously, this cooldown period was three (3) hours. Our latest bug fixes are also part of our ongoing effort to ensure that TalonRO runs smoothly, and that your experience is running at full capacity! TalonRO always takes the opportunity with our monthly updates to address any lingering issues through player-based bug reports or those brought to our attention - all with the hope of making your gaming time great. Read below for this month's latest bug fixes: Bug Fixes Hugel Bingo and Haunted House's idle checking feature has been modified to ensure more consistent and reliable initiation of these minigames. Previously, players were reporting issues where these minigames were not starting properly / as intended. Questlog entries for the Curse of Gaebolg quest have been modified to prevent a potential bug with the log entry. This month's Tam Tam's Gift region takes a spooky and haunted turn - appropriate for Halloween's descent into Midgard! Enjoy additional bonuses through the haunted castle of Glast Heim and its more elusive rooms! Tam Tam's Gift Region this month excludes the popular Glast Heim maps, including the Lowest Cave F1 (gl_dun01), The Glast Heim Prison (gl_prison), the Churchyard (gl_chyard), and the Glast Heim Culvert F3 (gl_sew03). Fight against some of Glast Heim's most terrifying champions this month as well for a chance to earn coins while embarking on a terrifying TTG-fueled adventure! Tam Tam's Gift Region November's region includes the Glast Heim maps! TTG in Glast Heim excludes the following areas: Lowest Cave F1 (gl_dun01) Glast Heim Prison (gl_prison) Churchyard (gl_chyard) Glast Heim Culvert F3 (gl_sew03) Champion monsters for this month include the following: Gargoyle, Raydric Archer, Abysmal Knight, Rideword, Khalitzburg. Finally, no monthly patch would be complete without our latest monthly costume box! Rainbow Sigrun continues to take top billing to our monthly costume box, and this month's box brings about a Halloween-themed offering of fantastic costumes, including the much-awaited return of the Ghostring Tall Hat, plus the Gorilla Mask Costume and the Punkish Cat Ears Costume, among others! Other additions to this month's box make it one worth obtaining - and be sure to do so, as each month a new box with new contents will take its place! November's costume box is currently available in the Reward Guru - and we hope that you get something fun to show off to the world of Midgard!

    Hello ! When i read about SQI bonuses for gypsy and clown, i realized they have so much potential as semi-DPS and semi - support class. This thread is dedicated to review the possibilities that can be reached by gypsy and clown at GMC / ET / TWC / PvM / etc. GYPSY Why gypsy ? - Decent DPS even when compared to snipers - Can support party with dance skills / dispel / spider web - Can equip shields - Adds some variation to party setup STATUS My preference : - Dex multiples of 5 - Agi just to reach 188 aspd with concentration potion (can reach 190 aspd with priest buff) - rest to vit My ideal status (calculator link) ...i still lacks 2 bris [sting] and sleipnir [GEC] when i wrote this https://calc.talonro.com/?caFbLbiabbta7bLababkpabwoaabababaae8ae6aaaaaahkaawjfZwFtlhPtofcfjgZfLfafLfaaaaaaekkkkadvfaaacVaaaaHaRaabaDaEaIaK Note : - Some might want to get 97 or 100 vit by sacrificing some agi - Some might want more str to hold more equipments / supplies SKILLS I will only gave explanation to the skills that I took (my peferences). feel free to experiment if you like. ~~Archer Skills~~ - Double strafe (max) Since this build also bring 2 bows, you can double strafe mobs if for some reason you cant get into TA / AV range. - Arrow Shower (Level 9) I didnt use this at all, maybe some of you want to use this with status inducing bow ? Up to you. - Owl’s Eye (max) Dex + 10 - Vulture’s Eye (max) Max range to avoid earthquake when you’re using bow. - Attention Concentrate (max) The only self buff we’re having for Dex and Agi. - Charge Arrow (Platinum skill) A knockback skill that is very useful to keep strong mobs (non-boss) away from squishy members. - Arrow Crafting (Platinum skill) Crafting arrow instead of bringing quivers is good for your weight management. ~~Gypsy Skills~~ A good thing to keep in mind.. if a soul linker gave spirit buff to Gypsy / Clown, their dance or song skill will affect the caster as well. Also, you can use the dance / song counterpart. - Adaptation to Circumtances (Level 1) Get this just for prequisites. Keep in mind tho, you can switch to bow / knife instead of using this skill to stop dancing. - Encore (max) This skill can save your sp if you’re spamming dance. - Dancing Lesson (max) Max this to get full effect of TA / AV / dances. - Throw Arrow (max) With full SQI bonus, this will be your main DPS skill since it spammable. - Arrow Vulcan (max) Our secondary DPS skill, only need 1 arrow to deal a lot of damage. Plese note the large ACD tho.. on the positive note, it kinda hitlock enemy. - Ugly Dance (Level 3) Just for prequisites. - Please don’t Forget Me (max) A mob control skill. This dance will reach its max potential with high agi and dex. Works like a quagmire, but only affect enemies at dance range. - Marionette’s Control (max) I take this because I use Gypsy for brewing as well, and too lazy to resett everytime I want to brew. - Fortune’s Kiss (max) Works well with snipers, they will appreciate more crit rate when SS-ing or AA-ing. - Wink of Charm (Platinum Skill) I never use this - Service for You (max) This dance will help reducing grape juices consumption. - A Drum on the Battlefield (Level 3) Just for prequisites. Or you can max this if somehow your pt member doesn’t have / use SQI. - The Ring of Nibelungen (max) Ensemble skill for masive atk boost. Since everyone seems to have SQI nowadays, i prefer this ensemble skill compared to the others. Please note : This skill doesnt work on Land Protector. You can use single dances when your party needs constant Land Protector on their feet. SQI Bonus I get these 4 for my bonuses : - Dex + 10 - Agi + 10 - 20% more ranged dmg - 35% more dmg with throw arrow Supplies & Equipments if you’re following this set, you will have 8X % weight with 1 str. # Quantity Item Explanation Supplies 1 500 Grape Juice using GEC won’t keep up 2 50 CWP Some emergency Pots (get ranked ones =p ) 3 15 Green Potion For cancelling silence and confusion status 4 15 Concentration Potion 190 ASPD 5 5 Yggdrasil Leaf Emergency resu 6 25 Fly Wing Emergency bailout 7 3 Crystal Blue Crafting 500 crystal arrows 8 3 Wind of Verdure Crafting 500 arrow of winds 9 3 Green Live Crafting 500 stone arrows 10 3 Fire Arrow Quiver Red blood gave too many arrows.. OWG alert 11 3 Silver Arrow Quiver No ideal craft source (too many, too little, expensive) 12 3 Immaterial Arrow Quiver Yellow bijou took too long to craft 13 10 Rune of Darkness Crafting 300 arrow of shadows and 150 flash arrows 14 250 Arrows I always prepare 250 beforehand Equipments 1 1 Wind Milestone My favourite tele gear, stylish as well 2 1 Valkyrie Helm [Gryphon] If you switch to bow, your ASPD will drop below 190. You might want to switch to this headgear to increase aspd and critical rate 3 1 Lord Kaho’s Horn Dex + 20, int + 20, yes please 4 1 Agi + 1 mid [Bloody Knight] For maximizing damage output 5 1 Agi + 1 mid [Gryphon] Pumping critical rate 6 1 Chewing Bubblegum For maximizing damage output 7 1 Dragon Vest [Gloom] Dragon vest for agi combo bonus, Gloom is self-explanatory 8 1 Formal Suit [Marc] Formal because its lightweight. Unfrozen is crucial at some bosses 9 1 Fire Armor [RSX] To survive when fighting strong fire mobs. I didn’t bring my FA [Ktull] because 2 FA is very heavy.. I dont like to be knockbacked 10 1 Belmont Whip [ TG / TG / TG] I prefer TG over AK because its more versatille 11 1 Creeper Bow [ Doppel / xx] This is very useful for making enemies force tele / halting strong enemy movement. I slap doppel for more aspd because usually when i’m using this bow it’s oh Shit moment and I need spider web to proc ASAP. haven’t decided for the 2nd slot yet tho. I did considering putting valk card on it, but sometimes spider webs backfires since it force tele some enemies. Which brings us to second bow discussion… 12 1 Cursed Lyre [Valk] This bow is the reason you need AGI & Crit gears. In case you party doesn’t have professor and there are mobs that needs to be dispelled, this bow will shine !! Keep in mind that in order to valk card to proc dispel, you need to hit the enemy (hence CRIT pumping gears). Another alternative would be asking champ for spirit sphere (always hit) or using greatest general card (proc to call spirit). I prefer crit gears to gave my party members less work. Why cursed lyre ? Because I like to curse mobs. 13 1 Buckler [Zherlthsh] Zherlthsh will boost TA damage, I’m using this a lot. Don’t mind the shield type tho, I brought 4 different shield type for easy quickslot switching (all of them are lightweight priority) 14 1 Guard [GTB] Combine this with AV and you call kill those annoying Hws with ease. Or any magic using mobs that needs GTB and have to be killed quickly 15 1 Silver Guard [Maya] Auto guard is great for surviving deadly attacks on some cases 16 1 Naga Scale Shield [Medusa] Prevents stone curse, useful 17 1 Dragon Manteau [Stemworm] Dragon manteau to complete the dragon equip set, stemworm to maximize damage output 18 1 Shoes [GEC] For SP purposes.. I want sleipnir T_T 19 1 Celebration Ring I want Bris sting T_T 20 1 Celebration Ring I want Bris sting T_T There you have it, my guide for using Gypsy. Next I shall be writing a few things about clown as well. Since they are similar, I will only listing and explaining some different points Clown STATUS The Status build would be slightly different because clown doesn’t have agi + 10 SQI bonus. In my case, I will be sacrificing more vit to get 190 ASPD (with concentration potion and priest buff).

    You're officially invited to this year's Festival of Witches! Long considered a hidden festival of the witching academies, the two most prestigious schools of the dark arts have found themselves bound into an ancient traditional festival and competition to see which school's pupils have gained true sight into the powers of the dead. The Necromancers and the Spirit Channelers, Niflheim's two most powerful practitioners of the dark arts, have used the time of Halloween to test their finely-honed mystic arts in friendly competition for bragging rights in their mastery of magic. For centuries, each annual Festival of Witches has been hidden from the view of the living - and each year has always produced a clear winner between the two rival schools. But, for the first time in nearly three centuries following the dark era of Ragnarok, an unprecedented tie between the two schools emerged on Halloween night! The President of the Academies, Miriette, summoned each of the headmasters of the two rival school to meet in emergency session to determine how to break the tie between their students - and with it, a solution: for the first time, the witches have extended their festival and opened its magic to the residents of Midgard. Since the adventurers of Midgard are new, their fresh take on the ancient festival will surely yield a clear winner - and it will be up to you to fight for a side in the end in this year's Halloween celebration: the Festival of Witches! Like Halloween celebrations of the past, this year's festival is action packed! However, the Festival of Witches presents an opportunity to experience an entirely new series of events, festivities, games, and goals! With an entirely new twist on a classic holiday adventure, this year's Festival of Witches presents a unique opportunity to play together, challenge your fellow adventurers, and - as always - win some absolutely fantastic prizes! The Festival of Witches is, at its heart, a competition: the two most prestigious schools of witches have found themselves in a tie during this year's Halloween rivalry. As such, the invitation to the Festival of Witches requires you to first be assigned to a school affiliation. The prestigious school of Necromancers channel dark spirits, and as such wield power and might to command the dead to carry out their will. Spirit Channelers communicate with the forces of light and balance their energies to invoke the power of the spiritual plane. Far from being good vs. evil - each school of witchcraft uses their magic for powerful ends, and your goal is to first align yourself to one of the two schools to assist them in settling their unprecedented tie! School Affiliation Begin this year's Festival of Witches in the Academy Ground, dressed up to be a replica of Niflheim! Speak with the Halloween Warper in Prontera to enter! From there, she will assign you to one of the two rival schools of Witchcraft in Niflheim: The Spirit Channelers, led by Headmaster Azviar. The Necromancers, led by Headmaster Bryjar. Once in the Festival area, explore the festival of witches while supporting your assigned school team: The Spirit Channelers school - witches who use the forces of light to wield an array of spirit energies. The Necromancers school - witches who harness the mystic dark arts to command powerful magic. Note that your school assignment is chosen at random, and will apply to all characters within your master account. For the purposes of the Festival of Witches, we recommend consolidating your individual participation to one character - so you can maximize your earned points and prizes most effectively! Note as well that the Festival does not take place within the Warp Girl accessible map of Niflheim, but within a special, magically-protected transformed version of the Witching Academy which keeps the monsters out of the Festival! To access the event area, you will need to speak with the Halloween Warper in Prontera. In order to determine which of the schools reign supreme among the Witches of Niflheim, a series of magical and skill-based competitions are hosted at specific time-based intervals. This is to allow each faction to compete broomstick-to-broomstick as individuals and as a team across a variety of challenges. In between competitions, you and your alliance-mates will have the opportunity to pass the time away in microevents, such as the return of Blackjack, or embark on a longer school-specific progression quest to continue to earn points or tickets for you and your team! Activities rotate every hour during the Festival of Witches - and can include everything from Festival-wide events involving both schools, or very specific monster or MVP challenges which will require collaborative effort! The headmasters of each school are eager to put the schools through a variety of challenges and paces - requiring you to be ready for anything which comes at you! So suit up, gear up, and gather your friends together as you embark on competitions, quests, and challenges for points, tickets, and prizes! Competition Times & Matches The Festival of Witches revolves around a series of three distinct activities: Hourly Festival minigames Individual microevents School Quests & Specialty Adventures The Hourly Festival minigames rotate every hour, and may come from one of the following general types of minigames: Town-wide minigames. These games involve the participation of players across all of the Festival map. Great timed events include the return of favorites such as Simon Says, Simon Sequence, and Poring Seek. You'll encounter these games one at a time - and once the time is up, game progress will finish and team + individual points will be tallied! You'll also have a chance here to earn individual prize tickets as well. Limited capacity minigames. The Halloween Challenge, Zombie Run, and Devil's Claw Machine represent offerings of minigames where participation in the hour is limited to those who are able to sign up first! Rounds have been expanded in terms of capacity and speed to accommodate a significant number of players, but participation will be limited! For those players who aren't able to make the hourly deadline and capacity for a given event, there are other great options available through the School Quest or other activities in the Festival of Witches. Hunting minigames. No Festival of Witches would be complete without having an opportunity to put your magical (or other!) skills to the test! When games of the hunting variety are open for the hour, suit up and get ready to go monster hunting - either in Vanilla or Unrestricted mode, which is revealed when the hourly hunting map opens up. However, the Witches love to trick one another, and in an unusual display of events - the President of the Witching Academies, Miriette, has decided to allow killstealing to take place only within this event (and reminds you that TalonRO's rules of killstealing still apply back in the mortal world!). Be careful to watch out for those MVPs, too! A few will spawn during the minigame, but killing them will be well worth the points! Gather up as many goodies and points as you can in this special area. All monsters will die when the hour time is up, and the team which accrued the most kills within the hour will win additional points! MVP defense minigames. Being masters of Spirit Channeling and Necromancy, the witches have called upon their most fiendish friends to assist in another special type of hourly minigame, the MVP defense! When this event begins, one team will be responsible for keeping their Dark Sorcerer MVP alive as long as possible, while the opposite team will be on the offensive - trying to find and kill the other team's Dark Sorcerer! If you are on the defensive team, every minute your school's MVP is alive will earn points along with spawned Treasure Chests! If you can find and break those chests open for your team, you'll earn individual points for your team plus an opportunity to earn yourself some wonderful Festival Tickets! Meanwhile, the team on the offensive should focus on finding and killing the other team's MVP (and steer clear of cracking open treasure chests - as that will cause your team to lose points!). If the offensive team successfully kills the MVP that hour, the roles will switch and the Dark Sorcerer will appear for the winning team, switching them from offense and now into defense! Each defensive team earns points through two methods: keeping your MVP alive, and finding/opening Treasure Chests. The offensive team will want to kill the other team's MVP as fast as possible so they can be in defensive mode and thus start earning points! Individual Microevents. A great way to pass the time in between hourly games! Play Blackjack in the Festival grounds, or speak with any of the festival goers to learn more about the Festival of Witches - and what other surprises and scares might lurk between the two rival schools! School Quests & Specialty Adventures. Once you've been assigned to a school team, you'll have the option to embark upon a school-specific quest series. Each respective school Headmaster - Azviar or Bryjar - will be able to help you get started, and each quest contains multiple parts and sections to earn individual and team points for your school! Complete various sections of the evolving quest to continue earning points in the Festival, as well as advance your school's team to further glory! Plus, other exciting events may unfold as the Festival progresses, depending on how Miriette decides the Festival is (or isn't!) solving the tie situation between the two rival schools. Miriette may decide to call upon an old and trusted friend in the Witching World - Kirkena - to offer her wise guidance as to the nature of the Festival of Witches for mortal participants, and to help players navigate a mysterious Labyrinth which seems to be the source of a particularly foul brand of evil magic... Points and Tickets are how the Festival keeps track of performance. In order to settle the score between each of the two rival schools, the work of each school alliance will contribute into a total point system during the Festival of Witches to see which school reigns at the top! Each minigame, microevent, and School Quest will earn you points and/or tickets. Points go toward settling the competition between each of the rival schools for team awards, while Festival Tickets reward you for individual contribution and can be applied toward prizes. For example, monsters during the Hunting Minigames may drop Festival Tickets as items, but the team member who kills the monster will be credited with the school points. Alternatively, specialty adventures may reward you with tickets, but possibly not team points depending on the nature of the mission - especially if the danger involves bigger matters than the rival Festival of Witches! School Points contribute toward determining which of the two schools will win the Festival of Witches this year. Every point may be awarded to either an individual player on a team while in the midst of an event, or distributed to the entire team when an event is won at the end of the allotted hour. In order to keep the fires of competition stoked magically hot, Miriette will be keeping a record of the scores hidden until the end of the Festival, when the winning school will be announced! The two Headmasters have also agreed to award special honorary Witching Degrees to the thirteen (13) most intrepid mortals who have helped to settle this year's tie. Individual prizes will be handed out to winners of various minigames who have demonstrated that their skills are on par with the best-in-class Witches of either school! Those individuals with the most points at the end of the entire Festival of Witches will be announced and receive a special, exclusive prize! Festival Tickets, as mentioned earlier, can be accumulated and traded in for a wide array of wonderful prizes this year! Only one type of ticket - the Festival Ticket - exists in the Festival, and this will be the ticket you'll want to collect! Earn these tickets throughout multiple events in the Festival, and trade them at the Festival to earn a variety of wonderful and magical prizes from the Witches as thanks for participating in this year's Festival. What secrets of the dark arts will you learn from earning tickets in this year's Festival? There's only one way to find out! Point Leaders for Individual, Games, and Schools The Festival of Witches features two distinct methods of performance tracking: Points and Tickets. Points are used to determine which school will win in this year's Festival of Witches. At the end of the Festival, the school with the most amount of points will win the Festival, and all players who are aligned with that school will receive a special team prize! Players can earn points on behalf of their team by participating in any of the hourly rotating minigames. Points can be earned either based on individual performance during a minigame (e.g.: killing a monster during the Hunting Minigame), or when a team wins an entire game at the end of an hour by earning the most points (e.g.: the team with the best defense time in MVP Defense). Performing well in each of the minigames will earn you points - so the more you participate, the more likely it is that you'll earn more points! Every point award will be mentioned to either the player receiving the points, or to the entire team / map when points are not player-specific, such as winning a town-wide minigame. Overall point scores for each school will be tallied, but kept hidden throughout the event. The winning school will be announced at the end Festival of Witches to keep the suspense running high! Special Witching Degree award prizes for top individual performers will be handed out at the end of the Festival of Witches as well, in addition to a winning school. Note that top-performance is character driven - so to compete in this area, we recommend participating in the Festival of Witches using a single character of your choice, as points are not tallied across all characters in your master account. Overall, thirteen (13) players will win for top performance in each of the following categories: The top-three (3) Town-Wide minigame / Limited Capacity minigame winners by accumulated points. Performance will be based on the number of points accumulated on your character for: Simon Says, Simon Sequence, Poring Seek, Halloween Challenge, Zombie Run, and Devil's Claw Machine. Points accumulated through Blackjack will NOT count toward this individual performance total. The top-three (3) Hunting minigame killers by accumulated points: Performance is based on the number of monsters killed during this minigame, with MVPs counting for substantially more points. This score is cumulative across both Vanilla and Unrestricted modes, so both Headmasters highly recommend playing in both versions to earn the maximum amount of points in this category! The top-three (3) MVP Defense Treasure Chest breakers by the number of chests opened during the minigame. Performance is based on the number of Treasure Chests opened while you are playing on defense (remember that opening Treasure Chests while on offense will cause you to *lose* points!). Keeping the MVP alive while on defense will contribute points toward your school score, while opening Treasure Chests will contribute points toward your individual performance scores in the Witching Degree awards. The single fastest party of four (4) in the Labyrinth when this minigame is made available. Be on the lookout for the Labyrinth minigame during the Festival of Witches. You'll be able to form parties of four (4) players for this minigame. The party of four (4) with the fastest completion time in the Labyrinth will win a Witches Degree Award this year as well! Overall, the winning school will be decided by Mirielle, the President of the Witching Academies, as a best-of-three score card across three distinct categories: The school with the highest cumulative point scores across all events, and with all players. The school who won the most hourly games overall in various minigames. The school whose members have the most individual Witches Degree Award recipients (there are 13, so that way there are no ties!) Finally, Festival Tickets can be earned throughout the minigames and microevents this year, allowing you to save them up and trade in for fantastic Festival of Witches prizes. You can earn these tickets through a variety of methods in each of the minigames or microevents, or in the Labyrinth event. These tickets are character-bound, and there is only one type of ticket available this year: the Festival Ticket. You may exchange these tickets with the Halloween Prizes NPC in the Niflheim Festival map, who can help you exchange these tickets for fantastic prizes and mentioned down below! Competition games are the essence of the Festival of Witches! The two schools of Spirit Channeling and Necromancy are ready to solve their rivalry in a series of magical showdowns designed to celebrate the essence of the Festival, but to also make it clear and decisive who among them are the most powerful Witches in Niflheim. This year's series of games are certain to involve creative problem solving, strategic force, and intrepid bravery - with each game designed to test a variety of skills and proficiency. This year's offerings are summarized below - but be certain to try them all to not only experience the full range of the Festival of Witches, but to also earn points for your school and to earn tickets for yourself! We hope that you enjoy this year's offerings and games - and we hope that you'll emerge as one of this year's Witches Degree Award winners! Festival of Witches List of Games Blackjack & Guess the Number The Festival of Witches makes Niflheim's Haunted Casino open for business! Play special party-based rounds of Blackjack rotating alongside a haunted Guess the Number minigame. Strike it rich for your opportunity to win tickets! This microevent will be available during the Festival, and recommended for when you're waiting in between hourly rounds of other events! Simon Says Copy the movements exactly as ordered - or else, you're out! Be sure to follow the instructions carefully in this minigame which is harder than it looks. If you win, points and tickets await - plus the school with the most wins will win additional team-wide points! Simon Sequence You've obeyed Simon, but can you find all the Simons in this meta-Simon experience?! If so, follow the sequence closely and run around the Festival for a chance to earn for you and your school. Poring Seek Mischievous Porionettes roam around the Festival when this minigame begins - can you be the one to kill the most within five minutes? You'll race against the clock and one another to see who will win the round, plus the school with the most wins will win additional team-wide points! Halloween Challenge Even the Witches of Niflheim recall this classic Halloween game involving candy - a witch's favorite! Fight through traps and snares and pitfalls as you work your way to collect points and tickets in this particularly challenging minigame. Zombie Run Survive against a horde of zombies, where your death is your school's biggest threat! Evade zombies in a successive round and win points and tickets along the way. Be certain to stay alive - since healing is off the table on this event! When you hear the cackle of Nightriff, you had best run as fast as you can! Note: Entering Zombie Run with either a mercenary or homunculus will result in your automatic ejection from the event. Mercenaries nor homunculi can be summoned during gameplay in Zombie Run. Devil's Claw Machine The devil's claw descends from below, grabbing up participants as it goes! Can you outlast the explosive grip of the Devil's Claw as it targets players across a limited area? If so, then you'll be rewarded for your efforts! Note: Entering the Devil's Claw Machine with either a mercenary or homunculus will result in your automatic ejection from the event. Mercenaries nor homunculi can be summoned during gameplay in Devil's Claw Machine. Monster Hunting Embark on a courageous monster hunt on behalf of your school and earn tickets and points! This year, each monster hunting map will be purely PvM as you fight against various Halloween-themed monsters. When the Monster Hunting minigame opens, it may either open in Vanilla or Unrestricted mode. Points and tickets for these modes will be the same, so we encourage you to try on both when either mode is available! MVP Defense Guard your MVP and find treasure chests when in defensive mode, or go on the hunt to fight the opposing team's MVP in offensive mode. The longer your MVP stays alive, the more points your school will earn. Team functions switch when an MVP is killed, meaning that the old defensive team will become the new offense in the next round, and so on! School Quest Embark on a series of quests affiliated with each of the schools for a chance to earn points for your team. A great experience awaits you, which is perfect for passing the time in between hourly minigame rounds! Begin your school's respective quest: For Spirit Channelers, speak with Azviar. For Necromancers, speak with Bryjar. The Labyrinth Once open, the Labyrinth is the home of some truly foul magic, and it will be up to you and your friends to follow Kirkena's suggestions as you navigate through the challenge. The goal of the Labyrinth is to guide your party of four through the maze as fast as possible successfully! It wouldn't be a proper Festival of Witches without some wonderful prizes! In addition to settling the score between the two rival schools, the President of the Witching Academies, Mirielle, will award prizes to members of the winning school's mortal faction! This announcement and ceremony will come at the end of the Festival - and until then, every point earned for your school will count toward your total score. Meanwhile, you'll have the opportunity to earn individual points, which will count toward your ranking as one of the top 13 participants to receive a Witches Degree Award, and with it an exclusive prize! Halloween wouldn't also be complete unless there were prized Trick or Treat Bags as well! Earn these bags in a number of ways, including through tickets, speaking with NPCs, and much more! What will you get inside of your bags this year? Finally, earning tickets this year will allow you access to a wide range of fantastic prizes, including new costumes, fantastic assorted prizes, and even new pet eggs! With only a single ticket type to keep track of, your tickets will add up into some wonderful prizes during the Festival of Witches. What you'll earn is up to the effort you put in, and a little bit of Halloween magical luck! Prizes and Quests for Rewards Trade in your Red Tickets at the Halloween Prizes NPC in the Festival of Witches for any of the following amazing prizes: Trade six (6) Red Tickets in for a Trick or Treat Bag!

Your choice of MVP Card! Cards eligible for this prize are those currently available from the Reward Guru Maya Purple is furthermore excluded from this list This year's Festival of Witches has many new and exciting features and challenging minigames - which is why we want to make sure you're aware of all of this year's important rules, guidelines, and dates so you can make the most of your haunted adventure! Be sure to review the list below so that you're well prepared for all of this year's rules and processes - and we hope that you have an incredible and memorable time in Niflheim! Important Rules and Dates To begin in the Festival of Witches, speak with the Halloween Warper NPC in Prontera. From there, she will warp you into the academy grounds, made up to look exactly like Niflheim this year. This is where the Festival is taking place. School alignment is chosen at random upon speaking with the Halloween Warper. Once sorted into a Witching School, this will be your school affiliation for the duration of the Festival. Furthermore, this affiliation will be applied to your entire Master Account, and all characters within your Master Account who participate in the Festival of Witches will share in this affiliation. The use of multiple Master Accounts during this event, or possession of such multiple accounts at anytime on TalonRO, is forbidden and is a ban-worthy offense per TalonRO's server rules. The Festival of Witches hourly minigames will rotate and be available every hour, including during other standard offerings, such as GMC hours, War of Emperium, and other regularly scheduled events. The Labyrinth minigame is exempt of the hourly rotation, as is the School Quest series of challenges. Entering either the Devil's Claw Machine or Zombie Run with either a mercenary or homunculus will result in your automatic ejection from the event. Mercenaries and Homunculi cannot be summoned during gameplay in either Devil's Claw or Zombie Run. A status bulletin board is available in the Festival area to remind you of your school affiliation, as well as a readout of what the current hourly minigame will be (or the next one, if one is currently not in progress). The colors of the game type correspond to color-themed map markers, available on your minimap. The board also features some fun news and weather across the land of the dead (so you can pack your umbrella when it's raining fire, perhaps?). The Festival of Witches recommends participating this year on a single character, selected from your available characters in your Master Account. This is so that you have the best chance of consolidating points to be one of the 13 Witches Award Recipients! Moreover, Red Festival Tickets are character-bound - and so it is recommended that you earn Tickets using a single character throughout the duration of the event. Many of this year's prizes are account-bound as well, including Trick or Treat Bags, costumes, and many prizes obtained through the event. The only way to obtain these exclusive events is to participate, allowing everyone the chance to earn wonderful prizes no matter your zeny status! Finally, the Festival of Witches will end on November 23rd at 6:00pm Midgard (server) time, and within a few days, the winning school will be announced, along with this year's school prizes and Witches Degree Award recipients! We sincerely hope that you enjoy the magic, frights, and wonder of the Festival of Witches - which is our delight to offer to you in this Autumn season! We're looking forward to the month ahead as we come into December, but we hope this will make for a very memorable and fun November! Thank you as always for your support of TalonRO, and as always, happy gaming!

    Previous events, such as Winter, New Years, and the advent calendar months allowed us to claim account-bound costumes we had earned on one game account on all game accounts. I think it especially reasonable to have this for Halloween as well, considering how difficult it is to get multiple costumes on multiple game accounts, how numerous and random the costumes are, and how costumes are so beloved on TRO. Not only that, but we are encouraged to do the event with just one character and game account because of the event points being character-bound; In a way it's punishing to pursue the costumes you want on the characters you want them, and not just because you'll likely fail to get them, and I don't think that's in the spirit of an event. Last year as well I devoted all of my time to one character and it's still a shame it was highly impractical (and pretty much impossible within reasonable devotion) to try to outfit my others or even say, try farming the dungeons with other characters. Maybe the reward npc, when it checks which costume you already have in your inventory, it can register which ones you've obtained and let you claim them on other characters? Maybe it could do this for last year's costumes as well?

    Hello my dearest Talonians! We are very proud to announce our very first weekly winter lottery! This is a free for all event, so I welcome everybody to join. There is a catch though! You have to be fast. Only the first 30 participants of each round will have a chance to win the prizes, so rush rush and get yourself your lucky number. It's a pretty simple game. You pick a number as a reply to this topic and hope it's the winning number. The winning number will be announced every Sunday, and a new round will start every Monday. "But Zelda, how do you pick the winning number?" Glad you asked. It's some very complicated math, but I shall try to explain it: Where: Ln = Lucky number Bb = Number of Boreas Bans Rr = Number of Reports Received Sb = Number of bugs Seiren found in his Code Bn = Number of times Boreas noped someone Hf = Number of times Howl flexed in the last 2 hours. ❅Rounds will be held weekly from today all the way to Christmas; ❅Only 30 participants allowed per round; ❅Participants for the last round may not participate on the immediate next one, however they can participate on the next one after that; ❅There will be one winner per round; ❅You may choose your number simply by replying to this topic; ❅Only the first person to pick a number will be considered a contestant. ❅ 1 Blue Unicorn pet; ❅ 1 GM box of your choosing; ❅ 5 cookie bags.

    Hi guys! I just wanna share one of my achievement as an artist. I am part of an art organization in my college called UP Painters' Club. We do an annual exhibit at galleries or malls. One of my most memorable moment was when my art was featured in someone's blog^^ I just remembered it again coz today is the last day of our annual exhibit and sadly I wasn't able to make a painting to pass hehehe. Next year I will<3 here's the link to T's blog https://anothernightonmars.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/life-of-t-uppc/comment-page-1/#comment-27 Mine's the Nature's Light Amidst the Darkness. 4x3ft Oil Canvas Painting.

    hello everyone. i don't have idea how to start a professional and serious topic but here we go. I'm ohseok and im new on the server : ) I don't know what to say, idk i really suck at this, even in real life orz. forgive me for my bad social skills. I was looking for some friends or clients, both are welcome x) I don't do headshots or non-full body stuff because i think my strenght is in the body itself, not the faces! I'll add full composition examples and prices soon, with backgrounds/effects SLOTS : CLOSED FOR THE MOMENT. 5 SLOTS TAKEN :c EXAMPLES: Since i don't draw RO characters usually(or anime either), i don't have more examples for now. eventually i'll add more FULL BODY character (c) Orchestra Single character price is 30M or 30 talon coins, Full body and fully shaded. You can choose the pose if you want. If you want a couple, ask me! I CAN DRAW: Male Female Robots, armors (my poor hands) NSFW/SFW If you are interested, leave a comment below! im starting to regret SORRY IF MY ART ISNT THAT gOOD FOR THIS
