    Welcome to March on TalonRO! In our latest monthly patch, we're delighted to incorporate new features, helpful new content additions, squash some bugs, and rotate our Tam Tam's Gift and Monthly Costume Box offerings! We're also pleased to introduce a wide range of new content to keep your experience fresh, challenging, and fun. This latest patch is designed to keep the game you love full of great updates, which we hope that you will enjoy! Please take a moment to review all of our latest changes below - and as always, happy gaming! Our March update includes a large compliment of gameplay changes, which we hope that you will enjoy! This includes the introduction of the Biolabs Level 4 dungeon instance - the Wolfchev Laboratory - along with group of related items, monsters, and quests all designed to enable exciting exploration into the deepest level of the laboratory! Plus, we're happy to unveil greater choice options with our slotted middle headgears. Previously, slotted middle headgears gave very specific stat bonuses - but with the March patch, we're allowing you to enchant the middle headgear of your choice with either a STR, AGI, or INT bonus! We hope that you enjoy these and our other gameplay changes listed below. Gameplay Changes All item descriptions will now show if the item is listed as an SQI Bonus Ingredient. Furthermore, the existing notifications on SQI Ingredients and NPC-buyable Items have been moved to the top of the item's description for maximum visibility. Special thanks to @Kirsch for work on this addition! Slotted middle headgears may now possess any of the three previously available stats (STR, AGI, INT)! All existing slotted middle headgears have been updated to this new format, where the stat bonus is applied using an enchant stone. To craft a slotted middle headgear, you will now need to go through the manufacturing process. All slotted middle headgears (except for the base versions) have been removed from the Reward Guru, but can easily be made by using a "base" slotted middle headgear + the unslotted middle headgear you wish slot. (Note: these "base" slotted headgears will continue to be available in the Reward Guru and are at the top of the middle headgear list in the Guru). To craft the slotted middle headgear of your choosing, you will now need: One of the "base" slotted middle headgears: Sunglasses [1] for STR, Contact Lenses [1] for AGI, or Glasses [1] for INT The unslotted middle headgear you wish to slot. Go and visit Chiqita in Prontera (prt_in 45, 97) and she will help you to make the slotted version. Depending on what base slotted middle headgear you used, your new item will get the proper enchant stone applied to it. All base middle headgears, as well as the non-slotted middle headgears, now mention the Chiqita crafting possibilities in their relative item descriptions. The refine rate requirement to create slotted versions of Port Malaya's Kalasag, Buwaya Sack Cloth, Bangungot Boots of Nightmare and Bakonawa Scale Armor have been reduced from a +9 requirement to +8. Additionally, the drop rate of the non-slotted versions of the above listed items have been substantially increased! HP and ATK values of iz_dun05 monsters (Sedora, Pot Dofle, Sropho and King Dramoh) have been lowered slightly, while EXP values have been increased. The bonus drop rate of the Old Card Album item from the Kraken MVP has been significantly increased. The drop rate of Saphien's Armor of Ocean has been increased from the Kraken MVP. The March Patch introduces the new Aegir Set, a new item combo consisting of 4 pieces of equipment: the Aegir Helm, Aegir Armor, Aegir Cloak and Aegir Shoes: The item combo effects have been modified only slightly, with the Water Resist bonus having been reduced from 50% to 30%. Each individual item possesses a combination bonus when wearing with an Aegir Helm. An additional combination is available when wearing the entire complete set. These items are dropped from the following monsters: Aegir Helm is dropped by Sedora. Aegir Armor is dropped by Red Eruma. Aegir Cloak is dropped by Kraken. Aegir Shoes is dropped by Giant Octopus. Biolabs Update The official Wolfchev Laboratory quest and instance have now been added! To enter Biolabs 4 and access the new Wolfchev Laboratory instance, players must have completed the Dangerous Rumors quest. To begin, have the party leader speak with Wolfchev outside of his laboratory in Human Experimentation Laboratory B4 (lhz_dun04 151, 276) to create this instance. Players who previously had access to the Biolabs 4 map will already have access to the map as well as the instance. There are special rewards for killing all of the LH3 and LH4 MVPs throughout this instance dungeon. These rewards can be obtained at the end of the instance should you qualify for them. The cooldown of the Wolfchev Laboratory instance is 72 hours. This cooldown is applied across your entire master (forum) account. Should you leave the instance while participating in an active run, you will be unable to reenter for the remainder of the instance duration. All spawned LH3/LH4 MVPs throughout this instance will have lower item droprates than those found in the non-instanced version. Paladin Randel now drops Gigantic Lance[1], albeit at a lower drop rate. You may also obtain it by defeating all the LH3/LH4 MVPs from the Wolfchev Laboratory instance. Its effects have also changed as balanced to our pre-Renewal environment with the following characteristics: Two-handed spear, Can only be equipped by Lord Knights, Now possesses 1 slot instead of 0 slots, 475 Weight and 150 ATK, ASPD - 10%, When using Spiral Pierce, knock back your enemies 4 cells, When unequipping, you lose 500 sp, For every refine above +4, increase ASPD by 1%. Professor Celia now drops Salvage Cape[0], also at a lower drop rate. You may also obtain it by defeating all the LH3/LH4 MVPs from the Wolfchev Laboratory instance. Its effects have also been balanced for our pre-Renewal environment: Garment with 1 DEF, Can only be equipped by High Priests and High Wizards, Item still has 0 slots, Allows usage of Soul level 2, Upon casting Soul, auto cast Illusionary Shadow level 1, While equipped, all SP usage will be doubled, When equipping, SP - 500, When unequipping, SP - 1500. The Giant Crossbow item no longer drops from Gypsy Trentini. This item is exclusively available from Cecil Damon. All LH4 MVPs now properly drop the S-Grade Coin Bag. All LH3 regular mobs now drop the Will of Warrior item. The LH4 Gear Exchange and Enchanting have been implemented as well! Gather Blood Thirst, Will of Warrior and Ghost Chill to purchase LH4 gears or enchant them with powerful stones. The enchant possibilities have been changed from their Renewal versions, which effectively is realized as lower stat enchantment possibilities. The GM Guild in-game has been given an update! The GM guild has been retitled to "TalonRO Staff" and given a new emblem. Many thanks to @GM Lance for the shiny new emblem as well. As with most of our monthly updates, we've taken to squashing a few small bugs to ensure your experience is seamless! We hope that these changes are helpful to you as part of TalonRO's ongoing commitment to work hard toward making your gaming time with us excellent! Read on for our latest round of fixes and edits. Bug Fixes The following items have been fixed to possess their proper elemental magic attack boost: Mask of Fotia - ID #18737 Mask Of Aegir - ID #18799 Alchemy Glove [1] - ID #28543 A party check feature has been added when a new portal to Geffenia has been opened. This is designed to prevent the menu from freezing up during selection. The Wave Challenge has been optimized to work more efficiently. Players will not measurably notice this during gameplay, though please report any inconsistencies or potential bugs you may find, if any!

Keep the sand out of your boots as you explore around the Morroc Fields region, battling against familiar monsters and exploring the vast swaths of desert which comprise this enormous southern region.

    Hello, hello! I'm new to the server (just a few days on it so far) and have been encouraged to share my art here, so I'm going to post some of my work! I did try to make a thread before this and had formatting issues something fierce, so hopefully this works out better than the first time... On tumblr, I actually run an RO-based blog. Namely, I run an Ask Blog for my RO OCs (original characters). You can find the blog HERE, if you're curious. I have the characters in-game, too, so you might see them around sometime. Here's some of my more recent works (mostly sketch stuff, and a few color things I was able to do before the Photoshop issue): As a note, I may put up a shop eventually, but I can only do sketchwork, not digital work. My computer is old and will no longer run/install Photoshop, and I can't get my tablet monitor to work with free programs. So for the last nine or ten months or so, I've only been able to messily color things by hand with a mouse. And that's a paaain. (But I might offer messy color for chibis. We'll see.) Nonetheless, I hope you like my work~! And I'd love to hear back if people would be interested in the possibility of me opening an art shop here. Thanks!

    Hi everyone! *____* I thought I'd present myself by meandering into the art thread as an introductory post ~ My name is Callia and i'm the exemplary definition of a centenarian 'oldschool' iRO player. I recently started playing again after nostalgia struck me right in the shinzou and now I've found myself crash landing into this magical community. ♥ I look forward to sharing some of my coco-esque art style with you fluffies and meeting some of you in-game! Now without further delay I present to you my art boutique. Oddly titled: Callia's Art Alley ~ Send your refs and I'll design the chibicoco / sketchicoco style in your RO personas! Slots Open: 1. 2. 3.

    Edit: ~*TRADITIONAL MEDIA POSTED!!*~ Hey guys! Like I mentioned before, I'm really bad at introductions haha! I heard that Talon had a pretty nice art section going on and I just thought I'd join in on the art sharing! Sooooooo *throws art* Time for the more older art~ As you can see, my style is anime mixed with American/Western features with vomit coloring LOL. I'm actually more of a traditional artist so my digital work needs some tweaking (a lot of tweaking). But either way, I hope you guys enjoyed! Maybe one day I'll open up shop if anyone is interested! Have a nice day! Thank you for viewing! <3 ~~~~~~~EDIT~~~~~~~~ Alright time for some traditional art vomit!!! *THROWS MORE ART* MMMMMMMMM alright! Truth be told, I really do prefer doing traditional work over digital! I just love the physical feel of a paintbrush in my hand, the smell of paint and the noise of the water when I clean my brush. *^* It makes me, personally, feel more accomplished about my work! My main medias are pencil, watercolor and copic markers! So much goodness~ But alright that's it for now! Still pondering the idea of opening commissions and the prices and all that. Maybe I'll open a test run soonish~ Have a nice day!!! ~*Edit*~ Some recent commissions~

    Winter has just passed, which means I stocked up on as much hearty food as possible to get me through hibernation. One of my absolute FAVORITE things to hunt is Savage (or Gullinbursti, even! Yum!); I mean, you get all that wonderful meat and also the hide can be made into really scratchy clothing to gift to people you don’t like during the holidays! There’s no downsides, as long as you can take them down. You non-bears might want to enlist the help of a large hunting party for this. Once you’ve got the Savage down, take it over to a butcher to get it all chopped up into delicious bits… or butcher it yourself, if you’ve got the stomach for it. I am totally capable of butchering it all by myself! I just… want to give the butchers of Midgard something to do. For this winter, I went for the tastiest bit of the Savage I can think of-- the Savage tummy! Who can resist all that wonderful fatty goodness? It’s definitely got the Calories I need to keep myself full during the long hibernation I’ve got waiting for me. I chose braising as my cooking method because I’m very lazy, and I need to cook it in a method that will let me nap as it cooks. Now, I’ll go step-by-step through this, so it should be pretty easy to follow along, even for the timider cooks among you. The measurements are are in both US and metric units, because I am pawsitively the most generous bear around (also I was forced). For those of you nervous about the alcohol in the sake and mirin, I assure you that it cooks out. Go obtain some Savage belly. I recommend heading to Prontera Field (or Dewata Dungeon, if you’re craving the high-end Gullinbursti stuff) and taking one down. Don’t be too rough with it, and DO NOT use fire spells! You don’t want to destroy the good cuts of meat or, Heaven forbid, char it before it’s time to cook! Have it butchered however you like, freeze or sell the cuts you don’t need, and keep that belly out to be cooked! … or store-bought is fine, too. Here is a full list of the ingredients you’ll need for this: Around 2 lb (~0.9 kg) of pork belly or a bit more, with the skin left on 1 cup (~240 mL) of sake 1 cup (~240 mL) of mirin 1 cup (~240 mL)of water ½ cup (~120 mL) of soy sauce ½ cup of white sugar (~115 g)(golden brown sugar is fine, too, for a different flavor!) ~6 scallions ~10 garlic cloves A ~2-inch (~5cm) knob of ginger 1 shallot Place the pork belly on a cutting board, and roll it up lengthwise so that it is a fat, short roll. Use some butcher’s twine to secure it every ½ - ¾ inches. Make sure it won’t unroll! Preheat your oven to 275 °F. In a medium-size pot (big enough to hold the pork belly), add the water, sake, mirin, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic cloves (whole is fine). Roughly chop the scallions and slice the ginger and add to the pot. Split the shallot in half and toss it in the pot, too. Heat the mixture over high heat until it boils. Add the pork belly and cover with a lid left a little bit open. Put the whole pot in the preheated oven and cook, turning the pork belly every 20-30 minutes, until the pork is totally tender. Put a thin knife through the roll, and if it meets little resistance, it should be done. This will take 2.5 – 4 hours, depending on the size of your roll. It is VERY easy to overcook, so keep an eye on this and keep testing! Here’s a picture after it’s done braising: Put the lid completely on the pot, or transfer the whole belly and liquid to a sealed container. Place it in the refrigerator and allow it to cool completely. I leave it overnight. If you try to cut it while it is hot, it will just melt—which is yummy, but uncontrollable! Remove the container from the refrigerator, and place the pork belly on a cutting board. Strain the liquid left behind, throwing away the solid portions and retaining the liquid as a sauce for the meat. Remove the butcher’s twine, and cut the belly into thin pieces. You’ll notice the spiral in the center of the pieces from the rolling (and that I overcooked it a bit… I told you it was easy to do that). Store the cut belly and sauce in the refrigerator until ready to cook. You’re done! Ish! There are many ways to prepare this now. This makes a good topping for homemade ramen, if you want to put in the work for that! Even adding it to some cup ramen will really make the dish look… well, appetizing I guess? I like to make rice bowls out of this, so head over to get some rice (conveniently, a Straw Rice Bag is dropped by Event Gullinbursti, so go hassle those GMs to spawn one in an invasion or something). Steam it, and get ready to prepare your rice bowl: Reheat the pork belly slices in a skillet until they are tender, flipping them with a spatula to cook both sides. You’ll know they’re tender enough if you can cut them with your spatula. You can also drizzle some of the sauce on them to give it some extra yummy flavor. Prepare your toppings for your rice bowl. I like some scallions (which I have left over from the sauce) and jalapeños on mine. Also reheat a small amount of the sauce (around ¼ to ½ cup). Scoop rice into a bowl. Chop the meat into small pieces and place it on top of the rice. Add your toppings, and drizzle some of the sauce over the whole thing. You’re done! Ish! Again! You can go even further, if you want… I like to add some Japanese mayonnaise, as well! You can go EVEN further if you want, too… I also like to use a torch to give the whole thing a good char, and it gives the pork and peppers a great flavor. Also it makes all the toppings really hot! Now you’re ACTUALLY done! I usually add green onion AFTER I torch it, by the way. I don’t like the green onions to be charred. Here’s a picture! I hope that sounds good to everyone! There are so many other ways to prep your braised Savage belly that this recipe will keep you entertained for a while, I hope! With all my love, GM Kuma

    It's amusing to watch people attempt to defend the use of cheats in this situation. If it was another guild cheating, the result would be the same. The people currently defending the cheaters would be up in arms and mocking the cheating guild. This is topic is actually fairly tame, in that regard. 1. Cheating is against the rules. You cheat, you get banned. Not sure why this is even discussed. People want the GM's to hold a public hearing and display all their evidence to prove the cheaters were cheating? Ridiculous. They already stated that the players were banned (cheating), the reason for the ban (3rd party programs), the specifics of the issue (autopot), and the investigation that came to this conclusion. 2. The leader and co-leader were cheating? That makes it worse (in my opinion). If they would do this they wouldn't hesitate to allow others to. 3. Autopot isn't that different? Not that it matters since it's illegal and would result in a ban anyway but autopot is pretty advantageous. It allows a player to completely heal to a set state as quickly as the server will allow. This requires no effort on the part of the user. That means the players can focus on spamming skills and positioning and completely ignore their HP bar. That's same as cutting out 50% of the game's difficulty. Judging by the videos, the leader was playing a frontline prof. This is probably one of the top 3 classes that benefits from this advantage. I'm sorry to see the guild go as I was hoping to get back into WoE but I think people should grow up. The use of cheats ruins any sense of "skill" or "superiority" the users believe they have.

    It's not that weird really. If you are the opposing guild and the other guild uses cheats against you, that's not exactly enjoyable. It's unfortunate that it affects WoE but there can be no excuse for cheating at all. If you cheat in a single-player game that's all fine. If you cheat in a multiplayer game which affects others that's not fine of course. People are claiming WoE needs to be improved and asking us for solutions but at the same time they are using these cheats. It's no wonder that we prefer working on PvM content, really. If you want to improve WoE, start with yourself and play clean.

    Another not related to RO art but here's the art I did for our cosplay cafe's main poster. It looks so different from the recruitment poster since I only had 9 hours to finish the sketch, lineart, and color it. Apparently, the deadline for this is until next week so my cramming was in vain. Nevertheless, I'm still glad at the result. Yes, she is our mascot cosplaying as Rem from Re: Zero. The costume isn't entirely accurate Edit: I added the sketch version side by side as a comparison. I think my sketches are 100x prettier than the final artworks.. Edit 2: Her hand bothers me a whole lot. I'll fix it when I have time

    Alright, I have bitten the bullet! I'm going to attempt to open an art shop here. For now, this is going to be just in a test-drive mode to gauge interest. And since I'm still a fledgling in TalonRO, I feel that a little extra zeny might help me get my feet on the ground here. I will be selling sketchwork only for now. If you've seen my gallery thread, you know I have a situation with being unable to color things/use tablet. I MAY, in the future, offer color chibis, but bear in mind that they will have to be done completely with a mouse in a free art program, which is not easy to accomplish. I will update this thread if/when I offer those. To start, I am going to open two slots. (First come, first serve.) I will be offering headshot (+shoulders) fully-shaded sketches for 6 mil/5 TC a piece and must be paid in advance! (If you chose to use the Mail Box option, please send the payment to Celeste Acacia! Thanks!) Excessive/complicated headgear will possibly cost a bit more, so bear that in mind. I am also not familiar with many of the Talon headgears, so please provide as much reference as possible! The sketches will look something like this: Things I need from you: Character Reference: Hair/eye color: Headgear Reference: Brief Personality: Other details you want to note (posing/expression/character quirks): Sketch Color (if desired): Slots: 1. Alexsu [ Refs received ] [ Not paid ] 2. [closed] Waiting List: [Closed] Completed!: 1. amii. 2. Mei Magnolia 3. Alteisen 4. Ciwo Thanks and I hope to be sketching some of your characters soon!

    So because other servers allow cheats, it means that on our server, where it's clearly mentioned in the rules that these are illegal, we should allow certain guilds to use these tools? While other guilds play fair and follow the rules? That makes no sense at all. It's either legal or illegal. If it were legal, we would have told all the guilds they can use it and even provide a download for it. That way everyone would have the same advantages, rather than just one guild who decides to use it. However, it is illegal. That simply means that if you break these rules you will face the consequences.

    My intention is not to burn anyone. Seiren and me spent months on the new panel and some people simply post the usual "I don't like the white color" feedback after testing it for two minutes. On top of that they don't even bother to read my other post and just ask the same questions over and over. I don't expect much anymore, but I was at least hoping for constructive feedback for once. Luckily some players contacted me through a forum pm and actually brought up some good points, which were added to the new panel already. Thanks for that and kudos to everybody who reported bugs so far!

    you have rules. you confirmed that you read the rules. or you follow the rules, or you break them. cheating is cheating. simple as that. they knew the rules and decided to break them to have advantage over others. It does not matter what any of you say about other servers - this server is for fair play - the banned guys did not follow fair play and decided to take unfair advantage over others. True skillers do not cheat - because they dont have to.. "others also do it" is like excuse from my 5yo son..

    I suggest allowing Grape juice to be enabled in Vanilla mode. Hopefully having cheaper consumables/supplies will motivate more players to try out vanilla woe, because consumables are just getting too ridiculously expensive lately. Normally players try out Vanilla woe first instead of Unrestricted because getting Vanilla gears are usually much much cheaper than Unrestricted, yet the supplies in Vanilla are actually more expensive to get than Unrestricted's. I know that Vanilla is to be kept as vanilla as possible, however Piece of cakes are also buffed/customized as Grape Juices, yet they are still enabled in Vanilla while Grape Juice is not. Just wanted to suggest something that can somehow help the vanilla woe scene grow. God Bless, Anfy

This guild is separate from the main Desert Dojo guild thus is not mandatory for all the members of the main guild to join the WoE NT scene but would appreciate more firepower. We use Discord during WoE (not required but would help to follow commands/shots) and an attendance sheet for organize party setting. Now we need certain key classes to achieve complete victory. The following are what we need: Offense class > Gunslinger Breaker Star glad Sonic Blow/ Grimtooth status/Crit Lock assassins Asura Monks Shield Boomerang Crus / Grand Cross Crus Chickun/Knights Final Strike Ninjas Pest Alchemist Bolter Super Novice Stripper/Close Confine Rogues Support class > Dispell and LP sage (IN DEMAND) Devo Crus (IN DEMAND) Trapper Hunter (currently full) Linkers (IN DEMAND) Full Support Priest (IN DEMAND) Dancers Bards Pre-cast Wiz (IN DEMAND) Pitching/Coating/Planting Alchemist Sooooo there you go. If you need an invite just look for an officer from Desert Dojo so we can send you an invite or message me here or an ingame mail. Thank you! <3

    Yea, I think i was looking at minstrel references, and one of them had a pipe and I got confused and thought it was your char with a pipe. Alrighty, here's what I got. Hope you like it! Once I finish up more of the requests in here, I'll add some backgrounds to them all on my background practice day on Saturday, so if you guys want a specific setting, just say so, otherwise I'll just pick a place at random. I'm doing this one next, then working my way down the thread. I'll maybe have a rough tonight but I'll for sure finish up by tomorrow night.

    Hello, my name is Seintz also known as Me You and This Banana on the @main chat. First of all, I do understand that there're many beginner's guide out there. But I do notice there're still some common knowledge that has not been written in those guides and I want to make sure that new player at least know what they're doing and how does the server work. -- 1. You need at least a farmer, a merchant, and supports on your account(s). People usually have different gameplay that they enjoy. You want to be a sturdy Paladin or bolter Professor? Great! But the thing is, those characters usually not great as a farmer and most likely require a lot of zeny to be built. While those classes have ability to farm, in early game it might not be as efficient as dedicated farmer classes like Stalker or Sniper with decent gears. A merchant is also required so you can buy or sell stuff to NPC with better value and vend your loots. Some support characters such as Priest, Sage (for weapon endowment) and Soul Linkers (for Ka-skills and Spirit-skills) are really helpful both for your farming or general activities. "But, Banana, my main class can also farm faster and better than Stalker or Sniper!" 2. Build your farmer characters first. Your main character for MvP, PvP, or WoE, will not work without proper gears. Level up a recommended classes to 99, go trans it into a dedicated farmer classes, and farm until you have decent amount of zeny. After that, you might build your main character. "I farm so much, my farmer character is becoming my main character." 3. Do NOT create Rogue as your first character. Read this awesome article from @~Lozaki~, picking Rogue as your first character is a bad idea. Rogue leveling spot is very limited compared with other classes and usually not-so-useful in party. Picking Hunter, Wizard, or Priest might be the best idea since they can work with basically less than 100k zeny to start some decent farming AND leveling at the same time. "Rogue is definitely the best starter class!" 4. Sell your very first Talon Coin for zeny. Usually, selling Talon Coin might not be the best value you can get from it, but trust me, you really need those zeny at first. A Talon Coin usually sells about 1.15 million zeny and can helps you a lot in the beginning. You might consider buying these items: - Healthy amount of Meats, Grape Juices, and Fly Wings. - Pantie and Undershirt, the best combo ever made for beginners. - Basic NPC gears. - Healthy amount of elemental arrows if you're playing Archer classes. - Very Very Strong elemental weapon(s) if you're playing melee classes. - Sting Hat for melee classes. This headgear is obviously not the most ideal hats for you, but it is very useful and only costs around 50k in the beginning. STR + 2, VIT + 1, MDEF + 3 and 5 DEF? Yes, please. "Silly Banana, why would you sell your Talon Coins?!" 5. Some solo farming and leveling guide: For melee classes: - Level 20-35: Payon Dungeon 1 or Wolves (Payon-South-South). Paydun is more cconvenient while Wolf can generate Strawberry for some easy zeny. - Level 35-55: Metalings (Lighthalzen-North). Simply just for the levels. - Level 55-75: Siroma (Ice Dungeon 1) or Myst Cases (Toy Factory 2). Siroma is for the levels and Myst Cases for the Chiquita's Jewelry Box and Piece of Cake. - Level 75-99: Hill Winds (Ice Dungeon-South-East). Each Hill Wind gives you around 1k zeny. Migh require VVS Earth weapon. For range classes: - Level 20-35: Same with above. - Level 35-45: Metalings. Same with above. - Level 45-75: Geographer (Einbroch-North) or Glast Heim Prison. Geographer is really good if you're planning to relax a bit since there's no aggresive monster there. Glast Heim Prison generates slightly better experience since there're more monsters there, more dangerous, and better loots. - Level 75-85: Glast Heim Church. Decent experience and loots. Beware of the Hunter Fly and Mimic, though. - Level 85-99: Sting (Glast Heim Church-West-Northeast). Nice experience and nice loots. Your plan here is to combine BOTH leveling and loots at the same time in early game. While there are better area for leveling and or farming, these area is pretty accessible with cheap gears. "There are better farming and leveling zones than that, duh!" ---

    T I L A P A T O O T Y some IGNs: Zab Zab Sus Kala ZZoe Hi! I've been stuck in an artblock since Dec 2016 but here are some of the artwork i have made last year. I intend to sell artwork in the near future so i could improve my craft (also to get out of this stupid artblock) and earn a little zeny along the way. I won't always be open since I'm a little busy at the moment. But for now, please help me out with pricing (if anyone would be interested to buy some at all, that is)! D: So here they are, i hope you like them. PS. I might not be able to show them all but here's my DA.

    opening up bloody branches on farming map for the purpose of pissing off everyone on the map? I already understood that the person who wrote it is sick, but you may want to know, that this is very bad idea. Bloody branches and Dead branches were made for you to kill MvP or bunch of mobs, not to irritate people - on most servers I have been to, this kind of behaviour was considered rulebreaking/mobdropping.. just immagine, that some new player just got his hand on IP after two months on wolves and he wants to start farming - full of excitement that he is now on good route for LKH, and suddenly there are 6 MvPs running wild, killing everyone on sight.. how funny does this feel? If it would be so much fun, why dont we have PvP enabled in farming maps? same thing - lets kill someone who wants to earn something and who wants to have fun? no sorry, this is just wrong.. these people are simply stupid, unable to make friends who would play with them, so the option they have, is irritating others - like a little bored kids, who go from car to car letting air of all the tires - yeah so much fun, all the people in street will be late for work.. if you want to discourage new people from playing on the server and get the same reputation as the person you quoted, go ahead - mobdrop, piss off everyone, kill ppl in safespot, rip off people by selling nonslot items for slotted prices, troll everyone and eventually make them search for a new server.. does it still sound funny to you?

    Hello. I evolved my pet recently (a Desert Wolf) and noticed it does not have an proper image. It instead shows an image of a poring. I wondered if all eovlved pets are missing this image, and my suggestion is to make an Art Contest for evolved pets. I've seen the latest contests for loading screens, title screen, etc, and noticed there aren't many entries (not as many as I expected), so drawing a single monsters is way easier than an entire scenery, so more people would submit their entries. I'm saying that for personal reasons. I can't make nice drawing like those in the title screen and etc, but a single monster, that I would totally give a try. Thanks in advance for your time.
