    Spring and April arrive at last on TalonRO! The first patch of the spring season heralds some wonderful new things to be looking forward to in April, including our upcoming Battlegrounds Refresh, plus game changes, bug fixes, and much more! We're also pleased to introduce a wide range of new content to keep your experience fresh, challenging, and fun. Please take a moment to review all of our latest changes below - and as always, happy gaming! Our Battlegrounds mode is currently undergoing a special refresh! Based on your feedback and thoughts, we're taking Battlegrounds back into the shop for a quick renovation - and we're unveiling the fun with a special live Battlegrounds Community Event on Sunday, April 30th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm Midgard (server) time! More information about this special event will appear some time before April 30th, but expect the GM Team to also be in on the fun for the kickoff event as well! In the meanwhile get ready for some outstanding additional features, such as automatic queues, special WoE-like timeslots with server-wide announcements, dynamic rotating modes of play, randomizing team functions, and much more! We'll be unveiling the magic toward the end of the month, so get excited and get ready to battle! Battlegrounds Refresh Battlegrounds (BG) is currently undergoing a refresh. Battlegrounds will be offline and unavailable from the beginning of the month until Sunday, April 30th with our kickoff live event. New features and suggestions will appear in the newly updated BG - we hope that you'll enjoy them! The BG Coin Exchange NPC may now be temporarily found in Lighthalzen during this refresh period. Please note: coins will lose their value in the new BG system, so coin exchange during this refresh period is encouraged. Battlegrounds will return on Sunday, April 30th, beginning with a live community BG event from 4:00pm - 6:00pm. Details will appear in our Official Events section later in the month before the event date. 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 We've merged multiple updates together to various official quests, including the addition of questlog entries across a wider number of in-game quests. Vending spot allocation in Prontera, Payon, and the Prontera Mall have been further randomized. This will help reduce the possibility of vendspot holding for prime locations in these cities to ensure greater access and distribution. Vanilla PvM modes have been relaxed slightly to include a broader array of essential PvM items. For example, Orc's Memory and the Vanilla Endless Tower now allow the usage of all healing items, event headgears, custom non-MVP and custom non-Miniboss cards. Coins related to the Malangdo series may now be traded. The following items are now able to be added into a Buying Shop: Elven Arrow Quiver Hunting Arrow Quiver A Class Coins B Class Coins C Class Coins D Class Coins E Class Coins Seagod's Anger Delicious Jelly 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 We've merged multiple updates together to various official quests - this will help ensure that a larger number of official quests run smoothly, and fixes a wide variety of potential issues with these quests. This month's Tam Tam's Gift region takes us into a classic dungeon worth re-exploring: the Al de Baran Clock Tower! Explore through the many levels and mysteries of this old and familiar terrain, battling against monsters locked away in the mysterious city to the north. Grab yourself a clock tower key and fight against this month's Champion Monsters and earn yourself valuable coins, additional experience, and much more! Tam Tam's Gift Region April's region includes the Al de Baran Clock Tower maps. This region excludes alde_dun04. This month's Champion Monsters are as follows: Rideword Arclouze Drainliar Clock Alarm Finally, no monthly patch would be complete without our latest monthly costume box! With our new graphic below, you'll be able to see which costumes are part of our classic series, all the way up to which in the monthly box are truly so rare that they might as well be legendary! The Rainbow Star Costume returns to our monthly costume box, as does the Clock Casket Costume - both of which have been popular finds! However, some unique 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! April'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! April 2017 Monthly Costume Box This month's costume items include the following Rainbow Star Costume Clock Casket Costume Long Rabbit Ears Costume Shura King's Pledge Costume Cheshire Cat Ears Costume War Princess Ribbon Costume Black Cat Hood Costume Helm of Abyss Costume Kobold Archer Cap Costume Nekomimi Kafra Headband Costume Safety Helmet Costume We hope that you enjoy this month's latest updates - and, as always, happy gaming from all of us on TalonRO!

    TalonRO is pleased to announce the release of two exciting new features designed to bring the community experience to the forefront! Guilds are an essential cornerstone of Midgard - whether you're getting together under the common cause to claim your own castle in War of Emperium (WoE), banding a group together to take on entry-level or end-game challenges, or forming a group of close friends to stay social, the guild experience is an essential part of the community - and today we're pleased to honor this special camaraderie with the release of the Guild Directory resource. This one-stop area features a full listing of all TalonRO-approved guilds, with information supplied by guild leaders themselves! Recruiting, browsing information, and learning all about the variety of amazing guilds on TalonRO has never been in a single resource quite like this! Prospective members can browse to find a guild that fits their styles, while guild leaders can supply information and recruit all from within the Guild Directory. We're also delighted to release the new character signature generator! This new feature allows you to create a signature of your own current TalonRO character associated with your Master Account. Simply enter the name of your character, select your style from one of several options, and voila! You'll have your own custom TalonRO signature with character details ready to go in no time at all. Best of all, it'll update automatically with current information coming right from TalonRO - ensuring that your character is being proudly displayed to the world just as you'd see them while in-game! Read on below for all of the features, or begin to explore now and see the world of TalonRO's incredible community! Located in the Control Panel under Databases -> Guild Directory, this new resource starts with a full listing of all of TalonRO's approved guilds. Once a guild leader adds their guild to the directory and completes some basic information, the guild will appear in the compendium of information! From there, you can browse features - such as when the information was last modified, if a guild is recruiting, whether or not a guild has their own website or voice chat service, plus their general interests! Guild names are color coded by the difficulty of gameplay they typically participate in as well: Green Guilds are those skewed toward early-game content, Orange Guilds are those that participate in mid-game / all-around modes, and Red Guilds are those which exclusively cater to end-game content. This will help with the selection of the guild that's right for you - or see what other guilds are up to the next time you see their members around Midgard! Browse Guilds View a full listing of registered and active guilds on TalonRO. Search for a specific guild, view the entire list, and sort by distinctive features, such as: Guilds who are openly recruiting new members, Voice chat availability and use, Guild-run websites, General interests, including gameplay styles and more With powerful filtering and search options, finding the right guild has never been easier. Are you looking for guilds which specialize in end-game PvM content? What about a great Vanilla WoE guild? How about a social guild that’s great for newcomers to TalonRO? The Guild Directory has you covered! By using the dropdown feature, you’ll be able to browse and sort through all of the guilds in the Guild Directory. Do you recall seeing a guild in-game but only remember part of their name? Use the search bar to filter across the directory! Looking for guilds with a specialization feature? Select one or multiple search terms and find the guild that you’re looking for. Search Guilds Search TalonRO’s Guild Directory with powerful search terms. Sort guilds in the list by the following descriptors: All guild names across the entire directory, Difficulty of in-game content which the guild reports to mostly participate (e.g.: early, mid, or end-game), Guilds which specialize in: PvM, MVP hunting, Vanilla or Unrestricted WoE, Battlegrounds, PvP, instances, social, or that have their own voice chat or website. Once you’ve found the right guild for you, click on its name in the directory to view their full listing. From here, you’ll be able to read across the entire offering of information about the guild, such as viewing its emblem, seeing if they are opening for new recruits, learn more about their leadership and contact their guild leader, and much more! Guilds can even add special information about themselves in the “guild description” section – where you can read all about a guild’s offerings, interest, and anything else they wish to tell the Talonians about themselves! The guild information page is a one-source stop for information about the guild, allowing you to browse through the directory and learn more about their interests, membership, and more! You’ll even be able to apply directly to a guild which is openly recruiting (for more information, see the below “Coming Soon” section)! We hope that this section provides helpful information and insight into the activities of TalonRO’s guilds – and that you can learn something new about what your fellow Talonians are up to in-game as a community! Browse Guilds View any guild’s listing by clicking on their name in the directory, where you’ll be taken to their page. View information such as: Current emblem Guild level Recruiting status Points of contact for information and guild leadership In-game activity difficulty level Website and voice chat (if applicable) Where you can find the guild at their home town / save point in-game. As a guild leader, you’ll have amazing access in shaping your guild’s information in the directory – allowing the TalonRO community to see all that you have to offer. Adding your guild is a simple process as a guild leader. If you’re a guild leader, visit Account -> Manage Guilds in the Control Panel, or visit the page here to get started. This feature will be available in the Player Control Panel for all players who lead a guild on a Game Account within their Master Account. Guilds which are added to the directory will be approved by a member of the Gamemaster team. Once approved, your guild will receive an official listing on the directory, letting players across TalonRO know that your guild is among a registered group of community members! Once on the management page, you’ll be able to view your guilds which you have currently registered, add a new guild, edit the listings for the guild, as well as include your own special information to add flavor, descriptions, and more! Not only is the management section a source for adding in your own guild, but you’ll be able to utilize this space more fully in the future to help you administer the details of your guild – providing you great control and insight into the community of people whom you help to lead! We’ve designed the management section to aid in shaping great communities to come together, drawing on feedback from guild leaders on what tools they need to help make lasting memories! Browse Guilds Guild leaders will be able to access the Guild Management page, which allows for insight and access into administering the details of the guild’s listing in the directory. Add your own guild to the directory as a guild leader Include details about your guild and craft its listing into the directory Manage information about your guild, along with new upcoming features (listed below) designed to help aid in the administration of your guild’s function The magic of the Guild Directory is just getting started! We have some powerful new features which are coming up, and will be included in one of our maintenance updates – so be on the lookout for these expanded features. Automated guild invitation is one feature that both prospective members and guild leaders will enjoy! You’ll be able to apply directly to a guild that is openly recruiting through a membership application. If validated, approved new members will be able to speak with a Kafra Agent directly to accept membership – no need to find a member online with invitation privileges! Further plans include guild storage permission control through the management section, and an advanced guild member listing along with their last activity in-game! These features are sure to be helpful to all members of the community, allowing the guild to be at the center of the experience. Coming Soon - Features Planned Expansion plans for the Guild Directory will be forthcoming. These features are presently not in place, but will include exciting updates such as: Automated guild invitation for approved members, Accepted applicants will be able to confirm their membership with any Kafra Agent, Guild storage permission control, Advanced guild member listing, along with last active information. We’re pleased to introduce automated character signatures – a special new feature which we hope that you’ll enjoy in your forum signature, or anywhere else where you want to show off your TalonRO character to the world! This wonderful new resource is available also through the Player Control Panel, or by accessing it here, and is ready for your design – made simple and easy to use for your direct enjoyment! While logged into your Master Account on the page, simply enter the name of the character you wish to have a signature made – you’ll only be able to make a signature for your own characters, allowing you authoritative control on your signature. Select from one of three currently available themes – Spring, Halloween, or Beach – and let TalonRO do the rest! The generator will call up your character’s details, sprite, dye, headgear, and more. Afterward, take the direct link and pop it into your signature on the forums, or anywhere else where you’d like to show off your character! We hope that you’ll enjoy this fun new feature – use it to show off your amazing character to the world! We can’t wait to see where your character will end up! Character Signature Generator The TalonRO Character Signature Generator is now online! Use this new feature to generate an image of your own character for use in forum signatures, or anywhere else that you like. To get started, visit our Signature Generator on the Player Control Panel: Enter your character name while signed into your Master Account. You will only be able to generate character signatures for those characters on Game Accounts associated with your Master Account. Select a theme to be used as your background. Currently available options include: Spring – a green and lush background Halloween – a dark and sinister backdrop Beach – ready for a vacation on the shore Click on generate and copy the direct link to use anywhere you like. We’ll host the image and it will automatically pull up all of your character’s image, styles, headgears, and more! Finally, we’re happy to provide a brief update of the Battleground refresh! Plans have been going well, and testing is well underway on this exciting update. Given that we endeavor to work out every detail from this complicated offering based on community feedback, our release date and live event will be pushed out two weeks to Sunday, May 14th. We apologize for the brief delay, but are currently working on a closed beta testing to ensure this fun update is completely ready to go! The Battlegrounds coin NPC exchanger will still be available in Lighthalzen during this time. We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to releasing the details of our upcoming refresh launch and live event! As always, we hope that you enjoy these updates as part of TalonRO’s commitment to make your gaming experience the very best that it can be! Thanks as always for your support, and happy gaming! We’re proud to feature the artwork of Talonians from all across our great community in our news postings. The artwork featured in this release includes the work of the following artists: Arcelle, Marly, and Arcadia (via Xwanwan)! An incredible thanks as well to Jessu, who was instrumental in creating the three signature options within the generator. A big thank you from a grateful team for this work!

    Spring is here on TalonRO! With the changing season in the air, we're pleased to roll out our Easter Event, albeit a little later than usual - it wouldn't be springtime without a visit from the Easter Bunny in Midgard! We hope that you enjoy all of the information and details below for this year's fun, festive, seasonal event! Easter Event: The Great Golden Easter Egg The Golden Easter Egg hunt is back! To begin, speak with the warper NPC in Prontera and start on your very own easter egg hunt! The goal of the Easter Event is to make a Golden Easter Egg. Opening these eggs may give you some wonderful items if you're lucky this year! While the items inside are good, they do take a while to obtain and you'll have to put in some effort this season. To do this, you'll need to complete the three pieces of the putting together a Golden Easter Egg: Easter Eggs. These eggs can be found in our very own Easter Egg Hunt. Find as many eggs as you can within five minutes and you'll be off to a great start! However to make this challenge tough, you won't actually be able to see these easter eggs - but you will once in a while see/hear a blinking effect. If you run over an egg, you will get it in your inventory! There is no Golden Egg for the one who has most eggs. However, the one who finds more than half (50) of the eggs on the map will be rewarded with a Golden Egg. Be sure to hunt and hunt often and you might just get lucky! There are two waiting rooms for the event so that more people can enjoy it at the same time as well. You'll need five people to play with you on this event as well. The map removes equipment now as well but in exchange there'll be areas around the map that give you a speed boost! Easter Paint. When you login to the server, you will now be given an Easter Bunny Band! This hat gives some wonderful added effects as well. The hat cannot be traded and doesn't weigh anything - but it's both there for some holiday fun as well as required to obtain the final piece of making your own Golden Easter Egg. While wearing the Easter Bunny Band, you can hunt 4 different mobs: Peco Peco, Eggyra, Grand Peco and Spring Rabbit. Only while wearing the hat, these mobs give a chance to drop Easter Paint. Together with the Easter Eggs and Easter Ribbons you can combine these to make a Golden Easter Egg! Easter Ribbons. Getting your own Easter Ribbon works just like obtaining the Easter Paint: by killing the above-mentioned monsters. You can also get these ribbons together with the Bronze Coins by doing the Hunting Board missions. But there's more! We have also made a small quest (just look for the right NPC in the event map) for an Easter Basket. This is an accessory, also with pretty good effects, that will boost the droprate of Easter Paint when killing the above mobs. It only works when combined with the Easter Bunny Band, however! Once you've obtained all three items, trade them with the NPC on our Easter map to make them into your very own Golden Easter Egg! We also have Easter Invasions and Very Cute Doll Hat Costume available as well this year. Every few hours, the Easter Peco will invade a random town! This powerful MVP is certainly not easy to defeat, but its rewards are well worth it. Several other monsters will invade the town as well. Defeat the monsters and there will be lots of Porings on the entire map that might just drop some nice goodies! Our Very Cute Doll Hat Costume is one quest though you'll have to figure out - but you'll be able to get the hang of it as you play the other event's games. Happy Easter and best of luck to you this year! The event will run for one (1) week and will end on Friday, April 28th! Enjoy it while it lasts!

    Hi! My friends and I started playing here a few days ago, so @Arcelle and I thought it might be nice to set up an art shop (we're in desperate need of hats, and we have no equipment, hehe)! So... joint art shop, since both of us were too chicken to do this alone (and I'm the one posting, since I'm leeching off of her priest)! 1 TC = 1.2m Zeny Arcelle Mistreil http://artcelle.tumblr.com/ http://mistreil.tumblr.com/ Chibis 20 TC Non-chibis Waist-up: 50 TC Lightly-coloured Headshot: 10 TC Waist-up: 20 TC Full-body: 30 TC Arcelle's Art Chibis Non-chibis* Mistreil's Art Lightly-coloured Fully-coloured* * If prices aren't listed for something you'd like, then either ask or make an offer (bribes!!) If you're commissioning one of us, please post in this thread with the following information: Your IGN What you're commissioning (e.g. "Chibi from Arcelle" or "Headshot/waist-up/full-body from Mistreil") Payment (e.g. TC or Zeny) References for your character (e.g. screenshots, other art; written descriptions are helpful too, so we can get their personality right!) Commissions may take anywhere from a few hours to a week (or more if there's a lot to get through)! We'll be drawing in our spare time/while leeching off each other, but feel free to ask us about the status of your commission!

    🌸🌸🌸 “…At some point Boreas simply started replying “Yea and my dog banned you”…” 🌸🌸🌸 GM Luna: Thank you Seiren for taking the time to sit down with me this fine afternoon. It’s a pleasure to be paired with one of TalonRO legends ~ GM Seiren: Thank you for holding this interview! I’ve enjoyed reading the previous blogs, so I’m excited to see how this one will go. GM Luna: Well, I’ve tried to think of questions a little outside of the box for our session. GM Seiren: Uh oh. Should I be scared? GM Luna: Ahahaha … no no, not at all. No Death Stars in this interview. GM Seiren: Phew! GM Luna: So, tell me, what does your Admin life entail within our world of TalonRO? GM Seiren: I would say that as an Admin, I’m involved in pretty much everything regarding the server. My main job is about content development. I’m responsible for the majority of the new things that you will find in game. Think of a new RO episode, major event like the Amazing Summer Race, keeping all the items and monsters up-to-date, you name it! But the fun doesn’t stop there however. Outside of scripting work, I work closely together with the other Admins on new web-related features such as new website, the forum and upcoming new control panel. Finally there’s a little player interaction of course. None of the Admins spend a day without taking care of multiple support tickets. It’s not the most joyful part of the GM-life but it has to be done. And when I Have time left I like to hop in-game and socialize a bit with our wonderful community GM Luna: Wow! Sounds like you have one full plate. GM Seiren: Haha, it never ends! GM Luna: Have you ever had a moment where you felt, hold on a second, can I really continue doing this? If so what keeps you motivated and going? GM Seiren: If I’m being perfectly honest? Yes and more than once. I have been a GM on TalonRO since early 2008, so that makes for almost 9 years by now, which makes TalonRO a huge part of my life. There is not a day that goes by without having TalonRO in it, in a way it’s a 24/7 job. So even if you were to have plans on a weekend, you always have to be available in case something goes wrong or something requires your immediate attention. That never stops. This is the first part. GM Luna: Such dedication, it’s inspiring. GM Seiren: The second part is about actual work itself. For example, the meiadrir patch from last year is mostly considered as a bad thing by our community. We introduced a few balancing updates which were about 5% of the entire update. What people don’t realise is that this is an update we have worked very hard on, for weeks if not months and were super excited to release. When we finally finished everything and were happy with the result, we decided to release it. Rather than people being excited about the heaps of updates, new feature, new items, people were attacking us over an update that we thought was so minor. Having spent so much time and effort into something then to have is bashed into the ground isn’t the most motivating experience I must say. HOWEVER! After all these years I’m still here first off, what motivate me most the people I get to work with. Through the years I’ve made very good friends on the GM team, some of which I consider close friends. It’s an absolute pleasure to work with them. Secondly, there is always this one person in the community who randomly PMs you and says “thank you for your hard work”. Hearing that from one person absolutely beats 100 people who complain to you. And being able to release something you’ve worked hard on for it to be received in a positive manner by the community is awesome, too ~ GM Luna: Wow! Am sorry that you and the Admin team received such response and yes I completely agree, having that one player PM you and thanking you for all the hard work is worth more than any complaint. Such touching words from you, Seiren. Ok let’s move on before I cry an ocean in our session. GM Seiren: Hahaha! We wouldn’t want that! D: GM Luna: As one, who has been here for quite a long time, I would assume you have seen quite a lot of interesting things can you share with us one of your unforgettable moments within TalonRO? I know you said about the meiadrir patch but maybe while you was randomly in town and saw conversation or witnessed a “what the hell” moment. GM Seiren: Ha. Too many to mention really, one of the most amazing things I have experienced has to be the rise of TalonRO. Back in 2008 our population wasn’t doing well at all. It was down to maybe 15-20 people online. Seeing it go up through the years is something that’s really great to see and make me proud of be part of the server. In-game, I think the very first Yule Ball left a pretty good impression. We didn’t know what to expect from out very first internet dance party. In our minds it was great concept, but you never know how it turns out! To see more than 500 people join this event was something none of us expected, I think. This also resulted into some nice traditions such as the GM Seiren Captain Jack march. I have absolutely no clue anymore how this came to be, but it’s a tradition now! And an awesome one at that, haha. I would say most of the interesting things happen outside of the game though. We have collected so many inside jokes through the years. The term “Dogbro” comes to mind, which is a persona that was created by I think Boreas. In many tickets (too many to count really) people blamed their brother, sister, cousin, best friend, you name it, for breaking the rules. Stole someone’s gears? My brother did it. Fraud the voting, sister? Ser, it was my cousin! At some point Boreas simply started replying “Yea and my dog banned you” Eventually that turned out into the “dogbro” character being the person who did all the bad things. Not the players, of course. It was dogbro! We’ve secretly hidden him on various quests and events in-game as well and like to giggle about it be-hide the scenes. GM Luna: It must have been pretty tough times during those early days and having to witness the server grow from what it was to what it is now must be a wonderful feeling. Like when a sweet lover walks into a candy store and sees all the lush chocolates and candy. The tale of the “Dogbro” will forever go down in TalonRO history and what a interesting story, to see that even through the stressful time you can joke and make a situation into a fun one. So on to our next question. If you could swap bodies with another member of the GM team, who would it be and why? GM Seiren: GM Howl, duh. Who wouldn’t want his impeccable abs? 8) GM Luna: Oh! Someone get me some water … I’ve heard the stories! GM Seiren: His hordes of fangirls are legendary ~ GM Luna: That is no surprise! He has, on many occasions proven why he is popular! Ok moving on ~ Which RO monster would you say your personality relates to? GM Seiren: Fallen Bishop? No, just kidding. Oof, that’s a difficult one. *think* Can I say Tatacho? Sleep is love. Sleep is Life! GM Luna: Oh! That cute fluff ball! All he does is sleep and eat ~ GM Seiren: Who wouldn’t want that?! GM Luna: If only… in an ideal world A Zombie apocalypse happens while you are holding a GM meeting and all 16 members of the GM team are present BUT your safe room can only hold 15 people. What do you do?! GM Seiren: Rick Grimes isn’t a GM is he? GM Luna: ahahah! If only it was that easy ~ GM Seiren: Well frick. Hmm. I heard rumours that GM Luna has quite the armour of weapon to fight off zombie apocalypse. She’d be able to help out for sure! Boreas with his mighty ban hammer will deal with some zombies no double as well.Howl will just wall of text the zombie to death. Other than that, the people closest to me of course and then whoever brings the most food! GM Luna: Ahahaha! If only they knew *cough* GM Seiren: They wouldn’t because they’d be dead. GM Luna: And just hypothetically speaking … how would they tell? Your supposed to get rid of the bodies, a good assassin know this ~ Hahahah! Well that’s a warp! Thank you again Seiren. GM Seiren: you’re very welcome! Thank you for having me!

    Let me help you on that. First of all there's 5 steps you should always do before selling anything. Check if it's a SQI ingredients Go do your search to see it's an ingredients for which SQI. With this link: https://wiki.talonro.com/Super_Quest_Items It's important to know from which SQI it's an ingredient. Because an SQI ingredient for Artemis (which is more played) would be more demanded on the market compared to an ingredients for the Ghostdancer. Because people play more sniper than soul linker. Notice by thoses graphs: https://panel.talonro.com/statistics/#classbranches Check if it's a SQI Bonus ingredients Repeat the same step as mentionned previously with this: https://wiki.talonro.com/Super_Quest_Items_Upgrades_Ingredient_List + figure out if it's a SQI bonus relatively good and played. Like for Staff of Magi most of the people would go 1: +5 dex 2: +5dex 3: +5dex 4: Reduc CD Amplify. So all the others SQI bonus ingredients for the others bonus might be way hardier to sell. @GM Howl Did this particulary good item database: https://share.talonro.com/ItemCraft/index.html which help you to search all the ingredients of all the items you can create and all the quest you can do in TalonRO. So by this way you can figure out the real value of an item. For an example the Peridot is an SQI ingredients, but not only that it can be used to get a Tirfing, Rudra Bow and Guillotine. You can manage to double the value of an item by transforming it in another item or even get it easier to resell. Some quest will reward you with some interesting item in return. You should pay attention about the event value of the item. For example during the winter here comes the Winter Scarf Quest and a lot of the ingredients see their prices rise for a lot. Few items get a new use and get valuable just dring theses events like Ice Piece. So you should be in touch of thoses items needed for various events during the years. Which lead this point to the summer race event and some quest required ingredients https://wiki.talonro.com/Amazing_Summer_Race_Guide Go take a peek on the market to see if there's a lot of offer for an item in particular. This would mean 2 things there's a potential in value in the capacity to resell it, but the price will be way lower. So let's figure out what is valuable with thoses 4 steps in Magma Dungeon 1. Let's start monster by monsters: Blazer Drops: Live Coal: is used in a few headgears Quest, figure out if thoses headgears are interesting either for you or for sale value and it's required in some quest. Burning Heart: Not really valuable except it's part of a quest (Chief Quest) (with a long list of ingredients which inclue Live Coal) to possibly get Shoes [1] which can be resold 400-450k. It's an SQI Bonus Ingredient for Electric Guitar, Hira Shurikat White Herb: Easily to resell it to 600z/each to a Brewer. Explosion Drops: Wing of red bat: Have absolutely no potential, that's an item to resell to NPC. Mastela Fruit: Easy good money and you can resell it to NPC. It's pretty rare people use it as a consumable, but you still can give a try to vend them. Rough Oridecon: It would be wise to keep them and when you a fair amount, trade them 5 rough oridecon to make 1 oridecon. Burning hair: Have only two use and it's for a headgears and for the Nibelungen SQI bonus +10 Str and Staff of Magi Reduction of 20% against ranged attack. Which can be interesting. You might not sell it to NPC. Grizzly Drops: Bear's Footskin: Used for Sign Quest which is really a principal quest (Geffenia) + it's an SQI bonus for the Twin Fang boosting the dmg of one of the principal sell of a SinX Meteor Assault. Might be wise to not sell it to NPC. Animal skin: Required for one headgear quest and that's all. An headgear which is sold for 2m atm. Yam: Still a consumable but with a chance to stun yourself (Only good foor for high VIT). The NPC won't give you an incredible price for them. Decide it or not to keep it for a futur use on a High VIT character. Kaho THE MOST INTERESTING ONE Drops: Flame heart: Can be sold for 10k to others players considering it's an SQI ingredient for Belmont Whip. Still have several others uses. Coal: Really interesting food ingredients for STR Food. Can transform it into steel, in another ore and for a few quests. Don't sell it to NPC Rough Elunium: With the 30% drop rate, Magma Dungeon 1 can be one of the best place to farm Elunium. Which can be resold for 12-13k to others players. Lvl 3 fire bolt: Is used in a headgear quest and that's all FRAGMENT of LORD KAHO'S HORNS: You might already know but never resell this to NPC, it's one of the main ingredients of Lord Kaho's horn. It would always keep a certain value, because people and newcomer will always want the Lord kaho's horn. It's the principal headgear for most of the community. 100% will have as a goal to get Lord Kaho's horn. Alcohol: SQI ingredients for Suiken (Giving it a lot of value). Have a lot of others utility. So it's a not for sell to NPC Lava Golem Drops: Lava: Used for a particular headgear and an SQI bonus ingredient for the Scouter. Full plate: NPC buyable nothing more to say. Full plate [1]: Has a great value keep it for vending. Magma Fist [3]: Easily found on the market, not really valuable tho. Keep one for yourself, try to vend the others. If you're unable to sell it just sell it to NPC I probably overkilled it, but use the 5 steps as I told for any further question about: Should I sell it or not to the NPC. You might find a lot of utility to somes items you thought has no use.

    There are specific items I basically check for every day or keep in mind as gears I plan to build/make. I'd like to propose the possibility of a wishlist feature akin to online shopping for the panel that could be an easy way to keep this going and perform searches. In browsing the itemdb it was a feature I'd often pondered.

    Changed Status to Implemented We want to call that Home Town actually, so that will be added for sure. As for nationalities, I am not a fan of that. We are an international server after all and restricting access to your guild like that sounds as if we live in 1930. You can do that internally if you want, but we will not help with that.

    @Naght Done! @• ρ j • Sure thing! I do want to let you know that I'm not as confident drawing males as I am drawing females though, and I definitely don't want you to pay for something you aren't happy with. Could you please look at the sample below and tell me if you'd still like to commission me? (It's the most recent male I've drawn, haha.) I just want to make sure you know what to expect. @@; @kossploss Thank you. :'D
