  3. TalonRO's biggest update brings an entirely new level of features and excitement with Chapter III: Gateway to Vanaheim. The SQI Revamp is one of the largest, if not most comprehensive enhancements in TalonRO's nearly fifteen year history - and we're introducing more features than ever before! With an entirely new SQI system built from the ground up, as well as a brand new story questline, instances and the ability to traverse the capital city of Vanaheim, Chapter III is jam-packed with content! The SQI Revamp is all about making your TalonRO moments unforgettable, and making your time on our server the best that it's ever been. With this explosion of new content, instances to conquer and SQIs to make, we know that Gateway to Vanaheim will take your TalonRO experience to a higher gear! This ambitious update is one we hope you will love. Click here to watch the trailer! To begin your journey on the new SQI quest, use the Dimensional Device in Morroc city and talk to Kvasir inside the Dimensional Gap! We'd like to delve into the SQI reworked designs, consider this a general design philosophy to those that are curious about what went on for the whole development process, rather than going through each SQI individually. It should also shed some light as to why this ultimately took a year to get out to you all. [Phase I: Initial Brainstorm] [Phase II: SQI Item Analysis] [Phase III: The Design Phase] [Phase IV: Review Phase] [Phase V: Final Adjustments] [Closing Statement] [Ancient Juperos] Embark on an expedition to Ancient Juperos, prior to the downfall of this technological empire. Experience new gameplay styles, using stealth and other tactics to steal the blueprints of a powerful, archaic device. [Battle of Vanaheim] Save the sacred city of Vanaheim from an impending threat that seeks to bring despair and ruin not just upon the city, but to all Nine Worlds. Fight your way to the top of the capitol in full-scale war with an allied army aiding you against a dark legion; facing familiar and new adversaries in the tides of battle. [Birth of a God] Find your way across the labyrinth of chaos and illusions before confronting one of the biggest threats ever to be seen by the realm of Gods since aeons past. Tread lightly, for your inner wickedness knows no bounds and will be tested by the sinister deity throughout the descent. As part of our new design philosophy, you will notice various changes given to each and every Class SQI available. Base items will be more powerful, offering you all the required stat boosts needed, whilst bonuses are focused more heavily on distinct playing styles. This way, no bonus is left unused and will have their purposes. By focusing more on versatility, you can now swap bonuses with ease without needing to enter Valhalla and spend large amounts of items every time you wish to swap out your perks. Read below for more detailed information on the latest changes. [Changelog Legend] Green - Added or buffed Red - Removed or nerfed Blue - Existing but altered or moved in some way Existing Stat/Bonus not mentioned - No changes Megjingard Changelog Nibelungen Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Aegis Shield Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Staff of Magi Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Tome of Ymir Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Artemis Bow Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Electric Guitar Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Belmont Whip Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Evangelist Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Suiken Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Mjolnir Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Djinn Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Twin Fang Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Sherwood Bow Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Blade of Angels Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Hira Shurikat Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Scouter Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Eversong Greaves Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients Ghostdancer Staff Changelog Updated Base/Bonuses/Ingredients While the new bonus system does have some familiarity that you may be used to from previous iterations, there are also plenty of changes that make it more streamlined and user friendly. Here's a breakdown of all the latest information regarding the new system: [New Bonus UI] [New Bonus Application System] [New Bonus Requirements] Pre-Existing SQI Compensations It may already be clear to those who have read the news -- existing Class Essences have been removed, your pre-existing bonuses have also reset, and any previous SQI Quest progress are now wiped to make room for the revamped questline. As you're aware, many base SQIs are now better or improved drastically than the SQIs you once owned with bonuses, therefore it was a step we needed to take to ensure fair balance across the board when implementing the new SQI structure. While it may seem unfortunate upon first glance, we obviously wouldn't do this unless it was absolutely necessary and came with a hefty compensation for those who have invested time and effort on acquiring their bonuses. You can expect the following reimbursement which you are entitled to for two months per character on your game accounts (one time only): A free complete unslot of your character's SQI IF you had at least 1 bonus before. An x amount of Purified Essences according to how many bonuses you had previously. Speak with the SQI Extractor at Prontera 162,193 to claim the above. Item Changelog As part of the revamp update, we've also made some changes to the SQI item requirements by introducing brand new common MvP drops, in addition to adjusting existing ingredients for various mobs. This is to ensure items are fairly obtainable in-game, without having to use the reward guru or strenuously scarce methods. You can find more details about this below: Miscellaneous New SQI Quest Progress is still bound by your account like it was before. Level Requirement to get started with the new SQI Quest is still level 90. However, you can now also do the quest and create SQIs when you are level 80 transcendent. At this moment, when a player crashes or disconnects during one of the SQI instances, they cannot return. We are planning on releasing return mechanics in the near future. As some of the instances have a significant amount of dialogue, we realize that during repeated runs, this can become bothersome. Therefore, we have plans on adding an option to disable cutscenes. As always, we are closely monitoring the new release, so expect changes and fixes over the coming months. We welcome all the feedback and are looking forward to making this the most exciting episode yet! With the newly established capital of Vanaheim, players will be able to warp and venture into the archaic world freely (upon completing the SQI story quest). We will also be releasing planned future updates -- with possibilities for new content being endless. Expect a variety of new add-ons as well as episodic updates centered around the city of Vanaheim, its unique storyline and so much more! We are thrilled to have you join us in this journey and appreciate the patience for the SQI revamp, it's been a long time coming, but we're finally here now.

  8. IGN: Zeiniru Manara @Zeiniru IGN: -Axis @Hi im L Stalker x SouL Linker Soul Linker POV I walk in a Louyang field to pick up some fruits. While walking, I saw someone lying down on the ground. I rushed towards it only to see an injured and unconscious male stalker. Stalker POV “My head hurts.” I slowly opened my eyes and saw all my injuries have been treated while I’m lying in a bed in an unknown room. “How are you?” I got shocked as I looked to my left, only to see a beautiful lady soul linker standing while she’s holding a bowl of water and a towel. “I’m fine, are you the one that treated my injuries?” “Yes. I saw you lying on the ground, what happened?” “I see. It’s nothing... Thank you” The Soul Linker started to treat my wounds again. --------- After 2 Days ---------- Someone knocks on the door. She stood up from her chair and heads towards the door to open it. It’s their tribe chief. “Are you ready for your marriage in 3 days?” asked by the Chief. “......Y-Yes....” She replied "Your role is very important." said by the Chief “I know...” She replied She slowly closed the door and heads back towards to me to change my bandage. She looks unhappy. I ask her “Do you want to get married?” She suddenly stop the she said “My tribe is at war. We, the soul linkers have the power to enhance our partner’s power as long as a ritual of marriage is made.” I looked at her in the eyes ask her this. “Do you want to come with me? We will go to explore the world, we will go to adventure.” I saw excitement in her eyes “Ye-!” Then she stop and looked down then she says this to me. “It’s not that easy. Not fulfilling my role means disgrace and dishonor.” I replied “I understand..... I think I have to leave tomorrow morning.” --------- After 3 Days ---------- Soul-Linker POV The day of the marriage... I’ll have to marry a person who I don’t even know. But if it’s for the better good, then I’ll accept my fate willingly. Then sudden tears flowing in my eyes. “I really wanted to go to adventure.” *- Lord of Vermillion-* “Invader!!!” Shouted by the guards as I saw the stalker making a mess on the hall. He grabs my arm and he use Intimidate Skill to escape the guards. We run to far places and rest in high ground. I saw the view of town of Louyang “It’s beautiful” Then I looked at him and ask “Why you came back?” He blushed and says this “I really want you to see how beautiful world is and be free do want you really want.” Then he looked at me and asked “I will ask you again this question for last time, do you want to go to adventure? You can go back if you want.” And I answered “Yes I want to go with you.”

  11. It is Halloween and the entrance to Melodia, the home to Melodia Academy has been opened! Magicians, musicians and all sorts of adventurers gather here every year to celebrate the annual Haunted Festival as part of the Halloween tradition. Quests, games and competitions aplenty can be enjoyed throughout the Haunted Festival at Melodia. Be sure to read on to learn more about this year's Halloween event. Every year, the residents of Melodia prepares a variety of activities for the students of the academy - an opportunity for everyone to play together, compete against each other, run errands, unravel mysteries and of course - win fantastic prizes along the way! As Melodia opens its doors to adventurers and explorers alike, there is only one way to enter the magical town. Talk to the Ferryman NPC in Prontera and he will usher and ferry you to Melodia Academy. House Windsor led by Remy House Guile led by Faa House Sorin led by Sola House Emure led by Sydo Remy, Faa, Sola and Sydo - house leaders of the Melodia Academy - are proud to invite everyone to join the Melodia Academy, which prides itself with its four noble houses - House Windsor, House Guile, House Sorin and House Emure. In order to join a house, simply speak to the Monny NPC at the academy to get sorted into one of the four houses. While your preferences will be weighed in, Monny is ultimately responsible for sorting you into a house, and will pick for you based on what it believes your capabilities can offer. Note that your house assignment will apply to all characters within your master account. We highly recommend consolidating your individual participation to one character - so you can maximize your earned points and prizes more effectively! After you have been sorted into a house, the Ferryman NPC will be authorized to provide you access to various location within the town of Melodia directly from Prontera. Complimenting the services of the Ferryman would be a fellow student from House Sorin, Eileen. She will be happy to send you to various locations around the town as well if you give her a Lucky Candy. In addition, you will receive an achievement and a title upon joining a house! To equip the title once you earn the achievement for joining your house, do the following: If your status menu (aka icons) is not already open, do so by clicking the tiny down arrow right under the Status UI. Go to the bottom left and select the Achievement Challenges Trophy Icon. While in the Achievements UI, select the Adventure tab. Navigate to the Achievement you just earned, go to the bottom right, and click the Collect button. If not already opened, access your Equipment Window by pressing [ALT + Q], and make your way to the right most tab at the top, "Title". You will see the name of the house you just got sorted to here (Windsor, Guile, Sorin, Emure). Equip it by double clicking it, and that's that! - In the past - In the previous years, students of the Melodia Academy unraveled the mysteries of unpleasant happenings around the town and the academy, occurrences that may even chill the bravest of bravest to its core. It was found that the grandmaster of the academy, Saberoth was possessed and had his body and soul taken over by the lord of the nether realm, who was summoned unintentionally by the founders of Melodia Academy centuries ago - the one true terror now forgotten, which Melodians of the olden days remembered as the Night King. After a long battle lasting several days, Melodians emerged victorious and the Night King was sealed within an ancient artifact known as the Monkey's Paw. Peace returned to Melodia for a short while, until the rise of a foe with unparalleled powers, whom very existence is a taboo. The students of Melodia Academy joined forces in investigating the acts of terror that has befallen upon Melodia, to which they discovered the new foe was none other than Lucia, the first born of Algo, one of Melodia Academy's founder. Lucia was born with incomprehensible levels of magical power, proven by his vitality over the centuries. The defeat and imprisonment of the Night King provided Lucia with the opportunity to seize the age-old power for himself - to become the ultimate being that reigns both the living realm and the nether realm by siphoning the Night King's power into himself. Despite obtaining the Night King's power successfully, Lucia was forced to flee and retreat from Melodia under the pressure of the students and town folks. Now with plenty of time to master his new powers over the year, Lucia began to re-invade Melodia with the sole intention of claiming his birthright - one that was never given by his father. - At the present - Once enrolled into the Melodia Academy, speak to your house leader and embark on the quest to challenge and defeat Lucia, probably once and for all, in this year's episode of Halloween: Parade of Melody! Upon completion of the Halloween quest, you will be able to initiate a one-of-a-kind MVP Instance. Gather your comrades, put on your best armors and weapons, and unleash every ounce of power you have in the hardest challenge of this year's Halloween MVP Instance. You can participate in the instance even without completing the main quest, as long as your party leader has completed the main quest and is able to initiate the MVP instance. - On the sidelines - A mysterious entity who goes by the alias Geomancer requires some aid in gathering resources to bolster its strength in necromancy. In return, the entity will reward the hard work of whomever that has provided help. Meanwhile, a helpless Deviruchiling Fanatic is in dire need of help somewhere in the town of Melodia. Without the neccessary food ingredients, he is unable to feed his Deviruchiling fledglings! In exchange for adventurer's aid, the fanatic might giveaway a Deviruchiling pet as a reward. As dark as the fate of Melodia can be, the joyous celebration of the Haunted Festival is not forgotten. Competitions have always been the heart of every year's festival, this year's included. Melodia offers a huge variety of competitive activities to pit all four houses against each other with mini games that are designed to test your skills, proficiency and perhaps luck as well. Be certain to try out all of them to experience everything Melodia has to offer you, and also earn points for your house and tickets for yourself. Visit the Melodia Manor at the southeastern side of the town and discover multiple rooms of mini games available. Melodia Academy has partnered with the lord of the manor to host competitive games here. Take note though, the butler will always be watching you. Blackjack & Guess the Number The Melodia Haunted Casino is open for business! Play special party-based rounds of Blackjack rotating alongside a haunted Guess the Number mini game. Strike it rich for your opportunity to win tickets! This micro event will be available during the festival, and recommended for when you're waiting in between hourly rounds of other events! 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 house 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! Both teams will be given unique team costumes that matches the color of the team's MVP. The teams are randomized. Halloween Challenge Even the students of Melodia Academy recall this classic Halloween game involving candy - a favorite! Fight through traps and snares and pitfalls as you work your way to collect Candy Bags. Find as many as you can for a higher reward! The Labyrinth Once open, the Labyrinth is the home of some truly foul magic and energy, 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! Amazing Ragna-Race Participate with a group of players in a race up the spiraling hill. There will be Horong Booster to increase your speed when ran into temporarily, but watch out for those random Ankle Snares as well! You will find Item Boxes along the race track - these will greatly aid you by giving a boost or slowing everybody else down. If you're lucky, you might even swap position with another racer ahead of you or slow everybody else down! The fastest three racers to cross the finishing line on the bridge at the hilltop will be crowned as winners. Winning 1st place will earn points for your house! This is definitely not a casual stroll up a hill. [Update] The game now features a variety of new effects when grabbing an Item Box, including Skid Traps, Blinding, Confusion, Status Immunity and more! Shadow Tag In this team based game, all 4 houses in a free for all setting be assigned to kill a Doom Trooper named after their house. However, not every Doom Trooper is fond of being attacked. They can retaliate by disrupting your attacks. First person to take down his/her team's Doom Trooper will win some house points and all members of the winning house participating in the game can walk away with some Halloween tickets and bragging rights. If on rotation still and a Doom Troop is defeated. There is a short cooldown before they spawn again and another round begins. If the time runs out before any Doom Trooper has been taken down, the team with the lowest Doom Trooper health will be declared the winning team. [Update] Shadow Tag this year has two major new additions that will severely impact the dynamics of the event: Magic Balls Every now and then a Magic Ball will be spawned in the middle of the map. Depending on the objective that's announced, push the ball into either your own or another house's square and get a nice bonus! Damage your own Doom Troop, heal the opponent's and gain Doom Points! Haunting You can now gather Doom Points through Magic Balls objectives and simply as time passes. Doom Points can be used to Haunt an opponent's house! Haunting a house can result in some of the following effects: Heal their Doom Troop. Scatter their team all around the map. Strip half of their team. Make their Doom Troop temporarily invulnerable to Magic or Ranged attacks. And much more! Whack-A-Ghostring A squadron of Ghostrings will appear in this mini game for you to whack. Whacking the correct Ghostring will earn you some points but be cautious though, whacking the wrong one will cost you points. Keep an eye out on the emoticons used by the Ghostrings! Whack your way to victory by becoming the person who belts the most Ghostring correctly in 5 minutes. Outside the manor, you can find town games being hosted by Melodia residents as well. Poring Seek Mischievous Porionettes roam around the town when this mini game 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 house with the most wins will win additional team-wide points! 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 house 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 points for you and your house. At the west side of Melodia, Zarevok guards the entrance to the Racas Forest. Speak to him to gain access and venture into the woods surrounding the town of Melodia. Hunting Grounds Hunting Grounds are open all the time. However, tickets only drop during Happy Hour. Embark on an exploration into the Racas Forest by choosing one of the three difficulties available that best suits what you can handle! [Easy] Relatively approachable for just about anybody. There is no MvP monster in this map! However, it has the lowest ticket rate and experience rates. [Intermediate] A step up from Easy, meant for the middle of the road adventurer. An MvP will spawn here! The ticket rate, experience, and drops here are very suitable for the intended skill level. [Nightmare] Meant for the most hardcore of adventurers. The experience, drops, and ticket rates are all excellent here and are definitely worth the time and effort. However, the monsters are very difficult and the MvP is especially difficult. If you can, try to bring a party here, preferably with fellow house members! The Happy Hour Mechanic gets enabled while Black Jack and Guess The Number are down. During this happy hour, monsters have a chance to drop tickets when killed. Depending on the chosen difficulty, you can get the Racas Forest monsters to drop a set amount of tickets per happy hour session: [Easy] 20 Tickets [Intermediate] 25 Tickets [Nightmare] 30 Tickets While the Happy Hour is enabled, monster kills will grant you points. These points will be tallied at the end of the Happy Hour. The House with the most earned points will win that Happy Hour and earn points toward the final score for their house this year! The way points are distributed are as follows. The amount varies depending on difficulty: 1 point for every five (5) normal monster killed on Easy map. 1 point for every three (3) normal monster killed on Intermediate and Nightmare maps. Killing an MvP rewards a massive amount of points. All three difficulties are purely PvM orientated. House Points will determine which of the four houses will emerge as victorious this year. House points can be earned by anyone for their team through participating in the Halloween mini games. The Melodia Academy registrar will be keeping a record of the scores hidden until the end of the Halloween festival, when the winning house and runner-up house will be announced! A special prize will also go to all students who are affiliated with the winning house this year! Be sure to gather as many points as you can for your house! Halloween Tickets can be accumulated and traded in for a wide array of wonderful prizes this year! This is surely one thing that you'll want to collect! Earn these tickets throughout multiple activities in the Melodia, and trade them with the Halloween Prize NPC, located just above the docks in Melodia, for a variety of wonderful and magical prizes. What magical prizes await you this year? Surely, there is only one way to find out! Trade in your Halloween Tickets at the Halloween Prize NPC in the for any of the following amazing prizes: Trade a single (1) Halloween Ticket for a Dead Branch. Trade six (6) Halloween Tickets for a Trick or Treat Box! [Note] We reduced the odds of bad rewards, increased the odds of good rewards and added a variety of new costumes, pets, consumables and even cards! Trade fifty (50) Halloween Tickets for a chance at winning one of six exclusive costumes in a raffle style! On top of that you can choose to go for last year's costumes, too! [Note] Two brand new costumes have been added to the raffle list! [Note] These costumes are account-bound. [Note] If you have any existing costumes in the list, ensure that you have them in your inventory to prevent getting doubles! Trade ninety (90) Halloween Tickets in for a Bloody Branch! Halloween Tickets are character-bound, so you are strongly encouraged to earn those tickets using a single character. Special Honorary Degrees will be awarded to the thirteen (13) most intrepid adventurers who have helped to settle this year's tie. Individual prizes will be handed out to winners of various mini games who have demonstrated that their skills are on par with the best-in-class students of each house! Those individuals with the most points at the end of the entire Halloween festival will be announced and receive a special, exclusive prize! Note that top-performance is character driven - so to compete in this area, we recommend participating in the Haunted Festival 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: Halloween Challenge, Whack-A-Ghostring, Poring Seek, Simon Says, and Simon Sequence. 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. This score is cumulative across all three difficulties, so you are highly recommended to play in all modes to earn the maximum amount of points in this category! The top-three (3) MVP Defense Treasure Chest breakers, Amazing Ragna Race winners and Shadow Tag winners. Performance in MVP Defense 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 house score, while opening Treasure Chests will contribute points toward your individual performance scores in the Degree awards. In the Amazing Ragna Race, the Top 3 will gain points towards this competition. Of course, the better you do, the higher your score! For Shadow Tag, every time you kill your MVP, you will gain points for the competition! The single fastest party of four (4) in the Labyrinth when this mini game is made available. Be on the lookout for the Labyrinth mini game during the Haunted Festival. You'll be able to form parties of four (4) players for this mini game. The party of four (4) with the fastest completion time in the Labyrinth will win a Degree Award this year as well! In recognition of outstanding efforts, each of this year's thirteen Degree recipients will receive two special prizes: Blue Moon Loli Ruri Pet (not account-bound!) - considerably rare, this pet is sure to let everyone know that you're a powerful student of Melodia! Your choice of 1x MVP Card! Cards eligible for this prize are those currently available from the Talon Shop. Maya Purple is furthermore excluded from this list. In addition to competition prizes, there are also various rewards to be obtained throughout the Halloween event. Kill some monsters, talk to some NPCs, complete some quests and you might find yourself possessing some (or all) of these seasonal event rewards. Upon completion of the Halloween quest, the MVP Instance will be unlocked. We recommend partying up with other players in order to defeat the MVP. The instance will feature the Halloween festival's most unique rewards - so it is not to be missed, even though it will be challenging! May your goodie bags be filled and may your spirits be hallowed! The musical town of Melodia is packed with many exciting features and challenging mini games. We can't wait to see you plunging into the festival, but we also want to give you a quick highlight of the important rules, guidelines and dates that are in place - so you can make the most out of your Halloween adventure. Be sure to review the list below so that you're well prepared for the Parade of Melody! 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. A status bulletin board is available in both Melodia and Melodia Academy to remind you of your house affiliation, as well as a readout of what the current hourly mini game 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 mini map. The board also features some fun news and weather across Melodia (just pack accordingly if you see any dangerous activity!) This year's episode of Halloween: Parade of Melody will end on Sunday, November 15th evening time, and within a few days after that, the winning house will be announced, along with this year's house prizes and Degree Award recipients! We hope that you enjoy what Melodia has to offer this year and we hope that you'll emerge as one of this year's Honorary Degree Award winners! We also hope that this will be a memorable and fun autumn season for you as we look forward to the months ahead of us. As always, thank you for supporting TalonRO and happy gaming! Musica est vita!

  14. Mid-month maintenance is slowly turning into the major release, rather than our Monthly reboots! Today we release the long-anticipated Ninja and Gunslinger Update as well as some major updates, rebalances, fixes and much more! Regarding bugs and exploits With a few discussions going on lately about players assuming certain parts of the gameplay being totally fine, when in reality it's unintended behavior, we'd like to reiterate something that's not always widely known. For starters, when you suspect that part of TalonRO's gameplay might be an exploit, you are expected to report it. This is nothing new, of course. However, this is not always as clear as night and day. If you suspect something might be unintended, we appreciate it if you ask the GM team about it through a Support Ticket. In these cases either we say "yes, that's fine", and you continue to use it, or we say "whoa, no, not fine!" in which case we will likely patch it up. This will also prevent something unintended from being in the game too long, people growing accustomed to it, and people getting upset if we do end up patching it. That said, we'd like to remind people that we may give out rewards when something is reported and it is deemed either a bug, exploit or unintended behavior, depending on the severity of the matter. Helping us improve the game is greatly appreciated and we show our gratitude accordingly. We'll update our rules page to reflect this message accordingly as well. Thank you! Malangdo Updates In an effort to give more use to the Malangdo instances and quests, we have increased the Talon Shop cost of Silvervine Fruit boxes by 3.5x their original cost. While this might make Malangdo enchants more costly, we believe it's done for a good reason. We'll monitor Malangdo after this update and will be releasing more updates in the near future. Along with the price increase, we have made many updates that will make the actual instances of this island more rewarding: Added new Silvervine Fruit Box at a lower cost with 4 pieces inside. Lowered Silvervine Fruit cost of Seagod's Protection and Octopus Hunting Stick rental. Removed the 24 hour versions. Lowered cost of Seagod's Protection and Octopus Hunting Stick rental from Merry Barker in the Eden Group. Lowed droprate of High Weapons Box on one of the weaker Coelacanths to match its counterpart. Increased the droprates of all Coin Bags on the higher level Coelacanths significantly. Lowered entry level of Malangdo Culvert instances by 5. Fixed a potential exploit where multi clienters could grab more quests than allowed. Daily Missions can now be played twice a day (only once per character) rather than once per day. Increased rewards for Daily Services. Strongly increased the droprates of various Coin Bags in Malangdo Culverts and Octopus Cave. Lowered cost of enchant removal in Malangdo from 2 to 1 Silvervine Fruit. Lowered Silvervine Fruit cost of Malangdo rental weapons. UnAFKing your Chemists We've all undoubtedly seen it: maps filled with Alchemists or Creators, AFKing with their Homunculus, leaving little monsters remaining for players who legitimately want to hunt in that particular map. To combat Chemists running a multitude of clients with Homunculi, we have reduced the amount of Homunculi a player can have on them at any time. They can now have a total of 3 Homunculi active. If you login while having 3 Homunculi out already, your Homunculus will automatically be put away. Similarly, if you try to use Call or Resurrect Homunculus, these skills will not function if you already have 3 running. The only solution will be to put one away. Tombstone CCTVs When we introduced the MVP Tombstones, some players told us how they missed the previous killannounce command and that the MVP Tombstone system is somewhat flawed. After all, the only thing players have to do is place characters near a tombstone and just wait for it to disappear. To somewhat alleviate this and meet in the middle of the Tombstone and Killannounce, the Tombstones will now disappear 5 to 10 minutes (randomly) before the MVP will spawn. In addition, the moment a Tombstone disappears, a map announcement regarding the imminent respawning of the MVP will be made. Battleground Bonanza Added an NPC in the BG lobby called Currency Trader Xeno, who can deposit and withdraw both Valor and Glory Coins to your forum account, allowing you to grab them on any character you like. He also allows you to exchange Glory Coins into Valor Coins at a 1:1 exchange rate. Improved match announcements and made them more uniform. When joining an ongoing match, all the queued players are now put into teams randomly rather than in the order of joining the queue. Fixed a bug where the duration of Hunter traps was not properly reduced as per BG rules in these maps: Conquest Stone Control Rush Bossnia Domination Triple Inferno New Implementations Re-implemented the Chess minigame. You can find it at the Comodo Carnival by talking to the Chess King! Added an Eden Teleport Officer to Archer Village spawn. Added Inventor Jaax NPC (for making Arrow Quivers) to: Hugel 148,192 Archer Village, inside the tool shop building. Comodo, inside the tool shop building. Tweaks Increased the droprates of Helm of Dullahan, Armor Piece of Dullahan, Red Muffler and Tangled Chains on Dullahan and Disguise from 66% to 80%. GM Challenge and Wave Challenge monsters no longer contribute toward any monster killing quests. These are the only instances where this is currently applied. You can still use Endless Tower to clear certain quests if you so desire. Atroce now teleports when getting too close to a portal the same way some other high end MVPs do. 1st Commander of Destruction Card now gives a 50% Brandish Spear bonus instead of the previous 25%. However, when combined with a Nibelungen, the bonus is only 40%. Peco Peco Hairband (5286) now gives a 25% walking speed boost rather than 5%. Updated the Wedding announcement text color to one that's more easy to read. Except for Soul Linker marriages. Those are still dark, dark red, ya scrubs. Making Arrow skill can now also be used on indoor maps. Ancient Tower updates: On Stage 10, the initial spawns of Loki's Adherent are now more spread out. Fallen Acidus and Fallen Ferus are now Dragon race rather than Demi Human. On Stage 26 and 28, Valkyrie Randgris and Skadi now spawn in one of four corners rather than always the same location. The other mobs on the map are now spread out around the map. Biolabs 4 updates: Removed NPC_AGIUP on idle from Chen and Flamel. This means that Trentini, Alphoccio and Gertie still have it. Lowered NPC_AGIUP level on attack from 5 to 1 on all Chen and Flamel mobs. Trentini, Alphoccio and Gertie still have level 5. Chen now has a chance to cast Body Relocation when hit by Esma. Updated Old Purple Boxes: Re-implemented low chance of getting SQI Essences. Added low chance of gaining new SQI materials: Corrupted Soul Leak Claw Exquisite Hair Broken Wine Glass Windstorm Fragment Cape of Dark Lord Boitata Tree Branch Broken Kata Piece of GPU Gold Plating Significantly increased the droprate of the following items when opening a Most Valuable Box: Shining Spear Blade Leak Claw Broken Wine Glass Mother's Nightmare Young Twig Gold Plating Fixes Fixed a bug in the Kihop limitation where it would not properly count the amount of clients you were using, resulting in a lower damage output. Fixed Acid Demonstration causing Strip Armor on monsters, reducing their VIT as a result, and thus AD damage. This should now no longer happen. Fixed Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie giving 40% hit boost instead of a fixed 40 HIT. Fixed Pick Stone working when overweight. It now functions the same way Making Arrow does. Fixed Rental Lever Action Rifle's description incorrectly mentioning a 40% damage increase when it's actually 30%. Fixed Mercenary's Lex Divina skill not working. It's finally here! As teased long ago regarding previously made suggestions as well as being a popular request, the new Gunslinger Weapons have officially arrived in our custom Guns and Crimson Petals update! But, of course, it's not just Gunslinger, as you can't have Gunslingers without Ninjas. Therefore, a new selection of Huuma Shurikens and other Ninja armors will also be released this update! These new items, however, will not actually drop from monsters like most other equipment does. Instead, these items will require you to craft them, which closely resembles and is faithful to the original and official equipment quests from when these classes first came out. This also makes sure that these new items consistently maintain value, so we hope you understand! Finally before continuing below, we would like to announce the following updates to existing Ninja/Gunslinger items as part of the celebration for this update finally coming out. Some of these being long time requests as well! To start off, we'd like to remind everyone that none of these new equipment items will work in Vanilla PvP/BG/WoE. They will however work in non-Vanilla PvP settings such as events and Vanilla ET. Miscelaneous Updates Added existing Gun and Huuma type(s) to the Malangdo Enchanter. More information about this can be found later! Added new Rental Items for Huuma Shuriken and all remaining Gun types. More information about this can be found later! Added new Tier 3 Eden Weapons for Rifle, Shotgun, Gatling Gun, and Grenade Launcher. More information about this can be found later! Kunais and Shurikens now have quiver-type items. More information about this can be found later! Reduced All Shurikens weight from 0.5 to 0.1. Reduced All Kunais weight from 2 to 0.2. Reduced All Spheres weight from 0.5 to 0.2. Reduced All Sphere Packs weight from 35 to 25. Reduced Bronze Coin cost of Rental Lever Action Rifle from 175 to 110. Increased Rental Lever Action Rifle ASPD from -5% to +10%. Tights[0] and Tights[1] can now be worn by Gunslingers. Ninja Suit[0] and Ninja Suit[1] now weigh 50 instead of 150. Lowered the respawn time of Shinobi in Amatsu Dungeon. Shinobi Sash can now be slotted with Seiyablem! Shinobi Sash is considered an S Rank item. It requires 2 Elunium and costs 1m Zeny per attempt. Shinobi Sash [1] ( ID : 28485 ) can only be worn by Ninja! The slotted version also supports the combo, however, Shinobi Sash [0] and Shinobi Sash [1]'s combos do not stack! Greatest General Card's class condition now includes Gunslinger. Greatest General Card also updated to support the 10 coin limit instead of just 5 when worn by Gunslingers. Ninja Equipment There will be two new NPCs available to you in the Amatsu Ninja Hideout regarding Ninja's new equipment. One of them specializes in new Armors and Shields, and the other one specializes in just new Huuma Shurikens. Ninja Armors and Shields For starters, you can find Master Gyo Habaiyaki located at que_ng 21 72 ( /navi que_ng 21/72 ). When speaking to him as a Ninja, he will allow you to craft brand new Armors and Shields for your class, but only if you've first met at least Base Level 80! After meeting all the requirements, view the below spoilers to see your options. They each have an item and a zeny requirement! Special Ninja Suit & Fox Arm Guard Ninja Scale Armor & Wolf Arm Guard Tenebris Latitantes & Crescent Arm Guard Ninja Huuma Shurikens Meanwhile in another room of the Amatsu Ninja Hideout, you can find Master Ki Subasubishi located at que_ng 72 37 ( /navi que_ng 72/37 ). After speaking with him as a Ninja and making sure you have at least Base Level 70, he will allow you to make various new Huuma Shuriken weapons, which you can refer to with the below spoiler. Which, just like the Armors and Shields, have a variety of item and zeny requirements. Kunai and Shuriken Containers As mentioned earlier, Kunais and Shurikens now have container items! If you're already familiar with how Quivers work and how creating Quivers works, you will already have a fairly good idea of how Kunai and Shuriken containers will work. These two NPCs are also available at the Amatsu Weapon/Armor Dealer Building located at amatsu 132 117 ( /navi amatsu 132/117 )! Find Kashinobi located at que_ng 74 23 ( /navi que_ng 74/23 ). After speaking with him as a Ninja he will allow you to store Shurikens into container items. Like arrows, it will store 500 of the given Shuriken type. These are as follows: Shuriken Box (ID: 22025): Stores 500 Shuriken, 500 Zeny Cost. Raincloud Shuriken Box (ID: 22026): Stores 500 Raincloud Shuriken, 500 Zeny Cost.

Fell Poison Kunai Scroll (ID: 23085): Stores 500 Fell Poison Kunai, 500 Zeny Cost. Gunslinger Equipment There is a single new NPC, Ms. Juno Vulkan, available to Gunslingers at the Gunslinger's Guild in Einbroch. You can find her at que_ng 187 175 ( /navi que_ng 187/175 ). After speaking with her as a Gunslinger, the items she will offer you varies depending on your base level! Once you reach Base Level 70, you can start making new Guns with her. Once you reach Base Level 80, you can start making a new Gunslinger exclusive gear set with her. You can use the below spoilers to see what new items she can make for you! Revolvers Rifles Gatling Guns Shotguns Grenade Launchers Mob Scarf & Rebellion's Scarf New Rental Weapons In addition to the earlier mentioned Rental Lever Action Rifle changes, a new rental Huuma and remaining gun types for rental have also been added! To view what these new rental items are, you can use the below spoilers: New Eden Tier 3 Guns Also as mentioned earlier, there will now be a new choice of gun weapons that can be obtained at the Eden Group! Like all other Tier 3 weapons, they are obtained after completing the quest(s) related to Instructor Ur. You will now have a choice instead of the Tier 3 Eden Revolver to obtain either a Rifle, Gatling Gun, Shotgun, or Grenade Launcher. These are as follows using the below spoiler: Malangdo Enchanter Additions As mentioned earlier, the Malangdo Enchanter now supports Guns and Huumas as possible weapon types! For this specific update, the starting lineup of Guns and Huumas accepted are as follows using the below spoiler: Conclusion And that's the content we have to deliver regarding Ninjas and Gunslingers. We hope that you are all satisified with these additions. Happy gaming Talonians!

Discover what the warriors require from you and what you will be tasked for - a journey that is both enlightening and fulfilling. Joining the celebration this year as the age-old catastrophic antagonist is none other than the Year Beast. It has managed to escape the captivity of the Heavenly Jade Soldiers due to mischievous acts by adventurers last year through feeding and providing it with sustenance. Defend the cities against its destructive rampages and return the peace to TalonRO! Alongside the Ox Deity, all other deities may have some specific requests to ask of you. They can be found all over the city of Louyang. Should you prove yourself to be helpful, you may find yourself in a position to be offered an opportunity to receive rewards from previous years. Among the rewards, there are equipment, costumes, pets and many others to obtain. You will also see event-exclusive Lunar Dragons roaming around various cities. Defeat them and they might give you some hefty rewards. The Lunar New Year event concludes at the end of February 2021, so be sure to complete as many tasks as possible to receive the maximum rewards possible!

  17. TalonRO is pleased to partner once more with GoFundMe Charity this holiday season in our annual fundraiser to benefit The Ocean Cleanup. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, primarily from rivers. And the plastic that's afloat within the oceans isn't going away by itself. To effectively solve the problem, we need to both turn off the tap and mop the floor at the same time. The Ocean Cleanup is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world's oceans of plastic. Their aim is to put themselves out of business once the oceans are clean. Visit https://theoceancleanup.com/ for more information on their impressive efforts! 100% of all proceeds go directly to The Ocean Cleanup through the GoFundMe Charity partnership. From now until December 31st, 2021 - TalonRO will thank those who have donated to the TalonRO Fundraiser with a unique in-game gift. Keep in mind that these donations do -not- give you any Talon Cash like a donation to TalonRO would. Donations made after December 31st will not receive the rewards listed below. Due to changes in the GoFundMe donation system, the method of ensuring you receive your rewards has slightly changed, so please pay attention. Make your charitable donation to The Ocean Cleanup with TalonRO in three simple steps: Visit TalonRO's GoFundMe Charity page for The Ocean Cleanup Donate any amount to support The Ocean Cleanup, though the minimum amount is $10 USD. Once your donation has been made, please scroll down on the charity page and leave a Comment that contains ONLY your in-game character name. This is so we can match your donation to your character and deliver your thank-you reward! Receive your special thank you gift! All thank-you items will be distributed in January at the conclusion of the fundraiser. All items received will be account-bound, but you can use the Vending Machine NPC in Lutie to claim the Costume and Pet on as many characters as you like. Thank-you items will be distributed through an NPC in early January. Gifts will not be distributed until after the fundraiser is over, but we will ensure that all who made an eligible donation will receive their thank-you gift. No Talon Cash will be given out for donations made through the GoFundMe Charity campaign, and all proceeds will directly benefit The Ocean Cleanup. Donating at higher levels will grant you the gifts in the levels below as well. For example, donating $50 will earn you all three thank-you gifts! $10 USD Donors will receive one (1) special Surprise Box, which will contain some wonderful and enjoyable goodies inside! This year, the Surprise Box has been updated with many new rare costumes from past Monthly Boxes, too! $25 USD Donors will receive one (1) exclusive Spoon and Fork Costume (Garment)! Donors at this level will also receive one (1) Surprise Box as well! $50 USD Donors will receive one (1) charity event exclusive Creeper Egg! This magical pet and companion when loyal will increase your resistance to Wind property attacks by 2%, along with STR+2 and VIT+2. Donors at this level will also receive both the Surprise Box and Spoon and Fork Costume as well. We hope that you'll join TalonRO in making a contribution toward this worthwhile cause and help bring the magic of the holidays to the incredible work of The Ocean Cleanup. Our goal this year is to raise $2,500 for charity - and we hope to be able to do that with your help! Thank you for your generosity and for being a wonderful part of the TalonRO community of players. Thanks, Happy Holidays, and Happy Gaming!

The long awaited SQI Revamp will be scheduled for release this month, along with the annual Yule Ball event gearing up for another spectacular gala! Notable mentions: To start 2021 off right and make it better than 2020 (does not take much, but hey!), we are launching a 12x EXP event for one week! It's scheduled to end on January 8th. Our Annual Charity Event ended up with a whopping $7366 for Doctors Without Borders, when our goal was set to $1000. Thank you so much everyone for your generosity! We'll be adding an NPC soon to claim your prizes! Once again, this is an amazing achievement! Our Christmas Event is still ongoing through till January 7th! The SQI Revamp will be scheduled to launch this month. More info below! Limited Item Sale To celebrate finally getting rid of 2020, we have released a temporary Special Effect costume for a duration of one week. The [Visual] Fireworks Costume goes to the Garment Slot and can be purchased from the Talon Shop. Monthly Updates Our Monthly Maintenance comes with some common updates: A brand new TamTam's Odyssey region: Rachel Fields Ice Dungeon GMC Box rotations: Enchanted Dog Costume [20983] Greater Dracul Horn Costume [20933] Wave Box rotations: Little Garden Costume [21156] Poring Beret Costume [21209] A brand new Monthly Costume Box, available in the Talon Shop: Imperial Glory Costume [21655] Royal Mantle Costume [20935] Calabash Costume [Garment] [21590] Japanese Hair Costume [21587] Neev Barrette Costume [20934] Fluffy Heart Earmuffs Costume [20952] Dog Officer Costume [20805] Alchemist Mask Costume [20988] Dark Randgris Helm Costume [21012] Ignis Cap Costume [20868] Capricorn Diadem Costume [21178] Feather Beret Costume [20953]~ With the likes of 'Baby' Mystic Tower scheduled for January, as well the imminent release of the SQI revamp, what better way than to indulge in some good old fashioned leveling with bonus experience?

All rankings for GM Challenge, Wave Challenge and Ancient Tower have been reset. Due to some of the top scores having been achieved on older or buggy versions of these instances, it was due for a reset to give everyone an equal playing ground.

  20. This year, the Amazing Summer Race is starting a little earlier than normal and it's our biggest release yet! With heavily remade Summertime Boxes, the introduction of Bonus Rounds and more, this year will be the greatest one to date! The Treasure Hunting and Cocktail Making return as well, with some fun new additions. And let's not forget about the Evil Octopus Instance. This year's event is jam-packed full of new rewards and challenges. See below for more details! Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members in Port Malaya to begin the journey of the season. After registration, you'll need to find the person in each region who can start your quest after starting in Port Malaya. From there, this person will be hiding in one of four regions. Once they are located, you'll begin a quick quest. Collect one of each special regional badge by performing these quests that takes place all over Midgard and beyond! Your goal is to eventually successfully complete one of each type of quest, and decide to turn those badges in for a prize or bet them all on a harder quest whose rewards will be even greater! This year's Summer Event will run until August 31st! USE ONLY ONE MASTER ACCOUNT FOR THE RACE Please remember: it is strictly forbidden to use more than one (1) master account to get badges. Using the master account of a friend or family member to get more badges is forbidden and can lead to a permanent ban! BADGE EXCHANGE All race badges will be account-bound - but if you're too heavy with one kind of badge and need one of a different type, you can exchange that with the Race Staff for three of an existing badge type! You can now also gather Bonus Summer Badges which you can also exchange for any other badge type. Read below for more details! The Summer Event has been evolving over the years, but this year it's bigger than ever! We'll show you exactly what has changed: Amazing Summer Race The general script has been strongly optimized and made future-proof. This is something you won't really notice as a player, but if you see any weird behaviour as a result, please let us know! Added 2021 Summertime Boxes. These boxes are severely renewed with a vast majority of the old rewards removed and brand new rewards added! You can now also purchase the 2020 Summertime Boxes if you so desire. Considering the new boxes are so vastly different, some people might prefer the old ones, which you can now also purchase. Each region now has more possible NPCs to find. Some more than others. Introduced a brand new region: Islands. This is a special one. Twice per day, at random times, a regular Summer Race round can be followed by a Bonus Round! This Bonus Round lasts for only 30 minutes and takes you to the various special island locations around the world of RO: Moscovia, Gonryun, Amatsu, Dewata, you name it! During these rounds you can earn Bonus Summer Badges (only normal, not advanced) which can be exchanged for any other badge of your liking. We equalized the chances of getting particular missions. Previously, you would randomly get a mission from a list of all the NPC finding missions, Item gathering missions and Monster killing missions. This year, the type of mission is decided first, which makes it a 1/3 chance to get a specific type. After that, a random mission is picked within that type. This ensures that certain types that have more available missions don't get picked too often. Added 5 new Item Finding missions. Added 6 new Monster Killing missions. Added 7 new NPC Finding missions. Cocktail Making Completely rewritten the script. As always, if you see any weird behaviour as a result, please let us know! Removed Raydric's Tonic cocktail. We felt that this cocktail took away too much from Soul Linkers. Added 7 new cocktails all with their own status icon. The old cocktails do not have such a status icon just yet. Bobo's Boba: Ignores 10% DEF and 10% MDEF on all monsters for 5 minutes. Wolfchev's Nightcap: Increases Physical and Magical damage against Biolabs monsters by 15% for 15 minutes. Chepet's Match: Increases heal power of Heal, Sanctuary and Potion Pitcher by 10% for 15 minutes. Dullahan's Ale: Adds +10 Perfect Dodge for 20 minutes. Sippin' Galapagos: For 15 minutes, increases heal amount if you are healed by any skills by 10%. Sleeper's Dream: Increases MaxHP by 5% for 15 minutes. Mobster's Paradise: Increases MaxSP by 5% for 15 minutes. Treasure Hunting Captain TamTam now has his own special Captain sprite, thanks to @GM Spica! Added a variety of new rewards when digging. Fast Movement skills such as Body Relocation, Running, etc. can now not be used on the Treasure Hunting map for the event duration. 6 brand new locations for the Weekly Treasure Maps, with major rewards for the first person who finds the treasure! Much like last year, we have our Fast Five NPC Finder Competition! The 5 players who were the first to find most NPCs for each Summer Race round, will win a special prize. This year you can win the [Visual] Many Stars Costume. The costume is game account-bound. The missions and regions of the Amazing Summer Race are many - so we want to make sure that you have a preview of what you're getting into before you embark upon the race! The regions are mostly as they always were, but with new NPC additions and locations as well as one whole new region to explore! Read on for more information. Regions Kordt Forest: The Kordt Forest is for all quests performed in a forest-type of area. You might find yourself deep within Mt. Mjolnir, or perhaps out roaming the Prontera Fields - just don't get lost in the woods! Sograt Desert: The Sograt Desert areas aptly refer to any area which is primarily desert. Although the Sograt Desert is the largest desert in Midgard, it is by no means the only one. Be sure to bring lots of water on your journey! Kokomo Tropics & Tundra: The Kokomo Tropics & Tundra are any collection of tropical or tundra areas around Midgard. While it might be tempting to bring along the summer suits and sunscreen, keep your eyes open when a quest is in this area! Darmian Dungeons: The Darmian Dungeon region refer to all quests which take place in a dungeon. Don't worry: all of the dungeon quests will be in open-access dungeons...though safety is not guaranteed when venturing in here! Islands: This is a special one, introduced this year! Twice per day, at random times, a regular Summer Race round can be followed by a Bonus Round! This Bonus Round lasts for only 30 minutes and takes you to the various special island locations around the world of RO: Moscovia, Gonryun, Amatsu, Dewata, you name it! During these rounds you can earn Bonus Summer Badges (only normal, not advanced) which can be exchanged for any other badge of your liking. Missions Monster Hunting: Monster hunting is a staple of the Amazing Race! On these quests, you'll need to defeat as many of a certain type of monster as you can! Searching: If the regional Amazing Race staff member assigns you to a monster hunting quest, then you had better gear up for a quick run through of those monsters! You'll need to do so before the time is up as well! Item Gathering: In these quests, your searching isn't done yet! You'll have to hunt across Midgard to find a special individual to complete this assignment. Treasure Hunting is once again returning to the server! Find Captain TamTam in Port Malaya together with his matey Sailor Squiggles. Here you can acquire your very own Digging Shovel. The Event Every few hours, similar to the Amazing Summer Race, Captain TamTam will invite you to hunt for his hidden treasures. He will pick a random map and will tell you in which part of the maps he's hidden various treasures. These can be items of lower value but also powerful and valuable treasures! Simply roam around the map and use the Digging Shovel to dig! Places where people in the map have found treasures will be marked in green on the minimap! On top of that, every now and then Captain TamTam will give you a hint of a treasure's location, marked in red and you will see some special effect indicators now and then that signal where a treasure might be found. If you're really lucky while treasure hunting, you may even find 1 of 2 unique weapons, that can only be obtained during the hunt! They may look like random miscellaneous litter initially, but are actually equipable items! These are as follows in the below spoiler: Weekly Rare Treasure Hunts Much like last year, we will have something special added to the Treasure Hunting event! Once every week, an exceptionally rare and valuable treasure will be hidden in the world of TalonRO. Where? Nobody knows! What's in it? Something very valuable, definitely worth your valuable time! The only way you can find out its location is by finding the Treasure Map. You can do this by combining four unique pieces of the map that can be found every week by simply joining the Treasure Hunt events. Have you found all four unique pieces? Great! Bring them to Captain TamTam in Port Malaya and he will combine them into a real treasure map! You can view these beautiful maps (as created by our amazing @GM Zelda) by clicking on them. There you will find hints about the treasure's location. They won't always be easy, so be sure to ask your friends for help! But be wary, once that week's treasure has been found, it will be gone forever! Each weekly treasure can only be found once! There are a total of 6 weeks where this special event will be held, so be sure to get looking for the treasure map pieces! Help Captain TamTam sail the seas once again in his ship by defeating an octopus believed to be the legendary Akkorokamui, in an instance available for up to 4~6 players, who is stopping TamTam from leaving the Malaya Docks. Akkorokamui is a special type of MvP that uses unique mechanics not seen elsewhere! Goal In order to defeat Akkorokamui you must defeat all of its legs so it can no longer defend itself. Prior to this, the main boss is completely invincible. All of Akkorokamui’s legs have different functions such as buffing/healing, ranged skills, magic skills, debuffs, status, and even physical attacks. It is up to you to decide which legs to take out in what order to figure out what the best strategy is for your team! Joining Not every player can jump into the fight with Akkorokamui. To enter, you must find a Mysterious Key and bring it to Captain TamTam. He will bring you to where the octopus resides! Finding the keys will not be easy. You can obtain them by participating in the Amazing Summer Race and Treasure Hunting! Various stages of the event may reward you with this unique key. Too lazy to race around? Not a problem! The keys can be traded and vended. Find one from your local vendor and give it a shot without any of the racing efforts! Rewards Defeating Akkorokamui can occasionally reward you with amazing gears, exclusive to this content! He will drop the following exclusive equipment: The return of our flavorful Summer Cocktails! Event Galapagos will be roaming about in special areas with ingredients to make wonderful summer cocktails - an array of which offer some special stat boosting effects (as refreshing as being on the beach). This year we have 7 brand new cocktails for you to enjoy, too, all with their own status icon! Good luck earning and making some of these wonderful cocktails below: Summer Cocktails Spammers Heaven: Increase ASPD by 10% for 45 minutes. Seductive Bathory: Reduce Cast Time by 10% for 45 minutes. Sting's Slap: 10% resistance to Physical Attacks for 30 minutes. Blossoming Geographer: 10% resistance to Magic Attacks for 30 minutes.

Sippin' Galapagos: For 15 minutes, increases heal amount if you are healed by any skills by 10%. Sleeper's Dream: Increases MaxHP by 5% for 15 minutes. Mobster's Paradise: Increases MaxSP by 5% for 15 minutes. A classic event that will return on August 1st: TamTam's Tikibar! Thanks to our fun loving and beloved mascot, TamTam, we're serving up summery drinks (and prizes!) throughout the whole month of August. Finally, summer's sunset will eventually fall upon us - and so the Amazing Summer Race will run through August 31st as part of the season end. We hope that you enjoy the wonderful features of this year's Amazing Summer Race - and as always, happy gaming!

  22. xPandaExpressx and Ansa's entry HP: Ansa Sniper: xPandaExpressx ======================================================================================================================= xPandaExpressx: Hey! Do you wanna make babies? Ansa: ”Yeeeee sure bruh, you seem like a fun ,stupid Panda”. And that’s how the story of xPandaExpressx the dazzling Sniper and Ansa the fiendish Dark Priest began. Despite the light and dark ,Yin and Yang nature of Panda and Ansa, they are actually much more similar to each other than what their costumes suggest. They like to constantly tease each other in a joking way and they enjoy each other’s existence. After we married in the game, Ansa teleported me to my doom in Brasilis field (using the Marriage teleport skill) without my knowing while I was afk. Ansa was waiting for the right moment to strike and did not hesitate to do so as soon as the Dark Priest found an opening. Be careful of this weird hooded figure; Lower your guard around Ansa and you might just meet your untimely doom. We took this photo together in The Diel in El Dicastes because this place represents the cold heart of the Dark Priest. However, the heart was pierced with the cupid’s bow and the charismatic aura of the dazzling Sniper. We like to roam the vast world of Rune-Midgard together! If you run into us , don't hesitate to say hi so we can give you free pizzas with pineapples and convert you to the dark, edgy side. Cheers! -Panda and Ansa

  23. Hello! IGN: Professor Scholar, Lv99 Professor. 150 grams. “That’s close to five times the weight of a human one”, I remember mumbling to myself while watching them dissolve in the acidic concoction in front of me. “Beauty really is in the eye of the Beholder. Too bad it’s such a pain to take them out without spoiling everything.” Fifteen hours. Can you imagine? I’m not even into cooking that much! But if course it’d be fifteen hours… Oh, the things I do for you, Umbra… Umbra. It’s been quite a while without you now. I can still hear your whispers when I’m near these books. The sweet memories of how you were gentle to me, making sure I was always on the right path. The gentle, soft touch of your skin on my head. I could never keep my hair straight! Haha. We did try a few times before. Albeit a tad more of… gruesome sightings. Can’t blame us, it was very experimental. It’s like gastronomy, right? Someone had to try if the vessels would work with just human flesh. They didn’t. I savor this bittersweet memory with a heavy heart. We were so close to ending it all. To having you back to my side. To mentor me again. It was real lonely without you there, you know? The darkness was… empty. We both knew the consequences of what we did, but I don’t regret it. Sacrifices are to be made. And from hard times we foster beautiful futures. Umbra. We are bound. Bound forever. Bound to venture once again. To cater to the knowledge of the Arts! I won’t give up. No, I won’t. You were the only to ever understand my… passions. Together, we could do anything. It’s not fair that you were taken from me, imprisoned from this world. I will make it just. Umbra. I am coming for you. *bubbles pop from the gorey emulsion in the cauldron* Ah, yes. Where were we? Decayed nails… ¼ cup… Immortal hearts… 5 pounds… Original screenshot: EDIT: a lot of people told me they didn't quite get the story, so in this small "lore", Umbra was the mentor of this professor in the dark arts, and also the owner of the hand and the small face he wears as costumes. She messes with his mind, and making him prepare this concoction to try and ressurect her. They have tried this in the past in other ways and it didn't work out, so this is the description of his memory in one of these attempts... In the story, he's talking to himself while thinking about the preparation and also about memories past he had with Umbra. Thank you!!

  24. We hope you all enjoyed the Easter festivities, as we are getting further into April. This maintenance introduces many new cards and adjusts a variety of gameplay aspects. Please read ahead and see what's been changed and why~ Merged some new official rAthena Updates. In Battlegrounds, the Please Don't Forget Me status is now dispelled when you restock. Our Stream Announcement NPC in Payon (only available to registered streamers) now also supports Facebook streams. Changed a few remaining Biolabs 4 mob skills: Lowered the cast time of Acid Demonstration by all types of Flamel mobs. Gertie now triggers Double Strafe in any situation, not just when long range attacked. The droprate of Most Valuable Boxes during SQI instances boosted from 5% to 12.5%. Khalitzburg Knight Card and White Knight Card can now be purchased for only 750 Coagulated Spells, rather than their higher cost previously. Instead of the old NPCs, there is now a Portrait Collector NPC in Glast Heim where you can purchase these cards. These cards can not be used in Vanilla PvP environments. The HP Leech penalty on the Eversong Greaves Union bonus now only applies when Union is active, not at all times like before. The following items can now be bought through Buying Stores: Will of Warrior Blood Thirst Ghost Chill Glast Decayed Nail Glast Horrendous Mouth Rough Energy Crystal Purified Energy Crystal Corrupted Soul Leak Claw Exquisite Hair Broken Wine Glass Windstorm Fragment Cape of Dark Lord Boitata Tree Branch Broken Katana Piece of CPU Gold Plating Most Valuable Box In an effort to promote more competitive and fair party play, we are taking certain efforts to reduce the amount of underhanded tricks often used in MVPing. While we understand that this may not be a popular measure within certain MVPing parties, we believe it makes for a more fair gaming environment for everyone, not just certain parties. The status effects of Gospel and Dancer/Bard songs are now removed upon logging out. These buffs are meant to be used in party play and were instead often being used for prebuffs, only to be utilized quickly on a parked character. High-end MVPs now teleport when they come too close to a spawn portal in the map. This is done to prevent killing these MVPs by going in and out of the spawn portal. The following MVPs are affected: All Biolabs 3 and 4 MVPs. Ifrit Valkyrie Randgris Wounded Morocc Kraken Leak Hardrock Mammoth Tendrilion Updated the Fighting Chant/Kihop skill: Fixed a bug where it still counted the player who utilized the Fighting Chant skill. Now only the party members of the user count toward the ATK boost. Limited the amount of party members that contribute towards the ATK boost to 6. This means that in a party of 7 or more, the total ATK boost is 60%. We will continue to monitor the usage of this skill and if needed will make adjustments. Limited the amount of times multi clients can contribute towards the ATK boost: When fighting MVPs, the amount of multi clients contributing is limited to 2. When fighting normal monsters, the amount is limited to 3. Surfer Swimsuit [1] and Antonio's Red Bag [1] when worn together now reduces Freeze Resistance by 20%. This was done in order to make room for new cards, as illustrated below. Fixed some recent event items being usable in Vanilla. The following items can now no longer be used in Vanilla PvP/WoE/BG, but can still be used in certain Vanilla Events and ET: Red Stocking Boots [1] Antonio's Coat [1] Antonio's Red Bag [1] Surfer Swimsuit [1] Oxygen Bottle [1] Undine Spear [3] Spoon [3] Empty Liquor Bottle [3] Detecting Staff [2] Prison Uniform [1] Thief Handcuff [1] Shadow Staff [2] We are very excited to bring to you the next major wave of brand new cards added to the server! This time around, we're adding the remaining cards that we have yet to add before moving on to brand new content. These cards include Old Glast Heim, Eclage, and LH4! A few notes about these cards: None of these cards can be used in Vanilla PvP/WoE/BG, but the non-MVP cards can be used in Vanilla PvM settings. The non-MVP cards are only available as monster drop and will not be in the Talon Shop. All MVP cards can be found in the Talon Shop at a cost of 2000 Talon Cash. The Commander of Destruction Cards can be purchased from the Portait Collector NPC in Glast Heim together with the White Knight and Khalitzburg Knight Cards at a cost of 750 Coagulated Spells. You may view these new cards by using the below spoilers: Old Glast Heim Eclage LH4 Fixed Volcano and Violent Gale not cancelling Wall of Fog if casted on top of a Wall of Fog instance. Increased the maximum amount of units that any player can have at a time. This should fix the issue of Meteor Storm canceling out previously cast instances of the skill as well as a variety of other skills that rely heavily on a high amount of units. Fixed certain weapon and shield related statuses from being dispelled when switching gears. Most notably, this should fix the Maya Card. This also fixes various other statuses from being dispelled, including but not limited to Adrenaline Rush, Gatling Fever, Reflect Shield and more! This only applies if you switch to an item that ensures the status requirement still stands. So Auto Guard would still require you to switch to a Shield. If you were to switch to a Bow, the status would still end properly. In an ongoing effort to let the Valkyrie Bazaar offer more unique items and fewer items available elsewhere in the game, we have introduced two new bespoke items, available in Generalina's Store: Ancient Branch: This branch acts similarly to a Dead or Bloody Branch and can spawn a variety of monsters from the Battle of the Nine instances. Beware, the monsters spawned through this branch can be both very high-end as well as more common. It can be purchased for 200 Valkyrie Coins. This item is account-bound. Old Victory Box: A new reward box to test your luck! Will you get something common like a Bloody Branch or will you get lucky and find a Valkyrie Shield or Aegir Armor? It's up to the universe! It can be purchased for 300 Valkyrie Coins. This item is account-bound. In addition, a few adjustments have been made to existing items in the Bazaar: Grape Juice Boxes and Large Defense Potions now cost 3 coins instead of 2. Blue Potion Box now costs 8 coins instead of 7. All Halter Lead Boxes now cost 2 coins more than before. Chiqita's Jewelry Box now costs 15 coins instead of 10. Ring[1] now costs 250 coins instead of 200. Sniping Suit[1] now costs 300 coins instead of 250. Valkyrja's Manteau[1] now costs 500 coins instead of 450. Aegir Armor[1] now costs 800 coins instead of 700. Yggdrasil Berry Box now costs 7 coins instead of 4. Lv10 Food Bundle now costs 175 coins instead of 125. Removed Box of Chocolates.

Fixed the Wind Walk bonus on Artemis Bow. Fixed a bug where cut-ins would not always disappear in the instances. Ancient Juperos, Battle for Vanaheim, and Birth of a God now all have a return mechanic. Unlike previous return mechanics, you will simply return to your save point. You must interact with Kvasir for Ancient Juperos & Battle of Vanaheim or the Forest Portal in Vanaheim for Birth of a God to enter them again. You can re-enter these instances up to 2 times when leaving an instance. You have up to 10 minutes to re-enter after leaving through logout, disconnection, or by leaving the map manually. You can't re-enter the instance once the final boss has been defeated or if none of your party members are alive. There is now a Random Essence Decay System when repeating the same instance(s) too many times. The penalty rate is -7.5% each time that instance is repeated which is capped at 0% when it drops low enough. For example: the first instance will give a 25% chance, the second time you complete it will give a 17.5% chance, the third time a 10% chance, etc. There are two methods to removing the above penalty: A reset on the penalty that occurs every week on Sunday night. Every time you clear all 3 instances, the rates are reset back to defaults. Layla's Emporium of Valkyrie's Bazaar has fallen back into a deep slumber. Expect her to return with some new goodies/valuables in the near future! War of Valkyrja content is now live.

  26. The end of Summer is here and it's time to go from a friendly communal feeling to the action of WoE and Battlegrounds! This month is the start of a two-part update that aims to improve WoE and BG by giving out more and better rewards, lowering the barrier of entry and just improving overall gameplay. For the Summer Event, you can still exchange any badges you have, make cocktails and play the instance for the time being! Fast Five Winners For starters, we'd like to congratulate the following players for being in the Fast Five (or in this case Six) list for the Summer Race NPC finders: @Maltez @tentenennen @Cassidy @suage143 @Rayssss @bobito Please send a PM on the forums to @GM Seiren to claim your prize.

It will end on our mid-month reboot, so be sure to enjoy it! Monthly Updates First things first, we have our usual Monthly Updates for you to enjoy: New TamTam's Odyssey region: Aldebaran Clock Tower. Excludes Bathories map. GMC Box Rotations: Twin Cannon Costume [21226] Sweet Corone Hair Costume [21374] Wave Challenge Box Rotations: Mic Stand Costume [21422] Enchanted Dog Costume [20983] New Monthly Box: Coat On Back Costume [21693] [Garment] Walking Kishu Inu Costume [21123] [Middle] Walking Shiba Inu Costume [20883] [Middle] Long Fairy Hair Silver Costume [21154] [Lower] War Princess Ribbon Costume [20773] [Upper] One-ear Headset Costume [21841] [Middle] Mask of Cat Costume [21839] [Middle] Rebirth Circlet Costume [21758] [Upper] Parfait Bowl Costume [21838] [Upper] Virgo Crown Costume [21244] [Upper] Soul Wing Costume [20506] [Upper] Shower Cap Costume [20870] [Upper] Campus Festival Hat Costume [21801] [Upper] Limited Edition Costume For a duration of one week, you can now purchase this [Visual] Moon and Stars Costume at the Talon Shop for 5500 Talon Cash! This adorable visual effects costume will surely make you stand out in a crowd! It goes in your Garment slot. Note: even though it's sold for a limited time, it may or may not return in the future to cater towards players from different timezones. Additionally, keep in mind that these visual effects only show up when effects in-game are enabled. Rush now has 4 new castles to play in. Players who joined the initial queue, rather than joining a running match, now earn 30% more rewards. Rewards now do have a hard cap of 50 coins per match, for when the 30% bonus stacks with Happy Hour on high-rewarding modes, for instance. Added a new Happy Hour slot: Friday 04:00 ~ 06:00 server time. Supply updates: You are now given 10 ASPD Potions at the start of a match, rather than 5. Assassins are now given 1 more Poison Bottle at the start of a match. Increased the amount of Traps given out on larger maps. Wizards, Sages, Priests and Super Novices now get BG Gemstones at the start of a match. In addition, once your BG Gemstone supply runs out, you can still use regular store-bought Gemstones! Slightly increased the rewards on various modes: Capture The Flag and Team Deathmatch Winners +2 Losers +2 Ties +2 Stone Control Losers +2 Ties +4 Bossnia Losers +2 Ties +3 Domination and Eye of the Storm Losers +3 Ties +7 Triple Inferno Losers +2 WoE Participation Rewards For starters, we have added the WoE Participation Rewards mechanic. The system revolves around earning rewards by completing various tasks during WoE. This way we as a server can partially compensate guilds, even small ones, for competing in WoE, lowering the barrier to join. This has been something we desired for many years and finally got around to implement: Earn Siege Coins just by participating in WoE The amount of coins you will be rewarded is based on your guild's overall performance in WoE by doing any of the following: Most coins will be earned by winning the War of Emperium. A fixed amount of coins is earned when your guild breaks the Emperium. Additionally, in Second Edition WoE, the coins earned will increase based on the Economy of the castle that is captured. Coins are earned by both building (for the defending guild) and destroying (for the offending guild) structures in Second Edition. This includes Barricades and Guardian Stones. Additionally, bonus coins are given out if either all structures are rebuilt or destroyed. A jackpot based on kills that gets distributed among all participating guilds. This jackpot will be distributed every time an offensive action is performed during WoE, such as breaking Guardian Stones, Barricades or the Emperium, as well as winning the war. During each distribution, 40% of the points will go to the defending guild. 20% of the points will go to the offending guild performing the action. The remaining 40% will be divided among all guilds that contributed at least 10% to the kill count. Reward Guild Members As the Siege Coins are meant to cover a portion of the supplies used during WoE, quick distribution among guild members is important. To do this, the Guild Leader can simply talk to the WoE Rewards NPC at any castle hub to distribute the coins earned during WoE. We made the distribution convenient by using the Guild Title system. Did your guild's Creators spend a lot of potions to heal your guild? Had some Assassins that used a lot of Poison Bottles for EDP? No problem! Just put them in a particular Guild Position and mail them their fair share all at once. It's that easy. Each member of that particular Guild Position will then receive their share of Siege Coins in their RODex, ready to spend on new supplies. Buy Supplies You can talk to the WoE Rewards NPC at any castle hub (in the Warp Girl) to claim your rewards. You can spend your Siege Coins right here on items like WoE Potions, Poison Bottles, Barricade ingredients and much more! It's a great way to stock up on some supplies that you need for the next War of Emperium and should cover at least a portion of what you used during battle. Final Notes We have implemented the scoring mechanisms for the past couple of months and have monitored the points scored during WoEs. We believe the current rewards should be fair compensation for participating in WoE. That said, real-world results may vary, so we will keep monitoring the situation and tweak the scoring or rewards if necessary. More items in the shop are planned as well, so be sure to be on the lookout for that! Morroc SE Castle and Dungeon Introducing a brand new SE Guild Castle! Prepare yourselves for an exciting experience taking over a never before seen castle. Also, if you're lucky enough to win this castle, you will also get to experience the all new Morroc Guild Dungeon! While we are going to keep the information about these mobs disclosed in order to encourage a discovery period, other than them all having 60 VIT across the board (have fun, Creator players!) what we will mention is that every single new mob here has a brand new item associated with it at a card rate (0.03%) chance! New Morroc Guild Dungeon Equipment Every new item you're about to see below can be used in Vanilla, except for the Invective Robe, which is an Unrestricted item. Use the below spoilers to learn more! Apis Axe [4] Iron Shield [1] Invective Robe [1] (NOTE: This item is Unrestricted Only!) Elemental Boots [1] Snake Encyclopedia [3] Consumables and Supplies Reworks The updates you're about to see below are general updates. However, going into these updates as a team, we made all of these decisions with the WoE scene in mind. This is especially true after feedback over a long period of time and careful analysis of the scene: Eden Group now sells a 200 Strawberry Box at 475 Merit Badges. Added weight to Strawberry Boxes, such as the ones obtained from Eden Group. It's made to be a 75% weight reduction over holding the strawberries in your inventory separately. The same applies for the above-mentioned 200 Strawberry Box. Strawberry Boxes can now be put in your cart. Reworked Strawberry Hat (#18589) script to now be a base 3% rate (up from 2.4%) with 0.45% per refine (up from 0.15%). Red Ferus now drops Strawberries at 100% rather than 66%. Additionally, added a secondary drop at 15%. Increased Strawberry droprate on Boa, Wolf, Spore and Coco from 18% to 37.5%. Reduced Red Ferus (#1714) respawn time in Abyss Lake 02 from 5 minutes to 15 seconds. Added an Orange drop at 100% on Green Ferus. Additionally, added a secondary drop at 15%. Increased Orange droprate on Grand Peco from 15% to 75%. Increased Mastela Fruit droprate on Grand Peco from 9% to 15%. Reduced Green Ferus (#1717) respawn time in Abyss Lake 01 from 5 minutes to 15 seconds. Increased Witch Starsand droprate on Punk from 30% to 75%. Added Witch Starsand drop at 100% to Little Fatum and Miming. Additionally, added a secondary drop at 15%. Reduced Blue Potion weight from 15 to 6. Other Moved Repairman NPCs closer to the Castle Hubs. Rotated WoE Castles: Saturday 15:00 - NT Vanilla FE - gefg_cas02 > Unchanged Saturday 16:15 - Vanilla FE - aldeg_cas02 > aldeg_cas03 Saturday 17:30 - Unres FE - prtg_cas05 > prtg_cas01 Sunday 02:45 - NT Vanilla FE - payg_cas03 > payg_cas04 Sunday 04:00 - Vanilla SE - schg_cas01 > mocg_cas01 NEW Sunday 05:15 - Unres SE - arug_cas02 > arug_cas01 General Rankings for Ancient Tower, GMC and Wave Challenge have reset. Improved security on Old SQI Instances as well as Ancient Tower. Old SQI Instances updates: You can now withdraw and deposit Vanaheim Gold at Asmund. All Old SQI Seal instances can now be played 5 times per week rather than once per day. All Old SQI Seal instances now give a combination of Talon Cash and Zeny rather than just Talon Cash. Yuno Seal: Vanaheim Gold reduced from 100 to 75. Talon Cash reduced from 50 to 25. Added 225,000 Zeny reward. Prontera Seal: Talon Cash reduced from 50 to 25. Added 250,000 Zeny reward. Manuk Seal: Talon Cash reduced from 25 to 10. Added 150,000 Zeny reward. Ancient Tower reward changed: Talon Cash reduced from 200 to 150. Added 400,000 Zeny reward. Bug Fixes Fixed a bug where skill based item ignore scripts such as Tome of Ymir's free Endow bonus would not function unless at least 1 Catalyst Item was in the user's inventory. Implemented an rAthena Bugfix which fixes Grimtooth not adding Quagmire slowdown for 1 second against non-boss monsters. Fixed Dark Pinguicula Card working outside of PvM. Fixed a potential bug in Battlegrounds where a player who nearly hit their weekly coin limit could reduce the rewards of everyone else joining that same round. Part 2 Plans As we had too many plans for WoE/BG and just not enough time to get it all done, there will be intermittent updates to WoE and BG matters. To give you some ideas of what we have planned: Updated WoE Castle Treasures. Tweaks to WoE game mechanics to improve gameplay. WoE Rental Gears. New and updated BG modes. New and updated BG rewards.

  32. LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT IGN: Heaven Rose (Alchemist) -GentleTouch (Champion) “I can do this. I am Yam, the famous warrior in Midgard!” I say to myself trying to push that last vodka shot down my throat. Another year has passed by, I achieved all those glory things that people want in life. My kingdom admires me, people want to be my friends. But why am I so lonely? The tavern was getting rowdier as more people flooded in to celebrate Valentine's day, but I took no mind of it, too lost in my own thoughts. I paid no attention when someone asked for the empty seat in front of me, and I just nodded my head and the person proceeded to sit in front of me. I didn’t bother to lift my heads up, as I was too busy wallowing on my pitiful existence. I think the alcohol is getting into me, I thought as I felt the wave of dizziness start hitting me. Getting more bolder from the alcohol, I started singing. Maybe I cried a bit in between my singing too, but I don’t care anymore. As I’m done singing all by myself like an idiot, I pulled up my face and I came face to face with the most beautiful woman I had ever seen in my entire life. It was more than just the way the light danced in her long brown hair. It was more than the feeling that gripped my soul the moment we locked eyes and a smile seemed to spread subtly across her face; the most beautiful, perfect, unforgettable red cheeks as she was smiling at me. She coughed a little bit before extending her hand towards me. Even her coughs are cute I thought, before focusing on her hand. She held a slim vial with a white liquid inside it, offering it to me. “May I offer you this condensed white potion? Maybe it could help mend your heart a little bit.” and she starts giggling after saying that as I could see her cheeks turn even redder than before. I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me right this instant. Before I could embarrass myself even further, I accepted her offerings. “I’m sorry for having you to witness my horrible singing and thank you for the potion, miss..?” “Heaven” she said her name with a smile. That smile.. I think even Glast Heim will brighten up with her smile. And those red cheeks.. I can feel my heart start racing and a warmth starts flooding in within me. As I introduced myself to her, I thought to myself “So this is how love at first sight feels…” Original screenshot: (and yes, this is the original screenshot :>)

  33. IGN: NutellaBrownie IGN: Miko Kikyo Happy Valentines Everyone!!! Here´s the story about two complete strangers that defy all odds and end up finding each other in TalonRo. ( Yeah half world apart...8340 KM to be exact ) NutellaBrownie is a HP with a mission!! To make true friends in every part of the world... Nutella is from Portugal and Miko is from India. We met while recruiting. Miko is a very humble and kind person and we clicked since the first time we spoke. It´s unbelievable how we get along so well and how much we are alike. We started to talk in game then we end up friend requesting on discord and talked for hours on the phone. We always make time to talk to each other even though we may not be playing at that time. We always care for each other and always try to keep ourselfs connected. We use to go "dating" catching pets or do quests together, what matters the most is that we spend time together and having fun while we doing it. After a couple of dates we decided to marry. We end up thinking about a date but that didnt go well because of RLP (real life problems), So one day I said: "Let´s marry!" And she said : "now? It´s 6am xD" And I said: "Yeah or else we never know when we will..." And she said: "Yes let´s do it!" We married after an Guild run with our guild mates in Lutie. Now she is my Waifuuuuuuuuu ❤️ We still play together as we can since our scheduals changed a bit. But I´m sure we still be here supporting each other and deepen our true friendship. Love yah to the moon and back waifuuuu ❤️

  34. SEND MY VALENTINES IN HEAVEN WARNING: Tear Jerking Cheesy Valentines story. Advised to have a couple of tissues while reading ღ High Wizard IGN: ~Kelthuzad~ ღ BiO IGN: Queen Bey Oh, What can i say about the girl player I loved the most I was a lone wolf playing as solo, never bothered to care for anyone, no guild no friends no nothing! Until the moment I met her (Queen Bey) Everything changed... We went on raids, socialized and then i started to grow weary of her. Teased her everyday hoping that she'd pay me more attention. At that exact moment. I knew I was falling. Months went on. She left talonRO, her guildies and me for months without forewarning anyone. I was devastated by the loss of her. "How could a person become my world and not theirs?" Sulking in the abyss which i caused I thought to myself "Ha! this is just a game. What's with my long face? She can leave if she wishe so!" I waited... and waited.. for months... Sadness... So excruciatingly eating away tiny pieces of me... Yet again. I waited, in desperation. Little did i know she became my world. I gave up. It's been months of long wait. I decided it was pointless, that I had to move on, pull myself together, uninstall TalonRO and put everything back together And that's exactly what happened. I went on with my regular normal life. 2 years have passed. The thought randomly crossed my mind. To check how tRO was doing. I installed it back. I logged in... To my shock and excitement. Standing there, Near the reward guru portal. It was Queen Bey. She was back!!! I froze. The first thing on my mind was complete blank. Then i had a flash back. I remember seeing her for the first time in Bingo. When I hated the fact that she was surrounded by these guys. Little did we know that the magical spark would begin! As time went on. we threw each other a couple of corny jokes where we both ended up laughing too much. Oh~ It was good while it lasted. Just mindless indulgence and pure innocence. We were enveloped in a utopia where everything or anyone didn't matter and time stood still. Minutes felt like hours and hours felt like Days! It felt like a moving sea between the shores of our souls and union. Little by little, I have fallen... Deeper than the sea... Who knew the once me would be change so much for a SINGLE person in game. So then I approached her for the first time ever after YEARS of Waiting. Exactly, at the 7th of January this year 2021. I confessed to her then she spoke back. She uttered the words "How could you make me wait that long? I quit TalonRO because i wanted to know if i had a special place in your heart. I wanted you to find me first. To know if i even mattered to you" I wish she would've said that. but then, The chat box popped up. Queen Bey: "Hi This is her brother. Playing on her account. She passed away. Took her own life because she couldn't deal with the sadness brought about by this TRO player who never reciprocated her affection. I know it sounds ridiculous but she's really fragile and weak hearted. Her funeral will be on February 14th" I fell on my chair... Tears streamed down my face. It Seems even death doesn't take a break on Valentines. Please send my VALENTINE to heaven ღ.THE END ORIGINAL PHOTO BELOW

  35. To start off, this year's event will largely be similar to the one we've hosted last year due to the time we have to spend on the SQI Revamp. The storyline about missing Santa Claus and the loss of Christmas Spirit is identical to last year. That said, we did fix a large variety of bugs, made improvements and introduced new quests and rewards! It's that time of the year again! This year, our special Christmas Warper isn't warping anyone to the Enchanted Village! It turns out she has lost her Christmas Spirit due to Santa Claus having gone missing! However, help may be nearby! Once inside, embark on a new quest by talking to Scrooge! As usual, you can enjoy the various games and earn wonderful Christmas Giftboxes by collecting Red and Green Giftbox Pieces. The Christmas Giftboxes have been updated with some wonderful rewards to check out! You can also enjoy some of the annual highlights, such as letter writing, Antonia's Caroling, stocking hanging, and much more (with full details below!). We hope that you'll explore around the Enchanted Village this year and enjoy all that the season has to offer! This year in the Enchanted Village, as mentioned earlier, Santa has undergone a curse by none other than Antonio himself utilizing his, while fake, powerful Heart of Ymir. It's up to you and the rest of the server to build up Christmas of Spirit points by playing the various activities and content available to you to help free Santa of the curse. You can start this year's main quest by first talking to Scrooge. This year's Giftboxes will grant wonderful items - and you can make your own through a variety of games and challenges. Just like last year, minigames may grant you Snowflake Coins in addition to the Giftbox Pieces, as well as special Marbles. These snowflakes can be used at the vending machine in the Enchanted Village to purchase special rental weapons as well as a lovely variety of costumes and classic holiday pets. Marbles are used for the special minigame Santa's Marbles, which is explained in greater detail in the Christmas Events section below. Moreover, you'll need to use these special items to fill your stockings - but you'll be able to earn these through a number of methods - making it possible to collect wonderful items in a great combination of ways! Finally, you'll only be able to obtain certain kinds of Giftbox Pieces through specific games. These Giftbox Pieces are account bound, so you'll need to earn them all individually. Once you do however, you'll be able to give them to Santa, who will reward your hard work with some very special prizes this year. On top of that, you'll be able to earn and do lots more in the Enchanted Village, such as letter writing, caroling, and so much more! How to Participate in This Year's Event Collect Red and Green Giftbox Pieces in order to trade them in and craft your own Christmas Giftboxes! Earn Giftbox Pieces by participating in various minigames, farming and events throughout the Enchanted Village. Each Christmas Giftbox will grant wonderful new items this year! Giftbox Pieces are account bound, so be certain to earn them within a single account to maximize your Christmas Giftbox collection! Most items that come out of the box however, are not bound. Minigames may also grant both Snowflake Coins and Marbles this year as well. Snowflake Coins can be used at the vending machine NPC in the Enchanted Village. You will be able to trade these in for special rental weapons, costumes, and pets! Both Snowflake Coins and Marbles have different purposes: Use Snowflake Coins at both the vending machine NPC in the Enchanted Village, as well as within the Stocking Hanging event in Santa's House. Snowflake coins can be earned both through minigames and also in special Christmas monster maps tied to this year's event. They can also be used in a variety of new quests! Use Marbles to participate in the Santa's Marbles event, by talking to Santa in the Enchanted Village once he has returned. Marbles come from minigames at a low percentage chance. You can also earn great prizes this year through other fun methods, which are listed below in greater detail. These methods include: Antonia's Caroling - where you can earn Snowflake Coins and other useful goodies. Stocking Hanging - fill up your stockings this year in Santa's House in the Enchanted Village and earn something wonderful the very next day. Santa's Marbles - spell out special holiday sayings with various Marble letters to earn some extraordinary prizes! Some minigames will drop Marbles with letters ranging from A-M, while others will grant letters N-Z. Spell out one of Santa's Christmas sayings with these Marbles to earn something really special! Headgear and Pet Quests: Gemma's Quest Enchantress Quest Elf Quest Are you ready to confront Antonio once more? The Christmas Instance Dungeon is returning as part of this year's event! If you were unable to claim the incredible items obtainable from this instance in 2019, this is your second chance to do so! It is still one massive challenge you will not want to miss! Santa has a wonderful variety of games available for all of Midgard's boys and girls this year - including some classic delights and new twists in store! Four main events will provide you with an opportunity to earn Giftbox Pieces in order to construct your very own Christmas Giftbox. These events include the return of Blackjack / Guess the Number, Snowman Building, Amazing Ragna Race and the Christmas Time Trial! Each of these games will drop a combination of either Red or Green Giftbox Pieces. Collect both kinds of pieces to trade them in within the Enchanted Village for your very own Christmas Giftboxes this year! You'll also be able to earn prizes through other events as well. Stocking Hanging, located at Santa's House in the Enchanted Village, will allow you to receive something wonderful. Simply collect the required items for your stocking and wait a day - then check back in over the stockings by the fireplace to receive a special prize! We have also added back the farming maps on the east side of the Enchanted Village! As with the Halloween event, there are three difficulties. The harder the map, the better the loot, including Giftbox Pieces! This year also features the return of Santa's Marbles. There will be a holiday-themed word that you can attempt to spell out by collecting Marbles across various minigames. Each Marble will have a letter printed on it. If you can spell out the holiday word of the day with Marbles in your inventory, you'll receive something incredible! You can participate in this minigame by talking to Santa Claus in the Enchanted Village as well. We hope that you'll give all of this year's events and minigames inside of the Enchanted Village a try - and that you'll earn some wonderful holiday presents along the way! Explore All that Christmas Has to Offer General The Spirit of Christmas System This year due to Santa being cursed by Antonio, The Enchanted Village needs everybody in the Talon Community to help build Christmas Spirit! Every time any activity is completed, you will build up Christmas Spirit! Santa will appear again once a certain target has been reached! General World Flavor During your traveling and grinding sessions you may be greeted by some temporary Christmas mobs that do not normally spawn in the world! These monsters will drop various ingredients that are useful in the Christmas quests! These include the following monsters: Christmas Orc Christmas Jakk Christmas Goblin Santa Poring You will find several of these mobs in world locations that the normal counterparts would spawn at! Christmas Orcs will spawn in all locations Orc Warriors normally spawn at except for the High Orcs map. Christmas Jakks will spawn in all locations Jakks normally spawn at. Christmas Goblins will spawn in all locations Goblins normally spawn at. Santa Porings will spawn in all locations Porings normally spawn at. Christmas Minigames Note: All Minigames apart from Blackjack/GTN may reward you with additional Snowflake Coins and/or Marbles! Blackjack & Guess the Number returns to Christmas! Play special party-based rounds of Blackjack (now more often than before!) rotating alongside a holiday-themed Guess the Number minigame. Strike it rich for your opportunity to win Red Giftbox Pieces! Snowman Building gives you an opportunity to assemble your own special snowman. The magical snowmen of the holiday season are starting to fall apart as the magic of Christmas dwindles - and they will need your help in putting them back together again! Find the Snowman Builder in the Enchanted Village to learn more. You'll need five (5) people in total to start building. Once you have your group together, head out and start rebuilding those snowmen! If you're successful with your efforts, you'll be rewarded with some Red Giftbox Pieces as well as a chance to get Marbles marked N to Z and perhaps even something else! Xmas Time Trials inside of Antonio's Toy Factory returns to the Enchanted Village! Back in the day, Antonio used to do research in his evil toy factory. However now the toy factory is open for all! Anyone can enter now to enjoy the challenge. This is also a team minigame requiring three (3) participants: all 3 members can only stay inside for 10 minutes. If you all are unable to get out after 10 minutes, the team must abandon the mission! It may take some time to learn the best ways of completing this but don't give up! Cooperate with your partners (through #map chat for instance), and complete all the tasks in the allotted time to find a way to retrieve some Green Giftbox Pieces as well as a chance to get Marbles marked A to M and perhaps even something else! The Amazing Ragna Race Returning from Halloween, join Boone Peaches as he hosts The Amazing Ragna Race once more in his homeland, The Enchanted Village! Participate with a group of players in a race up the spiraling hill. There will be Horong Boosters to increase your speed when ran into temporarily, but watch out for those random Ankle Snares as well! You will find Item Boxes along the race track - these will greatly aid you by giving a boost or slowing everybody else down. If you're lucky, you might even swap position with another racer ahead of you or slow everybody else down! The fastest three racers to cross the finishing line on the bridge at the hilltop will be crowned as winners. This time prizes will be different in comparison to Halloween: 1st Place : 6 Green Giftbox Pieces, rare chance to gain a Factory Skeleton Key. 2nd Place: 4 Green Giftbox Pieces. 3rd Place: 2 Green Giftbox Pieces. Consolation Prize (for every participant): Random chance for Snowflake Coins, as long as you participated in the race and made enough progress!

Your items and coins will have transformed into something exquisite, including usable items, OPB and OBBs, hats, stat foods, and even a small chance to earn pet eggs or costumes! Note: stocking hanging contains a master account daily limit, allowing you to only create 3 stockings per day. Santa's Marbles is one of this year's most challenging, and rewarding, special minigames! This will become available to everybody once enough Christmas Spirit is built up by participating in other activities to free Santa from his curse! Collect Marbles throughout this year's events - each Marble will be inscribed with a letter upon it. A new holiday-themed word will be listed for you to try and complete with Marbles from your inventory. If you can spell out the word of the day with your Marbles, you'll be able to trade them in for some truly incredible prizes! Once a player gets a prize, the word will change to something new! Note: Marbles are all account-bound and cannot be traded - so you'll have to play a lot of minigames this year to ensure that you have a wide range of available letters to spell out the word of the day! Marbles may be obtained from any of the following minigames: Snowman Building may reward you with Marbles from letters N through Z. Time Trials may reward you with Marbles from letters A through M. Hanging your Stockings may reward you with any kind of Marble. Blackjack & Guess the Number will not furnish a chance to win any Marbles.

Santa's Factory All new and improved grind map for this year's Christmas borrowing a many elements from this year's popular Halloween grind map! You can access Santa's Factory after getting far enough in this year's Christmas Main Quest. If enough Christmas Spirit has been earned to free Santa, newcomers to this years event don't need to do the quest! You can expect the following 3 difficulties to choose from: Easy : Relatively approachable for just about anybody. This difficulty does not have an MvP monster roaming inside it! However, it has the lowest experience/drop rates. Ingredients for Food Items will not drop here! Intermediate : A step up from Easy, meant for the middle of the road adventurer. An MvP will spawn here! The experience and drops here are very suitable for the intended skill level. Ingredients for Food Items will drop! Nightmare : Meant for the most hardcore of adventurers. The experience and drops are excellent here and are definitely worth the time and effort. However, the monsters are very difficult and the MvP here is especially difficult. If you can, try to bring a party here! Ingredients for Food Items here are significantly higher than Intermediate! Every single day you can come here to earn up to 30 Green Giftbox Pieces! This limit will be reset the next day. The rates are significantly improved the higher you go up in difficulty for Santa's Factory, so choose the difficulty that best suits you! MvP Kills in Santa's Factory contribute a large portion of Christmas Spirit Points toward the server wide goal! Instance Dungeon Provides some incredible challenges just as it did last year, combined with some unbelievable prizes. Prepare to take on this winter's most exciting challenge yet, and to swear revenge on Antonio for what he did to Santa! Enter this year's Instance Dungeon by obtaining a Factory Skeleton Key - obtainable throughout various methods in the course of the event. Rarely by participating in minigames. Every time you kill an MvP in Santa's Factory. Other "mysterious" methods. To begin the quest for access to this year's dungeon and instance, speak with Scrooge. He will be able to tell you more about the methods needed! If enough Christmas Spirit has been earned to free Santa, newcomers to this years event don't need to do the quest! By defeating Antonio, you have a chance at earning the following unique gears, all of which contribute toward a set: In addition to all kinds of minigames and events throughout the Enchanted Village, this year's holiday treats include some additional features and festivities! Enjoy Caroling Antonia this year as part of Santa's holiday fun! She'll be exploring throughout various towns and cities in Midgard - be on the lookout for a global announcement when she is around next! As she sings and moves around town, she'll drop items - and even Snowflake Coins! - around her. Follow her to try and collect these special and festive drops. However, be careful not to stay too close for long, as Caroling Antonia may blow up at any time and knock you out! Once Antonia has blown up, there is a chance that the MVP Krampus will follow in her stead! Krampus may invade the same town/city, and defeating him may reward you with some excellent loot! Lizzie is also back to send out special Christmas Cards to your friends, guildmates, and even secret admirers! Simply speak with Lizzie in the Enchanted Village, fill out the To: and From: sections of your announcement, along with a few lines of text that you'd like her to send. Christmas Cards this year cost 50,000 Zeny to send, and must be approved by a Gamemaster before they can be sent.

  37. Summer is here and TalonRO has a lot in stock for it! To start off, we have our usual monthly updates, the release of the old SQI instances as well as QoL features that will improve your gameplay experience. Expect more updates in the coming weeks. From events such as the Amazing Summer Race to forum and social media events. In addition, our PvM content is jam-packed for the month of July, with BotN: Distortion Tower officially launching from this month onwards. Be sure to check out the thread here to secure a booking for the latest instalment to Battle of the Nine! First off, we'd like to make a short clarification on matters related to skill delays. For starters, to those players who were not aware, the skill delay time has always been set to 200ms for the past few years. During the previous maintenance, we initially changed this to 330ms due to complaints about players being able to use more than 3 skills per second, which was the assumed limit at the time. While this indeed was the case in the past, we quickly resolved this (within 2 days after last month's reboot) by lowering it again to 230ms, which is what the server is set to right now. The increase to 330ms was a mistake on our part, where we judged the situation too hastily. We apologize for this decision. So in this new situation, while it's still slightly higher than the initial 200ms, the 230ms delay is something that 95% of the population will not notice. If anything, it balances the playing field between low-ping players and high-ping players more, which we'd like to think is a good thing! We hope this clarifies some of the concerns everyone has been having! For the past few weeks, a lot of our reviews on RMS have expired and our rank is at risk of dropping from first place! Without sounding like a broken record, we can't stress enough the importance of our presence on RMS -- being our main source of advertisement. The staff team have been working extremely hard to release new content and reshape our older content. Although things are going great, we strongly believe things could get even better -- but we can’t do this alone. It is now time to reach out to you players to help the server grow. We get more than half of our players from Ratemyserver and your reviews are basically FREE advertisement for the server. The more players we get the more active the server will be -- PvM content, WoE, Battlegrounds and more people to socialize and enjoy TRO with. All we ask from you is to take 5 minutes to write or renew your review at Ratemyserver.net. To the players that left a review more than three months ago, please renew it by deleting your old review and writing a new one. Things have changed drastically since half a year ago, so let us know how we are doing! And finally, if you've left a review in the last 3 months, please encourage your friends online to write a review. Thank you. LINK TO REVIEW While we may have revamped the SQI quest, we've always wanted to add the old SQI Seals back into the game. And not just the way they were, but fully instanced! So hereby we are glad to announce the release of Project S or in other words, the return of the seals! You can start these instances in Vanaheim by talking to Asmund at 251,162. Asmund is one of the High Vanir and he was prisoned during Haldur's assault on the realm. You see, Asmund's special ability is time warping, which was seen as a major threat to Haldur. Now that Vanaheim has been liberated, he is once again available to put his special skills to good use! In this case he can help you revisit Nokrah's old shenanigans including the Manuk and Prontera Seals as well as the final battle in Yuno. For reasons beyond his understanding, the Niflheim Seal is not available, weird huh? For this maintenance, we have released the Manuk Seal and Prontera Seal. The final battle in Yuno will be implemented at a later time. Instance Details You need to have unlocked the City of Vanaheim to access these instances. Talk to Asmund at Vanaheim 251,162 to start. Parties for these instances are still to consists of 6 players. Gameplay mechanics for the instances remain mostly the same as they were, including the time limits. Each instance can be completed once per day so if you fail, you can just keep trying. Each instance will reward you with Talon Cash as well as a new currency called Vanaheim Gold. The latter one can be used to purchase a variety of useful items near Asmund. And while the current selection of items is not bad, we will add more items to this selection in the near future! Prontera Seal: Gameplay should be identical to what it was before. Players are dispelled the moment they enter the instance. Ankle Snare and Spider Web are not allowed in this instance. Reward: 50 Talon Cash and 100 Vanaheim Gold. Manuk Seal: Gameplay should mostly be identical to what it was before. We have added a variety of new map announcements when certain things happen during the instance. To start the instance while inside, the party leader should talk to the Valkyrie at spawn. One major change is the so-called Berserk Mode. Previously, when a player was put in Halion's Dream and failed to kill the monsters, both dragons would go in Berserk Mode, which boosted their ATK and INT. As this mode was kind of pointless due to tanks being required to be in Pneuma, we have changed the way this works. Instead of a boost to ATK and INT, the dragons now randomly become immune to either Ranged, Melee or Magic Attacks for 15 seconds. Players are dispelled the moment they enter the instance. Ankle Snare and Spider Web are not allowed in this instance. Osiris Card no longer heals any SP when resurrected on this map. Reward: 25 Talon Cash and 50 Vanaheim Gold. We hope you all enjoy these new instances. The Yuno Instance will be released soon as well as more additions to the city of Vanaheim! As these instances have been rewritten completely, there may be some unintended bugs. Please let us know if you find any, thank you! New TamTam's Odyssey region: Amatsu, Gonryun, Louyang, Ayothaya Fields. Does NOT include dungeon maps. GMC Box Rotations: Smiling Eyes Costume [21225] Gift of Panagia Costume [21322] Wave Challenge Box Rotations: Flying Katashiro Costume [21588] Hi-tech Headset Costume [21555] Monthly Costume Box items: Royal Cloak Costume [21773] [Lower] Poring Basket Costume [21740] [Garment] Walking Fluffy Cat Costume [21031] [Middle] Heavenly Dark Flame Costume [20256] [Middle] Roast Memory Costume [21072] [Upper, Middle, Lower] Demon Crown Costume [21769] [Upper] Celestial Helm Costume [21697] [Upper] Glory Symbol Costume [21738] [Upper] Souvenirs of Izlude Costume [20390] [Upper] Cancer Crown Costume [21233] [Upper] Rose Casquette Costume [20796] [Upper] Bride's Flower Crown Costume [20958] [Upper] Limited Edition Costumes For a duration of one week, you can now purchase this [Visual] Musical Decoration Costume at the Talon Shop for 5500 Talon Cash! The nice weather in Rune Midgard makes you feel like singing when wearing this brand new Garment costume~ Note: even though it's sold for a limited time, it may or may not return in the future to cater towards players from different timezones. General Merged various rAthena updates. Updated some code in the back-end of the WoE scripts. This does not affect anything for players, but do please let us know if anything regarding WoE no longer function properly. It's time to say goodbye to the Morocc Restoration Event. After many months of help, the citizens of Morocc should finally have enough materials to fully reconstruct their beloved city. Expect a fully reconstructed Morocc soon! The vending machines to exchange any leftover tokens will stay around for a little while longer. Triple Inferno now uses its old warping mechanics when respawning, which is back to the front of your team's respawning room. However, a few seconds prior to the warp, a portal will appear that allows you to warp to a random spot instead, giving you two options to respawn. GM Challenge and Ancient Tower now have a waiting time of 1.5 minutes before a player can return to the instance when disconnected. This is done to prevent players from using the return mechanic as an easy way to get resurrected. These rooms are purely designed for players who legitimately disconnected from the game. The waiting time does not apply if the party is on the final floor. Rogue Class can now equip Luna Bow [2] and Lunatic Brooch [1]. Autospells should no longer force a delay on the user. WoE and Siege Potions (and their boxes) can now be stored in carts. Removed Leak and Hardrock Mammoth from the Eden Bounty Board list as their spawn time make it hard to hunt for these. Introduced a new item, similar to Special Bonbon, which boosts the intimacy of your Homunculus instead: Tasty Tree Branch. This currently can only be obtained from the above-mentioned Vanaheim instances. Autospells which proc Sage Endow skills now use the level 4 skill as an absolute minimum in order to prevent the failure chance / weapon removal. By extension, this also gives them the level 4 duration as an added bonus! This affects the following currently available items: Imp Hat [0] Fish Head Hat [0] Fish Bowl Hat [0] Gryphon Hat [0] Aviator Hat [0] Sleeper Hat [0] The following weapons can now be enchanted at Malangdo: Bardiche [2] (Coin Cost x 2) Desert Twilight [2] (Coin Cost x 4) Giant Encyclopedia [2] (Coin Cost x 4) Can only be enchanted once! Lacrima Stick [2] (Coin Cost x 4) Has the same restrictions as Dark Thorn Staff [0]! Luna Bow [2] (Coin Cost x 1) Orc Archer's Bow [0] (Coin Cost x 1) Pole Axe [1] (Coin Cost x 1) Thin Blade [2] (Coin Cost x 2) Veteran Hammer [2] (Coin Cost x 4) Antique Book now casts Ganbantein on the target prior to using Pulse Strike. Special Bonbon now prevents you from using it when you do not have a pet active. Removed some account-bound pets from the Valkyrie Bazaar as they caused too much confusion. Bug Fixes Fixed a bug with Vending where sometimes the window would get stuck when a player tries to set up a vending shop. Fixed a bug with Basilica where it would not cast when a Guild Aura skill was active on a guild leader character. In addition, it no longer checks for items on the ground, skills on the ground or pets/homunculi/mercenaries nearby. Fixed Gertie Card not allowing you to use certain item-obtained skills such as Sight. Fixed Spread Attack not working on certain maps. Fixed a bug where Rifles did not have their damage calculated correctly. This should boost the damage of all Rifle weapons. In addition, Rifles are now also affected by the Ring of Nibelungen and Drum on the Battlefield penalties as all the other ranged weapons are. Fixed an exploit in Ancient Juperos where players could relog when they were in jail and warp back to the start of the map. Players are now automatically warped into jail when they relog to level 2. Fixed several SQIs where instead of Non-Boss/Boss Resistance being applied, Damage was being applied. This affects Twin Fang, Scouter, and Hira Shurikat. Fixed Heaven's Feather and Hell's Fire [2] and Altea & Ares [2] Bullet Reduction scripts from denying skill usages below the normal ammo requirement despite the script's reduction. Example: Bullet Shower normal bullet count -> 5, Inventory Bullets -> 3, +8 Reduced amount -> 2, skill usage would be denied. Whereas now, it should be allowed as long as you have at least 2 bullets, etc. Fixed Perfect Cloak/Hide bonus on Twin Fang and Sherwood allowing certain mobs to still use ground skills on you despite being unseen to the mob. Fixed a bug in Ancient Tower where a player could join an instanced party after the instance was created, resulting in them not properly being processed within the instance. Fixed Thunderstorm Cloud not adding a further autospell chance when using higher Lightning Bolt and Thunderstorm skill level. The hat has been updated to fix this issue with the following: When learning either skill greater than level 5, it will now add 20 + skill level * 2. As opposed to before, where it simply added 10 + skill level, resulting in the same rate as before with level 10. Description fixes: Fixed Death Fire mentioning it gives 10% more damage when it doesn't. Fixed Malangdo Snow Crab mentioning 20% long range attack boost rather than 10%. Fixed description of Running skill mentioning a "+(10*SkillLV)% damage to the Kick skills" skill boost which is not the case. It does still have the regular ATK boost for each level you have invested in the skill. Fixed Ice Falchion wrongly mentioning that Freeze happens when hit, rather than when attacking. Also fixed the mention of a 1% chance to freeze yourself. This is 0.1%. Fixed Edge wrongly mentioning that the Curse chance is 3%. This is 0.3%. Fixed all versions of Doom Slayer wrongly mentioning that Stun happens when hit, rather than when attacking. Added rates of Bleeding status to Ygnus Stale description. Added rates of Curse status to End Sektura description. Added rates of Bleeding status and Joint Beat skill to Ivory Lance description. Fixed Earthen Bow not mentioning that the Stone Curse chance is part of the combo with Stone Arrow. Fixed Ivory Knife mentioning that the Bleeding status is cast on yourself. This should be on the enemy. Fixed Bloody Shell wrongly mentioning that the External Bleeding chance is 5%. This is 1%. Added missing External Bleeding chances to descriptions of all Huuma Giant Wheel Shuriken.

  40. As we continue refining the SQI revamp, we've introduced several tweaks to ingredients as well as some general QoL changes! In addition, we've reworked a few mobs (particularly Biolabs Lv4 monster skills) which you can review below. In other news, we've noticed a dip in RMS reviews lately and would like to take this time to ask for your help. RateMyServer is one of the biggest ways that new players find TalonRO, and it is also one of the best ways to help the server grow and say thanks. Writing a review is an easy process and takes less than five minutes. As always, we hope you enjoy these latest updates and appreciate your time for helping us maintain our ranking on RateMyServer! SQI Updates: Party Leaders can now choose to skip cutscenes during SQI Instances. This can only be done if the party leader has cleared the entire SQI quest. The reward decay during the SQI instances now only gets set when a player actually gets a reward. The reward decay weekly reset now also happens on Thursday night rather than just Sunday night. Increased the base Essence reward rate on Battle for Vanaheim from 25% to 30%. The Job Changer now resets your SQI bonuses (with an advance warning) when you cross transcend. Updated the droprates of several (mainly SQI-related) items: Violent Coelacanth in the Malangdo Culvert Hard Weekly instance now drops Ivory Knife[2] at 12%. Mutant Coelacanth in the Malangdo Culvert Hard Weekly instance now drops Tournament Shield[1] at 12%. Increased droprate of Ice Crystal on Pot Dofle from 3% to 6%. Increased droprate of Ghost Chill on all LH4 regular mobs from 0.03% to 0.60%. Increased droprate of Krishna[2] on Eremes Guile mob from 0.03% to 0.15%. Increased droprate of Croce Staff [1] on Margaretha Sorin mob from 0.06% to 0.15%. Increased droprate of Giant Crossbow [2] on Cecil Damon mob from 0.03% to 0.12%. Increased droprate of Falken Blitz [2] on Cecil Damon mob from 0.03% to 0.09%. Increased droprate of Lacrima Stick [2] on Kathryne Keyron mob from 0.03% to 0.15%. Biolabs Updates: All Biolabs level 3 and level 4 miniboss monsters now have loot tables. They are mostly strongly improved versions of the normal mobs with an additional High Weapon's Box added to them. See the below spoiler for drop tables. NOTE: the minibosses as MVP slaves do not drop any loot. Removed the level requirement for entering Biolabs level 3. Updated the skillsets of most Biolabs level 4 monsters. This includes normal monsters, minibosses and MVPs. It includes a variety of bugfixes as well as an increase of difficulty as these monsters were missing a substantial amount of their necessary skills: Battlegrounds Updates: The cost of the BG Supplies Upgrade now roughly depends on the amount of days remaining in a month. This way you no longer have to pay full price if the month is almost ending. When dual-wielding Elemental Sword, your MATK is now reduced by 70%. This applies only when in a BG map. When a Crusader class dies in BG through Sacrifice or Devotion, they now properly increase the kill count where applicable and drop a Skull in Triple Inferno. War of Emperium Updates: All the WoE castles have rotated into the following castles: gefg_cas04 becomes payg_cas03 aldeg_cas05 becomes gefg_cas02 prtg_cas02 becomes prtg_cas05 payg_cas04 becomes aldeg_cas02 arug_cas03 becomes arug_cas02 schg_cas03 becomes schg_cas01 Every additional Dark Priest Card now reduces the SP decrease amount on every equipped card by 1%. For example: 1 Dark Priest card will reduce the opponent's SP by 10%. 2 Dark Priest cards will each reduce the opponent's SP by 9%, making it 18% in total instead of 20%. 5 Dark Priest cards will each reduce the opponent's SP by 6%, making it 30% in total instead of 50%. Misc Updates: Improved the Entweihen Crothen Card. In addition to the existing +50 MATK, you now also get +10 additional MATK for every 10 Base INT, up to a maximum of 50 additional MATK. That means that at 50 Base INT, this card will now give you +100 MATK in total. Increased the rate of the Class Change (summoning an MVP) skill appearing in Abracadabra by 4x of the official values, making it closer to our previous custom values. Bard and Dancer songs now end when a player gets on their mount. Bugfixes: Fixed Goldsmithing Dagger giving +10 raw MATK instead of the intended +10% MATK. Fixed Stripping skills (except Full Strip) on Boss type monsters. Rogue class can now strip Boss type monsters, resulting in the following effects on boss monsters: Strip Weapon: Weapon ATK -25%. Strip Shield: DEF -15%. Strip Armor: VIT -40%. Strip Helm: INT -40%. Full Strip does NOT work here. Deluge, Volcano, and Violent Gale should now stack properly with other ground based skills. Fixed Brandish Spear having a dead cell at the location of the user. Fixed Gemstone Ignoring effects (such as Mistress Card) from being removed when Bonus Bundle expires. Fixed a bug in WoE:SE castle investments where after a certain level of economy, the upgrade cost would be 0 zeny. Fixed one of the Eden Group weapon enchants mentioning Plant ATK instead of Brute ATK. Last Sunday/Monday (depending on where in the world you are) was officially TalonRO's 14 year anniversary! To celebrate this, we would like to treat you all to a 12x EXP Event (not 14x, ya scrubs). The event will stay up until next monthly reboot, so you'll be able to enjoy the event for nearly two weeks!

  46. Ingame Mains: Windseeker and Aluria Stille Characters Used for Screenshot: Attentionseeker and Aluria Stille (two i's instead of L's) Ingame Classes: Assassin Cross (99) and High Priest (99) ----------------- Story ----------------- "Winds! What in the world are you doing?!" she gasped from afar. His knife was high in the air, poised to plunge into the poring, albeit green instead of the usual pink. Maybe it was green because it had better loot? Winds's eyes under his shaggy hair were aglow with delight, but as he dropped his entire weight into the stab, he bounced off. ... bounced? His knife didn't even puncture the green balloon, and it turned around with a mighty grin in its blobby face. With a squish of its cheeks, it sprung into action, headbutting and denting Winds's chestplate with a fearsome strength. Winds and Aluria have only seen the weaker, pinker cousins, but this poring was of stiffer stuff. A poporing, raised in the Novice Grounds for stronger folk, and not to be trifled with by beginners. Aluria leapt to action, dropping the Sticky Mucus she was admiring and unsheathing her Novice Main Gauche, running full speed to Winds's rescue. It seemed that with every stride, the poporing dealt another blow to the poor, poor Winds. With bloody regret on his tongue, he screeched as he ran towards his fiancee. "Heeeeeeeeeeelp meeeeee!" Winds ran, nearly tripping over his own legs. But unseen to him, the poporing was winding up for its final blow. It jumped high into the air, and all Winds saw as it descended was a green blob eclipsing the sun, right for his face. ------ "Damn it Winds," Aluria sighed as she nursed him red potions back to consciousness. The poporing scampered off, with obvious glee in its face. And as Winds slowly woke up, he saw his fiancee's lovely blue eyes looking down at him. His head was pounding.

  48. Bababoowee's Roast Beef - TalonRO 2020 Holiday Cooking Contest Storyline: After a few boozy cocktails on Christmas Eve with friends, we decided to go level at a dungeon. After a few hours of leveling, we started to hear our tummies grumbling. We got hangry. We got tired and weaker, I fell and started tumbling. I tumbled into a Majoruros and thought to myself, “He’s looking really yummy”. Maybe the Majoruros can go into my tummy?!?! While I was spacing out, my friends above yelled “BLAHBLAHBLAWOOWEE, INCOMING!” The Majoruros was headed straight to me with his huge hammer ready to strike at me. Without hesitation, I took my wrench from my pocket and I whacked at him. How dare he!? But I also stood there and thought to myself “damn, I just killed a beast” Well, that’s too bad, it’s time for a big feast. Ingredients for Roast Beef 1 Roughly 7-pound prime rib, bone in. This would feed at least 7-8 people. *I asked the butcher to cut off the bones, stuff it with some garlic, and tie the bones back on. I prefer to have the bone in because I find this to be more flavorful and the bone acts like a rack, so it cooks the meat evenly. 2-3 carrots chopped into medium-large chunks. 1 ½ tablespoon flakey sea salt 1 ½ tablespoon freshly ground pepper ½ paprika ½ garlic powder ½ onion powder 3-4 tablespoon of olive oil 1 onion Instructions Step 1: season the prime rib a day beforehand. Mix the salt and pepper and rub it all over the meat. Place in a deep baking dish. Return the beef back to the fridge, uncovered to draw out excess moisture. Step 2: It is important to have your beef at room temperature before cooking it. Since this is a pretty big cut of beef, I would suggest taking it out of the fridge and letting it rest for at least 5 hours. If you don’t do this, the meat will not cook evenly. Step 3: Chop your carrots into medium-large chunks. Not too small that they will burn in the oven. You can also save a few pieces to roast later; along with some veggies. Drizzle some olive oil on and sprinkle some salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Mix well. Place these aside. Step 4: After the meat rested for ~5 hours, preheat the oven at 455F. You can put the chopped carrots into the tray with the beef. Step 5: After the oven is ready, place the beef into the middle rack and bake at 455F for 15 minutes to get a nice golden sear. Step 6: After the 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature down to 325F to cook for around 2 hours. Cooking at a lower temperature guarantees an evenly cooked roast that is sealed with juiciness. My family and friends prefer their beef medium rare. I highly suggest using a cooking thermometer. Step 7: Once you’re done with baking the meat, you can insert the thermometer. I pull it out when it is around 130F because the meat will continue to cook after you remove it from the oven. Step 8: Please remember to allow the meat to rest for at least 20 minutes. Ingredients for Au jus: Drippings from the roast Onions from the roast 1 cup of red wine Salt and pepper to taste 2-3 tablespoons of flour or cornstarch Instructions: Step 1: Pour in the beef stock over medium-high heat. Add in the red wine, drippings, and onions from the roast and boil for 15 minutes. Strain with strainer. Step 2: Add in flour or cornstarch to thicken. Turn off stove and stir. Ingredients for corn: 3 cups of frozen corn 4 tablespoons of butter (can be unsalted or salted) Instructions: Step 1: Put frozen corn in a pan over medium high heat. Step 2: Add in the butter and stir for 5 minutes. Sprinkle some pepper and salt to taste. Serve with the prime rib. Ingredients for Yorkshire pudding ¾ cup of Flour 100ml Almond milk Olive oil Salt and pepper Instructions: Step 1: preheat oven to 425F. Step 2: Pour a teaspoon of olive oil in each muffin tray compartment and place the tray into the oven to heat up. Step 3: Beat eggs, almond milk, flour, and a tiny pinch of salt and pepper. Beat until well combined. Pour mixture into a jar. Step 4: Remove tray with oven mitts carefully and quickly pour in the mixture into the muffin tray. Step 5: Shove muffin tray back into the oven and bake for 13 – 15 minutes. Should look like this when done. Assemble your dish. Final Product: I also forgot to take a picture of my ign the night before. So I had to use leftovers the next morning to take another picture! Hope this is okay!
