    We originally planned this reboot a few days later and it would include a few more features, but due to the server crash earlier, we decided to make it happen earlier. So without further ado, here are the changes of this reboot: @whosell and @whobuy work again, after they were temporarily removed earlier today due to a server crash. GEC and other timer based scripts should now function properly like before. This means using skills like Blessing no longer reset the timer. Monsters should now only aggro targets within 3 cells between the target and monster like before. Frenzy should now calculate HP correctly. Lovers Card via Tarot Card can no longer teleport boss monsters. Item Heal Scripts should now function properly like before. Includes mechanics such as Hell Poodle Card and Ranked Potion Bonus. Skid Traps no longer immobilize targets that are caught inside it. Traps and Ice Walls can now be damaged by monsters again. Unit skills will no longer immediately expire on death. Includes skills such as Ice Wall, Storm Gust, and Magnus Exorcismus. This prevents a skill like Ice Wall from disappearing when you die. Unit damaging skills will no longer deal damage when the user is dead. Includes skills such as such as Storm Gust and Magnus Exorcismus. This is opposed to how we previously fixed it, where the skill would just disappear when you die. Naturally spawned MvPs will now start dropping tickets again: Drop has been updated to Talon Cash Tickets (4 points each). Asura Cooldown has been altered: PvP/BG/WoE: Now 8 seconds (down from 15). @charinfo should now properly display EXP progression for Jewelcrafting and Cooking. Removed Glittering Jacket from arrow crafting table. Endless Tower re-entry from Alberta now costs the right amount of zeny instead of 50,000 at all times. Changed TamTam's Odyssey drops to pre-Iduna values: Pre-Iduna you got 1 Copper Coin (2 Talon Cash) at a certain rate. Post-Iduna you got 1 Talon Cash (0.5 Copper Coin) at a double rate. Now, you get 2 Talon Cash at the same rate as before Iduna. A majority of the major bugs have been fixed now. There's still a few more to go, but we will start diverting some resources to content creation. So be sure to look forward to that!

    August 13 update. Few more bugfixes done: Fixed not being able to change guild member position. Fixed boss monsters (not MVPs) dropping equipment items at a 1x rate instead of 3x. Fixed monsters in Wave Challenge sometimes spawning in walls. Fixed Nidhoggur's Nest instance not warping players properly during certain parts of the instance. This also fixes several other instances like Octopus Cave. Original topic: Now that most bugs (but not all of them yet!) have been solved, we are able to dedicate some time to actually returning some beloved features to our server. It has taken a little longer than we had initially hoped, but we're on the right track now. Thank you once again for your patience during this transitional phase! So, without further ado~ GM Challenge and Wave Challenge As the instancing system on rAthena has changed quite a bit, these scripts required a significant amount of recoding. Our initial idea of implementation unfortunately did not work out, so we had to go back to the drawing board. That being said, both are now fully implemented and should have full functionality as you are used to. The process of signing up for the instances has slightly changed. After the party leader generates the instance, each member has to separately enter the room. You will end up in a second (instanced) lobby where the party leader will be able to warp everybody in and start the instance. We have also slightly altered the way Return Lobbies work. In both GM Challenge and Wave Challenge, players can no longer disconnect for more than 15 minutes and then return to the game. If this happens, they will simply be warped back to Prontera. Another change was done to GM Challenge alone. We no longer use the Return Ticket system. Players can now return to the GM Challenge as often as they want, however you can now only warp back inside if at least one of your party members is still alive. If your entire party is dead, you can no longer use the Return Lobby. Voting system replacement First off, we have now enabled the Voting Points Converter NPC in the Reward Guru building. You will be able to claim your voting points as Talon Cash there right away. Now, you are likely aware of the Voting System no longer being utilized by TalonRO. Most of the topsites are full of Ads and many times even serve malware. Topsites in general are a thing from the past and based on our statistics, they don't actually result in many new players at all. For that reason, we decided to get rid of them and replace them with something new. The idea behind implementing the new system is that it should take a very small amount of time to get a reward. After all, voting didn't take more than a minute and you could get 40 Talon Cash every day if you kept track of the timings. After some digging, we found that people's Kafra Storages are absolutely full of Misc items that serve almost no purpose. So with the new system, we will be making use of that. You will now find an NPC called Daily Cash Betty in the same room as the Reward Guru. Every day, you can talk to that NPC (once per person) and get a very quick Item Collection quest. The amounts will range from 10 to 20 items. Complete the quest and you will be given 40 Talon Cash. This is the same amount you would get if you would vote on all voting sites twice per day. The items required for this quest are extremely easy and can be farmed on low-end monsters. We hope this new idea is a fair compromise after losing the Vote for Points system. Please let us know what you think~ New Donation System Another major change we've done this reboot is the Donation System. One complaint we've heard a lot in the past is the inability to donate with methods other than Credit Cards. With the method we used in the past, adding other options unfortunately was not viable. This has now changed. We are now utilizing the Commerce plugin on our forum software. As a result, the Donation page now links to our Store here on the forums, where the donation process will take place. This brings forth a few changes: Instead of being able to donate any custom amount, we now offer fixed packages. The great advantage of this new system is that we can now offer Bonus Talon Cash for people who make a larger donation. This was something that players have suggested for years now and we are finally able to offer this. The packages are as follow: $5.00 -> 500 Talon Cash (no bonus) $10.00 -> 1080 Talon Cash (8% bonus) $25.00 -> 2750 Talon Cash (10% bonus) $50.00 -> 5625 Talon Cash (12.5% bonus) $75.00 -> 8625 Talon Cash (15% bonus) $100.00 -> 11750 Talon Cash (17.5% bonus) $200.00 -> 24000 Talon Cash (20% bonus) $500.00 -> 62500 Talon Cash (25% bonus) Next to the usual payment through Cards, we now offer Google Pay as well. Google Pay is a new payment method that allows you to easily pay through either your browser or (preferably) through your mobile phone. A big advantage of this is that Google Pay offers support for PayPal. This should open up the donation system to people who were not able to do so before due to the lack of a Credit Card. While Google Pay is not available yet for all countries, it's quite wide-spread now and continues to become available to more countries. Donations are now directly tied to the new Support system. If you have any questions about a donation you made, you can directly send a support ticket through the payment. Bugfixes and improvements And lastly, we have of course fixed various bugs and made several improvements again: Lif's Mental Change skill now has a shorter cooldown to accommodate not being able to reset the cooldown by recalling the Homunculus: Level 1: 10 minutes to 2 minutes Level 2: 15 minutes to 4 minutes Level 3: 20 minutes to 6 minutes Fixed Rainbowrings never opening the portal to the Ginnunggap. Bragi Cast Reduction portion no longer adds together with items/cards and now multiplies like it used to. Cart Termination now properly goes through Cicada Skin Shedding and Auto Guard as officially intended and how it worked before. Fixed an exploit where you could change the Guild Leader by right clicking in the Guild Window and thus bypassing the Reward Guru. Thank you to the people who have reported this and shame on those who have been exploiting this the past days. In order to make it harder for scammers to trick players into believing they are talking to a GM, you can no longer join a player chatroom if your job level is lower than 50. This system was already in place for creating a chatroom, but not yet for joining. While we understand that it's a mild annoyance to the legit players, it's done in an effort to keep everyone safe. Like before, transcendent classes do not have this level requirement.

    We are already five days into the Iduna update and are still hard at work making everything work properly. Today we've completed quite a big maintenance which solved a number of outstanding bug reports. We hope this improves everyone's TalonRO experience! Also, we are still doing our best to find out what's causing the in-game client crashes. We believe we're on the right track and will hopefully be able to release some fixes for that in the coming days. For the time being, if you or any of your friends have difficulty playing the game, we have updated our Iduna Troubleshooting Guide with a number of more articles, including a fix for players using dxVoodoo to play in 2k or higher resolutions, so be sure to check that out! For now, here's the changelog: Merged latest rAthena updates. Fixed character deletion not working properly. You should now be able to delete properly by using your account's e-mail address. Official walk pathfinding has been disabled and should now function like before. Ranged mobs should now see you when cutting corners, for example. Official Sharpshooting and North Wind behavior has been disabled and these skills should now behave like the old server. Official cell stacking limit has been disabled and reverted back to legacy behaviour. Heal Skill script formula has been corrected. Headgears such as Bacsojin should now properly work again. You can no longer use self targeted skills with storage open such as Ruwach. Bowling Bash no longer has the Gutter Line. Autospells no longer have any cast delays. You can no longer pick up items during Chase Walk. Fire Pillar can no longer be pushed by Sight Blaster. Ammo is no longer unequipped when switching to a non-bow weapon. Setting "monster remaining" announcements on Endless Tower should work again. Players setting up a private channel in-game can no longer force everyone to autojoin it. Guild leaders no longer get a storage cooldown upon opening Guild Storage. Fixed warp coordinates of castle flags. Fixed castle flags in towns not working anymore. Ground skills are now cleared when the caster dies. @identifyall no longer gives you a message for every identified item and only gives you a message for being successful or not. Ghostdancer additional buffs on soul link no longer work if the skill fails. Fixed mining rocks sometimes timing out unnecessarily. Fixed some incorrect NPC icon locations. Thank you all for your patience. Much love!

    Greetings, Talonians! We hope that you are having a wonderful weekend - and we've taken the time to perform a quick update to resolve a few essential issues and overall bug squashing! Please note: if you or your fellow players are having difficulty accessing TalonRO, we have updated our Iduna Troubleshooting Guide with a number of more articles, including a fix for players using dxVoodoo to play in 2k or higher resolutions, so be sure to check that out! Our latest round of edits include changes and fixes to the following: Fixed party EXP sharing. Leech away~ Bowling Bash knock back has been fixed. It should now consistently push back 1 cell as intended. If there is any other buggy behavior, please make a bug report. Charge Attack now updates your position correctly on the client when using RSX carded armor. Players can now change the text color of their private channels. Removed the party size requirement on entering Dimensional Gorge (like y'all weren't already using dummies for that already anyway, amirite?). The following skills can no longer be used in towns, indoor maps, and Tam Tam's Odyssey maps: Moonlit Water Mill Ice Wall Greed Sphere Mine Bio Cannibalize Plant Cultivation Basilica Abracadabra Fixed an issue with Jewelcrafting. The Jewelcrafting skill should not properly be awarded upon finishing the related Jewelcrafting quest. Removed official traps activation behavior. We are now using legacy behavior, where traps should activate immediately upon stepping on the first trap. This goes for both PvP environments and monsters. Thank you all for your patience as we continue to work on refining and improving our latest round of updates with Iduna! We hope that you enjoy and that you're having a wonderful time in Midgard - and, as always, happy gaming!

    While we are approaching the end of August, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! Due to how busy we've been with the Project Iduna launch, we haven't had as much time to spend on the event development as we usually have. For that reason, the Treasure Hunting part of the event will not be making its return this year. That being said, the event is once again full of new rewards and challenges. Please check it out in our dedicated Summer Race Event Topic! Furthermore, we have made a bunch of other changes and bugfixes: Added new atcommand @taloncash. This displays your current Talon Cash amount. Removed some difficult items from Daily Cash Betty and added some easier ones. Fixed incorrect Joint Beat damage scaling, which should also fix Lord Knight Card's auto-cast from missing every single time. Fixed Ganbantein not consuming gemstones with Mistress Effect, since it should never do this officially. Removed Impossible/Inaccessible/Unreasonable missions from Taekwon Mission. Changed the location of some Eden Group Officers so that they don't block other NPCs. Guild Castle treasures now spawn at 1am server time instead of midnight. This is done to ensure they don't despawn when we reboot around our usual midnight schedule. We hope you enjoy the updates. As always, there's more to come!

    It is our great pleasure to finally unveil the latest update to TalonRO: Iduna. This is our most anticipated update, as well as massive in scope - one of the most ambitious things that we have ever attempted in our quest to update your experience on TalonRO and to bring the game that you love into an entirely new state of being. The Iduna update represents many months of work, testing, iterations, feedback, technical know-how, and intensive balancing all to bring you an entirely updated experience while preserving the aspects of our beloved game. The Iduna Update is first and foremost a switch to rAthena - a completely comprehensive engine which underpins all of TalonRO’s mechanics and gameplay characteristics. This update is far from trivial - rather, it provides an entirely new platform by which to offer incredible new content, updates, and many more features that preserve the best of your experience while bring it into entirely new frame. We are pleased to announce that this transition is complete, and TalonRO will remain the same wonderful pre-Renewal experience that you have come to love, while bringing the best of the latest innovations to bear and transform your gaming experience into one that is fit to continue our 12 year tradition. The Iduna update is all about allowing you to have more fun, making your in-game expeditions more memorable, intense, and making your time on TalonRO the best to date! The updates that accompany Iduna are almost too memorable to mention individually – rather, this update represents a composite of ne innovations and content that are designed to work synergistically together and take this monumental update into a wonderful new experience for you and your adventures through Midgard. The Iduna update will require you to update TalonRO - but this is easily done by simply running your patcher and downloading the update as normal. To ensure that you are receiving the latest content updates with Iduna, simply start TalonRO through your patcher, and let the update install and commence. In the event that the patcher fails to properly install the latest patch for Iduna, simply manually install the latest download from the TalonRO webpage by accessing our download link here: https://talonro.com/download/ Once downloaded, please reinstall TalonRO and overwrite your files in your TalonRO folder, then proceed to patch as normal. Please note: Homunculus AI will need to be reinstalled manually, as this latest update contains compatibility changes that will presently be incompatible with existing custom AIs. If this situation is applicable to you, please reinstall your homunculus AI manually after the Iduna update has been patched to TalonRO. Important: MirAI will unfortunately no longer work with the new Iduna client. Any other AI, given that you are using their latest version, should work. DLL related issues [MSVCR100.dll], refer to [this download] to get Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86). When first launching TalonRO, you will also be introduced to our new anti-cheating system software – called Gepard Shield. Gepard Shield represents an entirely new level of sophistication in security for your account, as well as allows for all players to participate on equal footing by invoking more comprehensive anti-cheating technology. At first launch, Gepard Shield will likely prompt you with a message warning you about illegal files within your folder - however, please note that this is nothing to be concerned about, as this is a one time error message. Instead, Gepard Shield will automatically move a number of files into a new folder within your TalonRO directory, ensuring an intended fix that allows you to play the game normally. The Iduna update features a number of incredible new additions – many of which are too numerous to almost mention! However, were happy to provide an update and recap of some of our most important highlights - many of which you’ve seen before in our teaser information, but some of which we are happy to share with you as new features that we hope you will find wonderful and entirely welcome: For starters, as with any major release, there's a good chance that bugs will be around. If you find anything that seems wrong or exploitable, please report it in our Bug Report Forum. Currently, the Control Panel is offline. Please bear with us as we re-implement it, likely this weekend still. Read more about that below. Also, along with a few other missing features that will take us a little longer to re-implement, we currently have GM Challenge, Wave Challenge and the Reward Guru disabled. This will take us only a tiny bit of time to fix. They were a bit too major to release straight away with our Iduna launch but will be released very shortly! Now, a small selection of some of Iduna's new features. Numerous new and changed features you will have to find out in-game by exploring! For screenshots, also refer to our Project Iduna announcement topic. First off, check out the Project Iduna announcement topic for screenshots and features A lot of game mechanics fixes. Moving to rAthena means lots of skills or mechanics that worked the wrong way are now fixed. This may give you an advantage but it may also mean gameplay can become slightly more challenging! Poem of Bragi revamp. Check our Dev Blog for more information. Gepard Shield: Our old anti-cheating software has not been updated in many years and is no longer being used. We have replaced it by Gepard Shield which is much more powerful and will make it even harder for botters and other cheaters to get ahead of you! Channel System: rAthena has replaced the !main/!market/!recruit systems You now chat by using #main, #market and #recruit in your whisper box You can also bind a channel to your regular chat so that typing in public will show up in the global chat of your choice. Simply type @channel bindto #channelname You can now also set up your own private channel, available to share with other people. Use @channel for more information about this! New commands: !ping Gathers specific information regarding your ping within 2 minutes after use including average, minimum, and maximum reply time, as well as packets sent, received, and lost. !vsync Enables and Disables the limit of FPS. /navi mapname x/y Draws a path from your current location to the given mapname, x, y. /quake Disables screen shake effects. /cashshop Disables and Re-Enables Cash Shop Icon. [Shift + Click] on Inventory Items Creates an item link in the chat which can be sent to other players. It can be clicked, which produces the same effect as if you right clicked the item. This feature is also present in whosell and whobuy! Many, many more, such as identifying items with a single click, adding items to Kafra Storage with a single click, you name it! New Mechanics/Features: Talon Cash & Cash Shop Replacing Copper Coins, Talon Cash is a new intangible currency which has a value of 2, in comparison to Copper Coins previously having a value of 1. For comparison, this means 100 Talon Cash = 1 Talon Coin. Note: Talon Coins will still be around as a tradeable method for Talon Cash. Replacing a big portion of the Reward Guru, the Cash Shop can be found at the top right of the Client. Here you can purchase Special Items, Weapons, Armors, Hats, Cards, Kahos, and PCBs which was previously done with the Reward Guru. There is a new Search Item feature to quickly find what you're looking for! This can only be used in town maps. MvP Tombstone Replacing !killannounce, a tombstone will now spawn where an MvP previously died. Navigation System Quickly find any NPC or Mob in the game utilizing the Navigation system. Additionally, you can have it draw a path should it be able to find a path to your choice. This system is still a WIP and does not contain absolutely everything as of yet. New Bank System By pressing [Ctrl + b] or clicking the button in your main menu you can access the brand new bank feature built into the client which offers more possibilities than the previous bank system. This can only be used in town maps. Rodex [Mail] System Replacing the mailbox, there is now a built in mail system in the client, accessible through a button in your main menu. You will get a notification at the top right when you receive mail. This can only be used in town maps. Equipment Swapping When opening your equipment window and pressing [Set Item Setting], you can now set a secondary equipment set. Then by pressing [Change], you will automatically switch your gear sets. This feature has a cooldown! Item Comparison When you have items equipped on your character, you you right click items in your inventory, they are now compared side by side. Replay System The replay system is now implemented fully as of this client and can be used properly. You can replay videos by going into the client and clicking Replay in the login window. Favorites Tab A new tab in your inventory below Etc. You can place any item in here, and to do so you simply drag onto the Fav tab. Having items in this tab allows you Lock NPC selling as well as align the items. New Merchant Carts Cart users can now utilize new cart designs by using the Change Cart 2 skill! Character position swapping With a new feature from the Reward Guru, you can now swap character positions within the same account. Updated Mechanics: Quest Log Offers more categories and ways to present quests. By default, all quests will end up in the Act tab. This quest log will later be updated after the initial launch. Party Window Party member entries can now be dragged outside of the party window, placed on the side, and accessed without having to open the party window itself. Guild Window and New Guild Skill Guild members will now have a last logged on date below their member entry. Creating a guild requires an Emperium as an item again, rather than it being completely free. New skill [Guild Storage Expansion]. This skill is needed to expand the storage space of the guild storage and usage of the storage. All existing guilds have received 5 extra levels to make up for the 5 new skill points required. Homunculus/Pets Pets and Homunculi now have a hunger meter to show when you have to feed them. More pets should have their intended dialogue now! Exact Stat Progression is now displayed every time a Homunculus levels up, making it much easier to pinpoint the exact stats you want when training. Game Account Gender Gender is now decided by character as opposed to your account. This means you can have male and female characters on the same account now. Whosell/Whobuy Now supports the new item link feature when making searches. Also has a cleaned up information display and is more accurate than before. Coming Soon: !expcount, Lottery, Card Recycling, Slot Machine, and Plagiarism NPC. For now these features are omitted, but will return shortly after this launch. Achievements System Will be functional at a currently unconfirmed date, built into the client and offers new ways to reward players! Battlegrounds Queing System Will be completed and operational after Battleground's short hiatus. Control Panel Revamp Moreover, the Iduna update also has given our player control panel a completely new look and feel - which is intended to synchronize seamlessly with the new back and changes in rAthena. This new panel is very rudimentary for the time being - owed to the fact that the internal structure of rAthena is completely different, and our player control panel had to be revamped from the ground up! With the revamp of the Control Panel, we have also decided to retire the Vote for Points sytem. Topsites are a relic from an ancient time that don't really benefit the server in any way anymore. On top of that, the system is very prone to abuse. In the coming weeks we will replace this with a new system to get you your free Talon Cash with little effort! This means an opportunity to completely rebuild the clear control panel from scratch, along with redesigning the user experience and interface for a more modern, slick, and lightweight panel experience that will enable and facilitate better usability and design. Additional pages for the control panel will be added back in later weeks as we continue to build out its functionality and form. Thank you for your patience as we continue to get all of the panel components up and running - we know that that will be worth the wait as we bring you a much more streamlined player control panel experience! Finally, the Iduna update is only the tip of the iceberg - as we mentioned, this switch over to rAthena enables us to more readily add in and improve existing features within TalonRO. Some of these changes include edits to classic additions and innovations from TalonRO, which are now made to be compatible and updated within this incredible new change. These changes are as follows: Our many minigame offerings are also undergoing a new revamp as well! Many games within the TalonRO ecosystem will be replaced by our newest innovation: the Comodo Carnival! Details on this latest change will be forthcoming in a subsequent update - and were looking forward to completely renovating the minigame experience to bring you something fresh, innovative, and most of all: fun! This feature will be coming soon, most likely within a week from launch, complete with the old minigames (including long needed improvements and tweaks to these games) and some brand new games added to the roster! So please hang in just a bit longer. It will be worth the wait! We are presently working on a revamp of this feature, meaning that all Seals have been disabled for the time being as we undergo this renovation. Please note that SQI creation and the bonuses area are both still open. We’re looking forward to unveiling our new offering in this space and bring you a refreshed Super Quest Item gameplay experience! We're sorry for this inconvenience, but the wait will be worth it! TamTam’s Gift Region. This much beloved monthly bonus incentive has been changed to reflect the latest evolution in TamTam’s journey – called TamTam’s Odyssey! We are presently halfway through this latest update, with the bonus maps being all set and ready - while champion monsters been removed. These will be replaced at a later date with something entirely new - and we're looking forward to refreshing this monthly update for you to challenge you on an entirely new adventure, with rewards that await you unlike any that you’ve ever seen before! Our BG offering is an intense modification of the existing Battlegrounds experience, and so to ensure proper stability game-wide, we have temporarily disabled the Battlegrounds system as we monitor the stability of these most recent changes. The reason for temporarily disabling this system is to focus on providing a stable gaming experience across all of TalonRO - and due to the intensive nature of the many custom BG changes we made, we will be reintroducing Battlegrounds once we have verified that the systems are stable and ready to accommodate our very custom Battlegrounds offering. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, however, we're positive that it will be better than before! So please hang in a bit longer. Embark on a heroic expedition with Valkyrie: Battle of the Nine. A unique PvM hallmark for TalonRO. Valkyrie: BotN will be part of an expansive adventure filled with brand new content for 2019. Along with fixed instances, Valkyrie will bring a whole new playing field in addition to exclusive rewards, new mobs, MVPs and end-game dungeons. Click here for more info! The Iduna update represents a huge leap forward in our ability to offer both existing changes to your gaming experience, and provide you a platform with which to introduce an entirely new world of future changes never before seen exhalation point the best way to experience all of these changes is to dive right in and learn all about what Iduna has brought - from new changes in interface design, hardware support for graphic drivers and visualizations, a completely redesigned navigation system and in-client features, equipment and replay systems, per-character gender options, and so much more! . We hope that you will enjoy the latest updates and experience just how deep and wide these changes to your gameplay experience go - knowing that it is the TalonRO that you love made completely better!

    Hello, Talonians! First off, a quick reminder about our new Iduna Troubleshooting guide. If you or anyone else is having trouble playing, please check out this topic. Next up, the Reward Guru is back online! At the same time, our Donation page made a return as well. From now on, every 1 USD you donate will give you 100 Talon Cash. This is the equivalent of 1 Talon Coin. The Reward Guru now allows you to purchase the Bonus Bundle straight through Talon Cash, so you are no longer forced to farm for your own coins to get the Bonus Bundle. You can simply buy TCs from someone else or obtain TCs in any other way and you're good to go! As a little extra, we have reduced the cost of the Bonus Bundle from 100 Talon Cash to a mere 25 Talon Cash, which is about 12 of the old Copper Coins. This price reduction will last for one week. Finally, we also have an NPC in the same building as the Reward Guru which can convert any Copper Coins you may have into Talon Cash. The exchange rate is 1 Copper Coin = 2 Talon Cash. The NPC to exchange your remaining Voting Points will be added soon as well. We are checking the existing voting points table for fraud before we enable it. Shouldn't take too long! That's all for now. We're working hard on fixing more bugs and returning more features. Thank you for your patience!
