We are pleased to announce that our transition to rAthena is en-route and we're inviting YOU to help us shape the future of tRO with a beta test in the forthcoming weeks! Rest assured, we will still remain a Pre-renewal Server, but with the new and improved infrastructure rAthena's client brings to immerse players in a more streamlined, user friendly gaming experience. Iduna is all about having more fun, making your in-game expeditions more memorable, and making your time on TalonRO the best that it's ever been. With this explosion of new content, things to do, and achievements to be had, we know that Project Iduna will take your TalonRO escapade to a whole new level! This monumental update is one we hope you will love! If you wish to join the rAthena Beta Test, please sign up using this form. Beta Test slots are limited, so be sure to sign up quickly! First come, first serve. To learn more about what rAthena is, why we haven't done it before and why we're doing it now, be sure to check out our Dev Blog for more information!

    It's already April on TalonRO, and spring is coming right around the corner - and there is much in the great world of Midgard to explore, celebrate, and discover. Our latest events, such as a the PVM event "Elysian Garden" are well underway - and if you haven't had a moment to check them out, you absolutely should! We also have some great updates about Project Iduna, which is coming up soon and moving along so nicely (we can't wait to show you what it's all about!), plus new seasonal events that are on the way soon in April that we hope you'll enjoy. Plus, enjoy the latest TTG region and Monthly Costume Box for April. We hope that you also had a nice time with our recent 12x EXP event to celebrate TalonRO in our twelfth year - it's hard to believe, but thanks to you and the incredible community, we've been going strong for well over a decade of fun and excitement! Read on below for this month's latest - and as always: happy gaming! Our biggest project of the year is continuing onward - and in case you missed it from last month, Project Iduna represents a major leap forward in our pre-Renewal, dynamic environment that you've come to know and love. This latest enhancement will make new additions and innovations possible that weren't able to be done before - but Project Iduna's release will represent a major step forward in TalonRO's legacy which we know that you'll come to enjoy! With this expansion, you'll be able to see, view, and interact with the world of Midgard in a way that will feel robust, new, and in-depth. We'll continue to update you on the progress of Project Iduna, especially over on our Instagram which now has over 1,000 followers! April is in the air, and with it are some seasonal events that we hope that you’re looking forward to. The first during this time of year is our celebration of Easter! This classic springtime event is one of our favorites in April - and this year's event is no exception. We're looking forward to unveiling more about this special new event to celebrate the season when Easter rolls out, so stay tuned as we get closer to Easter for the latest seasonal event to celebrate. As with all seasonal events, be sure to participate when you can - as they are time-limited and are only available for a number of days. Our other events coming around the corner include some great events, such as the upcoming Elysian Gardens PVM event, plus new instance-style events that are sure to test your skills. If you also aren't following our social media channels, be sure to check them out from time to time as well - in addition to some great artwork features, fun posts, and news updates, we also have contests from time to time where you can win something wonderful! April is going to be full of some great fun - be it in-game, on the forums, or over on Instagram! We hope that you'll enjoy these latest events and have a lot of fun participating in them! As with each monthly update, we've made a few necessary changes and general updates to make your experience on TalonRO fun and fresh. We hope that you enjoy the following updates and bug fixes: We have rotated in the following costumes in the Wave and GMC Boxes: GM Challenge Box now contains: Eleanor Yellow Wig Costume Heavenly Dark Flame Costume Wave Challenge Box now contains: Rolled Piamette Hair Costume Royal Mantle Costume  Recently fixed a bug with Glorious Jamadhar not triggering the 100% ASPD bonus. This bug fix ensures that the item is working as intended. Recently repaired an exploit regarding items that provided warp functions (e.g.: Eden Group Mark, etc.) The exploit allowed for players to warp out and back into GM Challenge. This fix prevents this from occurring with these items and their relative warp functions. Tam Tam’s Gift Region this month takes us into the the far reaches of both Brasilis and Louyang! With so many great areas to explore, we hope that you'll enjoy the added challenge and distinct landscapes of these two special areas - especially so with this month’s champion monsters for an opportunity to earn additional great rewards and experience! This month’s TTG region includes: Brasilis and Louyang fields and dungeons This month’s Champion monsters include: Mi Gao Piranha Iara Jaguar Yao Jun Finally, this month's latest Costume Box includes a variety of enjoyable new and rare costumes. The Rainbow Sigrun Costume is back and returns to the top spot after being off of the rotation for a little while! Further great costumes include the Floating Ball Costume, Alchemist Square Bag Costume, Miyabi Long Hair Costume, and the Enchanted Dog Costume - all fashionable choices! Other additions to this month's box make it one worth obtaining - and be sure to do so, as each month a new box with new contents will take its place! April's costume box is currently available in the Reward Guru - and we hope that you get something fun to show off to the world of Midgard.

    With all the work on Project Iduna, we almost forgot that last week was TalonRO's 12th anniversary! Yes, on March 14th, 2007, TalonRO was born. This is over 12 years ago now. It's hard to imagine that our server was alive in a time where even the iPhone was not released yet and look at us now! While during other years we would celebrate with extensive events and giveaways, this year all of our focus is on Project Iduna, which is getting closer to completion by the day! We're excited for the day that we can unveil it all to you. However! We'd hate to not celebrate this major event, so we're glad to announce that for one week the EXP rates will be increased to 12x! On top of that, Eden Board Quests will give 50% more EXP than they usually do! As always, thank you for playing TalonRO. We couldn't have done it without all of you! So grab those level 98 characters and get yourself that last level while you can! The event will conclude on March 27th, 8pm server time.
