  1. With Fall in full swing, we didn't want to leave you all empty-handed until the Christmas festivities! Hereby we'd like to once again introduce the Thanksgiving & Black Friday Event of 2020! See below for more details. Black Friday The Black Friday special event costumes and pets are not short this year, with plenty of surprises to discover on your expedition in finding the Magical Merchant NPC! There will be a a Magical Merchant NPC appearing across certain towns, including Alberta, Ayothaya, Einbroch, Izlude, Malangdo, Malaya, Pyramids, Eclage and Lutie. He will only be in ONE town at a time between hourly intervals. Every hour, he will sell ONE account-bound costume, pet or something else that is no longer available through normal means. The item can be purchased with Zeny ONLY and is available for that hour in a limited amount. So be sure to have your itchy trigger fingers at the ready! When purchasing an account-bound costume or pet, it will be available on your entire forum account, using the Lutie vending machine to acquire them. The Black Friday event will last for 48 hours, that means 48 deals! With old favorites returning as well as some surprises along the way; so keep checking back to make sure you don't miss out on our costume extravaganza! Happy gaming! Deals will start at Friday, midnight server time! Thanksgiving The Jefferys Family has decided to take it upon themselves to host a Thanksgiving Event for all the adventurers who have kept the world safe from harm. Granny Grace can be found in Hugel twice and will warp 5 players into a special event map for a duration of 5 minutes. As said, you will find two Granny Grace's, so two groups of people can join at a time! Movement speed is locked for everyone, so don't even try to use special buffs for extra walking speed! In those 5 minutes, it is your job to hunt various monsters and get their drops. Found some drops? Great! Now what? You will find 3 children and grandchildren of Grace spread out on the map. Each of them can make a special Thanksgiving Dish which has some pretty neat bonuses when you consume it. However, plan ahead on which dish you are going to hunt for. Time is short and you may not always be lucky when it comes to drops. Each mob drops specific ingredients, so find out which you have to hunt! Not to mention, when you start the game, all ingredients from previous rounds will be erased! This event will last until December 3rd, evening server time. There are 3 types of dishes, which are not bound: Thanksgiving Turkey Restores 50% HP&SP, improves HP/SP Recovery by 200% for 15 minutes. Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie DEX + 10 for 20 minutes, HIT + 40 for 30 minutes. Thanksgiving Ale Increases all stats by 2 and increases your walking speed for 20 minutes. From time to time, the monsters will also drop Thanksgiving Crests. While they are no ingredients for the dishes, they can be used for something entirely different! In Hugel, you will find Abigale. She will be able to make a not-bound Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat if you exchange about 50 of these crests and some zeny. The hat itself is quite useful, but there's more! When you made a hat, talk to Abigale again. At a cost of 10 Crests, she will be able to boost your headgear for a duration of 24 hours. When boosted, you will automatically be buffed with a random useful skill every half a minute or so. If you're lucky, even more often! Once the 24 hours are over, just talk to her again to boost your headgear another time. And then there's the best costume of all, our special Turkey Hat Costume! Put this on to really get into the Thanksgiving spirit! The costume is account-bound, but can be obtained from the vending machine in Lutie once you have purchased it on one of your accounts. It also costs 50 Thanksgiving Crests! This year we've added yet another ah-ma-zing costume for Thanksgiving, the Hunters Dinner Costume! Just like the Turkey Hat Costume, this is account-bound but can be claimed at the Lutie vending machine. It can also be purchased for 50 Thanksgiving Crests.
  2. It's mid-November and it's time for the Halloween Event to end! We're happy to announce the winners of all the competitions below. For the time being, you can use our NPC in Prontera to exchange any leftover Halloween Tickets and participate in the Halloween Instance! Other than that, not much happening this maintenance apart from a couple of tweaks and fixes here and there. We are working really hard on finalizing the SQI revamp which is nearly, nearly done now, so definitely look forward to that! Regular updates Added a mapwarp to the Thanatos Boss Floor when a new party is opening the portal, to ensure nobody is left behind. Fixed Song/Dance status icon durations from displaying the wrong time. Halloween It's time for the Halloween Event to end! We hope you all enjoyed this year's event! The competition was fierce as usual, with Emure really dropping the ball this year and Sorin making a recovery near the end. Guile was ahead by a lot during the middle of the event but slowed down significantly after that. In the end, they still pulled through, though! So without further ado, these are our winning houses this year: Guile House wins 1st place with 438,942 points Sorin House wins 2nd place with 437,388 points Please find Monny in Prontera to claim your prize! While they are account-bound and cannot be claimed from the Lutie Vending Machine, you can claim the prize on every account that you played the event with! The following houses did not win any prize this year, but we'd like to commend them for their efforts, nevertheless! Windsor House with 429,610 points Emure House with 346,132 points To illustrate the progression of House Points, we have made a nice graphs for you: Now for the individual competitions!

  3. Question: When I start the game, I get a "Gepard::CD Code: 800::0 Speedhack has been detected" error, but I don't have any speedhacks installed. Quick Answer: Check your system clock. This can be caused by your system/windows clock not being synchronized properly. Make sure it's properly synchronized and running the proper time.
  4. Our Halloween Event, Melodia: Parade of Melody is in full swing! The four Houses are in a fierce battle to find out which House comes out on top this year. Check the event topic for more information! This maintenance does a couple of updates to the Halloween Event and introduces the usual Monthly Maintenance updates such as Monthly Box, TamTam's Odyssey and more! As the event progresses, we are doing some tweaks here and there to improve the events. In the days after the event launch, we already pushed in some fixes here and there, but with this reboot there are a couple of extra updates. Updates with this reboot: As some of you know, we already have House Channels on our Discord server, but with this reboot we now also have House Global Channels in-game! If you are enrolled in a house, the game should automatically put you in your House's global channel. You are not able to join any of the other House channels! The channels are as follows: #windsor #guile #sorin #emure When killing one of the Racas Forest MVPs, the person who got MVP will now get the points. Added reminders every 20 minutes as to what Halloween events are going on at that moment. Increased amount of Doom Points gained over time in Shadow Tag. Started spawning Magic Balls in Shadow Tag more quickly when the round starts. Added a Status Board inside Blackjack/Guess the Number room. Fixed a bug where players could keep playing Blackjack/Guess the Number even after the round ended. Updates from the past days: Added a Kafra to Shadow Tag waiting room. Lowered the HP of Doom Troops in Shadow Tag from 20m to 10m. Fixed being able to get the Magic Ball stuck in a corner in Shadow Tag. Lowered healing of Doom Troops in Shadow Tag. Added ability to leave Shadow Tag room, allowing another character to join. Disabled item consumption in Amazing Ragna Race. After the cliffhanger on the previous chapter of An Unexpected Alliance, we are taking a short break with this event as the Halloween Event takes over for two weeks. Stay tuned for the next episode later this month! As usual, we have our common Monthly Maintenance updates! The November Costume Box is Halloween-themed and contains the following costumes: Whisper Tall Hat Costume [20253] Lolu Ruri Moon Costume [21282] Flying Katashiro Costume [21588] Halloween Cat Long Hair Costume [21280] Halloween Cat Short Hair Costume [21281] Disguise Mantle Costume [21279] Zombie Mask Costume [21327] Gates of Netherworld Costume [21556] Diabolic Lapel Costume [20915] Night Spell Hat Costume [21597] Drooping Cat Crew Costume [21576] Scorpio Diadem Costume [21176] Deviruchi Headphones Costume [20681] Coronet Costume [21584] Our new TamTam's Odyssey region is: Glast Heim.

This is also a Garment Slot costume and can be purchased for 5500 Talon Cash. The sleeping beauty has finally awoken! Layla's Emporium in Valkyrie's Bazaar will be open for business throughout the Halloween period, as well as subsequent holiday themed events thereafter (between very long naps). However, do hurry, as her stocks will only last until the end of November! For more info on how you can gain access to Valkyrie's Bazaar, click here or visit the official Valkyrie: Battle of the Nine website. Along with the monthly and Halloween updates, we have done a couple of small patches this month. The Build Saver NPC zeny cost was reduced from 25,000 zeny to 10,000 zeny. The Bonus Bundle requirement is still there. Fixed a typo in Port Malaya where the text to add a slot to Port Malaya equipment would still mention a +8 requirement rather than +7. Fixed a bug in Ancient Tower where using the Return Room when your team was already finished would put you in a black void. Valkyrie's Bazaar Updates: Bragi Wing Ears now 800 VC (as opposed to 900 VC) Layla's Emporium is now open for a limited time only. The following store items will be purchable until the end of November: Cookie Bag [12130] - 2 VC Dead Branch Box (25) [14234] - 3 VC Black Witch Hat Costume [20163] - 100 VC Dark Randgris Helm Costume [21012] - 100 VC Ear Witch Hat Costume [21120] - 200 VC *account bound* Duneyrr Helm Costume [20863] - 200 VC Hell Poodle Egg [9243] - 250 VC Gothic Skull Ribbon Costume [21256] - 300 VC Black Magenta Ribbon Costume [20843] - 300 VC Lude Egg [9233] - 350 VC Princess Ribbon Crown Costume [21126] - 400 VC *account bound* Celine's Ribbon Costume [20478] - 400 VC Black Cat Hood Costume [20714] - 600 VC Cat Ears Hat Costume [20715] - 600 VC Lovely Fox Ears Costume [20655] - 800 VC Pink Alice Wig Costume [20992] - 1000 VC Ghostring Tall Hat Costume [20697] - 2000 VC *account bound* Loli Ruri Moon Costume [21282] - 2500 VC And that's it for the time being!

  5. 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!
  6. Today we launched a real quick patch while we're working on finishing the Halloween Event as well as more sporadically quirkly interesting updates. The Build Saver has finally made its way into the live server and we can't wait for you to try it out! In the previous chapter of An Unexpected Alliance you helped the group get some missing tools from Hiel's hometown, Eclage. Rin could not find any of them in Hiel's "organized" mess, so you had to get the items yourself. As the completion of the Dimensional Device gets closer and closer, the strange divine energy it's emitting gets stronger. Will the group be able to find out what's causing this energy? Find out in the next episode of An Unexpected Alliance! After a lot of internal testing, we have finally completed the Build Saver NPC! With this NPC you can save complete stat and skill builds for your character. The builds are forum-bound so you can use them on various characters of the same class among your accounts. You can find it inside the stat reset building in Prontera. A few notes: The Build Saver NPC can only be used if you have the Bonus Bundle active. Saving and managing builds is free, however applying a build has a zeny fee of 25,000 zeny. Builds can only be applied to the exact class that saved them. Builds can only be applied if your level is equal to or higher than the one you saved it as. The NPC uses internal skill names, which at the moment are mostly similar to what you see on the client, but a couple of skills might have a different name than you are used to. We are working on this problem. As always, please let us know if there are any problems with the NPC. We hope you enjoy! Fixed a warp coordinates bug in a Port Malaya NPC. Daily Cash Betty now has item links for its daily quest. Numerous Valkyrie's Bazaar price adjustments.

    September QoL Patch

    It's already mid-September and the Summer Event is coming to an end very soon. Rest assured that we have many new events and updates on their way which will keep you occupied for quite a long time! For now we have some smaller updates, mostly fixes and quality of life updates. Enjoy! In the previous chapter of An Unexpected Alliance you continued your journey with Hiel and his Dimensional Device. In this next chapter he finally called for Chief Balrog to assist him in the construction of the device. Chief Balrog has an idea of his own though. As much as Hiel does not want anyone else to help him, the Chief has some interesting contacts that would be willing to help in this endeavor. Find out more by continuing this quest in the city of Morocc! For players who have not yet completed the previous chapter, that quest is still available for you to complete, so hurry up before it's gone! Eden Group missions, such as Gramps, now no longer rotate when a reboot happens but only on their designated time. Fixes to mailbox/RODex: Fixed items weighing less than 1 not contributing towards maximum mail weight. Fixed adding multiple items not all adding towards the maximum mail weight. Note: visually, adding items weighing less than 1 will -not- increase the weight in the UI, but it is counted properly internally. Fixed Poring Catch and Poring Rally sometimes not properly resetting their IP cooldown. Fixed entrance NPC for Poring Catch, Poring Rally and Devil's Claw not properly checking for rental mounts. Added a new shortcut: !tc which is the same as !taloncash. When using Remove Trap or when traps expire in Battlegrounds, it now returns the proper BG Trap rather than a non-BG Trap. Fixed Jewelcrafting sometimes failing even when you have a Jewel Cutter in your inventory. Beer Hat can now also be worn by (Super) Novices. Fixed Lost Child Quest not working in Quest Check Board. Fixed Eden Merit Badge typos in Gramps NPC. Fixed Odin Mask[0] increasing damage to Boss monsters rather than reducing it. Removed the dummy Reward Guru at the Prontera fountain. The Rental Master and TamTam NPCs have moved locations accordingly. While not fully completed yet, we would already like to announce an upcoming new feature: the Build Saver. This has been requested a lot of times throughout the years and we've always put it off due to its complexity and the risk of unexpected bugs. We've finally decided to move forward with this feature and you can expect it to be implemented soon™!
  9. It's hard to believe that it's already September - and as Fall begins to roll through Midgard, we're ready to mark the end of Summer and look forward to upcoming seasonal events including the annual Starlight Soiree scheduled for 5th September, as well as additional new content to keep things as crisp as autumn air! Although our Amazing Summer Race will soon be coming to a close, we're already looking forward to autumn on TalonRO. We are thrilled to announce this month's latest features and changes. Given that the latest maintenance introduced a lot of suggestion implementations and bug fixes, this monthly maintenance will keep things simple for now as we are working on larger matters. An Unexpected Alliance - Continuation During the first episode of An Unexpected Alliance you met Hiel as he worked together with Rin, Chief Balrog and you the player to close the crater in the city of Morocc. As that event came to a close, the Reconstruction of Morocc has been underway and the citizens of Morocc are working hard on restoring the city. While this major effort is still ongoing, our new friend Hiel has been working hard on the Dimensional Device he promised to construct. During the construction he has noticed a strange energy coming from the device and is eager to finish it. Help him out and get a nice reward for your assistance. You can find Hiel at the Morocc city spawn point. What does all of this mean?! Find out more as we continue this dimensional journey! New TamTam's Odyssey region: Aldebaran Clock Tower Note: excludes alde_dun04 (Bathory map) Wave Box Rotation: Feather Fedora Costume [20984] White Bird Rose Costume [20937] GMC Box Rotation: Floating Ball Costume [21040] Siroma Fur Hat Costume [21057] Our latest Monthly Costume Box is available at the Talon Shop right now, with the following costumes: Angel Ribbon Wing Costume [garment] [21541] Fancy Blue Hair Costume [21489] Seraph's Circlet Blue Costume [21542] Jioia Costume [21068] Sinister Horn Costume [21548] Frantic Look Costume [21547] Sun Visor Costume [20717] Wonderful Beast Ear Costume [20812] Aqua Quartz Crown Costume [20508] Virgo Diadem Costume [21109] Wind Milestone Costume [20519] Note Headphones Costume [20662] General The Goblin Leader Card now includes the following Goblin types in its bonus damage: Rotar Zairo Steam Goblin Panzer Goblin Christmas Goblin Updated the Bounty Board Cooldown again: If you fail to defeat the assigned MvP within 23 Hours, you are no longer given a cooldown and you can start another bounty right away. If you drop a bounty mission you will only be given the cooldown if you drop the quest on the same day it was picked up on. Otherwise, you can start a new mission right away after dropping it every day after that. Bug Fixes Fixed some atcommands not properly ending when the Bonus Bundle ends. Fixed the "/lv" emote displaying the wrong emote in-game. Fixed an item weight check in Valkyrie Coin exchanger. Fixed Deporte Doll Hat [1] not mentioning the STR+2 bonus in its item description. Fixed Book of Charms Vol. 1 [1] job requirement. It can now be worn by non-trans classes as well as Soul Linkers.
  10. Greetings Mr. GM;
    I have a terrible situation, I have been a player in Talon for many years for personal reasons I had to leave the game but a few months ago I returned to my old account, the fact is that my account is not registered in the forum and for that reason I cannot donate or get the prizes of tiki tiki, can you help me with that case?
  11. We hope you've all been enjoying this year's Amazing Summer Race! Mid-August brings a wide array of QoL updates to the table, including implemented community suggestions, WoE castle rotations, various bug fixes and more. In the meantime we are diligently working on the major update that everyone is waiting for. For now, we hope you enjoy these updates. For more details, please view the patch notes below. In other news we have noticed a decrease in RMS reviews. We kindly ask that you help us by either renewing your review (if you've already reviewed), or leaving one at your earliest convenience. 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 -- PvE content, WoE, Battlegrounds and more people to socialize and enjoy TRO with. You can leave a review by clicking this link. Thank you in advance! WoE Castle Rotation It had been a few months since the last castle rotation, so it was long overdue. As usual, economies have all been transferred: gefg_cas05 -> gefg_cas04 aldeg_cas01 -> aldeg_cas05 prtg_cas03 -> prtg_cas02 payg_cas05 -> payg_cas04 arug_cas01 -> arug_cas03 schg_cas02 -> schg_cas03 Bugfixes Fixed Filir's Moonlight skill having a 2 second global delay rather than properly having a 2 second after cast delay. A Jewel Cutter is now required to be in the user's inventory in order to use jewel crafting. Fixed Enchant Deadly Poison status icon mentioning that it does not work against Boss monsters. It does work against Boss monsters. Fixed Gopinich Card not giving at least Level 2 Dragon Fire Formation if the player only learned Level 1. Fixed the @return command working in PvP maps. It is now correctly disabled. Fixed Report from the New World status on Quest Check Board NPC sometimes showing a progress value that was too high. Yggdrasil Leaves and Blue Gemstones are no longer consumed if its target is under the Hell's Power debuff. Community Suggestions Implementation You asked, we listened! We have done a massive cleanup of the Suggestions forums and have started implementing a large amount of your suggestions: We have added two new commands: @addfriend which allows you to add a friend more easily, from any map. Note: this command does not work when the target player is in a PvP/WoE/BG map. @petalert which enables a sound to be played when a pet's hunger is hungry or lower. Bonus Bundle command. Note: Remembers its setting on logout. The following commands now remember their setting on logout: @noks @dropannounce @showexp Greatly improved the Quest Check Board. It now has various categories and has many new quests added to it. More updates coming to this in the near future. Improved the Pro Summertime Boxes somewhat by reducing the odds of getting certain older costumes. Giant Shield now gives a refine bonus for every refine +6 and above, rather than a single bonus when it reaches +9. Gold Queen Scaraba Card no longer has the Rod requirement to obtain the Magic Defense bypass. Improved the Ancient Tree Card: Esma damage increased from 5% to 7%. HP/SP recovery increased from 15% to 25%. Lowered Alchemy Glove level requirement from 93 to 80. Increased Zealotus/Zherlthsh spawn from 1 to 5 and decreased its respawn time. The Warp Girl now includes total BG players into the total PvP count as well as the Battlegrounds count, rather than only the BG waiting room. Some Skill Level Scaling cards now scale for every Level Learned rather than only getting it at Skill Level 10: Mutant Dragonoid Card Enchanted Peach Tree Card Anolian Card Wind Ghost Card Geographer Card Clock Card Improved the Seductive Bathory cocktail: Added a note to the description that this item does NOT stack with other Cast Time reductions. Increased Cast Time reduction from 10% to 25%. Drake now drops 1% Reflect Pirate Dagger variant at a 1% chance. All costumes and pets obtained from the Lutie Vending Machine can now be NPCed if you no longer wish to keep them. Added a Bronze Coin Storage at Kafra Agents to store your coins when you don't need them. Note: this does not make them account-bound. They are still bound to your character. A couple Eden Group Cooldown changes: Bounty Board will now reset at Midnight regardless of whether you ditch a current quest or clear it successfully. Reno Crystal Synthesis now resets at Midnight. Dally Quen's Freebie now resets at Midnight. Other Updates When opening your RODex/Mailbox, it now displays a message if the mailbox is full. Assassin Class can now equip arrows as to use Grimtooth in combination with Status Arrows. Eden Group Quests now have unique quest icons to easily tell them apart (returning from old pre-iduna client). Taekwon Mission now mentions in its skill description that mission progress resets after a stat reset (not skill reset). Summer Treasure Map Pieces now no longer drop once that week's treasure has been found already. Valkyrie's Bazaar new costume releases: Geisha Makeup Costume (21143) Odin Mask Costume (21530) Hairband of Reginleif Costume (21531) Saint Frill Ribbon Costume (21532) Radiant Rainbow Wings Costume (21533) Heavenly Order Costume (21534) And that's all for now! Rest assured that we are still working hard on the update you're all waiting for. It's coming along very, very nicely!

    TalonRO Rules Revamp

    Dear Talonians, we hope you've been enjoying the Amazing Summer Race along with all the latest content for the month of August! We'd like to announce a recent overhaul to the rules/guidelines of our server. We felt that a lot of the sections were outdated, or required further context. In addition, we've added a new set of MVP Rules which will hopefully clarify many of the questions players have been asking who compete for MVPs. To view the latest on our server rules, click here and as always, we'll be releasing more updates in the coming weeks. Until then, happy gaming and we hope you enjoy the summer festivities!
  13. With August in full swing, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! This year, the Treasure Hunting part of the event will be making its grand return!

A huge thanks to @GM Spica on the illustration! Fixed Volcano, Deluge, and Violent Gale armor bonuses persisting after not having that armor element anymore. Fixed Sphere Mine not moving when hitting it. Fixed monster skill NPC_RUN not letting monsters randomly run around. Likely fixed monster sprites sometimes lingering after killing them. Updated Thanatos Tower to allow for 3 minutes instead of 2.5 minutes of party exclusivity after inserting the Yellow Charm Stone. Updated Poring Catch and Poring Rally rewarding functions: Both now require at least 2 participants who scored at least something, rather than before where it was stricter. Just like before, the rewards increase the moment more people participate. However, we lowered the amount of players required for each reward tier. The two different Summer Event Suit items are now named Classic Summer Event Suit and New Summer Event Suit. Fixed Ice Pick[0] not having the damage reduction to Players, Emperium and Guardians. Changed Ice Pick[0] and Ice Pick[1] to only have the damage reduction against Players (along with the others), rather than the entire Demi Human race. Fixed default two-handed sword sprite on female Swordman class not working properly. Massive thanks to @GM Haziel for fixing it! Items which grant Double Attack such as Sidewinder Card and Chick Hat now specifically mention that learned levels of Double Attack are used instead of the levels provided by those items. Fame Skills now clearly mention the custom 5% weekly rank decay in their descriptions such as Taekwon Mission, Pharmacy, and Smith Weapon Skills. Added the latest costumes to the Dressing Coach NPC. A variety of cloned items such as bound versions of particular items now have their own client-side entry including their own ID and bound status display. Please let us know if you have any errors regarding items. The return of TalonRO's wildly popular Amazing Summer Race brings the action back to Port Malaya for a season of intense team fun! The Amazing Summer Race this year begins once again in Port Malaya at the World Race Center Headquarters. Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members 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. Visit the official thread for more details on how you can participate in this year's annual summer event extravaganza! Summer is officially well underway on TalonRO - and to celebrate the season, we're pleased to bring back our annual TamTam's Tikibar event! Thanks to our fun loving and beloved mascot, TamTam, we're serving up summery drinks (and prizes!) throughout the whole month of August. If you're unfamiliar with how this special event works, it's easy to participate! Click here to learn more about how you can receive a free prize each day.
  14. With August in full swing, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! And it's bigger than ever before! With more gameplay, more rewards and more of everything, this year will be the greatest one yet! The Treasure Hunting part of the event will be making its grand return this year. This year's event is jam-packed full of new rewards and challenges. See below for more details! The return of TalonRO's wildly popular Amazing Summer Race brings the action back to Port Malaya for a season of intense team fun! The Amazing Summer Race this year begins once again in Port Malaya at the World Race Center Headquarters. Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members 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! 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! For those participating in the Fast 5 NPC finder competition throughout the Amazing Summer Race event, this year's prize is a combination of those we used in previous years as we don't want you all to miss out on these awesome costumes. It's the Water Mastery Costume OR Rune Helm Costume! Both are account-bound and if you make it to the Fast 5, you can choose which of the two you want! 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! For starters, this year you can do up to four missions per character. No longer do you have to switch characters after every mission completed! Remember, you can still do a maximum of four missions per round in total!! 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! 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. This year we'd like to introduce a returning game to the TalonRO summer festivities: Treasure Hunting! 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. This year we've made several improvements to the game and improved the rewards as well, so we hope you will enjoy the return of this game, yarrr! If you're really lucky while treasure hunting, you may even find 1 of 2 never before seen, 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 Just like last time, 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 team) 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! Returning from previous years! 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: And this year for 2020, there is a brand new weapon drop as well! This new drop can be viewed with the below spoiler: Don't forget about this year's wonderful Summer Cocktails, either! 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 (to say nothing of being refreshing on the beach, right?). This year we have a brand new cocktail for you to enjoy, too! 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. Drip of Yggdrasil: 10% EXP Boost for 30 minutes + No EXP loss when dying (30 min.; effect wears off after you die). Venatu's Beep: Increase ATK by 5% for 30 minutes. Myst Case's Surprise: Increase MATK by 5% for 30 minutes. Matyr's Mix: Makes you walk fast for a duration of 45 minutes. Old Dracula's Mix: 15% more Job EXP for 30 minutes. Raydric's Tonic: Receive level 7 Kaahi and level 7 Kaizel upon use. Sour Sidewinder: Receive level 5 Gloria, level 5 Impostio Manus, and level 5 Magnificat upon use. Moscow Headless Mule: For 10 minutes, FLEE + 30 and you regenerate 3% of your Maximum HP every 10 seconds. Can not be used while in Frenzy. Finally, let's not forget about an event that's already been running since the start of the month: 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. For more information on how to join, please check out our dedicated event topic! Finally, summer's sunset eventually falls upon us - and so the Amazing Summer Race will run through September 21st at the end of the summer season. We hope that you enjoy the wonderful features of this year's Amazing Summer Race - and as always, happy gaming!
