    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™!
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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!
  6. 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! This year's event is jam-packed full of new rewards and challenges. In addition, TamTam's Odyssey region invites players to venture into the beach town of Comodo and Byalan Dungeon. GMC and Wave Challenge have also received updates with a refreshing box rotation!

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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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! TamTam's Tiki Bar is a special calendar with a unique prize for each day throughout August. It could be a useful consumable but even something as amazing as a unique costume! Read more below on how to participate and receive your free prize each day throughout August! We hope you'll enjoy it! We're thanking our entire community with special small items that can be obtained each day. Here's how TamTam's Tiki Bar works: Visit TamTam's Tiki Bar today to be taken to the calendar page! You'll only be able to claim a prize once per day, on that specific day - so if you miss a day, you'll miss a prize. All days for calendar purposes start and end according to Midgard (server) time. Find the right Tiki Bar drink on the calendar by searching around on the one that you can click! Once you find the right drink, you'll be given a unique code that is special to just your Master Account. Copy this code down and log into TalonRO! Visit the city of Comodo in-game and find our special Tiki Assistant NPC in Comodo: SeiSei the cat. Once there, enter in your unique code in-game exactly as you received it from TamTam's Tiki Bar calendar page. Claim your special prize, and repeat this process each day during the month of August to collect all of the prizes! Lastly, keep in mind a couple of special details as you play in this month's Tam Tam's Tiki Bar: All Tiki Bar calendar gifts are account-bound and will only be available on the day they are offered - meaning that you can't log-in and collect prizes from later dates. To receive all daily gifts, you'll need to visit the Tiki Bar Calendar and the Tiki Assistant NPC (a wonderful cat named SeiSei) in Comodo each day from now throughout the days in August. While the prizes are account-bound, this does mean you can claim your rewards on all of your game accounts! So hop on those alts and get to Comodo! We hope that you'll enjoy our special summer calendar throughout the month of August - it's all part of our saying thanks for being a part of the TalonRO community, and we hope that you have a fantastic summer! Cheers and, as always, happy gaming!
  9. As the Summer Event (and SQI revamp, Soon™) draws closer, we are doing some minor updates to the server to fix a bunch of bugs and improve your general quality of life. We hope you all enjoy. As always, more to come! A new temporary Special Effect costume has been added to the Talon Shop for a duration of one week.

Elysian Garden is a post-game dungeon with a variety of new mobs across multiple fields. Featuring Rift and Valhallan MVPs that drop special loot and boxes that can be exchanged for numerous rewards. In order to gain access, players must clear the Mystic Tower instance to obtain an Elysian Key (keys are character bound and have a 14 day expiry period). Please note that Elysian Garden Shard rewards are subject to change, if deemed necessary. For more information on Elysian Garden, visit the BotN website by clicking here.
  10. Summer is here and TalonRO has a lot in stock for it! To start off, we have our usual monthly updates as well as an updated client that will improve your gameplay performance. On top of that, the city of Morocc has progressed into the next stage of reconstruction with a brand new event! Expect more updates in the coming weeks and months. From events such as the Amazing Summer Race to forum and social media events. We are still working hard on the SQI revamp as well, which is progressing nicely. We hope to be able to show you something of that soon! In addition, BotN: Elysian Garden will be officially launching mid-July. In the meantime, you can look for the entrance in preparation for its release. Please note that Elysian Garden can only be accessed when clearing the Mystic Tower instance. Visit this thread for more info on how you can obtain an Elysian Key. Lastly, our annual Summer forum event is now live! Participate in this year's fashion extravangza for your chance to win a variety of rewards, including Talon Coins and GM boxes. The new TamTam's Odyssey region is Morocc Pyramids. This includes the Nightmare maps! Font Items can now be purchased from the Talon Shop. Upon using these items, the font of your chats will change as you type and will be visible to other players as well. They sell for 100 Talon Cash and have a duration of one week. Note: the font only appears on chat that appears over your head and is visible to everyone. It does not appear in the chatlog. GMC Giftboxes have new temporary costumes added to their rotation: Walking Desert Wolf Baby Costume [21216] Greater Dracul Horn Costume [20933] Wave Challenge Giftbox has new temporary costumes added to its rotation: Large Sorcerer Crown Costume [21144] Twin Cannon Costume [21226] A new temporary Special Effect costume has been added to the Talon Shop for a duration of one week. This [Visual] Soul of Meow Costume goes to the Garment Slot and can be purchased for 6500 Talon Cash. The July Monthly Box has been released with a variety of brand new and some classic costumes and contains something for everyone! We hope you all enjoy! Black School Bag Costume [21491] Red School Bag Costume [21492] Straight Long Black Costume [20998] Cat On Head Costume [21497] Cyber Ear Costume [21121] Pink Headphones Costume [21487] Lady's Feather Hat Costume [20268] Gryphon Hairband Costume [20266] Rose Gothic Bonnet Costume [21498] Carmen Miranda's Hat Costume [21429] Cancer Diadem Costume [21019] Bride Mask Costume [20674] Nekoring Hat Costume [20660] We have implemented a new version of our client that improves general performance as well as loading times. As it is the same client we have used for the past month, no new features are added. This is purely an update that improves gameplay performance: This should severely improve performance during WoE and other crowded maps/events where players would otherwise experience serious FPS drops. A major improvement has been made to the game when /effect is disabled. Part of this change means that various skill sound effects will now also be disabled when /effect is off. While it's an unfortunate side-effect, this change is very important for the overall performance improvements. This update also includes several security fixes. This maintenance we have also done several QoL updates as well as bug and exploit fixes: Merged a variety of rAthena updates. As this overhauls various internal files, please let us know if anything is off! Overall you should not notice any changes here though. Improved the is-party-alive check in Ancient Tower to reduce the chance of being forcibly warped back to Prontera in the Return Room. In general, a good thing to do is for the party members not to warp into the next stage of said instance when someone wants to warp back inside. You can no longer use @commands while trading another player. The Mora Tool Dealer now has more items added to it. Fixed an exploit where Spell Breaker could cancel a monster's Metamorphosis skill. Fixed a bug where a monster could Metamorph into a random monster. Fixed White School Hat description incorrectly mentioning Level 1 Weapon Perfection. It now properly displays it as Level 3. Added three new Angel Scarf Costumes (white, blue, pink) to Valkyrie's Bazaar. After the unexpected alliance between Hiel, Rin and Chief Balrog, the Dark Energy emitting from the crater in Morocc has been sealed off! Workers have returned to the city of Morocc to rebuild their once wonderful city and they have made impressive progress! Houses have been restored and the ground has neutralized. This means that the event to help Hiel close the crater in Morocc has now ended. However, the work does not stop here! While a great deal of the city has been restored, there is an ongoing effort to restore the Morocc Castle to its former glory. The Desert City Restoration Committee is recruiting adventurers to help out with the work in the city and they reward everyone helping out with Morocc Merit Certificates to buy wonderful items. So be sure to check out the city of Morocc to see if there's something you can help out with. There is a daily limit of 5 missions you can take per person, so choose wisely as some missions reward you with more certificates than others! In the meantime, Hiel will continue his work on the Dimensional Device now that the dark energy has been sealed off. What could this bring for the future of Midgard..?
  11. This maintenance takes care of some small bugs and potential exploits. We also squeezed in a couple of other useful updates while we were at it. More stuff on the way! In anticipation of the SQI revamp, the Valhalla Warper now always offers you both options to warp to either the Creation map or the Bonuses map. Synced up the Port Malaya quest level requirements with their instance level requirements: Bakonawa Lake instance now has a level 85 requirement instead of level 90. Buwaya instance now has a level 80 requirement instead of level 90. The portal to the Thanatos Tower boss floor is now exclusive to the party that opened it for only 5 minutes instead of the previous 30. An announcement about when it opens up for everyone is now also added. Torch Cap can now be traded as intended. Fixed Zeny Gain bonuses, such as from Zeny Knife, working on MVP slave monsters, which allowed AFK farming. The following maps now restrict Dead/Bloody Branches: ve_fild06 yuno_fild06 yuno_fild03 gefenia02 moc_ruins Thanks everyone!
  12. Happy June everybody! We hope you are all ready for a great summer here on TalonRO! Our Monthly Maintenance includes a new TamTam's Odyssey region, a new Monthly Box and various bugfixes! We've also decided to impose a vending limit to see if this will free up the vending spots you're all craving for. On top of that, the Valkyrie Bazaar has been updated with a couple of unique new costumes which we're sure you'll enjoy! Lots of great things are on the way the coming months (only the most anticipated update in a long time, anyone? Starts with an S) which we hope you're looking forward to. We know we are, that's for sure! The new TamTam's Odyssey region is Einbroch, including Einbech and Einbroch Dungeon. GMC Box rotation: Nidhogg Wig Costume [20730] Lolita Two Side Up Costume [20971] Wave Challenge Box rotation: Clock Casket Costume [20709] Kamima Baphomet_Horn Costume [20652] There is now a forum-bound vending limit: Players can now open a maximum of 3 vending stores. Players can now open a maximum of 2 buying stores. As always, using multiple forum accounts to circumvent this limit will lead to a permanent ban. Added the latest Kahos and PCBs as customization options to the Reward Guru as well as the Talon Shop. Fixed an exploit where BG stat foods would not dispel when logging out. Fixed an exploit related to the Weapon Refine skill and pet eggs. Fixed a potential bug in Ancient Tower where Valkyrie Herja would not transform into her second form. Please let us know whether this still happens. Limited Time Costume For a duration of one week, you can now purchase this [Visual] Fluttering Butterfly Costume at the Talon Shop! With spring coming to an end and summer starting soon, this will surely make you stand out! This month's Costume Box contains a variety of new and classic costumes! Wind Shard Costume [21448] A gust of wind flying around you. Note: while it may look like a Garment costume, this is in fact a Lower Headgear costume. Check out the Dressing Coach to see what it looks like! Long Fairy Hair Blonde Costume [21153] Clock Casket Costume [20709] Open Air Headset Costume [20809] Zombie Mask Costume [21327] Suit Collar Costume [21423] Khalitzburg Helm Black Costume [20890] Taboo Curse Scroll Costume[20259] Red Glasses Costume [21427] Gemini Diadem Costume [21018] Imp Hat Costume [21430] Maiden Hat Costume [21424] Various updates have been added to the Battle of the Nine Instances and their related content: The Knight of Lux NPC has been removed to make way for the revamped Elysian Garden. New GM Box (Haru's) implemented in Valkyrie's Bazaar. Nightmare Insignias have been removed. New Elysian Shard item, which grants players an Elysian Key. Note: the key is a rental item which expires after 14 days. Do not open the Shard until the new Elysian Garden has been opened! Added Tier IV TamTam's Crate. Added new Bazaar costumes: Angel Scarf Costume (Orange, Red, Black) [21447, 21455, 21456] Sword Relic Costume [21444] Seraph Pinion Costume [21446] Greater Dracul Horn Costume [20933] Chung E Shinyon Cap Costume [20887] Majestic Helmet Costume [20260] Kamima Baphomet Horn Costume [20652] Aria Headdress Costume [20656] As always, we have lots of amazing content on the way! Thank you all Stay safe, stay healthy!
  13. As we continue working on the brand new Super Quest Items storyline, some server maintenance is still necessary! During this maintenance we mostly updated some of our back-end systems, but we managed to squeeze in a few small updates while we were at it. We hope you enjoy! Bugfixes !dropannounce, !noloot, and !partybuff should now all be cancelled immediately when the Bonus Bundle expires. Fixed a bug in Nidhoggur's Nest instance where the timer would keep running and the party could get teleported even after the MVP was defeated. You can no longer open a shop on a cell that another player is vending on already. Added some additional party checks in the Ancient Tower return room which should hopefully reduce the odds of it warping you back to Prontera instead of inside the instance. Fixed weight of Heartring and 99 Love Balloons incorrectly being 75. They now weigh 0. Fixed Glorious Guitar and Lariat giving the wrong ASPD bonus. Fixed Merchant Card Set not properly disabling Hylozoist Card's monster transforming effect. Eclage Field monsters should now teleport on idle every now and then, which prevents them from getting stuck on top of the Bifrost Tower. General Updates Synchronized the client item display name with the internal server item names. This way there should never be any item name mismatches anymore. Battlegrounds updates: Items are now automatically replenished when respawning. Monk class no longer gets extra Blue Potions. They now get the same as everyone else. Alchemist class now gets 15 extra Bottle Grenades. Fixed getting dispelled in CTF and Rush when warped back into the Return Room after, for instance, a flag was captured. That's all for now. Thank you all for your patience regarding the SQI revamp. We are diligently working on it and are hoping to show something in the near future!
  14. May has arrrived on TalonRO - and we hope that you are enjoying a lovely spring in Midgard! As always, we’re delighted to add in a few new great features this month as we endeavor to keep your experience fresh and fun. We’re looking forward to continuing our great stream of events, updates, PvP innovations, and much more - but for now, we hope that you’ll enjoy this month's updates! We've decided to run another EXP event as a gesture of goodwill in these challenging times. Please note that the event does not apply to Eden Group. For a duration of two weeks, the Base and Job EXP rates will be 10x instead of the regular 8x! The May Monthly Costume Box is filled with a variety of brand new as well as older costumes. Please check the image above to get an impression and the list below for the ItemIDs to be used on the Dressing Coach (we know you all want to try them on beforehand!): Brown Giant Cat Bag Costume [Garment] [21420] Blue Wavy Long Hair Costume [21375] Mic Stand Costume [21422] Witch Manteau Costume [21326] DJ Kitty Costume [21249] Royal Guard Necklace Costume [21073] Sigrun's Wings Costume [21426] Blue Tinted Blinking Eyes Costume [21367] Taurus Diadem Costume [21017] Bell Ribbon Costume [21425] Pirate's Pride Costume [21431] Blue Mage Hat Costume [21428] Monthly Updates The new TamTam's Odyssey region is Brasilis and Louyang, both fields and dungeon maps.

It's available for a week and in limited amounts for 6000 Talon Cash! This Upper Headgear Costume comes with an adorable hearts effect! General Updates Battlegrounds Updates: Battlegrounds rounds now have a 15 second starting delay after reaching the minimum amount of players. This is done so that the game does not start immediately when the minimum amount of players have joined. More players are able to join in that 15 second delay, which will result in teams being more balanced than before. Assassins now get a Poison Bottle guaranteed when restocking. Added a way to check whether Happy Hour is enabled or disabled within the Battle Recruiter NPC. Fixed not being able to use skills in Team Deathmatch restocking room. Yggdrasil Berries and Yggdrasil Seeds now share a cooldown group, meaning that when either of them is on cooldown, you cannot use the other one either during that cooldown time. Expanded vending spots in Lighthalzen by 50. Comodo Carnival no longer shows up in the Last Warp menu. Reverted Kaahi to pre-Iduna behavior: Kaahi heals after being hit as opposed to before. Kaahi has a 0.5 second timer after healing before it can heal again instead of every single hit. WoE Castle Rotation We have rotated the WoE castles to new interesting ones. As usual, economies have been transferred accordingly. Additionally, for the first time in years, the Schwarzwald and Arunafeltz castles have swapped. The Schwarzwald castle is now the Vanilla map while Arunafeltz is Unrestricted.

Fixed Bug Report where only Whirlwind Kick was procing with multiple Taekwon Kicks enabled. Fixed a bug where copying levels of Water Ball above 5 would not have correct casting range. Fixed Geiravor Partisan pet casting Dark Soul Strike on its owner instead of the enemy. Fixed Enforcer Shoes adding SP cost instead of reducing it. Fixed Enforcer Set adding Aftercast Delay instead of reducing it. Fixed Novice False Eggshell not adding MaxSP + 80 like it's supposed to. Eden Group Hat II now correctly displays that it has 0 weight in-game. Pitch Dark Evil Druid Hat now properly displays that it has a slot in-game. Fixed a variety of smaller issues behind the scenes.
