    Iduna Release Update

    Greetings, Talonians! With the anticipation now beginning to build around Project Iduna’s release, we wanted to provide an update to the release date, as well as information on our progress - along with a special “pre-release” event for Iduna that we hope will get the TalonRO community in the spirit for our next big leap forward! Project Iduna’s scope and scale are nothing short of unprecedented as we make the switch to rAthena. For those unfamiliar, this switch represents an ability to greatly offer new features and updates that will significantly enhance the TalonRO gameplay experience, while preserving the best of what TalonRO has to offer in our unique ecosystem. Accordingly, it also is critical that we’re able to ensure that all of our features - including gameplay, player control panel elements, account recovery, and others - are completely working and running. This involves additional transitions to new systems and backend processes to completely connect all of the new rAthena-based elements into TalonRO’s unique environment. Our goal is to ensure this transition with Project Iduna is completely seamless for you, our community. Because we are aiming to thoroughly test and develop all whole suite of offerings, we will be taking only a few short weeks to extend development of Project Iduna’s many features, and to ensure they have the highest level of fidelity and effectiveness once implemented to the entire world of TalonRO. Accordingly, our projected launch date for Project Iduna will now be on July 20. We know that the features and additions are well worth the wait, and we can’t wait to unveil them in their full (and fully working) glory! However, this means that we will be celebrating to prepare for Project Iduna’s release! July 6th will still be an important date to mark on your calendars - because we’ll be featuring a full week of 12x rates, beginning on July 6 and ending on July 13. We hope that this upcoming rate boost will get your characters into their best shape to prepare for all of the new features and adventures that Project Iduna will bring with it. We’re looking forward to this incredible and full release of Project Iduna’s many wonderful features - and we’re hoping that you’re looking forward to it as well! Thank you as always for your support and enjoyment of TalonRO - and as always, happy gaming!

    1 Billion Zeny Limit

    New transferrable items won't happen. Increase in the zeny limit maybe one day but cannot promise it's possible at all.
  4. Changed Status to Declined
  5. We already made it account bound instead of char bound. I'd say that's more than enough.

    SQI

    If you have some good sprites for them, we don't mind adding them.
  7. Hey there, welcome to the server! Let me see if I can answer your questions. 1. This is actually coming very soon with a new client. The current one does not support this. You can use /where to get your current coordinates, though. 2. Most official quests up to episode 14.1 have been implemented, so you can use those of course. For EXP and Zeny, it depends on what your goals are really. People like to grind zeny on Sleepers, Moscovia, Geffenia and more, but you can also just look to farm gears for your character on the maps that drop those gears/cards. That way you get both the items you need and get EXP. You can also do the Eden Quests to get yourself some Bronze Coins which can be used to buy Rental Gears. Those are quite powerful

  9. Your master account is required to keep your in-game accounts. So you can't only delete that.
  10. It's like you said, they were not nerfed to begin with. General class usefulness is a whole different discussion really.
  11. We'll be doing our best to get it right this time There will be plenty more to tweak on the new implementation as well as new equipment to add, but we do believe we're on the right track now.
  12. Those people with access to the beta can already try it in fact.
  13. Poem. Of. Bragi. The words "bragi nerf" are almost legendary on TalonRO these days. It's a touchy subject that's not easy to address nowadays, but with the release of Iduna, we figured it was time to revisit this skill. Our initial goal and its failure I think almost everybody can agree that Poem of Bragi in its unaltered state is severely over-powered, especially in the TalonRO environment with all of our customizations. It would lead to Endless Tower parties being finished in thirty minutes and made almost any content we'd release as easy as pie. Especially classes such as Snipers benefited enormously from this skill, even more so with the availability of the Sniping Suit armor. So when we first revamped the skill, our main goal was to lower the overall DPS. Not just for Snipers. Not just for High Wizard. It was done to lower the DPS in general and make high-end PvM content a tad more challenging. And, notoriously, we succeeded in that. Bragi would no longer stack with After Cast Delay (ACD) items and the damage output would lower as ACD reduction went up. The goal was to not let everyone aimlessly stand in Bragi and instead let people focus on letting only certain skills/classes make use of the skill. Classes that would buff other players could benefit without any downside and skills with a high ACD would benefit mostly from the change. Other classes and skills would have to be more careful. And that's what was one of the major issues. We made the skill overly complicated. In our minds, it would even add a nice MVP party play mechanic where one could debuff competing parties and get the upper hand this way. After all, with the damage reduction mechanics of the new Bragi skill, this opened up a lot of possibilities. Unfortunately this backfired. A lot. Quite obviously there are not a whole lot of MVP parties out there that would compete with each other. And in normal gameplay, it made the skill too difficult to handle. Players did not want to have to organize their parties as much as we envisioned. Not only that, this approach proved that you can't force players to use a skill in a completely different way that they have grown accustomed to for nearly 2 decades now. Let's also not forget about the general nerf to the skill. Even though Bragi still increased your DPS output, especially when used correctly, it was often not worth the effort. Parties would rather just bring another Sniper aboard and Bards/Clowns were shunned. It became a meme on its own, which is something we now hope to fix. With this new approach we're confident that we hit the right balance this time, and therefore we want to share all the details with you! The new approach First of all. the most important part for us is removing the damage reduction that came with the Bragi nerf. This was a major part that made the skill such an annoyance when used in parties. We heard you loud and clear, and so we removed it! Secondly, we strongly think that the stacking of Bragi with items that grant ACD reduction is something to avoid. In hindsight, Poem of Bragi was created during a time when delay items were not a regular occurrence. To those who don't already know, this means that using Poem of Bragi with a Sniping Suit will mean that Sniping Suits aftercast reduction doesn't function under Bragi, but you get the full effect of Bragi's buff. So that part we kept in. We hope you don't mind! Third, the Poem of Bragi skill's passive reduction bonus is still as it was before in its nerfed state, in other words, it scales by 3% for every level and no longer suddenly becomes 50% at level 10, instead ending up at 30% like it should. Fourth, we are keeping the revamp out of the PvP environment, just as we did previously. As such, Poem of Bragi behaves as it does officially in PvP/WoE gameplay. Finally, it's time to look at the actual formula itself. Since the damage is no longer reduced during Bragi, you can expect 2 new mechanics when it comes to the formula. But don't worry, it's not too hard to understand! Here are the two main changes you can expect: For starters, skills that have long delays that can't normally achieve our 0.3 second delay cap without Bragi, such as Meteor Storm, can only be reduced up to 0.4 second delay while under Bragi now. On the other hand, skills that are naturally very fast which can already reach 0.3 without Bragi such as Jupitel Thunder and Lightning Spear of Ice for example, will still be able to reach this 0.3 delay while under Bragi. This in turn creates a much better synergy between fast single target skills and powerful AoE skills. The second new mechanic is that there will now be a new item script called bonus bBragiRate. What does it do? Every point in this script will be the same as if you added 5 INT into your character! In other words, saying bonus bBragiRate,2; would be the same as adding 10 INT into your character without actually giving your character INT. This will allow us to create brand new equipment, cards, or even enchantments down the line that are suitable for what the current end game desires. This means the Bragi skill is better designed for future proofing in the PvM meta, which means the design is over all more flexible while keeping the skill useful throughout! It will also promote some new equipment that Bards/Clowns can exclusively take advantage of, giving this class a unique route to take compared to all other classes. Be on the lookout! Anything that utilizes this new effect will be mentioned at a later date~ So stay tuned!
  14. Will probably be a 40~75 MB patch. You can just download a new mini installer as well when the day comes.
