    @Takhui Not really a helpful suggestion. You say it's bad but you don't say what you want to change and why.

    Please read Boreas' reply.
  5. I am sorry, but this is not viable for us. We do not have the resources to translate every NPC.
  6. Not a whole lot we can do about that. Odds are the client just handles it weirdly.

    Summer Race and More!

    While we are approaching the end of August, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! Due to how busy we've been with the Project Iduna launch, we haven't had as much time to spend on the event development as we usually have. For that reason, the Treasure Hunting part of the event will not be making its return this year. That being said, the event is once again full of new rewards and challenges. Please check it out in our dedicated Summer Race Event Topic! Furthermore, we have made a bunch of other changes and bugfixes: Added new atcommand @taloncash. This displays your current Talon Cash amount. Removed some difficult items from Daily Cash Betty and added some easier ones. Fixed incorrect Joint Beat damage scaling, which should also fix Lord Knight Card's auto-cast from missing every single time. Fixed Ganbantein not consuming gemstones with Mistress Effect, since it should never do this officially. Removed Impossible/Inaccessible/Unreasonable missions from Taekwon Mission. Changed the location of some Eden Group Officers so that they don't block other NPCs. Guild Castle treasures now spawn at 1am server time instead of midnight. This is done to ensure they don't despawn when we reboot around our usual midnight schedule. We hope you enjoy the updates. As always, there's more to come!
  8. While we are approaching the end of August, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! Due to how busy we've been with the Project Iduna launch, we haven't had as much time to spend on the event development as we usually have. For that reason, the Treasure Hunting part of the event will not be making its return this year. That being said, the event is once again full of new rewards and challenges. Please check it out~ 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! Fast Five For those participating in the Fast 5 NPC finder competition throughout the Amazing Summer Race event, this year's prize is the same as last year as we don't want you all to miss out on this awesome costume. It's the Water Mastery Costume (Bound)! Rules for the Amazing Summer Race 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! Missions and Regions 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! 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. The Octopus Instance is making a return! First debuting in Summer 2018, it is a unique high-end instance! 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 4~12 players, who is stopping TamTam from leaving the Malaya Docks. Akkorokamui is a new type of MvP that uses mechanics never before seen! 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! If you participated in this instance back in 2018 however, don't expect it to be exactly the same as before. Minor tweaks aside, watch out for his new mechanics such as the devastating Tidal Wave attack during the defensive formation! 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 the evil octopus! Finding the keys will not be easy. You can obtain them by participating in the Amazing Summer Race! 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 brand new, never before seen gears on TalonRO, exclusive to this content! He will drop the following exclusive armors to form a gear set, and while not part of the gear set, a unique pair of sandals, all of which dropped in 2018: However, there is also a brand new weapon drop for the 2019 year! If you're lucky when defeating the MvP, you may even get Undine Spear: 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!
  9. Hey there, welcome~ To answer your questions: 1. It usually floats between 800 and 1200 nowadays. 2. I would try to hit up on #main chat and also maybe try and look for a guild, in-game or on Discord.

    Daily Cash Betty

    Changed Status to Implemented
  11. GM Seiren

    Daily Cash Betty

    Agreed on most of them except for Peco Peco Feather, Sprout, Thin Trunk and Tough Scalelike Stem. These monsters should be killable by fairly low-level classes and the items drop at a high rate. The others have been removed. As for the items to add. I added all except for Animal Skin (NPC item), Bill of Birds (NPC item) and Tree Root (NPC item). Done for next maintenance.
  12. You can also just disable them with /monsterhp

    Eden npc

    Changed Status to Implemented

    Eden npc

    Done for next maintenance. Niflheim looks fine the way it is though.
  15. It's a tiny amount of 10-20 items tops, from the weakest mobs in the game. And that gives you cash worth over 400k zeny every single day. I don't see what's so bad about that? If you think a certain item still takes a long time to farm, kindly let us know and we can look into it. But your statements from your previous post are absolutely rubbish of course. Let's get real here.
  16. August 13 update. Few more bugfixes done: Fixed not being able to change guild member position. Fixed boss monsters (not MVPs) dropping equipment items at a 1x rate instead of 3x. Fixed monsters in Wave Challenge sometimes spawning in walls. Fixed Nidhoggur's Nest instance not warping players properly during certain parts of the instance. This also fixes several other instances like Octopus Cave. Original topic: Now that most bugs (but not all of them yet!) have been solved, we are able to dedicate some time to actually returning some beloved features to our server. It has taken a little longer than we had initially hoped, but we're on the right track now. Thank you once again for your patience during this transitional phase! So, without further ado~ GM Challenge and Wave Challenge As the instancing system on rAthena has changed quite a bit, these scripts required a significant amount of recoding. Our initial idea of implementation unfortunately did not work out, so we had to go back to the drawing board. That being said, both are now fully implemented and should have full functionality as you are used to. The process of signing up for the instances has slightly changed. After the party leader generates the instance, each member has to separately enter the room. You will end up in a second (instanced) lobby where the party leader will be able to warp everybody in and start the instance. We have also slightly altered the way Return Lobbies work. In both GM Challenge and Wave Challenge, players can no longer disconnect for more than 15 minutes and then return to the game. If this happens, they will simply be warped back to Prontera. Another change was done to GM Challenge alone. We no longer use the Return Ticket system. Players can now return to the GM Challenge as often as they want, however you can now only warp back inside if at least one of your party members is still alive. If your entire party is dead, you can no longer use the Return Lobby. Voting system replacement First off, we have now enabled the Voting Points Converter NPC in the Reward Guru building. You will be able to claim your voting points as Talon Cash there right away. Now, you are likely aware of the Voting System no longer being utilized by TalonRO. Most of the topsites are full of Ads and many times even serve malware. Topsites in general are a thing from the past and based on our statistics, they don't actually result in many new players at all. For that reason, we decided to get rid of them and replace them with something new. The idea behind implementing the new system is that it should take a very small amount of time to get a reward. After all, voting didn't take more than a minute and you could get 40 Talon Cash every day if you kept track of the timings. After some digging, we found that people's Kafra Storages are absolutely full of Misc items that serve almost no purpose. So with the new system, we will be making use of that. You will now find an NPC called Daily Cash Betty in the same room as the Reward Guru. Every day, you can talk to that NPC (once per person) and get a very quick Item Collection quest. The amounts will range from 10 to 20 items. Complete the quest and you will be given 40 Talon Cash. This is the same amount you would get if you would vote on all voting sites twice per day. The items required for this quest are extremely easy and can be farmed on low-end monsters. We hope this new idea is a fair compromise after losing the Vote for Points system. Please let us know what you think~ New Donation System Another major change we've done this reboot is the Donation System. One complaint we've heard a lot in the past is the inability to donate with methods other than Credit Cards. With the method we used in the past, adding other options unfortunately was not viable. This has now changed. We are now utilizing the Commerce plugin on our forum software. As a result, the Donation page now links to our Store here on the forums, where the donation process will take place. This brings forth a few changes: Instead of being able to donate any custom amount, we now offer fixed packages. The great advantage of this new system is that we can now offer Bonus Talon Cash for people who make a larger donation. This was something that players have suggested for years now and we are finally able to offer this. The packages are as follow: $5.00 -> 500 Talon Cash (no bonus) $10.00 -> 1080 Talon Cash (8% bonus) $25.00 -> 2750 Talon Cash (10% bonus) $50.00 -> 5625 Talon Cash (12.5% bonus) $75.00 -> 8625 Talon Cash (15% bonus) $100.00 -> 11750 Talon Cash (17.5% bonus) $200.00 -> 24000 Talon Cash (20% bonus) $500.00 -> 62500 Talon Cash (25% bonus) Next to the usual payment through Cards, we now offer Google Pay as well. Google Pay is a new payment method that allows you to easily pay through either your browser or (preferably) through your mobile phone. A big advantage of this is that Google Pay offers support for PayPal. This should open up the donation system to people who were not able to do so before due to the lack of a Credit Card. While Google Pay is not available yet for all countries, it's quite wide-spread now and continues to become available to more countries. Donations are now directly tied to the new Support system. If you have any questions about a donation you made, you can directly send a support ticket through the payment. Bugfixes and improvements And lastly, we have of course fixed various bugs and made several improvements again: Lif's Mental Change skill now has a shorter cooldown to accommodate not being able to reset the cooldown by recalling the Homunculus: Level 1: 10 minutes to 2 minutes Level 2: 15 minutes to 4 minutes Level 3: 20 minutes to 6 minutes Fixed Rainbowrings never opening the portal to the Ginnunggap. Bragi Cast Reduction portion no longer adds together with items/cards and now multiplies like it used to. Cart Termination now properly goes through Cicada Skin Shedding and Auto Guard as officially intended and how it worked before. Fixed an exploit where you could change the Guild Leader by right clicking in the Guild Window and thus bypassing the Reward Guru. Thank you to the people who have reported this and shame on those who have been exploiting this the past days. In order to make it harder for scammers to trick players into believing they are talking to a GM, you can no longer join a player chatroom if your job level is lower than 50. This system was already in place for creating a chatroom, but not yet for joining. While we understand that it's a mild annoyance to the legit players, it's done in an effort to keep everyone safe. Like before, transcendent classes do not have this level requirement.
  17. Just tested it in-game. It works just fine. Just doesn't display in your status window.
  18. Have you tried to actually attack some mobs and see the difference?
  19. We originally planned this reboot a few days later and it would include a few more features, but due to the server crash earlier, we decided to make it happen earlier. So without further ado, here are the changes of this reboot: @whosell and @whobuy work again, after they were temporarily removed earlier today due to a server crash. GEC and other timer based scripts should now function properly like before. This means using skills like Blessing no longer reset the timer. Monsters should now only aggro targets within 3 cells between the target and monster like before. Frenzy should now calculate HP correctly. Lovers Card via Tarot Card can no longer teleport boss monsters. Item Heal Scripts should now function properly like before. Includes mechanics such as Hell Poodle Card and Ranked Potion Bonus. Skid Traps no longer immobilize targets that are caught inside it. Traps and Ice Walls can now be damaged by monsters again. Unit skills will no longer immediately expire on death. Includes skills such as Ice Wall, Storm Gust, and Magnus Exorcismus. This prevents a skill like Ice Wall from disappearing when you die. Unit damaging skills will no longer deal damage when the user is dead. Includes skills such as such as Storm Gust and Magnus Exorcismus. This is opposed to how we previously fixed it, where the skill would just disappear when you die. Naturally spawned MvPs will now start dropping tickets again: Drop has been updated to Talon Cash Tickets (4 points each). Asura Cooldown has been altered: PvP/BG/WoE: Now 8 seconds (down from 15). @charinfo should now properly display EXP progression for Jewelcrafting and Cooking. Removed Glittering Jacket from arrow crafting table. Endless Tower re-entry from Alberta now costs the right amount of zeny instead of 50,000 at all times. Changed TamTam's Odyssey drops to pre-Iduna values: Pre-Iduna you got 1 Copper Coin (2 Talon Cash) at a certain rate. Post-Iduna you got 1 Talon Cash (0.5 Copper Coin) at a double rate. Now, you get 2 Talon Cash at the same rate as before Iduna. A majority of the major bugs have been fixed now. There's still a few more to go, but we will start diverting some resources to content creation. So be sure to look forward to that!
  20. We have done that in the past, but it barely had any effect really.

Refining will now display the +refine amount when successful like it used to. Fixed Mining Rock interactions ending abruptly. Removed Return to Sender part of RODex as it was causing trouble of mails not being visible. Eddga Card should now function properly. Fixed nif_fild02 spawn of Loli Ruri being much too low. Storm Gust should now double damage properly on every 3 hits against bosses. Shadow Slash has been fixed according to Aegis behavior and now does melee damage regardless of distance used.

For some older players, you'll see some rewards you've seen before due to the work we've been spending on Iduna. We do hope you'll still enjoy it! Visit Tam Tam's Tiki Bar Here! We're thanking our entire community with special small items that can be obtained each day. Here's how Tam Tam's Tiki Bar works: Visit Tam Tam's Tiki Bar today at the link above 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 NPC in Comodo: SeiSei the cat. Once there, enter in your unique code in-game exactly as you received it from Tam Tam'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!
