  1. Nightmare's Rift: A Jester's Smile

    I share critizism people given here and I can see the GMs' side and people being behind it and all. I mainly post because I find this highly unprofessional. "We made mistakes so just don't join if you're not happy with that" is the best way to discourage people from joining any further events. Or anything really, as this kind of response basically tells us that you don't care for player input. Regarding the actual event: I understand that things sometimes take time. But you're the ones announcing them. If something still takes time and isn't fleshed out yet, don't you think it would be more reasonable to not post it until everything's in place and everyone's in the picture? I do appreciate you guys hosting things like this, but also understand that announcing an event that needs a full and solid party just two days before the actual event puts everyone into stress mode. Suddenly you have to cancel things you've planned already, possibly tell beginners that were going to join your previously planned event that they can't come because it's going to be a tougher thing, find people who haven't made plans for the weekend yet to build a party. All under pressure of signing up before someone takes one of the limited party slots. At the same time, others will come online hours later just to find out that they missed out on signing up and/or getting a spot in their group's party simply because they were at work, sleeping or simply away from their computer for a few hours. Also, other parties will have people dropping out on short notice to instead go to the rift and they're left without some important classes as well. This simply doesn't make for a good player experience so people will start out frustrated. What confused me about last week's event was that we were told there were more parties than expected and I thought man there's gotta be a lot of parties and in the end it was only 6. And then there wasn't even a real prize structure in place. Like the first place got all the rewards and the 2nd and last place got the exact same items. I'm happy everyone got something for participating, but being in the 2nd place party, I didn't feel good when I found out that we got the exact same things. This problem obviously won't be coming up this week since there's only three slots, but I wanted to have brough it up. Because that's part of why it felt like it was rushed and not properly prepared. PS: The way prizes are listed here still is unclear to me: Each member of the winning party gets all the listed items?
  2. Nightmare's Rift: Arena of Champions

    Wow this is short notice. I'd like to go and all but this is at the common guild ET time o_o

    AFK fishing sounds fun!
  4. CNY 2018 Quest Guide ( Complete )

    Can you keep adding roses after you hit the goal? Edit: On second thought, I think I might just be bugged. The dog won't give me the line to enter the monster name either. It did before but we went do other quests before I put anything in there and the NPCs in Magma Dungeon won't talk to me either.
  5. CNY 2018 Quest Guide ( Complete )

    I spent 28m on witherless roses after giving the grave the few hundred I had in storage and it still won't give me a costume. WTF?!
  6. Nokrah's Shadow attack element.

    Normal attack ALWAYS is neutral unless endowed, which generally only happens to characters wearing weapons = players. Juperos monsters indeed spam a lot of elemental skills but I don't know about the quest keystones. Hard to look them up.
  7. tamtam maps or sleepers for farming ?

    Usually, TamTam maps aren't really for farming just for coins, the coins you get on their own are really poor money per hour so if it's just that, better farm raw zeny in a normal farming spot. What TamTam maps are good for is turn bad and mediocre leveling spots into good alternatives to the usual places or when you're looking to farm certain items anyway and want to get a little extra out of it. For example when Mt. Mjolnir is TamTam region, I go farm Stainers for Rainbow Shells for Lightning Elemental Converters and cash in some extra coins. But I wouldn't ever just go there just for the 0.5-1.5 TC per hour.
  8. Yea they won't, unless they do Full Heal when idle. But I find it part of answering that question to mention that not all MVPs, not even all higher tier ones, have Heal in the first place. Note that they won't ever heal to full if allt hey do is regular Heal since they will stop once they are back over their appropriate percentage threshold.
  9. Question about Horn Card

    First of all, game descriptions should always be taken with a grain of salt. RO has proven to oftentimes just have very wrong or misleading descriptions and some things just can't be expressed 100% accurately within a small description box. Regarding the topic, I suggest you don't read it as "long range physical and long range magical attacks", but just as "long range attacks" and "magical attacks". As far as I'm aware, all magic damage is considered ranged. At least I don't know of anything that's close range, even if you're standing on the same cell as the source of the spell. It's just one of those inherent RO mechanical things that everything that reduces ranged damage also reduces spell damage but nothing that increases ranged damage will increase spell damage.
  10. They don't necessarily heal. There's two basic healing methods. Most higher grade MVPs start healing with a version of Heal when they're below a certain percentage of their maximum HP. Some also heal other monsters below a certain percentage (like the Valkyrie monsters, High Priest monsters, Enchanted Peach trees etc). Fallen Bishop Hibram for example is one of the higher range MVPs that don't have the Heal skill at all and neither do his slaves. And then there's the Full Heal skill that some cast under some circumstances. Some will just cast it when left alone for a bit (e.g. Nidhoggur's Shadow), some will cast it randomly even in battle (Hardrock Mammoth does this, for example) some will cast it when rudeattacked (attacked by something when they cannot attack something or reach the aggressor; an example would be Nacht Sieger) and some don't do it at all (quite a few actually. An example would be Ifrit) In the end, it all depends on the specific monster. There's no such thing as a general healing that all MVPs will do just because they're MVP.
  11. TalonRO curve - advice needed

    Playing what you enjoy should be the first priority. You can make money with any character, like others previously said, but the difference whether you enjoy it or not. And I'd rather take a bit longer than spend dozens of hours bored. Also, I don't know why (reasonable) people would turn down someone with a rental Ballista. It's a great weapon! I suggest finding a beginner friendly guild and just playing the game for your enjoyment. And with beginner friendly, I mean a guild that actually has enough beginners itself and parties up randomly and will support each other (be it with parties, advise or something else entirely) rather than a guild of people that will just tell you to go farm popular spot #526 and leave you with that.
  12. Charity | TalonRO Gives Back!

    Of course it will. Any donation made before the end of the year (probably going by server time?) will get the rewards.
  13. The Amazing Summer Race 2016 Summer Event

    The real question to me is... Are those palette packs for your whole forum account or one specific game account? That's the breaking point for me between complete and utter disinterest or highly interested.
  14. Talon wiki wrong

    Oh? That explains it XD When I tried a while ago there was no reset password thing right there and the "forgot your password?" link led to MediaWiki.org. Thanks, Boreas.
  15. Talon wiki wrong

    Yea I'm using a MediaWiki account. Even reset my password several times via MediaWiki's page and logging in at mediawiki.org it works fine. When I'm trying to log in to the server's wiki page it still tells me wrong password, though.
