  2. The War of Valkyrja aftermath settles, Sigrun & Olrun have sworn their allegience to Midgard thanks to Herja's aid during the trial of distortions. In order to cut the tension, Brynhildr has issued both sides to call a truce. As a result, the twins have warmly invited Normans to participate in their esteemed contest dubbed, 'Blades & Magic'. Given the distaste both Valkyrie have against snipers, the hunter guild were ordered not to participate in the event.

We're looking to expand the GM team to include a variety of positions on the staff, including those who are not only interested in holding events regularly, but also people who have decent RO knowledge or want to help other players. Specialties include the following open staff positions: Event The Event GM role is for those who are interested in regularly holding events in-game and on TalonRO's forums as well as interacting with the community in a social setting. Special attention is paid to hosting regular, consistent events of a high quality for players to enjoy in addition to TalonRO's regular gameplay. Staff in this area are encouraged to work collaboratively with other members of staff to deliver high-quality events which are well-planned, enjoyable, and hosted with broad availability for the community. Developer As a Developer, you will need to have at least entry-level experience in eAthena/rAthena scripting. While we as a team will assist you in getting more experienced in this area, some existing knowledge is expected. Your initial tasks will mostly consist of smaller scale quests, but that may quickly turn into larger scale projects, events and instances. We welcome all players who have played on TalonRO for three months or more to apply - even if you have applied for a position in the past. All applicants are expected to have mastery-level knowledge of Ragnarok Online and to provide a high level of quality support and assistance in a staff position. All potential staff members are also expected to moderate the forum by answering questions or bringing things to the attention of a High GM, with all positions reporting to a High GM. Candidates must also demonstrate solid English language skills regardless of the area in which they are applying. We invite all interested players to submit an application for an open position. All applications must be meet the following criteria to be considered as eligible: All forms and questions must be answered in full. One-liners, copy / pasted passages from Wikipedia, and other incomplete answers will not attract our attention. All fake applications will result in a ban from TalonRO. We kindly ask that you respect everyone's time! Players must have actively been playing on TalonRO for a period of three months or more time. Players who have applied for a GM position in the past are welcome to apply once more, as are players who are considering the GM position for the first time. Following these simple rules will help make your application stand out. Once a complete application has been submitted, a member of the High GM team will contact you if you are selected for an interview. If you've been wanting to be part of the dedicated staff which serve the amazing TalonRO community, now is your time! Click here to fill out an application to become a part of the TalonRO staff! Many thanks for your interest in helping TalonRO - and best of luck to all applicants!
  5. This year will mark the end of 24 hosted party instances. All future BotN content will be assessed and refined to cater for the standard (12) party limit. We will also be introducing more content that'll accommodate for smaller groups moving forward.

    After careful consideration, we felt that team synergy, preparations and organising for larger parties placed a heavy burden/stress on said groups. Our commitment and dedication to bringing fun content is of utmost importance to us.

    Therefore, we will be reevaluating current instances and all future planned content added to Valkyrie's Hall. We hope you bear with us as we improve these events for your better enjoyment. We look forward to hosting these new instances in 2022 and beyond.

    See you in Valhalla!

      @Gom 곰 That's not to say we'll never run a 24 led instance. We'd definitely consider hosting them in future if there's enough interest for it. /ok

      That's sad to hear. Those 24 player parties offered much more freedom of bringing unusual classes or just experimenting with strange one-ofs that 12 player parties simply don't have the room for.

      36 players was a nightmare, 24 players seemed great to me.

      I hope there will be more slots for instances to not leave half the players that would have joined with 24 player setups behind

  6. The bracket is now live! Team leaders, please liaise with one another on a time/date to schedule your place in the first round play-offs. Best of luck to all participants! @kutsuru @yoyoi @snowrinz@[X]in@~KillMAN~@Jordex@TheStranger@pookish

  8. Quick update from our end. If we fail to secure two more teams by Thursday, we'lll be cancelling the event and relaunch with 8 teams instead.
  9. Welcome to 'Warfare'. A new event challenge conceptualised by the community! Two teams will go head-to-head in a full scale battle to claim their rightful mark as MVP kings and queens. Team Aqua of Geffen versus Team Vermilion of Prontera. Party leaders are required to gather a team of 12 and signup via the thread below. Prior to the event, the GMs will draft each team to their respective bracket in a tournament knockout stage format (using a random number generator). Once the teams are drafted, players will have an opportunity to recon the map as well as the MVPs they will be fighting. For further information, please review our rules before opting in. As always we are open to feedback and suggestions -- so don't hesitate to reach out! Party leaders must include their team name as well as a total of 8-12 players to be eligible for entry Once all teams have been drafted into the tournament, party leaders of each bracket will need to liaise a suitable date with one another before confirming their times on this thread. Please note that the event must conclude before the end of September During the event, both teams will fight their own MVPs (highlighted by a letter corresponding to your bracket allocation). The team who successfully defeats the most MVPs will be victorious and move onto the next round Each team will be facing off against the same 10 MVPs (a list of what you'll be fighting is highlighted below) We will use a random number generator to distribute teams fairly for the tournament bracket. As this event is still in its infancy stages, we strive to improve the mechanics based on numerous testing and player feedback Dual clienting is not permitted, and you must remain in one team throughout the tournament. Anyone caught breaking these rules will have their team forfeited immediately Please notify us at least 3 days before the event in case of any cancellations / drop-outs.
