    Can't Open TalonRO Client

    Try this As you have Windows 10 is a chance you have Windows Defender enabled (aggressively). Go into your TalonRO install folder right mouse click on TalonPatch.exe and choose "Run as administrator". See if that then patches and works. I know a few people impacted by WIndows Defender with TalonRO. There is nothing wrong with the executable code as Boreaus has shown before in his checks. Just Defender in the newest iteration of Win 10 (1809 OS build 17763.253) dislikes it. Best of luck!

    Currently making a SS sniper

    Simple answer is Yes. I did a little over 30k from memory years ago. Max stats and good end game gears (overplussed Artemis). Then DEX food and good old Gospel (+20 to all stats and double ATK). Given that it was in ET is likely that a Pally was there for boofing via Gospel. Very handy skill (sometimes). /spank

    Guide for opening Gift Box, Old Blue Box & Old Purple Box

    RMS definitely doesn't have AOCE as an item in OBB or OPB but no doubt GM's have modified the script list somewhat for tRO. I have to say I have never had the pleasure of logging onto a char and finding some so nice. I am more the opposite, logging in and going "where's my blah blah" and then remembering that in a fit of pique I broke it trying to overplus *fail* Possibly be by a monster you kill there being a looter and it had picked up a dropped AOCE from a dead branch summoned Cecil? The chances of that are somewhat insane though. Enjoy your find though! /spank

  5. I applied the self downloadable patcher from Boreas and that worked great for a few days. However I then started to notice lots of 'apples' (being unknown item) so I knew things weren't being patched. I identified a number of security apps that actually block the new patcher and noted this in another thread of Boreas however my use of the self load patcher seemed to inhibit any action. Simple (but ugly) fix was to redownload client and re-install (meaning you lose a lot of settings which was what really pi**ed me off, so annoying redoing all of these for every sub account). Once I did this my client nicely patched up and continues to do so. I did try things such as run as Admin and put the game path into all ignore tables for all software but still had no luck. Good luck - server is great so I hope you can get this fixed up and continue to play here

    Evolved Pet Equips

    This was my understanding too - should read "one at a time".

    Carding a Sherwood Bow

    (Us) Stalkers don't just donk in Geffenia, that's actually boring as hell. As a general rule we tend to play in maps where high DEF is more common (Boss class, MVP, etc.). From memory the calculation works by Thanatos affecting first and thus means the TG's have greater effect, not exactly sure where the changeover occurs but somewhere around 30 DEF I think. You could probably just go play with the TalonRO Calc to see for yourself actually. @heresnatan With regards to SP hard to beat Grape Juice (even though being Sherwood BB build you will be DEX not STR). Eddga is essentially a must for build (as your flee sucks) but I swap between it and GEC when needed. Fun class/build to play - enjoy and best of luck! /spank

    Game not working after todays patch

    Rechecked everything and still wasn't patching. Quickly re downloaded the newest full installer and now all is good (will be interesting to see next patch I guess). I have a lot of security software enabled and 'special' apps loaded - whilst I hate most of them they are mandatory for me. Thanks again Seiren - take care P.S. On a side note noticed you have now enabled and loaded by default the Free Mouse movement patch for windowed clients - Nice, way cool for UHD.

    Game not working after todays patch

    Boreas - I think this was a short term but now fail resolution. I did as you stated above using your "download" and now it never patches and perm says 1300 players online. Do you have a new or replacement patcher please? Cheers (and Happy New Year)

    Where are all these bows?

    Hi Shendel, Falken Blitz and Giant Crossbow both drop from Cecil Damon (Bio Labs 3 'normal' monster) at 0.03% rate (thus pretty darn rare). The third bow, Dragon Wing drops from the Sniper MVP on same map by the name of Sniper Cecil but at a nice 25%. I assume you use the TalonRO Item Database right? By searching for those items you can see the monsters, map and percentage chance in question - all of which highlight will not be many around. Those who do have these (like Mos above) typically just dump 'em in storage as not really a vendible item (no demand). /spank

    Item Over Price

    Hahaha, blown a lot of peoples secret there 😉 But yes very true /spank

    How did you decide your main?

    I don't have a main per se. I have a number I value all as my 'mains'. Class wise I guess I would say overall my most used class would be Thief class. My main chars though are: Crit VIT Sin Auto-steal (melee) Stalker VIT HW Palladins (Devo, Sacrifice, GC) It really just boils down to what you enjoy playing the most, I have every single class many with 5+ different builds. I can't stand playing Biochem or Champ for instance (but I have them both). Funnily enough I don't mind playing my tiny little baby super novice show is uber kick ass. /spank

    Item Over Price

    As many people have stated above Supply and Demand drive market prices. There think there is a rule somewhere that says you can't over price every day NPC purchasable items, beyond that anyone can sell anything else for whatever price they want. People simply won't buy. I have seen Glove[1] selling for over 9 mil when there are non on the market for a few days, and that wasn't long ago. People will pay more if no supply and they really need/want. As to the Glove[1] being more than Glove[Sting] that is pretty common. A lot of people out there want clean gloves (SQI making or for other cards not Sting - Sting can't be used in Vanilla mode after all). /spank
