  1. I'm one of those drifters. But let me share a wee bit of my thoughts on why I think newbies don't last in the game. These are thoughts of a busy guy who managed to play tRO during his shift for three (3) years. What you are trying to ask from people is their time. Time that is so precious that once it is spent, can never be earned back. Back in 2013, things were simpler and nobler. People would try something new when they get bored and find fun in it: either exploring new class/job, new farming zones, events, mini games, and what not. Back then you didn't have to stress yourself out with regards to earning zennies. Back then you can feel any town 'liveable' because there are players who autotraded their characters in the town. It was a season of homunculus and guilds. I remember Nazu and his silly social guild. I remember joining his guild and how he made this pixelated world of fun wonderful to me. We were poor but we didn't mind. I remember Colly's sniper and MakeMeSleep's assassin and Art's HP and whoever we had on that day when we raided Orc Lord. We failed miserably but we had fun and laughed out our mistakes powerlessness. I remember breaking his guild and as a way of redemption, I helped him build it up again. I remember how it was easy to look out for newbies and how it was fun to help them all out, accommodate them, and accompany them in their mini adventures. We didn't have Eden Quest back then because the Community was the Eden for all. The community itself was helpful whether you have your own guild or not. But by and by, things got complicated. Nerfs were introduced in hope to 'balance' things out. It discouraged some but the loyals defended the GMs' decision. I was one of them. I remember having the Immortal Hearts taken out of the Alchemist Shop but I respected the admins' prerogative. They told us it would benefit the new players even though it would mean another difficulty for us creators. Time and time, the nerfs got into other farming zones and ideas you can think of to earn zenny. This discouraged a lot of people but the community was there to encourage them and advised them to try something new. And then came some class nerfs. The Bragi nerf is the most painful of them all. The class that would allow me to tag along with my friends on my busiest hours (because I just autofollow and bragi and turn it off then follow again) has become a nuisance to all. The class you can bring on GMCs with minimal gears is now a stigma to all. We tried to understand. We tried to see the benefits. But it still doesn't make any sense. Even if you do the calculations, there is still no benefit with that nerf. It has only become a dead class on the character selection screen. You don't see them much in parties nor in end game parties. And when we bring this up again, the most heart breaking thing they can tell us is to try other class. There are many things I'd still like to bring up but because there's a storm headed our way so I will just conclude things. All of us have our individuality. We all have our precious time. We all want to invest on things that would make us happy. Every one in the game wants to be strong, to have fun, to make and have friends, to chill and relax. But if you make things harder and make us grind our time just to accomplish things in the game, I don't think everyone is up for it. You have students. You have people who work. You have people who are stressed in life. And they come here to unwind and have fun. Just like Raze said, you have an hour or two to convince people to stay. You can't be stout about it and just tell them to go play another server when they complain. There are thousands of pservers out there and games of all sorts. This is why it is not enough to help newbies for them stay. The strongest anchor point to make them stay should be the game itself. Why do you think we had lively communities back then? Is it because of new costumes every month? Is it because of new instances? No. It is because of the game. Talon RO. We had something to show the newbies about the game that excites us individually. We let them ride on our shoulders to see the fun without having them to discourage themselves in farming stuffs. I remember people quitting but they bounce back and return. But now, you rarely see them bounce back and return. When people are stressed out with farming and stuff, they grew weary and don't last. They will go and quit -- some with broken hearts, some with disappointed spirits. And what you will get in return? A very stale and lazy community. And if this goes on, soon, you'll have a dead community. Then later, a dead game/server. Try to go back to the years 2013 and 2014 and remember the glorious days of tRO. A time when things were simpler and nobler. A time when people would try something new and have fun doing so without having to stress themselves out with zennies and such. A time when social guilds were rampant. A time when majority of the newbies would be encouraged to stay. I was one of those newbies.
  2. You're a man with a bushy beard but your display image says otherwise.. XD Anyway, is this from the Mirai Zenai I posted? I haven't played for 10 years so I am not sure if I can help.. *cries and sulks in a corner* .. But there's a way if I recall precisely. Look into the ACTOR_PRESETS (if you're using the Thotai which is the first thing you see when you open the AI folder) .. OR, open USER_AI and look around CONFIG.lua. Don't use the config.exe because it's like the mother of all abominations. Just look around the config.lua and try to set it there (if you're using the mirai side of the AI since the basic AI is set to thotai and the custom is set to Mirai Zenai).

    Necromancer card

    Necromancer Card The card gives INT + 1, Add a 2% Magical Defense bypass IF the type of weapon is a rod. Price of the card in the market is around 1M (3TC in Reward Guru). Suggestion It would be helpful if the weapon requirement be removed so other magic type class can utilize the card (specially beginners). It will increase the demand for the card. Pru HWs (+amplify) geared with Vesper/HW cards and with 3 or 4 of Necromancer Cards can do massive damage. It won't hurt if the said card can be utilized by other magic type class specially those who are beginners as it will surely help with their damage. Anyway, thankies for reading! I hope it can be considered. I have a magic ninja and too poor yet to buy vesper/HW cards and then I saw the Necro card but.. Yeah, can't wield a staff..
  4. Close your tRo game for a while. Assuming you are using the Customized AI (Merai): Open your tRO folder. Go to AI folder. Open the USER_AI folder. Now look for Config.lua (not the one with .exe or the application you opened before). Right click on it; click Open with..; choose Notepad; then click Ok. You should see something like this: : If not, slap yourself and repeat steps 1 to 4. Now from the Config.lua you opened, scroll to the bottom part until you get to the line where it says: Before proceeding, go to https://panel.talonro.com/mobdb/ and search for the monster you want to add and copy its MOB ID#. So let's say you searched for Andre and got its MOB ID# of 1095. Now go back to the Config.lua file and scroll to the bottom part where it says -- End Tact and before that line, add this: Press CTRL (hold it) and then S on your keyboard and start your tRO and see if it worked. If it didn't, you are probably using the Basic AI. Type /hoai to activate Merai and then REST your homun and CALL it again and see if it worked. If it didn't work, slap yourself and check whether you copied/typed the mob ID wrong. It should. If it doesn't, slap yourself and repeat the steps I indicated on the 1st page.
  5. This is both thotai (basic) and merai (customized). And I think the link is okay..
  6. It will and it does. Oh and this is not new; it's old.. Oh no, I only saw this just now.. XD Do you still need help? XD

    Funniest thing you've done in RO?

    I was trying PVP with my Sniper one time.. I remember setting up traps (Ankle Snare) and on my nth trap, some Sinx appeared behind me. I panicked. I was suddenly deprived of INT and ran through my traps and got caught in one.

    Find a good HP partner and you will be all right. Switch BK to gryphon and make sure the HP uses Gloria and you should be okay. As for VR, I actually DS more than SS. I am most humbled by your compliment, true rish zenpai. But I did mention it's for end game. At least you now have a list on what to save for. But if you are truly new, you can probably get a Bow Thimble [0] x2 (should be around 300K each), Ship Captain Hat [Bloody Knight], Pantie set (if you are not a sniper yet), Shoes [GEC], Rental Ballista, Nut Donut in Mouth, Agi Mid [BK]. Then do some saving for kaho and the rest stuff.
