You’ll see everyone getting in the festive mood when our holiday decorations go up at noon on December 4. We know there’s more to the season than trees and decorations, though, so stay tuned for more details on the rest of the holiday festivities!

  • New items are available that drop from open-world BAMs in Veritas District, Val Tirkai, Helkan District, and Val Kaeli.
    • Semi-Enigmatic Scroll
      • Used to change an item’s bonus options only.
      • Usable only on unenchantable, equippable items:
        • Rings
        • Earrings
        • Unenchantable Weapons
        • Unenchantable Armor
      • To use, move the item you wish to change into inventory, right-click on the scroll, left-click the item, then click the green arrow next to the bonus option you want to change.
      • This item can be traded or stored in a personal or guild bank. You cannot destroy it or sell it to a merchant.
    • Complete Crystalbind Scroll
      • Protects crystals from breaking on any death for 12 hours. Half a day to die is way better than half a day to live!
      • This effect supersedes both crystalbind and Rookie’s crystalbind.
      • The complete crystalbind effect lasts 12 in-game hours. You can activate a complete crystalbind every 12 real hours. If you activate a new complete crystalbind while an existing complete crystalbind has time left, the duration resets to 12 in-game hours.
      • This item can be traded or stored in a personal or guild bank. You can destroy it but cannot sell it to a merchant. Merchants boycott these things because they’re in the crystal-selling business.
  • Three new dungeon rookie buffs have been added (because 25 percent more loot isn’t reason enough to group with some people):
    • Rookie’s Crystalbind
      • Protects crystals from breaking upon death.
      • One-time use; disappears once activated, so keep your dying to a minimum.
      • Does not stack with crystalbind or complete crystalbind.
      • All party members grouped with a rookie receive the buff.
      • Does not apply to Manaya’s Core in hard mode.
    • Rookie’s Oversight
      • Can resurrect at the location of death once. After that, you’ll have to sweet-talk your healer.
      • One-time use; disappears once activated.
      • Does not stack with the mystic’s Vow of Rebirth buff.
      • Applies to only the rookie (or n00b , if you prefer).
      • Does not apply to Manaya’s Core in hard mode.
    • Rookie’s Fervor
      • Attack power increases by 12 percent.
      • Does not stack with canephora potion.
      • Applies to all party members grouped with a rookie.
      • Does not apply to Manaya’s Core in hard mode or Argon Corpus in hard mode. You’ll have to handle Manaya the hard way.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • The tier 14 items have been removed from challenger’s aide, the losers’ box from the battlegrounds, and have been replaced by greater charms.
  • Semi-enigmatic scrolls and complete crystalbinds have been added to the possible drops from victor’s spoils, the winners’ box from the battlegrounds.

Bugs Squashed

  • Fixed the problem of outlaw-declared characters HP bar being displayed in blue. Blood on their hands, blood red on their HP bar.
  • Account-based mounts can now be discarded.
  • Fixed the problem of Party Disband not functioning while all other party members are offline.

Hello, folks! As we work towards next week’s server merges, we have more details on some of the most asked questions and new information to share. We will continue to update you as more become available. We are excited for the positive changes it will create and our ability to be more interactive with our community.

In addition, the server merge process will free up the dormant names that have not been used since Open Beta Test. We also have a comprehensive FAQ page on server merges for quick and easy answers.

Name Appeal Process & Cosmetic Items

We have created a name appeal process that will help folks who are concerned with the character and guild names. We will publish the criteria after the server merge to prevent potential abusing, but please be assured that there will be an appeal process where this concern will be addressed based on several factors. As for the cosmetic items on extra characters outside of the 8 character slots, we want to do what’s fair and right, and will handle these on case by case basis with our Support team.

Character Slots and 7-day Timer for Level 6+ Characters

If you have more than 8 characters, you will need to choose 8 characters you wish to keep. There is no timer to delete the character that are level 5 or lower, but characters with higher levels will be put under a 7-day timer. If you have items that you want to keep on the extra characters, you can utilize the 7-day timer to organize inventory space and gold. You can put the level 6 and up character you want to keep under the 7-day timer, and log into the character you won’t be using in the future to transfer items/gold. After you’ve sorted them out, you can log out to the character screen, delete the character you won’t be using, then cancel the 7-day timer for the character you actually want to keep. As long as the extra characters are under the 7-day timer or are already deleted, you will be able to log in and play.

Still, we encourage everyone to sort everything out before the merge to avoid unnecessary work and confusion on the day of merge, and since the characters will be gone after the 7-day timer.

Next Political Cycle Will Begin Next Week

We will be disabling the political system at 6PM PDT tomorrow (Thursday, 9/13/12). This is to prevent the new registration period kicking in on Friday as we prepare for the server merges next week. We will be actively refunding the gold and Catharnach awards for the current vanarchs since their term got cut short, and the uncollected taxes will be mailed automatically.

Another point to note is that until new vanarchs are elected, we will manually enable all vanarch vendors in all zones for your convenience.

Celestial Hills is included in these changes so that all servers will have the same political cycles.

Known Issues

On the character select screen, sometimes the nameplate of a character shifts its location or fall off from the designated spot above the character’s head. But it does not have a functional impact such as preventing the character from entering the world, etc.

When replying to an in-game mail, the player cannot write a message back to the sender if the sender has changed his/her name. Parcels will be received correctly and COD’s will work as well.
