  1. With the break quests, have heard a lot of people still trying to break items from before i left. So i was thinking of either Speak to Heavy Beard and for the price of a brick he will smash the item upon his anvil destroying it and completing that part of the quest. Maybe put a cool down on it before you can do it again (1 month?) too stop people just completing the entire quest with $. This is no different to some other games that let you use $ too complete stages of quests. Pros * People can complete the quest * Another revenue for the store * Remove some of the frustrations people are having. Thus help a little with player retention Cons * easy way too complete a quest The second option i have thought of is a shop item The Item breaker Usewith on a piece of equipment and it breaks it thus completing that item from the current quest list. could sell for say $10. After all if you want to skip that part of the quest it should have a cost. Pro's Same as above + generates more shop revenue. Cons Same as above.
  2. So yeah me again! I have been fooling around with an alt recently and noticed that with haidir quests a/d massively out spans magic level. Trying to think like a newbie (yeah i know not hard for me) It was frustrating back in the day now it is even worse can easily end up 30's a/d and very lo magic level if i did not know the tricks i know i would have probably given up and gone else where. My suggestion come in three forms Daily magic quest: Cast x amount of spells in a magic school and get a bonus amount of magic exp. The daily Haidir/Daritha quests newbies get (and only those) also grant a small amount of bonus magic exp in line with the defence amount. Third suggestion as Haidir/Daritha above but after level 21 magic you no longer gain the bonus magic exp. (my favourite of the options) * I would like to stress this is not from my own perspective. I can and do train magic on alts and know how to do it, can even do it when playing on Thyra but as a newbie that doesn't have access to extra funds or a main to play whilst training it is difficult and very expensive. In the old days you kind of got magic and a/d together hand in hand for those first few important levels.

  4. Make Alchemy Great Again! ;-)

    I think if we increase NPC's prices it is going to increase the price of everything they are used for. Times for the majority of players are already tight and lean. Having to pay more for the things they need will just destabilise an already struggling market. I find part of the issue is the cost in food to mix bones/toads are leaping up higher and higher, with mixers willing to pay inflated prices for them thus the cost of sales is increased. It's all about margins Keep costs down and essence production reaps a higher profit. even .5gc will make a massive saving. Or do like the old days i mix your essences for your ings & food and a small ammount of some other reward...gc? that rare drop you was after etc.
  5. HeavyBeard the item breaker

    Or what if it was only a specific break item... for example only a golden star mace or sunbreaker of destruction that could break it but broke the weapon in the process? Not sure if that is doable tho?
  6. HeavyBeard the item breaker

    I think acid rain or brod would be very much cheating at the quest. And make it far too easy Ever lasting items i wouldn't want to say yay or no on that i don't personally train enough to feel qualified to make a decision on that. The main idea was just to give people a way to get past a stuck point in the quest. at a cost so they can carry on trying to complete it.

  8. The Portals of the dark lord

    The Portals of the Dark Lord. "the Dark lord Abraximus sat on his throne in the his prison plane cursing the fate Mortos sealed for him for his failure to lead the War gods minions in conquest of Draia. Fearfully the imp Ifix approached the brooding dark lords throne excited and eager with his important news and failing to bow as required to his Liege he squealed out "master master the the warlocks have made a discovery and want to you too go see them in the halls of vision right now yes right..." a snap of a mighty gauntlet covered hand and Ifix was held eye too eye with his dark lords burning eyes before even finishing "they DEMAND of ME!" wriggling and stammering Ifix choking for breath not even having time to contemplate his poor life choices "they... mean i... mean " struggling to take a breath "they humbly request sire" with a disgruntled angry word seething with rage the dark lord merged into the shadows the small imps legs still wriggling and squirming. As they both reappeared in the halls of vision the warlocks busily working some ancient divination Darrus the eldest of the three looked up and saw the ire in his Lords face and the struggles of Ifix and just smiled "Sire Good News we have found a weakening in the magical barrier that we believe we can break through with your armies and invade those disgusting warm lands of Draia look see for your self" with a gnarled and withered arm Darrus waved over the seeing pool as the vision grew Abraximus stared with a sly smile smile. Darrus cleared his ancient throat "They will all be over run My lord and you will rule unchallenged even Mortos will have to bow down to you" all three warlocks laughed at the thought of the armies swarming over the pathetic humans and elves even Ifix still struggling to breathe let out a compressed laugh at the thought. Abraximus's arm twitched in anticipation and there was a snap as Ifix's neck snapped the warlocks fell silent fearful of their lords anger but the loud chuckle of the dark one caused all three to laugh evilly. "They will all snap and break as easily as an imps neck" with that the dark lord threw the poor imps body into the seething rippling vision pool and as Ifiz's body sinks beneath the surface the Warlord turned "get the armies ready We march on Monday! Invasion on Monday the 3rd of september. More info too follow
  9. The Portals of the dark lord

    In preparation the arch mages have invited robin tell to come train our archers.
  10. The Portals of the dark lord

    Gathering the troops Invasion. Today the Archmages of Palon Vertas attempted to gather all heroes to practise against the hordes that are sure to come on Monday. We have a few observations. You did a fantastic job and many acts of valour were seen. You were not as organised as you could have been. The mages have stated we will keep trying until we get it perfect However the Mages have learnt a few tricks from observing. They have mastered a mass invisibility spell that will be useful too get every one into place on one of the invasions on monday! Good job guys. However they will probably need some help gathering the ingredients for the spell. Keep tuned for more info.

  14. The Portals of the dark lord

    Our diviners have isolated the times that the barrier to the dark lords prison will be weak enough for him to punch through into our world. 11am GMT WS and WS Castle, Kusamura, Bethel, willowvine, Melinis 3pm GMT (Invisibility Invasion.) 6pm GMT 9pm GMT Midnight GMT 2am GMT Invasions lasted longer than expected so time line was corrupted sorry. Our magicians are still working on a way of stopping him but it is a race against time. The diviners will be trying to determine his most obvious entry points. Be ready and keep you eyes open for any signs. We will keep you informed as soon as we know more. Swords up shields ready and spells prepped.
  15. The Portals of the dark lord

    I have set the Palon Magic guild into researching a way too counter this intrusion or too do anything we can too help. OOC: There will be a whole day of events Invasions Hide and seeks And a trivia contest as we brain storm How to combat this new threat. A new treasure Keep checking as more information will be posted every day.
  16. Newbies & Magic & Haidir

    Problem is the cost of said quest for truly newbie characters is rather extensive and expensive. And if you harvest yourself the components for a new character would take forever. A bridge gap heal spell at say level 10 magic would solve the issue also. maybe one that restores 20 mp's or heals at the same rate poison harms call it regeneration. Id also like to see a transfer mana spell at around that level give players a small amount of mana dependant on magic level not the same amount as a srs tho say restores 15 ep's but costs 25. more options in game is always good.
  17. Newbies & Magic & Haidir

    Yeah or make the lower level healing slightly more effective works for me too 5 mp's is nothing now days and remote heal is just as bad. A few new spells or some adjustments to the ones we already have wouldn't be a bad thing With system as it currently is i am thinking to just get them over the initial hump of magic training. Not suggesting they will leave due to a lack of dailies for every skill just that one skill needs to some what follow the a/d curve till 21.
  18. The Portals of the dark lord

    Thanks too the heroic efforts of a few players the imp Ifix who some how as soon as he sank into the portal appeared on Draia and due to the eternal make of the land was resurrected like we all are! After tasting the evil of his master he has switched allegiances and has warned us that the Dark Lord is planning on invading our fair lands in 5 days time! This gives us very little time to get ready. Be prepared and get your essences made swords sharpened and pots on your belt.
  19. Newbies & Magic & Haidir

    Just to clarify something I said in the first post. My current game aim is to take a step back from all of our preconceptions and think "if i was a newbie coming into game today" would i keep playing, if not why? If so Why? The game has changed, new players have as well. We all need to adapt and change our mind set if we are going to attract a new generation too lets face it a game we all love. The problem as i see it is how too do we distinguish a newbie from an alt. What level do we consider a player not a "newbie" any more? Which i think is a whole new philosophical discussion that we would never get an agreement on. Personally i say after a months a player is no longer a newbie. Personal distinction. I used to say once you got your tutorial completion but with item break addition could take years :p) so lets say a month. What ever we do to help newbies is going to help alts that is a part of the game as it is currently set. According to the rules alts are legal so i think we need to stop the old style thinking of "lets not do things that will make an alts life easier" because that's just going to hurt the newbie's coming in. At the end of the day any player working an alt can just train magic/alch/tailoring far better than a little bonus experience is going to give. As for players already set a few hundred magic xp is not going to mean jack squat too them in the greater scheme. With that in mind that's lets say 30 dailies. so lets say they get each low level daily 3 times that's about 50k a/d experience around about a/d 21 each + all the little bonus's = 24 add daritha for 2 weeks = about 30. this isn't including the fact newbies are already training on things as well beating up rabbits beavers etc. so i personally think we are looking at after a month of play about a/d 40 each. i think my estimates are far too low btw. Daritha is not hard or expensive if i was coming into game id want to know what dailies are out there and try and do them all. So i would be doing Daritha as well. 30 leather helms or 30 leather boots is just a few fire essence. or flowers or the sale of one beaver token gets a lot of helms. 100 daily missions is too slow for a newbie. it needs to be higher than that new players have very short attention spans we need to capture their interest too keep them on board. the market is over whelmed with online games and apps. Look at how they come into game they want to team up they want to do things in groups not individually. so 3 months is going to frustrate and we will lose them. give a higher bonus but cut it off at magic level 21. Or do a daily magic quest, i'll happily write the scripts for it just cant do anything resembling code. I don't want to give them a full meal on a plate, but rather give them enough of a nibble to get them feeding themselves. Sorry that this was a lot longer a post than i anticipated i just think it is an area that needs addressing and is not a complaint at any one as i know we are all passionate about this little world we live in. We need to keep the players coming in to feed the market, the over all health and longevity of the game and the financial rewards for the owner. So that everyone will win long term.

  23. Blood of the Sorcerer

    An old veteran sits in the tavern returning after a long journey telling all who bought him a drink of the tale of Tenemet. that In days of old the sorcerer king rode across the lands bringing with him an army of darkness. One fateful day his army was met upon the fields of Seridia and was repelled by the brave warriors of Draia who defeated Tenemet in a ferocious and bloody battle and he was banished from our fair world along with his commanders. Many a good warrior and wizard fell that brutal day but good prevailed and peace lasted many a year." As he was about to finish his tale for today a few coins in his cap from the captive audience the door blasts open and a old warrior stumbles in "My lord my lord you have returned? the wizards of Tarsengaard were right and in time too or spies report that Orcs with Tenemets infernal symbol have been seen in small groups making ready to gather again." the old man just stands quietly and throws his cloak aside gripping his stave "Gather the warriors new and old this time we shall make sure he can never return!" Invasion will take place on Friday 8th May. 8pm GMT. All will be welcomed new and old. Be prepared for battle and riddles and a contest or two in the middle As we prepare to face an old foe in battle once more. Updates will be posted here every day on the lead up. Spread the word and be prepared. Thyralax
  24. Blood of the Sorcerer

    A silent hush fell upon the halls of the school of magic's depths as the Ancient Sorcerer stepped from the shadows his commander kneeling before him "He has taken the scroll my lord as you predicted" The Echoing laughter that followed even made the commander shiver "of course he did my dear fool, make sure our forces are prepared. those so called warriors will fall into our hands and we shall crush them in a single night! then Draia will be mine" The commander crawled away and began directing his lieutenants watching Orc's and ogres grabbing for spears and clubs, Feroses began ushering the fluffies into the transport pens, Yeti's dragging the bears and trices along the corridors. Craven goblins baiting and sharpening the teeth and claws of wolves and lesser critters. Whilst the dragons over looked with eager anticipation. The Commander smiled and spat upon the floor "Yes my master they will be crushed" INVASION 8th may at 8pm GMT! The hoards will be invading maps on C2 and possibly tarsengaard magic school. Be prepared All of C1 will be safe as will all inside storages on c2, as well as idaloran and port anitora.
  25. Blood of the Sorcerer

    After leaving the tavern the old man travelled on the wings of Unalas to the Magic schools of Draia searching for knowledge of his old foe. Palon Veritas was first :He went in search of ancient tomes and grimoirs for knowledge of the Sorcerer's power. Deep into the hidden places and libraries of that mystical place but Instead of books and knowledge he found traitorous wizards and dark souls hell bent of returning their old master to Draia. He discovered their plan to open portals through out the lands so that their master could send his armies once more into the realms eternal. With no chance to battle so many Warlocks he instead cloaked himself with the magic of illusion and he crept silently into the deeper levels of the once mighty school and stole fragments of Tenemets spell books, ancient crumbling pages that held the secrets to the sorcerers powers. Barely escaping with his life he returned to the Towers of Tarsengaard to seek the wizards and scholars residing there's help to decipher the infernal parchments. Yet he did not act alone, fpor he knew that battles would soon be fought so he sent trusted runners out to scout the lands for evidence of these amassing armies and too spread the word to warn and prepare warriors, wizards, summoners, archers, saints, sinners and mercenaries of all sorts and all proficiency in readiness for the battles that were sure to come. The old mans research indicates portals will be opening upon Irillion (C2) Friday 8th May at around 8pm GMT. Unless you are prepared to risk your lives for the benefit of your fellow eternals We suggest you take cover somewhere safe. (c1 will be safe apart from Tarsengaard magic school) all indoor storages on c2 will remain safe as will Port Anitora and Idaloran) Otherwise we have no idea where the portals will appear. Thyralax
