Server maintenance for 11/06/2020.
Starts at 07:00 AM UTC, expected downtime is up to 2 hours.

Server changes:
  • @buffme buffs won't show in third-person as they usually cause confusion when checking players for macro usage.
  • Added @vac command to temporarily toggle Item Vacuum on or off. Resets to default (enabled) on login.
  • Completely reworked the buff system (internally). Most issues related to the following buff skills should be fixed: Energy Charge, Dash, Battleship (and other mounts), Speed Infusion, Homing Beacon. As well as the Zombify debuff.
  • Fixed 2 massive memory leaks that were haunting us and went unnoticed since the beta.
  • Fixed a bug causing buff stats to shuffle. An example is using Transformation with the "Pink Bean Squad : Victory" buff causing your speed to skyrocket by 250 when it shouldn't.
  • Fixed another edge case where timing out can cause you to get stuck in-game.
  • Fixed Battleship causing the client to unexpectedly crash when receiving party buffs.
  • Fixed client crashes related to being morphed while having certain buff effects applied (e.g. Dark Sight, Combo Attack).
  • Fixed Dash showing in the buff bar.
  • Fixed debuffs displaying incorrectly from third-person.
  • Fixed Energy Charge aura effect (fully charged) being shown only to the Buccaneer rather than everyone in the map.
  • Fixed Energy Charge charge effect being shown only to the Buccaneer rather than everyone in the map.
  • Fixed Energy Charge crashing other players in the map sometimes.
  • Fixed false detection from movement inspection anticheat when warping out of instances (e.g. leaving from Furious Scarlion/Targa to Entrance to Spooky World).
  • Fixed items losing their [protected] status when applying Scissors of Karma manually on them.
  • Fixed mounts sometimes causing players in the map to either crash or disconnect with "error code 38".
  • Fixed Speed Infusion not having the intended effect for every weapon type.
  • Holy Stone (3rd job advancement) won't consume the Dark Crystal when you fail the test.
  • Internal fixes and optimizations.
  • Possibly fixed a bug where players don't see the respawn prompt after dying.

Client changes:
  • Changed system messages and GM notice text color to white.
  • Fixed bug causing several claw skills (including Shade Splitter) to ignore passive critical rates such as Critical Throw and Growing Sylph Ring.
  • Fixed endless crashing when flying/swimming while wearing Mystery Dice with a knuckle.

Skill changes:
  • (Corsair) Battleship Torpedo: Damage: 800% -> 400%. Attack count: 1 -> 3. Monster hit: 8 -> 9.
  • (Corsair) Battleship: Speed: 80% -> 180%. Jump 100% -> 120%.
  • (Corsair) Rapid Fire: Damage: 130% -> 145%.
  • (Night Lord) Avenger: Damage: 300% -> 350%.
  • (Night Lord) Quad Star: Damage: 180% -> 195%.
  • (Night Walker) Shade Splitter: Monsters hit: 7 -> 10. Now properly accounts for passive critical rate.
  • (Night Walker) Penta-star: Damage: 110% -> 120%.
  • (Shadower) Boomerang Step: Damage: 800% -> 1000%. Animation reworked to fit the "Shadower" theme. Second hit delay: 240ms -> 0ms. Horizontal range: 300px -> 450px. Vertical range: 110px -> 140px. Buffer time: 600ms -> 300ms.

Additional notes:
  • Assuming this update goes right, I feel like this might be the end of the trend where our recent maintenances are towards fixing stability problems.
  • Shout-out to the idiot who wasted their time DDoS attacking the server for 3 days non-stop, therefore amplifying the effect of the memory leaks I mentioned and making me aware of them.
  • There's big content updates on the way. I promise you're not being abandoned. I can't tease a lot yet but the stuff in the works include new areas, a new job, events and some skill tuning. The update is massive so I can't give an ETA, but do know it's being worked on.
