Yesterday's restart brought the npc that allows you to spend your super valuable hard-earned energy that has been stored in those High Density Energy Stones. It also has made obtaining these charges a bit easier.

New Npc
His name is Nidrah and he is located near the large tree in Silveria (the illusionist homeworld). Currently you can get elixir tokens and Charged Destiny from him. Both require your HDES to be on the 3rd stage and take charges(levels) from this stone. Elixir tokens cost 300 charges and the Charged Destiny costs 3000 charges. While the cost of these seem steep, keep in mind there will be other ways to obtain energy in the future. Though to do the quests now, you will certainly have the advantages of being able to be one of the firsts to get T5.

Charged Destiny?
This is the final item required to become T5. It will be used in a quest that will be finishable within a reasonable amount of time(less than one day), when the T5 option is finally ready for release. By obtaining this item, you are showing me that the server is ready for this option to be finished. My goal is to finish out the quest and initial stages of being T5 before summer. This is the key item for it. Once obtained, you are "ready" for T5. It will not be a chanced based thing where this item has a chance to fail.

Changes to the Underworld
All normal spawns in the underworld have had their health reduced to 1/3rd the value that they had before. This should make the underworld a much friendlier place to hunt for T3+, as well as making the rewards a bit more worth it. Quest mobs for the underworld have their health reduced even further some of them being as low as 1/5th the hp they had, further encouraging players to kill all of the mobs so that the timer goes much faster.

Other Changes
The Additional Item icon located in your inventory window next to the trash bin now is a shortcut button to your Pouch storage as long as you have a pouch equipped. This will allow you to quickly open your pouch rather than having to search your inventory for it or take up one of your valuable hotkey slots.

Bug Fixes
The X claws had their AOE damage fixed

Pot of Gold chests no longer get additional items added to them when the Instance Chests spawn.

I've gone through and watched/read all of the guides and picked the winners. It wasn't an easy decision, as a lot of work was put into these guides, but none the less winners had to be chosen! Also because these guides were all so well done, I decided to give a consolation prize to everyone who submitted a guide for the contest as well!

First Place (4500GC): Frosty with the following guides;

Second Place (3600GC): ThePapi with several video guides in the topic below;

Third Place (2700GC): UMF with the following guides;

Special Thanks also to the following for their contest submissions: (and a 750GC consolation prize)

Event Details
To celebrate Saint Patrick's Day this year we have released a new event instance! The instance is called "Leprechaun Hunt" and takes you to the Leprechaun's village where you can hunt them down for their keys! With their keys you can open the chests that spawn throughout the instance. If you travel a bit further into the instance you'll find some giant jello shots that are partying.

How to play the instance
You can obtain a lucky clover from the vitality merchant or from the Event Master Ives in -shop, these clovers when double clicked take you into the instance, however it requires you to have at least one other person in your party. You are able to play it once each day with the daily refresh at 1AM EST reseting it for you.

How to play the instance more than once a day
If you have a codex of time you can simply click "Use Pass" next to the event group to use a Event Instance Pass or give Gift Coins to reset it without one. If you do not have a Codex of Time you can simply obtain an Event Instance Pass from the Instance Manager Yates in -shop and double click it in your inventory. This will also reset the instance for the previous event instances that no longer refresh daily.

New Items
Green Beer - This is like normal beer, except its green! Play Responsibly!

Lucky Clover - This item is used to enter the new instance without a codex.

Leprechaun's Key - This allows you to open the chests in the new instance that are spawned throughout.

Magic Doll: Green Fire Egg - This item allows you to summon a Doll that gives you an incredible boost to luck!

New Npcs
Leprechaun - These little guys shoot acid spit from across the screen when you try to raid them in their village.

Jello Shot - These little guys shoot acid spit from across the screen when you try to raid them in their village. They have chances to drop the boss bloods from Imperial Tombs 4F

Pot of Gold - This chest has a range of items in it that have been stashed away by those greedy Leprechauns. Try your luck if you can manage to pry a key from one of them!

Green Fire Egg Doll - This doll when summoned adds a large amount of luck!

Other Changes
The Hidden bar now sells multiple forms of beer and liquor

The strippers in the hidden bar now show their true form

The Naked Enchanter is now able to be clicked to craft stuff

Wastelands zombies are no longer have the insane damage they normally have.

Changes to Magic Dolls
Many fixes to all known bugs with magic dolls have been addressed and fixed. Here are some of the changes for them:

  • Dolls will now teleport nearby if they are out of range or stuck on something
  • Dolls will now no longer be counted as pets, thus being blocked by maps that disallow pets/summons, fixing the issues where they disappear while teleporting.
  • Dolls will now be hit with a extremely long super brave when summoned causing them to have increased speed in hopes they can keep up with you.
  • Move speed of the dolls has been set to the appropriate sprite refresh speed, causing them to be less likely to have their location bugged on screen.

Instance Changes
The rewards for completing instances has been changed so that you no longer are garunteed the following rewards: Clan Skill Energy, Clan Experience Energy, Dimensional Treasure Chest;

However 4 chests now spawn around your character when you complete an instance and a 20 second timer starts to allow you to open one. To prevent you from opening more than one, you are given a key to open one of the chests, once you open one chest, the key is consumed. When you exit the instance, the key is deleted as well. Inside these boxes contains a number of items, which will be changed from time to time, including new items to be added to it.

The current possible rewards from the new instance chests are as follows:

  • Clan Skill Energy
  • Clan Experience Energy
  • Instance Reward Key (1 - 2 This is allows you to quickly open another chest or 2 if you don't run out of time first.)
  • Mysterious Key (see the chests section of this post)
  • Dimensional Treasure Chest
  • Magic Doll: Dimensional Chest

Event Changes
The Wedding daily instance will no longer refresh each day, meaning since the event is over, there are no free plays of this instance until the event period starts again. You can still however use any instance passes you have and you can continue to purchase new instance passes for this daily for an increased non event price.

The Dimensional Treasure Chests are no longer given for completing each instance. They can still be obtained randomly from the new instance chests that you can open when you do a daily instance. You can also still buy them for an increased non event price from the Event Items npc in -shop.

Treasure Chests
As mentioned above, Instance chests spawn at the end of each instance, this is possible because I have now figured out a way to code a completely new kind of object in the game. Treasure Chests! Of course this means with due time, you'll start seeing them pop up in places unexpectedly, so you can excitingly kick one open and see what goodies you can find! But thats not all! There is also a new Mysterious Chest located in -shop! It can be opened with Mysterious Keys that are rare to find, but can be found in the instance chests. This chest also closes and restocks itself every 30 seconds, so if you see it open, just wait and it will close again.

Gift Master Changes
With the Gift Master's retirement finished, you can no longer use the -giftmaster command, however, to fill this gap, a new item was created that allows you to pull up a list of the new shop keepers and click a link to browse their items. This lets you circumvent going to -shop and finding the npc. You can get this new item the Gift Master's Link from the Vanity Mistress, Callidora located at the lower end of Valhalla(-shop).

The Gift Master has finally decided to retire with his old age. He has left you guys in capable hands however! A new shop town called Vahalla has been opened up, when you use -shop you will be taken here. If you must goto the old shop area, you can use -oshop to go there, however this new shop zone also supports /shop commands.

To take over the Gift Master's job 7 new NPC's have been given different sets of items to trade for your precious gift coins. From left to right (in the above image) they are as follows:

Callidora the Vanity Mistress
This lovely lady trades items of vanity, appearance or convenience.

Dasha, Supplies & Stuff
This lady trades supply and buff related items.

Damita the Doll Collector
This lady took over the doll merchant's job of trading gift coins for dolls

Nozomi, Chance & Skill
This lady in red trades for items dealing in chance or boxes with random contents, including the skill book containers.

Zenos, Personal Events & Cubics
This mysterious figure trades for event tokens and the cubics that are gift coin related.

Yates the Instance Manager
This former guard has taken it upon himself to go into the field of magic! He deals in instance related items including the codex of time and instance refreshing passes.

Ives, Event Items
This young lad has all temporary event related items for trades of gift coin. Be sure to check his list often.

There are several other features with this new shop town, including a hidden bar to take a load off and enjoy the sights.

Other Changes
New Instance added, details on this instance will be posted tomorrow

Sudarshana Chakras, the Claws of Fate, now has a short 2 cell range aoe similar in nature to the pole arms, but with a much less damage rate.

Bug Fixes
Pandora pass icon missing should be fixed with a client update

When you start an instance with a codex, it will check to see if you are able to escape from that map before it teleports you into the instance. You can still use the codex to check your dailies as well as reset them.

When you use a codex of time to enter an instance, you and your party members will be ported back to where you were when you entered the instance.

The SXP gained from killing monsters in the Thebes instance has been increased to be more than the Orim's Lab Instance.

Pole Arm style aoe's will no longer steal health/mana from each mob hit by the aoe, only the primary target.

Pole Arm style aoe's will no longer poison each mob hit by the aoe, only the primary target.

You've been invited to a wedding! However enemies of cupid have sent Wedding Crashers to interrupt the destination wedding! Make sure you help clear them out! Also you've been given a +1 on your invitation, as we know no one wants to goto a wedding alone!

Event Details
New Daily Event Instance "Destination Wedding" added to the game. This is a special instance that requires 2 people to enter. To enter this event, form a party with one other person who has been level 65 at some point, then use a wedding invitation item or use your Codex of Time to enter the new instance.

The monsters in this instance can drop weak elixirs, shirt enchants, soul enchants, wedding event items and many other items. Find them in the database to see the exact drops.

Event Items
Wedding Invitation - This item allows you to enter the event instance if you have not done the instance today or the instance has been cleared with a pass. It automatically selects the normal difficulty and teleports you and your party member inside. You can buy one for 10 Vit Coins at the vit master or 3 for 1 GC at the gift master. This item is not needed if you or the person you are grouping with has a Codex of Time.

Event Instance Pass - This item clears your daily instance run for the Destination Wedding instance to allow you to run the instance again. It is in the gift master for 5GC.

Instance Changes
Thebes' Alter of Osiris Instance will now allow 1-2 people to do the quest, allowing a party of 2 to do the instance together.

Each daily instance will now allow up to 6 active players/groups doing them. Meaning 6 people can be doing hardin, 6 doing orim, 6-12 people doing thebes. Which means this should effectively end the full instance messages!

Boss Changes
Normal Osiris and Anubis have been updated.

Damage from their spells reduced
Attack and cast speeds reduced
Drop rates on boss item drops Increased
Regen of health greatly decreased
Max HP greatly increased
Magic Resistance increased

Bug Fixes
Birthdays are now updated to be the first log entry that character has ever had. For really old characters this means that the birthday will not be the day it was created but the first day that it created a log entry after the logging system was added to the game.

Fixed a bug with Dolls who lose their master for one reason or another to further break when they should acquire exp.

Fixed a bug that occasionally causes errors when skills are used.

Two new groundbreaking items were released today! One to make doing daily instances easier and the other is a reward for doing dailies!

Codex of Time
Through researching the crack of time and the rift of space, we were able to find a way to quickly enter the instances that are done daily. You can also tell if you have done them today or not through this method as well. There are some other helpful shortcuts with this item. It is self updating and will add instances to the list usually a week or two after a new instance is released.

The biggest connivence of this item is the fact that you don't have to find the npcs or even look around for the door, you can simply just click the link for the instance you want to do and you are instantly teleported into the instance if you have not completed it. If you have completed the instance, you can click "Use Pass" next to the area name to use the associated pass if you have one in your inventory, this saves you the hassle of opening your inventory to refresh your dailies. If you do not have any passes, it will ask you if you want to refresh the instances for 10 GC instead. This will allow you to refresh the Thebes daily, as there are not any passes available yet for this one.

This is also a permanent item, you only need to buy it once per character. It is non tradable. As new instances become available the old codex will update with time. Also the price of the codex may go up as new instances make it more valuable, so be sure to buy it before then.

Dimensional Treasure Chests
If that wasn't exciting enough, there is a new event item that will be made available from time to time. This event allows you to obtain Dimensional Treasure Chests from time to time. These chests take you to a special room where the demon Verdof likes to play a game of chance. When you appear in this room there are flying chests and walking mimic chests wandering the room. Each one has items that drop from a random custom monster in the game. You can't tell which one will drop what until you kill one. Once you kill it, they all blow up and tell you who's drops they had. White chat messages show which monster the drops were from. Shout chat shows you which monster's drops you could have gotten. You can even get drops from old events that will never see the light of day again!

While this may sound very complex, its quite simple. You are teleported inside, you kill one mimic, it gives you drops (or nothing) and all the other mimics die. You are then free to leave the room by talking to Verdof or teleporting out. You can even use another box to instantly hop to the next spawn! If you do not leave the room within 3 minutes Verdof will automatically teleport you out.

So how do you get one of these awesome chests? This is something that will change depending on the event. This first event for them you will gain one for finishing a daily instance, so this means you currently can get 3 free a day. You can also refresh your dailies and get even more of them!

Another way to get them during an event is by buying them with gift coins from the gift master. This isn't always the best option, however if you want to skip doing dailies to get them because you want to do more chests than you have time for dailies, you can pick this option.

Other Bug Fixes/Changes
Restarting in any of the thebes maps will place you at the oasis instead of aden

Fishing Pond will put you in gludio if you restart

Cost of Advanced Jewelry Solvent reduced to 800k + taxes

Alter of Osiris instance has boss moved to the back of the room for hard/extreme difficulties.

Heart Trail should no longer prevent you from walking through it.

New Daily Instance
The mirage in the thebes desert is remembering her past and needs your help investigating it. Can you find the hidden alter of Osiris where she believes she came from?

Instance Details
This instance quest requires you to find the steps to the alter of Osiris and use the key. Upon successfully using the key in the right location, you'll enter The Alter of Osiris and be required to kill the monsters located there. You will have 10 minutes to kill all of the monsters, if you run out of time, or die, you'll be ported out. So choose which difficulty with care as you only have on try at this quest each day.

There are 4 difficulties for this instance that match up with the other daily instances currently released in Ivory Tower.

Event Item
Love Chat Pass
This item allows you to chat via Love chat which is a global chat that is a pink color and has hearts next to your name. The rules for love chat are as follows:

  1. All Love Chat Messages must be positive and non sarcastic
  2. No selling/buying/trading in love chat

Other Changes
Entry into instance "hidden doors" has been expanded from 1 specific tile to within 3 tiles of the entrance.

Yesterday I spent a good amount of time investigating the difficulty of the dungeons designed for the low tier mid-high level zones, the places where a lot of people are struggling recently. Often when newer players are struggling in these areas many including myself just tell them that this game is hard, its how it is, however, after a lot of time looking into why a lot of these players are having a hard time, I have found the underlying problem they are having. Its not the drop rates as some players suggested, nor is it the fault of the players or even their gear!!!

The true problem with these zones lies in the evolution of the server and how advice is passed on from player to player. When these zones were designed the "norm" was that you leveled up and put stats into CON and WIS until they were both 25, then you de-leveled. When you re-leveled you had a lot more hp and mp allowing you to survive the challenges that places like Ivory Tower and Imperial Tombs offer.

This no longer is the "norm" as most players recommend pushing to reaper (or some even level 115) instead of de-leveling, as this saves you the time of having to re-level an extra time. The problem with this is, a lot of the players receiving this advice goto these dungeons that they think they should be able to handle, as they are for their level/gear range, then struggle way more than expected. This leads to them feeling there is no place for them to hunt and makes them feel like they have to donate or "pay2win" to progress further into the game.

To make matters worse, many players discourage these players further by either insulting them or telling them to "just go donate". This is not how I want players to donate... I do not want to make people feel they must donate to make a normal progression like going reaper. While I welcome the donations for players who would rather spend the money to speed up the process, I do not like for players to discourage players who are struggling, by telling them they must spend cash to hunt in places they should be able to hunt in.

Because of these evolutionary changes to the way people progress and level up I'll be making some changes to the hunting zones for this range of maps. The first of these maps that will be hit with changes is the Ivory Tower Basement.

Changes to the Basement
The spawns have been greatly decreased
Map changed to No AOE
Rift Guardian moved to B2
Monsters on this floor are tier W3 -T 1 (W = weak or negative tier higher numbers means weaker)
New item Refined Ore Dropped by souls
Monsters return to their spawn spot if player runs too far
Monsters spawn off screen of player
Demon no longer summons monsters (due to aoe change)

New Ivory Tower B2 Floor
This map was copied from the basement before these changes.
Map allows AOE
Rift Guardian Located here
New item Refined Ore Dropped by souls
Monsters return to their spawn spot if player runs too far
Monsters can spawn ON screen of player
Spawns are high like they were before this release

These changes to the basement make the first floor a lot more hunt-able for players who skipped de-leveling, as they should be able to handle the monsters at the rate they spawn without being over whelmed. It also prevents a high tier mage from coming through and interrupting their spawns or killing all of their mobs. As these higher tier players would prefer the 2nd basement floor which allows aoe and has the spawn rates to support it.

So.. What is this Refined Soul Ore stuff?
To fill in a gap of equipment between the S grade gear and the X grade gear, most people rely on event related items. This works for the most part because of the abundance of events we have and that most people are willing to chip in a few dollars here and there to support the server. I skipped s80 armors a long time ago due to the fact that this class of armor was not something many people seemed interested in. They were mostly levels 100+ and many had these event gears, which by design are better than normal gears, so for me to create armors that nearly everyone would consider junk seemed to be a waste of my time. But now with multiple tiers and reapering and all of this other stuff, players spend a lot more time in this gear gap, using cobbled together event items or even A grade gears, as often S grade is too hard to hunt for those who skip de-leveling. So this means its time to add in S80 armor sets.
The refined soul ore will be used as a primary mat for crafting most of the s80 craft-able sets. These sets will be added when I am able, but I wanted to put in at least one of the main drops for it so players can start preparing for it. This will also be one of the materials used to craft the s80 pole arm trishula.

There will be some changes in place soon for other zones for this level/tier range, so stay hopeful for those who are struggling, I'm working hard to bring the difficulty to where it should be (not TOO hard, but not easy either).

Good Luck,
Have Fun!

Reason for changes
Many people have had a problem with hunting inside of Thebes temple due to pvp and the fact that the spot has been way too easy to xp and/or sxp for quite some time. This is due to the zone being designed to be hard several years ago, but as people got stronger it became easier to the point where it could be cleared with no risk of damage or death with hundreds of monsters being pulled on you. This became unfair to those who couldn't fight for the spot and allowed the higher level/geared players to quickly get stronger while other players were forced to hunt in other spots. The changes with the system are not made to completely prevent this, however, they do allow the lower tier/level players a better chance to hunt this great zone. While balancing the rate that the higher tiers are able to gain at with that of the lower tiers to some degrees. It also should make the grind in this zone a lot less dull or boring as you'll have to pay attention to your health and how many monsters you are puling.

What is changed
For players that are Tier1 or Tier2 you will be able to go inside the temple with slightly less spawns and non buggy monsters (meaning no more having to do -self often, making the xp safer). Essentially its slightly easier than before and no more T3/T4 players coming and ganking you. At least not on their main characters.

For Tier3 or Tier4 characters, the monsters have a random tier between T1 and T5. This makes them hit for higher damages with reduction to the effectiveness of DR allowing them to actually hit players with even the highest DR. They also have the chance to drop XP shards and some new items used to craft and buy x grade gear. Also the bosses at the end of the map for the higher tier players are Epic Anubis and Epic Osiris, which both have high hp and low regen. They have several new drops as well.

Mirage of the Past
A new npc randomly appears in different places within the Thebes Desert. She trades bones dropped from Inside Hard Thebes for X grade mats. She also manages trades for Pharaoh's Gold.

New Items
Bones from another world
This item drops from tier mobs and is used to buy x grade mats from Mirage from the past.

Fragment of Anubis
This item drops from Epic Anubis and is one half of the whole that represents the box from another world.

Fragment of Osiris
This item drops from Epic Osiris and is one half of the whole that represents the box from another world.

Box from another world
Mirage from the past creates this item when merging the boss fragments. When merging there is a small change the box is glowing instead.

Glowing Box from another world
Mirage from the past creates this item at a small chance when merging the boss fragments.

Blades of Time [X]
These edos/dual swords are rarely dropped from Epic Anubis or can be crafted by Mirage of the Past. The stats on them currently are temporary and the procs for it will come at a later date.

Staff of Ra [X]
This staff is rarely dropped by Osiris or can be crafted by Mirage of the Past. The stats on it are currently temporary and the procs for it will come at a later date.

As many know, yesterday's restart brought some changes to the Inside of Thebes Temple. There were a few issues with the difficulty due to the insanely high spawn count and the bugginess of the mobs. Previously Thebes this wasn't too much a problem as the monsters were not Tiered allowing them to do damage. Well today's restart will bring fixes to the way the monsters bug themselves up and the density of them. It will fix it for both Lower and Upper Thebes.

Bidding Rules
The current bid will be announced in Teamspeak in the auction channel. To hear the current bid amount you will need to be in this channel.

To make a bid you will send a pm in game to Zajako of your bid amount or you may use teamspeak's private chat to send a message to zajako that way.

Offline Bids
If you would like to make a bid on one of the top 10 items on http://vote.l15server.com/top/ even though you are not gonna be able to be online for the auctions. Send a private message of the amount you would like to bid, as well as the name of the item via private message on these boards to zajako (or email zajako@gmail.com) today before the auctions begin. Offline bids will be considered in the bidding at the discretion of zajako and if won will be liable to pay via gift coins according to the rules on collecting the winning bids.

Rules for collecting winning bids
If you are found as a winning bid for an item in the auction, you will be required to give the amount of the winning bid to zajako within 7 days of the auction ending.
To give the gift coins simply place them on your character (not warehouse or pouch) and send a pm or email to zajako letting him know you are ready for them to be collected. You will then have the amount taken and your winning item delivered to your character.

Event Details
An event stack of 5000 gift coins has been added to pandora! This is also a special stack that can give you between 5GC and 30GC each time you land on it! When they are gone they are gone! So the sooner you play the better your odds of getting some! On Saturday, January 24th, if there are any gift coins left in the stack they will be deleted from pandora.

Limitations

  • The event gift coin stack can only be won when using pandora passes (not free grabs)
  • When the stack is gone, they are gone.
  • This stack does not count against the the reset total
  • This stack will not be reset or effected by a pandora reset
  • The amount of gift coins taken from the stack will be at least 5
  • The amount of gift coins taken from the stack will be at most 30
  • The remaining gift coins in the stack if any on 1/24/2015 will be removed before the auction takes place

Time for everyone's favorite auction special! A chance to use gift coins, vitality coins and adena to bid on items legitimately earned by the people who are no longer allowed to play this server for one reason or another. The gift coins earned from this auction will go into a prize pool for future contests and events, meaning it will go back into the server's economy!

This year to make the list of items that will go up for auction I'm gonna let you guys vote on them. I've added items to a reddit clone that will allow you guys to upvote and downvote the different items available.

How to vote:

  1. Goto http://vote.l15server.com
  2. Make an account and login
  3. Click the up arrow on the items in the Auctions SubReddit that you want to see auctioned off
  4. Click the down arrow on the items in the Auctions SubReddit that you do not want to see auctioned off

Ultimately the final decision of what goes into the auction will be up to me, but with this method you guys will help me know what items you really want to try to bid on.

Auction Time
The auction will happen around 7PM EST on Saturday, January 24 and will last several hours.

Other notes
The actual auction takes place in teamspeak, so be sure to download that and be ready to connect before the scheduled time.

All Giftcoins contributed from auction bids will be placed into a pool used for upcoming contests and events. The first of which will begin in February!

The wizards of the Ivory Tower managed to work together and generate enough power to teleport the souls and spirits that flooded the top of the Ivory tower. They couldn't destroy them, as the rift is still open. They managed however to relocate them to the basement of the ivory tower. This freed the possessed members of the Ivory Tower's army, allowing them to return to their duty.

Unfortunately when they moved these spirits it awoke the rift guardian who was pulled into the teleportation as well. He is very angry the rift was open on his watch and is determined to make it up by destroying everyone in sight.

If you want to goto the Ivory Tower Basement, talk to Ellione on IT3 who will teleport you down there.

Other Changes
Ivory Tower 4F+ is gated off until the elves have figured out a plan for sending a raid party to close the rift.

All broken or bugged TOI floors are fixed.

Drop rates on shards are all increased on IT B1

As many of you have heard, the new client that has been on the beta server for many weeks is ready for release. The official release date will be Tuesday, January 13th. At 9 AM EST the server will be brought down for updating. The estimated down time for this update will be between 3-4 hours. During this time the server may come up and go down while I'm testing and fixing things. A post will be made to clarify when the server is completely ready.

Originally the plan was to release on Monday, however due to problems with setting up the new installer, I wanted to give you guys more time to download the new installer and prepare your computers to connect with the new client.

You can be sure you are ready to connect by connecting to the test server after installing the new client. The test server's database is based on the database from around November, this means if you have changed your password since then, you will need to login with your old password.

If you are having problems connecting to the test server or the live server after release you can check this guide to assist in trouble shooting your connection problem: http://boards.l15server.com/t/connectivity-issues/373/2

If you are on a mac you will need to install windows on your mac to be able to connect after Tuesday's restart. A guide to installing windows on a mac is posted here: http://boards.l15server.com/t/connecting-to-l1-5-with-macs/375

Here are the download links for the new installers:

Web Installer
Description: This installer is a smaller file that downloads the actual game client from the internet seperate from your browser to provide a more stable connection for those who have issues with downloading large files.
Link: http://www.l15server.com/files/L1.5_Installer_v3.zip
Mirror: https://mega.co.nz/#!6wQhHIZB!4LVHT_eMjWzjiB3GGNitQxRG2vA0Zj6hkcQCceN8DSc

Single File Installer
Description: This installer contains the whole set of files self contained allowing you to download the whole thing through your download client or web browser.
Link: http://www.l15server.com/files/L1.5_v3_single.exe
Mirror: https://mega.co.nz/#!P05F2JKA!EZ5U4fCGfYsj7f5iN-jteSs-a_fEZWQq1t-kioFroxw

Some Mirrors will be uploaded as soon as I finish uploading the Single File Installer.

Once you have the game installed and tested working on the test server (choose L1.5 Test on the server select) then you are ready for the release on Tuesday.

I'm working hard to make this update as smooth as possible.

Good Luck,
Have Fun,
GM Zajako

So the time has finally come for getting a good set of beta tests for the new client. I've put in a lot of polish and time into translations and tweaks to make things much better. I've also spent a lot of time fixing bugs and tweaking things to be as they should be. Now, I need you guys to connect to the test server and help me find any new bugs before i make the final installer for the new client and convert the live servers to requiring it.

You can download the beta client here: www.l15server.com/files/L15Beta.rar
Mirror: https://mega.co.nz/#!CpRyXZpK!OPMMFovWzKZbgOKOk4R0WTTuXgSrJUzsa3-7MQonXsw

You can extract the rar file using a free program called WinRar obtainable from www.rarlabs.com

Once WinRar is installed, simply right click on the L15Beta.rar and click Extract Here. Then enter the folder thats created when the extraction is done, then double click Login.exe (some people may need to right click login.exe and run as admin)

When choosing which server to connect to, ensure you are connecting to the L15 Test server and not the main server as the main will not work with this client.

Any Korean text you find throughout the client, bugs or things that don't work that do work on the live server or any other issues, report on the beta boards located at http://boards.l15server.com/category/l1-5-discussions/beta-boards

If things go well, we may upgrade to the new client in as soon as a week. If things are a bit bumpy it may take until closer to the end of the month. The more bugs you guys find now though, the less bumpy it will be when it goes live on the main server.

If you have having connection problems with the test server, follow the guidelines here: http://boards.l15server.com/t/connectivity-issues/373

Happy New Years! To celebrate this year we are releasing some new items. Also this year I will be focusing on developing new things for players to do every day as well as adding many new zones for players to hunt every day. Within the next month we should be upgraded to a newer better client, which screens and more information will be provided soon.

The two new event items are as follows:

New Year's Cubic - 2015 - This cubic is like the golden cubic and its contents may change throughout the year. This cubic will expire and no longer work when it is 2016. You can use both this cubic and the golden cubic once a day, however you can only use one New Year's cubic on each character each day, even if you have 2 or 3 new years cubics on your character. This cubic is also non tradeable. The items obtainable from the cubic currently are the same as the golden cubic. Uses for the New Year's Cubic reset at 1am each night rather than the way the golden cubic resets as it uses the new daily system instead.

New Year's Celebration Pin - This brooch gives 4 slots, hp/mp and some stat points. Click the link to see the exact stats gained or search for it in the library.

Rebalancing changes
Mobs in the underworld have had their hp decreased by a lot

If all mobs are cleared from a harvester in process the timer for the next wave will go 5 times faster, decreasing your wait time dramatically.

Bug Fixes
Party members should receive the quest item properly when doing harvest now.

Storing the value of quest triggers to the database is done properly now to fix many other weird bugs that were occurring with the harvester quest.

Other Notes
The daily quests that were in progress were cleared. This means if you have the quest items in your inventory, it doesn't matter, you'll have to talk to the npc to start the quest again. You will maintain the charged stones you have if you do this, so your progress on the quest isn't lost.

New Items/Rewards
Finishing the quest now gives SXP, EXP, Clan EXP item, Clan SP item.

You can now receive the HighDensity Energy Stone from the quest npc

You can use water energy fragments on the HD energy stones to level them up.

Quest Changes
The quest now only requires 5 energy points harvested instead of 7. Quest monsters should do more damage as well.

Misc Changes
Npc that starts quests and such completely re-organized messages.

Bug Fixes
Quests should properly clear daily allowing you to start them the next day

You can now do all 3 quests each day instead of just 1

Monsters should deal damage even if you have high DR.

The underworld has been released with new daily quests and new drops. Some new holiday items have been released as well. Read the details below.

The Daily Quests
You can now do up to 3 daily quests in the underworld. The daily quests are started from the Dwarf that is outside of the underworld, which is below WindaWood castle. Each daily quest is done on the corresponding floors 1-3. To perform the quest you will need to find the different harvesting points and defending them from the monsters Shilen summons to you while your harvester does the dirty work. Read the message the Dwarf gives you when you accept the quest for more details.

The reward for these quests are different levels of Water Energy Fragments that will be usable on a HighDensity Energy Stone that will be released very soon. By using these fragments on the HDES you will begin to charge it up. When it is fully charged you can choose to use it in part of the quest toward becoming Tier5 or trade it in toward getting some Elixir Tokens. So even after you become T5, you'll be able to benefit from doing the dailies.

New Event Items
Christmas Present - 2014: This item gives you a Large Holiday Tree, Small Holiday Tree AND a Gingerbread Cookie - 2014

Holiday Tree: This item spawns a smaller christmas tree for a temporary time.

Large Holiday Tree: This item spawns a larger christmas tree for a temporary time

Gingerbread Cookie - 2014: This item when consumed gives you superbrave buff for 5 minutes.

With the gift coin wheel doing what it usually does, gift coin prices have gotten obscene! The highest I have seen them ever! Nearly 10-11mil each! Something had to be done to both bring gc flow into the server and make the gc price more affordable. I have thought long and hard about what I can do to help the economy of the game. The best thing I could think of to jumpstart the gc flow and make gc more affordable is to increase the gc price per dollar. The new rate is 9 gift coins per dollar donated. To balance this change in the game the npcs that take gc have increased their price by 60-100% to reflect the 80% increase of gc given out. Most of which leaning toward being cheaper in costs. There are a few items that may have their prices lowered as well.

Now because this is such a huge drop in value of the gc themselves it would be unfair to those who have auctions up for the prices to be left alone. So I have boosted all AH prices 80% to match the inflation. It is advised though that you go in and adjust your prices to whatever amount that you think the item will sell for at the current value of gc.

One final note about this change is that the donations that were made after the gift coin wheel ended, ( Sunday and Monday ) have received the increased amount of gc as well, as the change was intended to happen on Sunday.

I hope these changes help bring some balance and harmony to gc prices and that it is enough to help make the economy thrive again!

Good Luck,
Have Fun,
GM Zajako
