    Patch Notes - April 26th 2017

    Greetings Adventurers,
    This weeks scheduled maintenance is estimated to be 7 hours long and contains over 80 changes & updates.  Following this maintenance players will be able to enjoy the new Sticker UI, which allows you to extend your in-game interface outside of the game window along with many other updates.  This weeks, the patch will be ~1000MB in size.

    -The BDO Team

    [ Event ]
    Golden Flondor Goose Egg Event has ended.
    [ System ]
    Sticker UI that will allow users to drag some UI elements out of the game screen has been added.
    Upon clicking the Sticker UI icon on the top-right corner of the Inventory, the following windows can be dragged outside the game screen:
    Manage Workers
    When Sticker UI function is activated, it will keep running outside the game screen even if other windows are turned on.
    However, some of the functions cannot be performed in Sticker UI window.
    When the pop-up is released, the window will reopen.
    When a window is dragged out of the game screen, it cannot be closed with the ESC key. The window can only be turned off by clicking the X button or releasing pop-up status then turning it off.
    When minimizing the game screen to tray, the Sticker UI will disappear.
    Sticker UI will reset in /reloadui situations (server change, resurrecting in nodes after death, etc.).
    Screens without render modes cannot use the Sticker UI (Ex. If World Map is turned on when Inventory is open, Inventory pop-up window will black out and no action can be taken).
    Drag-and-drop function is allowed only in the Sticker UI and in-game screen (Not in Windows screen).
    Marketplace Sticker UI can only be applied in Marketplace Panel through Game Options. Marketplace through Maids and NPCs are not available.
    Last Server Connected and Random Server functions have been added to the bottom part of the server list window which appears upon connecting to the game.
    Last Server Connected will show the server a player has most recently connected to, and players may now click it to reconnect.
    Adventurers who cannot connect to Olvia Server cannot connect to it even if Random Server is selected.
    Adventurers who can connect to Olvia will randomly connect to one of all servers, including Olvia Servers, by selecting Random Server.
    Fixed the issue where ‘Party Member Hit Type Display’ differed with the checked state under ‘Character Outline/Silhouette Options.’
    Fixed the issue where frame reduction occurred sometimes with the Equipment Selection UI while performing Recover Max Durability.
    Minimap-related functions like Minimap rotation and NPC spotter have been fixed to perform normally.
    Some areas of Iliya Island have turned from Safe Zone to Combat Zone.
    [ NPC ]
    Fixed the issue where Herio in Crioville became invisible when players were talking to him.
    Fixed the issue where crows near Kasula Farm seemed to be flying through-and-above grounds.
    Fixed the issue where Cyclops conversing with the Crio in Crioville appeared to be Quest Target when it wasn’t.
    Title of <Cannon Maker> has been added to Vype Stoner of Northern Heidel Quarry.
    Katan Recruit, the target of quest [Daily] Training of the Solemn Martial Law, will now have more natural running motion.

  21. CM_Aethon added a post in a topic Support tickets priority   

    Some tickets are inherently more time sensitive than others, this is not to say we're putting a value on one ticket over another, but rather our team may have to react in a very limited window of time in order to be able to resolve an issue. A majority of the tickets operate on a first come first serve process as you'd expect.
    For the folks who are concerned about time windows for pearl refunds, I can assure you that we factor in when the ticket was created, not when we're able to process it. I know our support staff are working through the tickets as quickly as possible and you should see the response time begin to stabilize soon.
    Those of you with the extended wait times, we hear ya and we appreciate the patience while things are settling down.

    Look folks, you're welcome to voice your opinions, ideas, and suggestions on the forums in a civil manner that promotes discussion. Using it as a means to launch personal attacks, or shout other opposing opinions down in a disruptive and disrespectful manner is not permitted.
    Users who choose to ignore the rules and post in this manner will be fast tracked to a lovely vacation from the forums.
