[Notice] Attendance Message | Known Issues [Updated - 2/23/17]

Greetings Adventurers,

We're aware of players receiving the message "The Attendance Reward Event is not in effect." and will be working to resolve this in a minor hotfix. Our current estimate on applying this will be early tomorrow, however this may be subject to change.

Update [165mb Patch]: The hotfix has been applied and should resolve the Attendance Reward Event messages. Players will need to relaunch the game and download a small patch to apply the fix.

 

Additional Ongoing issues we are aware of and are working to resolve:

  • Some titles have encountered an issue during the patching process and will be resolved at a later date.
    • Some of the titles include:
      • Conqueror of Balenos
      • Conqueror of Serendia
      • Conqueror of Calpheon
      • Conqueror of Mediah
      • Conqueror of Valencia
  • For players experiencing an issue with the quest(s) involving the Dim Magical items, you may need to abandon the quest and then re-accept it to progress.
  • There is an issue with the alternate language settings for NPC voice overs, currently players are urged to use the normal default voice setting.

Fixed Issues:

  • Beauty Album and Photo Gallery are currently offline and will be brought online as soon as possible. *Fixed*
    • Please note the Photo Gallery may require additional time to bring online.
  • Some text is missing from the updated Channel Change screen and will be resolved in a future maintenance. *Fixed*
  • The North America - Calpheon 1 channel was not fully initialized and should be fixed shortly. *Fixed*
  • One of the purchase buttons in the pearl shop is currently not functioning as intended, please see the image below: *Fixed*
  • Holes in the game world around the Shakatu's Territory. *Fixed*
  • Players may encounter an issue in certain areas of the ocean when sailing a boat, we do not currently have an estimate on when this will be resolved. We have included a helpful image created by a user of the area that is currently affected. *Fixed*
  • The floating debris in the newly released ocean content appear to be shy and are currently not letting players interact with them. *Fixed*

How wonderful...so we are supposed to look at that message for the next 10+ h or more...? I mean i am online all day long with afk brakes in between.

The attendance calendar states that the receivable period is until 22nd of February ,i don't see why we can't receive the rewards we have not claimed.

Thats some new "recently updated quests" function. You can choose how many quests you want it to keep track of at the same time, 3, 2, 1 or none. I just put it on 0 and it went back to looking like normal except some new separate black spirit quest tab that howers around above the regular quest tracker :|

If a fence is unused, after 6 days, it usually goes to your storage.

It may potentially be auto collected in your warehouse, if not you may always use a regular farm to plant the seed on.

There are loads of different wordings in different places that makes the attendance thing very confusing for me, so I'd love if a GM could answer this officially.

Can we keep claming these attendance things every new day until the 22nd? As in lets say I have an accessory box tomorrow, can I claim it tomorrow? Or can I no longer get new claims, only recieve the items I haven't already claimed(why wouldn't you click it instantly?).

Could you make the start game button available again after getting the 'connection with the server has been lost'? Or do you want us to restart the game 100 times?

I have restarted the game several times and still receive the Attendance Reward Is Not In Effect.  I check my bank and it is not in my bank either.  I asked in chat and someone responded it was in the mail.  I did not see it in the mail.  I have 3 of the Lauren Event gifts in my bag and none in the bank.  I do not remember opening those boxes for several days and have let items stack up.

Glad to see they fixed it so it makes it a real chore to even log on.

How can you fix game function and then just break something else? How does that work?

Did you have a planning meeting to see how much aggravation you could cause in the community by breaking even more game function.
