Patch Notes - May 18th

We have tested the EXP Rates and all bonuses are showing as in place, although this bonus is harder to notice at higher levels.  If you have some examples of this not working please post them with as much detail as possible and I will share it with the team.

I tested this. It took 20 minutes, +/- 2 minutes at Master 20 yesterday to get 1% XP for fishing. Today it takes over 40 for the same 1%. I don't know how you think that's working as intended if your intention was to give us +30%.

Ok. 120 fish would net me about 13% xp at master 10+ now its 120 fish for 3%. Not going to fish until the decimal point is fixed.

Uh,. no this is exceptionally horrific..
How to make everyone lose interest in a few seconds - give them all the end-game shit they usually have to work weeks to get.
I wish you would realize that...


And I should know... All I have left to do is enhance my accessories post Pri...

Dude you're a retard.

Please review the EXP increase as well.  Folks are reporting EXP has actually DECREASED from fishing, trading, and training.  I would take a look at all of them to make sure the problem isn't across the board.

It is playable for the 99% if you don't expect to be in the top 1%. 

I'm not top 1%, I'm still having fun. I don't mind no lifers being stronger than me, good for them, I know my limitations when going into a game.

Problem is everyone wants/expects to be 1% with just a few hours playtime a day, but almost no game works like this, the ones that do die fast because you run out of stuff to work towards.

these changes are just chipping away at the longevity of the game.

I myself also like a challenge and don't mind the grind, tired of super easy games that cater to people who can only play an hour... I like to invest my time and reap the rewards... if you don't like that you have to put in the time on THIS game, then play a DIFFERENT game that caters to your playstyle... *shrugs* not that hard... Might I suggest WoW??

Time to take a long break from the game, until they release Ninja.. this is stupid how they are handling not releasing it. Going to be so damn far behind it isn't even funny.

Jouska I know you're busy but can you please clarify? Will there be no decrease in enhancement levels during failure at anytime?

Many people believe that to be the case, but the wording of the patch notes is confusing.

So, as someone actively waiting for ninja as my main, not only have I missed out on 2 different combat XP weekends, and one fishing xp weekend, but now I get to miss out on 2 weeks of 30% xp increase.  This is utterly fantastic.  I'ts going to be wonderful fighting lv 59's as a lv 50.  Thanks for that.

Just release ninja/kuno broken,  I don't care.  At least I can level, christ.

Oh please.. they have xp weekends like every other weekend... it's not like this is the last one EVER IN THE HISTORY OF TIME!

I feel as if this is an effort to respond to all the youtube heroes.

Making the Game less of a grind:

1. Exp increase from Mobs

2. Exp increase Events

3. More Junk drops + Double trade in Value

And then giving a few weeks notice on a big update allowing people to prepare.

 

YET EVERYONE IS STILL COMPLAINING AND CRYING ABOUT MORE UPDATES THEY WANT YESTERDAY... lmfao

this is so true lol. LazyPeon and Pvt Wiggles both pointed this out.

It is, its a very small bonus and some people had good enough roll already. Those who rolled 1 hp per level for 50 level saw a bigger increase, the more 10hp roll you had lowered the retroactive bonus since you were high enough already.

Why only berserker got buff to HP? Valk, Warrior are fronliners aswell.

Last I checked, Valks and Warriors had shields, and Berserkers don't. I'm fine with those other classes getting HP boosts if my zerker gets a shield too.
