67th Update and Easter Event!

Hopefully everyone is doing well; despite the low activity things continue to be developed behind the scenes. We are happy to reveal that the Easter event is ready to be installed!

Let's meet Jesus!

The Easter event is a series of Arenas, if conquered, will allow a player to meet Jesus! Of course, having to defeat the 12 arenas of his disciples along the way might not put the Son of God in a great mood, so be prepared! As usual, since this is an event, there will be a small reward that is not included in the regular quest log.  Any player level 50 and above is welcome to try their luck!

As it is an Arena, the following applies:

1. All battles are solo; only 1 player and the summoned beast.

2. There are a total of 360 monsters to be randomly chosen from for your battle, sub grouped by your level.

3. All deaths in the arena zone will not "count", as in no loss of skills, experience, etc.

4. All runes, potions, and supplies used in the battle are used as normal, and the arena monsters give experience and drop loot as normal.

5. In addition to the 360 monsters to be chosen from, there exists a very small chance to meet the Easter Bunny! He is said to carry nice items that will help with your battles.

6. The majority of the arenas are "linked", meaning you must conquer several in a row without leaving to proceed.

7. The arena is located inside the Thais Arena; enter the teleport from Koya Temple to reach the Thais Arena as usual, and then head out towards the eastern exit.

There was quite a bit of mapping and arena teleport improvement for this event, so it will run a little longer than usual so all players can have a chance to enjoy and take part. The Easter event will start with the server save on Saturday April 3rd JST and end with the server save on Saturday April 10th JST.

There will be a slight extention of the next server save to ensure everything installed correctly.

After the next server save, the following changes will take effect:

1. Several map areas have been improved.

2. The server itself has been extended in payment again, with next scheduled payment to be made September 2021.

3. The Easter Event will begin and run for 1 full week.

As always, kindly report any errors (visual or game play) and thank you for all the reports and suggestions; best of luck in quests and have fun!

66th Update!

Although things seem a little slow on the surface, multiple works are unfolding in the background. Today, as part of the druid vocation review, we will introduce one more new spell which will help show how truly valuable having a druid in your party can be.

The new spell is "Boost Party" (animus adcumulo pars) and is available to use from magic level 40. It grants all members of the druid's party a 15% increase on their maximum hit points for a period of 6 minutes for a cost of 400 mana points per cast. This should add great value to having a druid in the team when challenging bosses and attempting difficult rooms like the banshee final room or the annihilator, to say nothing of the added benefit of having a boost in place when exploring new areas.

The spell only works if the party member is "in sight" of the druid, as shown in the range picture from the 65th update below. If anything is found to be in error for this spell, kindly let us know, and of course please feel free to discuss it on forums or in discord.

Furthermore, the Easter event is finalizing testing! A 13 arena spread of battles, encompassing 360 monsters, selected and placed randomly, awaits those who wish to ultimately visit Jesus.

More details on the specifics of the arenas, monsters, and battle areas to come, but the event is currently scheduled to be held from April 3rd-5th (72 hours) for all players level 50 and over to enjoy.

After the next server save, the following changes will take effect:

1. The druid spell "Boost Party" (animus adcumulo pars) will be available.

2. Some mapping errors regarding depot boxes and improper houses have been repaired.

3. Grorlam and Electric Bow puzzle have been improved in code slightly.

4. The speed of Frost and Earth Drakes has been boosted very slightly.

5. The Mage Challenge event has been improved in code slightly.

6. Due to the improvement of arena teleport for the upcoming Easter event, all arena teleports throughout Peora have received the improved code.

7. Some monsters corpses were adjusted to reflect the proper weights.

As always, kindly report any errors (visual or game play) and thank you for all the reports and suggestions; best of luck in quests and have fun!

65th Update!

It looked like everyone did well in the Valentine Event; we are pleased to say the event completed without any errors. Thank you as well for the feedback.

This is just a small update, introducing one new spell as part of our druid vocation review. As everyone knows, we recently adjusted druid summons, allowing them to be called up and down floors as well as return 100% experience instead of the regular 50. With that functioning well, we would now like to introduce a new spell which will help show how truly valuable having a druid in your party can be.

The full sight range of the spell

The new spell is "Heal Party" (exura sana pars) and is available to use from magic level 17. It follows the exact same healing formula as "Heal Friend" and costs 70 mana points per cast. Thus, beyond the ease of only casting 1 spell to heal your blocker and self, once your party grows in size, it can be a very economical way to ensure the entire team is kept safe. It will also be extremely helpful for those moments of panic when a creature retargets or players are accidently caught in the damage range; a druid in your party can instantly ensure everyone is healed.

The spell only works if the party member is "in sight" of the druid, shown in the range picture above. We greatly hope this will be not just an improvement to the druid vocation, but also offer an improvement in terms of dealing with some of the "mass battles" that take place in certain areas.

There is another spell for the druid vocation currently in testing; hopefully we will be able to release it soon. If anything is found to be in error for this spell, kindly let us know, and of course please feel free to discuss it on forums or in discord.

After the next server save, the following changes will take effect:

1. The druid spell "Heal Party" (exura sana pars) will be available.

2. NPC Hunt Master has been corrected for spelling.

3. Some inactive player houses have been emptied so active players can purchase them.

4. NPC Rashid has been repaired for plural errors in his purchases.

5. The monster Lumenia has been corrected in name to "Lumelia", and the items she drops have also been name corrected.

6. The upcoming Easter event, a 13 round arena challenge, has moved into the testing phase on test server.

7. With a great amount of help, a virtual environment allowing for the running of the peora server and client has been set up on the test system. This means no more map size limitations in the testing environment!

8. The monster of the week in Thais arena has been updated.

As always, kindly report any errors (visual or game play) and thank you for all the reports and suggestions; best of luck in quests and have fun!
