13.3 and new Party System is ready for Testing!
06/23/2011

We have updated our Sakray server for 13.3 El Dicastes update testing! This new update has 3 Large Story Arc quests, new Scaraba Dungeon (lvls 130+) new 3rd class specific equipment and a new Slot Enchanting System. We also have the new party system ready for testing too!

No skill changes should have occured with this update, so if something is different than it is on the live servers please report it on the forums as a potential bug as it may be caused by the new party system update.
The localization for the dialogue may still be a bit rough, but we want to start getting mechanic testing done with our community ASAP. Please report any bad dialogue, unreadable code or awkward language in the forum as well.

You will need a new Sakray Client to test on Sakray. All accounts are eligible to login to Sakray. There will be NPCs in the Eden Group for setting up your characters levels, and sending you to the quest areas for testing. Some unnecessary content is disabled so we can facilitate a cleaner testing session for 13.3.

Please download the new Sakray Client: install it in a different location than your normal RO installation, to avoid patching and playing problems later.


Yggdrasil Crown : Effect update!
06/15/2011

We are almost to the begining of our 2nd week of the 8th Anniversary event, and we have gotten much wonderful feedback on the "nostalgia" and prizes for our Dig up the Past event.

One piece of feedback that we've heard much of is the current Effect of the Yggdrasil Crown doesn't have enough pizazz and causes casting lock as its spells trigger. We certainly want to everyone to be excited about this headgear, and to want to use it, so we are going to update it with the following effects!

These changes will all start on Thursday, June 16!

The Yggdrasil Crown will no longer cast Heal, Agi up or Bless when you are hit by an enemy.

Instead the Yggdrasil Crown will make your heal effects you cast stronger and heal effects you receive stronger!

+0 effect 1% bonus on Heal Skills you cast & 1% bonus to receiving Healing effects from skills and potions.
Every upgrade from +1 to +6 gives another 1% bonus to both effects.
Every upgrade from +7 onward gives another 2% bonus to both effects.

Also if you have a Yggdrasil Crown at +7 or higher, the Turnin Events that we will be implementing through the Middle of July will allow you the option to combine the Base and Job exp into a lump total!

A further update to the Anniversary quest is the ability to repeat it! Every 6 days, if you have completed the quest to the end, you may speak to the Old Man in Prontera to do the quest again, to get the experience and another Yggdrasil Crown for you to upgrade!

We will also have the Yggdrasil Crown box in the Kafra shop for 300 points, if you do not want to run the Anniversary event on your characters!

Ragnarok Maintenance Time Change
06/14/2011

We are updating our scheduled game Maintenance for all our WarpPortal titles to Tuesday nights at 10pm to 2am PST.

The first Tuesday night maintenance will be June 21st.

We are making this change to address the fact that our prime playing time is in the middle of the afternoon, and having maintenance in the middle of that time is inconvenient to our players. Further, the Thursday maintenance time gives us very little time to have bugs or problems be reported and noticed before the weekend starts.

Tuesday night Maintenance addresses both issues well. We didn't move to this schedule in the past because we had certain restrictions on when all our games could have maintenance that we have since worked out.

This does mean that Wednesday Castle treasure will not spawn. This means that each WoE will get 3 days worth of treasure earning following it. We are not able to make restoration for the Wednesday Treasure.


USRC is Complete we have our Champions!
06/11/2011

Our 2011 USRC tournament has been completed. We have our champions for our RWC 2011!

TurBaconEpic will represent us in Korea for RWC!

If you want to see our Broadcast (pre-recorded) please visit our JustinTV channel. We will be making the fraps videos available next week for viewing as well, with Effects ON or OFF.

We hope you enjoyed USRC, in the next week or so we will be updating Sakray back to Renewal for 13.3 Dicastes testing!


Stat foods boost and Tradeable Reset Stone Mini-Event
06/09/2011

Starting today, June 9, 2011 until June 28th all +10 stat foods purchased through the kafra shop will give +15 instead for the duration of the event. This applies to newly purchased food and the ones you already have so get out there and make sure to bring a spork, too!

Also beginning June 9, 2011 and running for the next two weeks, reset stones can now be traded. If you are buying one for a friend to reset or to bring along more people to the Overlook Dungeon, this is your lucky day! This is a test change, so we do appreciate your feedback.

Ben Recycle is also properly processing slotted Guards and will now take Stone Buckers in exchange for 2 rough elu and 2 rough ori so if you have some of these items that you would like to trade in, he can be found in his usual spot in Prontera.
