May House Contest!

02 May 2018 (03:36) by Gamemaster Knighter


For the month and may, we will have one large house contest. We will be selecting 10 Houses to win 1000 free Archlight Coins, and also a House Contest Winner Blade in Stone (Can be used as Deco to show you have won the house decoration contest)! That's 200 Euros of Points!

You do not need to submit your houses for this contest! CM's + Council will go around town at the last day and pick 30~ houses, from there, staff will all have a chance to vote, with Knighter having the final say. Please note, it's not about what's inside or the items worth, but the decoration of the house itself! Clever themes and ideas are always taken highly into account!

Houses must be finished decorating by Saturday May 12th!

Winners will be chosen on Monday May 14th posted on our website!

Get to decorating and goodluck!

 Emoji System Added
This is something we wanted to add long ago, however due to complications and test restraints, its something that was pushed off. Well. We added it. Yikes.
Players will now have access to dozens of different emojis, all of the basic ones will be free, however we will have 10 that are in the Arch Shop as they are "extra spicy" emotes. We plan to add more unique emotes in the near future as well.
Emoji's are triggered by simply saying the standard emoji phrase with nothing in the same line
For example, an emoji would not trigger by you saying "How are you today :)?", to trigger it, you would simply type :) - this is so emoji's arn't triggered when people dont want them to be.
Additionally a list of all emoji's can be found by saying !emoji

The Kraken World Boss + Kraken Set added to Forgotten Islands
The Kraken has a random 4 day interval spawn time. The Kraken will also drop a precursor to a Boss Armor Set called Kraken Armor. Kraken armor is stronger and more powerful than reforged mastercrafted armor however requires reforged mastercrafted armor to complete. The Kraken will drop the precursor called damaged kraken armor, which can be made complete by sacrificing reforged mastercrafted armor. 

More Reward Boxes
We have added 17 more power tiers to the solo dungeon boxes, and 12 more power tiers to the team dungeons boxes

Boss Dusts Reworked
Quest Equipment now can be disenchanted into Quest Dust. 
This dust will be used in many different crafts (as the boss dusts we're supposed to), however they will now properly apply based on the dust you have as well several other recipes will now include them. Extra quest equipment (Darksteel weapons, armors, Sharptooth weapons, etc) will now be able to be disenchanted into something useful.
  
Quest + Task NPC's Added to Third Forgotten Island

Misc Changes
Over 30 Map Bugs Fixed
PvP Power and Resistance removed from !character panel
Cavern Dragon special attack fixed
Cult Brain now properly has a threat meter
Frost shield now properly reflects damage for 10s instead of just once

Necromancers can no longer summon Shadowform before obtaining the Legendary Spell
POI Reward Room now has a portal out so players arn't forced to travel out
T2 Hemorage now 100% is fixed and deals 2x the damage of T1 (Sorry, complications)
