Update 2008-10-30 (Halloween)

Post by Jaxad0127 » 31 Oct 2008, 00:25

The Halloween event has officially started: a costume party at Dimond's Cove. Other updates include:
  • Visible gloves and shoes (for newer clients)
  • Shields
  • Rebalanced gameplay:
    • Melee is slightly easier (less dex needed)
    • Distance from target decreases chance to hit for both types
    • Shields don't work with bows
  • And more!

By newer clients you mean 0.24 +?

I can see the gloves when I unequip-equip them, but then when I equip the boots, the gloves disappear. Vice versa also. Also disappear when I change map.

Hi all,

is it part of the Event, that i only see gloves and boots on my character as well as a red "ERROR" under it? This happened after having the latest auto-update.... ?!?!?

If you are seeing error, please reequip your equipment. A small change was made and requires this.

All progress on the event and the new quest has been lost due to problems with the server. Because of this, the event will be extended until the weekend.

The server should be fine now.

And we very sorry about that. We're doing hourly off-site backups of the game data now, so this will hopefully not happen again.

You lost only 4 days of game time. Whatever you did during this time: You should be able to do it again.
