  1. There are currently no plans no adding the HP drain back, since this was an official update which took part during the official kRO - Job Improvement Project of Sura.
    As usual, we try to keep all mechanics as official as possible and then rather balance around those new systems.


  2. Regarding Taming Items:
    1.) Universal Tamers are great time-savers and can be gained from several sources
          a.) You can buy them in the Adventure Guild Shop in exchange for C-Coupons
          b.) You can buy them from the Vote Shop in exchange for Vote Points
          c.) You can recieve them from Daily Login rewards (directly and from Rich Boxes)
          d.) You can recieve them from Event rewards
          e.) You can purchase them from the Cash Shop in exchange for Cash Points

    Please note that Universal Tamers are capable of taming ANY pet.

    2.) There are a handful of taming items that can be crafted with ease. https://www.gatheringro.ch/wiki/Tame_Ingredients

     

    3.) You can farm taming items prior to attending the actual daily quest which is technicaly the same like monster killing or an item farming quest.

    It's the easiest/fastest quest if done right.


  3. Yes, i absolutely agree that its current effect isn't "spicy" but rather very basic.
    The initial nerf just brough it even closer to Tao which created that weird thing that's placed inbetween the original Tao Gunka and the Sealed Tao Gunka Card.
     

    When it comes to a card overhaul, the sky is the limit.
    While that sounds good at first glance, it just makes it really hard to find a good spot to fit it into.


  4. I think the main issue is the player's perception of a "World Boss" Card.
    Since World Boss refers to the strongest monster that is out there ravaging our tiny humans, players tend to think that its card is supposed to be superior.

    But we never intended World Boss Cards to become your main picks, but rather an addition to an already great roster of cards.

    Each time such a topic comes up, player's only reasoning behind is:

    Lets Compare Werewolf to Tao for example, Tao > Werewolf (we all can agree to this right ?)

    Because its effect is a total trash as a World Boss card


    Simply because you expect it to be either, better than a normal boss (MVP) card, or at least equal to a boss (MVP) card.
    And having a World Boss Card that its core is based on a MVP card effect just makes it look even worse than it is.



    Maybe this explanation clears it up:

    If a world boss card is stronger than a casual MVP card, that means that we're directly interfering with the natural balance of the very core game.
    If a world boss card is equal to a casual MVP card (almost impossible to directly compare, but let's just assume it is equal), that means that we're yet again, interfering with the natural balance of the game, especialy if the effect is unique and can't be achieved with any other card of the same type.

    Yes, we've released MVP cards and items that interfere with the game balance.
    But we always released those items with a certain purpose to rebalance this natural balance which we felt wasn't just right. (Goldring Boss Card is a good example for that)

    World Boss Cards were never designed to directly impact this natural balance.
    They were designed as an easy way to get your hands on a strong card for everyone, simply because

    it doesn't require skill to fight the boss.
    It doesn't require lots of strength to fight the boss.
    It doesn't require precise timing to fight the boss.

    It's not stressful, it's a very basic but great team effort.


    Normal MVP Boss monsters aren't that easy to farm for newbies, because geared up players do possibly camp and kill them in a few seconds.
    Or they are locked behind instances that they can't finish just yet, at least not without having a proper team.
    These classic bosses aren't timed events everyone joins with you, but require some prequisites and/or planning.

    While a World Boss allows newcomers (and everyone else) to have a relaxed and fun environment, while having the chance to get a card easily (easy as in stated above, not talking about drop chance).
    That's why World Boss Cards shall never be directly compared to classic MVP Boss Cards.
    That's why their purpose is different, and thus not as strong as a true classic MVP Boss Card.


    And please don't get me wrong:
    I still have an open ear for a rebalance for the card if everyone thinks it's really THAT useless.
    But you will have to change your mindset on World Boss cards before expecting to get an Advanced Tao Gunka or Thanatos 2.0.


    I hope that clarifies my point of view.

     


    Current state:

    Right now, Werewolf offers basically a tradeoff to Tao Gunka.
    While you get less of a MaxHP boost, your defense stays 30% stronger.

    But what everyone is and has been asking for is to remove the negative tradeoff effect entirely and on top of that boost it up even further with an additional effect on top.
    It would simply become stronger than Tao Gunka, especialy for those players who already reach the max HP cap with their current gear set.


  5. Castle Invitations aren't that easy to obtain.
    You can apply for an invitation by talking to the NPC who's standing near the castle entrance.

    It's a raffle, so you've to get lucky.
    The invitation will be consumed upon entering.

    You won't be able to re-enter until you get another invitation.


    More information about our castle can be found here:

    and the cloister, which resides within the castle:

  6. Maybe, but the fact that a Sura can snap in and out within a fracture of a second and push out hard-hitting combos without any drawback makes a sura basically invincible.
    I personally believe that Sura, with its current ablities and extremely low cooldowns is too versatile when it comes to speed and damage combined.

     

    So i definitely want to address that.

     

    But it would be great to get some more feedback on this.

    Dear GatheringRO players,

    let's support each other with some new and updated guides by introducing the unique forum event Write-A-Guide!

    This event has officialy started and will last until the 30th of June. Every new guide that is written within that period of time or every guide that receives a major overhaul by its author will automatically be registered for this event.

    The main criterion for this event is QUALITY & DETAILED INFORMATION.

    Writing multiple guides that lack in quality will not improve your chances to be among the winners. The more effort you put into this, the higher the chances we will not let your efforts go to waste. If you want your old guide to be considered, you will have to do some major edits (e.g. if it currently lacks pictures, add those, go further into detail etc.).
    However that doesn't mean that cluttering your guide with tons of random images will improve its quality.
    Sometimes less is more, so make sure you create a clean guide everyone is able to pick up with ease.

    We prefer original guides for our Custom GatheringRO Features or Class Guides as this will help newbies and oldies find their way around GatheringRO.

    You can also write your own version of guides that already exist but which heavily lack in up-to-dateness (again, make sure the effort you put into it is visible). Keep in mind that in order to qualify guides have to be written in reasonable English and they have to contain high quality images.

    Lastly, we want to show you that we appreciate your recent guides. That's why we decided to also consider recent guides that are not older than 2 months for this event. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. There can be multiple winners. Prizes are intentionally set very high as each entry requires a lot of effort and contributes greatly to the community. We will choose 1 guide from among the winners which will receive Cash Points as an additional prize, and a 2nd and 3rd prize for an additional Account Plus egg.

    Prizes for every winner:
    1x GatheringRO Surprise Box GatheringRO Surprise Box
    2x Surprise Box Surprise Box (15-20 Tokens)
    1x Chest of Loyalty Chest of Loyalty
    1x Costume Golden Question MarkExclusive Costume Golden Question Mark (Equip Location: Upper Head)

    Additional Prize for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best guide:
    1x64604.pngAccount Plus for 1 Month

    Additional Prize for the best guide:
    1x 670.png 2000 Cash Points

    Summary:

    • Date: 2020.05.21 - 2020.06.30
    • How to participate: Write a new guide or (significantly) update an old guide of yours
    • Criteria: Quality, up-to-dateness, English (punctuation, grammar etc.), Images
    • Prizes: All winners get the prizes listed above, the best guides win additional prizes
       

    Uploading Images:

    • We prefer images being uploaded to our forums rather than using external image hosting services.
      This ensures that they don't get lost over the years!
      It's a simple drag&drop upload system, super fast to use and can be used for free.
      It also helps us to keep your effort for the longest period of time possible.

      Thank you

  8. A white drooping kitty doesn't actualy exist.


    The quest will be updated to fix the issue accordingly.

    White will become gray.

    Gray will become brown.

     

    Back in the days these item descriptions were different, so the quest does no longer match with the official named colors.


    Thanks for the report, and sorry for the circumstances. /no1


  9. The gibberish is the official korean description, which can't be displayed in ASCII ( which is what we use ).
    We've been working on a major item description update which should hopefully soon take place.

    And no, there's no workaround for item restrictions. /ok
    If they aren't storable, the main idea is usualy that you can't move them to other characters /blush

     

    From where did you get this item from?


  10. Originaly, this should only be displayed if you haven't fighted the boss (not dealt any damage).

     

    Still not sure what's the cause.
    My guess is that you're dealing too much dmg, which results in negative numbers, thus the system thinks you haven't done enough.

    World bosses weren't designed for ranger spam. /gawi

     

    The next update will include an experimental fix, hope it works this time around.


  11. Hey Maksikoz!

    Please never share your username in public for your own security.
     

    An e-mail has been sent with details on how to reset your password.
    So please go ahead and check your mails ;)

     

    Welcome back!

     

     

     

    If you're still having issues, either replay to this topic or send me a private message here on the forums or discord.
    That way you can share sensitive information without it being leaked to the public.

     

    Thank you.


  12. Ok i did some more tests and was able to confirm it.
    It looks like i was keep on working after i died, simply because i kept on testing on the same map.
    However... the issues seems to be bound when switching maps.

    Once you die and respawn, the skill can no longer be used on any other map.
    It is still working fine when you get back to the map where you originaly met your demise.


    Reported to rAthena devs:

    https://github.com/rathena/rathena/issues/4964


  13. Looks like damage on world boss maps are altered (doing less damage).

     

    This might be related to a mapflag bug in the emulator, because we do not alter any damage on these maps.
    We only restrict pneuma and tarot card to be used.

     

    Don't have an explanation for this just yet other than the mapflag system still seems to be utterly broken.
    (we've had other issues related to custom mapflags in the past)
