    Welcome to the general Patch notes for the Summer Event 2023 patch!

    This post will contain a comprehensive list of fixes, changes and new implementations for the server side of things. The client-related changes will come in a separate post.


    General Changes
    • The Summer Event is now active! Click here for details.
    • The Challenge system has been completely revamped: check our Balance Notes for more information.
      • Everyone's current Challenge progress has been wiped, as a consequence.
      • Because this is our final testing, there will be a new special prize ready to be claimed after a player has completed both the first two Challenge tiers!
        [​IMG]
    • The quests "The Run-down Huts in the Swamp" and "Find the Crumpled Piece of Paper Again" can now be completed at any time between 5am and 8am, or 5pm and 8pm server time, instead of only during the pm time.
    • "The Clocktower Monster Wipe-Out Operation" questline can now be accepted and completed.
    • A global notice for the defeat of Aufheben has been added, similar to the one for Horntail and Pink Bean.
    • 8bit-themed soundtracks have been reverted in all the maps they were applied to.
      • They will still be available via the !music command.
      • Note: for this current patch, the 8bit-themed soundtracks have actually been removed from the !music list. They will be made available for casual listening in an upcoming one!
    • Various NPCs have been recoded to our modern scripting system.
      • This is an ongoing project that began when we moved to stateless scripting. Whenever an NPC needs edits to their script, we first upgrade them to the new system, thus slowly eroding our technical debt from years of old code.
    • Faint Beam of Light (Dunas 2 ground particle NPC) will now display text instructing the player to move closer, instead of not triggering at all outside of close range.
    • Added support for quest start triggering via portal entrance.
    • Fixed missing handling for specific quest starting non-scripted actions.
      • This has no practical effect for players - although it streamlines future quest coding.
    • The Raise item system has been updated to allow for multiple item:exp pairs.
    • Disabled 500 and 750 NX cards drops from mobs.

    Skill Changes


    Beginner:
    • Axe Throw and Long Jump skills have been removed.
    Skill strings rework:
    • We have begun an extensive revamping project of skill tooltips, aimed both at standardizing the way data is presented, and at giving a better description / level rundown of potentially confusing ability effects.
      Among the many changes, the following skills are noteworthy:
      • [Night Lord] Alchemist, [Bishop] Resurrection: tooltip changed due to skill update.
      • [Beginner] Recovery, [Shadower] Band of Thieves, Smokescreen, [Corsair] Grenade: listed MP cost has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • GM buffs, [Dark Knight] Hex of the Beholder, [Shadower] Meso Guard: listed Duration has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • [Paladin] Heaven's Hammer, [Marksman] Snipe: listed Cooldown has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • [F/P Archmage] Explosion, [I/L Archmage] Ice Strike: listed attack range has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • [Night Lord] Shadow Meso: listed Meso cost has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • [Night Lord] Ninja Storm: listed pushing distance has been corrected, to reflect the actual value.
      • [Shadower] Chakra: listed recovery rate and damage reduction have been corrected, to reflect the actual value.

    Bugfixes

    General:
    • Character morphs now correctly swim at the default character swim speed.
    • Attempting to fame/defame a player who already maxed their fame (+/-30.000) will no longer silently fail; rather, a proper feedback message will be displayed.
    • Disabled (invisible) NPCs that are scripted can no longer be interacted with via keyboard shortcut.
    • Wild Tangles Hair no longer sports wild fuzzy pixels around the hair tips.
    • Rollered Hair no longer has an excessively pronounced shadow above the eyebrows.
    • Fixed a typos in Pink Mesoranger's, Hoony's and Gunny's default dialogs.
    • NPC Carta is now again a permanent fixture of Carta's Cave map, instead of a spawned npc.
    • NPCs Zheung Guan and Janitor Monk are no longer duplicated, in Sutra Depository 1-2F and 3-4F.
    • Encrypted Slate of the Squad (Horntail's Cave secret path entrance) no longer incorrectly moves players to the Cave of Light while they are in Cash Shop.
    Items:
    • Cookie (Anniversary event prize) can now be searched via Owl of Minerva.
    • Flairgrave (Knuckle) and Speargrave (Knuckle) can now be sold to NPCs for 550.000 mesos, up from 5.000 mesos.
      • This fix puts them in line with all the other Flairgrave/Speargrave weapon prices.
    • Added missing description for Maple Galaxy Laser Gun.
    • White Scroll description mentions the chance that your "item" will be destroyed, rather than just your "weapon".
    • Fixed placement of Rowdy Chair.
    • Avaracia's Blessing Chair now correctly heals 100 HP/MP.
    • Removed random white pixels from the four corner of Avaracia's Blessing Chair animation.
    • Blingin' Red Lipstick is now positioned correctly on the player's face, in the default face animation.
    • Winter Bunny Hats position has been fixed for dead player sprites.
    • Fixed name tags for the Anniversary event pets.
    • "Chief Grey Card": name and description have been changed to correctly mention "Chief Gray".
    Skills:
    • [Warrior] All interactions between Achilles and Power Guard / Beholder should now behave as intended.
    • [Warrior] This is a bug fix that we applied during the Dark Knight rework patch, but that we forgot to include in the patch notes: server-side rounding up of damage reduced by Achilles has been corrected. This fixes certain desynced visual/actual damage numbers, especially at low HP values.
      • In particular, this removes the ability to become "immune" to 1 HP damage.
    Maps:
    • "10-Year-Old Herb Garden" is no longer considered a Town map. This fixes Mystic Door usage in it.
    • "Phantom Forest : Haunted House" : Mystic Door will no longer risk glitching due to the party composition.
    • "Kerning City Subway Line 2 <Area 3>": fixed a disconnected ladder end sprite.
    • "Thailand - Small Jungle": fixed a missing rope end, and a non-functional rope.
    • "Tree Dungeon, Forest Up North IX": fixed a rope disconnected from the platform above it, which would make the player fall down while climbing.
    • "Malaysia - Muddy Banks 3": untangled whatever mess one of the ropes was stuck in.
    Quests:
    • "The Messenger of the Toy Palace 1": fixed in-progress description.
    • "Defeat the Great Offender": fixed a typo in Anzime's dialog.
    • "The Door to the Future": fixed a typo in Asia's dialog.
    • "The End of the Future": 'overflooded' has been corrected to 'overthrown' in Asia's dialog; fixed a dialog typo.
    • "In Search for the Lost Memory": fixed a typo in Grendel's dialog.
    • "In Search for the Lost Memory": fixed a typo in Dances with Balrog's dialog.
    • "A Request from Staff Sergeant Charlie": fixed a typo and some text formatting in Staff Sergeant Charlie's dialog.
    • "A Request from Sergeant Bravo": fixed a typo and some text formatting in Sergeant Bravo's dialog.
    • "A Request from Corporal Easy": fixed a typo and some text formatting in Corporal Easy's dialog.
    • "The Wooden Hoe that Snapped": fixed a typo in Kong Ji's dialog.
    • "Eliminating Chief Gray": fixed a typo in Black Mesoranger's dialog.
    • "Special Taste of Florina Beach II": fixed formatting of Riel's dialog.
    • "A Piece of Crack": fixed a typo in Flo's dialog.
    • "Making the Secret Medicine for Transformation": quest info text now correctly lists 2 Empty Dragon Elixirs as requirement.
    • "World Crumbles", "Reunion and Rebirth" (post-Aufheben quests): players will now be correctly warped to "2102 Roppongi Mall - Top Floor", if they have yet to start the quests, after defeating Aufheben, even after the first time.

    Awesome stuff! These changes generally don't get a lot of credit, but man the server would be in a rough spot without them.

    Great work as always! Thanks staff~

    I agree, been 1.5 day already server still not up yet.. Don't think it's a major patch looking at the notes given, but it's taking way too long. Original server in the past doesn't even go down for this long unless its a major patch... Not an expert here but would testing and rolling out on UAT server first is done then you can roll out on the Prod server? Would that be faster?

    In case you're new- every event patch on this server is a major patch and is expected to take a few days. Staff is all volunteers who have their own lives as well. Just be patient and let them do their thing.
