10th Anniversary Gifts

Update 1

On October 3, 2007, the following was published:

  • You will get less credit towards the new dungeon drops if you are hidden when the monster you are fighting dies.
  • You will get no credit if you are more than 16 tiles away from the monster when it dies.
  • Fixed an issue where Virtue Armor set pieces could have negative resists once unequipped
  • Fixed a display issue with the Virtue Armor set self-repair bonus (it was displaying 20 self repair - however, self repair is capped at 5. The set will now display 5 self repair )

Update 2

On October 18, 2007, the following was published:

  • Gareth, the quest giver for the Cloak of Humility quest, was relocated to Trinsic
  • Players that are logged in Magencia will be teleported safely to the Trinsic docks of their facet
  • Players will be unable to gate, recall, or Sacred Journey to Magincia

  • Fixed an issue where players were getting IGR timer errors and getting disconnected
  • Players with bushido skill should now be able to bond with lesser hiryus.

Update 4
