Design Notes

Tuesday, August 29th Updates

New News For You to Use

With so many players on so many different platforms, the team and I found that our information had become really scattered over the last few years. Earlier this year, we began these "round-up" Design Notes posts make sure everyone has access to all of the same info, no matter which platform you use. Read on to get all the latest news on updates, fixes, and sneak peeks.

You've Got Questions...

We've got answers! A few rapid-fire FAQs we've been seeing lately, and the answers you're after.

  • When will potions and party bugs be fixed? As soon as arachnophilically possible. Spider's our go-to guy for these fixes, and we've got dibs on his time and talent just as soon as he finishes his current list of Infinity combat updates.
  • Can you make X character page badge? Maybe! It depends on what badge/s you'd like to see. Right now, we have 2 in progress. One for the Eclipse Ascent dungeon and the other for the Radiant Goddess of War armor. Let us know on Discord & Twitter what else you'd like to see!

New House Items Incoming!

That's right; we've got two new house item functions on their way this week!

  • Guild Only Signpost: Add this to your house to make it Guild only accessible to your guild members.
  • Friend Only Signpost: Add this to your house to make it Guild only accessible to other players on your Friends List. 

Each of the above cost 0 ACs and can be found in Penny's House Item (Other) shop in /buyhouse.

IN TESTING: the House Visitors +5 Signpost. Goal: to allow you to increase the number of players you can in your house at one time. Again, this item is still in testing and is planned for release (if all goes well) in the future. Price: a non-zero AdventureCoin amount 

August 29th || Lost Guardian Blade 2

The Guardians who watch over the tower in Battleon are famous throughout Lore, with a history going back for years upon years. Grizzled veterans tell tales to new recruits of the strongest and bravest among them, filling their heads with dreams of glory and visions of bright blades flashing in the sunlight. Talk to Valencia in the /museum to begin a series of quests to reforge a blade by one of these lost, legendary guardians!
Quests + reward are permanently available.

And don't miss part 1 of our "Treasure Hunt Tutorial" quest line from August 15th, starting with the Shattered Guardian Sword wall item...

Gib badge pls?

Due to popular request, a character page badge for the Voice in the Sea World Boss** has been added!

How to get the character page badge:

  • Talk to Tara's NPC and click on the "Badge Quest" button. (Requires full storyline progress) 
  • Complete the Voice in the Sea Badge Quest (requires x1 Algal Bloom) to get your badge!

This quest will only be available until August 28, 2023.

Anyone who brought the 'Ascended Cosmic Chaos' Ground Rune item when the pricing was 6,000 ACs have been refunded their ACs.

Battle? or Butter On!

Anywhoo, that's all I have in this roundup for today. Hopefully I have something in the works for next month, only time will tell! 👀👀👀

Wednesday, August 9th Updates

Aaaaaah-Gust News!

Haii everyone, Yoshino here! With so many players on so many different platforms, the team and I found that our information had become really scattered over the last few years.

Recent Changes

The following issues should have been addressed:

    • This includes: Julyhub, Icestorm, Akibalight, Brightlights, Yokaistarriver
    • Don't forget to grab these rare house items before the end of the month
  • Lavazard in Augusthub has been eating a lot of items. Our usual seasonal August drop items will now also drop from it.
    • MC Runty included! (Wait.. did the Lavazard eat him?!?)
  • We've also changed a select few house items (R) versions to be rare as you can now flip house items.
    • This applies to: Immortal Crusader's Steed, Marble Merlion Fountain, Merlion Fountain
