Progress Today

The Boss NPC treasure lists are working correctly, and Items are dropped/added to vault correctly.

I cannot foresee any further issues for the time being.

All that remains now is getting some monsters online!

Progress Today

Today, I have been working on Boss NPCs. As you may have heard, I've been experiencing some problems whilst testing the new addition to raiding.

In order to combat the problems, I have imposed a minimum of 2 members joining a raid before it can begin. This is to encourage teamwork and to reduce the chance of a raid ending because you 'fled with fatigue';)

I have integrated this with the War Log, which now reports battles that fail in this manner.

The next step is to make sure that treasure dropping is functioning correctly, then I will put the first Boss online:)

World Map Content

As part of the game's upgrade process, the world maps will be increasingly populated with monsters, buildings, spawn points, raids and resource nodes(fish, ore, etc).

The process will take a few weeks to pick up speed, but it's well on it's way now:) I look forward to finishing this!

Monthly Recruitment Competition!

We now have a monthly recruitment competition in which the top 5 players receive Point rewards!

Everybody is able to help recruit new players to the game, and it's very simple to do so now!

Check LEADERBOARDS/Recruitment Competition for more information.

Just to inform you, I will be taking the server off-line for a couple of hours on the 6th in order to install a few updates.

I apologise for any inconvenience.
