As of this point, it's safe to say that our Vintage server (I'll talk about Modern later...) is in a good position for recruitment right now. After seeing how much work we needed on launch, we hit pause on recruitment and focused fully on fixing bugs, adding helpful features, and so on. There are still more things coming down the pipe that we want to fix (like nipping some client crashes, making party windows lock properly, etc!)

Recruiting more players
To aid in the recruitment, we're going to set up a few things. The first one is gpacks, a set for small friend groups, a set for moderate friend groups, and a set for woe groups
  • Newbie packs, 5/15/25 packs, 25 for woe guilds, 15 for small guilds, and 5 for friend groups. All will contain freebies from the Legacy Gear shops so they can immediately BG/WoE/MVP. (and of course, a few costume tickets. always give a sample of drugs to get them hooked on it.). It will be OK to retroactively apply despite not being a new player, for the record!. Full information on this will be posted at a later date.
  • Finally being put on Vote sites/RMS and getting referral points and voting points that are worth working for!
  • Proxy for Asia/Europe (gated only by server costs for now unfortunately)
Vintage Server Trans WoE
Trans WoE! There is no point in having a gpack for trans guilds who don't have a WoE to prep for, but luckily, you do!
Our Target first WoE for Trans will be May 19, 1 hour after the current PT WoE time (though the guilds participating can discuss this, it's just our goal). Of note for the Trans WoE:
  • None of the Renewal conversion items will be available for (at least) 1 month, to give guilds time to prepare. If you're wondering if an item is available for use on Trans WoE, the answer is whether or not the item is in the BG Gear or Legacy Gear shops (the one exception is Sunglasses[1] and a few items from the official cash shops, such as I Love China Hat and Parade Cap). The cards allowed will be none added after the mobs from Episode 11 (Cursed Abbey/Thor's Volcano cards will be in, but not the New World+ cards). If you know the item IDs, it's nothing past Hibram card (Malangdo enchants will not apply either, only the Hidden Enchants, but go ahead and make those DEX+2 Combat Knife for BG).
  • When/if renewal items get added to WoE, it will be per episode, instead of all at once. The details on what is available will be announced for their "unveiling" several weeks before they will be allowed in WoE (but obviously, you can still gather the items as they come).
  • The Progression history will be based off the iROwiki list in order to ensure people know what is coming and when. See
  • Denewalled 3rd jobs and Extended 2nd jobs (Doram/Rebellion/Kagerou/Oborou) will never be added to Vintage server.
Modern Server
Unfortunately our Modern Server is still a bit behind, in large part because of rAthena missing so many things (in spite of all the things we have added in..)
We need people who play Renewal and love it to tell us what we need to add to reduce much more of the grind. Please. Because when it comes to Renewal, we're only slightly less incompetent than the iRO staff.
Things that we know need done for the future are the following:
  • Enchantments automatically maxing out. What this means (and is already done for Faceworm's Nest, so ex you always get stat+7 on Giant Faceworm Skins) is that the best stat available will always be granted.
  • Fallen Angel Wing enchanter, kage/obo enchanter, etc. missing.
  • Rebellion Awakening skills bug fixing (Madness Canceller, Gatling Fever, probably some others)
  • Kagerou/Oborou/Summoner skills bug fixing.
  • Delays on some skills are either too short or too long. Part of this is because our server uses a 200 ms minimum delay, while other renewal servers use a 100 ms minimum delay. We will likely stick to 200 ms for some weird niche cases like Warg Strike, but there are other weird instances like Hell Plant where gravity just randomly decided to remove the animation on it, so we have it faked now.

I hope you're ready. I hope you've been helping recruit your friends. I've personally been working on this server using up a lot of free time and money that was, of course, much better spent doing other things.

But Rag All Night Long cannot be resisted!!

MRJ is still bamboozled without internet. I have instructed him to find the nearest Starbucks and camp out for awhile.

Patch will be happening without him. Client patch has already been pushed out. Let us know if something seems missing, etc.

  • Double reflect bug has been fixed.
  • Supremacy requirement has been set to 7v7 after the 10v10 experiment.
  • You will not be marked AFK when waiting in KVM dead zones. Same fix can be applied to Supremacy if needed.
  • The bug with PT Kafra castle warp has been fixed.
  • Setting that made undroppable cards still droppable has been corrected. Cards that should not have dropped have been removed.
  • Refine rates now match official rates
  • Fixed a bug at the bio4 reward guy that would delete materials when you cancelled.
  • Costume Vending Machine should now be corrected to not give items sold by npcs or dropped by mobs. Costumes that come from quests will still be obtainable.
  • Daily BG Quest has received a bug fix and qol update. It will no longer be possible to claim the reward by all your characters that have the quest after completing with one character. Your win count will no longer be reset by picking up the quest on a new character, instead being reset on quest turn in.
  • New room added to the BG/PVP warper called Damage Testing. This has copies of the dummies in Prontera, without town restrictions that prevent using skills like SG. PVP is not enabled in this room.
  • Costumes from HTF cannot be turned in for Costume Gemstones.
  • The Bulk Tool Dealer in the Adventurers Group has a sell option that actually works now. He doesn't want to buy your stuff, just walk out into Prontera.
  • Refining was disabled in the PT hubs. The shop will now auto-refine items. Non-pt items that were refined using this refiner have already been dealt with.
  • Improved Bongun and Munak hats can be refined!
  • Demon God Essences will be treated like cards at the decarder npcs.
  • WoE Stats fixes have been implemented. Guilds are properly saving and things like top damage will actually get tracked now.
  • We discovered a potential elo bug and have added some code to correct it.
  • More updates for Old Glast Heim because this script loves to be buggy! Correct reward amounts will be given in treasure room in normal mode. Commanders respawning is an official mechanic and will be staying. They spawn randomly on mob kills on their designated side of the map. We have updated the script so that if they have not spawned after 70 mob kills on their side, they will be force spawned. This only happens one time per side.
  • More new hats have snuck into the costume vending machine.
Vintage Only
  • Peuz combo only boosts Spear Boomerang by 50% instead of 100%
  • Krishna+Sin Gloves boost Sonic Blow by 10% instead of 50%
  • Horror Toy Factory enchanting will not remove refines. This enchant can still fail, but only coins are lost.

  • WoE Info signs have gotten some recoding.
  • Costume Vending Machine should no longer give out hats that are dropped by monsters or sold by NPC. May still give hats obtained via quest. If this makes you extra salty because you have those kinds of costumes, make a support ticket. This update did not appear to work as planned. Next patch will correct this issue. Please go ahead and continue to make support tickets if desired.
  • Useless event coupons have been removed from Santa Porings. Existing coupons can be kept for personal reasons?

  • Item refunds have been processed for biolabs items. You should get them when you log any character provided you have inventory space.
  • OGH and OGH-H have received some edits. This should reduce the amount of chat time.
  • Temporals enchanter will no longer eat the refine on your final enchant.
  • Bug with Daily BG quest has been fixed. This has already been loaded on Vintage.

  • Coagulated Spell added for 1 BGVP each, Bloody Branch cost changed to 5 BGVP
  • Horror Toy Factory requirements for every item (besides Kimi's Ribbon) have been reduced to 1/10 of before. Treasures from the MVP will now give 10 times as many Bloody Coins as before.
  • Blacksmith Party buffs now always have the full duration because.. well, it seemed kind at the time because I was touching the code to make it so that...
  • A heap of party targeting skills should now process on BG allies, including: Angelus, Magnificat, Gloria, Wind Walk, Adrenaline Rushes, Weapon Perfection, Overthrust, (and now the renewal list) Clementia, Cantocandidus, Praefitio, Coluceo Heal (bonus caps at 12 members only, just like Kihop or a normal party ), Lauda Agnus, Lauda Ramus, Frigg's Song, Swing Dance, Moonlight Serenade, Symphony of Lover, Windmill Rush, Echo Song, Elemental Shield, Hissing, Shrimp Bunch, Purring, Shrimp Party, and ... ugh, Meowmeow.

  • The Hidden Enchanter dialogue is now more descriptive about how Enchanting Coupons work.
  • A bug in Horror Toy Factory dropping equips in a stack has been fixed.

  • Double equipping of RWC Memory Knife has been blocked.
  • Mora enchants for HW and HP will keep refines and refine bonuses.
Modern Only
  • Dragon Breath, Dragon Breath Water, and Hell Plant should all have delays matching their animations now. Note that animation cancelling isn't quite right (yet) when being damaged by multihit skills like Comet (should be ready for next patch).
  • Hell Plant was changed to have a minimum cast time of 1 ms, because gravity made it one of those skills that didn't animate the char at instantcast for.. some reason
  • Dragon Breath and Dragon Breath Water will not be boosted by Magnum Break damage bonus
  • A maximum duration of 20s has been added to several 3rd Class statuses. These include Thorn Trap, Melon Bomb, GX Poisons, Illusion Doping, Masquerades, Strip Accessory, Harmonize, Voice of Siren, Marsh of Abyss, Crystallize, and Deep Sleep
