Listed below are responses to player questions submitted for March 2021.1. Players would like to know about the progress of plans to update Chrono Hunt availability/queue times.
The Chrono Hunt queue times can be dependent on player count, with fewer participants making the sessions more difficult to start. Unfortunately this was not a feature that could be easily changed on the backend. It was brought up in the past, but no changes are available with the current game version.2. On the subject of Chrono Hunt, the Dawnglory server is not able to properly participate in the Chrono Hunt event with other servers because the NPC spawns at different times for each server. A couple of solutions have been presented by the playerbase - move the timezone for Dawnglory so the NPC appears from 0-12 server time instead of 12-24 server time, OR move the timezone so the NPC appears at the same time for all servers (Dawnglory: 0-12, Tideswell: 9-21, Etherblade/Twilight Temple: 8-20)
Similar to the first answer, changes to the Chrono Hunt NPC would not be an easy change for the way it works with certain schedules. The idea of having the Dawn Glory NPC sync with spawn times for the other servers will be suggested though for a future update. Currently, it will still have to spawn during its usual times.3. Multiple players have gotten themselves locked in the Glacier City Mystery quest line where they are unable to trash and retake quests, thus preventing them from progressing any further. Upon investigation there are quests designed to fix these issues, however these quests can only be accessed with the help of customer support. So far, customer support has not been helpful on this.
The information for the extra quests in the Glacier City Mystery quest line will be forwarded for developer investigation. We're not sure how they'll be able to add it into the quest progression itself. Although we hope to have a more simple solution, such as being able to trash the quests at certain points to have a chance at receiving the require items or mobs to spawn again.4. When will the next TW map reset take place? Also will there be any new TW seasons?
The frequency of each Territory War reset is expected to be fewer, and would last longer than previous seasons. There is no upcoming reset dates for a new season yet, but that will be included in a news post once its decided and ready.5. Why were silver coins introduced and what is the rationale behind the change in BH/MBH bosses? In a game that is dying as it is, it doesn't help players want to continue their progress in the game if it is becoming much harder for new players to farm.
Silver coins were introduced long in the past from the 2019 content update. We are aware that some users were not in favor of bound currencies, but the silver coin would stay to help keep coin secured on their respective characters. As for the Bounty Hunter bosses, we don't have any feedback for its difficulty changes, but as players progress we would want for difficulty to scale so there is some challenge when going through the instances. If these bosses are causing problems for newer characters, balance changes will be considered in another content update.6. Will Arigora Colosseum (3v3/6v6) be with equalized gears again (like BoS) in the near future? The current arena doesn’t make it appealing to try and farm for g17 cape and ring, but if it is equalized that would make it a fun thing to do regularly.
We haven't heard of recent updates to equalize gear stats in the Arigora Colosseum. Higher level gears are still encouraged for users to try and obtain, so they are rewarded for their gameplay efforts. Although if having equal stat gears were liked by the community during PvP, we'll be checking if that can occur more often in the future.
I do plan to follow up on some of these subjects, especially since this was my first time submitting the player questions. I also plan on doing a poll for Arigora equal gears since some community feedback would be good.
In the meantime, if you do have any feedback or questions for future Q&As, feel free to post them here.Player Questions from November 2020
