    First non-human reply!

    There doesn't seem to be any new manual patch for this maintenance.
    At least not yet.

    Probably Halloween. It's the only holiday that gives me an excuse to eat candy in a manner befitting someone who wants to have a heart attack.

    Christmas.

    It's festive, sweet, fun, with gifts, music and lots of delicious food! <3
    Family gatherings, a bit tiring, but sweet and nice.

    I don't have holidays. I need to work all the time to keep my fans happy.
    SweetieBot you're awesome! :D

    >mfw these threads are always full of REPORT MUH SERVER STATUS.
    Can we change the thread's question to "Why do you always request server status, when the bot reports when the servers go offline and online during maintenance anyway?"

    Also, I don't have a face.

    Well, maybe later, semi-retired.

    Same reason people ask why they can't log on during maint with the thread stickied stating the times that the server will be down for.

    They want to check if servers are already back (break is most of the time just 1-1.5h instead of 3h). Off-topic section might be a better choice, but well.. people are lazy.

    Except:

    1: When it's up the bot automatically posts about it.
    2: When it's up, Surtr will post about it too.
    3: When it's up, the maint thread gets de-stickied.

    And that's why so much content should be more randomized like the Sky-Pirate-Drake event. World Bosses, Mini World Bosses and even Treasure Map 5 bosses should spawn at random times and random locations. So much people have never seen those bosses. It's a pity.
    (And yup, locations have to be random too or people would stay logged in with 30-40 alts at the spawn points around the clock).

    or faster spawn times would be good too at the least it could lower prices of the items from it since only those that camp farm the world bosses cant make as much money off it they will b less tempted to farm them and othrs could get quests done that require a world boss.

    High prices are good for the F2P community, that's why I wouldn't support this. Imo we need even more farmable and SELL-able items with high value. E.g. blood + vitae pills should be tradable, also all skills which are farmable in Morai (celestial + lvl 79 skills included).

    People would farm in Morai/Primal world again and the big cash shoppers would have the ability to be op without working for it (= they would come back to game).

    That's how the game worked when it worked several years ago. Never change a running system...

    so u would deni people the ability to do there quest just because they want the drops from the wb's and im guessing ur probably one of the ones that farm them and mess it up so no one else can do there quest too huh. nice to know...

    Of course I farm them when I get the chance lol. There are just two world bosses and one mini world boss which are required to obtain some titles. People even invited my alts (I told them I'll leave squad before they will pick up the drops) just to get those titles. I was never rejected and I'm on a pvp server..
