ObsidianRO Patch 1.7

by ObsidianRO Team on 2018-05-10

NOTE: We have revised the WoE schedule for this week Wednesday's 9PM-10PM WoE timeslot. It will now only be 1 castle schg_cas02 (Andlangr) until further notice.

Greetings ObsidianRO Players,

Patch 1.7 drops tonight and we have some exciting information to share with you about the patch. There are a few systems that we're adding, as well as numerous other things being changed that we'd like to go over. Please tell your guild members about the new patch, inactive or active, tell your friends, and remember to keep voting and review us on RateMyServer! View the full patch notes at the end of the post.

MVP Trials

The MVP Trials is a new system, completely exclusive to ObsidianRO where you can fight MVPs daily. These are guaranteed MVPs that are available to your account every 24 hours. Visit BigBoss Braveheart in St. Capitolina Abbey to find out what your daily MVP selection is. Below are the details of hjow the system works, and we're happy to be working with players in a Bug Bounty System that will reward players for being the first to report a specific issue about the MVP Trials instance based on severity. Please report any issues you encounter and be rewarded appropriately!

Details:

  • Players above level 175 can participate in the MVP Trials instance
  • Once per day (starting every 24 hours from the first time you speak to the NPC) players will be able to pick from a list of 4 MVPs to fight
  • You may choose one MVP per character per account until all MVPs in the list are gone
  • You may party up to kill an MVP, but anyone assisting you will start their 24 hour cooldown and be unable to do their own MVP trial for that day on that particular character
  • Drops function as normal drops do for MVPs, they do not go to immediately the party leader or the person who created the instance. They will drop on the floor if you do not have autoloot on.
  • You will be unable to assist another player if your character is on cooldown from either your own instance or helping another player
  • There is a small chance to generate a Rare MVP spawn (or two), and an even lower chance to generate a single Legendary MVP spawn 
  • If you cannot kill the MVP on your own after making a solo instance, you may party up and the MVP Trial NPC will instruct you to upgrade your instance to support party members
  • Quitting the party if the instance was created as a party will result in a lost instance and your character will go on cooldown.
  • Going over the idle timeout (not entering the instance for 30 minutes) after generating it will result in a lost instance and your character will go on cooldown.

Rideword Hat and Gentleman's Pipe Quests

  

We've created custom quests for these two headgears in particular. Please visit Head Gentleman Thomas in the Rekenber Corproation Headquarters located in Lighthalzen to begin the quest for Gentleman's Pipe. 

In order to start the Rideword quest, you should seek out the Clock Tower Bookkeeper located next to the clock tower in Aldebaran.

Quest Shop for Headgears & Costumes

We've implemented a quest shop system for some custom and slotted headgears which can be found in the main town of St. Capitolina Abbey. The quest shop will display 0z cost to attempt to buy the item, but will then require you to also trade in some items in addition to a real Zeny cost. Check out Jonathan and Alexis to the left of the main area for more information on previewing the item and view their purchasing requirements!

An additional NPC to the right of the Main town area will sell you costume headgears for Obsinite Coins! Make sure you check out Daenerys.

Class Consumable Shops

To help with some of the pains that come with playing some of the classes, we've made it easier to get materials to craft your class consumables, and in some cases gave you the requirements to make them. Check out the class consumable NPC shops to the left of the main area in St. Capitolina Abbey to see what's in stock for your class!

Guild Changes

From the beginning of the server, we've been closely monitoring how guilds work on ObsidianRO. We've made some mistakes but feel like we're now going in the right direction with WoE and rewarding guilds appropriately. In an upcoming patch, we'd like to add some guild participation incentives and reward guilds better for participating in WoE. For this patch, we're adding a few things, but also making some changes to the max guild capacity. See below for more details:

  • Max skill level for Guild Extension is reduced to level 6, and max guild cap is reduced to 52
  • There is now a limit to the number of guild castles a single guild can hold: 4
  • WoE2 will be starting on Monday May 14, 2018 and WoE in general will follow a new schedule with some new castles starting on that day and forward.

Monday

  • [WoE1] 9AM until 10AM PST: 2 castles available
    • prtg_cas04 (Skoegul)
    • payg_cas03 (Holy Shadow)

Wednesday

  • [WoE2] 9PM until 10PM PST: 2 castles available
    • schg_cas02 (Andlangr)

Saturday

  • [WoE1 and WoE2] 12PM (noon) until 2PM PST: 2 castles available
    • [WoE1] aldeg_cas01 (Neuschwanstein)
    • [WoE2] arug_cas03 (Horn)

Whitesmith/Creator Changes

We're always looking at how classes compare to other classes in both PVP and PVE and we want to share with you the upcoming Whitesmith changes that we hope will be a move in the right direction. 

  • Cart Termination now does 20% additional damage against players
  • Learning Potion heal effectiveness now scales at 7*SkillLv% from 5*SkillLv%
  • Potion Pitcher heal effectiveness now scales at 15% per skill level from 10%.
  • Hilt Binding now grants +5 Str and +15 Atk up from +1 Str and +4 Atk
  • Loud Exclamation (and all items and other things that grant Loud Exclamation) now grants +10 Str up from +4 Str
  • Cart Boost can no longer be cancelled by Decrease AGI/Quagmire

What's in the works?

Lots of things, actually. We want to add a lot more PVP content, because at the hear of ObsidianRO< we are a dedicated PVP server. We want you guys to see leaderboards, be rewarded, and rise to the top ranks. We have something special in mind for this Leaderboard system and hopefully we can deliver on it really soon.

We also want to implement a spinoff of the famous CEDI MVP system. Unfortunately, that system is pretty specific to some other Private servers, so we're making our own from the ground up. This will be extremely endgame content, but I believe the direction we're going we need to add more endgame content very quickly, so that's our focus.

We also know that you guys really love to look Kawaii, so we're going to be focusing a lot of attention on costumes and how your character looks. Check back next week for more information on what we have in store for that.

Lastly, we're going to be adding in a lot more customs and adjusting some of the current customs in game. We have a really awesome endgame quest that we're preparing right now, with entirely exclusive to ObsidianRO headgears made by GM Deafen.

New Website, Vote4Points, Updated WoE Times

by ObsidianRO Team on 2018-04-27

Hello ObsidianRO players,

Today I'm bringing news about some critical updates to the server, as well as what we're planning on doing going forward with player population. There are a few things that we've been striving for since day one, but have only just recently begun to roll out.

The New Website & Voting

Some of you may have noticed that https://obsidianro.com has had a makeover! Thanks to GM Deafen for providing the mockup, layout, and all the assets. We've slowly been working away at getting the website up for a couple weeks and today we've finally launched it. It will get a lot more updates as time goes on, but for now it helps with some of our immediate plans.

We've also started our advertisement campaign on various popular top ranking websites. If you don't already know, we've also added a "Vote4Points" mechanism to the server, which will award you points for clicking on the vote buttons. You can find those on the right-side nav bar after logging in or clicking here. We encourage you to vote as often as possible, and invite your friends to play as well, and you can feel good doing it linking them to a real website!

Vote4Points

The way this works is fairly simple. You click on the vote logos on the above page, get redirected to the corresponding vote site, you vote for us and you receive 1 credit on your account for doing so per vote site. In game, there is a new NPC that will convert your credits into Obsinite Coins at a rate of 3:1. Essentially, vote for all 3 of the current vote sites and receive 1 Obsinite Coin every 12 hours.

Voting helps us in a lot of ways and we encourage you guys to do so every 12 hours. This will ensure we climb the rankins and take in more players. We hope that this system will help grow the server population in time.

WoE Schedule Change for Saturday WoE

We've heard a lot of your feedback regarding WoE on Saturday and we're going to try a different time for it. Instead of 11AM-12PM PST it will be moving to 2PM-3PM PST. We're attempting to accommodate most of NA and Europe in this WoE but we realize that we cannot satisfy everyone. We hope this will be enough to help that in some way. Please keep sending us your feedback.
