You might want to check the times you posted, because it doesn't match with the downtime.

Thanks for the update!

For a maintenance that is 1 day later than usual, can you explain why it starts 3-4h later than usual??

With the downtime of the servers and add the very probable extra hours of extension to the update, in Europe we can expect the servers to go online sometime early Friday morning?...

I do not believe it was adjusted. If it was, it would be in the patch notes. :x

I noticed that myself. It is starting 2 hours later than our usual time. This is probably due to the atypical maintenance week, our maintenance team have to work double maintenance shift.

Korea has a different XP curve then us for a while now so if this update puts us on the same curve as them it's all good..

I wouldn't be surprised if its in your files and not mentioned which is why I asked, if you have time and are able to tell us how much XP it takes to gain 1% at level 105 on your internal test server that would be great. If this still isn't changed you will see more players bleed out of this game out of boredom. People hit 105 and quit or become inactive. Seen it dozens of times now. I have a glimpse of hope seeing top PvP players in Russian PvP videos XP bars moving since the update last Wednesday in Russia but who knows. People want to see progression outside of spending $$$ and that's what XP provides. Currently it just isn't feasible to hit 106, I won't even mention 107 and on. It also provides more opportunities for PvP to prevent burn out and boredom from none of this happening which is causing a lot of heavy spenders to quit your game. If this isn't in the patch then Neutron needs to revisit this topic and make a big push for it with his Korean counterparts.. Korea received this change on GC.

Do you have any idea how hard it was to level a Dominator without any type of clan help except myself!? Then y’all go and screw the class with this update. I really hope I read it wrong. Can anyone help clarify?

Thank you.

I think you have it all wrong. The flag cost only SP to learn/5 Spirit ores to use.

You yourself just complained how hard it was to lvl since you had to do it alone, but now you will be able to join any kind of party.

PS: i think dominator clan buffs were the most annoying feature, especially during sieges. When they try to buff their own party, they **** up the buffs of all the parties around them.

Also, it looks like they’re combining melodies, combining resistances, and combining sonatas. How will we be compensated for our individually enchanted buffs? All of mine are +10/11. Do we get a mass of immortal books?

The dominator doesn't get the combined ones.It is different skill from the actual single buffs, it just allows you with 1 button to buff all 4 melodies/3 sonata/3 resists at the same time.

PS: enchanting melodies, resistances and harmonies is such a waste of adena...

Someone also just said they think the flag is to auto buff clan members during sieges etc, so that dominators can move around rather than being tied to one place doing only buffs. And clan members should be honored to get my buffs! All of mine are +10 time, and +11 sonatas. They should be so lucky lol.

I also have a 101 heirophant. And 99 doomcryer. That’s why I was asking about the combined buffs.

My doubt regarding the Daily Coins,
In fact they will be deleted? Or will your use be irrelevant?

I'm not sure if the Daily Coins were deleted in the other overseas territories a.k.a Innova, but the NPC to exchange Daily Coins for items at overseas regions is no longer there.

Please, check it out asap!!
