Talking New Glory Days Patch Launches Jan 23!

After Glory Days released in Korea a series of small patches called Echo Updates were made to the game, primarily to fix various issues and optimize recent changes. Many Echo Updates were included in the NCSOFT West launch of Glory Days, and most the rest are included here in the January 23, 2013 patch to the Glory Days game version. Check the server maintenance notice for more details on what's going on that day.

Patch Notes
View the January 23 patch notes here. These are posted as a new page in the Glory Days patch notes section of the website.

FYI, this version has been tested on Windows 8 machines and works with no issues.

Known Issues
Please note there are a few known issues with this update. These should be fixed (fully applied) in the future.

The following patch notes are currently not working:
  • Dr. Chaos' three feline raid bosses.
  • Othell Rogue: Changes to the Maximum Critical skill and stages, and the Block Magic, and Weakness Critical skills.
  • Tyrr Warrior: Changes to the Power Bomber, Mega Strike, and Jump Attack skills.
  • The casting time decrease for Scroll of Resurrection and Blessed Scroll of Resurrection.
  • The bug fix for Feoh Wizard's using Feoh Aura with Double Casting.
  • The Birthday Vitality Potion being dimensional.
  • The new Instance Zone button in the Actions menu.

Hi Sace,

Wasn't the option for toggling the cloak visual on your toon supposed to be in this patch? I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the patch notes.

Thanks for any clarification.

From the patch notes:
Quote:
  • Changes have been made so that characters above level 85 can also acquire the Newbie Helper’s buff skills.
What about characters that are levels 76 to 84? Are they still barred from getting Newbie Helper's buffs? Kinda weird to stop giving newbie buffs at level 76 then resume giving them at level 85+.

Or...was that intentional?

Great News!
I have one question, I see there that maximum critical, block magic and weakness will not work, btw:

Scorpion Poison: It is now a Passive skill.
Chain Blow: The skill effect now increases by 20% when an attacked character has Bleed status.
Blood Stab: The Bleed effect has increased.
Razor Rain: A Bleed effect has been added.
Dagger Explosion: The skill attack direction and range have changed from in front of the character to around the character.

All those skills will be working fine?

Good question; I'll ask the QA team. My assumption is that it will give Newbie Buffs to pretty much everyone now, but that's what we'll check on.

Those skills were passed as "working" by the QA team.

>>When a character levels-down to the point of passing the point where they would have gained a skill or skill level upgrade, the affected skill will be deleted or its level will be decreased accordingly. If the deleted or decreased skill is enhanced, the enhance effect will be reset.


Will this take place at the moment you die? or if I get up with regular/iss res /tap to town?

What about the removal of 3rd class skills on awakened toons that was promised in the last update?

I have two question:

How about BAIUM/QUEEN ANT/ORFEN (this boss) They will have a specific time to be born now?

"All regions that conduct raid boss battles now become battlefields when the raid boss appears. The areas reset to normal status when the raid boss leaves. If a raid boss is pulled out of their fight area by a certain distance, they disengage and respawn back at their original location. (It is not possible to pull raid bosses into towns or peace areas.)"

This is for epics?

Should we expect more updates like this one before Lindvior? Or the rest of the echo updates will be on the Lindvior update?

So.. if im 99/0.50% i will level down to 98 and i loss ALL my +10 enchanted skills from lvl 99?

If this is real... You know how many days take it to make 1% on lvl 99?
In conclusion... i need to exp 1%/week for loss it on a single PVP?

Or If i have 0.01 i dont level down?

TY.

this update is bad, i hope player backlash changes this because the new xp rule will hurt pvp a lot!

also why didn't skills from other classes get fixed their is a lot of skills that dont work on other classes. i think its better just to wait untill skills are fix for all classes then update the skills.

If you have skills only enchantable at 99 and you delevel from death, at that moment all those skills are unlearned and enchants are deleted, even if you get brez'd.

You have TWO WEEKS of 0% XP LOSS from the start of tomorrow. Get some XP brah.

Wrong. This does not apply to GoD Skills. The act of dying causing you to go from 99 -> 98 does the damage to your skills untraining/unenchanting them.

Brez'ing and getting the XP back does not restore the skill that was untrained and subsequently the enchant.

You will need the SP to train the skill again, and then re-enchant it.

Finally some patch with some sense into it. The best part is the lvl down change. This had to be ingame frim the launch of the GoD, but hey, better late then never. The only thing that worries me is the increased disarm rate, which is already too high, otherwise i really like the changes
