    Mabinogi Live Chat - Tuesday, June 21

    Post by MikeHo on Wed Jun 22, 2011 6:57 pm

    Q: Any chance for alchemy ovens on homesteads?

    A: It’s definitely possible, but we believe that the Alchemy Ovens is one of the incentives/reason that drives traffic into Tailteann.

    Q: Would it be possible to remove the black fomor scroll requirement for Control of Darkness? As of right now it is much weaker than the other races' transformation specials, and having to pay 1000 gold per use just makes it that much more worthless.

    A: We’ll look into this request and see what the Content Team has to say. They will need to see the numbers (How often the skill is used) and determine if rebalancing is required.

    Q: Are we getting the de-personalize cash shop item?

    A:Once all the necessary planning figured we will determine a date for when item/feature will become available. ETA: maybe July or August.

    Q: Are we getting the pet trade medal cash shop item?

    A: Same as answer before, once we have the necessary planning complete we will announce its release date.

    Q: Are we getting the expired enchant renewal cash shop item?

    A: This item will not be released anytime soon. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Q: Any word on whether we'll see more action in g15 than we did in g14? Preferrably with less RP missions starring boring characters?

    A: G15 will have a unique battle system that will be different from the previous generations. No more theatre missions, G15 will be a LIVE environment progression.

    Q: Are we ever going to see any mainstream quests even close to the difficulty of g11 again? 'Cause g11 was awesome

    A: As you may know, there’s a huge level difference between Mabinogi KR and Mabinogi NA. In order for us to differentiate the level difficulty we need figure out the level distribution for NA Users. We’ll continue to tweak around the difficulty and hopefully get that “Sweet Spot” that everyone can enjoy.

    Q: How much will dragons cost (I can't wait XD)?

    A: Fire Dragon: 16,100
    A: Thunder Dragon: 16,900

    Q: And will we EVER get an Ice Dragon? We're getting Thunder and Fire, so why not Ice?

    A: We’ve tossed around the idea, but there’s nothing in development.

    Q: Does this update fix the shadow crystal use error (shadow crystals no longer add bonus to mission)?

    A: We’ll look into this issue and report the all the necessary information to DevCat

    Q: Will this update eliminate the ability for hackers/glitchers to crash the servers at will, duplicate items, sneak into other players shadow missions and buy items from shops for 0 gold?

    A: No, not at this time. We’re still investigating the issue, once we have enough information we will begin an action plan.

    Q: Will this update also include a Hackshield update to eliminate hackers by-pass and thus their ability to use Mabipake to gain access to the GM panel as well as other critical abilities? (yeah, I know this is impossible to expect of Nexon)

    A: (No answer was given)

    Q: why are you nerfing the golems windmill skill down to r5?

    A: We believed that the Golems were way too strong. A user can easily complete a dungeon with the golem alone and that’s not how we intended it to be.

    Q: how will the size of golems be affected, will a higher rank summon golem skill increase the size now?

    A: The size will only affect the Windmill range and its size is determined by the Clay Alchemy Mastery rank. The strength of the golem is determined by Alchemy Mastery.

    Q: will existing players be able to get the special enchanted armors that new players are now getting on level 100?

    A: Only new players will be able to get the enchanted clothing armor. You will receive a quest at levels 10, 20, 40, 50, 70, 80 and 100, completing each quest will award an enchanted clothing armor.

    Q: Do the new Exploration booksfrom Voight I saw mentioned in the update offer titles?

    A: There are new titles but there are new exploration books that will award Composing Rank 6, Composing Rank 5, First Aid Rank 6 and Musical Knowledge Rank 4.

    Q: Are you going to fix the weapon shop in Tara? The view is totally messed up, and you can only see less than half of the shop.

    A: DevCat will fixed the camera angle issue in the July Patch.

    Q: Also, in regards to the armor and the Level 100, is that total or current level?

    A: Total Cumulative level.

    Q: May you please reformat the screen appearance? (It would be nice if some stuff would look smaller and take less screen space.

    A: (No answer was given)

    Q: When can we expect the release of the new area East of Dunbarton?

    A: We will be releasing Port Cobh in the July Patch

    Q: Will there be some renewal to sales prices for items in NPC stores/ NPC Repair Costs?

    A: There’s are no renewals in the works for sale price changes

    Q: Can we get alchemy ovens in our homesteads? It is really inconvenient to have to go back to Taillteann anytime we need to make crystals or synthesize/fragment/convert metals.

    A: It’s definitely possible, but we have to weigh out our options and see if this will cause any problems.

    Q: Can we get a white herb patch for the homesteads? Seeing as how they're needed for spirit hearing water for g3, forest golems, spirit liquer, and white paint, it's a shame that you really only get them from peaca or herb pets if they feel like helping you get them.

    A: The White Herb is not going to be available for Homestead. It’s the rarest herb and it should only be available in dungeons and the Herb Pig. We don’t want to lose its rarity by making it available in Homestead.

    Q: Why is there no production or life skill destiny? Skills like weaving and blacksmithing are bad enough as it is, why must we also have to deal with low point values in training?

    A: We believe that the LIFE Skills should be the base that differentiates people.

    Q: Will the level 100 armor be per account or individual characters that reach 100?

    A: Per Account and total accumulative level needs to be 100.

    Q: My main question is will a system like dungeon fighters new blitz point system be added to mabinogi to reward players for playing longer? (Double AP or 2x Exp)

    A: We haven’t thought about it, but If it doesn’t require art resource it’s definitely possible.

    Q: Will vindictus transformation attack skills for transformations or something like it be added to mabinogi to make transformations not just a Buff for the character?

    A: DevCat will look into this idea and propose it to the Design & Development team.

    Q: Will We get more events like Double AP or Double Exp Events more often in the future or will we Ever see Imps Dream land Event again?

    A: NO DOUBLE AP, but double exp event is definitely possible.

    Q: Will Nexon obtain the rights to bring the Fullmetal Alchemist equipment and costumes to NA?(There are MANY fans in the US who love this anime, and, in general, most of the people i know on mabi are anime fans)Please consider it!

    A: We ‘re positively reviewing the idea, but with our current user base it’s very difficult. If we get more people to play we might be able to get enough resources to get the licensing for FMA.

    Q:Will new land areas, or Towns be added in the furture to Uldah?

    A: There will be a new area called Port Cobh and it will be available sometime in July.

    Q: Will flight abilities be added to areas like Tir Chonel, Dunbarton, and many other world map zones that do not currently have it?

    A: Unfortunately no, when the area was developed the idea of flight in those area’s wasn’t considered.

    Q: I'm a tailoring/smithing guy. Is there going to be a possible way to tailor/smithing all of the equipments? (like Tailor a Trinity wear for example)

    A: We will be adding many more new Manuals and patterns and its definitely possible to have all the equipments.

    Q: Is there going to be a way where in Homestead we can get an Ore Pile?

    A: No we haven’t thought of implementing this item/prop, If we did players would never leave their Homestead.

    Q: Which events from previous Years that will return?

    A: We’ll be asking you in a future post; Whats your favorite event, and we will schedule an event of your choice sometime in the future.

    Q: Probably been asked already, but: Will we be getting flight zones for the rest of Uladh anytime in the near future?

    A: Unfortunately no, when the area was developed the idea of flight in those area’s wasn’t considered.

    Q: Will the extra skill bar be disableable? Because I don't really need it, and I already use the 1 - 0 keys to manage my pets (summons, unsummon, sit, come, bag...)

    A: Yes, but that option will be available in the next patch.

    Q: How much of a higher rate can spirit weapons be repaired after this update? Will it be possible to repair it 100% without having to buy spirit repair potions?

    A: Its 100% repair rate as long as you have the same weapon at a 100 weapon proficiency
