Hello, fellow Fiestans,

It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What can you look forward to after tonight's maintenance?

 

Well, the taverns in Isya have been full of adventurers with stories of their quests to find the elusive Dark Nepilim, yet very few could actually find this monster. After hearing these stories, a small group of magicians left for the Adealian lands. They cast a spell over the land which forced all Dark Nepilims to stay rooted to the spot they were born at. Now the adventurers can find these creatures and fulfill their quest at long last.
 

As a side effect of the spell, adventurers who were still under level 60 received an opposite benefit. They suddenly found their movement no longer restricted, and auto-move once again worked when moving between quest objectives and map landmarks. Speaking of moving, however, be careful should you face Helga again, as certain tricks may no longer work! Safe travels to you, Isyans!

 

To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting at 10:00pm PDT, and the maintenance has an estimated completion time of 1:00am PDT, for a total of 3 hours.  Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later).
 

Additionally, the Fiesta Social server will be restarted at 9:30pm PDT, but it is expected to be back up and running in time to play during Fiesta classic's maintenance. Come play Hide & Seek with the GMs in Fiesta Social while the other servers are still down. Isya's always open somewhere!


Changes

- Added level 115 upgrade for Bash (Holy Knight) skill
- Changed Dark Nepilim's behavior so that it does not roam

 

Misc

- Implemented April premium items
- Began process of moving furniture items from premium store to in-game shops

 

Error and Bugs

- Fixed Auto Move for all eligible levels (1-60)
- Fixed an exploit related to kiting the Helga boss

We'll see you after the patch, Isyans!

The Misadventures of the Fiesta GMs - Part 3

Hours went by looping around in this giant maze without any progress until Velfarre and Wishbone arrived at a dead end and their hopes were up. Velfarre and Wishbone sat with their backs against the wall trying to figure out what their next move and all of a sudden, they saw Lightburb sprinting towards them. Quickly the both of them got to their feet, unsure of what was about to turn that corner.

Lightburb, completely out of breath managed to blurt out the words, get ready to fight. Velfarre and Wishbone looked up to see an angry giant curry bowl monster running towards them. What made things worse was Kobal was sitting on top of the monster with an evil, meniacal, grin on his face. The three GMs knew they were in for a fight and prepared themselves for battle.

Wishbone casted a Magic Blast as Velfarre launched a wall of arrows when all of a sudden a great white flash of light brightened the skies and blinded everyone in the maze.

March 27th, 2012

Hello, fellow Fiestans,

It's time once again for our weekly server maintenance! What will be happening tonight?

During all their time in Isya, the GMs have done a lot of running back and forth, doing various tasks and searching for things by themselves. Sometimes the experience they gained seemed appropriate, and sometimes it seemed like it could use some tweaking. The goddess Teva saw this and decided to make an attempt at improving the experience for adventurers who venture forth alone. This change will help lone Isyans in their fight to prevent Legel's resurrection!

To prepare for this maintenance, the servers will be shutting down starting at 10:00pm PDT, and the maintenance has an estimated completion time of 1:00am PDT, for a total of 3 hours.  Check the server announcements located in the Fiesta forums for updates in case the process is completed any sooner (or later).

 

Changes

- Tweaked the experience gained while hunting solo (not in a party)

- If you are 1 level higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 20%.

- If you are 2 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 25%.

- If you are 3 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 45%.

- If you are 4 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 45%.

- If you are 5 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 45%.

- If you are 6 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 35%.

- If you are 7 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 25%.

- If you are 8 levels higher than the monster, the EXP gained has been increased 10%. 

 

Errors and Bugs
 
- Fixed description error on Glory Silver Ring item
 
- Fixed text errors on some level 110 & 111 quests
 

We'll see you after the patch, Isyans!

 

 

The weekend is here, Isyans! Here's the lowdown for this weekend in Fiesta:

The Misadventures of the Fiesta GMs: Part 2

What kind of twists will GM Velfarre bring to the story this time? Let's find out!

(New to the story? Read Part 1 here.)

Velfarre and Wishbone woke up from their curry trance several hours later. They looked at around, realizing they were no longer at Outspark HQ. Kobal was also nowhere to be seen. They were now alone in an unfamiliar place; what were they going to do?

After a quick investigation, the two GMs realized that Kobal had thrown them into a giant maze. The pair came across several locked doors, each of which would only open after passing a task or solving a puzzle. After a few of these doors, Wishbone quickly realized, "Hey, the key to unlocking all of these is curry!" Was this how Kobal planned to bring them to the dark side?

Velfarre began searching for a quicker way out of the maze - one that DIDN'T involve curry...

The OSKI: My Cardz, Let Me Show You Them

Hello, fellow Fiestans,

What happened during last night's maintenance?

Well, it seems that the wacky scientists in the Secret Lab have been at it again. They were experimenting with unleashing the full power of different monsters and decided that it was finally time for a real test. They captured a giant slime named Purple Durple that was last seen sitting in Elderine and used it for research.

When the time came for the test run, they aimed the Unleashing Beam at the slime and... it backfired. The beam was caught inside Purple Durple, bouncing all around and getting refracted a million times over. The energy built up and eventually shot out of the slime in a shockwave that swept through all of Isya. Instead of unlocking the monsters' inner power, it had the reverse effect; they became trapped inside cards!

When adventurers from the cities discovered this phenomenon, they set out to gather all of the different cards. Nobody knows yet exactly how many there are, but whispers of rewards for those who collect certain cards have been floating around Isya. Help us discover new cards and unravel the mysteries they hold!

 

Changes
 

- Implemented the Card Collection System

- Monsters will sometimes drop a special, collectible card of varying rarities. Gather as many as you can for secret rewards!

- The number of Dark Nepilim monsters has been increased from 2 to 5 on the Adealia map.

- The requirement for the "Collecting Twister Crystals" quest has been decreased from 20 crystals to 10. The drop rate for this quest item has also been increased.

 

Errors and Bugs
 

- Level 65 blue drops now appear in Crystal Castle reward chests (1st attempt at fix; still under investigation).

- The correct monsters now drop the quest item for "The Gradual Unfolding of the Truth" quest.

- Background music now correctly loops on the Adealia map

- The damage relect buff for Helga Hard Mode now instantly disappears after killing the Karasian Illusionists/Magicians (instead of lasting 10-20 seconds).

- Various fixes implemented for unreleased premium items & Anniversary Balloons

- Errors fixed in Snowman Cap, Furry Lion Hat, Mini Penguin, Draotter and Cupid's Arrow item descriptions

- Sound replaced for Draotter & Ottergon mounts

 

We'll see you in Isya!
