The FIONA Weekly: March 6, 2013

Quoted

The FONA Weekly: March 6, 2013
Greetings, Isyans!

It's been some time since the last OSKI, and we missed it, too! Going forward, it will now be called the FONA Weekly (for Fiesta Online North America)!
As an added touch, it's even written in Times New Roumen.

The GMs have been busy unpacking all their boxes since the big move and are finally feeling settled in to their new home. Velfarre just finished installing laser lights in his room, which now looks like a full-out disco/night club. The door to Kobal's room has been locked tight for the past week. Nobody can get inside, but the heavy odor of curry continues to leak out. Down another hallway is Lightburb's room, which is basically... a sea of pink. SO, SO PINK. We'd post a picture, but it would blind you with its pinkness.

The group was sitting in the new HQ, sipping some hot chocolate (with full-sized marshmallows, of course) when the doorbell rang. When they opened it, they found a strapping young lad holding a present. They didn't recognize him, but he had that certain glow around him that only another GM could have. He introduced himself as Talon, hailing from a parallel universe version of Isya where people spelled "favorite" and "color" as "favourite" and "colour."

He had been investigating the rift in space-time that opened up in Dark Passage II when he somehow got pulled through. The GMs have seen weirder things happen (see: Kobal's room), so they just shrugged and welcomed him inside. During his travels, he'd heard that, for some reason, flower petals were hard to come by, so his present box was full of petals of every color. How thoughtful! Say hi to Talon if you see him on the forums! Note: if you check out that gate for yourself, you won't leave your local Isya, but you'll end up in...

The newest instance dungeon, the Devil Mine! It's now here for you to explore! This dungeon is available for players level 40-50 and introduces the Foras Tribe plus some awesome-looking monsters!
Don't have a character currently eligible for Devil Mine? There's still a lot to like in this patch!

Tonight's maintenance will begin at 10pm PST (6-Mar). Here are the full notes for this week's patch:

Changes:
- Added Devil Mine instance dungeon for levels 40-50 - includes 10 quests (1 repeatable); pick them up in Elderine
- Added new level 80 accessory rewards for Devildom Territory
- Changed alchemy stone prices to in-game gold instead of Fame
- Added Adealia return scrolls
- Added level 114 named weapon drops to a range of monsters
- Made anti-kiting adjustments on some high-level bosses
- Increased damage of archer prestige skills (Arrow of the Sky & Bomb Arrow)

Miscellaneous:
- Valentine's follow-up event removed
- Implemented new Attendance Event rewards

Bugs & Error Fixes:
- Fixed a bug in which Freezing Ice could be removed from the KQ

We'll also be opening up recruitment here on the forums for volunteer GM applications soon!
Stay tuned for that thread to pop up this week.

We'll see you after the patch!

Yes, the spelling in the title ("FONA") was on purpose. It's now un-officially named the Fiona (Thanks to Riko :3).

It said new, so most likely a newly created set. Hopefully blue, or set.

Making it easier for new players to reach high lvs is fine IMO plus don't forget that a large portion of the SC using population are low lv perms.

I'm hoping the level requirement for Adealia Scrolls has been adjusted though. They were lv. 110 in the files when Adealia was added. Hopefully it was lowered to roughly 100.

Well before 110 you don't really need to go to Adelia so does it really matter?

tech it shouldn't be lowered to 100. 109 and below dont really have a purpose in ade. they have no quests there or even skills yet. so i think thye should be 110. if they wanted to go to ade that bad they could just mount there. it wont kill them.
