Item requirements to become Page need to change... They require items from the 2 strongest mobs on the game. Seems a little unfair imo

Make a new banker NPC.
I hate the way you have to 'buy money'.

The banker should transfer the money into the denominations you wish (and can afford :P) automatically.

Other than that and the occasional debug, fun for the whole family!


[Edit]
I don't think the Page items are too hard at all, but I do think its unbalanced.
Knock down the drop-rates or change the requirements for the rest of the classes. I'm trying to become a Page which is harder than Apprentice, for a start I looted like 20 Beetle Shells from 60ish Beetles.

Its fun how it takes you a while to get a foot-hold. You don't just immediately become your chosen class, you have to earn it.

Just want to ask, is there more land coming out in the release or does there exist more than just Timari / Cordria / Arferniel / (forgot name)? It's pretty small as it is now judging by the 3 years spent on this game :p

We are all students or so, we go to school, have friends, hang out, get drunk, etc. I think we've gotten rather far for the other stuff we've done beside it. Besides, I doubt you explored everything.

And that said, a year ago we only had the Timar Valley. And since then the whole valley has been going through a change, and the new areas has been mapped. Considering that, I think we've done pretty well :)

IMHO, Apprentices are some-kind overpowered.
They can kill every single monsters at a very low level.
While me, a level 12 Page, with 15~20 skills ( str, slashing etc ), equiped with a Broad Sword, hardly HIT an ORC.
They kill Legionnaries, Giants everything else, and we can't even block those as we are hitted as much they are.

It'd take years to a Page kill a Giant on melee atm, it would require very good weapons and very good skills.
My friend is a ranger with 40 of ranged skill and he hardly hit an Orc Legionnarie :/

Thats just my OPNION, mages are kind of overpowered due for that, the wand :/

Let me tell something: If you can tame fire spells you're done in the game. I agree that spells should be stronger then melee fighting but com'on at least they should have some sort of limit to it's usage imo...

I got a question...
This is TS now and I'm wondering when it's gonna be a final release -actually,when game gonna start for real?
I won't level up till then for sure. I want to explore everything on my OWN later but don't want to waste my time now on TS :D
Aswell I hate bugs etc.

We cannot give you an exact date but we are doing our best right now to release it as soon as possible... maybe this year, maybe next year. We don't know.
Nevertheless we need you to understand that we do not want to hurry or rush to release a game that is not completely finished.

I'm off until the weapons are balanced.

My page has 26 hacking and 1 blunting.
With my short axe (atk 11 - 15, best axe in game :roll: ) I can kill a roe in one hit (28 hp) sometimes, not always. Sometimes.

With blunting 1 and a morning star (atk 18 - 21, best club in game) I could easily kill a warthog in one hit, a roe in one hit?!

I mean... Does the skills matters? And WHEN ist here going to be an axe ingame which is as good as the other ones!?

Skills matter for about (depending on your skill level) 0-90% of the damage.

All I have to say here is that you guys from staff are doing if not a perfect job, something really close to it !
It's wonderful the way you care about the Phobos Community, the time you take to answer all of us and help us in game when it's possible.

I'm loving Phobos even more because of you, keep going like that.

An amazed,
