    Skill Refund Evaluation

    <<Skill Refunding>> Welcome to the Skill Refunding section of your menu. In this topic you can remove unwanted skills from your character for a one time Col cost. All the Skill Points you invested into your skill will be refunded to your character, and can be reallocated freely. The prices for removing skills, as well as the template are listed below. In order to do this, players must post in this topic using the template provided below. When the transaction has been confirmed by a Player Support Team member, they will quote and approve the refund, and your points will be free to be redistributed. Abuse or exploitation of the system in ways it was not intended to be used will not be tolerated, and may result in both the Col and skill points being permanently deducted from your account. Rules on Skill/Mod Refunding: Players may only apply to refund a total of 50 SP once every 30 days (This can be split between multiple skills/mods). A skill can only be dropped as a whole. Example: Player A has Rank 5 Katana. Using the Skill Refunding System, they must drop the skill completely from R5 -> Unskilled. If Player X still wants to use a lower Rank of the skill, they must re-invest SP into the Katana skill afterwards. To remove a skill in which you have invested in any mods, these mods must also be removed. Example: Player A has Rank 5 Katana with the Katana Ferocity and Katana Finesse mods. If Player A wants to drop the Katana Skill, both the Ferocity and Finesse mods must also be removed. Col spent on Skill Refunding must be transferred from the player's Spending Account to the Banker. Unique Skills CANNOT be refunded. SP refunded with this method may not be re-invested into a Unique Skill. Refund Costs: There is a fixed Col/SP cost and the complete sum has to be calculated by the player. The actual Col that you need to pay can easily be calculated by multiplying the fixed Col/SP cost with the amount of SP that can get refunded Col/SP ratio = 1000 Col/SP Template: Skill(s) Being Dropped: <any skills being dropped here (include ranks)> Mod(s) Being Dropped: <any mods being dropped here (include ranks)> SP Refunded: <total SP being refunded> Cost: <total cost for SP refunded>

Requirements: Must explore an abandoned temple (3+ Posts) Defeat «Suterusu» At least 1 page of RP content (20+ Posts).

    Floor 19 «The Colossal Shadow» Recommended Level: 45 Non-Repeatable | Party Limit: 2 Credit Goes to: @Hikoru Rewards: 5,000 Col 3 SP Tanos Statue: A small statue [Uncommon Item] that can be placed in a home, proving that you defeated the Colossal Titan. When used, it gives +15 Mitigation for a thread.

Requirements: At least 1 page of RP content (20+ Posts). Must find «Colossus» with an LD of 15+. Must climb to weak points to attack (2 posts each). Must defeat «Colossus». Summary: Rumor has it that another giant beast-like Tanos has come alive on the 19th floor. He his twice the size of the floor boss, and is wandering the floor quietly towards each settlement, looking for someone to challenge him. Players have to find him wandering the plains, as although he is easy to find, the land is vast and treacherous, and the landscape seems to go for miles. Once he's found, you have to climb his body to the weak points on his hands and head to defeat the vast creature. Once defeated, he turns into a large pile of stone, forming a mountain of rock, as the sound of something large being shattered can be heard from a distance.

These can only be attacked up to three times before the weak point is gone, and you have to move onto the next one. If you miss attacking it, it will not count as using one of the three chances. [Note: To climb to a weak point, you must spend 2 Posts climbing to it, and this goes for every weak point] Oblivious: Since the boss is so large and you have to hold on and climb, players have no way to get space to «Charge» for extra damage, nor can they try to Stealth or Track the creature, as it does not care. Shake: Every three posts after the boss is found, «Colossus» will "shake" trying to get the player off of its body. Players have to grip onto the creature, rolling an LD to see how strong their grip is on the creature. The next post, «Colossus» will roll his own LD. If his LD is greater than the player, the player is thrown off, dealing 250 Unmitigatable damage to the player, and they have to restart their climb to the next Weak Point. [Note: LD items can come into effect when rolling, but no skills or mods that give an LD bonus can help]

    Floor Descriptions

    <<Floor 25>> Floor 25 is one of the most dangerous floor to be seen, the floor itself is one gigantic Labyrinth that goes out farther than what the eye can see. However the walls look old, a lot of them are cracked and appear to be made out of solid stone. NPC's in the Main Settlement of the floor warns players and hands pieces of chalk to players before heading out as it is said to get extremely lost in the labyrinths of the floor, and they had out chalk to give players so they have something to mark where they had gone and know how to get back to the main settlement. The lines players make through the chalk can only be seen by the user and players that are in the users party. NPC Inhabitants of this floor are mainly miners and blacksmiths, usually shown by the styles of their clothes. Miners are usually in protective clothes covered in a black soot, while blacksmiths are in hard-working clothes with heavy leather gloves and aprons to protect them from the heat of their hearths. Other people that live there wear common garbs, as this is no floor made for royals. Most women and children wear basic green clothing, while other people with jobs wear others to signify who they are. They are all friendly and helpful to those who dare venture out into the Labyrinth.  Unique Floor Rules: Main Settlement: <<Settlement of the Iron Fist>> Settlement of the Iron Fist is in the center of the floor and is one huge mountain civilization, and is run mostly by miners and blacksmiths. There are no other forms of civilization on this floor as the Labyrinths are build over any land that could possibly be used. And its said the only reason that there's civilization in this floor is because of the giant mountain in the center. The towns people are very bitter and straight to the point, they are very rude towards others and honestly really worry about themselves. However none of them dare step outside from the Main Settlement and into the giant Labyrinth. In the center of the Main Settlement a statue of a strong Minotaur can be found, however not many of the NPC's really know its purpose is as all the Monsters that roam the Labyrinth are Minotaur's and even Orc's so having a statue in the center of the floor seemed rather odd. However older NPC's say that the Minotaur statue is a entity named "Orgoth" and they had said that the entire Main Settlement of this floor was carved and crafted by him. However, mysteriously after he had successfully crafted a settlement, he had disappeared without a trace. Common Mobs Unique Locations « The Endless Maze » The rest of the main settlement, is one giant maze that stretches far than the eye can see and appears that there is no end to the maze itself. Not many actually know what is out there... if there actually is anything out there to begin with. Many parts of the Labyrinth are found to be layered with a heavy fog, making it hard to see anything that could be lurking within them. The Maze itself seems to shift every few minutes, always changing and never the same, making it hard for players to remember any certain ways the Labyrinth may be. Even though the Labyrinth constantly changes, many Minotaurs, Giants, and Dragons scout the maze and defend their territory. Before heading out into the "Endless Maze" a old man will hand the player some chalk so that way they can easily navigate back to the main settlement with no problems, but warns the player that they could potentially get lost out there if they don't purchase it. When out in "The Endless Maze" players must every post roll CD, if the roll die is 1-3 a player level minimum monster will come around a maze corner and engage the player(s). « Hearts of the Elder Dragons » Heart of Rhaegal, Zylara, Ghidorah, Icefyre, Tabaluga, Enywas, Draigoch, Dagahra, Smaug To find one of the "Hearts of the Elder Dragons" the player must roll LD 17+ to find one. (They may choose which pond they find.) There are 9 lakes total scattered throughout the maze. These area is a safe haven from the mobs that scout the maze outside, plants and even grass will grow in this area and in the pond in the center can even be fished to find fish or... chests that somehow end up there. Most of these places are good for rest stops for players who have been trekking in the maze and need time to recuperate their health and their energy levels to continue forward towards their adventure ahead of them. [Note, Players may only fish in ONE lake per thread] While traversing these nine lakes it is possible to spot a Prodigious Chest. These chests cannot be found anywhere else and are far more grand and decorated than other chests. When looting these chests you add X*Floor Col to your reward, 10 tier 3 materials, and increase the quality of all gear you find by one (cannot exceed perfect quality). [Chests can only be found by Fishing] Finding the Labyrinth: Finding the Labyrinth on Floor 25 requires a scouting party to reach a total of 150 LD in a scouting thread"

    [2.6.3] Patch Notes

    Mechanic Changes: Stealth: Players must roll to maintain Stealth at the beginning of their turn. If a player wishes to attack out of stealth they must roll to maintain stealth and attack in the same roll (declaring both in the purpose). If they failed to maintain stealth, they are considered detected and would lose any appropriate bonuses before their action is processed. Simplified Passive Stealth Detection rules (whenever the stealth roll falls below the passive stealth detection rating, stealth is considered broken and detected). Systems & Development Comments: We wanted to discourage Stealth from possibly being constantly re-rolled before combat in order to bypass Passive Stealth Detection. These changes should put more pressure on people who decide to use Stealth for their combat bonuses and should hopefully increase the first turn diversity. Skill Changes: Charge: Charge no longer caps Accuracy at 2 during Charge Attacks. Charge Attacks now have a -1 Accuracy debuff (e.g. someone with 5 Accuracy normally would have 4 Accuracy while using a Charge Attack). Hiding: Mod: Untraceable: New description: You've learned how to reduce evidence to your existence giving you the option to hide your names within a party and allowing you to pass without a trace. Systems & Development Comments: We're currently planning on giving skill description's a bit more love and a bit more weight when it comes to narrative and roleplaying. Certain players may want to try to disguise their identity whilst in a party and, with this mod, they'll now be able to. Mod: Surprise Attack (Assassin): Reduced damage bonus when attacking out of stealth from (3 * Tier) to (1 * Tier). Mod: Surprise Attack (Trickster): Removed additional turn when attacking out of stealth for DoT status effects. Shadowed Path: Option for base damage bonus when attacking out of stealth reduced from (10 * Rank)% to (4 * Rank)%. Effect (Listed here as Unique Skills are not in the Resource List). Systems & Development Comments: We decided to decrease damage of Shadowed Path in order to closer match a traditional DPS in order to compensate for its survivability as opponents are either forced to possibly waste their post action to try to find the wielder (which they may fail in the first place) or let the wielder stay in stealth.

    [2.6.2] Patch Notes

    Mechanic Changes: New mechanic: Passive Stealth Detection: Follows the general rules of stealth detection except it is performed at the start of combat, the turn a player enters stealth, and on the opposition's turns. The passive stealth detection rating is (10 + stealth detection bonuses) and is performed against the enemy's stealth rolls. In the case of a tie, the stealthed player wins. Does not count as an action. Unless declared otherwise, all mobs have a passive stealth detection rating of 9. Note: It is still possible for an entity to actively detect stealth, but this takes up the post action and follows the general rules of stealth detection. Running Away: If a player leaves both the combat and the thread, they are unable to participate in the same combat (i.e. fight) even if they rejoined the thread. Charge Clarification: Under the current wording, Charge can be used outside of the first turn of combat since, depending on the players' narratives, using the Charge skill is still possible. This is because the only restrictions on the skills are that Charge can only be used once per opponent per combat and that it must be possible via roleplay. Enhancement Changes: Blight: Removed proc from natural, successful attack rolls of 8-10 from two slots of the enhancement. Skill Changes: Charge: Negates any auto-hit effects from other skills and mods (e.g. Suprise Attack mods from Hiding, Tracking mod from Searching). A Charge attack's Accuracy is capped at 2. Hiding: Removed rank 4 (+1 turn of DoT) and rank 5 upgrades (+1 DMG). Mod: Vanish Moved to Rank 4 from Rank 5. Rank 5 Mod: Surprise Attack (Assassin) Damage bonus by attacking from stealth changed from +2 Damage to (+3 * Tier) Damage. Rank 5 Mod: Surprise Attack (Trickster) Now gives +1 turn to DoT status effects. Shadowed Path (Unique Skills): Does not stack with the Hiding skill. Adds +1 Stealth Rating per rank. Allows the user to buy and use Hiding mods. Cannot be detected with Passive Stealth Detection. User can choose from one of the two bonuses when attacking out of stealth and using the Shadowed Path sword arts: User's attack has (3 * Rank)% more damage to (10 * Rank)% more base damage. User's DoT status effects deals (5 * Rank)% more damage for the first two turns of the effect. Effect (Listed here since Unique Skills are not in the Resource List): Achilles (Unique Skills): Damage reduction from (8 * Rank)% to (10 * Rank)%. Counter damage from abilities is now exempt from the damage reduction and is doubled. Status effects which removes the user's post action (e.g. paralyze, stun, freeze) last twice as long, Effect (Listed here since Unique Skills are not in the Resource List): Quest Changes: Quest Revamp: «The Hidden Village» Cave Bats HP reduced from 1250 HP to 1000 HP. Cave Bats Evasion reduced from 3 Evasion to 2 Evasion. Clarification: Under the current wording, the quest spawns Cave Bats in groups of two with a number of groups equal to the number of players. This means that you are able to fight the bats in groups of two (i.e. the minimum number of Cave Bats you can fight per combat is two). As such, it is not necessary fight the maximum number (i.e. four) of Cave Bats each combat, but you do need to fight a number of Cave Bat groups equivalent to the players in the thread.

    Floor 1, 11, or 21 <<Nature's Treasure>> Recommended Level: Any | Party Limit: None Repeatable: Yes Credit: @Itzal Rewards: The Materials and loot gathered. Summary: Marking the beginning of each tier (Floors 1, 11, 21, etc.), these levels of Aincrad in particular each seem to have various locations among the floors that are bursting at the seams with crafting materials. They are easier to find than other hunting grounds on comparable floors, with short respawn rates to make them the best locations to hunt for materials. If the floor is vegetated, players can find a <<Garden>>. If there are a lot of buildings on the floor, players can find a <<Courtyard>>. If the floor is underground, players can find a <<Cavern>>. Many NPCs give away these farming locations, telling players about this amazing opportunity of extra materials, whether it be from plentiful monster drops or from the safer areas outside of town that make for easy, peaceful fishing and gathering. Searching: LD rolls of 11-14 give 1 material. LD rolls of 15+ give 2 materials. Gatherer skill is added to this roll as well. Fishing: Monsters and bosses never spawn. Fishing receives no bonus materials. CD 12s require a LD of 15+ (modifiers allowed) to fish up a treasure chest. If LD is 1-14, players receive 4 materials. Treasure Chests: LD of 1-3 does not result in a mimic, but drops (Floor * 25) col and one material. Looting Mobs: Mobs that satisfy the loot minimum always drop (HP * 4) col and 1 material as default drops, before other upgrades and aspects of the loot table are taken into account. Requirements: At least one [1] Page (20 or more posts) Mobs MUST meet or exceed the loot minimum parameter to be looted, and must still adhere to floor minimum/maximum rules.

"May not be the easiest or prettiest lifestyle, but the ole' anvil won't let you down when you need some sturdy weapons and armors." A few loud clangs ring out through the smithy as Cerdic drives the flat of his hammer into the red-hot metal of a straight-sword in progress, "Tell you what. Go scrounge up five pieces of ore and I'll show you how to use 'em along with a hammer of your own. There should be plenty in the caves past the southern forest--heck, you may even find some layin' around half-buried in the dirt! Just bring 'em here and we'll make you into a proper blacksmith."

Rumor has it that the boss can be found in a secluded cemetery on the first floor, in a place where the sun's rays never seem to break through the murky clouds looming overhead. Piecing together the stories from different players, there exists a massive statue in the shape of an angel that only awakens when at least two players are near, and only if one possesses an orange cursor. 'Repentance', as it's said to be called, has health and power higher than anything else found on the first floor and has killed many who have simply tried to redeem themselves. <<Repentance>>: Stats: HP: (Highest Player's Level) x 50 DMG: (Highest Player's Level) x 5 MIT: (Highest Player's Level) x 2.25 (Rounded down) ACC: (Highest Player’s Tier) x 1 [max 3] EVA: (Highest Player’s Tier) x 1 [max 3] Abilities: << Judgement > >: On critical hits of 9 and 10, this boss gains full phase on its attack. << Holy Blood > >: This boss is immune to all status effects, including Unique ones.

I work as a merchant, making just enough to support me and my family, but lately all of my supply caravans have been destroyed or chased away by a ferocious beast." He looks down at the floor, "I don't have much, but if you could slay the beast, I would pay you." Should you accept, Gatsly marks the coordinates on your map and tells you that the beast is a mutated, venomous wolf, deadlier than any other in the forest. He hands you a vial of green liquid and instructs you to drink it if you find yourself poisoned. Outline: Before embarking on the quest, each player receives one <<Antidote>> from Gatsly: Players must explore the forest outside of Urbus for the <<Venom Snapper>> and its wolf pack.

Extra Skill: <<Disguise>> if The Gemini is killed. ►Concentration Active: Free action Cooldown: 3 Turns Effect: Gain +1 ACC until the start of your next turn (must delcare use in roll purpose).

Possible to obtain after completing the quest <<The Gemini>> Objectives: Defeat <<The Gemini>> Summary: "You look pretty strong." A hooded figure approaches you and offers a simple challenge. "I'm looking to test my skills. If you beat me, I'll teach you a hidden skill. What do you say?" You travel to a suitable location outside of the city's safe zone in silence. When the hooded figure turns to face you, they reveal themselves. They have copied your appearance--everything from your facial features to equipment is completely identical. This challenge suddenly became a lot more sinister... Outline: Players must meet <<The Gemini>> and accept their challenge. <<The Gemini>>'s stats are determined at the start of combat. <<The Gemini>>'s Stats: HP: (Player's Level) x 10 DMG: (Player's Level) x 5 MIT: (Player's Level) x 1.75 (Rounded down) ACC: (Player's ACC) EVA: (Player's EVA) Critical Hits: DMG + (Player's Level) on a natural MD 9, DMG + (Player's Level x 2) on a natural MD 10. <<Disguise>>: +1 ACC to <<The Gemini>>'s first attack. For each consumable/temporary buff a player has when facing <<The Gemini>>, it will gain additional effects. For example, if a player has 3 temporary buffs, <<The Gemini>> will have Paralyze, Bleed, and bonus DMG. 1: Gain Paralyze: Removes player action for one turn on natural MD rolls of 9-10. 2: Gain Bleed: Deals (12 * Player's Tier) unmitigatable damage every turn for two rounds on natural MD rolls of 9-10. 3: Increases DMG by (Player's Level) 4: Increases MIT by (Player's Level) 5+: Increases HP by (Player's Level x 5) for each additional temporary buff on the player. Once combat begins, there is no running away from the battle. <<The Gemini>> will attack first, before the player, meaning the Charge skill cannot be used against it. <<The Gemini>> does not have any items, skills, or equipment besides the appearance of the gear the player is wearing when combat begins. Players can choose to end the fight in one of two ways, which alters the skill they receive from completing the quest: On the killing blow, <<The Gemini>> is destroyed. Player gains the <<Disguise>> skill. On the killing blow, <<The Gemini>> is instead reduced to one health and is spared. Player gains the <<Concentration>> skill. If <<The Gemini>> would deal the killing blow to a player, they are instead reduced to one health. <<The Gemini>> will end the combat and the player will have failed the quest (no quest rewards are earned). If they wish to try <<The Gemini>>'s challenge again, they must attempt the quest again in a new thread.
