      The SAO Staff Team!   02/22/2017

      Hello members of SAO-RPG!

      I'm sure most of you (if not some) have noticed or heard changes were made to the staff team. If you are applying to staff, you may have noticed that the application process has recently changed. This has all happened because of a reformation of the staff team and the way it operates. The staff now has separate teams for development. These teams are: Floor Creation Team [Floors, Quests/Events, Bosses], Systems & Clarifications Team, and Player Support Team.

      "Who is on these teams?" Well the answer to that lies below! Floor Team Systems & Clarifications Team Player Support Team * - Denotes Team Lead

      We also have a team to work on and develop the current systems but that team will search for its members and is not allowed to be applied to.

      Now you may be asking, "Shark, how does one apply to the Staff Team?" And I have but 1 simple answer!
      Go read this thread and it may answer all your questions!

      If you have any more questions, send me a PM and I will answer your questions about staff. (Only the format of teams and/or the application process)

  3. "Sounds shady, looks shady, is shady." Aereth replied with a smirk. "Just kidding. I trust that man. We did some 'business' together in the past. He's a pretty decent war-hammer user, and one of my main sources of information." He then added, thinking back to the big clusterf*ck mission that caused the two of them to meet. "Another story for another day." Aereth thought as they marched side by side. "It's ok. You're one of my oldest friends in here and I trust you. You know... I've tried so hard to cope with that matter through different means, but as soon as I think I can move on all this hatred, darkness and rage come back to me and I feel like sometimes talking helps... Keeps me from doing stupid things from time to time..." Aereth added with a bitter chuckle, but didn't press the matter of her talking about her missing lover. If she wanted to talk she always could. Even though he played like he was just another more or less normal person, deep inside he was broken beyond repair and was just trying to fool everybody around him (himself included) into thinking that everything was alright. That he just wanted to make this place better, safer more comfortable... The last comment made him chuckle a little bit. "While it is true that we at least have each other again, you can't deny that this sounded oddly romantic for two rivals, right?" @Birdie
  4. It seemed like Aereth was about to keep the item for himself, as Birdie also had no use for it. "Don't worry. I've got enough money to keep both of us from starving," he said with a chuckle and returned the smile as she told him how she was nervous about their meeting. "No need to thank me for anything. I'm just glad to know that you are alright and back with the living again. After the whole trouble of the last couple of weeks, it's good to have back an old rival, partner and friend. I finally got to tell you my real story. Something that I wanted to do for quite some time now. And don't worry. I actually know somebody. He has a restaurant near that mountain where one can get the material arts skill. From the outside, it looks kinda like a ruin, but the guy is one of the best cooks in this game, I swear." Aereth said, thinking back to that old 'friend' of him as he led the way. @Birdie
  5. Reads message. Finds Dom. Gives 8 Materials to the man. -8 T1-Mats
  6. First chuckling that quickly turned into mild laughing was the reaction Aereth gave the blue haired scout as she told him how this had been one of the worst fights she ever fought in her time here. "For me, it was not the worst, but also most definitely one of the more unpleasant ones. Hehe." At the sound of an angry wasp queen approaching them, Aereth quickly turned around and switched from his phase weapon to his accuracy ring. "I got this." was all he said as he started to rush towards the wasp once more. A couple of moments and another <<All Might>> later, the queen was finished and Aereth made his way back to Birdie. "You are right. I'm going to pay." he said and examined the last hit reward for the queen, before sending a request to give the item to her. "You want that? It says that it is a unique item that raises the power of bleed effects and I don't use these enhancements." @Birdie ID# 87943 results: Battle: 5+3 Damage: <All f*cking Might> so more than enough [H:3] Birdie - HP: 585/720 - EN: 46/72 - Stunned/Bleeding - 1 turn left, Bleeding for the next 2 turns [H:2] Aereth - HP: 624/880 - EN: 25/88 The Queen - HP: 0/500 - MIT: 75 - DMG: 200
  7. Thankfully inside of sword art online there was nothing like physical exhaustion from staying up too long. Sure, if you were to fight all day, your energy would sink and at some point, you are forced to rest but just from staying up a player wouldn't get too tired. Or at least that's what he was telling himself. He shook his head and continued to look for some more materials. A slight sigh escaped him while he picked up some more materials from the ground. How many did he find since he started to look for them? Probably more than enough for quite some time, but you never knew when some redhead decides to drop by for some more materials. He chuckled at the thought of Domarus. The man for sure would scold him again if he found out how hard he was pushing himself again. "That control freak..." ID# 87925 results: Loot: 14+5 Materials: 28+4 = 32
  8. "That little..." Aereth rumbled more to himself than to his party members as one of the mobs got a lucky hit on him. Immediately the brunette turned around to retaliate with a mediocre level sword art. It didn't even take two hits to destroy the almost dead mob. Aereth used the momentum from turning around to trigger his sword art and in one swift motion, the mob was done. Thankfully Domarus was here with his monster area of effect attacks. It really seemed like the mobs in this sub-dungeon were coming in waves, without giving the four players room to breathe. Immediately after Aereth finished the last one, two new, much stronger looking mobs spawned in front of them. Still stuck in post motion delay after using his sword art, Aereth could only hope that his comrades would, at least until he could move again, take care of the two elite mobs... ID# 87921 results: Battle: 4+3 Hit Damage: 12*3 = enough [H:0] Birdie: 680/680 | 64/68 | 39 MIT | 3 Evasion [H:0] Aereth: 806/880 | 69 /88 | 48 Mit | 3 Evasion [H:0] Ariel: 1,315 /1,315 | 111 /130 | 93 Mit | 1 Evasion [H:0] Domarus: 700/700 | 30/70 | 54 MIT | 0 Evasion Wraith#6 0/350 | 120 Dmg Elite Wraith #1: 500/500 | 150 DMG | 20 MIT | 1 ACC | 1 EVA Elite Wraith #2: 500/500 | 150 DMG | 20 MIT | 1 ACC | 1 EVA Attack Order: @Ariel - The Crowned Lion -> Domarus -> Birdie -> Aereth -> Elite Wraith
  9. Hearing the sounds of battle slowly drawing closer, Aereth ran as fast as his virtual feet could carry him. Thankfully he was able to dispatch all of the remaining minions and now finally he would be able to aid Birdie in her quest of taking down the field boss. When Aereth entered the scene, he saw how his blue haired companion was down on the floor with red damage markers all over her. Her health was slowly falling and she didn't move as the queen started to close in for yet another attack. There was no time to think much about the situation. Instinctively drawing his blade, the brunette activated his <<Charge>> skill and sped towards the wasp queen in order to intercept the mob before it could reach the blue haired scout. For the first time now the brunette was using his full speed and full strength. Just in time Aereth dashed past the bluenette and began to charge up his strongest single target sword art. The Phase enhancement coated the brunette in a dark aura as he jumped up to bury his fist into the body of the mob. It seemed the mob did either not notice or completely ignore him. It was only focused on Birdie. Big mistake. Aereth unleashed the punch and immediately two forces fought for dominance. The wasp put all her power into resisting of being pushed back, and Aereth put all his power into breaking through the defence of her. And he did break through. The body armor of the queen slowly began to make cracking noises and the Aereth started to overpower her. His hood got pulled back by the winds that picked up and the queen got thrown back a couple of meters before he also jumped back to see if Birdie was ok. "Hey there. You ok?" he asked as he helped her up again to her feet. ID# 87916 results: Battle: 9 Critical Hit Damage: (14+3+1)*15-37 = 233 DMG (Charge + 9er Crit. with Phase) [H: 3] Birdie - HP: 609/720 - EN: 46/72 - Stunned/Bleeding (24 damage), 1 turn left [H: 2] Aereth - HP: 624/880 - EN: 42/88 The Queen - HP: 67/500 - MIT: 75 - DMG: 200 @Birdie
  10. "Enough." he mentally screamed, as he jumped back to avoid another hit from his foes. Fortunately, there was a tree nearby which he used as some kind of springboard to finally start retaliating. At this point, he was done with playing around. He just wanted to get this quest over with, get all the rewards and grab something to eat and drink afterwards. He twisted his body mid-air and started to charge up his material arts area of effect sword art. Fortunately, the <<Tornado Kick>> connected and he was able to execute the manoeuvre without problems this time around. The remaining mobs burst into tiny little polygons and immediately after he landed on the ground again, he started to head towards the direction where Birdie left with the field boss. While running Aereth sheathed his blade and prepared to take on the last remaining opponent of today... ID# 87907 results: Battle: 7+3 Hit Damage: More than enough. <<Tornado Kick>> [H:3] Birdie - HP: 720/720 - EN: 58/72 [H:0] Aereth - HP: 624/880 - EN: 42/88 The Queen - HP: 407/500 - MIT: 75 - DMG: 200 Bee Minion #6 - HP: 0/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 Bee Minion #7 - HP: 0/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 Bee Minion #8 - HP: 0/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 @Birdie
  11. Birdie lured the filed boss away, which only left Aereth and the three almost dead Bee Minions. He was sure that one more hit would definitely end them and thus he would soon be able to catch up to the bluenette and help her take down the wasp queen. Somehow this whole quest was quite an uphill battle for both of them. They missed far too often and there was still no end in sight. And as if the wasps were able to read his mind, they easily dodged his next attempt to end their pathetic virtual lives. "Damn, if I can't start the combo the whole area of effect sword art will fail." Aereth cursed as he now had to dodge the fury of attacks from the half dead mobs. At this point, he was just hoping that Birdie would have an easier time hitting the queen... ID: 87905 Battle: 1+3 Miss Mob: 6-3 Miss [The Queen : 1] Birdie - HP: 720/720 - EN: 58/72 [Bee Minions: 1] Aereth - HP: 624/880 - EN: 53/88 The Queen - HP: 407/500 - MIT: 75 - DMG: 200 Bee Minion #6 - HP: 57/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 Bee Minion #7 - HP: 57/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 Bee Minion #8 - HP: 57/250 - MIT: 25 - DMG: 125 @Birdie
  12. Aereth closed his eyes and waited for the impact, as he saw how the blonde started to raise her hand against him. But nothing happened. Opening his eyes again, he saw the faint blush and the raised arm. What followed then were some moments of silence until Kooh lowered her arm again and told him to be careful. With a chuckle, the brunette replied. "Ok ok. I would much rather prefer if you just visit me or write a message. I'm in no need of another adventure like that in the next time." And after her next comment, he just walked past her again and activated his searching skill, to see if Leyna was anywhere around them, but not before cracking a smile and replying. "So that means you would be jealous if I did that to any other girl?" He quite enjoyed messing around with the blonde lately. Hell, this was the only form of entertainment he had on this whole trip.... @Kooh
  13. Aereth nodded in agreement. "That sounds good Dom. That would raise our chances of actually catching on off guard." And he was pleased to hear that Dazia had no problems with following the plan the two came up with. "The piglets usually don't fight, they just flee. But they let lower levelled players get closer to them before they run. The only things you need to look out for are these piglets. I will follow you in quite some distance and strike as soon as you find one. In case they flee we will force them towards Dom where he can catch them if need be. And don't worry about any other mobs around you..." the brunette said and vanished for a moment just to appear right in front of Dazia with a chuckle. "Like Dom said... I'm pretty damn fast." After that he quickly opened the map and together with Domarus marked the spaces where Domarus would be hiding and from where Dazia and Aereth would approach. @Dazia @Domarus
  14. But before he would go up and kill mobs in order to get some steam and stress out of his system, he would need to finish his business down here. Gathering some more materials until he had enough for the next couple of weeks. Looking at the clock in on his HUD, Aereth noticed that it was well past five o' clock in the afternoon. About two more hours and then he would start grinding through the mobs of floor 21. Slowly but surely the brunette was f*cking up his sleep schedule again. He hated to sleep. Most of the times he would just lie in bed waiting for the next morning, or if the sandman came to him he would only have nightmares. So either way, it was better for him to just reduce sleeping to a minimum again and use the extra time to grind for some EXP. ID# 87894 results: Loot: 4 Materials: 28
