    I just wanna take this time to thank all of the GM's and @Larva for giving us 3 Happy Hours' back to back to back a few days ago. We were able to hunt these amazing Summer Event items with our teammates and friends in the Ultima community and have fun hunting during Happy Hour. I don't complain too much on this server because I know ya'll work hard and do the best ya'll can to give us new content on every event and I know ya'll have real lives outside of Ultima and I'm grateful to be able to play a game that's 20 years old and one of my favorite games that we're keeping alive. I like to hunt and have fun and I really don't comment too much on these topics because I understand all GM's cannot be on here 24/7 and I'm thankful that ya'll help us with any questions we need answered and/or redeeming donation tickets to increase the attributes and hit on our weapon when ya'll on here. I wanted to acknowledge the GM staff in Ultima community of all the hard work ya'll put in and the help we need in Ultima community is greatly appreciated. Again thank you Ultima GM staff for everything ya'll do for us on this server and making it a great community.

    I'm against nerfing the Serene Swan. In fact, in my opinion this is potentially the best creation ever made for our server. It is a beautiful (kudos to the person who did the skin for it) and a very funny weapon to use, it is nothing that breaks the playability, actually, it is quite the opposite, it gives a nice touch to the gameplay. Its power comes from the character ATP itself, and is very dependant from buffs/debuffs (Shifta/Zalure) to shred the enemies. Otherwise, it is as strong as a blank Yasminkov 9000M. On my humble opinion, I think Serene Swan should stay as it is. Also, here are some wise words from a great sorcerer: "𝓘𝓯 𝓲𝓽 𝓪𝓲𝓷'𝓽 𝓫𝓻𝓸𝓴𝓮, 𝓭𝓸𝓷'𝓽 𝓯𝓲𝔁 𝓲𝓽" - Gran Sorcerer

    This is a really long post. Don't even bother reading my post if you are not willing to hear constructive arguments. Ultima Server was never about balancing the game, and it will never be. We give every class even more status boost (+100 ATP, +100 DFP, +100 MST, +10 ATA and +30 EVP). Material usage was never increased to balance this (you are able to max less attributes than you could on a vanilla server). That means, what was unbalanced, become even more unbalanced; Enemies were buffed on Ultimate difficult. They have more EVP, which means that commons weapons needs more ATA to land their attacks than on other servers. There are no ways to increase hit on weapons other than using Donation Tickets or waiting one or two years for a Hit Event to happen; Monsters on Ultimate got: more ATP - monsters lands more powerful attacks more DFP - our attacks deals less damage more ATA - monsters lands more accurate attacks more EVP - monsters evades much more, means attacks have more chances to miss more LCK - monsters lands more critical attacks Almost everyone starts playing as Ranger because they have a much better growth performance than any other class type. You can kill literally every monster before they have a chance to land an attack on you. This server is dominated by Rangers, and for that reason, we don't have many skilled Hunters or Forces playing here. It is much easier to spam DM and Hell Shots than actually learning how to position yourself correctly or use optimal weapon choices for spawns; Hunters and Forces, on the other side, have a really bad growth performance, unless you are decently geared already. Because the material usage was never increased, they need to use Status Units to reach max stats, or switch mags depending on your playstyle (melee or support). That means useful units like Proof of Sword Saint, Cure Units, PB/Increase and a few other useful units have a very limited usage here, unless you sacrifice the use of something else; Because the Ultimate mode was buffed to the point casting techniques barely does damage and are more "harmful" than beneficial (due to the Damage Cancel), Forces here become literally Hunters and/or Rangers. Forces have more weapon choices than Hunters or Rangers together, whereas they don't shine on what they were supposed to: cast strong techniques and give optimal support for other classes; I think that conversation with the desire to balance classes and gameplay because Serene Swan is "too broken" is kinda hypocritical. There are much more important things to care about, instead of fighting for a single target weapon nerf. People say Serene Swan should be exclusive to HUmar... but no one plays HUmar. Will people bother to play HUmar if it becomes a weapon exclusive to this class? Honestly, I don't think so. It is a class that could really benefit from having SD15 at least or SD20 optimally, but HUmars only have access to Macho Blades, which casts SD level 7 only. They could benefit from Lindcray usage... but that weapon was strictly taken from HUmar for unknown reasons. The fact is, HUnewearl is just much better than HUmar on every instance. Lets stop being hypocritical. "No one cares about HUmar because HUcast exists and have traps". That's just not true. Interesting enough, Serene Swan is already useable by HUmars... what are people waiting for to make their first HUmar then? 🤔 Now about Serene Swan... I don't remember a single time the Devil special on Serene Swan landed successfully on a Episode II mob using HUcast, and considering casts already have a penalty using HP cutting special + the low ATA of the weapon + its special, a reduced version of Demon's, I don't think the special on the weapon is harmful. It is almost close to an useless special on casts. My idea was to give it a Spirit special for some kind of "balance" in terms of a damage output of a HUcast vs other classes. When I suggested status, it was a handgun range weapon, just like the Last Swan we already know, but instead, have more ATP than it currently have (my idea was 200~250 ATP). But the staff decided to give it rifle range and Devil special. It wasn't possible to give Serene Swan a rifle range without also increasing the number of bullets. We should admit, HUcast will be the strongest class regardless of which weapons you give to other classes, that's how they were designed to be. Unless a status/material usage balance is done on Ultima, that won't change. That video was shown during the weapon moderation, on first days of event release, and there was a staff agreement to not change the weapon status and keep it as it is. Larva himself said he didn't found Serene Swan that "game breaking" as some have stated. Want me to be honest? I don't think the outcome of the weapon is that bad as people say either. For anyone who is willing to make a serious comparison, here are some weapon stats I collected from Vanilla PSOBB, 2014 SCHTHack and Ultima: What SCHThack did to compensate/balance the specified weapons to make them useable but at the same time, counter the possible game breaking problems? They combo unlocked said weapons and nerfed their ATP and ATA. But differently from Ultima, they never touched monster status, which was the case here. So basically, saying the Serene Swan should be nerfed to the ground as SCHT did to their counterparts would be inaccurate solely because of Ultimate mode boost; Ultima is a completely different server. Now, if we stop to think, isn't it kinda disrespectful at this point to do anything on Serene Swan regarding nerfs, for those who invested their money, Photon Spheres on it and also, that would probably ruin the purpose of hunting the said weapon? What is it going to be now? Just a bettered Serene Swan? Another Serene Swan useable by females? Should take careful choices before doing anything in my opinion. Ultima ruined Blood Sword (because Hundred Souls exist) ,Water Gun (because it was nerfed to the point it isn't as useful as it was before) a few otehr good weapons became obsolete, so I don't want to see the same thing happening to Serene Swan. The latest 10th Anniversary Items were a total failure, people were complaining because of how bad was their outcome. I'm surprised people are now complaining because Serene Swan is "too good", come on, just let it alone... Anyways I'm sure many would be disappointed to a potential high-end replacement for Charge/Berserk Rayguns for Hunters being buried. So yeah, stop to think Ultima must have the same assets as SCHT, Ephinea, or Destiny. That is the fun part of playing here, having a few "overpowered" weapons and add other styles of playability to every class. tl;dr I'm against any nerf.

    Congratulations guys for the confirmed drops so far. Here are some revelations about the drop tables to save you some pain: Centurion/Battle drops on ultimate from Dark Falz: Purplenum and Redria (Whitill was removed this year for people willing to hunt Red Rings) Olga Flow: Pinkal and Viridia Kondrieu: Oran and Yellowboze Epsilon: Skyly and another ID All boss location drops have been made about twice easier than last year The second section ID for Epsilon has a slightly better drop rate than Skyly. Serene Swan drops on ultimate from Gran Sorcerer from episode II on All section IDs Drop rate: 1/1489

    So... Since nobody posted this yet: Serene Swan: General Description: Looks like Last Swan, but blue (big shout out to @Noob Saibot for this really cool skin). Rifle range, Fires 4 shoots per attack and it's not a female exclusive. Requirement: 170 ATA ATP: +15 ( doubt it's variable, but since i haven't found another for comparison, i'm not fully sure for now ) ATA: +37 Max Grind: +80 making it a 175 ATP weapon Special: Devil Tech Boosts: ??? Equipable by: RAcast, HUcast, FOmarl (haven't tried other classes, since the server is kinda slow right now) Combinations: Still haven't tried to combine the weapon with any other item, but most likely not upgradable. I know this might not be the place to post this, but at least everyone will see it here. Any errors or additional information that you would like to share about the weapon, just let me know that i'll edit the post asap. Enjoy and good luck on your hunts!

    Someone linked an article in a Discord channel I'm in explains how data in PSO works. I'll paste relevant information down below. Some of this is already kind of widely known but there were still a few interesting bits in there. Basically what I gather from this is: Desync doesn't exist, since it never existed in the first place. It makes sense why DMC is worse on players with bad connection. Here's the article if you want to read it yourself: http://www.bumped.org/psublog/technical-concepts-of-phantasy-star-online-universe-and-portable-2/

    Not to sound negative but why are we still talking about this weapon Serene Swan? I mean come on its a new weapon and we need to test it out and enjoy it. So what if the weapon not balanced. Its some balanced weapons on here and some people not even skilled with it. So what if it does a lot of damage and do like 3-4 shots oh well. Be grateful that they even took the time to give us a new weapon that we can hunt and have fun adding hit, testing it out, etc. I can't believe people are still talking about this! I'm usually not the person to comment and make a fuss about things I just play this game to have fun with friends and have fun hunting these items on the Ultima server. I'm tired of hearing about it. If it bother ya'll that much then do something about it or otherwise just be grateful about getting new content on this server and have fun hunting it. I don't wanna offend and make anyone mad but this is just my opinion and I usually don't vent like this but c'mon guys we gotta do better and be thankful.

    I have proposed a couple of ideas that kind of get buried by others. I do agree those who say Olga Flow should have a year round drop. I feel like each final boss of an episode should have a unique item that only drops from them like how Dark Falz has Red Ring. I do not however agree with with making PGF a year round drop. With how old this server is and the amount of money some of us, myself included, have put into the game for items like PGF, it would devalue the item(s) associated with PGF and upset a lot more people. My solution is make an armor exclusive to Olga Flow that bridges the massive gap between Wedding Dress and Sonic Team Armor. Set the drops to an equal number of IDs that get Red Ring, but not the same IDs of course. Kroe's sweater isn't an Olga Flow unique drop like Red Ring is for Falz and does not need to be changed for dropping on those IDs. TL;DR Give Olga Flow a unique year round item drop that is an Armor better than Wedding Dress, but weaker than STA. Note that at Christmas the item should change to PGF if applicable to the ID for Christmas only.

    I know this may sound crazy and without much purpose for some but, I think it would be interesting to see a command to reset/downgrade a character level, perhaps for those who do not want to remake a character, or just want to have another chance to take a picture of that so sweaty level 200, or those who want to start leveling from scratch again; on some games, that feature is also known as New Game + (starts a new game with your previously obtained gear). That concept was first introduced by the so famous RPG, Chrono Trigger (1995), and was adopted by some later games. I heard a similar concept also exists on PSO:BB Eden server. I don't know the exact details since I never played there; after reaching level 200 and reseting your character level for the first time, the character color name changes and you are rewarded somehow when reaching level 200 on that specific character again. Then, a second level reset makes your color name change again, and reaching level 200 for the 3rd time on that character rewards you with a very rare and special item. Follow this example: Take your character from Level 1 to Level 200 - White Name On this mode, you can have the full advantage of experience boosts, up to 5X Uses the /newgameplus command Your character becomes Level 1 Take your character from Level 1 to Level 200 - Cream Name On this mode, you can take a slightly advantage of experience boosts, up to 4X Rooms made by cream named players have a slightly better DAR/RDR than ones made by white named players Reaching level 200 on this mode rewards you with 10x Photon Spheres Uses the /newgameplus command Your character becomes Level 1 again Take your character from Level 1 to Level 200 - Orange Name On this mode, you are not allowed to take any advantage of experience boosts, 3x until Lv 160 and 2x onwards) Rooms made by orange named players have a slightly better DAR/RDR than ones made by cream named players Reaching level 200 on this mode rewards you with a very rare item, maybe a PGF *DAR - Drop Anything Rate *RDR - Rare Drop Rate That feature could also be used as a way to show other players how old/experienced is your character: White colored name - Rookie Cream colored name - Veteran Orange colored name - Expert I know this idea needs some work/thoughts but the main idea is here. Needs to set interesting rewards, or some cool advantages for becoming a veteran or an expert, as that would consume a lot of time and motivation from players.

    You're just incredibly ignorant and don't know the first thing about PSO balance in the first place. You're missing the point about NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE is saying Yas 9k are balanced. Ofc ranger's have top TA records for tower, because no one has the skill to use HU efficiently in tower. Demons is reduced anyway on HUcast/caseal anyway so the addition of that wouldn't make that big of a difference anyway. HU is very capable of having records in tower, just not many people have the skill for it. RAmars can use yas 9k. so literally no point in bringing them up. Also you apparently have no idea what racist even means. You missed everything I said in the post and disregarded it. I've been playing this game for almost 4 years now on this server and I think I'm very qualified to comment on what qualifies as broken or not. Don't tell me not to comment on stuff when you have not a clue what makes an item balanced or not. You REALLY need to start thinking before you post. It blows up in your face 100% of the time and you look more foolish than you already are. Also I know you're going to bring it up, but I'm not singling you out. Any time you post something not inflammatory/dumb I leave you alone, but that's a rare occasion these days.

    Now don't get me with the bullshit of why to change it once it already release, that's it dump or stupid to alter something that has been out already for 3 DAYS !!!. We will never ever be able to please everyone. that it's the reason the examples above don't ask to the community cuz is a never ending discussion. Even whiting the staff. All wanted something different for the weapon. At this moment the weapon wont be alter or change in any way. But in the future if we consider that is for the best to make a change we will do so.

    better stop putting prototypes on the server, at least until they think it's the end product. What is the purpose of putting things to change afterwards and create confusion for the community? Next time think before launching things on the server.

    Friends, InternetCountry(Wo)Men, and PSOites, Lend me your ear, i came to praise Serene Swan not to bury it The Nerf that ones do lives after them The Devils is oft interred with the Rifle Range So let it be with Serene The Nobles Hath told you Serene was ambitious. If it were so, it was a grievous fault, And grievously hath Swan answered it. Here, under leave of Hucast and the rest— For Hucast is an honorable man; So are they all, all honorable men and women— Come I to speak in Serene’s funeral. She was my friend, faithful and just to me. But Nobles says she was ambitious, And Nobles are honorable man and women. They hath brought many weapons home to PSO Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill TL : DR- I like the gun xD please don nerf toooo bad

    What weapon? You mean the one that never drops? Go ahead nerf it might effect 5 people by events end. In fact nerf the drop rates even further and give it charge special and +50 to all stats. Also it should require PGF to be equipped in your MAG slot and at least 500 DTs in your forum account. People still play this??

    Ahoy everyone, I'd like to start by saying that this topic is meant to show with facts how Serene Swan (SS) from Summer Event 2019 is doing in the actual metagame (like I did on my previous topic with the 10th Anniversary additions) and stay open as a resourceful long term history. I'm not waiting for any sort of definitive statment from the staff about SS to close the discussion. Since this weapon is almost a four weeks old item by now, some tests, weapon comparisons, video-showcases and other content from players who dropped SS already are very welcome and encouraged. With a bit of trivia, on 11th of june 2019, Larva posted a message in favor of balanced items by putting OP weapons on stand by for near future items; That being said, a couple of weeks later the following item appeared as; Serene Swan 175 ATP (grinders included) Grinder: +80 37 ATA 170 ATA required Special: Devil Animation: Handgun 12 shots (3x4) Range: Rifle All classes Gran Sorcerer EPII 1/1489 ⏤ All section IDS While going in depth on SS, let's compare this handgun to those said OP weapons that Larva is referring to or should we say Top-tier Ultima exclusive weapons on a clarity purpose in examples. Then outside Dark Weapons, I will list a couple of endgame gear as their optimal character configuration and single target usage down below. So HUcast will be the main user of SS during this topic. HUcast highest ATP of the game Close-Range: Ten Years Blades (TYB) is the highest ATP based twin sword (5 hits). Mid-Range: Psycho Raven (PR) is the highest ATP based mechgun (9 hits). HUnewearl best rifle of the game Long-Range: Lindcray the highest ATP based rifle (3 hits). Latest addition to the game Long-Range: Serene Swan (SS) is the first 12 hits weapon of the server ever made. ▷ 12 HITS To compare this unique 12 hits weapon, here is an in-depth post from @Fyrewolf5 explaining how a high multy-shot weapon like an unlocked L&K38 (that would be 15 hits vs 12 for SS) combine with the Shifta damage multiplier, can hardly be implemented within the metagame without ruining the diversity: https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/6048-ideas-to-improve-the-server-feel-free-to-post/&do=findComment&comment=209412 SERENE SWAN VS PSYCHO RAVEN After theory, what does it really mean ingame? Let's see how Serene Swan does versus the Top-tier weapon Psycho Raven in a simple showcase on a mini boss like Mericus (Ultimate difficulty) that bypass the Weapons %Attributs Damage Boost. RESULTS Serene Swan Shifta 30 Average damage per bullet on Hard Attack = 505~ x12 Full combo H/H/H = 6000~ Damages Psycho Raven Shifta 30 Average damage per bullet on Hard Attack = 666~ x9 Full combo H/H/H = 6000~ Damages Serene Swan deals the same amount of damage as Psycho Raven with a buff level 30 from Force, while PR can't reach his target without triggering the mob, SS can. Which brings us to the next point; ▷ RIFLE RANGE As shown previously in video, the Rifle-Range gives noticeable advantages in comparison to shorter ranged weapons. Such as the running distance separating you from your target to reach the mid and close-range is considered as Damage per Second loss, while you could start firing across the room without triggering the mob and being safe at the same time. That's why some close-range items like TYB & FotB were compensated with high ATP and Charge Special to value more that gameplay in specific situations but overall, the rifle range has nothing to prove anymore. The first time that a rifle was offered to every single class on Ultima was Water Gun, who was released with 70 based ATA, 15 grind and the special of your choice (with dt)... The ATA was adjusted to 50 to keep Hand of Justice useful, the grind was removed to keep the ATP really low considering that HUcast can equip it. It's a summer toy after all but it still has a purpose as the best Blizzard long range gun available for HUnters. So now an all class weapon that fires 12 shots on rifle range definitely sounds good to any PSO players. This is an unarguably appealing announcement that could satisfy a lot of people. So why bother considering modify Serene Swan then? It would be sad to classify it as Over Power or fine as it is without analysis (since it's a new addition) but it definitely compete with Psycho Raven which is a well known Top-tier weapon. So this is not about cutting short the fun but about a matter of balancing the metagame and keeping other custom items worth to hunt (like was made with WG to HoJ). At this point @Soly expressed a desire to balance this mix by soften one aspect of SS, the Rifle-Range could have been it; https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/33629-summer-event-player-made-drop-table-2019/&do=findComment&comment=213598 ▷ ALL CLASSES In PSO original descriptions, RAngers were meant to have access to the longest range weapons with medium ATP abilities, while HUnters compensate their shorter range with high ATP. Which makes them harder to master since they had to reach the close range to start attacking. From this vanilla concept to the Ultima adaptation, this difference was balanced with powerful HUnters slicers like Slicer of Vengeance to manage crowd control, stronger "Charge Vulcan like" equivalent with Psycho Raven (HUmar/cast) or the best rifle ever made as Lindcray (HUnewearl). All of those weapons adds more flexibility to HUnters through differents ranges and generous ATP. RAngers are no exception and are altered as well, especially with a solid mechanic known as Demon Special that cuts 75% HP of the target per shot on RAmar/marl. Which makes them extremly efficient at long range distance with Yasminkov 9000M and crowd control with TypeSH/SHOT. This feature bypass the medium ATP downside from the original concept. A way of reducing these vanilla downsides is by merging some classes exclusives gameplay to other classes, which tends to homogenize the experience. Now Serene Swan is far from a Varista or Water Gun low-tier class available for every single class. Maybe this general buff still sounds fair to some of you but in fact it's makes the strongest classes even more superior due to their higher based ATP and the reasons to play the lower ATP classes more thin than they already are... Because in the end, equality is not always fair nor in favor of a varied experience; HUcast SS > HUmar SS HUcast SS > HUnewearl SS HUcast SS > HUcaseal SS HUcast SS > RAcast SS > RAmar/marl SS & RAcaseal SS While equity could be used to the benefit to the weaker and promote diversity by buffing them with exclusive items; HUcast 1739 ATP = Psycho Raven HUcaseal = Dual Bird (extended range) HUmar = Psycho Raven, Serene Swan HUnewearl = Lindcray RAmar/marl = Demon Yas9 RAcast/caseal = Charge Yas9 FOrce = Lindcray, Samba Fiesta Serene Swan as it is could be the HUmar "OP weapon", like Lindcray is for HUnewearl, Demon Yas9 for RAmar/marl or Psycho Raven with the highest ATP from HUcast. FINAL WORDS? HUmar only, HUcast restricted, Female only? Keeping it all classes? Handgun range, Mechgun range, from 4 to 3 shots? Keeping it 12 hits & rifle range? Lower the ATP, remove the grind, combo lock? Leave the ATP as it is? A lot of twists are possible however Serene Swan has it all at the moment and it's the only way to play it, so feel free to launch PSOBB and experience this unique weapon by yourself. Don't get me wrong, SS as it is is super fun to use but any feedback supported with ingame facts (texts, pictures, videos) will be appreciated and so during time & multiple point of views this topic should stand out a clear idea of what Serene Swan is made of. Finally, feel free to complete the poll to express your state of mind regarding How do you want to consider Ultima. Thanks for reading!

    I agree with some of those things . especially the part about the forums . People should at the very least get warnings for saying things that are inappropriately weird even if they’re just jokes like saying sexual jokes about themselves and their dads cause that’s just disgusting and weird af rather than trip about someone using modern day slang .

    There's several things that stop Ultima from being the best that it could be. Things like: Boosted EVP looks like a blatant cash grab for more donations Admin is hardly around, which means events can start weeks late/end weeks late. PGF is only available one month out of a year. Frequent abusers of the forum go unpunished/unbanned. Honestly I think OP weapons like SS, Unlocked DM, etc. aren't going to break/kill Ultima. Nerfing a very usable weapon won't help, especially when HUcaseal really needed something like it. Although, I think there's a difference between having OP weapons and just dumb stuff like combo-unlocked Snow Queen or rifle range Arrest Needle(kind of exists as STARs needle but only mio can use) or shields that let humans use traps. Removing the challenge from the game with obscenely OP items also removes the fun for most.

    I say don’t nerf it but boost it. But on the real the weapon is fine. It’s highly dependent on SD and PB so it’s def not a game breaker. The idea is great, the HU community has been asking for an unlocked MR type weapon for years, and now that they get it, it’s too “game breaking”. I love opinions as much as the next guy but most opinions I’ve seen come off as “complaints”. This server favors rangers, lets be real. Forces have gotten some weapons here and there but not as game breaking as rangers have. My humble LGBTQ 🏳️‍🌈 opinion. I have more to say but I don’t want to be crucified by the group that hates me. Thank you Lipelis for the effort you put making the post, even if it will become a Trollfest I appreciate the time you took to make it as informative as possible.

    You are calling me selfish for recognizing that the server stays afloat with the donations people make and not wanting to devalue the money people spent, but want an armor that is named after yourself that breaks the game and defeats the purpose of the Cast classes? I am sorry but that is the most hypocritical thing I have had to wake up to and read. How many times do people need to blatantly tell you that it will never be a year round drop on here. I don't need you turning my suggestions into selfish short stories about how we should favor new players over people who paid for the drops and or paid for the items from others by actually paying the server to acquire the donation tickets.

    If you ever want to get your point across sincerely, try not starting your sentences like that. Stop being so conceited and passive aggressive. You may not like Mud or R-78 but they both know more about the game than we both do and probably ever will. Mud actually went full nerd mode and explained things to you and you disregarded it. Relax.

    That would be totally broken. In just one attack of 4 bullets you could reduce a monster's health to 0.4% With the rifle range do you realise it is just going to outclass every single demon weapon in this game? Yasminkov 9000M, Samba Fiesta, TypeME/Mechgun, Bringer's Rifle, Hand of Justice...

    Buff Blood Sword to be at the minimum stronger than Hundred Souls. I suggest at least 1500-2000 ATP range or more considering it is a single target Saber, while Hundred Souls is three targets. As it is currently, there is no point for it to exist since Hundred Souls outclasses it vastly. I don't think we need Serene Swan to become just another Last Swan, which is female only. About Anniversary Items, which were considered as failures (Arrest/Frozen Faust and Ultima Bringer's), I suggest: Arrest Faust - to act like an Iron Faust but, using Hold/Seize special (lower levels of Arrest), let only Humans or Newmans use it --> If it isn't possible to make it act as an Iron Faust, make it act as a combo unlocked Cannon Rouge, just like Banana Cannon. Frozen Faust - to act like an Iron faust but, using Frost/Freeze special (lower levels of Blizzard), let only Humans or Newmans use it (Banana Cannon exists though, casts already have ice traps, so only human Hunters could benefit from its existence) --> If it isn't possible to make it act as an Iron Faust, make it act as a combo unlocked Cannon Rouge, just like Banana Cannon. Ultima Bringers - make it act like Rianov 303 SNR-5, but using Bringer's Rifle skin. Make it uses Demon's special (if after further testing it is considered game breaking, switch to Devil's, but I really doubt it would be, seeing there are not many situations with perfect aligned enemies for piercing feature).

    A single target handgun will never break the game no matter how OP it may look on paper. Ive been using it and the only thing i find needs a nerf is probably the rifle range, other than that the weapon is fine. Its not gamebreaking or anything like "omg this weapon does EVERYTHING", sure its a good handgun but thats all it is. If it receives a class usability nerf and its only usable by females the weapon could stay exactly as it is except maybe the rifle range. This is because out of all the ladies in the game the only one who will actually use it is hucaseal as everyone else has better options or their atp is too low to use it effectively (specially if it receives an atp nerf) If its gona get nerf into oblivion anyway then make it so bad that it doesnt replace Last swan. That way i dont have to waste DTs on this too.

    If they're gonna nerf this, they should go ahead and nerf Psycho Ravens while they're at it, since they're just as OP.

    How about an armor that follows the Nimaidou series for HUs with built-in cent battle ? Stats could be something like 250 dfp and evp and 20 or so to each resist

    Probably been mentioned before but since we end up with tons of the same items clogging up our banks after hunting for one with hit and/or perfect stats, would it be possible to add a quest to scrap extra items for pds, grinders, materials or something like the event cards that are redeemable for adding %s?

    Let's just remember @Soly is the one who is taking orders from superiors, is the one who spend his time to find out how to tweak the weapon and is the one who is just warning players about possible changes, if the weapons gets nerfed, we should be aware it isn't because he decided it alone. There's no need to give him negative rep. We should at least respect everything Soly and the other staff members do for our server. As a community I think we should express our thoughts, but in a civil way, not by just massively attacking someone's reputation.

    I believe that if we fully understand the establishments created by the enforced agencies of life, we can conquer our inabilities to focus as one unit, create a social consciousness and manifest the purest energy in the universe; blorgon9400c. One simple unit of blorgon9400c is enough to power an entire city for 400 years without failure

    The year is 2025, green names have been on for 2 years. Summer event has been left on for a year, the 42069th Centurion/Battle has just dropped, lowering the value to 5 pds.
