Hello everyone, we have been following the conversations that relate back to our "New Content & Items" post. If you haven't read that topic yet, you can do so at the following link.

 

Based on everyone's feedback, we've decided to plan for some changes. You can find out more through the following Q/A section.

  • What's being changed/added?
    • We received quite a few replies about how players would like to see a new equipment set added (not level 12's).
    • As such, we have decided to add a new equipment set, that will be deemed level 13 (yes, we're skipping level 12's on the Mystic Server).
  • How will the equipment be obtained?
    • Many players voiced that one of their major issues with level 12 was the complexity of crafting the items as well as the crafting requirements needed to do so.
    • This new equipment set will be able to be found by killing monsters or through crafting.
    • This means that you can farm the items like you would with level 11 items, or you could farm the materials like you would with level 12 items! In some cases, you may even be able to do both in order to increase the amount of items you obtain.
  • What will the level/stat requirement for these items be?
    • Since these new items will be considered level 13, they will require a higher level to wear.
    • We have not fully decided what level yet, but it will most likely be around 260+.
  • Will the items have Set Bonuses/Set Effects?
    • We did not see any comments saying that players did not like the set bonuses/effects. We actually saw a few that said they liked this feature.
    • So, yes the new equipment will have small bonuses added to the character based on how many items from the equipment set is worn (similar to how level 12 items work). These bonuses will be different than the level 12 items.
  • When will the items be available?
    • It's too early, to say. When we have more information we will let players know. However, they will be on the test server at least for 1-2 weeks before they go live.
    • We're looking at them being at least 3-4 weeks away.
  • How about stats & upgrading?
    • This is where we saw a bit of division among the player base. Some players explained how they liked the fact that the items had multiple stats to upgrade, some voiced that they liked the variety but disliked the difficulty of getting a "perfect stat" item, others voiced that items should only have 1 stat or 2 stats (such as just Blessing levels).
    • So we would like to once again leave the decision in the players hands as to what route we will take.
      • We've attached a poll to this topic regarding the issue. Please vote on the poll and we will analyze the final results in the end.
        • The poll will be automatically closed on June 3rd, that gives everyone 2 weeks to vote and share the topic with their friends.
        • Remember, if you vote more than once on alternate accounts we will not count ANY of your votes when we tally up the final results.
      • Poll Option 1 - "The items should have four stats, but be easier to get "Perfect Stats" and be upgraded with Sephiroth and Sephiorth Choice gems."
        • This would work how the current level 12 item system works. However, we would eliminate some of the useless stat options so that obtaining the generally desired stats is much easier.
          • As one example, we would remove "Critical Rate" from level 13 staffs/sticks as this stat is not desirable for mages.
          • The end result may even mean that items only have 4 stats available (we aren't sure yet, but this is a possibility for some items).
        • The stats would be upgraded either with Sephiroth & Sephiroth Choice Gems or with new gems that do the same thing as Sephiroth & Sephiorth Choice Gems, but are meant only got g13+ equipment (to promote users going to that level bracket and farming these gems).
      • Poll Option 2 - "The items should use the Blessing stat system and be upgraded with Red Honors/Blue Tears."
        • This is pretty self-explanatory... It would work like the current level 11 item system.
  • When can we see a preview of the changes?
    • We will try and keep everyone updated as we reach various milestones in adding the new items.
    • We will still be working on the new items during the above mentioned poll, just not the stat/upgrading aspect.

G13 accessories should also be paired when G13 equipment is updated

Well I'm guessing It will most likely end up with the poll coming out with Blessing on top, but as powerplant says i think we need new gems either way. People would just start stacking 100's of RH/BT pouches now, and when the new gears come out they just gotta farm the gears, and never set foot in GC again.

Don’t be so sure, there’s already 8 votes that will Be removed and not be counted because they voted on multiple accounts for that option.... 😒

Hi I play in both servers recently though a little busy in rl,I think it is too silent for Tri server for so long a time,it also needs new contents to update,so I suggest let g13 equipments also released in Tri server when they are ready.Thanks

I think any new armour should use a Blessing like system with single gem upgrades. Trying to get perfect stats on an item can be really frustrating.

Makes sense for jewelry or items in abundant supply but to "lose" hard to get items because of crappy stats is extra annoying.

They should not use rh/bt though, these should remain G11 specific.

A new gem set or other upgrade system would be better. 

Maybe have the blacksmith upgrade G13 items using combinations of materials.

Give some use for all the metal/wood/gemstone farmed and create a bit of a market like G12 allowing lower levels to benefit and make some leni.

It's been 15 days. Why is there no latest news?

As the article said, it would be automatically closed (which it appears it has). Tomorrow, we will be looking over the votes and removing the votes of the player who voted more than once. We should have the results posted by sometime tomorrow.

The final result of the poll (after removing the votes that voted on multiple alternate accounts) was 52% in favor of option 1 and 48% in favor of option 2. The method of upgrading the new items will be option 1, "The items should have four stats, but be easier to get "Perfect Stats" and be upgraded with Sephiroth & Sephiorth Choice gems or new gems that do the same thing.".

 

That being said, we have decided that while there are four stats that will be able to be added to each equipment item for these sets the following will also be true:

  • Creating a "perfect stat" item will be easy, and in some cases a guarantee (we are limiting the number of stats available for these items so you don't get stats that are considered useless... for example HP regen).
  • We've decided to allow users to use Sephiroth/Sephiroth Choice gems on the new equipment as well as new gems that will be released with the equipment.
    • The original Sephiroth/Sephiroth Choice Gems will be able to upgrade these items (level 13), but at a reduced upgrade rate. The reason for this is so the Seph/SC market is able to be maintained throughout the game (as it always has been) they will also not be able to used once you reach a certain stat level (such as how Jr gems work).
    • The new gems will work like Seph/SC gems, but have a higher upgrade rate when being using on level 13 items.
