Humans

Wuxia / Swordsman Wuxia are the warriors of the human race. They are experts in melee weapons such as; swords, pole arms and fighting gauntlets. Emphasizing strength over all other attributes, Wuxia are the frontline fighters in group quests and serve as the backbone of infantry units during territorial battles.

Fashi / Mage Fashi are the spell casters. Though they can also carry light physical weapons, they rely heavily on magic and invocation to achieve their objectives and are quite effective against monsters with similar attributes. They provide good cover for their companions in quests and act as rear support in battles. Also, they absorb skills and can even develop their own set of abilities as they level up.

Wingkind

Yumang / Archer Yumang are the fighters and guardians for the Yu or Wing race, those born with the natural ability to fly in Perfect World. They employ ranged weapons such as long bows, crossbows and slingshots. Since these weapons are more effective at a distance, Yumang also carry backup melee weapons, though strength is not their biggest asset. It is their excellent dexterity that makes them good shots.

Yuling / Mystic Yuling or clerics are the healers in Perfect World. They can use staffs or a light weapon for combat, their primary calling is to support others in quests. Yulings serve as the medics during battles.

Beastkind

Yaoshou / Werebeast Yaoshou are fighter Werebeasts who specialize in melee combat with heavy weapons such as battle axes and war hammers. They can also take on animal form to increase their fighting abilities. They are the tankers both in quest and battle, and serve as the power chargers against most opponents. All Yaoshou are male.

Yaojing / Fairy Yaojing or Fairies are the female counterparts of the Yaoshou, though they use different techniques. They use magic and can change into an animal, the fox, to further their capabilities. They are attractive and charming characters that can tantalize its foes and allies. They can also employ pets which are of great help, especially in combat; since this doubles the Yaojing’s fighting capacity. Their lighter stature, though, makes them quicker and more agile.

The Game Development Association of the Philippines (GDAP) is holding costume play (cosplay) competition opened to participants portraying characters from any video game.

Characters can come from games of any gaming platform, including PC, PlayStation or Xbox, Nintendo platforms and handheld gaming devices.

Ranulf Goss, International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Philippine Chapter chairman, said the competition highlights gamers’ endearment to their favorite video game characters.

The cosplay competition is part of GDAP’s Game Craft, which also highlights a series of business sessions and classes for developers and artists during the entire BPO Summit.

For the past three years game development has been one of the latest highlights of the BPO Summit, largely due to a number of outsourced projects that local game development companies have been receiving.

GDAP has been promoting game development as one of the sunshine industries in the Philippines.

The competition will be part of the BPO Summit at the Crowne Plaza, Mandaluyong City in on December 2.

The competition will be divided into three categories. Best Male, Best Female, and Best Armor/Mecha cosplay.

Scores will be based on Accuracy, Craftsmanship and characterization. Winners in each category will receive P5,000. However, a grand champion will be chosen and will take home P10,000.

Goss is the first president of the GDAP when it was formed a few years ago. He was succeeded by Flipside Games President Gabriel Dizon.

Meanwhile, the GDAP event during the BPO Summit will highlight the visit of Chris Natsuume, producer of the high popular first person game Far Cry.

Natsuume will speak on game development and will also be one of the judges during the cosplay competition.

Get ready to embark on a new adventure in Nostale!

e-Games brings a new gaming title that will give more than usual dose of action and adventure found in most MMORPG! This new game will let you enjoy the benefits of meaningful interaction with friends and fellow gamers!

Nostale, or the Tale of the Nomad of Silver Spirit, is about the adventures of characters from the continent of Eastmile. The game is built on the concept of growth and ownership, featuring cute and loveable characters depicted in Manhwa (comics/print cartoons) style art.

What’s so special about this game? Plenty.

The game’s quest system called Main Quest is story based. The story line is classified into Acts, which progresses into a number of scenes as the players advance through the story line.

Players start off in the game as Adventurers until they reach a certain level to promote their characters to become one of the 3 main classes: (1) Swordsman (2) Archer and (3) Sorcerer. Characters are further upgraded in terms of skills and abilities through the use of Specialist Cards, which are attainable in quests.

One of the more unique features of the game is the Nosmate companion system. Players can capture Pets and Non Playing Characters (NPCs), which they can control to help them in their quests.

Players can likewise have their own Mini Land, or a place where they can put up houses and other objects. The Mini Land provides players with opportunities to socialize with other gamers, as well as train their Nosmates.

Aside from bringing the game to the local shores, e-Games will likewise serve as the payment gateway for Nostale, through the e-Points cards. By purchasing these game cards, players will be able to purchase Nostale Cash, the currency used to buy special items from the in-game item shop.

“I’m really excited to introduce Nostale to Philippine players through the partnership with IP e-Games, the biggest gaming company in the country. What pleases me the most is that we can now give Philippine players a chance to meet up with players all over the world in our casual RPG game,” said Kevin Song, CEO of Servex Co., Ltd., publishers of the game’s Global service.

“Our PH gamers can expect great in-game and live events for Nostale. Rest assured that e-Games will take good care and give its full support to the Nostale PH community,” said Sonny Carlos, e-Games Product Manager for Nostale Philippines.

So, do you feel like you’re up for a grand adventure? Make sure to join Nostale this November 2008! Visit http://nostale.e-games.com.ph for more information!

1. What is the new subscription rate for new Chaos?

To be announced

2. What will happen to our accounts after server merge?
2.a. If your account has a total of 9 characters in all three (3) servers (Baldur, Freya and Tyr) and 300 items stored in Kafra, no need to worry; everything will be copied to the new server.

2.b If your account has more than 9 characters (collectively within three servers) but less than or equal to 18 characters, your account will be split into two (2).

2.c If your account has more than 18 characters, your account will be split into three(3).

2.d If your account has more than 300 items but less than 601 stored inside the Kafra storage within the 3 servers, your account will be split into 2.
Example: Freya kafra 300 items, Baldur Kafra 300 items, Tyr 0 item = 2 split accounts
2.e If your account has more than 600 items stored in kafra in 3 servers, your account will be split into 3.
Example: Freya Kafra 299 items, Baldur Kafra 300 items, Tyr Kafra 100 items = 3 split accounts

3. How to avoid split accounts?
3.a. It is very important that the total number of characters in one (1) account DO NOT exceed 9 characters all across three (3) servers (Baldur, Freya and Tyr) and the total number of items stored in Kafra in three (3) servers (Baldur, Freya and Tyr) do not exceed 300.
*ADVISORY: We advise everyone to please delete ALL unnecessary characters or sell useless items in your account. There should be a total of 9 characters and 300 items stored in your Kafra all across three (3) servers (Baldur, Freya and Tyr) before the server merge.

4. If I have split account how do I recover it?
4.a. If your account is split, the original account (your original username) will contain the primary characters (the order of priority is Baldur->Freya->Tyr). Split account username will get a suffix 01 or 02 with same password as their original account.
Example:
original username: ragnarok
split account username1 : ragnarok01
split account username 2: ragnarok02

5. What if I have the same character names? Can I change it?
5.a. Characters with the same name will have a suffix added on their names. All characters in Baldur will keep their original name.
Ex - CharKoTo_tyr , CharKoTo_fre

5.b. Characters with a suffix added in their name have 11 days (Nov 15 to Nov 26) to change their names through “Change name” button in the char select screen. After 12 days, the Change Name function will be disabled. You can only change names once.

6. What will happen to my game RoK Points?
6.a. You will keep your RoK points if your account is not split.

6.b. In case your account is split, your primary account will retain the Rok points (the order of priority is Baldur->Freya->Tyr).

6.c. All 2nd and 3rds Accounts will NOT get any Rok Points.

7. Meaning if I’m from FREYA or TYR, I will not get any RoK points in my second account if my account splits?
7.a. Technically, yes. That’s why we encourage everyone to make sure that the total number of characters in your account (in all servers) is nine (9) and Kafra items at 300 pcs or less. This will ensure that your account will not get split and that account will have all the Rok points and game time that you have stored up.

8. What about the gametime for my 2nd or 3rd accounts?
All 2nd or 3rd accounts due to split accounts will have 2 hours game time.

9. Do I keep my Kafra pass?
All Kafra pins will be reset. All you have to do is set a new kafra password.

10. If I’m an Acolyte or Priest, do I keep the saved warp points?
All saved warp points will be deleted. This affects all jobs that have the Warp Portal skill (Acolyte, High Acolyte, Priest, High Priest, Monk, Champion, and Super Novice).

11. How about our quests? Should I start all over again?
11.a. All completed quests by your characters will not be affected, so if the quest is not repeatable, you will not be able to do it again after the merge:
Example: Godly Seals, Sign Quest, etc

11.b. Players should still be able to finish incomplete quests after the merge, but please read the advisory below.

* ADVISORY. We advise everyone who has on-going quests to finish it before the server maintenance on Nov 14 to avoid problems.

12. Our guild owns an Agit in Prontera that has an Economy of 75 and Defense of 100.
12.a Economy and safeguard of all agits will reset back to 1.

12.b All Agit ownership will reset (WOE1 and 2). Players will have to take over Agits again once the server is up after the merge.

13. How about our guilds? I heard that there will be a reset guild or something?

13.a. One of the unique features of this merge is the purging of all guilds. Meaning, guilds will be deleted and refreshed. This is to avoid technical issues and guild bugs that happened on the previous mergers.

13.b. Also, all emperiums will be deleted during the maintenance.

13.c. But don’t worry, once the server is up, the biggest race in the history of Philippine Ragnarok online will commence. “The Ragnarok Amazing Guild Race” will automatically start.

Please click here for more details.

14. I’m the top Alchemist in Freya, do I keep my rank?
14.a All ranking systems will be reset: Alchemist Rankings, Blacksmith Rankings, Taekwon Rankings, Aldebaran Race Track Rankings and Izlude Arena Rankings

15. Hey, are inventory items and items in my cart safe?
Yes. You can store your items in your cart. Items in your inventory should also remain intact. We also recommend that you take screenshots of your most valuable items.

16. Will my main account remain linked to my MyLU account? Will my split accounts be automatically linked to my MyLU account?

Your main account will remain linked to your MyLU account. Split accounts will not be automatically linked. It is recommended that you change your password and keep it to yourself before the merge to ensure that you will be the one to link your split accounts to your MyLU account.

Wan Luan’s Declaration of War against the Soulless:

A year of world-historical events is coming to an end. A year of great decisions is approaching. In this grave period I speak to you, Heroes of the Perfect World, as the representatives of the Beast, Wing and Human. In addition, the entire Jade Empire should also review what has happened and take note of the decisions required by the present and the future.

The Humans, Wingkind, Beastkind and its soldiers work and fight today not only for themselves and their own age, but also for many generations to come. A historical task of unique dimensions has been entrusted to us by the Creator that we are now obliged to carry out.

Our opponents should not deceive themselves. In the two thousand years of recorded history, our people have never been more determined and united than today. The Lord of the universe has been so generous to us in recent years that we bow in gratitude before a Providence that has permitted us to be members of such a great nation. We thank Him that along with those in earlier and coming generations of the Empire, our deeds of honor may also be recorded in the undying book of Jade Empire’s history!

After four years, game publisher Amped Games has finally announced the next iteration of their first massively-multiplayer online game Tantra.

Tantra II is set to start beta testing this November, in time for the company’s annual Amped Fest on November 21.

Tantra II is also developed by HanbitSoft. It will have the same eight tribes from the original but with more character attributes.

The maps in Tantra II have also been enlarged. Maps from the first game are also ported in Tantra II but are given bigger and better details. One new map is the Marana Dungeon where players have to eliminate all monsters in it before getting in-game certificates they could use to trade potions.

The Marana Dungeon is divided to two parts: one is for characters with levels 30 to 90, and the other is for 100-and-above character levels.

An additional feature in Tantra II is the Mail Box where players can send in-game items to other players. The Mail Box is accessible even if the player is not online.

Just like its predecessor, Tantra II will also be a free-to-play game.

Tantra Product Manager Ria Pineda told INQUIRER.NET that they are expecting new players to sign up for Tantra II but there should be more coming from existing and former players of the first Tantra.

She also said that even when Tantra II goes commercial they will retain the original game.

“We have a lot of loyal players in Tantra I so we don’t plan to turn off the game servers until everyone has moved to the new game,” she said.

Pineda added that despite new in-game and graphical features of Tantra II, it only requires the same computer configuration as the original. It can run on a Pentium III-powered processor, 128 megabytes memory and 64 MB video card memory.

Flyffers, get ready for one wild ride! The lands of Roika will be getting its latest and greatest patch to date! V12, the Forsaken Tower.

So to whet every Flyff player’s appetite out there of what’s to come, here is a sneak peak of what’s coming with Flyff’s latest patch!

Lord System
Accessible only to Master Classes, after vying for the position, the community will then vote on who is deserving to reign over them. Once a leader has been selected, they will have power to set bonus xp events, the power to increase drop rates and even give amazing buffs to any player he chooses. The Lord even gets to don the regal Lord’s set during their regime to ensure that he or she will be a cut above the rest.

Forsaken Tower
There’s a new tower filled with new monsters and quests exclusive only for the 2nd job classes (Knight, Blade, Psykeeper, Elementor, Bill Poster, Ring Master, Jester, and Ranger)

Monster inside this creepy tower ranges from levels 62 up to 120! Adventurers beware, only the strong can survive a trip down these dark halls and live to tell about them!

Secret Rooms!
It has been said that the Forsaken Tower has secret rooms within that hold amazing prizes for the brave team that is able to find and cut their way through to one of these rooms. It has been rumored to grant whoever enters the ability to influence Madrigal itself and control over Roika’s lands.

On November 5, Level Up! will introduce to you a new and limited promotional kart called the Secret Agent Kart. This kart will only be available in the CK Shopping Mall from November 5, 2008, 12:00nn to November 12, 2008, 12:00nn only.
