An Update to Exploring

another thing that will make life easier

When exploring, players no longer need to click on an item they encounter to collect it. 

This change has been put in place to make things a little less tedious when adventuring around Novilar.

Happy hunting!

An update to step regeneration!

Apparently today is the day for updates :P

Regular players now get 3 step regeneration per 5 minutes, those players who have professions that increase step regeneration still get a +1 to this (4).

Subscribers now get a +4 to normal step regeneration.

It is hoped this will help keep players entertained while we work on adding more features to the site.

An update to pet naming.

Another small but significant improvement.

Pets can now have spaces and special characters in their names!

This change will hopefully make your lives easier with regards to giving your pets the fancy names they deserve!

A small but useful change to crafting

Let's hope this makes your life easier!

A subtle, yet useful change has been made to the crafting system!

When using the recipe book to craft items, you will be brought back to the page that particular recipe was on, rather than being bumped back to page one every time you craft an item. While this change is not a big one, it is hoped that it will save players a little bit of time and a lot of aggrivation.

Enjoy!

Price Reduction on Max Energy Bars

Other energy bars are taking a small vacation...

Max Energy Bars (items that replenish all of your steps and can be found in the crystal exchange) have been reduced in price from three crystals to one crystal.

The other two energy bars, that replenish 50 and 25 steps  have been removed from the crystal shop for now, but may return on other parts of the site at a later date. 

This is the first step in some price restructuring that will likely be going on over the next few months.

 

Have fun getting out there and exploring!

Crafting Change and Bug Fix

Temporal rifts and waiting times, oh my!

Crafting equipment in the alchemy lab no longer has a cooldown time!

We decided to make this change because players are already somewhat limited in crafting by the volume of items they can scavange and buy in a day, it was felt that we did not need to limit you further. 

That said, if you happen to spam the craft button rather than waiting for the page to load between clicks, you may find that you are not getting all the experience points you should, so please wait for the page to load between clicks.

On another note, the small temporal rift that has been plauging Novilar for quite some time has finally been repaired - meaning that announcements and notifications will now show the correct amount of time has passed since the event occurred. :)
