We had a big update this weekend. Three new missions went in, plus one mini-mission which has replaced the “Talk to the Captain of the Guards” mission as an intro. The next time you are in Hopitan, you’re going to find that you can’t use the north gate until you do this mini-mission – apologies, but it should be really short and easy (it starts in the Hopitan Guardhouse, in East Hopitan).
As for the other three missions, one is low-mid level and the other two are mid-level (around 50). I won’t give away any more details – I’m sure you’ll find them soon enough :)
battle screen layout improvements
some new graphics (some models and tiles, and more to come)
Tons of new battle actions (just over 100!), some only appear at higher skill levels
improved player market: you can see a summary of other prices when you post something for sale
Misc tab added to equipment management screen so you can actually move medkits between characters
chat is now continent-wide instead of local to the town or area you are in
More missions are in the works, and we’ll be adding more areas very soon. We are also planning a number of new features that should start to appear in the near future.
