Greetings AOV!

It's been almost 2 months since we have re-released the shard and we have been busy setting things back up.

Please continue to report any bugs or issues you experience and we will do our best to address and fix them up. A couple of bug fixes did not make it in for this update but we have added them to the todo list for next update.

Here's a list of the newest additions and fixes for this update:

Cherry Blossom Festival (Yearly from April 1st to May 15th)

Head to the town of Zento in the Tokuno Islands to take part in the festival.

Treasures of Tokuno

- Increased drop rate of Treasures of Tokuno between April 1st to May 15th
- Leurocian's Mempo of Fortune and Yomotsu Elder's Sleeves as rare lesser treasure drops
- 10 new one charge exotic lesser pigment drops
- Turn in 10 lesser treasures for one of the 10 new greater metal pigments

Cherry Blossom Puzzles

- Head to Zento and try one of the Cherry Blossom puzzles. Win lesser Treasures of Tokuno as prizes as well as blossoms for the community collection.
- Gives a higher chance of getting Leurocian's Mempo of Fortune or the Yomotsu Elder's sleeves as a prize
- 1 in 50 chance of getting the puzzle exclusive shadow veil mempo!

Blossom Collection

Collect different blossoms and turn them in for new prizes, such as decorative flower vines, costumes of tokuno creatures, and new equipment!

Be sure to turn your blossoms in with the same character if you racking up points. Points are character bound, not account bound!

Collecting blossoms can be done several ways
- Complete the quests that can be found at the Zento bank
- Kill monsters in the three Tokuno based dungeons (Fan Dancer's Dojo, Yomotsu Mines or the Citadel)
- Escort festival goers to Zento
- Complete the Cherry Blossom Puzzles for a chance to get blossoms as a reward
- Sometimes spawned naturally around the ground around Tokuno (Not in dungeons)

Quests
- Search the lands for the terrible Niddhogg. A random person in the top attackers list will get its head upon death. Deliver the head to the NPC in Zento for a reward.
- Festival escorts can be found around the Tokuno islands. Bring them to Zento for a reward.
- An NPC in Zento will give you a quest to kill a specific list of lesser monsters that are found in Tokuno.
- An NPC in Zento will send you on a quest to find stolen statues. Return them for a reward.

Dungeon Changes
- Some spawn changes have been changed or cleaned up
- All monsters have a chance to drop blossoms in your pack upon their death (Only during festival season from April 1st to May 15th).
- Your luck will influence your odds of getting a higher quality blossom which is worth more turn-in points.

Stygian Abyss Releases

We are currently setting up the Underworld as the first dungeon from the Stygian Abyss expansion. We will release a more detailed post when the Underworld is open to players.

When the Underworld is opened, players can experience the following:
- New underworld stealables to collect
- Brand new UOSA monsters with new abilities
- Monsters may drop a lucky coin. Test your luck at the Fountain of Fortune
- Test your mind and reflexes with a puzzle at the Experimental Room. Solving the puzzle will earn you some unique decorations such as large wall banners, stalagmites and tapestries

This is part one of the Underworld's release but should give players a lot to explore while we work on the second portion.

Other fixes
- Shadow Knight abilities revised. Tracking is no longer necessary when fighting them.
- The old 'Vader' spawn has returned. It is located under Buccaneer's Den in Felucca in the tunnels (Find the green vortex) and now has a cursed pirate theme. The spawn strength and boss hit points has been reduced and the summons changed slightly.
- Gauntlet spawners have been fixed and restored to their original state
- Stealable artifact bug should now be fixed
- Fixed an issue with mobiles losing their connection to spawners
- Revised target switching algorithm to be less harsh against tamers
- Peerless key timers have been extended to 7 days. The timers have also been changed to show in days, minutes and seconds instead of only in seconds.
- Fixed a few issues with the quest system
- A quest is no longer needed to collect pigment from acid slimes. Upon death of the slime, a random person in the top damagers' list will receive a bottle of pigment in their pack.
- Fixed a bug with the quest system where the reward would be lost if you were over weighed. The item now drops in your bankbox if you cannot hold it in your pack, or it will drop to your feet if it cannot drop to the bankbox.
- Something really annoying and visually offensive courtesy of the Red Squirrel department of Utter Nonsense (April 1st)

Wow, that sounds great. It will be interesting exploring the underworld. The peerless keys decay increase is nice too. But... no more random artifact deed drop from 'Vader'? Sad

The random artifact deeds will still drop. The Vader spawn has been revised to the "Blight Beard" spawn. The drop rates have stayed the same, just the monsters have been reworked to suit a different theme and to tone them down:

- Vader replaced with Blight Beard. His hit points, resists and overall power has been greatly reduced and his abilities have been reworked. Still drops the random artifact deed as a reward as well as the gold explosion and stat scrolls

- The sith lords are now cursed buccaneers. Different resists and reworked stats. Still drops the silver tokens.

- The dark jedi knights are now phantom blades. These are probably the most reworked. They are buffed up versions of spectral armor with the ability to pierce, paralyze and bleed.

I should be able to finish setting up the underworld this weekend to release to players.
