not a fan of the new fl rules... but meh we'll see how it pans out. The dismantling buff is nice, though, and mana shield sounds intriguing.

but on the other hand, you'll have the level 100+'s alt-characters with streamlined pvp pwnage builds who can whoop up permanently on all comers simply because their build can't be beaten at that level.

Great so it appears I'll be stuck in div 9 now since I'm in that level range. It had better even the system out, tired of it being impossible to win in any division against people 15+ levels higher >_>

Yay! Now I can try out PvP, since the game decided to bump me into division 12 for no reason. >_>

Lol, Fine, your worries are over.

...Also, they improved lube drop rate? Iirc I was getting a pretty decent stream of lube when we did the inventor run. Improve the drop rate of DRAGON CRYSTALS, gdit.

I'm worried about the changes to Goncourt too, I mean 10k/book exchange is ridiculous. This means that 100k is only going to get us 10 book exchanges (as compared to 100 in the past). Book prices are going to soar >.> And goodbye Bookworm title, no way I'm ever going to complete that now.

Well that's only for the exp/craft books...and exp books aren't tradable in the first place anyways...so only craft books would be affected...otherwise I liked this patch overall too but I've always been on and off on Atlantica.
