Complete Update Notes - The Tinkerer and More!

Has anyone ever time-traveled without messing something up? All the Tinkerer wants is to salvage the future, but she’s arrived in our time as a 12-year-old girl! Create a Tinkerer character and level up quickly to bring back her former strength and earn a plethora of prizes along the way. The most dedicated Tinkerers can take on the tough Race to Level 40 event for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab and a smorgasbord of in-game items. When the leveling cools down, head over to the Dragon Vault for a ton of new costumes, hairstyles, and faces for all characters as well as some exciting additions to the Dragon Egg!

New Character – The Tinkerer

The Tinkerer has traveled back in time from a future tainted by darkness and strife to alter the course of fate and strike down the baddies that have slaughtered the Gold Dragon and countless heroes. Unfortunately, a miscalculation during time travel preparations has left the Tinkerer trapped in her 12-year-old body. Play as the Tinkerer to fire long-range weapons like cannons and bubble blasters and command a robot bodyguard, gobs of sentient goo, and even an army of mecha-quackums to knock enemies clear into the next century!

Events – The Tinkerer Sprint

Take things slow and get in-game items as you level up at your own pace.

Mega 06-20-2012 11:26 AM

I like they finally got the same PWR system as SEA, that way we can level up even faster :)

BoredomKillz 06-20-2012 11:40 AM

but then once youre at the cap farming becomes kinda lame once youre out of pwr >:

Mega 06-20-2012 12:09 PM

I'm not even close to level 40 on any of my characters :(

I wonder if it'll stay from level 1~39 or go up to 49 once we get 50 cap.

LiLMewmew 06-20-2012 01:20 PM

Is the patch done? Time to come out of hiatus ... :py27:

Mega 06-20-2012 02:49 PM

Hopefully soon~ I want to get to work on "Tinkerering" lol.

All servers are now open.

NOTE: To receive the free Character Expansion Slot, please log into the character you have designated as your main character from the website. You will then need to enter the Dragon Vault and receive the item from the 'Gift Box'. Once received, you'll be able to create an extra character.

LiLMewmew 06-20-2012 06:11 PM

I didn't get the free slot. *sends ticket raging* >=(

edit: what happens if i select the main character now? do i get it still?

Lilica 06-20-2012 10:28 PM

They fix all the bugs but the one keeping me out of my account e.e. But Engineer is funner then I thought it would be, so I'm not feeling too bad.

LiLMewmew 06-21-2012 12:24 PM

So I found out... oldest character creation is where my extra character slot would be.

I made an Engineer on Argenta ... IGN: MewBerry
Higher level alchemist looks kinda fun with all those summons...

Are you guys still on Argenta ? :py56:
