Past Trickster
 
Well, this thread is dedicated to the Trickster that once was.

It isn't a rant, or bring back (insert item/skill/zone) type of thread or a new trickster is (insert bad word here), those just get into trolling and flaming. And there are a LOT of them already.

Here we just post screenshots or stuff about things that once were, now they aren't anymore on Trickster Online.

I'll start with something nobody saw on eTO. It's the old Megalopolis and old Oops!

So, without further ado

Old Megalopolis city center. It was a building of the Broadcasting Company. Secondly, a Card Girl shop in one of the corners of the town. You can see there were 2 of them in the left and right parts of the town.

XD I wasn't trying to troll or anything, just thought it would be nice to have old stuff back instead of coming up with completely new stuff (since the developer's are so keen on recycling anyway).

Anyways, kTO started the closed beta on winter 2002, and after 3 trials started open beta around April 2003. I began playing this game at the end of July when 100 Day event just ended and Korean Independence Day(8.15) event was going on.

kTO can be divided to 3 different parts. First is pre-0.91 patch(~Jan 2005) days, when as I mentioned earlier we had a very different skill system (it's almost as if it was an entirely different game). Then came around Trickster AD in 2005, when option Equipments (custom, craft, ultimate, etc), mature compounding and refinement systems were updated. Then 2 years later, Trickster Revolution started servicing on seperate server provided by Ntreev (before this it was on major game publishing company called Netmarble).

For the next couple of months you could play 2 different versions of Tricksters (AD on Netmarble and R on Ntreev), but AD quickly and abruptly closed down. This was right after when the developers had a meeting with future updates on AD server so people were really upset...and I quit plaing TO at this point and didn't play it again until last year XD

Anyways, it's good to see that TO is loved by people all over the world. It's a very special game to me, because I literally played this game all throughout my teenage years (I really should stop playing games anymore XD) Please share your own memories of TO!! I'd love to hear how eTO got started...

(old path to Relics gate)


Here are some things I remember from pre-AD days:

1. There were 8 skills in total for each type for each level(so 32 skills and 8 maximum TM lv). Some were learnable to all classes while some were type-specific. Majority of them were physical attack skills or stat-buff skills, so this opened up multiple ways to build your character. (For example, AP sheep or MA cat)

2. Spells were usually used from spell cards. There were some spell type skills that magic-types could learn but since spell cards were so strong, they weren't used as widely (but still used a lot, like AoE skill that were for magic type only).

3. TM exp was gained not by killing monsters but by taking type-related actions.
i.e. To raise Power-type TM you needed to attack or use power-type skills. For charm-type TM you needed to get a 'miss' from a monster or use charm-type skills. For magic type, spell cards or magic-type skills. For Sense type, drill, get block or use sense-type skills. Because of this, people started grinding at a very low level (getting hit by Golden Moles or using low level spell cards againt Koma).

4. There was a period where You'd get 100% block if you had 100 LK stats. For this some people went Pure LK and Clover of Luck(Lucky Seven, which was learnable to all types then) was a must have skill. Because of this people were able to hunt Spicy Dragon(lv 300 back then) at a relatively low level.


I'll post more when I find more stuff....

it would be cool to see an English server with the really old stuff. c:

Oh wow...I wish TO went back in Time...D:

Recette 07-29-2011 02:30 PM

Well, between the old maps and the current ones, at least from the ones shown above, I prefer the current ones.

The old way to get TM experience seems very interesting, however - reminds me a bit of the process of leveling your guardian egg.

And I would like to see some skills that could be used by every class, independently of how bad they are. On this note, why on earth using a gun requires a skill (making all MS guns from prizes, boxes, etc, useless as I do not pretend to make a sense) while swords and other equips do not?

I love the bunny image on the MyView screenshot.

Same here. New maps over old maps any day.

I do too :)

Most of them are surprisingly the skills that still remain in the game. For example, among power types, Shockwave, Armor Breaker, Adrenalin(!), Bull's Eye were learnable by all classes, hence the popularity of pure AP sheeps (she has the fastest attack motions out of all characters).

Magic type skills that were common to all classes were Blood Change (lets you use HP when casting spells), Nike's Trumphet(=Mist of Mana), Power Stone (=Summon Builer).

Sturdy Shield, Dodge Master, Entrancing Wink, Sticky Rice(Reduces Enemie's DX, kind of like Mana Web) were common Charm type skills. Titan's Descendents(=Shuriken Master), Heavy Carrier, Bionic Lens(=Sixth Sense),Clover of Luck(=Lucky Seven) were the common Sense type skills.

Pretty useful skills, right? :D

Sumer 07-29-2011 09:12 PM

Yes, those global skills really seem useful! I know i could need some charm skills :no1:

Parudy, thanks for the screenshots and info! I wasn't talking about you when i said some people troll for the old stuff!
It's the same way others troll for the new stuff, always wishfully thinking that new = better.

And point #3 and #4 on your list are so intriguing, especially #3 and skills from cards directly, that seems so interesting!

Old memories

You asked for them Parudy ^^
Found this minimap, ooh the memories haha. Altough the starting zones were so different and so many of them, something like a garden with bushes cutout like drills (like in SE forest), a lonely beach, a ship. I also remember Ghost Blue for noobies, and talking for hours in mycamps and partying 'till we dropped dead (or we were healed by friendly dragons). also equips like that matryoshka doll for noobs, haha, relaxing times!

You know, i kinda grew up with trickster too, and i always love to come here for my childhood memories. Although i now play other stuff more + i don't agree on all the ways current Trickster is going, it still is a special game for me too.

The old tutorial was pretty cool, but things are much more better and streamlined now. I guess nothing could ever replace the experience I had with Trickster the first time though, good times.

More Old Illustrations! I really miss this style--although some NPCs stayed the same since the beginning, like French Maid or Al Hauri.

Sumer 07-30-2011 11:08 PM

Oho those are so different from what we know now. I mean their faces. I think they are more Trickster-like because their nose... is missing, just like in the game. The lion looks like someone i know lol (but that person has a nose). So cute!

Very cool stuff parudy! :hug:

parudy88 07-31-2011 02:56 PM

:) *hugs you back* glad you liked them!

These are the very first loading screens that were used in game. They were eliminated when Trickster AD started (unfortunately I couldn't find them in original sizes). I really really miss these.....

(Though my sis HATES the old tutorial because it's slow and can't exit without knowing that "Esc" is the Exit button, lol!)

And I think I did save some of the old "wallpapers".

This isn't new to me or it doesn't surprise me at all. I saw the old kTO last 3 years ago and so are the old kTO screenshots from an old player's site.

Those spirit of fire, ice and lightning cards, what were they used for? o-o

They were spell cards usable by all classes. They were called (weakest to strongest) Spirit of Light, Spirit of Ice, Spirit of Thunder, Spirit of Fire, Spirit of Wind, and Touch of an Angel for the cure card. Each card except for Spirit of Light had two upgrades--"Gae" and "Jin".

Sumer 08-05-2011 12:04 AM

It's so nice to see all this stuff about old trickster and people interested in them!

Well, here are my finds:

1. People really enjoying a tea and being friendly (also having the old basic amigo pet)
2. Megalopolis before Eventgarden+Rosegarden+Castle
3. Gate of Caballa Relics with the lion casting some skill and monsters on map
