Deimos and I have decided we would like to try running a Boss Spawn Event for you all today.

We would like to know: which bosses do you want to fight?

We will update you with the chosen map and time it will start once we know which bosses to use, and if players will participate.

Shen mo, Def bosses and some icy bosses too considering there's players high enough for them.

Cidopuck
May 30th, 2014, 12:17 PM
Due to how our lists are organized, we will need specific names for each boss.

Sercova
May 30th, 2014, 12:17 PM
Hmmm, here's an idea. Spawn every boss? One after the other, lowest level to highest so everyone no matter what level gets a chance to fight a boss.
Obviously this'll depend on how long you and Deimos are ingame but I think it'd be nice ^_^

Do you have bosses from Icy dungeon available? if not then its Shenmo, Vicious Fist, True General Wei. Or if you could provide us with a list of what bosses you can spawn then maybe we can better decide?

The list we have for spawning bosses is quite disorganized. All the bosses are mixed in (seemingly at random) with the regular mobs. As we spawn the bosses we will be updating and highlighting which ones are bosses and opposed to normal mobs. Basically as we go along our spawn event the list will become better organized for future events.

RagingAsura
May 30th, 2014, 12:28 PM
1. True General Wei
2. General Wei
3. Shen Mo
4. North Sea Queen (Icy dungeon boss to get the nice epithet)

And the above bosses from Revol1

If not then only likely the CC bosses are of any value, maybe also the SRS boss that gives the Declining Sun Epi, but thats not really important as anyone can get that with a good team/league.

Just spoke to Deimos about this error because I was getting it too.
Turns out that they spawned a certain mob and it has caused this error. They'll be restarting the server shortly (and the PvP event)

Cidopuck
May 30th, 2014, 01:00 PM
Hello,

Currently we believe it was just one of the bosses that created the error, other Icy Bosses seemed to work. We have made a note of which one.

We are looking into this issue as much as we can. Any information from our userbase would be very much appreciated in helping us determine the nature of this issue, such as if you were able to get the game client working again and how.

We will keep you all updated on this matter.

Thank you, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

When they reset the server, rates go back down to x1 base rates. resetting the rates means they have brought them back up to where they are usually.

Yeah the thread title states "impromptu" and he also stated that hes gathering in hefei. Why so upset anyway? they are testing the tools and abilities, next time it will be better organized and more time for players to prepare.

I have a suggestion next time for boss spawn events, please spawn in random maps as well as random locations in each map, because spawning at the same point means the guy with the biggest wep will KS all the time. This is to make it fair for everyone.

Unfortunately, this doesn't seem possible. As you may have noticed when I was spamming bears, pigs and hens, we can only spawn enemies to our current location.

This is pretty standard for every game, not just 9D. It would be cool if we could just load up a stack of bosses to spawn and set them each to their own map and coordinates.

A bit like a Hide & Seek event but your reward for finding the GM is being greeted with a boss to kill. I like it

Yes! thats the idea LOL. You can courier to those other maps and spawn them at random locations. Use this in conjuction with your ingame announcements giving us hints as to which maps you are spawning.

We only spawned so many because the GM tools are crazy hard to read and navigate. As for why he kept respawning...we don't know.

Could you and Deimos both do the spawns with speed cap? Just grab a bunch of slotted gear and throw speed in them, and eat a miracle speed tonic from the OBT package. All of that mixed in with the CoS buff should hopefully allow you to run around quick enough to get decently spaced spawns in.

I think a few places around Hefei would be best, since the other maps people might not be able to play until someone kills the bosses for them.

What was wrong with him that he did not drop anything. Somehow he's the same as hermits from BvW warrs. They lose hp easily until they are 14% hp. After that dropping his hp is a real pain in the...and when he dies still nothing happens! Make a list with al the bugs people send to you and that you find in game and send it to devs. Ask them to tell you what bugs they have fixed!!!

I think u should spawn low level bosses (Def boss,HP boss, General Wei, Shen mo) in gathering ground for white clans and high level bosses in the gathering ground for black clans...and everyone can enjoy the event xD

Jedaii
May 31st, 2014, 07:35 AM
except for the General Wei bug, it wasnt a bad event.

What I would suggest is to spread out the bosses in the spawn location because High levels are hogging the bosses. As there is no way you can KS a LM boss at FC-HM lvls vs Hermit/PS players.

Overall, it was good to have such an event and have GMs in game. Next should be something in BP :D

GM should spawn more bosses in 1 time so ppl got more chance to get the icy ones.

I wish they would remove the +25 level restrictions on world bosses.

With the restrictions, hardly anyone boss hunts anymore, and the lower lvls have to grind around the bosses.

I think it was just a spur of the moment thing from GM giving out that random event. Also it was to test to see whether the codes for bosses were working as he had just recently got them. Next time im sure it will be announced with much more headroom for preparation.

Cracaniciealmeu
May 31st, 2014, 02:31 PM
The level restriction it's a good thing. This way all players have a chance for bosses. Imagine def boss/hp boss being camped by PS players. One boss can be monopolized but at least it's within the level limits. For cc bosses there might be a fix by not allowing people that are ec+6 to get the anti-pk buff. It's simple, when u reach ec6 you can no longer see the buff at hermit or you get a message saying you're to high or bla bla.
Prompted by the occasion rather than being planned in advance (Impromptu): don't worry, there will be many more events like this and maybe hosted better. As Cido said previously they collected data from their gm tools to be able to host future events smoothly.

I honestly dont know why they changed it, but i'm still trying to figure out why they stopped us from being able to drop items on the ground.

That's why I don't like newbs. It goes back to Yin when they figured out how to stop VN seller sites. They had some program which allowed them to dupe things, but in some way it required things to be able to dropped.
People could buy anything from them which they could get once in the game. 2slot dmg wbs from Wei, any PSH weapon refined to any level, KGs, crit pills from the quest, exp cards, drop cards, relics, bboe, literally anything. Even levels.
I really hope nobody wants this back in the game.
