In-game Macro/Swapping System

Swapping Made Easy

  • We've introduced a new swapping system which fixes the long problem of macros during siege/competitive game-modes! 
    • It's an easy to use and wonderful system featuring a custom GUI and design.
    • No more macro failures during siege, and an easy to use set up makes this the perfect swapping system!
    • In order to set up your macros, refer to the new button on your inventory window. Clicking that will open the macro GUI. 
    • You can then set a complete armor/jewelry set, weapons, cloaks, costumes and raised/buff pets.
    • You can then hit save, and drag the icon to anywhere on your hotkeys for instant use in-game!

 

You thought all we had was PvP balance... ha!

Balance Changes

Krona's Balance Overhaul

  • We realized that our balance was not at all where we wanted it, so we made some major changes. As always, these changes are completely up for change afterwards if we feel more things need to be changed. We felt these updates will make siege and PvP in general so much more fluid/smooth in general, and were long overdue. Here's to the best balance that Krona has ever seen, and perhaps all Flyff servers!

    • Both Buff Balls and SFX Pets now give maxed (level 2) Assist buffs.

Bug Fixes & Corrections

    • Several items have had their descriptions corrected in this update.

    • When you hover over stats in your “H” window in-game, you will now see correct information and names.

After a lot of testing and several iterations of changes, we feel we're prepared to release this balance to the community. We hope that you all enjoy it, and find that the PvP overall is a more enjoyable experience on Krona. Of course balance won't be perfect and will require some fine tuning along the way, which we will quickly rectify over the next couple of days together with any bug fixes. If you guys have any comments/suggestions pertaining to Krona, make sure to post them in the discussion thread which you can find below.

Don't forget to bring your friends, vote daily, and have a great time playing! We will be heading into several more exciting changes and systems going into place soon, and we are working our hardest to make Krona the most enjoyable server ever!

the Krona team.
