Hi,

Here are my questions~

1) How about a "rank decay" for alchemists/blacksmiths?
2) Will maps/monster spawns be updated with trans patch? (Batholians, Anubises,...)
3) could you give us a kind of roadmap, I mean the order in which content will be released? (Homon>lhz>trans>sl/sg atm, if I'm right?)
4) What about foods?
5) What about the slotter? Will you release it in its original version or will you nerf it (especially for stunners and op gears)
6) What about the lvl4 weapons quest (the one located at niff)?

Thank you in advance for your answers~ Sorry for my shitty english

I think rank decay for alchemist/blacksmith is a good idea, and really the best time to implement it would have been at the start. But I guess now is the second best time.

Why the sudden leniency on the use of macros for potters and nothing else? What is the difference between making pots and turning iron into steel?

When was the rank list for alchemists and blacksmith reset last?

Is it punishment when there is no set periods for resets/decay on these rankings?

We know (for a fact) that many big guilds are using macros to brew, and several of the ranked Alchemists got that way through macros. If we punish one person when we happen to catch them, it doesn't affect the five other people who also used macros to rank that Alchemist, nor does it affect all the rank points that Alchemist already accumulated.

I remain on this Server for almost 5 years and my brewer is ranked.
Never I have used a macro, no one should need that.

Just look at Fockers:
Playing here for 1-2 months, yet they have a ranked one. What is the problem of some whiny people here?
Decay for 300k points? That's Pathetic IMO, better spend some time potting/hunting mats

Lets remove refinement and cards so newbies are not that much behind and lets get rid of lvl/exp too

You're ranked and you've been playing here for a long time, so you're hardly unbiased on this subject.

I very strongly believe that rank decay is necessary for a balanced and healthy market environment for potions. I've also done some calculations - to earn 300,000 alchemist points, assuming you've got a decent success chance, you need to craft around 300,000 slim red potions. At approximately 5 potions per second, that's almost 17 hours of constant potion crafting, 300k red potions and cactus needles.At a price of 400z for the needles ALONE that's 120mil zeny. That's just really not possible to achieve unless you play for a really long time.

A small amount of weekly decay (as a percentage of total rank) would help.

Could handle it the iRO way and wipe the list every 3 months. (or whenever the top ranker hits 10million points in my case qq)

as for macros, come on, manually crafting pots adds nothing of value to the game.

Rank decay for all classes that have it is planned, and has been planned for years, but for some reason I keep forgetting.

The plan is to remove a percentage every month. Possibly 2~5% per month.
