  1. Hello everyone! I wanted to let you all know that my time here at NetEase Games has come to an end. I'm moving out of California after having accepted a new job opportunity in another state. I have truly enjoyed my time with all of you. Thank you for all the passion and excitement you have brought to Crusaders of Light. I hope you continue playing and sharing your feedback on our various feedback channels, and you never know...perhaps our paths will cross again someday!
  2. This one's going a day earlier as opposed to the usual days from before.
  3. That's what the timezone converter says

  5. Please be aware that Crusaders of Light will be down for a scheduled server maintenance on Wednesday, March 7 at 2AM GMT for an estimated 6 hours. As this is a larger update the downtime will be longer than usual. We appreciate your patience during this time and will have the game back up and running as soon as possible! You can find the latest patch notes here, but please be advised that they might not be available until sometime during the day of the actual maintenance. Thank you!
  6. Update has been pushed to the 6th. New Server planned for the 7th.
  7. You will not lose your earned rank. Once the reset happens you will need to pick your faction again, you can pick the same one you had before or you can pick a different one. When that happens all relevant reputation and achievements will transfer.
  8. Let's keep the discussion focused on the topic of D0 and how you feel about Set Swaps. Please do not attack other players.
  9. We're going to be adjusting paladins with the Surge of Elements update, specifically with regards to some PVP concerns.
  10. Hi all, Executioner Warriors will be getting some love with the Surge of Elements update. It won't be a massive rework, you will see some numbers tweaked.

  15. New Class: Elementalist The Elementalists are the spirit mages who control elemental magic. Their flexible control over wind, earth, water and fire elements from nature gives them powerful abilities. They can also provide buffs for allies and themselves. Elementalist Paths include: Elementalist Herald, Mercenary Mage and Conjured Spirit. Elementalist Herald: Gain Path Skill Fiery Wing that deals massive damage to single target. Mercenary Mage: Gain Path Skill Frost Vortex that deals constant damage and freezes the target in range. Conjured Spirit: Gain Path Skill Conjuring Force, increasing magic damage and range, and adding elemental damage for attacks New Raid: Wind Bluff Prison Wind Bluff Prison is a 10-person raid. Players who have reached level 55 with path level 65 can access it. This raid shares the same drop cooldown with Chimeria, Everlush Valley and Kothas Foundry. Additionally, players who complete Wind Bluff Prison first for their server will get an exclusive achievement and title. Team Raid Adjustment: Core of Rock Essence Reduced the difficulty for Core of Rock Essence Raid. Reduced attack damage and health of the boss Great Turtle Todt and Captain Sam. Reduced the frequency of summoning Rock Essence Elementals. The summoning time will be later, reducing the requirement on the damage output of the team. Drop adjustment: After this server maintenance, Todt’s Shell and Sam’s Sabre will not be tradable among players. But the materials earned from bid can still be traded. Fixed the problem where the flame vfx doesn’t match the damage range of Ghost Burst (Captain Sam’s ability) Assist system now available for Core of Rock Essence. Qualified players can assist in the boss fight with Great Turtle Todt and Captain Sam. New D6 Item Set Molten Flames: Dropped by Samofir in Wind Bluff Prison. Molten Flames (2-piece set): When a skill crits, there is a small chance to shoot a fireball to deal extra damage to the target. Molten Flames (3-piece set): Exploding fire bombs deal area of effect damage. The closer to the explosion, the more damage received. Cleansing Chains: Dropped by Balian in Wind Bluff Prison. Cleansing Chains (2-piece set): When healing a single target, there is a chance to also heal 2 allies linked by Cleansing Chains, restoring their HP over 6 seconds. Cleansing Chains link is broken if allies exceed a distance of 20 meters (this will also stop the healing effect). Cleansing Chains (3-piece set): If the two linked allies stay linked for the entire duration of Cleansing Chains, they will gain a shield which absorbs incoming damage. Mystica and Raid Related Added “Ordeal” difficulty for Mystica, and it is accessible once the server progress reaches Kothas Foundry. For this difficulty level, the boss’s attribute will be 25% hit rating, 10% dodge, 15% parry and 10% crit. Reduced difficulty for Hell and Nightmare levels Reduced the requirement for the raid assisting players, allowing more players to be qualified for assisting in raids. At the same time, increased their assisting attributes in raids. Reduced the difficulty for Pulrik in Heroic Skyblaze Village. This change also altered the trigger range of the Ultimate Being (Mutant), and added hints for players before triggering the Ultimate Being. Fixed a raid loading screen issue that was caused by checking the world map during the raids. For Mystica, monster and boss levels have been changed to a fixed level (level 45) instead of average level of the raid team. Illusionist Lord The star circle for Illusionist Lord will be visible for players before entering the battle. Players can choose based on the star circle to restraint. Reduced the gap between each difficulty level for Illusionist Lord. The difficulty now ramps up more evenly. Rewards have been adjusted as well.
