  1. The long awaited GS Applications are now open! We will only take into consideration applications that are properly submited. This means, the application form must be filled out and posted as a reply in this topic. All other ways of trying to apply for a Game Sage will be ignored and doing so might lower your chances of becoming one. We need competent GSes, after all! We are recruiting 2 Game Sages for each faction respectively. 1. Detailed information on who is a Game Sage WHO IS A GS? A Game Sage is a Community Volunteer who may often be found in-game, on the forums and in the Shoutbox. Game Sages, known as GS's are selected for their knowledge in a game as well as their willingness to help and their positive attitudes. Game Sages are normal players with more responsibilities. A Game Sage is a servers representative and serves to speak on behalf of the server to players and vice versa. Game Sages help resolve player issues where they can and will call a GM if needed and when they can. They also try to make the game more enjoyable for the players by running events for the players among other things. If a Game Sage tells you that something is wrong and to stop doing it, do NOT try to debate it if it's obvious that it is borderline or even obviously wrong. If there's a reasonable doubt as to whether it's right or wrong, then feel free to either make a post and see how the community feels or send in an email using the Contact Us form. RESPONSIBILITIES What are the responsibilities of a Game Sage? Communicating with players about their issues, concerns and feedback as well as providing them with need-to-know information and gameplay assistance. Documenting issues and bugs in the proper format. Resolving in-game issues such as harassment, excessive foul language, etc. Mediating between parties during arguments to prevent issues from being exploded out of proportion. If game rules are being broken, pointing it out to involved players as an informative warning. Coming up with new in-game events for the players. Planning, organizing and running in-game/forum events for the players. What Game Sages will NOT do? Call a GM for you. If you need to contact a GM, please submit a Ticket. Foward your Tickets. All Tickets will be answered as soon as possible, from oldest to newest. Give any promises to players that their request/service/ticket will be reviewed faster than others. Share confidential information to players. This includes GM to GS communication, as well as GS to GS communication. Everything that is discussed within the team is confidential, until stated otherwise. OBLIGATIONS OF A GS Confidentiality: Information you receive as a Game Sage is absolutely private and not to be shared with players, unless clearly stated otherwise. This applies to information you get from the Admin, GMs, forum moderators or even other GSes. Trust is vitally important for this program and without it - we cannot function as a team. Behavior: As a volunteer, you do two things. You represent the player to the team and you represent the team to the player. Your behavior reflects on you as well as the team. Always approach players politely. Never threaten a player nor threaten punitive actions (bans, mute, etc.) on them. Never speak down to a fellow player or treat them as inferior. Game Sages are players as well, they just have more responsibilities than the others do. Judgement: If you cannot find the answer to something and you've checked all the mediums - eg. droplist, forums and asked other players, you should know how to use your best judgement (aka common sense). It's OKAY to not have all the answers as long as you make an effort to improve and learn. Knowledge: Being familiar with the game and forums, understanding and following the Terms of Service, FAQ and Policies of Play Shaiya. You should be well-versed in locating information. Here's a list of requirements that have to be met to become a Game Sage: - You show mature attitude towards Game Masters, other players and issues they raise - It is your decision how much time you want to spend on being a Game Sage (unless it's an unreasonably low amount), but if you only commit to, e.g. 1 hour per day, we'll expect your full and undivided attention during that time. - You can communicate in a professional and mature manner with other players - You need to show ambition to improve the atmosphere in the game and your game knowledge - It's very appreciated if you're willing to go an extra mile in your tasks - You have never been banned at all for a major offense or repeatedly for minor offenses. - You should have experience playing the game - You should have a good written knowledge of English, to be able to communicate with Game Masters (and other players) in a smooth, precise and misunderstanding-free way Last but not least, the application form we will need you to fill out and post as a reply to this topic. A: What is your character name and what faction do you play on? B. What community contributions have you made that shows you would make a good game sage? C. What experience do you have running/hosting organizational events? D. Please give a short description of what you think a good GameSage does. Good luck! Kind regards, Viseryon

  7. Follow up patch includes Linking Hammer Lv2 in Item Mall.
  8. Item Mall changes - Lv4 Lapis Bag added - Lv5 Lapis Bag added - Goddess Sets for all classes added
  9. Someone disbanded -Deicide- in EP5. We had the guild up with our alt accounts, but someone was stupid enough to disband an important piece of shaiya history. As far as I know, nobody of the old -Deicide- core played Shaiya as of ep6.
  10. Oh really? I spent the most of my Shaiya years in -Deicide- as well, before and after -Pride- left for DragonReign. Used to be a member of DragonReign too, mainly for being too ambicious and -Deicide- still being too social and casual back then. After my return and gained knowledge at the servers top guild, -Deicide- started doing much better. We got boss kills and even constantly beat DragonReign in Guild Ranking Battle, even though they had at least twice the numbers. Was a good time, but most "Deicide-ers" don't play Shaiya anymore, some don't even play games at all.
  11. The sets will be added to the account names you provided. Due to personal matters I was unable to make the sets yesterday, but they will be done today.
  12. Dear Shaiyans, We are holding a recruitment event. Bring at least 3 friends, get a 5/6 linked Goddess Set for your and your friends! Promotion is valid until Sunday, January 7th!
  13. Send me the account names and classes in a private message to get the sets ready.

  15. - OI droprate increased - Added free weapons to Item Mall - Added teleport runes to recall pack - Fortune Bag, Upgrade Bag and RR now dropping in KI - 1-15 boss added
  16. In order to fully understand the skill issue, I will have to level a char of my own to experience the problem. I haven't had the time to do that yet. I checked the skills and the required skillpoints are same as on EP5, except the additional Lv71+ EP6 skills that cannot be learned due to level requirement.
  17. Monster Madness!

    We will have a Monster Madness today after maintenance. Time and location TBA, roughly 18:00 GMT
  18. You were a bit ahead of yourself. This was added in todays patch
  19. Updated to current state.
  20. Leveling Madness!

    For one day, we will double our already increased exp rates. This is your opportunity to join us and bring your friends for a leveling madness!
  21. Weapon Rates: WeaponStep00 = 90% WeaponStep01 = 80% WeaponStep02 = 70% WeaponStep03 = 60% WeaponStep04 = 50% WeaponStep05 = 20% WeaponStep06 = 20% WeaponStep07 = 20% WeaponStep08 = 20% WeaponStep09 = 20% WeaponStep10 = 5% WeaponStep11 = 5% WeaponStep12 = 5% WeaponStep13 = 5% WeaponStep14 = 5% WeaponStep15 = 3% WeaponStep16 = 3% WeaponStep17 = 3% WeaponStep18 = 3% WeaponStep19 = 3% WeaponStep20 = 3% Armor Rates: DefenseStep00 = 80% DefenseStep01 = 70% DefenseStep02 = 60% DefenseStep03 = 50% DefenseStep04 = 20% DefenseStep05 = 20% DefenseStep06 = 20% DefenseStep07 = 20% DefenseStep08 = 20% DefenseStep09 = 5% DefenseStep10 = 5% DefenseStep11 = 5% DefenseStep12 = 5% DefenseStep13 = 5% DefenseStep14 = 5% DefenseStep15 = 3% DefenseStep16 = 3% DefenseStep17 = 3% DefenseStep18 = 3% DefenseStep19 = 3% DefenseStep20 = 3%
  22. Yes, I've been thinking about it. Originally, Sera was meant to also drop a Lv7 Lapis, and due to that I didn't add Sonic/Flash. Considering Sera is pretty much a 2nd Kimu right now, Sera will get Sonic and Flash Lapis in one of the next updates.
  23. Thank you for reporting. I noticed them too while editing drop rates in VR/PR yesterday. They are unkillable currently, but they will be removed before they are. The stuff they drop will not be equipable either.
  24. This will take some time, as I will have to compare each skills with the ep5 skill file and made changes where they are needed. Can't give an ETA for that right now, as it depends on how much has to be changed. Until I compare both files, I can't know for sure. I would rather finish all the drops first and then sit down to correct skills, as there still are some drops left to add.
  25. Sure, we can find a place for them to drop. I would not add them to the upgrade bag, as that would just lower the amount of OPs that drop im general.
