Regarding this weekend's Bomber event, did you guys actually expect as many users to try to confuse everyone by dressing up as the bomber as there were?


Oh yes XD We figured some pranksters would have fun throwing people off the trail by dressing up! It made things more interesting though, don't you think?

Right now we're waiting to see how our changes to formulas will pan out for the alchemy chain. We've got a couple more ideas we can try but we need to see the effects first.

Are you saying that it took a long time to buy the formulas because you needed so many of the same kind? We want to update more of the gold shops to handle quantity purchases so Bifrost might be a good candidate.

Exactly.

Formula 1: Cephalopodian Artifact
Formula 1: Unicorn Blood
Formula 1: Pegasus's Feather
Formula 1: Bottled up Sunlight (10) 10
Formula 1: Bottled up Moonlight (6) 6

Formula 2: Starseed Oil

Formula 3: Ectoplasm (15) 15
Formula 3: Amphithere's Hypnotic Eye (3) 3
Formula 3: Griffin's Fiery Feather

Formula 4: Angel Imp's feather (4) 4
Formula 4: Enchanted Water (2) 2
Formula 4: Red Mercury (7) 7

Formula 5: Sunstone (8 ) 8
Formula 5: Moonstone (5) 5
Formula 5: Phoenix's Feather
Formula 5: Angel's Tears (3) 3

Formula 6: Angel Blood (11) 11
Formula 6: Uranium biscuits (7) 7
Formula 6: Demon Blood
Formula 6: Demon's Curse
Formula 6: Celestial Glow (11) 11

Formula 7: Ambrosia (8 ) 8
Formula 7: Ankou's Strand of White Hair (3) 3
Formula 7: Quantum Particle (7) 7

Formula 8: Spice (5) 5
Formula 8: Eldritch Horror Tentacle

Formula 9: Soul Crystals (3) 3
Formula 9: Dark Matter (6) 6

Formula 10: Hero's Heart (6) 6
Formula 10: b*****d's Heart
Formula 10: Philosopher's Stone
Formula 10: Divine Feather

That's a lot of formulas, man.-lol-

So I'm curious how many people participated in the bomber manhunt? Like how many tickets got filed?

Taking out duplicates, there were 3649 tickets filed.

Howdy Admin, long time no see. ^^

Just a curious question because I never join in on the AtA fun.
I recently found myself a Pink Magical Giftbox floating around the other day and was curious, does the staff have any plans of bringing the Giftboxes back to their magical glory with a more up to date list of magical gifts?


Not a bad idea :]. I can't really say for sure how feasible this is since it needs to remain balanced, but I'll pass it along.

Hello, Lanzer and everyone. I only got a few questions...

1. The others in The Feeders of Stein guild asked me to ask this to you all.

Will Stein be in future events, I mean I am aware he might not be included in this event, but sometime in the future?

2. Since we got stuff of the Seven Deadly Sins on here, like the poses in The Nightmare EI, an event from long ago and even the Maleficent Seven MC. Have you thought of a RIG that focused on it and the Seven Holy Virtues? I do have an idea for that theme RIG. I mean since a lot of the NPCs may share the virtues and sins as a lot of us like Nicolae being Greed and Alruna being Lust as the Sins example and Ciro as Temperance (like in Arcana Break and is the opposite of Gluttony) and Stein being Diligence (opposite of Sloth) as examples. I know this seems more appropriate for the SF, but I haven't made a topic in 2 years. sweatdrop

Thank you for this RIG and I love the Sweet Frosting hair and thank you for the big alchemy change. I hope you keep going in the right direction in Alchemy.

Hello

First off the zOMG bugs that where fixed are not fixed there talk in the zOMG forum about this.

Second of all: Why can't we have a Dev Notice for when Deadmans Shadow is open? It makes sense.

Third: Why can the Gimpi Skin ( and I assume the Imp skins) can only wear some leg mods?

Totally.
We never stop talking about Alchemy ideas, and yes there are more ideas down the road, but we don't know which one we're doing first so no hints just yet. Sorry!

I read about your concerns regarding the Angelic Wings crafting, and yes I want to make sure that we can do more in terms of making things more accessible, to focus more on the factor of time versus the factor of gold. We're still discussing potential changes at this stage, and we're still listening.

Hallo, Gaia Peeps!

This week is gonna be Alchemy Week from me. Because I know you love hearing questions about Alchemy every week. emotion_awesome

First off, is there anything new with Alchemy coming up the pipeline? And surprising us isn't a fun answer, at this point, we ALL want to know what's coming. lol

Second, had an awesome Idea this weekend. You know those little formulas you have in the cash shop for 1gc? Want a way to have them sell more and help promote more zOMG use?
Add another craft line to them: 10 Orb Agragates. And wait to release the formulas till each CI is out of the cash shop. This way, you make more microsales, you boost zOMG popularity, you generate more items to be used on the site and in Alchemy, replenishing stock, it's a pretty decent gold sink as well, and encourages folks to try alchemy more.

Third...a new formula Idea for Bifrost, a level one, for 100 gold and 100 orbs: a new CI. Called Second Time Around. All it contains is the freebies that have been granted, but used up in Alchemy. Starmony, double rainbow, what have you.

Fourth...Seriously gotta figure out how to compensate for component consumption in this. I honestly started working on crafting the Angelic Wings today, and started crunching the numbers. Component count is in the high hundreds just from Caches. And while I know the users set the price in the MP, 100k a pop per component is....rough for most users. I would imagine. Just those alone I am looking at a quarter of a billion in gold cost, and that's not including cafting fails.

Let me read that off again. 250,000,000 in gold cost just to gather Caches, if I was really lucky and got what I wanted every time I opened it.

My foot is not that lucky. sweatdrop

I know you guys want the items to be awesome and such, and that's great. But the numbers for many of the formulas make it cost prohibitive to, well....damn near everyone. Because, and this is just me, but Alchemy is not worth my MC and EI collection. Not even close. I'll still craft my wings. But it'll realisticly take the better part of the decade as an average user. sweatdrop

Last thing. As a favor to those of use willing to craft the wing quest chain...maybe a bundle in the Bifrost with all the formulas you'll need, save for the wings? Buying all of them took me hours, man.-lol- And their IN THE SHOP! rofl

Anyway, enough ranting out of me, I'll let you guys get back to doing more things awesome!

It certainly did. So many people were throwing around wild accusations based on such odd reasons.

I Have 2 questions for this weeks ask the admin i was going to ask them like 2 weeks a go but i kept forgetting and missing the time.
Well what i would like to ask is why have devs and admins given up on zomg really all u needed was to hire a few more flash devs or u could of got intern flash devs to help u out till the money was there to get full time flash devs.

My Next Question is why is the number of site mods in the computer and technology only 3 i really think that u should try to maybe move around a few mods from other forums only like 2-4 more mods would really be needed.

I look Forward to what the admins/devs at gaia have to say about the 2 matters i am asking about.

well Lanzer i think i can happily say i am doing good.thanks for asking.

With regards to the Site Mods in C&T, we typically do not have a lot of moderators in low traffic forums. The reports in C&T can usually be handled strictly by a small amount of mods. If we see a need for increasing the number of mods, then we can review it.
Thank u for replying i am happy that u did seeing as now i do not feel like i was left out btw i love your avatar.

Happy early bday to Zero and me.


arrow Waffles companion!

arrow Any new sponsor stuff coming up? It feels like forever since we've had a movie or game or any type of sponsor with an item or two with it. Why the dry spell?

arrow Can you tell me what the cat game is about? Is it FB style or something different? I know it isn't ready, yet.

arrow Do you think the recent changes to alchemy made a huge difference? Will there still be more tweaks to come, or are you satisfied that you've done enough? (I haven't checked into the changes, yet, since i'm still a low level alchemist... Should it be a lot easier to level up, now?)

Wow, that's rather impressive for a very brief event. It was a lot of fun playing detective I must say. smile
