    Trade managers are buying fishes without any conditions. Trading fishes will not be affected by node connection from now on.

    WTF is this. No distance bonus? Did they just murder fishing?

      level 3 Dringe


      I'm really concerned about this note too, I really hope this is meant only for Imperial Fishing or something, cause otherwise this is a huge nerf.

      It means you no longer have to connect the nodes, distance bonus is still intact.

      level 27 Yullie


      Sorry for not clarifying it enough :( It means the disadvantages that comes when nodes are not connected will no longer affect fish prices. Distance bonus will be intact. I'll make a note next to that line. Thanks!

      @Anna_Naito I assumed the stam cost replaced the mana cost, in which case that's a pretty big buff for PVE and against mana-drains. Is it just an extra stam cost on top of mana cost? It's worded the same as the Ranger dash change, and that was a resource replacement.

    re "Guild Leave of Absence system". Can someone please clarify whether a person on such leave is still eligible for guild payout? Or, if you are on leave, you are excluded from the payout roster?

      level 1 Diggin_Hole

      @Diggin_Hole by payouts I meant bonus payments, noy salary.

      Hello, the person who is on a leave of absence will be excluded from the payout roster, as the person will not receive any guild benefits. Thanks!

      level 1 Diggin_Hole


      Thanks for your reply @Yullie. We had this system intoduced to our servers today, and had one person take leave to test the system. However, he still shows up in the bonus payment distrubution window. Are you sure about exclusion? Maybe we need to wait for some time before he is dropped from the list? Out total guild count also remained unaffected even though he is now "on vacation".

      P.S. - the person who took leave is an officer (maybe this is relevant too)

      level 28 Yullie


      Thanks for letting me know. In the KR patch notes it says that the person who is on vacation "will not receive any guild benefits" including daily pay, but did not mention anything about bonus pay so I assumed that the person won't receive bonus pay either. I just checked the global patch notes and the KR patch notes again but none of them mentions anything about bonus pay :(
