    But more importantly...

    Is archery worth using? Has anyone tried it since the patch?

    The turn-in for those weapons only includes the special hued vanquishing slayers that dropped from the Flame Knight or Frost Knight. There was a small problem in the drop rate for those and to balance that out we are offering the turn in. So it is not every weapon of that type, just the special rare variants.

    I made archery work before the patch, so I am biased. but my answer is yes.

    Turn on debug mode, [profile, second tab on the right, second from the bottom radio button
    and you will see the distance, chance to hit, your attk vs their defense.

    I tried it on the open seas so haven't tested shooting on the run. If that works at all , it will be worth it

    I used my archer tank last night and for realzies noticed a difference, makes it hella dope for people that like to jet half way through a rumble as your still causing damage as they try and bounce. It's gonna open up some more templates I think. Fuck with it though my dude, this was just my experience

    i really enjoy using archery, so far i have noticed a difference in hit chance, there are occasions where u miss still in a row, but overall damage and range are pretty good. seem to do more damage from further away. an archer mage can certainly make things difficult in field battle.

    I would think a Krampus/White Witch scroll would be a fair trade. Of course this is a voluntary, time sensitive offer. More of these weapons will drop over time as more players do these scrolls.

    Damage is unchanged in this patch, although damage over time would increase due to the improve chance to hit.

    Is the copper system already active and has anybody aleady any copper in their copper wallet?
    Just wondering because I am donating monthly and it still says zero and if I should inform Chris about it.
    I am donating since I started again in december 2017 - and donated before, but thats too long ago to count in the copper system ;)

    I've seen screenshots indicating people had platinum in their wallets, so unless those were doctored...

    Everyone who has contacted me with their account information to link their donation to the game server has been credited. Every donor for the last 14 months has been sent an email looking for that information if I currently lack it. So Check your donation linked email and feel free to contact me directly (irc is best) to help me get our database updated.

    I think I've got about 75% of the players credited at this point. You can also see it on the new login message which lists any platinum/copper wallet balances.

    Note: We are still rolling out the features to this system. So at the moment copper can only be used for name changes, forum name changes, acct recovery, and character transfers.
