    Anyone know how exactly the market auto-price-decrease system works? I keep seeing some strangely low sale prices (like half of what I listed an item for) after just a day or two on the market -- though for other items it works fine, with only a small percentage decrease each day as I would expect. And sometimes I can't even find my unsold items at the listed prices, neither in the rates window nor the Buy window.

    I've noticed this phenomenon too, though have no idea how it works

    I have no idea either. o_O

    Beware the Free League at Lower Levels... at 29 I was matched up vs a 60. Needless to say it was painful. Most my matches were people in the 30's.

    Well I made a character and as i'd hoped it seems to play great on my satellite connection, wooo turn based! The community also seems to be pretty friendly..at least i'm assuming thats why people keep gifting me high level weapons and armor...Of course it leaves me in the sad state where I have lvl 25+ cannons, spears and swords, and my highest level character is 6 D: Anyway i'm on thebes as Talios

    The community does seem nice, but in fact the real secret is that there are rewards for gifting newb characters. Title quests for gifting, stamina increasing with each gift, gifting to gain apprentices for mentor points, guild points being partially dependent on membership attendance, etc etc. A lot of that applies to sharing monster info too, and crafters earn XP for teaching levels via the same system (Actions menu from the Whisper screen). It's nice to have multiple methods of gift-giving and other forms of generosity built right in, plus in-game reasons for using them.

    Also, you'll probably find that 1-20, and even 20-30, goes quite fast. The PA crew is really good about keeping everybody in parties for the xp sharing, which is great for low levels. And they are kind and generous fellows too!

    m party is an axe (my main) spearman, gunner and archer, if i move my main back they just rape whatever I have in front the first turn, then move onto him next
    I think I might have a chance if I could get another merc, i'm level 10 so i think i should be able to hire one more, except I haven't been able to find anywhere to do so, I read earlier in the thread that travelling and finding anything was confusing as fuck without the auto move on, but I didn't believe it, now i'm a convert :wink:

    Talios: your spearman can stomach some damage, it should last more than one turn. Also: your ranged dps should focus everything on the scout.

    You can get a new a new merc either through a quest or buy one from one of the NPC close to the first city you run into.

    Hell Scout and his buddies use Flame Sword, right? That's probably insta-death if they get 3+ hits on anyone in your front line - which I've seen them do in a single turn. Part of all boss fights is just getting lucky with how the AI acts, you'll see it with Hellish Fairy soon too. If you have an Archer, you can Silence some of the mobs to prevent them using magic. You can also preemptively use health potions, but that means you won't be attacking that turn.

    *sigh* another day, 6 more failed attempts @ the hell scout..thank god you dont seem to lose levels from death experience lost or i'd be back at level one =p as to the tips people gave me above, all my guys are using equipment, most of them have enchanted +1 weapons/armor, and even pre-emptively chugging a potion means that whatever guy I stick up front dies before the potion goes off..potions seem to be pretty useless in this game? oh well, i'm moving onto plan b which is grind 2 or 3 levels, i'll get him yet :x

    edit: bahh, although i just observed the battles of 3 different people killing hell scouts to see if i was missing something and they all had 1 more merc then me..god damnit obviously i need to find somewhere to get another one

    The merc person is outside of town somewhere, you can find out who/where by the under game info -> npc -> merchant and looking through them. You can even use auto-walk to waltz right up.

    You can also bug someone to kill him for you.

    What would be the best next addition to my line up at the moment?

    Back row: Shaman - Gunner
    Middle row: Gunner - Viking
    Front row: Axe - Sword

    Axe is my main. I was thinking Cannon maybe, put the viking in the front and cannon at the back, two gunners in mid. I don't really do free league at the moment so optimal placing doesn't really bother me. I have been told an Archer would be good but I don't really get that bothered by magic users at the moment, maybe that will change but for now it's not too bad.

    Thoughts?

    An appropriately leveled Viking is monstrous. Way more HP than a Swordsman, and quite a bit stronger. My level 6 Viking had more HP than my level 18 Swordsman.

    Archer's are great because they can attack enemies in the back row, do good damage and also have Silence, which is really useful. I think a Spearman might also be beneficial, since they can attack 3 rows deep.

    Yeah, my current viking is doing great damage and my sword does great single target damage and can soak up some nice damage if focused on.

    I might pick up an archer and see how it goes, if I don't like i'll just fire her and get something else. It's not like mercs are hard to level atm.. might be different if i was 50+ :P

    nifty event stuff, much of it happening tomorrow
    You’ve done it! We’ve reached the final marker in our quest for fighters in the Free Leagues - 30,000 of you have battled it out against one another. And now it’s time to bring the No Atlantian Left Behind contest to a close with a bang!

    Expect bonus time for the next three days, and Free Leaguers will earn some licenses and be eligible for the Milestone Mettle Tournaments. And then there’s the biggest prize - $10,000 will be going to a Free Leaguer! Plus, five more of you will be randomly selected to win a Nintendo Wii.

    Here’s a rundown of all that’s happening with this momentous occasion:


    Celebrate With Fellow Atlantians

    That’s right, for 72 hours, starting when the clock strikes midnight to usher in Friday, Nov. 21, in the Pacific time zone, all players will receive 150% Experience points while they make their way in the Atlantica world. You’ll have the whole weekend - three straight days! - to bask in bonus experience and to level up quicker.

    Start Time: Nov. 21, at 12 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST)
    Duration: 72 hours

    Plus, all players who participated in the Free Leagues, regardless of whether they won or lost their battles, will receive the License Package, which consists of five 14-day licenses for Teleportation, Patrol, Health Check, and Auto-Battle. In addition, all Free Leaguers will receive eight 7-day Mercenary Room Licenses.

    Delivery Time: Nov. 21, at 8 p.m. PST
    Delivery Location: Your Item Pick Up under the ‘Item Mall’ menu


    The Magnificent Elephant’s Footsteps [flecknote: elephant statue requires 3000 golden tusks, good luck]

    Time is running out to craft your Golden Elephant statue, which can then be exchanged for the Byzantine Elephant by Nov. 30. Now your chance to collect 150 of the necessary Golden Tusks arrives on Nov. 21. Thirty tusks will be distributed to the inventory of all Level 20-plus players who are online at these times: 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. (all times are PST). Be on at the right times and you can add 150 Golden Tusks to help you with that special statue.


    Milestone Mettle Tournament

    With the final Milestone of 30,000 comes the final round of Milestone Mettle Tournaments. And the best prize was saved for last: $1,000 to the winner of each tournament. So earn some cold hard cash for your kick-ass combat. And this time, there will be 10 total tournaments; two for each of the five servers.

    The final two Milestone Mettle Tournaments will be held:
    Nov. 21 at 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. PST.

    When the Milestone Mettle Tournament is about to begin, it will be announced in-game as another weekly championship tournament. Please disregard that notice. The tournaments at 12 p.m. and 7 p.m. PDT on Nov. 21 are in fact the Milestone Mettle Tournaments.

    The prizes for the 30,000 Milestone Mettle Tournaments:
    1st Place: $1,000 & Hell Horse.
    2nd Place: Hell Horse.
    3rd & 4th Places: 10 Multi-Hued Jewelry Boxes.

    Plus, there will be a raffle on each of the server’s Free Leaguers for thirty (30) Brown Horses.

    Each set of prizes will be awarded to competitors on each Atlantica server. First place winners of the Milestone Mettle Tournament will receive a confirmation email after the tournament.

    Please note: You must have fought in the Free Leagues to participate in these tournaments. There can be no repeat first place winners. Once one account wins a Milestone Mettle Tournament, he or she is not eligible to win another first place prize from another Milestone Mettle tournament during the open beta period.
