Yo dudes, while doing Arcade runs Basil will not have any recipes if you join on the floor before his or on his floor.

I think that was part of an old patch. It was to combat people selling "Recipe Teleports" by having someone at Basil with a popular recipe and having a mule character accept money for party invites.

^

it was more profitable than buying the recipe alone. You'd buy it, sell that, then "sell" even more of them by taking the markup directly (the 1-2k fare) and then having the people buy the recipe from Basil.

Bad news.
I am lagging way too hard to enjoy this game for now. I won't be playing until I can figure out how a new modem and router are screwing me over like this.


ugh

Daaamn that really sucks. D: And super weird.



that reminds me, ZHAO
THERE ARE EU SERVERS

hit Esc, tab over to Game I think, then select your region. Every party you host from then on will be on the EU servers and it will give preference to EU-based players when you play.

I COULD BE WRONG ABOUT WHICH TAB IT'S IN

BUT I VERIFIED THIS MYSELF THAT IT DOES EXIST


I was playing with somebody and they were like "why is it so laggy?!" and it wasn't until the end of the run that he realized that I was an American player, and he was used to the EU servers, haha. And he told me how to access it

Additionally, any knight that has already completed the required missions will receive these recipes in the mail.

- Shining Fire Crystal Recipe
- Glowing Fire Crystal Recipe
- Warm Fire Crystal Recipe
- Dim Fire Crystal Recipe
- Cracked Fire Crystal Recipe

Changes
- Vitapod drop rate has been increased
- Sprite food alchemy machines can now be found in Emberlight and Moorcroft Manor

The following items have been added to the Haven Bazaar:

hi so I think I might upgrade the Guild Hall a bit

But I want to upgrade my crystals, not downgrade them!
In other news, looks like I can get good connections so long as no one in the house is using the internet for stuff. Which means I can play late at night or when I'm home alone.
So, when I usually do so anyway.

Once you get to the last tier, it's actually HARDER to get 4* crystals than 5*, so I wholly welcome this change quite a bit.


also here's the info for the Kat Event:

Quote:
Kataclysmic Confrontation!
Someone or something has again summoned hordes of cursed black kats into the Clockworks. These shadowy beasts hunger for arcane power and have predictably stormed the Moorcroft Manor Archives' precious collection of magical grimoires in another attempt to execute their nefarious plans.

It appears that illiteracy is still rampant among the black kat hordes, so they have once more taken to eating the pilfered pages rather than using them for arcane rituals.

The residents of Moorcroft Manor would like you to retrieve the Ancient Pages of the magical grimoires that quite likely reside in the stomachs of black kats. We'll leave you to figure out just how to recover them...

Event Overview
Kataclysmic Confrontation is an event that will run for a limited time but will return again some time in the future. The goal of the event is to collect Ancient Page tokens for all-new kat gear in Moorcroft Manor. If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, those are still valid. The event is available for knights rank 4-1 and up.

Ancient Page tokens can be acquired in two ways:
- Completing the daily Prestige Missions and receiving them as mission rewards
- Receiving them as drops from black kat monsters in missions or the Arcade

Black kats are monsters that focus on powerful curse attacks. They can randomly be found in place of any spookat-type monster in any Tier 2 and Tier 3 level level of the Clockworks (Missions and Arcade Gates). Black kats often, but no always, drop Ancient Page tokens (1 token in Tier 2, 3 tokens in Tier 3). Specifically, any 'guaranteed encounters' of black kats in a mission do not drop page tokens, though the mission guarantees them as rewards (once a day).

Ancient Page Tokens do not expire. Acquiring all the Kat gear will likely take multiple events.

*This event is scheduled to end on August 28th.*

Moorcroft Manor Additions
Moorcroft Manor is outfitted with the Moorcroft Archives, a special library of ancient grimoires. Unfortunately it has just been raided by an army of black kats and it's up to you to restore order! Along the way, keep an eye out for Ancient Page tokens in order to purchase unique equipment exclusive to the Kataclysmic Confrontation event.

Kat Gear
Exclusive gear can be acquired through participation in the event. This gear can be obtained from Montague in Moorcroft Manor and via the Moorcroft Alchemy Station. It includes:
- Kat Claw Hood (3* helm)
- Kat Claw Mask (4* helm)
- Kat Claw Cowl (5* helm)
- Kat Eye Hood (3* helm)
- Kat Eye Mask (4* helm)
- Kat Eye Cowl (5* helm)
- Kat Hiss Hood (3* helm)
- Kat Hiss Mask (4* helm)
- Kat Hiss Cowl (5* helm)
- Kat Tribe Fetish (4* material)

Remember, the only way to claim this new gear is by hunting down black kats and collecting those Ancient Page tokens. So equip yourself with curse-resistant gear and get hunting!

Moorcroft Prize Box
After another surprise black kat attack, the ghostly occupants of Moorcroft Manor are exploring ways to fund a restoration effort for their damaged Archives. The denizens of Moorcroft Manor have reached out to those in charge of the Haven Treasury in order to sell their spectral wares and eerie accoutrements directly to knights who are looking to give their Guild Halls a bit of otherworldly character!

From now until 12:00 PM PDT on August 28th, 2013, exclusive Moorcroft Prize Boxes will be available for purchase directly from the Supply Depot!

Each Moorcroft Prize Box has a special prize inside. Possible prizes include wide array of ornate, Victorian-style furnishings, such as the velvet covered Antique Benches, faintly glowing Gaslamps as well as spooky Moorcroft items like the Skull Piles. Not only that, but a lucky few players may find the very rare Cursed and Mystical Tome Stands, a Curious Mewkat, or even a Zombie Bellhop to wander around your Guild Hall! Each box also has a chance to contain a piece of bonus equipment, such as a Slot Upgrades or a Heat Amplifier.

Remember: Moorcroft Prize Boxes require no key to open, and all items found inside a Moorcroft Prize Box are unbound, so share with your friends!

[For a full list of available prizes and other more detailed info, check the official forums because this post already got huge]

You can now buy other Battle Sprites, currently 1,900 energy but likely to go up.

Also there are prize boxes, Gourmet themed apparently. The tooltip says they're for battle chefs. YAY NEW COSTUMES.

Arcade Redux
After a great deal of evaluation we’ve decided to change the way the Arcade will work and the purpose it will serve to the SK community. After introducing missions, the Arcade has become a place of redundancy. It has also suffered from the recent sprite update, relying on mineral leftovers from the community.

Over several patches, we intend to transform the Arcade into the place it has always aspired to be:
- A sandbox-type experience where unexpected things can happen
- A place where players can farm materials and items in between missions
- A feature that gives players some degree of control over the experience

Modified Rank Mission Campaign
The Rank Mission campaign is going to be receiving an update that continues the story of the Artifact and introduces a new primary antagonist for the Spiral Knights. The framework for this story will allow us to further expand Rank Missions post-Vanguard.

New Tier 3 Boss
A new mission arc will be incorporated following the events of the Firestorm Citadel that will include a new boss monster for players to challenge.

Challenge Mode
In addition to the exciting features we have planned for the Arcade and Rank Missions, we're busy working on an all-new 'challenge mode' that will allow players to work as a team in cooperative scenarios and compete with other teams for a high score. Challenge mode will also feature rewards for those that really excel.

More to Come!
This isn't all that we have in store for you, it's just all we can talk about right now. Many more exciting features are on the way! Keep an eye out here on the Spiral Knights forums for details on the above projects, and more.

skreeeeeeeeeeeeeee THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT.
