Q&A with R2Mentor - Oct 2014

Hey guys, I had a chat with one of the R2 Mentors, basically a Question and Answer type of a chat and I wanted to share that with you (i corrected spelling / grammar where possible), i.e. the answers from R2Mentor. I want to again thank him in advance for doing his best and taking the time to answer my/our questions.

That said, if anyone of you knows the missing answers please email me or post in the comments below and I will update the post with your answer. But please remember to specify how do you know, because if it is just gossip or prediction or 1 person's opinion that's not so good.

Cosmos

Hi with so many new items in last patches we have big problems with bag space - are they going to add more pages or another solution?

R2Mentor

Currently there are no news regarding this matter.

Cosmos

Okay, thanks. I have another question: for King's Seals one can keep through preliminaries and finals? and until when?

R2Mentor

You can keep them until the finals that's for sure.
I assume that after the finals we will get a warning message when we have to consume them.
It would be wise to consume them soon after the final battle

Cosmos

Can you say when is the next Soul Crystal exchange / engraving event? we are overloaded with Soul Crystals from the whip event and this could help clear bag space

R2Mentor

I am currently in the same situation, and nope, no news of SC event or such.
I assume we will just have to wait and see until then.
Sorry for not being able to give out more info regarding this matter.

Cosmos

Is the sylph atoll boss intended to be at unpredictable hours? (it damages people's real life) or they will fix it to be more player friendly? and will AFK mode be allowed in the future for this like for world boss?

R2Mentor

Its not 100% unpredictable, people can just keep track of the hours it was killed at, it will spawn 6 hours after it was killed..
The damage depends on what sylph you use, the battle protection and the sylph chosen counts a lot in the sylph atoll boss.
For example: Wind kills Electro and so on.
...and for the afk mode, no news about that yet so...can't quite say

Cosmos

Okay, thank you.
Regarding the Cross Server Guild Battle, will a new one start automatically after the current one is finished or it's something that it happens once and then has to be launched manually at another time?

R2Mentor

I am unaware about this as well, most of this stuff will be posted in the news and events section of our forum as soon as the higher ups are ready to reveal it.

Cosmos

No problem, i am just checking maybe you might know. What about Hall of Fame that was launched last year in September, is another one scheduled? Do you have any information about this?

R2Mentor

Sorry to seem like a broken record, but nope, no news about that neither.
I can say I've seen unofficial releases on different non-official forums that will be soon, but i guess until we get some last word , final official release, we cannot say

Cosmos

Ya no problem, we wait then. And maybe you know when new troops are coming?

R2Mentor

:( And that neither
Lets just say us mentors are just normal players who give up some of their free time to help around .
but for what news and updates are regarded, we are as much as in the blur as you guys are.

Cosmos

Ah sorry, I thought you are more like a G M - sorry for disturbing you so much. Thanks for all the answers you gave.
Is it ok that I share the questions and answers with my fans and followers? Since they ask me these questions as well.

R2Mentor

Did not give you too many answers :D

Cosmos

Well you helped about King's Seals and explained about Sylph Atoll Boss a little bit and confirmed that we have to wait to learn about other events. That's all answers and I am grateful.

R2Mentor

I guess there is no issue

Cosmos

k, thanks, and sorry for taking up more than usual of your time.

Update:

Thanks to Elia
  • HoF has been confirmed for next month by Elite club.
  • The next sylph atoll boss is 6 hours after the last one was killed.
