[Xfire] Chatteox: Hello! We are very pleased to welcome everyone to the live chat with the GM’s of Flyff! Please welcome our special guests, who will now introduce themselves and start taking your questions!
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Hi All
Sabroso: Ola! :D
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: You all may know me as Ceilidhs AKA Community Manager and GM MoretaKittyKat
GM Xagel: Good afternoon everyone! I'm Xagel! I'm the QA Manager for FlyFF. I'm responsible for tech support, bugs, and Version9 Related stuff!
feeLz: hello all im feeLz also known as GM feeLz
Sabroso: Hello, I'm Sabroso. elsabroso on the forums. I'm just a standard GM grunt. =]
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: ChidoriGlance: I have a question: What were you thinking when you decided to make the graphics the style it is. It's cell shaded right?
Answer: well that would be a question for the developers... Gala-Net is responsible for publishing the content that Aeonsoft puts out.
GM Xagel: Question: toonamiguy: Mmm.. i was wondering once V9 is out - will our currents chars be transfered onto the new version?
Answer: Of course! Just like when we went to version 7, all current characters are transferred over :)
Sabroso: Question: Nocturne: Will there be any flying quests?
Answer: Sadly no, there will be no flying quests in V9. But perhaps in later versions. ;)
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: fastman100: Would there be any change in the friend system. Ex: a location spoter?
Answer: For V9, sadly no, but we will be happy to make that suggestion for you if you post it in our forums in the suggestion section.
feeLz: Question: Kingpolo305: At the office, is every day all so hectic? Do you enjoy working the office with fellow wonderful people?
Answer: Everday is rather unique it really depends on the updates that we get on wednesday nights. As long as I've been here it doesnt seem like work at all. Everyone here makes work seem fun and the day goes by quick.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: SnarFlax: I'm attending the Art institute of Colorado and I am majoring in 3D modeling and animation. What do you look for when using 3D models, such as poly count and UV layouts?
Answer: Well again, since we are the publisher, we do not do any of the coding, nor the modeling. That's the job of the developer, Aeonsoft.
GM Xagel: Question: Niles Archibald II: What is the deal with V9 still having De-leveling,6% loss, and no more knockbacks when you said it wouldnt be there?
Answer: We never actually said there wouldn't be deleveling. We relayed feedback from the players to the developers and have changes that have been made to provide a better experience in v9. Exp loss at death was adjusted to provide less penalties for the higher level players. Regarding knockbacks, well we're still relaying feedback to the developers, but from what i've gathered thus far, knockbacks have been puleld from all classes except for YoYo wielding Jesters :)
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Fr0z3n-316-[CSR]DN: How often do find yourself helping players in game?
Answer: Everyday actually. Whenever an email is sent, we do our best to address them ASAP in the order that they are received.
Sabroso: Question: toonamiguy: What will happen to all our powerdice due to the new upgrade system in Flyff V9?
Answer: All the Power Dices will be converted to their respective alternatives in V9. But keep in mind. It's a 1 to 1 ratio for all Power Dice. So a Power Dice 4 = 1 Sunstone, and a Power Dice 12 = 1 Sunstone. So use up those Power Dice 12s quick.
GM Xagel: Question: Ferdinand: are you guys really gonna take out the karma system?
Answer: Currently there are no plans to take out the Karma System. It has been changed in V9, but there are still pk penalties :)
Sabroso: Question: fastman100: Would it be possible if 2 people can ride on a board in Version 9?
Answer: Sadly no. Not in V9. Nor do we have any plans to implement this feature in the future. Boards are cheap enough, and you can always just follow. =]
feeLz: Question: -=RP=- Shadowfox: What were some of the negative feedback from v8 that is not included in v9?
Answer: Most of the complaint are rather the same such as de-leveling and PK worldwide. Although with the new future that we've added such as Jewel crafting and Pets System people seem to have focused their attention towards there alot more.
GM Xagel: Question: WNxKannade/absentman: What is the new set of "Bloody" weapons able to do?
Answer: The new bloody weapons have been created to provide lvl 120 players with some sweet looking weapons that provide great stats. For example, the new Bloody want provides Psykeepers with 1000hp!
GM Xagel: *bloody wand
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: WNxKannade/absentman: I've been wondering about certains stats like "HIT RATE" and "DODGE RATE" will the be later changes to include these?
Answer: Well unfortunately, we don't know what is beyond V9, however, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to email us or post them in the Suggestions forums.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: SnarFlax: Do you currently have any position openings? What are your views on internships?
Answer: We always welcome new applicants. While the GM team cannot comment on specific position openings, as we are not HR, you can always look at www.gpotato.com/policy/career.php
feeLz: Question: <WGO> MegaZero: In the later years of FlyFF, do you plan on adding in newer classes, or just sticking with what you've got?
Answer: Flyff is still young and will be expanding in development such as new classes , monsters and places to explorer.
Sabroso: Question: Fr0z3n-316-[CSR]DN: How long have you been a part of this game? How many GMs does Flyff have?
Answer: I've been a GM since May, although, I have been playing my old Magician on Mia for quite some time before that. Currently, there are 7 GMs on Flyff. Although, some of the old favorites like GM Ziji and Monster are still around, but in other departments.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: SailorMoon: Since pets are getting changed in Version 9, what will become to the cash shop pets already released?
Answer: The pets for V9 are a completely different pet system and do not affect the current pets in V7.
GM Xagel: Question: Kanoma: Why does changing Hair/Face cost so much in V9?
Answer: This is done to provide a better balance in the economy of the game servers. If you want a free hair or makeup coupon, try entering in the guild siege! The rewards for winning provide Hair Coupons, as well as SProtects!
feeLz: Question: thesatan666: In version 9, when you get a pet it say's that you use pet feed as an egg to level it up, but when it's not an egg how do you level up pets?
Answer: After the egg hatches your pet's hp will drop continiously. The pet levels itself within time even if you are AFK. Just remember to feed it and keep its hp full then you should be fine.
GM Xagel: Question: bence0307: What is this Angel system thing? Cause i didn't understand that
Answer: We're still worknig on the V9 PVP site, which will explain this in much more detail, but I'll try to provide a bit of insight as to how it works. Every time you kill someone, your disposition goes up based on a few different things. Think of that like the old karma system. In addition, your kills add to your total PK count. V9 has a new damage reduction system which reduces your pvp damage based on what value of PK you have. After 19 PK's you will do 99% less damage to other players. The angel system provides a means to redeem those PK's and reduce the count from 1-5 per angel turned in.
GM Xagel: Question: Kanoma: Are those Darkon 3/MAS Dungeon etc. Blink Wings going to be sold in NPC shops?
Answer: At this time they are only provided as rewards during events. It's possible they could be offered, but we have no plans at this time to do so.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: SnarFlax: Will there ever be an option to name your pets a custom name, rather than having the default "baby lawolf, baby luia" etc.?
Answer: Well I'm sorry to repeat myself... unfortunately, we don't know what is beyond V9, however, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to email us or post them in the Suggestions forums and we will pass to the Developers.
feeLz: Question: Yugui: will Flyff have Another Gm Wars(Challenge)?
Answer: That is something we definately will be having again sometime in the future.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: K: Can there ever be volunteer GM helpers, people who want to help out, but do not live in the local area of San Jose?
Answer: This was something we looked into in the past, and unfortunately it is not something that we are able to legally do.
feeLz: Question: toonamiguy: What is the max level a pet can be? how many can you have at one time? is it easy to get the eggs?
Answer: The max level of your pet would be S Class. You can only have 1 pet out at a time not including our cash shop pets such as Baby Aibatt, Lawolf etc. Eggs are however hard to get but it is worth it after getting it.
Sabroso: Question: The Hated Hobo: What do you think sets this game so far apart from other major games and why do you think this one is prospering?
Answer: One of the things that sets Flyff so far apart from the rest, aside from the awesome customization of your character and outfits, quick transportation system, and GM run events, is the fantastic community that we have in our game. All the GMs have a vast knowledge and experience in MMOs but one of the major draws of Flyff that pulled us all into it was the great people we've met as we were playing the game. Not to mention: with the implementation of the pets and socketed items, it's all an indication of good things on the horizon for Flyff!
GM Xagel: Question: SailorMoon: Prior to version 7, GM's used to have full shout conversations with players. Now the game is plagued with people posting repeated announcements about things for sale and so forth. Will anything else (besides to what is in place now) to stop this annoyance?
Answer: We're working to get Aeonsoft to add additional spam filtering and features to help provide a better experience for players.
GM Xagel: Question: WNxKannade/absentman: willl The New attack motion be the only way to attack in v9 or will we be able to use the old system?
Answer: No, you can still attack monsters by double clicking, or Ctrl+clicking after you've selected them.
feeLz: Question: thesatan666: Do you think that the ultimate weapons will provide an extremely unfair advantage for those who are extremely rich and high level who will just pk noobs? and is there an option to turn off pk from other people?
Answer: The ultimate weapon do have it's advantages but not just toward pking noobs. The penalty are really harsh when it comes to pking. The option to PK is always on but it is up to the players to hold down CTRL to attack eachother. So there are no such things as accidental kills.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Fr0z3n-316-[CSR]DN: As a GM are you able to level your characters while you are on duty?
Answer: No. While we are working, we actually do not sit in game at all. We are answering emails, and assisting players with their accounts in various ways.
GM Xagel: Question: twemdaskar: Is there any content or idea that you as GM's and Admins would like to see implimented into FlyFF?
Answer: Luckily we're fortunate enough to have developers who listen to our feedback and suggestions. However, overall, Aeonsoft is in charge of the main things that go into FlyFF
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: K: Are there any plans to implement ignore systems?
Answer: This is something we have requested from the developers but we cannot tell you if they are going to or will implement this.
feeLz: Question: The Hated Hobo: will the max char level be raised in V9?
Answer: Max level is still capped at 120.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: <The Hated Hobo: will the max char level be raised in V9?
Answer: At this time, no. The max is the same
GM Xagel: Question: =NoR= Darkfire™: what lvl are your characters?
Answer: I have a Lvl 62 Psykeeper on Aibatt, and a lvl 61 Jester on Lawolf. (Yes, a bow jester, lol)
Sabroso: Question: ShadowFear: What happens if you have like 60 armor and you delevel to 59. What will happen to those 60 items/skills.
Answer: If you are wearing a level 60 armor, it will stay on you when you delevel. As well as any skills that you may have had before you deleveled.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: WNxKannade/absentman: What is the new "HERO" Rank seen in some Youtube videos of v9?
Answer: This is for a later release, not V9.
GM Xagel: Question: lunaachaan: Gm What will happen to Pd and card with the implementation of the jewels ?
Answer: Well Jewels are used for socketing weapons, they cant go in pierced armor, so they'll still be separate. Power Dice are being converted to Sunstones and Moonstones, to make things easier for upgrading.
feeLz: Question: Emerald: Why were Dice changed? And is it now easier/cheaper or harder/expensive to upgrade gear?
Answer: Dices were changed to make it new players to understand. Sunstone is for upgrading while Moonstone is for piercing. It is still the same when it comes to upgrading.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: ArangeL: Can be the GUI customized with addons in the future?
Answer: At this time, there are not plans to change or allow personal customizations.
GM Xagel: Question: nghtmareonsushi: Do the pets in V9 have the capability to pick up items, e.i. at a certain level?
Answer: Nope, they're separate. Cash shop pets are for picking up items, and V9 pets give you added stats! :)
Sabroso: Question: momomaru: Will the level of monsters determin the the type of pet you can gain from an egg?
Answer: All eggs are the same. It doesn't matter what level monster you got it from, the type of monster that you get from an egg is completely random. They are all fairly balanced as well, so there is no such thing as a "better" pet. Just one that has the type of stat that you want.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Black Aura: Will there be any more races involved in Flyff? Such as Elves or Dwarves etc?
Answer: Well again, unfortunately, we don't know what is beyond V9, however, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to email us or post them in the Suggestions forums.
feeLz: Question: Kanoma: Will there be new Socket Cards in V9? Like +4% movespeed etc.
Answer: New card will not be implemented in version 9
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: thesatan666: How much will the Cash Shop Item Mistake of Tamer cost and will there be a possibility to get the same pet again?
Answer: We do not have the answer to that at this time, and yes, you can receive the same pet through egg hatching.
feeLz: Question: Yugui: What Type of Monster Will Drop Pet Eggs? Only Giant maybe?
Answer: Eggs drop from monster level 20 and above. Giant monster has a higher chance though.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: SnarFlax: If I have 3 characters in version 7, and create a new one in the version 9 beta, will there be enough spots for all 4 of my characters when v9 goes out of beta? Or will I lose my beta character?
Answer: All beta characters will be wiped. They will not be transferred to the current V7 servers.
feeLz: Question: The Hated Hobo: How much can pets actully assist you in the game?
Answer: There are 2 pets that can assist you in game, Cash Shop pet ( looting type) and in-game pets ( assisting type ).
Sabroso: Question: SnarFlax: Are the maps going to remain the same as verion 8, or will they completely change?
Answer: The map will be the same as in Version 7. Except for only a few differences: the loadlights have disappeared and Kebaras no longer exists.
GM Xagel: Question: Niles Archibald II: Arent you worried about all the deleveling and the new and complicated PK system and all the things you nerfed is going to cause worldwide quitting? isnt that a major concern?
Answer: We evaluate all feedback provided from players, and relay that to the developers. We feel that things will be a bit different to get used to, but shouldnt be too hard for everyone to understand. Expect a PvP trailer soon which explains how the system works in a very easy to understand way.
GM Xagel: Question: jewmaniac: will you make a version of flyff for handgeld systems like maple story
Answer: At this time we're not aware of any plans to provide a FlyFF Service on any kind of portable console. Although that would be quite fun!
GM Xagel: Question: Fr0z3n-316-[CSR]DN: Will skill points be reset when v9 is released?
Answer: No. Because the skill system is not being changed, we will not be giving everyone a free reskill.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Yugui: When Version 9 Finally be lauched we will need to download another client or there will be one million of updates?
Answer: It is currently looking like V9 will be launched on Sept 13th. it will be a patch, but we will try to host the full client elsewhere as well.
GM Xagel: Question: Black Aura: Would there ever be any mini games coming into Flyff?
Answer: Hopefully some minigames will come to flyff in the near future. Unfortunately we dont have any details other then that. :)
feeLz: Question: Neo (Mushpoie): What ages do you recomend to play flyff? Recently I did a review for flyff through my job and was asked this many times.
Answer: Normally our players ages range from 12 through 17 however we encourage parents to supervise or play with their kids.
Sabroso: Question: ArangeL: I HAVE A GOOD QUESTION! :D, Could be in the future make more servers, for example, french server, german server, spanish server, etc?
Answer: As eFlyff grows, we will continue to provide new service for players abroad. We have already implemented a German service (http://flyffde.gpotato.eu/), a French service (http://flyfffr.gpotato.eu/), and perhaps a Spanish Flyff service will come soon?
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: WNxKannade/absentman: Will there be more things to keep a "Guild" oriented feel to the game?
Answer: We'd love to hear your suggestions so that we can pass them along to the developers!
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Ferdinand: are there anythoughts about a out of game messanger for flyff?
GM Xagel: Question: Zandmannetjuh: When wil the Vampire set Released?
Answer: Ah, the Vampire set, my new favorite! At this time all we can say is "in the near future". I'd expect it to come around a corresponding holiday, but who knows!
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Kevin: Thank you for Reading and Answering This Question :When Will The Shout Box Message be fix to say " You can Shout 5 times in 60seconds" It Currently Says " You Can Shout 60 times in 5 secs"
Answer: Goot point, we will bug that to be fixed again :)
feeLz: Question: thesatan666: For pets, when they get 0 hp, do they delevel or die? and if they die what happens to your pet?
Answer: After a pet reaches 0hp they die. If your pet dies it can not be ressurected as of it is now currently implemented.
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: K: Will we ever have interserver wars?
Answer: I'm sorry that is not possible.
Sabroso: Question: SailorMoon: Will a faster board/bike/broom than the sylia bike be introduced later?
Answer: We aren't allowed to officially say if we will be releasing something better or not. But I'd say there is a good chance that a faster board will be available in the future. :)
feeLz: Question: <WGO> MegaZero: In Version 9 of FlyFF, what do you think is the best thing that has been put into that version?
Answer: The best thing that came to in version 9 would be the class balances in Pvp.

Sabroso: Question: spicyeggroll: Pet Question: Will the Version 8 Pets remain functional in V9? Will they become like the V9 pets in ability or remain the same? Does this mean they become less valuable???? Thank you for answering my questions...
Answer: I will suppose by Version 8 pets, you mean the regular Cash Shop pets. Yes, they will remain functional in V9 as well. The V9 pet system is something completely seperate from the old pet system. The V9 pets will be around to add stat bonuses to your character, whereas the old pets will still follow you around to pick up items. You will be allowed to have both pets out at the same time.
GM Xagel: Question: ShadowFear: Will there still be windows mode for V9?
Answer: Of Course :)
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: <The Hated Hobo: Will there ever be Event pets that can only be gotten on certain days?
Answer: Possible, who knows :) We can't predict the furue XD
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: gsfan17: Will you be able to loan your pets to a friend?

Answer: We can ask Aeonsoft :)
GM Xagel: Question: Oak: How do the GM's feel about how aoe is used in FlyFF and the arguements that surround it?
Answer: Currently, v9 has a pk and non pk channel. On the PK channel you can AOE every mob around. On the PvE channel, its like in V7 where you own the 1 monster you're attacking. Keep in mind this may change in the future.
Sabroso: Question: Neo (Mushpoie): Could we have better pictures of cash shop items on the website?
Answer: When the Flyff-Wiki comes out, there will be plenty of pictures and information about every item in the game. Including cash shop items. =]
Ceilidhs/MoretaKittyKat: Question: Яązзя٭ aka Jarrett: Last question from me: Is dual logging, on two seperate computers allowed?
