HAPPY MAY Y’ALL! 🌷

This weekend was full of bug-fixing.  Thanks to CDiggity Aces, and Shaditow for assisting me yesterday!  Also another big thank you to Aces for the amazing new patcher!  (If you’re having trouble with your patcher, please see this post : https://essencero.net/patcher-update-may-1-2021/.

Moving onto the fun stuff 😀

New Features: 
Daily Quests! 

  • Our First of 3 Daily Quest NPC’s have been added.  Say hello to the Item Gathering Quest)!  You can find her in the Quest shop in Centralia.
  • Every day, she’ll assign a quest to you for gathering items.  She’ll ask you to provide her with a random assortment of items to bring back to her.  In exchange, she’ll reward you Cash Points & Experience based on the complexity of the random quest at hand.
  • You may repeat these quests as much as you like, but she will only give you Cash Points once a day.  However, if you’re looking to earn experience, she will be happy to give you that.

Minigames

Hayyyy minigames!  How we’ve missed you so! <3

  • Pojo – (The really mean chicken is back!  He’s walking around Centralia, be careful, he really doesn’t like to be touched.   If he likes you, he’ll give you a prize.
  • Dice – A fan favorite!  Every Hour the game will start, you can join by typing @dice when the announcement prompts you to.  Simply stand on the number you think is going to be drawn.  If you choose correctly, you’ll win minigame tokens, choose wrong and your butt is warped back to Centralia.
  • Disguise – Nostalgia at its finest.  Located in Prontera, this minigame will test your knowledge of Mobs by having you type out their name as the NPC is disguised as them.  Every right answer awards you Minigame Tokens
  • Cluckers – Unlike Pojo, Cluckers actually wants to give you a prize.  This takes place in Payon – Be sure to get there when it starts!
