Paid Character Transfer Queue Reset October 12, 2011

Greetings Daevas!

We will be resetting the Paid Transfer Queue for North American servers on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. PDT (more).

Though we will be resetting the queues, the caps for both origin and destination servers are very small and will not accommodate a large number of transfers. We wish to offer a chance for players to move, however we must also protect the health of our servers.

However, due to the limited capacity, we anticipate these available transfer slots to fill up very quickly. We do not recommend trying to transfer as a group or a Legion to another server; you will be separated from your friends as the caps are met.

Atreian Stock Market — September 2011

Greetings, Daevas!

Today is the sixth installment in our series about Atreia's stock market. Let's delve again into the financial wizardry of the Trade Broker.

The current market is a bull market, due to the massive influx of items from the recent Increased Drop Rate event. Item prices across the board will be slightly lower because of the increase in supply, while demand has remained static. We expect prices to return to standard levels within the next few weeks.

One of the items that has dropped in value over the past month is fluxes. Because of a massive inflow into the market, flux prices are half of what they were last month. Wise Daevas might stock up on high-end fluxes while the price is low.

The price of Manastones has remained relatively stable despite the increased drop rate. This is most likely due to the fact that, while the supply of the manastones rose with the increase in drops, so did demand as Daevas acquired new armor and weapons at a faster rate than normal.

The sale of Stigma Shards increased slightly this month, but the price has remained stable. This shugo feels that the price of Stigma Shards will rise slightly as the supply decreases, but not enough to warrant investment for profit.

Luichinchinerk reminds you that Daevas who play the stock
market take a risk. It may seem that we're in a bull
market, but a Daeva could still end up with NYERK.

Legion of the Month — September 2011


Name: LeftBehind
Server: Zikel (NA)
Faction: Elyos
Brigade General: Sweeeety
Centurions: Skankz, Yzma, Malael, VainCustodia, Redpoppy, Ayelanna, Arrio, Akista, and Firewalker
Legion Created On: 04/09/2011
Legion Rank: 39


How did LeftBehind start?
I was in another Legion with some friends, and after most of the Legion moved on—including the BG— we were kind of left behind, so to speak. We decided we needed to make a new Legion so we could still hang together, and the name LeftBehind suited us!
