    Indeed.
    The "pet" looks like a mount. Hopefully that's just a graphic mistake.
    I wish they'd tell us the expirations on those gifts, or what exactly the Storm Growth Potion does.
    But overall, a much better Hot Week than the previous ones.

    Does that mean that it will work on characters over 200?

  5. Default Re: Hot Week: 11/9 – 11/15


    I don't think so since it first appeared in v1.32 and the level cap was increased in v1.36. I would bet maximum level refers to 200.

    Though, it could be that the potion didn't work on level 200 characters because there was no level 201 and there wasn't a maximum bound coded into the item itself, and it might work on 200+ characters.

    Who knows with Nexon though.

    i suspect the power growth potion may still not work if you have used one before. so i will not bother with it.

    obviously they should reset the one potion limit after each giveaway event, but for many hot days so far they have not and potions have not worked

    Considering this event allows you to get two of these potions on the same character, they should post a use limit on the Update Notes, if there is one.

    Of course, this is Nexon...

    Only one useless item for me right now. Another character slot expansion on Broa is absurd when I'm already maxed out on slots.

    Same (well, for Kradia).
    And my storage is maxed as well.
    But, not complaining. These are good items for other people, and some of my mule accounts too, unlike bits or spell traces that nobody needs.

    Also note that, if this Hot Week is the same as previous ones, you must open the box each day, not just "obtain" it, to qualify for the doubled reward on Sunday.

  12. Default Re: Hot Week: 11/9 – 11/15


    The BigWigs potion only gives the exp needed for 199-200 (~1.7b) if you are 200+, not a full level.

    Not even that.

    From Nexon forums:
    Probably due to exp being a 32-bit int back when this potion was created.
    I suppose it's nice that it gives some exp rather than a negative amount like it appears to be trying to, but still... Guess I'll hold on to mine for three days in the vain hope that they'll fix it before then (ha ha).

  14. Default Re: Hot Week: 11/9 – 11/15


    Yes, I was the one that (mis)informed him as that was my initial reaction. We realized that was false and concluded the same thing (overflow issues even though no combination of the exp, 1.2bil and the sum from i=0 to i=30 of 2^i yields that negative number)

    An alternate theory is that there's a hard cap on the item which is why it gave exactly 1,200,000,000 exp since the exp to next level for lv 199 (200 was level cap when this item was created) was a little more than 1.1bil

    (The item is legitimate as well)

    Actually it fits.
    The amount of exp it was trying to give was about 2.58b, which turns to -1.71b if you put it in a signed 32bit int.
    But yes, the 1.2b definitely sounds like a hard cap.
    Nice to know that whoever Sabina asked about this, didn't bother to check (either by running the game or by looking at the code) before they told her to assure the pesky users that it works up to level 250.

    Aww here I was hoping to go from 222 to 224.

    As expected, the "pet" is a 30-day mount.

  18. Default Re: Hot Week: 11/9 – 11/15


    anyone know if the pets is revivable? in particular does anyone have a living temp pet - if you do - does it specify whether you can revive with a water of life?

    most of unrevivable pets say they can't be revived in the description. this one says neither.

    EDIT 2: probably revivable but locked to your inventory, by comparing to cash shop offerings



    EDIT:

    i got a pet.

    O.o

    I haven't actually opened any box yet, but people in my alliance said it's a mount. Odd.

    Unfortunately many un-revivable pets don't say so until they dry up.

    Edit:
    From Nexon forums
    Nexon never ceases to amaze.
