I don't understand it. There's timers on everything from the attendance event. Some I guess I can understand but megas, of all things? Damascus steels?

Can someone shed some light on this?

    I'm pretty sure they just kinda threw this together hitting Copy/paste on all the items
    Which explains why Dama Steel which requires a crapton of work to obtain enough expires hilariously

    What does Expired steel even taste like?

    Not that I'm not grateful the game is free even if I don't sound like it. At this point I'm more grateful to the players who support this game through NX than the company itself.

    if i may play devil's advocate for a bit, making these items unhoardable keeps actual game activity (specifically trading of equipments and materials) up in between content updates, rather than encouraging log-in-and-afkers

    of course, making the items earned through some sort of ticket system would do the same and allow us to keep them permanently. wow what a revolutionary idea, i know.

    And then they throw a curve ball with the max +15 coupon expiring in 7 days rather than date expire on the 31st like everything else. Lost my coupon this morning cuz i was too tired after new years.

    What makes you think KR took over? From what I've seen, it's always the NA publishers that are stingy. This has been the case throughout the years going back to when the FUD twins (Dealer/Aqua) were still around and we had actual community managers (I'm referring to the stinginess like us getting a nerfed version of Golden Time compared to other regions).

    Korea took over around this time last year. That is why all the maint is done near midnight + every video communication from Nexon has been from Korea (see basically the only one which was the 8th anniversary...)+ why support responds so quickly in the middle of the night.

    All the US folks were fired Dec 2017 time frame. (Just take a look at their activity logs.)

    Nexon decided to just give us the bare bones support and see what $$ they can get out of us. Heck we haven't even gotten word on the broken event that was suppose to be going on the last 2 weeks...

    Every time an official message is posted is near midnight PST. They are all on Korean working times.

    (The only maint. ever done on a normal US working hrs is now done by the server support. IE forced patch Tues by Microsoft. I don't know if Nexon needs to have anyone from Korea involved, but if it is like my work they just auto do and you have someone on call if there are issues.)

    Wow, this is news to me, but then again I semi-retired from the game since that patch (forgot the name) that nuked all the S2 content and got rid most of the of 8 man raids. So is Nexon NA gone completely? Are games like Riders of Icarus or Maplestory also run out of KR now??

    Meh most of them are crud. And you can at least make an aby shard grade 2 that wont expire. (I don't know why they are giving us 3 aby shards but only 1 myst shard).

    Very surprised they didn't give use one +11 rune let alone a +12. Something seems off to say the least. (No unbinds pots too.)

    Where can we make grade 2 shards from grade 1?
