First of all, let me tell you what we did. We made it possible to craft gems to put into equipment sockets (See item post in Information). Next, we made three new banners you can vote for to decide which one gets put up. Third, we made it possible to disassemble items into Gem Shards (For gem crafting. Also see Items post). And last, we revamped character creation, making starting money to a set amount of 800 gold coins and three health potions. To compensate the new players for the old players getting more money, we give everyone a voucher for one free item at any shop in floor one!
