Seem you are the 2 active on the forum :)

Concerning that announcement:
http://icarus.nexon.net/fr/news/article/29501/dev-blog-12-macbain-merchant-update-and-future-content

1) We are in August and dindt see in plan / statement / or anything else concerning that future update of the new zone and lvl cap.
2 )Plus, can you give us more detail on :
"Tempering System Improvement

We're planning on improving the existing tempering system towards the direction of more clarity and simplicity. Plans for this improvement are as follows:
1.Due to the amount of new equipment and changes, the amount of Tempering Stones required will be decreased.
2.Modulate the difficulty of tempering to reduce the players' burden.
3.Make the system more intuitive.

Planning is already on the way and the month of projected update should be by the end of May. We hope you look forward to it as much as ourselves."

3) and if August is not possible can u give us the next date ?

Thank you

    At the moment I have no information indicating dates or any schedule concerning these 2 subjects that you speak off Rider. As far as I know, the Turimnan update and Tempering system are the main area of attention of our Dev's. Now the Tempering system I surely can say that has been postponed various times but I have no knowledge as of why it has been delayed.

    I will forward the thread to the team in hopes of creating some reaction for further details, Rider!

    Have a nice day!

    There are two quotes / statements from the Dev Team in Dev Blog 12 that, so far, they've rather failed on:
    "The Development and Planning Team wants to communicate more with the players and make more content for everyone." Posted under the first image in the Dev Blog!
    "The DEV Blog will continue to update every month to discuss about ICARUS's development." Posted under the second image in the Dev Blog!

    Dev Blog 12 was posted 3 months ago, since then we've had Dev Blog 13 which was posted 1 month ago. Note that Dev Blog 13 did include a brief update on the Tempering System Revamp:
    Regarding the Tempering System Revamp
    - The revamped system has been successfully developed and is under testing internally.
    - We are preparing how to replace the existing system smoothly.
    - The developers are doing their best to deliver the new tempering system as soon as possible.

    So it seems that the Dev Team aren't quite managing to keep to their own plans/intentions. Communication with players isn't really happening and the Dev Blog updates certainly aren't happening "every month". We know the Dev Team are busy (or at least we hope they are), but when they make these sorts of commitments they should at least try to follow up and keep to what they've said!

    My main concern for the Turimnan Update is the part in Dev Blog 12 where they say:
    Since it was released in Korea, the region gained a negative impact in the Korean server. Once it arrives to NA and EU servers, a lot of changes will be made and improved to suit you.
    But that was it, nothing about why the region gained a negative impact in the Korean server, absolutely no information about what changes will be made for the NA and EU servers! The Dev Blog then continued with:
    We plan to release the update on August however, due to how big the update is and the changes that will follow, we would like to remind everyone that this is only a set goal for now.
    Any updates regarding the progress of the development will be explained in future DEV Blogs.
    But here we are in August, with absolutely no further information about the Turimnan Update since Dev Blog 12, because in the three months since Dev Blog 12 we've only had Dev Blog 13 which contained nothing at all about the Turimnan Update!

    It's just rather disappointing really, the silence from Nexon and their Dev Team continues sadly. Without any real information, without real feedback, without much of anything really, how can we, the players, commit to RoI for much longer? :(

    @GrizzlyUK @Cream as of the moment we are still waiting for them to give us more information about the content of the Dev Blog. Once we have the information we will do our best to inform you right away.

    I do understand that you can only post information when you actually have information to post. Sadly this has been an ongoing problem for quite some time now. There is a lack of information, virtually no feedback, and yet Nexon seems to expect Riders to continue handing over our cash based on what? Are we supposed to just trust that things will improve? Do we blindly believe what little pieces of information we're presented with? Do we just ignore the fact that the game and these forums are in decline?

    We want things to improve, not just news, announcements, feedback etc, but everything! Your arrival here is a good thing, it helps to show that the forums aren't just abandoned as some were thinking, I'm also sure that I'm not the only one who hopes that your arrival here actually does indicate that there are going to be more improvements incoming! For now, not only do we hope that Nexon are truly listening and taking note of what Riders are saying, but we also hope that Nexon does take action to improve, not only with the game but everything else as well.

    Pretty funny. If they really wanted to make tempering easier just REMOVE the ellun requirement for failing. Prob solved no need to test anything.

    Half August just passed... it's 3 months delay without saying anything. Are we going to see it happen or not?

    New area and new cap was planned to come out in the half of this month, but still no news. When is it supposed to be released?
    Keep us informed at least.. Just tell us "New content has been delayed to xxx month due to bla bla bla"
    Ellora's Spire Update

    Party Mode for Ellora's Spire is in the works. A minimum of 1 person to 3 people can party up and participate. The more people you have in the party, the better rewards there'll be for everybody else.
    I'd like to receive more infos about this content 'cause I would definitely like to see it. More fun for sure with friends than the solo version we actually have. ;)
    Can you please tell something in regard?
