HCIM and Lamps Issue

Date: 09-02-2020

So this post is essentially going to detail what we're going to do for both of these issues;

 

So for HCIM (Hardcore Ironman) If you died to an otherwise safe death then you will be granted your status back upon investigation. I will need you to send me your in-game name via Discord; Jordan ?#3506. I'll be going through the logs to check your death and if I feel your death was as you say then your HCIM status will be returned to you.

 

As for the issue with lamps and how they were used for Dungeoneering. I will accept that the skill not being disabled is on us but I do believe I stated multiple times that Dungeoneering was disabled. With that said we will not be issuing a refund for those who used their lamps on this skill. I apologize for it but that is our decision.

 

 

Thanks for your continued support,

Novite Staff Team
