A new challenge named Loulan

Post  Soul on Tue May 08, 2012 2:31 pm

As some of you might have noticed,there is a "new" map that is going to be added.It is a PvP map,regardless the server and once you enter your face will be covered by a white mask(black as seen by others if memory serves).The map itself looks very cool.It was made available on the German server long before.I know about it as I hanged around that private server.

As I said,it has a nice air.One of the best features is that you can take a passage from Tibet to Loulan then from Loulan to Bloody Plains and eventually Hefei.Or from Loulan directly to Hefei(if I remember).

As for the mobs,on private server they didn't have names yet.The private server is like a version of the German server in english.But as for Loulan and other maps,they are not translated,as they have not officially been translated in English.

Back to mobs and bosses,they are mostly reboots,by example a boss/miniboss with Knife of White Shadows texture.

NPCs don't have names or lines either,however they sure sell some nice items.There is one special NPC that got my attention.


ATTENTION:Despite people claiming that the server is okay,many people have been losing items and accounts lately(GC)and GamesCampus suggests you do not try it,or if you do,change your password from GC version,as it is rumored that they have keylogger that actions after installation or error messages.Me myself,I don't reccomend you playing that much,I stopped playing too.I rarely play it and after finishing,I always change my GC password.I wanted you to know this as I don't wish any of you lose your accounts

Pictures speak by themselves...











That is all.What do you think of that NPC?Who might he be?No,I'm nor ironical.It might be The Vagabond moved to a different place(don't do it),or another clone NPC.OR maybe he is someone related to him.

For more informations,check this : http://9dragons.gamescampus.com/news/noticedetail/1/4827

I hope to learn soon about the map with NPC lines.

NOTE:Be careful,mobs are very high.Hermit and above I think.

Nice find.

My guess is that it is indeed The Vagabond himself. Besides of being a 1:1 copy of him down in The Cave, Bamboo Master is in Tianjin and Tibet too, just as Widow Maker in Mount Yanmo and Tibet.

Good to hear that.I just hope with this map,the Vagabond there would get a bigger role.

Some people might say it is untrue because on Private server he does not have lines or anything.The thing is that actually on Private server mobs have no name,neither do any NPC.No lines either so The Vagabond is not an individual case.In the sneak peeks on FaceBook the mobs indeed had name,NPCs indeed have lines and names and all that.So we can assure that Loulan from Private Server is the incomplete version.

About 1:1 copies,that Widow Maker guy,I met him in Tibet on my Vagabond this summer,I was messing around with the teleports.I did not know much about Heavenly Demon so he seemed rather strange to me.I actually just found out now who is he.For I was searching for photos fro mTIbet to post on this topic to show you.HEre are some photos,they are from the time I was RL and your disciple:





I am now very curious.As you are a veteran of this game and I see you know alot,is this Widow Maker saying the same things as the one in Mount Yanmo?(The same Q for Bamboo Master too).

ALso,what do you think about The Vagabond showing himself there?Don't you think he was in hiding.To come to think that when yo upress to tak to him in CC 4 he seems nervous and disoriented...

I was just in-game, checked the new map out before they put the servers offline again. Apperently they have - just as I remember this game - issues on keeping the maps up and are trying to fix it. However, the name of this NPC is different. Can't remember his name, but his title was "The Nameless Wanderer". I'm not sure if GamesCampus just translated it different than Acclame used to (what appears to be like that on several occasions) or if this is indeed another person. But somehow, since everything of this character is the same as of our beloved Vagabond, I highly doubt it is a different guy.

No, as I can see in this screenshot, he says something different. Same goes for Bamboo Master, as far as I remember.

The Vagabond in the new map just says "...", as he used to do in The Cave before Acclame changed it to what he says now down there. But I do think he has some special task in the new map; Probably not for us Vagabonds, since we're so easy to be forgotten, but I think he's not there without reason. Also, since he is/was praised all the time for ending the war, and being some kind of ultimate hero with this persona of a secret guy, as well as being the only one of the heros who fought in the war of the nine dragons in-game and therefore having survived the war for sure, I highly doubt he's just there for nothing - If that guy is indeed The Vagabond. Now, since the developer is Indy21 (not sure when Zerodin Games is gonna take the development over), there is of course the possibility of The Vagabond 3D model character being used for a different person, maybe simply because Indy21 is/was too lazy to make a new one or at least change the clothes and/or especially the face.

The restart is supposed to be the new long boring collection event(exp cards again bounce ) and the amazingly X2 EXP event!

The map is different from the one in the EU server (Atleast that's what I heard) and there are issues with changing maps. Oh and I'm not suprised, but people started complaining about KGs again since the new map came out.

As most of us know the PvP is not balanced in this game at all (And KG just makes it worse). Nukers ruling the new map (Not suprised again) and can't grind there or just look around.

Thanks for the advice, but no thanks. ^^

Actually I'm not really interested in this new map, I don't have any high level characters so nothing to do there for me. For just look around you say, still, I'm not interested.

I totally understand Stygian. When I entered the server and checked out Loulan there were few people around, but the more came in, the more killed me over again. Regardless that - as Stygian already said - nukers owe that place, the mobs are too high for my vagabond - I've checked it out with a low level character.

Anyway, since the servers are up again, I went checking the name of The Vagabond again, and thinking about it, it isn't really anything different than what The Vagabond is.

Recluse Master - The Nameless Wanderer

Would have been better to keep both the same, though.

I know Legend.I was practically a ragdoll there.I went to make some screenshot with The Vagabond,and as soon as I was noticed by someone,I was a punch bag.

And actually,there are two ""Vagabonds" on the map.

Where's the other one?

Oh, and do you know by any chance where the mob/boss, which looks like the Knife of White Shadows, is?

Well,if memory serves,one is one the village that is in the upper left on the map and the other is on the oppsite(the lower right part of the map).Bukrie and repsectively Bukriang on the map on this topic(I don't know if they changed name in this version).

About Knife,the location of spawning is the left of the castle.
