The thing that's more worrying is that there are less new players joining than players quitting. If this keeps going on the server will die regardless of how much new content, updates, etc. is released. I think it would be better if we gained more new players. Probably almost half of the characters on this server (and all other servers probably) are alts. We just need more new players and less alts, which will make the game more lively and active; increase PvP (which is one of the reasons why people play this game); items are in higher demand; and in return the owner of MD will then get more donations due to increased competition, etc, etc...

So, for now, I believe it is best if the management of MD decide to increase their efforts in gaining new players, instead of attempting to pour out half-assed content as a short term solution to this problem .

I truly wish people would stop urging the staff to release content as a short term solution, and instead would ask the staff to, for example, increase advertising or what not and allow the game to have an increased chance of attracting players. Nowadays, there are millions of MMORPG's to choose from, and without any form of advertising, most of the potential new players may not find MD and may choose to commit to other games.

I sincerely hope the staff will read this comment and take this into consideration.

I hear you, but I think Jade Dynasty in general has a dwindling playerbase. Most new players to date have not been random gamers looking for a new MMORPG but rather players already familiar with JD / PW from playing official or other pservers. I think JD is a pretty niche game with a steep learning curve that's not that conducive to a random new player looking for a new game. I could be wrong, but this is the feeling I've gotten.

We've experimented with google ads but have had no positive results from them. I think the only potentially viable form of advertising we have not yet tried is buying ad slots on gaming sites / pserver toplist sites in sections other than the JD section.

One other idea I've considered is a refer a friend system to incentivize players to advertise to their friends and other gamers. This is tricky to implement in a way that cannot be scammed / exploited, so that's why we haven't done this yet. Given how little money the server makes right now it's pretty hard to justify spending time on features like this without seeing some initial resurgence first.

Finally, I think the big wait on critical fixes and new content has led a lot of existing players to play other games while they wait for us to get the next update. That decrease in players makes the server less appealing for new players as well and it all snowballs. I do think that new content will help revitalize the community and that will be a good time to try some new advertising approaches.

If you have any suggestions for advertising techniques I'd love to hear them. It's not an area that I have had a lot of success with in the past and not one I have much experience in.

The last thought I'll leave you with is this: We still care and we still want this game to succeed. There are a lot of factors that are out of our control when it comes to new content and fixes and we're just as frustrated as you are with the stagnant community and influx of new players. We're open to any ideas you all have that may help.

I completely agree with LuXueqi. I think the server needs more new players.

Usually realm 11 is ''main'' realm for most people,
When you want to buy something you just worldchat for it and sellers do the same.
You PM them and they tell you, come realm 11 stash (they mean sunstream stash) for example.

Hi all
As far as I can remember on official server, you can trade on realm 1, in main place of Sunstream (where the bankers are). Is this the same rule on Monkey?

Such a long long time ago, when I were still a newbie.
Your guide actually helped me a lot 

Incense Mage / Any serious pro mage?

I am aware that choice is yours to either read this topic or help out a bit...
But in advance, thanks if you can help me out.

Well as far as I know, affinity is up to you to choose from Dagos/Felkin/Fuwa
I never go for the affinity that will be a killer or cuzz everyone going for that.
(Exsept Dagos Lupin, lol)

I were Felkin Mage for a long time, yet I didn't master this faction at all. (My heart was always closer to Arden or Rayan   )
So I choose Fuwa

Soo my overall question?

What is that I should focuss on with Fuwa Mage?
What Imbue for Helm/Body/Boots?
(Weopen will be Anti-Damage reduction) that I know

What about rings? Skill acc as always? Or Skill Eva + Full tank Critnull

I hope maybe there is someone who knows more about Mage, and what is the thing that will keep me alive and kill as much as possible
