    Hi Everyone,

    There will be a server check today 12th April 2016 at 19:00 Server Time (GMT), lasting for approximately 15 minutes. The game will be inaccessible during this time.

    Changes during this Server Check:
    • Holy Shield will no longer protect against Stun and Seduce
    • Fixed an issue that allowed players to stay in a merchant after it had automatically closed.
    The MapleRoyals Staff.

    If you notice any strange issues occurring since this server check please do not hesitate to create a thread in the support forum.

    The question that remains: WHY!?!?!?!?!

    Because they have taken the protection of the Holy Shield in Stun and Seduce?

    Now for BM / Corsair / DRK will be even more terrible Zakum because they already receive all the damage (mainly BM that has the animation of Hurricane interrupted when he takes damage) and even lose DPS compared to the NL / Hero.

    And there was no reason to remove Holy Shield against seduce.

    There was an exploit that involved Holy Shield being able to be cast without a cooldown, this resulted in parties never being able to be seduced or stunned in any boss fights. Until a proper fix is in place for this issue, the skill has been altered to no longer shield against those 2 curses.

    I just want to clarify upon Dimitri's post and say that Holy Shield is not supposed to protect against Seduce, Stun, and additonally Banish. It was a bug that we have now fixed and won't be reverted.

    It will not be reversed?!
    In short... Usefulness of Holy Shield = Nothing

    It protects against Seal, Darkness, Weaken, Curse, Poison and Slow. Still a useful skill if you want to maximise DPS without waiting to be affected by a status - to then be dispelled or use a potion.

    Horntail and Lyka are the only two bosses that can seduce I believe.

    I know it shouldn't protect against Seduce (did it ever on MR?) and Banish, but Stun I'm not so sure of. Seal, Darkness, Weaken, Curse and Poison are all abnormal statuses that can be escaped by Dispel or a potion, but Slow cannot be escaped. If Holy Shield protects against Slow, it should protect against Stun as well.

    The bug existed since the beginning of royals. I think most, if not all other servers also have the bug because information about what statuses shouldn't get blocked is incredibly hard to find. In fact, there's nothing available publicly. However, our lead developer says the statuses mentioned are correct with absolute certainty if we want to be GMS-like. There's also Zombify and CrazySkull which also shouldn't get blocked, but we don't have this status in v0.62.

    I thought Zombify was an effect that couldn't be blocked or cleansed.
    Since Holy Shield and all cures is used to remove abnormal effects and an all cure can't remove Zombify far as I know.

    My mistake, I had meant to type that Zombify is on the list of statuses that doesn't get blocked. Rather than it blocks Zombify.
