For a while now, we have been monitoring the changes made to the client during each server maintenance. Our IT dude has been set by us on so-called ‘data mining’. Using relatively easy methods, our dude is able to shed more light on the patches made to the client.

When we saw over one-hundred patch files in the FlyFF launcher during yesterday’s maintenance, we became curious. We were not disappointed and want to share our insights with you.

Why do the official patch notes not tell us everything

Before we start wallowing in the ultra-secret alterations, we would like to take up a question. Many other players have noticed that the launcher had a whole lot of things to patch as well. This piqued their interest (as it did ours), since nobody was willing to believe that only a server restart had been performed. Granted, the NPCs of the ‘Run of the Dumb Bulls’ and ‘Silver Hearts’ events were removed, but that surely does not comprise one-hundred patch files.

Publishers often remain silent about these kinds of patches, as they usually serve as preparation for future things to come. For example, this has been the case with our leak concerning the ‘Scroll of STA’. We had noticed that the ‘Scroll of STA’ gained an item description in the German version of FlyFF. Shortly after, it had been used in a sale.

We seem to have stumbled upon a similar case this time as well. Beforehand, we would like to get to a few other, not communicated changes, which have been made to monsters.

Small monsters on steroids

We were seriously taken aback by what our IT dude had found concerning the monsters. Two of them seem to have gotten a hefty shot of vitamins.

First, there is the ‘Mocomochi’. The client shows the following changes made to the parameters of this fluffy fellow:

- MI_MOCOMOCHI1 IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_001456 AII_MONSTER 15 15 15 15 0 0 = BELLI_MELEE = 1 = = RANK_LOW 0 = 1 = 0 0 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK1 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK2 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK3 = 9 = = = = = = 1000 3000 10 100 110 130 0 = 0 1 = 0.03 = 0 = = = 98 -0.3 0.3 0 0 0 798 = = = = 0 0 0 = = 1 II_WEA_HAN_HAND VT_ITEM = = = = = = = = SND_ITEM_ANIMAL  SND_PC_DMGWANB = = = IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_001457 AREA_NORMAL = 31

+ MI_MOCOMOCHI1 IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_001456 AII_MONSTER 15 15 15 15 0 0 = BELLI_MELEE = 160 = = RANK_LOW 0 = 1 = 0 0 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK1 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK2 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER1_ATK3 = 9 = = = = = = 1000 3000 999999999 100 110 130 0 = 0 1 = 0.03 = 0 = = = 98 -0.3 0.3 0 0 0 798 = = = = 0 0 0 = = 1 II_WEA_HAN_HAND VT_ITEM = = = = = = = = SND_ITEM_ANIMAL  SND_PC_DMGWANB = = = IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_001457 AREA_NORMAL = 31

Two changes become very apparent here. The first concerns the level, which has been raised from ‘1’ to ‘160’. The second concerns the HP. The health points have been raised from ‘10’ to an astronomical amount of ‘999,999,999’.

Looking back at the announcement concerning the ‘Fluffy Invasion’ event, we remember the ‘Mocomochi’ being taken out and replaced by the ‘Pinata’. We are going to go out on a limb here by saying that this replacement was most likely executed due to the changed done to the ‘Mocomochi’. After all, the fluffy monsters only take one point of damage per hit during the event. With a total HP amount of a billion, you would probably take a while to take one of those little fellas down.

Violet Magicians also had one magic potion too much

The ‘Mocomochi’ were not the only monsters subject to change. The ‘Member(s) of the Violet Magician Troupe’ also had a deep look into their potions. The following changes can be found in the client:

- MI_VIOLMAGICION    IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_000714    AII_MONSTER 14  20  62  40  42  34  =   BELLI_RANGE =   22  =   =   RANK_NORMAL 0   =   =   =   220 260 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK1    II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK2    II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK3    =   =   =   =   =   =   =   =   1120    3000    2972    185 30  130 0   =   0   0   =   0.075   =   0   =   =   =   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   =   =   =   =   13  0   0   =   =   1   II_WEA_HAN_HAND VT_ITEM =   =   =   =   =   =   =   =   SND_ITEM_ANIMAL     SND_PC_DMGWANB  =   =   =   IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_000715    AREA_NORMAL =   31

+ MI_VIOLMAGICION IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_000714 AII_MONSTER 14 20000 62 40 42 34 = BELLI_RANGE = 22 = = RANK_NORMAL 0 = = = 220 260 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK1 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK2 II_WEA_MOB_MONSTER2_ATK3 = = = = = = = = 1120 3000 122400000 185 30 130 0 = 0 0 = 0.075 = 0 = = = 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 = = = = 13 0 0 = = 1 II_WEA_HAN_HAND VT_ITEM = = = = = = = = SND_ITEM_ANIMAL  SND_PC_DMGWANB = = = IDS_PROPMOVER_TXT_000715 AREA_NORMAL = 31

These blokes had their stamina stat raised to ’20,000’ from ‘20’ and their HP went from ‘2,972’ to ‘122.400.000’.

Why did these changes to the monsters happen?

Frankly, we do not have a clue. We cannot fathom what WEBZEN or Gala Lab may have thought of while applying these changed. On the side of WEBZEN, a statement is still lacking as well. Particularly the changes made to the ‘Member(s) of the Violet Magician Troupe’ may be a future cause of problems. If we remember correctly, they are part of a low-level quest line.

Maybe something specific is in the planning for the future. We are just left wondering why one would change existing monsters for such a purpose, rather than create new ones altogether.

Interesting Sales may be headed our way

Let us get to the highlights now. Besides changes made to the two monsters, a wide pallet of new items has been thrown into the client. Most of it was once again meant for the Filipino and Taiwanese FlyFF version. But our versions did not leave empty-handed. Among our findings were new fashion sets, a mount and two pets.

Blood Dragon Sets

The old Dragon King sets are being granted a new offset. Going by the name of ‘Blood Dragon Set’, these sets return in the already known variants of ‘Almighty’, ‘Fierce’ and ‘Wise’. The Filipino version of FlyFF already has the ‘Almighty Blood Dragon Set’ in the shop, therefore the stats and set effects have been published there as well.

Old pets, new fur

The ‘Mocomochi’ has already been a substantial part of this article and it desperately wants to remain a relevant topic, as it seems. Not only have changes been made to the monster version, the ‘Mocomochi’ pets also have some news for us. The normal ‘Mocomochi’ pet will be joined by two new playmates: the ‘Pink Mocomochi Pet’ and the ‘Rainbow Mocomochi Pet’.

NameDescription
Pink Mocomochi PetA cute, pink Mocomochi that follows its master around and picks up dropped items.
Rainbow Mocomochi PetA cute, rainbow color Mocomochi that follows its master around and picks up dropped items.

New mount

Lastly, we have discovered a new mount. This one poses a few questions though. It seems to be an orange Harley named ‘Blue Bike’. Something just does not add up…

NameDescription
Blue BikeMaximum Speed: 276 km/h.
