Update 10/1/2013: 
- Due to an OS-level system failure that impacted the disk controller on the Nodeka server, the following character files have been corrupted and restored to the last player file backup date of 9/29/2013: Grim, Haran, Kassadin, Leben, Maestorm, Meier, Meto, Mujaffa, Nibiru, Poppy, Richter Although the rollback to the above player files is only two days, we realize that this rollback could have a dramatic impact on you given that the failure occurred during super unique week. As such, we will take the following measures to ensure a happy player base: 1. Each of the above players should email Nijlo directly ( with a compiled list of loss (items, experience, stats, etc.). Not only will we reimburse you for all of your loss, we will give each player a healthy compensation package for time spent compiling your losses. 2. We will continue running super unique week until at least October 6. 

Update 9/13/2013:

- Antei of hakanai shouten is now an advanced antei prevention ability. It has been changed so it no longer overlaps in prevention type with whispering wind antei. 
- Likewise, antei of formation is now a disciplined antei prevention ability. It has been changed so it no longer overlaps in prevention type with antei of the clouded mind. 

Update 8/18/2013: 
- Circle of bane now costs more to use and has benefits for beyond 100% training. It is possible that we have made this spell a bit too powerful with beyond 100% training. If we find this to be the case after seeing it in play for a few weeks/months, it may be toned. 
- Whispering wind antei now has benefits for beyond 100% training.

Update 6/7/2013: 
- New spell for major remort hunters: hunter's insight. Note I: This spell has the potential to be quite powerful in the long haul. Therefore, we will be monitoring its behavior over the next couple of months. We may make minor or major tweaks to it as needed. Note II: There will be at least one follow-up ability for one or two of the hunter subclasses that will be similar to hunter's insight. However, it will be more refined and more powerful.
