Hey everyone,

We’re glad to announce that we have just started our 4th testing run of our Closed Beta tests! Along with some bug fixes and improvements, we’re glad to also present to you one of the major features of our MMO - the Trading Post Economy!

Everyone can now build a Trade Post that acts as a private, secure storage for all characters on your account and as a point of trade with other players and The Crown.

You must keep in mind that, even though you can browse offers of all Trade Posts in the world, you will have to physically fetch coins and goods between Trade Posts. In order to remove the secure way to fetch goods/coins between Trade Posts, we’ve enabled the setting on the MMO servers, which will force you to drop all your inventory items on the ground before you get moved by a Homecoming Prayer.

Your Own servers admins will be able to enable or disable this setting in the server config, once we release a LiF:YO patch with this feature in the future.

You can buy and sell goods when you’re not in game too! Just visit your Dashboard (https://region-eu.lif.online/account/dashboard.php) on our site, select a character and browse the market!

We plan to switch all types of monument support to the Crown currency later on. So make sure that you accumulate a good amount of coins for your private or guild claim.

P.S. Battles are about 90% ready and are on the way! Expect these later in this wave.

P.P.S As part of the preparation for the multiple servers in different regions of the world, we’ve delegated character selection to the launcher, so it can patch the game world that is really needed for the character chosen. Make sure that you select the proper character in the launcher before playing the game.


Patch notes (ver. 0.9.2.0 MMO):
