    It is a shame that the devs didn't run a pass to autoconvert the old Risia buffs to Festival versions before making this ML calculating change. *sigh*

    Aye it would, and if theyre applying a standard rule of calculation of min level across all non-named items now then there's likely to be number of bound-to-account items that are also affected, particularly me rings from the Reign of Madness series - +6 dex ring with no min level was rather useful, ah well, not so easy come, easy go

    They can, it is pretty simple as mentioned above. it's not like the whole generate the 'level of an item' concept is new.. run a script that runs against the player DB, or against the player when they log in, that looks at all player files for weapons with they risa icy prefaces and validate them against the old level code. If it is not RR or BTA/C and 2, 4 levels off the code, flag it as festival or remove it and dump the ingredients back in the player inventory.

    Better yet put in an alter where the Boston ribbon thing was (coded in < a day?) for a limited time before the update that a person can put the item in to get the ingredients back, make it a big PURPLE Barney Dopant for all I care.

    I have MANY first Festival items I had to grind out before the cheaters found out how to jump off buildings and ship masts to steal your coins. I refuse to grind vs the cheaters now just because of this and will not remake all of my, now WORTHLESS, items because someone didnt feel like 15 minuets of devel time to write a script that affects thousands of players and probably 10x as many items. <insert old "take of icy burst from one item.." joke here>
