Altered the site to remember last page viewed this way when you login/logout it keeps the page you are on. Also very useful for guild chat.

Well done on the website again, it looks better every time you update it but I had an idea. The Armory is really good and very helpful but in an effort to help new players and even those which are used to playing Soma why not give it some improvements. I noticed that the 4 boxes beneath the search bar are "coming soon" but would it possible to use them to display specific monster types. EG
Strength: Under this there would be somewhat of a leveling guide and/or list of monsters from weakest to strongest.
Intelligence: Same Applies.
Dexterity: Same Applies.
Even though this is still a test server I have bought some friends in to play but they have no idea what to hunt, even now the stronger I am getting I don't know what or where the new monsters are. I can appreciate this is very much a social game but for those who just want to come online and hunt they don't know where things are. I just personally think it should be on the website.

Another way of improving the Armory is adding the ability to search more specifically, EG.
Type of monster are you searching for? Int
Level? 50 (this would automatically be inputted by dragging the "pinned" Character on your login"
Str? ""
Int? ""
dex? ""
etc? ""
Then essentially it would search for a monster most suited to your stats. This would help sooo many players I think; and if it is all about bringing new players in and even the old esoma ones then this is a great way to help them.

Either way I'm sure Sylver knows what I am on about and I am not trying to discredit the website nor him as I think you have done a great job. I'm just looking at how it could be pushed forward, thats all. Plus I have no idea what to hunt anymore, been ages since I have played soma.

Cheers for your time

If you log into the website and search a monster, it shows how it's stats compare to yours. Altho for this you need to know what mob your looking for, but if your curious about a monster its good for showing you how you stack up against it.

Yeah I get what your saying, like it is good to see how you stack up against a mob but all the same I think there should be a leveling guide of sorts on the site but even like i said; breaking down the search engine to be more precise and "more about you(the player)" would be wise :)

Hmm it is possible to an extent although the searches might be a bit off due to bosses etc. Il see what I can come up with and create a "recommended for you" section possibly :p.

i kinda know what he means well just me thinking anyway this is my opinions


1) kinda like a search engine where you put your str/dex and it comes up with what mob/boss you can hunt

2) maybe like a new and improved leveling guide for somadev so it goes past 100 str for noobs obv

What's the point of "playing" Soma if you are given an in depth break down of what you should hunt and when you should hunt it?
