From what I seen and experienced lol....
There are two patches, one is full patch...which allows you to see you're character
actually move, see his/her skills, ride mounts properly, but CANNOT use item mall
The mini patch is the exact opposite....you're character moves in an odd way, with arms
stretched out and legs apart, thus having him/her skill like that (u wont see skills/pot)...
and when riding mounts, then coming off..its as if they are still on an invisible mount...though item mall DOES work lol
What im saying is that....use mini patch for buying ALL ur cash shop stuff, then if you want...switch to full patch and have fun with skills and experience the game the way it was meant to be ^^
