Patch Changes

Cake boxes have been added to the market

World Boss' Auras have been added to the Living Token Exchanger NPC.

Wargate brackets between 5k and 9k power have had their damage scaling decreased by roughly 30%. (please continue to provide feedback to us we can adjust this further if needed)

Now skulled players won't be able to use stairs that move them into a protection zone
 

Changed the reward system to give shards for raid bosses participating more accurately when your contribution is lower
 

Scale Raid Boss fights overall health from raid bosses based on players inside the area.
 

When entering into the event world the Raid boss entry points will be more randomized on Sarandiel and The Forgemaster.  
 

The Forgemaster spawn position will be randomized around the map room as well.
 

Expanded PZ tiles on the top part of the boat in Kraken Defense Navy all the way to the first latter. Further floor change zones around the ship.  
 

All global potions now affect all worlds simultaneously vs separate global instances.
 

Champion's Break (a wargate relic) is now consumable and is a one time use only. You will not yield bonuses by having it in your backpack.
 

Cosmetic boxes from cooking up a storm now reset their cooldown with the story quests. There is a cool down log in the quest cooldown menu on your top bar in the client as well.  

Added a message to notify a player when they've reached their daily limit of candy obtained from Pokechess to clear up confusion.


Made Trainers unstoppable so they cannot be pushed or moved from their spawn points

Disabled Wargates from spawning on Rope positions

Blacksmithing weapon exchange will now remind you to empty your gun type weapon if it has cards in it

Reforged Mastercrafted items that have Ashen's Dust applied to them, will have their upgrade cap increased to +35 from 30

Raid Bosses mount drops have been changed to have a 3% chance to drop to any contributor! 

Kraken will drop Cephalopod mounts (T3 HP/Mana +0.9% Max pool). There are 4 of them and they do not stack but you may own all 4.
 

krakenzz.gif


Sarandiel will drop the Pink, Blue and Green Witch's Soul (Pink and Blue are T3 Skill +8 skills, Green is T3 HP/Mana +0.9% Max pool ).
 

Forgemaster will drop the Moles Mount (Armored Mole is T3 HP/Mana +0.9% Max pool, Mole is T3 Skill +8 skills)
 


Energy system revamp!  

You can track when your next energy tick will happen by using !energy. It also tells you the bonus amount of energy that you will receive based on global potions and perks. This system as a whole has had a lot of adjustments to ensure more passive energy gain to all including incremental energy gain for being online during an energy potion for less than the 60 minutes.

 

Patch Fixes

Changing worlds doesn't significantly affect your energy regeneration (you can check this with the !energy command).
 

Enraging now buffs auto damages (This is subject to further balancement)
 

Explode on death now properly work on Sigil Dungeons.
 

Necromancer Witch Hourglass now spreads plague effect properly.
 

Fixed an issue with dual wielding scaling. This change primarily effects Monks. Auto attacks while wearing 2 claws will not diminish the damage that you were doing with 1 claw. Overall you will be in fact doing around 20% more now per claw when having a second claw equipped, AND will NOT receive diminished damage by equipping a second claw. A long term issue was discovered that resulted in us bringing Monks up to match other classes versus reducing other classes to match how the theory of dual wielding was supposed to work.


Fixed the starting amount of tokens for Team Boss Arena from the Wargates shop to properly need 5 instead of 4.

Fixed an issue where Navy Captains mission would allow you to use rockets to start your progress again and block you from turning it in
