#1007965 New Titan Items!

Posted by BigGrim on 01 July 2022 - 15:53

I vote for doing nothing till we get more info about the rework for Epics

What more do you need to know? We'll slowly work through older Epics, bringing their Stats in line with the new formula as seen on the new HCTitan. This shall be done via Inventing, combining 2 or more original items with other items in the game. These could be from GvG, Arena, PvP Ladder, etc.

Thank you. 

 

Now, if Epics DIDN'T switch off COA/COD, would that change this for you? I'd rather it not work with those buffs since we've now made the Epics MUCH more powerful.

It's no like they're going away. It's just down to they're new, they require items that are hard to come by. That's all.

#1007875 New Titan Items!

Excellent. :)

 

This is what we're intending to do with older Epics, for example, on the August Roadmap Epic Rebalance. 

 

For those, we'd be using 2, maybe more of the original Epic, and other items from across other parts of the game (Arena, Ladder, etc. suggestions welcome.)

#1007805 GvG - The Rejuvenation

Posted by BigGrim on 15 June 2022 - 10:04

Instead of restricting gameplay for players, you should focus on improving your GvG strategy and planning skills :)

Not what is happening in this suggestion. Just stopping Guild Hopping from happening in the same way other Guild activities have a 7 day start up wait for new members.

#1007796 GvG - The Rejuvenation

Posted by BigGrim on 14 June 2022 - 14:28

1. The first proposed change to combat this would be a notification system; the game could send an “Admin Guild Mass” PM to all members notifying them of the incoming conflict. A separate idea could potentially be to enable notifications for incoming conflicts the way they are now for when opposing guilds take relics. Anything that helps notify individuals of incoming conflicts would be better than the way it currently functions. “The Guild ‘Minions of Mirkwood’ has initiated a conflict against you! You have X hours to prepare for incoming hits!” of which the “X” hours COULD count towards the 24 hour conflict timer, or it could be its own separate timer prior to the 24 hour window.

Agreed. Been asking for that since Conix told me notifications were being added to the app.
 

2. Another issue that was a general consensus is that if there’s a target who’s offline for a few days, then they were likely one of the prime targets. The idea here would be to decrease the inactivity timer for targets. It’s currently a seven day timer, however, most have said to decrease it to 48 hours and under.

I can see this.
 

3. The last general consensus idea was to have some GvG level ranges expanded more. Similar to how the PvP ladder scales and works now based on level, the idea would be to do something more in line with that as well. While leaving the lower brackets as they are (50-300, 301-699), the idea would be to have scalar level ranges to provide more activity. 700-1000 (+/- 100), 1001-2000 (+/- 125), 2001-3000 (+/- 150), 3001-4000 (+/- 175), 4001-5000 (+/- 200), 5001-6000 (+/- 225), etc. The minor change in level scaling would provide a boost in activity in the middling ranges that are barren at the moment provided the compression at the bottom at the “race to EoC” at the top.

Again, I can see this.
 

4. The RP packs need to be updated, and there are other ideas that could inject more life than Epics currently do. Crystalline gear across all the levels available in FS, perhaps some niche potions that are distributed to each guild member at the time of purchase, etc. Having the items available as consumables that aren’t just a “one time purchase” here also helps with the demand of gaining RP as well.

Been needing to update the RP packs again for a while. As for the potion idea, I've wanted that exact feature for years.
 

5. The below are the RP Packs that have been brought up in discussion:

  • Enchant Pack - 100 RP
  • Move Levels to 200; Change to Contain ALL Enchant Buffs (No Cursed)
  • Fortune Pack = Stays Same

 

  • Mastersmith Pack - 5 RP = Mastersmith 200
  • Titan Pack - 300 RP
  • Titan Doubler 200
  • Light Foot 600
  • Avert Gaze 200
  • Teleport 200
  • Leveling Pack - 300 RP
  • Stalker 400
  • Sacrifice 350
  • Overkill 350
  • Animal Magnetism 400
  • Defense Pack - 300 RP
  • Avenger 300
  • Stalwart Heart 300
  • Healer 300
  • Fortitude 300
  • Bounty Pack - 300 RP
  • Anti Deflect 400
  • Spell Breaker 300
  • Retaliate 300
  • Undermine 300
  • Buff Provider Pack - 20 RP
  • Buff Master 250
  • Guild Buffer 250
  • Extend 250
  • Buff Enhancer 300
  • Fighter Pack - 200 RP
  • Fist Fight 250
  • Critical Strike 250
  • Side Step 250
  • Riposte 250
  • Sharpen 250

Seems cool. Can be discussed.

 

In addition to the minor quality of life type changes mentioned above, another change mentioned would be the resetting of the GvG rating every three months or so akin to the PvP ladder with the reward being a simple guild achievement displaying “1st Place in a GvG Season” with the reward potentially being an additional relic slot, or base stamina gain so as to incentivize actively pursuing 1st place repeatedly to keep others from achieving the same.

The ability to provide individuals a competitive aspect to partake in while being rewarded for doing well, coupled with multiple opportunities, over time, to climb and attempt to make the most of a “fresh start” at the start of the three months will also help inject that liveliness into an otherwise humdrum aspect. We already have the resetting of rating present in the game, as mentioned, so transitioning that into the GvG area seems like a relatively easy and feasible way to go about helping bolster individuals’ pride in their ability to conduct themselves at the pinnacle of guild activities.

I have no problem bringing this to the guys to discuss the possibility of these reasonably straightforward changes.

#1007761 25 Level Content! 5076 - 5100!

Posted by BigGrim on 07 June 2022 - 10:15

Appreciate the update to the guide! Only a few items missing - those from the Thieves In the Night Global Event we just had. The recipes are there for the sets, but the sets themselves are MIA.

Oh, good call. Thanks! They have been added, along with a handful of other missing items.

#1007718 Epics: Not Looking so Epic

Posted by BigGrim on 27 May 2022 - 15:06

For instance:

Level 1000 Epic = 4000 stat points
Level 2000 Epic = 8000 stat points
Level 3000 Epic = 12000 stat points
Level 4000 Epic = 16000 stat points

Obviously all allocated accordingly. The stat points don't and shouldn't include the max Stam as they don't hold value in the day to day play.

Moving towards a y=4x system for epics only helps all future releases maintain value as well as give value to preexisting epics as well.


Yea what Toreth said. Having Epics give 4 stat points per level will be a great benefit to epic tier items. This won't make them really that viable in PvP/PvE due to buffs and scaling but in arenas they will be sought after.

 

Huh. That's slightly less potent than out right doubling their stats. But given the information presented, I think we could move in this direction. We'll try this on a few new epics and see what happens. Then, who knows what we might do in the future.

 

*Looks at Roadmap*

 

Huh.

Unable to calm his anger and hatred, he continues his amok in the realm.

The Treon Venom Swamp was once a lush forest but a foul evil grew within one of its many fertile glades. This evil matured into the serpentine Wyrm now known as Illuyanka the Poisonous. The effect Illuyanka had on the forest was epic, as the poisonous fumes the Wyrm exhaled quickly rotted the forest into a deadly quagmire and Illuyankas hunger for the people who lived in the dying Glade grew. Now Illuyankas food source is gone, the beast is moving onto pastures new looking for victims, rotting the land as it goes...

The Unforgiven Queen (Legendary)

The Unforgiven Queen is a tragic figure. A proud monarch who lead with a firm, though fair hand, she was beloved! Such people gain enemies however and the Queen was no exception. She had turned away and banished a powerful witch from her kingdom. This vile creature would not allow this slight to stand, so cast a mighty curse against the Queen. She was bedevilled by visions and maddening sounds and, eventually, she snapped. Seeing enemies everywhere, she rampaged through her castle with her sword, slaying all who stood against her and those trying to escape. When she slew her own family, the curse lifted, allowing her to see what she'd done in the clear light of day with an untroubled mind. It broke her and she fled. Now, maddened and raving about bloody hands and lingering spectres only she can see, she roams the realms, seeking forgiveness but being utterly unable to forgive herself!
