    Patch Notes: August 25th, 2017

    Scheduled Maintenance
    Features

    Limited Offers!
    The following items are available for one week only!

    Giant Juice (Consumable)
    You're not entirely convinced by the theory that imbibing juiced giant organs will help you slay those beings in battle. But anything's worth a try...
    • Increases critical hit chance by 5% against Giants for 12 hours

    Gurston's Gargantuan Gore Gusher (Consumable)
    Most humans who fight giants end up as red smears. But Durston (and his similarly named alter egos) promised that this wouldn't happen to anyone who drank one of his potions first. And he told the absolute truth. Those individuals tend to make purplish stains instead, due to the alchemical mixture within their blood.
    • Increases Attack by 20% against Giants for 12 hours

    Potion Bundles
    Volatile Stamina, Energy and Honor Bundles are available for one week only.

    Promo Code
    A new promo code is now available! Act quick, this code will only work until September 1st, 2017.

    New World Raid: Helsyph the Gravewarden
    Tales speak of great hounds roaming the afterlife in search of easy prey to satiate their hunger. Helsyph is their master and a warden for death itself. She guards the gates of the underworld and allows only the worthy to enter her esteemed halls.

    When a mighty battle has reached its climax, if you listen closely you can hear the baying of Helsyph’s hounds as they eagerly anticipate the coming meal.
    This is a 120 hour, timed event, starting on Friday, August 25th.
    This raid is categorized as Colossal, World Raid, Giant, Underground, Beast, Undead
    • On Hit Drops: Red Splintered Bones
    • Common Loot: Red Splintered Bones
    • Uncommon Loot: Red Splintered Bones
    • Rare Loot: Red Splintered Bones
    • This raid also contains guaranteed drops as you make your way up the loot tiers.




    Duel Event
    For one week only you can acquire Duel Tokens from Duels!
    • These Tokens are used to create items in the craft tab.
    • Tokens are not a guaranteed drop
    • The new Izot's Code Support item can now be crafted using Duel Tokens from this event

    WR with decent top tier... Nice.

    Within our solar system there is a gap in the ordinal positioning of the planets. That gap is currently occupied by the asteroid belt. It has been hypothesized there was once a planet and some extraordinary cosmic event caused it to explode. The genesis, lore, and�history of our game takes place on that mythical planet

    • Increases Attack against Construct by 3,000 for 3 hours"


    Good Thing your not really seeling this to us. Bad thing you thought you would do and did not wonder about it


    EDIT: Come on Devs: Do some math!!
    I did 1 T on the WR and got around 120 drops. SO i will get 10,8k at 90T! Together with the 30k i get from that tier i have around 40k. I need 60k to max out gen. I'm not the biggest hitter by far. So ppl need to go far over 90T (or hit naked) to get this gen maxed out. You must be joking. When ppl do 90T give them the maxed out Gen...

    I don't like how a fantastic f2p mount, which could really help newer players not feel like they're weaker than infants with the power creep, is locked behind a tier which is a struggle for most people who couldn't get loot from Pit of Bones. The fact the tier is so high feels kind of like a slap in the face for those that struggle to even hit 1t

    There's always next time. Not everything has to be handed to everyone. Grow for it and work for it.
    If you want to "ignore" someone on the forum just click their name, click profile, and beneath their avatar you'll see an ignore link. Comes in really handy at times when you don't want to deal with that certain someone's constant negativity.

    There is also a case for letting lower levels get something to help them out. This gives them a positive outlook on the game in that the devs help lower level players and they might be more willing to spend. Not everything has to be a "just get it next time" type of system. Sometimes it's beneficial to give something like that to everyone and inspire just a teensy bit of good will.

    To max out this raid, assuming one hit max tier (90t) with a drop rate of 40% with 20 enery/stam/honor, one would need 30 k drop.Thats 1 500 000 cumulated energy /stam /honor. I have 11440 energy/4k/2680 honor, so you want me to hit your wr for 83 time my 3 bars? really?

    well assuming at some point the spectral bones become obtainable from something other than the mount itself, there is a way to craft the mount from them.

    and really it seems kind of odd that the mount is the only thing that seems to drop the item to craft the mount. almost like someone has goofed the loot table somewhere.

    why do you assume you need to max out the general first time through? at 90T, you for free have half the needed craftables. the general is nothing particularly special aside from a big number potentially one attack and defense. but even there, at just the drops from 90T, you would be able to boosts it attack to max and its defense to halfway.

    so a free 10K/5K general, that can be bumped up a bit more if you willing to work at it. can tell you right now its proc even at max would not justify adding it to any of my legions, too many other generals that do other special type things (ie, boost all troops X amount or mimic other procs and the like).

    so that it might take some over hitting to max it out is fairly harmless. the ones that will "have" to over hit most likely wont have a place for it in most of their legions anyway.

    Yes, and just about all the older WRs and ERs are that way. You'll find the reverse complaint about those here quite a bit - too easy. Overall I think the devs strike a good balance and you really DON'T have to get everything the first time.

    Sometimes, yes. All the time, no.

    Just a suggestion:

    Please add a boost to Izot's Unique Troop whenever you re-release the Duel event.

    (Or just Re-vamp it whenever you re-release the Duel Event)

    Maybe do it for the mount too and all the other Duel event items?

    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: [New WR and fix to pit of bone raid]
    I liked it because: [increases in reward amount and ML are much much better.. i think raids will still linger a bit long but not nearly as bad as before.. thank you for your attention on this.]
    Maybe we could: Monitor performace of POB and see if there are futher adjustments needed.. thank you.

    This week I didn't care for: [Mostly a good week.. thank you]

    I see the chalua gauntlet will be released next week on Sept 1. This may be a little off topic for this string but.. We won't get a SoTG post in time to annouce this gauntlet and/or potential changes or updates to gauntlet rewards in time to comment on them and/or potentially influence further modification to them so i'll put my plea in now..

    I hope with this gauntlet you will be giving another boost to smite and BoM since they are once again falling behind on the magic power curve. Especially for 99% of the population that does not own bom or smite, the damage from bom or smite is less or interchangable to many of the new magics that have been released over the past 3-4 months.

    Love the new World Raid and the upgrade to Pit of Bone's loot tiers. Oh, and the return of the duel event with new loot even.

    Well, the WR doesn't drop any magics, now does it? :P

    personally just hope they will look into some of the damage oddities have noticed. I tend to average 1.5% less damage than the displayed gauntlet battalion damage. its not a big deal, but do kind of wonder just what is getting processed wrong.

    Also can you add a bar somewhere top/bot corner when you join a raid to see your pots bar would help a lot instead of switching back and forth that's like hardest part i think xd
