    Limited Offers!
    Following the weekly Limited Offer rotation, the following are 20% off until September 7th, 2018.

    Ancient Feud Gloves (Gloves)
    Kobolds have certainly plagued West and East Kruna almost as much as beastmen have, but since the end of the Dragon War they seem to have retreated into their dens, biding their time for a future uprising no doubt.
    Attack: 6,550
    Defense: 4,500
    Ancestral Bloodbath:
    • 10% chance to deal 25% damage against Beastman raids; Extra 5% damage against Beastman raids for each unique piece of Ancient Feud set owned; Increases Player's Health by 5,000; Increases critical hit chance against Beastman raids by 2%; Set 7: Increases critical hit chance by 2%

    Ancient Feud Leggings (Pants)
    Though they were soundly defeated during the Dragon War and many other legendary battles, beastmen still thrive on the idea that their rule should be uncontested and their strength unmatched. While it is true their bestial fury is unique among their kind, strong Krunan steel and potent spells of old seem to send them scurrying back to the shadows.
    Attack: 6,550
    Defense: 4,500

    Fixes, Known Issues, and Updates
    • Update - Significant backend changes will be rolled out over the coming weeks. Today we've focused our backend changes on Kongregate specifically. This should fix some serious performance and stability problems that have come up recently.
    • Update - The bulk of the Dawn team will be off Monday, September 3rd so the Event Tiles have been updated to reflect new summon dates for Engines of War and All that Glitters (now summoned the 4th instead of the 3rd)


    Handy Feedback Format
    My very favorite thing about this week's update is: [Insert your favorite thing]
    I liked it because: [Please explain why as best you can, the more specific you are, the better]
    Maybe we could: [Tell us if you want us to bring this event back, if you think we can do the same thing a new way, etc]

    This week I didn't care for: [Insert what you didn't like]
    I didn't like it because: [Please explain why as best you can, the more specific you are, the better]
    Instead, let's: [Tell us how we can improve something like this in the future]

    Could you please think about introducing a 1000 stam/ene/hon button for ERs/WRs?

    If the new NIP is strong against Elite raids, why did you give us 2 new Deadly raids instead?

    Just curious.

    Glad to see the ridiculous CD timers for the new deadly have been reduced. We'll see if the sps rewards are worthy of 160 hour cool down and at least comparable in magnitude to the recent massive non-deadly raids that have been released.. if not, this will be complete waste of another 2 deadly raids (again).

    Entire NIP that is only usable on Elites...? I say this even knowing the fact the set has 2% crit like many other crit sets, but only Elite? Seriously? When has an Elite raid been so hard that standard crit gear didn't do that job?

    Overall, meh patch. Kinda sad we have an MP with 2 rows of troops that is focused on magic. Yes, even with the PC-Gaining potential... Maybe leave magic Packs in the Relic Packs?

    Im glad that the game is still open, now you are adding new sets nip, and bazar ones that are really unuseful, the sets are almost made to hit just 1 raid.
    we have had problems with the servers down for like 2h or more and the staff did not say anything so annoying.....
    no compensation no explication, that is what nice job...

    If a new Elite raid was released with reasonable health, it would essentially just be a Deadly raid for which 5PG wanted to screw players out of AP. I hope we never see another new Elite raid.

    The question might be why bother releasing a set strong against Elite raids.

    Pretty crappy new magic in the NIP. Oh, it will be wonderful against Elite raids, but total garbage against anything else. I suppose that's fair since the entire set fits that description.

    The Bad: Two weak ERs this week, a similarly weak repeat quest event announced for next week

    The Good: I guess that means they're REALLY busy with the back-end improvements. That's of course worth a few weeks of unexciting content - after all, what good does an exciting event do us if we can't log in or hit.

    The Ugly: An essence to keep the Wizard tower busy for 15 days (most backlogged building gets another long craft), another to take 33+ days' worth of daily tokens hot on the heels of a big daily token eating update and then a 25+ day troop (yeah, hoarders will be happy). Still nothing to use the masses of Sergeant and Officer manuals, Steels, Fodders and Leathers on. Now those would have been some good materials for these two raids!

    The Beautiful but pointless: I really wish I could get that sweet Dune Stalker art on a set worth buying. One of the most beautiful sets ever made, with one of the worst value for money propositions.

    I'm really surprised they released another Elite set, they're not necessary and I can't believe they sell much of them. Elite's just aren't that hard to kill, so powerful gear is not needed and a waste of pc.

    I'm also surprised to see Deadly Reaper Mantis considering there's already the Elite Reaper. First time doing an elite and deadly for the same monster, seems weird. And no haste necks so not going to be as popular as the other deadlies.

    To The Bad: I mean... Gold Event Raids doe.

    To The Good: Fixing lag and other horrid things in the game would be very nice.

    To The Ugly: As a player who has all of Wizard [Save for Magics] finished, all I see is another large amount of wasted time since my Arcane Jewels are still low in supply. However, I do understand the pain for any remotely new players. Wizard Tower is horrid. Along with this, the grind for Daily Tokens has now become another form of Wizard Tower. A painful grind that will most likely get another long and painful one. Would rather see the Citadel Crafts used once again so I can stop having over 400 of them [Please no 200 per crafts doe]

    To The Beautiful, but still pointless: I will admit, the Dune Stalker set is rather stunning. Would love for them to make a cosplay set of sorts. A set based on the current NIP or Bazaar set. Sure, they would have to find a way to make it annoying to get, but just for the visuals I would love it. Dune Stalker would most likely make it onto my Vanity.

    They know that Elite Sets are a waste of time if they cost PC, but that won't stop them. Chance at money is a chance at money. If anything, this set was made to look rather divine just to use the appearance as a selling point.

    About the new Elite set, since Elite raids give no AP, Elite set is NOT in the buying schedule! So simple!
    I don't owe you my money, you'll have to convince me, to entice me, to woo me to get it! Got it?
    (Corrected!)
    And you have to end Capital Controls in Greece!

    My favorite thing is the deadly raids, more raids more ap. Hopefully the sp is good for them and nice to see some variety for the other types.
    Maybe we could get some smaller raids out of quest events for lower levels and more to do.

    This week I am not interested in the New Item Pack. Still work on ap and really still do not hit elites, shrug. I do realize you try to appeal to others but I would like to see more combination gear. For instance the beast, beastman was a good combo and seemed very worthwhile.
    Thanks for all you do.. Cantrip.

    I thonk if NIP is Deadly tag boost instead of Elite, it will be much more interesting for people and make sense why they release 2 deadly today. Really not a fan of it and pretty pointless NIP.
