Patch 9.0.4

11 September 2017 (19:28) by Gamemaster Knighter

Patch 9.0.4

This quick patch is primarily to fix the lag issues, we will have a much larger post coming out later today/tomorrow regarding a massive upcoming patch and the details for the pvp tournament this weekend!
Parties will now have a max size of 10 players.
Parties will now receive an experience bonus for every single unique vocation, not just 4.
Dungeon window will now simply display Awk Lvl instead of Awakening Level to make the amount of players que'd more visible. This is temporary as we will be releasing a custom dungeon finder panel in the upcoming client build

Patch 9.0.3

The doorbuster promotions went extremely fast, many have been asking if we will do another promotion, so we have answered the call!
Any donation of 160 Euros will receive 5 free New Legendary Archlight Keys!

Any donation of 80 Euros will receive 2 free New Legendary Archlight Keys!

Full Patch Notes (It's a big one!)

Greater Dungeon Changes + Additions

10 Total Greater Dungeons are now released, 3 more will be releasing soon.
Monster Essences will now spawn twice as often (1 in 25 chance from creatures)
Forsaken One Boss will now force spawn to prevent people being stuck in the room.
Greater Dungeon Chests Experience Given will now scale based on your teams combined power (higher power team, more experience).

Increased Loot From Dungeon/Greater Dungeon Boxes
Seeds removed from Hardcore Dungeon Boxes.
Increased Chance to get stat stone from Hardcore Dungeon Boxes.
Increased Chance to get 2 dungeon medals from Hardcore Dungeon Boxes.
Increased Chance to get stat stone from Dungeon Boxes.

New Key Fragments
Legendary Archlight Keys and Legendary Key Fragments added in game.

Broken Archlight Keys (New Fake Archlight Key) Also added to dungeon and hardcore dungeon chests in the misc category (with the gold)

These are new keys that are simply forged by combining three Legendary Key Fragments. These fragments can be found inside Archlight Loot Crates. These keys can be used on normal Archlight Crates, you don't need a special or new crate to use these.
Legendary Archlight Keys we're created with the mind set of allowing higher tiered players to trade standard crate rewards (that they may find very valuable, but the top tier player doesn't) in exchange for Legendary Fragments to created Legendary Keys that can be used to get them rewards more relevant for their character instead of more of items they dont need. We feel this will be beneficial for all tiers of players, allowing the high tier players to easier exchange products they dont need with lower level players for access to a key that has products they do need.
Legendary Crates drop a higher amount of crystal coins, a garanteed chance at an upgrading soil, and then a random chance between charged gems, enchantment scrolls, large stat stones and boosters.

Equipment Changes - Making Your Early Game Stronger
We have increased the strength of early game equipment substantially, and also made sure all weapons, staves, crossbows, shields are all on par with each other in terms of their strength based on the vocation.
We have also increased the strength of the second tier of weapons you get at level 50 (now all vocations will get this at 50 too, instead of before how it was 40 for some, 60 for others).
We have also added a third tier of weapons you get at level 125. This gear will have much higher strength than the current equipment you have around this level (making early content very difficult). We feel this will massively close the gap between starting off with or without prismatic gear.

Shields are a Guardians Best Weapon.
Guardians now use shields as their primary and only weapon. All shields now are two-handed shielding weapons.

Bugfixes
We have found and fixed the bug with Awakened Rogues randomly losing dagger skill.
Greater Dungeons Boss Health will now scale more accurate.
Summons no longer leech 50% of the experience from their damage.
The following sets now properly give skills by wearing them - Soft Leather, Leopard, Dark Iron, Soft Gold, Steel, Reinforced Steel, Spartan, Tribal, Heavy Leather, Heavy Plate, Dragonscale, Excaliber. Many of these are crafting sets so you may of not noticed them yet.
Hellfury lever fixed

Misc
Abomination Form added to cosmetic shop.
Experience from Gold Nugget lowered from 5000 > 3500 for turnin
