1.6.2 Client Release - Terath - 19-08-2017

Hello, fellow Swadians!

This patch brings new model and texture replacements for otherwise lacking items, some balance changes to a select few items, map updates and fixes, and other various (although important) changes.  Probably the most notable one is the Wall Barricade hit point change.

Wall Barricades have had so many hit points, they have gradually been replacing shielders entirely in runs instead of assisting them. By dropping the hp of Wall Barricades, we hope to encourage the use of shielders once again. To compensate for the lower hp, Thor's Mjolnir AoE against barricades has also been dropped.  This means Thor should not really pose a bigger threat than before but normal Nords will. This might be tuned further once we see how the changes effect real runs.

Thanks for putting all the work into this despite the low player count!
Do the the drop adjustments fall under "various changes" or are they yet to come?

Poke me on steam or here when they´re here, I´ve got no stuff to play with and looting was always exciting, I remember each single drop I had and the feels with it.

Nerfing a wall to make shields more viable? The reason people aren't shielding is because it's not fun and it's not rewarding. Now you will simply be left with a nerfed wall and still no shielders. You have to make shielding fun or rewarding or both if you want people to do it


RE: 1.6.2 Client Release - Alphaa - 20-08-2017

The reward is gonna be the success of run, at least that´s what I´m expecting.
