1.7.0 Client Release: Cavalry 3.0

In this update, we have heavily focused on making Cavalry mode much more enjoyable and functional than it was before. This includes brand new horses, horse armours, and lances; stat and wave balancing; and more. We have also included a few new features to improve day-to-day gameplay and added an interesting challenge to a few Ragnarok bosses.

To start with, there are four tiers of cavalry classes and items instead of five. This flattens the field and makes balancing more manageable. The new requirement for the highest tier cavalry class, Knight, is now 500,000 mounted xp instead of 3,000,000 which should be a much more obtainable goal. Anyone with more mounted xp than is required has been refunded three quarters of the extra xp as assist xp. For anyone curious, the formula was assist xp refunded = (mounted xp - 500000) / 0.4. Also, since the old horses and lances are obsolete, they have been updated to sell for the full value they were purchased for.

The new horses follow a more linear approach to stats with only one set of stats per tier which should help eliminate some of the metas that had formed around certain horses and their functionality. This may change in the future to allow for more personal preference and choice. We have also added horse armour as a separate purchase for your horse. Each tier has different stats that could apply to whatever you want your horse to be - a very light horse without much protection or a slower tank of a horse to ensure its safety. You can put any armour on any horse leaving it completely up to you how you want to equip your horse. We believe this should make for a much more personalized experience with a ton of horse and armour combinations possible. Customize to your hearts content!

Along with the new horses and armours, we have added shiny new lances! They are much prettier and more effective on the field as you can now stab with them once again. Along with this change, most of the pikeman weapons should be usable on horseback except for the longest weapons like Sarissa or Jormungandr. To make lances more usable for non-pikemen, we have also added a new Mounted Polearm skill which only applies to Cavalry mode. Marauder gets the most at 225 followed by 185 for other pikemen classes and 150 for all the other tier four classes.

There are also a few features in the rest of the game worth a special highlight. By pressing V, you can empty the bolts in your crossbow back into your quiver so that you can reload before leaving cover. To help deal with arrows and bolts getting in the way of building barricades and using refills, a new script clears missiles close to interactive props when prep time starts and the area around a barricade when you deploy it. Odin, Thor, and Loke have learned some new tricks which might cause a bit of mayhem if you aren't careful.

For a full list of changes, check out the next post.

Happy New Year!

General Changes:
  • Cavalry has four tiers instead of five.
  • The old cavalry horses and lances are no longer available and can be sold for their full value.
  • Three quarters of any Mounted XP over 500,000 has been refunded in the form of assist xp.
  • Pressing V empties your repeater crossbow clip and returns the bolts to your quiver.
  • The scoreboard shows a count of each bot type alive in addition to original.
  • Kicking has been adjusted to feel more natural.
  • Native kicking is used in non-NordInvasion modes such as deathmatch.
  • There is a weapon mode indicator at the bottom right of your screen under your weapon image.
  • The welcome screen now displays information players need before they can start playing. For example, the activation code for creating a new account is displayed on the welcome screen instead of as a chat message.
  • At the start of each prep time, certain missiles around interactive props (health pots, anvils, etc) are cleared.
  • When barricades are deployed, certain missiles are cleared around the construction site.
  • Hoplite has gained 10 polearm proficiency.
  • Tournament gear has been rebalanced.
  • Legacy of a Hero and Primeslayer are now one-time quests (per character).
  • Primeslayer is available at level 39+ instead of level 32+.

Item Stats:
  • Snake Spear: -2 damage (46).
  • Corsesca: +2 damage (50).

Other Item Changes:
  • All Zweihander-locked weapons gained a secondary half-sword mode with +2 damage, +2 speed, and -10 reach. This mode is designed to be more effective in close combat because of the higher damage and speed at the cost of lower reach.
  • All Sentinel and Aventurier-locked weapons gained a secondary mode without stabbing. This makes it easier to avoid stabbing while back-pedalling. (This does not apply to Legionnaire or mixed-class weapons.)
  • Hoplite spears are now held much higher up the handle. This means that you will bounce off an enemy less than before and you should be able to fight more easily in close combat. Remember that you can press X with Hoplite spears to activate their alternate mode in which the weapon is much stronger but looses the ability to parry.
  • The secondary mode of all Hoplite weapons have gotten -2 speed.
  • Ranger-locked armour now gives 5% damage reduction after armour soak.
