1.9.4 Client Release
Posted by: Winter - 2 hours ago - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (6)

Hello NI community,

This patch continues cleaning up item progression and features a complete rework and rebalance of hoplite spears and zweihander sword secondary modes.  Hoplite spears are now much longer and have had certain item flags changed to make them much more pleasant to use and reduce how often the spears will bounce due to odd speed bonus multipliers.  Zweihander sword secondary modes no longer remove length (which led to negative ghost reach) and can no longer swing, but now do high amounts of pierce damage for taking down armored foes.  In addition, alternate mode indicators have been added for polearms that can swap to a stabbing or crush through mode.

Item Changes:

  • Harbinger bastard mode fixed
  • Dragon Halberd -3c, +9p, +2spd
  • Mangler -.5 weight
  • Cursed Mangler +1p, -.25 weight
  • Aegis Shield +100hp, +1 armor
  • Alternate mode indicators added for polearms with alternate modes
  • Hoplite spears reworked
  • Zweihander secondary modes reworked
  • Ancient Greatsword +1spd
  • Durendal +1c
  • Schlachtschwerter +5c, +2p, -2spd, +1.25 weight
  • Talhoffer -1 weight, -2spd, -2c, -2p
  • Headtaker -2spd, -3c
  • Forlorn Hope -3c, -4p
  • Bidenhander -3c, -2p
  • Runic Greatsword -3c, -3p
  • Legacy -1c, -.5 weight, +1spd
Other Changes:
  • Players can no longer vote to skip Prep Time while Wraiths are alive
Scene Updates:
  • Fortress Under Siege (barriers, new beer barrel)
  • Graubergen (barriers)
  • King's Castleyard (removed unusable interactive props)
  • King's Reach (new surgeon table)
  • Nordic Village (fixed glitchy flooring, other minor adjustments)
  • Praven (entry points, barriers, new surgeon table)
  • Swadian Great Hall (entry points)
  • Swadian Old Village (fixed platforms)

1.9.0 Client Release

Hello NI community,

This patch introduces a complete overhaul of item stats for personal crafted teal items and above.  The gaps between item tiers are more consistent and, in many cases, smaller.  This makes House Crafted items more competitive with legendary items, with the strongest Hero locked House Crafted items rivaling even orange Legendary items.  In addition, personal crafted items will no longer feel useless compared to House Crafted items.  Stats that are often overlooked such as weight have also received major adjustments this patch, with many weight progression paths now following a downward trend starting at the personal crafted tiers.  Marketplace and green crafted items will receive attention at a later date.

Throwing Weapons:
Throwing weapons are now separated into three types: spears, axes, and daggers.  Each type has drastically different stats than the other: spears are slow, precise, armor and shield piercing, and highly damaging; axes are quicker to throw, a little less precise, don't fly as far, and very powerful against enemies that do not have heavy armor; throwing daggers are precise and very fast to throw, but they don't stay in the air very long.  This adds greater variety to the playstyles throwing classes have available.  Legionnaire can now use Twigs of Yggdrasil.  Also, due to popular demand, blunt one handed mode has returned to throwing spears!

Other Ranged Weapons:
Crossbows and especially bows have had their missile speed decreased.  This should not have much of an effect on most scenarios, but helps keep ranged players from being able to snipe out far away bots too easily.  Crossbows now all have the ability to penetrate shields, bonus damage against shields, and 20% armor negation.

House Crafted Items:
Players who have elected to use a damage oriented Hero Class such as Warden, Marauder, Zweihander or Master Peltast will now find that their class's House Crafted weapon of choice now has stats very similar to their respective orange Legendary counterparts.  Many House Crafted armors have also received considerable boosts to complement the recent additions to Ironflesh.  This emphasizes the importance of Hero Class selection and gives players an extra boost to pursue the playstyle that best suits them. 

The stats of Hoplite shields and polearms have been reworked to make the class progression less steep so it doesn't feel the class is useless until you can manage to get a Vigilance or Elegy, two legendary items that most will have a difficult time getting a hold of.

Bastard Weapons:
Bastard weapons should all have a secondary mode now and have had their primary mode set to not allow the drawing of a shield.  This will keep players from accidentally using the weapons with a shield in two handed mode and should make swapping a smoother transition - just swap weapon mode and your shield should come out or be put away automatically!

Melee Weapons:
Melee weapons have all been measured very carefully with a very accurate ruler and their in game lengths have been changed to correctly reflect this.  Stats have been adjusted accordingly.

Awakened Legendary Items:
The gods bicker about whose gifts to the Swadians are greatest and war has broken out amongst them.  Appeal to their vanity and create offerings suited to their nature, or turn away from such fickle beings altogether and rely on your own skills.  New recipes are available in Support House Crafting along with the next round of upgrade recipes.  This month's rotation will be removed at 11:59 EST (~2 and a half hours from now).

Hello all,

As you may have noticed, we have been making some changes to the forum.  The biggest change you might have noticed was that the profile layout changed to horizontal.  Sadly, this was infact an error on my part which should now be resolved (sorry).  The biggest changes that were intentional, however, are:

  • The forum is now available over SSL.
  • Embedded images and videos from non-ssl websites have been replaced by links.
What this means is that accessing everything is much more secure.  This has been quite a while in coming and I am glad to see this completed.  As such, we can say that all NI websites are now using https rather than http.

There are a few side affects which will affect certain users:
  • Remote avatars that were not https have been reset.
  • Signatures and posts with images not over https will need to be updated.  This might be as simple as replacing the http with https depending on the image host.
  • We have mass-updated posts and signatures that used some common hosts that support https.
In addition, there will be some more behind-the-scenes changes coming up that will result in some downtime but we will try and keep them to a minimum.

There shouldn't be any other issues but if you find anything then do let us know here and we will do our best to resolve it.

/Nao and the NI Team
