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. 

Hoplite:
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

  Quest Overhaul
Posted by: Winter - 16-02-2018, 05:20 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (20)

Hello NI community,

For a long time now, quests have typically felt underwhelming or overly rewarding.  The Developer team has taken all of the quests into careful consideration and has redone the rewards, cleaned up grammar mistakes in the text, added missing bots/removed old bots, rebalanced quest requirements, and in many cases drastically changed the rewards offered.  The goal was to move away from quests that focus on sniping different bosses for huge rewards and towards quests that require larger numbers of various other enemies.  Quest refresh timers are also now based on when you accept the quest rather than when you finish it, so if it takes you 30 days to complete Angriff! Angriff! you won't have to wait any additional time to accept it again.  This keeps quests limited in how often they can be accepted without making characters that have already completed these quests have an additional long cooldown period on quests that already take a long time to complete.

Legacy of a Hero and Prime Slayer in particular had large decreases in the amount of gold rewarded.  Do not worry, however, as characters who are already working on Legacy of a Hero will receive the old reward and characters currently working on Prime Slayer will receive 250k and 2 Scales of Fafnir.  Any subsequent completions of Prime Slayer will have the new reward.

Along with changes to the old quests, 12 new quests have been added: Gotcha, Bloody Bastards!, Can't Hit a Moving Target II, Collecting Heads II, Collecting Heads III, In it for the Long Haul III, Prince Slayer, King Slayer, God Slayer, Defender of Swadia, Defender of Calradia, Defender of Midgard, and Rise From the Ashes.
