Interaction Speed edition

Game info:
>Dungeons and Dragons-esque PvPvE extraction looter
>Can play in trios, duos, and solos

Playable classes:
>Barbarian, Cleric, Fighter, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard, Bard, Warlock, Druid (releasing soon)

Three areas to explore:
>The Ruins of Forgotten Castle (three maps of progressing difficulty)
>The Goblin Caves (one map)
>Frost Mountains (one of three maps released, WIP)

Playable races:
>Human, Elf, Orc, Skeleton, Lizard (the difference between races is a miniscule attribute difference, races are buyable through shards; a currency earned or bought)
(more races to come)

Beginner tips:
>This game is not forgiving, you will die a lot at the beginning and when you get better you will die even more
>You don't have to take every fight; sheath (X) weapons to run faster
>Moving only backwards (S) is slower than forward or strafe movement (W/A/D)
>Fighter is good for learning the ropes as a solo player (tip: use the Sprint & Second Wind skills)
>There are static exits (look at your map) and randomly spawning portals you can activate to escape the dungeon
>The game is in Early Access, so it is constantly changing and receiving new (often weekly) updates that significantly impact the core gameplay

for reference Ruins --> Crypts --> Inferno AP cost at Demigod was 700

>>
>>1216336
They did say they were rebalancing it particularly to make it so pvp is actually good for AP. Wouldnt be shocked if they massively over correct and the only realistic way to gain AP at later levels is to get a ton of pvp kills. They may also tone down the buy in cost keeping it there to hopfully keep no lifes from becoming demigod week 1. Guess we will find out friday.
>>
>>1216353
pretty sure at the end of last wipe 1 kill was 99? AP. so that was already good, no clue how this will be if you're hitting demi fees at Voyager I. Either way, if there's no solo ice caves I won't even play leaderboards this time around. this might be my out to stop pouring so much time into this game so its a good thing

I understand. Honestly the map lock by players thing is the worst part of this patch and its criminally under complained about. Though I guess most of the player base doesnt care since they either get their arena "light" or the full pve experience in the crypts/hell.

around 130hp (+6hp on staff) with ~30 will and a lowly ~49% magic bonus. I might've had +5-6 add magic

Thanks.
Considering how prevalent casters are this season I have to start running Song of Silence on my bard, shit is getting out of hand. Btw are you an EU player?
>>
>>1218836
I'm NA. I've been killed once by SoS and I didn't expect it so that's pretty smart. When in doubt just hug a corner/pillar and kite out spells and if the wizard has a staff use your ranged attacks.
>>
>>1218838
Yeah I know the counterplay, my problem is mostly that I have very little room for error due to low magic resist and not much health. The reason I ask about Knowledge is because Song of Silence can be a self-grief if the wiz has a lot of Knowledge and can fuck me while I'm trying to cast the song. Ignite tank wizards shouldn't be an issue in that case though.
>>
>>1218860
what is bis to you? can you not spare a roll on some of your gear for Max HP+
>>
>>1218874
My current build has 113 before buffs, but magic damage still shreds it since I spec into move speed and true damage primarily. I try to fit max HP on my headgear since I don't need specific stats there. Chests and legs need mandatory +2 All so getting health on top of that would put those items at 1000g or more on the marketplace, and I don't like spending all my gold on super BIS. Same with gloves that have +2 true, additional health rolls make them hundreds if not thousands of gold. If you're solo it's better to have multiple good kits than one phenomenal kit, because you will inevitably die to something out of your control regardless of gear.

>>
>>1219876
The usual tons of people moaning and complaing about this or that so 100% your gonna hate something about it. I quite enjoy it right now. Biggest issue this second is maps are locked to players which sucks. Meta is some combination of spellcasters are strong and melee users are stacking to like 80% PDR.

>>1219877
>Biggest issue this second is maps are locked to players which sucks
I stopped playing before that feature was added, so it doesn't really concern me much. Rogue having some of his abilities combined sounds nice, but the patch note of adding a shimmer to his stealth is worrying. Is it like when they added the after image to Wiz's invis?
>>
>>1219896
You literally make a sound when you use Hide, and when you move it's super visible. The meta for rogue right now is Rupture, Cut Throat, and the Creep perk which silences your footsteps entirely. Add a hand crossbow to the mix and you're set.

Don't like that that at all, what's the point of hiding if you're not actually hidden? I was always more of the loot goblin "oh shit, run away" Rogue instead of running gigamaxx damage Rogue anyway. I like the idea of cut throat getting more play, but not because the other options got nerfed

>>1220882
Ranger requires a lot of game knowledge and skill to be effective. #2 on solo leaderboards last season was a Ranger (https://www.twitch.tv/vincennt7), if you really like the class consider studying what he does
If you want an easy life just play Cleric or Fighter, that shit is brainless for a new player.

>Why the hate on Chivalry players

If you've played Chivalry, Chivalry 2, or Mordhau, then you know exactly why the hate exists. They are the sweatiest, niggeriest cunts on the entire planet. Anything that you put infront of them, they will pour over and start vomiting out optimization strats for until every possible ounce of fun is wrung out of it, and all that's left is a tangled mess of perfectly optimal options in a given scenario, and your only options to actually play the game at that point are either to spend 3k hours learning every single one of them so thoroughly that they become as breathing to you, or to just not play. They are the people that produce and consume the "How to get broken OP in [Game]" videos, they are the people that watch RyanSixDaysAWeek. They are a cancer. They are the inevitable death of fun through autism.

Neophyte delusions. I wish people were wearing high-end gear because 9/10 players I kill have nothing worth keeping let alone selling on the market. Most people in this game don't even know how to properly make a kit for their class, nor even understand what stats/enchantments to acquire.

>noooo you can't just confuse your opponents with your movements because you can't ok!!??
Sounds like a skill issue and you need to git gud to me. I would be curious as to how the lizard spin looks from the opponent's POV though. DaD's combat is barebones and has no way for a majority of the classes to even block incoming attacks. Shit, the shields barely block attacks at times. I WISH DaD played more like Chiv 2

>>1222671
>They are the sweatiest, niggeriest cunts on the entire planet.
That's true, trying to fight some of those high level players in Chiv can be ass, but it feels more skill based compared to DaD's gear stat dependency. I hate how DaD attracted a ton of sweatlords who turned it into a fucking deathmatch game instead of a dungeon crawler

this was with virtually a full inventory of treasures and killing several sub bosses on ice caves. You basically have to get an inventory of high quality treasures and grind PvE/interactions if you don't want to PvP but still rank. Which means you can't extract gear at the higher end unless your treasures are all single slot purples or something

Yep. Stow your weapon and run away, or use ranged if you have the speed. It's actually one of the easiest things on Warlock to counter imho. Also in normals you should take your clothes off and run only boots and gloves, maybe a hat if it has stats, since you have to kite for your kills (and need as much speed as possible).

you need to go all treasure to maximize your AP gain and what's more, you virtually cannot do it without hitting the hoard pile.

The hoard pile is just a generator of wealth and it feels weird having the game revolve around it in order to progress in the game.

Hoard piles should be rare and not something required

Not him but this could get a little nasty potentially.

I learned last wipe not to main wizard, with so many sweeping changes/nerfs it's hard to keep up. Shit like barbarians getting a shield and you miss/they block your slow? GG. The fact that shields block hit scan spells baffles me.

Players are retarded too, most of the player base just w keys which is why when I switched to fighter last season demigod was easy, the only class I had issue with was good Rangers.

Also no knock spell for wizard, just fucking make the arcane lock thing unlock/open already locked objects

What do you build as wizard? Just spam as much magic damage and I guess health/movespeed as you can get?
>>
>>1229577
>HP
>Magic Power (at least ~50%+) and some* Phys Power, preferably to at least -9%.
>Additional Magic
I run bonk wizard and take Arcane Shield which is why I run Additional Magic rather than true to help with the 50% scaling.
>8 Magic Staff + Additional 16 - 50% scale + 20 shield = 32 True Defense shield
Plus the 100% scaling on the blast which is 8+16+5 Damage blast, 29 free damage within range.

I feel my wizard HP is subpar if I'm not at least 130~ and I must* have Max HP on my staff so I expect at least 135 to consider myself in a good range of HP.
I search Marketplace for Vigor-based gear and filter for HP then search for whatever has Power/HP as additional rolls. bis to me for example would be Epic padded legs with +5-6HP, +3 Power and some other roll like strength or phys power since wiz physical (base white melee damage) is so low.

A decent build for me will headshot bonk +140-150 Damage with ignite, I haven't tested what it is now with the increased headshot multiplier. Move speed doesn't matter much to me lately but if you can get at least 290 you should be fine if your hp is already high enough.

Was it really necessary to buff warlock and then completely gut Bard? I get nerfing accelerando, but the Lament and Rapier Mastery was what made them viable in solos. Why even touch those?

I think leveling strat right now is HR ice caverns. Dont even think about pvp if your goal is EXP and that means mob killing. Also feel free to go to crypts as well. If mobs are just too much for you go normal. You want to bring the crystal sword and spells along with meditate. Use magic missle for your main mob killing. Ice bolt and invis are also very important. Go around killing every fuckin mob you see maybe grab a few chests. If you go crypt make sure you go hell and kill the mini bosses there as well. If players show up either book it as fast as you can, accept your death, or something be chad enough to beat partys of geared players as naked wizard. And again dont forget goal is XP and mob killing making money and maybe winning a pvp fight is a happy accident not the goal. This will take awhile no matter what cause they made the grind longer.

>>
>>1239780
Depends on the lock playstyle but they largely win in wars of attrition, however they have no burst. People who actually know the game just walk away from BoC. Torture mastery phantomize builds are effective for wearing down opponents but they can't blast someone to death in three seconds from a safe distance like a wizard can.
Did lock need to be buffed this hotfix? Absolutely not but they're really not that crazy if you know the counterplay. I literally spent like two or three minutes camping a pillar against a curse spamming lock in HR caves yesterday and waited until he got impatient and then rushed him down at the perfect opportunity. Couple days earlier I was fighting a BIS'd out PDR demon lock and would just run away and camp him the second he went demon mode until I could wear him down and finish him off. You have to play cringe to beat cringe. Warlock is good but they're not great, that title goes to wizard no contest.

really can't bring myself to keep playing the game as they make it worse every patch. deliberately designing the game to be unfair with high variance and massive gear weight does not make the game more "gritty and immersive". it makes the game extremely unrewarding to play well and saps the romance out of the game. the very premise that after a year of working to make the 3d audio better, they would ship a patch that removes footstep audio from all crouching players, just beggars belief. gear should be weak and allowed in normals again. sound queues and the kill log are the only two reliable ways that players ever had to make smart decisions regarding their match-by-match conduct. the rock-paper-scissors matchups of the classes can only produce a worthwhile game when players can pick their fights. these idiots want you to have 0 chance to know there is a barb in BiS crouching around the corner until he starts hitting you.

Solo HR is the worst it's been in months, I wouldn't be too hard on yourself. You'd have to be a masochist to bring in actual gear to HR when someone can just creep up behind you or stand around a corner and win the fight before it's even started. At least in normals you don't risk losing anything and extracting is all but guaranteed if you're not a noob.

i mean >>1241815 is right but ranger is difficult. most classes can easily break the gap between you and you need a gap to survive. you basically just need to constantly run away from enemies with your fists out and keep space between you while taking shots. jump when you switch weps or put weps away to maintain speed. jump when you're loading an arrow to maintain speed. consider playing with a rapier/hand crossbow as a secondary or a windlass as a crossbow. if you can open up a fight with a crossbow HS it can give you an advantage

in hotfix 15 they made gear weak by removing +allstats and toning down +wepdmg while also buffing drop rates, you could open a couple chests in gobbo and have a full kit good enough to compete at 90% effectiveness against nearly anybody out there. they promptly bungled the patch so badly that the servers wouldn't properly sync with each other and everybody's gear was getting rolled back every game, leading to tons of duping- you could trade somebody your viola, go suicide it by leaving the lobby before a match even starts, and then trade the same person a second one, etc. in less than a month they had wiped everybody's inventory with "hotfix #18" which they did under the guise of "wanting to test a large rebalance to our random modifier system" claiming that the problem was that it "added too much rng" despite the fact that the #15 had the lowest variance of any patch up until that point because anybody who had opened a couple chests had the same mix of mediocre blues and greens, and people bringing their duped godgear were getting taken down by 2 or 3 teaming players who had nothing to lose. since then we have only seen more and more gear emphasis until recently when people have universally started saying that if you don't have godgear in hr that you're playing at a disadvantage. there is obviously a deep desire from the devs for gear to be strong and, if possible, time-consuming to get. welcome to the "milking chinese whales without p2w" metagame where the devs get chang killed by a silent barb so that he is sent back to the goldbuyer website where he'll incentivize more botting and get himself banned (but not before he runs around 4 lobbies 1shotting everybody else)
>>
>>1243163
>le secrit conspiracy
have you ever considered that the devs are just bad (still better than you or anyone in this gen) at game design?
>>
>>1243240
i have considered and dismissed that possibility because every single other variable of design like whether class matchups should be rps-based or aim to be balanced, whether classes are balanced around solos or trios, whether having high armor should mean that you have low mdef or the opposite, whether the goal of balancing is for classes to have equal winrates, kill rates, or pick rates, whether there should be more portals than players, less portals than players, or the same amount, all of these factors fluctuate seemingly randomly.
the fact is that there is only one feature of their design philosophy with a perceptible and understandable trend and it is that they want fights to be decided by gear differences. patches where gear is unimpactful or quick to get are quickly rolled back and replaced with patches where gear is strong. if this is true, what feedback mechanism is reinforcing this behavior? likely sales, which increase as they ban chink cheaters in the hundreds each patch

>>1244279
If you have to ask probably not? It's changed quite a bit since the playtests (e.g., players have become more competitive and optimized, balance has improved significantly, having game knowledge is critical to surviving, etc.). You need to put a lot of time into the game for it to be a rewarding experience.
>>1243545
>grind 10k gold
>buy bis kit
That's your problem. In solos it's better to have several cheap, mid-tier kits than one BIS kit that you lose to something outside of your control. I typically don't spend more than 4000g on a single kit and avoid wearing any gear that's worth more than 1000g on its own. You want to be effective but not to the point that dying once will bankrupt and demoralize you.

>>
>>1244659
There's always going to be things to complain about with balance (right now I think the hot topic this season is +2 All being such a dominant roll) but every class has the ability to kill every other class in the game if played correctly. Build diversity is also the best it's ever been and will be even more interesting when multiclassing is introduced in the near future.
>But I'm just a retard and am just bad.
Self-awareness is the most important thing you can have in this game, you may not succeed every raid but having strong mental fortitude will put you miles ahead of other players that auto-tilt when they lose to better gear, a tough class matchup, or just bad luck.

- Developers make a hard-line statement that no-sound movement is staying in, to expose ESP cheaters
- Someone who is full naked will make no sound
- Someone who is full cloth will make some sound, unless they're a rogue in which case they're silent
- Community gets told to fuck off
- Mixing armor types or wearing plate is immediately the loudest possible thing
- Movement type causes some armor types to amplify or dampen the volume level from movement
- Streamers get told to kill themselves if they don't like it
- Special clothing that's made from metal fabric makes more noise
- Modifier stat can be found that will reduce noise
- Rogue-only equipment gets a special anti-sound modifier that quiets more than just movements
- Revert all changes one week then put them back the next because the developers are ultimately pussies who can't make up their fucking minds on how the game should work, even when it's working correctly.

Really only cleric or warlock for wiz, the high base knowledge lets a lot of builds work. I'd say bard maybe but as soon as you finish buffing the others would wear off.

Rogue might be a fun one for memes, like turn a corner, go invis and zap them from behind or ranger just for back step.

This is the #1 problem plaguing games today. You have to listen to an extent, some changes they suggest will be important. But if you could just listen to player feedback and make a good game, 99% of games would be amazing. You can't design based on player feedback.
>>
>>1262043
>game companies should ignore their playerbase, i.e., the people playing their game
>>
>>1261881
Your character's power level (not counting gear) used to be 85% at 0 hours, 92% at 2 hours, 97% at 5 hours and 100% at 10 hours (hours played representing level 1, 5, 10, and 15, no I don't care that you can grind them faster or new players take longer, if you reply saying that you're retarded). You got your best abilities immediately, and the best perk to start with every new perk being worse than the last. With multiclassing you need to grind level 30 multiple times and get lucky to reach 100% character power level. Completely ass change from a character growth perspective even without taking balance and class readability (not tf2 tier but damn good and important to the game) into account.

>fuck multiclassing no one wanted this bullshit
Multiclassing is good and fun for the game but it needs more fine-tuning and balancing to prevent huge power gaps between casuals and veterans. Clearly a skill tree is not in the cards for Ironmace right now if they're trying to implement this system specifically. Even if they did a skill tree it would probably be lackluster where it's just a increase in numbers depending on how you specialize (e.g., tier 1 of Slayer gives three weapon damage, tier 2 gives four damage, tier 3 gives five damage, etc.). Multiclassing is a good compromise to reward playing multiple characters and make leveling something useful and consistently rewarding.

RNG and the limited number of times you can play the slot machine is a huge deterrent to veterans. I was watching uToast (2000+ hours) yesterday and he said he didn't want to reroll his multiclassing or else his main character might be unplayable for a few days if he got the wrong stuff so clearly it's working as intended. Definitely not a perfect system by any means but should be recognized as a major step forward for the game.

Hopefully it won't be in the game. The only way it could work is if they severely limited and/or nerfed the perks, probably remove all skills too. Or just remove the class system and make everyone 15 all stats.

Retard
>>
>>1264840
Im more on the positive side for multiclassing but I hope it gets a ton of changes. For a start its showing how some classes like cleric are honestly just so bad that with multiclassing playing as them is kind of a joke but stealing their shit is insane. Some skills and perks are just to good im pretty sure ive seen sprint on every class at this point. Doubt they will nerf sprint though since its a fighter class and they are god chosen people. I think some sort of limit or general nerf on multiclassed skills/perks/spells is what they need to do. Like you can only take 1-2 multiclass things rest has to be main class or multiclassed abilities are just nerfed when on a different class. Also they REALLY need to think hard about how much they want the grind to be. I hated grinding cleric though I did it before they made it easier to level. Ultimately I dont know to an extent ide like to see them try an even crazier system where you just roll your own class with the choice of all equipment skills and stats. Let people just go full retard why not.

I hope it won't stay in no matter what they do to it. Such a lazy direction to take the game when they already couldn't balance the classes. it can just be a wacky joke from season 2...

So do you guys notice people outrunning you with less speed? I've gotten very frustrated this wipe and quit playing because of it but didn't bother trying to record proof or anything.

Before the ranked mode update the tavern was brimming with people to party with. It usually took 3 mins to find a new team and get in a game but now the tavern has 10 people on average and they are all silent baddies. I don't understand how that update changed things so much and how the population didn't change alongside the death of the gathering hall.
>>
>>1271871
I'm not even good but my friends suck dick at this game too. Been playing for almost 3 months and they haven't gotten much better since when we started.

It's also impossible to convince anyone to play this game, and even if they were playing this game, it's not like I'd know because I don't see them playing it on my Steam friend's list.

I kinda recoil at the thought of joining the D&D LFG Discord party's, maybe I should.

Can't wait for multiclassing to get axed. Game turned into shit
>>
The game did turn to shit with multiclassing, GBMM, and creep.
Stupid decisions to add these things.
All the people saying “you can’t adapt” are fucking stupid. As if people saying they don’t like multiclassing means they are losing. Mutliclassing made the game a fuck load easier and it’s not fun for every fight to be easy as fuck when you use skills from other classes that were never designed to be used by another class with opposite stat balance.
Multiclassing killed class identity, the people having fun with it didn’t like the game before l because they couldn’t figure out how to survive through good positioning and strategy.
Most people who enjoy multiclass really just enjoy weapon mastery on their class, or they enjoy abusing stupid meta shit like magic thorns reflect build or ambush sprint barb.
I wish the game devs would take a few to steps back and realize the game experience has drastically shifted, so now the game is an arcade fantasy combat battle royale, Instead of a hardcore class based dungeon looter extraction game.
RIP a good game, out of touch devs killing their product

It's really just a system to give content creators endless videos such as:

The UNKILLABLE Warlock spec!
Get this multiclass perk to win!
I literally can't die with these perks!
New DEATHKNIGHT fighter multiclass
BARD WIZZARD IS POG

If you look at IMs worst decision and apply this reasoning, it makes a lot of sense. Multiclass sounds good enough to get newcomers to buy the game before they realize not only is it half-baked, but also a waste of time to farm up.

I will only play for the season rewards, if they're anything interesting then quit again.

What's a good Wizard Multiclass? Nothing seems to click for me yet. I've heard of Cactus Wizard with Smite, but I've had less success than just regular bonk wizard. Maybe my approach is wrong?

On one hand I'm glad things went the way they did because it allowed me to finally quit after playing ~2K hours.

>demigod cape reward
They never should've extended the grind and they should've made it look cooler. I have half a mind to redesign it myself with concept art.
>current season rewards
I don't know how they'll ever sell it as worth grinding for, last seasons was a total let down.
>multiclassing
I never cared for it, only leveled a rogue and wizard but it wasn't enough to keep me interested.
>arena
Had this released two months ago this might've saved my interest
>emotes
the first season rewards should've given us a rare emote too

I think if they don't get a Steam release by end of year this game will remain at this player count and it'll only be the autists on the merry-go-round of repetitive unexciting "dungeon-diving".
>module/mob randomization
this could be a nice band-aid that could potentially make it a little more interesting so that every* game would be different.

The game needs a major overhaul and years of development and then a push back to Steam to gain relevancy again. Of they have a 30% finished class ready after 9 months of dev time combined with store assets it feels like they have 3 employees

Kinda sad that given they admited its being removed they didnt go full fuck it and made it so everyone just instantly gets every class max tokens for max fuckery.
>>
>>1278680
They somehow need the steam release first, the boost in sales would give them the funds to hire more people. But they also have a complex of being release-ready and know if they were to go on steam prematurely it could hurt them.

I don't think I'm ever going to play again, I might check to see when they release season rewards. I already left the official server
>>
>>1278916
Yeah they are masters at missing opportunities like that. Part of why the games potential is squandered, they can't implement quick and dirty fun things to test despite being in EA AND having a test server.

There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.

Lobby size is too small across the board. The devs hyper focus on the enjoyment of streamers has forced them to ensure third party intervention is a thing of the past so each lobby is just waiting your turn for the most decked out solo/duo/trio to come in and esports meta all over you. This is why the game is dying and IM only makes it worse each patch.
>>
>>1296188
There's 4K total online, this game has been bleeding players.

I don't know if they are pandering to streamers but its so retarded how people seem to hold them in higher regard simply for recording themselves playing the game.
>>
>>1296491
If you look at the majority of their changes and think about why it needed to be changed, the biggest reason is usually streamers feelings getting hurt. The worst for the game were the changes to the pre-game lobby. They had to remove player names and VoIP in order to protect streamers from sniping. So they make a change that punished 99.999% of their population and it doesn't even guarantee the streamers won't be figured out. It can't be overstated how devs killing social interaction make a population plummet

Early Access Hotfix #47
@everyone, We will be doing the hotfix #47 update starting at May 22, 2024 4:45 PM.
When the patch starts, you will not be able to log in to the game and players in-game will not be able to enter the matchmaking pool during this time.
Players in a match or in-game will have 40 minutes to complete the match and exit safely.
The server will return to full service 2 hours after the patch starts.

During maintenance, all services, including the website, may be temporarily suspended to update various servers.

Changes:
Fixed several issues that could cause client crashes.
Fixed an issue where the Stiletto Dagger could sometimes not deal damage.
Fixed an issue where melee attacks would sometimes not deal damage to targets hit at the last moment.
The FSR option has been temporarily disabled for testing purposes.
Attribute ratio bonus is displayed in the tooltip.
The training dummy has been reworked based on the character.
The inventory system has been completely refactored.
Items other than equipment will no longer have their Lootstate changed when looted from enemies.
Gearscore will now appear wherever it can be displayed.
In-game chat has been added.
A whisper feature has been added to chat.
Leaderboards now display end times and rewards.
Dungeon recovery service has been added to Goblin Merchant.
Now you can expand your stash further and it's a little cheaper.
The final weekly quest has been added.
>>
Developer Comments:
We apologize for the lack of updates over the last week. This season was challenging, and we are currently working on improving our internal processes to ensure that the next season is done right. For this hotfix, we want to round out the current season on a strong note with some important quality of life and critical changes that we believe will reward current players and lay the groundwork for the future.

For the remaining duration of this season, we’d still like to offer proper goals to work towards. This hotfix adds the rewards for the leaderboards along with some account-bound cosmetic rewards for the quests. This season’s leaderboard will be active until May 31st. Afterwards, we will have a 1 week pre-season period in preparation for the next season which will commence on June 7.

This hotfix also brings a few critical features we want to get tested before the start of the next season. We have completely overhauled the inventory system to be more robust for future upgrades. Due to the scale of this refactoring, we foresee inventory bugs which we want to stomp out in time for the next season. We have also implemented in-game chat and the Dungeon Recovery system to make it a little easier to communicate and make dying in the game less punishing.

We understand that it was tough this season, but as we reflect on all that we’ve learned from the experience, and look forwards to everything in store, we have very high hopes for the future. We hope to share more information regarding the upcoming season in a couple weeks. We thank you for your patience and understanding. See you in the dungeons!

These rewards aren't worth it. If you were to be uninterrupted and allowed access to full hoard pulls every game consecutively, it would take about ~44 hours. Now factor in the amounts of time/ap lost dying and regearing -- not worth for a potion skin.

everything you need is in the middle 6 modules. assuming uninterrupted, kill every giant and wendigo, skelly champ and hit every lionshead/gold chest there and obviously the loot pile.

This is enough AP to gain past demigod entrance fee.

>red dots

I do not touch these modules, only move through them. There's only so much time to go through what's required for +AP.

There's a bunch of crates here and have high chances of giving decent loot or blue treasure.

In their defense they've mentioned time and time again the inventory is made of spaghetti code.

They need to make some money and hire a competent dev who can straighten these things out for them.
