Development and Release History

Patch X.15.0.0 - The Balance of Magic

June 20

Hey people!

Is… is that? Yes, we’re finally getting rid of 27.7 and going full X mode! Let’s celebrate that with the gorgeous Summer Nexus from Beige, and a refreshing summer rain of balance changes!

As for the Art Contest, we’re still going through all your submissions. Just like you guys, we’re super stoked about it - more than 200 participants took the challenge! Hopefully we will be able to reach out to the winners in the coming week.

Important Announcement: We will soon be lowering the price of several older Skins and Pet Stones for all of you out there. That means we will also have to lower the FP of those skins in particular to avoid having issues where Skins start being more interesting than Pet Food in the long run. If you have any duplicate skin lying around that you are not using, please make sure to feed them soon to avoid losing FP!

Month of the Mad God Announcement: No, we didn’t forget MotMG - it will take place in August this year! Why the delay though? Well, we’re preparing a lot of new stuff for MotMG - a lot of exciting stuff I might add! However, it’s going to take us some more time, and we don’t want to release a half-baked MotMG which would make everyone sad.

Note: If you can’t connect to the game, try using the website to see if the issue comes from the Client you’re using!

New!

  • The Summer Nexuses are now live! With creativity and hard work, Beige brings us the latest Nexus Technology™ with a time-based Nexus, which goes through a complete Day/Night cycle every 8 hours!
  • Mini Sphinx Pet Stone now drops from the Grand Sphinx
  • Mini Crystal Steed Pet Stone now drops from the Crystal Prisoner
  • Mystery Items are out! Using one will drop an random related item (Mystery Skins will drop Skins for instance). The quality of the item depends on the quality of the Unlocker (Gold / Silver / Bronze).

Fixes

  • Using abilities while stunned functions properly and no longer results in disconnects (Shields, Quivers and Shuriken)
  • Fixed ocean vent and wounded Thessal not appearing when they should (for real this time)
  • Snake Pit Guard is no longer invisible on the mini map and displays its HP bar correctly
  • Reduced another repetitive line from the Avatar
  • Cleaned up Oryx Taunt strings (double spaces, etc.)

Polish

  • Opening secret room now makes a sound like it was intended!
  • Brought back backgrounds - Sprite Worlds have stars again! (only when Hardware Acceleration is off)
  • Scepter of Geb renamed to Wand of Geb to avoid confusion
  • Equipment Tool Tips
    • Abilities now display their cooldown
    • Set pieces now display the full set bonuses (lightly grayed if not active)
    • Traps and Scepters: added new properties and improved stat comparisons
    • Improved comparisons for MP Costs

Balancing

Sorcerer

Max Attack: 60 -> 70
Base Attack: 10 -> 12

Scepters

Scepters have received quite an overhaul! The goal with these changes is more engaging and strategic game-play, on top of making the choice of equipment more interesting.

  • Wisdom scaling: past 50 Wisdom, Scepters will receive bonuses
    • Each point increases damage, the amount depends on the Scepter
    • Every 10 points will add an additional target (+3 for 80 WIS for example)
  • Damage distribution: damage decreases for each subsequent target
  • Narrower arc: lowered from 90°, now they actually have to be aimed to some extend
  • Overall: damage increased significantly
