    Dear heroes of Dracania,

    release_200_dro_facebook.jpg

    Happy Release 200!!

    With this version we introduce
    scaling dungeons to the world of Dracania

    Furthermore we added the
    long wished-for group rewards to the Leaderboards and in the same breath adjusted the rewards and score points for the solo rankings.


    New Leaderboards

    Group leaderboards
    The group leaderboards feature is enabling groups of 2-5 players to hunt for the high score together and here is how it works:
    As soon as the player enters a Parallel World dungeon in a group and
    cross the leaderboard run border (the blue effect in the beginning), the group run starts for all players.

    Comment from Game Design:
    To qualify for the earned points, you must stay together with your group or at least members of your group. This means that you will gather points together and you will not receive any points players may earn by killing monsters that are far away from your position.
    There are two scenarios that you will have to keep in mind:

    1. If you join a group run of another player, you will start on the same level of time points, but with no monster points.
    2. If you join a group run of another player out of a solo run, the solo run is cancelled and you will receive your monster kill points, but no time points. And same as for scenario 1, you will be put on the current level of time points.

    Adjusted score points and rewards
    The needed score points for the different leagues as well as the rewards are the same for solo and group leaderboards.

    Comment from Game Design:
    Changes to rewards

    With the current setup, we give out mainly Andermant and some additional items. With the new setup, we want provide more items that will help explore Drakensang directly, so it's more "at hand".
    With the applied changes we want to put more focus on the content of the Parallel Worlds and the possibility to maximize the experience by improving the very own gear.
    And for the future, we want to revisit the rewards of the leaderboard seasons in order to provide fresh items in a frequent manner. So stay tuned and search for changelogs as soon as a new season is on the horizon!

    Improvements
    As all of you know, once a season ends, players that were able to place themselves in a league, received several notifications: one per reward. With the next iteration of the leaderboards, all rewards that are given out at the end of the season, will be combined in a compact reward chest (except of the gold!). This will help having less notifications on the left side of the screen. Hooray!
    Scaling Dungeons

    The player can now explore all dungeons on these additional difficulties: painful, excruciating and fatal. The strength of all monsters will scale according to the chosen difficulty and the level of the player.
    All scaling dungeons (Painful +) will include:

    • Enchanted Manuscripts and Blessing Spheres
    • 90 % Map leader/ 10 % Greedy Goblin
      • After having defeated all monsters on a map the player can fight against a special monster
      • The Map leader appears with a 90% chance. It drops the usual loot of a map leader and a Key of Prowess (needed to enter the scaling boss rooms)
      • The Greedy Goblin can spawn instead with a chance of 10 %. It drops twice the loot a map leader drops and also one Key of Prowess.
        • The Greedy Goblin disappears when he was not defeated in time.
    • Fast teleport objects
    1.png
      • This object appears after the player has defeated either the Map leader or the Greedy Goblin.
      • Using it will open the entry window where the player can teleport back to the beginning of the current map (difficulties selectable again).
      • Monsters and other objects will be reset when the player uses the teleport.
    • Scaling versions of shabby chests
    • Scaling versions of all monsters and bosses (monster level is the same as player level + better loot)
    • Scaling boss dungeons: To enter a boss map on painful + the player has to invest Keys of Prowess (which drop from Map leaders and Greedy Goblins).
    2.png
    • Adjusted health bars:
      • We will use a color code to describe the monster rank. The monster title will move on top of the general health bar.
    Monster = white/grey
    Guardian = green
    Champion = blue
    Map leader = purple
    Miniboss/Boss/Worldboss = orange/yellow
    • The daily challenges that tell the player to defeat a certain amount of a certain monster rank will be also colored like the monster rank.


    Group coloring

    The group members are now colored on the minimap, in the group window and in the group information.
    The slots are ordered in
    descending order by class:

    1. Steam Mechanicus
    2. Ranger
    3. Dragonknight
    4. Spellweaver

    New party members added will change the slot order depending on their class.

    Slot colors are as follows:


    1. Blue
    2. Green
    3. Red
    4. Purple
    5. Yellow

    Examples:

    Example 1:
    1. Steam Mechanicus
    2. Ranger
    3. Dragonknight
    4. Spellweaver
    5. Spellweaver
    Example 2:
    1. Steam Mechanicus
    2. Steam Mechanicus
    3. Ranger
    4. Dragonknight
    5. Spellweaver
    Example 3:
    1. Ranger
    2. Dragonknight
    3. Spellweaver
    Bug fixes and Improvements

    Error messages
    Error messages that appear on the loading screen now contain additional information for the player to ensure a faster and easier way to solve the problem without the need of contacting the support.
    New Moon
    The quests "Revenge is Sweet (5/6)“ and "Off with her Head (5/6)“ have been reworked. This fixes the issue of players being stucked by not being able to complete the quests.
    Premium Trader
    Emilia is now offering the recipe for the Belt of Zeal.
    Parallel World
    All Blessing Spheres and Enchanted Manuscripts in the Ocean of Bones are now always giving buffs.
    The player can now obtain the items
    "Khalys' Dark Gaze“ and "Khalys' Dark Scheme“ from the Parallel World Ruins of the First Circle.
    Items
    Temporary items (e.g. Mounts) were usable after the limited period. This has been fixed now.

    Tooltips
    The tooltip of the debuff "Vulnerable“ is now displaying the correct reduction of armor and resistence.

    Quest Guidance
    The Quest Guidance for the Quest "A Mother’s Worry (1/3)“ has been improved.

    Known issues

    There is an issue
    with the values in the skill tooltips when equipping the Medusa Set. After equipping the boots some values will be displayed incorrectly in the tool tip. This is only a display issue, the skills work correctly.


    Go further and conquer, heroes of Dracania!
