Respec to Kill

Discover the changes that will be implemented with the next update, deployed on January 29th.
 


On this last day of Kwismas, we unveil the list of new features and content that will be implemented on January 29th.

The second part, listing further changes and bug fixing will be published in the next days.

Have a nice read!
 

Level cap reaches 110

Finally! Starting with next update, you will be able to reach level 110!
 
Progression will work exactly the same way as for other levels, which means that you’ll get to improve your character a bit more!
 
Spells will still have a level cap of 100, and you will get 5 abilities points and 5 specialty points per level.
 

New Respec system

Here’s something that seems to have made you happy last week: the implementation of a proper respec feature! You asked for it, and here it is!

In the menu, 3 new ways to receive a respec: automatic upon reaching level 30, a special ingame quest repeatable every month, and finally a Boutique item. Enough to satisfy all of you!

Discover or rediscover the details in our Devblog!
 

Storage improvement & tradable Boutique items

In order to help with storage issues, we decided to increase the space available in the Haven-Bag chest!

In this update, more slots will be automatically granted to your ikiakits:
  • Basic: 14 (instead of 5),
  • Small: 14 (instead of 5),
  • Adventurer: 21 (instead of 5),
  • Kit: 21 (instead of 10),
  • Collector: 21 (instead of 10),
  • Golden: 28 (instead of 15),
  • Emerald: 28 (instead of 15).

All in all, the maximum capacity of your Haven-Bag chest will increase from 65 to 147 slots!

Also, to further help with storage, you decided to make all Boutique items tradable. This should help you share your Boutique items between all your characters without fear of wrongly allocating them. Of course you’re also free to offer them or sell them on the Market!

Note that items received with Tofukaze will also become tradable.
 

3 new dungeons and revamp of the Machines

All Nations: Dirty Trouffe Estate (level 65)
You were waiting for its return, and here it is! Furrier than ever… The Drheller dungeon! It hasn’t move, and you will still access it from Kara in Bonta, by crossing the house of the Stroud. Rascal also hasn’t move: he’ll be waiting for you, upset by your last intrusions… But he surely didn’t expect such motivation from his opponents to rediscover the hidden treasures of the Stroud! Something new however: You’ll also be able to reach this dungeon from Amakna, Brakmar and Sufokia with underground tunnels!
 

Bonta: Whirly Cave (level 55)
The Whirly Cave is an old abandoned tunnel located in Kara. Whirligigs took it over because they liked the noise made by the laughter resonating from above. Miners always say that Whirligigs store a lot of items they just found lying around… And that’s just what attracts warriors and adventurers! But to get the loot, you’ll first have to face many dangers…
 

Sadida Kingdom: Arachnoshima Dungeon (level 80)
Arachnophobics, move along! Frightening Arachnees hide in the Sadida Kingdom… Albinos, spectral, phosphorescent… They obviously experienced something unusual! Will you dare step in their nest to try and find out what happened to them? Watch out however, it could itch… Or mutate… Or both!
 

Toward a machine revamp
The team is currently working on a new machine system. That’s why all new dungeons (starting with the 3 mentioned above) will no longer have tokens and machines dedicated.
 
Since everything that is offered in the machines is just an alternative to the loots, this change will not prevent you from getting the items and equipment offered by the dungeons.
 
Machines and tokens currently ingame will stay available, and you will be able to use it as usual. There will simply not be any addition until we complete the revamp. Concerning the bosses and achievements linked to the new dungeons, they will give you Bronze tokens, and no longer dungeon tokens. With the new machine system, Bronze tokens will become the “new” currency used to acquire equipment. We will explain everything about this new system in the next weeks.
 
We also used this opportunity to review the aspect of gambling joints, on the trade bridges!
 

Ogrest Chaos retreating!

The current feature of Ogrest Chaos isn’t satisfying for either the community or the team. Therefore we decided to simply “remove” it from the game, for now.
 
The objective of the Game Designers will be to offer you a complete revamp in due time, enabling us to bring them back, with real incentive for the players!
 

Changes to the White Crow set

Some days ago, we told you about these changes in a Deblog and on the forums: The White Crow set will be rebalanced.

Find all the details about these changes on this article.
 

New Gazette

A new fresh gazette will celebrate the arrival of this new content!

  • [New]Respec instance: The new respect feature will be implemented in game thanks to the Respec instance.

Finally HP fix for duels. Maybe now i can level up Still Life on sadida with no harm to give up duel fights (wich now makes sadida have 1 hp after fight).... though knowing there will be revamp for sadida ... Still life might get changed completly...
Anyway it's good because we will be finaly able to finish duel and start next duel right away without need to wait for HP to recover. Really good update.

Bernardo dia Reya: Once in the air, he will correctly be immune to damage from the Sadida Voodoll.

What? That was not bug. It's linked with voodool so no matter where it will go, it should get hurt when voodoll is hit. Even if it fly - it's still linked to voodoll. That's how voodoo doll works. It should not be immune to dmg. It shouldbe only immune to dmg that canno target it when it's in the air (to all normal ways of dealing dmg but not to voodoll redirection). It's not like Bernardo becomes transcendant, right?

Nice ones:
*A character leveling up during a fight will have his full life when ending the fight.
*Ikiakits will contain more slots
*Boutique & Tofukaze all Boutique items will be tradable. - Will emotes be tradeable too ?
*Emotes of secret passageswill now be directly learned
*Krosmunster Pet tradeable

Bad ones:
*Treasure hunter for enu - fights will be longer now (to stack PP), but I'm ok with it
*Duels - no more healing by eni But bakers will make money, so it is ok

And I really want to get a comment from devs about that one:
Magmog: Will no longer receive damage from Prespic Hair.

Prespic Hair is a spell which reflects max 20% HP lost and causes dmg to attacker. It is the way this have to work. So why you nerf that spell in fight against magmog? As I see, everytime someone kills magmog with some strategy, u are doing "quick fix" to make this strategy useless... I'm ok when winner players use bugs - it is importand to fix them. But prespic hair spell is not a bug !
Long time ago, when UB were added, Devs said that they will nerf bosses if they are too hard to kill. I see, you only nerf players and make magmog much harder to kill

Magmog is a lvl 690 boss, divide 690 by 6 and you get 115, so you should need a lvl party of 6 lvl 115 players to kill him.

I guess it's the time to increase Dial charges~

Good patch, very much needed Eniripsa nerf.

Nice, can't wait for more

HP same before and after fight? Does it mean no healing fights? Are they out of their minds? Who will want to play e.g. sacier then? Sometimes I think they want us all play CRA's.

I was secretly hoping that the second part will be class rebalance but well, I'm happy with the Coney fix, it was so annoying

I am rather expecting class revamp to come in march - 1 year after release (and i have birthday in march ^^). But the truth is it could come even at december ^^ It was only said it's planned for this year.

@Magmog: Prespic hair was obviously an exploit and needed a fix. The question is rather wether Magmog is too hard for normal strategies or not.

The thing is the devs watch the french and probably american community more than ours and there several groups are killing magmog reliably every week without dying.

The problem is the "correct" strategies to all the UB fights are way, way too narrow to make it fun. I should not have to rely on bringin a sacrier to Moo, I should not have to rely to bring at least 3 enis to Magmog. There should be alternatives. They should not be easy to find, but they should be there. Sadly they really aren't.

There are some alternatives, except for magmog i guess.
I can do moo without sac or sadi any day people just have to be creative

Without Sadi, ok that is easy. We never bring a sadi to moo.

And without sac then you use a panda, right? I doubt moo can be done reliably without some kind of keep away play.

I am mostly about how some classes become entirely useless in UB fights. I would never bring an Iop to moo for example or a water eca anywhere.

My Moowolf group normally consists of two Iops.. and likewise my Exca group employes the same two Iops. Different people, slightly different tactics.

That being said my Osa is often left in the sidelines.. would have been interesting finally using him for Magmog!

I would honestly be interested to watch a moowolf fight with 2 Iops.

I would have never dreamt of takin an Iop there unless I centre my entire teams strategy around the Iop and that seemed rather pointless to me.

You should make a video next time


For Exca Iops are useful, I see that.

I team up with Sadist for Moo: 2 iops, 1 eni, 1 sac, 1 sadi and another random damage dealer (doesnt matter what class). I did Moo with my Iop when it first came out Moo is probably the only UB fight which you can use all the classes with a variety of tactics (not just particular classes with one fool-proof tactic) so I'm surprised you are shocked Shaleigh as the fight doesn't centre round the Iops at all when they are there Also, even without the sadi, it can be done with 2 iops But as you can see, I wish all the current UBs are like that where there are more than one tactic for different classes in group and still doable
Why is BC so luck based? :/ I thought this was a strategic game :'( And I can't see my Iop being able to go there at all atm T_T But maybe that's how it's meant to be - so that specific classes can go to different UBs, can win and therefore sell the gears to other classes/players who can't do *that* particular UB atm (but can do other UBs that the others can not). That way, it's kind of fair I think but I don't know if it's meant to be like that haha! Just fight and have fun! Can't wait for the update woohooooo!!
