Whispering Island

The Adventure Whispering Island is here!

This new content should satisfy those of you who are already high level and have been waiting for new challenges.

Developed for characters level 95 and higher you will meet a new type of monsters, the Whisperers. These little creatures originating from Amakna were driven out of their land and had to cross the sea to find a new home. Only problem, it was already populated with Cracklers! But whisperers are pugnacious unstoppable creatures: they just decided to settle on the Cracklers. That’s right, ON the Cracklers

If you want to know more about the history of the Whisperers, you can read this devblog, dedicated to them.

Before you set to discover this new area, here are some numbers:
  • 4 exclusive dungeons to explore, the Whisper Crisper, the Crackapult Range, The Rock and the Hushquarters,
  • 7 new monsters to beat, such as the Infantry and Crossbow Whisperers, or the Whispered Crackrock.
  • 12 quests to discover,
  • 8 achievements to complete, like “Murmurasa” that will ask you to find Stone of Murmurs on the island,
  • 4 new special emotes relating to the Whisperers,
  • 55 new items to collect, including the new Fortified Set,
  • 3 titles to earn, such as “Hoarse Whisperer”,
  • And countless numbers of Whisperers to smash!

Word of advice: don’t judge them on their size!


 

Monsters families renewed!

Monsters groups in the Fertile Prairie of Amakna, the Cania Plains of Bonta, the Mourning Wood of Brakmar and the Terrana Dune of Sufokia will be changed!

You’ll find the same families but the groups will be slightly changed, for a better game experience.

Rebalancing of the Mobile Arenas experience

We listened to your feedback concerning the Mobile Arenas and the benefits they could bring.

This is why we decided to implement a global rebalancing in order to increase the experience gain with Mobile Arenas.

Prepare your Bronze Tokens!

Krosmaster Rooms and Haven-Worlds locations

Form October 2nd, the Krosmaster rooms will be open in all gambling joints of the nations!

Before the big day, you will be able to visit these rooms and accustom to the table, the chairs, and the decoration before the frenzy of the competition seizes you…

Also, you will also be able to discover the locations of the Haven-Worlds! These will start appearing and be available for you to see in game on the market bridges of the nations.

Bug Fixing and Improvements

Classes

Cra :
  • Storm Arrow: will no longer have its damage reduced in aoe, but will be limited 2/turn.

  • Double or Quits: will work correctly after a critical hit with Loaded Dice.

Pandawa
  • Karchamrak: to avoid AP loss with Karchamrak attempts on items or summons that cannot be carried (Scara eggs for example) it will only be possible to carry your barrel or a character.

Sadida
  • Vaporize: a Greedy summoned with Vaporize will be under the “Controlled” state.
Sram
  • Invisibility: the damage penalty inflicted by Invisibility is reduced by -10% per enemy as soon as the fight contains more than 1 enemy. This means that an invisible Sram fighting 3 enemies will no longer have a -50% penalty to his damage by -30%.
  • Torment: will inflict -4 HP (lvl 0) and -60 HP (lvl 100), +1% damage per level of Hemorrhage (instead of -5 and -70).

Foggernaut
  • Stasis spells: the damage curve has been reviewed for a better balance of the progression and the strength of this class. Here’s an example with Heart of Steam:
    • Before: lvl 5 = -5 HP, lvl 25 = -7 HP, lvl 50 = -26, lvl 75 = -76, lvl 100 = -174.
    • After: lvl 5 = -5 HP, lvl 25 = -15, lvl 50 = -47, lvl 75 = -100, lvl 100 = -175.

Reset don't come yet? Lucky I don't need one, but I'm a little sad for the most part of my friends. lol

Hope the big classes update come soon. And... The UB really need more enhances? Have just one group killed magmog without tricks? Meh.
MyFateBiz 02 October 2012 - 14:44

thespacialguruofwater 02 October 2012 - 14:35

KamOlaZ 02 October 2012 - 13:55
How long to true Osamodas passives rebalancing?
Who uses Phoenix Spirit anyway?
And please FIX THE DAMN FEATHER TORNADO SPELL!!! ABLE TO CAST IT ON CASTER IS A MUST!!!

Other than that, this update seems nice enough (lols at yet another nerf to Cras and yet another buff to the already overpowered Ultimate Bosses).

Oh, and my perfect Mine Hat is missing ...
Let's see if they are greedy enough ...
Ankama, can you please give it back so I can subs again?
It's a win-win situation ... you give back my perfect Mine Hat and I subs for 3 months again, what do you say?

Keep on destroying the cra class... thank you...
+1
Just because it was ONCE super over-powered, that doesn't mean you have to grind it into the ground... Especially when the international forum has NO influence on class changes....
joviceso3 02 October 2012 - 13:15
Keep on destroying the cra class... thank you...
keemsky 02 October 2012 - 13:01
lol no reset? really? this is just lame. time to hibernate. this game gives me stress rather than relaxing me after work. 2x SA per turn. at least give my air cra a reset.
Kuroyanko 02 October 2012 - 11:43
Mine helmet disappearances (mine is also gone) must be a bug, they would not just remove an item from the game like that. (and if they did, I want the kamas back for which I bought it from someone)

Which is why I've posted a post in the bug report section of this forum.

This might be better for all of you to do, if you find a bug, post it in the bug section instead of in the update post, this will keep the forum cleaner and make it easier for the devs to find the problems.
Ryuujikyon 02 October 2012 - 11:19
All my previous Almanax quests got deleted :/
Lindel 02 October 2012 - 11:16

(MissHeal @ 02 October 2012 11:10) *
I just logged and lost my Mine Hat. Did they remove it from the game?

Also, the Almanax quests section under the quest book doesn't show anything and the Almanax interface shows all quests as not done, just fyi.
+1

Miner hat disappeared, and this is not mentioned in the changelog.
