After many tests, much thoughts and in order to make sure that we provide an optimal content, we decided to take an additional week of development on the Haven World update. They will therefore be deployed on June 25. We use this opportunity to reveal new information about the feature.
Our forums and internal discussions, as well as the internal playtest, raised concerns
on some of the main aspects of the Haven Worlds (accessibility, tollbooths, interface, feedback…).
Since our intention is to offer quality
content that matches your expectations, we decided to take one more week
to improve a few gameplay details.
Despite what was formerly announced, we will not implement Tollbooths
in the Haven Worlds. We noted that imposing a fixed toll value wasn’t adapted to the various economies of each server.
We decided to adopt a more malleable and craft oriented system: Doors that can be crafted by Handymen
, allowing you to close the access to precise sections of your Haven Worlds.
We’re trying to get this ready for June 25
. It might of course evolve in the future with further rights, like doors only allowing passage to members of a guilds alliance.
Many of you shared your concerns about seeing your Haven World used and reaped by external players. We will implement a building allowing your guild to receive 5 to 10% of the Kamas and drops earned
on the monsters killed in your Haven World. These items will be stored in a chest found in this building, while the Kamas will be directly sent to your guild bank. The goal is to reward Haven Worlds open to external players
Prims (July update)
Again based on a common concern we saw, we will offer the ability to lock the GvG feature
. By default, Haven Worlds will not have a Prims. However, if the guild attacks another Prims, or builds a GvG building, its Prims will then appear and become attackable
We will keep the ascending system. We looked into other options but they required too much development time. The auctions will begin on Wednesday, June 26, at 7 PM Server Time
and will last for a week. We first wanted to begin them on Friday, but this would have limited our ability to react, should anything go wrong.
15 Haven World will begin their auction each week
. Once the 60 initial ones are sold, we would like to implement 8 new ones with each update
(2 auctions per week).
Guilds will first have to reach level 3
to participate: it will take them 6h30 (waiting time for the purchase of all these levels). Note also that a guild with a level 20 in Crafting will receive 9000 Guild points, and 6000 for a level 20 in Combat
For the most curious ones, we wanted to share something more concrete: the price and construction time of all buildings as well as the guild bonuses. The complete documents can be downloaded here
This should allow you to start planning your Haven World and your guild!
Thank you all for your support and see you on June 25!
