Great Reckoning Update Notes

Post by Neus » Thu Jun 09, 2016 11:58 am

Since the other topic was getting cluttered I decided to make a new one for beta updates.

---
Skill Conversions:

Soldier (Protect)
Lantern Bearer (Phoenix)
Youkai Evoke skills, where appropriate. (FP scaling costs down, damage formula is now caster's 100% + (Youkai Level/25, *100)% Elemental ATK. At level 60 this is 340% of Elemental ATK.

Monster Conversions:

Jammer Race (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Omega)
Spatial Race (Terror, Corrupter, Ravager)

- Corrected Power calculations for gun attacks.
- Corrected Power calculations for weapon skills.
- Antiquated traits Lady Luck and Style Blending should be removed upon login.
- Arcane Potion's effect changed to 'Basic attacks deal magic damage and STR scaling turns into WIL scaling, but weapon power is reduced by 50%.'
- Material effects that could deal elemental damage on hit have been changed to give a bonus to elemental ATK.
- Adjusted layer for new examine and the new stat panel so they don't overlap horribly.
- The examine interface should now work properly with monsters and youkai.
- Guild name and icons don't show up in the examine interface if your guild is toggled off now.
- The game should now pick the most optimal casting tool you have equipped (if you have multiple equipped) when casting a spell.
- Rampaging enchantment adjusted to 25% of Weapon Power, to a maximum of 50% of Weapon Power.

Currently up, will be up until I decide I don't want to keep it up. My current to-do list is thus:

Code: Select all

* I need to add weight to hands, legs, and accessories and make them impact your battle weight. Should be very simple.
* I may want to add sound effects for the new interface.
* I need to add (unique) weapon scaling to monster weapons, and youkai weapons.
* I need to adjust enemy skills to the new stat system.
* I need to finish adjusting enemy stats to the new system.
* Respec fruit with some sort of anti-abuse function.
* Clicking a stat in the interface gives a description of what it does.
Since we're approaching the final steps of conversion, please be vigilant, test, and report bugs that occur. Furthermore, I am interested in how the above enemies perform; are they too strong, are they too weak, are they good how they are? Please post your thoughts in the discussion topic, as it will help me adjust the remaining monsters.

  • APT adjusted to give +1 to all other stats per 6 points.
  • Faith adjusted to give 1 Critical Evade per 1 point.
  • Stat points per level increased to 3.5
  • Introduced a gradual soft-cap falloff.
  • Lucky Amulet critical damage reduction decreased to 10%.
  • Added a profile music autoplay preference option.
  • Added a chat notification when you level up.
  • Space Ray now receives weapon scaling as intended.
The soft-cap falloff is rather complicated but in essence, it means stat points spent near the soft-cap are worth more, while they fall off harder and harder the higher you get into the stat.

Monster Conversions:

Ocean Races (Sand Shark, Electrojam, Fangs, Soldier Kraboid, Sand Kraboid, Delver)
Snakeman Race (Snakeman Knight, Snakeman Mage, Snakeman Sniper, Feathered Serpent)
Bandits (Bandit Bruiser, Bandit Archer, Bandit Gunman, Bandit Backstabber, Bandit Leader)
Guardians (Winged Guardian, Shadow Guardian)
Godchildren (Kinu 1, Kinu 2, Hugo, Seto, Ashe)
Random Arena Combatants*
* These are mostly generic stats. Most likely, after everything is done, I'll add more 'specialized' and specific NPC combatants with unique stat builds and such.
Note - These should be all of the monsters in the game. If you notice one that has no stats, please let me know.
Another Big Note - If an enemy is doing little damage with its skills, it could be a bug. If an enemy is doing a huge amount of damage with its skills, it could be a bug. If you notice any suspicious totals, I encourage you to ask if something is an error.

- GUI, SAN, and APT now show up in stat examinations.

Please confirm the version number before reporting issues.

There's one last thing I need to do before this is ready to go to live, which is a minor thing. Please check for oversights, imbalances, bugs, and all of that good stuff, because aside from adjusting for those, this is what we will be moving to live.

- Added looc command for local OOC. This means that OOC text should NOT be put into say or emote anymore, unless absolutely necessary to communicate with someone who has OOC off.

- Removed innate status infliction bonus from having Cursed/Doomed weapons equipped.
- Minimum status resistance is now 0%.
- Clarified the Hexer skill Payback's description and rank text to show it reduces Status Resist instead of giving Status Infliction.
- Converted Youkai to the new stat build system after realizing it would be difficult for some of them to utilize their skills otherwise.
- Affinity skills no longer mention growths.
- Expanding Ice can no longer hit a single target multiple times.
- EXPERIMENT: Adding skill cooldown for all skills. After using a non-basic skill (ie, Move, Attack) the skill will go on a 3 round cooldown before it can be used again.
- BUG: Page numbers were being updated for all people examining a profile when the page changed, instead of just the person changing the page.
- BUG: It was possible to click equipment outside of the appropriate tab when examining a profile.
- BUG: Youkai weapons didn't have critical damage.
- BUG: The previous fix for the Marching Band size limit wasn't working.
---

So, we're entering the last few days of testing. Everything seems to be stable, the bugs are starting to come in slower, and so on. While we're here, I wanted to test the skill cooldown system I've had kicking around in the background. The main reasons for this sort of thing existing is to make 'spamming one skill' or repeatedly doing the same thing every turn less oppressive and have windows of opportunity for counter strikes and so on. You are encouraged to leave feedback in the Beta Fu forums about it; do you like it, do you not like it, do you like it but think [x] needs tweaks, and so on. Depending on what people think, it may or may not ship along with this update on Sunday when the first part of the Great Reckoning hits live finally.
