Reward System for Boss Fights
With this mechanism, all active members in a boss fight may be able to loot rewards.
Once the boss is dead, players will see a new kind of loot bag, the Reward Container. It will contain individual loot for every fighting team member according to his participation during the fight.
Furthermore, a Reward Chest will be added to the Adventurers' Guild. Players will have the option to either take the reward from the dead body or the Reward Chest. If one has already looted the dead body, his reward chest will be empty. If not, the reward will be stored in the chest for seven days.
The following bosses are affected by the new system:
- Zulazza the Corruptor
- Chizzoron the Distorter
- Raging Mage
- Mad Mage
- The Welter
- White Pale
- The Pale Count
For more information, see the FAQ in the Auditorium.
Artificial Intelligence for Bosses
All new bosses and eventually all existing bosses will have a new artificial intelligence (A.I.) that will make their behavior more dynamic and different from normal monsters, making them even more challenging. While all details have not been revealed the bosses' environment will be a factor in their behavior. The new bosses will be affected by the revised reward system.
The following bosses use improved AI:
World BoardThe World Board can be used to inform about currently active Mini World Changes in a server.
- Both clients received a new loading/login screen artwork.
- New graphics option: antialiasing. Antialiasing will smooth out rendered graphics. Previously antialiasing was applied with no option to disable it. Disabling it may have a minor performance boost but the recommended setting is enabled.
- In order to face the Mad Mage (Their Master's Voice World Change) and the Raging Mage (The Mage's Tower World Change), players now have to actively take part in the respective tasks. For the Mad Mage, cleaning 25 slime will be required, and for the Raging Mage, 50 Yielothaxes have to killed.
- Players can no longer prevent the teleport from the First Warzone from getting fully charged.
- NPC Towncryer now gives information about all Mini World Changes. Previously he would not mention about Fury Gates, Warpath, Spider Nest and Devovorga's Essence.
- Traded wares of Yasir and Telas were adjusted. It is not possible to sell items from Telas' item list to Yasir anymore, unless you did the Shadows of Yalahar Quest.
- Possibilities to block players in the Wrath of the Emperor Quest have been removed.
- An area of The Repenters Quest tasks was adjusted to avoid respawn blocking.
- Teleporters to the Grizzly Adams bosses of Killing in the Name of... Quest are now Protection Zone.
- You can now kill Blood Priests, Blood Hands and Shadow Pupils to complete Lugri's Task
