Release Notes – Halloween

UpdateTags: , , ,

Spooky Realmers,

Halloween is one of our favorite seasons of the year and we wanted to give you something special. While the development team has been dedicating their time to fixing bugs and making the game more secure for you, the LiveOps team worked hard to bring you the new Bazaar and some exciting Campaign, Events, Quests and spooky ST reskins! 

The Grand Bazaar

Not only dungeons get reconstructed. We are very pleased to announce that the old Cloth Bazaar was completely remodeled and expanded to fit its new grandeur, it’s now called the Grand Bazaar! We want to encourage you to use this space for trading or simply hang out. Now you will find sections for pets (with food, eggs, and pet skins); blacksmith (ores, nilshards, and blueprints); cosmetics (character skins, dyes, and cloths); rings, and one section for each class. We know that some of you like to meet in the Bazaar with your friends to open your favorite dungeons, so we made 4 thematic rooms that were designed just for this purpose. Give it a try!

Now you will have access to an expanded variety of individual skins. For now, you can find 51 character skins that will be repeated in 3 places: in the Nexus, in the Bazaar, in the Cosmetics area and in each of the classes’ areas. That’s because this new skin distribution is still in an experimental phase, so it will probably change over time. Check them out and get your Halloween costume for this year!

Blueprints are now more available

Blueprints from Basic to Paramount will be available at the Grand Bazaar and some previously unreleased or limited-time Exalted Blueprints will be available in quests from now on in the following way:

You can collect tokens – “Schematics” and “Ancient Schematics”, scraps of the forgotten knowledge to craft the most powerful artifacts – and exchange them in Tinkerer for the desired Blueprint. 

Schematics, which you can exchange 2 stacks of 50 of for an S tier Blueprint of choice, will drop from the Killer Bee Queen, the Beekeeper, Crystal Worm Mother, Crystal Entity, Malus, the Marble Colossus, the Bridge Sentinel, and the Twilight Archmage. Ancient Schematics, to be exchanged for SS tier Blueprints, will drop from the Void Entity, the Forgotten King, and Oryx 3. 

Periodically, the quests will be updated with subsequent Blueprints. The first rotation will start with this release and last the duration of the Halloween event – as an initial test run. We will start with the following quests:

NameRequirementsBlueprint of choice
Ancient CraftsmanshipAncient Schematic x100Bracer of the Guardian
The Forgotten Crown
Sword of the Colossus
Marble Seal
Forgotten CraftsmanshipSchematic x100Crystal Shield
Refraction Cloak
Crystallised Fang’s Venom
The Twilight Gemstone

This system is experimental. We would love to hear your feedback and make changes as we decide whether and how to continue it post-Halloween.

Blood and Spirit – the campaign

This year, Lord Ruthven and Septavius the Ghost God have emerged as contenders for the title of Halloween King. Their rivalry is friendly, but it does have an edge. And their shiny new pet monsters, a Lycan and a Banshee, have found their own rivals, out on a fanatic quest to cleanse the Realm. A dark history weaves between the Banshee and the Archexorcist… From whence came the cursed artifacts that started it all?

In the campaign, you will find tokens (Monster Slayer’s and Monster Lieutenant’s Weapon, Ability, Armor and Ring) that you can exchange for pieces of the “Bad Guys” ST sets, and pieces of the “Good Guys” ST sets (are they really that good though?). Take on both roles! You will also be able to grab a pretty unique Samurai skin (which goes Boo!) and a Spectral Bat companion straight from the caverns deep under the Realm. The end of the campaign is roguish, with a Bloody Surprise Blueprint and a haunting reskin of the cloak itself.

Halloween ST Reskins

Either through the Campaign or from the Shop, you can be one of the first to get your hands on the 4 new Halloween exclusive STs reskins we have this year:

  • Archexorcist Priest ST Set, a reskin of the Mad God’s Messenger ST Set
  • Cursed Cursebreaker Huntress ST Set, a reskin of the Horticultural Huntress ST Set
  • Ghostly Banshee Summoner ST Set, a reskin of the (duh) Scientific Summoner ST Set (which soon will not be the only option)
  • Lycan Warrior ST Set, a reskin of the Pirate King Warrior ST Set
