Update – Mardi Gras + New STs

Development UpdateTags: , ,


Time for another update. Introducing first our new ST Sets. The Onmyoji Ninja and the Plague Doctor Priest find their way into Realm of the Mad God. You will also be able to join our next campaign Horror STory III and jump into the Event Dungeons during Mardi Gras! The Discord voted and decided which Skin everyone will be able to receive for free in the Shop.

At the end, you will find more information regarding changes to dungeon modifiers and new dungeon mods.

ST Sets

Like opposite sides of the same coin, the Plague Doctor and Onmyoji try to help those separated by the boundary between life and death.

Ninja Set: Onmyoji Ninja

The Onmyoji Ninja trades their Ninja Star for an Invocation scroll that, while held, summons extra shots for their weapon. They also utilize the new ability swap mechanic, to swap between 2 different shot patterns. Wearing the Armor and the Ring will provide unique buffs to this ability.

*The Token Name for the Shakujo & Cane of Caduceus in the Forge Interface are currently wrong and will be fixed in a future update.

Ability 1

Ability 2

Items in the set:

  • Weapon – Shakujo
  • Ability – Invocation Scroll
  • Armour – Divination Cloak
  • Ring – Omamori

Priest Set: Plague Doctor Priest

The Plague Doctor Priest forgoes the usual Healing Tome for their own preferred medical device…their leeches. The Plague Doctor Priest can summon up to 3 leeches to aid them in battle, siphoning the health of enemies, and exploding with a healing AOE burst. The leeches can be upgraded to siphon health to players, and also burst with a damaging AOE blast. This ability uses the switch ability mechanic to manually detonate the leeches.

Items in the set:

  • Weapon – Cane of Caduceus
  • Ability – Bloodletting Leeches
  • Armour – Doctor’s Overcoat
  • Ring – Plague Mask

Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is all about getting dressed and throwing the best costume together! Last week we started a voting on our official discord server. And you, the community decided on the number 1 skin that everyone will receive for free! The Cleaner Maid Paladin Skin won!

Additionally, the next 8 most voted skins will be added to a quest during the time of the event, where you can choose to redeem one of them. You will also be able to purchase those 8 skins with a discount in our Shop. Either in packs or as a single purchase.

Changes to Dungeon Modifiers

It is time we adjust the Dungeon Modifiers. As you know, Dungeon Modifiers are special properties that can appear in dungeons that modify several aspects of the gameplay for that particular run. At the same time, dungeons have a Difficulty level, which is used as a generic metric for how challenging the dungeon is.

In the future, we want to improve the Difficulty levels system for all dungeons, and one of the first steps for that, is to change Dungeon Modifiers for all dungeons.

The list of changes for this update is as follows:

  • Dungeon Modifiers are skewed positively. It is not guaranteed but in general, you will see more “positive” than “negative” mods. However, this distinction can sometimes be flimsy as some mods like “Spider Swarm“ and many others have a mixed effect of increasing challenge and rewards to the player.
  • For that reason, dungeon modifiers will not display a “green” or a “red” color; instead, they will all be the same color.
  • In addition, now Dungeon Modifiers will not affect the Difficulty level of the dungeon. This is also in line with our vision for the Difficulty level system and future changes that will come at a later time.
  • Lastly, we have decided to disable Dungeon Modifiers that change the HP and damage inflicted by the enemies. The list of Dungeon Modifiers disabled are below (all intensities):
    • Weak Minions and Boss
    • Tame Minions and Boss
    • Bulky Minions and Boss
    • Elite Minions and Boss
    • Ferocious Minions and Boss

Note: if you have a key with any of these Modifiers it will still be usable. However in the Key Refining system they cannot appear again, so if you reroll, upgrade or downgrade that key, these Dungeon Modifiers won’t appear.

New Dungeon Modifiers

  • To make up for the removed modifiers, we have created the following options:
    • Heroic Defense, Heroic Frenzy, Heroic Damage, Heroic Speed
      • Allows enemies to drop Heroic orbs which apply effects other than Healing and Energised.
      • The orbs dropped give the following effects (in this order):
        • Armored
        • Berserk
        • Damaging
        • Speedy
      • Drop rate of the orbs is roughly half that of the Healing and Energised versions.
    • Unprepared I-V
      • Reduces the rate of health and mana potion drops from minions.
  • A number of other Modifiers have been changed as part of this pass:
  • Dull, Keen, Skilled and Lazy modifiers now have one extra level each.
  • Found Treasure! I and II can now spawn alongside other reward-type modifiers.
  • Survivor has been broken into 5 levels to match Unprepared.

Changes and Fixes

  • Added the fix for the O3 DC issues that you helped us test a while back!
  • Fixed the issue with the Eye Emote.
  • Medusa and Beholder now have the correct original projectile sprite.
  • Fixed an issue with the projectile sprites of the Sweetheart Taichi reskin.
  • Shard of the Advisor has its description edited to be more in line with the other Shard items.
  • Fixed a visual issue where the Mission’s progress would get stuck in the Mission hub.
  • Fixed an issue where the interaction box would not collapse and get stuck on the screen.
  • Reverted the last updates changes to server names back to the old ones.
  • Character no longer blinks yellow when equipping Invocation Scroll ability or any other ability with multiple subabilities.
  • Fixed an issue where a string of numbers was displayed on hover for abilities without any damage.
  • Damage for abilities are now displayed when hovering from any tooltip without damage.
