Beta server update: New dungeon
« on: September 11, 2014, 09:59:14 pm »
A new dungeon has been added on the beta server in Night Tear: Altar to Pandamius. This dungeon includes a 3-player fight.

The dungeon do not have any drop yet, it is available on the beta server only for testing purposes.
Any player willing to try the fights and give feedback on the difficulty would be very welcome!
This is especially true for the multiplayer fight that could not be tested a lot internally, so your help is very appreciated.


A few other features have been added:
- You can use arrow keys to move your character
- you can ctrl + single clic a monster to target it
- It is now possible to write comments on fight replays

Checkpoints 9, 5 and 10 (guardian, trash, boss) all fall pretty easy to summons.  Though to be fair I do use soulreaper level charms.

Checkpoints 3 and 4 do not fold to summons.  3 was interesting.  I didn't like 4 at first because it seemed like the first couple of charms were hiding something, but then I realized that it was actually pretty straightforward and just about timing. Good stuff, really.

Hopefully I'll get to try the raid tomorrow.

I'm beginning to wonder if an all-around nerf of summons is not in order. It's not the first time where battles are way too easy for them.

Anyway, all kind of replays for boss/guardian/raids are welcome, if you found them too easy to too hard.

Hahahahahah, the essence gathering node is hilariously broken.  Replays are unavailable.  It might crash the server at some point.

Also, you probably haven't updated beta with any new charm stuff, but just in case:

Ritual Dagger is still broken on beta (as per Gunthar's thread here)

gabbin, can you detail what makes you think you may crash the server?
i just noticed the beta server has been going nuts since the patch, i had to restart it
so it won't compromise the www site. there's a critical bug here.

I don't really know whats making it go berserk?  But it does seem to be lacking a win condition, so the fight will continue indefinitely.

unfinishing battles seem to be the cause, yeah. the server's
cpu load was 100% all the time. i need lez to fix this bug,
but i released a new patch to improve battle move, let me
know what you think of it.

HA!  Whitemane Bears really charge now!  My Pack Alpha and his wolves really run around! This is great!

The movement indicator is also great!  It might need a darker outline though, or make the gradient a little stronger.

Tweaks on the raid might have been too much.  I think the consensus is that the HP on Dread could go back up and it would be about right.

The last version of the raid seemed pretty good, albeit a bit tough (but hey it's lvl 42 and I wasn't perfectly geared for it either).

We didn't play with the healing from magic damage though, not sure that bit is relevant at this stage.

I like the direction icon near your char. :)

Is there some "chat function"  (like "/me" ...) for the shoutbox ? Don't remember if there was some for E1
