Patch X.21.0 - Public Faming!



Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

With this update, we are thrilled to introduce a new Quality of Life feature. Whenever you are in the Nexus or on the Character Selection screen, you can now access a new panel and see the character's lifetime statistics!

This information has been stored by us forever, but previously players could only see it when their characters died or by using third party tools. It felt like this sort of data should be easier for players to access! Additionally, this panel lists all of the current achievements that grant players bonus Fame upon death, another piece of previously hidden data. Hopefully, this will make the Fame System a little less opaque to you.

This update has given us an opportunity to take a hard look at this current set of Achievements; and we think they could be better. We have not made many changes yet, but are planning to, in a future release, update the Achievements to be less arbitrary and exploitable, and hopefully more fun and engaging. We know that Fame is an important resource to players, and there are many of you who spent hours optimizing how much fame your character would earn - eventually making it to the Leaderboards.

Stay tuned for some more in the next updates and in the meantime, share with us your feedback on that new feature, how it can be improved and continue sharing with us ideas of changes you would wish for the Bonus Fame Achievements.

End of Oryxmas Events

The Oryxmas celebrations have come to an end.
  • The Permafrost Lord no longer spawns in the Realms.
  • Encounters and quests now have their normal sprites back.
  • Reskinned abilities and other items no longer drop from Events.
  • Tokens (Ice Shards, Primal Ice, Ornaments and Bells) no longer drop from Encounters and quests.
  • Tokens can still be used to claim rewards if you have a full stack.
  • Reindeer companions no longer grant buffs when activated but can still be summoned.
  • Santa's Workshop can still be accessed if you use a key, tokens still drop from Santa's Workshop.
  • Event Quests will remain available for an extra week, allowing you to turn in your Primal Ice for weapons as well as Ice Shards for Primal Ice and SW keys (until 01-15-18).

New Feature: Statistics Panel

You can now access a new Statistics panel in-game by either clicking on the Fame icon (Character selection screen) or on the (i) button next to fame on the GUI.

The panel displays information on your current character's performance:
  • Statistics (number of shots, abilities used, gods killed, etc.)
  • Fame bonuses (status locked/unlocked, fame gain from each bonus, etc.)
  • Total Fame on Death

The statistics displayed in the panel are updated each time you enter the Nexus or go back to the Character selection screen.

Character creation date will only apply for new characters created after today and display "Unknown" for older characters. Because it was not functioning correctly, the Legacy Builder achievement has been disabled.

Quality of Life
  • Added Shop Button on HUD for direct access from within the Nexus, replacing the old packages button.
  • Added (i) and (+) Button on the Resources to have a direct call to action for the new Statistics Panel and to Buy Gold.
Fixes
  • Fixed player limit issue when attempting to use portals that lead to the Nexus or Realm.
  • Fixed certain dungeons not counting towards the Dungeons Completed counter.

Patch X.20.1 - Oryxmas Eve!



Hey everyone, Krathan here. We hope you enjoyed this winter so far!

Before we get started, I'd like to clear up some things about our recent server mishaps, specifically in Ice Tombs.

Firstly, I want to assure you that it did not leave us cold. You're not alone in being frustrated and mad, we're right there with you. Initially, we intended to communicate with you about the issue more, but in the last few days, we mostly focused on fixing those issues instead - hence why it has been somewhat silent from our end, sorry about that.

All dungeons now come with a default limit of 85 players. We also have a potential fix which might finally put an end to these so-called lag deaths, as primarily but not exclusively seen in the Lair of Draconis and Ice Tomb. Keep us updated if the issue still occurs!

Now, onward to more pleasant things!

Events

It is time. Craig's preparations are finally done! His plethora of presents for the Mad God is finally ready. Oryxmas can finally truly begin! That is if something doesn't go wrong…

Meanwhile, a new presence has set their sight on the Realms… with the full intention to never let this winter end! Their minions already started taking over the Mountains!

Santa's Workshop

Enter Craig’s secret location where all of Oryx's gifts are stored. Destroy as many gift boxes as you can before the Present Protection Extraction protocol is activated! Be quick and loot smart as you’ll have 120 seconds before the gift boxes become invulnerable. The farther you go, the better the rewards are!

This exclusive solo dungeon can be entered using a special key in your vault. You’ll be able to get keys via Daily Quest, drops from event chests or mystery boxes.

Thanks to u/happy_cookie for her incredible work on the Santa's Workshop.

Permafrost Lord

A new seasonal Encounter has arrived - the Permafrost Lord! In addition to Ice Shards and Primal Ice he has the following rare drops:
  • Frost Citadel Armor
  • Frost Elementalist Robe
  • Frost Drake Hide Armor
  • Staff of Iceblast
  • Tome of Frigid Protection
  • Eternal Snowflake Wand

Grinch & Chest Events

A lot of Dungeons will be hosting Event Chests in the coming days: The Nest, Ocean Trench, The Shatters, Manor of the Immortals, Davy Jones’s Locker, Woodland Labyrinth, Mountain Temple, Ice Cave & Puppet Master’s Encore!

Check out the Events Calendar and we will be posting the details and loot tables on Reddit at the start of each event.

The Grinch also crashes into your dungeons to steal some of your Loot:
  • The event will run from 12/14 until 01/05
  • Dungeons: Undead Lair, Mad Lab, Toxic Sewers, Abyss of Demons, Puppet Master’s Theatre, Parasite Chambers and Snake Pit
  • The Grinch will sometimes spawn after defeating the Boss of the Dungeon: hurry up before he escapes with your Loot through a portal!

Grinch’s Loot table:

  • Santa Workshop Key
  • Festive Slurp Pet Stone
  • Christmas Tree Pet Stone
  • Mystery Stat Pot
  • Tokens
  • Oryxmas Consumables
And finally, the patch notes themselves!

Changes


  • Lowered default player limit for Dungeons and Bazaars to 85 players.
  • Enabled teleportation in The Nest for the upcoming Chest Event.
Fixes
  • PMs no longer bypass the star filter.
  • Fixed right-click chat player menu not functioning if player is on different instance - available options are Whisper, Block and Add Friend.
  • Fixed disconnection issue with using abilities while getting Quieted.
Quality of Life
  • Optional Encounters have their own color on the minimap.
  • Pressing the Up Arrow in chat repeats the latest sent chat message.

Balancing
