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!

Hey everyone, Krathan here again! Winter is com-... winter is here!

Events

Lots of rewards in the December Login Calendar await our most loyal and active adventurers. Tomorrow, keep an eye out for the new calendar and do not forget to log into the game every day to claim your gifts!

The Ice Tomb is back and can be entered from the Court of Oryx… if Craig does not mess up! Loot tables have also been updated with the new exclusive items from this season.

Throughout the month, most encounters in the Realm are dropping tokens that will allow you to acquire some cool new items:

  • Ornaments: a stack of 25 will grant you the exclusive Helping Huntress Skin.
  • Bells: a stack of 10 will grant you one of Santa's magical flying Reindeer that can be summoned to boost your stats for a limited period of time. Can you catch them all before the season ends?
  • Primal Ice and Ice Shards: The Tinkerer has gotten an Ice Forge for Christmas and is happy to help you in making powerful Ice Weapons. With 20 Primal Ice he can forge the Ice Weapon of your choice to sleigh enemies with this holiday. Once a day, he will also exchange a stack of 5 Ice Shards into Primal Ice.
  • Quests will be available on December 1st.
