Patch Notes - July 9th

July 9th, 2014

Greetings Opulencians,

Here are the changes brought to the game by our latest patch:


Several skills in the game have been updated as part of our ongoing balancing . The biggest change is to the healing component of certain skills, which has been replaced with another defensive ability. Read on for more details about the changes to skills.

- Healing Strike:
- The healing effect has been removed.
- Now creates a shield that absorbs damage, lasting up to 8 seconds.
- The skill is now named Shielding Strike.

- Jab:
- Cooldown reduced to 0.2 seconds.
- Mana cost increased to 8.

- Punt:
- Changed the aiming mechanic of this skill so that it works in whatever direction the mouse cursor is facing, rather than automatically targeting the closest enemy. This lets you have more control over how you use Punt.

- Death Bolt:
- Now creates a shield that absorbs damage for up to 4 seconds and weakens the attacks of the targeted creature.

- Death Grip:
- The healing effect has been removed.
- Now increases your Armor by +5% per affected Creature up to 200% total.
- The armor buff disperses when you stop casting the spell.
- Increased the cooldown to 7 seconds.

- Fireball:
- The time between casting the spell and the impact of the projectile has been reduced. The area of effect is the same across all the levels of the skill. Both impact damage and damage over time affect the same area.

Staying on the topic of balancing, here are the changes to the Creatures:

Bad Dog:
- Improved the creature's harassing capabilities
- Added 30% Snare Resistance.
- Movement speed increased from 4 to 5.5 meters per second.
- Easier navigation when in large groups (seems legit, it's a pack creature!).
- New quicker attack.

- New “Howl” Buff
- Increases the movement speed for every creature in a 5 meter radius for 5 seconds by 30%.
- Buff Cooldown: 10 seconds

- New health values:

- Improved the creature's ability to harass the attacker
- Added 30% Snare Resistance
- Easier navigation in large groups
- New quicker attack

- New “Howl” Buff
- Increases the movement speed of every creature in a 5 meter radius for 5 seconds by 30%
- Increases the snare resistance of every creature in a 5 meter Radius for 5 seconds (except for Bad Dog and Bad Dog Elite) by +60%
- Buff Cooldown: 10 seconds

- New health values:

Crowns system

- We've made changes to how often the same attacker gives crowns to the defender. As a defender, you will now gain crowns by beating the same attacker once per 24 hour period, up from 15 minutes. This addresses an exploit where some players would let themselves die intentionally in a castle to boost that player's crowns.

- Fixed a bug that caused defenders to win Crowns from much higher level attackers who died in their castle even though the big difference in the number of Crowns between the attacker and the defender should result in no Crowns gained/lost on either side.


Destructible barricades can be placed to hinder an attacker's passage in your castle and provide some temporary cover for your creatures. You can find barricades in the Architect's Office. More barricades will be coming soon, including a 1x3 crate variant available in either gold or blings.

Other changes and novelties

Marleybone has started a career as a designer and is proud to present you his creations: a new theme for your castle, a fetching hat and new Voodoo Doll pets!

Cornelius has reorganized his store counters to make it easier for his customers to find the Castle Themes, Costumes and Pets that they desire. Visit his shop by clicking on the button in the upper left corner of the screen.

Reduced the occurrence of a bug that caused animated loading icons to remain stuck on the screen.

Upgrading your Castle buildings is now easier: open the specific building's window by clicking on the menu icons in the center-top of the screen (or by using the F1 to F6 keys) then click on the up-arrow next to the X button of the building's interface that pops-up on the left side of the screen.

The Watch_Dogs and Chickenwalk castles in the Competition Zone have been demolished. I wonder what construction project will spring up in their place...

Show Off Your Colors - Winners!

July 4th, 2014

The judges had a hard time picking out one winner per class and after hours of heated debates, Chevalier-Noir-, Gaw, -:[NAION]:- and Keeperofthelight were chosen to receive an Ultimate Pack each. Here's some insight into the judging process:

This way to the video!


Chevalier-Noir- starts off our selection today with a wonderful Banishing Black ensemble. Touches of Ominous Orange and Madness Magenta remind us of burning embers, something the superb Lil Smokey Pet and burning Sword complement nicely. Dancing among his enemies while his Damage-Reflecting-Armors do the dirty work was an impressive show of confidence! Runner-up is Godefroilehardi with a chic combination of Gang Green armor and Watch Dogs Bandana.


Sir Painhammer warned us that choosing the most beautiful Archer would be difficult, but Gaw really went all the way. Actually, he went even further than all the way! Purple Special Edition Bat Brigade Hat, Watch Dogs Legendary Cape, a delightful mélange of Venturous Violet and Youthful Yellow armors, and the exquisitely paired Lil Arachbro to go with it. He even has the Double O Eagle to follow him around! Dhoinne came in close second by rocking the Pirate Hat and a Rockin’ Red Tunic set like no other.


-:[NAION]:- took everyone by surprise with an electric and eclectic Earl of Evilosity. Closely followed by his loyal Mr. Squiddlins, this Blurred-Blue-and-Ogre-Ochre version of the Earl really put on the show for our greatest pleasure. And we are still wondering where he got that silly but avant-garde hat! Master Shake was a strong runner-up, his Banishing Black-and-Youthful-Yellow costume being the best outfit to emphasize his remarkable set of Icy Crown and Wings and his Epic Weapon. And Bubble Tom adds the perfect finishing touch.


Finally, with Keeperofthelight the Runaway found herself the best stylist in Opulencia. Colors are flying everywhere in this fantastic apparel, and her paired Watch Dogs Axe - Baby Blue Pet is a touch we only expect from the most trendy Opulencian. Claudlorr also rocked our hearts and souls with a mix of Banishing Black, Madness Magenta and Turbulent Turquoise. The Tuxedo Nigel Pet was icing on a cake so good that it would make us not fit in our designer clothes anymore!

"Diablo meets Dungeon Keeper"
PC Gamer

"Mighty Quest is like pop-corn. You take just a few to taste them and you end up finishing the whole pot without noticing."

"At its core, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot shows a lot of promise. I love the dungeon building and the quick and instant gratification the hack n’ slash looting gives."

"The name may be a bit confusing, then, but there's no mistaking the warmth lurking within wonderful chunky art and the neat dovetailing of complimentary systems."

“Mighty Quest is on its way to becoming the essential multi-player game for the non-multi-player”
The Examiner

About the Game

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a brand new game from Ubisoft Montreal that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!

As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players!

Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!

Key Features

  • Castle Looting: Prepare your hero for battle and charge into one of many player-created castles to test your skills and might! Oh yeah, and don’t forget all the loot and gold waiting for you in the treasure room at the end of the castle.
  • Castle Defense: Protect your treasure from the greedy hands of your neighbors. You and your friends can build custom castles with majestic rooms and fill them with deadly monsters like fire-breathing dragons, nose-picking Cyclopes, swarming vampires and more. Then, surprise your foes by boosting your castle’s defenses with fearsome fire cannons, spike traps and other surprises. The more enemies perish in your castle, the higher the reward.
  • Variety of Heroes: The outlandish world of Opulencia has an eccentric cast of characters ranging from the knight, Sir Painhammer, a good-natured tough guy to Blackeye Bowgart, an archer with a chip on his shoulder. More will be available in the near future.
  • Character Customization: Plain armor is out this season, shiny metal is in. Use your well-earned gold to shop and customize and level up your heroes in style.
  • Showboating: Think you are the baddest of the bad in all of Opulencia? Prove it by creating different challenges for your foes and compare yourself on the leaderboards.
  • Intense Action: Play on your own schedule. Short sessions means you can play when you want to. It also doesn’t hurt to have others playing at the same time, but you don’t need them playing simultaneously to experience looting at its best.

BTW This is not a multiplayer game.
Very linear progressing game, due to limited choices in developing a castle or caracter there is nothing you can create to take your own path...
They have now changed the gamerules ripping me of my progress and making the game more lame, plus since they introduces validating after changes and leveling linked with your castle heart it is now no longer possible to have a 'large' castle with low level monsters. If you want to change anything you'll have to validate the castle, so making a quick change is no longer possible......
In short it went from a poor game to lame and uninteresting...and we are not even away from beta yet.
If you haven't got it GET SOMETHING ELSE.

Bought my chair years ago, luckely my carpenter doesn't come by once a month to ask me money for every time i sat in his chair (there is a counter build in)under the argument that he (or most of the times a greedy somebody else, but he who bought the 'legal' right) made it so many years ago and that was such hard work that he wants to be paid for it for the rest of his life, so he can sit on the beach.
Oh, and he also used poor quality paint, and the contract states that you have to pay him every year to repaint it and you are not allowed to do it yourself or force him to use quality paint....he can take away the chair any time you do not comply.
I would probably laugh at him, throw him & the chair out of my house while calling him a thief and build my own chair or just sit on the floor...

I like the looks and the slightly funny info of the game.
Might be something for people who want to play 5-10 minutes per day on the same game
But for all others.....
The way you should build your castle is very slow, about one move per day or per 2 days, if you want more you have to spend real money to get the game going.

But the real problem is the game itself:
Due to the slow buildup of your castle and/or hero it will probably not remain in my playlist for very long. The earning models to buy gems to speed up the process if you want to have some development in the game makes it unplayable. Same goes for the upgrades of the mines, in the beginning it's manageble, but somewhere near 140 per hour you have to wait 6 hours to get 14 pc more per hour, this takes 70 hours to reclaim the loss of 6 hours, with the following upgrades it gets even worse.
The whole game seems to revolve around getting virtual money, in the form of blue, green and yellow money, so you can progress.
I have to wait 2-3 days now and login twice a day to upgrade part A and then wait another 2-3 days (with 2 logins a day) for part B...when i'm at part D or F i can then build one extra room......for people who enjoy waiting for the grass to grow, this is it.
Oh, i can also spend real money to speed this up, good luck big spenders and bling lovers.

So you want people that don't pay extra to only reach a high level if they put in a few hundred hours at least and for real money they can build that in a few hours....it's the death of gaming.
Where the basis should be that you start with equal chances and may the best win, here it is: may the foolish with deep pockets win.
I am now at the point that the losses per day are equal to the earnings, if i want to proceed i have to log a lot of attacks (some 30 in one day) on other castles or spend real money.

As you can see, most positive reviews are from people who have only played it 2-3 hours, ask them again IF they ever reach 10 or more hours if it's fun.
To bad the gaming industry is so greedy, they destroy gameplay in the hopes they can get rich over your frustration.

About games that play online only, it is a concept where you pay money to get NOTHING.
You should never pay for that, unless you like to sponsor greedy and possibly lazy people.

Let's make that comparison in real life, you buy a new game like agricola (only single player i know, but this also works for multiplayer game like monopoly, but in the rules it states that sometimes your game is just gone for a few days or unusable for hours because:
a) you don't have the key to open the box and you have to connect via internet to the company, they will verify and send you an unlock code IF there servers are online, otherwise get a deck of cards because you can't open the box.
b) the company decides when they want to change something to the game and don't give you an access key to the box until you have accepted the new board/rules/pieces and have send proof of destroying the now, according to the company, obsolete parts of the game.
c) if you leave the game unlocked out of the box without logging moves somebody from the company drives by and closes and locks the game for you or takes it away because you broke the unreasonable and sometimes illegal licence agreement.
d) if the company thinks they have earned enough or that the profit is too low they push a button and all sold games are locked forever...in basic they destroy your property or at least making it impossible to use. but you may be able to buy the same game with more detailled visuals if you want and sign an even more absurd and immoral licence agreement.
e) you have to have a working internet connection even when you are at home playing agricola or monopoly with some friends and log all moves made by the players otherwise some people from the company come by and take away the game. Possibly if your internet connection is made via an android machine they also want to know your exact gps location while playing monopoly, all phonenumbers and calls you make or recieve, when you scratched your left ear, your eternal soul and your firstborn child.
f) if you want to win at monopoly you just pay the company and they give you different 'chance' cards and an instruction to make it look like you just picked them from the deck or maybe just programmable dice.....those naturally selfdestruct after use, so buy some more....

If the servers are down you only have some waisted harddisk space. If you are somewhere without internet you can't play although you pay....if it's a game you want to play again years later you suddenly discover that the servers are down and will never come up again. USELESS and in my opinion theft.

Singleplayer games that have no offline mode have no right of existence and should not be sponsored....

You used to have multiplayer games with lan capability, so you could play at home with friends, just as with monopoly and even start a server after years of being abandoned.....i'm almost wondering where my cd of RTCW is, although the graphics are crap the gameplay is good and after all these years it still works.

This game is highly remenisent of Dungeon Keeper 2 with aspects of Dungeon Siege.
It has great beginning game functionality and playablity. But as far as later game is becomes stale and repetative.
It's a great game for a day when you only want to play something for about an hour.
4/10 from me.

Now, older, wiser, and all the other nonsensical things I've become, I'm once more editing this review. To reiterate on the original, DO NOT EXPERIMENT WITH CONTROLS. As much as it pains me to say that, it is the cardinal rule of Mighty Quest, as otherwise it will lock you in the tutorial, and cause crashes to desktop.
After you've made it through the; problematic, tutorial, you gain access to the actual game, which rapidly declines into the typical grind of dungeon crawlers, but without any of the nice little elements a full title has, such as plot, or developed rpg elements.

While in several other reviews I've written I say that you can never go wrong with free, Ubisoft felt pretty determined to test that statement, and I suggest caution when beginning to play. I truly do recommend this game to those players who find entertainment in playing games such as Diablo, or other dungeon crawlers, but don't have the time to invest more than ten minutes or so a day, but to players looking for a game with a bit more depth than a glorified Facebook game, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Open beta 26.02.2014

A Uplay account from Ubisoft is required (Come on, Valve! Stop this nonsense, please! Keep these games away from your store or ask other developers not to mess with your DRM...)

After too much handholding (15-20 minutes or so) with no way to skip you get to build your own castle in the sky. Initially it contains only bare necessities and three rooms. After placing traps and monsters to prevent other people from looting your mana and gold you have to beat the new-design castle yourself before it gets published. If you take too long, anyone will be able to take the treasures away from you.

You cannot place large numbers of monsters because you have a low budget at the start. You are just another newbie, unprotected and insecure. Other people may storm your gates, kill your monsters, loot your gold and mana. There is a way to defend your castle together with your monsters but I have yet to figure it out.

You get the resources to equip your hero and your castle by either collecting them from two wells (initially) or pillaging other people’s castles. And when you do it, you find out that camera controls are bad. Camera can be turned only by 90 degrees every time, four times to make a full circle. And what’s worse: it is impossible to change key bindings. And I wish camera turning were better when you have to choose what castle to loot next.

Then there is ability bloat or something. At about level 5 or 6 you find out that the number of open slots on your action bar is less than the number of available abilities. What to choose? Or is it possible to buy more slots with cash? You cannot drag other abilities (I think) while storming a castle and you cannot immediately equip looted items.

But is the game fun? Yes, quite fun. Only if Uplay doesn’t screw things over. Oh, yes, I also like the colors and the overall approach to graphics. It is a fairy-tale game. It inspires good mood if you can play. But if you can’t…?

Do I recommend the game? Only if the servers are stable. Otherwise, wait for it.

UPDATE 02.03.2013

After playing a couple of days (most of the played time counted by Steam is me doing something else while the game is alt-tabbed) I can add new information.

When other people attack your castle and take all your treasures it seems that only a percentage of the gold and life force in storage is taken. The treasures in your wells are not affected. They are safe. Right after a successful attack you cannot loot them but they get rebuilt quickly and then you can loot them.

Getting other people’s treasures can be as hard as it gets. Right after explosive traps become available and the traps that catapult your hero into the middle of a bunch of the explosive traps every step you take in an enemy’s castle can be deadly. Fun? Not sure.

Chicken castles!
However, there is a silver lining. Some friendly souls have decided that offering people a fast way to get loot and XP might be more fun. I’ve found one castle (and I am on the lookout for more) that instead of traps and monsters is populated by chickens only. With a proper level, these “monsters” give a lot of XP, drop a lot of loot and gold. High five! My castle is now one of them. Too bad I cannot place the chickens proper for my level: gold is hard to come by.

About in-game currency changes.
Judging by third-party wikis available on the Internet prices for castle upgrades have been drastically raised after the latest patch. And only the heart of the castle now requires life force for upgrades. All the other upgrades (except for creature upgrades in the research lab and new creatures in summoning portal) require gold.

I am now at level 21 and my castle is the same level. While one enemy castle can give you about 1000 gold (if you are lucky because people jealously guard their treasure) you need 26k to upgrade your portal (allows summoning new creatures), 20k or so to upgrade your research lab (allows improving existing creatures), 85k to upgrade your blacksmith to be able to make level 24-29 stuff (armor, weapons, jewelry), any piece of equipment costs between 18k and 40k. So basically you rely on drops.

If you are frustrated by dying a lot in other people’s castles, there are NPC castles, which are somewhat easy. And then there is a hidden feature: you can buy loot and potions (you cannot buy castle upgrades) with blings. For instance, if you don’t have enough gold, you press Buy button in the blacksmith shop and you see the option to purchase the item with blings. So those are useful.

Earning blings in the game is slow: they are only given by taking part in competitions (25 for a spot close to the top) and completing quests (one per zone). Buy them? They will not make your progression too easy but you will definitely be able to wear a complete set of gear proper for your level the way the developers probably intended.

Slow levelling
Even with blings that allow you to buy one-hour (real time, not in-game time, so don’t alt-tab out) 50% boosts for magic find, gold find, and XP levelling will be slow. But then why do I need to level? Raiding some bosses at lvl30? Some cooperative gameplay? No idea. Maybe there is nothing at the top except the ability to build your castle the way you want and stuff it with monsters and traps.

Heroes are kind of jerkwads, at least if you accept the premise of The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. It's not enough that they've pillaged fortunes untold from dungeons and assorted baddies; in their idle hours, they engage in home invasions of their neighbors in Opulencia, their medieval Columbia-style floating city in the sky. Good thing for us, then, that this game's combat reminds us that there's some fun in being a jerk. Even better, Mighty Quest supports an unobtrusive free-to-play model, although a few drawbacks threaten to send this airborne lootfest crashing from the sky.
Stupid fun, though not particularly groundbreaking. It will certainly entertain those in need of a quick gaming fix, but won’t replace Diablo in your library any time soon
