Patch 2.34 - A lot has changed since April...

We have been listening! See what has been improved in Villagers and Heroes!



What has changed since the game launched on Steam in April?

In short:
  • Much improved fluid, action-oriented combat
  • Removal of the pay for energy mechanic
  • A vast improvement on our social features and UI
  • The addition of rolling, both as a fun movement option, but also as a dodging game mechanic
  • Spell fusions, and a focus on teamwork and party mechanics
  • Crash fixes, bug fixes, faster download
  • More ambient sounds like footsteps
  • More emotes like dancing
  • And a whole slew of new content, including new end game content, revamped tutorials, and new events

And all of these changes were based on feedback from you the players! We have been listening!

Since launching on Steam five months ago, we’ve taken the excellent suggestions and feedback provided by all of our users, and vastly improved our game as a result. Our latest build, Sands of the Equinox 2.34, while featuring an intoxicating new event with an array of desert themed bosses, bounties, and loot, is also characterized by a number of other changes we’ve made with regards to basic game mechanics and style of play – changes that players of any level, high or low, will surely find exciting.

For the adventurously inclined, you’ll be thrilled to discover that we’ve revamped our entire combat system so that it’s not only more fluid and responsive, but it now includes a variety of dynamic new actions and movements -- aerial acrobatics, tucking and rolling, agile strafing, increased acceleration while attacking foes, and more. With the addition of tucking and rolling also comes the ability to dodge, time your defense, tuck and roll out of the way dodging the coming onslaught. We also spent a large portion of time fine tuning our classes, improving visual and audio effects, adding new spells and feats, and finally adding spell fusions, where party members can fuse their feats and spells with one another, creating more powerful and devastating effects.

And for our craft loving players, because we firmly believe that Villagers and Heroes should be accessible to all users alike, we have completely removed the ‘Pay-for-Energy’ mechanic from within our game. Our new system, one which allows for ‘Vim’ to be naturally replenished by crafters in all manner of different ways, contains a plethora of ways to engage with, strategize about, and take advantage of. Thus, players can advance in crafting more rapidly through savvy gameplay and strategy.

Patch 2.34 marks an exciting turn for us! Thanks to the invaluable feedback from our community, modifications, great and small, have been made across the board: players can now dance and sit, and listen to the sound of their own running footsteps as they explore secret new areas in the lower zones where an array of entertaining surprises now await. High level players will not only revel in the addition of fourteen brand new zones with challenging quest chains to unravel, but we’ve also included an end game mechanic which will hereafter keep players consistently engaged even after reaching level cap. Moreover, players of all levels will be happy to find that we’ve revamped our housing policies, fixed countless bugs, greatly sped up the download time of the game, added new feats and spells, not to mention an entire upgrade on all of our social features, and two special event zones concurrently running. And that’s just the short list of changes we’ve made…

So thank you, new players and veteran players alike! Our game is better because of you all. But don’t take our word for it. Experience Sands of the Equinox 2.34 for yourselves. We’ve been listening, and you won’t be disappointed.

“There are 10 different gathering professions: mining, fishing, bug lore, plant lore, smithing, cooking, tailoring, woodcrafting, gardening and ranching. The coolest part is that one character can become an expert at all of them. So Villagers and Heroes is a class-based, sandbox-crafter's paradise with nicely interactive housing.”

Step into a magical land unlike any other!

Villagers and Heroes is a free-to-play MMO game in which players experience the thrill of battling unique monsters, the satisfaction of crafting powerful weapons and gear, and the pleasure of building lasting friendships in a friendly community.

Gnomish Augmentation = Sandbox Gameplay.

This unique feature is at the heart of the deep yet elegantly simple player choice system in Villagers & Heroes. The weapons and armor that a player equips not only grant a versatile assortment of heroic feats and spells, but also a large array of proficiencies and augmented abilities. The process of Gnogmenting gives the players the ability to mix, match, swap, replace, customize and design gear exactly how they want! Combine ancient elder gear with remarkable weaponry dropped from the monsters of the world. Or craft your own gear using any or all of the 10 gathering and crafting skills available. Gnogmenting is a completely free-form, sandbox system that is unmatched by any other game in its depth, and lets players test every tactic and indulge every creative whim.

Bounty Runs!

Bounties are powerful adversaries and monsters that roam every corner of the world. When a player defeats a bounty monster, they earn a large reward, regardless of the size of their party! Solo the beasties by yourself, or rampage across the countryside with a group of friends. Bounty rewards are instantaneous and do not require activation. This feature encourages teamwork and strategy.

Live in a Real Home in a Real Village.

You are the architect, the farmer, and the rancher. With a wide range of building styles to choose from, players can design and decorate their own houses, as well as choose which crops to plant in their garden, or select the type of animals they'd most like to raise. But players needn't go at it alone! Help your village grow from a tiny hamlet to a thriving metropolis by aiding your neighbors with community projects which will ultimately benefit every member of the village.

Features

  • 8 Primary Combat Class Builds, with a myriad of meaningful variations
  • 10 Crafting Professions: Fishing, Mining, Bug Collecting, Plant Lore, Woodcrafting, Smithing, Cooking, Tailoring, Gardening, and Ranching
  • Gardening and Ranching: hundreds of different crops, sheep, pigs, chickens, and exotics like ember sheep, shadow sheep, etc.
  • Bounty Runs! Now with over 1500 unique bounties.
  • Real player housing with dozens of decoration options
  • Real Villages that can be leveled up by all members of the Village with better facilities (Forge, Tailory, Kitchen, Woodshop), opening new neighborhoods with housing for more players, mayors, a shared vault, stocking village resources, and more...
  • Gnogmenting: Combine crafted gear and elder gear from defeating lair bosses and rare randomly found exotic gear for an unlimited number of combinations of functionality and appearance
  • Auction House with thriving in-game economy
  • Hundreds of Magical Spells, Heroic Feats, and Abilities
  • More than 1000 Quests and Charters

This game is very fun and i would have recommended it if it weren't for the Vim system. The game is largely about crafting and gathering which i found to be very fun, and you can have a house, which is also very fun and has a lot of perks, but there is a limit to how much you can gather or craft in a day because you have "stamina" or Vim that runs out. You don't become aware of vim until a skill reaches lvl 15, but after that you can only gather or craft 100 times, unless you use a vim potion, which you have to craft, so you spend half the day gathering so you can craft so you can gather some more etc. etc. i hate this system and for that reason alone i quit playing. It's a pretty solid game otherwise but again as you can't really buy the items you need without investing real money into the game or grinding for weeks i think it's a waste of time.

People keep saying that the controls feel like a facebook type game and the like. Well, this game WAS actually on facebook a long time ago. I played this game a few years back and when I log into facebook, I can still see this game on my list. While it has improved from it's facebook days somewhat, it's still not up to par. It is creative in it's own right (Bughunting as a profession!?) and it does offer player housing and growing stuff in your garden and caring for animals. I do like having some form of simulation aspects in my games.

But it is really clunky, and it has a lot of 'seen that, did it in another mmo!' type of vibe. It's also not graphically appealing and for the most part I kept the sound off.

It's playable and you might get some entertainment out of it, but there is definitely better out there.

While I'm all for every generic MMO out there, this one is just not fun.

Combat is very boring and generic, which is fine. I didn't want to be a combat character anyways.

I enjoy crafting and gathering, but once you hit 16, you suddenly lose the ability to gather and craft as you want. Now every action is dependent on "Vim" which gets you one point every 6 hours.

My current "playtime" of this game consists of logging on, making a few logs for the community project then logging off for the rest of the day.

My other option to restore Vim is to do charter missions (which I need Vim to do durrr) or go hunt creatures for several hours so I can get back to wasting all of my Vim in one go. For a game that shows off how crafter friendly this game is, it sure is not at all.

I love playing this game. I waited several months before reviewing to make sure I get the full experience.

Firstly, the game is always changing. I'm not even talking about different lvls and such. The developers really listen to suggestions to make the game better and they do make fixes to go along with those requests.
As far as lvls go, there are plenty of bounties/maps/monsters to kill at each lvl.

I do love how you can either play solo (with the occasional group for harder bosses) or join a guild, you don't have to do either.

If anyone says it's pay to win, it's not. It's easier if you pay for certian, but you can do it without spending a penny.

My wife and I were looking for a free to play online multiplayer game to try out together. There were a few criteria for our search: 1) Both of our machines had to be able to run it (she has an older laptop with a low-end graphics card; 2) It had to be free (not interested in subscription-based MMORPGs); 3) It had to have a 'casual' feel to it so that we could focus enjoying the game rather than trying to figure it out. We sifted through the Steam searches, and came across this one.

I've seen Villagers and Heroes decribed as the "not too smart, but cute love-child of World of Warcraft and Runescape." After sinking 26 hrs into it, I'd say that description is pretty accurate. It's not a very complex game, but it's a fun game. My wife enjoyed a lot more of the gathering/crafting -type quests, and I was much more interested in the dungeon crawling and boss matches, but we were both able to play through the game together and have a lot of great nights with it.

The only CON that I need to add in here is the housing system. We were both really excited to purchase houses in one of the villages of the game, but they just act as inventory space (you can't enter them, customize them, or anything). Furthermore, you need to sign into the game every week to pay your 'rent' to keep the place... and I'm away for work quite often so when I came back after a project, both of our houses (and all of our stuff) was gone. I submitted an in-game ticket for support, but one month later I still haven't received a response. Damn.

Oh well, it was still a lot of fun while it lasted. If I get a response back and our stuff is recovered, we may take it back up again.

This game looked so promising to me. a dedicated crafter in MMOs, BUT. I do not mind how silly it looks, what i do mind was that (when i played it) it bug ridden, boring generic MMO. It even looked that several of its features were broken, like inability to move combat, or cliping through well most of things, total inability to make party stay in the same instance (on each portal "loading" we were just dispersed among different instances). Based on my experience i cannot recommend trying tris even if its F2P, you are just wasting time downloading this, ehm abomination. As TB would said "Avoid like plague".

Highly addictive game, worth the tons of hours you will pour into it. With elements of gathering, crafting and even gear modifications added to an RPG style gameplay, this is a game that is sure to entertain you.

Some lag issues and game coding need a fix or two, but overall, you have to try this.

The game even though lacks a bit of graphics has a great potential to maintain at top. Despite having low traffic channels it seems to me that people are bored to explore the game... everyone complaining about the Vim being inadequate..i say start your day with 20-25 bounties and the vim is enough (you get 40-50 more). A very good feature in the game is the village where simply...money talks bul!sh!t walks. Everyone would want his settlement to be one of the best in game but this comes to a very large price. Endless hours of farming to build the projects but you get rewarded as daily quests appear. Plus you have kitchen, smith, tailor in a convinient radius without searching every city.
I personally enjoy this game very much. I would compare this to Aion but a lot more Gbs and graphics. Huge craft radius, lots of areas to explore but server balance is.... :S .I agree with you people saying that V&H is Free-to-Play/Pay-to-Win.
It is funny though and enjoyable :)
F@cking YES from me

A FUN ALPHA BUILD!! (many bad programing errors and feutures that are not polished yet)

I played this game today with my wife for some fun, to enjoy a nice MMORPG. At first look it is great tones of stuff to do, open world style mmo (you dont have to do anything more than the tutorial to do things) and it was quite fun for the first hour.

I encounted many issues, mainly with programing. The game works but there is many "Hacks" in the program, that can and will be exploited if not fixed. (Hack as in a way to program something in, not the right way leaving it open to be exploited, not expecting it to be exploited). It also casues load issues and in some cases can cause system to crash.

The tutorial needs to be worked on and as it sits it is great, it just does not explain "Everything" as in expecting your players to read your tutorial that is longer than 2 sentences is not going to work. They wont, they want to play and you are only wasteing time putting it there.

For the remainder of my time I spent it seeing how much you can troll newbs, and there is alot of trollability. Step one grab a auto clicker. Step 2 find a place where a newb is trying to gather stuff. step three point curser at resource. step four activate auto clicker. Then poor newb cant collect there should be a priority system giving priority to the last person that used node (1 - 3 seconds) this can and will stop this main form of trolling that is already going around in your game.

so to Wrap this up

FUN 8/10
SYSTEMS 5/10 (NEEDS WORK NOT POLISHED)
STABILITY 2/10 (MANY HOLES NEEDS PATCHING)

This game is playable, but not a place you can build a community right now (As that is what the everyday MMORPG gamer wants).

It's a fun little game, the art style reminds me of Disney a bit, and while they do shove adverts and desperate money grabs down your throat, it's still possible to play without parting with any of your real life money.
Great for when you're bored.
Just watch out for those Bogtrogs.

Extremely relaxing fun filled f2p/mts mmo. Thoroughly enjoying it! Came home from work as a bundle of stress, my usual mmo's were more "work", so I browsed for something a little more casual or relaxed and found this gem. Anyone who played Wizardy 101 will recognize the graphics, soft cartoony, colorful, yet easy on the eyes.

Also, a family friendly game for someone looking to play with their kids. Currently I have stepped out of the 'Heroes' part of the game and am fiddling with housing and crafting. Truly, I can't recommend this game enough for someone looking for a relaxing and fun mmo. Most beautiful part; the microtransactions store does NOT impare the gameplay for those who can't afford to use it. No roadblocks!

I would also like to note, I read reviews from players prior to trying it out. Some had me a bit concerned, however it looks like the issues addressed in this reviews have been resolved. Combat is far more user friendly, no longer locked in place... can run and cast etc. Definitely will not be a "niche" game, very much a mainstream relaxing mmo with a ton of achievements and goals to aim for. Lastly yes there is raiding in high end (I have yet to experience it) and from the death notices I have seen there does appear to be some pvp elements (arenas perhaps?). I am still fairly new to the game, hooked. Let's see if it keeps my love for it!

This game, while clearly made for kids, isn't that bad. It's easy until level 15, and it's somewhat similar to WoW. I'd reccomend this for a pickup and putdown game.

This game is a great MMO to play with your friends, and is still fun when you are alone. It is harder when you play alone, but I would still recommend it. I don't like the way the automatic combat system works, but most of the time you are using abilities, so I hardly ever notice. The game also has much gameplay with great crafting, wich can be tedious at times, but still is helpful. There are many places to go, and many, many quests to do, which increase with difficulty the higher level you are. This game also has TONS of gameplay, as long as you work on the quests for xp, which is nice so you don't have to grind. I have at least 35 hours of gameplay or something and I am only level 12 and not even CLOSE to finishing the game or quests, let alone explore all of the areas. There are also many bosses to track down and defeat, which also adds some purpose to the game. Everything eventually leads up to fighting a stone atmy with one of Mallok's apprentices or something, but I am nowhere near the end. I highly recommend this game, especially to play with friends.
