Midsummer's Eve Arrives!

Midsummer's Eve has arrived, and with it a magical portal to a realm filled with mischievous faeries!

Patch Notes 3.2.2
Improvements
  • The Vim shard vendors have moved back a little bit off the path to make room for the Midsummer Revelers, but they are still there under the trees!
  • Yorick's Gathering Hat: We increased the change of getting a mote of yorick while wearing this hat to 40% (instead of 15% without the hat).
  • Party UI can now be shrunk or hidden altogether.
  • Chat UI is now always on top of party UI and center bar as long as it's in focus.
  • COG Suppliers now have icons over their heads when they have supplies available.
  • Adjustments to hopefully decrease loading time and increase framerate.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed: There were some places you could get stuck in the Valley of Oblivion
  • Fixed an issue with giving Balfoure the Sumpty Cabernet. Future players will no longer be able to get bugged, but if a player is already bugged they will need to return to Gormlaith who will give them another bottle. Taking the new bottle back to Balfoure will fix the quest and let it proceed.
  • Fixed: Level locked all quests level 45 and above.
  • Fixed: Sequenced locked several of the higher Pyrrus quests to prevent exploits and broken quests.
  • Fixed: Set several Pyrrus quests to be main quests (for filtering in the quest journal)
  • Fixed: Spiders near the infested farmshack in Lower Ethos no longer aggro on sight.
  • Fixed: To get full XP credit for a zingara kill, a player must be at least 10 levels below the zingaras level. However a player any amount of levels above the zingara will still get full credit.
  • Fixed: Moved Celestria in Mounds so she won't sink into the ground. (This also fixes some missing NPC's elsewhere like Horace and Rhyming Rowena).
  • Fixed: "the quest journal for the big spiders are bigger than small gnomes quest says 'he will give me a special damage potion if i help him' but the reward is a clockwork harvester."
  • Hopefully fixed bug causing game to freeze for long periods of time and then disconnect while entering a zone between 60% and 80%.
  • Fixed bug causing bug report to sometimes fail to send.
  • Fixed: Making your character shorter or taller would affect run speed and jump height.
  • Fixed: I gathered my daily supplies. The amounts that I received were inconsistent with the amount that is stated in system messages.
    • Note: When opening an item from the inventory, system text will no longer tell you how many you got.
  • Fixed: Bug: "Confusion on the missing pickaxe quest.
  • Fixed: local teleporters (e.g. in Traven) sometimes show up as not found even if they have been found.
  • Removed the Mortimer Quest - it was too buggy.
  • Fixed bug causing village rank selector to almost immediately disappear.
  • Fixed: characters who have lost their house sometimes still seem as if they're in the village.

Known Problems
Here are some things we're planning to fix soon:
  • The mischevious faeries are a little too...well, mischevious. They will be made a bit easier next week.

“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.”

Про цю гру

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 provides almost everything that I would want from an MMO. However, there are a few downsides. I'll start with the bad first.

First off is the Vim System. It is kind of a negative thing for the game, but I can understand why it was put in. Vim is sort of like your crafting stamina, and it unlocks when one of your skills reaches 16. After you hit that point, everything you do when it comes to that specific skill will take up Vim points. Now, they do regenerate over time, but it's like every other game that has energy regeneration: few minutes at a time, and you only get one point back at a time. That wouldn't be so bad if you didn't need mass amounts for quests. The more you craft at a time, the more you use (e.g. one at a time for one Vim, or 50 for 150 Vim.) Gathering only takes one for each click, and sometimes you get three items instead of one, so that's not too bad. The biggest issue with this is that it greatly limits what you can do in the game each day. Sure, there are refills that you can buy (with in game tokens that you can earn, no real money required) and perks that cut down on how much is cut out, but if you don't have enough tokens or those perks yet, things can slow down pretty quickly. There are small "free" refills that you can get to drop, like 15 Vim cornucopians, but those aren't very common; there are also big refills, but that requires you to level the skill. If you're running low, and you're only around 10%, you're better off coming back later. The good side of the Vim system, though, is that it DOES slow you down. Without it, you would see level 1s taking up all of the high ranking gathering spots, and people who could actually craft with what's gathered there wouldn't be able to proceed because of the farmers.

Second off is the way your skills work. (I'm going to be giving you my point of view, since that's all I really have to work with here.) The good thing about the skill system here is that you have 6 set usable combat skills. The bad thing about the skill system is that you have 6 set usable combat skills. Now, on my priest, that's not too bad; I get a personal heal, a shield I can give to anyone, and the rest are damage spells. However, if I want to be able to heal SOMEONE ELSE, I need to find a piece of gear with that specific skill on it. If I want to keep that skill, I have to keep moving it from gear piece to gear piece, and believe me, that can get expensive pretty quickly, especially if you want to keep A LOT of skills that benefit you. If you have more skills that the free slots cover, you have to either abandon all hope for them, or use special stones to be able to tack as many on as that gear piece or weapon has space for. (You can also earn these in game, but if you're like me, and acquire a lot of pieces with great perks, youre going to run out of them VERY QUICKLY. They aren't exactly common for daily bonuses.) However, this does force you to think about which ones benefit you the most, so no one person can hoarde all of the skills and be insanely overpowered.

The third thing that I found to be a little irritating is crafting costs. Now, to craft things, you need to go to a station with all of the materials required (that you gather yourself) and craft whatever your skill allows. Now, a few friends of mine and I have sort of agreed that it's a "station rent and craft time" cost, but the higher up you get, the more expensive things get. That's a little annoying counting that I have to gather up all of these insane things to craft it in the first place. The sellback value isn't too great for them, either. The most recent thing I crafted cost me around 15 and a half silver, and it sold for a measly 24 copper. Pretty crappy, right? It feels pretty imbalanced. However, with how much hunting and questing most people do to kill time getting back Vim, I suppose most don't notice.

The fourth thing is the party/friend system. This one isn't necessarily a bad thing; it's just more of an annoyance. When adding someone to your friend list, you have to be standing right there with them. There's no "Add Buddy" button on the friend menu. You have to track them down and do it yourself. And, while we're talking about the friend list, let me tell you what you can do with your plethora of friends. You can see their name (good, that's needed), their level (also good, I suppose), and if they're online or not(very good; I mean, you can't whisper them if they're not online, right?). Aaaand..that's about it. You can't do anything with them. Can't unbuddy them, can't invite them to a party, nothing really helpful for people who are doing their own thing and then decide to be in a party. You have to do all of that stuff in person. (Well, in character, I guess. You don't have to walk all the way to your buddy's house to do things in game.) Oh, and the party invites work the same as a friend invite. Have to be able to click on them.

The last bad thing that I've noticed about this game is how you discover new areas. In most MMOs that provide a means of fast travel (which, by the way, isn't free in this game. It requires travel stones to go from one area to another.), you only have to enter the area to register that it's been discovered. The two exceptions that I've run into are WoW and this game. Like WoW, you have to activate a specific something to be able to travel there. In this case, there are travel pads that you have to run over. You get a free travel stone for discovering it for the first time, and bam. Area is now open for travel. However, that is also the drawback. If you're entering a new area that is just below, at, or just above your level, you had better be methodical about killing everything along the way. Most areas have the travel pad around the middle of the map if there isn't a town there. If you die before you run arcoss it? Better hope you have a resurrection stone. Don't have any left? You get to try again from the start. It's still labaled as "undiscovered". Better hope that things haven't started respawning yet.



Even through all of the bad, there are a lot of fantastic things that I love about this game.



First off, it's free. No pay-to-win here. The only thing that I might recommend paying for is extra storage if you like to hoarde everything. But, even that's not necessary. You get a total of three bags to start off with, a vault (with, I don't remember, 25 or 30 spaces?), and, if you decide to get the free house license, ANOTHER storage vault. So, unless you REALLY like to hoarde EVERYTHING you pick up, you don't need to buy anything with real money.

The second thing I love about this game is that there is no limit to what skills you can learn because everyone can learn everything. Want to focus soley on mining and smithing? That's cool. Want to max out just your plant lore? Go ahead. Want to be a master in all things ore, wood, clothing, food, and potions? No one's stopping you! The sky is the limit, as long as you have patience for all of the Vim you're going to be blowing through.

Other than that, it's really just your basic, run-of-the-mill MMORPG. There's things to fight, places to discover, quests to complete, and lots of fun to be had. If you're looking for a casual game to play alone or with your friends, this one is one that I recommend wholeheartedly. 9/10

With the new update to Villagers and Heroes: Reborn, a lot of the annoyances of this title have been removed. The much-hated VIM system has been kicked out, and a lot of new features have been added. If you played this game before, you should definitely retry this game.

If you never played this game before, then Villagers and Heroes is a fun MMORPG. Quests, Crafting, Levels, Housing, it's all in the game. There's a lot of maps to explore.

Villagers and Heroes: Reborn is made by a small development team, but they delivered an epic update.

I don't know why its taken me so long to write a review on this game, but here goes! (apologies in advance, i can get a bit wordy and off topic, lol)

Okay, so it is going to look like i've not played this game at all, but I have been playing since way before steam, so my account isn't attached to steam. However my actual play time is over 6,000 hrs via /playtime feature in the game.

Short history, I found this game a few years ago, instantly attracted to its charm. It is my first of this type, with the crafting mechanic etc in it. But I have tried several games since and nothing comes close to what i'm looking for in a game as much as this one does. I did leave (for about a year) because of some graphical/movement update that kind of took me out of the game because, well... I'm not good with changes apparently, lol.. There literally wasn't a day that went by that I didn't wish that I was playing it again, but because the new movement etc was so foriegn to me, and gave me a headache.. I just didn't try. It took an entire year to make myself try and get used to it, and wow am I so glad I am back.

The game has improved drastically (from what was already a pretty great game). The new starter area that has been rolled out is impressive, the story line very much intrigues me. But it isn't all about the story line. Sure the quests are great, combat is pretty fun (nothing overly complicated but not too simple either), crafting has certainly changed since I first started playing (and changed for the better I might add.. even tho i had no idea it could be improved!)

You could call me a fan boy (or girl would be more accurate) and you'd be right, but with great reason. This game has such charm to it, the community is great, helpful, and only on rare occassions will you run into 'trolls', etc. I think this is in HUGE part to the No PVP... Just because personally, I feel like it can sometimes bring out the worst in even the nicest of people.

To sum it up, this game is really great... So great i find myself skipping work sometimes just because I want a day to relax and play, lol
