Companions!

Companions

New items have been placed in some towns that allow the acquisition of companions.

Be careful. A PK could steal your roses, but not your expensive orchids because they are legendary.

There are 28 walking and 28 dancing companions currently available.

Chippie will go nuts to help you feed your pets.

Companion skills are as follows:
MOUNTED - You straddle your companion and encourage it to run in your special way. This reduces travel time by up to 50% at level 10. Effect enhanced when in PK mode (flashing red), reducing travel time by up to 60%

GOLDEN SCARAB - Your companion aids in searching for hidden gold. This provides up to a 10% chance at level 10 of turning a gold rush into a double gold rush.

MODEST DIVIDENDS - Your companion assists by gathering the dust from the corners every chest, increasing gold collected from non-rushes by up to 10% at level 10

SWORD SHEATH - Your companion gives you a place to put your pointy bits, decreasing the weight of all items in equipment slots by up to 50% at level 10

DUST MONGER - Your pet develops a keen sense of smell and uses it to distinguish the finest dusts. This provides up to a 25% chance at level 10 to increase the tier of any dust collected during resourcing.

WISE RUB - Your companion gives you a deep tissue scalp massage. This provides up to a 20% chance at level 10 to turn a double experience rush into a quad exp rush instead.

BLOODHOUND - Your companion gains the ability to pick up the most minute traces of scent. This aids in your ability to track, decreasing the time it takes by half at level 10.

ITEM FETCHING - Your companion seeks to please its master. It will bring to you any stack of items from your remote storage, taking from twenty minutes at level 1 to two minutes at level 10. Only companions who are capable of flying can learn this.

ITEM TRANSPORT - Your companion is your beast of burden. It will continually transport items from one storage location to another, taking as little as 1 minute per stack at level 10. Only companions who are capable of flying can learn this.

MASTER OF SHADOWS - Your companion aids you in being a slithery little sneaky snake, reducing the time it takes to log out after forcing PvP combat from thirty mins to twenty mins at level 10.




Dust Game

The dust collecting mini game has had the threshold for getting a +1 or +2 tier modifier based on moves lowered. Whereas before you needed 11 moves or less to get a +1 modifier, you now need 14. 10 moves will yield a +2 modifier. There are similar penalties for 17+ and 21+ moves. The modifier and move count is now displayed after successful collection for your viewing pleasure.


UI Improvements

Opening the Accomplishments and Companions window will let you know your total and the rank you have achieved due to it.

World coordinates are now shown on the paper map and in stored item descriptions.

Floating text for system messages will always appear if you cannot see chat so you don't miss important notifications.

Some combat colors have been changed to make them more distinguishable.

Fixed an issue with game controllers causing cursor flicker.

A /copyhotbar command has been added. Info in the FAQ.

An issue with the background not showing properly for auction has been fixed.

Fixed an issue with storage slots that made it difficult to tell if an item was in a storage slot you did not have access to due to skill limits.

About This Game

Modern MMOs are missing something. Somewhere along the way, game developers realized that appealing to the masses meant forsaking the heart and soul of classic RPGs - intricate character development - and focusing instead on graphics and simplicity of gameplay. Nodiatis is the antithesis to this modern paradigm.

A classical RPG in an MMO setting, Nodiatis appeals to gamers who appreciate retro gaming but still want the excitement of competitive play. While it has a story line, quests, and ...graphics, the true appeal is in the complex and strategic means of advancing your character(s). To start, there are over 26 classes from which to choose, each with its own unique active ability and passive bonuses. From there you must increase in strength mainly by carefully divvying your accumulated experiencing (in the form of trophies hacked from your foes) into any of the over 200 skills. Only with intelligent choices can you hope to become a powerful force. There are no pre-ordained paths or skill trees to guide the uninspired.

In addition to the solo and cooperative PvE progression that you would expect from an RPG, Nodiatis offers some very unique PvP. Very few have the stomach for our most controversial PvP - becoming a permanent player killer, allowing you to kill and steal items from anyone, but dying forever if you are eventually hunted down and killed yourself. For the others there is clan based world PvP and set duration arena tournaments, both allowing you to gain status and help your clan to unlock powerful runes that can help all members.

Nodiatis is already available for play via browser, however, we are porting to a new engine which will allow for vastly superior performance and a completely revamped interface.
