LEVELS, UNLIMITED
2012-Apr-07
Lord_Venan wrote:When we envisioned Book of Heroes, one of our goals was to be more of a light MMO than a pretty spreadsheet game. I think with the typical unbounded leveling of those games, it makes it pretty hard to present deeper content in terms of quests and world development. Also, keeping the game balanced is a lot more challenging for when we introduce features like PvP (which we plan on doing.) So we chose to go with the level cap with the expectation we'd be able to address the weak areas which you pointed out with regular content updates and new features.

I think the big problem right now is that

Mercs, Sabotage

Postby Bj_Knows » Mon May 20, 2013 2:54 pm

MERCS, SABOTAGE
PARTIALLY RESOLVED
2016-Jun-29
While Guild system is being overhauled (especially Favors), the penalty for switching guilds is removed, you lose no guild loyalty points for switching (-0% guild loyalty points. this may change at *any* time).
If you run out of merc slots, you can invite some players to temporarily join your guild. If you need to you can make room by temporarily kicking offline or innactive members after notifying them of the situation via BoH mail.

We recommend only opening up merc slots when absolutely necessary since mercs generally have a lower efficiency. You can also password protect your raid so only people you want can join your raid. https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?p=14933#p14933

Note: Unknown if v1.6.1 is a temporary fix (inreasing Raid Caps from 20, 40, 60 to 100 for all Raids), or Venan's last word on Merc Sabotage (Server Log shows a pattern of deliberate Raid sabotage). All Sabotage Mercs are Low RPP Mercs, but Low RPP Mercs are not all Sabatoge Mercs.

TRADE

It's something we'd like to do but it requires a large development cycle and design commitment. Not in the works for 1.6 but you never know for the future ;).

Drop rate, enchant materials

Postby Bj_Knows » Thu Jul 03, 2014 11:09 am

DROP RATE, ENCHANT MATERIALS
2014-Jul-03
Darkhorse wrote:I certainly appreciate how difficult and time consuming it is. That is partially the point. Enchantments were not meant to be gained overnight. Some aspects of character progression are supposed to be easily obtained and gained quickly (levels for example). Some aspects of character progression are supposed to take a moderate amount of time (new tier gear, some gems, low level enchants, some hero training). Some aspects are supposed to be a longer and slower form of improving characters for those that really want to put in the time and dedication (full gems, high level enchants, high levels of hero training).

If the game balance dictates that we increase drops, we will do so. These are things we review quite regularly.

INVENTORY SIZE, INCREASE

Bank GS or Transfer GS

Postby Bj_Knows » Wed Feb 11, 2015 10:40 am

BANK ALL GOLD SHIELDS or TRANSFER GOLD SHIELDS
2013-May-20
Darkhorse wrote:(edit: Bank all Gold Shields is) a good idea in theory, but unfortunately I don't think we will do this. The reason being it would be very easy to exploit the system with a large number of characters. https://www.venan.com/boh_forum/viewtopic.php?p=15870#p15870

Note: Discussion among players have pointed out that Guardian Valor Items can be used by a Level 1 character and Hero Tokens are most useful at Level 1, the Official Response to Gold Shields probably applies to all currency in the game.
