Server Maintenance - August 14, 2014

Postby CheMClarc » Wed Aug 13, 2014 5:08 pm

Heroes!

There will be a server maintenance period at 11 am EDT/ 3pm GMT on 8/14/2014.

We anticipate a down time of approximately one hour to deploy an update.

This patch will bring the Were-chef event to Glenfort and balance changes to raids and the public raids that we introduced in our last patch. Please note that the Were-chef event will not start until 2pm EDT/6pm GM on 8/14/14.

Raids

  • Lowered might requirements for all raids except those that reward Champion’s Valor (final tier).
  • The enemy levels in Wrath of the Overseer, Risen from the Depths, Attack at Dawn, and Dark Lord Helion have been reduced to match the might requirements more appropriately.
  • The enemy levels in Crypt of Corruption have been increased to match the might requirements more appropriately.
  • Where applicable, the guild objectives to unlock each raid have been adjusted to require the preceding raid to be defeated only one time (down from 5 or 10).
  • In an effort to improve the chance of success of Public Raids, the number of Public Raids that may be open at the same time in each reward tier will be limited.
    • Gobblin' Goblins, The Plaguerider, and Lockbolt's Reign raids will be automatically spawned if there are no open raids of that type. (Squire's Valor)
    • Risen from the Depths and Crypt of Corruption raids will be automatically spawned if there are no open raids of that type. (Solider’s Valor)
    • Cursed Keep raid will be automatically spawned if there are no open raids of that type. (Knight’s Valor)
    • Horde of the Goblin King raid will be automatically spawned if there are no open raids of that type. (Captain’s Valor)
  • Raids not named above will no longer be spawned as Public Raids.

No more KFS? I guess that's good for Barooen. Otherwise, he would get stuck with 100 rpp in a public raid for hours because no one else would come to push it on through. Venan saves the day once again!

How long before the screen shake is turned off ? Yes it was mentioned it would be addressed in a 2.2 update , How long and how many minor issues be tampered with before the screen shake is optional ? 2- 7 more trivial updates ?

I personally don't think this was a good choice for this tier. The lack of essence makes this raid of very limited use.

Wouldn't it be better to guarantee Bronze valor for the public raids? Then people would probably dare to put in energy and they might even close with better result at times. That would perhaps be a good place to make new contacts and alliances too. As of now there's a bazillion small guilds closing bronze or throwing failed raids. That's just plain boring and noone's gain.

Finally an event! I almost thought those were gone :) :) :)
