The boring update logs that the GM writes to show that he is actually working. Also the place where the GM will announce stuff such as events.

[CL] 2019.03.11 - Temple of the Demon God

Post by GM.nubs » 7 months ago

Dev Rants Logs

So, this week I spent time on to add another instance; Temple of the Demon God. This seems like a very difficult instance. Let see if anyone could complete it. Just to note, ToDG requires storyline quest to start, https://irowiki.org/wiki/Dimensional_Travel.

New Feature
  • Added Temple of the Demon God Instance.
  • Added #1449 | Gelerdria[3] to Leablem. It is SS Class requiring #1414 | Gelerdria[0], 1M Zeny and #25239 | New Advanced Lubricant x 1 per try. 10% chance of success. #28506 | Storm Stone is still unreleased as of now.
  • Increase official headgear style limit (from 27) to 31.
  • Added Repairman to Ayothaya.
  • Added #12790 | Name Change Coupon in the cash shop for 10 CP. After using the item, you can change your name in the character selection window (only on the character that uses the item).

Balacing/Improvements
  • [PvP/WoE] We found that the reinforcement warp point (via flag) is too close. This made the defending party to have too much of an advantage. This is fine in a large populated server. But in a small population, this made the attacking guild have problem attacking as they keep being "attack" by the defenders using the flag teleport. While they have to walk from the enterance. Thus, it is decided to move the warp point earlier.
    From 197,36

    To 62,81

  • Item Balance:
    • #15147 | Abusive Robe
      • The nerf script are now optimized to only affect during PvP and WoE.
      • Bonus damage to monster races (Demi-human, Demon, Undead) increased back to 4% per refine level.
      • [Added] Bonus damage to player are now 1% per refine level.
      • [PvP/WoE] Refine combo bonus from with #2519 | Morrigane's Manteau and #2524 | Valkyrie Manteau now reduced back to per 1 (from 2) refine level. This combo bonus is still requires 2 refine level in PvP and WoE environment.
      • [Added] Ignore DEF combo bonus for player by 5%.
    • #5360 | Hyuke's Black Cat Ears
      • Bonus to ignore magical defense increased to 100%. However, during the buff duration, physical defense are reduced by 50%.
      • Buff duration increased to 10 seconds, but no change to the proc-rate.
  • [PvP/WoE] Reflect Damage:
    • Reflect damage are now reduced to a certain percentage (hidden for now). The ammount reduced will be announce after the "balance" is reached. This affects every items and skills that reflect damage but only during WoE/PvP.
  • Shadow Chaser's Man Hole:
    • Aftercast delay is increased by 10 seconds. However, the skill duration (the blue trap itself) is also increased by 10 seconds per level. No change on the debuff (trapped) duration.
  • [WoE] Emperium health is reduced (from 700) to 450. Because population to small, Emperium rarely gets damaged. When they do, often times only for a bit.
  • Removed some items from #22537 | Prize of Hero:
    • #522 | Fruit of Mastela
    • #547 | White Slim Potion
    • #607 | Yggdrasilberry
    • #608 | Yggdrasil Seed
    • #678 | Poison Bottle
  • Added Healer and Warper NPC to Fire Basin. Warper also have a warp to the Fire Basin (Town category).
  • Added #6026 | Written Oath Of Marriage (Marriage Covenant) to potential drop from #8501 | Milky Special Gift Box.



Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug with abusive robe combo script. The old effect was stacking ontop of the new effect making it stronger than intended. e.g combo with Valkrie Manteau +30% MaxHP (old) + 20% MaxHP (new) = +50% MaxHP bonus.
  • [HotFix] 2019.03.08 Re-enable Transfer Gate to Abyss Castle Dungeon.



Other Notes
  • Star Gladiator's (and Star Emperor) Union of the Sun, Moon and Star skill. The skill is said cannot be increased. This is a bug that I can't fix but there is a way around it. To raise the skill, make sure your Knowledge (or Carrier) of the Sun, Moon and Star skill is already at level 9. Then minimize the skill window (the minus button on the top bar of the skill window). The Union Skill should be upgrade-able there.
  • Follow up to Homunculus auto-attack. Apparently, only Vanilmirth and Filir are able to auto attack. Other homun just sit there.
  • Regarding Abusive Robe. The script actually doesn't have the ignore DEF Player race (see this). Normally, most item with "demi-human" in their description, will also add "RC_Player" (see this). Basically, this week is a buff to pierce def to player.

Clarification on reflect damage

The default reflect is true damage and does not get reduced by anything; be it racial, size, elemental reduction. It is also not reduced by PvP/WoE reduction. Hence, when you hit for 10k damage in a PvP/WoE environment, reflected damage you hit is actually more (e.g 20k). The only thing that affects reflect damage is its the maximum damage potential. The max damage potential comes from 2 parts; the MaxHP of the user, and the skill/item itself (e.g Reflect Shield at 40%, Valkyrie Manteau at 25%, Cursed Mad Bunny at 10% stackable to 75%).
The RG could stack reflect damage as high as possible (get higher MaxHP, and get items that increase reflect). They could also reduce damages they receive through plethora of options (e.g Thara Frog, Khalitzburg Knight, Feather Beret, Siege Set, etc). However, the same is not true for GX or Shura. They can't "melee" RG. Yes, GX and Shura could reduce their damage but will that be enough to kill any RG? Sure GX is still too strong now, but like I said many times before I set path on to balancing the WoE, balancing WoE is very difficult and takes a long time. Too many changes can't be made in a single patch. One or two changes are done until a certain level of goal is received.
