Sorry for the slight delay, as I've been busy with Big XII Championship preparation. Let the update log commence!

-The Planar Archivist has relocated his studies into the castle above the arena. These are now known as the Planar Archives.

Please read this important message regarding future Herocraft updates and the direction of the server. This is the final phase of the server and massive overhaul of systems will no longer be happening. You can also find our working to-do-list here.

After lots of meditation on several ideas and concepts, the major take-home points are.

SUPPORTER RELEASE DATE = NOV 2nd @ 9PM CST (http://hc.to/store, to purchase supporter)
PUBLIC RELEASE DATE = NOV 4rd


NO MORE RESETS/WIPES.
Maps will be cached, still active, but accessible through a set of portals labeled "Planar Archives" at spawn. EXPERIENCE will NOT be reset, Items will NOT be reset. Nothing resets from map to map, we only add more land to play, systems, mobs, skills, classes and other balancing factors to play with.
Whats this mean for players?

  • Your stuff won't be deleted. Your builds will be accessible for as long as we are online.
  • Leveling will be harder. Gaining "good" items may take more time.
  • Better system of play for classes over time, with dedicated developer(s) to fix issues.
  • Currency may be affected by inflation and counter measures will be implemented.
  • Experience is never lost through an update but the sliding scale of "levels" may be different, if a major update happens and we had to adjust exp scaling, you may go from level 40 to level 35, or from level 20 to 30, depending on the curve.
  • Item degrade faster.
  • EXP loss on PVE deaths.

COMBAT UPGRADE.
Melee hits (given and received) in combat will now drain stamina . Sprinting halts the recovery of stamina, and it will...

Kingdoms+
Coming in for Townships we have a new system that is publicly produced for on Spigot. It allows a different take on the political featureset of the server. We are not decomissioning Townships, it will be maintained for the other servers...
Greetings, Heroes!

Today I have a rather large update to push to the Townships/Live server. This is a Huge revamp of the Dungeons PVE system! Below I will list off as many of the balance changes and additions, as well as some of what's coming next! As for the future, I will list the upcoming changes first, since those are much shorter. I hope you guys enjoy these changes and I look forward to seeing more feedback from you in-game or through discord. This update is so large in-fact, I implore any Heroes in the Nexus to please use the /petition system to create bug reports for me, as I actively work to iron it out.

First up, upcoming changes. With the addition of my third iteration of our Dungeons project I have implemented a lot of new skills, but some of the old disguises are broken or missing textures, plus I feel that even with 35+ mob skills now, we could use a lot more animations and sounds with each faction and specific ideas I had in mind while doing the more mechanical fixes and changes.

Some of these include new creature-type skills, as well as themed faction skills, and even boss skills. You guys might want to expect to see some more mob types coming in the future, like Knights riding mounts, and "Anomalies". On another hand, we may also be trying to do some very meta-level skill related stuff, which could take some more work, but I've got plans to test the feasibility of this stuff before revealing further details! So stay tuned! :)

  • Lastly, here are the patch notes for Dungeons 3.0! (as I can get to them, and recall specifically.)
  • All mobs now have scalable drops, and stats.
  • All mob skills now scale with mob level
  • Mob Health has been adjusted across all tiers. Roughly speaking T1 Minions have around 500 Base Health, and T6 Bosses have around 5000 Base Health.
  • Mob Damage has been nerfed across all tiers. Several dozens of mobs had incorrect damage values.
  • Ranged mobs are now more interesting,...

The beta will run for roughly one to two weeks, during which we will fix bugs, prepare for the new release and gather feedback on the changes and new content being released

Dungeons:
/skill warp - should now properly take you to the Dungeon Nexus while in HeavensGate.

Arenas:
/arena join - is now in and should be working.
Kit's should be up to date.

A little message from me. I've been inactive recently but decided to spend some time helping improve things around the network, so expect to see more of me and I plan to get some more activity in on fixes!

But more importantly, I'm planning to fix any quality of life things that's within my power and expertise to do while maintaining a more active presence here.

I also may be hosting some events in my spare time, more on that later!

Thanks for playing! See you in-game!
