is how pruned the classes are a permanent change? I might've read over it or missed it somewhere if so I apologize, but it seems like a lot of classes are missing some very core abilities

I believe Kainzo wanted this to be the number of skills going forward. Classes will need to be redone and played with before everyone if comfortable.

Worst case I'm sure someone can come up with a solid argument for increasing skill numbers.

is it still retarded 1.9 pvp mechanics
Only technically. Anything crafted vanilla style will have the normal swing timers. However, we're working on getting weapons that will make weapons swing at 1.8 speed. I don't know if they're obtainable ATM, but they're made and being integrated.

changing the skills is very much in the air if you think some should be in and others shouldnt

Please list the core abilities out ... but right now the coding portion isnt complete, we're running out of time and the skill list will probably be reverted.

In game yesterday people were talking about how their classes were missing a bunch of skills, i'm not sure which ones in particular because I wasn't really paying attention to that but I know for sure Beguiler doesn't have piggify, pulse or clarity which are 3 very important skills for the class

EDIT: I'm not sure if I was blind or if it was just added, but piggify does seem to be on Beguiler. If it wasn't a few days ago I apologize as apparently I'm dumb

Greetings Heroes and Heroines!

12-18-2016 6PM = BETA
12-26-2016 6PM = RELEASE


On 12-18-2016 at 6PM, there will be the Herocraft Beta server released. Survival server will be shut down and the ip will be forwarding to this server.

The beta will run for roughly one week, during which we fix bugs, prepare for the release and get feedback for the new content being released.

Key changes to note:
  • Custom terrain has been generated via the EpicWorldGenerator - so its more random and fun!
  • LWC plugin has been removed in favor of PassLock - a combination lock plugin that is being tweaked for Herocraft. Players will be limited based on supporter tier as to how many locks/chests they can lock.
  • Townships now require upgrade costs from Conquest points rewards, "Essence of Battle" item/reward is now required to upgrade past Level 2.
  • Townships cost to create a new town reduced SEVERELY. (We want you to create towns with your friends whenever you want!)
  • Global Market has returned! It is now usable by everyone to purchase, only merchants can post items (at this time).
  • Dungeon structures have been temporarily removed in favor of overworld random encounters. At a later patch we will introduce a fully fleshed dungeon system, for now, enjoy the randomness of leveling!
  • Tier 2 classes have been decommissioned and their ultimate skills have been given to the Tier 1 classes.
  • Vote keys are now available at spawn to get a random and fun chance to win unique loot, cosmetics and prizes! Make sure to vote to get them!
  • Classes have been renamed, restructured and redefined. This will be fully fleshed out by the full release, Beta is still a little rocky on this.
  • Classes will now be able to use only one type of weapon for their class and it will be soul-bound. You can trade rare/unique drops but everyone will have their starter weapon, all the time.
  • All currency, all items, all generated land, all things will be wiped (MINUS Supporter Perks/Cosmetic wins that are intangible)
  • More to come...
Post Release Changes:
  • Weapon / Armor upgrade system similar to Dark Souls
  • Shielding health-like effect for 50% of the classes
  • Instanced dungeons
  • and more...

  • For every 1000c you make on this BETA you'll keep 100c of it on release. (This may take some work to get correct) -- Will confirm with /money top 100
  • First Mastery of CRAFTER -- 500c at the start
  • /pvp top (#1 slot - gets a FREE SUPPORTER TIER UPGRADE)
  • /pve top (#1 slot - gets a FREE SUPPORTER TIER UPGRADE)
  • /money top (#1 slot - gets a FREE SUPPORTER TIER UPGRADE)
Just wondering if we are going based on this or the one in the original first post. Does first to master a profession not receive any award?

I feel like this isn't something you should get just because you played the beta. These rewards should actually be given during the map. Feels quite lame knowing that someone will automatically have possibly over 4000c to start the map out with. Really unbalance and tbh already breaks the economy on the first day.

Where are you getting 4000 from?

Unless people are making 30,000+ coins on the beta, people will probably have around 2k.

Max town level is a decent feat, 100 chunks too if the item requirements for upgrades are still in.

Most I see people having is in the 2.5k range. And that's really only if they win one of the first to X things.

Alot of my friends will not be playing because they feel it isn't really a "fresh start". I don't know what to tell you.

I see that it's not, but it's not like we're giving them gear and items and regions. It's silly to not play simply because people will have some money.

It's a small amount of money anyone could make with a bit of time mining.

I understand where you're coming from, but you also have to understand it's only a very small portion of people getting these rewards. There won't be a lot they can do at the start of the map with the money, as everyone is level 1 and it's a fresh plate for everyone. If they could buy exp with money, ok I can see how that's a problem. But it was essentially people testing on the Beta, making sure stuff is working properly and getting a small compensation for it. Within a few days, this money won't be propelling these players ahead.

All in all, I feel as though you and your friends should give it a shot. I think that this map will be a fun one and although I completely see where your concerns are coming from, I think if you guys play for a bit you'll find it doesn't affect you as much as they might think it does. Just my opinion, but I think the more people the better.

I would post a screenshot of /pve top, but if I log in I will suffocate due to the herogate teleporting me in the ground like 2 days ago. My death would lead to me losing top pve elo lol. On another note I think I was the first to master a profession if we are not counting Kenneth_Chow hehe.
