Dungeon In's are out of Dungeons
(Get it? It's a pun!)
We've made a change, and I know that it can be scary sometimes, but stick with me. Today we overhauled how loot spawns in dungeons. For a while now, some dungeons which are. well, easier then others, have been used to basically instantly gear.
So, let me explain how dungeon loot is structured now.
The way this new system works, is that the loot is split into three types: Supply, Health, and Military, which are split into three tiers(1,2,3). You may even see some new items in one or two of these!
Each contains specific items according to their types, for example:
- Supply chests contain large amounts of food.
- Health chests contain healing potions.
- Military chests contain gear and weapons.
This will provide a better balance then our current system, and hopefully, more satisfactory results at the end of dungeons. There will definitely be some fine-tuning as we transition to using this loot system, so I ask you all to work with us. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and helps us make these decisions.
Elite Dungeon loot rooms are unaffected, and will still spawn dungeon-outs, for the time being.
As a note, The spire of Pluvia now spawns Depth Strider Pants! Now you can have a full set of Spire Gear!
This is a major change, but it is not our last. We have a couple more loot changes to make during the coming weeks, and a few more build changes. We're currently setting our sights on one spawn town that starts with a G. You'll have to buy more vowels to figure it out, I guess....
Anyway, we're well on the road to Origins Part 2, and you will definitely start seeing new things pop up around the world, and more information and media about Part 2, soon.
Again, I'd love to hear some feedback on this new dungeon loot system, and any other suggestions you may have! The new dungeon loot will go active at 8PM EST, on the 15th of July.
Shotbow is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Craftathon!
