    Greetings!
    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.
    We've done this so we can better tailor the loot you receive to the dungeon it comes from. So, as an example, if the dungeon contains a lot of parkour, you can expect to see a lot of Supply chests, whereas a combat dungeon will have more military chests.

    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!

    Coming Up
    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.

    I like how you guys were worried about people gearing at dungeons with no effort, but did absolutely nothing about that for almost a year when krubera, necro, and wizard tower were being abused...

    they couldn't change anything because origins was already on the dev server so they couldn't roll anything without origins going out prematurely

    I certainly hope they'll address non-dungeon gearing after this change. It was hard enough to obtain full iron/decent inventory when we could use dungeons to hear and while I don't want to continue with the same system, we need to tweak the drop rates for things. If you've got a busy schedule (like most people), it's hard enough to get gear for an Elite Dungeon by going through an easier dungeon. Now we're going to be going back to farming northern towns for thirty minutes at a time.

    Jesus Christ, I wasn't even aware that people used smaller dungeons to gear up. That sounds like madness to me.

    I like this change, i was just complaining to my old friends because they gear up do get ' god inventories ' at dungeons, now people will actually stand a chance fighting a iron in chain.

    Oh and y'all don't forget about Giants. Today with the help of Mosh, Marine, and Senoc we finished up building a few neat new places and prepared the map for the new giant spawns. We're waiting on some tweaks to the code and then we'll be ready to roll. Less giants everywhere, more giants where you need them!

    This update is very sensible but still idiotic. I do a complicated dungeon called wizards tower only to find shears and band-aids at the end. What is this non-sense. You call that dungeon finishing loot? Thanks for yet again trolling me shotbow.

    Suggestion: Please tone down the chances of spawning supply and health chests and make it a better mix. I understand that dungeons like Flooded Tunnels are mainly parkour based, but after doing it that is a lot of rather tricky parkour for just some food and health pots. At least mix some military chests in with all of it so it's more balanced.
