    This thread will now include developmental changes as well, to help to have a unified place to look for updates.
  3. cyclone_43 Silver

    How was frostbain buffed? The town of the dungeon?
  4. Marine_PvP Jr. Developer

    It's Frostine Valley Acres that has been buffed, not Frostbain. It had only 1 tool chest so we've added more chests there and might add more in the future.
  5. Mychon Obsidian

    The game is fixed
  6. DocCodeSharp Retired Staff


    There is more to be done. This is just the start :)
  7. LegendaryAlex Film Crew

    Now we just have to see it. :wink:
  8. shrauger Regular Member

    Oh thank god for the lore blocks, I was getting bored.
  9. Mychon Obsidian

    this fix was the only one I needed
  10. Mangraz Platinum

    Just gotten back into the game after years of absence, due to a friend wanting to "play some good ol' Minecraft". Great to see development is still going on despite low player counts.:)
  11. FPSHater Obsidian

    Why my MEME post got deleted wtf toxic af my ninja
    Meme_MC, up44 and ACrispyTortilla like this.
  12. FadingGeneral Platinum

    Could you tell us the reason behind this change?
    Talef and ArsMagia like this.
  13. DocCodeSharp Retired Staff

    I removed the giant spawn due to it being to easy to farm the giant ( one of the bosses) the location was bad for this spawn. You could hide in the building, run the the woods and hide behind the tree and fight it with no fear of being kicked, and fight with the water behind you with no fall damage with the kick or jump.

    I will be working with halo to build a better location that will fit the boss and allow better PvP in the West.

    Alright, well I'd suggest readding the Giant's spawn to Forest, and adding potion chests to either The shire or Giants farm that don't require a button. I've made a map (map) highlighting all the potion chests that aren't (For the most part) in southern locations. When you look at it you can see there's a big portion on the western side of the map that has no potion chests that don't require a button. A couple pot_uncommons would definitely help out PvP in the area if you're not to kill PvP in the west.
  15. Talef Gold

    what are zombie bows for?
  16. Goliac Silver

    You put it in your alt and it stays there for decades.
  17. Meifot Silver

    Removing west giant spawn again. :/ Can we go back to forest?
  18. AetheralWraith Platinum

    "Lmao lets get rid of west giant spawns AGAIN and make it so you can only get them in the canyons xd" -Doc
  19. Talef Gold

    They didn't say this publicly for some reason, but they are adding the giant spawn in the west somewhere it wont be easily exploited (due to water and trees). They are also going to buff legendaries soon I'm pretty sure so hopefully zombie bow will be maybe worth doing Devil's Respite ever.
  20. mackwell Gold

    Zombie Bow was one of the only good legendary's, now its kinda crap.
