Hail Dark Legends!
Iím Carapace and Iím heading up new content and design for Dark Legends. Iím already toiling away on some cool stuff for you guys Ė including the expansion which youíll be hearing more from Samhayne about over the next couple weeks, but there are some more details below!
We just had a lot of fun with the Ecliptic Moon Gem pack, and around the corner we have some pretty large changes and additions coming. We have an increase in the level cap to 26 (for the hardcore) with two new campaigns. These will include more 2H items as loot in addition to a couple new mob types and bosses! Around the same time weíre going to be bringing in some large changes to our map and energy systems. Weíve been reading the forums, listening to general feedback, ideas, suggestions and come up with what we feel is a much better experience for everyone. So large in fact that itís worth taking a moment to discuss!
First, 3D missions will no longer cost energy. This makes them free to play infinitely! Campaign maps will be condensed down to their playable 3D missions to reduce clutter, with the cut-scene actions replaced by a new ďContactsĒ system. The Contacts are where your energy will be going now, and they unlock per campaign as you progress through the 3D missions. Contacts are given tasks, special to each contact, which allow you to choose how long it takes for them to complete. These contacts upon completion will also yield experience and gold rewards like actions do now, scaled based on the length of time and yield additional rewards for those willing to wait! The big thing here is that we are giving you guys the power to decide how much you want to play without gating the 3D experience with energy, but still providing notable benefits for its usage.
Additionally weíre working on a ďMinionĒ system. As a brief overview the idea here is that you are rewarded for returning day after day, benefitting you with a super awesome reward every 5th day! Miss a day or two however, and the rewards he has for you might have been taken by another vampire. More details on this one later. Just a peek for the moment!
On a final note we are also working on a goal system, which should help to streamline new user and veteran users experience as they play through the content to make sure they take advantage of all that Dark Legends has to offer.
Thatís enough about the exciting stuff coming your way, so hereís a little bit about me.
I play the guitar and write a lot of music in my spare time, but Iím a pretty avid gamer as well. I watch way more movies and shows than I should, with a lot of the SCI-FI and horror movies turning up in my media player again and again. Also a pretty big anime fan, always on the prowl for a new favorite to find its way into my hands.
Iíll see you guys in the District,
I know you guys likely have questions, put them in this thread and Iíll answer when I have a few moments to answer. You guys rock!
