    Default August Legends Producer Letter: Planar Arena, Tombs and More


    Hello everyone!

    I want to update you with what the Arcane Legends Development Team is up to. While you’ve been playing Ursoth’s Assault, the Dev Team has been very busy making more new stuff for you!

    Planar Arena and Planar Tombs:
    The next free endgame content is getting ready for you. It will be a two part release. First up is a refresh to the Shuyal Gladiator Arena. After that, a new adventure area will follow: the Planar Tombs.

    Planar Arena:

    The mysterious gladiator boss brawl is getting a facelift. The contest promoters are moving to an incredible, out of this world, destination. A new fearsome boss is also joining the ranks. To entice willing victims, uhh, participants, the promoters have all new Legendary Armor up for grabs. Will you have what it takes to find victory in the Planar Arena?

    Arena construction continues, but should be ready to rumble soon.

    You will get the chance to check out the Planar Arena soon on our new Test Server. Read on to learn more.

    Following the demise of Inan’hesh, the Nott are working to find untapped ancient power sources to use in restoring Shuyal from the ravages of the Devourer

    The Planar Tombs adventure will follow some weeks after the Planar Arena is live. As part of your adventure, you will have the possibility of uncovering some of the most coveted Legendary Weapons yet!

    This planar content will also feature a quest line that leads to a Mystical Pendant like none ever seen before!



    Planar Testing:
    We recently used a public test server to test the next big update, titled Darium, coming soon to Battle Command! We will be doing the same thing for the above Planar content. We will have specific play test times where you can download the test app, try out the new stuff and then give us your feedback.

    We will be posting more about how you can get involved with testing in the near future.



    Undead Whelp Pet:
    We know that we have been doing a lot of Arcane Pets recently. We are committed to making them all balance out. We really appreciate the feedback you gave us regarding this latest pet. We have further refinements to Singe and Shady and Surge coming in the future to better balance out Arcane Pets.



    Ankhs for Revive and Revenge:
    We will also be introducing a new item: Ankhs.

    Ankhs will allow you to Revive or Revenge instead of using Platinum. Kits of 25 Ankhs will be available for purchase for Platinum and will be tradeable. This will allow anyone to obtain Ankhs for gold via the Consignment Shop or by trading with others.

    But wait, there is more!
    Shark week is coming soon to the Discovery Channel ... and Arcane Legends too!

    Edit: I also wanted to add that the designers are working on revising the Elondrian Bulwark. Look for the revised version on the test server when the arena stuffs goes out.


    Thanks, as always, for being part of the Spacetime Gamer Community! Reply below with your comments. I look forward to reading them.

    I will see you in Arlor!

    Time is more valuable than gold. You can get more gold, but you cannot get more time.

    STS, you are redeemed! I actually can't wait for this!

    If Anks are going to be the cost of energy kits, I don't mind paying 10k to come back from the dead with a vengence XD 2k if I'm cheap XD

    15seconds invulnerable is a good indication of how tough these new bosses will be... my bow is ready... Kalizza... get ready to show me how to use it xD

    Will the Shuyal arena still be open for those who haven't completed the achievements related to the bosses there once the new content is released?
    If I read it right, the bosses will remain the same with one additional boss, and therefore still grant achievements. Can anyone confirm?

    Those who say it cannot be done should not stop those who are doing it.

    I would love to contribute to the testing on the Darium server!

    Second, I hope that chests DO NOT drop in the arena - this killed the value of EGP's (and everything else) last season, and, not for nothing, EGD's are kind of hard to come by, and I'd rather it stay that way. Please add unique drops that are only farmed in the Arena. That way, the minuscule value of Tindirin loot is retained, yet Arena farmers can still get something valuable to sell.

    I love that you have incorporated Ankh for revive purposes! It gives free players a chance to keep up in some really challenging maps (like Jagged Trail). This is a win for everyone!

    While I love the new tombs map, I am hoping that it is super difficult and the new drops are worth the time/pots/plat/etc. Unfortunately, I don't see anything here that helps remedy the decreased interest (and value) of elite farming.

    Finally, I'm assuming Shark Week means Hammer Jaw's drop rate will be increased, since Ripmaw was recently made available for platinum purchase.

    Here's the shark week from last year. I hope its not similar or the same.

    Default 2013-08-08 Content Update (127324)
    Shark week! Ripmaw is available in the store through the weekend!
    Shark week! Hammerjaw has an increased drop rate through the weekend!
    Shark week! For a limited time, the shark king himself, Captain Bloodhammer, has double drop chance on Elite Gold chests, both in the Shuyal Dimensional Arena and Skull Cove.
    Crates of the Grand Watch have now been updated with loot from the upcoming Realm of Shadows expansion!

    Ripmaw is bad compared to current pets.
    Hammerjaw with increased drop chance. Wouldn't that technically lower your chance at the better stuff?
    Bloodhammer dropping better chests......maybe.....
