    Default Level 86 Expansion Teaser Part 3 - Deadly dangers of the Elder Woods!

    There have been some great questions about the difficulty of the Level 86 Expansion content.
    In a nutshell: the "Elder Woods" is quite a bit tougher than Elite Zodias but a lot easier than Arcane Catacombs.
    Soloing is relatively easy for full Kraken or with Kraken and/or Zaarus pieces that have great awakes + jewels.
    Soloing is possible for full Zaarus set users but the time to clear is a bit long given the monster hp / armor.
    Duos recommended for players with Legendary or mixed Legendary / Zaarus pieces with middling jewels.
    Full group recommended for those with mixed-level sets with absent or bad jewels... 'cause:


    The Elder Woods is not for the faint of heart!

    Our third (and final) Elder Woods Level 86 Expansion preview teaser will make her appearance in Windmoore this Thursday.
    Speak with Yuti about the perils of the Elder Woods environments and you will learn about a new terrible threat: the toxin!

    Beware the Toxins!

    Unlike the instantly-active traps and hazards found in Labyrinth and Arcane Catacombs, toxins build up slowly over time (if you remain exposed to their source).
    During build-up the toxin effect is minimal. Once it reaches full "affliction," though - you're in a lot of trouble and will need to act fast or perish!
    Acting in this case means using an anti-toxin that is suited for the type of affliction you have acquired.

    Trap-like but not 'Traps'
    After watching our most OP Legends storm the Arcane Catacombs we made adjustments to how the 'hazards' in Elder Woods would function.
    Instead of instantly smacking you with a debuff, we chose a new method that gives you time to act (or wait for the toxicity to dissipate).
    This makes the toxic hazards in Elder Woods feel trap-like without being actual "traps."
    It gives you a lot more control over how you deal with environmental threats.

    There are three types of 'toxins' currently known in Elder Woods. They are...

    Rot Slime

ID:	259388

    Found throughout the Hollow Grove and Ash Forest environments this affliction 'creeps up on you.'

ID:	259389

    Standing in the midst of a Rot Slime pool will gradually increase your toxicity... with minimal effect - until you are fully toxified.
    Once this happens you'll need to imbibe a (looted / crafted or purchased) "Purifaction" elixir to cure yourself.
    Ingredients for this are very easy to find.

    The Fatal Fungi are native to the Indigo Caverns and the Blue Abyss. Their effect applies much faster than Rot Slime.

    And likewise, the Fatal Fungi will be "fatal" if it reaches full affliction. You must clear it with the "Arcazole" remedy:

    Much faster with far more debilitating effects when accumulating than the others - and an even more lethal affliction!
    It can be alleviated with a special "Blackstar Atomizer" concoction:

    This one requires a bit more searching as the components are dropped from monsters in various Elder Woods maps.

    Expansions looking promising and filled with content! We can now enjoy the brand new Elder Woods maps + Zodias maps too without going back to somberholt/Fly lord orrick or waiting for events to entertain us.

    Good job STS, you broke the cycle of abuse that was choking the games life out of it. Nightmare (What even), Festerfang outside of elites (Deep marsh lacks good arcanes), Vardan valley (My god lol, 1 hour long brown map) were hurting your companies turnovers.

    I hope one day you guys legitimately shave down or completely move/tweak/slightly remove those past expansions features ect to something different and let Zodias & Elder Woods shine. Actual content to farm & enjoy that represents your products features & potential appropriately.

    Thank you STS for always delivering fresh content. Looking forward to this expansion. <3

    I hope chakram basic attack speed can be modified with haste else it'll be the same game, just proc and kill no point in basic attacks.

    Great stuff so far. But pls dont release it before the season ends, would make more sense when it's launched with the new season

    Could you put arcana with debuffs?
    Example: warrior weapon, spear of Zeus, when throwing the weapon it falls in a specific area for 7 seconds causing enormous damage, stunning and a chain reaction in a radius of 6 meters if an enemy passes 2 meters from another that is in the zone the debuff of his process (disadvantage, the warrior is left without a weapon for 2-3 seconds and enters defensive mode obtaining only 1 shield of 50% damage reduction) after those 3 seconds the warrior obtains his weapon with a buff of damage x3, life, armor. etc... for 4 seconds

    The rogue and mage new weapon looks good but the war new weap is a bit off, whipping is not really suit to warrior, it will be good if it is a spear or something that have ranged

    If we need to carry 3 different antitoxins on us to live through these maps, I hope this means we'll be able to buy more hotbar slots than 8 and that hotbar plat prices drop so that new and average players can afford them again.

    I know you already did alot of work
    But i want a dual wield weapon for warrior same as kratos chain axe in god of war .
    It will give mid range attack for tanks and will be better then whipping a single handed sword .
    And that weapon will work with all attack skills warriors currently have .
    Ty !
