Servers and Communication

Howdy all. Not too long ago I ran into an issue with our email account, hosted with GoDaddy, that made me prioritize finding a better solution that didn't put me at the mercy of a company like them again. We've had [email protected].com for over 10 years, included with the domain name initially...

Where do I post about myself?

It's a weird feeling to go through your own forums and not know where to talk about yourself. This seemed like the best place, way down at the bottom of the page. Wonder if anyone will see it? 2020 has been a real shit show, but it's ending on a strong note for me. Certainly didn't go to plan with t...

Arcanist and Diviners

Just a quick update here while we're waiting to resume item work. I've begun integrating the arcanist and diviner classes into the game. There was some debate over if they'd make it in for the relaunch or if we'd use them for a later game event centered around their unlocking. While the latter would...

Progress Report on Armor Update

Saphira is taking a two week break to relocate her lair, so I'm using this time to update everyone on this month's progress. I mentioned in the last update on weapons that armor would be next and we have indeed worked on updating armor, but we've also been working on items as a whole. A lot of final...

Game Email Address Issue

[email protected].com is currently down thanks to being unexpectedly shutdown by GoDaddy without notice. This email address has always been included with the domain but they decided to abruptly discontinue that service. The email was the only thing still holding us to Godaddy, so soon our domai...

Anything but routine server maintenance

These forums were offline for the past 24 hours due to some complications with a database upgrade because nothing ever goes according to plan. Data was never in any danger of being lost, but a few annoying steps along the way really risked my laptop being thrown out the window. Thankfully cooler hea...

Re: Weapons Update

Yes, tell your friend there will be one large class balancing act before launch to bring everything inline with the current damage changes to weapons and naturals. The last push up to launch will be all about updating classes and their skills.

Re: Weapons Update

Naturals, and to a lesser extent ranged weapons, do function differently from close combat. Bows are getting the same treatment as the other weapons as far as readjusting damage for each material type. Naturals have been undergoing small upticks in damage but will likely need one more adjustment aft...

Weapons Update

The biggest reason for taking the game offline is because of the massive amount of work needed to re-balance the game's items. We learned a lot about what not to do with items and came up with a game plan on how to make items meaningful and valuable again. We flooded the world with custom items beca...
