  1. The area in which monsters attack has been gradually reduced over the years (and is now down to a single cell around each monster), but the monster attack mechanic has not changed since the game first came out. Update 2.45 will introduce a new system for managing monster aggression which we hope will be less frustrating and easier to understand. Our primary goal: Making exploration exciting Monster attacks in DOFUS are generally seen as a useless constraint. While there may be valid criticisms of the way in which it is currently applied, we still believe that a good monster aggression system is an interesting gameplay mechanic. DOFUS presents an open world in which characters can move about freely without strict constraints (e.g. there are very few level restrictions on character access to various areas). However, it is difficult to make exploration exciting when characters can move through any area right from the beginning of the game. We like the idea that certain areas may be dangerous for beginning characters, that venturing into those areas represents a significant risk, and that by leveling up, characters can gradually become powerful enough to explore ever more dangerous areas. Having areas that are dangerous for low- to mid-level characters is a good way to make discovering the different areas of the game a more gradual process. It also allows us to ensure that not just any character (unless they are willing to accept a higher level of difficulty) can have access to quests or resources that are primarily intended for higher-level characters. Whenever possible, we want to avoid imposing strict constraints on access to different areas based on character level; we prefer to make virtually all areas accessible to all characters, as long as they are willing to face the associated risks. How the new system works We wanted to make the attack system more dynamic. From now on, standing still will put characters in danger, and running will be the best way to avoid aggressive monsters. Here's how monster attacks will work in the new system: Detection: Monsters have a field of vision (between 2 and 4 cells; these parameters may continue to change). When a character enters this field of vision, an attack may occur. Evaluation: By default, virtually all monsters in the game will be able to attack characters if the difference between the monster's level and the character's level is sufficiently large. If this difference is greater than 50 levels, the monster will attempt to attack the character (e.g. a monster at level 140 will attempt to attack a character at level 80). The number of levels that triggers an attack may change based on the results of our tests and your feedback. Attempted attack: If the target evaluation condition is met, and if the character is within the monster's field of vision (i.e. within a few cells of it) for more than 3 seconds, then a battle will start. As soon as a monster detects a potential target that it might choose to attack, a small symbol will appear above it to warn players that it's time to get out of there! The field of vision for attack purposes is determined by the leader of a group of monsters. A character who keeps moving should therefore be able to easily avoid monster attacks. We intend to take full advantage of this more flexible new system to make certain areas of the game dangerous for characters who aren't attentive enough, or who aren't supposed to be there in the first place (too big a difference between the monsters' level and that of the characters). This system resolves the problems that players sometimes encountered in tunnels and narrow areas: it will no longer be necessary to wait for monsters to move, as long as you don't stay in one place on the map for too long if the monsters there are inclined to attack your character. When a group of monsters is potentially about to attack your character, a specific symbol will appear when moving the cursor over that group of monsters. Highly aggressive monsters Certain monsters will always be aggressive (such as Wabbits or Bworks), regardless of the character's level. This mode will be used in areas where we want exploration to be more difficult and dangerous. Most monsters will only be aggressive towards characters whose level is far too low for the given area. This approach lets us discourage exploration (without banning it outright) in areas that are not appropriate for the character's strength and abilities. With the current parameters (with the rule that triggers attacks when there is a 50-level difference between monster and character), characters at level 150 or above will no longer be attacked by the majority of the classic monsters. Monster movement Monsters' behavior outside of combat will also be modified: monsters will persistently (but slowly) try to approach characters walking through their part of the map. It will therefore be important not to stop in one place for too long on a map that has monsters that might attack your character. The frequency of monsters' movement outside of combat has not changed. Future changes The parameters described in this article may change in the course of the tests you'll be running in the beta phase for Update 2.45. We welcome your feedback on your experience with the new system. Questions Can harvests be interrupted? Harvests can be interrupted by monster attacks. You will have to be careful when sending a low-level character to gather resources in significantly higher-level areas. However, the delay between detection by a monster and the start of an attack should be long enough for attentive harvesters to avoid most attacks. We allow aggressive monsters to interrupt harvests in order to prevent characters (using the action queue) from harvesting freely on maps that have monsters which are supposed to attack them. Why aren't there any consumables or Achievements to make characters immune to monster attacks? We believe that attacks by aggressive monsters can be a useful mechanic for making exploration more exciting. We don't want certain characters to be able to bypass this mechanic completely in areas where we want it to apply consistently. We do not rule out the possibility of eventually letting characters use Achievements or consumables to protect themselves from attacks, but we do not want to use these as generic mechanisms. How do monsters decide which characters to attack? A monster may detect multiple characters to attack in its field of vision. The first character it attacks will then be the first one it noticed; in case of a tie, it will attack the lowest-level character. Let's face it… these monsters are just not nice :]
  2. The Forgotten Towers The war against the army of the brotherhood is declared! Your hero is a seasoned veteran? In this case, you will have a chance to survive the legions of Trépamorts... To penetrate the territories of the undead soldiers, you will need effective protection. Go to the master of your temple to enter the Domain of the Gods, where you will learn what is expected of you. Two new zones and dungeons (for characters of level 190 and above) are accessible, they shelter the undead monsters of the Forgotten Brotherhood. 4 sets and 12 items can be made from resources from these new areas. Spell variants 378 new spells are added for all classes (21 new spells per class). These spells are obtained between levels 101 and 200. From level 101 players can choose between a spell and its variant. This choice can be changed at any time outside the fighting. Spells obtained between levels 1 and 100 now have only 3 levels and these evolve automatically without the need to invest spell points. Spell points learned via scrolls are automatically converted to Kolossokens (placed in the character inventory). Each class now has access to all 4 elements. Character characteristics will be reset when the 2.45 update is released. We have evolved the spell system to simplify it, make it more accessible (removal of the spell points to invest) and to increase the possibilities offered to the players to allow them via a mechanism of choice, to increase in a situational way their versatility. Omega Levels These levels are infinite and can earn cosmetic bonuses (Ornaments and Auras) and utilities (Pods, Market and Merchant slots). The Omega level of the characters is visible on their ornament (an option allows to disable this display) and in the majority of interfaces that showed Experience accumulated after level 200 will be retroactively transferred to the new experience level for Omega levels. Monster Aggression System Monsters now have a 3-cell zone of vision, if a character stays more than 3 seconds in this zone of vision and the monster is aggressive, a fight will be launched. An icon is displayed above the monsters to indicate that they will soon start a fight if the character remains in their area of vision. Aggressive monsters are gradually getting closer to the characters on the map. Aggressive monsters in version 2.44 are aggressive towards all characters. Non-aggressive monsters in version 2.44 are now aggressive towards characters whose level is at least 50 levels lower than monsters. The characters who interact with the NPCs are immune to the attacks of the monsters. Movement of characters is now more reactive on maps with aggressive monsters. We have modified the monster aggression system to significantly facilitate movement in areas with aggressive monsters and to enhance the exploration mechanics of the game by making certain areas dangerous when the level of monsters is considerably higher than that of the characters. Tactical mode The graphical appearance of the tactical mode is improved. The colors and set elements used now adapt to the appearance of the area. An option allows you to use only the default tactical mode (whose appearance is also improved). Self-Powered Mount A new monetized feature (available soon in the shop) allows to assign a self-control ability to a mount (Dragoturkey and Seemyool). This ability makes it possible to define from the world map or the minimap a destination for the mount to travel to. The mount will then automatically go through each map. This feature is not available in areas where navigation is intentionally complex (in labyrinths for example). Quests The series of quests of the Brotherhood comes to an end... The adventurers can come back to talk to Jalcas in the Ouginak Temple and be entrusted with a new mission that will take them to the city of Srambad. The prerequisite for the last quests is slightly increased compared to the rest of the series. The characters having completed the quests Happiness is in the spray and It is time to die may have met again Rainikrone and Hyrkul using the Orbalantyr of Mériana. Quest Shipwreck Island: Captain Kradoc now requests a Nodkoko Slice rather than a Kokoko Nut to validate the quest's fourth objective. Quests Do not let your sons trail: the compasses on the quest for the location of Cabotine's grave are corrected to indicate the right place. Quest A Breach to Bonta: Requisitioned Pickaxe is now linked to the character. The adventurers who do the quest in progress and who are washed from the pickaxe can be recovered in the Bonta miners' workshop. Quest Must Shine: The first objective of the quest is changed, it is already validated when the wax of glige is made in slavery of the patinated still, and no more by returning to Kerubim. The making of wax becomes indispensable for the progress of the quest. Quest Distribution of zizanesque pains: the recovery of celestial pain is not possible if the first objective is in progress. Talking to NPC Edgar Davou, the characters can get rid of Dark Breads useless tickets. Quest Flight ... Age? : the demonic rose scissors donated by the florist Seria are now indestructible and unrepeatable. Cut demon roses can no longer be needed for the quest. Seria gets scissors and cut roses (without giving kamas in return). Last Contact quests, The voice of the dead and Burin's Bane: The rewards in kamas obtained at the end of these quests depending on the level of the character. Quest Lack of Skins: The amount of goblin seed requested by Bworkepik is decreased. It is now necessary to report 3 skins to the NPC to validate the objective of the quest. Lack of Mold Quest: The quantity of goblins and a bone of Trooll requested by Bworknroll are diminuted (they pass through 10 to 5). Quest A Trooll Family Future: The main goal now is to defeat a Tamed Trooll. The level of the quest is decreased (from 100 to 80). Rewards earned are linked accordingly. Quest Do not Shoot the Messenger: Quest monsters Gerard Barbak and Lolito are less resilient and cause less battle damage; Gerard invokes his Bouledogre less often. Quest The Beautiful Hermit: The amount of Wild Sunflower Oil and the number of small White Chachas requested by Monabella are decreased. The quest level is now 120. Pandavignon Quest: To be consistent with the bestiary of the area, the NPC Moktwa asks the adventurers to defeat larvae rather than wild plants. The level of the quest is increased, it is now 20. Quest Who's booting Booty Butts? : the prerequisite for making the soles of wind is now to have a level of 50 in a trade less (instead of 100). Quest The Gobs Fair: The Goblin Goblin monster is less resilient and causes less damage in combat. Ivory Dofus Quest Series: It is now possible to speak to the Dardondakal Dragon once the quest line is over. The name of the Searchable Needle Finder monster appears precisely in the fight against Nebgib. The name of Xelor's monster dial appears precisely in the fight against agent Nick Couteau. The quest Search Kros is disabled (the interactions between DOFUS and Krosmaster games are no longer maintained). Bunch of Keys Resetting of the Bunch of Keys now takes place on a fixed date (and not 7 days after having made a dungeon), every Tuesday at 07:00 DUT. Mounts and breeding Seemyool Vitality bonus is removed. We made this change to improve the balance between Dragoturkey and Seemyool bonuses. Pen icons are properly removed from the world map when the character leaves their guild. The interfaces related to the mount are closed if it is released. In the shed interface, mounts are no longer removed from the list and no longer become invisible in pens if the character tries to convert them into certificates when there are no more pods available in his inventory. Previously it was necessary to close and open the interface to refresh the list and leave the map to reappear the entity. Crafting Harvests and actions in action are kept after an interruption by a fight (aggression by a monster or by a Resource Protector for example). In the Profession interface, the experience of collecting fish is displayed correctly. In some cases, when collecting resources, the character may not be able to move to the resource and receive an error message indicating an impossible action. This problem is fixed. In the tooltips of objects, the names of craftsmen and mages are correctly placed at the end of the list of effects. The experience gained from the crafting of the Hunting Knife is increased. Maging New Pa type runes are added for Heal and Fixed Resistances (Air, Water, Fire, Earth, Neutral). Object transfer via drag-and-drop in the maging interface works properly. Combat The preview of group and idol experience gains is working well (the potential earnings displayed were sometimes unusually high). Spell effect area preview is enhanced for spells that require specific targets. For example, for the Sadidas Tremor spell, the area of damage caused around trees will now be displayed. The damage preview works correctly when a target sacrifices allies and is targeted (on the Blérom monster for example). When a Summon dies at the beginning of its turn while under the control of its summoner, the summoner recovers its spells correctly when its turn comes. When a trap is triggered, a specific animation is now played. It is visible to all fighters. When using a Resurrection spell (for example, Spiritual Leash of the Osamodas), Characters are now prioritized over Sidekicks. The order of priority during resurrections becomes: Characters -> Sidekicks -> Summons. In the combat list interface, the combat type pictogram now displays correctly. The AP gain display in the combat log when casting the Ecaflip's Roulette spell contains the correct value (2 AP). Damage sharing effects applied to a single target no longer negate the effects of interception of damage.

PA: 3 Scope: 5, 6 and 7 at grades 1, 2 and 3 2 shots per target, 3 shots per round Guilds & Alliances In the alliance interface, the checkbox to enable or disable the AvA will gray out properly during combat. Interfaces listing guild members and guild customization are updated when guild rights for a member are changed. The KOTH interface is improved: the alliance control gauge is displayed correctly if it is tied on a single map, the equality text lists the relevant alliances, tooltips are added, and texts are replaced correctly. In the list of Guild Perceptors and Alliance Fights (Perceptors and Prisms), when a fight is in progress, it is possible to enter as a spectator of this fight by clicking on the spectating symbol. Spousal teleportations no longer serve to divert entry restrictions to guild houses and homes with a lock code. House sharing with the guild is correctly blocked for guilds lower than 10 and seniority less than 2 months old. Renaming and changing guild and alliance crest services could sometimes be unusually blocked for some guilds and alliances. This problem is fixed. Interfaces The majority of the game's interfaces are now movable. The level gain interfaces are graphically enhanced. Shop interfaces, to feed a family and to manage guild rights no longer prohibit other interactions as long as they are active. The display of the number of characters by type of server is simplified. The character creation button is now integrated in the list of characters, it is positioned after the last character of the list. When creating characters, the spell interface ("Learn More" button) disappears correctly when you choose another class. The icon to enlarge the presentation video of a class is modified and the behavior of the pause and resumption of the video is modified. During character creation, class thumbnails are no longer grayed out and the arrow that indicates the selected class is moved. When trying to create a character without having an available slot, an explanatory interface is now displayed. In the shop, the icon "Ogrines" is displayed correctly on each item. The tooltip when flying over an enclosure door or house now has a size that fits correctly the text displayed. The outer margins of tooltips are increased to improve readability. The tooltip for the territories interface appears and moves correctly with the window. The object recycling interface is now properly aligned with the inventory. Spell icons are correctly positioned in the companions interface. In the list of servers, if the status of an unlisted server is updated, this server is added to the list. In the character creation interface, class names can not go beyond their frame. Purchasing a feature reset service correctly updates the information displayed by the customer. In the character creation interface, the default selected class is chosen according to the characters that the player has already created: for the creation of the first character, the class selected by default is chosen randomly among the most accessible classes. The default text displayed in the search fields is correctly removed when text is entered quickly. In the Alignment interface, the wings of the character do not overflow on the other texts of the interface. The weapon tooltip is displayed correctly in the spell shortcut bar. The characteristics of Companions are correctly displayed in the Companions interface. In some situations, the spell effects displayed in the spell tooltips overlapped and rendered the texts unreadable. This problem is fixed. In the inventory, the bank and the merchant mode, the category "All" is now selected by default (the last category consulted remains memorized after the closing of these interfaces). The Live Object Appearance Selection interface refreshes correctly when the object gains a level, even if the interface is open. In the drop-down lists that filter the interface information, the selected filter no longer has a specific background color. The choices displayed in the drop-down list for filtering the territories in the conquest interface are no longer abnormally grayed out. The vertical scroll bar of the Ankabox messaging is replaced inside the interface. In the array interface and in the bestiary loot list, the number of slots displayed corresponds to the number of objects, there is no more empty object slot. The arrows that point to some interface elements in the tutorial now move with the interfaces. The feature point assignment interface is correctly centered when it opens to the left of the feature window. During character creation, the personalization of faces and colors is retained for the class and gender of the chosen character only. If the player selects another class after customizing the appearance of a character, that new class will be displayed with the default appearance. In the character creation interface, the right and left arrows (which allow you to navigate between classes), also work on the first and last class of the list. The random generation of colors during the creation of a character is unlimited (the proposals do not cycle over the same values). Achievements The achievements of the characters of the same account (from the same server) are now shared. Achievements can be unlocked for each character, but rewards for items (mostly resources) from the "Dungeons", "Monsters" and "Event" categories can only be earned once per account and per server. We made this change to significantly limit the excessive generation of resources by players who create characters dedicated to the validation of certain Achievements. Three Achievement are added for the capture of Alignment Bounty Monsters. Forest Animals Achievement is validated correctly in all areas of the game that include monsters that must be defeated. Beginner, Novice, Initiate, Chick, Benjamin, Minime, Cadet, Junior, Hope, Senior and Veteran Achievements now reward kamas. The goal of getting Ush Plateau Achievement is added to Paid Tactical Achievement. The goal of getting Make the other Ush Achievement is added to Final Destination Achievement. The goal of getting Pounicheur (Score 300) Achievement is added to Prestige Achievement. The goal of getting Ush Galesh (Score 300) Achievement is added to Success Idol in the Skin. The goal of getting Miausolée of the Pounicheur Achievement is added to Where I Go Achievement, the monsters do not reappear anymore. The goal of getting Ush Plateau Achievement is added to I Am Legend Achievement. Achievement Sealing test: the amount of kamas obtained as a reward for it is now fixed, it no longer depends on the level of the character. In the Achievement interface, if there is no reward of a certain type (0 kama, 0 XP and no item), then this type of reward is no longer displayed with an empty box. Kolossium Characters who do not fight enough in Kolossium now get a temporary status unclassified (they will not appear in the rankings of the official site). This status disappears when the character evaluation system estimates that the character has recently made enough fights. This change allows us to dynamically remove rankings inactive characters from Kolossium or who do not wish to take the risk of seeing their rating drop. NPC shop Annabelle Huaire (in the Kolossium building) now offers: A new Skeleton Harness for Dragoturkeys and Seemyools for 200,000 Kolossokens each. Emotes "Attract attention", "Motus", "Feet", "Fist raised" and "Rub your hands" (previously only possible with Kroz from Krosmaster). Spell Point Scrolls Spell Point Scrolls can no longer be purchased from the Annabelle Huaire NPC Shop (they are no longer useful because Spells are now evolving without Spell Points). Spell Point Scrolls now give 1000 Kolossokens to the character who uses them. Equipment The effects of Ivory Dofus are correctly removed when the target is under the effect of Sacrifice and is damaged. The effect is not reactivated until the Sacrifice ends. The effects of Ivory Dofus also do not work in combination with the Ataraxia (Warning variant) and Determination (Bond variant) spells. The effects of the Diplodoplie are correctly displayed in game. Monsters In the area for non-subscriber characters around Astrub, the size of the monster groups is changed: a group consisting of only 1 monster, a group containing 2 to 3 monsters and a group of 4 to 8 monsters. The purpose of this change is to provide more groups for novice players who are fighting alone or in small groups. Moowolf: The power of the monster evolves correctly when confronted in a group: it evolved when it was confronted by 1 to 5 characters instead of 4 to 8 characters. Count Harebourg: A Critical Failure of the Black Tofu Summon spell no longer passes the caster's turn. Levitrof: The Plain Reflections spell can no longer fire twice in the same turn in the case where Levitrof begins its turn in a glyph or bomb wall. One-Armed Bandit: The level of the monster is increased to match that of other monsters in his family. In the Astrub Forest, the monster is replaced by the Manned Bandit. Rokoko: The effects of the Eriktion spell can no longer be accumulated more than 2 times. Elemental Fire Bwork: The monster's AP withdrawal bonus is removed. Dark Rose: The monster can now appear in the Astrub Fields. Its probability of appearance is increased. Its HP is reduced. Prespic: Its MP is reduced. Its Wisdom is reduced. Invisibility spell duration is reduced. Replica spell is removed Secular Needle spell can only be cast once per target and twice per turn. Invisible Chafer: Invisibility spell duration is reduced. It now has aggressive behavior. Chafer Sneak: Camouflage spell can no longer be cast on the first turn. The duration and cooldown are reduced. Elite Pikeman: Its MP is reduced. Unhappy Euphoria spell no longer increases Vitality but increases the Damage. The duration is reduced. Chafer Scout: Its MP is reduced. Firefire spell is Linear. Chafer Sergeant: Its MP is reduced. Kardorim: Its MP is reduced. Bone Crunch spell MP bonus is reduced. It can no longer be cast on the first turn. All Piwis: Their MP are reduced. Hull spell range penalty is reduced. The spell now has a raise interval of 2 turns. Evil Dandelion: Its MP is reduced. Its Wisdom is reduced. Wild Grass spell AoE and Range are reduced. Demonic Rose: Its Wisdom is reduced. Dark Rose: Its MP is reduced. Wild Sunflower: Barbed Root spell Range is reduced. Wild Poison spell Range is reduced. Scarecro: Its MP is reduced. Escape! Poor madmen! spell AoE is reduced. Field Protection spell AoE and Range are reduced. Boar: Its MP is reduced. Its HP is reduced. Its Wisdom is reduced. Its Damage is reduced. Squirrol: Its Dodge is reduced. Its Wisdom is reduced. Windward Wind spell is AoE reduced. Tassel spell Range is reduced and becomes modifiable. Miliboowolf: Its MP is reduced. Flair spell duration and Cooldown are reduced. Treechnid and Dark Treechnid: Champa Summon spell can no longer be cast on the first turn. Its Range is reduced. Sivilish Motivation spell duration and Cooldown are reduced. The spell can only be cast around the Treechnid. Its effects are increased. Blinding Bond spell can no longer be cast on the first turn. Its range is reduced and becomes modifiable. It no longer applies a range penalty. It is renamed. Abraknettoyage spell Range is modifiable. It can only be cast once and its damage is increased. It now reduces the duration of active effects by 2 turns. The monster Troolaraj present in the pit of the Village of Bworks is replaced by a Tamed Trooll. In accordance with the other monsters present only in the dungeons of the dimensions, the orichor was removed from the loot of Grath, Chakaroze and the Lady of the Hazard (monsters of dimension Ecaflipus). Treasure Hunts Following the easing of the monster aggression system, treasure hunts that cross an area with aggressive monsters no longer provide a multiplier bonus. Bonus multipliers (x2) in the cities of Bonta and Brakmar are preserved (because the treasure hunts that take place there are more difficult). We are also applying this change because more and more players were exploiting the old way by doing treasure hunts across an area with aggressive monsters and dropping all other treasure hunts. Treasure hunts without reward multipliers seem competitive with other experience gaining methods available to characters performing activities alone. Dungeon, House, Underground Enclosure, Prison, Arena and Haven Bag now prohibit treasure hunting clues. Pets and Petsmounts The following Petsmounts can no longer be equipped when the character is in an underwater zone: Bouflux Bouftor Bounax Tofureur Chacharge Platypus hormone can now be obtained by fighting Royal Blue Jelly. Maps and areas The combat placement cells in the fifth room of the Bworker Cave are further apart. The appearance of the Class Temples of Cra, Ecaflip, Eniripsa, Feca, Iop, Osamodas, Sacrier, Sadida, Sram and Xelor are improved. Eliotrope, Enutrof, Huppermage, Ouginak, Rogue, Foggernaut and Xelor Class Temples are modified to add the Statue of the God of the Class. The Sacrier Temple is moved, it is now located at [-3,-4]. In order to improve the navigation between Astrub and Amakna, the area of the Mountain of Cracklers is modified and its graphic aspect is improved. The visuals of the Emerald Dofus, Crimson Dofus and Cawwot Dofus on maps are modified to match the new appearances of the Dofus. The symmetry of the JCJ Arena XXVII and Arena X maps is corrected. All Ougah dungeon rooms now contain monsters or passes to other cards to avoid situations where characters may not be able to exit the dungeon without a teleportation potion. Droupik is now present on the Saharach maps where he was unusually absent. The Prison subarea is renamed to Madrestam Prison. The teleportation system in Incarnam is now blocked for characters going to and from the guided tutorial maps (especially from the map dedicated to the making of the Idol). Animations and characters Characters who have not been connected since the introduction of face customization are given the opportunity to choose a face again. This change corrects the problem of characters whose heads were no longer displayed. When a character plays the "Duelist" emote facing its back, its right arm is correctly colored. The cape is displayed correctly when playing the "Laughing" emote on a mount. Measured Bow Meow blinks at a reasonable frequency. The shield no longer disappears when playing the "Guild Standard" emote. Other Following the feedback of some players, various spelling corrections were made in the text of the game (Dedicated topic on DOFUS forums: messages from August 7, 2017 to October 29, 2017 were taken into account). Transformed characters (Al Howin's Gobball, for example) can no longer use a dimensional portal. The tooltip associated with Prospecting is corrected and no longer mentions Prospecting locks, which were removed in the past. Bwak eggs can now only be used in the Cracker Mountain area. The version of DOFUS on browser now has the command "/ version". The price to go to Minotoror Island via the Nikos Monote NPC is increased. Leaving the island via this same NPC becomes free. Since Prime Scrolls are obsolete for several years, they are removed from the game. The title Disciple of the Black Watchdog can not be obtained currently, it is removed from the list displayed in the interface of the titles.
  3. With Update 2.45, we are adding a new Omega Level system to offer a new way for characters to progress beyond level 200. Goals This system's goals are as follows: Offer infinite progression beyond level 200 Showcase the experience earned beyond level 200 with cosmetic rewards Offer useful bonuses for moving up Omega levels Not increase the power of characters beyond level 200 How It Works Once level 200 is reached, your characters will unlock a new progression gauge (the Omega levels). These levels will not increase the characters' power, but they will unlock cosmetic and useful rewards. These levels are unlimited; they will be "quick" to unlock at first but will progressively require more and more experience. The secondary character bonus will apply in Omega levels. For example, if you have Character A at Omega level 50 and Character B at Omega level 10 on the same account, Character B will receive double experience until it reaches Omega level 50. Cosmetic Rewards Characters will be able to unlock two types of rewards at specific Omega levels: ornaments and auras: Characters' Omega levels will be visible in-game when mousing over a character (this option can be deactivated) and in most social interfaces. Useful Rewards For each Omega level, characters will earn useful bonuses (that have no impact on combat): 5 pods 1 market slot 1 slot in merchant mode Conversion of Prior Experience Experience points earned after reaching level 200 up until the release of Update 2.45 will be converted and applied to the Omega gauge. With the launch of Update 2.45, characters that had previously continued to acquire experience beyond level 200 may potentially reach Omega level X when they first log in. We decided to favor converting prior experience gains for several reasons: The Omega levels provide useful and cosmetic bonuses, but will not make certain characters (with huge amounts of experience) more powerful than the others. These levels are unlimited, so there is no risk that certain characters would have already attained the maximum Omega level immediately on the release of Update 2.45. We do not envisage competitive challenges surrounding the Omega levels, and therefore we didn't have any particular reason to start all players at Omega level 0. Q & A Are you planning a competition or specific rewards for characters that reach the highest Omega levels? No, we are not planning any competitions around Omega levels (other than the experience rankings already present on the official website), nor any specific rewards for characters that reach the highest Omega levels. The most effective ways to earn huge amounts of experience are generally based on extensive use of several accounts and an "industrial" repetition of identical content (the same dungeons with set class compositions to maximize gains, for example). We do not want to encourage the use of these methods by promoting them via competitions or exclusive rewards. Ideally, we would like for the most efficient methods to maximize experience gains in DOFUS to be much "healthier", but we are not in a position to achieve this in the short or medium term. This is a very long-term objective for us, one that we have already started to address via dynamic placements at the start of fights, and diversifying ways to earn experience. Will There Be Achievements for Attaining Omega Levels? We do not plan to add Achievements for attaining Omega levels. We feel that the current Achievements that reward attainment of classic levels are sufficient, and we prefer to limit Achievements to the most deserving activities (completing content and more difficult content). Do you plan to introduce power bonuses for Omega levels? We have no plans to add additional power with the Omega levels in the short, medium or long term. As with the spell variants that are obtained between levels 100 and 200, we do not want a considerable investment in experience after level 200 to be necessary to optimize your characters. We feel that attaining level 200 takes enough time for new players who progress "normally" (without multiple accounts and without outside help).
  4. Background This time last year, we revamped the Sacriers, eliminating the Earth path, reorganizing elemental spells, and modifying Punishments, which were more effective when Sacriers have less than 50% their health points. We rapidly realized that these changes to the Sacriers (notably those involving the Punishments) unfortunately raised a few issues: Sacriers could change Punishments several times per turn, and this allowed them to perform multiple roles easily. The system that required Sacriers to have less than half their health points to take advantage of maximum power Punishments was not very intuitive and generated an overly strong threshold effect. For these reasons, we made considerable changes in how Punishments work last April, disconnecting them from the Sacriers' Vitality and applying a progressive bonus over several turns. This update allowed us to significantly improve the class without having to overhaul all spells in depth. It made the class function in a healthier manner by better separating the various roles that Sacriers can fulfill. However, this has moved the class further away from what had previously been its specialties, notably its "Berserker" side and the ability to manage and use their Vitality wisely. When creating spell variants (and this goes for all classes), we do not want to use mechanics that do not satisfy us as the basis for spells. This is why we wanted to clean up Sacrier spells before dealing with their variants. The Revamp This revamp aims to make the class more coherent with what it is supposed to be (its identity as a Berserker class) while improving how certain mechanics operate. Punishments Punishments have always been a cornerstone in Sacrier spells. Last year, we reduced their number to three: Swift for mobility, Robust for taking hits, and Bloodthirsty for damage. Today, we are leaving these vestiges of the past behind us: The Punishment system has been eliminated. Suffering = Power We are replacing it with a "Suffering" system: The more Suffering that Sacriers accumulate, the less life they have and the more damage they inflict. The less Suffering they have, the more life they have and the less damage they suffer. Sacriers can, depending on the spells they use, increase or reduce their Suffering. Their level of Suffering is determined by the spells they use: Very offensive elemental spells increase Suffering. Defensive elemental spells reduce Suffering. Sacriers can therefore decide whether they want to play a defensive or offensive role, by playing some spells instead of others. There are obviously some limits. Suffering varies from -10 to 10 and cannot go beyond these limits, with the following bonuses: Positive Suffering (1 to 10): Sacriers gain damage but lose Vitality with each increment of Suffering. At 6 and above, they change appearance and gain a better damage bonus. Negative Suffering (-1 to -10): Sacriers gain Vitality with each increment. At -6 and below, they change appearance and gain a damage reduction bonus. This system seems to us to be a good alternative to the Punishment system: Their roles are no longer determined by Punishments that take the place of other potentially more interesting spells. Sacriers' actions are what determine their role over time. Sacriers' damages are inversely proportional to their capacity to withstand damage (the less Vitality they have, the more damage they can cause, and inversely). As you must have noticed, the mobility bonus from the Swift Punishment has not been replaced in the Suffering gauge. While this Punishment played its role well (positioning/movement), it is a role that serves above all to complement both the class's offensive and defensive capacities. For this reason, we did not want to isolate it. Sacriers are therefore free to use mobility spells (including Transposition) at any level of Suffering. Spell Organization The elimination of Punishments therefore freed up 3 new spells, making it possible to bring back Earth! The 4 elemental paths have been reorganized to better integrate the Suffering system. Each path is structured as follows: 1 positioning or movement spell 1 "offensive" spell that increases Suffering 1 "defensive" spell that lowers Suffering The utility spells, for their part, are little affected by this revamp: The spell Transposition no longer needs a specific state to be cast. The spell Convalescence no longer needs a specific state to be cast. The spell Punishment no longer needs a specific state to be cast, and no longer applies the Gravity state. The spell Pain Shared has been replaced by a new spell that increases Suffering by 2 levels. The spell Pain Shared spell is now used as a variant. The spell Evasion now operates in a slightly different manner: It now applies Close Combat Invulnerability and always pushes back one cell in close combat attacks.
