Halloween Patch 1197
« on: November 01, 2014, 01:21:41 PM »
RANGER

Slashing wounds
now uses a small % of focus in its equation as a bonus modifier

Electrocute
this will slightly mess up the electrocute 'buff' display.
added in a SHOCK trigger to fire 100% on each hit.
'every time a player hits with electrocute counters a small damage shock is added to their attack, increases in amount for how many electrocute counters the player has'

Does not subtract shock counters.
Makes Electrocute do constant bonus damage with a big explosion at the end as it currently does.
has a 100 ms internal delay, does AOE damage when procing

Storm Surge
Now allows pistols to be used, and correctly allows crossbows!


HANDCROSSBOWS
Unique Handcrossbows now have a rarity of 100, and should show up

UNSUMMON MERCENARY SCROLL
Fixed it so that it no longer also summons a mercenary, oops.


TIER2 TEST DUNGEON and **LIMITED TIME** HALLOWEEN REWARD QUEST
I have brought back the dead for a true look at how Tier2 could function
Within the Test dungeon is a new quest giver, and 6 bosses to potentially defeat!

A **NEW** Mythical Pumpkin Head awaits, there are infact 4 new variations of "The Dark Harvest" Rewards... Each character can complete the quest once, I wonder if anyone will actually be able to. 

You MIGHT need to group up for this one.

It is indeed a tier2 test dungeon, but I gave a specific reward for people to complete it.

Need feedback on how the fight goes.

The Dragon Riders are challenging, managed to kill them all with nodeaths after i pulled them 1 by 1 back to the start of the test area, however, the pumpkin-rak'var was a pure death-fest :P on average i managed to do 1mil damage on him before i died, so about 25-30 deaths before i killed him O-o

The Reward is crazy tho, best helm i have ever seen :D

I'll have to tweak him so he doesn't 1 shot everyone constantly, its part of the process.

The helm i got has 347 health regen per second, +7001 hp, +40% cast speed, +22,3% movespeed "Helm of the Dark Harvest"

Btw, it seems something changed with either the DR on bosses or their random affixes, went to Abe earlier and he spawned with the "Invulnerable" affix in last phase and after he put hes buff up i was doing 0 damage until it was gone, and the Troll King also seemed to take a little while longer to kill, not sure if anything changed, tho it seems the buff abe uses now gives him +25% DR, didnt see that earlier.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the helmet also has 2 sockets, amazing :D

I have tested the dungeon an I can say that it is pretty difficult, atm I cannot kill the third boss, hits too hard, moves too quickly.

I'have recently finished the DF content so my next goal is the dress a character that is able to do this halloween adventure. The problem I'm having is that I play with a crit warlock build and when I enter the test dungeon my crit goes to 36% LOL. I'll have to tweak the build. How long do you think this event will last? I would like to know it because I would like to dress a few characters to be able to do this content, but I don't know if I would have so much time :(.

Well first thing you want to do, is to get a new set of gear with the new defensive stat caps (Tier2 dungeon debuff is higher than T1 debuffs), and even then you are going to die lots and lots :P

I messed with the troll kings armor, trying to make him last longer.

I'll likely tweak the boss's damage amounts a bit with a patch tonight to bring it down more, I needed feedback on how it was working.  Don't want to make it easy but not impossible either.



Fully geared tier1 is what im aiming for for the sweet spot.

sometimes 4 dragons awake and you have to fight 2 headsman.

the damage helm is weak, and some players cant see it and cant pick it up. i saw the item trade it to another player and it vanished.

the damage helm is weak, and some players cant see it and cant pick it up. i saw the item trade it to another player and it vanished.

trading might be gibbled because of its quality, that happens for any item that bugs the game by being too strong, its a TL2 bug.

not sure what you mean about 2 headsman that should be basically impossible unless two people pull the switch, which shouldn't happen because the switch hides itself right away when pulled.. interesting i'll have to make sure its not local only.
