Hotfix Edit

We've been listening to your feedback and are addressing all unintended side affects. Keep providing constructive feedback and letting us know the little (and big) bugs you find. Happy Realming!

Respec Edit

After some feedback, we've decided to extend the Respec Weekend prices (1 copper/respec) until August 7th at midnight, which should be enough time for everyone to try out a few builds here and there. That means you all have 5 "free" respecs to try out before then. After the 7th, we will continue with the price increase and begin to add more to the Copper Store. Keep an eye on here to find out what we have in store for you soon.

Fixes Edit

- Infinite myst is no longer possible

- Fear can no longer be stacked with other CC spells 

- Updated weights on all (known) items that were missed 

- Re-balanced many NPCs that were dealing too much melee damage 

- Re-balanced maze NPCs in general to do less damage given the myst mechanics changes 

- NPCs will no longer receive negative damage (and be healed for it)

Changes Edit

- Base myst CC rounds changed from 2 to 6 for 189 SDM

- Max SR is now 400 

- Combat log now shows what myst spell has been shrugged 

- Increased drop rate in many existing dungeons 

- Increase NMH to +100% necro SDM 

- The Nightblade Jerkin is now a Shirt instead of a Tunic to allow Female and Male characters to both wear it 

- Some new Level 1 starter weapons have been added to the game. Where are they? That's up to you to find out!

This is it! The big one!

The combat changes everyone has been trying out on the Test Server are going in tonight! The staff understand this is a big change, but we think it's a pretty damn awesome one, and we think you will too. We appreciate the players who have been helping us out by providing feedback and working with us- we couldn't have done it without you! See below to see what we have in store for you this update. 

Bug Bounty Edit

To start off our update, we have a new bug bounty program! Players that find server bugs and report them to us, and or help us troubleshoot/fix them, will be eligible to receive a new vanity "Buggy Baldric" for their efforts. First one to be given out with this update. Please don't use the production server to test out bugs - if you have a bug, please let a staff member know and we'll get a fix in. Thanks to all who have been helping out thus far!

Core Gameplay Changes Edit

  • Spell Criticals are now part of the game. Your spell critical hit rate is based off of your intelligence 
  • Cast resist has been removed from the game. It has been replaced with spell resistance. This means that every spell will land although the damage or effect may be reduced OR increased based on the target's spell resistance value. 
  • Myst Shrugging is back! Shrugging chance is based off of Intelligence / Dexterity for some spells and Strength / Endurance for others. 
  • Myst Resist is gone, rip in peace 
  • Armor rating is now averaged across all armor pieces providing a more predictable amount of damage mitigation 
  • Armor weights have been normalized across the game for balance reasons, the equation is 1 stone per 5 AR 
  • Melee critical hit is now based off of dexterity and intelligence to provide more diverse melee build options 
  • Weapon damage has been tweaked on existing valuable weapons to be in line with our new balance formula 
  • Blood Sledge has received a balance pass and now gives + 50% Necro SDM, +1 Attack and + 1 Strength 
  • All valuable weapons have had their weights balanced at a rate of 1 stone per 5 damage 

Miscellaneous Changes Edit

  • Some of the loot in the vault has been cycled out and replaced with new collectibles 
  • NPCs will no longer cast Rust or Incinerate 
  • The Nightmare Helmet Necro SDM boost has been reduced to 25%
  • Drop rates across many dungeons have been increased in response to the latest data analytics 
  • The memorial has been updated again! 

Temporarily Reduced Respec Price Edit

The staff understands these changes are large in nature and, as such, we have temporarily reduced the cost of respecs to 1 copper each and have granted all game accounts five coppers.

The respec price will remain at 1 copper for the weekend and will return to it's normal 250 on Monday.  More information about coppers and respecs can be found here  http://mistwalkers.co/forum/announcements/announcing-the-mist-walkers-copper-shop

Jul 19, 2017 9:26PM Edit

MistWalkers Server Version 1.60 (7/19/2017) 

  1. Updated %chance to shrug 
  2. Added floating text over opponents head to show when under CC.
  3. Myst spells Confusion, Hold, Stun, and Fear are no longer stackable. 
  4. Updated spell feedback messages to help players with target state.

Jul 15, 2017 10:52PM Edit

  1. Reduced the chance that a caster's target will get the initial shrug.
  2. Broke shrugging down into specific categories, to balance out the system the spells and their respective "Mass" counter parts are listed below. 
    1. Fear, Confusion, Mind Shackle now have a greater chance to be shrugged based on ones Dexterity and Intelligence. 
    2. Stun, Berserk, Hold now have a greater chance to be shrugged based on ones Strength and Endurance. 
  3. Changed 'X shrugs off the spell.' text to display in red so users can easily pick it out of the combat log. 
  4. Slightly increased the chance to get a spell critical.

Jul 11, 2017 7:27PM Edit

Firstly let me thank you all on behalf of the staff; your feedback is certainly going to keep making us move the needle on this project. Anytime I feel like "Hey, we've just about got this whipped" you guys come up with problems, solutions, and ideas... For many of us this is the culmination of a 20 year dream to be able to influence the direction of the game, and modify the mechanics based on what we think it should be doing.

Let's get down to the changes in this build: 

  1. You all shared your concerns with spells critical striking too much, we agreed and so spells chance to critical strike has been reduced. The chance should be ~15% for most high SDM casters.
  2. Many of you let us know that you were concerned with "Myst Locking" -- this is the ability for NPCs or players to indefinitely cast mysticism spells on a player keeping them from ever being able to perform any actions. Well we have answered this -- there is now a "Shrugging" system implemented to help keep this from happening. The system is really 3 parts: Spell Hit Chance, Spell Duration, and Spell Shrugging. The initial chance for the spell to stick is relative to your intelligence and endurance vs. your targets respective stats. Spell duration will still be based on your SDM; though it is now variable based on chance of the actual duration (no more static cast rounds). The shrugging system depends on how many rounds you are "mysted" for, the longer you are under a spells affect -- the better chance you have of breaking it's affects. Your characters intelligence and endurance are used to calculate your base "shrug" percentages.
  3. Some boring house keeping stuff; just removed some defunct code from the server and refactored some code to be more efficient.

Jul 09, 2017 11:06PM Edit

Changes (Hotfix) 

  • Rebalanced encounters in The Foundry in response to player feedback. Please post more feedback on our Forums. 
  • Small renovations to the interior of The Gambler's Den

Jul 09, 2017 2:28PM Edit

Today we are starting our initial stages of the Magic system changes. In the current build you will find the following: 

  1. There is no longer "Magic Resist" as it existed before. It is now "Magic Armor". For example: If target is 100% Myst Resist and you have a base 4 round stun, when you cast stun on the target they will only be stunned for 3 rounds. It is a 25% negation per 100 Resist at this time. Also similar to Melee armor your "Magic Resist (Armor)" also is the percent chance that you will negate the incoming damage / duration of a spell. 
  2. Spells now have the chance to have a critical strike against your opponent. It's a bit random similar to the melee critical striking system -- it takes into account your targets SDM relative to your own, as well as your skill and a bit of luck. :) 
  3. There is no longer cast resist. 
  4. We have started updating the weights for items, you will begin to notice on the test server that weights will be increasing to advance in the direction that we *think* we need to be heading. 
  5. The server build version will now show on the bottom right hand side of your screen when you log into the world where you typically see "Xx Users are Online". This is to help us keep track of our versioning.

Jul 07, 2017 7:55PM Edit

New Content 

  • Rumor has it Dwarves have returned to the Realm and were last seen headed towards The Foundry, led by a mysterious Ringleader. 
  • Virulent, after inspecting the Wen Chapel, has somehow acquired the rights to the property from the Wen City Council and has replaced the Chapel with a Gambler's Den. 
  • Inside the Gambler's Den, there is a new dungeon called The Vault. This dungeon is a room filled with locked chests. Each chest must be unlocked with Duach's Iron Key, which "Scrooge, The Collector" sells. 
  • Every chest has the chance of containing unique items including dyes, house decorations, and rare jewelry. 
  • In addition to buying Duach's Iron Key from Scrooge, the keys may also rarely drop from some of the dungeon loot tables that have been created already.

Changes 

  • The Foundry loot table has been updated and loot rates have been increased 
  • The empowered skeletons in Naktos have finally worn out their running shoes 
  • The Maze has a loot table with a few unique drops

Jul 04, 2017 10:31PM Edit

Updated melee combat code to introduce a new factor into critical strike damage. Your strength is now a multiplier that is appended to the damage you do during a critical strike. This should help the high strength and low dex / int players to capitalize on their strength in the less frequent chance that they do land a critical strike.

Server version will now display on the bottom right of the game when players log into the world.

What to expect soon: 

  1. All armor weights will be re-adjusted, it will be 1 stone per 5 points of AR. The difference between each armor type will be the durability, iron being the least durable and admantium being the most durable. 
  2. All weapons weights will be re-adjusted, it will be 1 stone per 3 points of damage on the high end of a weapon.
  3. Endurance will be removed as a modifier for Long Swords. (Sorry this just didn't work out) 
  4. Endurance will take a secondary role likely as a modifier to either movement rate or number of swings; this is currently being tested in the closed testing environment.

Jun 30, 2017 7:33PM Edit

This current Phase of the melee damage testing has incorporated several changes.

  1. Armor counted as only a percent chance for armor to be hit, and only the armor value for that particular piece hit was used in damage negation. Now the AR rating will count as the percent chance for armor to be hit as well as the average of the armor to negate the damage.
  2. Damage is now randomly dealt to every armor piece instead of 40% of damage going to chest piece.
  3. Dexterity is the modifier while wielding a dagger, throwing dagger, and claw. (same as before)
  4. Intelligence is the modifier while wielding a short sword. (same as before)
  5. Endurance is the modifier while wielding a long sword. (new)
  6. Strength is the modifier for all other weapons (two handed).
  7. Intelligence now adds an additional chance to deal a critical strike.
  8. NPCs / PCs will receive damage dealt to them differently than before; without going into too much detail if you have low dexterity and intelligence you may suffer from receiving critical strikes more.

Planned:

  1. Weight of all weapons will be lowered to allow warriors to carry different situational weapons, as well allowing all characters to be melee if that is the player's preference understanding the modifiers iterated above.
  2. Robes, Skirts, and Shields will be factored into the AR.
  3. Shields will be added as one of the armor pieces to be hit
