Song of the Ateala

Hey there, heroes!

Last time in the main story, after your return from the Shapeless Empire, you had just arrived back in Sulen'Eska when multiple requests for aid arrived the Sandsea. A mysterious rift had opened in the Sandsea, and ice elementals and strange beasts were pouring out, covering the desert in ice and snow.

Surprisingly, one plea for help came from the Rose presence in the town of Duat. The other request for help came from the floating city of Atrea, home of the remnants of the magical Ateala race.

And so, you traveled to Duat and barely managed to help its citizens escape before the town froze over.

This week, you've arrived in Atrea to help the Ateala. Atrea still floats, protected by its magical barriers... but for how long?

It's time for a war.


Also this week, a bunch more fixes. Yay!

Challenge Arena

  • Unraveler & Extreme Unraveler
    • Fixed bug where the Nightmare scream would alternate between Good and Evil elements.
    • Fixed bug where regular Unraveler's Drain attack had 200 bonus, instead of 50.
  • Sinnocence
    • Fixed bug where Sinnocence's Blinding Light DoT was incorrectly labelled as a buff (Resulting in 1 less turn of effect, and no effect pop up).
  • Endless Invasion
    • Fixed bug where the Togskin buff could be overwritten by other skill effects.
    • Fixed bug where the Togskin buff was being applied twice
    • Fixed bug where the Tog Venom DoT was never applied after floor 80.

    • Fixed bug where "No Buffs" would remove Stuffed.

General Fixes

    • Fixed issue where some classes would not be able to reach the healing pad.

Classes

  • Evolved ChickenCow Armor
    • Dragon Coin sellback price reduced to 45, down from 50, to match the original ChickenCow armor.

  • Kathool Adept

  • ShadowHunter and Chrono Z

A Petal Falls

Hey there, heroes!

A new arc opens in the Book 3 main story! Previously, you travelled to Nieboheim at the behest of Kara, leader of the rebellion against the Rose. Now that you've returned, well... There's no rest for heroes, is there?

As soon as you've finished regaling Sulen'Eska's court with your story, a most unexpected request arrives.

What could be the matter now?

Head over to Sulen'Eska and speak with Kara to continue the Book 3 main story in this week's quest: A Petal Falls!

 


 

Also this week, introducing a much requested new option: Weather Effects!

Turning this option off (uncheckmarked) will turn off weather effects such as rain and snow that can cause severe performance issues for older systems (and even on high graphics on good systems!)

This option is saved to the Flash cookie like all other options.

Khvorost

Hey there, heroes!

Last time in Book 3's main story, you managed to save yourself from the grasp of the Magesterium of Nieboheim with the aid of Khvorost, the chaosweaver! This week, as you sail across the seas, back home to the Land of Dragons, Falconreach, and Sulen'Eska, there's not much to be done except chat with your newfound ally.

Just who is Khvorost? Can he be trusted? And when is he going to call in on that favor you owe him?

Head over to Nieboheim's First Halo to play this week's quest: Khvorost!


Also this week, some slight Technomancer adjustments!

  • Sonic Boom Blaster
    • -Immobility and -Bonus duration has been reduced to 1 turn, down from 5 turns.
    • -Bonus effect has been increased to -50, up from -20.
  • Tog-Drone

Pet Changes Update

Hey there, heroes!

The bugs have been fixed with pet equipping, and after reading feedback and discussing the subject, as well as creating some groundwork in the game engine for future pets, I've decided to go ahead with re-allowing pet swapping in battle.

So what does this mean?

  • You can change your pet (equip, unequip, etc) on your turn.
  • You cannot do this on guest or pet turns.

But what about the future and unrestrictive pet design?

I've spent some time and implemented a system that will allow pets to share rotational cooldowns. This means that future shield pets will be able to share cooldowns with Baby Chimera, for example, and future pets that stun will be able to share cooldowns with Mewphant. Other effects can also share these cooldowns, and while currently or in the future they may be unintuitive, I believe such things can be rectified when the time comes.

There has been one balance update with this release, though.

  • Baby Chimera has had its shield reduced in power significantly.
    • Its shield used to provide defense equal to 1.25* level + CHA/2, resulting in 235 B/P/D at level 90 with 200 CHA. This has been reduced to Level + CHA/4, resulting in 145 B/P/D at level 90 with 200 CHA.

I apologize for the rate of major changes, and I appreciate all of the feedback.
As always, thanks for playing Dragonfable, and thank you for your support!

Major Pet Changes!

Hey there, heroes!

This Monday, we have an update to the way pets can be used in battle.

First, the bad news. As some of you may have already noticed, pets can no longer be swapped while in battle.

The purpose of this change is two-fold.

  • There was a major exploitable glitch that allowed for infinite guest turns while preventing an enemy from attacking.
  • This opens up a much much wider variety of pet options to be created, including pets with stronger effects, since they no longer have to be balanced around being able to be swapped in battle.

There are some immediate changes to balance as a result of this, however.

  • Strategies that relied on pet swapping are no longer viable.
  • You will have to think about which pet you want to take into different battles, just like other pieces of equipment, such as trinkets or artifacts.

You will be able to un-equip your pet while in battle, though, should you encounter a need to. A confirmation box has been added to pet unequipping since you will not be able to re-equip a pet while in battle. An option has been added to the dragon summoning interface to dismiss your pet dragon.

You are now unable to swap gear while it is your pet or guests' turn.
The ability to do so was abusable with certain gear set ups where you could equip a fully offensive gear set up on your turn, attack, then swap gear to defenses on a guest or pet's turn. This is no longer possible.

Now for the good news!

Manual Pet Turns has been added as an Option.

This allows you to control your pet's turn. Currently, this means you are able to select your pet's target, as well as skip your pet's turn. And perhaps most importantly, there is an option to feed your pet a treat. (Feeding your pet a treat has no effect on combat and is there for flavor. Pet treat flavor.) By default, this is off. When Manual Pet Turns is turned off, your pet will attack automatically, just as it used to.

You cannot change this option while in battle.

Other changes:

  • The Metal element icon has returned to metal element weapons.
  • Resistances are now listed as "Resistances" instead of "Resists" in the character information panel.
  • Characters with no resistances will have their Resistances listed as "None"
  • Fixed a bug where characters with no resistances would not have applied resistances listed in the character information panel.
  • Fixed a bug where Argus Skywatcher (Dreamspace Dryad challenge, etc) would not properly apply his Avoidance debuff on the player.
  • Fixed various items that were giving NaN or undefined resistances.
  • Fixed the M.O.P. cat pets that were attacking backwards.

And that's about it for this Monday! I know some players may be initially disappointed with the pet and equipment changes, but this opens up a lot of interesting possibilities for the future.

As always, thanks for playing, and feedback is always welcome!
