Patch Notes - v402 Fractured Memories Update!

edited September 2017 in Patch Notes

Overview

We are super-excited to announce the official patch notes for v402, the “Fractured Memories” update. Over the past week, we have been refining this version on our PTS in preparation for Live, and in preparation of our Steam launch. We fixed a variety of bugs based on your reports (not listed here so they don’t confuse folks) and we thank you so much for your efforts!
Not only does this update include the new feature Fractured Memories for levels 15+, but it also includes new areas in the Xanadu region for end-game players. We also have some great “quality-of-life” improvements, such as hiding damage text, reviewing damage from previous instance runs, and the removal of GameGuard. In addition, we are taking our first step towards player trading by allowing trading when you are partied in an instance.

Fractured Memories

Fractured Memories offers a different way to grow your characters, but also offers another way to obtain gear. Fractured memories pulls from all of the game’s content to create a unique experience each time with different difficulty levels, monster placements, and zones. You won’t get the same experience twice!

In additional to traditional gear, players earn Ability Points that increase their characters’ attributes and rewards—across the entire account! As you grow your Ability Points, you will be able to increase your difficulty level and challenge harder content.

In addition to character growth there is also a class-based Leaderboard. This quarterly ranking will reward a unique costume and cannot be obtained anywhere else.

Check out the full Fractured Memories guide for more details!

Rules

1.Entering and Rest Points

  • Players can enter starting at level 15 through Maril.
  • There is no Rest Point cost or penalty.
  • Town NPCs Ajax, Chiru, and Clodia can craft items required for entering. Items required to craft a key are: 3 Blue Kritium Shard, 1 Gold Kritium Shard, 3 Green Kritium Shard, 2 Violet Kritium Shard, and 20 Pure Kritium Shard.

Please note! We are aware that players are currently experiencing some Kritium shortages in-game. With this update, we're hopeful that we've tweaked the Kritium flow to the point where this entry should be less prohibitive. That said, give it a shot on the PTS and let us know! That's the exact sort of thing we're looking for feedback on.

2.Difficulty

  • Players can choose the difficulty level with Maril.
  • Players must complete the lower tier of difficulties before being granted access to the next higher tier of difficulty.

3.Game Play

  • The Danger Zone sectors are chosen randomly upon entering. Bosses and monsters are also random in type and location, as well as in the buffs they have applied.
  • The blue “boss bar” fills up as players defeat monsters and pick up the Monster Soul that drops. When the bar is full, the player can encounter a Boss.
  • Players can earn a bonus reward if they fill the boss bar and conquer the boss faster than the specific lap time (six minutes).

4.Party

  • Parties can include from 2–4 players, but the rank rewards vary for each party size.

5.Fractured Memories Leaderboards

  • If players successfully complete a Labyrinth within 6 minutes, the players who joined are automatically ranked on the leaderboards.
  • There are fourteen kinds of leaderboards: 11 solo play and 3 for party play.

6.Leaderboard Rewards

  • Rewards will be distributed every 12 weeks for each of the 14 leaderboards.
  • The rewards can be duplicated. For example: Four times duplicated: Doom Blade rank, party of 2 rank, party of 3 rank, party of 4 rank.
  • Players could check the rewards in Rank window.

Major Rewards – Ability System

1.What is the Ability System?

  • The Ability System buffs players across their entire account.
  • Example Buffs: additional damage when attacking from behind, reduced damage taken from ranged attack, increased gold drop, reduced cooldown, etc.
  • There are three kinds of Abilities available to apply: Offensive, Defensive, Utility.
  • Each Ability has levels, and players can upgrade to higher levels with points awarded from clearing the Fractured Memories.

2.Ability Upgrade point

  • Player can gain Ability points from clearing the Fractured Memories.
  • When players clear Fractured Memories within six minutes, the player receives 3 Upgrade points.
  • Players receive 1 Upgrade point for taking longer than six minutes to clear Fractured Memories.

3.How to upgrade your Abilities

  • Player can upgrade an Ability’s level by spending Upgrade points.
  • Upgrade probability is low if the cleared Labyrinth level is lower than the Ability level of the player.
  • Unused Upgrade points are removed when the player returns to the town.

Items
1. Space-Time Hexagram or Tarnished Hexagram

  • These materials dropp from Bosses in Fractured Memories. Players can exchange hexagrams for Strange gear.
  • The higher the difficulty, the more the materials drop.

2.Strange gear

  • These can be purchased from [Event Manager] Lilis with Space-Time Hexagrams or Tarnished Hexagrams.
  • Contains various items that range from Inferior to Legendary quality, determined randomly.

3.Novice Fractured Memories: Inferior to Legendary

4.Advanced Fractured Memories: Inferior to Legendary

5.Expert Fractured Memories: Inferior to Legendary

6.Master Fractured Memories: Inferior to Starhenge

7.Soul Gem

  • Soul Gems are dropped inside the Fractured Memories.

8.ETC

  • Whetstones and Gold Chests also at a lower rate.

Xanadu Side Quest

We have added four stages to the Xanadu area.

1.Sentinel's Way - Tharia (Boss)
2.Azure Tiger Shrine - Stony Yaksha (Boss)
3.Luciana's Garden - Tarza (Boss)
4.Luciana's Pavilion - Vindon (Boss)

Rules

1.Entry Limits

  • There are no limits, but Rest Points are consumed, and players need entry items, when entering the dungeon.
  • The NPC Chiru (in Xanadu) can craft the required items.

2.Resurrection Delay & Initializing

  • There is a delay between death and resurrection on the Xanadu side quest.
  • If all players die during combat with the stage named monster or boss monster, its HP resets.

3.Recommended Combat Rating

  • Hard Mode: 30,000
  • Extreme Mode: 90,000

4.Quest

  • Added daily quests for the Xanadu side quest, which rewards evolution material when cleared.
  • Players acquire stage licenses by completing sub-quests.

UI - Stage entrance limit informing function
If an entry limitation exists on Danger Zone, the UI provides an explanation. For example: The message "Not enough entry pass" would appear, overlapping the Danger Zone images.

    Reward Card Renewal – Shattered Table
    We have revamped the reward table for Shattered Table stage:

    • Kritium Crystal Box (Acquire 20–50 Kritium Crystals, determined at random.)
    • Violet Boss Soul Box (Acquire 10–20 violet boss souls, determined at random.)
    • Gold Chest (containing 1,000,000 gold)
    • Ghost Shard (Charm crafting material)
    • Ghostly Scale (Charm crafting material)

    Added Player Trading Between Party Members
    We have added a new trading system allowing players to trade between party members.

    It is possible to trade legendary gear acquired by party members who looted together, before leaving the stage.

    The opportunity to trade is only available inside the stage where the gear was acquired. If players return to town or restart the stage, the gear will no longer be tradeable between party members.
    Known Issue: We are working on a fix to disable restarting a dungeon through F3 while in the middle of a trade shortly, and looking to add a vote function for the future.

    Know Your Damage!

    1.We added a "Simplified Damage" option. If you activate this option, damage numbers will display as 10k, 20k, etc. You can also remove damage display entirely.
    2.Added a damage meter showing recent stage clear damage. To see this meter, hit ESC and click on Result.

    Accent Costume / Emblem Combining Function

    Added accent costume and Emblem combiner in the item combiner.

    1.If you combine 2 Emblems, you will receive one Emblem (determined at random), or receive a higher grade of Emblem.
    2.If you combine 2 accent costumes, you will receive a new accent costume (determined at random), or have a chance to receive a wings or auras accent piece.

    • Please note that the granted stats from an Accent costume piece are retained after combining, along with the 30 days of expiration.

    Replaced GameGuard with Xigncode

    We are replacing GameGuard with Xigncode. This means that Kritika no longer requires elevated permissions to play, and should improve overall compatibility with other programs. Let us know your experience and we will work to continually improve your safety and the game’s security.

    Hammer Colors

    We have unified the hammer icon colors (which indicate evolution).

    Devotion Buff Increase
    We have increased the bonus Exp amount and Monster EXP Bonus from the Devotion system buff:

    • Level 1—EXP Bonus increased by 15%
    • Level 2—EXP Bonus increased by 30%
    • Level 3—EXP Bonus increased by 50%
    • Level 4—EXP Bonus increased by 70%
    • Level 5—EXP Bonus increased by 100%

    Improvements and Fixes

    Soul Gems
    You can trade in Violet Boss Soul for Red Mega Boss souls

    Challenge Letters
    You can purchase the new Certain Challenge Letter box with Violet Boss Souls

    Shattered Table Selection
    The number of clears for the Shattered Table now appears in the Danger Zone Highway selection.

    Arena Ranking
    The ranking has changed from counting a stage as “cleared” to counting a stage as “challenged.” This means that you can challenge your rank each week and still be ranked.

    Earring Adjustment
    We are applying a 1 second cool down to the effect of 15+ enhanced earrings only on Fractured Memories. (This doesn't effect other dungeons.)
    We are currently looking at a possible bug causing this to apply elsewhere, stay tuned for more info

    Class Change Bug Fix
    We have corrected the bug that caused the main story quest to disappear after a character chose their advanced class. Characters can now choose their advanced class at level 15 without having any main story completion requirements. Even after you choose your advanced class, your character can still go back and experience the main story below level 15.

    Additional Hotfix Notes
    https://forums.enmasse.com/kritika/discussion/4104/hot-fix-v405-patch-notes#latest

  • What do you mean here?

    Accessories Loot Box—contains a variety of accessories for 295 Kred

    Any details on what is included?

  • that cd on earring is quite rough .5 ex per second takes 200 seconds to fill bar... some classes would have to change skills since before they played with attackspeed and high hit count skills to build meter and use ex and now their high hit skills aren't as valuable. Aside from not nerfing them a skill reset should be sent out since it's a substantial nerf from filling up bar in 3 seconds to filling up bar in 3 mins....

  • Great patch, im so excited!!!

    Awwww yeahh let's go i'm hyped!! B)

  • "Replaced GameGuard with Xigncode" maybe this means i can play with bdo open still :smiley: maybe also means i can put more time into the game again now that i maybe wont need to close my other game to play this :smiley:

  • MyriasMyrias Member ✭✭

    so steam released will be delayed, til?

  • Excellent update, it is nice to see when a publisher learns from their mistakes, testing new updates in PST was a very good idea.

    Really, as much as i'm excited about this patch, I really dont get why you still want to add this even knowing that It comes with such a game breaking bug. It's clear already that it's not a "possible" bug. It's known that it's added everywhere. Why add it at all? Now we have to play a broken game in the live server for god knows how long until you fix it? That's just mindblowing to me.

    New Loot Boxes Added
    1.Emblem Loot Box—contains a variety of emblems for 245 Kred

    Definitely dont like this either. As we've seen from people that tested the new side-dungeons, the materials to craft emblems has terrible drop rate, and for the new emblem feature you'll need a bunch of them to play the RNG merging game. This is pretty much saying that if we want to collect emblems, the only viable way is by paying. If it was for only for aesthetics, w/e, but the new collection system has huge attribute bonuses, which makes this a big step into p2w.

    I dont mind having emblems in the cash shop, but at least please add some decent drop rate ingame for the materials. Dont make it a cash shop only feature.

    Oops meant to say Accent not accessories.

    Also I updated the second templar pack, looks like we copy pasted the first one twice.

    so prolly gonna find out in a few hours anyways, but does the new attendance mark a different item than todays attendance? do they overlap or just collect 1?

    This is confusing. Why go ahead and add something that you are fairly certain is bugged? Why not hold off and hotfix it in once the kinks are ironed out. Introducing known bugs into a live game seems really weird.

    So there was no way to craft SH gear from the xanadu side stories then... I don't know if I read that you could or not, but for some reason I thought this was supposed to be like an alternative to SH for people.

  • Why was the +15 earring nerf needed in fractured memories? Was there too many WGs (all 10 of them on the NA sever) having fun or something and the fun police came to put a stop to it? Will there be a balance readjustment for them to compensate without ex there other skills dmg and cd seem like they are from level 50.
