v502 Psion Update Patch Notes

edited November 2017 in Patch Notes

New Character: The Psion!

Check out our guide here!

  • Added one character slot (for a total of seven slots on new accounts).
  • Added in-game Psion costumes.
  • Restorationist Genevia costume parts for Psion are now dropped rarely by Vindon in Xanadu side story.
  • Added Psion gear.
  • Added loading image of the Psion.
  • Updated the intro movie to feature the Psion.

Fractured Memories

  • Added rank rewards to the ranking menu. The rewards are a Wing costume, Memory Pages (tickets that allow you to purchase costume pieces), Kred, Soul Gems, and a Title.
  • From Wednesday, November 1 through Wednesday, December 13, you can get the Hot Pants and Tank Top Psion costume items from Lilis, in exchange for Hexagrams.

Fast Stage Alignment System

  • Youla has invented the Fast Stage Alignment System! With this system, Youla can help you complete a variety of tasks at the end of each Danger Zone:
  1. Complete quests
  2. Salvage gear
  3. Transport to other Danger Zones

Accent Costume Items

  • By using temporary Accent Items as material, Kagerfeld can now extend or re-activate the ability period of permanent Accent items. The duration is dependent on grade:
  1. Average grants a 7-day extension.
  2. Superior grants a 14-day extension.
  3. Rare grants a 30-day extension.
  • The Red Demon Accent Set is now available! This is a Rare Grade Accent Set with bonuses for equipping all pieces. You can get set pieces by combining Accent Items or from the Stylish Accent Box.

Events

  • Added leveling event for the Psion.
  • Added a daily attendance event.

Miscellaneous

  • Soul Gems have been changed to account-bound.
  • We have increased the drop rate for Xanadu Accessories, Passkey Parts, and Flawless Amethyst Statues.
  • Deleted Halloween decorations.
  • Due to UI optimization, players should now see less lag.
  • Players can no longer open Inventory, Quest, and Event windows while in PvP. Some players were abusing these windows to gain an advantage in PvP. While we troubleshoot the issue, we're removing the ability to open windows to promote fair play.
  • We have reduced the number of channels in North America and Europe - but have added a 'leveling up' channel that has an experience bonus for playing levels 1 through 59 (we will extend this to 64 in a future update)

Bug Fix

  • The Ex gauge recovery rate for +15 Enhancements has been corrected from 1.5% to 0.5%. (Before: 0.5% recovery was listed but 1.5% recovery occurred, After: 0.5% recovery and 0.5% recovery is listed)

    Just hope the the EX regen bug in arena from PTS that I reported doesnt come with this.

  • Violet kritium shortage? anything about this?

  • MPonderMPonder Member ✭✭✭

    "Added one character slot (for a total of seven slots on new accounts).". Uh, new accounts? Already created will still have 6 slots?

    • From Wednesday, November 1 through Wednesday, December 13, you can get the Hot Pants and Tank Top Psion costume items from Lilis, in exchange for Hexagrams.

    From what I have seen on PTS these things are way too expensive.

    • The Crimson Dragon Accent Set is now available! This is a Rare Grade Accent Set with bonuses for equipping all pieces. You can get set pieces by combining Accent Items or from the Stylish Accent Box.
      This sounds like Pay to Win content

    • We have reduced the number of channels in North America and Europe - but have added a 'leveling up' channel that has an experience bonus for playing levels 1 through 59 (we will extend this to 64 in a future update)
      This sounds awesome.

    Overall sounds like a decent upgrade. Just make sure to nerf Psion in PVP to a point where she doesn't just need 4 skills

  • OMFG! I'M SO HYPED FOR ECLAIR!!!!

  • nice one

  • THE GEMS !! OMG !!

    please do a class re-balance next

    and thanks for the awesome update

    Violets?

  • MPonderMPonder Member ✭✭✭

    Off topic, how much violets it is necessary to get Evo3 on Deathguard?

  • @MPonder said:
    "Added one character slot (for a total of seven slots on new accounts).". Uh, new accounts? Already created will still have 6 slots?

    Fairly certain that ALL accounts will get an extra character slot. They just added that to let anyone thinking of joining into the game for this launch know that they will also obtain it.

    The idea is that if its NOT a new account then you may already have more slots, meaning the total might not be 7 but instead if you already had say 8 slots... now u will have 9.

  • Can't wait :smile:

  • @Smoreceror you guys broke the in game trade for legendary items.
    neither ST or SH dng drop can be traded

  • MPonderMPonder Member ✭✭✭

    Well, guess no more Violets from Fractured Memories dailies

    Still Memory Pages on the Fractured Memories costume event. How long does this event run? A year?
    You really have to fix this.

    //Edit: It also seems that stat comparisons are broken. Look at the DEF values. See screenshot.

    GG for making arena unplayable. Rankings unchangeable until december i guess.

  • edited November 2017

    Exactly how much is the 1-59 server suppose to give? It doesn't seem to be enough to make up for the loss of the purple bar. Feels like it's an added 100% meaning 600% while on blue or 1100% while on purple.

    Edit: nvm. It grants roughly 60% more xp for quests on turn in. Doesn't affect dungeons.

  • YuzuruhaYuzuruha Member, KOL

    Another bug report: Strange stuttering has started in Danger Zones. Didn't happen on PTS; doesn't happen in town. Only inside Zones. Graphics settings don't matter. Still lags horribly.
    Also, the servers seem to be shitting themselves. Everything started to have a small delay.

  • @Yuzuruha same here, bug inside dungeons which never happen before, and some ping jump

    Fractured Memories is the hell on earth i can even count the frames.

  • MPonderMPonder Member ✭✭✭

    If there will be any hotfix, fix the typo on SH first gear set, it is pretty sad seen new player wasting their resources, which is more difficult to get since undergeared chars, on that thing that it says 28% increase in attack which is just 28 per 1500 HP.

  • Can't enter pvp lobby, character just disappears each time I try to enter.

    how can a db - wg- vamp- ex reliant Class to climb ok if it was bug then where is the rebalance of arena deff scale ? allm totally denied they played with the deff scale but because we didnt know this will happen all the answer we got was send us video before and after how the h do we do that no 1 was expecting ninja patch and the worst of all that u and allm denied buffing the deff scale

    no sense so allm are telling we are liars ? but the truth all this nerf and claimed it to be corrected is all lie from the developer to begin with they just want to nerf with good execuses

    so fix that deff scale when december patch hits and player wont tolirate any balance delay now if the arena is dead the game will die just like july-august

  • Is fast stage also going to come to fractured memories?
    I hate going back F3 to town just to go back in again 2 loading screens instead of just an F4, or an npc at the end of boss kill should enable going into fractured memories again.

    F4 option should be added in fractured memories!!! It is pointless to go back to town just to go back in again. Bad on server too.

  • Temp items are unable to extend the duration for accent item stats, please fix it.

    This.... my temp items will die soon V_V

  • You guys nailed the Passkeys and Youla end of dungeon thingy. Everything else seems to be a bit of a disaster. I can't comment on Psion and Leveling event/channel since I haven't tried it yet.

    Violets have been talked and talked about and you've passed on addressing it three patches now. I was getting one crystal a day on average with the FM daily on like 8 alts and with that daily gone I doubt I will be able to average half a crystal a day. Maybe if I burn 6 alts worth of purple RP in Skyship I could get my Necklace evo'd by December, but thats just one piece of three and I'm not gonna burn 6 alts worth of purple in skyship I'll pass on that awful grind. Please do something about Violet Kritium.

    Next is earrings.. okay you guys seem hellbent on making them 'work correctly', and that is okay I suppose, but you shouldn't bug fix a bug that is essential to certain classes and the current state of the game. If anything the Earrings are a positive feature to the game in its current state. The priority on fixing this bug is bewildering to me. It is such a massive change to balance and core gameplay that it needed to be looked at long and hard on the PTS and maybe introduced with the Arena reset (and hopefully defense rework). As a Vamp on floor 143 I was getting the bosses <10 bars often and occasionally killing them but getting denied by the timer which is a feature/bug fix I would be happy if you guys looked at it, but anyways back to earrings, and now I can't dip the bosses below 60 bars because my EX-generation is so low from the nerfed earrings. The way it was added last minute to the patch notes is fishy as well considering the backlash last time the earrings were tweaked with. I'm okay with earrings being less overpowered, but there needs to be compensation in difficulty. The current end game is designed around them being busted.

    Boss damage accent seems pay to win, but whatever it's just 3% so I don't care. But one patch it is 3%, the next new accent might be 5%, then 10%, and finally something like 20%, so hopefully we don't slowly creep into hardcore pay to win.

    Lag is atrocious everywhere I go. Gem dailies, 2/2 dailies, Xanadu, Starhenge, Fractured Memories, Arena, etc. PVP hasn't worked most of the day/night.

    ST is broken for a lot of people and their characters (their entries were taken).

    PVP event cosmetic wings being temporary is a laugh. Yeah, I'll pass on your 'event' if the only interesting thing to me is a cosmetic that expires and vanishes at the start of the new year.

    FM Rewards seem okay. I dunno I still think 12 weeks is too long for a season. I'd prefer lesser rewards if it meant more frequent seasons. Same goes for Arena. I'd rather it reset often even if it meant the rewards weren't as good.

    BoA Soul gems seem pretty good for the long-term health of the game, but something like that should have probably been mentioned in the August roadmap. A lot of the rich got richer in the short term with this change, but I suppose that's okay since they will not be able to capitalize on it due to the earring nerf.

    This bit isn't really related to any changes just something I'd like to vent;

    I have almost no goodwill or benefit of the doubt left for Kritika's development. Which is a shame because I love Kritika it is fun to play and I've met some awesome people online, but the handling of Kritika and its patching has been awful and I'm not sure if it is due to complacency, poor leadership, incompetence, indifference, or whatever, but the game is hemorrhaging players with each update and at least on NA the population seems back to pre Steam levels. I'm not hopeful the game will make it to the end of the roadmap in January or February. I interact with new players probably more than most since I spend my RP usually running people dailies instead of solo Bella grinding, and I run ST for people pretty much cheaper than anyone I know. Heck, I do it for free if they are new and it's their main. They ask me stuff about the end game, I tell them 'it's kinda a drag you grind Bella and letters a lot, but it should get better', and I can't tell them that anymore with a straight face, because I have zero reasons to believe it will get better since every patch has been a mess or disaster in some way. I feel guilty for all people I did tell that it will get better. They should have gotten out while they could. I will probably stick it out until the December update the Arena reset has me intrigued since I hope it will be rebalanced as well, but that will likely end up being another disappointment and probably the end of my time on Kritika.

    Anyways hope your hotfix team is on their A game this patch is a mess.
