Patch Notes - December 5, 2018 Archer Update

edited December 5 in Patch Notes

The Archer update has arrived!

ARCHER

  • A new character arrives in Kritika Online: The Archer! The Archer’s skills function similarly to the Psion’s. The Archer’s skill abilities change based on her skill level.
    -- We're still working out some issues with Archer events and the starting leveling curve (damage is currently set too low for the first few levels). We will have fixes for these items in place for the full release!
  • Added a free character slot.

DANGER ZONES

  • New Difficulty—Eeri’s Library, Dusk Pirate Den, Eternal Library, and Secret Warehouse all have a new, easier “Hard” difficulty. Each zone has a chance to drop a new Challenger accessory.
  • Three new Challenger Zones have appeared!
  • Noxious Rainforest
  • Perumagion Spellfurnace
  • Burning Highland
  • Increased the drop rate of Ghostly Scales from Shattered Table.
  • The Ultimate Zones for Xanadu are now located in an “Ultimate Zone” tab within the Danger Zone Highway.
  • Updated the Daily Zone rewards.
  • Players can acquire a Daily Zone Coin for each run (two times per day). Additionally, several rewards are updated for different Danger Zones. Get the full details below.
    -- Monday reward: Unchanged.
    -- Tuesday reward: Increased to 220 Reappraisal Scrolls.
    -- Wednesday reward: Your choice of up to 6 resurrection stones or 30 Blessed Elixir I.
    -- Thursday reward: Increased to 220 Recalculation Scrolls.
    -- Friday reward: Increased to 30 Inferior Kagerfeld Badges.
    -- Saturday, and Sunday: Unchanged.
  • Trade Daily Coins to Alandra for 250 Fixit Hammers.
  • Memory Shards can now drop in Fractured Memories above level 200.
  • Etherforce Crystals drop in Fractured Memories at level 80 and above. The drop rate increases every 20 levels.

GEAR

  • Two new kinds of accessories are introduced in this update: Memorial and Challenger.
  • Memorial accessories are acquired from Lilis with Memory Shards. They are base tier 13 and cursed, so they need to undergo purification (evolution). Through the evolution process, they will become tier 14 accessories, which can be evolved once more.
  • Challenger accessories are acquired from new Challenger Zones, or from evolution of Evo1 Antique accessory. They are base tier 14 and can be evolved once more.
  • The Daylight Helioflare weapon has been rebalanced. The Human and Fey damage bonus from the Evo1 Daylight weapon has been added to increase its power.

QUESTS

After end of the quest “[Skyship Arcadia: East Deck] Suppression,” and at level 65, all main quest lines are rearranged. We have been monitoring player advancement after hitting level 65 and found multiple opportunities to improve the gameplay flow. We have changed all quest lines after level 65 to be smoother and more focused. All characters are eligible for a reward at level 70.

Now players will play the main quest line in this succession: Starhenge -> Xanadu side stories -> Abe/Titan story quest (not an Ultimate zone) -> Windhome. And following the quest line, suitable quest rewards will be bestowed to raise character CR more smoothly. If you’ve already completed these quests, try them again and get the new rewards!
Additionally, we added weekly quests for Ultimate zones. This should create good synergy with Hard difficulty Ultimate Zones.

KNOWN ISSUES

Update:
* Level 65 item rewards are swapped for Monk and Prodigy. We are working on a fix for this now, aimed for next week.

    Good job guys. Looking like a good patch! :)

    Probably one of the best patches to date, lots of quality of life changes, actual gear progression, improvements for newer players aswell, this patch has it all.

  • KattyKiraKattyKira Member, KOL

    Like the class, Love the patch improvements to the overall game. Especially to the EMP Store, a big spender on there... Thanks for reducing the price of items sold a lot (no sarcasm intended). But also thanks for making it a better straight forward 65 to 70 progression too.

    However, curious how long the servers will be down for to update the servers tomorrow... anyone know how long they will be down for?

  • PP597W94LAPP597W94LA Member, KOL

    this update will help the new player to take damage.

    more after they see how the drop rate of the set and item for evo should drop out of the game in the same way ....

    even if they do set the set +19 (5 evo 1 dusk love, 3 antique, evo 4 themalar or evo 2 empress) maximum that goes to handle and 2,200k with by - 9 full purple badge slot. (taking out the bonus of pet and soul gem rank 5 ~ 7)

    the strongest dg of the game has 8,000,000 cr and the game is trying to leave the players with a maximum of 1,500,000 cr.

    these updates are very top ^^

  • ReiatzuReiatzu Member, KOL ✭✭✭

    This patch has a bit for everyone. Looks great!

  • YMF7T4L7TPYMF7T4L7TP Member, KOL

    Im still a bit worry why they reduce all their prices.... will enmasse earn enough money from the game im thinking then, to keep it in shape. Also if you can get easy 4mil cr, im wondering if its not a bit out of controll, we will see i gues then.

  • SpooklesSpookles Member, KOL ✭✭✭
    edited December 5

    What time is this patch? Logged in and got no download/update and saw nothing new on the server. All the old events are over also.

    edit: never mind, looks like the patch stuff doesn't start for another few minutes. They don't say how long the downtime will be approx. though?

  • JetwynJetwyn Member, KOL

    Some of the stuff looks pretty good. It is a bit annoying that we are now seeing ANOTHER class release while there is still no Noble upgrade for the Gunmage class.

    the price reduction is more for the small spenders, the whales will spend the same amount and just get more of it

  • RomanHolidayRomanHoliday Member, Player Moderators mod

    Haven't had the opportunity to talk a lot about this patch on the forums but I like the direction that this is heading! New players will hopefully have an easier time getting to a reasonable point and enjoying the game with the rest of us. Also enjoying the quality of life changes as well, here's to more updates like this!

  • SpooklesSpookles Member, KOL ✭✭✭

    The price changes are nice. I would NEVER consider paying like 20-30$ for a repair hammer before. Lower prices means I am more willing to buy stuff.

  • UnholyOne77UnholyOne77 Member, KOL

  • FendiFendi Member, KOL

    Thank you for this amazing update. I have a question though, what is the point of the daily quest for Eternal Library if you can only enter the instance 3x?

  • J6FMCKRXXYJ6FMCKRXXY Member, KOL

    So the 'account moveable' tag was broken recently, making a lot of items unable to be placed in account storage. ETA on a fix?

    Are you sure you're "laughing" and not "Raging"? I personally loved the update contrary to your opinion. In my years of experience with playing games, when there is an update, bugs will definitely exist. The update was just released, instead of criticizing them, which is not helpful by any means, report the "bugs" you think you found. That way they can have a fix for it. Gosh, so negative.

    "Challenger accessories are acquired from new Challenger Zones, or from evolution of Evo1 Antique accessory. They are base tier 14 and can be evolved once more."

    for the future new accessories can be account movable before equip or bind on pick up ?, and why the new accessories do not become evo1 if evolution from the evo1 element accessories. from tier 14 to tier 14 after evo, what it is like that ? or there will be improvements in the future.
