    So far, I think the graphics are fantastic, the layout and lighting very good, and the story line and drops reasonable.

    Having Hall of the Dead with no reset possible is bogus, but I guess it will force us to farm the new maps instead. A little manipulation, perhaps? :rolleyes:

    Leaving a map is not aborting a quest. Please change the wording.

    Dear BP:

    Thank you for increasing the values of some gems. This made me happy.

    Well, the new CV system really needs some tweaks. It underestimates even higher lvl items of the same unique.


    It also seems to be greatly underestimating the critical value. I have a weapon adornment with 900+ critical rate and it gives me just 520 CV points, whereas another adornment with just 89 DMG gives 1400+ points.

    I notice there is 5 gem slots on the level 48 versus 4 on the level 50. If you add a slot to the level 50 version, let us know if the CV goes up.

    I think there is a problem in CV computation. Check these
    Even upgrading the left one by one level, it reaches 39 Critical hit value, while the right one starts from 42.
    It seems that price and melting values are better estimation for the item value.

    It may also count glyphs... at which point, this becomes even funnier and proves what I said elsewhere about how useless the CV system is.

    It is supposed to be an item comparison feature, but largely fails at that.

    Well, it seems like the RoL/RoD thing got an answer: old items stay if you did get them, but aren't available anymore.

    Now for the fragments part... I was at the very start of my next Q map, so for me, it's 500+ frags, but I can wholeheartedly understand the frustration of those who farmed a lot and got the same thing, which to them is close to nothing. Bogus.

    This is their explanation... Materi Fragments erased - Compensation :confused:.

    Actually yes, adding a 5th slot increased the CV value to 1644. Why the number of slots affects the CV value of the item is beyond me. The gems do not affect the CV value of the item, but they do increase the overall CV value of the character.

    Well, it needs work. I do believe that the CV system has some potential though. Once balanced, it would be good for PvP matchmaking for example, if countermeasures are taken against its abuse. It really would not be nice if I just removed my weapon to drop my CV by 30.000 in order to be matched with a centurion or a knight.

    I think that the old max values are figured in and the new max values. The old items prior to the update had lower values for some attributes. And if it where picked up in this update would have higher stats. And for the two identical items one clearly has an extra gem slot. If the two where equal when you picked it up and one had 3 gem slots and the other 4, who would choose the one with 3? We can test this on a white item that will cost up 10 anders...

    Read the patch notes. They are available, but not from quests or from the shop. You get them as random drops from Bearach and Mortis.

    P.S. I'm still waiting to see the actual values... the CMs promised that they would release the max values after R158 as opposed to the teaser above.

    It is not a bug ... they changed it with the second version on TS.
    You get no items from the quests anymore ... you can only purchase them with materi fragments.

    I'm sorry to be so negative on my first post ever on the forum, but in these first couple of months of play everything has been really nice and enjoyable, so at least there's that.

    This new update is pretty much horrible in almost every possible way (ok, the gems got better, but this is really minor compared to the rest): the very first maps already feature incredibly hard boss fights, where the average player like myself (clad in legendary items from head to toe, mind you) has to throw tons of resources out of the window (mostly andermants to revive, but higher tier essences too) with huge chances of still failing. I haven't been able to kill Grimmag more than once in 2 days, and often stop right away at the ghostly knight.

    You stripped away all the fun from forming random bands of heroes to face difficult (but honestly so) maps: right now, you either team with über monsters of players, or everyone must be premium to have access to loads of extra resources and free revives.

    All of this reminds me quite clearly of what happened when I first met this game a few years ago, when the Crystals of Truth were still in the game: it took me one week to smell the greed beyond the concept, and left soon after. Is the Greed Monsters back amongst you, Developpers of Drakania? Beware of its clutches!
