New Item Released - Flippers - Allowing the user to hunt on the water of treasure cove, also giving the user access to the Sarandiel World Boss. 


Treasure Cove Released, New World Boss Sarandiel The Water Goddess Released!


Quest Broadcaster Added
We have recoded the quest broadcaster, it will now be 100% functional and more seamless. This will allow players to broadcast to recruit additional players either to help with their quest, or as a paid quest service.

New Scaling Formula to Awakening Turnin Items
We have restructured the formula to be a much more indepth and complex formula for the awakening turnin experience of items. It will now scale MUCH better at every point in the game, making them very relevant for any point in the game, whether awakening level 7 or 700.

New Boss Mechanics Added (that target ranged players) To:
 
Awakened Cassandra, Awakened Sharptooth, Darksteel Cryptlord, Sharptooth, Cassandra (Voodoo Quest).
This is something we wanted to add for awhile now, but essentially we have added ranged boss mechanics that will target "outer circle" players such as Archers and Casters, forcing them to also dodge boss mechanics like melee players.

Awakened Sharptooth and Hideout Quest Released
These quests have a 3 day cooldown with a Tier 5 Quest Box.

Quality of Life Changes
You can now start a conversation with an NPC simply just right clicking them (This is actually already live).
Animated Text will no longer group together (easier to see damage output).
When you open a container, it will no longer open the entire thing.


Misc Changes
Kraken Tentacle health buffed by 800%, Kraken Tentacle Spell Radius' increased by 50%. 
Kraken armor will now be used similar to a prismatic token to enhance reforged mastercrafted equipment into Kraken Armor, keeping it's regrade and rarities.
Lord of the Elements rift removed from rifts.

Descriptions updated on the following items
Dungeon medals
Rune Soil
Catchup Rune Soil
added ore veins (instead of item of an type xxxxx)
MC Blueprints
Dream Matter
Forest Leaf
Glowing Forest Leaf
Enchanted Forest Leaf
Companions
Rift Warrior Doll

Patch 12.3.0 (Expected Teaser)

08 May 2018 (23:41) by Gamemaster Knighter

Patch 12.3.0 (Massive Content Patch)
Friday, May 18th

*Additional Teaser Images to be added May 9th*
**More will likely be added to these patch notes prior to release**
***Things may be added/removed before patch based on if we have delays on something***
Sarandiel has left and betrayed us... she regained her power based on a book of lies, acquiring goddess herbs to increase her power. She has begun preparing for her siege on the Forgotten Islands. The Sarandiel Event NPC will be available until this patch goes live at which time she wont be available anymore. 

New Endgame Content Added
(We will be delaying the release of one of the forgotten islands and it's world boss/weapons to add more unique and less repetitive content to it due to high level feedback - everything else will still release)
2 New Forgotten Islands added, 30 New Creatures, 2 New World Bosses, 2 New Weapon Sets (Forgemaster), 4 New Solo Dungeons, 2 Awakened Quests (Sharptooth and Amazon Hideout), Tier 2 Soul Runes, and Multiple Puzzle Quests (Primarily on the two new islands)
  



Client Windows Overhauled
(We will be delaying this till the next patch, as we plan to do a full client overhaul and feel it would be better to release it all at once, rather than in chunks at each time, we plan to release this by end of month of next week in depending on development times for the rest of the windows)
We have put alot of time into making more aesthetically pleasing in-game windows for commonly used windows such as Dungeon Finder, Stats, Highscores, Menu, and will be adding more functionality to the Quest Window, as well as adding a large and functional Guild Management Panel. For this patch, we will be attempting to have all in and configured, however our main focus is in order of how we listed them and some may not make it until a patch after. 

Quest Broadcaster Added
