Lamannia will be coming down for an update on April 18 between 10am and 2pm EST (GMT -5).
First, I would like to thank everyone for your participation and feedback so far! I know we have run into some hitches (*frowns at the Pando installer*), but it is great to hear from so many players!
Tomorrow's Lamannia build features one major adjustment to the Enhancement Trees: We are lowering the number of Action Points spent in the Trees required to access the Top Tier Enhancements. (Class Enhancement Trees will require 0, 5, 10, 20, and 30 Action Points spent and Racial Enhancement Trees will require 0, 5, 10, and 15 Action Points spent.) Note that while this change would allow you to take Tier 5 abilities from two Class Trees, that is not intended. We will eventually add the "You can only take Tier 5 Enhancements from a single Tree" restriction.
Please keep in mind that we are trying to make one major adjustment at a time since this is the best way to determine what adjustments are most effective.
We have decided to leave the Artificer, Cleric, Fighter, and Ranger Enhancement Trees on Lamannia for continued preview. Additionally, all Enhancement trees will be available for the third and final week of the Alpha Preview for Enhancements.
Please note that adjustments and fixes to the individual Enhancements or Enhancement Trees currently available on Lamannia will not be present in tomorrow's Lamannia build. This is primarily because any recently implemented adjustments and fixes would not give Quality Assurance proper time to verify that it works and does not break something else.
The adjusted Preview Schedule is as follows:
Week 2 (April 18 – 24):
- Favored Soul
Week 3 (April 25 – May 1):
- ALL other Enhancement Trees
Please note that to retain more focused feedback from the Surveys, only the Druid, Favored Soul, Rogue, Sorcerer, and Wizard Surveys will be available from Thursday to Monday morning (VERY early Monday morning).
Keep in mind that this is an EARLY PREVIEW! There will be bugs!
