    Default U51 Preview 3 (10/19 - 10/21)

    Disclaimer
    Everything seen on the preview server, Lamannia, is not final and is subject to change or removal before live release.

    Hello, all! Preview 3* of Update 51 is open! Changes from Preview 1 appear in blue. It is expected to remain open until sometime in the afternoon (Eastern Time) of Thursday, October 21st. This will include a dev event on Wednesday, the 20th from 8pm-10pm, where designers will be on hand to discuss your feedback.

    This preview contains the following features:
    Epic Destiny Overhaul Overview
    Feat and Level-Up Changes for Epics
    Divine Crusader
    Draconic Incarnation
    Exalted Angel
    Fatesinger
    Fury of the Wild
    Grandmaster of Flowers
    Legendary Dreadnought
    Magus of the Eclipse
    Primal Avatar
    Shadowdancer
    Shiradi Champion
    Unyielding Sentinel



    In addition to these major features, the preview also contains the following miscellaneous changes and bugfixes:

    Character
    • There is a new Epic Past Life feat, to accompany the new Magus of the Eclipse Tree. Eclipse Power: Arcane Past Life Stance: +1 Spell Penetration per stack of this Past Life. Passive Bonus: +1% Absorption of Acid, Cold, Electric, and Fire damage per stack of this feat. Like other Epic Past Life feats, this can be acquired up to three times.
    • Improved Zombie Form now properly penalizes your attack speed.
    • Knight's Training now increases the threat range of Maces and Warhammers by an additional 1
    • Swords to Plowshares now increases the threat range of Quarterstaves by an additional 1
    • Warlock Enlightened Spirit's Eldritch Aura has been rebuilt to eliminate a number of bugs and assist in better future balance for Warlocks. It is no longer a toggle; instead, it is cast in a manner similar to Cleric Radiant Servant Aura. The aura lasts near-infinitely and through death, but must be recast on logging in. Casting it turns off other Eldritch Blast styles. Turning other Eldritch Blast styles on dispels the Aura spell. It still cannot be used while in Knight's Transformation or Epic Defensive Fighting, but the ability to use Aura at the same time as the Master of Knowledge feat has been restored. In almost all other working-as-intended respects, the Aura should work as it did before.

    Spells
    • Several changes and optimizations have been made to spells that can affect multiple targets. This should resolve several issues with AoE spells connecting while impacting with shallow water, as well as having a much better time making contact through uneven terrain.
    • Alchemist's Sanctified Vial spell now requires 1 level of Cleric, Favored Soul, or Paladin OR any points spent in the new Divine Crusader, Exalted Angel, or Unyielding Sentinel Epic Destinies
    • The Enervation spell now applies a Negative Damage Over Time effect
    • The following spells are now in spell books:
      • Tsunami - 9 drd
      • Stormrage - 8 drd
      • Celestial Bombardment - 9 fvs/clr
      • Insidious Spores - 7 drd
      • Arcane Tempest - 9 wiz/sor, 6 art
      • Divine Wrath - 9 fvs/clr

    Items
    • You may now trade Tomes of Fate for Purified Eberron Dragonshards
    • The values of Assassinate DC bonuses found on items has increased significantly.

    Misc
    • Toggles now remember their state better through logout and login
    • The Fatespinner will now remind you when you haven't unlocked all the new ED trees
    • The Gnome and Deep Gnome trees core 2 and 4s now have the correct icons.
    • There is a new tab on the character sheet that contains your Epic Destiny abilities.
    • All characters level 20 and higher at the time of this Update will not be able to change Feats with Fred until they perform a Lesser Reincarnation (or any other form of Reincarnation). This is to prevent invalid build scenarios and situations where certain feats simply cannot be swapped.
    • All characters level 20 and higher at the time of this Update have been granted a Bound-to-Character +5 Lesser Heart of Wood.

    Known Issues
    n/a


    * Our initial preview was before Update 50, so we're referring to that as our early preview and numbering these current previews accordingly.

    This update! They are in this preview in the Test Dojo shop and the Epic/Legendary Altar - the items themselves are not 100% done and still need a good polishing, so if you have feedback, please let me know

    Have the adjustments to monsters made it in this round?

    Will there be full descriptions of the various ED trees like before so we can see if any changes have been made? Specifically for those just introduced in Preview 2?

    Awesome- Thank you! Curious to see the perfected items so one day (when I’m 90) and pull a nebula frag I could do some crafting!

    Just to be sure I'm setting expectations appropriately, the Perfected versions of these items are not completed nor visible within this preview. They are still slated to release with the rest of the Sands loot, though.

    Well thanks for getting started on Lev30 gear at least- we’ll see the artifacts soon enough.

    Thanks for update!

    Any chance any of the items will have a hidden ability the community has to figure out?

    Those hunts are always fun to try to work out on little more to go on than "there is a top sneaky thing yet to be solved"

    Will there be alternate methods of getting the nebula fragment. I have ran the quests to ransack and know others that have done the same. I feel the same as when I farmed the shard from the demon queen preraid for epic spell storing ring. Probably ran that quest a thousand times before I got it.

    The grind for this is starting to feel rediculous, please add a way to purchase this with runes, hay, something.

    Default An update error occured

    "Unable to decrypt and de-serialize the data downloaded"

    I had no problems installing preview 2, but I get the above error every time I start the test client with this preview.

    Insidious Spores - 7 drd

    Druids have no way to pump poison or repair spell crit or caster levels with their seasons herald enhancement tree.

    Same as druids have no way to really focus on the poison half of thorn in primal avatar.

    Can we get that fixed somehow like maybe add poison spell power, caster levels and crit to seasons herald winter?

    As much as I would love to play a swarm/spore/thorn druid, there are not really heroic enhancements to support it currently compared for fire or cold

    FvS heal wall still isn't working right with this preview. Whomever the heal wall is targeted on doesn't get healed until they move out and back into the healing wall.

    Default Legendary Sands items

    Thank you Lynnabell for adding the Legendary Sands items to the preview!
    I noticed the list is missing the Legendary Ring of Spell Storing. Will this be like the SOS and only go up to Epic?
    Also, the Legendary Wolf Whistle has the Epic summon. Are there plans to make that Legendary? Once we get past the lvl 30 cap, that epic dog won't last long.
    There seems to be a difference on the Augment slots on these items too. Some have a single Augment slot while others have 2. Will we see this updated so all Legendary Sands items will get two Augment slots?
    Sorroco weapon needs to have Legendary Sirroco.
    Staff of Arcane power needs the caster level increased.
    Ancient Vulkoorim Dagger has an abysmally low DC for Giant Slayer: DC25
    Vulkoorim Dervish robe has a low stat on it's Fortification: 30%

    Thank you,
    Chickenplucker, Argo

    Could you please take a look at the Legendary Sirocco?

    Here's a post I made addressing it.

    Niac's biting cold/Eladar's cost 20 SP while Enervation costs 25 SP.
    It will be not welcomed in a damage purpose. How about letting it does 1 neg level always instead and reducing SP costs by 5 in return? Or just reducing SP cost by 5 and keep the current version...
