Let's start with a note about the patch status and testing: Testing changes of this magnitude internally or with Pendragon test events can never match our observations of these changes in a live environment. Such is the nature of MMORPG development. We’re on day three of Patch 1.115 and the information and feedback we received in these three days has already surpassed the volume of feedback we’ve received over the months, and all four Pendragon versions of 1.115 combined. 1.115 will undergo more changes, and we would like you to be part of those decisions. We’ll have more avenues beyond feedback to speak with you directly, answer your questions, and provide updates.
Q: Hi, Is there any plans in the pipeline to revamp or revist PvE? As a returning player from 6 years ago, it does sadden me to see that PvE has all but died other than farming scales/Glass.
I do like the new Artifact rules, because that doesnt restore some of the PvE content, but i would like to see a little attention on PvE? Thanks
A: Short answer: Yes.
Longer answer: First and foremost - our near future plans are to observe action in New Frontiers, listen to your feedback, and tweak the changes accordingly.
Following this, we’d like to look at what we like to call the ‘top 10%’ of PvE encounters (The most difficult and rewarding encounters in the game – such as ML10, Summoners Hall, Dragons etc..) and update them with new mechanics and new rewards. We have received a good deal of positive feedback about the fully – leveled Artifacts because it makes those encounters worthwhile again. (That great idea, by the way, was submitted by a member of the community!)
We’ve a long list of changes and updates (as well as fine-tuning the updated New Frontiers) – so all of the PvE changes will not appear in one patch. We’ll do our best to make meaningful progress on this front as we move into the next few patch cycles.
Q: right now there is no point in defending the central keeps as you can still port to the new BKs via the portal pad, will there be any incentive to defend?
A: Incentives to defend all keeps and towers, not just the center keep is something we are spending a lot of time looking at right now. We knew going into 1.115 that more would need to be done on the Keep, Tower, and Relic front and so this is not at all unexpected. We have some plans already to give players a reason to defend and take these keeps and towers again. That said, we also want to observe how things go and listen to feedback for other potentially great ideas on this front. At the least, our next update will begin to address this concern.
Q: Can the portal ceremony be changed back into a simple port stone? It is a pain if one of your group misses the port, which is why I believe it was removed in OF.
A: Updates to the Portal Ceremony are currently being discussed. One of the primary objectives in 1.115 was to facilitate faster action, and while a three minute wait on a Portal Ceremony may not seem like much – we understand that it can be very frustrating while in-game, particularly if players are standing by waiting. This feedback is among the strongest we’ve received and it will not be ignored. Players will see requests for feedback on the ways we could possibly change the Portal Ceremony, and we’d like your weigh-in.
Q: Will there be an in game poll to find out with reliability whether or not the player base likes the NNF changes? I feel it would be helpful in shaping future changes, especially if the results were released.
A: Yes, as quickly as we can make it happen. Until we do, as mentioned before, we would like to open up more avenues for communication as we understand that some players do not participate on forums, and are hesitant to leave feedback. We have heard a great deal from the vocal minority – and they’ve been very helpful, but we need to hear from... [Read More]
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the next step in the evolutions of Dark Age of Camelot's Frontiers!
As you make your way onto the server and into the various areas in the game that have undergone recent changes, please remember a few important things:
- The Portal Ceremony is now active on the PvE side of the Primary Borderkeeps (Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen). Standing on the Portal Pad will get you teleported to your Realm's Portal Keep - so if you do not intend to teleport, please be mindful of where you stand!
Please click the 'More' link to read on!
- The New Frontiers have been reset. All Relics are back in their home shrines, and all standard Keeps are level 1 and unclaimed - so get out there and secure a Keep!
- Please remember that Speed of the Realm will overwrite the new mount speed , so if you have a horse and armor with the speed bost, you will need to drop Realm Speed to experience the effect..
- If you wish to obtain a fully-leveled Artifact, you must first delete the unleveled version from your inventory prior to completing the Artifact encounter. If you have the Artifact in your inventory, you will not be granted quest credit for the fully-leveled Artifact.
- Rites of Spring has ended. If you have completed the quest, you may still turn it in to the appropriate NPC to obtain your reward.
We are looking forward to your feedback, so please take some time to play and experience the various changes and let us know how you feel!
We thank you for your patience and loyalty and we will see you in the NEW New Frontiers!!
