Priest overhaul testing

Recommended Posts

 

Alrighty, time for testing!

 

I want to strongly remind you all that this is testing only, and the values inside can and will change according to feedback, so give your feedback!

 

We'll be on hand to provide support with many factors, if you need help with anything grabbing a GM in IRC is the fastest way

 

We've added the ability to set your faith, and spawn priest items and vesselled gems. 

 

The priest overhaul is on Baphomet only, not on Oracle, to get to Baphomet you will need to take the portal from the oracle starter deed. 

 

Gary is currently not a deity on test, we'll likely be adjusting this later. 

As usual, test client found here:

New Spells

  • Cleanse [33 faith, 26 favor] (Fo) - Targets tiles. Converts a 3x3 area of Mycelium or Mycelium trees back to normal grass or normal tree. Also works on dirt, converting dirt tiles to grass.
  • Essence Drain [61 faith, 100 favor] (Libila) - Targets items. Enchant that serves as Libila’s version of Life Transfer. However, the healing done is only 1/3rd of what Fo’s Life Transfer grants. To counterbalance, Essence Drain also deals a wound at 10% of base damage as internal damage.
  • Focused Will [31 faith, 10 favor] (Magranon) - Targets wounds. Heals 5% to 20% damage, based on cast power. Drains stamina from the caster equivalent to the amount healed. Amount of stamina drained is reduced by body stamina, similar to all other stamina drains. Can be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.

      • New Passive - Befriend Monster. Monsters are no longer aggressive towards Libila priests with 60 faith and 30 favor. This does not apply to all hostile creatures, as some are not considered monsters (like bears).

  • Non-Religious Demises (Animal, Dragon, Human, Selfhealer)
    • Animal’s Demise - Now named “Animal Demise” and grants a 3% damage bonus against non-legendary animals (cats, bears, lions, etc). No longer grants a hit chance increase or crit bonus.
    • Human’s Demise - Now named “Human Demise” and grants a 3% damage bonus towards players and humans (including guards). No longer grants a hit chance increase or crit bonus.

    • Selfhealer’s Demise - Now named “Monster Demise” and grants a 3% damage bonus against non-legendary monsters (trolls, goblins, etc). No longer grants a hit chance increase or crit bonus.
  • Religious Demises & Protection - All of these demise and protection enchants have been removed from existing items. They will no longer apply to weapons and armour. These spells instead been reworked into the following spells to enchant jewelry.
    • All of these spells conflict with each other and Nolocate, meaning you can only have one of these enchants on a single piece of jewelry at a time.
    • Stacking two or more of an identical enchant across multiple slots results in a penalty to each one. This penalty is 33% reduced effectiveness for two identical enchants and 50% reduced effectiveness for three identical enchants.

Rite Rework

  • Prayers and sermons now grant favor to the template deity instead of having a new pool for every demigod.
  • Rites now function off of template god favor pool when cast by a demigod.
  • Rites no longer require a specific amount of players in local to cast, and their deity favor cost is no longer dependant on the amount of players on the server.
  • All Rites now create a 24 hour window for players to claim the reward. Upon casting, any player of the same template deity as the caster can pray at any altar or applicable location (for example, Magranon can pray on rock) to obtain the bonus.
  • All Rites now grant 5 hours of sleep bonus and 0.2% towards 100 of a certain characteristic.

    • Rite of Death - Now grants 0.2% Soul Strength towards 100 and 5 hours of sleep bonus.

 

 

Healing Rework

  • Healing spells now work off a global healing resistance debuff. This debuff is applied based on how much health is healed on the target, and will reduce all further healing on the target from any of the listed healing sources based on how much time remains on the debuff. The maximum time is about 20 minutes, and the reduction scales linearly from that mark. For example, if you have 10 minutes on your healing resistance, you’ll receive heals at 50% effectiveness.
  • Cure Light - Now heals 15% + up to 5% more based on cast power. Previously healed 15%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Medium - Now heals 30% + up to 10% more based on cast power. Previously healed 30%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Serious - No longer heals a wound fully. Instead, heals a wound for up to 90% + up to 30% more based on cast power. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Heal - Now heals 40% to 200% based on cast power. Previously healed 30% to 150%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating they were healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles.
  • Life Transfer - Healing and functionality remains the same, but now works off the global healing resistance.
  • Light of Fo - Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Still limited to 5 wounds. Cast power heavily impacts the severity of wounds that are able to be healed. Cast time increased from 10 seconds to 15 seconds.
  • Scorn of Libila - Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Wounds healed limit increased from 2 to 3 per target. Now heals at minimum 3 wounds even if no damage is dealt. Each target that is dealt damage now allows up to 3 additional wounds to be healed, increased from the previous 1. Difficulty reduced from 60 to 50. Area of effect adjusted to 7x7 - 11x11 based on cast power.

 

Spell Resistances

  • Many offensive spells in the game now also have their own resistances. These function identically to the healing resistance above, but have much lower maximum durations for their resistance values.
    • Drain Health - Resistance applies to both the offensive and defensive portions of the spell. For example, using this to heal will give you a resistance to Drain Health, which not only reduces healing received from consecutive casts, but also reduces damage taken from others attempting to Drain Health you. Resistance is capped to 5 minutes.
    • Fireheart - Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes.
    • Fire Pillar - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
    • Fungus Trap - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
    • Hypothermia - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Inferno and Worm Brains].
    • Ice Pillar - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
    • Inferno - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Worm Brains].
    • Pain Rain - Resistance capped to 4 minutes.
    • Rotting Gut - Resistance capped to 2 minutes.
    • Scorn of Libila - Resistance capped to 5 minutes. Applies to damage portion only. Healing is affected by global Healing Resistance.
    • Shard of Ice - Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes.
    • Smite - Resistance capped to 5 minutes.
    • Tentacles - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
    • Tornado - Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
    • Worm Brains - Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Inferno].
       

Locate Rework

  • Locate Soul - Now has a 2 minute cooldown. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Nolocate - No longer able to be cast on creatures/players. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Lurker in the Dark - Now has a maximum radius of 100 tiles. This is reduced by up to 50 tiles based on the highest equipped Nolocate jewelry of a player. This is reduced again to 25 tiles when it’s a stealthed player.
  • Locate Resistance
    • When located successfully by another player, you obtain “Locate Resistance” with a duration based on the highest Nolocate power jewelry you have equipped. This resistance prevents you from being located by any player until it expires. At 100 nolocate, this duration is 5 minutes. Being located by other players in your kingdom will not apply a cooldown, even if you have Nolocate.
    • If the casted locate spell does not beat your nolocate (the power is lower than your jewelry), the Locate Resistance is not applied and the locate spell fails. The locate spell will still receive a cooldown.
    • The messaging is identical whether you resist a locate due to having a higher nolocate power or have Locate Resistance. This means players cannot know for certain whether you are resistant or whether their specific cast did not defeat the threshold required.

 

Specific Spell Changes

  • Aura of Shared Pain - Removed from Magranon. Added to Libila.
  • Bearpaws - Tripled the damage dealt with unarmed attacks when used on a player. Bonus damage for non-players remains the same.

  • Oakshell - Maximum damage reduction decreased from 80% to 70%. Maximum glance rate decreased from 40% to 33.3%. Can now only be cast on players on PvP servers.

  • Tangleweave - Reworked into essentially a new spell.
    • Tangleweave now has a 3 second cast time and costs 15 favor. When cast, Tanglewave will interrupt the target’s spell cast, and apply the increased spell cast timer debuff for a short duration. Can now be cast in combat.

  • Venom - Favor cost reduced from 120 to 100. Damage conversion now occurs before glance calculations. Still deals poison wounds, but those poison wounds do not inflict poison status (that causes the instant kill). The 20% damage penalty has now been scaled based on cast power, with 100 power completely cancelling out the damage penalty altogether.

  • Wrath of Magranon - Reworked into an area damage spell.
    • Now deals damage to structures in a 3x3 area. It also inflicts crushing wounds to all creatures within the area.

 

Player Demigods

  • Demigods now have a “template” deity that their religion is based on, selected from the four base gods.
    • These templates affect the affinities that each demigod provides. For example, demigods with Vynora as their template will be able to pray on water and get double favor from sacrificing pottery. Any demigod following a different template is unable to obtain these affinities.
    • Priests can now link with any priest of the same template. For example, this means that any Libila priest can link with any other blacklight demigod (Tosiek, Nathan, and Gary). Any priests of Tosiek, Nathan, and Gary can also link with each other.
  • The existing demigods have the following templates:
    • Tosiek, Nathan, Gary: Libila
    • Nahjo: Fo
    • Paaweelr: Vynora
    • Smeagain: Magranon
  • Demigod passives have been rerolled with the exception of the template passives (listed above).
  • Passives are now more likely to align with the template deity, but some will be outliers to create interesting combinations.
  • Demigod spells have been completely rerolled using a new system to distribute the spells.
  • The new system uses the affinities of the demigod to determine what type of spells they should obtain, as well as avoiding overpowered or useless combinations that render a god too strong or too weak.

 

 

Miscellaneous & Messaging

  • Spell List Improvements - The Spell List window has been completely overhauled and has many new features to offer.
    • Larger Window - The window that displays is now larger. This should prevent having to resize the window in order to see all the passives and spells available to you.
    • Passives Display - Now shows how strong your connection to your deity is (based on your faith level). This is then followed by the passives the deity is currently granting you.
    • Spells Sorted - Spells have now been placed into a sortable table. You can now sort spells by faith requirement, favor, name, or description. Targets are also available, but not exceptionally functional.
    • Updated Descriptions - All spells now have new descriptions which should more accurately represent how they function.
  • Enchanting Improvements
    • Certain spells now target specific item types instead of any item. Attempting to target any other item than a valid target will result in an error.
      • Armour - Aura of Shared Pain, Web Armour
      • Weapon - Bloodthirst, Animal Demise, Human Demise, Legendary Demise, Monster Demise, Essence Drain, Flaming Aura, Frostbrand, Life Transfer, Mind Stealer, Nimbleness, Rotting Touch, Venom
      • Jewelry - Blaze, Corrosion, Glacial, Nolocate, Toxin, Acid Protection, Fire Protection, Frost Protection, Poison Protection
      • Pendulum - Lurker in the Dark, Lurker in the Deep, Lurker in the Woods.
    • Attempting to enchant an item that has a conflicting enchant now shows which enchant is blocking the cast.
      • The longsword is already enchanted with something that would negate the effect.
      • The longsword is already enchanted with Blessings of the Dark, which would negate the effect of Wind of Ages.
    • Effect descriptions for many enchants have been updated to better reflect their function.
  • Certain potions from bloods and similar now have an effect:
    • Salve of Frost - Converts damage from a weapon to frost.
    • Salve of Fire - Converts damage from a weapon to fire.
    • Potion of Acid - Converts damage from a weapon to acid.
  • Damage from all spells, including karma spells , now uses Soul Strength in damage reduction calculations instead of Body Strength.
  • Damage dealt to non-players is now modified heavily. Targets can take anywhere from 4x to 0x damage based on their armour and Soul Strength.
  • Maximum cast power for champions on home servers has been increased from 30 to 50.
  • Tile spells now use multicolor line messaging for casting, similar to creature casts.
  • Casting a combat spell such as Fireheart, Drain Health, and similar on an enemy will now display an on-screen message for both the caster and target when the cast begins and finishes.
  • Pillar spells (Fire Pillar, Fungus Trap, Ice Pillar, and Tentacles) no longer display a combat message when they deal damage.
  • Creatures will now display their spell effects on examine. This is limited to same kingdom, allied, or neutral targets only.
    • Frantic charge has been cast on it, so it has greater speed. [83]

So...is Nahjo now useless for pve?  'cos that would be a pretty bad nerf after so long.

 

Also, any changes to disintegrate to make removing mine reinforcements off-deed on pve easier?  The current methods seem to involve either dumping or extending a deed or exploiting power meditation spells.

From what I have seen it's nerfed a bit. Its not that good for casting  weapons anymore. Can still used as utilities priest I think genesis and strongwall and courier are still his spells not sure. But you have option for free swap :)

tbh I don't know why would someone use demigod priest now original god's seems more better choice now which I gues Is not that bad. They seems to have some auxiliary uses to main gods if you don't have 100 faith yet for batteries that can do some extra spells mostly imo. Will still have to login to test server again to check

  • Bloodthirst - Epic changes to Bloodthirst now apply to all servers. Now deals up to 33% increased damage at 10k instead of modifying base damage.

literally the worst change in the history of changes

This really hurts, if you've already done all the work required for 10k and get the same dmg increase that someone gets for a cast.

 

Should at least be 40% or 33% + bleeding damage ticks, or something unique

 

Maybe turn it to a 10% increase but stackable with other damage enchants.

Any plans to enchanting gems with spells , like strongwall or molle sence  ?  you would need a gem of equal or higher QL for the cast ..

I know you can buy globe from trader , but that's insta cast also , gem would still take the 3 year cast ( 3 minutes )    , can the time be reduce also to say 2 minutes for pve ?

 

Gems could use some love other then using them to lvl or store power ....

Does it mean I won't be able to cast Oakshell on myself on PvE? That would be a shame, cause I really enjoy playing my naked berserk monk...

 

 

I'm glad priest overhaul is finally happening. Well done!

I am getting the feeling that it's the same on PvE but on PvP you can only cast it on other players and not on horses by example.

Wow, that's a lot to wrap my head around. A little disappointed Fo is taking a passive hit, but I guess it balances out.

Can we get a few translations into English please?

 

                0.2% towards 100 of a certain characteristic.   Is this the new math that they are forcing kids to learn?  I have never heard "towards" used in a mathematical equation before.

 

Please explain the math for base damage and bonus damage per power:  Deals 10,000 base damage and 300 bonus damage per power.  or Deals 30,000 base damage and 75 bonus damage per power.

Can we get a  translation into English please?

 

                0.2% towards 100 of a certain characteristic.   Is this the new math that they are forcing kids to learn?  I have never heard "towards" used in a mathematical equation before.

if you were at 0 you'd get 0.2, if you were at 50 you'd get .1, if you were at 90 you'd get 0.022 and so forth

So theoretically the increased frequency of Rite casts will compensate for the nerf since we are lucky to get one ROS a year now, if we have any active players left.

Aura of Shared Pain - Removed from Magranon. Added to Libila.

 

So, basically this means that AOSP is now exclusively black light which removes it from PVE entirely unless they pay PVP blacklighters for it?   And how will this affect PVE WU servers that have no blacklight priests, period?   Am I missing something?  There's a lot to read.

Please explain the math for base damage and bonus damage per power:  Deals 10,000 base damage and 300 bonus damage per power.  or Deals 30,000 base damage and 75 bonus damage per power.

You have 65535 health, so a 30k hit would be about 40% dmg to a 20 str acc with no armor/bonus dr.

Hmm, looks like nahjo lost life transfer, which sucks, but is still otherwise useful as a pve utility priest (got mend, genesis, strongwall, light token, woa still).  Lost truehit, gained mass stamina.

 

Actually, it looks like only sme gets truehit now, which is kinda odd.  And tosser and sme (both blacklighters) get LT, as does fo, which seems a little strange - shouldn't the BL folks get the libila LT thingy instead?

Changes to LT mean I will most likely spend all day every day cowering behind a fence bandaging myself up. Sounds like not a lot of fun and a whole lot of boring (not to mention embarrassment at dying all the time again, thought I'd grown out of that).

 

 

And thanks for the spell list, Oblivionn

  1. Is there a reason why Libila is still banned from farming? All of the other priests can Farm and Now they can all mine. Libila is the only priest who can't Farm or Garden. Or, is it simply that she is the Goddess of Destruction and it would be unseemly for her to grow things? It severely limits her ability to produce items for Saccing.

Sme is WL.

Damage now ignores armour

 

Does this mean the elemental resistances on armor now only apply to weapon enchants (or non-player elemental attacks)?

 

I also assume the DR from SotG still applies to spells?

tbh I don't know why would someone use demigod priest now original god's seems more better choice now which I gues Is not that bad.

 

Yeah, Mag/Lib look like optimal choices for PvP, although Nathan looks pretty strong (stronger than Paaweelr, who, oddly, is now the WL combat demigod).

Now we have priest fighting buff and overhaul, how does this put a non priest vs priest in 1v1 or .. on par or side by side.. if the two had to kill bunch of creatures.. who'd do more damage or have better survivability?

Combat priests lost 10% bonus damage, 25% down to 15%. +2cr isn't close to 10% dmg dealt. Wouldn't really call it a fighting buff at all. pve mobs are so weak it doesn't really matter.
