Lamannia History: Update 10 Patch 1 Paused



The train has been stopped. The patch will not ship in its current state.

I will update (probably via a separate thread) when I have more news, but I can say this:

We will NOT require raid loot as ingredients.

We will NOT require bound named items as ingredients.

Many ingredients, and the *amount* of some of these ingredients were out of line.

These changed recipes should have been reviewed by various designers, but weren't (a hole in our process that we have identified and corrected to avoid for the future).

Mournlands did not have an opportunity to see or comment on these changes.

Again, I'll post more info when I have it.

Our sincere apologies for causing panic, and many thanks to all players who offered their well-thought out and constructive feedback on this issue and tried the changes on Lamannia.

This is a historical moment: Play testers on Lamannia actually stopped a crappy update from being pushed to live!


Sad News for Risia Crafters: Craftable Items are not Random Items

Craftable items are not treated as "randomly generated" by the Risia upgrade system, so those items cannot be modified by it.


Question: Will Risia Ice Recipes work on Crafted Weapons?
Short Answer: No. The Risian crafting alter will only accept randomly generated item. Once you disjunction an item, is no longer considered a random item.

Review: Risia Ice Games

A Game within a Game

blueanne.jpgI’m a big fan of games inside of games; especially when the mini-game has a meaningful outcome within the context of the overall game. This is the case of the Risia Ice Games, where you collect and turn in coins for ice paraphernalia, up to 20 recipe cards, and ingredients to craft with.

Once you’ve collected enough recipe cards and ingredients, you can then use the Risian Eldritch Device to craft eternal wands of Ray of Frost, frost-based damage weapon enhancements, and cold spell boost enhancements. There is even a suprise winter recipe which lets you craft a Summon Snowy Elemental gem.
