    Post Trove Livestream Notes 25/05/2018

    Welcome to the latest live stream notes thread!


    On tonights stream, the team, showed off the modules of the upcoming geode update at a ore base level to show what they would be like for an average player.
    Keetsie drove us around the caverns with her skillful prowess and jump/claw abilities.

    A few tips were mentioned such as dodging after a climbing claw maneuver and using the omni tool in the centre of 4 blocks for mining as it has a small area of effect ability, which will help overall to mine faster.

    A few updated lairs were shown, the crystal lairs have been given more crystals to balance out the travel into them and organic lairs were added which will allow you to gather more of the cave resources like kelp, cave birds,dream dew etc. May be worth keeping an eye out for upgrade costs.

    As you go through the caves, you will find archways that lead to dead ends and if you follow the main path, youll reach an arch with glowing LED blocks, they flash to symbolise the next tier, so 2 flashing for tier 2 etc.
    Higher tiers will drain your GAS much after, upgrades will reduce this.

    You can find companion eggs in dead end lairs Tiers 2 and above

    Geode brings a different type of gameplay instead of baseline destruction and obliteration on a mass level of most species. It focuses more on exploration and assistance.
    The update is presumed to eventually lead into allowing traversing of the rest of the planet, so a gateway to U10+.

    New mastery name colours were released in the PTS update.
    As of typing:
    Orange for overall high mastery in both trove and geode leaderboards

    Blue for high mastery in geode leaderboards

    Yellow for high mastery in trove leaderboards

    Sidenote: PTS is to be kept open until this coming Tuesday.


    Questions and Answers Session:


    Why do geode collectibles have both Geodian and Trovian mastery points attached to them when geode and main trove are supposed to be mutually exclusive?
    Its not supposed to be mutually exclusive, geode is a feature within trove and mastering trove, includes mastering geode.

    Geode has its own mastery system, does it mean devs are going to focus on geode more than trove in future?
    Geode mastery exists as a seperate track for players who prefer the geode content. If you put it as part of the trovian mastery track then it means players have to earn a tonne of trovian mastery levels to then start getting the geode content. We put parallel tracks for that so this allows us to award the player content to which they prefer. Further on you'll see trove and geode become more related such as U10 on geodes surface.

    Will crystals be a currency on the marketplace?
    No, we dont want to introduce more currencies on the marketplace. Consider them the base material.

    Any new pvp store packs for bomber royale?
    Not right now, focused on giving a balanced experience and depending on how people like it, then well do more stuff with it in the future.

    How do you recharge your GAS while in the caves?
    You dont, you are limited to what GAS you have and via upgrades. This is your limiter in exploring.

    Will the cave systems get more objects for a more thematical feeling?
    They are another gameplay pillar for trove, plans for the future but we need to look at feedback and expand depending on feedback. Goal is to work on U10 first.

    Can we get an easter egg added for those brave advancing Trovians that already explore the surface of Geode outside the barrier?
    The surprise is death, there are some ways but ye... There is an easter egg inside the barrier though.

    Is Geode the prerequisite to U10?
    Sort of, u10 will takes place on the surface of Geode.

    If late entering a cave, resources you want have been mined out, any plans for this?
    Were taking a couple of steps to make this better, tweaking amount of players that can enter and the time after the first entry that others can enter.

    Will the decreased amount of club exp required to level up be retroactive?

    Yes, once it goes live, the next time your club gains exp it will adjust to the values.

    Are there going to be new sigils for mastery?
    Yes

    Any word on server performance issues?
    We do have some in geode, we have some dedicated engineers on this. Weve got a whole milestone on this and quality of life. Our head engineer has found a key thing to work on.

    Any plans to add more hairstyles and colours?
    Easy answer is yes, theres some pretty cool things in the works for that.



    That ends this weeks stream. Take care all and enjoy your gaming

    Not a fan of more color name added.

    Seen too much of this fancy gimmick in other MMO, what is next with name? rainbow? vfx? blink? blah...

    still looking forward to see how Geode fare when it goes lives.

    Thanks for the note

    Personally I like it. Though really you're not going to see many blue names since they'll just be orange anyway. Yellow names will probably take most of the orange names too. Yellow has been kind of boring after all this time.

    2000 is way too many people, white gonna be the most rare name soon. :>

    And this puts all square, so don't expect trovian mastery players to take up all the geode mastery slots.
