    Post Trove Livestream Notes 14/09/2018

    Welcome to the latest live stream notes thread!

    After their long flight and a bit of holiday time, the team joined us back for tonight's livestream. Few weeks of no stream so a lot of questions saved up for us all.

    Luxion Returns:
    Good old Luxion is back again this weekend with a new stash of goodies he's managed to procure from the depths of his vault on September 15th

    50% Sale
    Upcoming sale of 50% off chaos chests and summer pinatas in the store. Summer pinatas will retire again soon after to make way for Autumn.

    Gardening overhaul:

    It was briefly mentioned about a profession overhaul today, this was mentioned a little while abc too. Gardening is planned for an overhaul, not just adding a few new items and features, so avid green thumbed players best watch out for it.

    More spoilers will obviously occur as we make our way up to the winter update for U10 but for the next update, look around October, to the Shadows Eve content.
    More to come on that in future streams.


    Questions and Answers Session:

    What's the official name of the "Uber-10" update and how big it will be?
    We have not released the official name yet. It’s more than one word though!
    As for the size, it’s hard to quantify that but it’s classed as a major update

    When a massive Uber-10 spoilers will start?
    We’ve already given away some spoilers, so we are slowly letting them seep out over time

    How many packs are planned to add together with the Uber-10 update?
    We don’t usually give a number out, but it will be similar to other major updates.

    Is there any chance to add PVP XP in Bomber Royale mode or create a second portal for 'old' PVP? On consoles there's a Glorious Gladiator trophy and without a proper club doing CTF or DM it's impossible to get Platinum now.

    Yea, we’ll be adjusting that trophy to apply to Bomber Royale

    Can we get another way to get Pearls that isn't gated so heavily by RNG?
    You can place fixtures in clubs to increase the drop rate – that’s the main way to assist in getting them. They are also tradable, so you can get them off the marketplace. Also, sometimes gear will drop with pearls already applied to it. Outside of these ways, no other changes are planned.
    We are looking at another way with an upcoming system update

    Why did you remove the vibrate queue on your final jump?

    Good question. It was not removed intentionally, so it looks like a bug – we’ll be investigating a fix.

    Why is the Super Magical costume so expensive (200,000 flux PLUS materials) ???
    Because it’s super magical! The real reason is that they originally could be obtained via the costume mystery boxes – so we also want to make sure it maintains a high value for players that got it via that route.

    Can you give us an ETA for when the rev, ice sage, and shadow hunter issues plaguing speed running will be fixed?

    This should be fixed with the next update. Pinatas and sports balls will no longer count towards combat buffs.

    Can you make binding darkness more obtainable? End-game players are suffering to grind those up, I had an idea of making contained chaos spark a rare drop from farming dungeons, like 1 out of 500-750 dungeons.
    A super rare drop like that almost certainly wouldn’t be satisfying either. Plus, the other materials in the craft are timegated and intentionally so. We can look into making it more obtainable though and we have a task to track this now.

    I would really like an another option of gaining gem leveling items from grinding, something like lustrous gem boxes, but they would be kinda rare, and they would drop a few lapis bugs, or clovers.
    The gem leveling is going to get a bit easier with the U10 release, so look forward to that. It’s not directly what you are asking, but should help with the core pain.

    Are you planning on changing flawless rewards now that it's possible to craft light chaos vaults?
    No plans to change this – even though you can craft them, they are still worthwhile rewards for the flawless runs.

    Are you planning on changing older motorcycle models to have actual spinning wheels?
    It honestly wasn’t on the radar, but I’ve put in a lower priority request to look into these. They are likely based on the “tron” themed cycle rigs where the non-rotation was an intentional choice. We’ll do a pass on them but again, low priority

    I heard a rumor of the incoming damage stat being obtainable on gear and gems coming with u10. Is this true?
    No, it will not be the incoming damage stat. There will be new “armor/penetration” stats (name not final!) that will be on them

    Will we ever get mini map in game? It's pretty tedious having to open map everytime we finish a dungeon.
    This is not on the short term roadmap – we certainly understand the annoyance of having to open the map every time, but a minimap just hasn’t yet seemed worth it for the amount of time/effort it would take to implement

    Will the following packs show up for credit in the not too distant future - Eclipse, Spooky Swag Bag, Gourdzilla?
    Yes to the Spooky Swagbag and the Gourdzilla packs, but no on the Eclipse.

    Will Luxion make items available from money-only packs like Mega Menagerie, Double Dragon, or any others over a year old?
    Most likely not, we generally don’t make pieces of packs available individually, since that creates confusion if a player has part of the pack and then buys the pack.

    When will the sun and moon aura return?
    No date or name for it but there will be another big pack coming which will have that aura returning with it.

    Any comment on the slim availability of Cinnabar since the QoL update?
    We’ll have to look into this. It was not intentionally lowered, so it’s on our radar to investigate.

    If the new gem color has different stats but carries a PR increase, will the new stats apply to prior content? Shadow Towers have a PR requirement and that potential PR fluff may annoy anyone making a group.

    Yes, they will apply to prior content (some better than others) armor and penetration specifically will not. Also, this problem technically already exists, I can join your group now with all +HP gems and have very high PR but not be super effective.

    Do you have any plan to expand Geode caves - such as different layouts (i.e submerge water tunnels, waterfall, etc.), combat available portals, new type of critters, new type of modules?
    We do have plans to expand them. The first thing we’ll do is new critter types!

    Will Geode surface mobs/bosses have new combat mechanics/abilities?
    They will have some new abilities, but nothing too revolutionary. The surface combat will have new stuff to collect and some new objectives as the main focuses.

    Will there be a new Adventurine dragon with the U10 release?

    No, although there are other new dragons!

    Are the new gems that are coming with U10 going to be leveled and augmented the same way as our current gems? If so will current crafted foci work on them and what will happen with the Precise Focus? Will it remain the same (using just 3 dust types to craft) or will the 4th dust type be added and the amounts of dust needed revised?
    Yes, they will be leveled and augmented in the same way. The current crafted foci will work and we will not be changing the recipes for them.

    Can lustrous gem boxes be obtained on other days of the week and increase drop rate during wednesday as well?

    This isn’t something we have plans to change.

    Any plans to add companion egg merchant to exchange bronze eggs to silver and gold eggs?
    Silver and gold eggs are designed to be quite rare and we’re not looking to change that in the foreseeable future. We will also look at other ways to give out eggs.

    People abusing/exploiting the top 100 ultra DOTM leaderboard has been running wild for a long time now. Any action being taken to address this?
    This should be fixed with the next update.

    Will there ever be new bonuses coming to club that above level 11 in near future ?
    Not in the short term

    Please explain flash deals and power deal system , how do we even trigger them. if we were over 20kpr+ before the update. do we take out the gems and put it back in?
    You do not need to take out and put in your gems. Once you qualify for one, you’ll always be qualified for it. They are time based and somewhat random when they appear. We are evaluating making them appear more often.

    When will the next update for prism of light aura's be?
    New auras will be available on the Prism of Light in the next major update. (U10)

    Will there be more D’hevistation events?
    The Allies of the D’hev will surely need your help again.

    Will Luxion have despoiled divinitys in future returns?
    Luxion will continue to bring limited currencies like Despoiled Divinity in future appearances. The feedback about him offering only a single one per visit is a reasonable request. We may increase that number in the future if appropriate.

    Will the new gem be of the earth element?

    No it will not be.

    Was it intended that Buildmaster mount doesn't place any scaffolding blocks or any other blocks above them?
    We will double check this but i believe it might be intended due to some previous tech issues and we will look into this.

    When is U10 coming?
    It will feature late in the year.

    New critters... Well more pain to get that... Anyway, I hope these "new" forms to get silver/gold eggs can help...

    Thx Shiro

    The new critters I hope was a joke, I don’t want another type of comfort item to have to carry and rotate into the limited hot bar slots.

    Silver and gold eggs are designed to be quite rare and we’re not looking to change that in the foreseeable future. We will also look at other ways to give out eggs.
    So, are we repeating the same cycle as it was with the club quests? Firstly, there "is no problem, it's designed that way, they are meant to be rare", then "we' re talking about it" and finally, hopefully, a working solution implemented? At least they are considering some ways of giving out the eggs, but it'll probably take a few months :/
    But seeing that the club quests are still a low priority, we'll probably get all the rares out of several thousand eggs before anything changes...

    Hoping UM badges would have been easier to grind out after that update, guess we'll wait till PTS to see what they've got for other stats.
