    Post Trove Livestream Notes 05/10/2018

    Welcome to the latest live stream notes thread!

    Tonights stream the team set off onto the surface of Geode to show off the landscapes and dungeon designs in the upcoming U10 update.


    The surface world contains 3 sub-biomes called; Cerise Sandsea, Weathered Wasteland and Hollow dunes. Some of the plantlike structures and environment blocks are shown off via nighttime with their glows giving them its own atmosphere.

    In one of the areas shown off under the ground some mineral blocks were indirectly shown off which I will describe below:
    A purple block which looked a lot like shapestone.
    A lightblue/grey hue block that looks a lot like moonstone.
    A block that looks a lot like gleamstone.
    A green ore block.

    New 5 star dungeons were shown off. The dungeons follow the same premise as others with their bosses scattered around however they have 1 additional thing called a dark heart.
    When interacting with it, a timer appeared and a percentage of completion was shown. This was shown by mistake and may not be correct info, so future streams will go into it more.

    A new shortcut command of CTRL+A was seen which allows you to now access the Trovian atlas from anywhere for ease of transportation.



    Questions and Answers Session:

    Will there be a crystal tier gem or new types of gems?
    Just a new type of gem.

    Can we get some more info on crystal gear as a previous meant a disconnect from our current gear and progression put into it despite our heavily invested efforts put into them?
    Crystal is a new progression level. We want to make sure players dont just start out with the top of the line gear. We definitely want to make sure people dont feel like they've lost their hard work. We realise that primarily comes from the pearls invested so Stellar gear will be able to be deconstructed to get pearls out of it. Pearls invested into gear or gear found.

    Wont this effect the pearl price?

    That actually is a goal we have, we don't want pearls to be quite the grind that they currently are.There will also be another avenue via gardening to get them.

    Will we get crystal rings later after u10 in the future?
    No plans yet but we are keeping it in mind. One change that is coming, we are going to change the way that you got rings from ring boxes, no more throwing on the ground.

    Do you have a plan to sell class packs again, if yes, when?
    No immediate plans but we will be looking at what we don't to do with those packs soon, potentially the end of the year.

    Will the new gem type be obtainable from Empowered Gem Boxes that are purchased with Lunar Souls after the update?
    We will be talking about that in coming weeks. One general rule is that we don't plan on doing things that allow you to stockpile now so you can have a load of them before the update comes out.

    When will the rest of the classes get resistor costumes?
    It was never the intention for all the classes to get the costumes in the short term, but we will roll out more over time.

    What is actually included in the October update and is there a planned release date?
    The October update sets out for the Shadows eve event, new packs, bug fixes and improvements. Set to go live for October 16th hopefully.

    Can you give us the possibility to set npcs in club ? To make the clubs alive (like the hub of geode)?
    A good question, but right now there are etch reasons why we dont allow players to just place NPC's. It would increase the load.

    Can you show us a 5 star dungeon.
    Yes we can and we did on the stream and we will talk about them more later.

    Can we have a builder class ? A class with the ability to fly only in club world.

    We will be looking more at more builder tools in the major release after u10.

    Will the 2 new pvp dragon eggs be tradeable and able to be gained via effigy?
    Yes they will be tradeable and no you cant use an effigy to unlock them.

    Will the Power Plower tractor from blocky bonus be compatible with the gardening update?

    It wont have the extra functionality that the new tractor mounts will have.

    Will there be a new crafting bench for the crystal gear or updated bench we already use?

    We will talk about that in other weeks, not this week.

    Will there be a new dust tome for the new gem?
    Yes there will be a new dust tome.

    Can we have a /dab emote so that Vanguardian isn't the only class cursed with dabbing?

    Unlikely.

    Do you have any order planned for which classes will be reworked first, or is it still up in the air until after tomb raiser is finished?
    We have a rough order defined but its fluid and could change.

    Will there ever be a binding darkness tome, preferably a lesser tome that only gives 1 so that it's easier to farm?
    Maybe but almost certainly not a lesser tome.

    Will there be any new Halloween themed packs or costumes coming with the Shadow's Eve event?
    Yes there will be a new pack and the return of old packs such as Spooky swag bag and the Gourdzilla pack.

    Is the October update arriving during Shadow's Eve or will it be coming sooner?
    It will come 1 week before shadows eve on October 16th

    Can Yabaki be obtained like ganda?
    No, it is an extremely rarely event/promotion mount we do, it will go back into the vaults now

    Any future plans for a chaos core sync?
    No plans this time, we do continue to add thing, also light/dark caches consume them

    Any plan to add a voice chat system in game?
    No plans on this, it comes with nice benefits but a whole lot of drawbacks. Not a good fit for trove but there are many other great solutions for other chat systems such as Discord.

    Would you like to change the coins challenge's coin to crystals to also make it obtainable?
    Assuming you mean so that you can get crystals by doing those challenges, its interesting but definitely not likely to happen. Would require a lot of very big changes to the challenge.

    Last few badges from consuming Luxion souls didn’t reward mastery while the mount,items,and ally have granted mastery but the badges didn’t, can you please look in to it?
    The mastery shown is for the rewards themselves not the badge, this is how other badges work for dragons.

    When will Luxion bring login mounts again like the October ones and such, for example: cob web carpet?
    Cant really say but cobweb carpet will be coming from a twitch drop soon

    As mentioned in the Trovesaurus dev interview, you guys said something about a new token for bomber royal does that mean new coins and that the new items added will use these new coins? And does that mean u will change the tome every season to grant those seasonal tokens??
    There will be season 2 coins that are used to get the new items. The one difference is that it wont be an existing tome converted, there will be a season 2 tome.

    Any chance of shadow hunter buff for shadow tower
    When we revisit the shadow hunter class, we will look at that.

    Will lustrous boxes or gem augments ever have the ability to be bought with either credits or real world currency?
    Yes in fact we have included them in some upcoming packs.

    Mouse and Keyboard support is dropping for Xbox within the next few weeks. Will we see the ability to utilize such feature while playing Xbox?
    Good question but not something we are actively looking at right now. We will look into it and see what effort is required to support and base a decision off that.

    Will Trove ever have the "play anywhere" functionality to allow me to play on Windows 10 and Xbox One since they would both be UWP formatted?

    Unlikely at this point.

    Will Yabaki ever be usable in geode?
    On the surface, yes like other mounts but for the caves, no.

    Will Geode Caves materials be available on Geode Surface?

    Some of them will.

    Will Geode Caves receive "catch up" mechanics after U10 comes out?
    Not with U10 but we will be giving them some love after U10.

    Will patron or daily bonuses ever apply to Geode Caves? Will patron apply to Geode Surface?

    It will to the surface as it does with other adventure zones but no plans for the caves right now.

    When will PTS be open?
    No date for that, we are targeting the very end of October but of course, subject to change.

    When will the second extra life pack release?
    It will be this year but no date for it yet.

    Put it on luxion also. Twitch drops are cute for non-mastery items but I'd rather not miss mastery because I can't tune in.

    There will be season 2 coins that are used to get the new items. The one difference is that it wont be an existing tome converted, there will be a season 2 tome.
    Can season 2 coins buy season 1 items? yikes.

    Need this BR season thing explained in some details.
    When did we ever get news that this would have season specific coins or even that there were seasons?

    Why are there seasons.... who asked for seasons? what good can come from seasons?


    Just like every other thing that requires consistent attention we know they are going to mail this in LUX style...

    I'm willing to bet season 2 last way way way to long and season 3 becomes a meme...



    So do we know if the current coins we have will buy the new dragon and items?

    I get there is a new BR tomes for what ever reason.... tome number 563 to change up... this makes me think there will be coin version 2 and the new items will not be able to be bought with coin 1.


    so then how do new players buy things from season 1?

    seasons are a thing to maintain the playerbase.
    you will have to grind S2 coins for the new S2 things.
    also you weren't here S1 ? that's on you. #meritocracy

    Angry A real travesty of a Q&A

    Of course they completely ignored the most important question about Yabaki... What was the logic behind the travesty of the giveaway they did, why were they potentially rewarding TOU-breaking bot owners with one of the rarest mounts ever, and what would they do to prevent a travesty like this from happening again... Now that's something that should've been covered. I mean if Fasti wants to cover that now, or any dev who has an account here, that would be awesome and would alleviate a lot of my frustration and worry that TOU-breakers are getting rewarded...

    Let's be honest, Trion ticked off a lot of people... (See the actual news thread regarding Yabaki)
