    Post Trove Livestream Notes 12/10/2018

    Welcome to the latest live stream notes thread!



    Bomber royale:
    The first map shown is an old map actually which was in the old CTF style. The team found that the dojo and hedge maze map was a good map and edited in some powerups. A good map to start with and potential for some other older CTF maps could be used.

    5 star dungeons:
    Will have a new icon for the map to show it's a 5 star not a 3.
    By shattering the dark heart in the dungeon, it will spawn 5 different objectives for you to complete. By completing them, similar in style to a cursed skull, a treasure chest will spawn for each individual objective. It also gives you a timer which if you complete you'll get a bonus reward which gives intentions to play as a group making it easier. There's also a "beat fast enough" you get an additional bonus reward but that time hasn't been discussed yet.

    When you activate youll get a dungeon icon with 5 skulls on it at the top of the screen. The skulls will have green eyes when you are near that objective so your team can identify who is at objective 1-5 for clearing purposes and once it is done, a cross will go through it.

    Crystal gear:
    The landing pad type areas you spawn at in the worlds will have a Crystalline Merchant
    Crystal items do not drop in the world. They are an upgrade path item so you buy the crystalline version of your helm/mask and class type weapon and progress to upgrade it. 10 flux to buy, a decision made on purpose so you can go in and start with that baseline.

    Note the following details were shown of a weapon but are subject to change before release and are noted here for an idea of numbers to expect only and are the baseline stat figures. They will also allow 5 stats, by adding a pearl to get the fifth.

    Power rank 700 and requires level 25 to equip

    Weapon:
    3% critical hit
    7085 Maximum health
    4181 Physical damage
    400 Puncture

    Helmet:
    14 Jump
    72 Magic find
    10735 Maximum Health
    400 Armor

    To upgrade the gear, resources from the geode surface will be required, pearls for the stats as before as well.

    Rampage/challenges:
    There will be rampages on the geode surface too and there will be changes to the challenges to hopefully reduce the randomness of having the same challenge every hour. The geode rampages will be on the half hour not the hour.

    Random noticed things:

    Jump starter pack, though not discussed, this pack was shown briefly on the screen.
    It appears to have inventory expanders, omni caches, greater dragon caches, chaos chests and a pack specific mount of a rocket type.

    Paranormal pupkin ally was shown, potentially this could be the October shadows eve event reward for the questline.

    Skull type mecha mount based with a creepy lantern on the front off the dreadnought mk II was shown too which we will probably see at shadows eve, maybe by a pack.

    New dragon called Kyrothon, the war head which gives stats of: 1000 Max Health 7%, Max Health, 5% Attack speed and 50 Magic find.

    Gleamstone sink briefly discussed about.


    Questions and Answers Session:

    With the previous livestream we can reclaim pearl of wisdoms from Stellar gear. Does that also include any pearls on other rarities?

    For right now it is just stellar gear, we don't want to encourage farming of the lower rarities. The mechanic is to make pearls more accessible and not to punish players who invested a lot into their stellar gear.

    Will Insta-grow work on the new gardening profession or is it only limited to current content?
    The old insta-grower will make them sprout faster but doesn't impact their maturing.

    How many new gem slots will we get with U10?
    3 slots, 1 for empowered, 2 for lessers like the current system.

    Sagely dragon scales dropped from Forbidden Spires are set to get an increase affected by dragon day. Will that change also reduce the flux amount when loot collecting them?

    No it will not effect the amount of flux by deconstructing them.

    U10 now set for Winter release. Will there be any other "Major" update this year or will 2018 only have 3 "Major" updates?
    No, that will be the last major update of the year.

    What's the plan for Early 2019?
    Wrap up the Geode arc with another major release.

    Will the 5 star dungeons be exclusive for the Geode surface or will we see them in other ubers as well?
    On release, they will be exclusive to the geode surface, but that doesnt mean they won't appear elsewhere.

    With the possibility of having 5 stats on a single piece of gear, does it mean that rerolling the stats in the chaos forge will be more difficult (rerolling 3 stats at once, or even 4 with the 2nd stat reroll event), or are there any changes planned for that?
    The rolling will be the same as before even, the armour puncture stat will not be rerollable, it will be on the crystal gear and wont be rerolled.

    What will happen with the Bomber Royale season 1 rewards, will the be completely gone from the store or will we still be able to buy them with alongside with the season 2 rewards?

    They still will exist and be purchaseable with season 1 coins. Few ways to get them, the tome, buy tome for season 2 coins, buy season 1 coins for season 2 coins at ratio of 2:1. The items will also be put into the boom boxes for season 2.

    Will the gems go up to crystal tier?
    They will not, we didn't want to introduce a new gem colour and then make you get all your other gems up to the top.

    Is Crystal gear going to be able to Level Up as usual or is it going be like with Rings.
    Level it up as usual.

    So, is the Crystal Gear going to be craftable or will it obtainable in a similar way like we do with the Class Gems?

    It will be bought from the crystalline merchant at the spawn point of the world.

    Since we are going to have an updated gardening system (that sounds pretty good so far), would it be a possibility of having a Breeding mechanic too? It would be cute to see creatures running around the clubs and also to harvest resources from them.
    Not on the radar for now, were doing experiments and trying new stuff out with the revamp to gardening. We'll see how people like it and go from there.

    How does the new stat work, armor and puncture?
    Armor mitigates damage and puncture gets through the armor. The enemies will have both stats. Their armor will drastically reduce your outgoing damage so you'll need puncture to bypass and to increase your damage back. Puncture also raises damage on yourself so you'd need armor to reduce that to your self.

    Is it intentional that bubble dragon fragments only come from water?
    Yes

    Since your adding vanity skins for bombs in bomber royale would you guys ever consider adding more vanity skins for other parts of the game such as damage number reskins?
    We will certainly consider it for other areas after seeing how the bomb reskins go.

    Will the shadow tower boss rooms ever get a revamp as most are just identical looking rooms?

    We will look into it when we will revisit shadow towers.

    Since we will get upcoming gems from Empowered Gem Boxes, can you take out Class Gems and Fragments from it and maybe let us farm Class Gem keys via fragments or something?
    We originally said they would not come from them. We are going to be changing that. Contents of the box will unlikely change except for adding the new gem type.

    Is there any possibility to craft already 'discovered' companions In case you need to loot collect uncommon or rare ones to avoid using space in your inventory?

    No, we have no support for that and probably wont be a high priority.

    Do U10 dungeon give crystals?
    No they do not.

    Will cornerstone, /respawn and /getworldid be unavailable on U10 biomes like geode cave?

    No they wont be blocked as u10 is an adventure world.

    Will there be cornerstone plots on geodes surface?

    There wont be, there will be outposts that craft, refill flasks and buy the crystal gear but no cornerstones. The surface is under attack so it wouldn't be safe for your homes.

    Has the PR requirement been mentioned yet?
    It's not been nailed down yet.

    Whats the method of upgrading crystal gear?
    Similar to the current method, using the forge and materials.

    Will our hats/faces also be Crystal and will Crystal Gear have the same stats as our current stellars? (Move speed in particular)
    Yes, they will function similarly but upgrades more at each level.

    Will crystals drop from the geode surface?

    No plans for that right now.

    Will a 26k+ player breeze through U10? Are the armour/penetration stats a way to prevent this?

    A 26k player will be at an advantage but the new stats will prevent it from being a breeze as you'd need more puncture to deal damage and more armor to mitigate.

    What level will these worlds be?
    Uber 8 up to Uber 10.

    Will Armour/Penetration apply to old content or is it a Geode Surface mechanic only?
    At launch it will be geode surface only but that doesnt mean it wont go elsewhere eventually.

    It was mentioned last stream that new content is designed so that players can't stockpile items to instantly finish it. With that in mind, will our current augment focii and gem boosters apply to the new gems?
    Yes, they will as well. We are removing cracked as an outcome for gems. The jade clovers can then be used to craft more horseshoes.

    Will the new U10 world have a player count limit as geodes cave ?
    Limited the same way as the adventure worlds.

    It used to be we could get the mounts, boats, and other "for credit only" things in the store from chaos chests. Since this is not longer the case can you give us another non-credit based path to acquiring these items? Perhaps cubits or Luxion?
    We are unlikely to do it because the introduction of credit pouches gives a way to allow you to make these purchases although it is possible for them to show up on Luxion.

    Land Scaper 8000-T, is only 50 mastery when other store mounts of this type are 100, will this be adjusted?

    This was an oversight, it should have had 100 mastery and has been fixed as of passing over this question.

    When were the new rampage bosses coming?
    We aren't showing them just yet.

    Can we have an option to disable the XP bar in the top left? Many of us are playing level 30 classes and the bar is rather pointless at that point and clutters up the screen.
    No and yes. An option to disable it is kind of annoying so we might have it disable at max level automatically.

    Weird thing is i had actually thought about his suggestion when writing the question but figured a menu option would be easier to implement, so didn't think to suggest it.
    In the stream he said to remind him of this as a to-do, was he talking to the viewers or the devs in the room?

    Ah so the xp bar would go away when maxed later. Good to know. Was starting to think they'll either do prestige xp or have the weekly xp rewards bar go there to fill if it did change

    Wasn't Geode supossed to be optional?. Now it's mandatory to upgrade gear that impacts adventure directly?. It's a sad day for me. Time to quit after 4 years of playing i guess.

    So everyone's gonna /joinworld <club> /joinworld <world> like they've been doing for gem quests to get flask refills and dump items? We didn't see any outposts in todays stream, if they're anything like neon cities outposts (rare af) then that's our future.

    Speaking of which, only ganda & CC drop quests come to mind for any adventures that might apply to geodes dungeons.
