Hello everyone!

 

Median Night has passed! And while you were enjoying the holiday, challenging each other for Sam Hain’s treasures and were trying new costumes, we finished first part of testing new private dungeons. And today we will talk about them.

 

Dungeon. What is it?

 

Private dungeons, better known as “Instances” - special areas in game, opened for exploring only for one party of players at the time. In other words, as soon as group of players enters dungeon, game creates unique copy of dungeon which is available only for you. And nobody can interrupt you from completing challenges and receiving the reward – only you and bunch of monsters! Sounds good? True gift for PvE players!

 

You already faced similar mechanics in Warspear Online – dedicated Player versus Player Arena. In dungeons you will fight hordes of monsters who protect great treasures. To complete the whole dungeon you may need up to 30 minutes. There you’ll have to show all your skills and ability to work in team, because your enemies will be much smarter and trickier than you ever seen before.

 

We are planning two types of dungeons:

 

1. For one player

2. For group of players. Since this type will appear in the game in the of nearest updates, so we will take a closer look.

 

“Forever alone”

 

Entrance in dungeon for one will opens after receiving special quest. Quest goal can be different – from killing monsters or/and Boss to collecting items. After completing all conditions, exit will appear in the end of dungeon. But remember, if you will enter such dungeon with party, then everyone will see his own instance and will have to finish it alone.

 

“One for all and all for one”

 

Traveling around the world you can find different objects marked with “skull” sign – entrance to instance. It is always open and no matter do you have a quest or not. What's the point? It's simple – such places hides countless treasures. Do you wanna change your armor or grab precious items to sell or maybe earn lots of guild points? Come on grab your friends and go for it! However, if you are confident in your skills, you can finish it alone. But we do not recommend to take that risks.

 

So, you made the group. You and your friends must be near party-leader, who will open dungeon gates and choose difficulty level. Each dungeon has several levels of difficulty. The harder it is, more time it takes, tougher enemies and the bigger reward!

 

And there are 4 levels of difficulty

  • Easy
  • Normal
  • Hard
  • Heroic

To choose Heroic level of difficulty you have to complete previous ones.

As you see, there is no level limitations for entering instances. You only need a certain amount of reputation points with fraction on which territory dungeon is situated and at least one point of “Seeker's stamina”. This is a new parameter for characters, it accumulates on its own and consumes at the entrance to the dungeon.

 

After the group leader will choose the level of difficulty of dungeon and activates it, rest will receive an invitation for instance(and you have to confirm it). If one player refuses, the group will not be able to enter dungeon.

 

After all preparations and confirmations you will appear at the beginning of dungeon. Instance could be shaped in different forms and lengths: from simple “hallway” with the Boss in the end, to confusing and complicated labyrinth system with several Bosses and puzzles that you have to complete to open door to next hall. A myriad of options. Your goal is to reach the end, eliminate all monsters on your way and succeed in a reserved time. Countdown timer will be placed under mini-map. After killing the last monster in the dungeon you will see the way out and chest reward. If your time has gone, you can spend Seeker's stamina to refresh timer and continue battle.

 

Death and respawn points

 

If you've died in instance, that's not a big problem. You can respawn near Statue and catch up your group spending Seeker's stamina point; either revive in designated point in dungeon using Life scrolls or for Miracle Coins. These points are located in different parts of the dungeon and activates automatically as soon as the player passes. After death your character will respawn near last activated point. Yes, you understood correctly, you can't respawn on the exact place where you've been killed.

Since monsters do not respawn after killing, you can easily reach the friends. And only you have to decide which way of respawning is the best for you. But remember: instance exists only if you have any group members alive and inside. If your group was wiped and left the dungeon, instance closes and you have to repeat it from beginning.

 

Reward

 

In the mysterious depths of each dungeon you can find a treasure chest guarded by hordes monsters and Boss. Killing the boss is an achievement itself, but getting treasures is always nice too! At the moment we expect that you can find in chests equipment parts (weapons, armor, jewelry), rare and valuable consumables including spheres, runes and crystals. The harder instance – the better reward. To receive the reward, each member of group should come and open chest. All items could be sold via Secondhand dealer and you always can return to already completed instance and finish it once again. Besides, guild members will receive guild points for every successful raid.

 

Results

 

For your convenience, we have prepared the statistics of completing dungeons. There you can see who made/received the most damage, killed monsters and many more! Windows with results appears after successful finishing all quests and available only for group members.

 

Prototype of the new interface

At the end we want to say with adding dungeons we finished another big part of development new global update. We made another step, which brings us closer to Ayvondil release. Instances are the cornerstone of mechanics of the new continent and it's made! Already in the nearest update you will see the results of our work and will try exciting new game mode. We really hope that you'll like it.

 

You can ask all your questions in this thread and we will try to answer!

 

Good bye, see you in Warspear Online.

I hope you didnt have to finish chainless to do these... Only one of my 4 chars have completed chainless and that's Pvprange.  Please don't make it like this.  Please reply to this. 

 

 

It was also stupid during the Halloween event that my druid had the required crimson corundum to buy the skeleton theif but it wouldn't let me because chainless wasn't completed.

Yes, you can use pots/summon minions there.

Information about reviving you can find in the first post in this thread.

says you can revive by spending stamina points, then says life scrolls and miracle coins.. so all 3 are possible?

 

 

about the stamina points do they refresh like free arena tickets? or u can also buy pots to refill them?

Statue is situated outside in the nearest city and respawning checkpoints are inside dungeon.

 

Yes, stamina is refreshing over time, but if you don't want to wait you can use stamina pots (or analogue)
