Hey there!

 

We are once again ready to lift the veil of secrecy over one of the biggest updates in Warspear Online, and go into detail about what awaits the courageous heroes underwater. We have prepared a lot of the most interesting first-hand information for you.

 

The hands of our developers have created dozens of new mechanics, events and other tools, while the brushes of our artists have drawn over 150 locations, dozens of monsters, bosses and other inhabitants of the underwater world. We're committed to release the update in the best possible quality, and because of the sheer scale of the content, the testing process will require somewhat longer than usual. So, let us convince you that it is worth the wait for the start of this fascinating underwater adventure!


Sit comfortably and don't forget to fasten your seat belts - we will begin the dive!
 

ATTENTION! THE PROJECT IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, SO ANY AND ALL FEATURES AND MECHANICS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE BEFORE THE RELEASE.

First of all, you will need to know that the captivating adventure in the new sector will look like a variety of different interactions with the underwater world and its inhabitants, in which the players will need to show everything they can do to achieve their tasks. Everything in the underwater sector is interconnected and the success of your campaign will depend on the chosen strategy in every aspect of the game. So, let us start from the beginning and gradually converge on the most desired.

 

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? 

 

Pirates

 

As you probably remember from the previous release, the adventures of each hero begins in the camp of pirates from different sides of the sector in accordance with the faction of the character (besides, here are the only statues of rebirth, one for each alliance). Pirates of the clans of Albatross and Petrel are glad to see in their ranks the glorious heroes of Arinar, because with their help, they can not only make some money, but also put a spoke in the wheels of competitors or even take them out of business.

As part of the interaction with the pirate clan, you will need to complete the first part of the quests storyline. This will help you catch up and will give you the necessary insight for further movements during the underwater journey. You will be drawn into the whirlpool of pirate conspiracies and skirmishes, whose actions will take place mostly in underwater territories, out of the public eye.

 

Tritons

 

However, Jolly Roger's flag goons are not the only friendly residents of these places. Under the water you will meet the representatives of the majestic race - Tritons.

 

Jbfpux6sUkyBLiAgzp6G9fPIxtKDgmNpgB76__-h

 

Tritons - sea race, the golden age of which remained in the distant past. According to legend, Tritons appeared from the contact of a drop of lunar silver and particles of sun flame falling into the ocean.Triton's heyday came in the centuries preceding the First War of the Spear. Their mighty power stretched for many miles under water, and the beauty of the Tritons cities, whose towers were cast with copper and pearl, was legendary. Tritons eagerly traded with the inhabitants of the land, exchanging pearls, sea fruits and precious corals for ware blacksmiths and artisans. The Great Rift, which put an end to the old world after the destruction of the War Spear, divided the history of the Tritons into “before” and “after”. The bottom of the seas and oceans overnight filled deep cracks, bursting with the flame of the subsoil - many cities of tritons fell into them completely. Wounded and scattered, the underwater people tried in vain to restore the greatness of their power that had sunk into oblivion. Nowadays, Tritons survive only through trade with Chainless League merchants and pirates, but instead of beautiful pearls and colorful corals, they sell the goods of the holds of sunken ships to the greedy inhabitants of the Pirate Archipelago. The number of Tritons become so small that they have barely enough forces to defend their borders from rapidly expanding  Frogles and sea beasts.

 

As part of the interaction with this race, players will gain access to a chain of quests, which consist in helping the Tritons protect their lands from invaders, as well as battle dangerous sea-bottom creatures that poison the existence of an intelligent friendly race. Ancient sea folk are ready to thank generously all those who will come to help in time of need.

 

Monsters (Biosystems)

 

And, of course, beside the pirates and friendly underwater inhabitants, other creatures living there await you. The seafloor is filled with thousands of the most dangerous monsters of all kinds, waiting for a lapse in vigilance of the heroes who dare enter these perilous waters.

Also, one of the interesting additions will be the introduction of "Biomes" - zones inhabited by monsters sharing similarities in the type of attack, appearance and the like. Additionally, other than just living separately, they also differently react to your actions. For example, predatory fish will smell your blood and attack with increased intensity, if you get the "Bleeding"effect, or gastropods who will engage on any poor soul to step into the trail of slime they leave behind. We have thought of dozens possible variations to make your every combat, even with an ordinary, at first glance, opponent, thrilling and dangerous.

Interaction with the world (Reputation)

 

According to the scheme already familiar to you, interaction with Pirates and Tritons will occur through gatheringof reputation, but this time significant changes will be made to this mechanics, thanks to which this aspect of the game will be revealed in a new way.

 

Reputation with Pirates

 

In the early stages, in order to earn a name and gain access to certain privileges, as in any gangster gang, you will need to earn a certain reputation among the brave, ambitious and eager for profit of the inhabitants of the islands.

 

rAKBdLt221CQ3htKIIAjpUw8TgNUBctJnjbimlg0

 

This reputation is a classic version, the mechanics of which you already know, but there are also changes - in the tools to get it. For these purposes you will have:

  • story quests
  • daily quests
  • Guild event "Ship assault”

 

Guild event in the designated area "Ship assault"

 

1uLoL2QyVwytHE7su86DVWH2hA5lVljQXgUMzwFH

 

"Ship assault" is an event in a dedicated area, consisting of several stages, each of which differs in the number and strength of monsters. The transition to the next stage becomes available only after the fulfillment of a certain condition, therefore, to complete the event you need to perform a series of consecutive actions.

 

Why do you need a reputation with pirates?

 

A reputation with a pirate clan will give you access to a dungeon “Sea Tramps Lair” - an instance, divided into 4 difficulty levels, each of which has its own features and will become a real challenge for the brave heroes of Arinar.

 

9k9hcT9orz7ddQt4ySJPxIBTPK4l4oGLOHQgD8Bf

 

The dungeons are made in such a way that you could not only rely on your equipment, but also flash out your tactical skills.

Dungeons' inhabitants are quite aggressive towards intruders and will come to help their brethren, so sometimes to achieve what you've set out to do, you will have to not only fight off hordes of bloodlusty monstrosities and take on menacing bosses, but also meticulously plan the route of your movement, stoically withstanding numerous trials of fate, awaiting heroes in the grim grottos.

 

XZOkg3acQvwL_RQQoacXgOMzhb6rozCNAet2BKXr

 

Additionally, completing every dungeon difficulty level will unlock a set of daily quests which, in turn, will provide the key to most of the underwater world. In other words, to unlock all possible daily quests, you will need to complete all 4 difficulties.


Also, achieving a certain level of reputation among the pirates will allow trading with a special merchant, offering wares very useful in the underwater, but only if you have Pirate Doubloons in your pocket.

Reputation with Tritons

 

The next stage of the underwater journey will be a reputation among Tritons. Here you will find a completely new mechanic. In contrast to the already existing one, the Triton’s reputation has a maximum threshold of 35 thousand and can also decrease. Depending on its value, players  will receive bonuses when they located under water, and also will be able to access interesting content and open a new path for the progress of their character.

 

Another interesting fact is that in order to accumulate reputation you will not need to do something specific. Any of your actions will affect the number of reputation points - even inaction in some moments!

 

So, the reputation of Tritons can be obtained in the following ways:

  • story quests
  • daily quests
  • dungeon “Sea Tramps Lair”
  • Guild events “Descent into a grotto” and “Invasion of Chaos"

However, be prepared for the fact that from each individual source you can only get a limited amount of reputation in one day. This will allow you not only to diversify the gaming session, but also to relax, gain strength and return to the game while being fresh, energetic and healthy!

 

Guild event in the designated area "Descent into a grotto"

 

The event is presented in the form of successive corridors (stages), each of which ends in a blockage (transition to a new stage). Guild members must go to the end of the grotto or go through as many stages as possible.

 

TXr3EVyuQksJcspJAuBKUSHgmuYP6oaGZcpu0lFn

 

Monsters who settled in the caves of the grotto for years, adapted to the pitch darkness and pose a great danger to the players. To weaken the hordes of bloodthirsty creatures, heroes will use the only available light source - the torch.

 

In addition, only the player carrying the torch can destroy the blockage at the end of the stage, and the process itself will take some time. The complexity of the event lies in the fact that a player with a torch indicator receives absolute aggression, i.e. by default all the monsters in the cave will try to break through the ranks of his comrades to destroy the light blinding them.

 

As a result, the main task of the guild is to accompany the player carrying the torch, to protect him in during movement and especially at the moment of opening the transition to the next stage, reflecting the attacks of the most dangerous monsters.

 

Guild event in the GvG territory "Invasion of Chaos"

 

With the start of the event, players will have time during which they will need to get to the designated area. There will be several entrances to the event territory, but only one of them will become active at the moment the event starts, and it will be chosen randomly.

 

EdHJDi-JqM6AVMDekf0P6tOZtmAMap9DSqJYQLR4

 

The event will be held on a separate GvG-territory, on the locations of which there are monsters that differ in their characteristics. The guild will receive points, the amount of which will depend on the strength of the killed monsters. Alongside ordinary monsters, raid bosses will be present in these locations, killing which will award you with a large number of points. Your tasks will be to score as many points as possible in the allotted time and to not allow opponents to beat you in this race.

 

Why do you need a reputation with Tritons?

 

One of the key differences is that the Tritons’ reputation will give your character passive bonuses which will help you during adventures underwater. The value of the bonus will depend on the level of reputation - the higher it is, the more comfortable you will feel underwater. But even that is not all!

 

CJDWXsRkDE1RPC5U8R2jjiwHSL5AX310VRakSIkX

 

The cherry on top is that one of the possibilities of using the Tritons' reputation will be a new course of developing your character - the "Underwater Talents" branch. It consists of a special set of skills, divided into three directions of development, each of which contains certain abilities. Learning the abilities will be done using the accumulated reputation.

 

And now a little bit about the courses of development for talents of the fifth sector. The talents are separated by type of effect:

  • Independent (fully passive) - a group of talents, improving the attributes of a character when underwater. Progress in this branch will allow you to move faster, take less damage from monsters, deal more damage back, improve the minions and make your underwater travels more effective.
  • Defensive (against monsters' features) - this group of talents is aimed at increasing a character's defensive attributes and improving resistance to poisoning, bleeding and other DoT effects and debuffs, and also lowering the chance and amount of critical damage from monsters.
  • Situational (active-passive) - hybrid talents, without a constant effect, giving a character temporary advantages on the battlefield in terms of passively improving attributes after fulfilling certain conditions.

And yes, learning talents in each separate branch is not dependent on other branches, so you could learn them all, giving your character a plethora of options for improvement.

 

But the main goal of earning the Tritons' reputation is that achieving the appropriate level of reputation allows one to participate in the special dungeon "Sanctuary of Tritons", however, it will only be available for the members of a guild that wins in the epic "Trial of the Tritons".

 

uPm1fQcRYY141-r89COdy5ZlcAXnBCH2U7GNkI3z

 

Trial of the Tritons

 

This GvG-event consists of two stages, in which there is a confrontation between the guilds on the single-elimination system. At each stage, all participating guilds are distributed in twos and compete with each other, in other words, during each stage, half of the participants (guilds) drop out of the competition.

 

The choice of opponents will not be carried out in a random order, but with a maximum balance in order to exclude the appearance of an obvious favorite in a pair of rivals. The winners of the first stage go further, where they are waiting for new rivals who have managed to defeat their opponents. We will tell you more about this mode later.

 

The guild, which successfully completed both stages, receives the Tritons’ blessing, and with it, temporary access to the main treasury of the underwater kingdom - the dedicated dungeon “Sanctuary of Tritons”.

 

Sanctuary of Tritons

 

The final dungeon of the new sector, which has only one level of complexity, will become a real test of strength and courage. Besides the fact that only winners of the two stages of the guild event will have the opportunity to enter it, inside you should expect a not at all joyful reception.

 

r2atkrZhLnQcT_63LWyc_AGoyattUQokJjlBP059

 

This dungeon is fraught with a bunch of dangers that only the most courageous, persistent and resourceful warriors can overcome. Get ready to use the arsenal of your best qualities and use your characters at full capacity, because the reward will be worth any effort.

 

As you already know, “Ship's Graveyard” will not let you be bored, because to all of the above you are expected by the most dangerous raid bosses, treasures of sunken ships, incredible rewards and much more.

Friends, that's all we wanted to tell you at the moment. We hope that you are pleasantly surprised and found something interesting for you. Who knows, maybe next time we will give you the opportunity to test the content on your own.

 

Be on the alert, because the countdown has already begun! See you soon 😉

This is the end of a cycle. Once the content is delivered, there will be opportunity for plenty of innovation and the team won't stop creating new features and exciting content. Possibly a new island? check. New ways to play? check. New storyline? check. The sky is the limit. Level 30 is the maximum, until devs decide that it's not.

Well, we can always expand the sector or open a portal to other worlds, but it is too early for such conversations 😉

my honest view of this is : new content is always fun , but i tell you that the game is only lively(at least on eu, and i assume its same on other servers(idk for sea))on events , afterwards the population gets real low especially in lower lvl chars . so i rly suggest you pushing this patch this summer before 2019 events(horror etc) , otherwise it will be dead summer and many ppl will just afk until new event, as many do now.

This is usually a problem when content becomes to easy to beat, i.e 1 stam spammable due to complaints then everything drops in the space of a week and becomes worthless, then devs hoping it will last longer now have an angry mob of players demanding new stuff.

Hopefully the difficulty of the new area and it's drops are kept hard to get to keep things fresh for a while while allowing devs time to work on future expansions.

This is a problem I have pointed out a few times already. There are way too few new players on Warspear and there really has to be done something to attract more newcomers. Most of hose few people who dare giving Warspear a try give up sooner or later because it's boring and hard to pass through the beginner islands with no companions to play with:unknw:
