Combat Update Information + Warzone

First, a huge huge huge thank you to @Falanor and @Draeren, this update wouldn't have been possible without them!

 

We are adding back 1.8 styled pvp to the server, this update has been in progress for quite a long time, and we apologize for the delays that have occurred with its release, though we hope the wait will be worth it. If you enjoyed the 1.9 styled pvp with swing-timers on weapons, that will still be available, more on that will be in the changelog below. For the next 1 - 2 weeks, we are opening a warzone for all players to try the new combat system, with the 1.8 styled weapons combined with the 1.9. The new combat system will ONLY be available at this warzone, meaning the changes won't be in affect on the actual Isles just yet. For old times sake, we've decided to use the Avar warzone map from Vailor for the beta testing of the new combat system.

The portals to the warzone are at spawn next to the Orc boat. There is a beacon behind the portal area to help identify its location.

Warzone Info/Rules:

  • There are 2 sides to choose from: Blue and Green. Statuses are frozen and performing respectively, but feel free to use any status.
  • Try to keep the sides even as much as possible, we want to replicate typical raid/warclaim scenarios in order to see if it's ready for releasing.
  • Gear will be provided in chests at each sides base.
  • YOUR INVENTORY WILL BE CLEARED UPON ENTERING/LEAVING THE WARZONE. DO NOT BRING ANYTHING WITH YOU. GEAR IS PROVIDED. GEAR CHESTS WILL BE RESTOCKED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
  • Don't spawn camp.
  • Soulstoning, calling pets, switching personas and opening enderchests has been turned off in the warzone region to prevent items from being taken out. If you still manage to take items out of the warzone, you will be banned!!! Don't do it!
  • No cav.
  • Don't get salty at each other. This warzone is completely for fun and is completely ooc and has nothing to do with any current conflicts happening in rp at the moment. No rewards will be given to the winning side.

 

Tentative Changelog:

  • + Weapons represented by diamond items will remain with a swing timer(bluesteel, carbarum).
  • + Weapons represented by Iron, Gold, Stone, and Wood have had their swing timers removed and damage adjusted to resemble 1.8 damage values.
  • + Knockback has been adjusted to resemble 1.8.
  • + Shields now block most of the damage inflicted on them, but not all.
  • - Knockback resistance on armor has been removed.
  • - Shield disable has been removed from non-diamond axes.
  • - Hit delay on entities has been adjusted to resemble 1.8.
  • - Armor slowness (weight) has been reduced by 25%. (This value will most likely be adjusted further)
  • - Extra damage from crits have been adjusted to resemble 1.8.

 

A point was brought up where choosing to use the 1.9 styled weapons was more expensive to players since diamonds would be required to craft them. We will be making changes to some of the diamond weapon crafts before full release in order to make them less expensive and more accessible to players so that the playstyle of pvp you choose is not restricted by the resources you have, however, we wanted to visually make it as clear as possible when pvping to know what you are fighting against.

 

A google feedback form will be added to this post sometime tomorrow for gathering initial thoughts, a new form will also be released at the end of the beta-testing.

 

A big thank you to @Nazdus and @Harrison for helping with balancing and @Wolfdwg, @cakefool, @Chaw and @Wrynn for helping with the warzone build.

 

Another thank you to @Kowaman for helping put this update together and @InfamousGerman for writing this post and doing menial tasks for teegah.

 

We hope this update was well worth the wait, have fun!

 

EDIT: If you'd like there to be a single capture point at the center of the warzone to add more strategy/objective let me know in the comments! Also archer sets and diamond armor will be added to the provided gear within the next few days. We'll be tweaking knockback/damage values very often in order to find the most enjoyable and balanced numbers.

 

EDIT 2: Here's the link to the initial feedback form : https://goo.gl/forms/fXtKolGh13DngBPq1
