We will be bringing the servers down sometime within the next few hours to push our new build! Servers will be down less than an hour.


Patch Notes 4.59.2

The Twilight Vale, that always ethereal event zone of twinkling valleys, deadly Fae and their Ladder of woe, and luscious rewards for all, has arrived once more for the Midsummer season! But the mischievous fairies have not been idle in their time away from the Seven Realms. Changes await! Get ready, Heroes, for greater challenges, altered recipes, new mounts and outfits, and more!

In addition to the many pleasures of the event zone, this patch also includes a return to the old system of stat pools, which was much championed by players, a new toggle option to double-tap-to-jump for mobile users, and a number of other pertinent bug fixes and improvements.

Happy Midsummer’s! Let the revelries begin!


NEW FEATURES

The Twilight Vale Event Zone has arrived! New items and improvements include:

  • The Fae Regalia Flair Pack: Give your character a little extra pizazz with exciting new cameo/nameplate looks!
  • Fae Raiments Wardrobe Pack: An alluring new outfit which boasts the exotic flavor of the Vale!
  • Forest Fawn Mount: This delightfully nimble creature will carry you far!
  • Regal Fawn Mount: This imperial fawn of the Vale will dazzle!
  • A second Empowered Ladder has been added to the Vale for those who seek more adventure and challenge!
  • The recipe for Whole Apple Crisps has been changed, and now includes the following:
    • Hasty Badlands Pepper
    • Safflower
    • Midsummer Apple
    • Purpond Oil
  • The required amount of Whole Apple Crisps has been reduced from 3.5k to 1.5k, and the reward has been increased from 150 Tears of Vesesia to 200 Tears of Vesesia
  • Special gathering spots have been added to the Vale where Midsummer Apples can be found
  • The amount of Whole Apple Crisps required for the quest, ‘More and More Snacking,’ has been decreased from 23 to 20, and the Tears of Vesesia reward has increased from 6 to 8.
  • New Cooking stations have been added to the Vale

IMPROVEMENTS
  • Changed the primary method of displaying gear and talents to use the former system of "Stat Pools" instead of the raw stat values. We did this in response to a player poll that overwhelmingly preferred Pool values by a margin of nearly 12 to 1.
  • Ardent Time now shows whether it is A.M. or P.M. in 12hr format.
  • Reduced the cooldown of some Ice Wizard feats.

BUG FIXES
  • Fixed the warrior talent "Marat's Vitality" (it was accidentally nerfed) so that now it should be as good as it was before the accidental nerf, but now improved even better.
  • German: fixed missing text for Brutal Strikes (on the trinket)
  • Depths - Mushrooms have a larger collision box than they are
  • Fixed cog depot in village grass showing though
  • Fixed issue that caused the tarantula and rabbit mounts to not make noise while moving.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Ardent Time text to wrap in different languages. The timer should now automatically scale to fit.
  • Fixed waypoint for the boars goal in "Voice Throwing Tonic" quest.
  • Fixed issue that caused webling spider mounts to not make noise while moving.


MOBILE ONLY
  • Added a Toggle for Double-Tap-To-Jump
  • Fixed Ardent Time floats
  • Fixed issue that caused the bag tab to change when moving items from Shared Vault.
  • Mobile icon of Leaper has been fixed.


PC ONLY
  • Fixed Minimaps Ardent Time stops when village teleporters are used

I’m in the thread before it gets locked from folks complaining about the recipe change! :cool:

I think this is great. A nice surprise. No one can be completely done with the quest in the first hour of the event this year!

May I ask what prompted the Ardent Time display change?

I have liked the way it was, it is more natural. Granted I live in Europe, but wouldn't it be better to use the PC/device default time format rather than change to everyone?

The objective was to display a single clock that people in different time zones could use to coordinate events (without having to calculate local time, daylight-savings shenanigans, etc.) Setting it by device time would be the exact opposite of that.

Did just that. Why must it be 5:49 PM from now on?

There is still an option for 24 hour clock. It's just the 12 hour option which now distinguishes am and pm.

I stand corrected. Didn't even notice that you can change the time format. Thank you.

So, uhm...is there anyway to get back inside a running Ladder when you die midway and respawn at portal?

I kinda knew...but hoping there was some way it will be changed in the future...Or was there any specific reason here that the devs made it this way?
Or I hope insta heal pots get sold at the crown shop or somewhere else which has much accessible ways/currency than Darrig coins.
Thanks!

The whole point of the ladder is that you need to climb all the way up.

If you want to continue even after dying you can use a resurrect.

The old stat system that you brought back does absolutely nothing in terms of understanding how much more your feats will be powerful.
The new one we had was very good as it shows % based and one would know how much one would get before diminishing returns. Also, the consumables and trinkets, etc were self-explanatory, wheres now you don't have a clue how much 7000 intellect will give you in mana for example.

Diminishing returns are not fixed, you just added some numbers that are always flat for those who go by them, but still, they don't say much.

The new system we had actually made sense, and it is common sense that having 5 stars legendary stat and adding 10% CDR will not equal that or even close, the same way 6000 flat expertise will not add the same value in CDR or even close to it when added at 30k.

I have no idea why you just don't focus on incorporating diminishing returns in each item for each player so they know how much it will give them with their current setup and leave the fresh new stat system we had this year on.

Now there is a mixed system which is even more confusing for new players.
