Tomb of Annihilation Preview Patch Notes: NW.85.20170612a.3 - Updated 6/23

terramakterramak Posts: 715Member Cryptic Developer
Edit 2017-06-23: The shard has been updated with the version NW.85.20170612a.3. Patch notes are in the following post.

Highlights

New Campaign: Jungles of Chult
A mysterious plague has claimed the lives of many across the Sword Coast, and there's no sign of a reprieve to come. A hint, carried by a suspicious source, points toward the peninsula of Chult, far to the south of Neverwinter. Build a team, start an expedition… and try not to die.

Get more detail and provide feedback here: Official Feedback: M12 Campaign - Jungles of Chult
And here: Official Feedback Thread: Chult Adventure Zones

Dev Blog: Developer Blog: Jungles of Chult Campaign


New Dungeon: Tomb of the Nine Gods
Currently not accessible on the NeverwinterPreview shard. Check back later for details!

Official Feedback Thread coming when the dungeon is available!


Quest Journal Improvements
The Quest Journal has seen an update in a similar fashion to Sword Coast Chronicle in the previous module! Among the improvements are the ability to group quests by zone, to search for a specific quest, and to filter quests as well.

Official Feedback Thread coming soon!


Armor Penetration and Damage Vulnerability Debuff Changes
A backend overhaul has been made to how Armor Penetration works, both to improve server performance and make powers interact more consistently with the stat. In addition, damage vulnerability debuffs have been made more consistent as well.

Among the changes, Armor Penetration can no longer exceed the enemy's armor value, and the 200% hard cap on damage vulnerability debuffs has been changed to a 300% soft cap, though it will be more difficult to reach the 200% point.

And here: Official Feedback Thread: M12 Armor Pen Changes and PvP


Shimmering Lockbox
Players who open their Adventurer's Reward box at level 20 will now receive three Shimmering Lockboxes! A pack of three free Shimmering Keys may be claimed from the Zen Market in order to open these Lockboxes.

Get more detail and provide feedback here: Official Feedback - M12 - Shimmering Lockbox


Private PvP Queues
Players may now use the Queue system to create private PvP matches between pre-arranged teams! 5v5 and 10v10 matches are currently supported. This should allow player teams to engage in PvP under their own terms, whether for build, power, or composition testing, or just for fun or practice.

Private PvP matches do not have victory or loss rewards associated with them.

Get more detail and provide feedback here: Official Feedback Thread: M12 Private PvP Queues



Known issues
  • If players leave the intro quest without finishing it, they may be unable to return to the quest map.
  • Private PvP queues: There are currently rewards hooked up to private PvP matches; they will not have rewards once the feature is released.

    bad so far for me:

    fishing realy, thats what made stop playing somi(i only do weekly in somi, and when im generous to myself i do dailies ^^)
    ----------------------------edit

    noticed seal of protector - seal trader in new main city, its selling relic gear and epic rings from skt but no elven gear there, @terramak have the devs thought of the player that dont have gear for lvl 70 first time toon? checked seal trader misc option from shop, ty for the cheap prices there, unless its up for discussion the price values of the ingredients @terramak.

    Is shifting broken, or double-tapping to dodge in lieu of shifting? If double-tapping to dodge isn't working, this bug exists live and all you need to do is access options to turn it back on.

    The bug is that it randomly becomes unselected in the first place. Replication steps, I'm clueless.

    First of all.
    It looks good campaign - map - town. The new town reminds me the agrabah from Aladdin :p

    I dont see much but i see the new armors and new legendary rings with 510 item lvl.
    1) ALL new armor set for DC the coif and surcoat have power-critical-armor pene stats....why?
    Cuisses and Braces ok they have power recovery....at least its something.
    2) Now for new leg rings...why leg ring with item lvl 510 have lower stats from 435 item lvl leg rings???????? and why ALL new rings have power-max hp stats???? that need a change pls.

    You still fix it the same way. It's not a new bug, but a carried-forward one in the base build.

    I am almost 99,99% sure you are aware of this, but if you don't know the full description of the bugs (well i don't either) here are some details:
    The debuff is not only 18% but yes two debuffs, 1 for 18% and 1 for 9%.
    **

    Edit: I was not the person that originally found the bug, i think that's worth mention.


    **
    I tried almost all powers, here is what i found:

    HR some powers make the stacking stop
    SW the problem is on pillar of power, after using pilar of power the buff will stop activate.
    DC will be unable to stack after around a minute of continuous encounters use ( only tried 1 time).
    GWF - fine;
    CW - Stoped working, tying to figure out why.
    GF - fine
    OP- Fine
    TR - Same thing as SW except the encounter that blocks future procs is smoke bomb.

    It's just a wild guess but probably powers that create an entity fixed on the ground are the responsable, not aoe's that's for sure, tried a lot of them. And just by accident roots even without trapper feats are also entities right?

    for pve maybe but its FAR superior to gwfs, sws and pallies in pvp. just saying its a different world out there.
    Find me in game if you want and send me a domination/ gaunt invite. If you are good and im not busy ill play with you. Im not an elitist ill play with almost anyone.
  • doublea2015doublea2015 Posts: 924Member Arc User
    @terramak on the new mount maybe instead of power and armor pen do crit and armor pen? just a sugjestion, but power works, just another option to look at

    OH NICE THANK YOU FOR ADDING ZOOM IN AND OUT WITH MOUSE SCROLLER

    Private PvP Queues could you guys just make a simple 1v1 option when right clicking on players as well so you can load a chosen map and have a 1v1 if you wanted
  • kiraskytowerkiraskytower Posts: 194Member Arc User
    OK ... I have to say that the environment team did a great job on this. What I have seen so far of the new module is beautiful! The town, the jungle ... the look and feel of it is right on.

    the zoom in zoom out feature is nice but the range seems really limited. The playermade zoom feature via binding FOV on mouse wheel works a lot better

    Is there a way to turn the zoom feature off? I have mount and jump bound to mouse buttons 4 an 5, respectively.

    Zoom in and out should be respectfully set to your mouse scroller due to size of new mounts coming out, but yes you can change it and set FOV

    Just wanted to note that the dust particle systems in the ruins are far more graphically intensive than the rest of the area. If you have your settings set to about half what your system can take (so that it never drops frames), it will drop to around 5-10 FPS while standing near these particle systems.

    These particle systems are only in the ruins as far as I can tell--the small instances you can enter for some quests. One of them is filled with goblins, another with Thayans. There are likely more, but those are the two I found. The dust particles are a brown color, similar to the walls, and the two or so I found where located near the center of the room.

    asterdahl said that Protector seal items would be BtA. However the relic armors, even if purchased for another class, and Ostorian rings are all BtC on pickup. Is this an oversight after the existing BtC items were added to the vendor?
