    Yay, expansion...
    Curious to see the new stuff and happy for that...
    Not happy about, once more, spending a **** ton more coins on some new crazy overpriced stuff though...

    Remember when expansion threads would get pages and pages of ppl excited? Pepperidge Farm remembers, now the expansions are kinda just meh :expressionless:

    Ofc, that's just my opinion though ^^ Still, thanks for posting kalyst and ready for the patch notes :open_mouth:

    PWI Content Update: Neverfall (v1010) Patch Notes - Released April 11th, 2017

    NEW FEATURES
    *New Zone: The Western Steppes! Explore an all-new zone with hundreds of new quests! Visit the city of Neverfall, and discover what darkness lurks beneath the ancient lands of the Light Empire! Level 100 players at Mirage Sky I can start the quests to enter the Western Steppes in the City of a Thousand Streams.
    *New Cultivation Levels: Chaotic Soul and Celestial Saint! Beyond the paths of Sage and Demon lies a new way, combining the strengths of each into a single, powerful path of cultivation! Players who have completed the Atlas of Time questline in the Western Steppes will receive a quest to speak to either Nibu Ru or the Celestial Savant to begin their new path.
    *New Dungeon: Dawnlight Halls! Delve into the dark sanctum of the Future of Mankind Initiative and put a stop to their unnatural experimentations! Includes more difficult Judgment and Deicide Modes. Requires Chaotic Soul cultivation and Twilight Sky I to enter.
    *New Feature: Arigora Colosseum! Form teams to battle against other players in a no-holds-barred cross-server arena fight to the death! Earn titles, gear, and more! Teams can consist of 3 or 6 players. Level 100 players at Mirage Sky I can sign up with Arigora Agent Khroatis in Archosaur or Neverfall.
    *New Feature: Skill Glyphs! These items can be used to upgrade your skills with additional effects based on the glyph used, which can range from increased damage to converting healing spells into direct damage! There are five glyph types: Golden, Verdant, Ethereal, Sanguine, and Argent. The first Glyph Slot can be unlocked in the Celestial Vale, while the rest can be unlocked in the Western Steppes. Two require Chaotic Soul, and three require Celestial Saint.
    *New Feature: Chronicles! Read the entire history of Perfect World and its major denizens and factions. Unlocked upon completing the Atlas of Time questline in the Western Steppes.

    *Sovereign Seals can now be exchanged for Rank 8 Boundless materials at the Contemplation Forge in Archosaur.

    You mean Rank 9 Boundless ? , because that woud be really nice, i guess it was a good idea to not npc those after all.

  • kalystconquerer#0876 kalystconquerer Forum Crawler Posts: 1,421 Perfect World Employee
    @nowayoutgtx960 Yep it should be Rank 9 Boundless materials. The only option I believe we don't have for exchange is for Adamantine Powder (?) but I'd have to check the forges once it patches through.

    Adamantine Powder is pretty cheap though, yeah?

    Ahahaha, someone beat me to it but I'll go ahead and still link them :3

    hey kalyst do we get a lvling boost item on this new xpansion like Illusionary Crystal or Warfront Supply Crate or new item .i read somewhere that you made a new code for this month but dident see it do we get some new code ?

    wasn't there going to be change to lunar or tt? i dont see anything in patch note
  • kalystconquerer#0876 kalystconquerer Forum Crawler Posts: 1,421 Perfect World Employee
    @bulletman Yes there is actually a code going out to your emails and will be posted on the newspost when it goes live! Everyone both active and inactive players will be receiving the same code to use to get level assisting items!

    Also, spoiler alert, Invite a Friend is back! *throws confetti* For two weeks players will be able to access alot of buffs like Ancient Gifts to assist with leveling and Vitae gain in the new area! A new Community login will also start tomorrow with slightly scaled down hours since we're starting late and that event will also give out Ancient Gifts.

    Also no changes to Lunar or TT in regards to anti APS buffs. The instance people were seeing in CN that looked like Lunar was actually an event instance that players will be seeing later this year!

    kalyst tyvm really made me happy i love it play some of my alts but no way to lvl them cuz of lack of time of work hope you have good day ^^
  • nowayoutgtx960nowayoutgtx960 Posts: 69 Arc User
    @kalystconquerer Oh neat, i was expecting it to be Adamantine powder but its actually the ingot? Even better.

    Rip WC fast spam Drama, They'll be missed.
  • I kinda like the idea of the world chat thing, but to increase the required amount of tele's used per post kinda kills the conversations to be seen in game, especially when something funny is going on or those seeking help with something. There should honestly be a set time limit... like sticking with the regular posting cycles, but only allow a max of 32 or whatever posts per minute then giving the 1-2 minute cooldown. Just making it cost more tele's with this new layout is just going to drive up the price of tele's which are plenty expensive as it is.

    I hope this is not true. Are you crazy? World chat is already dead or nearly dead at times, maybe China servers need this but we sure as hell don't.
    You will drive more players away, as it reduces the ability to form squads, sell items, and entertain each other with banter (yes I know it gets out of hand sometimes but gg this is NOT the way to fix that).
    Please find a way to disable this for our servers.

    Does this mean the glyphs have no effect in PVE? You better clarify this, as I can guarantee most players won't bother with them if they don't.

    @sontzu Glyphing 6 skills will put you into one of 3 orders with Rock-Paper-Scissor bonus damage to eachother and bonus damage to to unaligned players. This is a separate pvp damage multiplier only indirectly related to the skills buffs.​​
  • sontzusontzu Posts: 962 Arc User
    In other words, no effect in PVE.

    Casual PVPers like me will only get easily farmable glyphs, PVE players will ignore them.

    That only leaves serious and elite PVPers.

    Hard to understand how they can make a profit on their investment in developing this

    Skill buffs affect pve and pvp. The extra rock-paper-scissors bonus damage is pvp only.

    @kalystconquerer#0876
    So by this: http://www.pwdatabase.com/cn/recipe/9715
    1 Sovereign Seal + 10 m coin = 2 Oricalcum Ingot.
    But during a sale an Oricalcum Ingot costs 1 gold each which is currently capped at 4m.
    Why would we pay 5m + half a Sovereign Seal for something worth 4m?
    Who does these prices...

    Should make it easier, actually, as we won't have to compete with spammers when making squads/selling stuff, etc.
