Mystic Test Server Patch Notes
Hello everyone, the Mystic Test Server will be online shortly. There have been a tremendous amount of changes made to most of the systems that make up Turf Battles. As such, we have documented these changes in point form for your reading convenience. Some larger updates will have their own detailed sections.
Please also note that this is not a complete list of all the changes, as we would be writing a short novel if that were to happen. We do also plan to release additional updates as the testing period continues and have plans for other content and quality of life updates once the mystic server is released.
In addition, please take some of these changes with a grain of salt. Specifically changes involving balance changes & cost changes. They are subject to change depending on player feedback throughout the testing period.
We have removed all 300+ content from the Mystic Server for now. We do not have an ETA on when this content may be reintroduced. However, we do want players to enjoy the current existing content before re-releasing the remastered 300+ content. That being said we would expect 300+ content to be at least several months away. Along with this change the following changes have been made:
- Sephiroth Jewelry has been removed.
- Ghost Castle on Channel 3 has been made for levels 200-300 and has no monsters now. (Except during Reaper events)
- Tornado on Channel 3 for levels 161-200 has been removed.
In order to effectively balance character health we have decided to change how Desaus & Hosans work. They now reward their users a percentage of health rather than a flat boost. Depending on the grade of the charm they will now grant a 3%, 6%, or 9% boost.
Health Steal / Mana Steal / Debuff Weapons
Weapons that either steal HP/Mana or apply some sort of debuff (such as Stun) will no longer be applied at the same high rates right away. Instead, players will have to add and upgrade the Attack Success Rate stats on these weapons in order to improve their effectiveness.
We have made it so items rewarded from quests will no longer be able to be traded to players or dropped. This change was made so that players are still able to complete quests for useful items, but do not abuse the system by creating multiple characters.
We have made it so Raw & Refined Materials (such as Wood, Metal, Herbs, Alloy, etc) can no longer be traded between players. Players will still be able to trade the Material Crates that can be purchased from the Instance Shop. In addition, we have also made it easier for players to level up their characters production skills. In other words, it now requires less items to be made to level up and thus much less materials.
- The cost of Fubb Event buffs has been increased.
- We have added a Pet EXP Fubb Event.
- Fubb Events are active on the Test Server (on weekends), but will be disabled for a period of time when the real Mystic Server starts up.
Soccer Event & Ladianes Civil War
- These are active on the Test Server, but will be disabled for a period of time when the real Mystic Server starts up.
Rates & Buffs
- Several TC & Subscription Shop buffs have received nerfs. Most of these reductions can be restored through other means (combining other buffs of the same genre… such as with the Fubb Event or Subscription boosts).
- Drop Rate of level 10 weapons in Rampao has been reduced due to the balance changes.
- There is no longer a difference between Veros & Ladianes warehouses. They can all be accessed from the same NPC.
- We have modified the Warehouse System so that there is room for additional storages.
- Normal users still have access to 10 Warehouses.
- Subscribed users can purchase Warehouse Upgrades from the Subscription shop. These warehouse upgrades will unlock one additional warehouse each time the item is used, up to a maximum of 10 extra storages.
- While you are subscribed you also have access to 3 extra free storages.
- This allows for a total of 23 storages if you purchase all the upgrades and maintain a subscription.
- If your subscription ends, you will still be able to use the storages you gained from the Warehouse Upgrade item, but the 3 bonus storages will be locked until your next subscription.
- We have reduced the potion limit of non-subscription players to 750. Subscription users will have access to the full 1200.
- Subscription players now auto pickup Raw Materials and Leni when they drop from monsters.
- Subscription now receive a 20% production exp buff.
- Subscription users receive a 50% discount on all Fubb events.
- Subscription users now receive 20% pet exp boosts instead of 10%.
- Subscription users have access to 3 additional warehouse slots while they are subscribed.
- Subscription users have the ability to purchase Ladians Grace from the Subscription Shop in order to access Suffering Soul Cave and Rampao Temple instances.
- Subscription users now receive a bonus Instance Coin when they complete an instance.
- Subscription users have an extra 50% drop rate.
There has been a tremendous amount of balance changes.
