edit The Map

  • Three new planes will be added: the Warrens, the Nimbus, and Nifleheim.
  • The Warrens are "below" Stygia. They are considered not-newbie friendly, worse even than Stygia.
    • You will need to perform a blood sacrifice to get in (spend HP).
    • They are relatively easy to travel, and resource-heavy.
    • It is considered always night in the Warrens.
  • The Nimbus is "above" Paradise, in the clouds.
    • It will be difficult to go there--you will need to use beanstalks.
    • There are fewer resources there, but it's slightly more newbie-friendly than the Warrens.
    • It is considered always day in the Nimbus.
    • The Firmament (which comprises most of the Nimbus) counts as water for Elementalists.
    • You can generate lightning in the Nimbus, which will then strike Valhalla
      • There is an Achievement Badge tied to this
      • You can't control where it hits
      • Can knock out power
  • Nifleheim is the Land of the Dead, half Old West and half Transylvania.
    • As such, undead can be summoned anywhere, inside and out.
    • Resources are spread out in towns. Travel can be done between towns on a railroad (like the ferry, but costing more AP)
      • The towns are named Lago, Big Whiskey, Boomtown, Silverado, Dry Gulch, and Necropolis.
    • There is also a huge Enchanted Forest in Nifleheim, which contains Castle Vrykolakas.
    • Even though there is light in Nifleheim, it is considered always night for Revenants.
    • It is about the size of Purgatorio, except it's all one "island."
    • Two Dust Rivers cross the whole of Nifleheim. Both count as water for Elementalists.
    • There is a "toll" to get into this plane.
  • Portals can now cost one (or more) of HP, MP, or AP to enter
  • T3 people will no longer spawn in Valhalla (St. Germaine)
    • They will respawn in the Nimbus & Paradise/Nifleheim & Purgatorio/Warrens & Stygia instead
  • You will now spawn within 10 squares of your stronghold
    • Unless you're T3 and your stronghold's on Valhalla
  • All T3 planes will have places where you can see how the Nexus works
    • ex.: Nifleheim will have places where you can see the death servitors in action

edit Factions

  • Multi-allowed factions are no longer in existence.
  • There will no longer be any faction foci because:
  • Members of a faction get a bonus when they're on territory aligned to their faction.
  • Your stronghold ward is now powered by the infusion in the stronghold square.
    • That's depth, not breadth.
  • Laying down a stronghold will automatically infuse it to a certain depth
  • SH locations regenerate infusion daily
  • You can lay down a stronghold in allied territory
  • There will be a cap on infusion depth.

edit Raiding

  • THIS WILL CHANGE. MASSIVELY. Everything you currently know about raiding will be wrong when Straylight hits.
  • Your faction flag has gained a flag shield.
    • This shield will drop on the stronghold being cleared.
    • It will also drop if you deal enough damage to it.
    • If you leave and come back, then it won't regenerate instantly; it regenerates with a tick.
    • The strength of the flag shield is tied to your karma.
      • That's breadth, not depth, of infusions.
  • There are top-seekrit ideas in the works that may change the idea of a faction as we know it.

edit Skills

  • Revenants are getting "the biggest nerf in the history of the game" (≥-25% acc and a bunch of damage)
