Hello there Celeste players! We are back with another Dev Blog.
This time, we will be having a look at some of the new additions to the game with tomorrow's patch!
New Legendary Global Quest: Ashoka's EdictsAs one of the most sought-after Light Armors of all time, Athena's Golden Gorget has historically been a fan favorite and one of the most requested items for a Legendary-version upgrade. Initially, we put this item in Bahram's Lottery, however based on players' feedback, we decided to make it more accessible to all players. To this end, we slightly adjusted the stats on Bahram's Beloved Battle Armor (see below for more details) and instead added a new item as the direct Legendary upgrade; Ashoka's Golden Gorget!
This item is available to all level 40 players, and can be accessed by talking to Marcus Pollux in your Capital City once you reach level 40.
Additionally, you can find more information on this quest by going to the "New Legendary Reward!" section of the main menu.
This is our first attempt at creating limited-edition gear outside of events, running under the theme of Ashoka's Edicts. In order to earn these gifts from the beloved emperor Ashoka, you must overcome his challenges. Based on players' reception and feedback over this, we will be adding more items over time.
Moe's Mystorium is one of the oldest stores in the game. It serves as the main hub for purchasing random chests, particularly for levels below 40, where it has a chance of dropping elusive and highly demanded pieces of gear. We have made adjustments to Moe's Mystorium in a previous developer update not too long ago, but it has been some time since we've did that and now we're making further adjustments based on our observations and player feedback, as well as getting direct feedback from some of the more prominent members of the PvE community.
Moe's Mystorium Adjustments
One of the biggest complaints about Moe's was the sheer number of clicks required to get one of the exclusive items. Another popular point of feedback was that the average amount of Coin required to find one of those exclusive items.
To address both of these issues at the same time, we are increasing the drop rates for all of the exclusive items in all level 10-35 chests. Additionally, we are increasing the overall quality of loot that drops in these chests, to drop far more epic and rare items and significantly fewer uncommon items.
All in all, Moe's Chests will cost about twice as much as they used to, but will drop Legendary (and Moe's-exclusive) items about three times as much, and the number of clicks required to open a Moe's-exclusive item is now about 34% of what it used to be before.
The price increase is also partially compensated by the increased drop rate of rare and epic items, which can be sold to vendors for higher prices, effectively reducing the amount of coin players actually end up spending.
Last but not least, in order to keep the price increase pattern consistent between all chests, we are also increasing the price (and quality of droprate) of level 40 chests.
We are hoping to see players try their luck at Moe's Mystorium a lot more than before with all of these changes!
Sacks of Coin and Moe's Lucky ChestsRandom Chests aren't the only thing you can buy at Moe's Mystorium. One other chest that is also available in Moe's are Lucky Chests. These chests allow you to try your luck at getting one Sack of Coin (or just a Coin if luck isn't on your side) ranging anywhere from 1c to 25000c.
Seeing that the original drop rates for these sacks of coin was very low and didn't make for a very fun experience, we have increased the price of the Lucky Chest, but also significantly improved the quality of the sacks of coin found inside it. This is similar to the approach we've taken to the other chests, where people have to click far less often and get better quality loot at the same time.
Furthermore, we have added unique icons for every single Sack of Coin (and the one single Coin) so that it's easier to tell them apart.
Last, but certainly not least, we've added Legendary Sacks of Coin, available in 3 different versions, 50,000c, 75,000c and 100,000c versions. These sacks are currently only available in Moe's Lucky Chests and cannot be found anywhere else. Good luck collecting them all!
(PF2K's Personal Note: The first person who collects every single type of Sack of Coin (and the Coin, don't forget the Coin) and sends me a screenshot of it over Discord will be eligible for a fully maxed Master Assassin's Gauntlet. Literally, the perfect MAG. - No Photoshopping, though! Don't even try. | UPDATE: Flutters wins the challenge! Congratulations.)
Small Adjustments to Some Lottery Gear PiecesTo close this blog out, we would like to share with you the new stats for these two Lottery items. The change to the Battle Armor was done in order to remove it from the position of the direct Legendary upgrade to Athena's Golden Gorget, and the change to the Arm Guard was done based on players' feedback, who were mentioning that this item was almost never chosen over Bahram's Brisk Boots.
These changes will also affect every existing instance of these items, so enjoy your buffs!
We also plan to post the next Indian Developer Blog next week (or the one after) so stay tuned for more Indian news soon.
