A Very Merry Realm is back in action and is active until January 6th, Monday noon (EST)

It has a weekly limit of successful attempts set at 70 and a daily limit at 12.

You might be wondering: 12 daily does not add up to 70 if you did it every day in a week.

It's 12 for two reasons:

a) I want to limit the number of times people do it in a day too so that Bob can get some rest.
b) It's 12 so that if you miss a couple today or tomorrow, you can still max out your weekly limit by maxing out your daily limit on the other days.


Drop tables for Granny, Santa, and the Phantom santa have been updated. It's very close to what I posted in the Raid forum thread with some minor changes.

Normally I'm very secretive about these things but since this has been discussed anyway and I'm generous, I'll share a few tidbits:

1) Granny's guaranteed drop is now an Epic Blueprint and she also has an Ab Dye in her table.
2) Santa's guaranteed drop is... a form of energy (I imagine this is going to be controversial)
3) Phantom santa also has a (generous, imo) chance to drop Ab Dye too on the final kill.

I did mention you will see the use of Phantom Essence soon... it's not directly tied to this raid but very soon you shall know. Perhaps the answers lie somewhere else?

As always, let me know if any bugs arise. I've tested things here and there but the raid system has been through a lot of changes since Day 1, especially over the last couple of months. While almost all changes have been backwards compatible, just let me know if anything comes up.

This is a multi-purpose blog. First I'll announce that the ghost/zombie, Stramineus, and Joe's Halloween items will be disappearing on the 10th. Hunt those ghosts while you can!

===

Next, some small updates/bug fixes.

The padding on forum posts was bugged after the anonymous forum update. I fixed that (also added 10 px padding on top of forum posts, up from the 5px before. I think it looks nicer).

I added the active skills on a drone run on mouseover of the drones module and on the drone bays page.

I buffed the drone skill Evasion, so that it rolls Reliability * 3 instead of 2. With 25 Reliability, you'd have a 75% chance of evading danger, up from 50%. It was one of the least used skills, so hopefully this encourages more players to try it. Heavy Forcefield and Nanobot Repairs are also underused, but not sure how to go about buffing them.

===

Finally, everybody go sign up in Wolf's Werewolves thread in Games Forum. It'll be fun, I promise.

While the outfits aren't available just yet, that doesn't mean a few other things can't happen in the meantime.

First off, the holiday season has begun. Halloween right around the corner and Christmas not to far behind. That said, a somewhat familiar face is going to make her appearance once again to try and terrorize the Hive. You know her as Shadress.

For those unaware, Shadress is a mysterious entity that made her first appearance some time ago and for some reason mostly manifests when there is a surge of power or when Halloween is near. Don't ask why. It's one of the more unknown things about her.

Shadress seems to change her combat style slightly each time we see her. The biggest problem is her overwhelming power when she first appears. In the past it has taken getting her to at least 60% fatigue for it to be a fair fight. This time however she doesn't seem to be sporting that much power. She has sacrificed a massive portion of that power for an overwhelming amount of HP. What will make this particularly challenging is that once the first attack against her is initiated, you will be on a strict time limit to take her down.

If you put forth an noticeable effort to take her down, you will be rewarded. If you get the killing blow, you will receive some extra goodies. The killing blow is not required for the banner, but it will definitely make your chances better. Also Shadress will mostly stay on a square that is neutral so Avatars are able to phase to her more easily. If she has to move for whatever reason, the timer will pause until she relocates and people follow her.

Oh, and don't worry. I will get Zorg to add the Halloween costumes next time I see him
