Hello Dear Legacy,

I feel like the last update was a stir in this giant soup called Legacy.

I'll try to explain the intentions of this update and the actual changes that were made because overall I feel it wasn't understood by the community as much.
I had intended to post a blog but didn't have the time, so sorry on that from my part.

1 - Gang T4 weapons are out, They were rebalanced couple of times and I feel like we should try em out.
I did read all the feedback about ritual dagger and warlord katana, my itention were that they would have higher damage compared to their gun counterparts, therefore they recieved a buf of 6 damage.

Berserk ability:
Introducing a new mechanic that counts damage, if you get 100k damage on the weapon (Yap it was nerfed) you can activate the weapon to have +20% weapon stats (AFTER crystals+mod calculations) for 2 hours.
It has a 7 day cooldown.
All damage is counted after you press Activate so all damage dealt within these 2 hours are counted towards the next rage.

2- Armor stablization,
The older armor formula as I see it is a defect, it didn't work.
Therefore I planned and tested carefully a new formula that would work for everyone but still make the previous feeling for fights.

This created meaningful stat and rebalanced armors to have a favor based on their stat.

THIS IS STILL A HOT POTATO
Meaning - the stats are still work in progress, Live is a larger scale which affects people more and I never said the current stats are pefect, we will rebalance them and already tested readjustments.
Before making these readjustments I'm still observing how it affects people and we're thinking of ways to introduce fairness to this change so please be patient.

The intentions are still in place:
HF - If you prefer tankier build but you get penelty on dodge.
DL - You want more dodge.
SG1 - You want a balanced build with Def.

It didn't change the intention of the armors just buffed them according to their choice.
Overall players feel that armors are more meaningful and HF is a valid choice now.
This part of the update was a success, Before that I rarely saw someone run a HF armor.
And I'm happy to see people experimenting and choosing an armor

For all other armors, all armor values were multiplied by 1.7 to accomodate to the new formula.
This didn't affect anything just rebalanced their armor value to the same feeling as before.

3. Damage statistics
As I said in previous posts we now count every damage dealt by weapons and damage takne by armors.
We're still thinking of fun features to do with these stats, expect some fun variances that include new tasks and rewards

4. Item abilities
In the last poll people liked the idea of abilities and we'll introduce more to existing weapons, this will make them valid again, this includes:
Railgun T2, Scythe + Scythe T2, Chain blade and C.Sword.

5. Combat updates.
Everyone agreed that combat was stale and boring, everyone got to their end game build and nothing changes - Then I made my first poll about "What kind of updates you want to see".
The conclution was - players want more choices, more builds and more variances.

The focus of these updates are just that, to create more variances, cool choices, second builds and maybe even 3rd builds.
Not all builds are going to be 50/50 but that's called Balanced imbalance.
I want to create more meaningful choices and things you can keep testing and playing with.

What to expect?
More item abilities, more attack types and more items in generally - Weapons, miscs and Gang items.


P.s
I encourage you to send me a PM in discord or Legacy if you feel like something isn't understood or you want more explenation on some things like how I tested and designed them or if you just wanna have a chat it's cool too. The coffee is on you

See you in the next update <3

"I've been rocking HF last few years as I knew this update was coming "
Salty
"you didnt bring variety, you just made hf absolutely broken"
Ayo
"should include C.Bombs for abilities too otherwise its unfair to those who play with projectile. C.Sword & Railgun come from the same source as C.Bombs."
Owl
"Ayo you're right, C.bombs need something too "
EliteRoy
"https://prnt.sc/10cx9f7 Seems like vbows need a min damage increase with this armor bs."
Aaron
"The update to make people actually make a full build instead of slappng things together, love it!"
Shysta
"hell yeah JoeBloggs. Hellforged armor since day 1. "
FatTony
"Holy snap! The amount of changes and updates for the game are amazing! I am always astonished at the dedication the Devs have and the amount of energy and time which they put into the game upgrades!"
FatTony
"Forget about complaints, go and try the changes out first; then PM/Ticket the Devs with your comments, suggestions, observations and results of the updates so that the Devs can fine tune them. "
FatTony
"Players need to appreciate and support the efforts and time which the Devs put into the game upgrades, otherwise the upgrades may come to a screeching halt! Then what will the players do and say? "
Ryu
"Quick fix on the gang weapons. "
Owl
"Thank you Tony I like the positive energy! "
