So, there has been an update on how Astral Bomb and Throwing Blades work in the WLs. Since it's very annoying to test these on my own, they're up on Dev so I can ask for your help.

It really just takes 2 people to test out if these work as intended, so please do if you have the time. The changes are as follows.



Astral Bomb changes:

  • Advancement of "Astral Bombing" daily quest requires damage to be done to at least 1 target

  • Astral Bomb will not affect targets with an active Radiance or Shield

  • Targets that had Shield on will have it break if hit by an Astral Bomb

  • Damage dealt by Astral Bomb will now progress "Deal 750 damage in wasteland, no return" (will reset if 750 damage is not achieved with the Astral Bomb)

  • Kills made with Astral Bomb will now progress "Kill 3 players you are at war with" for each target killed that your gang is at war with

  • Kills made with Astral Bomb will now reward WFPs as if they were killed via an attack

  • Kills made with Astral Bomb will now reward Misc XP as if they were killed via an attack

  • Kills made with Astral Bomb will now steal a Phantom item if possible (Achievements and Honor progressions)

  • If Phantom Item is stolen, due to player's death, it will be given to a random participating player immediately upon gaining it

  • Kills made with Astral Bomb will now add the target to list of killed players for the day


Throwing Blades:

  • Throwing Blades will not affect targets with an active Radiance

  • Damage dealt by Throwing Blades will now progress "Deal 750 damage in wasteland, no return"

  • Kills made with Throwing Blades will now progress "Kill 3 players you are at war with" if your gang is at war with theirs

  • Kills made with Throwing Blades will now reward WFPs as if they were killed via an attack

  • Kills made with Throwing Blades will now reward Misc XP as if they were killed via an attack

  • Kills made with Throwing Blades will now steal a Phantom item if possible (Achievements and Honor progressions)

  • Kills made with Throwing Blades will now add the target to list of killed players for the day




If you find a bug, umm... PM me. Or make a thread. Something. I'm always around.

""Throwing Blades will not affect targets with an active Radiance" removed the only good thing about throwing blades "
Rage
"Thank God they are doing something about the wasteland lag!"
HappyDays
"wfp should never be given to astral bomb. the reward is having to bypass trying to kill someone the old fashioned way and just wiping them out with this. now they get rewarded for doing this lol "
matt770
"Not that I fight, but throwing blades hitting through radiance was actually fun lmao"
dagreek
"Welp, ya just killed the effectiveness of throwing blades. dag no like. I could be made agreeable if friendly fire is brought back for throwing blades..."
Peaches
"Not only should throwing blades be able to go through rad, they should also break shields. Astral bomb should not give wfps. "

"A counter point as to Astral Bomb giving WFPs and Misc XP is that we get them for literally just sitting on a square. Getting a kill with Astral Bomb isn't exactly common either."
Larry
"Love how there is never a public vote for any of these changes "
Albel
"Honestly glad to see Throwing Blades not go through Radiance. Went against the whole "Prevents all damage" part of Radiance."
rollin340
"So many people complaining about a bugfix. Radiance is supposed to make you invulnerable, and you all know it. "
Bob
"Rad is already stupidly over tuned, if you want to fix it change the description. // Bomb giving WFP I like, you're already sacrificing a full heal and 3mins to re-enter, and you did get a kill."
Bob
"Blog comments isn't the best place for discussion so I made a post in main forum if people want to give depth to their thoughts "
Tiamat
"Change "Hide" to not grant WFP plz"
Bongo
"I refuse to believe this many people actually care about throwing blades and astral bomb KEKW"
