The crafting menu has been redesigned to make it much easier to understand and to give players easy access to look up the items they are trying to craft.
You can now see the algorithm for what your craft chances are at.
Menu selections will automatically turn red and the button will disappear if you don’t have enough resources to craft the item, and alternatively, will reappear should you acquire more resources.
Players can now click on the item they are crafting in the menu for a breakdown of what the item looks like in game, and what the base stats are for those items.
Some craft skills like alchemy can take advantage of our “craft multiple” addition, where you can make hundreds of potions in a click of a button!
Players have the ability to use the resources in their home without having them on your person. Players must set this in their house menu and they must be in your house.
Players can also allow friends and even co-owners to access the resources as well, making the possibility for Guild Houses even stronger!
Town and Dungeon Capturing
On Ultima Shards T2A, both Dungeons and Towns can be captured!
If a Guild would like to capture a Town or Dungeon, they must sit on the Altar for several minutes. Once you enter an altar, and you are not in your Guild’s militia, you are automatically added to “Temporary Militia” in which opposing Guilds who are in militia or temp militia CAN attack you. Your progress will also be announced to the server globally, so beware. Use this if your looking for a fight or just want to take part in some of the bonuses!
Guilds that capture a Town will see 1% of the town’s revenue in taxes turn into Guild Gold, allowing them to purchase perks and companions quicker than usual.
Guilds that capture a Town will automatically get increased Guild XP per monster kill and Increased Gold Drops from monsters!
Be Weary! Many Guilds use this system as a shoutout to other Guilds to get them to participate in PvP!
We have gotten rid of the old Slayer Spawning system on items.
Players will now be able to craft “Monster Essence Absorbers” as a GM Tinkerer. To do this, players must have a special item called “Slayer Plans” and some resources.
Once the “Monster Essence Absorber” has been crafted, it will automatically spawn with a random slayer associated to it.
These items themselves are NOT slayers. However, they can turn any weapon into a slayer. Each one of these items has a specific amount of monsters that need to be killed as well as a specific type(s) of monsters. You must also WEAR the talisman in order to absorb the kills.
Once the Absorber has been filled, you will notice an effect around you, and you will be able to double click the absorber and apply it to a weapon of your choice.
Slayer Plans can be obtained from Paragon Creatures as well as from Champion Spawn Raffle Items.
In Ultima Shards: T2A, ALL pets are levelable. Whether its a chicken, a dragon, or a hell hound, players will be able to level all of their pets.
We also have the pet bonding system in place, however, we have changed the way it functions.
Players will now automatically bond their pets when they have reached Level 5, they will NOT bond traditionally by feeding them and waiting a week.
In order to make up for this, we have sped up the pet XP gain rates on T2A as opposed to AOS.
Every time you level up your pet, it will gain 2.5% power increase per level. This increases its stats and skills. By default after tame, it has 2.5% increase, and can achieve a max of level 10 (25% power increase).
This will make for some interesting chicken fights!
