Live Event: Wild Hunt
Image

Every year Orion's rebirth in the Wood Elf realm of Athel Loren marks the start of Spring. With Orion's rebirth the Wild Hunt begins, as elves across Athel Loren join the King in the Woods in riding forth and purging the forest of its enemies. This is all done as an offering to the elven God of the Hunt, Kurnous. Enemies of Kurnous beware, for you may become an offering during the Wild Hunt.

The Wild Hunt is upon the Elves, and Ulthuan is already sodden with blood. Hunters stalk the fields and forests in search of rare and savage prey, to demonstrate their skill to the God of the Hunt and perhaps gain his favor. Others seek merely to glimpse the fabled White Stag and gain Kurnous's blessing. But Kurnous is a true hunter, and incurring his wrath carries a price ... of poetic justice.

Kurnous has taken particular interest in the activities of the mere mortals, ever eager to find which hunter is truly worthy. As the Wild Hunt commences, vines from the World Root have sprung up in Ellyrion. Beyond those vines lay the Hunter's Vale, sanctuary of Kurnous. All who dare can enter to see if they are worthy to face the Lord of the Hunt. Though be forewarned, nature itself will turn against those who enter the Hunter's Vale.


Travel to Ellyrion, the kingdom beloved by Kurnous, and find the Vale Vines to his inner sanctum, the Hunter's Vale. During the Wild Hunt, some may be lucky enough to catch sight of the White Stag as it wanders along the southern coast and ranges of Ulthuan. Join the Wild Hunt in honour of Kurnous and prove to the Lord of the Hunt if you are worthy of being a hunter, or the prey.

This event will run between noon May 3rd and noon May 13th Altdorf (Server) time.

Rewards
Basic: [Stag Skull Trophy]
Advanced: [Bleeding Hart Charm] (Check the armoury for other variants)
Elite: [Blessed Hide of Kurnous] Preview here, or the Deepwood Cloak here

Quest Rewards: The Stag of Kurnous or the Stag of Isha (or the Daemonwood Disc for the Magus), live-event themed limited time mounts. You can preview the Mounts here and Magus Disc here.

We would like to thank our artists for their continued contributions to RoR. Thanks to their efforts we were able to introduce a new cloaks.


The Deepwood Forest Dragon
A forest dragon has made its presence known in the forest realm of Avelorn. Join your allies to defeat this forest dragon in the hopes of prying some of its precious scales off of its hide! Dragon scales can be traded at the Live Event vendors in Altdorf and the Inevitable City for new cloaks which you can preview here. Players can also acquire a quest from the Deepwood Forest Dragon to acquire other components for other cloaks. Who knows what else the Deepwood Forest Dragon hides beneath its wings... perhaps a puppy.


Live Event Quests
The Wild Hunt includes quests to acquire your sacred-stag mounts. These quests are broken up into four brackets based on your character level and have different tasks accordingly. Make sure to read any text in all-caps. Additionally, there is a repeatable quest requiring players to beat the Hunter's Vale, with unique limited-time prizes. All quests are available from Live-Event related NPCs: Hethoac Evertrue in the Altdorf Market Square, or Karalith Raemari in the Inevitable City Apex.


Live Event Shoppe & Returning Dyes
Ah beautiful colors, what would the world be without beautiful colors? Better without blinding yellow no doubt. This Wild Hunt 32 colors are returning to RoR, two of which are spec-tacular dyes which may make a leprechaun out of a dwarf. Ten of these new dyes are added permanently in the game as drops from the Hunter's Vale bosses; four new optional heroes have been added to Hunter's Vale for those seeking to expand their dye pursuits. The remaining dyes, along with some unique items, are available at the live event vendor. Trophies are displayed in this link for your convenience. In the spirit of the Wood Elves, all good things are fleeting, cherish them while you can. Order players can find Thealyn Rosethorn in the Altdorf Market. Destruction players can find Rakaan Savageblood in the Inevitable City Apex.

Dye previews are available here towards the bottom, but please be aware that the colors may apply differently on different base armor colors. We recommend to use an addon such as Pocket Palette to see how this dye will look on your armor, but please note it may take a few days before the add-on is updated. These colors were inspired largely from official publications, such as the Wood Elf 8th Ed. army book.



Combat and Careers

General Changes and Fixes

- AoE ability target selection is changed to prioritize the closest targets.

- Hate generation from healing has been reduced by 30%, to help in both PvE and RvR Sieges.

- The cone of the Challenge ability is increased from 45 degrees to 90 degrees.

A slight increase of the cone of Challenge to strike a better balance between being able to affect a targeted group, but not being able to challenge full warbands with just one challenge.


AoE radius changes

The following abilities have had their radius reduced from 30 to 25 ft.

This is a compensation for the new ability system calculating the radius of abilities that hit all around the player differently than the old ability system. The old system calculated distance in different ways for circle AoE, cone AoE and single target, while the new system uses the same method for all of them. This led mostly to problems with abilities that already had large radiuses, hence for now we only change abilities with a 30 ft radius. We will continue to look at the strength of all AoE abilities and their ranges.

Proc Changes

To allow for better understanding of game mechanics we aim to have all procs function the same. Last patch was a first step, but now we tackle a couple of weird exceptions.

From now, all damage procs can no longer crit or proc other procs. This affects the following procs:

Slayer - Retribution
Sword Master - Wall of Darting Steel
White Lion - Hunter’s Strike
Black Orc - ‘Ave Another One
Black Orc - Can’t Hit Me!
Choppa - Bring It On

Last patch damage procs were changed to no longer be affected by damage increasers. While this was a very necessary change to some procs, there is also a group of procs that were already weak before this change. With the following adjustments we aim to make these tactics and abilities more viable and in some cases give some compensation for the previous change.

To allow for better balancing certain procs now scale the player's Damage Bonus (DB).
The following numbers are based on maxed out Mastery Tree values!

MDPS - Jagged Edge - from 3 x 202 to 3 x (149 + 0.5 x DB) damage
High Elves - Centuries of Training - from 3 x 84 damage to 3 x 101 damage (fixed tooltip to “with direct damage”)
Chaos - Backlash - from 5 x 50 damage to 5 x 74 damage and now procs when you are being attacked, like tooltip says, instead of when taking damage.
Bright Wizard - Lingering Fires - from 5 x (50 + 0.45 x DB) to 5 x (75 + 0.45 x DB) damage
Bright Wizard - Playing With Fire - from 375 to 500 damage
Knight of the Blazing Sun - Biting Blade - from 5 x 70 to 5 x (60 + 0.45 x DB) damage
Warrior Priest - Guilty Soul - from 4 x (150 + 1.0 x DB) to 4 x (175 + 1.0 x DB) damage
Witch Hunter - Blessed Bullets - from (337 + 1.5 x WDPS) to (375 + 1.5 x WDPS) damage
Witch Hunter - Fanatical Zeal - from 262 to 352 damage
Engineer - Tangling Wire - from 6 x 41 to 6 x (44 + 0.25 x DB) damage
Engineer - Hollow Points - from 5 x (81 + 0.45 x DB) to 5 x (90 + 0.5 x DB) damage
Archmage - Dispel Magic - from 225 to 247 damage
Sword Master - Potent Enchantments - from 4 x 135 to 4 x (88 + 0.35 x DB) damage
Sword Master - Wall of Darting Steel - from 150 to 187 damage
Chosen - Tainted Wound - from 337 to 498 damage
Magus - Infernal Pain - from 3 x (82 + 0.75 x DB) to 3 x (99 + 0.75 x DB) damage. Additionally changed to deal Spirit damage.
Marauder - Gift of Savagery - from 5 x 168 to 5 x (81 + 0.45 x DB) damage
Marauder - Touch of Rot - from 187 to 352 damage
Marauder - Touch of Instability - from 348 to 390 damage
Zealot - Waves of Chaos - from 150 to (150 + 0.75 x DB) damage
Black Orc - Loudmouth - from 225 to (172 + 0.5 x DB) damage
Shaman - Mork’s Touch - from 225 to 250 damage

Sorcerer - Shades of Death - from 150 to 200 damage

Witch Elf - Vehement Blades - from 187 to 277 damage
Witch Elf - Treacherous Assault - from 262 to 352 damage

Balance Changes

- Grudges - Internal Cooldown of building Grudge when you are being attacked reduced from 1.0s to 0.5s.

- Heavy Blow - Damage Bonus scaling initial hit changed from 0.75 to 1.0. Damage Bonus scaling of DoT changed from 0.75 for all Grudge levels to 0.25 - 0.50 - 0.75 - 1.0 for 25+ - 50+ - 75+ - 100 Grudge.

- Oathstone - Now additionally gives 6s of Immovable to you and your Oath Friend if they are within 50 ft.

- Avenging The Debt - Now additionally grants 3s of slow and root immunity.

First, Heavy Blow is now changed to scale better with Grudge. This is a buff if you are above 75 Grudge and a nerf in damage if you are below.

Additionally we aim to buff the middle tree as Oathstone was quite an underwhelming ability. Giving yourself and your Oath Friend immunity to roots and knockbacks can be extremely valuable if timed correctly in fights.



Image
Balance Changes

- Down Ya Go - Now requires da’ Gud Plan! and leads to da’ Best Plan!

- Git Out! & Fly Gits! - Now requires da’ Best Plan! and leads to No Plan after dis!

- Less Stabbin’ Me - Reworked to give 10% Parry with an additional 5% Parry in da’ Gud Plan! and 10% Parry in da’ Best Plan!

- Arm Breaka - No longer needs da’ Gud Plan!, instead now leads to da’ Gud Plan!. Base damage increased from 112 to 150. Now additionally gives the drained Action Points to your allied target.

- You Wot!?!!! Removed and replaced by Chop Fasta!.

- Chop Fasta! - New 13 pt ability in Path of Da’ Brawler: Blessing. 35 AP. 5 ft range. Instant. No CD. Requires Great Weapon. Needs da’ Gud Plan!. Leads to da’ Best Plan!! - You hit your target for (225 + 1.5 x DB + 1.5 x WDPS) damage and increase your auto attack speed by 50% for 10 seconds. If you are behind the target, you will almost always deal critical damage.

Similar to the Sword Master, the knock down and knock backs trade stances. We believe that having knock down on the second stance will allow for more playmaking possibilities.
Less Stabbin’ Me is reworked to be less reliant on your stance. As Black Orc already has a 10% block tactic, it is changed to parry and is a possible replacement to regain some of your passive defenses lost with the removal of You Wot!?!!
Speaking off, we felt like You Wot!?!!! just did way too many things at once. No class should need such strong buffs with such high uptime. In its place is a new ability with a familiar name. It is a strong second stance ability increasing your auto attack speed.
At last Arm Breaka is changed to first stance ability and now gives the AP removed to your allied target.



Image
Balance Changes

- Furious Stompin’ - Initial Hit base damage increased from 125 to 150. The second, third and fourth hit have their base damage reduced from 125 to 100 and their damage bonus scaling reduced from 1.0 to 0.75. Overall this is a nerf of roughly 14% in total damage.

An adjustment to Furious Stompin’ to slightly reduce the AoE burst damage potential of this particular skill.


Image
Balance Changes

- Staggering Impact - Cooldown reduced from 30 to 10 seconds. Base damage increased from 50 to 74. Weapon DPS scaling increased from 0 to 0.45.

By buffing this very underwhelming ability, the KotBS now has three strong options as 13 point abilities in their mastery trees, giving them maximum specialisation variability.


Image
Balance Changes

- Warrior Priest - Guilty Soul: Can now be procced by any damaging ability. The damage increase now additionally increases the damage of your auto attacks. The player now only gets the damage stacks when wearing a Great Weapon.

This change allows DPS Warrior Priests to use more abilities in their kit without running the risk of losing their Guilty Soul stacks. SnB Warrior Priests can now use the tactic for the damage over time component, but won’t get the extra damage stacks.


Image
Balance Changes

- Oppression - Now additionally reduces damage taken of group members within 100 ft by 15% for 5 seconds.

- Tzeentch’s Reflection - No longer buffs your willpower and initiative. Instead it gives the following effect: Group members within 100 ft become surrounded by a magical barrier for 10 seconds, which will absorb up to 1162 magical damage for each person. Action Point cost increased from 20 to 35.

While overall Chosen is still in a decent spot, their 13 pt abilities feel rather weak. With other tanks getting buffs, it makes sense to take a look at these abilities as well.

Oppression can now be used to reduce incoming burst damage on your group.

Tzeentch’s Reflection is now an ability allowing you to counter magical ranged damage for your group.



Image
Balance Changes

- Touch of Instability - No longer triggers on Heal over time ticks.


Image
Balance Changes

- Crashing Wave - Now knocks down on the initial. The initial hit is now fired instantly on pressing the ability. Now counts as direct damage. Also no longer gives Unstoppable (bug fix).

- Crashing Wave - Now requires Improved Balance and leads to Perfect Balance.

- Mighty Gale - Now requires Perfect Balance and leads to Normal Balance.

- Hoeth’s Tempest - Now further increases the power of the knockback.

- Redirected Force - Now deals (150 + 0.67 x DB + 1.0 x WDPS) damage to all targets in front of you within 20 ft (220 degrees) and interrupt any spells they are casting. Cooldown increased from 5 to 10s.

- Crushing Advance - No longer interrupts. Instead Block chance is increased from 5% to 10%.

- Perfect Defenses - Reworked to give 5% Block with an additional 5% Block with Improved Balance and 10% Block with Perfect Balance.

- Calming Winds - Reworked to give 10% Disrupt with an additional 5% Disrupt with Improved Balance and 10% Disrupt with Perfect Balance.

- Ether Dance - Moved to 9 points in Path of Khaine

- Phoenix’s Wing - Moved to 5 points in Path of Khaine. No longer requires Improved Balance, instead now leads to Improved Balance. No longer requires Great Weapon. Action Point cost increased to 40.

- Sapping Strike - Moved to 13 points in Path of Khaine and reworked to: Hex. 35 AP. 5 ft range. Instant. No CD. Requires Great Weapon. Requires Improved Balance. Leads to Perfect Balance. - You deal 5 x (112 + 0.67 x DB + 0.67 x WDPS) Spirit damage over 10 seconds, increasing your chance to critically hit by 10% for the same duration. If you are behind the target, you instantly deal (187 + 1.5 x DB + 1.5 x WDPS) Spirit damage.

Crashing Wave now instantly knocks down the target when pressed instead of having a weird delay.
We swapped the stances of knockback and knockdown as we believe this can lead to better CC rotations into your own burst damage. This change will be closely tracked to see if it has the effect we aim it to have.
For the middle tree, Redirected Force now has the AoE interrupt, allowing both SnB and 2H specs to gain access to this tool. The block of Crushing Advance is increased as compensation.
Perfect Defenses and Calming Winds have been reworked to rely less on your current stance.
The knockback of Mighty Gale when using Hoeth’s Tempest is increased as we felt like the knockback was too weak to warrant a tactic.
At last several changes in the Path of Khaine. Sapping Strike is reworked as the new 13 pt ability. With two great utility options as other 13 pt abilities, this ability is focused purely on buffing your own damage. Ether Dance is moved to 9 pts, which will make it easy to combine with Vaul’s Buffer or Whispering Wind. At last, Phoenix’s Wing takes the 5 pt spot in the tree and is changed to Stance 1 ability and has the 2H requirement removed.



Image
Balance Changes

- Hatred - The Black Guard now builds 10-5-3 Hate when being attacked (0-29 Hatred; 30-59 Hatred; 60-100 Hatred) instead of always 5 Hate. The Black Guard now always builds 5 Hate when attacking instead of the 10-5-3 Hate based on Hatred.

- Feeding On Pain - Reworked to: Reduce the AP cost of abilities based on your current Health level. With 76-100% Health: Reduce cost by 5 AP. With 51-75% Health: Reduce cost by 10 AP. With 26-50% Health: Reduce cost by 15 AP. With 0-25% Health: Reduce cost by 20 AP.

- Crush Vitality - Reworked to: Crush the Weak now additionally lowers the target’s auto attack speed by 35%. Now available at lvl 39.

- Simmering Anger - Now available at lvl 21.

A small change to buff some previously useless tactics of the Black Guard. Feeding On Pain is now a proper AP tactic and Crush Vitality a potential counter against physical small scale groups.



Realm versus Realm

Open-RvR

We have reintroduced armor being obtainable via RvR bags. The full set can be acquired from the bags, but a gold bag will only include 1 piece.

Players Renown ranks 1 to 23 will receive Obliterator Set pieces
Players Renown ranks 24 to 32 will receive Devastator Set pieces

We have also reintroduced Invader Set being obtainable via Fortress bags. The full set can be acquired from the bag (minus the jewel), but a gold bag will only include 1 piece.

Players Renown ranks 40 to 255 will receive Invader pieces in Fortress bags.


Ranked Season 7

Ranked Season 7 of 6v6 Scenarios has already started on the 29th April, and it is time to battle yourself up to the top of the leaderboards both in Solo Mode or Group play, to earn more rewards and have a chance at participating at the Season Finalists Tournament.

Read more about Season 7 below:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=53020&p=554228#p554228


Ranked Scenarios

The end of season rewards for season 5 and season 6 are added to the vendors. Better late than never.


Scenarios

Destruction's Guards in the center lane of Login's Forge are now properly mirrored to Order's: Ranged Guards up front, with melee guards in the back.



Dungeons
Image
Hunter's Vale

The Hunter's Vale Dungeon has re-launched with some new quality-of-life improvements and some additional restorations that bring the dungeon more in line with the original version of the Mythic servers. Key updates include:

- Sprite bodies in the Kurnous encounter now disappear instantly once defeated. Previously, these could often pile up if unscavenged, which would prevent players from seeing the Dog/Wolf/Lion mechanic later in the fight.

- Spears cast by Kurnous no longer duplicate per target, meaning fewer spears to worry about. However, be cautious, as the damage of these has been increased significantly!

- The Aspect of the Dog/Wolf/Lion mechanic has been fully restored and now works like it did on the original servers. The new mechanic follows the same rock-paper-scissors style of picking an animal to counter whichever Kurnous selects, but now players are granted reactive abilities to use which counter the power that Kurnous will soon unleash in his new animal form. To gain these, interact with one of the animals which appear as this phase begins.

The Hunter's Vale Dungeon now also grants new Basic and Advanced Influence Rewards. (With Elite to follow in the future!)

Additionally, Hunter's Vale now also grants influence towards the Dungeon Weekly, with the final three main bosses granting a total of 8,000 influence, or just under the first reward pip.

The Hunter's Vale Wiki Page has also been given a much-needed facelift, and now has all the correct information and guides on the bosses for newer players and curious parties!


Gunbad

- The damage on Masta Mixa's fists have been reduced slightly once more. This should be about the sweet spot for them now.

- Masta Mixa's knockback mechanic has been temporarily disabled until we're able to properly restore his "Kablooey!" say chat, which is intended to warn players to interrupt him. This knockback is planned to return someday in the future once this functionality is restored.

Tome of Knowledge

The Achievements for Quests have been implemented and work retroactively counting quests you had already completed (excluding repeatable quests that were previously done as there is no counter for how many times these have been done). Players can now achieve these achievements and earn the associated rewards.


Companion Pets

Two new Companion Pets have been added for players to acquire with their Companion Coins! These are:

Order: Basset Hound Companion
Destro: Ravenspawn Companion

These two pets are tied to the Altdorf Sewers and Sacellum Dungeon, and their quest lines are unique in that players can repeat these quests once per week to acquire all 4 color variations of this pet by speaking to the starting NPC after they finish the quest. (You only need to spend your companion coins once to acquire all 4 variants.)

The quests for these new companions (and samples of how they look) can be found at the vendors in Altdorf's Southeast quarter or The Inevitable City's Slaanesh quarters.

Items

The name for the Level 35 Intelligence potion has had its name changed to "Potion of Elegance" in order to reduce confusion with the Level 10 Intelligence potion "Potion of Subtlety" which shared the same name.

The Skull of Ograrand from the Inevitable City is now properly implemented. Giving you different responses each time you interact with the item.

Guild Vendor

[22604] - Players will now be able to purchase 4 Purple 200 Apothecary vials for 1 guild coin instead of being a 1:1 trade.

Armor Pieces back to gold bags is huge...IF RNGesus smiles upon you and doesn't treat you to multiple duplicates. Depending on character Progression, it might also be a detriment.

My WE is cr30rr46 atm for example, which means that i will already get conqueror gear from bags, without the means (or intentention, for that matter) to use it. But for new players, that aren't burdened by the rr gain min / max mindset, this is a Blessing indeed.

HV + Set being open again also is stellar for new players / characters that freshly hit the corresponding CR.

We will have to see how the balance changes turn out, but at the very least this patch gave me an incentive to maybe dust off my WE :)

Why can't we just get the first reward with one HV run ? What is the point ? Because it is too fast ?

Also, when can we have a Stalwart Soulstone quest for each Dungeon and make Stalwart Soulstone account bounded, so players will fill groups for every dungeon easilly ?

At the moment to get a Soulstone, with PvE only, you need 3 GB runs or 3 HV + 1 Boss (GB/HV) a week or go for a Bastion Stair (and that's pretty boring to do).

No speed run quest for HV ?

you've done a lot of work and we can only congratulate you on all the efforts you've made. whether we like the changes you've proposed or not.

For the IB :
The modifications seem to be going in the right direction. After a few tests I'll have a more precise opinion on the impact.
I wonder about the words YOU wrote 3 months ago. "
"- Grumble An' Mutter - This ability is temporarily removed. Expected to return at a later date." did you lie at the time to try to avoid more disappointment?

In general, I feel that players are getting bored and losing interest in the changes you're making to the game. Do you have any statistics on population gain/loss?

Merci pour vos efforts !
