Chaos Unleashed

Chaos is affecting the whole world of Blacktalon, birthing chaos corrupted creatures and raid bosses. Be aware that they are stronger versions of the normal mobs (can stack with elites) and can carry challenging modifiers. Corrupted monsters will reward you with increased experience and loot.


   


Modifiers


Creatures (monsters and players) can carry chaos modifiers which have various effects, some examples of them are:



The modifiers have different values for players, you can check them using your compass

Chaos Compass




Every day, two respawns of every continent (some continents are divided by 2 parts) will be corrupted by the chaos. Making so every time a monster respawn it will have a chance to become corrupted. Every time you kill a corrupted monster from that, you will receive 1 chaos essence. Depending on the continent, you will have a limit of how much you can collect.
For example: In mainland lower you can only collect up to 200 essences daily, but in mainland high you can collect up to 400. Reaching the limit in a lower level area does not block you to obtain essences from a higher area

You can check your current limit and the monsters corrupted with your Chaos Compass



Dungeons


Corrupted dungeons will spawn chaos monsters of the level you selected on your compass. It will give increased experience and by killing the boss you will gain some chaos essence.
There is a daily limit of 6 dungeons that rewards chaos essence. You can still do more than 6 corrupted dungeons daily for increased challenge and experience


Hunting Grounds


As dungeons, it will also spawn chaos monsters of the level you selected on your compass, increasing their experience but also orb chance (and boss drop). You gain Chaos Essence by defeating the boss.

The daily limit for reward is 3 hunting grounds


Tower Arena


Same as other systems, it will spawn chaos monsters of the selected level in your compass, but it will not increase experience and monsters loot, since they don’t give it. Instead it will increase floor loot drop. You gain Chaos Essence after exiting the tower depending on the amount of floors you have completed.

The daily limit for reward is 2 towers (it will count only up to 2 tickets)



Soul Scrolls


You can spend a good amount of chaos essence to corrupt a soul scroll of your preference. It will make them give double the amount of bonus and a random modifier for your character. You can only equip up to 3 corrupted soul scrolls at once



Consume/Extract



Continent Boss


Continent Bosses are a long dated system in BlackTalon, but due to some issues with it, we decided to do a little rework to make them more accessible to most players. Before, Continent Bosses were only summonable by sacrificing crystal fragments that corresponded to that continent’s boss. Now, all Continent Bosses will automatically spawn in fixed spawn times instead, without the need for players to actively summon it. The previous crystal fragments that were used to summon these, will now grant a personal bonus loot for that boss, keeping in mind that the crystal type will still need to be matched for its corresponding boss. 



Special Furniture


Our furniture system was very lackluster and was in clear need for a rework. Before, each furniture had a few options to choose from, some of them were useless, and needed to be recharged with a toolbox every now and then. Now, furniture is divided into two types: Normal and Premium. 



How they work now:

  • They will give only one bonus (the owner will choose which one)

  • The owner can use it anytime they want (respecting the cooldowns)

  • Others players can use, but the furniture will consume charge by that, which can be recharged with toolboxes

  • Existing toolboxes will no longer work anymore and a new one will be added to BD shop and rare boss drop, exclusively


Normal furniture will have a fixed cooldown of 22 hours regardless of the buff type, and extra copies of the same furniture will not be usable in case you used one before.



Premium furniture has a varied cooldown per buff type and is not limited by the extra copy rule, meaning that you can gather more than one of the same furniture if you wish and still obtain the buff it provides. The buff list was greatly increased and toolboxes are no longer necessary.



Equipment Bag


Equipment bags are now no longer stackable and now have rarities attached to them, which will be dependant on which rarity elite creature it was obtained from. Starting from strange rarity, it will only show 1 item available to grab, up to 5 items at mythic rarity. You can also upgrade the bag's rarity, but it will have an additional Blue Diamond cost to its normal fee.



Currency Storage


We now have a bank interface to deposit common currencies. It can be accessed from anywhere from the Others menu and supports a variety of currencies to be stored, such as gold, blacktalon coins, rarity tokens

and event tokens. 



Supply Stash


Our supply stash also got some love in this update. It is now more responsive and quick, with filters to ease navigation in it. You can now also blacklist a few items from being stowed, if you wish to do so. And lastly, the amount of stacks for each item has been increased. Also, the scroll effect is now permanent, therefore it was removed from the blacktalon coin shop and added to the blue diamond shop



Death Recap


This is a new feature that allows you to see more detailed information about your death. Things like date and hour, which and how many monsters or players you died to and experience loss are available to be seen. You can also see other player's informations if you wish so.

Tutorials


We now have a tutorial module to help new players to find their way throughout our game. It’s optional and it has specific trigger events, like specific levels, when you kill your first monster, when a raid happens, etc. It is also worth mentioning that, while not mandatory to do, it is extremely recommended to do so even if you are a veteran player, since it will yield out a nice reward upon completing it fully!
