Dragon God Update - Patch: 2.1.1412 content 2.1.1412

So far you’ve managed to survive all challenges Auratia has managed to throw at you. However, for this major content patch, we’re doing things differently! With the upcoming patches we’ll focus on the social side of the game; the way new players will be introduced to the game, a new mastery system and much more!

As you may have noticed already, we’ll be explaining why we change, balance and improve the things we do and hopefully give you a better insight of our thought process.

Now with that being said, let’s start off with one of the things we’ll be covering in this update. It’s been a topic on the forums for quite a while, but the mastery update is finally here. We’ll give you a small tl;dr here, with a more detailed description in the patch notes below.

In the new Mastery System in Dragon‘s Prophet, your characters can learn new masteries and skills. All four character classes now have unique masteries, which can help you gradually specialize into a role. From passive buffs to active attacks, the further you progress in the game, the more masteries you’ll unlock.

That’s it for now! Read below for a full list of changes, and we’ll see you next patch! Welcome to patch 2.1.1412.

New content

Tutorial improvement

To accommodate new players, we gave the starter region a unique revamp. We felt like the design of our starter region was slightly lacking and did not cover the basics as well as we originally intended. To go along with this, we added and altered parts of the game hints. We hope that with these changes it will be easier for new players to get to know the game and eventually integrate better at later stages of the game.

Mastery Improvements

With the mastery changes we’ll be overhauling all class’ skill and talent constructions into three tiers. “Basic Masteries”, “Weapon Masteries” and “Dragon God Masteries”.

  • Basic Masteries will lay the foundations for all the mastery systems and will offer each class active and passive skills.
  • Upon completion of the level 10 Mastery training quest, each player will unlock the “Weapon Masteries” tier. This tier allows for further specialization of your Basic Masteries.
  • After completing the level 60 Mastery training quest, you will be able to activate the new “Dragon God Masteries”. These skills are advanced active and passive bonuses based on the Dragon God you select, allowing up to 4 different combinations.

Mastery Quests

Upon reaching level 10 and 60, you will receive a message that will inform you to go and start your Mastery quest. As already mentioned, when you complete one of these quests, you will unlock a new tier of masteries. Older characters that already passed these levels, will have these quests automatically completed.

Mastery Reset Powder

With the revamp of our mastery system, the Mastery Reset Powder has become redundant. We didn’t want to just make these items useless. Instead, you will now be able to exchange Mastery Reset Powder for other items simply by using it. From now on, you will be able to reset your masteries with gold.

Please Note: With the introduction of this new system, we’ll make any mastery reset free of charge until we feel that the new masteries are in a right place.

Treasure Hunt System

Want to go out hunting some treasures with your friends but fear you may never find them? No problem! Artecia will now have Ancient Book stores where you will be able to find clues. These clues will lead you to a place in the world where you will be able to find an “Encrypted Treasure Chest”. Of course this chest is hidden; it’s a hunt after all! You will be able to open these chests by crafting a key or by completing a special mini game!

Spirit Shield

To compensate for some of the abilities the new masteries bring to the game, certain mobs and bosses will have an extra ability called “Spirit Shield”. This means they won’t be affected by crowd control and have a 30% chance to not be affected by critical hits until the shield is broken.

Quest Rewards

We’d like to make sure that questing is a fun experience, not just something that you will have to put up with until you eventually hit your level cap. To assist you in your travels, main story quests will now have purple quality gear for you upon completion. This should actually make you feel like you just completed a part of your character’s story and of course, it will help you to slay your foes even swifter!

UI Improvements

One of our goals for this patch is to let new players learn our game faster and transition easier. We’re adding some extra mini-map features, a quick-swap button that allows you to quickly change your equipment, an unstuck button in the Character Selection Interface and a new player frame effect that will only display when you’re in combat.
