Dev Note #136: 10/26 Update Notice & Feedback Reflection

Dev Notes
HEIR OF LIGHT: Dev Notes - Dev Note #136: 10/26 Update Notice & Feedback Reflection image 1

Greetings Heirs,   It has been 10 days since the 5.0 Update. For today's Dev Note, We would like to share information about the 10/26 Update, feedback from the community, and shard farmable servants.   ⭐️Regarding the Skip System   Before discussing other upcoming contents, we would like to talk about the Skip Feature first.   Many Heirs have been sharing their feedback and suggestions regarding the skip feature and we have been reviewing each one. We have been internally discussing the skip feature while reviewing all community feedbacks ever since the release of the 5.0 Update. There were a lot of different types of suggestions about the skip feature > Revert the Skip Feature and bring back the Auto-Repeat > Allow Auto-Battle and Skip to coexist with each other > Allow Valor and Energy to be used together > At least allow auto-repeat available in the Gear Dungeons Only   We have looked at all the suggestions from multiple perspectives and we understand that each suggestion has its pros and cons.   We are on the ride of a rollercoaster after the skip feature update, however, there are a lot of positive effects that the skip feature brought to the game. The community became more active due to the play increase in the Party Raid, more users are attempting to reach a higher Abaddon Floors, and strategizing more about gears due to the increase in Gear Dungeon farming.     We understand those who loved the auto-repeat feature and it's not that we are not considering those users or haven't thought about possible future improvements. However, not a lot of time has passed since the release of the skip feature so we wish to review much longer. Also, there are new contents prepared to start from 5.1 updates, so please be patient with us.   ⭐️Feedback Reflection   " It's nice to obtain T3~T5 servants from summoning but cannot use them for T. EXP" " It's great that the Mysterious Dungeon rewards have increased but the difficulty is too high" " The GR for farmable servants should be buffed" " Wish that the Guild War matching would be fairer"   These are some suggestions that many users have suggested to us. We are not only reviewing feedback and suggestions regarding the skip feature but all contents within the game. There were many suggestions that we wanted to implement into the game, but we will be implementing a small amount at a time in future updates.   ⭐️10/26 Update Notice   1. The Farmable Servant Growth Score will be Buffed   Many have servants that have reached or are close to reaching high-end Transcendence servants. However, you may have experience in cases where you couldn't use them to their full potential in Corrupted Waterway and Sanctuary due to the Growth Score Cap.   We have decided to apply the same Growth Score for farmable servants.   2. Corrupted Waterway Reset Cost Reduced   When attempting the Corrupted Waterway, there are situations where your servants die in a very close battle. Also, there are situations where the Growth Score was not enough to allow you to attempt the stage you wanted to clear. Our original thoughts behind the reset were to allow users to attempt at the stage again after being defeated or after being stuck due to low Growth Score. However, the cost of reset was too high which showed very low usage of reset in Corrupted Waterway. Thus, we want to improve on the Corrupted Waterway system by reducing the Reset karat cost to 1/5 of the original karat cost.   3. Guild War Matching   We believe that it would be a good approach to reduce the range of Guilds that get matched with each other to bring fair matching in the Guild War. Thus, after the 10/26 update, the Guild War matching will be selected from the top and bottom 5 guilds.   Many have suggested and shared ideas about Guild War matching methods. Some suggested matching guilds based on the total Growth Scores, or even receiving more win points based on the number of Guild Badges. However, if it's only good for 1 guild then, it may cause unfairness to other guilds so it was difficult to implement ideas that many have suggested.   4. Servant Balance - Spiegel Buff   The Water and Dark Spiegel will be undergoing a servant balance in the 10/26 update.   ⭕Water Spiegel   The Water Spiegel passive, Increase SPD upon skill hitting Crit, was rather inefficient. Thus, the passive will change as listed below and will increase to 36% upon reaching Lv.20 on Special Potential Skill #2.   > Passive Skill - Increase SPD for 30 sec upon active skill use.   ⭕Dark Spiegel   Just like Water Spiegel, Dark Spiegel had a rather ineffective Passive. We will be fixing his Passive as below.   - Passive Skill: 100% chance to stun an enemy (except dungeon bosses) for 4 sec upon active skill use. Increase caster's SPD by 30% upon skill use. Removes 1 buff from the enemy when Combo Skill lands as a Crit Hit.     ⭐️5.1 Update Preview     1. Servants that are at 1st Transcendence or above can be used as a Transcend Material right away.   Now that Heirs can summon 3rd & 5th Transcendence servants from Summon, some Heirs commented that the weekly Dismantle limit often gets in the way of utilizing the 3rd & 5th Transcendence servants. There were different possible solutions that were suggested, such as easing the weekly Dismantle limit or distinguishing the Dismantle limit between Light/Dark and Fire/Water/Forest servants. However, we thought that the best solution would be allowing Heirs to use 3rd & 5th servants immediately as Transcend materials. Starting 5.1 Update, 3rd & 5th Transcendence servants can be used for Transcend EXP. Please wait for 5.1 Update if you have an applicable servant.   2. Mystery Dungeon will become slightly easier   Starting 5.1 Update, ATK/DEF/HP of Mystery Dungeon bosses will become 1.5 ~ 2 times lower. This will allow more Heirs to challenge Mystery Dungeon, and Heirs with a stronger team will be able to clear Mystery Dungeon with repeat battle.   ⭐️Farmable Servant Adjustment   As we mentioned above, the Growth Score of farmable servants will match the Growth Score of non-farmable servants. This is the beginning of farmable servant change. Since this is such an important issue, we wanted to make a separate notice.   Adjustment to farmable servant's Growth Score & Transcend EXP has been brought up since we brought the Transcend update. Seeing Heirs investing in their favorite farmable servants and forming a team with those farmable servants, we questioned ourselves if it is appropriate to distinguish farmable servants from non farmable servants.   In 5.1 Update scheduled for November 11th, Transcend EXP of farmable servants will match Transcend EXP of non-farmable servants. For example, if a farmable servant previously needed 21,000 Transcend EXP from 9T to 10T, it will only need 15,000 Transcend EXP after the Update.   For those that already own servants with 10th Transcendence or 9th Transcendence with Transcend EXP close to 10th Transcendence, we will be compensating appropriate amount of Fire/Water/Forest & Light/Dark T.Shard according to the exceeding Transcendence EXP based on the element of the servants Heirs own.   The change in Transcendence EXP above will allow Heirs to transcend 30 ~ 34% faster than before. While it is necessary for us to slightly nerf the drop rate of farmable servants in Explore/Sanctuary stages, we wanted to avoid making any excessive nerf to allow Heirs to Transcend farmable servants faster than non-farmable servants. We decided to adjust the amount of shard obtained from Repeat Reward in Sanctuary region while leaving the actual shard drop rate the same, reducing Heirs' transcending speed by 19 ~ 20%. Ultimately, you will be able to transcend 10 ~ 20% faster than before.   Please note that there won't be any change to repeat rewards from Explore/Sanctuary regions until the Update.   ⭐️Tower of God Collaboration Termination   Tower of God collaboration is nearing its end. You won't be able to obtain Bam, Yuri, and White after the update on November 10th. Heirs will only be able to obtain Collaboration Transcend Bun through Craft. It seems like a lot of Heirs enjoyed the collaboration. We thank you for your interest.   Please make sure to summon before 5.1 Update on November 10th if you need the Tower of God Collaboration servant. Please feel free to leave any suggestion for future collaboration.   Thank you.   Flynn

    Trash game by trash devs. Hope this dies soon or people realize your robbing them blind.

    I am really looking forward to some of these updates (e.g. adjustments to farmable servants transcend). These adjustments will boost the gains that have come from the energy system. Aka more servant shards so faster growth score gains. But I don't think these will do anything about how uneven the game feels since skip was added. It's like I'm playing two different games. One where the action goes super fast and I don't get to enjoy any of the experience (e.g. Shard & great farming). The second game is really slow with no clear guide points of how to improve (e.g. global PvP & world boss battle)

    really hope bond ticket comeback soon!

  • gamer319757398 LV.14 Chief Oct 24, 2020, 11:28 AM

    finally something positive.
    else for the last 6 odd months you guys have done nothing but ruin the game.

    in future, release news affecting dupes etc well in advance.
    laying the news on us last minute hits us hard.

  • SaberWing LV.6 Nomad Oct 25, 2020, 02:04 AM

    This update was very good, well done!!!

  • gubén LV.2 Lurker Oct 25, 2020, 10:58 AM

    I have been playing this game since early days and imo it has improved a lot and is a much better game than it was in the beginning.
    The devs do not always get it right straight away but seem to listen to the community and be willing to change things to the better.
    I am looking very much forward to this update.

  • CrazyPheonix LV.12 Champion Oct 26, 2020, 10:15 AM

    would be nice if I could get the game to work properly instead of restarting sent message to support only to have them respond by saying I have old phone or that my network connection is bad truth is didn't have a problem before these last few updates game is broken for me !!!!

  • ঐariewayq LV.20 AWPer Oct 29, 2020, 12:43 AM

  • ঐariewayq LV.20 AWPer Oct 29, 2020, 12:44 AM

  • Potato Gaming LV.2 Lurker Nov 5, 2020, 08:44 AM

    skip is nice but would you let us farm when we wait for energy?. What if we don't like to go and do Arena and the other things that do not require energy but valor.

    we would also like to farm on dungeons straight.

    it is killing my mood to play when I don't energy anymore. 😑😑
