DOFUS The 21st Spell Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The 21st Spell, Version 1.27 of Ankama's online game DOFUS, is now available. The update features a variety of new content for the Flash based fantasy MMO, including new special class spells, new alignment quests, new challenges, and a focus on player vs. player combat.
Here's a list of some of the new features:
THE INTEGRATION OF SPECIAL CLASS SPELLSMore details about this update can be found at the page listed below.
Each class (Cra, Feca, etc.) will have its own special spell. This 21st spell can be obtained with a Doploon token. Players can get that token by defeating a Dopple in their class temple. A Dopple is a powerful creature with the spells of one of the playable character classes at their disposal. Doploons can be exchanged for experience and items, and that’s why they’re so sought-after by players.
SPOTLIGHTON PVP QUESTS
PvP quests appeared with DOFUS version 1.26 and are aggression contracts against other characters. The experience gained with these quests has been increased by 50% in order to make PvP a real alternative to PvM for making characters evolve.
Among other new things, there are the Strokens. Each time players win a PvP fight, they get 2 Strokens, as well as experience and Kamas (in-game currency). These are tokens and are connected to one character. Payers can accumulate them before exchanging them for specific rewards to the NPC which gives the PvP quests in their city (Bonta or Brakmar). These rewards include Characteristic Scrolls – which are used to improve the characteristics of a character (Strength, Agility, Chance etc.) – or Spiritual Gems (soul stones which enable players to challenge a powerful dungeon monster in an arena).
If a player is designated as the target of another player and wins a fair fight, that player will then get half the reward (1 Stroken and half of the experience).
THE INTRODUCTION OF UNHEALABLE DAMAGE
In order to avoid endless PvP or PvM fights, healing power has been reduced. With each blow taken, only part of the Health Points lost will be restored. Therefore, the maximum number of Health Points of a character inexorably diminishes during each fight– regardless of the number of heals received. This new system emphasizes the tactical aspect of the game.
NEW QUESTS AND ALIGNMENT REWARDS
War between Bonta and Brakmar continues! 10 new alignment quests (level 40 – 50) are now available! An additional Order quest has been added for each order. Both cities have three orders and joining one of them enables players to specialize as warriors, priests or spies. When specialized, players can access the second rank of their Order and receive alignment rewards (Attack, Resurrection, Liberation, itemouflage or immobile camouflage potions). These rewards are linked to PvP fights but cannot be used in combat.
Challenges are missions given to players for each fight. If they complete their mission, they will receive experience bonuses and items at the end of the fight. 37 challenges (including 3 hidden ones) have been added to the game.
