Development Blog 9 (Argus Group Boss, Changes & More)

Recommended Posts


Hello Exorians,


It's time for another update log! We've added a new group boss, brought in gameplay changes and general additions/bug fixes.
We're still looking for a few more serious beta testers. And we're getting quite closer to release. Stay tuned on our official discord.

+ Argus

Argus is the new group boss introduced in Exora. He can only be damaged with Melee and Magic. He has 4 phases where you will have to damage his shield with magic. Argus's melee attacks can only hit players in front of him, so a tank would be needed to keep aggro.
Argus can randomly hit a massive aoe attack dealing a bleeding effect to players, if they are under a bleeding storm.

Note: The following media shown is still in the works, and will likely have some changes such as rewards.

Here's how it looks:




+ Events

We've added a new area for hosting our events. You can teleport here via the global teleports. Cities > Events.



+ Skill Zone Changes

Added a new path to the house teleport. Removed the farming patches. You will now have to talk to the farming master to teleport to farming patches around Exora.
Servants are now behind the house teleport.



+ Vote Book Changes

We feel as though the vote book gave way too many overpowered buffs. Vote book will now give you 1 vote point upon claiming it.
The extra benefits are now spread out through other books, obtained via voting, events or loot boxes.

- Book of exora (increased hit rate by 10%, drop rate and double xp for 10 mins)
- Book of wisdom, doubles experience gained for 10 minutes.
- Book of wealth, increases drop rate for 10 minutes.
- Book of strength, increased hit rate by 10% for 10 minutes.



+ Coal Bag

You can now store your coal in the coal bag. The limit is 100 coal. Obtained via an achievement reward. (Easy Task)
The coal bag can not be lost in the wilderness, nor can you drop it.
Coal bag allows you to also smelt ores without taking the coal to your inventory.


+ Achievements

- A new construction achievement: Build a kitchen room in your house.
- A new construction achievement: Build a throne room in your house.
- A new achievement "Smelt 50 iron bars". Reward: coal bag.


+ Abyssal Armour

Abyssal armour will now reflect 10% of incoming damage, if the full set is equipped. It is obtained from abyssal horrors.


+ Dark Matter Demons

- Dark matter demons now have 15k hitpoints as they are high end monsters.
- Lowered dark matter demons attack speed.


+ Hecarim

- Added hecarim's greataxe, slightly faster than a regular greataxe, hits twice and has a 5% chance of hitting an extra hit. Rare drop from hecarim.
- Added hecarim's bow, same speed as rest of high tier bows. Uses arrows up to dragon. Hits twice however the 2nd hit is slightly less damage. Rare drop from hecarim.


+ Gothmog (Firelands)

Gothmog will now update the kill count for all participants up to 5 players.
Gothmog now has increased hitpoints, a total of 50k. 
Gothmog attack delay, defensive bonuses have been nerfed.
Gothmog prayer flicks have been removed.


+ Changes
