    Update officially announce to be implemented at end of month under new name.

  • shhwolf17shhwolf17 Salt Lake City, UTPosts: 146Member

    Sure hope it will not affect how fun this game has been...but I can't be sure of that...

    so we only have until the end of this month to enjoy the classic Requiem: Bloodymare then its off to the huge change right?

  • CleffyCleffy San Diego, CAPosts: 5,129Member Uncommon

    Yup.  Considering the games population.  A complete change in gameplay could prove to be a positive.  Also not updating a perpetual world is always a bad idea.

  • TyrantasTyrantas KaunasPosts: 367Member Uncommon

    Those changes sounds good, we'll see how good it will be tommorow.

  • ruud666ruud666 jogjaPosts: 22Member

    24 09 2009 8am the luncher start to updating.

     

    New Skill and DNA System

    Learning Skills:

    In Season 2, Skills are now learned through a new UI rather than through a NPC in town, this allows players to instantly gain skills and makes it easier to view skill trees in an organized view. The skills available to learn are shown with a + on the skill. The skill tree is divided into tiers depending on the level required to get the first level of skill as shown below.

    • Once a skill is leveled by clicking the + button, you cannot unlearn the skill.

    • The next level skill is available every 3 levels rather than 5 allowing for higher level skills to be learned.

    • There is no cost to learn new skills.

    • Some skills have prerequisites which require you to learn a skill higher up on the tree before you can learn the next skill.

     

    Armor/Weapon Skills:

    New skills are now available through equipment. New items that drop from mobs can be enchanted onto a piece of armor or weapon that make these new skills available for use along with normal skills.

    DNA System:

    DNA is also now learned through a new UI rather than an NPC; also, there is no cost to change your DNA from the new UI. Once the DNA is learned, it is automatically applied to the corresponding skills.

    • DNA no longer costs anything making is affordable to anyone.

    • DNA can be learned freely at anytime without an NPC from the new UI.

    • Players are no longer limited to 5 DNA, 25 DNA points are available to the user to distribute to any DNA that they wish.

    • Available DNA is shown with a + just as the skills are.

    • You remove 1 level of DNA only during the initial selection. Once you click

    [ OK ] to accept the changes, you cannot remove the DNA unless through a Skill Reset to remove them all.

    • DNA is available for both 1st class and 2nd class jobs on select skills.

     

    New Pet System

    Season 2 features a new Pet System that is available for every player. The Pets can be purchased through the Item Mall or through the new Battlefield merchant in every major city. These pets last for 30 days and will not be able to be summoned once the item has expired.

    The new pets can perform several tasks that are beneficial to the players:

    • At level 1, all pets give the player a 10% Experience boost. At level 2, 10% more lant drops, and at level 3, you get 10% more drops.

    • Also, at level 1, all pets have the option to automatically pick up drops for a player, all items are immediately placed in your character?s bag. (Be sure to turn this function off during raids)

    Pets gain Experience over time, rather than with the amount of Experience a player gets, so any player at any level can level a pet just as fast as the other.

    All you need to do is have the pet summoned for the pet to gain Experience.

     

    then there is battleground updates and much more, yippeeeeeeeeeeee...!!!!!!!!!

    Hey guys and ladies!

    Ok so I just installed Requiem last night.

    I make me a toon, make it a passcode get logged in and WOW!

     

    I am sitting there thinking how in the hell did I ever miss this game on the radar. It doesn't break the mold when it comes to MMO's BUT what I think got me was the adult theme of the game.

    The combat and brutal nature of it all and the dark feel of the game has me hooked. Call me twisted if you want, but in wow when I kill a boar and it just falls over on its side and disappears = BORING!

    When I killed a ram/reindeer in Requiem and the damn thing explodes into guts and crap all over the ground, I was like awesome!

    So I played a Xenoa or whatever to level 8 before stopping at 3am this morning, was basically just testing out the gameplay and skills to get used to it.

    Honestly though I can't wait to get home tonight and see how far I can push it. Also the changes seem to be a positive, I know I have only been playing like 5 hours, but from the list of things it would appear the new patch would improve a lot of things, taking it away from the more asian grinder type UI and feel into a more broad player base. We will see, after last night, I was actually just considering paying the 12.99 a month for premium user, however I decided to play as a default user until I get to like 20 just to see if things continue to play smooth like they do and stay cool like they are.

    Hope to see you all in game!

     

    Later

  • TyrantasTyrantas KaunasPosts: 367Member Uncommon

    Yeah this game has unique feel. Many things are even better than in most p2p, but it has some cons like UI or lack of character customization. That patch should also get more people into the game and make game even better, lets hope they won't make any hughe negative thing in that update which would fuck up the game.

  • skydragonrenskydragonren Hagerstown, MDPosts: 667Member

    What server do you guys suggest, and do any of you have a guild I could come to maybe?

  • TyrantasTyrantas KaunasPosts: 367Member Uncommon

    Well i am only lvl 20 started it few days ago, but people says that Hammerine is the best cos of population and stuff, and if u like pvp u must pick Hammerine cos it's the only PK/PvP server. Tho if u hate pvp go to Valdes, it also has not bad population.

  • skydragonrenskydragonren Hagerstown, MDPosts: 667Member

    Well I went to Valdes at first, only because I didn't know what Hammerine or whatever would be like, I envisioned trying to kill a reindeer and having 15 max levels taking turns raping me in the snow until I got pissed and logged.

    Course if you can level on that server without being ganked every 2.5 seconds until you can fend for yourself I will reroll.

    Which do you play on? and what is your in game name?

  • TyrantasTyrantas KaunasPosts: 367Member Uncommon

    Hammerine server, Sakkreth is the name i play as rogue, but i am casual player.

    huhuhu i likes this guys opinion on "this is the best game i've ever played"

    i loved when someOne says the same ways i think about...well what i mean is i loved this game be coz i love its gore theme, i like gore thin' so i love REQUIEM watever it is.

    as someone that had a lot experienced bout a lot of games, can you share me some of yours? is this game is not about  grinding? bcoz all i felt in game and read from some forum that this game is hardcore grinding way around, after reach lvl 50 up some ppl thin' that the grinding is hard as hell without premium service.

     

    ppl dont talk a lot bout this game becoz this game is not so popular, not many ppl knows bout this game. some ppl dont likes its theme that really dark,,,,,,,,well idc bout that ppl says, since this game had an original theme. i love it and i play it.

     

    lets spread this game for popularity and raise its population............!! woohooooooooooo..
