Revelation Online's scour dungeons are a leveler's best friend

Even if MMO titles look similar to past releases, we've found that there are always interesting systems and unique quirks to each game that require some effort to familiarize. One of these for Revelation Online is the game's "scour dungeons," which are special instances devoted to the fine art of grinding mobs.

This isn't as bad as it sounds, actually. Every day, players can jump into a scour dungeon to quickly take on a host of mobs and benefit from the experience and loot. In fact, the devs say that these dungeons are one of the best ways to level up and tier up your equipment: "Operating much like a daily quest , you will only be able to kill a certain number of monsters per day in this manner, though the maximum number can be increased over time."

There's even an option to morph into an enemy and go about attacking players for fun, if that's your bag. You can sample one of these scour dungeons in the video below.

One Shots: The Candy Man

If you have a sweet tooth or diabetes, you may want to avoid the temptation that we're about to put in your path with today's headlining picture from the MOP community. It's... the Candy Man, as delicious as he is deadly.

"On the topic of sweets, this screenshot from Heroes of the Storm is one of my favorite things ever," writes Little Bugbear. "Sometime it's difficult in MOBAs to find a character and skin that fit you perfectly. For me Kandy King Muradian's pink beard and overwhelming decadence makes it the pinnacle of MOBA skins."

Amen to that. I just want a small nibble, is that so bad?

Revelation Online players accuse the game of pay-to-win tactics

Don't look now, but the ugly form of pay-to-win might be slouching its way into Revelation Online.

On the forums, players have accused My.com of incorporating P2W tactics into the game, saying that the cash shop gives an unfair PvP advantage over those who only accumulate gear and progress through the game. Allegedly, the cash shop sells treasure maps that guides players to T6 PvP stones, while the best that others can attain through normal gameplay alone is only T4 stones.

When another player pointed out that the maps can be gained through the Ninefold Assault, the response was that people could buy top notch stones from the store in bulk and that it still constituted an unfair advantage in a competitive environment.

"We had the top players working on Tier 4 Gems and perfecting their soul grid, and now out of nowhere, everyone gets Tier 4+ gems and Tier 4+ Crystals, thus completely nullifying all effort put in the game so far," one player wrote.

Global Chat: Fare thee well, Landmark

Believe it or not, there were actually people who played and enjoyed Landmark -- and were saddened to see it taken offline. To kick off this week's roundup of interesting MMO blog posts, we turn to those who knew and remembered Landmark with their words.

"The game, once just a bullet point on the EverQuest Next announcement at SOE Live, has been shut down," The Ancient Gaming Noob said. "The web site and forums have been hidden away and the domain resolves to the Daybreak main page. The few remaining fans have had their final look at the lands of… erm… <does Google search>… Lumeria! That was the name of the place."

Superior Realities took a tour on its last day: "That, really, is what was special about Landmark. You could go to any map, walk in any direction, and in no time flat you’d be sure to find something beautiful, fascinating, or awe-inspiring. The traditional wisdom is that if you give players the tools to make their own content, the vast majority of it will be utter crap, but Landmark was stunning refutation of that notion."

Continue our roundup as bloggers dissect problems with The Secret World's combat system, share tips on how to grind LOTRO points, mull over why it's hard to go back to the "olden days," deliver an early access review of Revelation Online, and pontificate on why theme park MMOs simply work.

Warface's first patch since the My.com publishing deal is out today

Back in January, Crytek announced that its F2P online shooter Warface would be globally published by My.com in the west beginning in February -- yep, that's the same My.com that runs Revelation Online and Skyforge. The idea was that Crytek would be able to "focus on the development aspect" and work on content while My.com would take over player accounts and game distribution.

How did it go? Apparently to plan: Warface's first big content patch since the transition rolled out today. Called Icebreaker, the update includes a new storyline, new baddies, new weapons, new achievements, "improved loading times," and of course, the co-op "Icebreaker" mission itself.

The launch trailer is tucked down below.

Here's how intimacy and marriage work in Revelation Online

Did you know that you can get married in Revelation Online? You can! It's part and parcel of the game's intimacy system, which is not as weird as it sounds, I promise.

Basically, it's system intended to get players to duo with their close friends -- a noble goal, right? Participating in specific types of content will grant you and your friend "intimacy points" -- that's everything from chatting and dueling to dungeoning and PvPing. There's also a mentoring tool: "If one of you is a mentor to the other, you can use this skill on your friend/partner to gain 2 [intimacy] points per skill usage."

Need to wear your heart on your sleeve? You can kinda do that too in a UI akin to The Sims': As your intimacy points with your selected buddy increase, so do the number of hearts displayed next to him or her in the friends panel.

So what's the point of all that sappy intimacy? Mawwage.

Revelation Online kicks off a guild propaganda poster contest

Remember last winter when Skyforge ran a propaganda poster contest? My.com has now ported the idea over to the newly-soft-launched-into-open-beta Revelation Online, asking players to craft their very own guild propaganda for the game.

"We ask you, the community, to create your own special version of a Propaganda image to promote your current guild, whether it be a slogan, logo, guild-group photo, or anything you can think of, so long as it’s an image," says the studio.

The so-named Revelation Online Guild Propaganda contest begins today and runs through March 24th. The submitters of the top 10 entries will collect prizes ranging from high-end apparel sets to channel-wide shouting devices.

Betawatch: The soft launch of Revelation Online (March 10, 2017)

Revelation Online departs the hallowed halls of Betawatch this week, having emerged from closed beta into open beta. No more wipes are planned, and the game is now freely accessible, making the My.com import well and truly soft-launched. Fly free, my pretty! What else happened in the world of MMO betas this week?

  • Elder Scrolls Legends dumped the beta tag entirely and is now officially launched on PC.
  • Shards Online is getting a name change ahead of its planned Steam early access launch. You may now refer to it as Legends of Aria.
  • The Repopulation's alpha is expected to resume this weekend under the new ownership. Welcome back, Repop! Don't screw this up!
  • Gigantic just cannot catch a break: It laid off a sizable portion of its staff with the aim of "reducing the burn rate" until it can emerge from open beta and land on Arc later this year.
  • Project Gorgon tasked players with testing dungeon difficulty.
  • Camelot Unchained is still teasing its long-delayed beta one, but it sounds as if we're inching closer now.
  • Albion Online is pushing out a big patch next week, heavily overhauling the beta.
  • Crowfall is working toward 24-7 test servers.
  • LawBreakers is planning a big beta weekend later this month. Breakin' the law!

Revelation Online's guilds can give you a boost up

Let's just put this right out there: You definitely are going to want to join a guild in Revelation Online unless you genuinely enjoy having fewer stats than everyone else in the game.

This is thanks to Revelation's character cultivation system. Essentially, it allows guilds to build up a spot in their base so that all members can train up bonus skill points. Both guilds and individual players will need to pay into the system for those rewards using (among other things) fruit. Plumblossom Fruit to be exact.

And just in case you were wondering if you could join a guild, get the extra stats, and then take off with them... you can't: "The caveat being that it is guild-centric passive, thus leaving a guild will disable the ability until you re-join a guild that has character cultivate unlocked. Until that point, you will retain your cultivation progress, but not be able to enjoy its effects outside of a guild, or within a guild that does not have the passive unlocked for its members."

Revelation Online soft launched this week as a free-to-play title. Curious about it but too lazy to install? MOP's MJ will be streaming it at 8:00 p.m.!
