Project Gorgon rebalances combat, adds more Yetis

Who doesn’t want more Yetis? If you enjoy these abominable creatures, Project Gorgon has good news for you: all new levels in the Yeti caves to explore and find treasure in as well as new Yeti War Screamers to fight. Created for groups, these new areas have four unique sub-bosses and five special locked chests that hold level 40-50 loot and crafting materials.

Another significant change is the rebalancing of combat. In order to give other roles more meaning in fights (such as healers, rage reduction), the devs have lengthened fights with high-level non-elite mobs have been lengthened by simultaneously giving the mobs more health and nerfing DPS equipment. Said monsters will offer more XP to compensate for the longer kill time. Those who play as werewolves will also note that their abilities have changes quite a bit.

This recent update also reworked the power system to remove power cost for basic abilities, added a new transmutation system that allows players to randomly re-roll powers on their gear, and revamped the augment system to allow players to add any power as an augmentation instead of having lists of specific powers to manage. In addition to this, players can now trade with certain NPCs for gear. Full details on all these changes can be found in the update notes.

When i read this, what my eyes read and my mind interprets is, grind.    And that’s not always such a bad thing, but this is when I start to pine for VR mmos that are far simpler and based more on the immersion.   Where just killing one orc, goblin, or Yeti would be an entire adventure unto itself and pulse-pounding.  Until you’ve tried combat in VR you can’t really know quite how the sense of scale feels, how odd it would be for a 3-4 foot tall goblin to be trying to harm you, or how frightening it will be for a 10 foot tall Yeti to be up in your grill wanting to do you some harm. The realism and feeling of being there in VR can’t be matched by any game you watch on a flat screen. 
That’s the stuff I’m looking forward to.

DahkohtLewin Not yet from the looks of it.  Right now it’s been a mix of system reworks and other transitional stuff to get ready for Steam alpha.

No power cost for basic abilities is awesome news. Also, there is a Halloween event going on in Project: Gorgon. Just sacrifice some stuff in Serbule’s central altar and watch. There are tons of tombstones around it and people running around as giant bats. Fun!

Have they said how close they are to putting up on Steam for  early access ? Missed the Kickstarter on it.
