The Journey of the Divine patch is live in Skyforge today, heralding several new game systems:
Invasion Avatars – The deadly Avatars of invading alien gods that attack during massive Invasion events and are some of the most dangerous foes in Skyforge yet.
Divine Specializations – Powerful specializations can be accessed only by those who successfully vanquish the deadly Avatars during Invasions
Pantheon Academies – Members of a Pantheon guild can now help train new players to Skyforge to earn gain great rewards as the player progresses, allowing mutual encouragement from both parties to unlock their godly powers
Symbols & Rewards – Symbol navigation in the Divine Atlas has been made easier and now players can manually choose their rewards from an Adventure.
A recent dev blog shed more light on the divine specializations in particular. Players will face off against opposing deities during planetary invasions in order to specialize in a new form of divinity and becoming far more powerful as a result? That’s the centerpiece of the new divine specializations, and it should prompt even the more cynical of Aelion’s deity denizens to consider a fair fight for the rewards it will bring.
Divine specializations are unlocked via Divine Revelations, which are themselves acquired as you smash up enemy avatars during invasion events. The resultant bits of the Ascension Atlas are opened up and provide a symbol for the character upon completely unlocking the nodes within a given specialization field. It’s a good way to make your character that much stronger; check out the full entry for the details on how the specializations will improve your character’s abilities.
