Legends of Aria adds a new dungeon and Dark Sorcery skills to the test server

    
11

It’s time to get experimental in Legends of Aria, as the game’s test server has kicked out an update that brings all sorts of spooky dark things for players to poke at.

Specifically, this test server update introduces the new Sorcery and Summoning skills, which lets players craft a character that can use summoned Wisps to summon even bigger temporary critters like chasers and constructs, or even use those wisps to create magical armor or consume an orb to provide increased regeneration for a short time. Would-be Sorcerers will need to bear in mind, however, that wielding a Sorcery weapon restricts them from receiving healing from outside sources.

In addition, this new test build opens up the Monolith, a three level dungeon with five mini-bosses and one final boss. Regular monsters in the dungeon have a chance to drop rare decorations and artifacts, and each boss has both a unique loot table and a shared loot table. Those who want to plumb these new depths can find the entrance at the Southern Hills Cemetery.

Naturally, since this is all on the experimental server, things are subject to change and adjust, but the new stuff might be worth a look for players and the curious. Expect it all live in the $19.99 Dark Sorcery DLC launching soon.

I’m gonna check it out…but the reviews are a bit harsh.

Don’t get scammed, man. They’re selling DLC for a buggy, early access game that’s very light in content and substance. If you really are interested for some reason, try out the F2P version and see for yourself. Give yourself several hours to see exactly how shallow the game is.

The game is dying and doesn’t have a chance of recovering at this point.

Wake us up when the tools to mod and host servers are released (as promised). Then players will make their own custom content and server rules, and not need to deal with the official releases.

“Expect it all live in the $19.99 Dark Sorcery DLC launching soon.” What a scam, charging for DLC for a game in early access. Steam shouldn’t even allow this. I can’t wait for this game to go under so they can no longer screw people out of money.

I’ve never had genuine hate for a dev team before.
DLC when what we already paid for is garbage, no bloody way.
I put 200 hours into this game when it was PvE.
No way are they getting another minute or another cent.
Goodbye.

Thanks for the article, Ben!

I’m curious to hear what people here think of this game, because fantasy games with titles like Legend of [a bunch of consonants and vowels we put together because we think it sounds cool] don’t really tell you much about the game.

Yes, I know that an aria is a kind of operatic singing — but I have to doubt that we’re playing medieval-fantasy opera adventurers in this one. Tuxedos and ball gowns generally make for lousy armor :-)

Note to all fantasy world creators — the next time you’re tempted to dip into Ye Olde Bucket Of Random Vowels and Consonants(tm) to name your game, please re-think.

The Saga of Prqwbdfixhvglvg: Book One might sound cool to you, but it doesn’t communicate a whole lot. :-)

Dude, everyone knows that faux-medieval fantasy lands have to end with ‘ia’ or they just have no world-cred. And it’s a world, with stories! So naturally it has to be one of:

Saga of
Realms of
Legends of
Tales of

I swear if you slapped some pretty screenshots on a game called Saga of Genericia people would buy it.

I didn’t think pre-orders had opened for that yet. Is it on steam, or is it stand-alone? *Opens wallet*
