Skyforge revamps PvP with the Gods at War update

The newest update for Skyforge is now live and changes a lot about the way PvP works. Before, PvP had gear scaling to the point that it was almost irrelevant while walking in, but now gear scaling has more factors affecting that scale. It also introduces the new PvP-based Honor stat, which affects your overall stats and how much damage you’ll deal on balance. Players who wish to accomplish a lot in PvP will want to stack on Honor via stat adjustment. There’s also the new Happy Hour system, which encourages you to take part in PvP at set times for increased rewards across the board.

Speaking of increased rewards, the game is also rolling out the myLoot Marketplace as a means of getting more stuff for myCoins. Taking part in events and purchasing items earn myCoins, and said coins can be used for purchasing items in the marketplace, a sort of “here’s your extra for buying something” reward. Check out the full rundown if you’re looking for more details on the new system.

Skyforge details the coming changes to PvP with new stats

There’s been a bit of a problem with the balance of PvP in Skyforge. The developers want players to be rewarded for accomplishments in PvP, but the scaling system wasn’t working and players with good PvE gear were still coming out on top. Hence the new Honor stat being added to the game with the upcoming Gods at War patch, which should help players with a PvP focus outplay those who are running with whatever stats work for PvE.

Honor caps will increase with each season, but the maximum bonus for Honor will always be at 35% extra health and 20% extra damage in PvP. Honor will always be available through stat replacement, which requires a special item earned through taking part in PvP matches. In short, you’ll get more Honor stats by taking part in more PvP combat, and PvP combat will allow you to gain Honor stats which in turn make you better at PvP. It’s rather straightforward as progression goes, really.

Skyforge’s Gods at War update to introduce PvP balance changes and ladder system

A battle of divine proportions is coming to Skyforge in its upcoming Gods at War update, which will bring “three major innovations” to the game’s PvP experience. Perhaps most notably, the update will implement new balance and scaling changes to the game’s Battle of Golems, Battle of Equals, and Massive Battle PvP game modes, where players’ weapon and gear stats will be adjusted to set combatants on a level playing field. In addition, Gods at War will introduce a new stat that increases a character’s PvP abilities regardless of PvE experience.

On top of the balance changes, Gods at War will also replace the current PvP directives with a new ladder system, allowing players to climb the ranks for bragging rights and in-game rewards. In addition to earning rewards for reaching certain milestones on the PvP ladder, players will also be rewarded based on their ranks at the end of every season, with prizes ranging from consumables to legendary weapons. And last, but not least, the update will add PvP Happy Hours, specific time windows during which rewards from PvP activities will be significantly increased. The Gods at War update will be dropping Wednesday, July 11th, on PC and Thursday, July 12th, on Xbox and PS4.

Skyforge answers player questions about future plans

So what’s in the cards for the future of Skyforge? Players always want to know, and the most recent set of community questions and answers is covering exactly that. For example, the future does not appear to include new Invasion opponents or new divine form upgrades; while there are new enemy groups planned, they’re planned for a new form of challenge rather than more invasions. Nor are the developers willing to reveal any of the brainstorming about the next class to enter the game, although player requests for more support classes are being heard.

What is confirmed for the future at this point include new stories about the familiar areas of the game world, new improvements to the UI to make it easier to figure out how your character is progressing, and new class balance passes. There are also plans to keep a close eye on gear upgrading and areas where Elder Gods can be used, as both are part of the fun of the game. Check out the full Q&A if you want to know more about what happens next for the title.

One Shots: A well-rounded Hobbit (breakfast)

With the prodigious and well-known appetite of Hobbits, it’s a total surprise to me that the Shire hasn’t been stripped bare with these creatures’ all-consuming need for tummy fuel. Maybe that’s what the Scouring of the Shire was? It wasn’t in the movies, I wouldn’t know.

Anyway, Amorey contemplates eating 9,000 calories in one go: “Please note the very surprised look on my Hobbit’s face: ‘What about second breakfast ? Luncheon ? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper?’ Eleven years in LOTRO is a big milestone for a tiny Hobbit.”

Also, do they have food wars? Weight watchers? I have so many questions about the dietary lives of these people.

The Daily Grind: What has been the best MMO expansion or update of 2018 so far?

We are about to put four months of 2018 in the can, and during that time there has been quite a lot of movement in the MMO field with a few launches, reboots, and plenty of updates.

So far this year, Trove busted out its Heroes expansion, Skyforge added a new class with Overgrowth, TERA made the jump to consoles, and RIFT tried its hand at a progression server. That’s just scratching the surface, because it seems like every week we see several major updates come through.

Looking at the four-month start to this year, what would you say is the best MMO expansion or update so far? Yes, there is plenty coming, but what about content that’s already been released?
