Rage of Mages 2: class & monsters rebalance

Some changes which we made over past weeks (to be in touch – please join our discord):

1. Code update by @WarBeginner:

  • the way to control teleport distance
  • fixed bug with ‘max_skill>100’;
  • fixed bug with max stats potions for witch/amazon
  • new min-max exp brackets for quests

2. Server updates:

  • class changes:
    amazon +13 reaction (more defence); mage +4 strenght (with proper items (body+1 hp+50 could tank by using ‘l’ key and auto-heal; become paladin-like); new stats:
    warrior 52 50 48 46
    amazon 48 65 52 52
    mage 52 46 52 50
    witch 43 58 65 50
  • 5th monsters: reduced damage and defence; buffed experience
  • duration of ‘Bless’ and ‘Haste’ spells doubled; elven scrolls costs increased x1.5
  • dragon resistances revamped (swap earth with water)
    (please note that text descriptions at scrolls display wrong information; normal scrolls works as 50 mastery skill; elven as 100 mastery skill)
  • summon spellbook cost: 75kk->25kk
  • Added rule:
    13. It is forbidden to deliberately block the passage of a player; especially with the goal that the player was killed by monsters (except for ‘PvP’ maps); it includes stone walls spell, using summoned creatures or blocking player with ‘body’ (or any other method).
  • Mana costs:
    teleport 180 -> 360 (teleport should be escape option, not a way to move around)
    fireball 30 -> 40
    firewall 60 -> 100
    poison cloud 60 -> 100
    prismatic spray mana: 70->60
  • Added ‘horror’ difficulty – please test it for blunders: shops, bugged mobs, exploits etc
  • price increased for scrolls: elven magic arrows
    reduced for scrolls: summon and control spirit
  • teleport scrolls distance (tp for warrior should work like ‘dash’/’jump’ skills)
    common 50k 3 distance
    elven 500k 6 distance
  • 2-handed melee weapons now give additional defence, absorption, attack speed; their cost reduced (10%)
  • attack speed of spears reduced (they always were OP); spears got bonus to attack
  • all undeads and necromancers got astral resistance; also succubus got a bit
  • mage’s teleport distance is limited to 12 (at 110 skill)
  • orcs tp distance fixed
  • troll4/5 stone curse fixed
  • Added table with monsters
  • reduced distances to certain magic spells
  • elite mage armour price buffed (so it will come up at horror maps as tavern rewards)
  • bracelet/amulet price 10x (now it’s high-end equipment; you will still be able to upgrade it with quests)
  • reduced exp for dragon4 (750k->500k)
  • exp penalty readjusted: ‘Hard’: -10%; ‘Horror’: -15%
  • summoned spirits (and also skeletons, zombies) can’t regenerate or be healed

3. @klen312 (Мафусаил) made a script to cancel quests automatically

4. Maps

  • Changed order of maps for medium and hard maps
  • rebelanced and fixed bugs at medium maps
  • ‘Monsters’ map is more accessible for newbies who wish to hunt trolls
  • ‘Turtle Beach’ map live
  • added shops at central towns (Ordeal, Terra, Valley)
  • removed some minor quests from medium maps and revamped a bit
  • no more intercept dragon4 quests at ‘hard’ for now (replaced with ‘kill’)
  • reduced troll4 respawn
  • ‘Middle’ and ‘Turtle Beach’ map quests revamp
  • removed loads of ‘minor’ quests from medium maps (so rolling for good quest will be easier). Please report about ‘bad’ quests (which give low exp.. except easy maps)
  •  Judas got another dragon3
  • Middle
    – added dragon4 S
    – reduced respawn troll4
    – added q for ogre 4
  • Added experemental intercept dragon4 quest at Horror maps. BEWARE! It’s not an easy task as it was before. Try it on your own risk.
