This is a bit of a strange one. There's a lot that's rather complex about the playstyle that throws you into the deep end, and there's not a whole lot of time for managing items and purchase in between levels. The mechanics seem fine for the most part, although there is a lot to get the hang of from the start.

The map description is very lacking - while there is a lot of information in the preview picture provided, I would like to see the map's description more fleshed out in the written component. There is also some discrepancy regarding the name of the map's creator, although I do notice that your profile says you use the name "Kilix" on US East. All the same, I would like to see a bit more evidence, if possible, of your work on this project as I have heard that you have uploaded resources that weren't your own before? I have no doubt that someone capable of making a map with these kinds of systems and mechanics would be more than capable of doing that.

Until then, this will be set to "Awaiting update".

Yes, I did make the map. From scratch. If you notice - this account I’m using was created in 2005. 16 years ago.

As for the uploading resources that aren’t mine part, I’m assuming you’re referencing a troll comment from 2008. I’m not sure how you want me to verify I’m the sole creator. I don’t want to make a new hive username as this one has 16 years seniority. I can post screenshots of the 50 or so versions as the map has morphed from the original idea to what it is now?

I can change the load screen? I’m not sure what you are looking for.

In regard to the game mechanics, I’m working on making it a little more “new guy” friendly. You’re right, there is a lot going on in the beginning if you have never played before. I may have to introduce mechanics slower.

When I have a little extra time, I can update the maps description. No worries there.

Cheers

Yeah, I just had to verify based on some other map reviewers.

Something else I forgot to mention (that I should have mentioned in the review) is there was request for a credit list. But if everything is made from scratch and, as far as I can tell, there were no imports... I think it would be a very short credit list, so that should actually be fine. Although I did notice some sound bytes from other games - those may need a mention.

Hey KiliX, played this with you last night (you were necro, i was mystic). Just wanted to comment and say this entire map experience was fantastic. Highlights were the great music, the animation movement between maps (when the map of the next chapter opens up before us), as well as the details to each specific map, like the spider boss crossing the screen as we venture forward, or the lava rising and falling in the Balrog's boss fight lair.

Just wanted to say though, in the version we played (.G, not the current hive version) my game crashed when I tabbed out while sitting in the "ready" circle for the next chapter. I also crashed in the current hive version (.F) when tabbing out too, but i think i already mentioned that to you ingame.

Yeah, I figured that's what happened.

I've FINALLY fixed the tab-out desync, and will be updated in the next version. I tested it multiple times on different resolutions and can confirm it has been fixed.

Feel free to add me on bnet or join the discord, so you can jump in on future tests.

Cheers

Played it today with my buddy, we used Version v1.01f so maybe some points are out of date.

Pro:
  • The overall look from every single map is just fantastic, there are so many cool ideas, we never got bored (I could tell so many things we liked but i prefer to remain vague to prevent spoilers)
  • The extended UI Features are well placed and supports the overview (maybe you can add the feature, that if you click on a friend hero portrait, you jump to him)
  • The stage system is really nice and the great thing about it is that you could expand it endlessly (also random stages with random events)
  • Passive abilites system: We liked the fact you could add effects to existing spells
Neutral:
  • The start is really overwhelming, maybe you can change stage 1 and 2, so the players have enough time to get the systems
  • In the beginning the Items System was bit confusing but in the end we could handle it. Currently (or mostly) the bag holds one item, so it does not bring much added value in comparison to directly drop the item
  • We received 3 item types: Armor, Trinket, Weapon Mod + Potion -> there are always 2 item spots not filled but maybe we missed something otherwise you could add some more item types
  • The are a lot of item/hero states/attributes but they are mostly to close to each other. Let me give an example: You can increase your HP with Constituion, Endurance, Fortitude and at least pure Strength. Pure strength gives the same in the end like endurance but additional a scaling and dmg. It would be nicer if the talents felt more unique, or at least more distinct.
  • In most games, there is a way to increase your spells, we just found the passive abilitie system but there was no other way to increase your spells. Would be way more motivating, if there is any chance to increase the power of your own spells (maybe a tomes system)
  • Please give some camera controll (maybe you can add the cam slider function from the UI Template: UI Template)
Negativ:
  • In the end, the entire game revolves around your hero, but this is where the biggest weakness lies, the spells. Most of them are pure basic spells and you dont have to do anything while the fights. I'll take my hero the paladin as example:
  1. the Paladin heal is way to weak, the heal pots are in compare completly overtuned
  2. blessing of thunder is just a passiv spell, that you press every 30 seconds
  3. blessing of justice is also a passiv but that is even only a autocast spell
  4. so in the end they only "active" spell from the paladin is thunder clap
Bugs:
  • I am not sure if this is intentional but I played a paladin and my friend a warlock and when he uses his shield, every positiv buff will be removed (like from the paladin) and you cant reply a postiv buff as long as the shield is active ("The unit is magic immune"). That felt weird and mostly he didnt used his shield.
  • Holy Protection: This passive revives any hero with 100% life (according to the description it should be 10%) from this point on we no longer had to fear death:grin:
  • Blessing of Justice: You receive 20% strength but if you die with the buff u still have the same amount of str (no reset of str) and if you use the spell again you gain additional 20% strength (you can easy reproduce the bug if die with blessing and rebuff yourself over and over again)
  • Attributes: There are some bugs with the attributes str, agi and int. It looks like there is some weird calculating, I had some str items + points in strength talent (according to tooltip +53 str) but my hero just had 13 str :ugly: I also lost over 50% of my str after I pressed "select all" for the items
  • Necro skeletts spawned outside the ship (and overall hes fucked because of no corpse)
  • I had 7% chance for crit but every hit was a crit

That so far, I hope you can do something with my feedback and ty for this handsome map we will play it again with other classes and higher difficult !

Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated.

-Somewhere between F and H, I reworked how item bonuses were calculated, which should fix the permanent loss of STR, and the 'take all' bugs.
-I'll address the necro shield bug, didn't know it was an issue.
-I'm in the process of reworking Paladin and Necro (the two most passive classes)
-Necro's amplify damage increases crit chance by 70% on enemies, so maybe that's why you were critting so much
-I'm not sure if you noticed, but spell damage is based on your attributes. The tooltip automatically updates with the new damage numbers. Blue text is Int based, Red is Str based, etc..


Some other notes:

-Your additional slots can be filled with items such as Necro's "soulstone", etc.
-I will definitely be nerfing potions, they are very strong ATM


Again, thank you for your feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed the map.

Hi there!

Me and my friend loved Tomb of Jarachon and where really really excited to try this out. Unfortunately my friend can't play it, everytime he tries to join the lobby he instantly gets kicked out. This does not happen with any other map we play. Have you encountered this before and know a fix?

Please make a proper credits list from: Resources in use by Tomb of the Dragon
Simply linking to this isn't being nice to those who spent time making those lovely resources.
I have very limited time. I would love to go through all 11 pages of that and created a detailed list, but at the same time I also want to improve the map, thus the community in return. Not sure how to handle that.

It won't take long to at least credit the resource maker names, few minutes, tops.

Please use the yellow Edit button at the bottom of your posts and add text there instead of writing one post after another of yours unless it's an important update.

Excuse me, I'm a Chinese player. I translated this with translation software.So there may be some grammatical errors or inaccuracies.
I may need a button to turn off this terrible font.Translation software can correctly translate normal texts, but they can't correctly identify this artistic font. This makes it difficult for me to continue the game, and a lot of texts need to be typed manually to be translated.
So I hope I can have a button to set the font, and the normal font plus translation software can make my friends and I play games more smoothly.

I have no plans to change the font in the near future. The font is not only used as a game font, but also as the font on many, many textures in game as well as background textures. This would require me changing/reworking a lot of assets.

The game is cool from a technical stand point but my main issue is - and this could be me playing it with too small of a party - is how big some bosses are and how much damage they deal. On the first level, the murloc, killed me 4 times as the valk with 25? vit (800 hp) which was almost every point into vit from lvl 1 (not all, i think i did 15 vit and 10 might) and i was still dying several times while standing in mid. The other players who hadn't put any points into anything were dying faster.
Afterwards we're doing the green lever lizzard - he hit for 380 damage and killed me in 3 hits with 991 hp.
It isn't really clear - to me - if the tank is supposed to ONLY put points into vit and not do anything else, but if that is the case, why even give me stat points? Just put all my points into vit by default so i don't get excited about a stat system.
Otherwise, I found the item system somewhat confusing as well - was trying to pick up murloc eggs and chracter kept saying 'not enough inventory', but other times my pet would properly navigate and pick it up.
All in all, the UI/gfx/music/tech - 10/10.
gameplay, 6/10, at least as a group of 3. It's possible the game just doesn't scale for 3 and we were wasting our time, though.
anyways, we lost to the green lizard, he was almost dead but the combat system leaves a lot to be desired IMO, having a game feel so diablo inspired but not being able to either spam potions or tank more than one hit made it feel more like a hardcore punishing rogue-like with diablo music.

You have some valid points for sure.

Typically, if no one is loading an account, a mystic is almost mandatory. His AoE and single target heals will help keep you alive. All stages are randomized except stage 1 and stage 10. The 'Forest Temple' stage is probably one of the hardest stages to get early, so you got hit with the RNG hammer there. The game is really hard to scale with loading players, but I feel it's at a good medium at this point.

For future, It's completely do-able with 3. Have a mystic in the party, and your life will get easier. After you have a few 'account levels' behind you, you can then transition to not having a dedicated healer. I will also lower the cooldown on potions for next version.

Thank you for trying it out, I'll try to adjust to accommodate some of your input. The game is still very much a work in progress.

We'll take this tip and run with it! We did not have a mystic. I think i liked the valk(ranger? sorry, i don't remember the name. The tanky gal on the right side) a lot so having a healer i think will help us big time. And to clarify - I had a typo - we ran it with 2 - but tomorrow we can run it with 3, we'll be sure to include mystic and i'll post more feedback soon

(we started with 3 and he quit after we died to murloc a bunch)

Hi, I really like your game. It's amazing.

But, I got an issue with the movement speed - It seems the bonus ms from equipment does not apply

Can you check if it works properly?

Hey guys.

Apologies for the noob question...

I am not sure if I am doing this the right way. When I start a new game, my items are saved but I am not sure how to load the leveled character from a previous game. It looks like I always start from character level 1 which is really a pain, as I need to start over in order to be able to use my saved items and it obviously makes it a lot harder to keep improving the character level / stats. Is that intentional, or am I doing something wrong?

Also, I tried saving a game, but when I try to load the saved game the application crashes as soon as it loads the map.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you

Everything is saved and loaded automatically, you shouldn't have to do anything. The Hero levels reset each game - but account levels save. Spend account points at the merchant in one of the towns to boost your hero from the very beginning. If you are still having trouble, join our discord and someone can help you gain a few early account levels easily to get you started.

The game is very heavily loot based, as all items are randomly generated when they drop.

Here is a twitch VOD of a few people running it in nightmare mode, maybe take a look at what they do. Game starts at the 5 minute mark:

Thank bro :) As I play it solo for now, what I did to help me out was to farm creeps for the crafting materials and gold (you sell what they drop), and use the mats to lower the level requirement for the weapon and trinket items I had that were decent. I dropped it down to level 4 which you can get easy in map 1.
I use all the account points on magic find boost (cos I am a greedy %^$^%@ XD)
It is tough to complete even normal when solo, however I was able to do it with necro and the amazon (she is not called amazon XD).
I am no developer, however the huge amount of work and thought and love put into the map is obvious... thank you for this <3

I have a couple of potential bugs to report if you have the time...

In the map with the optional quest to escort the caravan, 2 out of 3 times I got it, the caravan never started to move, it just stayed there.
In the map where you have to burn 8 corpses for the optional quest (this may not be a bug, it may be me being blind) I could only find 7 (and I did go through the map as thoroughly as I could).

Just found another bug I think. I happened to step on the ready area as the timer was running out from stage 7 to 8. Stage 8 was the one with the ship where you fight of the wwaves then the boss appears. I got 2 bosses XD it ended normally when I killed one of them. However when it loaded the next stage it looks like it is loading it twice? I.e. The map unfolding in the graph seems to be done twice.
One favour if you think it is ok and if it is simple to implement. Allow the old diablo option when playing solo to type "-players X" where X is a number from 1 to max allowed players. This way you allow weaker / starter characters to cope, while also allowing more seasoned characters to power farm :)
Thank you once more for all the work on the map, it is really amazing not just technically but also the amound of imagination :) <3

Hey man, hope you are well :)

Couple of things...

I think the item drop nerf is a bit too much imo. It looks very hard now for someone starting to play on 1.60(b) to get to a decent level quickly.
Also when 1.60 came out I lost 3 trinkets. I saved before I left the game but did not place my items in the chests. Normally when starting the next game they would then appear in the eqipment rack. However consistently that did not happen while 1.60 was the version I was using.
Will let you know if it happens with 1.60b.
The frequency of drops seems to be very low atm. This makes it a lot harder and more time consuming to finish quests where you have to collect X amount of items dropped (like the catacombs new quest).

One more thing about auras. I am not sure if this is a visual or an actual bug... I get an item with command aura for example. The aura displays for a second or 2 in my hero status. The damage increase is added to the main damage (white numbers) instead of showing with green +XX next to the main damage. After the first 2-3 seconds, the aura dissappears from the hero status and the damage is also removed, so it shows as if I have no aura applied.

Anyway, just a bit of feedback in case it helps and I am not the only one seeing it like this :p
