We had Sven Ehrentraut, a Spellborn designer who worked on the Combat Systems along with El Drijver (Lead Designer Spellborn Int. Ltd.), David Perry (CCO Acclaim), Howard Marks (CEO Acclaim), Aaron Rose (Director of Marketing), David Jun (Director of Games) and myself. We talked about the upcoming Patch, with the new Arena system and answered player questions.
Q: Patch 1.0.4 comes when?[Glenn Hill]
A: It's live in europe now, I'm not sure when Acclaim rolls out.
Hist: We got the files today. We will be testing them and will be announcing a patch date soon.
Q: Is there anything in the works to keep players from abusing the environment to kill NPCs? (other than GM and Player policing)[Joseph Milne]
A: Some behaviour of the Mobs wasn't working as intended. This has been improved in 1.0.4, we'll gather feedback to see how it turns out now.
Q: What happened to the tavern minigames and will they be added sometime in the future?[Joseph Pegg]
A: I have to check why these were turned off
Q: When is the nerf to revenge coming? All I see in the patch notes about it is stopping revenge from hurting yourself...basically giving it even less risk.[Darren Flood]
A: we have an update on this that would work globally on all sorts of dots and similar effects. We test this at the moment and when it all looks as good as it does at the moment, we'll rolling this out with the hotfix
Q: Is the Rune Mage's burn effect harming teammates an intended effect? If so, why is this? [Mike Bitton]
A: yes, there are two effects: Burn can set a melee attacker on fire, and works as a drawback. The attacker himself receives Flame, which cannot set others on fire
Q: dont have question this coming patch wondering if they will be giving us more custamizing for interface mainly for text color and resize the chat windows[william kappe]
A: Eventually, but this won't arrive soon
Q: YOU GUYS RULE[Nathan Van Dyne]
Q: Will Their Be Equipment later on that Would give players more of a reason to change their Armor? I am Currently level 20 and still useing my level 1 armor cause I made it That Good Looking from Starting Creation =)[Adrian Wrzodak]
A: yeah, we have pieces that look alot better than the starter gear. But if you like the way your character looks, we won't force you to farm for something else.
Q: Its most 46+ mobs they are buggy dmg sometimes perma healing , or like the posion dot mega[Joshua Smith]
