Saga of Lucimia - Moving to Full Loot PvP & Cash Shop

In order to maximize our revenue, we’ll also be looking into adding some kind of a cash shop to the game. It’s just the way things are done these days, and unfortunately we don’t see us being able to generate enough revenue from merely having a monthly subscription. Far too many people have complained that they won’t play our game because it has a box fee AND a monthly subscription, and like many others who are faced with these sorts of realities in this business, we have to keep the lights on, and that means making sacrifices to our core business principles in order to hit the bottom line.

Skyforge Turning to a Turn-Based Strategy MMO!

As a new MMO, Skyforge has been critically acclaimed for many of its features, its presentation, visuals, and most importantly its combat. However, seeing as Skyforge is still very much in development, it’s common to have certain game functions change over time, ranging from minor mechanical changes to complete gameplay alterations. With this in mind, it has been decided that Skyforge will be, by no later than September 2016, transitioning back to its original pre-alpha design of a Turn-Based Strategy MMO!

Players may be concerned about this change so we're here to provide a very brief preview of things to come.

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen to Add New Instance and Dungeon Finder

Just finished the instanced dungeon and dungeon finder design doc -- will distribute shortly in the Blog section.

Spoke with our lead programmer -- teleporting people to the entrance of a dungeon from various locations shouldn't be difficult to implement once we can define those areas in 3d space.

Basically, anyone who buys the teleporter item from the cash shop can be taken to the entrance of the instance.
