Ethyrial: Echoes of Yore has had a bumpy launch period. However, the Gellyberry Studios team is continuing to improve the experience, releasing a 2023 roadmap that also includes a number of improvements, new features, and overhauls.
To recap, the game was somewhat undercooked at launch, and some players were affected by some big glitches. One of them was even charging the monthly subscription fee multiple times. The team apologized and those overcharged were issued refunds. Gellyberry has been fixing bugs and performance since, but with an MMORPG, there are features on the way too..
The new roadmap is packed. In June, there will be lots of new additions to the game, but also additional fixes, overhauls, and improvements. Among the fixes and improvements include a balance and class design patch that will affect ability and scaling, an Alchemy overhaul, and some server merges. As for the server merges, it remains to be seen how many and when.
For those new features and additions to the game, expect 30 new class spells, the addition of guilds, quests, 15 new monster types, 18 new monster camps for those monster types, and more. With the addition of all these monsters and monster camps, the team is adding new materials that are coming with the monsters, including crafting recipes that will help bridge gaps in stat distributions.
Next month personal player housing properties will unlock. Ethyrial is also getting rated PVP season 1 with the addition of 2v2 and 3v3 rated arenas. Expect 15 additional new monster camps, new quests, and the introduction of an elemental rift that means a 20-player endgame raid. Also in July are overhauls for fishing and cooking and new fresh servers.
In August, Ethyrial will get over 200 profession recipes across alchemy, cooking, blacksmithing, leatherworking, and tailoring. Expect rescaled XP tables from levels 1 to 30, more new quests, and the addition of NPC bounty hunters. The NPC bounty hunters will collect on players who are carrying infamy.
In addition to all this, the team promises to keep working on the known issues that they are keeping track of, but this summer roadmap is intended to give an idea where they are and where they're planning to go.
