Hordes.io alpha 22
Alpha 22 - 01.11.2017[edit | edit source]
Welcome to the Alpha 22 Update Blog post. Alpha 22 will introduce a bunch of smaller features to Hordes, some of which have been heavily requested by the community. Gone are the days of having to sacrifice items in order to complete your collection of Protecterons. We’ve also decided to plant some beautiful trees around the otherwise monster-ridden lands of Hordes. There is one tree in particular that must be remembered!
Bags[edit | edit source]
With bags, we are introducing a new item type to Hordes. Bags will allow you to increase the size of your inventory, so you can carry more stuff! They have their own slot in the character panel, and you can simply equip a bag by right clicking or dragging the bag in your bag slot. Bags have a unique stat, that only they will provide: Extra slots. As soon as you equip a bag, you will see your inventory grow in size, which will allow you to farm much more efficiently and also store more items in the future. Extra slots are added on top of your baseline 21 inventory slots.
Note: Once you have equipped a bag, in order to un-equip it, you need to make sure that the slots which the bag provides are empty - otherwise you’d lose your items.
Added 5 types of bags to the game: See Bag
Trees[edit | edit source]
For the longest time, the unruly lands of Hordes have consisted mostly of grass plains, rocky roads, and dry deserts. However, we decided to spice it up and planted trees. Crazy people would call that a forest! We hope to deliver a cozier atmosphere in Hordes and immerse you as a player. During the testing of the new tree models, the community honored the occasion by deciding on a name for the biggest tree on the central mountain of Hordes. This magical tree shall henceforth be known as the Yggdrasil, tree of life. This sacred location will be used for community gatherings, rituals such as the sacrificial offering of botters and jerks to the gods, and dance battles 💃 (more on that coming up soon).
Emotes[edit | edit source]
A new emote system is coming, and we decided to test it with the first emote! Using emotes is easy - you can access them by typing in the chat box. Our first emote is /dance. Try it, it’s fun and you’ll quickly find yourself battling it out on the dance floor. There are currently still a few bugs with the emote system, please bear with us while we fix them.
GM Crowns[edit | edit source]
GMs now have a new crown: The obsidian crown. This will allow you to spot a GM faster.
Changes[edit | edit source]
DEK BOOTS ARE REAL[edit | edit source]
We decided to increase the drop rates of offpiece armor types slightly (compared to other item types). This does not affect the levels of dropped items. The level rates have not been touched, promise!
COUNTER INFLATION[edit | edit source]
With the increased amount of inventory slots (tripled for high level players), we felt that it was in place to slightly decrease the amount of items dropped.
Chance of gold dropping, rather than item, increased by 5%
SLIME DEFLATION[edit | edit source]
We have decreased the size of slimes slightly and altered their death animation to be less intrusive.. to the floor. They made it quite hard to see items on the ground, so we decided to change that.
Bugfixes[edit | edit source]
INVISIBLE ITEMS[edit | edit source]
Fixed a bug with the Ancient Talisman and Infernal Staff missing their artworks.
