New Event - Defend The King
Defend The King is a new event that is focused on team defense. You and your team will work together to defend your king from the enemies. At the start of this event everybody will rush to the center where magic walls will count down until they disappear. The goal is to push past the other team to get to their king and defeat him. After the king is killed a new round will automatically start and everybody will be teleported back to the middle to fight again.
Defend The King will test out our new Player Balance system. After you join the event your level, skills, health, mana and equipment will TEMPORARILY be scaled so that everybody inside is equal. After the event ends your character will be back to normal. It's very difficult to perfectly balance events because all different level, skill and equipment ranges can participate. We are interested to hear your feedback on this system and want to see how it effects events when only skill decides the winner. If players don't want this system we can disable it after gathering information.
We are introducing a new system called Soul Contracts. This is a new secure and fully automated way to trade your character to another player in-game. One of the most common requests that I receive is to help to middle man for character trades. In the past, it was difficult to get both players online at the same time and trading characters was a hassle.
This new feature will allow you to create a tradable doll in-game called a Soul Contract. If you trade this doll with another player they will automatically receive the character on their account and you will receive the items.
You can find more information by clicking the 'Character Transfer' button on the account management page. You must have access to your registered email address to create a Soul Contract.
Shaman Daily Task Changes
We have done an overhaul of the [Daily Task] Shaman NPC located below Thais Depot. We have listened to feedback and looked at thousands of previous tasks completed to manually tweak each task that is available. The very difficult tasks are now significantly easier. We hope this will encourage players to give different tasks a chance instead of canceling them.
If you have any feedback or notice and bugs, please post them in this thread.
New Event - Zombie Event
This event was been suggested on the forum multiple times and we're finally implementing it into the server. This event has a chance to start randomly along with our other events every 30 minutes. The goal of the event is to avoid Zombies from infecting you, if you get touched then you're out! As time goes on the rate of Zombies being summoned is increased and it becomes more difficult to avoid them. If players are still alive after 10 minutes then everybody in the event will win 20x Noxious Tokens. You can't attack the Zombies or other players and magic walls are disabled. Do you have what it takes to survive?
• The top player will win 20x Noxious Tokens
• 2nd to 5th place will win 15x Noxious Tokens.
• After 10 minutes, everybody inside wins 20x Noxious Tokens.
You will gain 1 score for every second you're alive. You can view the scoreboard on the Event History page.
We look forward to hearing your feedback after you try out the new event!
NoxiousOT Christmas Update
As the winter season comes and Christmas is just around the corner it's time to bring a little festive spirit into NoxiousOT. We will be introducing a few new fun things for you to enjoy over the holidays.
New Hunting Areas
First, we will be introducing massive new hunting areas that are accessible to all players. There is a new teleporter under Thais depot called Winters which will take you to our snowy themed zone. This new zone is a starting point which branches off into many other places to hunt. There are a total of seven new areas with different monster types for you to explore. There is a mix of custom monsters, buffed elder type monsters, regular monsters like frost dragon hatchlings, medusas, demons, ghastly dragons and many more. We have also slightly expanded the Dragon Lord spawn north of Onett.
New Quest Line
In addition to the new hunting locations, we are also introducing a new quest line. You can start this quest by talking to Atmos The Sage inside of Winters. This is a new five part quest that will unlock new hunting areas and give you experience, gold and task credit for completing it. There is an epic pyramid puzzle, mini-bosses to fight, objects to find and an ending boss with a unique reward. We hope you enjoy it!
New Houses & Guildhall
There has always been a very high demand for houses in Thais, but it has been difficult to fit more houses into the city. We are introducing four new large, two story houses outside of the south gate in Thais. In addition to these new houses, we are adding a new castle-like Guild Hall, which will be our biggest and only custom hall in NoxiousOT. You can find it located outside of the south gate of Thais. If there is demand for more custom housing then we can add more in the future.
We have a few things planned that are being discussed or already being worked on. We would like to get your feedback on what you would like to see going into 2016.
Soul Contracts - Character Trading
One of the most common things that I get asked is to help middle man trades involving characters. This is very time consuming because we manually verify both players to make sure they are the real owners and then manually transfer them. Since this is a manual process, I'm the only person who has the ability to do it and nobody can trade without contacting me first.
The Item Market has been a success, people use it every day and over 123,000 listings have been created this year. We are working on a way to allow players to trade characters in-game using the trade window for any items they want in return. There will be a way to verify yourself automatically before you create the trade to prevent account sharers from losing their characters. We hope to introduce this system soon.
Guild Battle Royale
In order to encourage guilds to fight each other, we are looking to implement a new system that will create automatic tournaments every week to fight over a prize and a Guild Castle. At a specific time and day every week you will be able to register your guild to enter the tournament if enough players are online. After the tournament begins you will be able to teleport to a new zone and fight together against other guilds. Reduced AOE damage and player limits can be added. There will be a unique way of handling score that will make players which die a lot worth less score and higher levels that don't die will be worth more. We can also consider things like automatically scaling players equipment, level or health if they are too high or low level to participate. This would make every tournament completely fair because nobody would have a big (or any) advantage.
We hope to get your input, nothing is final yet and it's still in the planning stages. If this is something you would like to see then let us know!
We hope everybody has a Merry Christmas and a happy new year! There is a new npc in Thais Depot named Messenger of Santa thats selling Christmas Decoration items. As a gift to everybody we are giving 14 days of free VIP! Enjoy the increased experience, skill rates and magic find bonus while trying out the new hunting zone and quests.
