Title: Updates September 3rd 2019 - Invention, Hardmode Bosses and HD Textures!
Post by: Thomy on September 03, 2019, 07:26:12 am
Hey guys,

I am proud to present you our first and unique new skill: Invention. We've had many discussions about the game's economy and how difficult it is to maintain prices for item drops. The skill aims to solve that problem by introduces a sink for most unique boss drops. You can read more in the dedicated Invention section below. There's also an initial implementation start of Activity Hiscores to boost competition for boss runs, minigames, etc. As well as a lot of fixes and engine improvements. You're now also able to select higher quality textures with 0 performance impact.

New skill: Invention
Our new skill, Invention, consists of 2 basic concepts: Deconstructing items gives you energies that can be transformed into either degradeable auras or equipment upgrades. You can train the Invention skill wherever you want as long as you own an Invention Energy Box. It can be obtained by having a chat with Manglethorp, who can be found south of the Grand Exchange. Click on the Invention skill and you will get a map marker.
We also already prepared the wiki entry for Invention: https://emps-world.net/wiki/Invention
Not every item in the game can be deconstructed, only those found within the Invention skilling interface or on the wiki page. I have plans for more energy types and upgrades in the future.

Oh yeah... and here's the skillcape emote nobody has seen yet: ;)

God Wars Dungeon Hardmodes
There's now hardmodes for bosses in the GWD: General Graardor, Kree'arra, K'ril Tsutsaroth and Commander Zilyana. The fight is more intense and aimed at a group of 3 people. You will probably require a dedicated tank because some mechanics will deal a lot of unblockable or difficult to block damage. Fighting hardmode gives every participant a 3% chance for a new and unique drop: Artefacts. Those are needed to upgrade GWD equipment via the Invention skill. The other drops remain the same and will reward the top 3 damage dealers.

Here's a picture of the Zilyana hardmode fight.

Activity Highscores
I've implemented a system in-game that tracks completion time for boss instances and stores every completion. The completion time is transformed into a score value and will be listed as highscores on the homepage. I am still working on visualization for the homepage and need some test data. You can already see your score when clearing a boss instance but it is not yet compared with others. My aim is to create weekly and monthly top players for several categories with unique reward containers.

Engine fixes / changes:
Thanks to everyone who has tested the Invention skill in our test world and gave feedback. It has taken quite some time to design and create a custom skill from scratch. I hope you'll enjoy a new skill and aren't too sad about all max and completionist capes being unequipped. ;)

All the best,
Thomy




Further fixes (September 4th):

i think in rs3 and emps invention xp/ph rates same. with this skill is really something wrong.
too slow xp rates and useless skill.

who da hell would destroy demon weapon, nex armour piece, spirit shield for demon slayer aura witch one haves 7500 charges.
waste of ~150m for ~100k xp in 30 mins.

invention xp should be increased 5-10 times then it will makes sence.
no jokes i lost motivation to play this game with such brain damaged update, if this not getting fix im quiting.
