new map: matriarch's domain

Post by eggmceye » Mon Sep 30, 2013 3:48 pm

Matriarch's Domain
lvl250.png
authors
* CIA Assassin: terrain, story, scripting
* egg : spawners, wrapup, testing

location
23,32 on maeondir

notes
* aimed for around lvl 100-200 I suppose
* probably requires a party toward the end
* requires a grapple
* quests and npcs not yet done
* instance only - for technical / coding reasons (to do with the coloured fangs)

technical notes
* lots of new ideas in it
-- using split avs to make all variations of draconians
-- using tinted avs to make more variety of drac
-- lots of mob scaling - pretty much all of the enemies have startup scripts and custom stats
* dunno how long cia spent on it but I'm close to 15 hrs at least

please post feedback, likes, dislikes, bugs, etc

curious to know:
* what level required to solo it
* what level required to party it

Don't try it unless on your addy res stone char.

Haven't had time to explore it fully, but I'm really enjoying it so far! Great work guys! Love the new spells on the mobs.

I was able to solo it on my lvl 225 fighter. The section with the elites was a bit tough, and the Eternal Matriarch was a major pain with her 5 second AEP. Otherwise, its a nice little map. Looking forward to the quests.

On PD I was killed there killed by instakill trap (100k dmg) - it wasn't void, but definitely instakill.

Otherwise it's a very fun map - good job!

I don't remember any traps at all
(ps maybe sagitarius needs warning sign near the void trap)

He's talking about Macrodaemons Revenge when you're fighting the black dragon boss. You need to be hitting a mob to not get instant killed.

Ok my opinions of Matriarchs Domain,good map lay out really enjoyed it,now i know my chr. is almost maxed but mobs seemed really weak,plus the end boss just seemed bland w/o actuall reward. Good job though thanks for the extra fun.

Im going through the map right now. Loving the tweaks and the spawner additions. The split avs are amazing. SkeleDrag top with Skeleton Legs = coolest looking avatar ever. I kinda want it.


Here is what Ive come across so far in 30 minutes of light foreplay :heart: :
  • Treasure Room after blue is empty
    Picking up 1 fang gets "all fangs gotten" message
    double "than" in EM: Followers of the Path Book
    Only 1 part to EM? (Im going from others input)
    Very Easy. If I hadn't been AEP by EM I would have "soloed" at 272
    Don't have to fight all bosses ATM, just have to get the fangs
Todo on my end:
  • Rework lore to suit fangs not moonstones
    Read all books to look for more typos
Definite needed:
  • EM Difficulty boost, should be as hard if not harder than BQ.

Feature. Quest subplot.

@PD: you must finish off his shadows before you can take him on.

I'll send you the files, and you can use the new 'feature editor' app I made to make any changes to books.

Mobs are more for flavor and the mid level players to grind on a bit. They have been corrupted by the Matriarch so not as strong, keeps in line with lore. The bosses are the main focus (they were her champions afterall) of attention for beefs/nerfs.

Matriarch is in need of some roids, I can probably solo her with a FG and a GSH. that 5 second AEP = :bs: which is exactly what I wanted when making her.

@egg any chance of getting the second part to her fight added? Nerfed a tad of course.

@egg cool cool. That will help a lot. Im still stoked about those 50/50 avs. Great addition.

bugs:
  • multiple people pick up fangs on one run (wont have all 8 on one person) won't allow barrier to be dropped.
