Legendary Sidhe of Order

Greetings all,

As you may be aware Nemesis Set was updated this week, complete with new mastercraft abilities and a full set bonus! You may also be aware that the Backlash status that the armor bestows upon you could cause the game to crash when used against packs. both the standard packs (Something (2)/Something (3)/Something (4)) and the special packs (like Zadd the Golem Builder). After 2 days of coding (by me) and testing (by Kamui and InMediaRes) this bug has been squashed.

However thats not really what these design notes are about, while I was updating the packs to fix this , I saw an opportunity to update many of the graphics of the special packs (including some new art for Zadd thanks to ReverendWyrm and Galanoth) and to add some special stuff to certain of the special packs.

Some hints on the special stuff to look out for:

Drakel War Party & Drakel Militia Group: This group fears no foe while the Drakel Destroyer stands because they have (unlimited) reserves!

Zadd the Golem Builder: While Zadd has a few more Golems than most reinforcing packs, the reinforcements can be stopped before they occur if you defeat Zadd! However this is not as easy as it seems because the Golem master has a trick up his sleeve.

Undead War Party: As before the exact composition of the War Party varies but now the variations in pack members will have a noticeable effect on the packs HP.

Night of 100 Ninja: As some of you doubtless remember when the Night of 100 Ninja debuted, the Kunoichi appearing on the field would do very strange things to the packs HP, including fully healing it! After a bit of fiddling, her entry now has a similar effect but in a more controlled way! Her presence reinvigorates all the Undead Ninja still standing when she enters and motivates any Undead Ninja hanging back to promptly replace their fallen compatriots!

There's also been a general update to reinforcing packs that should adjust their Maximum HP and current HP more appropriately than it has in the past.

We look forward to your discussion and comments in the discussion thread

Some hints on where to find some of these things and and a couple of new versions:

There's now a level 100 Ancient Undead War Party and a level 128 The Golem Maker in RA (and the appropriate Yonders).

There's a Night of 100 Ninja challenge battle in the Pirate Class Quest.

The Drakel Militia Group should I believe still be encouterable in Yonder, even at the top of the level range I think.
