Cysero | Tuesday, June 6, 2017

The war is over! Wrythion and his dragon army have been defeated (and Dragonlord Talyn is displeased). The forces of evil were driven off and not a single life was lost... but our beloved home was burned to the ground.

Not to worry! Warlic and Cysero called in a favor from the Mistress of Time... the Chronomancer known as Sora To Hoshi. She and other Chronomancers used their time magic to build a time bubble around the husk of old Battleon while inside Cysero and Warlic used their combined magic to rebuild town. Inside the time bubble it took the magi weeks to reconstruct Battleon but outside only moments passed and a new, better Battleon seemingly appeared in an instant!

The war has ended but Roland will stick around in Battleon until at least next Tuesday in case you have any crafting that you'd like to finish up.

Once again, NONE of the Battleon Defender items are rare so if you didn't get them all don't stress out. Roland and the Battle Defenders will return when Battleon is again under attack and they are needed.

They say you one get one chance at a first impression. Unless your burn your village down and rebuild it with magic!

At first glance, it might look like we just rearranged some buildings but the reborn Battleon is much more than that.

As soon as you enter, you will notice a new small quest chain that picks up the story where the intro (which we also remade) left off, guiding brand new players through town and getting them out into Greenguard and the rest of Lore, and we even give them a couple of new beginner items!

We've moved quite a lot of items off under-explored shops and into Cysero's shop plus a few new items. They only reach level 5 for now but Battleon is the first place you go after the intro and we really focused on the new player experience when rebuilding it.

You'll notice some old friends now live in Battleon...

... as well as some new faces with new shops and a new quest or two. Even villagers walking around breathing life into what was a pretty lonely town before.

You should look around carefully. We've hidden lots of interesting pop-ups and fun secrets in Battleon.

We've also given a few of the NPCs some more lively dialogues instead of flat text blocks to read... and this is only the beginning!

  • Barber Shop interior with new hairstyles, beards and locks to help customize your character!
  • Bank Interior with new NPCs and Quests!
  • The long awaited Museum!
  • A renovated Yulgar's Inn!
  • Quest Chains for each of the shops!
  • The Grave Encounter!
  • The Alls Well That Ends Well Sewer adventure!
  • and More!

We are very proud of new Battleon and know that you will find the new version of Battleon to be a warmer, friendlier and more interesting place to hang out and explore!

I'm starting to see some similarities between Battleon's AQ3D and AQ, which is a good thing. They also brought back the Darkest Night sword which was available back in closed beta. I guess I'm not the only one whose going to run around with the sword now. If that's any indication, the staff might bring the other closed beta items into the game.

**Swipes a Radioactive Claw** And voila its been tagged! Thanks for formatting the Design Notes, LouisCyphere! ~Kokujoe_AK

I think I would have enjoyed it more if they hadn't played the magic card and the rebuild had been done slowly over one or two updates with important buildings that offer quests being prioritized.
