  6. Name colors can now be purchased from the Cowbell Store. They can be changed in your Settings.

Rebalancing:

  1. Combat ability rework:

    • Abilities now have cast time. Magic abilities tend to have longer cast time than ranged or melee abilities.
    • Ability damage has been increased to account for the cast time.
    • Water Strike and Fireball no longer have a cooldown, so they can effectively replace magic auto attacks.
    • Buff abilities have had their duration increased to 20s, but effectiveness slightly decreased.
    • Most abilities have had their MP cost increased to balance around the increased damage and less frequent usage due to cast time.
    • If multiple abilities are available to be used, they will be cast in the order you have them set on your ability bar. Make sure to put Water Strike or Fireball in the last position or abilities after them will never get used.
  2. Magic rework:

    • Magic has been difficult to balance due to it having 100% accuracy. This was evident in the fact that both magic-based players and monsters deal significantly more damage than their ranged and melee counterparts.
    • Accuracy and evasion for magic have now been added. Magic Accuracy is based on your magic level. Magic evasion is based on the average of your defense and ranged levels. Negative magic damage on melee and ranged equipment have been changed to negative magic accuracy instead.
    • Elemental resistances are greatly reduced in most locations where they existed, now that it's no longer the only source of elemental damage mitigation.
  3. XP from dealing damage adjusted:

    • Rationale - Higher level monsters tend to have much higher damage mitigation, resulting in a significant reduction in XP rates. To encourage players to fight higher level monsters without feeling like they are losing out on a lot of XP, partial XP will be granted for mitigated damage.
    • When attacking, 35% of your damage that is mitigated by enemy armor, resistances, or evading will still count towards XP gains.
    • Base ratio for Attack, Power, Magic, and Ranged XP reduced to balance against the bonus XP from mitigated damage.
  4. Equipment adjustments:

    • Werewolf Slasher: increased accuracy and damage from 115% to 118%.
    • Tome of Healing, Tome of the Elements: added MP regen.
    • Snail Shell Helmet, Turtle Shell Plate Body, and Legs: reduced evasion, added tenacity.
    • Gator Vest: reduced evasion from 40% to 30%.

Bug Fix:

  1. Correctly compute active consumable slots when equipping/unequipping pouches.
  2. Allow patch notes notification badge to correctly disappear after view.
  3. Fix crushed gem tasks to assign a quantity of more than 1.

Guys stop bashing this saying its a Melvor idle clone. You know what else is similar the cosmic tidal wave of prestige tree games.
They put a lot of effort and care into this and made it, its own unique thing. also those in app purchases are small things theres no real P2W, check the conversion rates yourself if you dont believe me. there minimal and inconsequential.
they made a fun game inspired by Runescape with fun mechanics the goal isn't to watch absurd numbers increase or prestige countless times its to work towards those small grinding goals and enjoy working with other players and chatting while you enjoy the game and showoff.

Geniune question from a long time player of the latter, are there any major differences between this and melvor? Besides in app purchases and a marketplace/chat?

developer response: The main difference is that it's multiplayer. currently such features are limited to market, chat, leaderboard. There will be more social and community features added in the near future. As for other parts of the game, while the overall mechanics can feel similar to melvor, there are parts that are fairly different, including combat and the enhancing skill. Both games have strong inspirations from runescape and is designed to be idle, so it's not surprising to feel very similar. Personally I think the community aspect is a big bonus and main selling point, but people may have different preferences on multiplayer.

A cool start, though I think the game flow is a bit unbalanced currently. A lot of resources have niche uses, combat doesn't seem to reward anything useful for the first few hours of gameplay, and enhancing (and money by extension, which seems to only be usable here) is too expensive and risky for how little it rewards.
