UPDATED: V&H's Sugarsweet Summit, NOW LIVE!

V&H Presents:
SUGARSWEET SUMMIT

Image


After some (let's be honest here) unexplained delays, the much anticipated Valentines event zone is set to release early this coming week. I can only assume that having put the work into it, the Mad Otter team would rather get this new zone up late, as opposed to sitting on it for another year before giving us the opportunity to enjoy it.
Ah well. Better late than... forever, eh?

The Sugarsweet Summit zone will move onto test servers as early as this morning, and if all goes well, will be in-game for your enjoyment the first part of this coming week. Good luck with that, you Mad Otters, you. We look forward to exploring this new holiday themed zone together.

I do not know if the promised bug fix patch will be included with this update, but will be sure to keep you informed as that information comes available.

UPDATE: 02-19-2015

The anticipated bug fix and improvements patch has been combined with the event zone patch. It is being installed at this time, and should be live by the time most of you see this post.
Patch is now live. Come on in!
Read on for the full, English Patch-notes, as posted by Martin, on the Official V&H forums.






English Patchnotes 2.40.4 - Thursday February 19 2015

Full Release Notes
May you all have visions of sugar-plums dancing in your heads!

This patch has a new holiday event zone, "Sugarsweet Summit", a new outfit, bug fixes, and a few improvements.

Improvements:

  • Sugarsweet Summit, a new event zone, is up now.
  • Improved Advanced Lighting so it takes up less memory, which should hopefully make it faster and less prone to crashes. (With Advanced Lighting on, in Ardent this saves about 200 Megs!)
  • Removed the "Friend All" pop up that occurs when moving into a village (due to popular request).
  • Spirit Regeneration when out of combat is a little slower than before.
  • Changed Fishing and Bug Collecting so they take nearly the same amount of time to do as Mining and Plants. (hopefully) reduced the time to pet and feed ranching animals (untested).
  • The effects section on tooltips for loot and gatherables will now be smaller, but will expand after hover for a second or two. This should make tooltips for gatherables less annoying when gathering many items.
  • Monsters and players using click-to-move are better now at avoiding obstacles.
  • We made the coin loot stacks a little more visible.
  • Boosted the drop rate of the Pyrrick Acorn.




Bug Fixes

  • Hopefully fixed a gnogmentation bug causing certain items to be shown as empty, even though they have talents attached.
  • Fixed underwater fog in advanced lighting mode.
  • Cleaned up some boss exclamations
  • Made friendlies so they cannot enter Aegis.
  • Hopefully fixed bug causing players to get stuck in a weird "dead" state requiring a relog to fix.
  • Hopefully fixed the cause of many cases of getting permanently stuck at 0% loading in a zone.
  • Hopefully fixed a very rare bug that could prevent mail from being viewed.
  • Fixed: Players can't remove other players from friends list nor guild if their name contains an umlaut ( ä, ü, and ö )
  • Fixed: blocking with mods was not working correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where a player could close the game while teleporting, and effectively cancel the teleport.
  • Fixed: /cinfo and /kick aren't working with names with ä,ü,ö,ß


* See below for the original post, containing specifics for the new holiday zone, Sugarsweet Summit.

A deliciously intoxicating special event zone is soon to be arriving in Ardent!

Sugarsweet Summit!

Players, many clad in shiny new cupid wings, but armed with the sturdiest of weapons, will be exploring the pink hills and rolling glens of Sugarsweet Summit -- a place where frighteningly plump ne’er-do-wells lurk inside of candy-coated caverns and are ready to pounce on all who disturb their feeding frenzies.

Sugarsweet Summit offers players of all levels the chance to reap vast rewards and goodies. For the combat inclined, 6 formidable Elder Bosses await. Be warned though, these challenging foes are not for the faint of heart and will surely require a large party of heroes to take them down. And for our craft-loving players, the Summit offers much to do in the way of multiple daily quests, not to mention the return of our beloved February friends, Valentino and Valentina.

What else does Sugarsweet Summit possess? (Pssst! Lolly-Grams anyone?) Here’s just a few of the things this delightful zone will have to offer:

  • An event-themed weapon pack with a brand new special cosmetic feat
  • 5 brand new outfits in the item shop, and 3 special outfits in the event zone only
  • Cupid Wings
  • New feature: Lolly-Grams! Create a lolly gram with a special custom note, and send it to your friend with a gift attached
  • New feature: ‘Echo Bounty.’ Killing an elder boss on Sugarsweet Summit gives you great rewards once per day. In addition, players can kill the boss again for an echo bounty reward. Echo bounty rewards can be earned any number of times per day.
  • Free goodies everywhere!



Get ready to swoon and slay, gorge on goodies, and most of all, enjoy the company of your friends in this fun-filled event zone. See you all soon in Sugarsweet Summit!





While I think it's a shame this update could not make it in time for the actual holiday, I am glad the Mad Otter team decided to allow us the opportunity to enjoy it now, as opposed to having to wait another year. I have no information at this time to indicate how long this zone will be in-game, but I'm sure it will linger long enough to give us all an opportunity to explore it to its fullest.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
