Maybe, though personally I find javelins as a useful melee that works with a shield that uses agility. I won’t complain about a buff to javelins though.
For those in the console backwoods, would you please describe what Multi’s mod does to javelins?
Not as what to expect necessarily, but as an example of how it has been successfully altered elsewhere.
It changes the moveset, has off hand attacks so you can use two; Fc probably wouldnt go as far but multis mod is still fairly balanced against other weapons.
It’s the only reason I use javelins. I wanted to but I hate the move set for them and then found Multi’s mod. The move set adjustment also makes it so that heavy attacks don’t throw the javelin. Instead you charge it, like you would a bow heavy and rather than lose it, it depletes the durability.
a rework of religion sounds good and would be a good subject for the next “age” .
I fully agree that the current system of “murder x number of people and bring me their souls” just being extra copy & paste for everyone without distinction is maybe applicable to some gods (I’m looking at you Set) but to me as a follower of Mitra it looks more like a demon cult
Well, it’s the 12th. No sign of a teaser yet today, but I will remain hopeful for early next week. I don’t think they’ll put anything out on the weekend, but trying to nail down a specific date is a lot more difficult than the contents of the update.
Whatever the devs have in store for us, it coulld release in 24 days when the big bundle in the bazaar expires. Can’t remember if this was the case with the other chapters, if bazaar timers were indicative of the next update.
24 days is too soon for a major update with no teasers yet. If anything, they could be more focused on the alignment with twitch drops; that ends on June 11th. Given the gap for weekends, that’d put it in the week of 12-16th, and they don’t drop on Mondays or Fridays, so that narrows it even further to 13-15th
Why too soon? Wasn’t Funcom who stated that there will be a chapter every 3 months and a new age after 3 chapters? Seems very fitting to have a new age and chapter 1 on 6th of june. That would mean they keep their word.
Chaper 1 - 1st of Sept, Chapter 2 6th of Dec, Chapter 3 14th of March, looks like it’s a trend of 3 months and 1 week between chapters.
So it’s either ~20th of June or 6th of june when Golem Master bundle expires.
Hype cycle. The next update is a full Age, which is the most significant update we’ve had since 3.0 first dropped. If the next update was under a month away, they would have dropped teasers at least a week ago
Chapter 3 on a 3 month cycle would end June 15th which is plenty of time. Sorcery from announce to release was like a week and a month, and I dont expect as much hype for Age 2. Sorcery was the start of ages, the battlepass and the bazaar as well as perk and major stat changes. I don’t think Age 2, no matter how awesome, will match that in terms of game upheaval, so it can use a little less time for hype.
Chapter 3 dropped March 14th. The first teaser came Feburary 12th.
If they give a full 1 month for teasers, leading into a dev stream and testlive/pbc for a chapter; I imagine they would do the same, if not longer for a full Age. Even if Age 2 isn’t as hyped as the first Age, I would still expect a consistent level of hype on par with a chapter.
A day here or there is in the noise. There’s always that much uncertainty in planned release anyway. My money is on June 20 age 2 release with June 6 devstream/devkit/public beta. Plenty of time.
If this one recalls, and please be patient, this one is old and prone to flights of fancy, it was not 3 months, but rather lucky 13 weeks per chapter. As a soft target.
Furthermore, let’s all pretend Funcom isn’t want to play their cards so close to the chest that their hand knows how many nipple hairs are present.
But fine, let’s doom post instead.
There is no hype because there is no 2nd Age.
We haven’t heard anything because there is nothing to hear.
The Age of Amazons is the parachute plan to all move to portions of the Amazon basin that Norway owns and open a slash and burn cattle ranch. Fern Gully sequel coming in hot.
The new monetization failed and the game is now in it’s complete form. Good day sir! (Or Madame, or my Theydy, of Gentlethem).
Hopefully that last part is obvious jest?
I thought it was a plan for Tencent to buy a controlling stake in Amazon so they had the kitteh poo coffee market covered…
Funcom made new shirts for second Age, which means new logo, which means major update, which means aliens on the moon, which means… I’ll stop here. :))
They already added those several years ago
If I remember correctly, Age of sorcery was about 2 month from first hints on Twitter to full launch. Imo there is one global change in the game coming in my mind, that can hype as much, as Age of Sorcery - port game to UE5, but 2 month won’t be enough for this.
UPD: I’m not asking about UE5 update
