Re: The Reign of the Lords [release 8.2.0]

Postby The_Gnat » July 14th, 2017, 12:38 am

NEW RELEASE 8.2.0 for 1.13 & 1.12


Yes you read it correctly it says 8.2.0. 8) As of now i have changed the naming convention for the Reign of the Lords versions. It now is: [num factions].[major releases].[minor releases].[bug fixes]

NOTE: in this release MANY units have been renamed therefore i do not recommend updating if you are in the middle of a campaign as the change of id's may cause issues.

In other news this massive :D new update includes dozens of new high level units: The Light Rider, The Elvish Immortal, The Elvish High King, The Spirit of Flame, The Devourer, The Abaddon, The Royal Dragonier, The Dragon Bane, The Dwarvish Fortressor, The High Custodian, The Orcish Night Purger, The Naga Ultimitar, The Saurian Doomsayer, The Werewolf Destrier, The Enchanted Mountain, The Goblin Invader, The Arch Gryphon, The Dwarvish Mammoth Lord, The Black Guard, The Nemesis, The Executioner.

Along with that here is the full changelog:

Code: Select all
(Version 8.2.0) - First and foremostly you will notice the version number has jumped massively. The new system consists of #Number of Factions // #Major releases // #Minor releases // #Bug fix releases. For example 8.2.0 is the 2nd major release since the Reign of the Lords has had 8 factions.

The primary focus of this update was three fold #1 renaming units  #2 adding many new units #3 fixes images. With that in mind i plan on releasing another release to update the portraits further, but that will not come for some time.

After sitting and thinking for a long time i renamed many units. This is in preperation for adding level 5 units as upgrades for the majority of them. I plan on adding level 5 units for everyone who is not a unique specialist.

   - (Outlaw) Exterminator -> Eliminator
   - Elvish Wayfarer [removed]
   - Elvish Infiltrator -> Elvish Wayfarer (now advances from Elvish Prowler)
   - Collosal Flare -> Spirit of Flame

Are all bolas suppose to be ranged? Because I found a unit from this add-one melee bolas, it was also pierce instead of impact. I'm sure it was Elvish Infiltrator or the Elvish Vanquisher. Also in my opinion the battle druid and battle enchantress should have their saber attack do a little more damage. Also thanks for the warning for the update of the add-on.

Another possible bug or two is that both the reaver and fallen units have maces with blade as the attack type, shouldn't it be impact? Also the barrow rider has 92 health and then both of the advancements have 50 and 52 health. Hope this helps. :D

In campaigns the saurian Soothsayer and the saurian Oracle have what I believe to be the wrong advancements, the normal Oracle turns into the Sage which has heals 12 hp. The Soothsayer turns into the Clairvoyant which is attack instead of support. Also the Bone Marauder has no animation for some reason. :| Does the Ancient Wose Shaman suppose to advance to the Arch Wose Shaman? And is the Luminary of Fire Prophet of Fire suppose to have no health increase? Cause they don't. Hope this helps you find bugs. :)

What is the point of having submerge on a unit when he can't go in deep water? The saurian striker has the submerge ability and can't go in deep water. Also the Elvish majestic an immortal both have 5 movement points (MP) when the level 3 unit has 6 MP, and just in my opinion the Elvish immortal should have blade as his melee weapon or have another melee attack.

Hmm.... that is very pointless ;) i will change it so that he instead has a swamp hide ability.

Also the Elvish majestic an immortal both have 5 movement points (MP) when the level 3 unit has 6 MP, and just in my opinion the Elvish immortal should have blade as his melee weapon or have another melee attack.


Okay i will increase their movement and give the immortal an alternate blade sword attack! It is never good to take away a weapon (or weapon type like blade) when a unit advances because then it may be a disadvantage in some circumstances. And it would be ridiculous to have a player try to Not advance a unit because of something like this.

Another unit that comes to mind when i think of this is the Dwarvish Dragon Bane, he changes from blade melee to impact melee because he no longer holds a dagger, do you think he should also be given a blade attack at level 5? If so i could add some sort of mechanical claw?

Yes I believe that the dragon bane should have the blade attack, maybe a chainsaw of some sort, yet keep the crush attack and put stun as a possible ability so it has more use. The flame caster also kind of got this going as well, his melee attack does 2 less damage than the level 3 dragon guard, you could put the after burn on his knife or something. Just asking, is the Drake noble suppose to be level 3? The flame heart is also level 3 and advances to him, the drake noble is also a little bit stronger and has another attack. Also doesn't the grand Admiral (Merman faction) sound like it should have leadership as an ability? Also the Merman praetor should probably have a little more health and he doesn't have any attack increase from his advancement. :augh:

Okay i will make that change for the Dragon Bane. What i was trying to do for the Flamecaster was give him a weaker melee in exchange for the flame theme and a vastly changed ranged weapon (2 strikes instead of the traditional thunderguard 1), but i agree it is too weak, so i will add afterburn.

Also the Drake Noble is supposed to be a level 3 who advances from the Drake Flare i will fix it in the next update.

I considered giving the Grand Admiral leadership but do you think that would be okay considering no one else in his unit line has leadership? Perhaps instead i will give him the inspire ability.

As for the Merman Praetor that was just a mistake ;)

Thank you for this feedback!

Yes I think inspire would be better, but the Merfolk aren't currently in a faction yet are they? The crusader and the high Templar are both have woodland as their movement type, so that means they have 70% on forest, this is a little unfair in my onion. Also the apocalypse rider has 8 MP instead of 7 MP which is what the grand knight has, also dragon rider has no increase in attack and just get another attack. Is that suppose to be like that? And also just a idea you could give one of the merman/maid a storm trident, it's just an idea.

@ LordLewis - No merfolk have not been added yet because they can not fill a faction of their own (due to being almost entirely water based movement creatures) and they don't really fit into the other factions i have made.

I will change the Crusader, High Templar and Apocalypse Rider to have a more balanced movement, thanks for noticing this!

As for the Dragon Rider i actually intended it to be like this because his range attack is significant and his as is the added movement, what do you think?
