Christmas Webshop Items and Dura World Editor Program

 

Greetings Durans,


With the Holidays and the memory of them winding down we are going to remove Holiday Items from the Webshop as they are Seasonal Options; they will be again available next year. They will be removed tommorrow, January 17th.


Also...

Do you want to help create the World of Dura?

During our time developing Dura there was one thing we came across that we long ago forgot and yet since learning it anew we cannot let it go. As the evidence below will show not only in the beginning did Players create the majority of the Game but they created the best parts that we all love.

We fundamentally believe that so much of what made the original game special was feelings of community and an inherent love to explore a world infused with charm and flavor, brewed from an endless supply of imaginations. Even the parts of the game that were not created by Players in the Early Days were suggested and proposed by Players.

Therefore today, we are inviting anyone who wants to volunteer to be an Editor and Storyteller for Dura for the Dura World Editor program. The guidelines and rules will come soon enough in the invitation itself but at bottom the meaning is: Anyone who wants to can Create the World of Dura. We are going to supply you with Easy-To-Use Tools that are no harder to setup than Dura's Own Client. With these tools, you, with complete freedom and without any limitation can create anything for the world of Dura: add, expand, change, alter the Map. Cities, Wildernesses, Dungeons, Caves, Rivers, Valleys, Mountains, Monsters, NPCs, Raids, Ambushes, Quests, Traps, and on and on. More will be explained but to make sure we do not frighten anyone - all submissions will of course be open to our final decision if they enter the game or not, but we have nothing but hope that each submission will be accepted.

Invitation: https://discord.gg/x2jZvN58SZ   &    World Editor Software

Happy Holidays & Best Wishes!

It's the Holidays, a time for being thankful and giving back. With the end of the year approaching Dura reflects on its first month being alive and we couldn't be happier with how things are going or more grateful.

 

 

 

Our community grows everyday with more and more people exploring the lands of Dura and discovering its mysteries. And this is only the beginning, there is so much that awaits our adventurers: new stories, new dungeons and realms, new monsters, new quests, challenges, journeys, and never ending plans for the future -- we're so excited to see it unfold. In gratitude we'd like to give everyone who's ever made a character on Dura 7 Days of Free Premium. Thank You!

Happy Holidays!

 

Santa Claus will see you in your local town soon!

New System! Changes! Bug Fixes!

Today's Server Save marks many important changes.

 

The largest and most crucial change will be the introduction of a new System called "Over Experienced." As stated before Dura is founded on principles of challenge and strategy, and on the opposite side trying to constantly distant itself from broken or backward mechanics with the goal that by pursuing the first and preventing the later Dura will give players the most important thing: Fun.

Over the past few weeks many players may have noticed that characters of even level 30, 40, and 50, as on many other Old School 7.4s, hunt the same Monsters as level 10s and 15s. We think this is against the spirit of the game and see it as our fault on the development side because when breaking down the numbers employing this strategy, i.e. hunting minotaurs at level 50 is with little exception the best strategy.

This is not the gameplay we want to cultivate, we think as a character levels up what he does should also change and rise. By implementing Over Experienced it will free these spawns for lower levels as well as open up the map to a wider array of spawns for mid and high levels as they will not feel forced to do something that yields the greatest profit while also decent experience; and lastly it will allow players to actually have fun and challenge themselves as opposed to feeling forced to do something that is well beyond them because game-economy dictate it is best. It is also our belief it will help balance vocations as well as incentivize team play.

The System works as follows: Starting at level 30 all Monsters that give 50 experience or less will give 3% less loot every single level. This means at level 35 you will receive 85% of Loot from Monsters, that is for example from a Minotaur, Orc Warrior, Rotworm etc. At level 40 you will receive 70% of the normal 100% loot. This will go all the way to level 55 where you will receive only 25% of the original 100% of Loot for Monsters less than 50 Experience.

Starting at level 55 all Monsters that give 85 experience or less will give 3% less loot every single level. This means monsters like Minotaur Archers, Dwarf Soldiers, Ghouls etc will give only 25% of Original Loot by level 80. You will never receive less than 25% of Original Loot for either of the above.

We are doing this as our first measure of the Over Experienced System. In a less than a week we will be adding Exp as part of the System. Meaning as you gain levels past level 30 and 55 you will also receive less experience from these monsters.

We're calling this System "Over Experienced" because in Real Life consistently repeating the same action over and over after it's well beyond your skill set would not yield any worthwhile meaning or value to the Person; it follows on a logical basis how a Strong Hero would really become that much stronger by "killing boars".

 

In other Notes these changes as well are occurring today in Dura:

u Kills to Red Skull has been changed from 4 to 3.

u Kills to Outlaw has been changed from 12 to 6.

u Outlaw Duration has been changed from a 30 day punishment to a 15 day punishment.

u Fire Immunity for certain monsters has been changed to various Resistance %'s.

 

As well some key bug-fixes:

u As true to 7.4 from now on all Single-Target-Runes, eg SD and HMM, will hit ALL Players/Creatures on Stack instead of only the Player/Creature most recently on Stack.

u Door Stack mechanics will now work.

u The Door-Fire Bug has now also been fixed.

 

Looking forward to everyone's feedback! Many of these changes and fixes would not have happened without it!
