Tomix, in addition on working on refreshed NPCs for Chapter 3, is still working steadily on Pyromancer! This week he has a preview of some of the skill animations!
Pyromancer will have mostly ranged attacks, rather than melee. What other kinds of skill animations would you guys like to see?
This Friday will be the finale of Chapter 2 and the merging of The Professor and Wargoth! This titanic fight will include your dragon (even for free players!) so, if you don't have it yet, make sure to go see Twilly and get them hatched. Ghost is hoping you'll see things in a new perspective with this boss fight!

A now a word from Verlyrus!
Hi there! Verlyrus here with an update on Pyromancer! With all the animations done, it’s time to get theskills going. Following Tomix’s vision of the class, Pyromancer is a class sure to set your foes ablaze!You’ll be able to use the entanglement of fire and magic to wreak havoc on your enemies, as well as to protect yourself.
Here’s a preview of one of Pyromancer’s skills (numbers are subject to change!):
- Hit 1 steals health equal to the damage done
- Hit 2 applies the Burned debuff, reducing your opponent’s resistance to fire by 25 for 5 turns
- Hit 3 applies the Feared debuff, stunning your opponent’s for their next turn
- Hit 4 applies the Cursed debuff, reducing your opponent’s damage by 25% for 5 turns
Like any fire, Pyromancer takes a lot to extinguish. Until they stomp out every last ember, you might still have a trick up your sleeve to return from the ashes!
The class is being poked at right now for more balanced numbers and some tricky skill functionality. With any luck, you won’t explode* when you equip it!
*Or get vaporized, turned to ashes, turned into Ash, sucked into an alternate dimension, deep fried, deep fried (extra crispy), compressed into a little ball, turned inside out, trapped in a box, etc. Taking the necessary precautions against these sorts of things can be very time consuming!

More of Surewould is now open to explore! Make your way through the random Surewould Forest dungeon, or explore the depths of the Forest Cave! There's also something extremely strange happening at the old Linken Mill!
The Travel Gryphon has also returned in Book 3 Falconreach! You can now make your way to the beginnings of the Elemental Foothills and see what happened at Warlic's Tent! A fiery new barber has also set up shop by Mount Shining Star but, anything less than a pyromancer will be too flammable for his hot styles!

This week we dug through all our old holiday folders and managed to cobble together a.... Thankstaking Storybook! Yay! You can go back and fight the Techno-Turkey Terror and the Rawrgobble or get shrunken down and explore a particularly giant feast! Have fun and enjoy!
This year for Thankstaking, two new M.O.P. members are guarding Oishii's secret instructions for cooking the feast! Well, not really instructions... but, you'll see. I really hope that nothing goes wrong 'cause then you guys would probably have to fight waves and waves of stuff.... ;)

This week is a preview of the Pyromancer-only Barber, Yonathan! You'll be able to find this fiery artist in his distinctive, incombustible red tent (specific location to still be determined).
Tomix is working on finishing up the special, Pyromancer hairstyles for you guys now!
Verlyrus is awesome and has fixed a few lingering bugs with ChronoCorrupter!
Space bomb now correctly applies debuff to bonus.
Fast Forward should now have a proper cooldown.
If there are any further bugs, please PM them to Verlyrus on the forums! Thank you, guys!

Pyromancer is now available from Cysero's Superstore of Savings, which means we'll soon have a new Pyromancer-only barber setting up shop somewhere in Lore! Tomix wants you guys to take screenies of your favorite hair-dos to help him decide which ones he wants to set aflame!

Another sneak preview from Tomix! Ruuuuuunning kitties for tomorrows release!
Verlyrus has made another small coding update to Pyromancer!
Tuesday, November 6, 2012
We have a great new TwT this week! Tomix has been working on the Book 3 version of Ravenloss and here's a preview of the walkaround. You can click on the edges of movie and explore a bit!
We're still a ways off from the new version of Ravenloss being live in game, but we will be catching up with Tomix, Riadne and more in Book 3!
The final quest for this years Mogloween will be this Friday, where you'll be able to help some four footed friends find their way back to Croft. Some of the 2012 Mogloween masks will also go on sale in Cysero's Superstore, as well!
Tomix is also working on the final animation issues with Pyromancer but Cysero should have some in stock on Friday (as long as nothing goes boooom). We do need to decide where the new fiery Pyromancer barber will be, too. If you were an expert in styling follicular flames where would you set up shop in Lore?

From the Kensai:
It’s getting to be that time of the year again… when the walls between our world and the next are said to be their thinnest… When ghouls and ghosts emerge from the shadows to give a scare… it’s a time of year that has its own special magic. The air is beginning to get cooler, the days grow shorter, and the nights grow longer. It’s a great time to be going to the Necropolis! The MOP have come to help, and they brought some new trainees with them! The skilled archer; DeathArrows, the fierce warrior known as The Baron, and of course, the bold BraveSirRobin have come along to help investigate the goings on. It’s their task to scout the Necropolis ahead of you and find out where Sally and Bubbles are, and see if they can find out what nefarious plot is afoot.
It’s always a bit of a challenge to capture all the aspects of a player that they envision for themselves. We have to infer a lot of things when we want to make it a surprise, like we did this year. Nobody knew who was picked to go in game. They were chosen for reasons that varied… from the potential for a few good jokes and a spoof, to the visual gag that some forum terminology has inspired. Some liberties had to be taken for the sake of design and story, but we tried to capture as much of the essence of the players in question as possible.
The confrontation! What have Sally and Bubble done? This monster needs to be taken down a peg, and you’re just the hero to do it.
Also; Poor M.O.P.! Nothing ever seems to go right! Now they are stuck having to trek back to Croft and hope to reach the Cauldron Sisters before the spells have been cast! Join them as they wander through the woods on their way to safety and possible help.
* Due to the time that it took to get this all out to you, the event will be left in game for an additional week to give you plenty of time to trick or treat for your masks!
You'll see some new MOP recruits this week as well.... thier awesome helms would be awesome to get... for CANDY. Maybe, just possibly... we can be persuaded!
Verlyrus has made a few updates to Pyromancer as well!
-Made mana costs consistent
-Altered some cooldowns
-Rebirth retains cooldown between battles
-Minor damage tweaks
The wedding shop will only be available for one more week!

Testing has begun for Pyromancer!
Once the armor has been tested by players with Dragon Amulets, debugged and finally rebalanced, it will be available from Cysero in the Superstore of Savings!
Please do NOT attempt to save the class, it WILL bug out your account.

The final skills for Pyromancer are done! After Tomix gets the female version of the armor animated, it'll be time to send the fiery armors onto Rolith and Verlyrus for coding!
Jemini has been hard at work making lovely new fishies for Deep Water Fishing! Now... how do you guys suppose we'll get you to deep water to get them?

Tomix has been working hard on getting Pyromancer done for you guys and he has a crazy amount of new skills for you to check out this week!
Oh noes, Ghost's main computer went BOOM! So those pirates that were going to help clear the docks on Friday are going to be delayed slightly! No worries, though, I have a good source that they're at least sending a stealthy pirate through (definitely NOT a stinky ninja) tomorrow that will have special weapons to help get heroes in town armed and ready.
When the Lorian Gryphon Express delivers its mail this Friday to Ash though, he should get a special note for you.... Are you ready to help clean up the mean streets of nighttime Falconreach?
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
This week Tomix has more new pyromancer skills to preview! Soon Rolith and Verlyrus will get their hands on this awesome armor!
Back to School Shop
Tomorrow will also have a new Back to School DC shop button in the Book of Lore! This shop will only be up for a limited time and will poof back into the ether on 19th. So make sure to check out the gorgeous good scythe weapon (which is still in progress!) from Tomix that will be inside the shop!

Every Pyromancer needs a spell book filled with the fiery words of Fiamme's realm! Tomix has upgraded the best-selling monster cookbook, the Pyronomicon (second edition, of course), for your future Pyromancers to use!
Warlic's zone has been redone! Dracelix has beautified the forest around Warlic's Tent and Ghost has provided music for the area! Nythera has also graciously decided to offer access to the last few quests of her chain again. Leaving the zone will also put you on the correct part of the walkaround north of Falconreach now!
