Here it is finally, the expansion we’ve been talking about for a while is finally coming very soon !
On Feb 15th, we’ll be the witnesses of some game changing features like new skills for old classes (it was about time) and TW cut into seasons.
I chose deliberatly to skip the new armor part because I can smell R10 from here… I really do hope I’m wrong about that.
New farmed gear will be a great addition though and will change from Nirvana. Gear wise, PWI is really starting to be a really diverse and full game, with lots of options to have the best gear possible.
Called PWI : Descent, players will be traveling to the distant realm of Morai to determine the source of a terrifying new threat. Players can expect new quests, gear, maps, and powerful new high-level skills.
This expansion will rise a new zone with new quests and stuff AND 2 new instances.
This new zone will be available to characters of level 95+ and accessible through a special teleporter in main cities.
Seasons of TW
Every 6 months, the TW map will reset and a champion will be named. This champion guild will be awarded prizes we aren’t aware of as yet.
This new reset procedure will allow more competitivity in battles and will prevent 1 guild to take over the whole map and not give a chance to smaller TW factions.
The only incovenient I can see in this is that we won’t really be able to see a dominant faction in 6 months…. But who knows !
An other thing is that people that are in big TW factions will have their week-ends full….
On this note, the TW landscape will be very changing and promises to become extremely interesting. PWInsider is willing to recruit any person that feels able to comment on TW every week on his/her server (1 commentator per server). Send your app to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you would be qualified for this role.
This sounds like a very interesting feature, yet looking like Sage/Demon choice. The good thing about this is the fact that following the order you choose, you’ll have access to different gear (yay for no R9 uniform anymore !).
There are really few infos about these Orders, but I know there will be 3 orders to choose from and that it will work a bit like a faction base, where you accumulate contribution to spend it on rare gear, pets, gems and skill books.
Hopefully, not Rank X….
Apparently, we should get gear more focused on PvP, which would be a good addition per se as the area the most affected by new OP gear is PvP.
Here, you can see the new armors that will be introduced : http://www.ecatomb.net/armor-night.php
Getting to level 105…
Quoting the official post : “Much of PWI:Descent’s new content is geared toward higher level players, so if you’re looking for a new angle in high-end PvP or a new path to 105, you’ll be very pleased with what you see come launch day.”
Can we expect some kind of official goons ?
What do you think about the TW seasons ?
Any bets on the new gear they will introduce ?
Thoughts about the new FF special high-levels ?
All in all, this expansion sounds promising !
