1. If affects opponent’s block chance, not yours.
2. You mean “Call Bunnies”? Only if you are using a gun, as it basically becomes “Big Bang”, and adds 15% to your total crit chance.
3. While your dex along with other crit bonuses will increases your overcrit bonus to a point, the maximum cap based on your non-dex crit bonuses (spells, profession, scoped guns). I am not giving out formulas, but it’s capped at 139.5% of non-crit damage for bosses, and slightly higher against non-boss based on your aim power meter.

Davo1219’s response is fairly accurate. There is no need to to ask the dev about every mechanic of the game, as they are not documented intentionally.

Twice now people on S2 have “timed” or used alts to do war…this time it was MSP….Look at guild description …used to build mystic as needed…someone was in there doing hells. not sure who, I was late to war…but this is now 2 in a row……thought that was banned? you aren’t allowed to creat your own mystic for war?

There are no current rules against players to intentionally build undefended mystics. However, if they build the last mystic using alt accounts and coordinate the start time of the war with the main accounts, so their main account gets to hit the undefended Mystic before other players, then it’s a violation of the game rule. This behavior is also strongly discouraged especially if doing so takes away the ability of a weaker guild to have a chance to build a Mystic, on the same level as intentionally blocking invasion bonuses from other guilds.

Topic: Dream World / 100GEM for you! if you help me

Intentionally collaboration in a competitive game mechanism would fall under “exploitation”, violating game rule #3 of our Term of Service. So if this actually happens, we probably will confiscate all the prizes then ban the player who came up with the brilliant idea.

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (new)

Actually for DW item tier and below it’s was changed up to 1/2 chance a while ago. For higher tier items we don’t do the same guarantee but follow the MB/FW rule instead and only give the 1/2 chance when it’s +3/enhanced/scoped/regen (1 level below extended). The reason for that is because the higher tiers are intended to be harder to obtain (esp Hell gears are designed to be coin drainages), and players going after those gears can farm MA fairly easily.

I just got a Positron Armor of Agility + 1. I believe it should be a guaranteed +3 with a 20% chance of extended, since that is the “best item available” for me at the moment.

The notes meant best item set. If you open MBs and you land on positron item on level 97, it’s not guaranteed to be at least a +3 with extend chance either. You would need to be level 100 for that before, but even level 100 don’t get that from MB/MA because they now get Devil items. I will update the notes to “item set” just to avoid confusion.

Topic: Dream World / New Ally Question

Each ally has 3 skills, first, second, third as displayed in their info as will and details/train dialog. Unless you are below 30% health when it’s your ally’s turn to attack (in which case game checks for heal skill first), the game will first check the proc rate of the third listed skill to see if it triggers and only checks the second skill if that one doesn’t proc. Both weaken and copy are always the 3rd skill so they are all the same.

For example, will Guardian use copy less than huntress because she has a heal spell as well. Same for Elf Princess/Gabriella.

Only if your HP falls below 30% of max does healing take over precedence. Otherwise the game check proc’s of third attack skill first (then second, then first). All pet’s copy base are the same at 50%. The Guardian does have the highest healing power and highest base block skill, so it’s a great ally for non-mage classes.

Atlantis/fallen/MW can last forever. Just lift caps after so long to avoid a stagnation (esp on weekdays).

A solid update (^_^)

We sort skipped the “after so long” part. We can’t increase the Mystic War Boss HP at this time either. We will revert the damage cap increase to MW bosses then.

This is probably caused by a rare but known bug/issue (that we haven’t figured out how to fix yet), if you don’t open the next gate before the server restarts. You get rolled back to the first of the set.

Topic: Dream World / H7-9 expansion feedback

The current shortcut key actually fires a “use” pet command for something that was saved in a browser cookie. Do have it swap without opening that screen actually takes some bit of more work and the hotkey was thrown in toward the end. We will remove the requirement for the ‘c’ key in the next update, but for now hopefully “z” and “c” is faster than “m” + mouse move/click + “c”.

Topic: Dream World / possible minor rollback to S1 onlines during 3am patch

We had a hard shutdown/crash during the patch on S1 at 3am server time, which may cause some players who were online to experience a minor rollback on their character. Those affected (a very small handful of players) were given 20 Gems as a compensation. Sorry, we will be more cautious the next time.

Should be caused by the same caching problem.

Topic: Dream World / H7-9 expansion feedback

The hotkeys are broken due to a cache issue. If you go to the home tab it should now force pickup the new hotkeys (not ally does require you to switch two premium allies twice first).

Each opponent is supposed to be fought only fought against once a day. This was missed from the patch for some reason, and will be patched in shortly.

We had Mystic Fallen. Somehow that got changed to a guild that doesn’t exist. Tried to get 101 stones, but that just put up another mystic. Our guild xp bonus went from 196—>193

Thought of downing bosses during a war, but didnt want to break the game when an 8th mystic being attempted to be put up.

Sorry, we were fixing a broken guild and accidentally screwed up Mystic Fallen due to bad copy & paste. It should be fixed now.

Topic: Dream World / costs and prices

Thanks for the feedback. The reason the coin reward become leveled at the top is because it’s the only way to slightly control the game economy. There really is no other places to spend coins other than Gate openings and misting (buying energy). Ever since we introduced crystals and sharing the game economy have spun out control – over 90% of the top players and game supporters stopped purchasing Gems but was still able to gather hundreds of Gems and trillions of coins every month, not to mention endless increase to stats. Because of lack of any shortage, as long as people are willing to keep grinding mobs, there have become no need to ever opening a gate with Gems, buy Gem refills, pay the Imp, or buy stats/MB. Other than some shortcuts and less grind, our “goodwill” supporters don’t have anything to buy with Gems if there is absolutely no shortage in the economy.

I am not saying that we regret making the changes that cause the game economy to go out of control, as they are the ones that helped to keep players interest in the past couple years while many new and better look games have spun into Kongregate. However, it’s time to rein things back in a little to prevent the game dying from a economical death. If players are demotivated simply because they have to choose between a chance to get better gears with ability to keep getting infinite increase in wealth, then it’s because we have setup the wrong expectation for far too long.

With that all said, the next expansion does have many gameplay improvements, and yes there will be a shortcut keep to tap between last used allies. I can’t say anything more at this moment, however.

Sorry folks, but the Easter event will not be unlimited for the reasons mentioned in my original reply. It will use the same mechanic as last year. I will check to see if can be started slightly earlier than Thursday this year.

It would be GREAT to enjoy this again, also with unlimited bunny encounters, of course ;)

Kingk, what do you think????

Things were quite different back 3 years ago. The max energy was much lower, mist loops were no where in sight, and quite few features weren’t available then such as crystals and sharing. Unfortunately while these changes helped to keep Dream World alive for the past 4+ years, they also made it impractical for us to hold unlimited events as you have suggested.

+1. also the fluid movement through the game is of paramount importance for me at least

Originally posted by Gatorfreak:

I also hope it’s nothing like the TW game, although I fear it will be. The card game in TW is the main reason I quit playing. It was too slow paced and cumbersome, but necessary to do in order to keep up and advance. A single “mini” game could last an hour, longer if you’re paired with lagging or inattentive players :/

For me, the draw to DW has always been the ability to play without any major time constraints. It’s great for playing while multitasking by allowing you to play for 10 minutes, get drawn away, then come back 15 minutes later without it being a big deal. Implementing a turn-based card game will ruin all that.

It will not be nearly as complicated as Time World’s War of Heroes. All the strategy will be in the team selection/placement and the battle will be short and automated. It’s similar the arena tournaments in Dragon Era, but with a bit more strategy/details.
