Well you could do legend deeds without power requirements earlier maybe it was fix?

I think it would cause issues for the player at the end of the level perhaps, I’ll need to dig in to the revision further.

Dear FS,

Thanks for this map! And thank you for releasing it, even in the middle of this whole global pandemic situation with everybody working from home. It’s really appreciated! Was really looking forward to it, and I’m very happy to have to got to play it.

Completed it on Cata, and here’s my first thoughts (warning: might be spoiler-ish):

  • Love the athmosphere. It all works very well. Distinct from the other maps, properly creepy, and especially during the last fight. That bell tolling sound all the time, the explosion effects: It all works beautifully! Also, the zooming in bit before the last fight you made is pretty cool. The nostalgia factor on some bits was also real. Really great work altogether.

  • The last fight is quite hard. Tougher than the other Boss fights. He felt like a bit of a DPS check though, and some of us had to switch classes before we beat him. The swamping of enemies was also noteworthy. Love the whole phases bit though. You made the fight truly something new and unique. But as is right now, I can forsee a lot of Legend quickplay teams suiciding from the conveniently placed bridge in the start, since the last fight is harder than the other quickplay maps… I personally don’t mind, but I guess it depends on what you were going for.

  • The last phase of the last fight is bugged, unfortunately. Game crashed when Nurgloth was hit by a WHC ult, or by Ironbreaker’s Gromril Curse triggered knockback. We thought it was the stagger that did it, but Merc’s Ult hitting him didn’t cause a crash so I’m not sure…

Do you guys think there should be more enemies running after you during the final escape part of the Lair? It feels pretty barren in comparison to in V1 Drachen escape.

It depends. It comes after a really tough boss so making the finale too hard would lead to suiciding players at the beginning. (In legend, cata is tailored for ‘very hard’ and I don’t mind if the fight stay way above in difficulty than the others finales)

Congratulations to the Cata finish :grin:
We were trying it for, I dunno, 5 hours now, well… duo with randoms ^^ and can’t finish the 2nd boss phase :flushed: it’s just impossible to burst him and once he goes melee the constant spawns just grind our HP bars over time without the boss taking significant damage… still enjoying the challenge :ok_hand:

Good luck. We did it in 3 tries and several careers switchs. Still that fight is very fun.

@Fatshark_Hedge and the rest of the Sharks - Thank you for this wonderful map and so far the best boss fight!

No. At least it seemed fine on Cata.

That might help explain why my group has still been unable to finish him because of game crashing all the time. Will have to swap the classes around and see what happens.

Love the new map. Jumped into Vet and explored it for 45 minutes yesterday.
Found both Grims, a tome, and pressed a button on a Gargoyle but could not figure out what it did… And of course a ton of chalices.
Btw do we know the total number of chalices we need to find? In the achievement only “find all chalices” is mentioned. I think I found about 18 yesterday… But did not get the achievement…

The bossfight is pretty cool. I still need to try it in Legend and Cata.
And Lorewise those teasing lines from Nurgloth against the heroes are just awesome.
Bardin’s lore seems to be a LOT deeper than I thought!

You need to find 20 chalices

God dammit so close. I even accidentally ran in the opposite direction of the map a few times just exploring this huge castle.

It’s possible the ones you missed require a hidden switch or key

So now that chapter 3 is out on pc any ideas for a possible console release date please??
End on April maybe? One month from now for example April 24th?? How much time do you need more or less??
And will we get the whole expansion at once or into 3 chapters??
Please at least I just want to know if we have to wait for 1 or 2 months
