AHW VIII Has Begun!

Children of the night,

Promo bild 403x403 ahw8 now.jpg

AHW VIII has begun! It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins. This year we find that artifacts have found their way into each of the event portals and even the event portal bosses are dropping a set of them! You will have to work together to find them in time, but they will be remaining so don't worry if you can't find them all this go around. Best of luck! As with all artifacts, you can find a compiled list of who drops what in Discord chat as soon as players report them. Chat is found on the game menu under Community -> Chat. Come join the fun for event giveaways as well! :)

During the event, players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. However, we have had to say goodbye to Cherry Credits as a donation option. Check out the new "Psionic coffin", and "Hidden Secret" accessory. We have brought back an older donation accessory, "Wicked Pumpkin" with updated procs. It has not been seen since the first AHW. Older players please check if you have the item first before donating for it.

Adjustments have been made to the creature attraction rates in R3 Underground Sewers. The rarities are now properly reflected for all including Ripperjoe. He can now be easily attracted with pearls as is correct for a very common creature.

And now a special announcement from Diviad - on Oct 11, 2018, we launched our first mobile game worldwide! It is called Ghost Tappers, a hyper-casual idle game and can be found in the app store and on google play. The game is set in virtual Scotland and incorporates many of the ghosts found in our original Facebook game Ghost Trappers. And SO MUCH more! Please try it out, we have great hopes for it!

As for next after this AHW, soon it will be Bloodred week in December with more surprises. Time flies when there is so much happening!

Enjoy the event, and thanks for playing!

It's Mayan Summer and the tectonic plates under the rest of the regions and portals have shifted and revealed more artifacts to be found!

This time there are over 100 new artifacts, so remember to work together to find the items and come onto discord chat for updates on found items and to share your finds!

During the event, donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. You might want to check out the new servant Temple Guardian, the Hidden Temple Tomb and the Tumi accessory.

Blood moon arising IX

Children of the night,

Announcements-Blood moon arising 2018.jpg
BMA IX has begun! It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins. There is a new epic boss in the Haunted Field of the Dead that drops new loot as well as new loot drops in that Field and from it's bosses. Be sure to check out the merchant as well.

Some QoL changes have been made:

All quests now have a confirm popup for when you abort a quest. No more aborted legacy quests in error. We do listen.

All body modification tokens now have the corresponding body modification listed on them to make it easier to decide if you want to do that quest. No more going to the bodyshapers to see what body modification links to a specific token.

And now, a brand new feature for CoB! Artifacts!

Seems long ago beneath the earth in the regions and portals of CoB some entity or force deeply buried objects of great power with some of the creatures. Hidden so well they do not show anywhere except as blurry shadows on the new artifacts page under items on the menu. Until you manage to find them that is. Rumour has it that one ancient vampire knows the location of all items, but she will not speak. Each completed set gives a permanent set bonus as well as a title. Work together to find the items, use your guildmates and come onto discord chat to help each other. PvE loot modifiers do not work to enhance your chance to find these items, only the new ability to increase chance to find artifacts will. This has been added to the servant Raven Familiar, as well as to new donation items you may want to check out.

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Check out the new servant Excavator 02, Glyph of the Archeologist and the Prospectors Kit.

And lastly, CoB on the Armorgames platform will be shutting down as of May 31, 2018. This was a decision of their doing but one we are dealing with. Please see our forum thread for details pertaining to transferring your account data to one of our other platforms if you are an AG player. The event will not be happening on AG.

Coming up will be further expansion to the artifact regions and a new portal. Have fun!

Bloodred week 2017 has begun!

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

Xmas2017promo.jpg
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all the staff at Diviad! We hope you all the best in the coming new year!

Welcome back to Bloodred Week! It's that time of year again when the Silverlight lake and Golden Summer lake portals open. There are new trainers and merchants for each portal with new quests and items to craft in both. WoCs from previous years that used to be dominated outside of Silverlight lake although they dropped in the portal are now dominated at the new trainers. Be sure to dominate your servants while the portals are open! Golden Summer lake has a new portal boss and there are new loot drops there as well.

Regions R13.1, R14 and R15.1 now have PvP quests at the Battlemaster. Quest rewards are region specific tokens, check out each region's merchant for a new item to craft.

Housekeeping - The donation belt "Glacial Belt" has been renamed to "Blizzard Belt" with some upgrades to it's procs. This was so that we could make a crafted Glacial set to include a belt this year to match the Glacial Gaze and Glacial Gauntlets available at Golden Summer Lake's new merchant.

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Be sure to check out the new exclusive donation body modifications for PvB/CB, Krampus's Tomb coffin, the Glyph of Achilles with it's new proc, and the return of the Christmas Crate from last year with the accessory "Sunscreen SPF 5000". Now onto lots of QoL changes:

BIG NEWS for Kongregrate and Armorgames players! You will be excited to see that the Blood Ruby transmutator at Coralines is now at a rate of 5:1 instead of 10:1.

FB/standalone players, your "confirm all buff requests" button is now global and will buff all players needing a buff not just your guildmates (and any coven members should you be an older player with coven).

And for everyone:

1. Base bloodlust has been increased from 300 to 360.

2. We've put into place an incentive to build guilds with the following: 10 - 40 members players get an additional heroism 1 41 - 70 members gives heroism 2 71-100 gives heroism 2 and chance to gain Brothers-in-Arms 2

3. In guild lists, only guild leaders and officers will be able to see a members last seen by date.

4. Old 1 and 2 member guilds created long ago have been disbanded to clean up the guild listings.

5. Items that are crafted can no longer be disenchanted, or scrapped. This means you will no longer lose your weapon or accessory accidentally. All crafted and merchant items have also been been made unique. All unique items are now recognized that if you have it in your inventory you will not be able to craft or purchase it again. So no more crafting or buying something twice by mistake.

6. Items bought with VPs, BS or BB's can no longer be scrapped or disenchanted. (This means Battlemaster items no longer have scrap or disenchant on them.)

7. Any items bought with only credits you can scrap for credits.

8. Loot drops that were disenchantable are still disenchantable. No worries... The option to scrap was taken off all loot drop items except for boots from CBs. I figured you would rather not lose your unique item for a few credits and have to farm it again.

9. We now have a global chat for all platforms with voice and text options accessible from the community menu.

And that's it for now, phew! Enjoy the event and your holidays! Oh and did I forget to mention new titles?

Blood moon arising VIII

Children of the night,

Announcements-Blood moon arising VIII.jpg
And at last! So much to tell you where to begin?!

BMA VIII has begun! It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins. There is a new epic boss in the Haunted Field of the Dead that drops new loot as well as new loot drops in that Field. Three new quests have been added, one for the orginal FoTD, one of the WFotD and one for the House of Seven Sins. Each area now has it's own trainer to make things easier to find quests and dominate servants. There is new PvP loot as well.

Some general changes have been made:

The Blood Badges limit has been removed.

R13 quests Pirkman's Legacy and Wannabe Dragon each now have 3 mystic spellcircles as quest rewards.

There is now a Max Damage Coven Boss Leaderboard, check under rankings, and also on your "My Vamp" page to see your rank on the leaderboard.

The close (and surrender boss) buttons have been moved on epic and coven bosses, lower down to under the load setup row. This will ease the amount of scrolling that needs to be done.

And now, welcome to Zirkus des Schreckens! A new portal for all vampires level 11 and above. To access this portal purchase some "Balloons" at Coralines and step inside the big top to meet the new and exotic creatures that inhabit this portal. There are quests to complete and many items to craft, for low and high level players. There is also a portal boss to fight. This portal will remain after BMA ends.

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Check out the Broomstick mount, Bloody Mary servant and Punchy the Clown accessory.

Thank you and have fun!

Talent trees and QOL changes

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

Announcements-Talent trees and quality of life.jpg
This update brings you some quality of life changes that you have suggested. Keep bringing the feedback and suggestions coming in the forum for your game, we do listen!

Some changes to the coven boss livefeed - you can now speed attack coven bosses, using the link on each boss description. The livefeed page also has the load setups so you can switch setups without leaving the livefeed.

Coven bosses now disappear once loot is collected.

Talent Trees have been adjusted! New and interesting talents to make the trees more in line with each tree type have been created. All old talent trees have been reset as they have become invalid and you can set your new talent tree without using an oblivion potion.

Van Goth portal items now have level 4 upgrades! Check out what you need to craft them! They are for level 150 players.

There are 2 new donation items, "Rabid Squirrel" which deals soul damage, and the "Timebender Covenant" upgrade item which doubles the time you are allowed to stay in a regular portal. Check them out!

Next up is a new portal!
