Blood moon arising VIII

Andi the Antediluvian said:

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!

Dark Forest nightmare mode

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

Announcements-Dark forest nightmare mode.jpg
It seems the event that took place in Crows hills cemetery Nightmare mode caused not 1 but 2 temporal anomalies in the Dark forest which caused the place to fracture into 2 new regions: Dark forest meadow Nightmare mode and Dark forest sanctuary Nightmare mode, so we raised the level cap to 150. You will need to be nice to the Undertaker in Crows hill cemetery Nightmare mode so he will drop the misc item (Forest portal) to enter Dark forest meadow Nightmare mode region, there you will find a quest at the Trainer to help craft the item needed to reach Dark forest sanctuary Nightmare mode region (Holy grail, see the Merchant in Dark forest meadow Nightmare mode).

For a change you will not find any new servants or mounts to craft/loot, nor will you find many weapons to upgrade (just 2), BUT there are several new armor sets to craft or loot that will complement and greatly enhance your existing gear: 1 new toxic pvp set, 1 new pvb set and 3 (!!!) new pve sets (actually 4 new pve sets: the chest armor “Crimson death chest” is now part of a small 2-piece set, the second piece is a drop somewhere in the new region) and a few other items ( a new glyph, a new vampiric power and a new coffin).

You will also find 3 new internal body mods at the Bodyshaper (Granite bones, Magma blood and Righteous heart), the new quests for these are in R11 and R14 (just a friendly reminder : you will need the the donation item “Seal of the archon” to be able to equip the internal body mods).

Of course we also have 4 new donation items (have a look at the donation page!).

Blood Moon Arising 5 has begun

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

GUI-BMA5 has started.jpg
It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins.

At the Western and Eastern field you can find Spider Egss which summon a new epic boss in the Eastern field. This boss has of course new drops, one that can be used for body modifications.

Yes, body modifications! Here an explanation of what they do:

Body modifications come in 3 main types external, head and internal. Players should note that tokens are required, and these are obtained by doing legacy quests which can be found in various game regions (with the exception of the frozen breath token and pvp + some are pvb loot). Legacy quests can be done even with an active PvE quest. Once the token is aquired the body shaper at Club Noir will then craft the modification. Pvpers should check the battle master for starting with pvp body modifications. Donors should take note that „Seal of the archon“ is required to unlock internal body modifications. Also there are „Joker tokens“ which can be used as any token required for crafting a body mod. Once modifications are required it should be noted that there is a 24 hour cooldown in terms of switching between different modifications of the same area, and a cost of 75 sapphires More modifications to come in the future

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Also check out the new Shadow Phoenix and Black Widow servant.

Next will be the opening of R13, the Secret laboratory in which the minions of Cyberlabs are conducting weird experiments and perform dark blood magic rituals.

Thank you and have fun!

Titles

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

you can now show your achievement is CoB to others by displaying your title.

Titles consist of one prefix and one suffix, so you could e.g. be Giantslayer (prefix )Andi the unholy (suffix).

Under "My vampire" you will find "Claim titles". Then you can select one prefix and one suffix.

The conditions that have to be met for the titles will remain secret for the time being. We want the community to find them out. Most titles are retroactively applied. Once in a while you should click again on „Claim titles“, maybe you have unlocked something in the meantime?

If you want an easy title you could donate for the new Glyph of generosity.

One minor thing we have added is the Infectous dreadcrystal at the jeweler's.

Next will be Blood Moon Arising 3.

Crows Hills crypt – A new portal region

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

are you ready to unveil the secrets that lie inside the crypt?

Go to the undead broker in Crows Hill Cemetery and acquire a bone key there.

In the crypt you will find new creatures to fight as well as a new epic boss. Of course there is a lot of new loot and items to be crafted.

Scrap option: You can now scrap some of your items that were clustering your inventory and get a small amount of credits back.

The quest Diving into the sewers that we introduced recently in R3 is now registering correctly. Expect a coven boss quest for each region soon .

Donators may want to look at the new items Soulflame daemon, sacred lion Glyph of enlightenment and Glyph of temptation.

We will rework the Ghoul and Waste Ghoul artwork since that wasn't too well received. Check out the new Voidspawn and Dark templar!

CoB is now live on Friendster.

Next will be titles and then Blood Moon Arising 3.

New avatars

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

as promised we will bring you new avatars.

However, they are a donator feature since they are strictly vanity items, meaning they have no impact on your gameplay!

Each pair of our avatars (feral, rockers, artists, egyptians etc.) will get a second pair. This means that you will now see 4 avatars on the avatar wars page.

If you get a new avatar you will lose your current one. If you possess a new avatar you will see a „change“ button on your avatar picture under „My vampire“. Changing new avatars has a cooldown of 48 hours.

A few changes: Polaris dragon has been buffed. The power Celerity now grants Evade instead of Blur. The require ment for the quest „It's a trap“ has been lowered. There is a new donation deal as requested by some players: 12k Blood Diamonds

Next will be a new portal region, the Crows Hills crypt.

New proficiency – Pole arms

Andi the Antediluvian said:

Children of the night,

when we introduced proficiencies we overlooked one type: pole arms. This is lances, spears and similar weapons have a strange weapon time. In reagrd to R12 we are now introducing this new weapon type.

Sorry if it causes some discrepancies with what you hve levelled so far, but most of the effected weapons are not „end game“ weapons and we doubt that people particularly levelled up „Lance of the Black Knight“.

Proficiency: pole arms grants Deflects 2%, 4%, 6% at level 1-3. Donators want to look at the warstalker glyph that levels pole arms faster.

Following weapons have been changed to pole arsm:
