Server Will Resume Soon

January 13, 2019, 10:29:19 AM Nexemis

Hey guys,

Just wanted to post an update I told Discord a bit ago. I will taking January off from coding, as I need to unplug and take a little break. The next 3 things I need to work on the game are big tasks and I will be starting them at the end of the month. This includes transferring all data to a new database system, redoing all the items to better allow more randomized and upgradable loot, as well as start adding the Warrior class.

Thank you to all the Beta testers for their patience as we continue to develop the game together!

Hey guys, first off I want to let everyone know that the server will be back online today at 5PM EST. We had some connection issues over the past few days, and have someone coming out to look at the connection on Wednesday. I would also like to thank all players for their patience as we work out bugs and continue to put out content since the Open Beta launch. Now that Chapter 4 is complete, PvP is next and will be fully enabled over the next couple days.

Chapter 4 is now completely ready for players to explore. You can now descend in the Spider Nest and Spider Hive to kill Venom Spiders and Blood Spiders. Continue the story line from the Majestic Faeries and see where the corruption began and what treasures lie in the Dead Woods. Players will acquire 2 more Ability Points in Chapter 4 and the max level has been increased to level 30.

Deloria Online Development Newsletter #3

July 29, 2018, 06:11:38 PM Nexemis



Hey guys, here are a few new things added to the game. I expect to have the launch date for the Open Beta by next newsletter. Thank you all for your continued patience while I implement all these new features.

As always, join us in the Deloria Online Discord Chat and Forums for all the latest information and screenshots.

NEW GUILD POSTS/TOWERS
Guild Posts and Towers have been added. Guilds can purchase a Guild Post or Guild Tower after defeating a boss inside and paying the weekly rental fee. Guilds can defeat a boss inside a Post/Tower to receive a buff for 5 minutes which allows the purchase of that Post/Tower for 7 days. The Guild Leader is the only one eligible to receive the buff, so they must be in the party that defeats the boss. Once a Guild Post/Tower is purchased, only that guild will be able to enter it until the lease is up. When the lease expires (7 days), the Guild Post/Tower will be able to be entered by anyone again. After a significant duration, the boss inside will respawn again, and the cycle repeats.

If you guild owns a Guild Banner at the time, your banner will display proudly outside your Guild Post/Guild Tower as well as throughout the inside.

Guild Posts are 1 floor and contain 5 storage tiles, and Guild Towers are 3 floors and contain 15 storage tiles. Storage Tiles allows guild members to drop items and equipment on savable tiles. These items will remain safe on these tiles until a Guild Leader or Guild Officer pick them up, even if the server goes down. This is a helpful way to store extra equipment, meals, battle items for new and existing guild members. Any items left when the lease expires (7 days) are deleted.

Swindler Woods Guild Post

Dry Lands Guild Post

Majestic Falls Guild Tower


NEW CLASS HALLS
New Class Halls have been added. After your initial Mage and Warrior quest lines are complete (Chapter 1 and 2) players will be able to choose a sub-class. Depending on the sub-class chosen, you will now have access to your Class Hall that only others of your class share.

Cleric Sanctuary (Church Basement)

Elementalist Class Hall (Mage Tower Apex)


NEW PLAYER GARDENS
Players unlock the gardening quest line at level 10. During this quest line you will unlock more garden pots for gardening use. Players can plant a variety of crops, and use different items on their crops to shorten grow time. Players can also acquire a golden shovel to increase their crop yields! Player Gardens are a great way to grow healing items.

Example of Player Gardens (Growing Bloom Bloom to harvest Bloom Berries)


NEW PVP GUILD HOUSE
The PvP Guild House will host a few NPC. You can talk to Scarlet the Bounty Hunter to toggle your world PvP on and off. This will allow players to PvP on all maps to others with this feature enabled. If your PvP is off, you can only attack/be attack other players on PvP specific maps.

You will also find the Guild Master here. You can talk to him to start a guild and choose a guild banner. You will also find the PvP vendor here. You can only buy items from him with PvP Tokens, a new currency earned from PvP.

PvP Guild House (WIP)

Server Wiped / New Beta Accounts

June 09, 2018, 10:57:36 PM Nexemis

Hey guys,

I have wiped the server for the last time before the Open Beta. All the existing accounts that were carried over with their closed beta rewards are still intact. A few new accounts have also been rewarded the Bronze Closed Beta reward for testing in the most previous testing cycle and leveling to level 15+. These new accounts have also been carried over. NO CHARACTERS ARE SAVED.

Accounts that have been carried over are listed here: http://deloria.online/index.php?del=leaderboard

With more time to focus on Deloria again, updates will be produced at a much faster rate again. As always, I appreciate the patience.

PvP and Ability Testing this weekend

March 31, 2018, 01:04:15 PM Nexemis

Happy Easter guys,

I have the Private Beta Server up this weekend for testing new abilities and PvP. All existing characters will have their Ability Points reset. I have also doubled the Ability Points you can have so more abilities can be tested this weekend. You can now choose 12 abilities after completing your Mage Trials, instead of just 6.

I have also added a character boost in, so new players can boost a character to level 18 with moderate gear. This will allow them to jump into the PvP and abilities testing. Boosted players will also start with 10 AP (5 from quests pre-completed) and will also start with their final Mage Trial quest in their quest log. Upon completing this final Mage Trial, boosted characters will get 2 more AP and be able to choose a sub-class.

The new Grand Arena has also been added to Collingwood. This will speed up ability testing and offer some party vs party or free for all fun!

Appreciate the testing guys, and encourage anyone able to help with the testing.

Jeffrey

Deloria Online 5.0 Patch Notes (Updated Frequently)

March 02, 2018, 06:27:20 PM Nexemis

DELORIA ONLINE 5.0 PATCH NOTES

WHAT'S NEW 5.0
Newest Additions At Top
Last Updated: Nov 14, 2018
#######################

NEW GUILD BANNERS/UPDATED VIEW CHARACTER PROFILE
The guild code has been completed and Guild Banners introduced. After your guild reaches Rank 5, the Guild Master will be able to purchase a Guild Banner to boost. These banners will show when someone views your character profile, as well as be displayed in and out of any guild post/tower owned by a guild.

Guild banners consist of two colors and 1 style (at the moment) with 20 in total at the moment. A guild banner style can only be owned by 1 guild at a time, so when one gets used it will no longer be sold by the guild vendor.

Guild Banner purchase and display in character profile


UPDATED BEAUTY BOUTIQUE
With the addition of paperdoll head appearances, the Beauty Boutique was in need of an upgrade. You can now select from 3 provided services; Hairstyle change, apply a permanent outfit and apply a permanent head appearance. You will only be charged a small fee for the services you select. You no longer require a boutique voucher either, just delets.

You will only be able to select from the appearances you have unlocked. You can learn appearances from equipping armors, as well as appearance patterns acquired from vendors, quests and even events.

Updated Beauty Boutique

NEW GUILD POSTS/TOWERS
Guild Posts and Towers have been added. Guilds can purchase a Guild Post or Guild Tower after defeating a boss inside and paying the weekly rental fee. Guilds can defeat a boss inside a Post/Tower to receive a buff for 5 minutes which allows the purchase of that Post/Tower for 7 days. The Guild Leader is the only one eligible to receive the buff, so they must be in the party that defeats the boss. Once a Guild Post/Tower is purchased, only that guild will be able to enter it until the lease is up. When the lease expires (7 days), the Guild Post/Tower will be able to be entered by anyone again. After a significant duration, the boss inside will respawn again, and the cycle repeats.

If you guild owns a Guild Banner at the time, your banner will display proudly outside your Guild Post/Guild Tower as well as throughout the inside.

Guild Posts are 1 floor and contain 5 storage tiles, and Guild Towers are 3 floors and contain 15 storage tiles. Storage Tiles allows guild members to drop items and equipment on savable tiles. These items will remain safe on these tiles until a Guild Leader or Guild Officer pick them up, even if the server goes down.

NEW GRAND ARENA
I have added the new Grand Arena in Collingwood. This will help test PvP and abilities much faster, as well as some Party vs Party PvP action.

Collingwood Grand Arena

ALL NEW ABILITIES AND ABILITY TREES
I have greatly expanded the ability trees for all classes, adding more abilities and selection. Players will be able to customize their builds more and allow them to choose 20 abilities now (up from 15).

Expanded Ability Tree


ON-SCREEN DEBUFFS
On-top of debuffs showing at the top left of the game screen, debuffs will now also appear above your character so surrounding players can see any negative status affects you are inflicted with.

Example of character being disarmed!

NEW LOGOUT PROCESS
Characters will now have a 9 second logout process when quitting the game. You can force quit right away, but your character will remain on the server for the 9 second duration. This will prevent players from disconnecting to save lives from stuns and other debuffs. Logging out in a town bypasses this countdown.

New character logout

NEW SHOPS/VENDORS
Some new shops and vendors have opened up in Collingwood. Josie now sells jewelry, accessories and capes, while Scarlet in the Magic Shop now sells a variety of enchants. The Collingwood Dock is now open as well, selling boarding passes to Merchant Cove on Killik Island. Some of the existing vendors in town had some of their prices changed (ie: potions and elixirs are cheaper now).

NEW RENDERING
I have updated the rendering code to process faster in some areas, as well as make the rendering more compatible for crossover software from other OS.

NEW COLLISION DETECTION
I have a new unit detection code that will prevent from your character from moving onto the same tile as an NPC. This was a client-side rendering issue which should be resolved now. I have removed the auto-refresh that I put in as a temporary work-around for this bug.

NEW CHARACTER PROFILE
I have completely redid the View Character screen as the new Character Profile screen. It is used to for both yourself and other players in-game. The new Character Profile screen shows a lot more information for players, including; character stats and attributes, bonus stats and enchants, character achievements and player statistics.

NEW CHARACTER STAT BONUSES
Included on the new Character Profile screen you will see new stat bonuses and enchants listed. This will give you more detail on new stats bonuses and enchants you can now get from in-game equipment and items. Some bonuses have multiple levels, while some are more an on/off. For example; Autoloot is an on/off bonus. Once you have this bonus stat once, it will not increase further. Other bonuses may have caps or limits, for example; Increased Regeneration and Resource Regeneration have caps. Once you reach these caps, they will not increase any further. Bonuses that are at max will show in yellow, while non-max will show in white. If you do not have this bonus at all it will show in dark grey.

NEW PLAYER ACHIEVEMENTS
I have added the new achievement ...
