Book 3: Reimagined - Queen of Swordhaven & Ninja Rework!
Hey there, heroes!
This week, while Dove is still indisposed and recovering, we're doing an early Reimagined release!
The Book 3 main story quest "Queen of Swordhaven" has had dialogue adjusted and rewritten. These were relatively minor changes, but still important!
Also this week, however, Ninja has received its major update and rework! More information can be found below.
Ninja and Pirate also have new customization options, and Technomancer has received a new customization option as well.
Ninja now has access to the Classic customization when unlocked, and the Tempest customization can be unlocked with the Dusk Tempest Catalyst. Technomancer can also use the Dusk Tempest Catalyst!
Pirate now has access to the Dread Pirate customization when both Pirate and Ninja have been unlocked, and the Sunken customization can be unlocked with the Sunken Fathoms Catalyst.
As a result of these changes, Dread Pirate and Old Ninja are no longer accessible. If you want to use those looks, you will have to use the Armor Customization room to change the appearance of your Pirate or Ninja class.
This week's Reimagined quest "Queen of Swordhaven" can be found in Sulen'Eska, and the new Customization Catalysts can be obtained from the Book of Lore's Customization Catalyst shop!
Ninja rework details:
As usual, skill effects and numbers and mechanics are subject to change! Also, please note that Color-Custom Ninja has not been updated and will be folded in to Ninja as a Customization option at a later date.
Ninja no longer has a default 2.25x crit damage modifier, instead, using the default 1.75x crit damage modifier.
Ninja Mechanics - Ambush and Catalytic Flow
- On the first turn of battle, Ninja gets a free double turn!
- Certain skills will let you follow up with a free turn when used first.

Ninja is a rather defensive damage-over-time focused class that still has the power to debilitate and power through foes if needed! Use your tools and Venoms wisely, and create combos for huge damage if you can find the openings! Check out the new Ninja rework in-game now! We look forward to reading your feedback and thoughts.
Finally, the DragonLord Castle house should tentatively now properly display all dragon heads/wings/tails. If it does not, I will have to investigate it further at a later date. Apologies for the inconvenience!
And that's all for this week! We'll do our best to do our main story release next week, but everything hinges on how Dove is feeling and recovering. Thank you all for your well-wishes and understanding!
