Re: Mod16: Updates to Boons: UI Unification

A single window for all boons. This has some good and bad points.

Good
  • Overall point system
  • Much easier to compare and determine what boons are needed
  • Easier to retrain, if necessary
  • Adds a new level of diversity for character builds
Bad
  • Could be somewhat limiting as new campaigns are added
  • Possible slower character progression
We only get a look at Campaign Boons in this blog, no idea how or if this translates to Stronghold and PvP Boons.

Re: Mod16: Updates to Boons: Boon Tiers

Post by  Michael DarkAngel  »  Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:04 pm

With boons being unified and the introduction of boon points, you now have to spend points to climb the ladder of all campaign boons. Seems like this could slow the progress of getting the best boons. Finishing a campaign will no longer get you the upper eschelon boon, if you're leveling a new character and finish one campaign it won't even get you out of the first tier.

Speaking of tiers, you'll now be required to spend a certain amount of points before you can unlock the next tier.

Spending 10 points unlocks Tier 2
Spending 20 points unlocks Tier 3
Spending 30 points unlocks Tier 4
Spending 45 points unlocks Tier 5

You can spend points in Tiers 1-4 any way you wish, but on Tier 5 you will only be able to choose two boons.

Re: Mod16: Updates to Boons: Master Boons

Post by  Michael DarkAngel  »  Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:22 pm

At the very top of the list are Master Boons. Supposedly much like the final campaign boons we have now. They say they are bonus points that are earned for spending your accumulated boon points. What they don't say is how many boon points you need to spend in order to earn the bonus points, or how many bonus points you can earn overall.

Sounds like once you earn that first bonus point, choose wisely, you will only be able to fill one Master Boon at a time.
