A Closer Look At...Interface Changes & Mentoring
Some of you have already read about the great news, that a new update is coming to Allods Online with some amazing new content and helpful improvements! As usual, we will inform you about everything you need to know about new things that will arrive in Sarnaut soon. Some of you may remember, that we'd like to start with the essentials, that concern every player: the interface! But this time we will have two great topics, because we will have some fantastic changes in the mentoring system too, which we want to show you in this guide!
Most of you have already decided to lend a hand to Sarnauts new blood and some recruits have already benefit from their Mentor's broad knowledge, therefore we decided to start with the revamped Mentoring System!
First of all, when you want to become an apprentice, you have to reach level 9 now, instead of lvl 6. This way you are able to get a little bit more in touch with the game and it's interface, so that you get familiar with the chat and are able to talk a bit to your mentor, before the real adventure begins! What about those apprentices, who are not level 9 yet? No worries, this new system will only affect players, who create an account after the new expansion.
But the most exciting change of all will probably be the new reward system. With Astral Storm, we introduced the new mentoring system, which came with some amazing rewards like a higher drop chance of anniversary coins, gold from your apprentice and signs of diligence, but with our new update you will be able to get some new rewards on top of that! Our eager mentors will be rewarded with some extra cash in their pockets, because we assume, that they are already equipped quite good, but the young apprentices of Sarnaut will get some rare armour, during their leveling process!
But these reward won't be easy to achieve, because they come along with a brand new quest chain:
In the Faction's capital you can now find a special NPC for both, League and Empire characters, who will offer you to accept a quest chain called "Knowledge of Power", but like you already know this from your history lessons in the school of Nezebgrad, wisdom and knowledge is not achieved easy and it will not only cost you some energy, but it will also take time to finish this trial, so every 5 levels you can meet with the Professors to get another lesson.
Players of the Empire search for Sarang Hurum and League players visit Methodius Cognoscentius, to get further instructions. When you accepted the quest, you will get an Apprentice's Wand. If you want to know how to handle this mysterious weapon, go on reading:
With the Apprentice's Wand you can summon a Spirit of Wisdom. To summon the Spirit, you simply have to click on the Apprentice's Wand in your bag or click the action button at the bottom of the screen. But we warn you to not underestimate this trial, because the Spirit of Wisdom will be a true challenge, which will be almost impossible to defeat on your own, so you might want to ask your mentor to lend you a hand!
Why you so mean Hedwige?
Once you've defeated this tough foe, you can head back to the Professor to get your reward, called Apprentice's gift. This gift contains a piece of equipment for you and your mentor will be rewarded with some gold for his efforts as a helpful teacher! Since this gift will be shared, your mentor probably won't like, if you'd open it in his absence, so this reward can only be used, when the apprentice has his mentor in the target.
|Apprentice's level||Apprentice's reward||Mentor's reward|
|10||epic weapons||15 gold|
|15||epic helmet||30 gold|
|20||epic earring||60 gold|
|25||epic shoulderpads||120 gold|
|30||epic necklace||240 gold|
|35||epic armour||500 gold|
|40||epic weapon||1000 gold|
|45||epic ring||2000 gold|
|50||3000 gold||3000 gold|
Another great change will be, that from now on you will not only be able to see your mentor and apprentices on the map and see when they log in or off, but you will also be able to see, if they are logging in with their reincarnations as well! So When you are stuck in the game and just don't know how to find that certain mob for your important quest or which ship you have to take to finally get to Asee-Teph and your mentor just wanted to try something new, forgetting the time and his duties, you will be able to chat to his reincarnation and ask him if he can lend you a hand. But how, if you don't know the reincarnation's name? Don't worry, just talk to your mentor and the message will be automatically forwarded to his reincarnation!
To help you with that, you can also find a new button next to the chat window, right below the emote icons, which allows you to chat to your mentor with just one mouseclick! This button will only be displayed, if you mentor or his reincarnation is logged in into the game!
What effects will this merge have to the mentors? First of all, the apprentices of reincarnation and ascendant will be merged and the total number of apprentices you can have will be 10, but don't worry, if you already had more than 10 apprentices, none of your beloved trainees will be taken away from you, but you won't be able to get more apprentices on top of that!
As you can see below, the Mentor / Apprentice Tab is now showing, in which guild the character is in. This does not sound very spectacular in the first place, right? But if it happens, that both, apprentice and master are in the same guild, the chance of gaining marks of diligence will be doubled! And did you notice the new line below the rewards? Here the mentor can see now, what rewards the apprentice was able to unlock, so dear apprentices of Sarnaut, better be keen, because your teacher is watching you!
With our latest update, we will of course have some great interface changes once again. Next to some great new icons we will have an improved automove system.
Before we will show you some screenshots of the great new interface which will await you in our latest expansion, we will give you a brief explanation about an amazing change to the automove system. Most of you have already used the automove quest, especially for long walks between quests or just to get the daily tasks of your Sarnautian life done. When you were annoyed by getting mounted and unmounted all the time between running from one questmarker to another, listen up, because the new automove system will calculate the distance of your travel and decide, whether or not it pays off, to travel this journey with your beloved mount, and mount you automatically!
Just click on the redesigned Automove button to try it on your own!
Some of you play the empire since the first days of the Allods Online, whilst others took the opportunity you got with one of the latest patches, to create a character on the opposite faction, and new players as well as League traitors sometimes feel lost, when they enter the heart of Nezebgrad, the Heart of the Empire! You amost had a little accident, when you were searching for the bathrooms, and ever since you never wanted to touch your little Arisen anymore and went back to old fashioned Novograd. Fortunately Yasker was able to convince the architects who designed this maze, to hand him the map along with the permission to create a copy of the plan for every citizen of Nezebgrad.
Take a look at the brand new map of Yasker's Tower!
Small but Powerful!
Have you missed the last holiday season and were looking in envy to all your friends on their summer horses? Don't worry, because the Tropical Atoll is back again with all the great gifts, mounts and dresses! What? You haven't heard of that too? With our next extension you shall miss this great event no more, nor all the other great Events in Sarnaut, because at the bottom left of your interface you can now find a special icon which announces the main event, which is running on the server!
It can happen sometimes, that you forget some of our helpful hotkeys to open all of your windows you need, with just one click. Thank god, that our icon bar at the bottom of the interface is still there, right? But where is the button for the stable? It sure must be somewhere! Before the change, the icon was displayed as a bag, but honestly.. who keeps his beloved mounts in a bag, and who should carry around a bag in that size? With our next extension, the stable icon will be changed to a more fitting one!
Have you ever wondered what your characters were eating, when you used the "eat" emote? The developers decided that neither Kanians nor Elves can live without proper food and so every race got an own meal or snack, when you use the emote now!
That's all for our first edition of our "A closer look..." series and we hope you enjoyed all the great changes, that will come soon to Sarnaut with our latest update. We are sure that you can't wait to take a look on your own at the new map of Yaskers Tower and are eager to head out with your apprentice to hunt for some precious rewards! In the next edition of our focus, we will share some informations about the exciting changes, that will come to the classes!
