Build 1.25c (06 May 2019)
The ultimate challenge for those who have defeated even New Game+! As with NG+, this restarts the game world while keeping all of your progress. The entire game will be much harder in a variety of ways, in exchange for even greater treasure-finding prospects and the ability to upgrade equipment to ++++ in the Dreamcaster. If you can defeat this mode, you’ll have supreme bragging rights! Here is a list of key changes in Savage World:
Bonus CT gain from all sources reduced by 33%
Using any item from your inventory, unless it grants CT, now reduces your CT to 0
Parrying now blocks 66% of damage (instead of 100%)
Base powerup drop rate reduced to 25% of normal game; healing reduced 50%
Monsters recover from non-damaging statuses twice as quickly
Monsters gain additional stats, damage, defense, and aggro range
Certain easily-dodged monster abilities like Panthox’s Claw Rake and Electric Jelly’s Lightning Circle now have more challenging targeting patterns
Monster skill cooldowns reduced by 25%
Monster density and respawn rate increased
Boss fights now have extra enemies
Items can be upgraded a 4th time in the Dreamcaster (++++)
Loot quality improved throughout the game
Items can now spawn with up to +++ already added
Double legendary and Orb of Reverie drop rate compared to NG+
You can learn an additional ultimate Weapon Mastery
Non-summoned player-faction monsters should no longer combine with each other (could lead to wacky scaling)
Godspeed Strike no longer gives you a free turn automatically, instead granting +25 CT on use.
Daggers now grant +35 CT on crit (down from 50). They are just a little too strong in giving the player multiple turns.
In New Game+ (and beyond), the hidden dream boss encounter is now much harder
In New Game+ (and beyond), loot rank has been nudged up.
In New Game+ (and beyond), champions now have a chance to drop Rose Petals in addition to their other loot
In New Game+ (and beyond), shops now carry more stuff
(Legend of Shara) The “Armor Training” relic mod should no longer show up on armor (as it could potentially show up on medium/light armor, where it did nothing).
Job change scroll should no longer use stairs if you use it on top of stairs
Fixed Godspeed Strike display bug
(Legend of Shara) Hotfix for Wanderer’s Journey related bug introduced in 1.25b
Fixed issues with hero starting in the wrong position on certain maps (like the 2nd boss fight)
Sword Dancer’s gold emblem (allowing for skill parrying) should now work as intended, giving you 33% of your normal Parry chance (instead of the unintended 100% of your normal Parry)
Also fixed bug where abilities used on ANY character had a 3x multiplier on parry chance…
Fixed wonkiness allowing you to sometimes learn multiple armor masteries (quest flag was being reset)
Fixed bug with Ice Daggers sometimes not dealing triggering its effect correctly
It should no longer ever be possible to Fast Travel from within an Item Dream (caused some further bad behavior)
Hopefully fixed bug where the black fade behind the end cutscene and credits sometimes didn’t work
Fixed some bad save file issues
(Legend of Shara) ‘Factory Free-for-All’ should now properly give you 10 Camouflage Perfumes at the start
(Legend of Shara) Attempted fixes for Mirai campaign data leaking into Shara data somehow
(Legend of Shara) Fixed hang in post-final boss cutscene
(Legend of Shara) Calligrapher ground buffs (shadow, lightning, water) should now spawn on monsters, as intended
(Legend of Shara) Fixed possible bug in Shara’s second boss fight
A new challenge has been added: “Savage World”, unlocked after completing New Game+!
(Legend of Shara) After completing Shara’s story in any save slot, Mirai will now be able to do a Shara cosplay.
Save file size optimizations, particularly for Legend of Shara players with many relics
Game now saves an additional layer of backup history to help with future file corruption issues
QUALITY OF LIFE
Doubled the size of the combat log in the Journal
There are now 15 save slots available
New features for the searchbar! See below:
Searching ‘trash’ will allow you to view only items marked as trash
You can now add “or” to your searches, for example ‘sword or axe’, to get items that match at least one of those terms. You can even use multiple OR terms, for example: ‘relic or legendary or trash’
You can now search by rank by typing: rank:x, where x is the desired rank. Typing rankbelow:x will search for anything below that rank, while rankabove:x will search for that rank and higher.
The same works for rarity, for example: rarity:common, raritybelow:ancient, etc.
Negative searches can now be performed with !, for example !quiver would return anything not a quiver
Also, searches for ‘quiver’, ‘shield’, and ‘book’ should now work properly to search for those offhand types
There is now a tutorial that pops up the first time you use the searchbar (after you close the UI you were using, of course) explaining these features
Minor text fixes
