Revenge of the Fallen: The Vault and the Fruit Stand

Welcome everyone! It is me, Quaximi, here with another blog post. Today, I’m bringing you an overview of the new Vault, a rather important part of RotF’s core game, which was missing during our first phase of closed testing.

chests, chests, chests, chests…

Vaults are back!

The Vault has been revamped to match the theme (and lore) of the new Nexus. In terms of function, however, it has remained mostly unchanged. As with legacy, you’ll have a limited number of storage slots available (up to 84 Vault chests, at the moment), which you’ll unlock over time.

good loot in there 😉

Gift chests no longer occupy a permanent space in the Vault. They are gone (reduced to atoms). Instead, whenever you get a giftwhether it’s from the market or another sourcea chest will appear near the spawn of the vault. Notably, receiving gifts will no longer require you to re-join the world!

In addition to the chests, I want to highlight two other points of interest in the new Vault: the Fruit Stand and the Practice Grounds.

The Practice Grounds

The Practice Grounds are essentially a small testing area where you’ll be able to quickly switch between builds, and test them without needing to continuously move between worlds.

blooooom…

The Practice Grounds currently includes a Practice Dummy and a Runic Orb. The Practice Dummy is meant to allow you to quickly test DPS and build efficacy, though he doesn’t display stats (yet). And the Runic Orb will provide quick access to the Rune/Skill Tree. The scope of the Practice Grounds will grow as we finish more of our planned progression systems (like the subclass system/class skill trees), but this is a fine start!

The Fruit Stand

If you played during our first closed testing period (or watched others play), you may have noticed that there’s a new way to max your character: stat fruit! As a result, the Potion Storage is closing down shop (since we no longer have stat potions), and we’re opening the Fruit Stand for business.

in order: Health Strawberry, Mana Blueberry, Attack Blackberry, Defense Coconut, Speed Kiwi, Dexterity Pepper, Vitality Pomegranate, Wisdom Elderberry, Haste Orange

The Fruit Stand is at the bottom of the map, just below the spawning area. There you’ll meet the Vaultkeeper, Cherry. Talk to her, and you can retrieve (and munch on) the fruit you’ve collected over your various adventures in the realm.

🙂 all of these fruits were collected in a legit manner 🙂

Admittedly, the Fruit Stand and the Potion Storage are functionally identical, so we won’t restate what we’ve already shown with respect to function. But unlike the legacy Potion Storage, which was represented by a single sprite, the Fruit Stand fills up visually as you collect more fruit.

As always, everything in this post is WIP and will most likely undergo some changes, but for now that’s all we have to show. If you have any feedback, feel free to share it with us. We’re always happy to listen—and stay tuned for more updates to come!

Thank you for reading, and as always, check the post in 10 minutes for a chance to grab a key. I will now quack off. 🙂

Revenge of the Fallen: jellies, potions, and more potions?

Welcome everyone! Today, it is I – Quaximi – who will be bringing you some updates on what we have been working on.

And since most of the keys tend to be at the bottom of the page, I thought that I’ll be evil and put mine at the top. Enjoy! WUML-S6JD-VPK7-1XPX (Use at https://rotf.io/register)

Jello-pocalypse!

Below you will find a video showcasing an environment for the Gelatinous Palace – one of the many biomes you’ll be able to come across whilst exploring various realms. Everything related to Gelatinous Palace has been sprited by the talented Mr. Foucs. 🙂

Although the palace will be something you’ll explore more in the biome’s dungeon, in the realm, you’ll come across a once lushful and beautiful cotton-candy forest, which has now been mostly taken over by the ever-hungry jello. You’ll explore the jellified forest in hopes of finding the lord, and getting access to the palace—all while fighting off the incoming jellies, trying not to join the jellified corpses scattered around the biome.

The Gelatinous Palace is directed towards early-game characters, and although we aren’t able to showcase its monsters in today’s post (behaviors are still in-progress), here is a little peek at the different enemies you’ll battle on your way to the palace.

And yes, they taste pretty good as well… 🙂

The potions!

As a continued effort, our local developers – patpot and Miniguy – have been making steady progress on implementing anticipated features, so that everything’s nice and ready for the upcoming closed testing session.

First off, we finally have the ability to drink (or consume, if you enjoy eating glass) stat potions! Have a look:

*slurp slurp*

And of course, since we are on the topic of potions, we also had to bring in the potion storage itself. Here’s how it looks so far:

Who doesn’t love self-organizing storages?

As always, everything in this post is WIP and will most likely undergo some changes, but for now that’s all we have to show for today. If you have any feedback, feel free to share it with us—we’re always happy to listen—and of course, stay tuned for more posts to come.

Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day. 🙂
