Dear Treasure Hunter,
The path to Greatness is often bound to the one of triumph: you defeat countless foes, while proving patience towards your main goal – to enter the Pantheon of the Gods! With Lords of Destiny: Path to Victory, your wish to be more than a simple hero will be granted with the next phase of glory: the creation of your own personal Maze!
Your visit your own allod every day, hoping to see it grow and become its own monument to Greatness! You will be delighted to know that starting with this update, you will be moving closer to realising that ambition! Grab a piece of paper and follow our instructions, the Path of Greatness is a twisting one and even your own instance won’t be protected from treasure-hungry enemies!
Personal Allod: In the beginning
You reached Greatness by earning a title to make you stand out from you peers, you managed to complete all the phases required to create your allod, defeating ennemies and accomplishing challenges every week. Are those keys you hold the ones to your own paradise? Or is it a dungeon?
If you were already the proud owner of your own palace, you will see it grow into something bigger and more monumental with the launch of the Path to Victory update. Gone now is the messy construction site, welcome the majestic tower of your allod with the Horns of Abundance and the Sparks!
Bob Jackhammer won’t be the only one to welcome you to your home, as he brought a colleague of his, who is key in the construction of your dungeon: Bob the Muscle.
He will ask you if you want to build your Maze for 10 000 gold coins. Don’t roll your eyes, these goblins won’t work for free! Once they are done, you will be able to wander through the hallways of your palace!
But before venturing in your own instance, take a look at the Horns of Abundance, they will be important to improve your Maze and increase your own wealth. At the start, you will have 3 of them, allowing you to generate one of the following resources:
- Gold Ore - Up to the value of 1000 Coins per Day
- 100 Glowing Tears of Dragon - Allows you to use certain class abilities
- 20 Shining Tears of Dragon - Allows you to use certain class abilities
- 100 Astral Coral - Allows you to build additional Horns of Abundance
- 100 Astral Granite - Allows you to expand your maze
Production of these Resources is free, but you will have to wait 15 days to obtain them, unless you speed up the process with the Sparks of the heroes defeated in your Maze, but we will get to that in a while.
Expand your dungeon!
Now you have your own Maze in your possession, it is time to customize it! First of all, you will have a specific design for your Maze, depending on the type of allod you picked during its creation. For the Jungle Allod, you will have a Cave Maze, for the Icy Allod a Palace Maze and for the Desert Allod, it will be a Catacomb Maze.
When you begin excavation, you will be able to create your first passages for free. From that point on though, you will need to pay for additions with Astral Granite. The bigger your Maze becomes, the more Astral Granite you will need.
When you are done creating your dungeon, you will discover your first boss; the Bully Goblin! Don’t worry, he won’t throw that dynamite at you, although we can’t say the same for any foolish creature that tries to visit your dungeon!
Let’s say you have gathered enough Astral Granite to expand your Maze. At the door at the end of your maze you can select customization options such as fork, passage or intersection. Although the first boss was automatically placed for you, you will have to use your god-like power and distribute the next monsters!
A random amount of spawn points will be generated each time you create a room, a spawn can be specific to a type of mob: Group, Solo, Boss and End-Boss.
Click on the Spawn Point to see the selection of monsters you can deploy. Each of them has their own skills and tricks, and you can even expand your Bestiary of feral goblins in several ways:
Battleground = Skirmish, Boutique = Item Shop
Keep in mind that although the first 2 types of goblins you have from the beginning have Unlimited use, it may not be the same for those you gather later on! So be careful on how to place them, because you will have to win them again on the activities listed above!
You will be able to increase the resistance of these goblins by completing several quests for Bob the Muscle in the Astral, by collecting Emblems of Victory of various quality levels on the Astral Allods of the Mysterious layer.
Manage to fulfill these quests, and your enemies won’t be laughing at all when they face your pumped-up goblin guardians! And the only thing they will dream about will be the battle cries of these fierce creatures!
Now you wonder, what about it? Can I see other people’s dungeons? Can I get visitors? What do I get out of it? Who will stop the paparazzi?
We explained earlier on that the Horns of Abundance will be creating your income and this income is gained in different forms, depending on your needs. From the moment you build your Maze and activate the Horns, these Resources won’t be safe from the visitors who will be pillaging your dungeon. After all, what would be the point of a temple without raiders?
Groups eager to visit one of the Great’s dungeons will be able to do so from the Skirmish interface (CTRL+,) by selecting “Plunder”. Remember you will need to be level 55 and in a full party unless, that is, you want to go kamikaze (and most likely die in a shameful way). The Group Leader will have to sign his party up, select the difficulty level desired, the allod and finally the type of resource manufactured by the Horns of Abundance that they seek to plunder. Be aware that the islands available to you will be random!
The party will then enter the Maze with only one aim: get out alive with the loot! As for the Astral instances, you can only have a limited amount of deaths in your party, on top of a timer. You will need to complete the Maze in 60 minutes or less, otherwise you will fail in the attempt, knowing you can only try a Maze 3 times a week. So be as prepared as you would for the Mausoleum, who knows what lays within those walls…
If your party is successful and escapes victorious, they will receive what they picked as a reward (the Resources from the Horns of Abundance). Needless to say it is more rewarding to go invade an allod after a few days of production, allowing the Horns of Abundance timt to generate enough Resources to worth the risk to yourself and your party, otherwise, you won’t receive much from your attempt. And what about the owner? As the Resources are plundered, the cycle of production for the Resource taken will be halted for 3 days, until it resumes its production cycle.
If your party is unsuccessful, well… The owner will be only too Happy to collect your Spark and use it i to accelerate the creation of his Resources! The owner can have up to 50 Sparks at once in their Spark Catcher, so feel free to use them to speed up Resource production; be aware you can use the captured Sparks on each Horn twice a day. And, he/she will be able to see who died by hovering the mouse over the Spark Catcher…
It is good to know that if your dungeon defeats those invaders the difficulty will be increased over time, with the chance of promoting it to another Tier. In short: the Maze’s Tier is determined by how many players it defeats. Also the level (power) of the mobs inside each dungeon is determined by which Tier your dungeon is in. The higher the league, the tougher the mobs. The more people die within its walls, the more powerful your dungeon becomes and the more resources you can produce….
Will you make it to the top Tier? Or will you end like this Bully Goblin?
You will see having your own Personal Dungeon isn’t just a matter of pride, but a way to expand your home, test your enemies’s resilience and win useful Resources in the process. For those on the outside, trying to get in, it will be an additional way to get extra rewards for themselves…and their own Maze!
We will be bringing you more information very soon… so make sure to follow our official website to learn more details as they are revealed!
