n00b Herd system
Dungeon Party now offers a guild system, which we call n00b Herd.
Creating a n00b Herd costs 5000 HM.
A n00b Herd has a name (unique) and a 4 letter "Tag" (unique).
n00b Herds will allow you to gather under a single banner and to proudly wear your Tag during all games in which you take part.
And there is more . . . . n00b Herd v n00b Herd !
A n00b Herd with 5 members or more may take part in n00b Herd v n00b Herd matches, enabled by the patch.
For the moment, to take part in a nHvnH match, you can only have 4 players in your group (matches will only be 4v4, but that will change soon).
At least half the team must belong to the n00b Herd of the group leader. He may then register the team for a nHvnH match using the button in the group window.
Once registered, you must wait for the system to find another n00b Herd with a ranking close to your own.
The match then begins straightaway.
All nHvnH are played on a randomly chosen, official map over a maximum of 3 rounds.
The winners score nHvnH points for the n00b Herd leader and the defeated side lose nHvnH points for the n00b Herd leader. It really is a n00b Herd which takes-on another n00b Herd although you may invite other player into your group.
You can consult the nHvnH on the rankings page, which now displays a specific n00b Herd icon.
Good luck to all the n00b Herds !
New character : The Bard !
The bard is a new Dungeon Party hero. He is not easy to play as his effectiveness depends greatly on the make-up of his team.
He is very much a master of Buff and Debuff, with his shouts and screams able to strengthen himself or his team mates. He can also make himself quite a nuisance on a range going from troublesome to irritating ^^
With this character we have introduced a new type of spell : On/Off
These spells can be switched on and off whenever the player desires. However, they consume Mana from the time they are switched on. It's therefore up to you to work out when to turn off a spell, without forgetting that the cooldown period starts when the spell is switched off !
The “Cleaner” spells, especially "IDEAL TEMPERATURE" (which can now eliminate alterations as well as buffs and which also work on your team mates) now become key spells because they can turn an “On/Off” spell off.
The bard's songs are dangerous and so you must learn how to use them or control them !
