Hey folks. Please be aware that we are currently moving offices, so the dev team will not be able to respond as quickly to issues on PTS as we usually try to do. We didn't want to hold back PTS any longer, but we likely will not be able to patch for several days. Once we're back from the move, we'll also take a look at addressing an issue preventing Mac users from accessing PTS. Please bear with us in the meantime as you explore the Crystal Combat Update.

Geode Topside Adventure Worlds

  • 3 new worlds can be found on the Atlas linked to the Geode Hub – a U8, U9 and U10 version of the Geode Topside Worlds.
  • The Geode Topside Worlds have 3 biomes – the Cerise Sandsea, Hollow Dunes, and Weathered Wasteland.
  • 1-star and 5-star dungeons can be found throughout these biomes.
  • Outposts can also be found throughout the biomes – these offer several Outpost Adventures and can be used to loot collect unwanted items.
  • Cornerstones cannot be summoned in the Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.
  • Veridium and Nitro-Glitterine ore can be found scattered throughout the Geode Topside. Nitro-Glitterine is rarer than Veridium.
  • The Geode Topside is affected by Daily Bonuses.
  • Recipes have been added to the Crystallogy workbench that require materials from the Geode Topside.
    • PTS Note: These costs for these recipes are not final, and will see some further review before the update goes out.

5-Star Dungeons

  • 5 Star Dungeons are a new type of dungeon found exclusively in Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.
  • Enter the dungeon and find the Dark Heart within – interact with it to spawn Cursed Skulls and bosses.
  • Defeat all the Cursed Skulls and bosses within the time limit to get an extra reward!

Light and Dark

  • 2 new stats have been introduced – Light and Darkness.
  • Light can be found on Crystal Equipment and Cosmic Gems. Light cannot be removed from these items.
  • Darkness is only found on monsters inhabiting the Geode Topside Adventure Worlds. Light is required to overcome their Darkness and damage them.

Gems

  • All new lesser gems of Shadow Rarity and above now have stats consistent with either Fierce or Arcane Gems. Fierce Gems always grant Physical Damage, while Arcane Gems always grant Magical Damage.
  • A Fierce Gem can never reroll in to the Magic Damage stat, and an Arcane Gem can never reroll in to the Physical Damage stat.
  • Gems can no longer crack while leveling. Because of this, Jade Clovers can no longer be used while leveling gems. Jade Clovers can still be converted in to Glistening Horseshoes on the Adventurer’s Crafting Bench.
  • Gems now have a higher chance to both naturally level up and double level up while leveling.

Cosmic Gems

  • A new type of gem has appeared – Cosmic Gems!
  • Lesser Cosmic Gems come only from Cosmic Gem Boxes, and are not available in the Gem Boxes from Prime Worlds.
  • Empowered Cosmic Gems can drop from existing Empowered Gem Boxes.
  • 4 new abilities have been introduced for Empowered Cosmic Gems:
    • Berserk Battler – Damaging enemies causes a frenzied state, adding a small increase to attack speed and Light. Continued damage to enemies extends the frenzied state until it causes a berserk state, greatly increasing attack speed and Light.
    • Flower Power – Taking damage has a chance to spawn a blast flower which will decay and explode, damaging nearby enemies.
    • Empyrean Barrier – Periodically applies a shield that reduces incoming damage. When the shield is destroyed it explodes, damaging nearby enemies.
    • Vampirian Vanquisher – Dealing critical hits has a chance to increase movement speed and cause the next hit to leech health.
  • Summoning Amberine on the Rally of Heroes will offer an adventure to find 5 cosmic gem boxes in any Geode Topside World. Amberine’s spawn rate and rarity have been adjusted to match other similar Heroes.

Crystal Rarity

  • Crystal Hats, Faces, and Weapons can now drop from lair and dungeon chests in Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.
  • There are 3 tiers of Crystal rarity – Crystal 1, 2, and 3. Crystal 2 equipment can only be found in U9+, and Crystal 3 equipment can only be found in U10.
  • Crystal equipment can have 1-5 stars – the star level of Crystal items can be upgraded at the Forge.
  • Stellar and Crystal equipment return pearls when deconstructed.
  • Crystal equipment drops with a new Crystal style for each equipment slot.
  • Magic Find works differently for Crystal rarity. While higher values of Magic Find will still increase the chance of finding Crystal rarity items, even players with low Magic Find values should regularly find equipment of Crystal rarity.

New Expertise Threads

  • A new Expertise Thread to explain gems has been added to the Expertise tab of the Adventures Activities. This is available for all players above level 10. Complete the Gems thread for experience, a Stellar Mask, Gemsly (a new rare Ally), and a new Badge.
  • A new Expertise Thread to assist players access the Geode Topside is now available at 5,000 PR.
    • PTS Note: Some of these steps are PTS only.

Atlas

  • The Atlas can now be accessed from anywhere through the Atlas hotkey (defaults to CTRL+A).
  • The Atlas is still physically accessible in the Trove Hub.
  • The Atlas has also replaced the Trove Portal in the Geode Hub.

Store

  • New additions to the Store:
    • The Augmented Maniac Pack contains a tradable Sun and Moon Stellar Aura, a tradable Tome: Empowered Gem Box, 5 Class Gem Keys, 20 Empowered Gem Boxes, 200 Gem Booster Boxes, 20 Lustrous Gem Boxes, and 20 Builder’s Superior Focuses.
    • Dragon Coin Boosts – these 50, 100, or 250 Dragon Coin Boosts will double all the Dragon Coins received from any source until 50, 100, or 250 coins have been doubled. Note that these boosts cannot be stacked.
    • Greater Geodian Topside Caches are now available in the store on the Geode tab! Get valuable Geodian Topside crafting materials, gem augments, or (rarely) tradable mounts, allies, tomes, and costumes. Buy 33 and earn a Glowing Geodian Topside Cache, which always contains a rare result from the Greater Geodian Topside Caches!
  • The Amperium Dragon Pack, Resistor Dragon Pack, and Greater Neon Caches have been retired from the store. They may return later on special occasions.
  • The store now has a New tab, where newly available products will appear.
  • Jade Clovers have been removed from most areas of the store and replaced with an appropriate amount of Glistening Horseshoes instead. The Jade Clover Tome is still available.

Star Bar

  • Reach for the Stars! The Starbar can now be filled MULTIPLE TIMES each day, up to 5 total.
  • The first time the Starbar is filled each day will grant:
    • Non-Patrons: 500 cubits and 500 flux
    • Patrons: 1500 cubits and 1500 flux
  • Each subsequent time filling it will grant:
    • Non-Patrons: 100 cubits and a Starglint Pinata
    • Patrons: 300 cubits and 2 Starglint Pinatas
  • Note that this will only take effect on the day after the patch.

Dragons

  • 2 new Dragons have been added to Trove!
  • Jhorondir, Arms of the Goddess can be crafted by acquiring a Dormant Lightspear Dragon Egg and a Dormant Darkshield Dragon Egg and crafting them together at the Dragon Crucible. This dragon can also be acquired using a dragon effigy.
