Alter Aeon server updates for Dec 13, 15
Switch thief shadow bind, shadow strike, reduce antidote, and cloak of
fear to use modern exp handling functions, instead of crap custom code.
Expect differences to exp and a few rounds of rebalancing after we
collect data on the new exp distribution.
After discussions on the bovine channel, a new level/exp policy has been
decided regarding the maximum exp to level, practice costs, and caps.
The details of the change are roughly:
– The normal exp cap is now limited to 250k exp. Since the maximum level
cost is limited, the exp cap should also be limited.
– The maximum practice cost has been reduced to 16 million. This should
help slightly encourage people to buy practices with experience instead
– The maximum level cost has been reduced to 1.8 billion, and will be
split into 30 microlevels of 60 million experience each.
This new design should help clean up some long term balance issues and
allow us to add higher levels without having to rework the setup every
time. We hope.
