House Mecha Updates

Greetings! Just like I promised I've done quite a bit of updating to all the older house mechas. If you noticed anything weird in the past couple of house using one of the ones that got updated it was because I had to manually go in and adjust them. Everything should be setup properly now but if you notice anything I missed let me know on the forums in the thread for these DN's and I'll get it fixed!

A bunch of the older effects were either gimmiked in a way, like the Runehawk healing effect on the FA needing a random chance of greater than 90 as well as being below a certain amount of HP, or were setup in a really weird and convoluted way that didn't really equal out to what was intended in the coding. Now all 3 types have effects that more closely feel like the intent of the house itself and have weapons in every slot which should help out in terms of overall power of the mecha themselves.

In addition to these updates I also swapped the Advanced Wolfblade Head Weapon with the Body Weapon. All that did was make it equal to the others in that you can now customize the Head Weapon without losing the effect that the mecha was designed around. I got a request to do so when I was in there tinkering with the older mecha and it made sense to with how the other advanced versions were setup.

I also did some poking around in the labyrinth quest to see if I could figure out why people were getting stuck on walls randomly. The quest isn't setup like any other quest that we do so it took quite a bit of tinkering but it shouldn't catch you on walls anymore. I wouldn't suggest purposefully running into the same wall over and over because I can't guarantee that won't cause it to still happen, but you shouldn't get caught randomly on the edge of a wall anymore.

As for other news, the birthday mecha and items for Maegwyn will stay up until Monday and then disappear for another year. Grab them while you can! Next week I'll also be back with another quest. I'm hopefully going to be able to finish up the last quest in the mini Ebilcorp questline. (When Soluna North is ready they'll all be there in case you've missed any.) We're still working hard to get that area done and ready but we don't know when exactly that will be since Lyris is still working on some art and I still have a bunch of small things and a bunch of quests to build for it.

I also wanted to let you all in on a bit of a secret that will be happening in September. (That's the plan anyway.) AQ, DF, and MQ are all going to be having a crossover event. No, this isn't the anniversary event or anything like that. This is just something I had the privilege of writing to do something fun across all the games. I'm hoping you all will look forward to seeing it as I'm trying to do something really fun for it.

I hope you all have a good weekend!
