Helping Where We Can

Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by Super Typhoon Rai, which struck the Philippines last Friday. We know that many of our players and some of our team members in the Philippines have been personally affected by this.

On behalf of you and all the players in our Artix Entertainment videogame community, we've made a donation of $5,016 USD (250,000 Philippine pesos) to the Philippine Red Cross, to help in the relief effort.

Be safe and know that we're thinking of you.* We hope this contribution helps. And if you, your friends, or your family are in a position to help, we encourage you to do what you can. You can donate to relief efforts through the official Philippine Red Cross website.

*Just in case it takes a while for power to be restored in some areas, we're going to leave all our holiday events up for a couple extra weeks — we won't pull Frostval events in our games until after January.

Eidolon Revival Specials

Star Date: 21st September 3012

Phantasmal DOOM, Eidolon mecha revival!

Once again doom strikes Soluna City... the Hunter Eidolon mecha series has been by far one of the most interesting series in the game.

 So I was really excited to see these new buffs designed by Blues, they increase the efficiency of the mecha against both ghost and normal enemies! Here’s Vivi with the new specials:           

Deals 150% damage 
+30% damage on ghosts 
Applies an effect that drains EP (they lose, you gain) equal to Level/2 rounded down that lasts 4 turns 
Chance for a 1.5x EP DOT 

Deals 150% damage 
+10% damage on ghosts 
Captures weakened ghosts 
If the enemy is not captured, chance to lower bonus by 40 for 3 turns and the enemy loses 15% of their max EP 

Deals 150% damage 
First use of the shoulders gives the enemy the Psionic Link effect (which does nothing). The second use replaces Psionic Link with an Energy Drain effect. Each turn the enemy loses 75% of their EP Regen and you gain it. 

Deals 150% damage 
High crit chance on ghosts 
Against ghosts, gives +40 boost for 5 turns 

Deals 150% damage 
If you have any ghosts captured, consumes 1 ghost and heals 40% of your max HP and 20% of your max EP 

Thanks Vivi, not only have these new specials been added but also the mecha is now color customizable!

Hope you guys enjoy the release, watch out for scurvy gremlins, and I leave you with doom pirates!

Oh the memories...

Hello everyone!  I can't believe it has only been three years.  So much has happened, it is amazing to think about the last three years...   I remember working on the early development of MechQuest.  I had just moved to Florida to work in the Underground secret Lab full time...  Those days were so hectic.  My wife and I had just had a new baby and were completely uprooting ourselves to come here.  It was very tough.  Between the hardships and struggles of a new family,  I was also experiencing the stress of starting a new job and moving from a very familiar place.  Things happened so fast,  I didn't even have time to realize what was happening!  

When we launched MechQuest,  we had a starship and a pizza shop and 5 Shadowscythe enemies...
Three years later,  we have over 5000 items, 1000 mechs, 400+ quests, an Artbook,  new Soundtrack CD,  Starships,  house wars,  Facebook connectivity... etc..  I could keep listing stuff...  but you get the idea.  MQ is HUGE.  

The MechQuest team is very special to me. We have some of the most talented people I have ever been lucky enough to work with. Our team is small,  but everyone on it is BIG.  I am so proud of what we have achieved in these 3 years.  I know the next three years will be awesome!

Happy Birthday MECHQUEST!

Tiger Master Released!

Greetings everyone!  It seems like ages since I have written the MechQuest Design Notes!  When Korin asked me if I could oversee release while he was away,  I nearly jumped out of my seat with excitement!  I am honored to bring you this week's release!  

Anyway,  this week,  we have the Tiger Master on Planet Yokai!  The way to his shrine may only be revealed to a true master of the various Yokai fighting styles!  Can you figure out the mystery of the gongs and challenge the powerful Tiger?  Watch out!  Tiger style is all about hitting hard...  and then harder...  and then even harder!  Can you counter the awesome power of the Tiger?

The Tiger shrine quest breaks from the recent Yokai mold.  You will not have to fight any waves of enemies before entering the Tiger Shrine,  Instead you will have to go to the shrine and solve the riddle of the gongs in order to locate the secret entrance and challenge the Tiger Master!  Also,  we added an awesome new Fast Travel button that will appear in the Yokai camp after you have gained 100% control of the Dojo.  This fast Travel button will instantly transport you to the Dojo.   Yay!  no more random encounters!

The MechQuest team is going at maximum overdrive for the next few weeks!  We still have this month's SC Monthly mecha,  the 4th of July mecha, and the Yokai finale in the works...

I also had a lot of fun play-testing the One-Eyed Doll Live Event in AQ Wolrds this week!  It is really spectacular and One-Eyed Doll rocks!  This is my favorite AQW release yet!  (I am admittedly biased towards all Mythsong related events).  Anyway, It is definitely worth checking out!  Remember tonight at 8pm Server time!

I hope everyone enjoys tonight's Yokai release!  I had a lot of fun making the Gongs :)
