  1. Yes, 4 shared slots, but even that is not enough!


    Torchlight 2 and Diablo 2 stash mods have at least 100, and the Diablo Pluggy mod has something like 1000, with buttons to skip in 10s/100s. So I put each major item type every 10 stash spaces apart.


    I mean the game has at least 100 uniques, and each can have varying rolls, and the devs should know, no one wants to dump any uniques! So logically they should provide at least double the needed space to hold all of them. Then you have rares...

    Each stash space is tiny, in terms of memory, so I don't know what the deal is. It's 2015!


    Not a fan of these old school inventory tetris systems. I'd rather have a folder system with thumbnails of item, with columns to sort them out by any catergory you want, with filtering and a search engine....

  2. Well I tried MP tonight with a random group, oh man it's a lot harder! More HP and monster damage.

    Plus it was in verteran mode I think. So more hereos = more loot and XP

    Yeah you can do quest togther, and get experience level up etc.

    Only thing is some quests have choices, so only one person can choose with an NPC, and your stuck with his decision


    Feels a little too rushed.

    So I think MP is better for end game content runs

  3. Lots of fun!, And a few crashes....


    Just figured Occultist using bloody pox with disease spread + fevered rage modifier, with the crow minion/summon adding lightning reflect, along with reflect gear = mobs with reduced health moving and attacking really fast, plus 50% more damage rom the fevered rage, and killing themselves quick, plus the bloody pox DOT :ninja2:


    Just add some more defense/heal from another class and your good to go. Plus the crow summon heals you as well.

    Saw some skill that reflect 100% of damage for a short time while you heal - looks good :)

    Plus a few damage auras

  4. Multiplay mode thing stretch goal reached, as well as female character model

    Mercs and pets



    Ai system






    As for character building, we’re much much more free and much more open. There are let’s say 3 layers of powers in Umbra.. actually 4 in some ways. You can, for each level, affect points into the four attributes, which are close to the basic Diablo stats. Strength, dexterity, constitution, and magic. Each of these points have an impact on your character; if you have a lot of STR you’ll be able to stun enemies when you hit them. with blunt weapons, for example.


    If you have a lot of dexterity you’ll be able to dodge better. Constitution will increase your armor, that sort of thing. Every point you actually put into a stat will really affect your performance.


    We also have passive skills, which can be something very classical like movement speed, more gold find, more magic find, etc. And we have several trees where you can assign points, and the more you add to the skills the more powers you will unlock. At some point you will be able to get new skills in your spellbar. Active skills you can use, I mean. Basically you can use six active skills, but one passive skill unlocks new skills. Dual wielding two-handed weapons, for instance.

    Mercenaries, for instance. You can use a skill to hire more mercs at once, but they’ll take a higher percentage of the gold you find. And you’ll be able to do many other things with passive skills.

    The active skills are looted as books, just like in Diablo 1. I really like that finding skill mechanics. You’ll loot them according to how you play. So if you use a lot of fire skills, you’ll most likely find more books with fire skills.

    We also add the Apocalyptic Form on top of the three layers of power. We’ll talk about that later.

  5. Finally got around to reading all the details of the game -

    This does seem like a Sacred style game with an open world, and generated dungeons.

    Has time of day.

    This quote says it all :lol:

    We are mixing the freedom of Skyrim, the action style of Diablo 3, the ambience of Diablo 1, the graphical power of Crysis, and adding our very own features on top of all that to come up with a unique and powerful gameplay!


    It seems like it will have a pet as per Torchlight series, that can fight and sell loot, but you can also customise it.

    Also the weapon system has some interesting things - an armour penertration value


    • Damage: Minimum and maximum amount of damage the weapon will deal
    • Armor Penetration: The amount of armor ignored when damage is calculated
    • Critical Strike Bonus: Bonus chance to deliver a very powerful strike
    • Range: Range of the weapon, allowing you to hit your enemies before they can come close enough.
    • Cleaving Angle: Each strike will hit all enemies in a cone of Cleaving Angle in front of you
    • Cleaving Factor: The percentage of damage enemies will suffer when hit by a cleaving attack
    • Magic Effect Bonus: Magic effects will be improved by this percentage – A great way to improve your gear at higher levels!


    very cool! I also hope one can customise the character physically, it would be a first for an ARPG...

    We love asymmetric armor, and we want you to be able to customize your gear down to the finest details! You will be able to equip different shoulders and arm protection on the left and right side of your character, bringing a great number of personalization options!

  6. reading through some of their Devlogs, it appears the game is both open world and has random generated levels, including the decals, textures and details in the level

  7. Well it has 3 resources, but that doesn't mean 3 base classes.

    Those forms I believe are the ultimate powers


    So you can still cast spells or not, while wielding dual swords with summons and have one of the ultimate power forms




    Apocalyptic Form: According to your play style, you will develop special powers for your character, changing their abilities and look. Fierce melee warrior may gain a third arm to equip with a new weapon; a fire caster will have their skin turn into lava and heal from fire. Even wings and horns might appear on your character depending on your actions!

    Quality of action, loot and personalization are keys for a good Hack & Slash game. By mixing these three elements, we designed the Apocalyptic Form feature, that will allow you to hand pick “mutations” for your character, such as wings or horns, and create a powerful war form for your character, affecting both your look and play style.
