A mess of new weapons in the Hidden Tower and beyond
  • Posted by SirCabbage

The Hidden Tower has reopened in a rather triumphant way, with two new weapons. One of these weapons is fairly par for the course- but one seems like prime fodder for a downgrade.

The two weapons are the weaker 15 million np 'Gemmed Sword of Light'



and the crazy 'Focus of Imminent Destruction'



At this point as with anything TJST does, if backlash is too heavy than likely they will downgrade these items. At this point it likely is a gamble as to if you should buy. Maybe since these items cost users so much they might find a different solution- it will be up to you to decide if you buy them.

Beyond that, as you would have seen through the plot posting there has been another weapon released during the plot. The 'blazing embers' are still exhibiting the same "likely will be downgraded" stats of the other free weapons.




Interestingly you may have also nothing the forth weapon added recently- the 'Sword of Malum'. In a rather awesome turn of events TJST has released the first one-player only battledome item for an opponent in a very long time... (though I am almost positive it will likely become a plot prize later)



I do wonder what all this could mean for the battledome. On the one hand TNT clearly has a renewed interest in the battledome for the first time since long before the changeover... on the other hand it is clear they have no idea what they are doing when it comes to power balance.

TJST has overseen some of the biggest crashes in battledome history. The impact of the massive wave of unpunished and unremoved dupe super attack peas driving their prices to laughable levels.... Their continued insistence in keeping charity corner going despite it being terrible for the economy when not tightly controlled leading to the Wand of the Dark Faerie dropping far below a reasonable price point... I am torn, on the one hand I love that the battledome is back on the agenda, on the other I do have to worry about the impact all this uncertainty will have to the community.

I'm sure you know but:

Gemmed Sword of Light: 8 Light & 8 Water (16 total).

Focus of Imminent Destruction: 5 of each icon (35 total). 30% miss chance. Also is only active during these hours (AM and PM NST): 12:00-1:59, 4:00-5:59, 8:00-9:59. Between these times it won't do anything.

Hey, an interesting discovery was made about the BD's code in regards to dark icons:

Maybe a silly question, but how is so much known about Sword of Malum if it isn't even released yet?

I'd say Charity Corner's actually been good for the neo-economy overall. It really helped redistribute neopoints on the site, and because of the increase in availability of r99s now rare items are both more affordable for the common neopian, and more available so that those who are uber rich can actually purchase them without breaking the bank.

I'm glad that Jumpstart is taking an interest in the battledome. Ultimately I would like a system where there's a hitpoint increase for plot opponents/for events and such, but not for the normal challengers because over time that would be a pain since the battledome's kind of a daily now.
