New in Update 2.3: Legendary Gear and Legend Level Bonuses

First, if you haven't read about the new Daily Dungeon, feel free to do so here:
http://dashquest.tinytitanstudios.com/2016/04/daily-dungeon.html


In the new Daily Dungeon, you'll receive prizes when you reach 30% and 60% of your target distance, and when you reach the final target, you'll be awarded with a new type of item: Legendary Gear. You'll be able to view your collection of these via a new tab on the Gear Shop panel.

Legendary Gear is special in a couple of ways. First, it can be upgraded. Let's look at one of our new Legendary weapons, Ghost Knight's Sabre. When you initially find this sword, it will add 25 Crit Damage, +1% Summon Damage, and have a damage value of 54. It's roughly equivalent to a very strong level 10 weapon:



The next time you're awarded this sword, you'll receive a better version of it, with better attribute and damage values. Each piece of Legendary Gear has ten variations. The final variation of Ghost Knight's Sabre grants you 250 Crit Damage, +10% Summon Damage, and grants a 5% Instant Kill Chance, which unlocks as a special third attribute once the weapon is maxed out. The sword's damage also increments.



How are these items leveled up? A different Legendary Gear piece will be available each day with the new Dungeon, and each time you're awarded an item you've already acquired, you'll get the next iteration of it. You'll be able to check which item is being rewarded on a given day right from the Daily Dungeon launch window. Be sure to check the Dungeon each day to see if your favorite item is available!

The second thing that's unique about Legendary Gear is that your ownership of this gear won't be reset if you gain a Legend Level. If you have a maxed out Ghost Knight's Sabre and choose to reset and gain a new Legend Level, you'll still have that maxed out sword after you've spent your Perk Points. The idea behind this is for those players who enjoy the Legend system, you'll have weapons, armor or accessories that will not only make the trip with you, but can be made increasingly better.

With all of that said, Legendary Gear is among the most powerful gear in the game, so there's one final note that needs to be clarified. Only one piece of Legendary Gear may be equipped at a time. If you wish to switch to a different Legendary weapon or armor, you'll need to disable your currently equipped one first.

On the subject of Legend Mode, we received a lot of feedback from players on the virtues (or lack thereof) of this recent addition. Some people love it, some people hate it; others were open to the idea but felt it needed to be a bit richer. We agreed with that sentiment, so we've added in passive Legend Level bonuses with update 2.3. You'll receive stat bonuses for each Legend Level you acquire in addition to the Perk Points you'll be able to spend, and these will also carry over each time you choose to do a Legend reset. There are currently 10 levels of Legend Bonuses, but we'll be looking at adding more going forward.

Look for Legendary Gear and Legend Level Bonuses when the Daily Dungeon launches with update 2.3!

    1. We're expecting the subreddit guys to find a way to do it in two-and-a-half hours any day now. ;) It's definitely designed to be a long term endeavor, Beckman, something that can be gradually done over the course of multiple Legend resets and to hopefully build interest for a new Dungeon every day. We've already talked about at least one alternate means of getting this stuff, so who knows?

    2. TItan, Hi, I lost my items when I turned legendary, to undo it? I read the option to be legendary but I would not miss the main items and not start all over again!

  2. Hehe! Yeah well that's a good thing. Just what this game needed imo.
    Keeps atleast myself eager to log on to hack n slash whenever I got a second to spend.
    Looking forward to follow the progress and future updates :)

  5. Not a fan of the white flash every time a full charge is released. Any thoughts of making this something that can be turned off in options. It's rather annoying for lack of better words. Thanks, love the game!

    1. No worries, Conquer! Glad you found it. The screen flash effect was disabled inadvertently a couple of updates ago and the result was that some players had never seen it before, let alone realized it could be toggled.

  8. Any word on the daily login quest being fixed? I also am unable to complete the epic store/purchase quest despite having bought an item. It doesn't even recognize me having access.

    1. Still trying to figure out what's up with logins. The achievement is still giving numerous problems to some, where others are finally getting it (myself included). We're adding in a check on the Epic Shop tab that should fix the issue with the achievement on that one.

    1. Hi, Luiz! The MP Pot Recipe should be available at the shop located in Gloom Caverns on the World Map (Story Mode).

  11. Lich cannot be physically touched with Hydra's Fang equipped. Too short of range? I tried increasing my size with an accessory. Didn't do anything. (Not sure if size affects range) - what's up with this?

    1. Hey, Chris! We'll have a look at it; too late in our build cycle to address it now, but we'll see if we can get something in for next. It's less likely an issue with the weapon's range and more likely an issue with the Lich's positioning and collider. We rearranged all of those objects manually a couple of updates ago to help performance and we've been having to adjust things here and there since.

    1. What are you seeing specifically? We're rolling out some save system backups and if there are problems with data loading we definitely want to hear about it.

  14. Hey tiny Titan, thanks for the update with the daily legend items. Really awesome.
    Is there a list of all 10 items with lvl 1 and maxed stats? Would be awesome to see what item is the best for your playstyle. I would love to refresh the items in the daily challenge to farm for an item to get it to lvl 10 without so much rng. (100.000 gold or 500 epic coins?) or complete refresh the dungeon to farm an other item on the same day?
    i would really love to get a legendary pet, I love them :p

    1. Hey, Benjamin, thanks! We're not done with the dungeon yet. You may definitely see some changes to how things work or some other tweaks.

      We don't have a list to share, but I believe one of the users over at the Dash Quest subreddit has put a list together of Legendary Gears. Go have a look! :)

  16. Today is the 3rd time I have logged on to see that the legendary item I got the day before is missing. Today I caught it before reset so decided to try again, I didn't quite finish the dungeon and when I checked time till refresh I found that I had a 10 hour wait. Was this changed from the 1 hour previously or is it part of the same bug?

    It's frustrating to lose the items particularly when it's such a wait to get it again. Fortunately today's isn't a big deal, other than for being a completionist. (Today was a level 2 for me)

    1. Just want to try and understand this a bit better. You got the item the day before; did you take a look in the gear shop and see that the item was unlocked? I'm trying to establish if the game awarded you the item and then somehow relocked it. That's how I'm reading this but I'm not entirely sure that's the case.

      The cooldown times and buyouts on the dungeon can indeed get *substantial* depending on the distance of the previous run. The bug with the clock was that it wasn't showing the hour column until 2.3.1.

      If the dungeon item doesn't get unlocked after being rewarded and you're on version 2.3.1, open the dungeon window again. We added a check on the window that should force the item to unlock as a workaround until we can figure out why people aren't being properly rewarded consistently.

      Delete
    2. 90% sure I checked and it was there. Today I did the run and when I saw 10 hours I forced the game closed and re opened it to find that it was still at 10+ hours.

      Delete
    3. Hmm. Both of those aspects are definitely concerning. Zsomething, are you on iOS or Android, and are you running build 2.3.1 yet? It just went live on iOS yesterday, but I know I've spoken to a few Android users who hadn't updated yet, either.

      Delete
    4. iOS, and I updated on the 19th. (So says my update history).

      Delete
    5. Can you confirm the game is running version 2.3.1 from the bottom left of the title screen?

      There should be an additional check on the completed dungeon now while we investigate the reward issues. If you do complete a dungeon but the reward doesn't unlock in the gear shop, open the dungeon launch window. The game should check on the item and unlock it at that point.

    1. Wouldn't expect you to be seeing issues on an S4, Dustin. I know you've said you reinstalled, but have you checked to ensure you're fully updated? I would suggest checking for an Android update as well, and also clearing your Dash Quest cache in the application manager.

      Delete
  18. Hi, I am just curious, can you inform us of, or is there a way to check the status bonuses gained with each legend level? Thanks!
