First, if you haven't read about the new Daily Dungeon, feel free to do so here:
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.
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!
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.
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!
