U42.4 surprise patch!

(There is some things left out because they are minor and such but the link to this patch is above)

 

          Reaper:;

- Creatures in Reaper now have less damage resistance all around, ramping up slowly as the skulls increase.

- Creatures in reaper now have +4 saves versus spells

- Creatures now have better spell pen in reaper (they have wizard past lives lol)

- Incorporeality is nerfed as much as blur and displacement in reaper mode. 

- Charmed monsters lose their reaper damage bonus when charmed.

- Reaper's Defenses are increased

- New reapers: Some in all skulls, some more in r6+ (I've only seen two in heroics running the spectrum of skulls)

- Lost souls are now tied to the party size and the skulls of the dungeons. Less souls for smaller party in lower skulls of reaper difficulty, higher for bigger parties in higher skulls.

- Fear reapers damage now scales better in higher level of dungeon delving.

     Experience:;

 

- Bravery Bonus is now permanent and split to hard and elite streak. You get 50% of the 100% bonus if you do hard but can get the other 100% by doing it (the quest that is) again on elite. Which means you do not need to do 5 quests to get your full bonus and now you do not need to pause your BB so the bravery marshals are gone to unemployment.

 

- the BB was previously 70% of base quest xp, but now is 100%

 

- Daily bonus is now at 25% rather than its previous 20% in heroic and epic is now 30%

 

- First time bonuses have decreased though due to the above changes as follows: Normal: 25% to 20%

                                                                                                                                                   Hard: 40% to 20%

                                                                                                                                                   Elite: 80% to 45%

                                                                                                                                                   Reaper: 120% to 95%

Meaning That xp for the heroic side will be relatively the same as it were if you do the maths, but in epics will be a slight increase in general.

 

-  Optional Experience rewards are now ransackable and the only way to reset them is through a true, racial, iconic or epic reincarnation.

 

- In heroics you can not enter a dungeon if you are 4 levels above base challenge rating of a dungeon, and 6 levels in epic. The wording they used for this it seems base challenge rating is the level of the dungeon at normal difficulty. Still Epic leveled characters can not enter heroic leveled dungeons.

 

- Reaper experience now follows the rules of normal experience! Examples!

    A level 14 character gets full experience running a level 12!

   A level 15 running a level 12 quests gets full experience but not bravery bonus

   A level 16 character running a level 12 quests gets no BB and a -10% over level penalty

   A level 17 can not enter the level 12 quest as they are more than 4 levels above the quest level.

 

-  The following quests had their xp slightly decreased: Grim and Barrett

                                                                                                    Jungle of Khyber
