    Alpha 9.7 Released

    With every new version we are getting closer to Alpha 10. There will be 3 major releases until that, and probably 2 minor ones. Here is the change log for a current Alpha 9.7 version:

    •  NEW: Player can be controlled by mouse
    •  NEW: Added new identify system. Items will be automatically identified after some time. System is divided into 3 broad groups. 
        Identifying as pure spellcasters, identifying as hybrid spellcasters and identifying as non spellcatsres. Usually player will identify items by reading scroll of identify or
        by donning items (as mean of gambling with RNG) when player will sense if item is cursed or blessed.
        Now there is a third method(s): 
      • As a non spellcaster player can equip item and:

        • if item is weapon, it will be identified after 15 defeated enemies with it
        • if item is armor, it will be identified after item gets hit for a certain amount of time. Weightier items need more time to be identified than one cloth armor
      • As a pure spellcaster (player with major path in Arcana or Sacrals), player don't need to wear item, it has slight non cumulative chance each turn that it will be identified 0.1%*major path level/turn
      •  As a hybrid spellcaster (player with minor path in Arcana or Sacrals), player don't need to wear item, it has slight minor non cumulative chance each turn that it will be identified 0.1%*minor path level/turn
      • also if the item is armor and it gets hit, it has a slight non-cumulative chance to be identified (2%/hit)

    •  NEW: Trigger popup shows fatigue cost of each trigger activated
