World Boss fighting in TOS

World bosses in Tree of Savior spawn at random times which I have not figured out as of yet. But today I uploaded a nice video so you can get an idea about what these boss fights are like. These are very similar to what people from Ragnarok Online would know as MVP bosses. From what I've seen these bosses don't reset and can be dragged pretty much all around the map. Unlike the normal monsters roaming around the map which will reset and walk back to the location they spawned at. These world bosses have massive amount of health and take pretty long to kill. I actually got a really nice item off the boss I killed.

So you most likely are wondering what legendary item drop I got from this boss and I have a picture to show you as well as I'll explain how it works.
This was the item which dropped from the boss. The way the toy hammer works is every 10 hits the Area effect which you see the boss do in the video that surrounds him triggers. With the amount of magic attack the hammer has it does around 550 fire damage in a circle around you meaning that you can gather groups of monsters together and use the 10th hit to do an explosion. But the damage is fire element so when you get into mage tower you will want a different weapon because you will not do good damage with it at that point. The base magic will be good for quite a few levels but later you will find yourself replacing it. And it can also be increased Arde Dagger which I'll show for reference:
Because when I ran the level 90 dungeon I also got the dagger as well. Both end up being a pretty nice combo since the dagger increases fire damage as well. You could also use the toy hammer with a shield its up to you how you want to use it.

But before I travel too much off topic I have seen three different types of bosses. The first was the one I shot the video of in mausoleum chapel 3rd floor which was mostly melee aside from his AoE that he does. On floor one of mausoleum chapel a ranged world boss with a bow pretty much hits like a truck and does arrow rain. I didn't get to record that one because the server was pretty much a lag fest and the bosses arrow rain was pretty much slaughtering everyone and I got killed a few times just because of pulling aggro. In the first floor of the mausoleum (there's another mausoleum at level 81+) I saw a magic caster world boss I didn't get to really video that one either but that one was pure murder I spent more time dead on the floor then doing damage.

We aren't too sure how the distribution for the loot table for the boss is but there's a few things we do actually know which will be helpful for when you do a boss. People who do damage to the boss but die during the fight that resets the participation you did in doing damage. So you want to avoid dieing because if you do a lot of the damage but die you have to go and do more damage again to be considered for drops. The loot comes in the way of a cube which is opened for a RNG chance at something good. Most of the items that come out aside from weapons are mostly used for vendor money. Example Talt <- Vendors for 5k if you sell it to anyone for less then your doing it wrong. But people do that pretty often because they don't check the vendor prices. Silver bar is 30k vendor as well. Some of it can also be used for high level recipes but never sell those items for less then vendor price.

We don't exactly know whether healers get participation based on healing. It was brought up in the forums but no one could give a straight answer about it but if your party does enough damage you should get rewards. We did make suggestions to the developers about doing something for healers if they can't find a party. But we also don't know if the boss has a limit on payload like for example the top 20 people getting loot ect. Cause it doesn't seem like every single person gets loot.

Tree of Savior Hacks & Exploits

Even though the game is currently still in closed beta people might be wondering whether Tree of Savior currently has any hacks or exploits. The answer to that question is yes. Currently these are the hacks that people are using in Tree of Savior:

  • Teleportation to any position on the map including inside walls and underground.
  • Record waypoints and Teleport to custom or downloaded waypoints
  • Fly Hack
  • Zoom Hack
  • Speed Hack
  • Semi God mode (works with melee damage only) 
There are also bot programs that the game currently has which people are using. The speed hacks specifically are controlled client side but the game itself has checks for file modification which is why people who are using the exploit are editing the games memory using cheat engine or inject style hacks. Unpacking and repacking the files will not work and will break the game. Hopefully IMCgames knows about these exploits and patches them so speed hacking isn't possible by using cheat engine or other hacking programs. It's never wise for game companies to control speed or positioning of the character from clientside files. These should be controlled server side only to prevent players from injecting client commands. While I can't really see a purpose to the teleport hacking and stuff in a game like this I'm sure it added unneeded stress and lag to the server when people are sending teleporting commands. This would also explain why we lag or disconnect in certain maps and around other players. I've seen people teleporting in cities.


Tree of Savior Experience

With experience gain in Tree of Savior it works similar to how monsters got changed later on in Ragnarok Online. So the way it works is killing monsters higher level currently in Tree of Savior has a small penalty. When monsters are your level or within 5 levels the experience is much more then normal aka better experience. As you out level monsters the bonus experience you get decreases till you out level monsters by a lot. According to websites they seem to say that after 24 levels monsters don't give experience anymore. But this is actually incorrect according to closed beta 2. From testing it you will still gain experience as a level 104 killing monsters that are level 12 but the amount of exp gained is so small you would have to kill thousands of monsters to get enough to get a percent. Though since they are still messing with the systems could be likely to change in the future.

The formula for Tree of Savior is supposed to be:
Penalty = 1 - ((Character Lv - Monster Lv - 4) * 0.05)
 
But it's likely that this was changed according to what seems to be the case in game currently. So I wouldn't follow information you find on toswiki because it doesn't seem to be correct. It feels more like monsters give a flat rate of experience like for example:

Level 12 boss monster gives 12k experience
When we are within 5 levels of the boss we see a boost of 150% experience
When we get higher experience decreases until it goes back to its normal value of 12k

The above shouldn't be taken to be fact because we really have no idea what formula is being used. The above is just an example of what could be the case. But our experience table currently looks like the following.

Tree of Savior Overview

If you've heard about Tree of Savior already then you know what the game is about. But if you haven't then your asking yourself what is this game about why should I care. Originally the project was called Project R1 because it is a spiritual reincarnation of Ragnarok Online the first game not to be confused with RO2 which was so bad that it never should have been released. The game continues to display the 2.5 3d graphics only instead of using unreal engine, they are using a custom engine which is the same they used for another game called "Wolfknights". They also brought back music from the same company SoundTeMP which was used in Ragnarok Online as well.

Currently the game is in closed beta 2 testing with a closed beta 3 test possible. I'm a tester of the game myself. When the game releases it's going to be released with 80 classes and 10 class advancements. The game currently is far from polished so over the next few day's I'll go over some of the bugs and things that I noticed thus far about the game. As well as some of the features the game has too.

But with that being said if they can improve the negative aspects of the game it will be a very successful game for people who enjoyed Ragnarok Online. So you should really keep an open mind about the game over all and not just write it off. As for people who haven't played Ragnarok Online at all you should still give it a chance. Reason I say this is because even though you might not think the graphics are the best graphics out there sometimes games that have poor graphics have really good everything else. And I never look at a game just for the graphics. I like story-line and systems and features stuff that keeps you playing for a long time.
