Screenshots and Comments from Version 2.9 GE

It took me a damn long while to patch in, but I'm back in the New World, and here are a few things I've noticed along the way.

Changes to UI and Game Mechanics

V2.9 NewLogin
New login screen, showing what seems to be the haunted town in the upcoming Errac area.

STILL stuck with the Beta Test fonts, though.

V2.9 NewBarracks
The lower portion of the Barracks screen, showing the modifications to the "Start a team" fields.

STILL no Channel 3-4-5 or so, though.

V2.9 NewUI
The lower portion of the standard UI screen showing the family members, skills, HP/SP, and other quick information. Notice that the colors of the basic and stance experience bars have been changed.

V2.9 NewMiniMap
Improved navigation ability in the Mini Map. Click on a place in the Mini Map and your characters will automatically move to that place. The red dot means I was looking for Claire - she's not in yet though.

Full lists of features and patch notes here and here.

Pet Quest

There's a nice and quick guide to getting a pet in the forums; requires login to view. Roussalier's Cute Pet Quest Guide

For Sword of the New World players, your guide to getting a pet is here: Starstorm's Poppet For Pet

I make the distinction because there are subtle differences between the two versions of the process.

Pet HiddenMushroom01
Aww, gotta kill the cute li'l ones. You CANNOT kill the mom.

Pet HiddenMushroom02

Pet EggWithMoss
After the fight, you might just get this.

Pet EggHatching
Clean the Greenhouse out and visit the egg every day for three days so it hatches.

My Pilfurr [a/k/a Grabber, a/k/a Poppet] will hatch on Sunday! Maybe by then I can earn the Fesos so I can feed it....

Grabber is Poppet, Moppet is the healer/buffer type not out in SotNW yet. Oh, and you don't have to kill the mom in SotNW :)

@ tchoob

I appreciate the corrections. It's just that I had been following Starstorm's guide for the SOTNW info.

tchoob said...

Sure, those were just some things I've noticed while doing my daily reading of your blog :)
To be more precise - in Sword you CAN kill the mom, but you don't have to do it. I didn't, and got the egg.

Am I getting annoying with the corrections already? :>

@ tchoob

not at all! I usually don't mind corrections when they're done well, and you do them quite nicely. thanks again!
