    NPC companions?

    Anyone think this could be implemented later into the game?You could do a couple of side quests (something story related) and the game would award you a npc companion, that would help you in further adventures.Depending on which side quest story line you chose you could alternate between healers, buffers, warriors and so on.The companion could wear his own set of armor and weapons, as well as have his own backpack to carry things.You could order him around and stuff, it would be pretty useful addition to the game.If you for example want to gather a party, but youre missing a healer or a tank, you could call your companion.He would also be able to go and quest on his own, to gather misc items or armour pieces or weapons and such, as well as to serve your guild in large battles.They wouldnt be as strong as a real player, but still would be quite significant.Their strength would depend on their level, equipment and other factors that affect any real player.You would also have to gather some stuff and maybe pay a small fee for using their services. I dont know, this just came up to my mind and i would like to hear feedback whether or not this is possible.

    A Break

    I'd like to say a few things to the people who may be complaining or are getting frustrated. As someone who has been around (although admittedly not very active) since FO went down and a good amount of time before that, I've been waiting a long time for another FO. Lots of people have. It's natural to get impatient, especially when there's a perceived lack of communication. We've waited for years and it seems (emphasis on seems) like there is barely anything being done. But here's the thing. Llama, Ari, Lighterthief, and the rest of the people working on this game don't owe anything to any of us. Zero. The things that have already been done have cost them a lot of time and effort. Anyone whose paid money in support of this game has done so willingly and under the knowledge that the developers are not paid employees. They're voluntarily using their talents to produce something for a community they love because all of us want a replacement for that which was lost. That's why it makes me angry to see all the threads and comments complaining about the game. We're not entitled to this. We're sitting here essentially doing nothing while someone makes a unique high quality mmorpg for us. We're not entitled to anything. We didn't earn anything. Whatever happens in the future happens. We've seen this game come along way from an idea to a working alpha. That's more than a lot of game devs can boast. Playing FO and looking forward to Waves of Time has brought me a lot of joy over the years as I interact and watch this community both struggle and thrive. That's all I have to say about that. Oh, and Knight Templar is da best

    So the time has come I think to formally announce a break. We’ve all got stuff going on in our lives with work, family, and summertime fun this has been discussed in the staff room and enough time has passed with no objections so I thought we would let you guys know what’s going on. We are all still here just some are more available at times than others. If you haven’t found it yet you can join us in discord https://discord.gg/ZBZw8V

    I thought it might be an ok idea if the weather and day/night cycle could actually somehow affect the game mechanics.Lets say youre a water healer and it starts raining in the current area.You get 1% bonus to all or most water related spells.This bonus could then be increased by leveling or investing points or whatever into "Survivalist" (name can be changed later) skill tree.Vice versa, if youre a fire dps based warrior, your attack would get reduced by a certain amount of % (lets say 5%) when it would start raining.But if you were near a volcano and a eruption started, your critical hit % would be increased by 20%.By investing into survivalist skill tree you could further increase buffs and decrease debuffs when youre exposed to a unfavourable type of weather.Same goes for other elements.Earth would get buffed when there is an earthquake happening and air would get a buff during a storm or tornado.Earth and air are opposites, as well as water and fire.Whichever weather is good for one element, would debuff the opposite element based characters.This way we could also make certain elements stick to their certain areas in the world map.Lets say in the story or lore of WoT we have a fire based nation living near a volcano.You could motivate their choice of location by the frequent eruptions that favour their warriors and mages, whilst putting their enemies at a disadvantage.This way characters would be motivated to play along the lines of the story.Maybe in the storyline the fire and water based nations have been at conflict for a long time.You could explain that by the fact that fire and water are natural enemies due to their weather buffs/debuffs, thus they would fight each other more often.Also, certain weather would be more common in certain areas or landmarks.On the map we have a volcano.When youre running past it, you could see a message "A volcano violently erupts in the distance."In the south, near the tropical rainforests it would rain more often, the same goes for other elements. Inb4 but you wouldnt be able to explore the whole map with this stupid system.No, you would.First of all, weather based events would not happen that often to completely limit some players to their respectable factions territory on the map.Second of all, you could invest into the skill tree to reduce and at final stages remove the weather based debuffs, you would just have to sacrifice a little bit of other skills and abilities for it.And we can always balance it out, so that its nothing game changing, but still adds some depth and spiciness to the game mechanics.Third of all, 5% less atk isnt that tragic. I dunno, this just came to my mind, so i wrote it down before i forgot the idea.I checked the suggestions list and didnt see this being suggested before.Feel free to leave your honest criticism on this idea.Like and subscribe if you enjoyed my monologue.

    Wtf is with all of these Antaria shills recently?We already had this conversation with a different guy and established that Antaria is a cheap pay2win and now also pay2play FO knockoff.No one is losing faith in devs, its just that were all humans and we all need a break sooner or later.Stop stealing our player base, go somewhere else to shill your FO simulator.Were here because we want WoT, not FO or Antaria.

    Going to chime in going off of Seph and Gamer's comments. To all those who are working on this game, I would like to thank you for the hard work, money, time, and resources you all have sacrificed to create this game. You've done more than enough to prove to us that you guys were serious about this. If this does come to end, then that's okay. You made it this far. I have great respect for Llama and the whole rest of the team, and for the people who haven't lost hope for this game. This is a sentiment that I am sure is shared by those who truly believe in this project. To all those complaining about the game, as previously mentioned, these developers owe us nothing. We have been blessed to have had the chance to at least test out what they have created thus far, and that has been a wonderful experience. If you dont truly believe in this game, then I ask, why are you here? No one is making you stay. Go back to playing your overpriced AAA overrated game. For me, I'll be supporting Waves of Time until we see a release or until this project comes to an end.

    This project was about making something we all wanted to enjoy together, to bring back similar memories that a lot of us had before but with something even greater. It's unfortunate to see it come this far and for it to pause or stop. Sure we can all play other games, but do any of them compare to this or what this would have become? No, probably not, although I wish I were wrong and you are free to correct me of course. You can find cheap copies, things that will kill time and maybe even something you'll enjoy. You won't find a Waves Of Time because this game is not just a type of art style, a looter, or a place to make friends. It is all those things and more when you have a team and community that actually care about what they're doing and want to make it the best experience they possibly can. Mmorpg's are not really in the best place, haven't been for a long time, gaming as a whole. Money has become the main priority and as you know greed will consume and destroy what we care about. Waves of Time was going to be separate from all that, that's why at the very least it deserves to be finished, if not for yourselves then for everyone else who believes in this and are tired of seeing all these games that never lived up to their potential. Ask yourself what motivated you to make this in the first place, how you feel about it now, and what it will take to see it through. You've put so much into this and you've come so far, if you stop now you'll only regret it and always wonder what could have been. I mean this all with sincerity.

    If we do believe it won’t come to be then yes we will close the forum. When the break is over we will send everyone an email telling you and post a new update as well. All I can ask is for patience.

    Devblog 92 Tiny Art Update

    Hi guys, A small blog with some new art! Most of the map is done now, there is one part missing at the bottom that you can't see yet. The bottom left is new. I'm not sure if the top ice part was ever revealed either. Feel free to speculate what types cultures would live in this world. I've been very busy personally the last few months which has kind of put WoT on the back burner. Even though I'm still very busy, my goal is to slowly get back into it and finishing up some loose ends. Hopefully next month we can show you more. Thanks to whoever is still around and reading this blog Lighterthief

    Is there any way we can do direct credit/debit card transactions instead of through PayPal? Not a big issue, but it's a little more direct, and satiates my PayPal paranoia.

    References to other games

    I'm sorry but by Link do you mean Zelda Link? Also, while it would be great to include characters from other games and make references it can actually be an infringement to do so. FO took a really solid hit to the nose when they stuck it too far into other peoples business (Making references to things, Crabton America is one example I can think of). They actually had to change dozens and dozens of items to avoid being sued, and it upset some people quite a lot. So while references to other games is fun and desirable, you really have to be careful as to how far you go.

    what weapon would you like.

    I do sincerely hope that the developers will not add such weapons as have been suggested such as meme guns and whatever, If these are added due to popular request this is going to be years of development all put to waste, and you'll have to play muted as there will be "smoke weed everyday" as the theme song, and flappy bird will survey all of the maps, crashing into plumbing, not to mention the fact that if you all want another meme game, go to http://www.quickmeme.com/ instead of spamming it on game sites. Edit: I forgot to actually put what weapons that I think would be nice to have, so since I'm not entirely sure how the combat will work in this game as of now, I'll just list some stuff. Multigun: Shoots x amount of shots equal to x of your ranged attack stat so if it were 9 and shot 3 shots, at half of your attack stat it would be 13.5. Multi-sided flaming chain spear: A cross between a grappling hook, a spear and a blazing inferno, which shoots out to your enemy, and hits them on the way back to you as well as on the way toward the enemy. Gold sword: Gold is a weak metal, it does -x of your attack stat. Shield blade: Like a shield, but also a sword, uses only sword slot, shield slot becomes either sword or shield slot, the shield blade gives you a balance of defense and attack, for either defensive or offensive builds, as you can have a shield or a sword instead of just a shield, so you can have 1.5 shield and .5 sword or 1.5 sword and .5 shield instead of just shield and sword. Bladestaff: Uses melee, ranged, and magic damage, but comsumes mana and attacks at a fast rate of fire. Rafflesia staff: Enemies flee as it smells so bad when cast, however it uses a lot of mana, to be used as a last resort when losing a fight that one could not easily flee from.

    Must.. find a way.. to make this.. work. Rebirth players could have these fancy robes, capes, hoods, cloaks, whatevers, with the design of their most dedicated element. If there were multiple rebirths, ascensions, or awakenings then the cape's design (or some other clothing) could change. Maybe it's too much to implement, but I'm sure over time as the level cap increases and we are finally able to rebirth (if it's decided) then we could obtain some neat thing to let other players know we've been reborn. Something to think about for the future, or the past.. as we'd be traveling back in time. Whoa.

    @Archangel Yes, so much yes. The tide comes in and washes over everything, the Waves of Time refresh your destiny. Now I understand with our current title rebirth makes so much sense if implemented in a fun way. Maybe with each rebirth you get a passive with the element you're loyal to, allowing you to be more effective with it, not like overkill, but just rewarding enough to make rebirth worthwhile. EDIT: Possibly a small stat increase as well.

    You know, actually, if we implement a system with different storylines based on what element you pick (Air/Fire/Water/Earth), you could rebirth as a different element, essentially increasing the playtime 300%

    No Rebirth System?

    A) How is downvoting "removing the right of free speech"? The comment doesn't go away or get removed from downvotes. It just means someone disagreed. In all honesty, not allowing people to downvote is more of an act of restricting free speech. Joseph said why he disagreed with your comment. C) There is no such thing as free speech on the internet. Doubly so if you don't own the site.
