    5/11 Livestream Info and Feedback

    Hey everyone. That time of the week again...

    Some notes from the stream today https://www.twitch.tv/videos/260216960

    Tutorial
    • Compared to the original Defi tutorial - They wanted to remove redundancy and throw us into the action. Removing having to go to menus to change powers or equip weapons.
    • Grenade now in tutorial... equipped automatically at that part
    • Nothing has really changed since beta but they want to explain the more complicated systems
    • Working on a tutorial for enhancement and class systems
    Not sure why in tutorial... when Chip switches to his Pistol, then back to his AR, his AR is somehow doing more damage... (around 6:00 to 7:00 ish)
    Classes
    • If you purchase the classes with money in the starter pack for example... they will be unlocked for all of your characters once you finish the tutorial for those characters. Each class can also be acquired in-game, with in-game currency, for that specific character only.
    • Got a tease for Combat Medic. Will feature a 99er style healing drone for its starting ability. Can heal allies as well. Drone will blow up when destroyed damaging nearby enemies.
    • Crusader class planning to not be in on release
    Destro says "All classes can be earned in-game if that's what you choose to do with that currency" not sure what to make of that. Is this currency limited?
    Prototypes
    • Saw Blade Launcher - Raider themed... shoots saw blades will go through enemies and bounce off environment (sounds a lot like the Miter in Warframe ha). Will drop from Raider enemies/events... they weren't specific.
    • Hellbug Venom Spitter (detonator) - Shoots archer style projectiles. Drops from Hellbug enemies/events...
    • Scrapper SMG (new info) - every few shots or so it can proc a small electrical field area of effect

    Cosmetics
    • Showed new Demolitionist outfit in game (red/black)
    • Showed Crusader outfit in game
    • Character Creation is being looked into. They want to build off the base character creation and improve some visuals.
    • They plan to show more Valor outfits next week

    Power Rating/Enhancement
    • Power Rating is the "most important thing now". It is primary way of how you will be gaining power and progressing in Defiance 2050.
    • Power Rating is highlighted more within the inventory and the UI for more emphasis
    • Working on a system to show enemy's Power Rating as well
    • Drops are based on your current Power Rating of your equipped gear. So... if you want to increase your power... you need to keep equipping higher Power Level gear.
    • Shields and Grenades are not enhanceable
    • There is also a Level, based on your EGO, to be able to equip the gear
    • We saw a Condition Level 4 and Level 5 Retaliator (FRC AR) both purple rarity. The Level 5 Condition had 174 DMG per shot and the Level 4 had 171 DMG per shot.
    • It seems rarity itself has no effect on the damage of weapons in 2050. Just Condition and the fact that higher rarity weapons can be enhanced further.
    • There will be a preview function added for enhancing to see how much the salvage you select will enhance your weapons

    Other
    • The goal is still for no content to be gated behind a paywall. The only thing you would have to pay for would be vanity (cosmetic) items. DLC from original game for example is free
    • No trading at launch... but looking to add it in post launch
    • Hoping to set the groundwork for a lot more post launch updating
    • Console founders packs are being worked on but they have to go through a different process through Sony and Microsoft for them

    Hopefully not this one.
    Nerfs are good, they are a great balance tool.
