This Week at Lavaboots: Pirate Kings and Quests

7:41 AM Will Sterling 0 Comments

Hey everyone!

We hope you're having a great week and perhaps even having some new adventures in Salt! We want to give you guys an update as to what's been going on Lavaboots this week and the progress we're making towards the next update.

Pirate Kings

As you may know, the next update is going to feature a brand new pirate island. These new islands are going to have the most variety in pirate types, and even a pirate boss. The pirate boss won't always be there however, so you'll have to figure out how to summon him. The new boss will be called a Pirate King. These Pirate Kings are going to be tough. Really tough. But don't worry, they are going to drop some pretty neat items...

This week we've been working on getting these new pirates ready to go, doing some balancing, creating their loot, and programming some logic needed for the new bosses.

Side Quests

Also this week we've been working on adding side quests relevant to the new pirate islands. These quests will be given by merchants you find and involve some task related to the new pirate islands. You may be asked to seek revenge and kill a certain pirate, or uncover some secret lore in the game. These quests will of course reward you with some good new gear. We've got a few ideas here and are working to make quests more interesting and add depth. 

We are still working on finalizing the visuals of the island and doing some testing, but we expect this update to be out soon!
