Just a fair warning: In version 1.8 you may see a new portal in tempest-peak. This is a new event that is not finished yet (In particular, it has not been play balanced.) It's generally safe to enter for a few turns, but staying for the timed event is likely to get your character killed.

Does the 1.8 version include new potions for mindstar mastery and staff mastery, now that those are available in shops? If not, can we get those included? (With appropriate rarity levels, of course.)

Those trees were just tacked onto the potion that gives you Combat Training and shoot, not a new item.

That's correct. the potion of martial prowess teaches four talent trees.

How is this connected to infinite 500? Do I see an 'end level' for infinite 500 coming?

It's a new event (like the drake cave) that I've developed to appear periodically in the I.D. to provide access to shops and a challenging (and hopefully fun) scenario. The Tempest-Peak portal is just an artifact of testing -- I thought I had removed it before releasing version 1.8.

This event is now ready for play-testing except for some performance issues, which I am working with darkgod to correct.

I have no plans to include an "end-level" in Infinite500.

Finally! A use for cash in the Infinite Dungeon again!

As for end level, Awwwww.... Was hoping for a titantic duel with a god on some obscenely deep level. (5000 perhaps?) Perhaps an additional (even bigger) fight with a Sher'tul afterwards, but oh well. Shops are nice too.

Something special at level 500 would be appropriate, wouldn't it?

The priority now is to make sure that it's possible to get to level 500 first. From looking through the character vault, I see very few characters making much past 50-60 in the I.D. though.

Interesting idea from a different topic, crossposting here...

Supporting and bumping.

Also, I'd love incompatible events not to trigger. I play a bit of ID and there's no way I'm gonna go do bearscape from there (unless somehow a rod of recall spawns - I have already got Orb of Many Ways).


From: http://forums.te4.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=37456

Discussion relates to allowing/disallowing the special events (bearscape/poosh/etc) to appear by a toggle, with support so we didn't receive them in ID. Rather, I'd wonder if infinite500 can pick up on the event pushes, and randomly place a portal to the relevant area, which returns us to the next floor. (You're beginning on this path with your new special area anyhow, you just need to tie in the event pushes as well.) Would love to be able to nab the Axe of Fluffy Evil when it gets pushed for my ID characters, and poosh could be quite useful to wilders. If the idea (or part of it.) is to give ID characters all the advantages that a main-game character would have, it seems appropriate to give them the event push bonuses as well.

Wouldn't even necessarily have to spawn portal immediately after event push, just randomly generate it on a later floor, maybe the next one, maybe 10 floors on, etc... Seems like this wouldn't be too hard to do... But then again, I don't know a ton about how the event pushes work.

Any hope for this?

It could be possible in the future, but the pushed events are not present in the main game files and so an addon would need to detect and modify the zone definition before it's loaded.

The special events are designed to be encountered on the worldmap, so, among other things, the event would need to loaded on appropriate levels, be set to disallow the rod of recall within (and exit back to the I.D.), and have appropriate item drops.

This mod breaks summoners a little. The usual Cunning-based summon limit seems to have been removed, letting a lvl 1 summoner with 13 cunning summon all of their pets at once when they should only be able to send 1 out at a time.

Good catch. The summoning limit was a little bit too generous at low cunning levels. Fixed for the next version.
