NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Update – June 23rd , 2022Jun 22, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsDear players, The servers of NARAKA: BLADEPOINT will be suspended for maintenance from 06/22/20 23:00 (UTC) to 06/23/2022 03:00 (UTC). We suggest that you log out in advance and enter the game again after the maintenance. The details of the update are as follows Brand-new content! I. Brand-new weapon: Dual Blades {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/36350327/ae4a1325b606fd54f94f0e16aa54c93b2e99beb7.png Autumn flows on like surging waves, as warriors slice through foes like willow leaves dancing upon water. The new weapon Dual Blades will be available. Come and try it out for yourself! II. Omni's Nightmare is back once again. 1. Choose your Faction You can choose your preferred Faction before each match, influencing who is assigned to each side. 2. In-game Content 1) Spirit Echoes: Heroes can now gain up to two passive buffs in the form of Spirit Echoes. These include 'Golden Rattan', 'Light's Rage', 'Lethal Armor', 'Copper Ward', 'Explosive Shot' and 'Beckon'. Evil-Ents may choose two from 'Hook Axe', 'Enrage', 'Split Axe', 'Eagle Vision', 'Miasma Rattan' and 'Eternal' to replace their default skills, ultimates or moves. (Check the Narakapedia for details.) 2) Check Faction info for the current match and allocate your Spirit Echoes during preparation. 3) Rattan is found around the map, but only grows near Soul Lanterns. Evil-Ents can damage Soul Lanterns to remove the Rattan, yet heroes can repair the Soul Lanterns in turn, allowing Rattan to respawn once more. Once all Rattan near Soul Lanterns have been taken, some respawn every 4 sec (or immediately when a Soul Lantern is repaired) until the respawn cap is reached. 4) Heroes now have gold Focus during the last second they submit Rattan. 5) Soul Lanterns can be repaired by multiple players at once, speeding up their repairs. 6) Ballista spawn at random spots along the tracks. Heroes must spend 10,000 Dark Tide Coins to unlock them before they can be used, however. 7) Once the match has been underway for a set time, heroes will no longer be able to Rebirth. However, Evil-Ents will also drop more Rattan when defeated. 8) The 'Nearby chat' voice channel has now been replaced with 'Faction chat'. Team chat has been added for those players who join the match as a party. Toggle Open Mic or switch voice channels in Settings - Audio. 9) Improved the sorting of Rift Dealers' items. 10) Improved the balance between Heroes and Evil-Ents in Omni's Nightmare: i. Lowered Evil-Ents' base attack, while increasing their attack gained with each level. ii. Changed randomly-spawned Soul Sparks' initial progress to 34% iii. Now 2 Rattans will be dropped when Heroes defeat the Evil-Ents. When Heroes’ Rebirths have been deducted, the dropping amount will be 5. 3. Game Settlement 1) Once the match ends, you're shown a settlement page including the winning faction's top 3 players. 2)The match stats interface has been completely overhauled: it now includes the heroes selected, specific mode achievements, and more.

Map Updates There's something off in the Sunwing's Rest recently. Check it out now! Hero Adjustments I. Justina Gu 1. Justina Gu no longer gains rage when ice fog is active after casting ultimate . //Dev Note: Justina Gu casts more frequently than expected during a long-lasting battle, so we have limited her rage gains within some time after casting the ultimate. 2. Adjusted the initial skill . It no longer negates physical strikes during the startup frames (0-1s), but Justina Gu gains a 70% damage reduction. After the startup frames, Justina Gu's physical immunity will resume. Other features of , such as active interruption, focus, restoration, etc., have not been adjusted. //Dev Note: used to have restoration capability and 5-sec physical immunity—way too overwhelming than the other two skills. The long duration of immunity can leave the opponent in an awkward predicament. Therefore, we have shortened the duration and granted damage reduction to Justina Gu to improve the combat experience for both parties. II. Yueshan 1. Slightly adjusted Yueshan's startup frames (increased from 0.7s to 1.1s) when casting the ultimate. //Dev Note: Even with extremely low remaining HP after taking heavy damage, Yueshan may still cast the ultimate, perform the transformation, and fully restore HP, which can be quite frustrating for the opponent. Also, Yueshan's transformation startup frames are way shorter than Tianhai's. As a result, we have increased Yueshan's transformation startup frames by 0.4s. III. Wuchen 1. Adjusted the Focus level during the charging stage from golden to blue for and . //Dev Note: The maximum charging time of Wuchen's skills is relatively long. With golden focus, Wuchen can gain a huge advantage. Therefore, we adjusted the focus level to ...NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Update – May 21st , 2022May 20, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsDear players, The servers of NARAKA: BLADEPOINT will be suspended for maintenance from 05/20/2022 23:00 (UTC) to 05/21/2022 03:00 (UTC).

What’s the plan for NARAKA Esport in 2022 In summary, our Esport plan includes 3 parts: Scrims, regional tournaments, and the World championship. The purpose of running official scrims regularly is to provide more chances for players and teams to practice for competitive tournaments. The scrims play under the same rules as the World Championship. So if you've got the confidence, and wish to go further in the World Championship, we'd suggest you play more scrims! Regional tournaments like the Morus Cup, Shadowjades Cup, or Celestra Cup will also return this summer. And most importantly, the World Championship will be held at the end of 2022. We will disclose more information about the tournament in the near, including the prize pool, where it will be held, and how to earn your ticket to it. We are also working with the local communities to run more community tournaments. Be sure you are following our official Twitter & Facebook to get updated. **You may notice that we were streaming the China Mainland Open finals. A Vietnamese team, SH, advanced to the finals with relatively high pings. (Let's show them some support!) 2. Why are there multiple Discord servers for scrims? What information could I get from them? We are opening scrims Discords for our esport. Generally speaking, the scrims Discord servers are for people who want to join the matches or find a team to join. You will find members from our Esport team running and organizing matches there. For more information, visit your region's respective esports Discord server: SEA https://discord.gg/j592sXMMp9 JP: https://discord.gg/SYm5C3WmcM NA: https://discord.com/invite/kHByhnaB2z EU: https://discord.gg/cM5Td3E5Sy 3. What has the dev team been working on recently? Mostly a new weapon, a new hero, and a new map, and you guessed it, console ports.

All she cares for is revenge, and finding her mother once more. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/36350327/ccffbee1daac5afa3e7894e0985e72fcb2d4c313.png (Justina Gu's third skill variant and ultimate are not open in current version.

Players: 30 Matchmaking: Players can enter the match through Solo, Duo or Trios, but will be assigned to a random faction and play individually upon starting Omni's Nightmare (in the future versions, the mode will also be available in Custom Lobby). Basic Rules: 1. Each Hero can revive one time. Evil-Ent Lords will revive as Evil-Ents after being defeated. Evil-Ents are able to respawn without limit. 2. Heroes steadily lose Health while in the Shadow Corruption, but recover Health while in the Embers or Soul Lantern areas. Evil-Ents lose lots of Health while within the Embers. 3. Heroes have to submit Rattans to Soul Sparks until they're lit. After this, they start counting down until they go out. In the meanwhile, the Heroes are strengthened by varying amounts. 4. Each time when the Soul Spark is lit or the Evil-Ent Lord is defeated, the match duration will be extended. 5. Heroes receive varying amounts of Dark Tide Coins upon submitting Rattans or defeating Evil-Ents/Evil-Ent Lords. Dark Tide Coins can be used to buy equipment and items from Rift Dealers. 6. Soul Sparks can be extinguished by Evil-Ent Lords. Once being extinguished, Soul Sparks will enter a protection period during which they cannot be extinguished again. 7. While there are still Evil-Ent Lords left alive, Heroes can attack each other. There will be a penalty for defeating a hero by mistake. Once all Evil-Ent Lords have been eliminated, the remaining Heroes are considered of the same faction. 8. If the total Soul Spark progress amounts to 240% or more (300% counting as full completion), it will enter overtime when the countdown ends. During the overtime, the countdown will stop when Heroes submit Rattans and the duration will be largely increased when the submission succeeds.
