The studio announced that the end of June will see the implementation of another update whose main element will be part two of the gear overhaul. In addition, players will be able to choose from several boss difficulty levels – a feature long-awaited by the community.
“The first part of the gear overhaul, implemented in April, was met with a warmer welcome than we expected. Players were raiding bosses like never before to get the power-enhancing drifs that match the vision of their characters. Watching them discussing, mixing and matching gear, and trying out new builds was awesome. That was our goal and now comes step two.”, says the founder of the studio, Krzysztof Danilewicz.
The studio unveiled that with the next stage of the overhaul, all legendary gear, sets, and epics will be given a quality level expressed with the so-called ornaments. Each piece of gear can have up to nine, divided into three stages of three ornaments each. Gear with a higher number of ornaments can be looted or crafted. Well, it’s all fine and dandy, but what do these ornaments even do? They provide what all MMORPG players like best – more attributes, resistances, and also bonuses that boost other special effects present in gear.
In addition to that, Whitemoon Games announced additional difficulty levels for some boss instances.
“We’ve been thinking about this for a long time, but first we had to finalize the most important elements of the gear overhaul so that everything fits together nicely. It’s not only about adding more content but also providing new challenges for the veterans and creating new possibilities for those who prefer to play in smaller groups. To give the latter something extra, the easy instances will also feature an experience bonus for pets that help players in combat.”, adds Danilewicz.

Broken Ranks is the successor to the MMORPG The Pride of Taern. It boasts a unique, turn-based combat system and a grim, low-fantasy world seen from an isometric view. The title is reminiscent of such classics as the HoM&M series or Baldur’s Gate. Adventurers will be able to find a lot of story-driven quests and a vast, interesting world ready to be explored alone, in a group, or with guildmates.
