SirCabbageYes, the WHEATGRASS JUICE is a Battledome item.

In what seems like perhaps the most surprising thing to happen in recent times for the battledome... The Wheatgrass Juice is a battledome item.




It isn't particularly good- nor is it particularly exciting. But it sure is surprising!

SirCabbageA mess of new weapons in the Hidden Tower and beyond
Posted by SirCabbage on February 5, 2018, 11:12 am NST
The Hidden Tower has reopened in a rather triumphant way, with two new weapons. One of these weapons is fairly par for the course- but one seems like prime fodder for a downgrade.

The two weapons are the weaker 15 million np 'Gemmed Sword of Light'



and the crazy 'Focus of Imminent Destruction'



At this point as with anything TJST does, if backlash is too heavy than likely they will downgrade these items. At this point it likely is a gamble as to if you should buy. Maybe since these items cost users so much they might find a different solution- it will be up to you to decide if you buy them.

Beyond that, as you would have seen through the plot posting there has been another weapon released during the plot. The 'blazing embers' are still exhibiting the same "likely will be downgraded" stats of the other free weapons.




Interestingly you may have also nothing the forth weapon added recently- the 'Sword of Malum'. In a rather awesome turn of events TJST has released the first one-player only battledome item for an opponent in a very long time... (though I am almost positive it will likely become a plot prize later)



I do wonder what all this could mean for the battledome. On the one hand TNT clearly has a renewed interest in the battledome for the first time since long before the changeover... on the other hand it is clear they have no idea what they are doing when it comes to power balance.

TJST has overseen some of the biggest crashes in battledome history. The impact of the massive wave of unpunished and unremoved dupe super attack peas driving their prices to laughable levels.... Their continued insistence in keeping charity corner going despite it being terrible for the economy when not tightly controlled leading to the Wand of the Dark Faerie dropping far below a reasonable price point... I am torn, on the one hand I love that the battledome is back on the agenda, on the other I do have to worry about the impact all this uncertainty will have to the community.
HerdyLeaked Plot Step

UPDATE 1/2: The plot steps are back, and this time Malum is in the Battledome. Follow the link from the Headquarters page to find him at the Gypsy Camp, then battle him for achievements (he is difficulty 442 on hard mode). He is also dropping a new coffer NC item.

---


Between all the lag, earlier today a new plot step was briefly available. It is now removed and not currently available.

New dialogue was added to the Headquarters page regarding Malum - along with a link to find him at the Gypsy Camp. Going there appeared to award the Blazing Embers battledome item and an event showing Malum unlocked in the battledome.



However, Malum was never actually available at the Battledome. Two new achievements were added (which are still up) for beating Malum, and beating him on Hard (Mighty) mode.

The dialogue remains up, viewable via the 'Story So Far' page, but is no longer live on the Headquarters page.

We'll keep you updated if this step is readded in the near future.
