SirCabbageAnother battledome item released in the Daily Dare!
Posted by SirCabbage on May 9, 2018, 12:37 am NST
After the last news report I thought I would just cut to the point without any puns... but then I made that one. Point is, we now have a second new battledome item released from this year's "Daily Dare".

This time we are looking at a brand new snake related item for the cobrall infested game "Piper Panic"



This item represents the second item given out for the battledome by this daily dare (if you don't count the movement increasing potion). It is also not time limited so you have until the end of the event to earn it if you would like it. The score isn't hard with a guide, but does require some last level deaths to get the score.
SirCabbageExclusive look at new battledome item "BALL" - You'll want to see our cutting edge report
Posted by SirCabbage on April 30, 2018, 1:07 am NST
Now, straight out of this years "'Daily Dare'" we bring you this live, breaking and all-round important report. Thanks in part to AAA and the support of the very secretive bowling ball union (It isn't a very good one as you can imagine) we have been granted the chance to talk and even use a new battledome item, "Bowling Ball of Lost Cities"- or as he prefers to be called "Ball". Our reporters are truly on a roll with this one, they got around to giving us a smashing report.



Early reports have shown this weapon to be right up many user's alleys- "Ball" responds by simply stating "It's just the way I roll". Will this ball be downgraded? Ball doesn't seem too concerned, stating that he has battledome icons to spare. But we will have to wait and see as to if "Ball" strikes out.

This new ball can be yours by obtaining 1200 points in "Lost City Lanes"- it is not a time limited prize, but you should pick it up before it ends up in the gutter.
SirCabbagePiles of potions and a new plot step weapon.

Over the past few weeks people have slowly been identifying new potions which may be equipped in the battledome.






Most of them we are still not sure on, but here they are.

More importantly the plot has released the Sword of Malum for general use. It will most likely need to be retested, but initial tests suggest that it is basically the same, but with the darkness turned into physical. When Malum uses the sword of Malum it still does the old stats.



The other item is a ring used by Kaia which for now is only a 1-player item.



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.
