Default Beta Update Notes: Saturday November 23, 2019

from Caith:

OVERSEER SYSTEM

As of the beta update for 11/23/2019 the Overseer system is now available on Beta. To gain overseer quests and agents purchase the An Overseer's First Agents crate from the beta buffer Finch. This will grant you the short tutorial overseer quests and your first agent. Completing the tutorial overseer quests will grant you another agent, as well as your first two persistent overseer quests. For the purposes of beta, the overseer rewards only drop more overseer system agents and quests.
  • How do I open the Overseer window? The Overseer window is listed under Overseer in the main menu.
  • What is an Agent? An agent is a character you have formed a contract with to perform tasks throughout Norrath. While all agents can help fulfil an overseer quest, higher tier agents have specific traits which may positively or negatively affect the outcome of an overseer quest. In game systems terms you collect these agents as in game items and add them to your overseer agent collection, and assign them to overseer quests. Once used on an overseer quest an agent goes into a cooldown period to recuperate.
  • What is an overseer quest? An overseer quest is a task that you send agents to accomplish. Each quest has a set of positive and negative traits that can affect the outcome of the quest. Sending a sly agent may help in an infiltration quest, while sending an honest agent may well hinder that same quest, increasing the chance for a mishap. These tasks take a set time to complete and will always grant a reward upon completion with a chance for a bonus reward based off of the difficulty of the quest, as well as the matching traits of the agents you send.
  • Bonus Chance? A bonus chance is the chance the completion of the quest will grant an extra reward. You can increase your bonus chance by assigning agents that have positive traits for the quest, as well as assigning a mercenary.
  • Mishaps? Every task comes with some risk, and each overseer quest has a chance for a mishap. When a mishap occurs one or more of the agents you sent on the quest will go into an extended cooldown. Assigning an agent that has a trait that the quest treats as a negative will increase the mishap chance on that adventure.
  • Can I do anything about a mishap? First, avoid using agents that have a negative trait on the quest, though sometimes the positives may outweigh the negatives. The second thing you can do is assign a familiar to assist your agents on the quest. Assigning a familiar reduces the mishap chance, with higher tier familiars reducing mishap chances by a greater amount.
  • What happens when my agent has a mishap? When your agent has a mishap it has either been injured or captured by another agency in Norrath. When you have an agent in such dire straits special overseer quests called rescue quests become available, which you can assign the unfortunate agent to decrease the extended cooldown time. Rescue quests, as with all quests, come with their own chance for a bonus reward. While painful, sometimes failure can lead to great things.
  • How many overseer quests can I run? Each account can start 10 persistent overseer quests each day. Cancelling an overseer quest will not restore the use of that daily charge. Some overseer quests do not go into this daily pool, as they are charged quests. An example of a charged quest would be the Become an Overseer tutorial quests. Once the charges on these quests are exhausted they remove themselves from your quest pool. Cancelling a charged quest will not restore the item that granted the quest.
  • Can I still use my Familiar/Mercenary while it is assisting with an Overseer quest? Your mercenaries and familiars may still be used while they are also assisting an overseer quest. Norrath is a magical place.

Persistent Mercenary buffs

Mercenaries that have been unlocked to hire anywhere will now grant a persistent "Mercenary Battalion" buff even when not summoned. Every mercenary that you have unlocked to hire anywhere may contribute to Mercenary Battalion, with higher tier and higher rank mercenaries contributing more. While each type of mercenary will grant a different buff, all mercenaries of that era contribute to the effect of all other mercenaries of that era.

How do I make my mercenary contribute? Simply summon a mercenary that you have unlocked to Hire Anywhere which is also at least rank 5, and its contribution will be added to the total. Contribution is increased at rank 5, rank 10 rank 20, and eventually at rank 25 when that is unlocked. While you have a mercenary summoned, you can right click on it to check how much it has contributed to the total.

How high can contribution go? Contribution can be increased up to 100% and will not further increase the effects once 100% has been reached.

All currently available mercenaries contribute to the Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands effect. Future mercenaries will contribute to new or more powerful versions of Mercenary Battalion.

Do all mercenaries grant the same effect? No, each mercenary grants a specific buff based off of its type. While the buff differentiation is not in the current beta build, the different types are listed below. The buff type should correspond to the mercenary type. Further, more powerful/rare mercenaries provide a more powerful version of the effect.
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Archer)
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Caster)
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Healer)
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Melee)
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Support)
  • Mercenary Battalion: Shattered Lands (Tank)

ZONES/POPULATION
Certain bosses, such as Divine Prophet Buffo II and Bazaar Baron Brixwald, should not longer be stuck immune to damage.
