[Focus Feedback & Bug Reporting] The Ennead Expedition Mutators

Greetings Adventurers,

We’ve made some changes to the Mutated Expedition flow here are some highlights of the biggest changes coming soon.

Mutated Expeditions rewards schedule will emphasize Boss Loot Celebration. Chests will be removed from the flow and placed at the end of the run after scoring is complete.

Scoring Update Highlights

  • Silver and Gold Values tuned to 25000, 50000
  • Gatherables are ~500 points per gatherable totaling 5000 points.
  • Bosses and Minibosses add to score like as a named enemy
  • Fix Double Penalty for Teamwipe (Respawns + Teamwipes) by subtracting active participants from respawn count in the event of a Teamwipe
  • Added Total values for Gatherables
    • Points per gatherable are Gatherables total value / Number of Gatherables
  • Removed Multiplier for Respawns
    • Respawns are penalized as a flat value

There are also updates to normal Expeditions.
