Our next patch, Loot & Survive, is coming soon™. It contains pretty much everything you could want while defending Etheria -- a new leveling/progression curve, level cap increase to 50, rewards & Skill Sphere choices as you level up, a completely new loot/stat system, Onslaught Mode, Nightmare mode, an economy balance to make gold more meaningful, and oh so much more.


It will also include a wipe of your heroes and some of your other progress. Since we’re going to miss your heroes too (nooo Portario56235!), we decided to go the extra mile and put together some EXCLUSIVE items for your hard work:


Corrupted Welp

Everyone who has leveled up at least one hero to level 25 will be awarded a unique, custom pet. To obtain this award, you must complete this challenge by 5 PM EDT, July 26th.

4 Survivor Hero Costumes [updated 7/18]

Everyone who has leveled up at least one of each hero class to level 25 will get a unique hero costume for that class. To obtain these awards, you must complete this challenge by 5 PM EDT, July 26th.

We hope these make up for this heroic sacrifice ever-so-slightly more than a colorized icon. We appreciate all of your hard work helping us build Dungeon Defenders II-- together we are going to make the best Action Tower Defense game there is.


Wyvern Token Rewards [updated 7/18]

Finally, for the past week, all of you have been using your Influence points on which kind of wipe you’d like to see -- a Full Wipe or Partial Wipe. As of the writing of this post, Full Wipe is 7000 points ahead -- but, we recognize this could change at any moment.

We’ve received a ton of feedback from the Partial Wipe camp, asking us to create a reward for the hard-earned Wyvern Tokens they’ve obtained. Well look no further! IF the Full Wipe wins, we will be awarding the following amount of gems based on the amount of Wyvern Tokens you’ve earned by 5 PM EDT, July 26th:


Wyvern Tokens Earned

Gems Rewarded

20 - 39

150

40 - 79

300

80 - 119

500

120 +

1200


Come back Monday for an Influence Vote on the exact details of the wipe


P.S. It’d look something like this if we transferred your hero data over. Also, we’re fully aware of going a bit overboard on the rewards for this wipe. But what can you say, we all got excited about these costumes (thanks Dan!).

In the devstream, there is discussion of weather to do a partial wipe, or a full wipe. I'd like to throw my soon to be tattered hobo hat into the partial wipe pot as I've collected a lot of Lockboxes that I've only JUST begun having the ability to acquire Wyvern Tokens to purchase Keys. If that discussion is someplace else on the forums, I'd like the link to it

Ok, so now I'm going to play every minute of my holidays to get 4 heroes up to level 25 just for the costumes.

GREAT IDEA TRENDY!

 An influence vote is starting on Monday.  That would be the place :)

And also for the cool stuff that will be coming. Awesome.

I am sure that I am in the minority here, but some have been with you since the beginning and have logged many farming hours to acquire nice gear, and as a result what is our reward?  You will wipe our hours of work out of existence.  If I understand this correctly, what you are saying is, "Hey, thanks for paying to play our game and bankrolling us so we can continue to develop this game.  So what we would like to do is strip away everything you worked for up to this point.  I am sure you will continue to play numerous hours and be excited about the prospect of starting all over again!. I have over 160 influence points and have not once used them.  This "wipeaggeddon" thing is a real shame and rather disappointing.  The idea of earning a skin is laughable.  "Going a bit overboard on the reward of this wipe", now that's some good humor right there.  I understand it was a beta and this was a possibility, and the reasons behind it blah blah balh, but it still sucks.

Just want to say I understand why the wipe, but wanted to bring up a suggestion.

When I alpha tested a game called FIREFALL some years back, all the resources and currency we had built up got transferred into what was called Beta crystite. This allowed us to buy fun and wacky items like fireworks, exp boost, hat, pets, etc.

I would encourage you to explore something like this as initially if you go back far enough it was said there would never be ANY wipes. Then this was updated to say you will Try not to.

Regardless wishing you guys all the best with the upcoming changes.

Let me sum up: I'm gonna lose all my progress and get a worthless pet and four useless costumes as a refund for hundreds of playing hours (=life time) I've already put in the game? Then you post a video where you guys trying to persuade me how 'awesome' it is that my already invested life time will end in smoke while laughing at me all the time. That's offensive!

Such a shame about my lost time and lost money but I'm going to wipe DD2 off my hard drive.

 Hey wipe away I won't tell you not to, but I will remind you, and everyone else that early access/alpha/beta games are still in testing so wipes may be necessary if the devs deem it. So complaining about it is pointless because as trendy has said "Limited resets may happen during Early Access." Which means you guessed it wipes will happen, but on the upside not on a weekly basis.

 Disclaimer: DD2 is only a computer game. You get nothing in reward for time and money spend but satisfaction.

So sad to see my characters go... but it is for the best I think. At least it will be equal for all! And we get some nice rewards :) Just hope the pet will not be too randomized so we all get useful stats from it :)

 Hey, I'm gonna lose all my ingame progress and gotta start from scratch, how satisfying! I do not polemicize against wipes in general, I am mostly upset about the way they handled it: firstly they said there will be no wipe at all, then they're trying to avoid wipes/reroll but keep stuff and now they announce their 'Wipeaggedon' from nowhere and all the players get in return is a pet and four costumes, that's just cynical.

But that's just the opinion of one single player, if you're ok with this, fine.

Did you guys honestly think there wouldn't be a wipe? HAHAHA! I expected more than five wipes and Trendy is doing a great job at keeping that number to a minimum.

Do you get the skin for the hero you have lvl 25 or do you have to have all heros lvl 25 for the skins?

 I see no problem about a wipe (needed, btw) with more than 850h playing hours, it's an alpha. What did you expect? keep all the items/exp you got "free" with lot of bugs? :S

Loved the vod of the stream. I've got 1 question thou, the intent and the ideia behind the Nightmare 1-4 scheme of things is for players to fully gear on Nightmare 1 and be properly ready before beind able to progress into the next Nightmare Tier,

So what's there to make it so that players can't simply join an higher tier of Nightmare mode than the one they are able to clear by themselves, and leech out of players that have already gone through the gearing up process ?

I am really excited about the upcoming patch! and leveling up to 50!

I have 362 hours in and there isn't much left to do really, I log in to hatch my pets and do the daily and then I join lower level players games cause it's exciting.

I have deleted some of my heroes at least 3 times, and it was fun leveling them back up and getting loot.

The first time I did it just to change the name of one of them, but it was so fun I kept doing it.

End game players like myself are already bored and now can look forward to this wipe with great excitement, but newer players who are just now starting to be able to do 25+++ maps and maybe have a few legendary items may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under them.

So I say let those players vent their frustration and let them be angry, don't try to tell them they shouldn't be upset because they are playing alpha. This will not make them feel better.

Besides if they say they will delete the game and never come back, it's just because they are upset. When the new patch gets here do you think they will be able to stay away? 

They will come back - wouldn't you?
