Title: Dragon's Dogma Online
Post by: Linkrlz on January 27, 2015, 08:42:37 PM
You all remember how good the PS3 game was right? Here's hoping on news for a Western Release

Just as a reminder that the original game wasn't a PS3 exclusive.
 Anyway, who is volunteering to be that one player that yells out: ''Am I to become a living statue?'' for this?

Yeah, I saw this yesterday.  They'd better keep that petrification status intact!

Hm, wish they were working on a sequel instead. Petrification in MMOs is almost always lackluster temporary fare.

When it comes to MMOs though, we can normally always expect freeze or TS as a way to disable characters temporarily. I wouldn't be so picky unless you're not big on the kind of games altogether.

I know it's been a long time, but the launch trailer for this game did in fact have a Cockatrice in it.  No word on if the status ailment comes with it, but it comes out in Japan on Monday so we'll probably find out soon enough!

I'm 75% certain the petrification effect will return. I have been watching this game from my Youtube subscription list of some people who got into the Beta and the game seems to borrow the very same engine from the original game. It also has the potential to be a very good MMORPG just from the smooth animations and solid combat system, also well-translated into MMO form.

While I do wish the freeze effect could function similarly to the petrification effect(albeit a bit faster in it's icy spread to be realistic), the freeze effect in this game so far doesn't seem to have changed, but that is good.

Brief petrify at 1:16

Looks like you can't freely move into your preferred posing during the final moments before fully petrified. Nonetheless, still looks to be a good effect.

Aw, that's slightly disappointing.  Oh well, can't win them all.

Bumping since I've got some videos I took of the freeze and petrify.  Apologies for low res.

Freeze:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWiAzmBr7aw

Freezing still has the same effect from the previous game, though this time it lasts much longer, unless you button mash to get out.  You can access freezing towards the beginning of the game via Skeleton Mage enemies, who first appear outside the Pawn Cathedral.  The cast a spell which creates an obvious blue circle on the ground, giving you ample time to step in an pose.  If you manipulate where you trigger the circle to appear, you can get frozen by the spell just outside of their casting range, ensuring they don't keep trying to kill you while you enjoy the view.

If you have any pawn allies with you, they can run up and break you out, and as far as I know there's no way to stop them from doing this.  In addition, they are quite good at avoiding the magic circles, so it's hard to get them the ice treatment.  HOWEVER, if you open the photo mode, pawns stop moving, so if you time it right you can get them in the radius as well.  Unfortunately, they automatically shake off the freeze after only a few seconds.


Petrify:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTzl_CURQic
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpRCgbisukI

Petrify is far different from the original game.  Instead of the slow transformation, you become immobilized as soon as you are effected by the status.  Your character flails around for a few seconds, which is your window to use a curative item to remove the status.  After that window expires, you are considered 'dead' - your HP drops to zero, and the screen for revival options comes up.  (DD:O is a free-to-play game, so you can pay real money to respawn whenever you die).  As you can see from the videos, the revival screen is incredibly intrusive and is a real mood-killer.  As far as I know there's no way to hide it.

The nice thing (at least for me) is that the statues DO NOT shatter after a few seconds.  If you get a party member petrified, they stay there for a good three minutes or so.  Human players will be have the option to revive, or be sent back to the nearest inn after their time is up if they do not.  Pawns will obviously not have this option, though your PC can expend revival items to bring them back.  As with human players, after a period of time pawns also automatically despawn, but it is several minutes.  Sadly, they continue playing their voice clips even while petrified, begging your PC to cure them.

So there's good and bad.  Sadly they only monster I've found thus far to inflict petrify is a cockatrice, which is tough enough that you can't just ignore it while you enjoy your sculptures.  Waiting for it to be at critical HP before getting your party petrified is an option, allowing you to kill it off before their time limit comes up.


Finally, the game also has a 'Golden' status.  This is only inflicted by end-game bosses, as far as I am aware, and I've yet to encounter it.  It has the same functionality as the petrify status in terms of game mechanics.  I've also got plenty of screenshots of both freezing and petrify (higher res than the videos), which I'd be happy to share if you hit me up on discord.

If you do happen to encounter a boss that inflicts the gilded status, please upload it!

Excellent work! Thanks for sharing with us!

I take it you used an English translating patch for the JP game? The game is not out in the West.


Title: Re: Dragon's Dogma Online
Post by: mangoman on February 26, 2017, 01:23:21 PM
Yes, the game is Japan-only, and checks for a Japanese IP when logging in.  You need to set up a VPN to get around that.  I followed instructions I found on the Dragon's Dogma Online Reddit forum to get everything set up.  There is a translation patch, but it only covers the basics - UI, item/location names, some of the quests, and most of the class skills.  The game is free to play and available on PC, though paying real money gets you a score of unfair benefits over free players. 

And yes, once I get to a gold-inflicting boss, I'll be sure to capture footage.  The game is a lot of fun, so I'm taking it slow and enjoying myself, but obviously the ASFR content is a very nice bonus!

I love the freeze video!!

Please can you upload a petrification video of the girl, but with that costumes. In your petrification videos the girl doesn't show much skin XD.

Here's another video (I figured out how to save it in higher quality) with some different outfits on the girls.  Took me a while to convince my last pawn to get petrified, so it's a bit longer than necessary.

Does the poison effect in the Online game make your character freeze up and sprout into cordyceps fungus? What the hell is going on in this video?

I've taken some screenshots with the in-game function for it, but I'm kinda too lazy to organize and upload them.  If you poke me on Discord I'd be happy to show a few.  I made a post about my chatroom here: http://medusaprojectonline.com/forum/index.php?topic=3315

I haven't gotten that far, but I think that's the 'corruption' status effect in action.  Like being petrified, it seems to be an instant-death condition if not cured.

Okay, I got a lot of requests for screenshots, so I bit the bullet and dug up my old imgur account and figured it out.  Here you go.

Ice:

Stone:

Should I take more screenshots, I would add them to the existing galleries rather than making a new post about them, so if for some reason you're interested I guess just keep the link handy and check them now and then.

Enjoy.

Heads up. This game's servers are going to shut down this Winter. You won't be able to download the game after the 11th this month, so download the client if you're interested in experiencing the ASFR content yourself.
