Survival against the odds – the rogue bites back
The rogue has always been a bit of a fan favourite. With high speed and a scary damage output, it has often been the go-to choice for new players and those wanting to slash their way through the content at ridiculous levels of hyper speed. Despite having the lowest health of all the paths, the rogue has always shone through and, more often than not, has left its warrior and mage counterparts in the dust.
Potent evolution – the mage levels up in DQ4
The mage has always been something of an odd ball in past DestinyQuest books, a sort of inbetweener, combining some of the high damage output of a rogue with the durability of a warrior. Their access to a myriad of spells means that they’ve always been interesting and fun to play, but perhaps lacked a true identity of their own.
Seeing red with the blood warrior
When planning DestinyQuest Book Four, I had the opportunity to strip down the three different paths (warrior, rogue and mage) and really analyse how I could make each of these paths more unique. Whilst that has always been my goal with the previous books, I never felt I really nailed it. With Book Four I set myself the task of focusing on the core abilities that define each path – and how these might synergise with other abilities and combos to provide unique builds.
Running the gauntlet - Dungeon Delves in DQ4
Book Four of the DestinyQuest series introduces a new hidden quest type, the Dungeon Delve. These are especially tough challenges that follow their own special combat rules.
DestinyQuest IV keeping on track…
It’s been a while since I wrote an update for the site, so I thought it was high time I brought everyone up to date with the progress on Book IV – and give a sneaky insight into one of its new game features.
