Difficulty Slider allows players to adjust the difficulty of nearly any instanced map to "Hard", "Very Hard" or "Elite" settings, making the enemies much tougher.


Usage[]

The Difficulty Slider allows players to adjust the difficulty of nearly any instanced map to "Hard", "Very Hard" or "Elite" settings, making the enemies much tougher. In return the players get increased experience, resources, and drop quality. Players can adjust their difficulty by right-clicking in the character HUD and selecting a different setting.

Positions[]

Position 1: Hard[]

When set to Hard, all enemies in the instance map gain the “Dangerous!” buff, which increases their hit points and damage, as well as the experience and resources granted for their defeat.

Position 2: Very Hard[]

When set to Very Hard, all enemies in the instance map gain the “Lethal!” buff, which increases their hit points, damage, resistance to damage, dodge chance, avoidance, and critical strike chance and severity. If you happen to survive, there is a bonus to the experience and resources granted for their defeat.

Position 3: Elite[]

This level was added on the 08/24/10 "Summer Update". Hit Points, damage, chance to dodge, critical hit chance, movement speed, perception, distance, and aggro range are all increased at this difficulty level. The enemy also has a modest hold resistance, knockback resistance, and a slightly reduced time between attacks.

Bonus Loot[]

In addition, certain boss fights now drop improved gear when defeated on Hard or Very Hard difficulty. At this time, the Bonus Loot functionality is limited to the three bosses in The Serpent Lantern – Draconis, Viperia, and the Spirit Serpent. Once Cryptic decides that the scaling and values are where they want them, we expect to expand this feature to most (if not all) bosses that live on instanced maps.

Improved items grant extra bonus values to one or two stats, at a value equal to 1/3rd (for Hard) or 2/3rds (for Very Hard) of an equal level, equal color Secondary item. While the specific number of points of stats might not be extremely high, any stat or pair of stats can be added, including stats that normally can’t be found on a certain slot, or paired together.
