    Default Quest Complete: The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot Enters Open Beta



    Guard thy-selves in armor, for it is time to make haste and travel to the land of floating sky castles on a Mighty Quest for Epic Loot. Yes, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is no longer a quest for merely those graced with closed beta access. Starting today, the action RPG has lowered its draw bridge and challenged everyone to invade each others halls and pillage the goods within.

    The open beta for The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot marks the end of a fairly lengthy closed beta in which Ubisoft made a surprisingly large amount of changes based on player feedback. In fact the open beta adds some of the largest changes the game has seen in recent months. With the open beta now underway players have been treated to an all new Open Creation system used in planning the defense of their castle. Previously, castles had several restrictions which capped players on how many minions they could place in one area or how close traps could be to one another. Using the new Open Creation system, Ubisoft says these changes will “minimize barriers on your creativity, and let your imagination become the only limit”.

    Ubisoft has also added a few IQ points to the castle’s creatures. Creatures are now susceptible to their master’s own traps and will actively attempt to avoid them. They will also attempt run in order to heal before returning to the fight. These changes make stacking large amounts of fire traps in one area particularly dangerous for nearby creatures creatures which will add a new layer of strategy when crafting your defense. Players will also be required to defeat their own castle before they can finalize the design, ensuring each person’s castle remains beatable.

    Players can choose from four characters to plunder with including The Runaway who became available in the open beta. The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is available to download through Steam with more information regarding the open beta changes found here.

    One thing that the article missed out on: they removed the upgrade/construction timers.

    A bunch of info about the open beta, I chuckled reading the bit about monetization. I'll probably download it in the future out of boredom.

    When I played a lot of people complained about people rarely testing their castle, especially at the lower levels. I wonder if this is still the case since building your own arena is such a major part of the game.

    Any professionals here care to chime in?

    The first castle I set up for the tutorial has been attacked a few dozen times within an hour of making it sooo... Also, turns out they removed the pay 2 win stuff, which is cool.

    Hmm, fair point, although that could just be because it's fairly fresh and went into OB, we'll see in a few weeks.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    The tags people placed in the store page had me in stitches. So glad I never bought into the game, apparently they have the wrong system requirements and basically say screw you if your settings are too low.

    welp, got a decent defense build going on right now. about 50+% success rate, although I got plans for a bullet-hell room involving flamethrowers, ballistas, and springboards for knights.

    overall like before, decent to good game, but really only in 1-2 hr bursts.

    I played this while it was in CB for a bit and I'll be redownloading; my only big put off back then is the waiting time for builds and now that they've removed that I'm hopeful.

    Yeah, that was one of my major complaints from beta as well.

    So is there party play in this game? Or do you just solo peoples castles? If there is party play i wouldnt mind teaming up with some people from here to go raid some hard castles.

    Everyone solo's everything. The main thing you do with friends is just raid each other or test each others designs. So in this game it's not so much that you have friends, but "friendly enemies".

    I think a big detraction is the lack of a trade function in this game. If you find some really nice loot that you can't use you can't just trade it for something that you can use.
