PTS Datamining – First look at Tartaric Depths (spoilers!)
Woo! Finally, a large 908MB Patch arrived on the PTS on January 12, 2017, and with it comes a volcanic eruption of new assets! We have a new zone event boss, tons of Tartaric Depths assets, new eternal equipment, new Summerfest gear, new dimension items themed around Alittu and the Tenebreans, and I’m positive there will be a lot more on the way
In summary, so far I’ve identified:
- Zone level models for Tartaric Depths are in, but mostly untextured
- At least 2 Tartaric Depths boss models are present
- New “Tenebrean” zone event boss
- 6 new Eternal Weapons
- 2 new Eternal Shields
- Summerfest mace & staff
- Tok’s themed portrait
- New dimension items (I have not textured these yet) – ~50 or so new items so far
- New Mariel-Taun day costume armor (no textures to pair with it yet)
Today’s post will focus purely on Tartaric Depths. Let’s dive in!
Tartaric Depths is the new 10-man T1 raid zone for Starfall Prophecy. Here, we will be braving the depths of the Tartaric Fissure to confront Queen Carli before she unleashes yet another potential apocalypse, essentially finishing what Duke Acarax was supposedly going to start, though this time without the influence of Ahnket (we think).
The Zone assets I have break the zone into 4 distinct areas: Entrance, Ruins, Spider Cave, and the “Hellscape Enigma Dragon” room. Given the zone assets, it does seem reasonable that there are 4-5 bosses in this zone. Let’s delve in!
“Hellscape Enigma Dragon” Room
Two boss models have currently been datamined. Tarjulia is a lava spider, definitely the boss of the “Spider Cave” section. Then we have the final dragon boss, who is in the concept art from the Starfall Prophecy web site. This guy is labeled “hellscape_enigma_dragon” in the game files.
That is it for the Tartaric Depths content so far. More to come soon(tm), specially once more boss models start being patched in the coming weeks.
