Discover the world of Naïca

Recommended Posts

Naïca is growing month after month and a lot of questions arise from the community: PvE, guilds, dungeons, races… We hope this will bring you some answer. Keep in mind that Naïca is currently in development so we won’t go too deep into the details and everything is subject to change.

PvE - Player versus Environment

Naïca, the world-crystal

You will start your adventure on Lazul, a region of the planet Naïca with a lot of different areas: fields, swamps, forests, village… Even though life is pretty calm in Lazul, you will soon learn from the Elder that a threat may destroy everything you know. Saving the world will not be an easy task and the secrets of Naïca are well hidden. Will you be up to the challenge?

Every region of Lazul and Naïca will have its own creatures, monsters and NPCs giving you quests. Accomplish quests and kill monsters to earn experience and find new gear to equip on your character.

Races

In Naïca, you will be able to play several races. Also, each of them will have a unique passive (we will disclose it later):

  • Vulpians: Clever and cunning, Vulpians know how to escape from every bad situations. But be careful, they often have a bad reputation despite having a cute little face...

  • Denelites: Universally appreciated, Denelites are well-known to be people you can rely on. If you need one of them, check out the tavern!

  • Ophimanders: Legend tells that they would descend from dragons but no one has ever seen one thus far. Either way, do not underestimate them.

  • Cerbalis: If you are looking for a fight, ask any Cerbalis and he will be happy to help. Do not try to befriend them by giving them meat or they will feel insulted.

  • Azralians: Azralians are the true experts of camouflage. Some parents can spend hours looking for their children after playing hide-and-seek.

Weapons and Armors

Weapons and armors will all have different statistics and require a certain level to be equipped by the players. You may find the same weapon (or armor) twice with the same required level and with identical or different statistics.

There will be three types of weapons in Naïca (Swords, Bows and Staffs) while armors won’t have a specific type. No light, intermediate nor heavy armors. Every piece of armor will have different statistics and you’ll have to chose which one you want to wear accordingly to your gamestyle.

Classes and Skills

In Naïca you won’t have to choose a specific class when you’ll create your character because the system will be adaptive.

There will be three different skill trees, one for each type of weapon: Sword, Staff and Bow.

Every level you will earn a skill point that will allow you to unlock a new talent: an active skill, a passive skill or a statistic.

When you will unlock a talent in a tier, your choices at the next level will be either:

  • learn a talent from the same tier

  • learn a talent from a previous tier

  • learn a talent from the next tier belonging to the same skill tree

You will have to choose which talents you’re most interested in!

Alignment and Beliefs

Some of the quests in Naïca will have an impact on your alignment. You will have to make choices that will be related to Naide or Icaon, the two divinities of Naïca. Once brother and sister, they now fight through the ages and are always looking to increase their power. Your choices during the quests and in open PvP will decide on which side you will stand, so be careful.

Professions and Crafting

There will be professions in Naïca that will allow players to craft several types of items (weapons, armors, potions, etc…): Leatherworker, Woodworker, Blacksmith and Herbalist.

As said in the introduction, this is subject to change and we’ll tell you more about it in a few months.

Dungeons and Raids

Players will be able to team up to defeat dungeons and raids in Naïca. Several dungeons and raids will be infinitely repeatable while some others will have specific rules of repetition (once a week, once a day…): we’ll tell you more about that in due time.

Dungeons are instances with a party of 5 players: you will have to defeat the boss of the dungeon to be rewarded by golds and specific gears.

Raids on the other hand, are like dungeons but at a bigger scale. Your party will need to have more than 5 players and you’ll have to complete a list of objectives, including defeating several Bosses. The rewards will also be more important and you’ll get a better gear than in a dungeon.

Groups in Naïca will be up to 5 players unless you activate the Raid mode to expand the size of your party. If you are in Raid mode, you will only have access to objectives and locations specifically labelled as Raid. You won't be able to complete quests while being in Raid mode.

Trade

You’ll be able to activate the Street Vendor mode to allow other players to look at your store. They will be able to purchase your items while you play and the Street Vendor mode won’t work if you are disconnected. Also, one of the discussion channels will be solely dedicated to trade announcements between players.

Guilds

In Naïca you will be able to create or join a guild. A guild will allow you to play regularly with the same players and interact more easily: there will be a guild channel to discuss between members of the same guild.

When you create your guild you will choose :

  • the name of your guild

  • the tag of your guild

You will also be able to give ranks to the members of your guild.

PvP - Player versus Player

Honor, ranked games and leaderboard

Winning a game in PvP will make you earn Honor -the money in PvP- allowing you to purchase new items. When you win a ranked game (Arenas only) you will also earn specific points that will make you progress in the leaderboard.

Arenas: game modes and ranked games

The Arenas will allow players to fight in PvP with a group up to 5 players on a small map. There will be different game modes from deathmatch to objectives oriented.

In Arenas, there will be two types of matchmaking: normal games and ranked games.

Battlegrounds : game modes

Battlegrounds are bigger scaled maps, filled with more players than the Arenas. The maps of the Battlegrounds will be different from those for the Arenas. The game modes will only be objective oriented.

There won’t be ranked games in Battlegrounds.

Open PvP

Some areas in PvE will be open to PvP so you will be able to attack every players: you should be careful while walking through these areas!

We will share more informations about open PvP and the impact on the alignment later on.

Shop

Naïca will be free-to-play and will have an in-game shop: you will be able to buy cosmetics and items to progress faster in the game. The shop in Naïca won’t have items to make you stronger.

The closed Alpha of Naïca is due to early 2019. More informations will come in the coming months as the release of the Alpha comes closer.

Naïca will be released on PC (Windows, Linux), Mac, Android and iOS (cross-platform).

So does this mean that it is not pay to win? 😍

Let's make some Guilds before the Alpha

Probably won't happen, because we don't know nothing about game yet. If a guild was made now, no one would join and it would die by the time game had launched.

Of course not ✌️ 

That's awesome! Are you planning to keep it that way as well? 🤔 If so, how do you plan on maintaining that way? How will you say to people that no, you shall not buy experience or another certain kind of things?

Easy: they won't have the option to do so!
