Milestone: DE2 Chapter III is now 50% complete
I'm happy to announce that development is slightly ahead of schedule and that Nahla's half of chapter 3 is finished.

I have to say, I'm especially proud of the first valorous encounter.. It is definately the most grandeous boss fight I have ever designed, and I think people are going to really enjoy it. Not to mention the rewards >.>

Now work begins on Zeno's half, and what an epic half it will be. Not only will it have a valorous encounter of its own, but you will be be seeing some familiar faces, as well as some serious plot development and the introduction of the transformation system. Two new party members will round out the "Full" version of Zeno's party, as they travel onward through Daerok to their fated encounter with Lord Maron in Lahana.

Look forward to the beta in winter 2014, and a full release early 2015.

Hoozah!

Will be looking forward to it. Are the valorous encounters something you will meet naturally or will they require exploration?

Hey Bio,

There are two tiers of Valorous Encounters. Story Tier & Savage Tier. The Story Tier fights will take place throughout the main storyline, and will present themselves to you without exploration.

The Savage Tier fights all take place in endgame, and will require exploration as well as various prerequisites.

In that case, what is the difference between the Story Tier encounters and just boss encounters?

Valorous Encounters take place in optional dungeons that you must willfully enter. Once inside, you will no longer be able to save or access the menu. You will need to make it through the entire dungeon, and then defeat the boss, to clear the valorous encounter.

The difficulty will be immense, but the rewards will be far greater than a standard boss fight.

Certain side-quests and secret characters may require prerequisites that may include clearing various valorous encounters.

Savage Tier Valorous Encounters will be even more difficult, and can be considered the endgame of DE2.

Sounds like some Disgaea level grinding will be required for some of them. Oh well, the bigger the challenge the bigger the reward.
Not sure about not accessing the menu tho, does it mean you can't heal between fights?

Yes, you will not be able to heal between fights.. This is by design, to incentivize skillfull dodging and planning ahead. Technically, you can make it through the entire dungeon to the boss without fighting one trash mob.. They are short but unforgiving dungeons, practice will be required to get through unscathed.
