What’s an Ultra Slayer, exactly?
An Ultra Slayer is a monster-specific weapon unique to IPY.
Much like a regular slayer, the Ultra Slayer inflicts special effects on a group of monsters (but NOT players). The Ultra Slayer is a bit different, however.
Instead of simply doing double damage to a monster type, the Ultra Slayer has a set chance to fire a magical effect, much like oldschool charged magical weapons such as Dragon’s Breath weapons. Rarely, you can even find an Ultra Slayer that fires an AoE version of its effect. Now that’s a spicy meatball!
We’re working toward a viable PvE endgame for 2.5, and adding via endgame rewards is a major part of that. For now, lesser Ultra Slayers can show up in game in any number of ways, from Seer quest rewards to major event bosses or anything else.
We’ve scheduled three great additions for the IPY 2.5 prepatch, and there’s plenty of room for a fourth.
What would YOURS be? So far, Pet Bonding has been suggested… and I’m a big fan of the idea.
