Today I would like to bring to you a broom update! I know awhile ago I talked about brooms using the Elytra method. Because we have other plans for Elytras in the future, we have decided to go another route with brooms! NathanWolf, our amazing Minister for Magic, has graciously fixed our poor brooms! They should be more controllable once again! Here is how they work now:
1. Brooms now have a duration of time where you can ride them. However you CAN get rid of this timer once you have mastered said broom. (More on this later)
2. Each broom type will have different varying speeds, handling, and control.
3. To make a broom fly faster you aim your broom down (like you are leaning on the broom).
4. To make a broom fly slower you aim your broom up (like your pulling back on the reigns of a horse).
5. Shift will dismount you from your broom.
6. You will notice that brooms that can achieve a faster speed become harder to control after awhile... so this leads me to our next step in our broom evolution!
Broom skill will soon be a thing! Basically you will be getting better at riding the broom you own. I am currently working on a way to level up your skill per broom. Each skill level will grant better handling and a bit more speed and control!
Mastering a specific broom removes the duration that you can last on that broom. After you master it you can fly until you want to stop!
7. We are gating the purchase of brooms per year now, Certain brooms can only be bought at certain years and above!
- Year 1 = Bluebottle
- Year 2 = Cleansweep
- Year 3 = Comet
- Year 4+ = Nimbus
- Year 6+ = Firebolt
I feel it more rewarding to allow players time to master the lower end brooms to really appreciate the higher end ones!
