Hello everyone, I'm happy to announce v1.31 of Ladder Slasher. It's been six years since the last complete client rewrite when we switched from Flash to HTML5. When I initially did that rewrite it was intended only to be a proof of concept, but it ended up working so well that it stuck with us for much longer. I've finally gotten around to doing a full client rewrite to better facilitate current and future updates as well as planned features and changes. Below are some brief highlights of the new things in v1.31, and then the full summary. Just like last time, this isn't an exhaustive description of every change, but I did put good effort in to document the changes as I progressed, though I'm sure there are a few things you'll notice that were not mentioned.
Huge thanks to
for their help testing, ideas, and feedback during this process!
Updated tool tips and inventory:
You will notice you don't see the use or trash icons. They will appear once you select/drag an item. This is in addition to the new tool tips which highlight the equipped item.
Completely redesigned and updated market:
Updated the market search, display fg cost on items as well as the tool tips now show the end time.

Full summary of changes:
You can now Suffusence an essence with a quantity of 2 or more by itself to combine two of them into a single essence that is +1 magic level of the original stack

You can now restart the listing time of an item on the market by dragging the item to the item box on the sell tab and leaving cost the same, and clicking the Edit Item button.
With this feature, you can list an item at any cost, pay the fee upfront (if applicable), then as long as you refresh the item before it expires only have to pay that fee once! You can also continue to drop the price, if you desire, with each edit automatically re-extending the listing duration.
* Ladder reset still expires all items. Items that expired have to be taken to your inventory then relisted with any applicable fees paid again, as usual.
You can now drag a market/vault item or equipment onto an equipment or item slot to take that item to your inventory. Previously you could only take them by dropping them to an equipment slot regardless of the item type
