Update Notes - 6th August

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As announced, today's update is a small maintenance that fixes some issues. The update which is currently available on the test server needs some more testing and is planned to be ready for the live servers soon.

The update today includes the following:

Resolved several issues with the Arena access quest, hopefully it should work correctly this time, and this time we really mean it! (or poor Aquilus might meet with a very unfortunate end if he insists on being so troublesome in the future!)
Travel NPCs will no longer erroneously show the same destination multiple times
Altered the loot table of the Beguiler Demons in Potain so they are now dropping more appropriate loot.

Update Notes - 31st of July

Post  HappyKillmore on Wed Dec 03, 2008 12:51 pm

Update Notes - 31st of July

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBAT
We're now done with the majority of the process to completely equalize Male and Female damage. We've balanced the animation-lengths for all "white damage" attacks as well as all "combo finishers", and furthermore we've matched the animation length of "moving attacks" to the lengths of "stationary attacks". As a result players should now experience no difference in damage dealt or time needed to execute an attack based on what gender their character is.
Aborting multihit combos before they're finished won't activate their full effects anymore.
Pet commands should now be more responsive.
When aborting a multihit combo finisher, you now get a percentage of the full cooldown depending on how many hits you got in before the abort happened. (It's really in this time!)

CLASSES
All Assassin, Barbarian, Bear Shaman, Conqueror, Dark Templar, Guardian, Herald of Xotli, and Ranger combo damage and stamina costs have been rebalanced to match the newly adjusted animations.
Priest Archetype
Spirit Aegis will now give 0.5% invulnerability to Holy and Fire instead of 1% Fire with the first rank trained.
Assassin
Combos granted by feats should now deal significantly more damage than before.
Dark Templar
The Talisman Mastery buff will no longer be removed upon death if the proper feat is trained.
Guardian
Shield Sweep combo will now scale more consistently across the first three ranks.
Herald of Xotli
Pillar of Internal Flame Rank II is now a three-step combo (including combo starter) instead of an instant cast.
Necromancer
Bone Horde debuff now uses the proper icon in the debuff GUI.


ITEMS
Resolved an issue that caused item bonuses to not scale correctly.
Many items are now 'bind on equip' meaning that once equipped the item can no longer be traded.
Resolved the issue with raid gear that had lost it's bonuses in a previous update.
The bonuses awarded by gems have been rebalanced. Unfortunately some of the gem bonuses were originally applied incorrectly leading to situations where too much bonus was given, mainly for invulnerability rating. These gems have now been modified. The benefit of the different level gems has been also been amended though, meaning that higher level gems should now be better than the lower level versions.
All items Green+ are now Bind on Equip (BoE) or Bind on Pickup (BoP).
Items which are BoE/BoP should now state this fact below their item name in the mouseover tooltip. When these items are equipped and bound to the character, the text below the item name will change to reflect this. A message will now ask if you are sure when attempting to roll "need" on a Bind on Pickup item.

PVP
Players will now always see Massive PvP results, and the time left in a battle during battles. This information is displayed in the right top corner, below the minimap.

QUESTS
Field of the Dead: Changed the level on the quest Entourage from 52 to 47.
Field of the Dead: Changed the level on the quest Cleansing the Tomb from 53 to 48.
Khopshef Province: Forbidden Knowledge - The Crumbling Codex will now despawn after it is picked up.
Khopshef Province: Slave Cages will now show a visual effect when player is on the correct quest to interact with them.
Pyramid of the Ancients: New Quests have been added to enhance your questing experience. Bosses have been upgraded to present a challenge to solo (or small groups) of players. Pay careful attention to the items they drop - they could be the key to defeating more challenging enemies.
Pyramid of the Ancients: All quests should now be working.
Tarantia Sewers: Orphans in the Hovel - Galeria should now talk to you after you kill her captor.
Defeating Lord Atum-Keket in the Pyramid of the Ancients will now reopen the door to the Lord chamber.
The teleport altar behind Lord Atum-Keket will now be visible at all times.
The Master Torturer in Pyramid of the Ancients will no longer spawn multiple times in a row.

NPC / MOBS
Toirdealbach's Tomb has had its level range adjusted from 50-53 to 46-48. Loot in Toirdealbach's Tomb has been adjusted to fit the new level range of mobs.
Pyramid of the Ancients: The Harem Girls have been dressed up properly, and sexily!
Many of the spells used by raid bosses will now ignore line of sight-checks, thus making it impossible to avoid them by hiding behind pillars and such.
Many of the spells used by raid bosses will now be impossible to fully resist.
The Dark Flames breath attack used by Vistrix will now use normal line of sight checks.
The knockback strength on Kyllikki's Blizzard has been reduced.
Yakhmars adds have been modified, they will no longer stun players as they did.

TRADESKILLLS
Cloth Resource droprate in the world has increased somewhat.
The Resource and Building playfields (Lacheish Plains, Purple Lotus Swamp, Poitain) have new NPC camps that will drop tradeskill items previously only available through the Alchemist's Cache. Some of these encampments will aggro, some will not. This makes these zones more dangerous, but allows lower level players a chance to get the tier 1-3 resources they need.

WORLD DESIGN
Checkerboard textures should no longer appear on the ground throughout the world.

MOUNTS
The horse ability Hind Leg Kick will now have a 12 second reuse timer, like the other horse abilities.
The Skewbald Pinto Horse has had its stats adjusted to horses of the same tier and price.

GUI
The "Quests" tab in the quest journal should now indicate the current number of accepted quests and the total number of allowed quests.
An option to add a player to your ignore list was added to the "Add by name" dialog.
If your trade is rejected, you will receive an onscreen message.
Tooltips for NPCs on the map should now show up in the localized version of their names, instead of their default English names.
You can no longer trade while in combat mode.
You will see an onscreen message stating that a team member has joined your team.
Onscreen feedback for a failed attempt at a trade due to a full inventory has been tweaked.
Added a new option that allows the player to make his cloak invisible.
Strange or seemingly out of place text in the UI should be removed

GENERAL
Several causes of crashes and assert failures have been addressed and fixed.
Important notification sounds now won't be interrupted by other sounds.
A fix was implemented for item descriptions when switching between languages on the client.
Fixed an issue that would cause some playfields to be empty after logging out for some time, and then back in.
You can no longer send unlimited mail through the tradepost. If you send several mails and are informed via system message you cannot send any more, you will need for in-game time to pass before being able to send more mail.
Ignored users will no longer be able to send you mail.
Raid playfields will now kick players who are not in the raid.
Fixed some animations that weren't blending properly
The number of needed 'Fresh Kills' has been increased to 20.

Update Notes 23rd of July

Post  HappyKillmore on Wed Dec 03, 2008 12:45 pm

Update Notes 23rd of July

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today's update is aimed at helping address some of the memory leak issues that some users have been experiencing. This is a smaller than usual update as we are focusing on testing the upcoming batch of new content changes and additions that we currently have scheduled for next week. We know that the memory leak issue was affecting users game experience though and we didn't want to hold it back due to the testing on the other content so have decided to roll it out today on it's own.
Please note we are still looking into this issue as a priority and will be continuing to optimize this in future updates as well.

Also during the downtime we will be taking the opportunity to reset all characters feat training status, so in effect feat trainers will now treat you as if you have never reset your feats before and the cost will be back to it's starting point. Given the recent changes to many class feat trees and the current in progress changes to the combat system we felt this was something that would help players experiment with new and different setups for their characters.


Resolved several memory leaks.
Reset all characters feat training status.

GUI
Resolved an issue which was causing players to recieve a message stating that a spell was on cooldown and be unable to cast even though the cooldown had finished in the GUI.

The extra questionmarks that showed up in the confirmation message when deleting mail has been removed.
Fixed the layout of popup menus so the selection marker is not extending into the borders.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

26th of June - Update Notes

Player Character

Archetype
The bonus magical damage granted from Mystical Attunement has been doubled for Mages.
Spells that were incorrectly receiving bonuses from increased magical damage will no longer scale with increased magical damage. This adjustment will only affect such spells that were not meant to have scaling with the increased magical damage bonus. This resolves issues with enhancement spells like "Pact with Set" where the health loss was too high for the trade off for the bonus to damage.

Barbarians
An issue where Barbarians lose strength between the levels of 42 and 45 has been resolved. Please note that this is only between those specific levels.

Demonologist
Infernal Knowledge and Diabolic Insight will no longer appear as hostile spells and will still persist after death.

Despoil the Soul duration has been substantially increased and is no longer removed on death.

You will now have an initial stamina cost upon activation and shielding bonus rather than evade chance. Attacks and heals performed while in “Active Blocking” will also have a reduced effect.
Certain group buffs should no longer keep you in combat when your pets are also in the group.
Melee pets will now do splash damage.

Items
Bags that were not able to be equipped can now be equipped again.-
The two-handed edged weapon Earthwrack has now received its visual appearance back.

Polearms have been revamped based on player feedback. All polearms have been standardized to a new larger size.

NPC
Solo monsters, minibosses and bosses have been adjusted to be more of a challenge than what they had been previously for level 70 and up. The adjustments will not affect grouped and raid monsters in any way as this will only affect solo monsters. The change will ensure that the game is both entertaining and challenging at higher levels.
All players in a raid dungeon are now hated by the boss while the boss is under attack.
There should no longer be multiple versions of Aquilus in the Armsmans Tavern.
Champion of the Honorguard will now use his axe throw ability less frequently.
The adds for Vistrix and Yakhmars have had their AI revamped.

The Black Castle
This Kopshef Province dungeon has been completely redone. We encourage you to pay it a visit. Overcome the challenging new encounters along side with your companions and reap the rewards. This group instance is aimed for characters in the 30 - 35 level range.

Quest
Kidnapping and Torture: You can no longer interact with the palisades while the NPC is burning. This should help make it clearer when the quest can be completed.
Ante Up - Giants Approaching: When the timer expires you should be able to interact with the Rock to restart the event.
Master of Gargoyles: Cha will now thank you for completing the quest.
Bowls of Set: The quest should now properly display the goal names.
The Honoured Dead of Cimmeria: This quest has been removed and revamped into 4 smaller quests with new rewards. The new quests are "The Honoured Dead I," "The Honoured Dead II," "The Honoured Dead III," and "The Honoured Dead IV."

Tradeskills
Opening Alchemy Tradeskill book should no longer crash the client.
All vendor-supplied tradeskill resources have had their max stack size set to 20, with the exception of city-building components from vendors which have the max stack size of 100
Mages and Priest mobs will now drop an Alchemists Cache randomly, which contains random resources for the level-range where it was found. This will make it possible to obtain the resources that have not been dropping for alchemy. - Item was causing problems, deactivated until next update

General
You may now limit particles to show on (All / Raid Members / Team Members / Self).
