Game Update Notes: May 6th, 2018

:wave: Hello Realmers! We've been working on bringing features forward from MW progressively over the past few weeks and we have a content patch ready to share with many of those changes. Expect changes to increase in frequency as we move toward our June 1st launch for Finvarra's Fortress.

Without further ado, here are the latest changes:


Dungeons
  • Patched in updated dungeons from MW (Naktos, USH, Forgotten Dungeon, Holy Caves)
  • Brought in Heroic Dungeons from MW. These are only accessible by Noble Citizen accounts.
  • Patched in The Foundry from MW
  • Brought in Dungeon loot tables from MW
  • New Newbie dungeon, Rat's Nest, has been added. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Open World
  • Added open world loot tables and open world bosses from MW. Open World bounties will drop as a Statue for now, but this will be changed in the near future
  • Open World Quest NPC's added to West Leinster for Hand In
  • Wardens and Paladins received a buff to make them less of a snoozefest
  • Minotaurs have once again fled to Forgotten Dugeon

Items
  • Removed HoZ from drop table
  • Removed Magic Mace from stores and drop tables
  • Removed newer NG magic items from drop table. This means DP and Konge drop tables are temporarily disabled.
  • Changed NMH Necro Boost to 15% from 100%. This keeps it best in slot for Necro still but not as much of a huge advantage over the Necro Hood.
  • Changed Mage Hat Boost to 15% all circles from 50%. This still is best in slot for nearly all magic circles but other hats remain competitive.
  • Changed sell values on many items to decrease gold inflation
  • Removed Magic Amulets from drop table and from vendors. These were amulets that gave bonus to specific SDM circles such as Elemental Amulet.

Legacy Server
  • Added glowie boots of nimbleness and tripping back into loot table as a rare drop
  • Added a glowie version of all mundane helms as a rare drop
  • Added T-Sash into the loot table as a rare drop

Miscellaneous
  • Hot Zones are live. Hunting in a Hot Zone will grant you 50% bonus experience if you are a Noble Citizen. Hot zones rotate every day to encourage exploration!
  • The Memorial is back. Visit it by using the lever at the East Leinster teleporter.
  • Updated AI for Minotaurs and Wardens
  • Capped permanency and enchant at 189 SDM
  • New loading splash screen on client
  • Animation speed increase changes are in the client now! Press F12 to increase the animation speed and F11 to decrease.

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on the above changes after you've tested them!

The best way to do that is via our Forums or inn our Discord

Development Update: 04/27/2018

Greetings Realmers!

This week has been pretty busy on some behind the scenes work that doesn't correlate to a lot of excitement for you all, but it does help to develop a stronger foundation for the product that we are planning to deliver to you. We've made some progress on some things like name reservations (yep we think we have a plan for this now), updating world files to bring back the nostalgic layout of the towns, and a whole new magic item progression system. There will be more on this in the next couple of weeks but for now our number one priority is to get the old town layouts back, add in the existing heroic dungeons, and completing the name reservation system.

Finvarra's Fortress (BETA)
  • Adjusted Spell Damage Modifier to increase spell damage as characters go up in level and skill.
  • Fixed bug where SDM increase was not being applied properly.
  • Level set SDM cost modifier so that spells were not too expensive to cast.
  • Added initial shrug chance to fear spell.
Known Issues
  • Some of the the links from the game client will take you to defunct web pages. One of these being the "Sign Up" button when you first launch the client.

Development Update: 04/20/2018

Greetings Realmers!

The last few days have been a whirlwind and we've neglected to let you all know about some of the changes that we have implemented. I would like to take a few moments to address this.

Finvarra's Fortress (BETA)
  • Level 1, 300, 600, and 900 weapons added to the test vendor. The names and attributes of these weapons may change drastically as we get closer to the launch of the new server. For now we would like to just ask you all to test the "Weapon Procs" and attributes to let us know how well or bad they're performing with respect to the level requirements.
  • Level 200 / 300 Armor pieces have been added to the test vendor. The names and attributes these armor pieces may change drastically as we get closer to the launch of the new server. For now we would like to just ask you to test that all of the items work per the descriptions.
  • Group XP Bonus has been added; When you group with other players you will receive a small incremental group XP bonus depending on the number of players in your party. This feature will be available for all account types as outlined here: https://realmserver.com/game_information/account_types
  • Added item insurance; this will substitute your gold or mana in the place of losing an item on death. In the event you do not have enough gold or mana to cover you will lose an item.
  • Removed account validation for 'paid' accounts.
  • Fixed back-end query that ignored homes without a 'paid' status.
  • Daggers, Throwing Daggers, and Claws now have a Dexterity based modifier, Short Swords have an Intelligence based modifier, and all remaining weapons have a Strength based modifier.
Despothes' Grove (LEGACY)
  • Fixed a bug where player's could inadvertently crash the server through dialog box interaction.
  • Adjusted player and house save data routines to happen more often to prevent item loss during crashes, added some event driven player and house saving to address "duping".
  • Added "chat-bot" to the Discord server to relay the chat from the game to Discord. (One-way Only)
