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)
- Customer Service support form added. More info here: https://realmserver.com/forum/announcements/getting-support-for-the-realm
- Added the ability to reveal house and strong box passwords. More info here: https://realmserver.com/forum/announcements/viewing-your-old-house-and-strongbox-passwords
- 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. For more information on how to properly link, register a new account, and perform maintenance on said accounts visit here: https://realmserver.com/game_information/getting_started
- Reports of SDM increase not working on Finvarra's Fortress (BETA) will be addressed soon.
