Patch Notes 16-Aug-2022

  • Bugfix: Ebony/molten speed bonus now applies to hitched animals
  • Bugfix: New Necklaces from treasure hunting are now improvable.
  • Bugfix: Unique skulls are now decorations.
    • Unique hats: Crown of the Troll King and Goblin Leader War Bonnet will now no longer show leather as the tool required to imp them when viewed in inventory.
  • Bugfix:  It is no longer possible to open dirty caskets/sealed bottles that you did not drop/place.
  • Change: Archaeology and Restoration Rebalance
    • Getting runes will now be slightly easier when combining archaeology fragments.
    • The following actions now reduce the chance to receive runes:
      • Using the incorrect tool on restoration steps
      • Failing an identify action
      • Failing a combine action
    • Instantly identified fragments will now give a better chance of runes.
    • Wood fragments will now say wood instead of birchwood.
    • When combining a basic metal item the chance of iron is now improved at higher levels.
    • When combining an alloy metal item the chance of steel is now improved at higher levels.
    • When getting runes or casts on combined archaeology items it will now consider an item a tool before a weapon if it is considered both. This prevents tools that are also weapons from getting only weapon runes and casts.
    • Rebalanced casts on combined archaeology items to be considerably higher power on average and based on restoration skill.
    • The odds of getting a spell cast on a restored item have been roughly cut in half.
    • It is now possible to get 5 runes where a bug prevented this in the past.
    • A hatchet is now considered a tool and will get tool runes.
    • A bush will no longer detract from a tile’s archaeology value.
    • The top tier of fragments has been made possible to achieve by easing the requirements a bit.
    • A bug preventing sand from becoming investigable more than once per server restart has been fixed.
    • Enchantment success runes now reduce difficulty instead of increasing bonus.
    • Mend runes are now any target
    • Tool tips will now show rune names and abbreviations
    • All bulk items will not get runes or casts so they can be stored easily
    • Planks have been added to the drop table
    • Arrow shafts have been removed from the drop table
    • Partially identified fragments will now better reflect what they are (wooden, metal, weapon, etc)
    • You can now smelt items with enchantments and runes by confirming the action via a popup.
    • Mini tokens will now indicate direction to their associated deed.
    • Tin ore no longer shows as a metal fragment on second stage of investigation
    • Transferring servers with unidentified fragments should no longer make them revert to iron and steel.
    • Crude shovels will no longer be wooden fragments
    • Moon metal fragment drop rate in caches has been doubled
  • Change: Difficulty and quality formulas for various nature actions have been changed to use your entire skill value instead of only the whole number portion.
    • For example, at 99.5 skill, quality and difficulty will be based on that value of 99.5 instead of just 99. This will usually result in slightly higher-quality results when foraging, botanizing, harvesting from trellises, picking pottery planters, and searching for fishing items (grubs, wurms, bark, and twigs).
  • Change: The “Improve an Armour Piece to 80QL” journal goal can now be completed by improving a shield to 80QL, not just body armour. The goal’s text has been changed to reflect this.
  • Change: Ore ql is no longer capped at 99.9999 and can now be mined at 100 with rare+ or imbued tools if you have 100 skill.
  • Change: The  /me chat command no longer works in Help related channels.
  • Change: Updated time until able to breed timer to be accurate and use a timestamp.
  • New: Added a new title for 100 in Hammer skill. Congratulations Nineol!
