Patch Notes 30/MAY/19



  • Change: Changes to phantasms spell. (See Notes)
    • You can no longer cast phantasms on spirit guards on all servers
    • Phantasms will no longer target bred, cared for or branded animals on pve servers.
  • Change: Most spells including heals and buffs will no longer work on uniques, weakness and smite will still work as before
  • Change: Old type HoTAs will disabled a short timeframe after the update.
  • Change: Some Journal issues addressed. (see notes)
    • Added % value to skill points needed.
    • Made adjustments so some past legendary kills are credited.
    • Previously built colossi should now count.
    • Previously built guard towers should now count.
  • Change: Fishing and Fishing items changes.
    • All parts should take less damage overall.
    • Rod will take even less damage.
    • Reel damage modifier tweaked slightly up to be closer to new rod modifiers, but should still take less overall.
    • Fights with fish shouldn’t last 15+ minutes of back and forth pulling when low on strength compared to the fish you’re catching. Weighted them slightly so the fish pull away at 75% of what the player pulls in, so should be weighted towards being caught more than a flat 50/50 battle for eternity.
    • Net fishing gets an extra skill tick on catching to bring the gain back in line with old fishing (slightly), and gives use to CoC on a net.
  • Change: Combat AI Improvements for Deathcrawler, Eagle Spirit & Sol Demon.
    • Deathcrawler, Sol Demon and Eagle Spirit have some new moves that they will do in combat.
    • Slightly tweaked their butcherable table to make a bit more sense.
    • Previous Uttacha changes will now work on all servers, along with these changes.

  • Bugfix: You can no longer drag items other than amphorae into an amphora rack.
  • Bugfix: You can no longer drag paper from bulk containers into an archaeology journal.
  • Bugfix: A hot, unfuelled bee smoker will no longer say (smoking).
  • Bugfix: Adjusted threshold for actions while moving preventing spell casting while in motion in addition to other actions.
  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue which prevented you from drinking from a well if it had an item placed upon it.
    • Please note that the well will not fill to max capacity as the volume of the item placed on it’s surface will displace some of the liquid.
  • Bugfix: Only one lurker spell can be cast on a pendulum. See Notes.
    • Existing pendulums with multiple enchants will keep their enchantments, but only the top lurker cast in the examine message will work.

    • Players with the newbie food buff will receive an even bigger bonus.
  • Journal Bugfix: Destroy 25 veins via mining has been fixed to include those veins which become depleted instead of destroyed (as when you mine out an ore at a cave entrance and it turns to rock instead of being destroyed.)
  • Journal Bugfix: Restore 250 items from fragments should trigger properly.
  • Journal Bugfix: Old creature skill achievements will be added to the journal for a better baseline for older accounts. Info below:
    • Upon first login after this update, the server will check all old creature slaying achievements and total their count. If the count is higher than the amount required to trigger the journal goal it will set it to that new value. This will not be an exact count of creatures slain as some creatures do not have their own individual achievement for tracking kills, but this will provide a better baseline for older accounts.
