Patch Notes: 03/MAR/20

Recommended Posts

PatchNotes-1.png
 
  • Change: The first month 2 silver premium option has been removed. New first-time packages will appear in the shop soon instead.
    • Since its inception the 2 silver introductory offer has not served the purpose it was originally designed to do, allow new players to fund their first premium time within the game. After reviewing the information regarding first time purchasers and alts, we have decided to remove this option.
    • In the coming days we will be adding new first time packages of premium, 2 months for €7.99 or 2 months and 5 silver for €11.99 as replacement introductory offers.
    • With this we will be also beginning to phase out the existing referral system, with ingame purchases as well as the new introductory offers via the shop no longer giving a referral.
    • Ingame first time premium purchases will also no longer give 2 silver cashback, and instead will be available for 8 silver.
  • New:  Shield racks and Saddle racks have been added.
    • A saddle rack will hold empty saddles, bardings, and bridles.
    • Shield rack will hold any shield.
    • Both of these will only hold 15 items.
    • Both items will show woodtype
    • You can load 3 racks into a large cart and 12 into a wagon
  • New:  Level 100 Archaeology title added
  • New:  A guaranteed creation result (no fail) has been assigned to low difficulty mass production bulk items.
    • For mass production bulk items below a certain difficulty, the item will be created even on failure, and will never be created with a QL lower than either 20 or the player’s skill, whichever is lower. Material QL cap still applies.
    • This only applies for simple item creation, not complex (multi-part) item creation.
    • This pertains to non improvable bulk items.
    • Examples of items include
      • Plank
      • Shaft
      • Rivets
      • Stone brick
      • String of cloth
      • Large nails
      • Small nails
      • Rope
      • Thatch
      • Clay brick
      • Clay shingle
      • Pottery shingle
      • Wood shingle
      • Yarn
      • Rounded stone
      • Kindling
  • New: An effective QL curve of armour, shields, and weapons up to quality 70 has been added.

        • Difficulty of mining meteorites will be lower than mining an equivalent vein in a cave, leading to higher average quality of metals.
        • Meteorites will not change terrain, and will avoid landing on highways, deeds, structures, and deep water.
    • Libila
      • +15% skill gain to Religion & its sub skills, Alchemy & its Natural Substances, and Thievery & its sub skills.
      • +2.5%-10% skill gain to Body Strength, Soul Strength scaled by alignment.

        • Automatically targets your most severe wound, like healing spells.
        • Sets corpse as “butchered”, so there is a choice between this and butchering products.

        • Libila followers and priests gain +15% combat damage (similar to a Magranon priest) and a bonus to Consume Corpse (see above) for the duration of the rite.
    • General Rite Spell Changes
      • To encourage long-term diligence instead of “grinding” them and to encourage all followers to pray from time to time instead of relying on mass-praying priests, only prayers and sermons that could cause valid Faith gains increase deity favour, which is used to charge Rite spells.
      • Your god will still retain favor if you have 30 Faith as a follower or 100 as a priest; the prayer or sermon needs to be valid and check for Faith gain, but Faith gain itself is not necessary.
    • Improvements to deity favor gain:
      • Missions now give deity favour, partially scaled by difficulty of mission.
      • Prayers and sermons now give 3 times as much deity favour as they did previously
      • Spell effect visible to players in status icons and the spell effects window, showing which Rites are in effect and when they expire.

  • Change: Both versions of the Place command have been consolidated into one.
    • “Place” should now only appear in the main right-click menu, not under the “Move” submenu.
    • It will appear in the menu whenever it would have appeared in either place before.
    • It will automatically select the “drop & place” action when possible (i.e. when the player could pick up the item and drop it), and otherwise, it should use the slower action that moves the item across the ground in increments.
  • Change:  Uncaring for a creature via right-click option now has a pop-up question asking if you’re sure you want to do it.
  • Change: Certain month based calculations are now defined as 30 days instead of 28
    • A month in upkeep is a 30 day duration.
    • Upkeep email will be sent at the 30 day mark (was previously sent at 28 days hence some confusion).
    • Characters that have never been premium will be deleted after 3 months (90 days) absence instead of 84 days
  • Change: Trader changes including placement on deed only. See list below.
    • Traders can be placed on all servers now.

      • <1% – star gems, imbue potions, Rod of Transmutation, staff of land, pale mask, rare strange bone, cavalier helmet, plumed helm of the hunt, mask of the challenger, challenge statue
    • Magical Tome variations
      • Available variants: Red tome, Tome of incineration, Green Tome of Magic, Black tome, Blue tome, White tome, Libram of the night
  • Change:  Large planter box farming adjusted to be more in line with tile based farming.
    • Rake quality, rarity, player skill, as well as just general tending of the crop will both increase yield and quality of the growing crop, matching that of tile based farming.
    • Harvest quality will now match that of tile farming.
  • Change: Level 70 butchering title changed to Slicer for both male and female.
  • Change: Creator signatures have been added to tapestries.
  • Change: Mission items now require being the named item for the mission to advance

    • Grammar fixes:
      • Added ending punctuation for effect descriptions that were missing them, for consistency
      • In-game stats that need to be recognized as such now have initial caps, e.g. “Fighting” skill and “Combat Rating”
      • Some other minor grammar corrections to individual descriptions
    • Factual errors/Outdated info:
      • Corrected Excel description to properly state it’s a defensive CR bonus, not a parrying bonus
      • Corrected healing resistance description to say it applies to magical healing, not just the Heal spell
      • Corrected PoP Stamina of the Vibrant Light description; it’s not 50% of anything
      • Corrected PoK death protection description, as it does protect fighting-related skills, just not Fighting
      • Clarifications:
      • Clarified PoL healing (previous description made it sound like your natural regen is 1.5 times as fast, which is wrong or at least very misleading)
      • Clarified Goat Shape affecting climbing ability, not the skill itself (this is also in line with the spell description itself)
      • Clarified confusing phrasing on stamina ring effect description
      • Added “for new players” to all newbie buffs, previously only on one of them, for more clarity to newbies
      • Added specific numbers for sorcery damage reduction buffs, since the damage increase debuffs had them and this info is already public.
    • Misc.:
      • Several god-related effect names and descriptions were somehow swapped. For instance, Spirit Fervor was instead named “Deity combat rating bonus” with “Spirit Fervor” as the description. This has been rectified.

  • Bugfix: Mashed, minced, wrapped, and non-raw (cooked, steamed, fried etc.) food should no longer go into FSBs.
    • The following items will still go into bulk bins:
      • Flour
      • Dough
      • Filleted fish/meat
      • Diced meat
      • Chopped vegetables
      • Ground herbs and spices
  • Bugfix: Referrals should now properly grant 1500 marks upon redemption.
  • Bugfix: Another fix to resolve instant decay of anchors when raised.
  • Bugfix: Fixed a few issues with recipes and ingredients as stated below.
    • Prevent more salty and non-salty liquid foods from mixing. 
    • Corrected Lore option mistaking white sauce for mayonnaise
    • Show more information for simpler items in recipes e.g. “fish fillet <snook>”.
  • Bugfix:  You can no longer take a portion of honey or use the place keybind on liquids.
  • Bugfix: Fixed some combat issues resulting in the priority issues change.
  • PvP Change:  Elevation is now a Premium Only server.
    • If you are currently on Elevation and not premium you will be given a chance to leave the server for either your Home Server or Freedom Isles.

This means we won't be facing the horse's butt when zooming back in or is something different?

 Oh still a nice QoL improvement.

 

Guessing the butt facing could be caused by the fov setting i am using the max one which is 120 i think.

Just to be clear, that only applies to characters that *never* were premium, right?

Does this apply to NEVER PREMIUM accounts only? Or, to any account that stops paying premium? Bluntly, will non-premium storage alts, who had been premium at one time, be deleted after 90 days of non-premium status?

It's about characters that have never been premium, it's just a change to the time it uses, not to the actual mechanic.

The Golden Mirror has been added to traders for 15 silvers.

While I really like this change, I feel a bit bad about the 70k marks I spent on these just 1 month before they are added for silver.
Is this something that can be refunded?

I ahve high fc and carp and leatherworking etc so wondering where the recipe is. 😜 I hope you are not expecting us to figur this out ourselves its  near 2:30 am and too tired to bugger around with figuring it out like you usually make us do.

With the price of 35 silver and pre-trader deed cost of 1.25s, the payback is 11 years 8 months. You can’t reduce deed cost to under 1 silver per month. 
 

A 1 year payback period is if you start at around 12 s/month (reduces to 9)

 

This change is geared toward large deeds.

Is there going to be another restart soon? I heard that the saddle and shield rack recipes will be added then but I don't want to wait another week to make them - tried everything I can think of to make them - do you need 70 plus fc ?
