Recommended Posts

PatchNotes-1.jpg500
  • New: Added a craftable variant of the checkerboard
  • New: Rifts, Runes, and Imbues are now enabled on the Northern Freedom Isles
  • Change: Checkers Boards will now fit on more tables.
  • Change: Source Spring Rework
    • Source springs will now respawn periodically around servers with a finite amount of source.
    • Springs disappear once the source is collected from them.
    • Current source springs and fountains will also stop regenerating source in them and will disappear once empty of source.
    • Underground source springs that spawn upon breaking cave walls will now spawn more often.
  • Change: You must now be on the same floor level as the vehicle in order to embark it.
  • Change: Gathering Runes and Imbue rework for woodcutting and mining
    • Gathering Runes add +10% to the base quality, but that is capped at your skill level.
    • Imbues now add a bonus of up to 25% of the difference between the resulting quality and 100 at 100 imbue power. This can exceed your gathering skill.
    • The rune bonus is applied before the imbue bonus.
    • A breakdown of the imbue formula can be found here: https://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/181865-imbue-rework-formula
    • This only applies to woodcutting and mining
  • Bugfix: Removed duplicate message when taking items from Bulk Storage Bins and Crates
  • Bugfix: Fixed issue causing you to not be able to fight back when a hostile creature on deed targeted you first.
  • BugFix: Particle effect will no longer remain visible after picking up the Checkers Board.

I really approve of the imbue gathering nerf. It was way to good.

Excellent!

 

Are fixes for not being able to shoot bow or track while in 3rd person being worked on or they dont have to since you are changing to new models and animations and those will work with them? 😊

Perfect for the enviers and haters. Bitter for those having fairly used the feature. No thanks, really not, and contempt for the Schadenfreude of some. Just a pointless crappy change, even punishing users of gathering runes on lower skills.

Makes rifts even more pointless than they already were.

I like the rune changes for skills like mining and woodcutting, but really dislike that they now do nothing at all for harvesting.

Don't see the point for imbues with the given formula, barely does anything at high skill and is way too expensive at low skill. Effectively it increases the average ql of what you gather by increasing the ql of the low and mid ql stuff. That's mostly stuff which you'd throw away if you don't have the imbue, and you'll mostly still throw it away if you have the imbue. Not worth it. (Please tell me if I'm completely wrong on that count, I'd love to be proven wrong on this one)

is this really the big Q4 update?

I would not call this an UPdate. feels like a downgrade to me.

 

So there is no Q4 update

What is the skill required for crafting a board? I assume Fine Carp but at what skill?  I want to make one to see how they look 🙂

If I understood correctly, there will be rifts on all 4 NFI servers.

Change: Gathering Runes and Imbue rework

  • Gathering Runes add +10% to the base quality, but that is capped at your skill level.
  • Imbues now add a bonus of up to 25% of the difference between the resulting quality and 100 at 100 imbue power. This can exceed your gathering skill.
  • The rune bonus is applied before the imbue bonus.

 

Gather rune does not add a full 10% and imbue ql bonus does not work at all:

[16:08:24] It has a max quality of 81.

With the gather rune 10% only the may ql should be 89.1 and the pickaxe also has 98 imbue...

Mining skill is 90.9.

The pick is 94.68ql:

[16:10:43] A tool for mining. This is a very rare and interesting version of the item. It could be improved with a lump.
[16:10:43] Wind of Ages has been cast on it, so it will be quicker to use. [95]
[16:10:43] A bronze rune of Libila has been attached, so it will gather resources at a higher quality level (10%)
[16:10:43] Circle of Cunning has been cast on it, so it will increase skill gained with it when used. [86]
[16:10:43] It has been smeared with a potion of mining, so it improves Mining max QL [98]

Seems like even the servers reject your Christmas nerfs.

Unfortunately, the hamsters were imbued and are running at a much lower efficiency now.

To clarify:

These changes only apply to mining and woodcutting

All other activities have the same mechanics they always did

So I didn't just piss away my money getting my sickle runed?
