Patch 3.1.0

Hello everyone,

It has a been a while since the last big patch. As promised, this one is mainly for crafters. I did however have to address some of the things that were bothering players the most and as such I will list them first. Enjoy!

Welcome to macro Wednesdays!
Captcha system will now be disabled on Wednesdays and all players will be allowed to harvest resources in AFK state. (Updated the rules page accordingly)

Added a new Bonus system.
The system will allow players to active experience and skill gain bonus equivalent to the power hour once per day and at will. The bonus can be activated once per day and not 24 hours. This means that players can chain them.

The bonus is per character. You could log in to each one of your character and activate it.
The bonus duration will increase by 30 seconds with every consecutive day logged in!
It will however reset to 30 minutes if you do not.

World Changes:
Barding difficulty check has been reduced. It is now approximately 20% harder compared to vanilla.
Increased SuperBoss type loot a little bit.
Bonding pets has been halved from 30 days to 15 days!
Pet bonding abandon time has been increased from 1 day to 2 days.
Summoned creatures should now get dispelled 50% times less!
Gave all players a flat 5hp bonus.
Death Penalty exp has been halved. Used to be 20% now its 10%!
The Dryad bow now has an elven composite base.
Added Plum fruit.
Added new weapon attributes: Bane, Bone Breaker, Swarm, Sparks and Assassin Honed
Added new artifacts: Glenda, The Deceiver, Bow of the infinite swarm, The scholars Halo.
Doom bosses now drop the new artifacts and recipes.
Reworked Dark Father’s AI
Dark Father will no longer spawn scrolls.
Greater Dragon now drops double the amount of Gems
Added correct artifact to fishing system.

Crafters:
Implemented all features of the new bulk order system.
Players will now be able to view all the reward tables, store reward points and much more:
• NPCs will cache up to 3 bulk order deeds for players
• The system will “cache” up to 18 hours worth of BOD give outs
• Players may claim all 3 deeds in quick succession
• Turning in a BOD adds a new deed to the cache
• Example: Log in after 18 hours and receive 3 deeds
• Example: Receive 3 deeds, then turn in 3 filled deeds, and immediately receive 3 new deeds

Bulk orders are obtained from the following NPC’s:
• Alchemy – NPC Alchemists
• Blacksmith – NPC Armorers, Blacksmiths, Iron Workers and Weaponsmiths.
• Bowcraft – NPC Bowyer
• Carpentry – NPC Carpenter
• Cooking – NPC Baker, Cook
• Inscription – NPC Scribe
• Tailor – NPC Tailors and Weavers.
• Tinker – NPC Tinker
Yes, we now have bulk orders for Alchemy, Tinkering, Cooking, Bowcrafting, Carpentry and Inscription.

Reward points can now be banked!
• Points are banked at a rate of 2% of the full value for small bods, 20% for large bods
• Banked points do not stack with Unbanked turn in points
• Example: Character has 20 banked points and turns in, without banking, a BOD worth 610 points. Only the 610 points will be available to spend, not 630
• Points can be spent on any reward up to the value of the bod being turned in, excess points are lost
• Example: Character turns in, without banking, a BOD worth 610 points and claims a reward valued at 575 points, the remaining 35 points will be lost
• Banked points can be redeemed by selecting the ‘claim rewards’ option from the NPCs context menu
• It is possible to close the reward menu without choosing a reward, however you will not be able to turn in another order until the reward has been claimed using the ‘claim rewards’ option on the NPCs context menu

Added 4 new craftable jewelries. For the first time, we have magical earrings:
• Blazing Flash
up to 5 properties.
1 guaranteed from Enhance potions, weapon damage, bonus str, weapon speed.
• Fire Water
up to 5 properties
1 guaranteed from lower mana cost, cast speed, cast speed recovery, spell damage, lrc
• Flash Freeze
up to 5 properties
1 guaranteed from Spell damage, poison resistance, cast recovery, cast speed, lrc

1 guaranteed from regen hits, fire res, cold res, regen mana.

Bug fixes:
Fixed issue with honesty items spawning.

Christmas Patch 3.0.1

The holidays are upon us! Santa and his helpers went around the world to send out gifts to everyone. Unfortunately, after he made a stop in New Haven, a bunch of Deer Trappers stole all the food for his reindeer! Santa went ahead to deliver the gifts by foot. His trusted helper Ralph set up shop to take care of the deer until he comes back. See if you can help him!

The deer trappers can be found near New Haven farms.

Changes:
Players now start with 50 extra skill cap.
Each NPCGuild master will tell you to simply join. 500 gold is no longer needed.
Modified interaction between all Guildmasters and the player to make it a bit more intuitive.
Added Luna as available by default for public moongate as getting far enough into the NPC Guild quest line for either necro or chivalry took too much time making the map unavailable. Umbra will still have to be unlocked.

1. The Fire mages. Faithful servants of Innos. Talk to Milten in New Haven to start your journey with them including 13 quests, the first of which will teach you everything you need to know about being a mage on Survival UO. Other notable Mages added are: Pyrokar, Pedro, Serpentes, Ulthar and Vatras.
2. The Thieves guild. They will take any job that pays well. Talk to Nagur in New Haven if money is your goal in life. There are 13 thief quests in total. Even though all NPC Guilds follow the same story line, the thieves will be focused mostly on stealing, lockpicking, begging. Many quests will have multiple ways to complete them by using various skills. Other notable thieves are: Ramirez and Cassia

Mini Bosses Changes:
• All mini bosses respawn rate was lowered to 30-45 minutes.
• Death Stalker scorpion armors now give +3 dex instead of +2 and rate was increased from 20% to 40%. Weapons give 15SSI instead of 10. Exp reward was doubled.

• Lothar now has much higher respawn rate.

Moonstones:
The concept of moonstones was added back in patch 2.0, but it had very limited functionality. Bartok’s quest to kill Lekras Bonecal would give the Umbra moonstone which unlocked Umbra when using the public moongate.

The system was enhanced to now include moonstones for Luna, Umbra and Tokuno.
Aelorn Instructors Aelorn(Chivalry), Hamato(Bushido), Mulcivikh(Necromancery) and Ryuichi(Ninjitsu) now offer moonstone as reward for reaching skill to 50.
Players that currently have the skill higher than 50 will automatically receive the moonstone after this patch.

New Items:

• Magery Spells now require 10 * Spell Circle amount of INT to be cast.
• Militia NPC Guild was modified to now offer the introduction to Bushido, Ninjitsu and Chivalry NPC that will then offer the skills.
• Joining an NPC Guild no longer requires the initial 500 gold. Simply saying NPC Name and join will be sufficient.

Skill Changes:
Bushio, Ninjitsu, Magery, Chivalry and Necromancery are now skills that can be obtained from specific NPCs after being introduced by your NPC Guild.
• Bushido: Militia Guild after killing the orc captains. Thieves guild after finishing the Measuring Contest quest.
• Ninjitsu: Militia Guild after killing the orc captains. Thieves guild after finishing the Measuring Contest quest.

Monster’s HP will now give more points towards experience. It will make a very small difference for LOW HP monsters, but should give a boost to higher HP mobs.

Added Christmas Decorations.

New Monsters:
40 New Mini bosses all around Felucca and Trammel with unique loot items and boosted EXP. A new webpage will be created with information on all new and old mini bosses. As all of their items do not count as artifacts and as such armors and weapons can be enhanced.

Fixed major bug that allowed multiple crop harvesting at the same time.

Patch 2.1.0

In the last year, we have been trying to streamline the character progression. This was done by the following:
1. Adding a lot of new normal quests.
2. Main story line quest.
3. Daily repeatable quests.
4. Increasing monster loot tables so that magic items are available to lower level characters.

Currently, other issues came up such as increased difficulty to level up after lvl 50, not enough players around to party with and lack of base gear to help with increased difficulty in monsters that people want to fight after a specific level.

We are following the same pattern be changing the following:
1. An enraged version of monsters will have a chance of spawning whenever you kill most mobs. They are stronger in a few ways, but mostly just have more HP. This means that killing them should simply take longer, but the fight will not be much harder. These monsters will have a small chance to drop artifacts and will have a significant experience boost. This should help players get stronger before being able to kill the vanilla bosses.

3. As magical monsters have been a huge part of the problem why people have a hard time progressing, all armor has now been given a default amount of elemental resistance. Even the weakest of armor such as leather gloves will give an extra 4 total resistance. Considering there are 7 armor spots (including the shield), even the weakest of armor sets will provide an additional 28 resistances, while the strongest up to 92!

4. Reduced experience required to level up after level 50. All characters will simply have their new level applied when they log in. This should result in free 2-4 level ups.

5. Due the relatively low population on the server, we dont always have a large amount of players in the same level group. Increasing the 0 penalty level gap should allow for more people to get together. Party gap is being increased from 10 levels of no penalty to 15.
Example: A level 35 player in party with a lvl 55 player will now get 50% of the experience. Used to be 0%.
A level 50 Player in party with a lvl 65 player will now get 100% of the experience. Used to be 50%.
Please do remember that the experience is calculated based on who did most damage. So if the lower level character did most of the damage he will get 100% of the exp all the time, while the higher level player that will get the reduced amount.

6. Parrying skill applies a very large penalty if the character has less than 80 dex. As players here struggle to get it so high in the early levels without having to sacrifice too much strength, the DEX penalty for parrying was reduced to 60.

7. Many crafters starting on this server don’t fully understand the system and how to progress, specificaly because they can only start gaining experience by using the resources they gathered. In order to give them a helping hand, resource gathering skills such as Lumberjacking and mining will now randomly give between 0 and 2 experience per use.

8. Power Scrolls are dream items as they should be. However, it has been too long since a group of people were able to defeat the easiest of champion spawns. Due to this, Barracoon has had his life reduced by 6000hp and damage reduced from 29-38 to 22-32. Happy hunting!

Quality of Life changes:
After long deliberation, CAPTCHA gumps were removed from all crafting tools!

Bug Fix:
Power hour was running for longer than 1 hour.



Patch 2.0.7

Power Hour added. From now on, every day at 10PM GMT, players will receive double experience.
A Hiryu spawn was added somewhere in Felucca.
Recall Rune is now craftable using inscription.
Rod the furious was slightly adjusted.
Tinkering is now much easier to gain.


Patch 2.0.6

Fixed bug where lower stat requirement on weapons was higher than intended.

New characters will now spawn in New Haven again. The book area was too restrictive for people that didnt speak english.
Vregruk now has 30% chance of spawning lizards instead of 40%.


Patch 2.0.5

Bug Fixing
Correct Dexterity requirement will now be displayed on weapons if they have lower stat magic property.
Fixed Lower Requirement to work for dex when trying to equip.
Hunger and Thirst were not lowering HP when at 0.
Fixed Vial of pure water quest.

New Features:
Hunger and thirst decay now has 3 levels, each with it’s own message.

Crafting:
Fine Necklace can now be crafted for 4 ingots. Minimum skill 65.
Water Trough East Deed and South deed now needs 85 carpentry instead of 95.



Update 2.0.4

Added Trash bag. Each player gets one free when starting a new character. You can also buy it for 10gold from a tailor.
Vorpal Bunny adjusted to have higher gold as it had before the 2.0 patch.
Orc Helms are now repairable by tailors.

Mining bonus in Felucca was removed as there are no PKs around at all.

Update 1.34

Starting Location:

We have added a new starting location for all new players. This location will have special books that outline all the basics and more for playing here on Survival. These starter guides will help out any new players know the basics of what to expect.

Britain Decoration:

Added a lot of decoration to Britain, go check it out. HUGE thanks to Whisper / Eida.

System changes:

The Profession system has been completely revised. A new GUMP was introduced so that people would have a lot more information about the professions and their bonuses in game. Profession points used to be awarded at level 30, 60, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170, 180, 190, 200. 13 in total.Now, they are awarded at level 10, 30, 50, 70, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170, 180, 190, 200. 16 in total. As you can see, all the changes were done to the lower levels. This is to ensure that people get more exposure to this system early on and get extra use out of it. This is also the first time when all the bonuses are fully published. They will be changed and rebalanced over time. To access the new GUMP, you can use the commands [professions, [profession or [prof. Hopefully you can remember 1 of them. The default Level GUMP was changed as well. You can no longer allocate profession points there. 2 new items were added; Mana and Stamina. You will be able to allocate points into them just like in STR, DEX, INT, and Hits. The text was also re-factored a little bit. A crucial impact to the game will be the fact that people will be able to add mana without having to have level 1 Mage profession. Please note that heavy restrictions based on MAGE profession will be set to most spells. Translation: A non-mage Profession will not be able to do much with the mana so some investments might be necessary, even if just 1 point. What and how exactly, will be decided over the coming weeks and of course balanced/ re-worked over time.

Due to the above changes, all profession points are reset to 0 and Int back to 1 so you can re-speck as you see fit.

A brand new Voting System has been put in as well. You can vote by using the [vote command, by double clicking on one of the many voting stones around cities, or by simply visiting www.survivaluo.com/vote.
As a token of our gratitude, there is a 2000 Exp reward for voting.
