Hello everyone, there recent events has put the whole world in a state of emergency placing lots of stress on its citizens. Many countries placed full lock down, while others simply sent their staff home.
This means that many will have lots of spare time and as such, for the foreseeable future, we will have 2 x Experience!
Also, the virus seems to have infected our world as well: The creatures in Felucca, Destard, Ice and Covetous completely overran the place. There seem to be a lot more of them!
I am very pleased with this patch. I hope you will like it too!
Item type dropped will now be based on the experience the monster will give.
This will ensure that as you progressively kill stronger monsters, you will get equipment that will require more stats and it will also mean that new players don’t have to scratch their head looking at heater shields that require 200str :).
Paragon, Enraged, ML (Named monsters) artifact drop chance has been altered to use the monsters experience instead of fame. Fame was never a reliable number to begin with. Some really strong named monsters had low fame and some weak monsters had high fame. This lead to very silly artifact drop %.
Gave Abscess fame and karma (it had none)

Hello everyone! It has been a while since release 3 but we are starting to make some good progress. While release 2 and 3 were focused on content, this one will be focused mostly on gameplay changes. We have been tinkering with many ideas since we started this server but it took a long time to polish those ideas and turn them into reality. Please find bellow a teaser of what is currently implemented and being tested. As the number of changes are overwhelming, we need all the help we can get to test them.
The test server will be live next Saturday, February 15.
Weapons will now attack 2 times faster.
Weapons attack speed is no longer limited by increments of 0.25.

Weapon swing speed is now automatically calculated based on your stats and swing speed increase bonuses so you don’t have to calculate or guess if the weapon is equiped.

Identifying an item will reveal the magic properties and will remove the hue.
Items will also get a name based on their appearance (Evil, Good, Oriental).
Items can be identified in the following way:
Jewls, Hats, Instruments, Leather armor, Bows/ xBows, Scrolls: Item Identification skill or an NPC with the same profession
Everything else: Arms Lore or a Blacksmith
All of the above will be written on the item so you don’t have to remember.
Unidentified items, cannot be used!
If an unidentified item was unsuccessfully identified by a person 5 times, then only an NPC can help.
If an unidentified scroll was unsuccessfully identified, it might just backfire on you! Please be careful.

• Turning in a BOD adds a new deed to the cache
• Example: Log in after 18 hours and receive 3 deeds

• Banked points do not stack with Unbanked turn in points

• 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

Lord Rod The Furious bonus loot.
New Felucca Bonus: All monsters will spawn 2 times faster.
From now on, players that die from a monster will not recieve any death penalty for the first 3 deaths. This should motivate players to explore new challenges. 3 deaths should be sufficient to gather enough data about a monster type.

Added Personal Bless deed. Now all characters will have a deed that will allow them to bless any item of their choosing. The scroll is unlimited, but you can only bless 1 item at a time.

Fix on set items.
Fixed major bug that allowed multiple crop harvesting at the same time.
Fixed bug where honesty items did not decay.
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!
