The Rites of Spring Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Mar 29 15:54 -0400 GMT


  • The killer bunny makes his annual return!
  • The Gem of the Harbinger now has 7 new stat-variants to choose from!
    • As such, the gem no longer drops as a One-Time-Drop and instead is a loot-choice on the Rites of Spring quest.
    • Killing the Harbinger of Spring mob (battlegroup-credit) still grants the quest automatically.
    • There will be no item exchange service for the Gem of the Harbinger or any of its variants, choose carefully!
  • The Traveling Merchants have made their way through the muddy roads and set up shop in their usual spots; but this time with some price changes and new wares!
  • Enjoy Spring with some RvR bonuses!
Read on for the full details!

The Rites of Spring, Traveling merchants, and RvR bonuses will continue through Monday, April 16th.
 

1.124D Live Hot Fix Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Mar 28 12:06 -0400 GMT
The following notes are now live. Thanks to all on your ongoing feedback and bug reports!

 

Class Changes

Items

  • The Arcane Weapon Shard 3 of 3 should be dropping normally once again.
  • The Cursed Dream Gauntlet’s The Dream Stone /use2 has had its effectiveness reduced from +33% mez dampen down to +20%.
  • The healing-effectiveness spells on the following items have been reduced:
    • Cloak of the Loyal Paladin’s /use2: reduced from +25% to +12% healing-effectiveness
    • Cloak of the Loyal Cleric’s /use2: value remains at 10% but it is no longer a buff to heals cast on its affected targets; it is now a normal healing-effectiveness buff instead.
      • This means it will no longer co-exist or stack with the Cloak of the Paladin’s /use2 ability, or any other healing-effectiveness buffs; the higher value effect will overwrite any lower values.
    • The Cursed Life Gauntlets’ /use2: reduced from +25% to +10% healing-effectiveness. Duration is increased from 5 to 10 minutes.
  • The Ghostly Medal of Valor /use Ghostly Regeneration has had its heal value reduced from 10%/tick to 7%/tick.
  • Illusion /uses and spells should now only last their intended duration and should no longer become “stuck” on the target for the duration of the first illusion’s effect.
    • This means if an illusion with a 10 minute duration is active, like Shades of Mist, and a 60s illusion is subsequently applied, like the Bat-form from the Halloween Helms, the Shades of Mist form will return when the Bat-form’s duration has run its course.
  • Minstrel’s Unyielding and Freezing Vagabond Vests’ Ravage ability now properly gives the Minstrel’s pet the damage boost instead of the Minstrel.

Assassins

Envenom specialization

  • Tranquilizing Miasma has had its duration reduced from 10s to 8s.
  • The weaponskill and stat debuff poison has been adjusted as follows:
    • The strength and dexterity stat debuff components of this poison have been removed entirely.
    • The constitution stat debuff component and values remain unchanged.
    • The weaponskill debuff component has been increased as follows to compensate:
      • Level 7 – Weakening Poison – weaponskill debuff component increased from 5% to 8%.
      • Level 17 – Inhibiting Poison – weaponskill debuff component increased from 8% to 11%.
      • Level 27 – Enervating Poison – weaponskill debuff component increased from 10% to 15%.
      • Level 37 – Unnerving Poison – weaponskill debuff component increased from 14% to 20%.
      • Level 47 – Touch of Death – weaponskill debuff component increased from 19% to 28%.
    • This change was made to consolidate effects by removing the extraneous strength and dexterity debuff effects.
      • The weaponskill debuff values were increased so that debuffed targets will deal about the same melee damage as they did prior to the removal of the strength and dexterity debuff components.

Cabalist

  • The Amber Simulacrum pet now runs at normal + sprint speed.

Enchanter

  • The Underhill Stalker pet now runs at normal + sprint speed.

Enchantments specialization

  • All levels of the single-target, 30s duration healing-effectiveness buffs have had their healing effectiveness values reduced by half.

    • The debuff values remain unchanged.
    • The strength and dexterity debuffs share a 15s timer.
    • The constitution debuff is on its own 15s timer.

Necromancer

  • The Umbral Aegis pet should once again land melee attacks on its targets.
  • The Plated Fiend pet now runs at normal + sprint speed.

Death Servant Baseline

  • A pet-target casted heal has been added as follows:
    • Level 13 – Animate Flesh – Heals pet for 41 hp – 3.0 cast speed – 8 power – 2000 range
    • Level 23 – Animate Blood – Heals pet for 88 hp – 3.0 cast speed – 17 power – 2000 range
    • Level 33 – Animate Muscle – Heals pet for 152 hp – 3.0 cast speed – 22 power – 2000 range
    • Level 43 – Animate Body – Heals pet for 244 hp – 3.0 cast speed – 28 power – 2000 range
    • If currently logged in, please zone or relog to see these new spells.

Shaman

Augmentation specialization

  • All levels of the single-target, 45s duration healing-effectiveness buffs have had their healing effectiveness values reduced by half.

Friday Grab Bag - 03/16/2018

Posted by Community | 2018 Mar 16 15:24 -0400 GMT
Time for another edition of our bi-weekly Grab Bag, on the weekend where everywhere seems to be celebrating the green!

Don't forget our Saint Patrick's Day event started earlier today. I expect to see lots of leprechauns speeding 'round the frontier over the weekend :)

As always, thanks for all your questions! If you have any game related questions for our DAoC Devs, please send them in through our Grab Bag submission form. Please note this is for game questions, feedback should be sent in through our feedback form.

Read on for this week's questions covering con loss, come back campaigns, siege towers, and more! :)


St. Patrick's Day Event

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Mar 16 12:13 -0400 GMT
Are you feeling lucky?

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day and running from now until Monday, March 19th, our third annual 'Leprechaun Treasure' quest is on!  

To get the quest, level 50s should pay the following poor souls a consoling visit:

Edmund in Cotswold's tavern
Bjorne in Mularn's beer hall
Silvadren in Mag Mell's pub


 
  • As part of the quest, players will be shapeshifted into a realm-specific "leprechaun" but have ALL of their stats debuffed by 75%.
  • But fear not, leprechauns may be weak but they are also nigh impossible to catch: shapeshifted players will also have an unbreakable CC-immunity and speed buff for the duration of the shapeshift.  
  • Oh, and we hear the real leprechauns love hiding their treasure in dangerous lands and ancient ruins. Enjoy some zany RvR through the weekend!
  • The ROG reward is a choice between a ring or a bracer similar to the Valentine's Day event with some slight differences. These ROGs will only allow up to 5 slots for stats but will also have 1 of 6 possible /uses.
 
      
 
For players of all level ranges, there are three pesky little tricksters who are hoping you're not too lucky! A 'charming' reward will be bestowed upon those who have the cunning to out-wit:

Killaghe in Albion
Daighu in Midgard
Iollarme in Hibernia

The "Luck of a Leprechaun" quest can be obtained from the following:

Sir Prescott in Cotswold
Hrolf in Mularn
Epona in Mag Mell

Once again, the event will run until Monday, March 19th.

A happy and safe St. Patrick's Day to one and all, and we'll see you in the Frontiers!
