1.124 Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Oct 06 17:08 -0400 GMT
The following changes are now live!
  • The summoned pets in the Dragon Curse Campaign Ch. 6 have been improved as follows:
    • Damage mobs do more damage
      • Alb: Selan, Guy
      • Mid: Garmr, Freki
      • Hib: Cystilla, Rhogart
    • Tank mobs hold aggro much better from their NPC allies (not the player)
      • Alb: Maximilian
      • Mid: Garmr
      • Hib: Riarona
    • Selan (Alb) & Freki (Mid) now have backup healing. Salle’s (Hib) healing value is prioritized over celerity now.
  • The Mythical Crowd Control stats on the following items have had their stat values reduced. The new values below allow these items to have essentially the same net impact on crowd control reduction that they had prior to 1.124.
    • Lesser Irrepressible Mythirian: 4 to 1% crowd control reduction
    • Average Irrepressible Mythirian: 7 to 2% crowd control reduction
    • Greater Irrepressible Mythirian: 10 to 3% crowd control reduction
    • Dragon Movement Mythirian: Remains 3% crowd control reduction
    • Freezing Conqueror Mythirian: 10 to 2% crowd control reduction
    • Otherworldly Stoic Gem: 15 to 3% crowd control reduction
    • Dark Dragon Scale: 5 to 3% crowd control reduction
    • Ring of the Cursed King: 5 to 1% crowd control reduction
    • Cape of the Pictish Hero: 5 to 2% crowd control reduction
  • The Ranger RR5, Nature's Madness, should now sever the connection of enemy controlled pets more consistently. This fixes an issue where sometimes the enemy pets would not immediately have their connection severed while inside the storm's effect.

Live Client Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Oct 05 12:50 -0400 GMT
This client update should address issues that certain players are seeing with character facings; especially in melee combat. We've also noted many of the other small fixes that have gone up since 1.124 has gone live.

Please note, players already online must log out and run their patcher to receive this update.
  • (Client) Fixed an issue causing certain players and monsters to get their character facings slightly offset from their expected direction.
    • Please note that a slight stutter may be seen with characters stopping suddenly once again, but it should still be much improved from prior to 1.124.
  • (Client) The underwater idle animation is once again the correct animation.
  • Fixed an issue where players could get the Solo Road quest again prior to their daily lockout timer.
  • Several issues with Hibernia's Curse Campaign Chapter 6 have been corrected:
    • The barriers should correctly despawn when progressing through the chapter.
    • The marauders will now correctly take damage from equipped soul weapons.
    • The avriel will no longer respawn when defeated.
  • Atlantean Glass purchased from the Currency Exchange NPC will keep it's value at 20,000 after zoning. It also now stacks with itself up to 60,000.
  • Players should no longer get teleported randomly when running near the forge located behind Albion's Milegate in Cathal Valley.
  • Soul-infused boots regen should once again co-exist with Omni-Regens.

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest separating out your normal game directory from your Pendragon game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching back to live.
      • To force the live client to fix these issues, you will need to delete the mft.myp in your game's directory and run the patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!

Ywain Server Hosting Issues

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Oct 02 21:01 -0400 GMT

9:15 PM EST: Ywain is now back online to all players.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by tonight's emergency server maintenance. It was related to a hardware issue that cropped up at the hosting center. To be safe, we'll be monitoring the situation throughout the rest of the night and through tomorrow.

As such, we'll be pushing back the scheduled Live server downtime for patch 1.124 until Wednesday, October 4th.

Thank you all for your understanding and patience as we work to ensure there are no longer any remaining server-hosting issues.
