1.123C Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Aug 31 13:03 -0400 GMT
Based on feedback from the 5v5 event, we're going to hold off on introducing the character movement changes from the 1.123C Pendragon notes until we can make some adjustments to them. Since those changes require server downtime, we're going to introduce the other fixes and changes from the 1.123C Pendragon notes in the form of a Hot Fix today and delay the character movement and +range% fix (which also requires server downtime) until the 1.124 version. We're aiming to release version 1.124 prior to Dark Age of Camelot's 16th anniversary.

Without further ado, the following notes are now live! 

World


  • Buggane’s Obelisk will now rotate once every 4 hours instead of once every 24 hours.
  • The portal ceremony to Ellan Vannin will now port once every 5 minutes instead of once every 10 minutes.
  • The Triumphant Wristguard reward (called "Band of the Dream Conqueror") from the Chapter 6 Dragon Curse campaign will now be tradable to other players.
  • The Chapter 6 Dragon Curse campaign solo instance’s mobs have had their difficulty reduced slightly.
  • The Chapter 5 Dragon Curse campaign Vulcan (Albion) and Darkspire Crystal (Midgard) bosses have had their difficulties reduced slightly. Hibernia's boss is already at the correct difficulty.

Class Changes

Enchanter
Enchantment specialization
  • The Enchantment of Mana's proc rate has been reduced from a 50% to a 40% chance to proc.
Hunter
Beastcraft specialization
  • The chance for the Hunter’s Avatar to land a rear stun has been removed entirely.
  • The chance for the Hunter’s Avatar to proc disease has been reduced as follows:
    • Level 40 avatar: 10% down to 7% chance.
    • Level 50 avatar: 15% down to 10% chance.

Bug Fixes and Client Updates


  • Players that are within 2000 units of the boss when it dies should consistently receive credit when completing Chapter 5 of the Dragon Curse campaign.
    • Please note that the previous step still requires characters to equip their Soul weapon prior to fighting the boss.
  • The Chapter 5 Dragon Curse encounters should no longer despawn when the encounter is failed.
  • The Chapter 6 Dragon Curse campaign's Dream mobs should no longer respawn while the instance is underway.
  • The plate armor Soul Infused Greaves should now equip to the right armor location.

A Grab Bag of Broadswords.

For something a little different, one of our players from the Postcount forums, Card, sent some questions to us wanting a spotlight behind the scenes at Broadsword, and the people behind the name :) So here's a special "Card Bag" for you, and our regular Grab Bag will return next time.

Our 5v5 event kicks off tomorrow at 1PM EST/6PM GMT/7PM CET! With 21 teams registered it's looking to be another 5v5 event jam packed with excitement! Tune in live on our official DAoC Twitch channel, and maybe even win some prizes :)

We would ask those participating to please arrive on time and be ready to go (make your guilds beforehand!) around the porter's area in Camelot at 1PM EST (6PM GMT/7PM CET).

In addition to the awesome fights we have to look forward to, we will also be giving away some spot prizes during the event! Shileah will be running contests for patterns and 1 month DAoC Timecodes for those joining the fun in Twitch chat, and our very chatty commentators will be awarding patterns to players for the following categories:
 

  • Best Dressed through the use of patterns (free Mithril is available on all characters on Pendragon)
  • Tournament MVP
  • MVP outside of the top 3 teams (finalists, semi-finalists, and 3rd placed teams)
  • Groups Stage MVP (per group category, not team)
  • Most Memorable Play


Please note: Pendragon is down tomorrow for a patch (details here), but will be set as FFA ruleset when it returns, please wait until Pendragon is back online to copy over any toons from live. So get ready to make your guilds, copy your toons, and work your fashion magic for Saturday! #5v5hype

Full tournament details can be found here. The tournament will be streamed in full on our official Twitch channel, and groups randomised Friday evening. If you have a team but it does not appear on the fixture list, please contact Beibhinn asap via Discord or Postcount.

Excited for what Saturday brings!! See you there :)


Test Sever Downtime - Pendragon Patch 1.123C

Posted by John Thornhill | 2017 Aug 23 12:20 -0400 GMT
Pendragon is open for testing! Its server ruleset has been changed to FFA/PVP. 

The Pendragon test server will be coming down tomorrow, August 24th, at 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT to deliver patch 1.123C to Pendragon!

Click the button below for the full notes!

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!
