These notes will be live when the servers return:

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.

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.
