Item Search Update

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Sep 11 12:23 -0400 GMT
Thank you to all for the great feedback we've received on the official Item Search tool. The following updates should address most of the requests we've received, with any further updates/fixes to come after the Template Builder tool is released.

Item Search


  • Added 900+ items to the item database.
    • Please note that the item database is currently only for equipment and not for consumable or quest items, though they may be added at a later time.
  • Sub-menus now appear when selecting Weapon, Armor, or Shield categories.
    • Only one of the following weapon types may be filtered at a time:
      • Any
      • One Hand (includes Left/Off Hand)
      • Two Hand
      • Left/Off Hand
      • Ranged
    • Multiple armor types may be filtered at once:
      • Cloth
      • Leather
      • Studded (includes Reinforced)
      • Chain (includes Scale)
      • Plate
    • Multiple shield sizes may be filtered at once:
      • Small
      • Medium
      • Large
  • Users can now also filter weapons by their skill type.
    • To filter by a weapon skill, the weapon category must be selected and applied first, then a separate "Weapon Skill" dropdown will appear underneath the "Category" dropdown and above the "Realm" dropdown.
    • Multiple weapon skills may be filtered at once.
  • Users can now filter and search for item-based abilities.
    • Use the Advanced Filter form to select for Item Bonuses or Item Abilities then choose the relevant Bonus or Ability you wish to filter.
  • Improved the display of item abilities on item-view pages with short ability tags, descriptions, level, and expandable detailed delves.
    • Re-exported ability delves to update to their current values.
  • Users can now filter items by Bonus Level.
  • Removed duplicate magic resistance choices in their filter list.
  • Added a "clear filters" button that will clear all filters with a single click!
    • Clearing filters will NOT reset active search results until the "Apply Filters" button is used.

We have one quick Hot Fix note related to the Midsummer Event before we get to the questions:

  • The [Midsummer] Spirit of War quest now grants credit as follows:
    • Character must have the Spirit of War's Mark buff active OR
    • Character must be of the realm that currently owns the keep under attack by the Dark Dragon
      • This means that if the Dark Dragon is currently spawned at Dun Crimthainn, the realm that owns Dun Crimthainn will be able to get credit for the quest in any location of the Frontier, even if they do not have the Spirit of War's Mark buff active.
      • This method of credit will last as long as the Spirit of War is still at the keep. 
      • If the keep is neutral, no realms can get quest credit unless they have the Spirit of War's Mark buff active.

Official Item Search Tool

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Jul 30 17:22 -0400 GMT
We're pleased to announce the release of our Item Search tool! 
 
This is the first in a long line of tools we'll be releasing in the coming months that use our new website's layout. As each new tool is released we'll be continuing to flesh out the new site's layout and menu. Once the majority of those tools and resources have been released, we'll be converting over the main site to this new layout so we're excited to hear your initial feedback!

The Item Search tool is nearly complete as is but we'll be adding even more bells and whistles to it, like ensuring that all of the item abilities show properly and enabling searches for specific item abilities, as soon as they are ready. In the meantime, please let us know what you think and have fun digging up those items!

Yay Friday! And another Friday means another Grab Bag!

In a previous Grab Bag on June 7th, we answered a question on realm timers with our plan for implementing a realm switch timer, 30 minutes for subbed accounts, and approx. 4  hours for Endless Conquest accounts (triggered only if you earn RP/player kill). Following on from that, we've created a realm timer poll to garner feedback on the change, so please vote and let us know your thoughts! :)
