Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 May 03 10:45 -0400 GMT

We'll be extending the Rites of Spring event and realm point bonuses until May 14th as a thank you for your patience and understanding with the recent downtimes.

And with that, the following notes are now live!

  • Character spell effects should no longer disappear randomly after playing for a certain time.
    • Please note that players currently in-game will need to exit and run their patcher to get this fix.
  • Hibernia's Dragon Curse Campaign Chapter 9.1 encounter has been adjusted as follows:
    • The flame mechanic has been removed.
    • Players must now defeat Hurgundhu prior to Lady Kharis.
  • Hitpoint and Armor Factor /use items have been changed to be consistent across the board; this affects the following two items specifically:
    • Band of the Dream Conqueror's Triumphant Aura and Traldor's Oracle's Traldor's Aura abilities now co-exist but do not stack with other item-based HP/AF buffs.
      • With this change, ALL item-based HP/AF buffs stack with the class-based HP/AF buffs now.
      • This also changes the abilities on these items to no longer drop when unequipped.
  • Players attempting to enter the throne rooms in each capital city will no longer see a dialogue window telling them they must have the Darkness Rising expansion to enter.
  • The Shades of Mist artifact should no longer occassionally give players a "too far away" message when /used.
  • Weapon drops in Stonehenge Barrows, Coruscating Mine, and Spindelhalla have been given another pass.
    • All weapons have had their stats, weapon speeds, damages, and +skills normalized and generally increased.
    • The target bonus level for these weapons is now around level 35, instead of levels 20-25.
    • Weapons with %damage and %range bonuses are now applied vs all targets.
    • More weapon options have been added to cover all classes.
  • Several issues in the Stonehenge Barrows dungeon have been fixed:
    • All associated quests now have the proper "[Barrows]" prefix.
    • High Priestess Ywera's remains now only drop from High Priestess Ywera.
    • Albino Grugner now has a chance to drop accessories and weapons like the other named bosses in the dungeon.
    • Additional skeletal high priestess monsters now spawn.

1.125D Pendragon Patch Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Apr 11 16:54 -0400 GMT
Patch 1.125D is now up on the Pendragon test server!

As previously stated, 1.125D is all about bug fixes! Thank you to everyone who has been submitting bugs and keeping tabs on our official bug tracker page!

Click the image below to check out the latest patch notes! 

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest duplicating your game directory and using the duplicate copy as a Pendragon-only game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • ​This means duplicating the entire "Labyrinth" folder (usually found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Labyrinth) to another location and using that copied folder exclusively for Pendragon testing.
    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching from Pendragon 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 then run the camelot.exe patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!
