- Optimized speed of zoning between two different worlds (Shrouded Isles to Homeland, etc).

- When attempting to repair a door without enough wood, you will now receive a message informing you of the number of wood units you need and the number of wood units you currently have.

- Speed of the Realm, the spell cast by each realm's hastener NPCs, has had its duration increased to 4 minutes. This should allow players to make it to the first keep in their frontiers before the spell expires.

- Other speed spells or songs will no longer overwrite Speed of the Realm.

- Self targeted "no recast" spells, such as self bladeturns, should now overwrite group pulsing bladeturns even during the 2.5 second no recast period.

- Endurance drain spells now report, "Your target's stamina wavers!" to the caster/proc beneficiary.

- Non list casters who have a spell list (usually by choosing a master level track) should now once again have their spell timers updated correctly.

- The stun component on the Albion thrust style, Dragonfang, has been reduced to 5 seconds.

- Dual wield type styles which have a self targeted spell effect should now fire even in the case that the second attack in the dual wield strike fails for any reason (target dead, out of range, etc).

- Legendary weapons made before 1.68 will now have reduced melee, spell, and archery damage bonuses. This change has been made to bring these items in line with the new guidelines established for Trials of Atlantis objects in Version 1.68. For more information, please visit http://www.camelotherald.com/more/1329.shtml.

- The damage over time "proc" on the Fool's Bow artifact will now fire correctly.

- The Restoration ability will now only convert healing to endurance based on the actual amount healed. A full health character who receives a heal will no longer gain endurance with this ability.

- The Jerkin of Withering now reports endurance loss properly to the target.

- Pets are treated as their owner for the purposes of the /nohelp command.

- With no quiver slot selected, a player's highest ammo slot in their inventory will always be chosen.

- When riding on horses, your arrow keys will no longer move the camera around (unless you are in mouselook mode or have mouselook toggle pressed down). Arrow keys will move the camera by default only when riding on a boat.

- Fixed an issue where spamming a key bound to a quickbar macro could make the macro (such as /qbar) fire incorrectly.

- (ToA Only) When running in windowed mode, the resolutions 800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, and 1280x1024 will always be available to select, even if your video card does not report them as available resolutions.

- (PvP Only) Necromancers on PvP servers can now attack one another when one or both necromancers are in shade form.

- (PvE & PvP Servers) Using something other than a left axe in your off-hand as a shadowblade or berserker will no longer allow you to dual wield.

- (PvP Servers) Players will now correctly receive realm points when killing a player who is riding a boat.

- Boats can no longer be dropped in dungeons.


New Commands and Command Changes

- We have added the /gc logins command. This command will toggle a flag on your character which will send a text message informing you whenever a member of your guild (who isn't anonymous) logs on or off.

- The /who command has been altered to show a [CG] and a [BG] next to players' names who are the leaders of a public chat group and battlegroup respectively.

- The /who command now allows multiple different search filters at once. For example, typing /who 40 50 Wizard Emain Dragonhearts would list all of the level 40 through 50 Wizards currently in Emain Macha with a guild that matches the "Dragonhearts" filter.

- Any member of a public chat or battle group can now invite other players to join.

- A member count has been added to the /bg status command.

- You can now save your default camera position to your own setting. Place your camera where you want it to be, and type "/setcamera". To erase your custom settings, use "/resetcamera". Once you set a new camera position with /setcamera, you can move your camera back to that position by pressing the 'Reset Camera' key. This setting is saved on a per-character basis.

- We have added slash commands for "/bonuses" and "/journal" - these commands do the same thing as if you had clicked on the respective buttons on the Command Window.

- Added a new slash command: "/quiver dump" - it will take any arrows in your quiver and drop them on the ground.


Interface Changes

- (ToA Only) The group and minigroup windows will now display endurance for each group member.

- (ToA Only) A new group buffs window has been added to let you see all of your groupmates' buffs. The new window can be opened with the button on your large group status window.

- Attempting to trade a no-trade item will automatically set the repair flag for the recipient of the trade. If the target can't repair the item or removes the repair status, any no-trade item will be removed from the trade.

- Quality and Condition have been added to shield chat delves.

- Speed has been added to weapon and shield full delves.

- Power percent bonuses now display in the BONUSES window.

- Right clicking on a Combat Style icon will now display the name of the Previous Style requirement if there is one (before, it would simply show that there was a previous style required).

- You will now get an icon at the top of your screen if you are being protected, guarded, and/or intercepted. Right clicking on this icon will display who is doing the action to you.

- (ToA Only) A "Quiver" button has been added to the Combat Style page to allow you to bring up your quiver (instead of typing /quiver).

- The text of a macro will no longer be added to the list of previously entered commands (accessed by pressing "Shift-Up").

- Relic capture messages now display once to everyone in every zone.

- Keep capture messages now display once and only once to everyone in every zone.



CLASS CHANGES AND FIXES


General Changes

- We’ve added pet cure mesmerize spells for Necromancers, Bonedancers, and Animists. Necromancers will receive Dead Awakening in their baseline Painworking line. Bonedancers will receive Free Spirits in their baseline Bone Army line. Animists will receive Purifying Rain in their baseline Verdant Path line.


Archer Changes

- We have given archers a new ability called Sureshot that is available at 45 bow specialization for Hunters, Rangers, and Scouts. When Sureshot is toggled on, the archer will brace herself against attacks from range, giving her a 100% chance of not being interrupted by any ranged attack, including arrows and spells. Because the bow is being fired from a less natural position, the damage from each arrow is halved. Sureshot cannot be used with Rapid Fire, Critical Shot, Longshot, or Volley. Penetrating Arrow benefits will count towards arrowed fire using Sureshot.

- Increased the buff spells for both Hunters and Rangers to bring them more inline with those available from buffing classes. Hunter’s Frenzied Spirit and Heart of the Lynx lines have been adjusted upwards, as has Ranger’s Sharpened Senses line.


Healing and Buffing Class Changes

- Spread heal spells for the Healer, Druid, and Cleric will no longer overwrite each other in the character's spell list as the character progresses in specialization. As new spread heals are obtained through specialization, the old spread heal spells will remain on the healer's list. This will allow healing specced clerical classes the option of casting a lower level version of spread heal in situations where the power cost of the higher level spread heal might be prohibitive.

- New buff spells have been added for the three primary buff classes in the game (cleric, shaman, and druid). These spells are point blank area of effect buffs that affect up to 40 targets within a radius of 1000 units, and which are about 50% as effective as their concentration counterparts on the same lists and have a 10 minute duration. These new buff spells are intended to help more characters have access to buffs in RvR and on PvE raids.

Cleric - Enhancements Spec Line
34 Archangels Allotment (Strength/Constitution)
45 Archangels Apportioning (Strength/Constitution)
39 Benefit of the Archangel (Dexterity/Quickness)

48 Typhoon's Dance (Dexterity/Quickness)
30 Nature's Enlightenment (Acuity)
41 Nature's Sapience (Acuity)


- We have added buff shearing spell lines to the Shaman, Druid, and Cleric buffing lines. These spells are designed to be used offensively against enemy realm targets to remove one of their buffs. Characters who have a buff enhancement ripped off them via these spells will also take some damage due to the buff shearing effect (except in the case of Cleric and Shaman Constitution shearing, which will result in a natural drop in hit points). Characters who do not have a buff removed will not be damaged. Any buff that a player has cast on himself (whether concentration or timed) will not be affected by buff shearing. The Shaman spells have a bonus to casting speed, the Cleric spells have a bonus to range, and the Druid spells have a bonus to damage.

Cleric - Enhancements Spec Line (Single Target)
31 Piety Sequester (Acuity)
32 Adroitness Commandeer (Dexterity)
33 Embodiement Annex (Constitution)

32 Intelligence Rupture (Acuity)
34 Fleetness Disjoin (Dexterity)
35 Willpower Dissolve (Constitution)
36 Power Cross (Strength)
37 Might Sunder (Str/Con)

44 Fleetness Segment (Dexterity)
45 Willpower Dock (Constitution)
46 Power Unbind (Strength)
47 Might Rend (Str/Con)
49 Nimbleness Shear (Dex/Quick)


- Focus Shell spells have been added to the buffing lines of Druids, Shaman, and Clerics. These spells, which can be cast on others as well as oneself, absorb a significant amount of damage from all sources. The caster of the spell will have power drained as the focus shell is held in place, and the shell will drop if the caster moves or takes any other action. The recipient of the focus shell will not be able to take any action or use any ability, including attacking or healing, while the focus shell is up without causing the shell to fail. The recipient of the focus shell (if other than the caster) will be able to move without the shell breaking, provided they remain within a 2000 unit range of the focus shell caster and maintains line of sight. The shell will only protect against realm enemies.

Shaman - Augmentation Spec Line
41 Spirit Shell (Absorbs 70%)

Cleric - Enhancement Spec Line
46 Hand of God (Absorbs 85%)

Druid - Nurture Spec Line
47 Nature's Cocoon (Absorbs 90%)


Animist

- Animists now have a spell that will allow them to release multiple pets at a time. This spell, called "Release Clump", is available to animists at level 4 in the Creeping Path base line.

- The maximum number of turrets that an Animist can have spawned at any one time has been reduced to 15. Please note that bombers will not count towards this total. We are making this change because of the severe problems to game balance, frame rate, and server stability caused by the combination of Animist turrets and power increasing items found in Trials of Atlantis.

- Animist turrets will no longer attempt to snap to the floor when summoned underwater in dungeons.

- Animist bomber pets now check for the Phase Shift master level ability.


Friar

- The following Friar spells now have the appropriate expire messages attached to them: Shield of Faith, Shield of Piety, Shield of Devotion, Shield of Grace, Shield of Justice, Shield of Zeal, Shield of Holiness, Shield of the Sanctified, Blessing of Absorption, Blessing of Dissipation, Saint's Energy, Saint's Stamina, Saint's Persistence, and Saint's Tenacity.


Hunter

- Hunters may now attempt to find hidden enemies who have just killed one of their Realmmates via a new ability called "Call of the Hounds". To activate this new ability, the body of your Realmmate must first be selected. Then, six hounds are "called" that will sniff their way to any nearby enemies (stealthed or not). The hounds move at a very slow speed, but should they somehow catch up to a stealther, they will not attack but will bark incessantly instead. If there are no nearby enemies when this ability is used, no hounds will be summoned.

Hunter - Beastcraft Spec Line
30 Call of the Hounds


Infiltrator

- Infiltrators have been granted a single line respec as a result of the changes made to the Dragonfang thrust style this version.


Nightshade

- The damage of the Nightshade's line of shouts, Dart of Night through Lance of Night, has been increased.


Spiritmaster

- Spiritmasters can now summon Frostalf and Valkyn pets.


Warden

- Warden pulsing blade turn spells will no longer overwrite each other in the character's spell list as the Warden progresses in specialization. As new pulsing blade turn spells are obtained through specialization, the old pulsing blade turn spells will remain on the Warden's list. This will allow nurture specced Wardens the option to elect to run 8 or 10 second pulsing blade turn to save power.



MASTER LEVEL ABILITY CHANGES

- (SI and ToA Only) Master level ability runes and wards now have new art to replace the old ground target widget used for these abilities. The art is also color coded with the realm color of the person who cast it.

- The icons for combat styles in the Battlemaster master level line should now display correctly.

- The Warlord master ability, Warguard, is now a point blank area effect with a 750 radius and 35 second duration. This ability is also now on a 10 minute timer.

- Fixed a bug with the Battlewarder master ability. Convokers should now be able to cast the Battlewarder to their area of choice regardless of whether or not they have line of sight (For example, a caster in the courtyard during a keep defense will now be able to summon a battlewarder on the outside of the keep door to deter attackers). The battlewarder has also had its level and rate of attack increased.

- The Master Level ability, Agony Transmission, now reports any damage done to the caster. It also now has far less variance and (as stated in the ability's delve) also does a significant amount of damage to the caster when cast.

- The master ability, Summon Warcrystal, should no longer share the same re-use timer as the Spiritmaster's line of specialization debuffs.

- Essence Shatter will no longer strip pulsing buffs (this includes buffs received from fonts).

- If a concentration buff is stripped by Essence Shatter, the caster should have his/her concentration pool restored.

- If a focus shell is stripped by Essence Shatter, the caster should no longer continue to be power drained.

- If Essence Shatter successfully strips a buff, the name of the buff stripped is reported to the caster.

- Wood summoned by Convokers will now disappear when players log out.

- Necromancers no longer lose shade form when they lose control of Master Level ability pets.

- Alchemy - Potions, poisons, and tinctures now indicate their respective levels in recipe delves.

- Tailoring (Midgard) - Frisia will now let the appropriate classes become tailors. In fixing the problem with Frisia, it was discovered a bug that was stopping Hunters from becoming Tailors. We have fixed the problem now. Happy stitching!

- The inventory icons for the following poisons should now be correct: weak essence of weariness, essence of weariness, weak essence of lethargy, and essence of lethargy.
