Patch Notes: Version 1.82
=======================

Dark Age of Camelot
Version 1.82 Release Notes
Class Changes and Cross Cluster Guilds and Alliances
February 16, 2005

=======================


VERSION 1.82 INTRODUCTION Over the last couple of months, we have continued on the path that we started last year - gathering information from our players about what you want to see us working on next, and focusing on this information at the core of our patches. We will continue to poll for this information, as well as gather feedback from various community forums and the Herald. Based on your feedback, there are two main areas on which we have focused this version: Class Enhancements (specifically Hybrid and Assassin classes) and Guild and Alliance clustering improvements. Hybrid Enhancements: We have made extensive improvements to the Friar, Thane and Warden. As with the heavy tanks, our goal was to reinvigorate these classes to make them more fun and interesting to play. Each of these classes has received unique changes that fit their individual roles in battle. Please scroll down to the "CLASS CHANGES AND FIXES" section to read about the improvements we have made to these three hybrid classes. Assassin Enhancements: We also took a hard look at the assassin class of each realm with an eye for improving all three of them in overall performance, particularly in RvR. We have added improvements which better enable them to fulfill their role as stealthy one on one killers and castle infiltrators. Please scroll down to the "CLASS CHANGES AND FIXES" section to read about the improvements we have made to the three assassin classes. Guild and Alliance Clustering Improvements: We really appreciate all of the feedback we have received about this issue. At long last and in response to this feedback you have provided, we have implemented the ability for guilds and alliances to form across all servers in a cluster. Please scroll down to the "Cross Server Guild And Alliance Notes" for more details. We will continue to move forward with class enhancements as quickly as we can, but this will definitely require additional patch cycles and continuous testing and feedback. We know that you are each sensitive to when your class will be looked at, and we will be looking at them as quickly and carefully as possible. We are continuing to gather more feedback and we will be taking more polls in the near future to help us focus on what is next. Your participation and feedback is very important to us. We really appreciate your involvement in helping us to determine what we should be looking at next. Thanks again! Â NEW THINGS AND BUG FIXES
General Changes And Fixes Â- The restrictions on /bg grantcredit where a player less than master level 2 couldn't be granted credit for trial 5, a player less than master level 4 couldn't be granted credit for trial 7, 9 for 9, and 10 for 10, have been removed. Â- /gc note now gives the player feedback on where it's trying to write a note to, and will prompt the note writer if the target of the note is unclear. Â- In some instances, players were able to exploit certain quests and obtain more experience than was intended. This has been fixed.
Â
Â- The error message reported by the server when /gc invite can't find the target online is clearer.
Â
Â- All characters on an account (provided that one of the characters owns a house) now have owner permissions in the house no matter which server in a cluster those characters belong to. Â- Based on feedback from our players and team leads, the number of kills necessary in order to earn titles for the Realm dragons, Legion of Darkness Falls, and Shrouded Isles epic monsters has been standardized and reduced.
Cross Server Guild And Alliance Notes Â- With this version, cross server guilds and alliances can now be formed. Guilds created now have a "Home" server which matches the initial leader of the guild's home server. Players from other servers in your cluster will now be able to join your guild, and alliances including guilds from every server in your cluster are now possible. When necessary, the <guildname>-<servername> format will be usable, similar to dealing with matching player names. Â- It is now possible to add a guild or player from another server to your house's access permission list. Players and guilds will still only be able to claim homes on their home server.
New Titles Â- The following titles have been added for players who participate in killing Legion:
Â
Demonslayer
Demonbane
Demonscourge
Dread Vanquisher of Legion
New Emotes Â- The following new emotes have been added to the game:
Â
/worship
/drink
Â
Â
Interface Changes Â- When right-clicking on an ability (spell, style, etc), there will be an "Info" button available which will do the same thing as pressing the Delve key. Â- When right-clicking on an inventory item, there will be an "Info" button to delve it, but there will also be Salvage, Craft, and Repair buttons that will be highlighted if any of those are valid options. For example, if an object is fully repaired, the Repair button will be disabled. Â- If the object has a /use or /use2 ability, these will display beneath the buttons in the mini-info window. The icon and name of the spell will be listed, and the icon can be clicked and dragged to the quickbar. This can then be used to active the /use or /use2 ability directly. The tooltip for one of these icons on the quickbar will have the name of the spell which item is the source of the ability. Moving an item in your inventory which has a /use hotkey in the quickbar will properly update the hotkey so that it still works. Â- Switching objects between the backpack and worn slots will now properly resolve the /use hotkeys for the object(s).
 Character Art Notes Â- We have fixed an issue where most of the male Valkyn eye color options would show up green. Â- There is a new inventory icon for TOA Artifact Cloaks.  CLASS CHANGES AND FIXES
General Notes Â- The following Shield styles have a new animation: Shield Swipe, Mangle and Numb. Â- The Sledgehammer Hammer Style has a new animation. Â- The Arctic Rift Axe Style has a new animation. Â- Spiritmaster pets have received a slight graphic change. This change is only viewable in Catacombs and Darkness Rising clients. Â- There is now delve information for Sprint, Sure Shot, Critical Shot and Rapid Fire.
Â
Â- Spells or styles, including bleeds, slows, hinders and stuns, now properly display the effect inflicted in delves. Â- Subclassing spells, Rise of Hurt and Rise of Pain, are now correctly self-only damage shield spells. Â- The following classes have been given a forced full respec upon login: Bainshees, Friars, Infiltrators, Nightshades, Shadowblades, Thanes, Wardens and Warlocks.
Combat Style Changes Â- Reactionary combat styles now provide a 3 second window in which the player may use the style. When a reactionary style is available for use (such as after you block your target and you wish to use a block reactionary style), the reactionary style will register as valid and trigger as long as you use it within 3 seconds. In general, this will make it much easier to successfully perform reactionary styles against enemy targets.
Critical Strike Style Changes Â- A new stackable ABS debuff has been added to the Critical Strike line in the following manner: 8 Pincer - Pre-req: To side of target - Effect: ABS decrease 1%
29 Leaper - Pre-req: Hamstring - Effect: ABS decrease 2%
44 Rib Separation - Pre-req: Leaper - Effect: ABS decrease 5% Â- Critical strike styles that require the attacker to be stealthed will now destroy any bladeturn spell. The attack will hit the target unhindered. (Note: Before this change, the critical strike style would simply bypass the bladeturn, and the bladeturn would still block the next style. With this change, the critical strike style will actually destroy the bladeturn, preventing it from blocking the next style following the critical strike.) Â- Combat styles which require the attacker to be hidden will now only break through bladeturns when the combat style is executed successfully. Â- Critical strike styles that require the attacker to be stealthed will destroy any brittle guards that try to block the attack. The attack will hit the target unhindered.
Realm Ability Notes Â- In some instances, the Arms Length realm ability would break during combat or spell casting. This has been fixed.
Â
Â- The Bonedancer Realm Ability, Allure of Death, now uses similar art as the new Bonedancer pet art. Â- The delve information for the realm ability, Testudo, now denotes that it is only effective versus realm enemies. On the PvE ruleset, the delve (and functionality) of Testudo is unchanged.
Â
Â- The Heretic's realm rank 5 ability, Fanaticism, now reduces damage done by damage over time spells.
Master Level Ability Notes Â- Banespike will now provide a 15% bonus for 10 seconds. Â- Players can now have only one brittle guard summoned at a time. Â- Tanglesnare cast time has been reduced to 5 seconds. Â- Siege Wrecker is now on its own timer. Â- Arcing Power is now an instant-cast spell similar to Leaping Health from the Perfector line. Â- Spell timers have been re-arranged as such:
Dazzling Array 1
Enervating Gas 2
Inebriating Fumes 1
Mental Siphon 2
Choking Vapors 1
Sense Dulling Cloud 1
Energy Tempest 3 Â- Banespike now has a recast timer of 5 minutes. Â- The Master Level abilities Primal Agony and Agony Transmission no longer remove stealth when they do damage.
Bainshee Â- The Bainshee line of Frontal Direct Damage spells (Bawler's Bruise, Bawler's Outrage, etc.) now have fall-off damage similar to PBAE spells, but based on position, not distance. The frontal 45o arc of these spells will still hit for 100% of the spell's damage. Outside of this arc, damage will start to drop off to the sides, to a minimum of 25% of the spell's damage at the edge of the spell's arc. Â- Archery shots blocked by the Bainshee Wraith's Barricade spell line will no longer cause bladeturns to be removed.
Bonedancer Â- Bonedancer pets have received a graphic change. This change is only viewable in Catacombs and Darkness Rising clients.
 Cabalist Â- Cabalist pet speed spells from Vivification will no longer be overwritten by other speed spells.
Friar Â- The Friar Rejuvenation line has been adjusted in the following manner: The group Heal-Over-Time spells have had their amounts of healing increased and time increased to 30 seconds instead of 15 seconds.

Â
Â- Nightshade DoT spells are now castable while in combat mode.
 Ranger Â- Models of the Ranger Champion Weapons have been updated to better reflect damage type.
Reaver In 1.81 we adjusted spell timers of all classes to a new system due to overlapping issues with Sub-class abilities, Master level abilities, and class abilities. This adjustment was noted in 1.81 as follows: Â"- Many spell and ability timers no longer overlap from Class Spells, Master Abilities and Sub-classing spells." An inadvertent change to the Reaver lifetap spells occurred from this change, which allowed Reavers to cast lifetaps simultaneously instead of being limited to using one lifetap at a time. Because of this, we had to change lifetap spells back to the way they worked before. We apologize for any confusion about this issue. In the near future, we will be looking at rebalancing the Reaver class and we will pay close attention to improvements to the Soulrending line in particular.

Let The Games Begin! Â- A new gaming craze is sweeping the realms. Trifecta has finally arrived! A card game of chance with fabulous prizes awaits the adventurous. Dealers (named "Trifecta Dealer") have appeared in the capital cities (Classic, Shrouded Isles and Catacombs) as well as in the realm festivals. Try your luck today and see if you can get a Trifecta and win the big prizes! (Prizes are awarded randomly based on the number of matches made. Prizes and chances of winning are subject to change at any time. Celebrity voices were impersonated. Void where prohibited. Prohibited where void.) (You will love the prizes!) Â- The Rules of Trifecta: Trifecta is a game of chance where the player is shown three decks of cards and chooses one from each of the decks. The decks are then shuffled and a card at random is chosen from each deck. If the player's choice and the card drawn match, they have a match. Players earn a random prize based on the number of cards matched. There are three tiers of prizes based on one match, two matches, or matching all three; referred to as a Trifecta. Each tier awards a random prize from a pool for that tier. The value of the prizes for each tier is based on how hard it would be to achieve that tier. To play, a character need only buy a token from the dealer and give the token to the dealer when they are ready to start. (Dealers also offer the rules of the game and a list of possible prizes.) Â CAMELOT CLASSIC WORLD NOTES
General World Notes Â- Infernal powers have created a rift into each Realm's homelands. These breaches appear to connect to previously unknown portions of Darkness Falls. These uncharted caverns are rife with demons and undead adventurers from times past. Designed for characters level 1-4 and 5-9, these new dungeons allow new characters to be introduced to RVR combat in a dungeon environment, as well as provide an alternate leveling locale. Within each realm's portion of the dungeon, there is also a portal to the appropriate level battleground so that players can try out either form of RVR easily without much travel or hardships. Tomorrow's Realm Champions have to start somewhere.
Â
Â- A small number of monsters have been made uncharmable to prevent abuse.
Â
Â- King Constantine, enamored by the warmth of his citizens upon his return, has begun renovations of Cotswold. The layout in Cotswold has been changed to include the addition of new buildings. The town’s surroundings now accommodate a more welcoming approach. NPCs in Cotswold have been moved to new locations and horse routes have been adjusted. Please note - Under the Shrouded Isles or Trials of Atlantis clients, the bindstone and boulders may be missing some textures. Â- King Eirik, enamored by the warmth of his citizens upon his return, has begun renovations of Mularn. The layout in Mularn has been changed to include the addition of new buildings. The town’s surroundings now accommodate a more welcoming approach. NPCs in Mularn have been moved to new locations and horse routes have been adjusted.

Â- New sounds have been added to each realm's starting town bindstone.

Note: that at this time this is for the Realm side of the border keep, not the Frontier side. Â- Porters have been added to the secondary border keeps in each realm (Snowdonia Fortress, Vindsaul Faste, and Druim Cain). Note: This affects Regular and Classic servers only as the PVE/PVP servers already had similar NPCs.

The named Lieutenants in each realm that used to offer tasks to players between levels 5 and 49 have been replaced with sets of four NPCs offering Royal Excursions to specific level ranges. These sets of NPCs can be found near the area previously occupied by the named Lieutenants – at the realm's portal keep, near the Shrouded Isles portal in the realm's starter town, and in the realm's capital city. Players from levels 5 to 15 can receive Excursions from their realm's Sergeant.
Players from levels 16 to 30 can receive Excursions from their realm's Lieutenant.
Players from levels 31 to 45 can receive Excursions from their realm's Captain.
Players from levels 46 to 50 can receive Excursions from their realm's Commander. Â- We've also made a change to the structure of the highest level Royal Excursions to allow players level 46 and higher to accept tasks from any level between 46 and 49.

The NPCs that received this change are the Saracen Infiltrator, Kobold Shadowblade and Lurikeen Nightshade. All other stealth detection NPCs in the Frontiers remain unchanged. Â- To alleviate lag experienced at the primary border keeps (Sauvage, Svasud, Ligen), we have implemented a behind the scenes method to keep this area clear. If a character stays in the general vicinity of the border keep (5000 units) for more than thirty minutes, the character will be politely moved and warned. If they do not move out of the general vicinity (and stay out) within 15 minutes from the warning, they will be moved to their realm's relic village. Keeping the entrance area clear will help other characters load and zone efficiently. Â- Ronac, an old epic storyline monster has had its aggression radius reduced. Â- Midgard players will no longer /release inside a keep wall. Â- Terrain artwork has been updated in the Lions Den battleground. Â FOUNDATIONS WORLD NOTES Â- Players may now turn Prince Abdin's and Prince Ba'alorien's Remains in to the appropriate Taxidermists to receive the trophies.

The names of the merchants and their locations - Rosella (Castle Sauvage), Idone (Svasud Faste), Rae (Druim Ligen), Beth (Caer Gothwaite), Gunilda (Aegirhamn) and Faella (Domnann). Â- Say spam has been removed from the Dreaded Seal merchants.
Â
Â- Frontier keeps will now spawn significantly faster. When the Keep Lord spawns all players within the keep at the time of the return of its Keep Lord will be forcibly removed and placed in the Strength Relic Frontier Village appropriate for the Realm of the keep. Example: If a player is within Bledmeer Faste as Vaylin returns then they will be removed by Vaylin and placed in the Midgard Frontier Village near the Strength Relic Temple. Â- Dreaded Seals now benefit from the "underdog" server bonuses for Realm Points. Â- The delve information for Testudo, when delved on Gaheris, has been changed so that it does not denote that it works on realm enemies. However, on all other servers, it still denotes that it does indeed work only on realm enemies. Â- (Albion) Moved the portal master from Swanton Keep to Snowdonia Fortress to match the location of the portal masters in the other realms. Â PVP SERVER NOTES Â- Characters in the same battlegroup on PVP servers can no longer attack one another. Â- (Albion) Moved the portal master from Swanton Keep to Snowdonia Fortress.
