Dark Age of Camelot
Version 1.83 Release Notes
Class Changes and Art Revamps
April 19, 2006
VERSION 1.83 INTRODUCTION
Last year, we asked you where we should put our focus. The polls, message boards, and emailed feedback all pointed to RvR and Class Enhancements, TOA Changes, and Tradeskill Improvements. In version 1.83, we have made a great deal of progress on these top issues, with Class Enhancements being a large part of our focus.
In 1.83, we have delivered the following:
Hybrid Enhancements: We have addressed three hybrids for this version - the Valkyrie, the Paladin and the Valewalker. As with our last two patches, our goal was to give each of these classes enhancements to their current abilities. We are also introducing new abilities to make them more desirable in RvR combat.
Healing Enhancements: We have addressed the Cleric, Healer and Druid with an eye towards overall improvement, but especially their heal spells and underperforming spec lines. Here, we are extending the length of RVR battles. We are also enhancing the archetypeâ€™s utility beyond simple healing/buffing.
Art Upgrades and Underwater areas: To ensure that Camelot remains the most visually beautiful MMO on the market, our artists have been hard at work revamping more than sixty structures in the game. Our content team has also added underwater adventuring in Midgardâ€™s homeland, and look forward to deploying the same to Hibernia and Albion in future versions. Finally, we have redesigned the Leirvik Battleground.

Â - Dark Development - Players who were not receiving credit for defeating the demonic version of Keeper Anataeus will now receive credit appropriately.
NEW FRONTIERS WORLD NOTES
Â - The hasteners at the secondary border keeps (Cain, Vindsaul, Snowdonia) have been moved down the hill to match the location change made to the hasteners at the primary border keeps.
Â - Tightened and slightly moved the location where players are ported to if they are teleported from the primary border keeps. This should prevent the rare case in which a player would be ported into an object.
Â - We have modified the mechanism that moves players from the primary border keeps if they remain in the area for too long. If a player now leaves the general area around the primary border keep, the new mechanism will reset the proper timers. The timers will then restart properly when the player returns to the primary border keep later. This will solve the issue of a player returning to a primary border keep and being moved sooner than expected.
Â - Caradawc has finally made the trip to the New Frontiers to join his ravenclan brethren.
Â - (Midgard) Fjall and his friends will no longer path all the way up the hill to Vindsaul Faste. This should prevent them from attacking unsuspecting players.
