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

Dark Age of Camelot
Version 1.87e Release Notes
Zone bonus and class changes
January 9, 2007

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

<p />

NEW THINGS AND BUG FIXES


 - The bonus to experience and coin gained that currently exist in all Shrouded Isles zones is being changed.  The double coin bonus will remain the same and this bonus will also be added to all Classic zones.  The experience bonus will be reduced to 150% and this bonus will also be added to all Classic zones.  To summarize, all Classic and Shrouded Isles zones will have a 150% bonus to experience and a 200% bonus to coin for characters adventuring there.
     Note: Double coin and experience will remain in all RvR areas.

 - To complement the addition of the new border keep graphics, we have created an optimized version of the border keep that is used on the New Frontier side.  This should help with the visual lag on the New Frontiers side of the border keeps.

 - (Pendragon only) Fixed an issue with the new Warden Healing Over Time progression. The spells will now be awarded at the proper level. 

 - (Pendragon only) Wardens will now properly receive the level 32 endurance reduction buff Attack Unceasing.

 - (Pendragon only) Pets can no longer cast through water.
