Patch Notes: Version 1.97
Dark Age of Camelot
Version 1.97
March 11, 2009

The Camelot Team welcomes you to version 1.97! In this version we evaluated music and chant classes in all three realms, with a particular focus on how to alleviate some of the frustrations with the spell "twisting" dynamic of these classes. This patch also addressed ongoing issues with the 700 level tradeskill quests and increased the bonuses for crafting in the capital cities.

As was mentioned previously, today's patch version is the first one we have had since moving Dark Age of Camelot over to our new hardware and that it would give us an idea of how long our new downtimes will be.* It was also stated that if we saw a significant improvement in our downtime, that we would start increasing the frequency of our patches.* Today, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the downtime was even faster than we had hoped, and as a result, you will start seeing a steadier pace of updates.

NEW THINGS AND BUG FIXES

  • All existing characters have been granted a free Mythic Respec.
  • Bards, Minstrels, Paladins, Skalds, and Wardens will now be able to run two songs or chants simultaneously.
  • Flutes, Lutes, and Drums will now be able to play any song type, and will no longer be limited to specific songs.
  • The crafting bonuses that were introduced in 1.86 for the capital cities of Camelot, Jordheim, and Tir na Nog have been increased to a 20% bonus to crafting speed and a 10% chance to gain a skill point when crafting.

  • New Bug
    • With 1.97, we introduced the ability for certain classes to maintain an additional chant or song. However, while implementing this, we inadvertently introduced a bug that affects the Minstrel pulsing charm spell, preventing Minstrels from being able to cancel their charm and immediately re-charm their pet until the original charm fades. We are aware of this bug, and appreciate all the feedback thatwe received that helped us to track down the cause. We decided to go ahead with the version as planned, rather than holding it off until the bug was fixed and tested.
    • We are working on the fix , which will allow this spell to work as it did previously, and we plan to deliver it with a version 1.97a, which is currently being targeted for next Wednesday, March 18th.
    • Please keep an eye on the Herald for more updates.
    • We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
