Issues Claiming Tokens

  • Some people have reported issues with claiming donation tokens after receiving the confirmation/receipt email. It has been found that copy/pasting the command to the game adds a space at the end of the command which interferes with the system. We've sent out a fix for this to be resolved after the daily restart, but if you encounter this please make sure to remove any trailing spaces or line breaks when using the /claimdonation command.

Patron Registration Issues

  • Some people have reported issues with the last account listed on their Patron Registration not being registered in-game immediately. Please let us know if you encounter this. A reported workaround has been found by adding a comma at the end of your accounts list in the Patron Registration, this may resolve it for you until we've solved the root cause. Edit your registration here: https://forms.gle/VKEdE6mu6c93gdJo7

Authorization Holds

  • Some people have run into longer than usual processing times for payments when using payment methods like PayPal or ACH/Bank Transfer. If you encounter this, there would be a delay before you receive the confirmation email and can claim tokens in-game. Usually, when this happens, PayPal or your bank is doing a fraud check and requires 24 hours (commonly) to 5 business days (rarely) to complete.

Requesting Help

  • If you encounter an issue and need assistance or have a question specific to your donation or Patron status, please submit a Support Ticket in Discord or send us an email to [email protected] for prompt assistance

The Animate Horse spell has been reworked in order to give more value to this Circle 8 spell and allow more room to explore new skills into Necro builds such as Veterinary.

See all the details in the wiki page here:

https://wiki.shardsofbritannia.com/en/spells/Animate_Horse

We've identified a performance issue, that can cause server-wide stuttering or lag, with the use of Parrying & Bandaging while being attacked by several other beings like pets or animals. We are going to work to improve this, but in the meantime please avoid using several beings to practice Parrying and Healing. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation while we work to improve the performance in this situation.

  • Fixed an issue with bonded pets dying causing a standing corpse to appear
  • Fixed an issue with non-armored saddles not staying on horses after they die, these saddles are now persistent
  • Fixed an issue with skeletal horses from Necromancer Animate Horse spell not persisting through region changes/teleports
  • Fixed an issue with Ogres not having any sounds
  • Added a Remove Favorite button to the Crafting Favorites window to be able to remove unwanted or invalid recipes

Cloaks now sit correctly on female characters.

All cloaks and the quiver will now sit correctly on female characters.

This is just a reminder about Patron Benefits & Donation features are currently in testing on our Test Center server and all current Patrons have been granted permission to Test Center.

If you haven't yet, please take the time to read over the pinned message in the testing thread and test the new features out: https://discord.com/channels/369023244038045697/1038158241873535108

Thanks, once more, for participating, we had fun looking at your houses and hope you had fun this Halloween season. ^_^

Recent Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue with Stablemasters saying "no pets found" even when pets exist in the world
  • Fixed a display issue with New Character Creation screens preventing new players from seeing their characters
  • Fixed an issue with the Grandfathered Medium Brick house having a public vendor limit of just 1, which has been corrected to the intended value of 4
  • Fixed an issue with not being able to craft some True Britannian faction gear items

Recent Changes:

  • The Ranger's Quiver is now blessed retroactively, but they will still lose durability
  • Improved the New Character Creation menus to be more fluid and fix some layout issues, plus added some additional Character Build presets
  • Turned the Server Alerts for Lottery back on
  • Added a new speech command "house menu" for players to be able to open the house menu from anywhere inside the house, perfect for those in large houses
  • Increased minimum inventory stock for Faction Mage vendors
  • Reduced overall chance for Weather to begin & increased duration for weather once it's started

The deadline has now passed for the House Decoration Contest and no more entries will be accepted. The team will review all the entries and decide on the winners, to be announced on Friday evening, US time zone. Thanks to everyone who is participating and excellent work on all of the detailed & creative decorating!

A lottery stone has been placed at West Britan Bank. Server-wide alerts have also been re-enabled for Lottery Stones since recently resolving a server crash related to Discord alerts.

An issue has been fixed causing some Halloween activities to end prematurely. Pumpkins and Halloween Camps have been respawned in the overworld and the Sewers. Costumes can now be worn until Dec 1st this year since we added them late in the season, they can be worn again after the daily restart on Nov 6th 9am UTC.

Reminder: Halloween activities will end for the season on Nov 8th at 9am UTC, the Candy Vendor at Britain Bank will be available until Dec 1st allowing you more time to finalize any trades & purchases.

This is a reminder of the House Deco Contest and there are only a few days left until the deadline on November 8th!
