Tonight's maintenance window @ 9am UTC (approx 1h 10 mins from the time of this notice) will be extended by up to an hour while we work on the 'lag' issues that are currently being seen.

Thank you as always for your patience.

Group Combat, Shared Loot

  • group healthbars with heal/cure/bandage buttons
  • group consent added to toggle allowing combat/looting between group mates & you will be asked if you want to consent when first joining a group
  • group auto-loot sharing added, will distribute loot between nearby groupmates when using auto-loot on non-player-corpses
  • group invite setting added to toggle allowing all group members inviting to the group without needing to be promoted

Criminal Action Confirmation

  • now has 3 options: Allow Criminal Actions, Ask Me First, Prevent Criminal Actions
  • change this setting in Character Settings under the Combat tab

Combat Target Restriction

  • wiki page added: https://wiki.legendsofultima.online/en/combat#target-restrictions-new-feature
  • allows players to restrict selecting mobs to a certain type like: All, Monsters, Players, and more
  • added to character settings & can also click the top-right corner button next to minimap to quickly change this option, previously this button changed the Confirm Criminal Action toggle
  • this option is meant to reduce misclicks when trying to select certain types of mobs in close encounters with lots of mobs
  • example: if you set this to Monsters, then you will only be able to select Monsters when clicking mobs to target them for combat
  • should not affect spell-targets or other item-based manual targeting, and will still be able to target mobs normally with those actions

General Combat-Related Changes

  • using bandage self, bandage last or bandage button from group healthbar will no longer change current-target on use
  • potion toxicity on self-healthbar will now only appear when toxicity is above 0
  • when logging out in a house you have permission to or in a public inn, you will no longer be required to wait 2 minutes before timing out due to recent combat with non-player beings, previously attacking monsters or other beings would affect this
  • added Enter Combat w/Spellcast option so that mages without melee skills don't have to toggle warmode after casting
  • you can now see your guildmates/groupmates when they are dead, regardless of if they are in war mode or not

New Custom Client Actions

  • Custom Client Action 3 is now Nearest Target option
  • Custom Client Action 4 is now Cycle Target option
  • both of these options work in conjunction with the new target restriction option
  • these actions can be set to hotkeys under Settings -> Keyboard

Hotfix from today:

  • resolved town vendors stealing people's money when trying to buy Used items from them
  • town vendors should finally clear out their Used inventory regularly

Hotfixes/changes from last week:

  • resolved not being able to give murder count to characters when dying from Poison spell in some cases
  • poison will now fall off if the caster is a player and dies around the victim
  • fixed issue with house sign not setting owner after transferring house sometimes showing previous owner or no owner at all
  • Missing when attacking in combat is now fixed
  • Not being able to split stacks is now fixed

Please log out and back in to the game to enable these fixes.

Today on Memorial Day, we honor and remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. We are eternally grateful and forever indebted!

  • Added CAPTCHA to Mining, Lumberjacking, Fishing
  • Private houses can now have 1 vendor
  • Fixed issue with Max Vendor limit on houses being calculated incorrectly (if your house already has too many vendors, they may remain for now but you will be unable to add more)
  • Fixed issue with clockwork golem (possibly other recipes) not crafting
  • Fixed issue with the unfinished keg being treated as a container and causing items dropped to them to disappear
  • Fixed issue with attacking a pet when the owner is hidden nearby causing the pet to flag crim and the owner to get guard whacked
  • Fixed "drink" option existing on prized fish (does not affect old fish)
  • Fishing outside of town now has a chance to spawn a snake
  • Potent potion recipes removed since Gardening skill is not accessible right now

Town NPC Changes

  • Bowyers will now sell Bows, Siege Bows, and Heavy Siege Bows.
  • Bowyers will now buy bows from players.
  • Minoc now has an Armorsmith at the Forgery, a Bowyer at Warriors' Battle Gear, and a new Jeweler Shop named Gorgeous Gems.
  • Players can no longer create Camps while inside Guard Protected towns.

The servers will be going offline for updates in 15 minutes. Please make sure you have the latest version of the client installed. We will post again when the update is complete and the server is coming back online. Thanks for your patience

An issue with Fishing erroneously saying "go outside of town for gains" when you are already outside of town has been resolved. This hotfix will be available after the next scheduled server restart.

An issue with Stablemasters not detecting pets from outside the region you're in has been resolved but will require a server restart to take effect.

Go play!

It's not going to answer every question, but we hope we've covered the important ones! Something to read while waiting for the main event:

We are back online. Have fun, go play!

Warriors, rejoice! The Colosseum has moved to its new and permanent location, an island just outside of Buccaneer's Den. While it will be used for PVP server events, it is also intended to be a general use area for consensual, non-faction PVP. Thus, the following rules will take effect in the area after the next restart:

  1. Combat and murder actions will not flag as criminal on the island. You will not receive murder counts on the island.
  2. If a red is killed on the island, their next immediate resurrection will be free. Short term murder counts will not reset, and the free res does not apply if you were killed anywhere but on the island.
  3. You cannot mark runes at or recall to the island. Teleporters are up at Britain Bank and Buccaneer's Den moongate.

Full loot is in effect on the island, so tread lightly. For those brave enough, glorious combat awaits!

  • Mana Vampire can be cast upon thyself again and will properly do a Resist and Gain check, where previously it would prevent it.
  • Ethereal statue should no longer get stuck in your pocket if you cannot mount for one reason or another; if it does somehow get stuck, logging out completely and logging back in will move it to your backpack
  • Fishing skill can no longer be gained above 70 while inside of town
  • Fishing will no longer yield anything more than basic fish or loot while inside of town
  • Plant harvesting amount has been adjusted and we will continue to improve spawns if needed
  • An issue with clicking on a news notification from the list not opening the appropriate article
  • Fixed system message showing when using runebooks referencing "a recall rune"
  • Summoned creatures should now properly decay if they have lost their owners
  • Fixed an issue with stealing from a stack causing multiple items to pile up in your inventory
  • Murderers who repent will now need to wait 72 hours to resume hostilities.
  • Murderers will now need to pay 200 gold per long term count when resurrecting.
  • Bosses in various high level encounters have gained new tactics and reinforcements based on the number of players engaging them.
  • Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause murder participants to not receive multiple counts.
  • Ranged damage and healing will now produce more threat.
  • Combat journal will now display entries in descending order.
  • Combat journal will now only refresh when new data is available.
  • Fixed a bug causing floating damage numbers to be reported twice.

Titles should now be fixed. Upon next login, you should be granted all missing skill titles.

We are still monitoring the issue of titles switching even when "Lock Title" has been selected- if you see this issue, please report it with /bug so we are able to triage. Thanks as always for playing!
