As we grow in player count, we are tracking a performance issue that appears to be related to minimap icons (yes of all things.) We are disabling those and restarting to validate this.

We apologise for these teething issues, however we believe this will make a significant difference. We'll work on refactoring the minimap icon system and they will eventually return. In the meantime, use third party tools like http://lou-map.herokuapp.com/ to locate what you need. In particular, we'll have wandering healer locations up there shortly.

  • Fixed an issue causing non young players being warned about losing their young status.
  • Rare loot table adjustments.
  • Barding pets will no longer offer skill gains however the effects will still work.
  • Ratmen and Lizardmen may now be skinned for hides.
  • Ankhs should now resurrect Red players in the world.
  • Buccs Den now has more Red Wandering Healers that are spread out across town.

"We have found a place of great evil in the region North of Minoc. Trackers have informed us that a Northern Cave is filled with a monstrous and deadly Arachnid. We fear that this beast is linked to the creatures on the Peninsula. If they launch an attack on Minoc, we will be unprepared to defend against them. We beg you, find their nest and extinguish them. We will forever be in your debt warriors.”

~Julie the Artisan of Minoc
