17th Sep 2023 patchnote

From now you will not be able to equip a ranged weapon if you have any spell loaded.


15th Sep 2023 patchnote

We've added safeguards to prevent innocent players from evading a PK and then committing suicide in order to give the offender Murder Counts even if they did not actually kill the victim. Please note: you immediately qualify to receive murder counts if you do ANY damage to an innocent player, however should they escape and intentionally die, the likelihood of the murderer being able to receive Murder Counts for that death are much lower or negated completely. If you are an innocent player and you intentionally evade a PK but then are still able to and proceed with giving them a murder count, this is now considered inappropriate and abuse of mechanics. Please don't abuse the game mechanics, it may result in punishment!

From another account: 1) go to the vendor and double click the Buy Order 2) target the matching object in your backpack to try to sell it to the vendor 3) if the vendor has enough gold then you will receive gold and your items will be moved to the vendor

~~ The Yew Crypts & Britain Sewers regions are currently undergoing maintenance and their entrances have been temporarily disabled. Expected downtime is less than 2 hours ~~

The Yew Crypts & Britain Sewers regions are now open again


16th Aug 2023 patchnote

Some or all undead pets may have skills that exceed the normal skill-cap of 700.0 due to those pets gaining Spirit Speak and Forensic Eval which will prevent players from training their pets beyond a certain limit once they reach the cap. To work around this issue, we've updated the Skill Cap for Undead pets to 900 to account for the additional 2 skills being trained on them. Note: This may be subject to change in the future.


6th Aug 2023 patchnote

We've deployed a few more hotfixes to try to improve some things.

Guards:

  • fixed edge cases with Guards attacking innocent players/pets erroneously
  • fixed Guards continuing to follow targets after they have died
  • when players & pets resurrect going forward, the resurrector will have their current-target cleared to avoid accidentally attacking the being they are resurrecting & ultimately getting guard-whacked

Mining Caves:

  • fixed issue with Mining Caves ejecting players too early
  • fixed issue with pets/objects not being transported out of the cave when you leave
  • added forges & lighting to the caves with a Mining Cave Tip sign; the sign explains that if you become over-encumbered in the cave, simply put excess resources on the ground and when you leave, the items will be transported to the entrance with you


5th Aug 2023 patchnote

PK Balance Pass

  • Guards will now attack murderers on-sight, regardless of if they have recently committed a crime or not, with a chase & kill behavior rather than instant-kill, allowing a chance for the murderer to escape (instant killing from Guards still only applies to crimes recently committed) https://youtu.be/cMIGzj08GNg
  • Townsfolk NPCs in Guarded areas will now react to murderers, regardless of if they have recently committed a crime or not, and cry for help (Guards will only actually react to crimes recently committed in this case though)

  • increased murder count time from 24hr to 72hr

  • consolidated short & long murder counts & all existing long counts will be converted to a single 'murder counts' value
  • cost to resurrect for murderers is determined by: all counts are worth 100gp per, plus any counts over 5 are worth 450gp per
  • removed Upon resurrection, if a player's short term murder counts are more than 5 they will be reduced to 5. causing the cost to resurrect for murderers to no longer decrease immediately after resurrecting, the price will remain the same based on the level of murder counts
  • added preventions for entering Britain Trading Post (West Britain Bank roof-top) for all murderers or criminals
  • player corpses will no longer turn to skeleton when the player resurrects within the same region, providing for the full corpse-to-bones duration to occur before the corpse head can no longer be cut off

Murderer Bounties & Leaderboard

  • added a PVP Leaderboard that shows Bounties, Vigilante Kills & Murders https://youtu.be/AXE6fml8O6I
  • innocent players that attack a murderer before they die, that are from a different IP/Machine, will qualify to turn in the head of a murderer; the corpse & head will list the names of all players that qualify to turn it in, if any

Tracking - Hunting Mode

  • Hunting Mode can be deactivated in the Tracking menu
  • Hunting Mode requires at least 30.0 Tracking skill points to use

Mining

  • Miners with at least 1 skill point higher than the required skill level to harvest metals above Iron will have a slightly higher chance to harvest them when finding veins

Dungeon Mining

  • will provide 15% higher chance to find metal veins above Iron & 15% higher chance to successfully harvest metals above Iron
  • will provide a chance at finding Rich Veins, normally can only be found by using a Prospector's Tool, these veins yield at least double the resources of a normal vein
  • will have a chance to spawn Ore Elementals while mining

Mining Caves

  • mining outside of a dungeon will provide a chance at uncovering Mining Cave entrances
  • only the player that uncovers the cave can enter it (including pets)
  • there is a 5 minute time limit to enter the cave, but after you enter you have 20 minutes to clear it out
  • you can leave a cave at any time by right clicking oneself and choosing "Leave Mining Cave" but each cave will either have a Ladder to climb out from or a Cave-style exit to walk through
  • should you die, or leave early for any reason, any objects, corpses, and pets will all be teleported to the cave entrance where you started to be recovered
  • caves provide the same Dungeon Mining bonuses as detailed above & can also spawn Ore Elementals
