    Stage One of the Abyss Flesh out
    We are starting to fill in the areas in the Abyss that are void of monsters, this is only the start but please check out the Abyss.

    Blackrock Stew Recipe Quest
    The Ophidians are attempting to discover the secret to the Bane Chosen’s Blackrock Stew! Will the secret recipe finally be revealed? Allies of the Ophidians are needed to help with the research; you may find the Ophidian cook in the ancient temple in the northern desert of the Lost Lands.

    Magery – Magic Reflection
    The magic reflection spell will once again be enhanced to provide additional tactical options in player versus player combat. At this time, any targeted non AOE spell, regardless of its circle, can be reflected (excluding Bards mastery abilities). This change will add variety and additional tactical options when fighting a character who has cast magic reflect. The magic reflection spell decreases the caster's physical resistance and physical resistance cap, while increasing the caster's elemental resistances. This spell now works off a pool, if you do not have any reserves left in your pool you only have to cast the spell once to replenish it, If you have reserves in your pool you must cast Magic Reflect once to remove the spell and again to re-add the spell.

    When a player casts magic reflect they will receive a pool of reflection power which is based off of their magery, inscription, and scaled by their magic resistance.

    The level of the spell cast on a target will remove power for the targets reflection pool. The more powerful the spell you cast, the better chance you have of defeating the magic reflection.

    If the spell is not successful in bringing down the magic reflect, the spell will be reflected back to the caster.

    Once a spell is cast that succeeds in depleting the pool of reflection power, it will damage the target. This is true even if the first spell cast successfully breaks the reflect.

    Once a reflect is broken, there is a 30 second delay before the target can cast reflect again to replenish their pool.

    Magic reflection will only be removed thru purging or recasting magic reflection with an active reflection power pool.

    Items of reflection will take 60 seconds to charge.

    After equipping a reflect item there will be a 60 second delay before the reflect is active.

    This will use only one charge from the item.

    The reflect will act in the same manner as if it had been cast by the character wearing the item.

    Once the reflect is broken, the wearer must wait 60 seconds before the item will place another reflect spell.

    Lumberjacking
    At GM Lumberjacking players will have a 10% chance for a Lumberjacking damage bonus of 100% from base weapon damage.

    Ninjitsu- Death Strike
    Reduced Death Strike damage delay to 3 seconds from 5 seconds and increased damage scale based on Ninjitsu skill. Death strike damage capped at 50 verses players.

    Detect Hidden Skill (Active Only)
    Hidden players who have been detected will not be able to rehide/invis for duration based on their hiding skill or magery skill. Players can now only freely detect hidden criminals, murderers, and other aggressor types.

    Mysticism
    Cleansing Winds:
    Now Factors in Curses
    Curse removal no longer based on chance.
    Each Curse Reduces Healing by 3 points + 1% per curse level
    Eg. Curse = Level 4
    Max Heal reduced by 12. Then by further 4%
    Curse Power = the Total levels of all curses in effect
    Max Heal reduced by Poison level
    Poison reduces healing factor by 15% per level of poison.

    Spell Plague:
    Now Triggers only on Spell Damage
    Chance to Trigger is reduced by 3% per 10 points in magic resist above 70
    30/60/90 -> 21, 51, 81 @ 100 resist -> 15,45,75 at 120 resist
    Base Damage lowered by 3 for each explosion

    Abandon Ship
    Harbormasters now have a context menu option that allows you to abandon your current ship.

    Abandoning your ship will cause the ship to decay within 5 minutes if there are no players on the ship.
    Once your ship has decayed you will be able to place a new one.

    Bug Fixes

    If you were having any issues with Compassion Potions they should function properly now

    Attempting to fire one of these still awaiting damage from a previous cast of one of the two will cause the spell to fail.

    Faction players will no longer be in the state of stat loss in Trammel

    To remove confusion House Teleporters can no longer be secured by players since they only work when locked down.

    a) Then what's the point?
    b) Do Siege's non-Fel facets count as Trammel for their check?

    Lives just got a bit easier for Thieves to 'setup' their mark. As did stealth attacks if you can't detect until flagged. Makes me want to start back up on my thief account. :)

    Well, sorta. If the Bok has HL or HF etc, im thinking that spell damage, would be boosted, ontop of physical hit. Also how would this work if lightening strike spell cast by dexer? Might still have some advantages.

    Yeah...I don't quite get that, about all that this helps is stealth tamers and stealth archers, this doesn't even make sense on prodo. (at a glance it may seem to help us thieves....but we can't reveal other people either now, so it both helps and hurts :/)

    I do like the change to magic reflect though, now people won't be able to hit me with poison to keep me from running and hiding :D

    the patch sux. the magic reflect changes are bogus. Before with gm scribe you could cast magic reflect + reactive armor and get a bonus to your resists 0 phys +5 elementals. Now it lowers your damn physical CAP. what a joke.

    Thats pretty weak. Now anyone can stealth around pretty much untouchable. Not that it really matters. I doubt there is much pking going on with the population so low, but LOL @those who complained about stealth and detect before this little gem!

    Nah, i don't agree, wanna detect people put the skill on your template...not everyone runs with zerg squads...there was still some solo pvp'ers left...
     
  21. Sunchicken

    Sunchicken Guest

    I would agree IF stealth didnt work 100% of the time at 80/100. You want to stealth around without being seen invest in the skill required to cap. If not you should have a chance at being revealed by someone with no detect hiden.

    No skill should give 100% sucess chance with 85% skill invested...
     
  22. Sunchicken

    Sunchicken Guest

    OR base stealth sucess chance on armour Imbue mod weight instead of what kind of armour it is being worn.

    Because stealth as it is it to easy.

    I understand your point completely...we are talking about 25 skill points in stealth that can be obtained by jewels very easily, hardly a make or break for the skill...

    On a side note how many people gonna run detect hidden now?
