Publish 56 Fixes Joanne Laroche 05 Nov 2008 18:45:00 We've got some fixes for Publish 56. They will go live with maintenance on Thursday morning. Here are the notes: Halloween 2008 · Increased the number of drones that spawn · Lowered the cocoons’ respawn timer from 5 minutes to 3 minutes · Adjusted the drop rate of gossamer and small spider webs · Gossamer will now appear in the player’s bag if they are among the top damagers. They will receive a random number between 1 and 4 · Rereading the journal can no longer be abused to reset the quest by circumventing the normal flow Factions and War of Shadows · Fixed an issue with Factions Elections not working properly on some shards · Implemented a Town Crier update system for the War of Shadows. Saying “news” to a Town Crier or Sherry the Mouse statue will list one of the towns under attack · Fixed issue with global Town Crier updates not being sent to Trammel from Felucca, and vice versa · Increased number of Lieutenants, Captains, and Generals and adjusted their hit-points per rank · Increased the DI and SDI on weapon rewards by five points across the board · Added bonus to kill-points and silver for killing enemies of a different side * Order: TB and CoM * Chaos: Minax and SL * Example: If an “Order” faction member kills a “Chaos” member, they receive 2x kill-points, and 2x silver * Example: If an “Order” faction member kills an “Order” member, they receive the normal points and silver * This effect stacks in “warzones” in Felucca (any of the eight faction cities) * Kill-points can be up to 3x, silver up to 4x * Bonus kill-points are not deducted from the victim, they’re just a bonus given to the victor · Town sigils will now properly teleport back to their pedestals when a town is “neutralized” as part of the invasion · Fixed the no spell casting area in Moonglow General · Fixed the issue where players were getting power scrolls in Ilshenar +++++++++++++++++ Higher chances for "medium" webs? (believe that "small" is a mistake) Does that mean, that the spellbooks can have up to 35% SDI?
