Publish 57 has gone live on TC1. Patch notes are available in the regular place.
Pub 57 or Pub 58?
*mails a bottle of e-whiteout to EA*
A good good publish indeed. Im excited about the Christmas tree normals. Im SOOO glade I didnt throw mine away.
Yay! I will be able to dye my shroud!
Where's the Bag of Sending fix?
What ever happened to the fix for concussion blow?????
Sucks getting hit for over 90 points of damage in a 70s suit.
Freebie accounts can't use Bag of Sending but they didn't add the other part of the Bag of Sending fix to make it back to the way they used to work?
I don't like that!
Maybe they got so carried away on writting the thou shalt not's that they forgot to add the thou shalt be able to.
sure hope your right had so high hopes.
Weve discussed this on the siege thread...but ill post it here too
Apparantly were all dislexic!!!
The PvP(conc blow, diminishing returns + pets) wont be addressed until patch 85!!!
It appears theyve added BOS into that patch as well!
Seems they forgot to list trial accounts not being able to use BODs.
good publish, but
where is the change of the Bag of sending ??
I'm glad they're lifting the 15 day limit on new characters placing houses
Those changes and fixes are indeed good news..
... but I'm concerned about the things that are missing...
I note that restoration of the utility of Bags of Sending is not on the list; only prohibition on their use by trial accounts.
Change your mind or forget to put the change in the Notes?
PS: Should have read deeper in the thread; others already noted this. Sorry for the redundancy!
"Mirror images will now follow their summoners alignment correctly."
I wonder if that means blues can no longer kill them in tram?
Hopefully it was just a case of them forgetting to put it in the notes. Also have they changed there mind about reverting bags of sending? I was so lookign forward to the revert? I also wonder will we see some kind of revert or change in the way wood and ore is gathered now that trial accounts can only gather regular Iron and wood? Would love to see the percentages bumped some of the spawning rate of ore and wood.
Where's the next part of the event arc. Wasn't it supposed to be in this pub?
Re the BOS changes, wife just tested on TC, it has been un-nerfed, yay!!
Sent 20k gold, used only 1 charge. 3000k arrows also took only 1 charge.
So they do listen
Just forgot to put it in the patch notes.
thank your wife for checking
How does one test the removal of vendor fees on Siege with no backup of Siege
She says welcome and she did the test after reading your post annd those here
I was going to reply to your post until my wife told me you already replied here.
Just play on a prodo shard ...la
Just an FYI; the heal pot nerf ISNT on TC1 atm =(
Just tested 10 GH pots, every 10 seconds..
Do it soon please!
From the Champ Spawn Pub 58 Fixes and Q&A thread, this question was asked by a player and answered by Regine_EAMythic:
2. How do I receive a Replica?
Only players who worked a sufficient portion of the current spawn have a chance of receiving the Replica. You earn points for working the spawn. When the champ dies, a list of all the players having met the minimum point requirement is pulled. A roll is performed to determine whether or not a reward will be given. If yes, the player with the highest spawn points has a 10% chance of automatically receiving that reward. If the top player loses the roll, he’s put back in the list and a random player in that list is given the reward. You MUST be in the area when the champ dies to receive that reward.
The bug which allowed players who didn’t work the current spawn to receive the replica has been fixed and will be in Pub 58.
Has this been addressed in this publish as stated or am I just missing it in the notes?
Dang, I didnt even know you could stack 3,000,000 arrows.
***Sorry couldnt resist. That was my troll for the day***
Hah! That's because you don't have my artifact gauntlet of dextrous butter fingers!
Hmm, missed the notes! (Same with BODs being restricted, that's in there too)
There's actually more stuff coming. This is the first push to TC1 - I'd consider this list more of a "working list."
As far as I know though, the BoS changes are live on TC1. Someone want to give it a whirl?
Someone in this thread has confirmed it is live...
How are we gonna test the removal of 3X vendor fees Drac? I know you posted the code a week ago or so (all 3 lines of it) but honestly, before you publish, I'd like to check on a test shard exactly what happens to the vendor holding the bulk of my cash
I'm going to make a bold suggestion too....how bout preventing Trial accounts from using Test Center? People could use those to find "glitches" they can use on production shards and not worry about getting caught on TC with a trial account.
Just a thought.
With these trial account changes will we see them being more freely accessible to send to new players? Currently its very hard to find a website with them.
Yes, all the of the issues addressed in the Champ Spawn Q&A post will be live in Pub 58. There has however been a slight modifiction since that post was made. The range for Protection has been increased from 90 tiles to 200 tiles.
If you go to uo.com and click on "register a new account", it shows you the trial account code.
I see there is nothing in the publish notes in regards to the Cloaks of Corruption (enhancing with the threads) or what the magical lockbox is used for?
Or is that coming in a later publish?
Many thanks for the clarification.
Thank you for your reply!
Thanks for clearing that up. Also is the ps distribution bug eliminated? I mean the exploit that allows a player to wither the easiest part of the spawn and recall out and afk in wind and still getting scrolls without actually "challenging" the champ boss.
This change is long overdue. So if i read the thread correctly, players worked the spawn has a chance to get replicas while only players on top attacker list against the champ can get scrolls. Would you be so kind to confirm?
Yes, the Bag of Sending now works the old way on TC: 1 charge per 1 sending. Maggie tested it.
"Gift of Life will now offer to resurrect you after death "
Oh gee, we get something that we've already had for 3+ years! Awesome!
Other than that cool.
You do not need to attack the champ to get the Replica, as long as you worked a sufficient portion of the current spawn. But you need to have done sufficient damage to the Boss to get a chance at the powerscrolls. In both cases, you need to still be on the subserver to receive anything.
Proverbial horse menure... when you die, you are only "lucky" to be offered a rez from your "gift of life". Usually, death came as a result of a crash. You log back in and are still very dead, with no opportunity to regain life, as that somehow was no longer part of the deal.
Hopefully, what they wrote about is the fix to that problem
They are in expansion ramp-up mode. It was always iffy whether there would be enough time to perform those balance changes. There is probably a small chance they might be in the expansion itself but I wouldn't count on it.
Plus there was the whole controversy about trying to bring back the idea of diminishing returns.
Funniest post I have read today.
***DISCLAIMER*** The compliment to Lynk in no way denigrates, or diminishes the value of the Siege Shard. The comment was simply meant as a way to express my sincere appreciation for the razor sharp sarcasm displayed, is all...la.
What Happened To The Bag Of Sending Fix .. I Was Looking Forward To That?
You didnt read the previous posts... at all?
Direct me to it? I don't see it.
They don't usually announce event things this long in advance
Once you click the register new account bit, after youve made the account name it says enter registration key.
If you havent used a trial account on your info it will display a code above the box beginning something like FREEUO15-xxxx-xxx-xxx-x-x-x-x
Copy and paste that into the box (i recently started a new account using that to test the trail account restrictions.)
