UPDATE (November 9, 2001)
Just a quick note to tell you all that we've found
and fixed an unbalancing bug in dexterity debuff spells. This will have an
effect on all spellcasters who use these spells - we apologize for your
The bug was causing monsters to be debuffed at 10
times the amount they should have been. By high levels, these dexerity debuffs
would incapacitate the monster so much that they would not be able to hit
anything, making it obviously far too easy to kill extremely high level
monsters, because they couldn't fight back. We've fixed this, so now you'll
notice that your dex debuffs will be less effecitve against monsters - but they
will now be much more fair.
Please note that this change will not effect Realm
vs. Realm combat at all - it will only effect player vs. monster
Also please note that no characters who took
advantage of this (and you know who you are...) will be "rolled back" in
experience points. We're just going to fix the bug; nothing else.
