system, you'll now notice that
your stat-buffing items have much more effect
than they did before - 50%
more. So, if you had a +10 strength buffing item,
it will now be
(automatically) a +15 strength item. You can see the new buff
your items by right-clicking on them and pressing shift-I (by
- Debuff spells are now very
effective against enemy buffs. You'll now
notice that debuff spells can "take
down" an enemy buff quite well. Debuff
spells are still effective against
non-buffed enemies, but are stronger
against buffed ones.

inconsistently. You'll now notice that you parry much more reliably
fighting other players.

the same way that it does for spells - you'll
see extended information about
the style, including when you can perform the
style, and what effects (if
any) it has. It also lists the specific style
required as an opening move,
if one is required.

where players could fire spells and arrows through doors has

(such as buffs and
resurrections) through walls has been

they will have it when you

RELIC SYSTEM NOTES
characters can no longer sneak into a Relic Keep, pick up a Relic,
out. The intent when designing the class was to let them sneak
into a keep,
but become visible once the Relic was picked up - so they could
be able to do
reconnaissance, or take advantage of a chaotic situation by
sneaking in the
keep in the middle of a fight, grabbing the relic, and
running. They were not
intended to be able to steal Relics on their own. So,
in light of this, we
have made the following two changes:
- Whenever a stealthed
character picks up a Relic, they will become visible.
- You can
no longer go into stealth mode when you are carrying a
SPELL SYSTEM NOTES
- Robe caster
shield spells have been increased in effectiveness to bring
them on par with
the target armor factor for their level.
- Some new damage
absorption spells have been added to bolster robed mage
defense, giving them
some absorption from non-magical damage. Each Robed
caster now gets a new
spell at 30th and 41st level, which gives 5% and 10%

- We updated the concentration spell system, so now
point costs have now been changed to use absolute costs.

when you cast lower level concentration buff spells, you'll
be able to cast
more of them, but when you cast higher level ones, you can
- All concentration buff spell casters now have a
choice of at least one
lower level spell in addition to their normal higher

- We changed the way buffs work to make them more
useful to casters who wish
to specialize in advanced buff spell lines.
Previously, there was little
reason to specialize in advanced buff spell
lines - you could buff enough
with baseline buff spells to hit the level cap,
making it essentially
useless to specialize in advanced buffs. Also, because
spell buffs had such
high values, the effect of constitution and strength
enhancing items were
severely reduced. The intent of the recent change was to
modify the effect
of the buffs as little as possible, but make items and
across all classes and levels. With this new system, you now
can have as
much enhancement as you did under the old system, but you must
buffs from items, base buffs, and specialized buffs - they all stack
one another and are now capped separately. So, with this new system, you
have as much buff in strength and constitution as you did before, but
must receive buffs from different places in order to reach
same level. Now, stat-buffing objects are much more useful, as
Stat buffs and debuffs should
effect the following factors:
Strength: effects offensive skill
for players and monsters.
Dexterity: effects defensive skills and casting
time for players, and
defensive skill for monsters.
attack speed for players and monsters.
Constitution: effects hitpoints
for players, and affects damage absorption
Remember that pets use the monster bonuses. Players can
have a stat buffed
up to 10 points or their level, whichever is higher. Also,
stack on top of normal buffs to add even more points (up to
- Mage dexterity buffs now correctly reduce (not add to)
- Fixed the graphical spell effects for numerous
monster spells. The correct
graphical effect should now play when a monster
casts a spell.
- Increased ranges on Theurgist spell lines
Blasting Breeze, Searing Wind,
and Frost Blast.
- The Runic
Ward line was set up improperly in the Runes of Suppression list

each other. The new progression is as follows:
L10 Runic Fend
L16 Runic Shield
L34 Runic Barrier
L44 Runic Wall

that there should be a separate hooded cloak

powerful than they

one-time drops - they now have quests

proc its spell.
While trying to obtain more
information about the newly discovered
diamondback toads in the Llyn Barfog
area, scouts came across what they
describe as a "two-legged no-armed goblin
with a nasty set of teeth." The
scouts also said that these creatures appear
to live in colonies that center
around ancient mystical rock formations.
Caution is advised to all who
travel along the western shores of the
