181220 Patch Notes 20/DEC/18

  • Clarification: The reason global rite spells may be seen frequently for a time:
  • This was caused by a large pool of favor being accrued from Rite of Spring not being cast for a long time. Once the changes came through, the restrictions required in order to cast it were loosened. This meant that players *were able to cast several times in succession.
  • This may occur a few more times on other servers, but afterwards the favor of the deity will be drained and it will not be able to be cast again until the requirements are met again.
  • This isn’t a bug but instead a side effect of the changes being made without clearing the existing favor of deities.

  • Change:As a result of this bugfix, we’ve also taken the time to review how climbing works, and have adjusted stamina drain to be tied closer to skill, with up to 2x less stamina drain near 100 skill (Non linear). If the climber has goat shape it will not stack, instead preferring to use the goat shape bonus over climbing skill.
  • Bugfix; Removed fishing trophy.
  • Bugfix: Handles are now properly consumed when used to craft higher tier handles.

181217 Patch Notes Gone Fishing! 17/DEC/18

New: Fishing is now interactive with many new features and items. New item: Fishing rod New fishing reels

  • Light fishing reel
  • Medium fishing reel
  • Deep water fishing reel
  • Professional fishing reel

Fishing Reels

  • Fishing Reels are added to rods so that they can be used for fishing. A fishing reel holds up to 1 line (which in turn may contain other things), and may be placed in a rod. Fishing Reels will take damage from use, with rare fishing reels taking less damage and less likely to break rod.

Rare reels make it easier to reel the fish in.

New handles for fishing:

  • Handle – same item as current in-game version.
  • Wrapped handle – same item as current in-game version
  • Reinforced handle
  • Padded handle

New fishing lines:

  • Basic line – used on pole, may only contain a (wood or metal) hook
  • Light line – used on basic fishing reel, used to catch smaller fish
  • Medium line – used on fine fishing reel, used to catch medium fish
  • Heavy line – used on deep water fishing reel, used to catch large fish
  • Braided line – used on professional fishing reel, used to catch ‘special’ fish

Floats Floats can be added to lines which affects which fish are more likely to be caught. There are 4 types of float:

  • Feather – part of butchered loot from rooster, pheasant and hen.
  • Twig – found on bush tiles.
  • Small moss – taken from moss.
  • Bark – found on overaged birch trees.
  • Floats will take damage over time when used, and will need replacing from time to time.


  • Hooks are added to lines to catch fish. There are 3 types of hook:
  • Wood – same as current item, better for fly fishing
  • Metal – same as current item, better for deep water / sea fishing
  • Bone – made from goblin skulls
  • Hooks behave as a container, which may contain bait, and will take damage over time as they are used.

Wood type will affect how fast a fish turns up

Bait When used on a hook, bait increases the chance of catching particular fish. There are 12 types of bait:

  • Fly – You catch these using a pottery jar with a bit of honey in it, on animals that require grooming.
  • Cheese Piece – Cheese Broken into smaller pieces.
  • Dough Ball – a small ball of dough.
  • Wurm – Found on dirt and mycelium tiles.
  • Sardines – Caught using fishing nets in shallows.
  • Roach – Caught in shallow waters.
  • Perch – Caught in shallow waters.
  • Minnow – Caught in caves.
  • Fish Bait – Small fish chopped up.
  • Grub – Found in shrivelled trees, prised out using an awl.
  • Wheat Grain – from wheat!
  • Corn Kernel – from corn.

Each time a fish bites on a baited line, the bait will take damage (e.g. the fish eats a bit of it). Bait is not required to catch fish (i.e. you can catch fish without bait), but the chances are a lot lower. Different fish prefer different bait.

Fishing Net The fishing net can be used to catch small fish in shallow waters. Small fish may be used directly, or turned into bait to use on larger fish. This is the only way to catch sardines.

Keep Net A keep net may be attached to a boat, and is used to preserve freshly caught fish (i.e. reduce decay). It can also be planted on the ground next to a player. Note that it must be planted, in water, to behave as a container; just dropping it will not allow fish to be placed in the keep net. It can only be picked up when empty.

Tackle Box The tackle box is a special new container designed to streamline fishing. As well as being a convenient place to put spare floats, lines, bait, and other fishing paraphernalia, it automatically replaces fishing consumables as they are used up. In particular, as bait and floats are consumed (i.e. reach 100 damage), if your tackle box contains a suitable replacement, it will be automatically be moved to the rod when it gets to 100 damage at the end of the fishing action. The tackle box needs to be in inventory to work, and a consumed item will only be replaced by the same type of item (e.g. a feather float will only be replaced by another feather float; it will not be replaced with a moss float).

The auto-replacing will happen at the end of the Fish action. The auto-replacement depends on fishing skill, with each item type having a specific skill requirement:

  • Bait will be auto-replaced at 10 skill
  • Hook will be auto-replaced at 30 skill
  • Float will be auto-replaced at 50 skill
  • Line will be auto-replaced at 70 skill or at any skill if reel exists.
  • Reel will be auto-replaced at 90 skill (does not apply to fishing poles as they don’t have reels).
  • When an item is consumed (i.e. it wears out), you will get a message at the end of the fish action.

Spears In addition to rod fishing, this update includes spear fishing. This utilises the current spears already in game, with no functional difference (as far as fishing is concerned) between metal and long spears.

Fishing Rod Rack The rod rack is a new container for storing fishing rods and poles when not in use. It operates in a similar fashion to a polearm rack, and has different models for empty and utilised states. Rod racks may be placed and secured.

Fishing Buoy Buoys can be used to mark fishing spots. They are floating items that are anchored to a particular item, and may be used to show special fishing spots, for example. Buoys use the same placement rules as sign posts, except they need to be placed on underwater tiles. They operate as light sources (similar to a street lamp), and may be dyed. If blessed will not use fuel, but do require fuel to be lit.

Water All water tiles are now categorised into 6 groups:

  • Sea – open water
  • Sea shallows – open water shallower than 25
  • Lake – enclosed water, larger than a pond
  • Lake shallows – enclosed water shallower than 25
  • Pond – enclosed water, not big enough to be a lake
  • Water – not big enough to be a pond
  • Note: Any water tiles underground, uses Lake or Pond (or Water)

Note: The calculation is performed on server start so modifying water sources will not change their type until the next restart.

Brackish water Lake water is considered fresh, while sea water is considered brackish. Brackish water can be drunk and used for cooking as usual (with no ill effect), and can be boiled to make salt – 1 salt per kilogram of brackish water.

General Attributes All fish now have a set of attributes which determine where and when they are more likely to be caught:

  • Preferred water type (lake, sea, etc)
  • Minimum and maximum depth.
  • Feeding height.
  • Rod types.
  • Time of day – some fish like to feed in the morning, afternoon, evening or even at night
  • Baits – each fish has a favorite bait, some baits it likes, others it is less likely to eat, and some it will never touch.
  • Outside or in caves – some fish are only found underground
  • Rare fish can only be caught on special tiles (which are out at sea).
  • Special Tiles
  • Special tiles are an area where special (rare) fish may be caught. They will now move with the season, and have been recalculated (i.e. they will have moved on server restart). Non-special fish types may be caught on special tiles, but special fish can only be caught on special tiles, and a lesser chance if close to a center spot. These areas can overlap, so its possible to find places where two special fish can be caught.

Special tiles are only found in open water (i.e. sea). Finding and recognising tiles is unchanged, and uses a pendulum.

New: Chicken coop added Requires 50 Fine Carpentry skill to create and continue.

Coop info Coops contain multiple sub items inside.

  • Nesting Box, This is where the loaded hens reside.
  • Feeder, this is where you place food.
  • Drinker, this is where you place water.
  • Egg Box, this is where you get the eggs from when they are laid.
  • Locks and permissions
  • Coops are lockable and spawn on creation with a 1ql small padlock.
  • Coops have manageable perms, like any other lockable container.


  • You can only load hens into the coop.
  • To load a hen, one must first lead one, then right click the coop and click “load creature”.
  • To be able to load the creature there must be water in the drinker and food in the feeder.
  • You can only put food in the feeder that can be planted. Example: pumpkin seed, or corn.
  • Loadable chicken count is QL / 10 + rarity (max 13 for 100ql fantastic).
  • QL must be greater than or equal to 10 to load a chicken.

Feeding and watering

  • Polling for the feeder and drinker happens every 4 hours at which time, creature count in food is subtracted from the feeder. E.g. if there are 4 hens loaded 4 food will be subtracted.
  • Also 250 grams of water for each hen will be subtracted from the drinker.

Egg output

  • Eggs will be created every 12 hours.
  • Egg ql is dictated by the ql of the coop.
  • Egg count is equal to the count of the chickens.
  • If either the feeder or the drinker is empty on egg poll the chickens will be unloaded on the center of the tile where the coop resides.

Misc. info

  • You cannot load a coop with chickens in it.
  • Chickens in a coop, on deed, count towards the ratio.
  • You cannot bash a coop with chickens loaded.
  • The egg box will only hold 100 eggs.

New: Tower influence chaining system on PvP servers: Influence Chaining An influence chain is any land that a kingdom has influence over that is fully connected (chained) back to a valid starting point for that influence. All kingdom capitals and starter deeds (for base kingdoms) are considered a chain start point, and any tower or deed in a kingdom must connect back to that start point via influence chaining.

In order for a tower or deed to be considered chained to a kingdom’s influence, it must have a continued chain of influence (from kingdom towers) back to a chain start point. Towers radiate an influence out to 60 tiles from their base, and deeded land has influence as well. Because of this, any new towers built must be built within a 100 tile range of another tower of the same kingdom (minimum range remains 50) in order to continue the chain.

In order to carry over the current state of towers on the servers at the moment, any tower within 120 range of another will still be considered chained, and allows for a valid spot between those two towers to build a new one to maintain the chain should one tower be destroyed after the update (and can no longer be rebuilt at 120 range).

There are a few penalties involved with this system to promote completing and holding chained influence:

  • Any tower outside of chained influence will no longer respawn tower guards.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will respawn spirit guard waves 3 times slower.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will no longer have guards maintain fences, bridges, floors and walls – similar to when a deed has less than a month of upkeep remaining.
  • Any deeds outside of chained influence will have on-deed mine doors take 3 times as much bashing damage.

Tower Conquest Towers will no longer be able to be conquered to convert them to your kingdom. To remove a tower, you will have to bash/destroy it, then reconstruct a new one within your tower influence chain.

Bashing a tower will now spawn waves of guards when it reaches 30, 60, and 90 damage, and waves will become more challenging as the damage increases.

At 90 damage, the kingdom that owns the tower will get a message in the Deaths tab stating that the tower is under attack.When the tower is destroyed, there will be a global message to all kingdoms on the server that the tower has been destroyed.

Change: Major priest rework. New Spells

Religious Demises & Protection

  • All of these demise and protection enchants have been removed from existing items. They will no longer apply to weapons and armour. These spells instead been reworked into the following spells to enchant jewelry.
  • All of these spells conflict with each other and Nolocate, meaning you can only have one of these enchants on a single piece of jewelry at a time.
  • Stacking two or more of an identical enchant across multiple slots results in a penalty to each one. This penalty is 33% reduced effectiveness for two identical enchants and 50% reduced effectiveness for three identical enchants.

  • Prayers and sermons now grant favor to the template deity instead of having a new pool for every demigod.
  • Rites now function off of template god favor pool when cast by a demigod.
  • Rites no longer require a specific amount of players in local to cast, and their deity favor cost is no longer dependant on the amount of players on the server.
  • All Rites now create a 24 hour window for players to claim the reward. Upon casting, any player of the same template deity as the caster can pray at any altar or applicable location (for example, Magranon can pray on rock) to obtain the bonus.
  • All Rites now grant up to 5 hours of sleep bonus and 0.2% towards 100 of a certain characteristic.

  • Rite of Death – Now grants 0.2% Soul Strength towards 100 and 5 hours of sleep bonus.

Healing Rework

  • Healing spells now work off a global healing resistance debuff. This debuff is applied based on how much health is healed on the target, and will reduce all further healing on the target from any of the listed healing sources based on how much time remains on the debuff. The maximum time is about 20 minutes, and the reduction scales linearly from that mark. For example, if you have 10 minutes on your healing resistance, you’ll receive heals at 50% effectiveness.
  • Cure Light – Now heals 15% + up to 5% more based on cast power. Previously healed 15%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Medium – Now heals 30% + up to 10% more based on cast power. Previously healed 30%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating that their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Cure Serious – No longer heals a wound fully. Instead, heals a wound for up to 90% + up to 30% more based on cast power. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating their wound was healed. Now deals more damage to undead. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles. Can now be cast on a creature and will automatically target their highest severity wound.
  • Heal – Now heals 40% to 200% based on cast power. Previously healed 30% to 150%. Target of the cast now gets an on screen message stating they were healed. Range increased from 1 tile to 3 tiles.
  • Life Transfer – Amount healed remains the same, but no longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Also bypasses the minimum damage threshold for healing, and will always apply some amount of healing as long as damage is dealt with the attack. Now works off the global healing resistance.
  • Light of Fo – Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Still limited to 5 wounds. Cast power heavily impacts the severity of wounds that are able to be healed. Cast time increased from 10 seconds to 15 seconds.
  • Scorn of Libila – Completely different operation. No longer heals wounds at random and instead prioritizes high damage wounds. Wounds healed limit increased from 2 to 3 per target. Now heals at minimum 3 wounds even if no damage is dealt. Each target that is dealt damage now allows up to 3 additional wounds to be healed, increased from the previous 1. Difficulty reduced from 60 to 50. Area of effect adjusted to 7×7 – 11×11 based on cast power.

Spell Resistances

  • Many offensive spells in the game now also have their own resistances. These function identically to the healing resistance above, but have much lower maximum durations for their resistance values.
  • Drain Health – Resistance applies to both the offensive and defensive portions of the spell. For example, using this to heal will give you a resistance to Drain Health, which not only reduces healing received from consecutive casts, but also reduces damage taken from others attempting to Drain Health you. Resistance is capped to 5 minutes.
  • Fireheart – Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes.
  • Fire Pillar – Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Fungus Trap – Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Hypothermia – Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Inferno and Worm Brains].
  • Ice Pillar – Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Inferno – Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Worm Brains].
  • Pain Rain – Resistance capped to 4 minutes.
  • Rotting Gut – Resistance capped to 2 minutes.
  • Scorn of Libila – Resistance capped to 5 minutes. Applies to damage portion only. Healing is affected by global Healing Resistance.
  • Shard of Ice – Resistance capped to 2.5 minutes.
  • Smite – Resistance capped to 5 minutes.
  • Tentacles – Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Tornado – Resistance capped to 3 minutes.
  • Worm Brains – Resistance capped to 5 minutes [Shared with Hypothermia and Inferno].
  • Locate Rework
  • Locate Soul – Now has a 2 minute cooldown. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Nolocate – No longer able to be cast on creatures/players. Utilizes Locate Resistance.
  • Lurker in the Dark – Now has a maximum radius of 100 tiles. This is reduced by up to 50 tiles based on the highest equipped Nolocate jewelry of a player. This is reduced again to 25 tiles when it’s a stealthed player.
  • Locate Resistance
  • When located successfully by another player, you obtain “Locate Resistance” with a duration based on the highest Nolocate power jewelry you have equipped. This resistance prevents you from being located by any player until it expires. At 100 nolocate, this duration is 5 minutes. Being located by other players in your kingdom will not apply a cooldown, even if you have Nolocate.
  • If the casted locate spell does not beat your nolocate (the power is lower than your jewelry), the Locate Resistance is not applied and the locate spell fails. The locate spell will still receive a cooldown.
  • The messaging is identical whether you resist a locate due to having a higher nolocate power or have Locate Resistance. This means players cannot know for certain whether you are resistant or whether their specific cast did not defeat the threshold required.

Specific Spell Changes

  • Aura of Shared Pain – Removed from Magranon. Added to Libila.
  • Bearpaws – Damage bonus for players has been increased significantly. The new damage bonus is roughly triple the previous values of Bearpaws. Bonus damage for non-players remains the same.

Player Demigods

  • Demigods now have a “template” deity that their religion is based on, selected from the four base gods.
  • These templates affect the affinities that each demigod provides. For example, demigods with Vynora as their template will be able to pray on water and get double favor from sacrificing pottery. Any demigod following a different template is unable to obtain these affinities.
  • Priests can now link with any priest of the same template. For example, this means that any Libila priest can link with any other blacklight demigod (Tosiek, Nathan, and Gary). Any priests of Tosiek, Nathan, and Gary can also link with each other.

The existing demigods have the following templates:

  • Libila: Tosiek, Nathan, Gary
  • Fo: Nahjo
  • Vynora: Paaweelr
  • Magranon: Smeagain
  • Demigod passives have been rerolled with the exception of the template passives (listed above).
  • Passives are now more likely to align with the template deity, but some will be outliers to create interesting combinations.
  • Demigod spells have been completely rerolled using a new system to distribute the spells.
  • The new system uses the affinities of the demigod to determine what type of spells they should obtain, as well as avoiding overpowered or useless combinations that render a god too strong or too weak.
  • Updated information regarding their current passives and spell lists can be found in this spreadsheet on the second sheet (Deity Information).

Miscellaneous & Messaging

  • Larger Window – The window that displays is now larger. This should prevent having to resize the window in order to see all the passives and spells available to you.
  • Passives Display – Now shows how strong your connection to your deity is (based on your faith level). This is then followed by the passives the deity is currently granting you.
  • Spells Sorted – Spells have now been placed into a sortable table. You can now sort spells by faith requirement, favor, name, or description. Targets are also available, but not exceptionally functional.
  • Updated Descriptions – All spells now have new descriptions which should more accurately represent how they function.

  • Salve of Frost – Converts damage from a weapon to frost.
  • Salve of Fire – Converts damage from a weapon to fire.
  • Potion of Acid – Converts damage from a weapon to acid.
  • Damage from all spells, including karma spells, now uses Soul Strength in damage reduction calculations instead of Body Strength.
  • Damage dealt to non-players is now modified heavily. Targets can take anywhere from 4x to 0x damage based on their armour and Soul Strength.
  • Maximum cast power for champions on home servers has been increased from 30 to 50.
  • Tile spells now use multicolor line messaging for casting, similar to creature casts.
  • Creature enchant spells will no longer give “would never help the infidel” errors when attempting to cast on an allied player following a deity that doesn’t agree with yours. Instead, this error now only occurs when *attempting to cast on enemy players.
  • Casting a combat spell such as Fireheart, Drain Health, and similar on an enemy will now display an on-screen message for both the caster and target when the cast begins and finishes.
  • Pillar spells (Fire Pillar, Fungus Trap, Ice Pillar, and Tentacles) no longer display a combat message when they deal damage.

180426 Patch Notes 26/APR/18

PvP Affinities and rank rework:

PvP Rank:

  • Rank is now more evenly split between attackers. Rank gained/lost depends on the total average rank of all attackers versus the killed player.
  • If there is more than double the number of attackers worth of rank to be split, half will be spread evenly and the other half will be spread based on the rank of each attacker (lower ranked attackers will gain more than a higher ranked attacker).
  • If there is only enough rank to be split evenly, then no bonuses will be given based on attacker rank.
  • If there isn’t enough to be split evenly, then it will be split based on attacker rank only.
  • Killed player will lose 75% of the rank gained among attackers, instead of 100%.
  • (e.g. 20 rank split across 5 attackers: Each of the 5 will gain a base of 2 rank each. The other 10 rank will be split between attackers based on their relative rank – lowest rank attacker might gain 3 bonus (total 5), next 3 might gain 2 (total 4), and highest rank might only gain 1 (total 3). Killed player will only lose 15 rank instead of 20.

PvP Affinities:

  • Affinity will now go to a random attacker instead of the “max” attacker.
  • Changed the chance for the affinity to be lost without transfer: If the chosen attacker already has at least 2 more affinities in the chosen skill than the killed player (before the affinity is lost), they will only have a 50% chance to gain the affinity. If the do not gain the affinity, another random attacker will get the chance instead.If no permanent affinity is gained, a week long timed affinity will be given to a random attacker instead. Killed player will still lose the affinity.
  • All other attackers will gain a timed affinity of between 1 and 2 days in the skill of the lost affinity.
  • Champions will now lose an affinity on death even if it is their only affinity.
  • If a killed player doesn’t drop an affinity (due to only having one, or none as a Champion), a random timed affinity between 3 and 6 hours will be given to all attackers.

  • Bugfix: Building door history is properly recorded whether or not you have an item activated during the lock/unlock process.

  • Bugfix: Fixed the double pray in the context menu for Nahjo on a water tile inside a cave.
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug which caused damage to water instead of a reduction of weight to the water during a failed tailoring advanced creation attempt. (Ex. Using water on a cloth shirt to make a black vested shirt).

  • Bugfix: Fennel seed should no longer show as being made with a mortar and pestle on any spice in recipes.

  • Bugfix: Followup fix to the January 2018 change to further address the lag on Elevation.
  • Bugfix: Items should properly decay and cool off while inside saddle bags and saddle sacks equipped on horses.
  • Bugfix: Additional fix to check that the 5% tax is not taken from crates stored in racks as soon as they are moved off deed.

180119 Hotfix 19/01/18

Affinity system adjustments: We’ve made some adjustments to the affinity system to improve how affinities are gained. we’ll continue to log affinities gained and adjust accordingly.

180118 Patch Notes 18/JAN/18

Changes and additions:

  • We have adjusted some creatures spawn tile requirements to prevent the over abundance of seal colonies on rocky shores. Rats can now spawn on rock near water and seals may spawn on beaches. We’ll continue to monitor locations of large seal colonies.
  • The ability to dig dirt or resources directly into a pile has been added. The keybind dig_to_pile will allow you to dig dirt and other resources and have them go into a pile at your feet. Once the pile is full, the resources will go into inventory. This is only available via the keybind which can be set in the console or in the keybind tab on the settings page.
  • Hell horses now have new colour names to differentiate them from regular horses.
  • Brown > Cinder
  • Gold > Envious
  • Black > Shadow
  • White > Pestilential
  • Grey > Ash
  • Ebony Black > Molten
  • Piebald Pinto > Nightshade
  • Blood bay > Incandescent
  • Examining a live horse or hell horse will now give it’s colour in the examine message.
  • Title for masonry 100 added – Another Brick In The Wall
  • Sealed containers can now be placed on merchants.
  • Sealed dye containers will now show the RGB in the title.

Affinity System Adjustments:

Overkilling Changes: (Note: Overkilling is the mechanic that stops any skillgain, affinity gain, rank bonuses etc from killing a player too often)

  • The time limit of 3 hours between kills to trigger overkilling of another player (after having killed them at least 3 times already per player) has been increased to 6 hours.

Overall kills on a single player are now tracked, and will count as overkilling if killed more than 3 times by any other player in a short time.

  • When killed in PvP a player will gain a death count and a 3 hour timer will tick down.
  • If killed while that timer is ticking down, another death count will be gained, and the timer will reset to the 3 hour mark and start again.
  • After this timer has ticked down, a death is removed from their count and the timer will reset if any death counts remain.
  • If a player’s death count increases over 3, then any PvP kills against them will count as overkilling until that death count is again below 3.

Affinity Changes:

  • When using a skill premium characters will now have a small chance to gain an affinity in that skill upon a successful skill check.
  • On average once every 2 hours, a character will open a 15s window of time where every successful skill check will have a chance to gain an affinity in that skill. (e.g if you are mining during this window, you could gain an affinity in mining, pickaxe, miscellaneous items, body stamina, body strength, soul strength, mind logic, mind, soul, or body)
  • The chance to gain an affinity is 1/500 if you have no affinities in that skill, 1/1000 if you have one affinity, 1/1500 if you have two affinities, 1/2000 if you have 3 affinities and 1/2500 if you have 4 affinities.
  • If an affinity is successfully gained during the 15s window, the window will reset and no more will be able to be gained until the next window on that character.
  • This window will remain open and check every skill tick until an affinity is gained or the 15 seconds is up.
  • We will be monitoring these chances and making changes as necessary.
  • Stealing affinities upon killing a character in PvP has changed:
  • If the dead character only has one affinity total, they will not lose that affinity and the killer will not gain an affinity.

If the dead character has more than one affinity, then a random one is lost and may go to the killer. If the dead character has more affinities in that skill than the killer, then the killer will gain that affinity 100% of the time. Otherwise, the chance for the killer to gain the affinity is dependant on the difference between the number of affinities in that skill each player has (before the dead character loses the affinity). If the difference is 0, the chance is 50% for the killer to gain the affinity. Difference of 1 is 25%, difference of 2 is 12.5% and difference of 3 is 6.25%.

  • If an affinity is lost by the dead character and none gained by the killer, then the killer will receive a timed affinity in that skill that will last for a week.
