  • When you complete an item from fragments of the alloy material, the final item will have a chance to become any alloy metal type (steel, brass, bronze) depending on how well identified the fragments were – heavily weighted towards steel.
  • If alloy fragments are extremely well identified, upon combining they will have a small chance to come out as a moonmetal (seryll, glimmersteel, adamantine) – though steel is more likely again.
  • “metal” material fragments can only be combined with other “metal” fragments, and “alloy” material fragments can only be combined with other “alloy” fragments.
  • New: You can now create an archaeological journal to help record your investigations.

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.

PvP Mission changes:

  • Properly check the correct region when building mission structures on pvp.
  • Lowered the number of players required for x player missions on pvp.
  • Fixed rewards string for build missions.
  • Changed create/sacrifice missions to take into account more number of items properly (bell tower is more than 2 items, for example).

Bug Fixes:

  • Bugfix: Fixed the issue where all names on the UI friend list went blank instead of just the specified removed friend.
  • Bugfix: Fixed an issue which allowed you to plan a structure greater than your skill with no option to finalize or destroy the plan.
  • Bugfix: Bridge pavement is now removed when a bridge section is destroyed and reverted to a plan.
  • Bugfix: Recipe Cherries Jubilee should now be in everyone’s recipe book and can actually be made now.
  • Bugfix: Building door history is properly recorded whether or not you have an item activated during the lock/unlock process.
  • Bugfix: You should now be able to tar a floor board underwater to the same depth you can lay them.
  • Bugfix: Prying catseyes and waystones on deed should do more damage than off deed.
  • 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: Fixed a bug which caused items with glow runes attached to never cool down.
  • Bugfix: Fennel seed should no longer show as being made with a mortar and pestle on any spice in recipes.
  • Bugfix: Freedom Isle missions should properly reset after 3.5 days if the mission is less than 33% complete. Note that this only applies to missions that gradually tick up (not tree, traitor, build etc missions).
  • 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.
  • Note: This fix does require a tax check to occur on deed prior to taking off deed to correctly update the period between taxings.
  • Please allow a few weeks for everything to get a tick before reporting issues.
  • In the meantime, continue to move items from crates in racks to new crates in order to prevent the immediate tax deduction off deed.
  • Bugfix: Special wounds of same type and position will now stack, similar to normal wounds.

Example of this is a FA weapon causing multiple burn wounds to the same position on the body if hit there multiple times. The normal weapon wounds would mostly stack (with some randomly causing a new wound), but fire wouldn’t stack. That fire wound will now stack with any existing fire wound at that position.

  • Bugfix: Creatures should once again lose aggression if you walk a distance away and choose No Target.

  • This will provide firemaking skill
  • Resulting quality is incluenced by firemaking skill and quality of furnace
  • QL is based off your skill and the QL of the furnace (random QL based on both).
  • New: Attempting to dye an item with not enough dye will tell you how much you need
  • New: You can now paint/dye certain items with one color for the wood and another for the cloth portion.
  • Dye is removed from the wooden sections with a wire brush

  • Change: With the addition of adding a second dye color to some items, all dye amount requirements have been reviewed and adjusted.

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

  • Black > Shadow
  • White > Pestilential
  • Grey > Ash
  • Ebony Black > Molten
  • Piebald Pinto > Nightshade
  • Blood bay > Incandescent

  • 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.
