Patch Notes - March 31, 2018

Class Changes:
A new stance, Juggernaut’s Rage is now available for warriors, along with the 3rd warrior class tome that enhances this stance. (Yes, warriors are in a strong position so the timing is unfortunate; knights will get some love in the future).
More about this style:
-Available for all levels at 65, overrides old /s 2. (This might be changed in the future, but from what I’ve seen/asked around, warrior /s 2 is very seldomly used).
-While in Juggernaut’s Rage, the warrior has slightly more attack speed, but severely reduced tanking capabilities.
-While in Juggernaut’s Rage, gain access to a new ability, reckless strike, that deals damage to the warrior and its target, based on a % of the warrior’s health.
-While in Juggernaut’s Rage, foelock does not apply, bloodlust has a small aggro decrease instead of increase.
-When leaving Juggernaut’s Rage, endurance is exhausted and a debuff is applied for 3 ticks.
-Ranks of the class tome reduce the cooldown/stamina usage for Driving Strike, Rampage & Whirlwind as well as increasing the damage on reckless strike.
-Each rank of the class tome overrides a warrior ability and enhances it while in Juggernaut’s Rage.

UI/Client:
-Clickies and AAs should report their cooldowns more uniformly. (Item clickies will now show hours/minutes/seconds like AAs.)
-The bandolier’s functionality has been updated:
Swapping sets will reset attack speed, etc.
Shielding will cease when swapping sets.
Additional logging has been put in place around rapid set swaps. We are working on a long-term fix for swaps resulting in lost items or items being placed in the wrong slot, but in the meantime have improved logging. **As a reminder, deliberately attempting to bug out the client will result in significant jail time.**

Items:
-A new rank of type 3 augs currently exists somewhere in the game. Someone in Ikisith might know more...
-Jenrok Combine items have been updated.
-The Yclistian Rod of Primacy’s clicky effect (Yclistian Runeward) can now be cast without zone restrictions.
-Honor Blade of the Rujik had its bugged haste effect changed from combat to worn.
-Graven Rondache now has a worn model.
-Paw Bone Earring is now spelled correctly, and the Ferocity I on it functions as a worn effect instead of a
combat proc. -Delusionary Shawl’s Healing Increment IV now functions as focus effect instead of a combat proc.
-The following items are no longer stackable:
Beastcrown
Copper Locket
-Both versions of Bangle of the Devout now contain the correct bane damage listing.
-The following items have been given new icons to better represent how they look when held:
Regurgitated Blade
Soulsong
Surging Hammer
-Many fished fish have been given new icons to better represent their names and to make it easier to tell them apart.
-(Old news that never made it into last month’s patch notes) The Handmade Backpack recipe now produces a
one-charge Folded Handmade Backpack, allowing crafted backpacks to be sold via listsold.
NPCs:
-A new adept called Cyclonus, The Wind's Revenge, has been added to Northern Badlands (max engage level 39).
-Eyes of the Father has been made less buggy, though be aware some mechanics may have changed a bit.
-Fixed aggro of voidlings in Cyrtho Malath.
-Gelatinous cubes in Oggok Mines and Newport Sewers have had their original, non-icy appearance restored.
-Spell vendor nametags now tell what type of spells they sell. For example, Wexford now has (Ranger Spells) underneath his name instead of (Shopkeeper).
-A merchant and a banker have been added to the following deity planes:
Plane of Air (Shiritri)
Plane of Earth (Sihala)
Plane of Entropy (Gradalsh)
Plane of Frost (Shojar)
Plane of Torment (Sivyana)
Plane of Valor (Enthann)
Plane of Water (Tarhansar)
Tower of Tarhyl (Tarhyl)

Quests:
-A new quest allowing players to dye (unused) Handmade Backpacks has been added to the game! Look for a handsome Troll lass somewhere in one of the big cities for more info…
-The imprisoned druid quest in The Warrens should now work properly.

Spells:
-Over 180 buffing and summoning spells with pointless recast times have had those recast times removed. This includes:
Call of the Predator
Relic: Ward of Nature
Almost all utility summons
Most forms of illusion, pet haste, levitate, and movement speed
-The following spells have been recategorized for the right-click spellgem menu in order to better describe their functions:

Chloroblast

Remedy
Runic: Spirit Graft
Wrath of the Beast
Zealot’s Strike

-ENC charm spells now give landing messages when successfully cast on a target.

Miscellaneous:
-Forest of the Fallen: Bzztzz Hive will hopefully no longer crash the zone. Bzztzz Kamikazes should no longer summon.
-The server can now account for items with an effect and haste at the same time (even though they might not show up in Fomelo correctly yet).
-Fixed imprisoned druid quest in warrens.
-Fixed aggro of voidlings in cmal.
-Added cyclonus, the wind's revenge to northern badlands. max engage 39.
-Honor blade of the rujik had its bugged haste effect changed from combat to worn.

Patch Notes - February 13, 2017

Big changes for this patch. Some of them are too big to fit here, links are provided for further information.

- Opuses (Opii?): these will no longer drop from raid mobs, but instead from harder exp-able mobs. Please see here for further information on this.

- AA: Our first new AA in a long time! Pet classes have a new AA available, "Suspend Minion." Along with its companion recall AA, it allows you to stash your pet safely away while you're, for example, trying new content and don't want to risk losing weapons and gear. See here for further information on this.

- Loot: Blade of the Prime Animation is now NO RENT. Note that this DOES NOT affect existing swords, only new ones that drop. The new swords function identically to the permanent ones.

- Animation of Sil`rel`din: Speaking of that guy, a few grammar fixes were made. If you have triggers, they may or may not need to be changed.

- Beastlords: Pets will no longer mimic chest or wrist procs. This is in lieu of a proposed change which would have set cooldowns on mimics; this seems like a better route. - Adepts: 6 new adepts can be found in the world for players levels 12-21.

- Camping: a newer, faster camping method has been implemented. You will no longer get a disconnect screen, and camping is several seconds faster, particularly when camping to desktop.

- Roleplaying: The "RP" flag is dead. Long live RP flag. Existing flags have been removed and no new ones will be forthcoming.

- Feign Death: Beneficial procs from players will not hit feigned death people and cause unexpected agro. Normal group spells, and detrimental spells, will still behave as they currently do.

- Models: Classic skeletons no longer have bugged textures.

- Models: Pandas in Sundered Mountains no longer have bugged textures.

- Models: The following mobs in Sorcerers Labyrinth no longer appear as human: a prototype, a rogue watcher, Eerizar

- Items: The following items no longer weigh 0.0: Addys Emerald Eyes, Armored Pinchclaws, Battys Black Leggings, Bloodied Sivakian Scale, Liodreth Brain, Treasured Bangle, Vial of Diseased Filth

- Items: A Slice Birthday Cake is now A Slice of Birthday Cake

Patch Notes - January 30, 2017


This is a significant patch on the back-end. As a result, there is a higher-than-normal probability that things may not work as expected, particularly with respect to spells. If you encounter a problem, please report it (ideally in Discord) with what spell was being cast, where, and what it was/wasn't doing.

- Adventure Band: Members of a disbanded adventure band will now receive any residual experience that was left behind, rather than it simply evaporating
- Sanctum: You can now always use the "backdoor" port to get in between The Custodian and The Final Ward regardless if The Custodian is up or not. However you cannot proceed backwards to engage Nylastraza, The Custodian or anything in between. Please report weird/unexpected behavior to Dev-Rymy or petition if Dev-Rymy is not around
- Adepts: 4 new low level (player levels 1-9) adepts can be found in the world!
- Spells: Mass Revivification should now actually do things
- Spells: Group port spells should now take all the members, even when in the same zone. If you have people get left behind, please report which specific item or spell was affected, whether you were in a group or raid, and whether you were in the same zone as the spell was cast
- Friends: Assuming you have some, the friends list should be fixed
- Mobs: some mobs which should have been reptile bane that instead were Unknown should now be the correct bodytype

Patch Notes - January 20, 2017


- Translocates to bind should work now
- Wizards should no longer be prompted to accept their own translocates. If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?
- A new location has been added for the new fancy tmap!
- Switching bandolier sets will now reset most stances. Warrior /s 4 stance, as always, is exempt from this
- Clients should no longer bug out when a trade is cancelled

Patch notes - 2017-12-31

Last patch of the year!

I've added 2 big features that have been long requested even back in 2.0 but never really worked correctly in that client and subsequently weren't implemented.

Rez dialogs!

When a rez is cast on your corpse, you will receive a popup window with information as to who is rezzing you and what percentage of your exp debt it will restore.

Translocation confirmations!

Similar to rezzes, you'll get a popup with the person casting the spell and where the port will send you to. Since there's now a confirmation, you no longer need to be grouped to cast Translocate spells. Hooray! There is however a time limit of 30 seconds to accept a translocate, unless you're in a zone that you're able to bind, in which case there is no time limit.

Taryth also added another neat feature:

Bandoliers!

  • You can bring up the Bandolier window by pressing B and setup weapon profiles which can then be hot swapped either from the window itself or by creating a hot button.

In other news:

  • Thaz wing flags will now show up on your keyring.

  • 4.3 loot adjustments are in

    • Spell AC has been removed from the robe and replaced with 150 normal AC
    • Enchanter has been removed from Bane of the Fallen God. They now have their own replacement weapon
    • Bard sword is no longer 100% chance to double attack, but instead provides a boost to your base double attack skill
  • Nylastra'Zara shouldn't bug out anymore.

Upper Thaz is now live!!!

Patch Notes - December 10, 2017


- Group and raid improvements are finally here! The changes are too numerous to update, so we created a forum post with full details on them along with how to use a couple cool new features. You can find it at https://shardsofdalaya.com/forum/threads/upcoming-group-raid-improvements.30591/#post-311119
- Hate list functions have been changed internally in preparation for pet improvements. Please report any weirdness with respect to hate, as everything is expected to continue to function as before
- Identify should work again
- Players can now use /cm viewpetition and /cm deletepetition to manage their own petitions
- Celestial well can only be cast on players, which eliminates crashing caused by targeting pets
- Removed OP_Loot comments from corpse looting messages since they mean literally nothing to players
- Cabin Boy Shin now has another option for getting in to see the Captain in Hates Fury B if you were upset by the previously...violent...method. Consider talking to him about it.
- Changed some spawn timers a bit. We'll let you figure out which ones
- Completed rollout of Steam-based textures. If you are still on the old Titanium install, you are doing it wrong and probably see all kinds of humans and such
- Added a feature to the patcher that auto-archives logs once they reach a certain size. When enabled, files exceeding that size will be backed up (but not compressed) and a new log started as you click Run Game. This helps performance, since Windows becomes bad at appending files once they exceed about 100MB.
- Wizards taking the Life Burn AA should no longer have it replaced with Allegiant Familiar after it is taken
- Celestial Renewal rank 1 no longer grants access to a free spell - it enhances Celestal Regen like it is supposed to
- Lower Thaz fire boss trash should have proper body types now
