Patch Notes - September 2, 2019

Buffs
-------
You can now have up to 17 buffs/debuffs on you at a time! Note that you may need to edit your UI files to properly show this. Note also you will lose your buffs when the patch goes in - the workaround for this was very complicated so you'll just have to rebuff. Sorry about that.

Zones
-------

Lake of Ill Omen

  • Lake Anomalies have a 66% chance to drop one of the eight chest or legs combine armor piece


Items
-------
  • Inscriptions of Anger and Darkness are now quest flagged similar to other bounty augments
  • Inscriptions of Anger and Darkness have some resists and have 5-15 more mana/hp
  • The proc on Fleshcrafter's Cleaver should now work properly
  • Bangle of the Devout's bane should work properly now
  • Combine Supremacy will now target you and your pet
  • Self-spinning lure combine for tinkering now produces 60 instead of 1
  • Added a Hate and -FR PBAoE component to Windworn Boka proc
  • Tide Thresher has a new model, and is now slashing. Increase proc rate by 1% for all classes on the item


Mobs
-------
  • Thenn`ayr`duun has a visible corpse now. This corpse will also be at the ocean floor on death
  • Nemesis adds should despawn after 30 seconds of no combat
  • The Murk vendor associated with certain augs and quests should work more reliably now
  • Caynid Brightwater now offers free throwing items for use in the Hazel the Shrew adept fight
  • Worchag the Hunter's script has been revised. His quest involving Gristle now bears (ha!) a more distinctive name, and Worchag himself should no longer get stuck in an "unhailable" state during the quest


AAs
-------
The following AAs have had their cooldowns reduced:
  • Turn Undead (base is now 1 hour)
  • Gather Mana (base is now 48 minutes)
  • Protection of the Lady (base is now 48 minutes)
  • Lethal Strike (base is now 30 minutes)
  • AE Taunt (base is now 10 minutes)
  • Natural Balance (base times per rank are now 30/15/10/7.5 minutes respectively)

Additionally, Extended Notes was not working properly (in that it was doing, well, nothing). That should now be fixed.

Combat Styles
-------
  • Beastlord Mimic stance stamina cost has been significantly increased
  • Warrior "megataunt" stance endurance cost has been reduced by more than half (CD remains the same)


Misc
-------
  • Soul Abrasion should now show damage correctly
  • It should be all but impossible to have the final dig wave in a tmap have all the same monster sets. While it can still happen, the odds should be extremely low

Happy almost birthday America! Big patch to celebrate!



ZONES

  • Requiem of Hate, a zone that straddles the boundary between dreams and reality, is now available for daring adventurers, especially those who are freshly level 65.

  19 Feb 2019 - taryth


Patch Notes - January 25, 2019

- Tremors have been felt near the Obsidian Shard Mountains as of late, but as yet no one has been able to determine the source

BUGS

- Players who bug out during the loading process and end up in a "GM box" in the following zones will find a helpful NPC nearby who can get them unstuck without the need to petition, gate, suicide, etc.:

-- Erudin

-- Thurgadin B
-- The Valley of Erimal
-- Warpstone Caverns

NPCs
- Forest of the Fallen: Yiv Chieftains can now be rust coded.

Patch Notes - January 1, 2019

Quests:

- It should no longer be unreasonable under some circumstances to complete the spider and cockatrice parts of Gertund's Favor. There was a strange zone-wide lockout under some conditions that could effectively completely eliminate drops - this has been removed, which should make these less painful

AAs:
- Health of Target's Target HP updates should work a lot better now

Tomes:
- The third druid tome is implemented! Called Natural Balance, it evens out the HP of all group members and does a small heal once that's done. To use the AA (which costs 1 point per rank), you must complete the requisite druid tome. Increases in tomes increase the heal, as well as decreasing the cooldown of the AA

Spells:
- Bard movement songs should no longer cause stutter stepping every tick

Zones:
- Zenn Malath now has a faction.

Items:
- Stuck Spear is no longer usable by Monks, who have no piercing skill in the first place. Instead, Paladins are now able to wield the spear.

  01 Jan 2019 - taryth


Patch Notes - December 29, 2018

As we wrap up the year, we thought we'd offer up a new feature: Health of Target's Target (HoTT). The best way to think about this (since it's a healer-only ability) is that you can monitor not only who your healing, but what they are attacking along with its real time health percentage. This should make it a lot easier to manage healing and mechanics associated with more complex fights.

To use this, you will need to do two things:

1. Enable the ability in Leadership AAs. This can be brought up using "L" - create a hotbutton to turn on Group and Raid HoTT. Once you have 3 or more people in the group, this will enable a small HoTT window. Note that all classes can bring up the window, but only healers with the AA will get anything sent to it!

2. Purchase the Class AA (Clerics, Druids and Shamans) for 10 AAs. Now, with your HoTT window open, you should see what your target has as their target! It should change in real time as their target changes, eliminating the need to re-target them, etc.

Aside from this, quite a few other changes:

Mobs / Encounters:
- Hakopta, Queen of Chaos should no longer bug out.
- Two new Tier 13s have been added to Dalaya. The first, a six man in Eastern Badlands, and the second, an eighteen man in Sea of Swords.
-An ikisith shark (Forest of the Fallen) should no longer summon.

Race Changes:
- Froglok racial bonus for melee crit rate racial has been corrected.

Alternate Advancement:
- Healer AA: Health of Target's Target (see above) is now available!
- Magician AA: Elemental Mastery will now allow mage pets to crit spells.

Spells:
- The Circle of Soothing spell scroll now has a sale price with merchants.
- The spell scrolls for Alter Plane: Water and Alter Plane: Fire have had their sale prices adjusted to match the rest of the planar port spells.

Items:
- Stinking Shoes and Foul Gruplok Broth had their "stink" mechanic removed as it was causing problems. We may tweak the items up a bit to compensate at some point.

Miscellaneous:
- Bloodlust will no longer heal based on non-melee (like damage shield) damage taken as this was never meant to be the case
- Bashes will no longer crit
- Paladin heals will now share a cooldown (see last patch; the amount of healing was increased and cooldown decreased to compensate)
- Filters will actually work and persist across zoning now. Hallelujah!

Patch Notes - December 16, 2018 (and a special treat)

We have a Shards first!

Our own Grinkles has created a zone 100% from scratch - Zenn Malath. He created the terrain. He textured it. He set up all the content within. It's a truly unique experience, and make sure to congratulate him when you see him! It's a starter zone, designed for players up to level 15.

As part of this, we are introducing a new class / race combination: frog monks! Make sure to swing by Zenn Malath and see what the disciples of Malath have in store for training. You can find more information at https://shardsofdalaya.com/forum/threads/introducing-zenn-malath-home-of-the-froglok-monks.30868/.

Aside from this, quite a few other patch notes:


Bugs:
- Inge the Voracious now has a loot table that didn't show up before.
- Fixed a crash where if you died with a dot on you the zone would crash.
- Weather effects will display better now.

Features:
We are tinkering with Knights a bit to address some of the issues they face, particularly at higher levels. This is an ongoing process, and while we take on suggestions and such, keep in mind not all of those will make it live. For now however, we are doing the following:

Bash: Increase bash damage for Paladins/Shadow knights. Damage scales off of levels and shield AC. If using a 2hander and bashing, shoulder AC is used instead.

Added a new level 65 paladin spell: Searing Light.

NPCs:
- The beach bum adept has been overhauled to be more player-friendly. When the fight phase is over, players and pets automatically stop attacking him. Players who die mid-fight will be eligible to claim the quest item from him. Any lingering debuffs/items from the fight are automatically removed. Most importantly, he no longer causes zone crashes.
- The Earth Terror is slightly smaller to prevent him from occasionally lodging in the ceiling.

Events:
- The "egg sack" event in Abyss should be a bit less insane now - add damage and hitpoints were tuned down a bit, particularly on harder waves. The fundamentals of the event remain the same.

Spells:
- The Healing Waters spell cast by Celestial Well pets no longer causes players to do the "player takes damage" animation. (thank you to whoever did this by the way!)
- The duration of Divine Rage has been doubled
