General[edit | edit source]

  • You can now securely trade with other players through the context menu option “Trade”
  • You can now trade houses with other players by selecting “Transfer Ownership” from the house sign.
  • The world map is no longer available via the ‘M’ key. We feel strongly that “GPS” doesn’t make sense in our world, and having a map you open with a hotkey creates the wrong expectation. We have plans for more navigation tools that do make sense in a sandbox world. See the next note for our first pass:
  • Players can now purchase physical maps of the 5 world areas of Celador in the respective towns / outposts.
  • Players can rename and place waypoints on physical maps
  • Players can no longer mark locations on notes.
  • You can now accept crafting orders from blacksmiths. Make the requested items, add them to the order, and turn them in for a reward. Crafting orders provide a way for any player to earn a living through making weapons and armor.
  • Removed composite material drops that were not being utilized, such as thread, charcoal, and others*.
  • Dynamic camps now have mobs and loot that make sense for the difficulty of the camp
  • Server optimization pass.
  • Server stability fixes.

Combat tweaks[edit | edit source]

  1. Increased the heal amount of Heal
  2. Increased the STR damage modifier from 40% to 100%
  3. Reduced base weapon damages to account for strength mod increase
  4. Removed stamina potions
  5. Affinity now provides the bulk of evocation damage in the absence of staves.
