Patch sur Blight du 21/01/2015 (Delta 264)

Dans ce nouveau patch en test, la principale modification est la refonte de l'île de départ: New Trismus. Celle-ci est partiellement détruite dans le cadre d'une nouvelle storyline. D'autres changements très variés sont également au programme:

New Trismus Revamp

- Many structures in New Trismus have been replaced with burned out versions of the structure. Machines have been removed from the town of New Trismus itself, though field machines on the island were left in place.
- The shrine on New Trismus has been moved to an out-of-the-way location on Genevia Island so that those bound to it will still have somewhere to recall back to. The New Trismus Shrine is a burned out structure that can not be bound to (this is part of the storyline.)
- Gaedin, Miry, Sadie, and Ulaven have had their quests for characters level 4 and under marked as Obsolete. The persistent dialog has been updated to send these players back to Spirit Isle to start their adventuring.
- The trainers (Cleric, Mage, Scout, and Warrior) on New Trismus provide quests starting at level 5 through level 10. These quests give consistent rewards and usually call for the same objective at each level.
- Avariatus and Kerian have had their quests updated slightly to reflect the changes to the island.
- Animals, insects, and semi-intelligent mobs from the island have been moved to the southern portion of the island to separate them from the undead/withered aegis mobs.

- The following quests have been updated to reflect the new locations of monsters: The Lone Wolf, Red Tusks, The Withered Bane.
The Trials of the Gifted quest has been moved to Kion along with all the various Assessors. The quest now starts and ends with Town Marshall Krianos. The ability "Title" Emblem of the Gifted" now will provide players with a buff based on the fact that this quest starts at level 10.
- The former Valor and Vigilance quest has been marked as Obsolete. There is a new quest series which has replaced it and tells the story of what has happened to New Trismus. (Players who had done the old quest may still do this new one.)
- Steward Pratt and Rancher Elden have new quests which can be repeated every hour for characters who are between levels 6 and 12 to provide an experience boost.
- Braekhis has quests which focus on the Ruined Homestead region for anyone level 8 and above.

Patch sur Blight du 11/12/2014 (Delta 263)

Après une gestation de plusieurs mois, un nouveau patch est actuellement testé sur Blight. La modification la plus importante est la refonte de l'obtention de l'équipement épique qui mélange récupération de butin, artisanat et quêtes journalières.

Epic Loot

An overhaul of the epic loot system has been completed. This system consists of a more fair and straight-forward way of obtaining and creating Epic items involving tokens, daily quests, and loot for all those involved in the kill. It also attempts to encourage players to battle not just the "big 4", but also the other lesser bosses such as Fafnir, Daknor, etc.

- Bosses are now classified as Greater or Lesser
*Greater include Valkor, Reklar, Shaloth and Son of Gigaroth as well as any Greater Anchors (except for the Delgarath Anchor) that spawn
*Lesser include Fafnir, Daknor, Gruk and Surtheim as well as any Lesser Anchors that spawn
- Epic Items must be constructed using a mixture of Crafted Components and one Looted Component (which is specific to each Bosses items - Blood to Valkor, Demon to SoG, Plague to Reklar and Myloc to Shaloth).
- Crafted Components are created using a mixture of Looted Resources (Ithilium Bars, Velanthis Strips, Taravist Crystals, Annisil Cords, and Dense Leather Bands) and Purchased Resources (Epic Weapon, Armor, Scale, Spell and Exotic Cores)
- Purchased Resources and Component/Item Formulas are purchased from Vargas the Bold at the Eastern Outpost using Epic Tokens
- Daily Quests are available from Vargas the Bold for completion - You can do one for a Greater Boss and one for a Lesser Boss each day. Daily Quests give a significant number of Epic Tokens.
- Epic Tokens (as well as Looted Resources and Components) are acquired from killing Epic Bosses and are given to every person involved in the fight evenly.
- Existing Components (such as those to create Valkor or Demon items) and Epic Item Formulas have been removed and compensation in the form of Epic Cores and Epic Tokens has been awarded. This is meant to compensate players for the loss of these previously valuable items and give you a "leg up" on the new system.
*Master Armor Repair and Master Weapon Repair formulas (for Valkor and Reklar): Each formula will be valued at 24 Epic Tokens.
*Reklar and Valkor Item Components: Each component will be valued at 1 Epic Core (Weapon, Armor, or Scale respective to the type of item) each.
- Looted Resources are acquired from Epic Chests (Small, Medium and Large) that are dropped by the bosses. These are handled the old-fashioned way and will need to be rolled for, though there is a small chance that each person involved in the fight will get a chest.
- New formulas for Epic Items as well as the component refining resources are available from Vargas the Bold as well. The resources (Epic Alchemy Core, Epic Armor Core, etc) cost 24 tokens each, the formulas for refining cost 72 tokens each, and the epic item formulas cost 288 tokens each.


Epic Items

- Reklar's Tower Shield now reduces incoming damage by 25% (up from 5%) and no longer just against undead, but against any monster.
- Reklar's Tail Scale now reduces incoming damage by 25% (up from 5%) and raises Primal by +100 (up from +50). Also removed an odd trigger that was causing incoming damage to be increased by 5% at the same time.
- Reklar's Chaos Chakram no longer applies outgoing damage only to undead and now boosts it by 10% (up from 5%). Raised the chance of life being drained to 25% (up from 5%).
- Reklar's Cursed Cudgel of Power is now known as Reklar's Cudgel of Power and no longer has a curse.
- Valkor's Blood Talon now has a 10% chance (up from 5%) to give Ethereal Leech and now gives the Tier 6 equivalent version.
- Valkor's Bloodsword now has a 10% chance (up from 5%) to give Syphon.
- Bloodthorn Bow now has a 10% chance (up from 5%) to give Ethereal Paroxysm and now gives the Tier 6 equivalent version.
- Bloodthorn Staff now has a 5% chance of hitting the target with Vampiric Bats (24 second duration DoT that will drain life from the target and heal the caster). Also modifies Power and Focus by +50 (up from +30). The staff no longer gives the old buff.


Island of Fire

- Giant Fire Beetle are now known as Kheprit Beetles
- Giant Flame Beetle are now known as Pyrios Beetles
- Lava Oastic are now known as Volcanic Pustules
- Updated techniques, quests, and items that referred to Giant Flame Beetles, Giant Fire Beetles and Lava Oastics to refer to their new names.

- Lowered the Risen Bioscholar's social and aggro range.

- Quake Attack is now a spell-like attack rather than a weapon-focused attack. This means it will benefit from your Nature skill.
- Gold Rage X is now known as Brilliant Rage (it is only used by Selenia the Brilliant)
- Fixed quest "The Angler" so that it does track gathering Mackerel and it has a separate step for returning to Ted (instead of him speaking magically to you from afar)

- Blight Hounds now have far less health.
- Blight Hounds and Frosthounds now have 1/3 less strength than before.
- Inspire Cowardice (used by Abominations of Fear) no longer gives “Dumbfound” as a debuff, but instead gives a debuff called Terrified (a mez instead of a stun).
- Stagnation (used by Abominations of Agony) is now known as Inspire Pain. It no longer gives “Dumbfound” as a debuff, but instead gives a debuff called Agony (a DoT and slow). It also now recycles every 60s (down from 90s).
- Dumbfound (debuff, used by Abominations of Terror) is now known as Dumbfounded, is a flat 6 second stun (varied from 4 to 10 before), and now also reduces Dexterity and Focus. The ability now recycles every 60s (down from 90s).
- Clay Scoop now limits Foraging instead of Preparing and has the skill_use_foraging (instead of skill_use_preparing) keyword.
- Fixed plot in Last Stand so it has the proper terrain type beneath it.
- Changed the trigger point for the quest "Iron Guard: Disturbing Rumors" so that it also has a tighter radius and updated the dialog a bit to make it clearer.

Quests

- An Ornate Chest (opened with a standard key) now spawns in the Lesser Aradoth Deadlands. Players can loot a "ragged book" from it which (when used) begins the "Effigy of Merrasat" quest series with the quest "An Ancient Journal". This quest series was originally written and submitted YEARS ago by Galem Thawn (Seriously, back in 2006). It was adapted two years ago, but placed on hold for the Tier 3 Revamp since the bulk of the series takes place in Tier 3 lands. Note: Only this one quest in the series is in place at this moment.
- Added a new quest "Infected Thorns" to Quartermaster Niiketz at the Eastern Outpost. This quest is available for players who have previously completed the "Deadly Thorns" quests and rewards a new weapon/claw tech kit (Virulent Venom).
- Daily quests from the Island of Ice were missing their secondary experience and coin rewards and so would only give the reward once. This has been fixed so that players will be rewarded for repeating the quest.
- Updated quest "Essence Harvesting Mastery IV: Collect 100 Tainted Pale Essence" to track the gathering of tainted essence.
- Quest "Attunement to Island of Ice Expedition Camp" now properly attunes players to the correct pad.
- The quest "Disgruntled Gnomes" will no longer automatically complete immediately after it started.
- Changed the quest "Rare Foods: Snap Dragon" so that it requires unprocessed Mandrake.
- Quest "Expanding The Date Farm" now points you west instead of north.
- Quest "Rare Foods: Dinner? Impossible!" now requires you to be a level 95 Confectioner to begin it.
- Quest "Kerian's Quest: Learn how to socket a chest scale!" now properly refers to Ectoplasm, not Vapor.
- Quest for the Master Builder now uses "or" constraints so players may have the new Title ability or the old emblem and will be offered the quest.
- Drain Bolt I: Primal Secrets, Fiendish Pride now will give players a copy of the basic Tempest 1 spell.


Server Updates

- Stackable items can now be deconstructed
- Dead Monsters that function as resource nodes will now properly respect varying quantities (this allows Rich and Motherlode versions of dead monster nodes).
- Removed the name and description of items from network messages to optimize network bandwidth.
- Maximum overburdening speed reduction is now 75%
- Improved the feedback message for browse timeout (says trade expired N seconds, instead of browse time)


Town Marshalls

- Town Marshalls in New Trismus, Kion, Sslanis, Dalimond, Chiconis, New Rachival, Mahagra, Kirasanct, Dralk and Aughundell once again have quests that can be repeated once per 24 hour period.
- These quests are offered starting at level 6 and new ones are available every 5 levels there after.
- Quests have no level cap on them and so theoretically can be completed at any level after they're obtained. (NOTE: This is experimental to see how effective that feels. We may cap the levels they're available at some point based on player feedback and testing results.)
- Quests provide special tokens instead of coin as a reward. These tokens can be exchanged with the Town Marshalls for a variety of items. At this time, those items on each Town Marshall is limited, but plans to expand this system are in the works. They also give experience as a reward. (Presently these tokens are called "Tokens of Gratitude". This may just be a placeholder name, but it is what they are called for now.)
- Quests should all require you to kill 20 of a particular mob. Anything less than 20 is a bug and should be reported.
- Steward Pratt in New Trismus has an introductory quest available to anyone who is at least lvl 6 that explains briefly how the quests work.


Town Marshall Rewards

- Replacement Emblems for most current titles are available from the Town Marshall vendors in exchange for Tokens of Gratitude. Emblems are divided by tier, so only T1 emblems are available on the T1 Town Marshalls, for example. Further, you must have completed the quest connected to the particular emblem before it can be used.
- Technique Kits that were quest rewards are also available from the appropriate tier's Town Marshalls. These kits will still require that you have completed the appropriate quest before they can be used.


Tutorials

Many of the Tutorial files have been updated with this patch. A new "Biped Information Center" exists on Spirit Island now. This information center has information unique to biped characters. The "Dragon Information Center" on Skalkaar has been updated to include information unique to Dragons. The Encyclopedia on Floating Island once again works. It includes different information than either the Spirit Island or Skalkaar Information Centers. Many of the Tutorial files can be found by opening the Tutorial window from the "blue gem" Launch Button in game. Skalkaar Island has been updated so that the quests are now part of the various NPC's "Quest Book". This means that the NPC's will show the "I have a quest for you" indicator rather than making players have to wonder. All dragons now begin life right from the start as a level 1 Dragon Adventurer and level 1 Dragon Crafter. Please take note that many of these changes are "works in progress" and will be updated further in future updates. Suggestions for other topics, reports of issues with the files, mistakes in information, etc, can be reported in a special thread on the forums.
