Patch sur Blight du 19/06/2015 (Delta 275) et Live du 23/03/2015

Comme annoncé dans le Developer's Desk de juin, les développeurs de Virtrium vont avant tout se focaliser sur les correctifs. En voici une première bordée tous azimuts qui concerne aussi bien le contenu que la partie technique du jeu:

Edit: le patch a été appliqué sur les Live Shards le 23/06/2015

- Drain Bolt IX and X are no longer stackable. This will prevent issues with techs getting erased, on the spell, when you create or have more than one in inventory. Issues with creating the spells should also be fixed.
- Emblem/Title quests are more relaxed on the requirements. Instead of 'current' adventure school level, it is now 'any' adventure school level constraint check to acquire the quest. This will also prevent quest logs from becoming disabled should you join a lower level school (assuming you have at least one school that meets requirements). This will allow you to kill the mobs at low levels and receive credit, as long as you have at least one adventure school at the correct level.
- Updated / checked techniqued spells to ensure they are not stackable (and so can accept techniques and inscriptions properly)
- Updated / checked techniqued tools to ensure they are not stackable (and so can accept techniques and inscriptions properly)
- Jewelry Tech Kit: Amulet of the Grand Magus is no longer not stackable
- Fix Kenaf descriptions
- Fix Saritova Machines (Saritova Gemcutting Shack, Saritova W Logging Camp, Saritova Ore Refinery) so they can be activated and moved to ground level.
- T4 Gemcutting Shacks (Kirasanct and Morathaven) now requires 75 Obsidian Blocks, instead of 750.
- T5 Stoneworking Shelters (Eastern Outpost and Saritova) now correctly requires Ironsilk Tapestries.
- Added back community building - Aughundell Stoneworking Shelter 251/251 area.
- Memorial Structure: race Cenotaphs requires Masonry skill to apply Granite Blocks, instead of Essence Structuring.
- Winter Wolves on New Koraelia (Gnomekindle event) are now known as Young Winter Wolf.
- Winter Wolf Alphas are no longer able to occasionally spawn Level 20 Young Winter Wolves as followers (adds). They will only spawn Level 26-30 Winter Wolves, the appropriate range.
- Fixed inconsistencies with dialogue on AroP 19 and 20.
- Karane the Historian: Typo in Greet dialogue -  Now says you need to be 15 days old, instead of 30, when starting RoP.
- Fiery Golem Core and Crimson Ravager Hearts are now in regular loot table. Mobs no longer requires Niesa's Draught form to be scribed to drop the loot.
- Crimson Ravager Heart now uses a Heart icon, instead of hide strip icon.
- Fiery Golem Core now has a special icon, instead of animal hide icon.
- Blighted Dim Essence Residue now spawns near blighted 203/222 area.
- Blighted Glowing Essence Residue now spawns near blighted 221/267 area.
- Blighted Bright Essence Residue now spawns near blighted 250/231 area.
- Blighted Pale nodes no longer gives Blighted Glowing Essence as a bonus.
- T2 Gem field near  Summit/Frozen Lakes is no longer linked to spawns near Duskhold.
- Blight Hounds now patrol further away (offroad slightly) in vicinity near the new T6 EDL Community buildings near 284/240. Less likely to agro mobs if you are standing on or near the structures.
- City wall assets have been updated to fix these assets having a previously non-working occlusion model. If you notice a wall segment is now misaligned or behaving oddly, please submit a support ticket with the coordinates of this object.
- Mobs Cast and No Description - abilities used by mobs. Missing/blank entries will now display correctly in combat window (Yellow text).
- Thurid's Stone of Wrath no longer gives 'mob is immune to damage' feedback, when fighting mobs that are not in the Undead category.
- Quests: 'Vandus Confederation: Unease in Tishlar' and 'Vandus Confederation: The Problem with the Cults (Part 1)' has been removed from the appropriate NPCs. These are part of future T3 revamp and the series is currently incomplete. These should not have been available. If you have these quests active, you can delete them.
- (Daily) Nature's Bastion quests now shows the kill counters in quest window. Daily timer set to 22 hours.
- Ulairi, in New Rachival will now give out a treat, while on the Fall Festival - 'Trick or Treat!' quests.
- Fall Festival: 'Trick or Treat!' and 'Trick or Treat for Dragons!' quests are now daily quests. Additionally, the 24 hour played timer has been reduced to 4 hours of real time. This means the quest will automatically complete in 4 hours, not 24. But quest can be repeated every 24 hours. Dialogues have been cleaned up.
- Cleaned up spawns on Abandoned Isle mountain. There are no longer excessive amounts of mobs.

 

Blight du 07 et du 11/10/13 (Delta 248 et 249)

Deux mini patchs ont été publiés sur Blight très rapidement. C'est en général le signe qu'un patch live va bientôt débarquer.

Delta 248:

- Technique "Power Strike" can now be applied to hand wraps.
- Technique "Vital Defiance" now properly uses Pale Orbs, not Dim Orbs.
- Stone of Seeking no longer attunes at all.

 

Developer's Desk: édition été 2012

Le Developer's Desk est une communication qui se présente en deux parties: la première revient sur les derniers changements apportés à Istaria et la deuxième sur ceux à venir. On passera donc sur la première partie pour nous intéresser aux nouveautés qui sont plutôt alléchantes.

La première est la cration d'une nouvelle école d'artisanat pour les Dragons: le Crystalshaper. Les Dragons savent déjà utiliser le cristal pour la construction de leur antres mais cette fois-ci il servira a créer des cristaux accordant des bonus en utilisant des resources classiques ainsi que du butin trouvé sur les monstres en utilisant un système encore obscur d'émotions; il faudra attendre d'en savoir plus!
La deuxième est la refonte des zones Tier III qui en ont fort besoin notamment entre Tazoon et la côte; ils prévoient d'ailleurs le retour d'un vieil ennemi: Nazderon. Celui-ci ne sera certainement pas le centre d'une série d'event comme c'était le cas en 2004 (The Great Sandstorm, The Legend of The Lost City, The Reawakening) mais plus de quêtes persistantes.
La dernière est l'apparition d'un nouvel ennemi (en plus du Withered Aegis ou il en fait partie? On ne sait pas): The Host of Varran dirigées par les Welgers, de vieux monstres repérés dans les fichiers du jeu et restés longtemps dans les tiroirs.
Evidemment, avec la petite équipe de Virtrium il ne faut clairement pas s'attendre à voir tout cela prêt le mois prochain. Il faudra donc être patient, très patient.
Après ce résumé, voici la version longue:

Welcome to Summer 2012! It has been a while since our last Developer's Desk, so I wanted to take a moment to review what we've accomplished and what we plan on doing in the future. So far in 2012, we've released two content updates as well as some significant client upgrades.

Quite a bit of work has been done on the Client. Some long-standing bugs have been fixed, and new features have been added. All in all, the client team has been hard at work over the first part of 2012 and will continue to improve and extend the client in the coming months and years.

Some of the big changes and features to the Client so far have been:
- Object Fading: We had a number of players comment about how objects “pop” into the scene, which obstructed with keeping their view distance far. We introduced an object fade system so that objects and structures fade into the scene instead of popping. Players can now view long distances while objects gently load and unload.
New Slash Commands: The newly implemented commands include “/lasttarget,” which allows players to select the last targeted entity, and “/cyclenearestcorpse,” (or /cnc) which cycles through nearby corpses to loot them. When macroed, these commands simplify targeting greatly.
- Shadows: Istaria has had plain, circular shadows for quite a long time. The latest client introduced real shadows for the player, as well as all world objects. This makes a huge difference in the game’s appearance, and with computers as powerful as they are today, it’s a minimal load for great visual effect.
- Launcher 2: The new version of the launcher has been released and combines a number of character management features into a single interface. Some character management functions previously required a visit to our web site, but these, along with additional information, are now in one easy-to-access place.

The entire team is proud of what has been accomplished, and the new features and performance are definitely great! But what about content, you say? Well, we released an update in March and another at the start of July. While there is too much to discuss in detail, I'll cover some of the key points from both updates:

Lesser Aradoth Revamp: A major update to the entire island that included retouching every spawn in an effort to create a more entertaining and consistent experience. Monster levels now begin at 10 rather than 1 and progress in difficulty from Kion south to Sslanis. In addition, quests on the island were revamped so that you are led in a progression from north to south, from Kion to Parsinia, to Sslanis, and ending at Lower Bridgeview. The intent for this island is that you can now easily raise a character from about level 10 into the low 20’s before moving to the main island.

Plot Mergers and Upgrades: A major and long-awaited update to the plots of the world was completed with the Summer Content Update. Some plots in non-guild communities have been removed, others increased in size, and nearly all of them were repriced. The goal of this update was to make plots more appealing and in-reach of players of all experience levels. Prices tend to be lowest in Tier 1 communities and highest in Tier 6 for both biped plots and dragon lairs.

Festivals: Both the Spring and Summer Festivals were released, which included some new hats (Paper Bag with variations, Wizard’s Hat), new murals for Lairs, fun games and quests including a Maze in the summer update, and a new fire pit for players to gather around and tell stories. The team had spent some time gathering feedback from our players as to what they’d like to see as a summer event, and while not everything could be introduced this year, we garnered some great feedback for future years and were able to incorporate some ideas into this year’s event.

World Improvements: While not as big as the other updates, we addressed issues in many parts of the world, including Scorpion Island, Mithril Canyons, Trandalar (specifically Acul and the Valleys of Repose and the Moon) and other regions. We made improvements to the world appearance, monster and resource spawns, and in some cases, we added quests to the areas.

**************
So, that is what was accomplished over the last seven months. But, what do we hope to accomplish in the next few months? Well, first and foremost, we’ll be bringing back the Fall Festival, along with some new artwork for Masks. And there are many smaller fixes, tweaks, and additions we’ll likely make. But that's not all because we’re also planning two major updates:

The release of the long-awaited and requested Crystalshaper school for Dragons! The new Crystalshaper school will specialize in crafting consumable crystals that will provide new buffs as well as a few “old” buffs, such as Primal Vengeance and Eminence. Crystals will be created using existing resources (Orbs and Azulyte) as well as a new adventurer-gathered resource. Adventurers (both biped and dragon) will be able to purchase abilities that allow them to “Inspire” specific emotions (such as Rage, Peace, Apathy, etc) in their enemies. These emotions will cause specific loot to drop when the monster has been defeated, and those items will be used by Crystalshapers in creating their crystals. Finally, and these requirements are still tentative, joining the school will require you to be an Adult Dragon of at least level 80 Adventurer and level 20 Lairshaper to join. Coinciding with the release of the Crystalshaper school is the introduction of a new mini-dungeon called the “Fiery Rift”! This challenge will be populated with Tier 5 (level 80-90) monsters.

How do we top the first new school for Istaria in more than 6 years? Well, trust us when we say that it is surely difficult! But, we believe that we have the right ideas in place to do just that. In the later part of the year, we’ll be undertaking a revamp of the Tier 3 (levels 40-60) region of Aradoth and, in particular, the lands from Dryart to Tazoon.

Along with a total revamp of the region, which will include updated monsters, new quests, and new NPC locations, we’ll be introducing a storyline revolving around Nazderon and a Cult attempting to bring about his return... again!

The bigger news, we feel, is the introduction of a new enemy, the Host of Varran led by the Welger, who will be making a great impact on Western Aradoth and the residents of Tazoon. How big of an impact? We’ll keep that under wraps for now, but trust us when we say that this may be one of the biggest changes in Istaria in quite a while!

For now, I hope you are all enjoying your time in Istaria! We look forward to hearing your feedback on what we’ve accomplished so far this year and what’s coming in future months.

*T4 Vault is listed as Vault Storage - Medium and when activated has a Vault Keeper and Pawnbroker.
*T6 Vault is listed as Vault Storage - Large and when activated has a Vault Keeper, Pawnbroker and Consignment Merchant.
*In order to complete the construction of these new vaults, a special "Hiring Permit" is required for each of the different NPC's. Hiring Permits from Pawnbrokers across Istaria.


Portal System

- Consolidated Teleport Classes that were redundant with others to create fewer classes. Players should NOT notice a difference in portal costs at this point in the changes. There were just multiple "Free" classes that were consolidated down to one single grouping.
- Teleport Gates and pads are now linked in a more cyclical manner.
- Bristugo contains 5 teleport gates: To destinations on Dalimond Peninsula, Trandalar, Racial Cities (including Tazoon), Settlements and Shepherd's Mountain, and Guilds (including Saritova)
- A new hub has been created in Genevia 5 teleport gates: Scorpion Island, Racial Cities (including Tazoon), Settlements and Shepherd's Mountain, Genevia Towns and Resort Islands including New Trismus, Guild Islands (including Saritova). NOTE: This hub is intended to offer an alternative location for players who need T1 and T2 resources. Additional portals have been added from destinations on Genevia to aid in the transportation of resources from the field back to player communities. Scorpion Island now readily connects to Genevia as well for those transporting T2 resources.
- Settlements (including Shepherd's Mountain) now connect to a new hub in Genevia, to Bristugo, Racial Cities and other Settlements.
Guilds (including Saritova) now connect to a new hub in Genevia, to Bristugo, Racial cities and other Guild communities.
- New Trismus now takes players only to Kion and Genevia. This is by design to aid new players in being able to make their way around the world, but still give experienced players an easy "hub" to reach when traveling back from New Trismus. New Trismus can be reached from Genevia and any other Racial City.


Player Plots

- A new series of decorative tiles has been added for players to change the visual terrain on their plots.
- All tiles should be able to go beneath existing structures (or new ones) but for the upper left corner (when initially placed), as the footprint for the tiles is a small square in the upper left corner.
- All tiles will initially be centered on the center of the plot. The construction model for the tiles will remain in the center of plots (unless the tile is moved of course), but you should be able to add resources to the construction of the tile by standing in the corner of the plot nearest to where the tile's footprint is located. (Please note we are looking in to how to improve this system so that the "visual indicator" that shows the construction model, and the "really need to stand here" are not so separated so players won't be getting the "You are too far away from the structure to do construction." message repeatedly.)
- Tile sizes are: 5x5, 5x10, 5x15, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, 15x15, 20x20, 20x40, 30x30, 40x40. It is more efficient resource wise to use as large a tile as possible when covering your plot rather than using multiple small tiles. These include tiles called: Broken Grass, Cobble, Cobble Deadfall, Cobble Snow, Decorative Square, Fishbone Square, Grass, Ice, Jungle Dirt, Jungle Grass, Grey Slate, Stone, Swamp Mud, Sand, Sandstone, Snow, Tilled Dirt, and Volcanic Stone.
- Tiles with a decorative center only come in 5x5 and 10x10 size. These include: Obsidian, Dragon Center tiles with various backgrounds, Planter Center tiles with various backgrounds.
- New decorative ponds for T1-T4 have been added. The "odd tiers" are simple ponds without flowers, where the "even tiers" have flowers and a bit more in the way of decoration that come with them.

- Revamped the valley north of Old Rachival. It is now known as the Winter Vale and contains a Gnomian Outpost along with numerous world enhancements, resources, monster spawns, a buildable logging camp, as well as a teleport gate and destination pad. NOTE: This area is not yet complete and still lacks NPC dialog and some of the monster spawns. Also, the destination pad cannot yet be attuned to.
