Live patch du 28/03/2018: New Awakening

La première mise à jour de contenu de l'année a été portée sur les serveurs réguliers avec notamment un New Trismus très réussi et très vivant. Le patch ne comportant qu'une grosse Delta et une série de correctifs, les notes de développement sont fatalement assez similaires à celle de la Delta 302:

New Awakening

- All dragons who previously used the red / green default textures now have a unique design. (Excluding Karane and Semeneth)
- All trainers that offer questlines now have a guild tag that reflects their profession. For example, Severant is "Drain Strike Mentor" and Kreig is "Quarrying Mentor".

New Trismus

Content Summary

- Epic Boss and Item Updates!
- The Gnomes of New Rachival are having trouble with wolves in the Dusk Forest
- Mysterious activity in the Eastern Deadlands
- New Decorative Plot Items

Excerpt from the New Rachival Research Institute Quarterly Letters
… Increased volcanic activity on the Island of Fire prompted the Directors of the NRRI to request an updated survey.  Dantor the Scout undertook the bounty and reported that the Fire Elemental known as Surtheim appears to have weakened significantly in strength.  The cause is not known at this time.  The NRRI has put in a request for an investigation.

Dantor also noted that while investigating the crater he found that a landslide has exposed what appears to be a mine entrance.  The entrance was collapsed so he could not investigate it further or discern where it might lead.  The NRRI…

Imperial Scout's Report, June 33 A.R…
Something strange sighted deep in the Eastern Deadlands; an object lay in the middle of a canyon surrounded by numerous grotesque, twisted trees and the minions of the Withered Aegis.  Due to the distance, my fear of discovery and the swirling maelstrom overhead, I could not discern many details.  I did not recognize the creatures, but they appeared to be undead as they walked with a strange gait.  Nor could I make out the nature of the object itself, except that it was as black as night and was nearly as large as those who stood near it … One thing, however, was clear and that was that they were protecting it.  It is certainly worthy of further investigation, though I advise extreme caution.

- "Discover the Secrets of the Burning Archer" is now obtainable once again.
- "Tazoon Region: Attunement to Desert's Edge" now gives proper chat feedback

Plots

- Warehouses are available! These structures have a plot limit of 1, and offer massive bulk storage power. They are being offered at a massive resource reduced cost to an equal number of silos their size replaces. Silos are now best used for quick and cheap storage with a small footprint, while warehouses are meant for massive bulk and in the long run are cheaper than the ‘silo farms' you might see around.
- A standard warehouse grants 9 silos worth of stack and storage at its respective tier. It costs 40% of the resources of 9 silos to build at its tier.
- A large warehouse occupies the space of 16 silos approximately, but offers the bulk and stack of 20 silos at its respective tier. It costs 40% of what it takes to build 16 silos, and offers double the storage power of a standard warehouse.
- A grand warehouse is designed for overly ambitious individuals and guilds to build. This storage behemoth occupies the space of 36 silos, but offers the bulk and stack of 45 T6 silos. It costs 20% as much as the resources listed to build 36 silos at every tier, but offers double the bulk of a T6 large warehouse.
- To avoid devaluing certain structures such as houses and guild houses with their massive stack and bulk power - warehouses generally are only able to hold various kinds of resources and ingredients.
- Large Ice Statue: Adult Dragon has been renamed to Large Ice Statue: Adult Dragon (Facing Left).
- By popular request, there is now a Large Ice Statue: Adult Dragon (Facing Right) that mirrors the original.
- With winter (mostly) over, the ice statues now have versions of themselves made of stone.


Tazoon Region

- The valley near the community of Frostwatch has undergone a transformation and is now known as the Hoarfrost Vale.  Into this new landscape the Cult of Akkinelos has appeared and is spreading poisons and death.
- Earthquakes have shaken the land around New Rachival, causing landslides within the canyons.  Some cliffsides have collapsed, closing some passages and opening others.  Into this changed landscape has come the Cult of Telak, worshippers of the god of technology.
- Spirits and new enemies can now be found along the road between the Tower of Healing and New Rachival.  Old enemies, the Desert Wolves, have fled.
- A new passage has opened creating a quick route between New Rachival and the Granite Hills.  Into this new land, beyond that claimed by the Cult of Telak, a forest has begun to grow and flourish.
- New quests are available for players from New Rachival (level 45) as well as the settlement of Frostwatch (level 50).


Client and Server Fixes

- Allow some monsters to stick to the the terrain
- Player search "tell" button should be a chat button
- Player chats going to the "npc chat" window
