Live Patch du 03/07/12

Ce patch pour les serveurs réguliers couvre le Delta 223 à 226 appliquées sur Blight. Dans les grandes lignes on retrouve l'arrivée de l'événement saisonnier, Pax Istaria, un redimensionnement d'un certain nombre de terrains constructibles, une amléioration des quantités de ressources, certaines abilities de combat ne rentrent plus en conflit, le retour des cristaux de vitesse et bien entendu une multitude d'ajustements et de correctifs divers.

Update Highlights

- PAX Istaria - The return of the ever-popular Summer Festival to Istaria! New quests, titles, and items are available as well as old favorites.
- Plots - More than 200 plots have been removed to make space for the remaining plots to grow. Plots have also been repriced making them far more attainable to entry-level players as well as long-time players.
- Resource Changes - Plants and all tiers of Wisps now have Rich and Motherlode nodes, other quantities such as beef from cattle has been balanced, and many more resource-related changes and tweaks.


- Raised the min/max damage of Shining Blades. Also, Shining Blades now only shares 50% timer with any other epic abilities/spells.
- Malady no longer conflicts with other Blight DoTs, such as Withered State.
- Soul Link, Ethereal Paroxysm, and Ethereal Leech will no longer conflict with Spirit DoTs, such as Stinger.
- Demon Flurry, Ranged Flurry and Melee Flurry are no longer classified as "Hastes" for effect conflicts, but instead as "Flurries". They will only conflict with one another now.
- Corrected the coin value of Flame Arrows, Ice Arrows, Lightning Arrows and Spirit Arrows (II and III were weighted the same as I).
- Flame Arrows no longer use the damagemod_flame keyword and so will no longer conflict with Flame Attack.
- Armor of the Watcher now lasts for 300 seconds and cannot be dispelled.
- Channel Vitae fixed to use the proper drain keyword.

Burning Archer

In order to make the Burning Archer quest more user-friendly as well as available to a wider selection of players we've done a minor revamp of the quest series. We've included some fixes and some changes that we hope will make both the quest and the ability more appealing.

- The Quest "Lore Quest: Legend of the Burning Archer" is now available to anyone from Sindenis in Feladan. Sindenis, as a result, no longer tells the tale as part of his dialog.

- Plots across the world of Istaria have been resized; this required the removal of some unowned plots as well as moving of roads and terrain in some cases, and moving some sand piles/water wells, as well as world decorations in order that the new plots would fit.
- Players are advised to clear their world cache file before traveling to these communities because much of the terrain and objects in the community have been moved.
- In resized communities all plot markers have been moved to the edge of the plot and are facing the right orientation for the plot (so that the marker slants upwards toward the center of the plot.) Should players find any plots where this is not the case, we'd ask that you please report it so that the plot can be looked at.
