    Producer’s note:

    Friends,

    This patch is one of our most ambitious yet – and that’s saying something with a whole new zone and campaign launched just two patches ago! We’ve taken a look at almost every single one of the 45 classes in the game and many of those have received significant updates. If your class is one of the few not in these notes, fret not, we’ll be looking at it closely next patch. We haven’t just stopped at classes either, we’ve delivered a brand new keep–warfare contribution system, siege system overhaul and widespread improvements to crafting as well!

    Many of these ideas were cultivated by you, the community, through your work and feedback on the class and RvR podcasts over the past half year and during our testing phase on Pendragon. We couldn’t be happier with how the notes have turned out. Our team is delighted to bring you an EPIC update to the game – we’ll see you on the battlefield!

    Onward,

    John Thornhil
    Producer
    Dark Age of Camelot


    Realm vs Realm

    Frontier Outpost Reward System

    A new individual contribution system will replace the flat bonuses received for attacking and defending keeps and towers.
    This new individual contribution system will instead tie the bonus RPs to the RPs earned (through kills or rezzes only) by a player within a keep or tower’s area.
    This means attackers and defenders will get bonus RPs when a keep or tower is taken or when a keep or tower is successfully defended.
    Dead defenders will still be rewarded when a keep or tower is taken
    Dead attackers will still be rewarded when a keep or tower is defended
    The defense bonus is triggered when no alive enemy–realm players are left within the immediate region of an under–siege outpost and that outpost’s “flame” icon disappears from the /realmwar map.
    The attack bonus is triggered as soon as an enemy successfully kills the outpost’s lord.
    Bonus RPs will now be earned every time a player (or their group) earns RPs (through kills/rezzes only) within a keep or tower’s region that is currently under siege.
    A keep or tower’s region is defined by the “you enter/leave <outpost name>” messages.
    A keep or tower becomes under siege when it has the “flame” icon on the /realmwar map. Bonus RPs will not be earned until the keep goes under siege.
    The bonus RPs will take into account kills made by the player’s group and will be placed into an individual contribution pool for that player as follows:
    50% of RPs earned through kills/rezzes at a keep will be added to a player’s individual contribution pool
    20% of RPs earned through kills/rezzes at a tower will be added to a player’s individual contribution pool
    For example:
    If Player A earns 1,000 RPs over the course of a keep siege (through kills/rezzes only) they will receive 500 RPs when that keep is taken or successfully defended.
    If Player B earned 10,000 RPs over the course of the same keep siege, they will earn 5,000 RPs.
    If Player C arrives just as the keep is taken or defended and earned 0 RPs within the keep’s immediate region prior to that, they will receive no bonus RPs.
    If Player D earns 1,000 RPs over the course of a tower siege, they will receive 200 bonus RPs when that tower is taken or successfully defended.
    So long as players are within 8000 in–game units of the outpost when it is taken or defended, they will be rewarded.
    Again, contribution is only earned within the immediate outpost region but awarded as long as the player is still within 8000 in–game units.
    Players that leave the 8000 in–game unit radius will have their contribution totals saved for 10 minutes before their accumulated bonus RPs are lost.
    Players will be capped at earning 10x their individual character’s realm–point value.
    This means a player worth 2000 RPs for a solo kill will be able to earn up to 20,000 RPs from this new reward system. In other words, if that player is able to earn more than 40,000 RPs at a keep siege, they will only get 20,000 bonus RPs instead of 50% of the amount over 40,000.
    RP bonus items, spells, and zone/region bonuses will allow players to achieve values over this cap.
    Ruined keeps and towers will not be part of this new reward system.
    Ruined outposts will no longer grant any bonus RPs when taken or defended.

    World Changes

    Combat dummies are now available for target practice in each realm’s Portal Keep courtyard.

    Resource Crates

    Resource crates have been located around each of the Coastal Keeps and are ready to be gathered!
    There are 9 locations at each of the 6 keeps.
    The first 3 locations begin spawning at keep level 3, for a total of 3 locations at a given keep.
    The second 3 locations begin spawning at keep level 6, for a total of 6 locations at a given keep.
    The last 3 locations begin spawning at keep level 9, for a total of 9 locations at a given keep.
    The spawn rates become faster as the keep levels up.
    Each crate has a chance to drop the following items:
    A key for the nearby Keep’s supply chest
    100 duskwood
    Rare Alchemy Components
    Otherworldy Essence
    Otherworldly Ore
    Crates may only be picked up by the realm that controls the keep.

    Crafting

    General

    Crafting timers have been normalized which has resulted in dramatically reduced crafting times.
    There are a few select recipes which have had their crafting timer increased but this is only to keep with the normalization and are very low level recipes.
    Crafting timers are in seconds and are truncated after the first decimal. For example: 4.57 will simply be 4.5 seconds.
    Material Level starts at 1 and goes to 10. Bronze is 1, Iron is 2, etc.
    Any item that can be used for crafting, now has a delve stating that it can be used for crafting.


    Armorcrafting, Fletching, Spellcrafting, Tailoring, Weaponcrafting

    Crafting timer has been normalized for all recipes.
    Timer = 3 + Material Level + ( Recipe Level / 100 )
    The net change is that recipes craft faster than before.
    Fletching Ammo (arrows and bolts, although they are infrequently used) have also had their crafting timers changed.
    Timer = 4 + ( Recipe Level / 200 )
    The net change is that recipes are faster than before.
    This behaves as if all ammo recipes have a Material Level of 1.
    The recipe level has less effect on the increment of the timer.

    Alchemy

    Crafting timer has been normalized for all recipes.
    Timer = 4 + ( Recipe Level / 200 )
    This behaves as if all Alchemy recipes have a Material Level of 1.
    The recipe level has less effect on the increment of the timer.
    The net change is that recipes are faster than before.
    Removed all craftable poisons from Alchemy. All existing poisons will no longer work.
    Removed poisons and items used to craft poisons from merchants.
    Existing poisons in a player’s pack can be sold to any merchant at-cost.

    Siegecraft

    Crafting timer has been normalized for all recipes.
    Timer = 13 + ( Recipe Level / 100 )
    This behaves as if all Siegecraft recipes have a Material Level of 10.
    The recipe level has the same effect on the increment of the timer as normal crafting (such as Armor/weapon, Tailor, or Spellcrafting).
    The Siegecraft list has been re-organized so that players can find the recipe they want much faster.
    Ram deployment recipes are now under the header “Ram Deployment”
    All non-ram deployment recipes are now under the header “Siege Deployment”
    Ammunition recipes are broken out into headers that identify the siege weapon type associated with the ammo
    Apparatus recipes are broken out into headers that identify the siege weapon type associated with the apparatus
    Made crafting siege weapons simpler by removing the need to craft siege parts. Instead, the materials for the siege parts have been rolled into the apparatus recipe.
    Players need only craft the apparatus recipe now before being able to craft to deploy a siege weapon.
    Reduced the number of craftable siege weapons.
    Players will choose between Field or Fortified siege weapons now, the rest of the siege weapons can no longer be crafted.
    NPCs in battlegrounds can still drop the battleground-level appropriate siege weapons.
    “Field” level siege does not require a siege tent and can be deployed anywhere:
    Field War Ram –more hit points, does more damage than Siege Ram, requires 12 players to swing at full speed
    Field Catapult – good vs players (AoE)
    Field Trebuchet – good vs keep walls
    Field Ballista – good vs players (single-target)
    Field Palintone – good vs other siege weapons
    “Fortified” level siege still requires a siege tent:
    Fortified War Ram –more hit points, does more damage than Siege Ram, requires 12 players to swing at full speed, provides riders with 10% damage resistance
    Fortified Catapult – good vs players (AoE)
    Fortified Trebuchet – good vs keep walls
    Fortified Ballista – good vs players (single-target)
    Fortified Palintone – good vs other siege weapons
    “Field” level siege now all give 50 RPs for destroying them.
    “Fortified” level siege now all give 100 RPs for destroying them.
    All siege options have been removed from keep and tower siege hookpoint stores except for field versions (fortified versions were never sold on these stores).
    Reduced the number of craftable siege ammo.
    Specialty siege ammo has been reduced to only 2 choices instead of 3.
    Catapult specialty ammo:
    Stone Shot – high damage, small radius
    Ice Ball – medium damage, snares, large radius
    Trebuchet specialty ammo:
    Lava Stone – high damage, small radius
    Boulder – medium damage, large radius
    Ballista specialty ammo:
    Field Bolt – high damage, small radius, resist debuff
    Serrated Bolt – medium damage, large radius
    Palintone specialty ammo:
    Heavy Bolt – high damage, small radius
    Lethal Bolt – medium damage, large radius, damage-over-time (only affects player targets)
    Specialty siege ammo delves have been updated to include the type of siege weapon used to fire the ammo.
    Specialty ammunition damages have been adjusted as follows for all siege types:
    Ammo with special effects have had their damage adjusted to be 25% higher than the Siege Weapon’s default values
    Ammo with no special effects have had their damage adjusted to be 50% higher than the Siege Weapon’s default values
    Siege damage as a whole has been reduced, both default and special ammunition damage, in order to make sieges last longer and allow more time for defenders to get inside besieged objectives.
    Default siege ammunition damage has been reduced as follows:
    Field Catapult default damage decreased 10%
    Fortified Catapult default damage decreased 25%
    Field Trebuchet default damage decreased 15%
    Fortified Trebuchet default damage decreased 30%
    Field Ballista default damage decreased 5%
    Fortified Ballista default damage decreased 20%
    Field Palintone default damage decreased 10%
    Fortified Palintone default damage decreased 30%
    Fortified War Ram default damage decreased 15%
    Overall, the potential siege damage (using the highest available ammunition) has been adjusted as follows:
    Catapults – 2% less damage potential
    Ballista – 15% more damage potential
    Trebuchets – 15% less damage potential
    Palintones – 15% less damage potential
    Rams – 15% less damage potential
    Removed siege parts from merchants.
    Players that have these can sell them to merchants at cost.
    Due to the extensive culling of recipes in the Siegecraft tradeskill, players now only need 200-250 Siegecraft in order to craft everything in the line.
    Oil damage has been increased.

    User Interface

    Changes

    Borders of spell, ability, and style icons have had their saturation and width increased slightly.
    This should make it easier to distinguish among the different levels (green, blue, yellow, and pink) of abilities on your quickbars and as buffs/debuffs.
    Some spell and style icons have been made less “busy” so that their pictures are more easily discerned.
    Several new spell icons have been added to accommodate and message many of the new abilities found throughout the notes.
    Many of the place-holder spell effects on Pendragon have been replaced with their final effect and icon combinations.
    Several widgets on existing and new spell icons have been corrected and updated.


    Class Balance

    General Changes

    All root and mesmerization spells in all realms have had their damage types changed as follows:
    Albion: Changed to Energy damage type
    Midgard: Changed to Body damage type
    Hibernia: Changed to Spirit damage type
    New, instant–cast resist debuffs have been added (see class–specific sections below) to each realm that debuff their realm’s new CC damage type.
    Champion Level disease spells have had their range reduced from 1500 to 1000.
    All classes can maintain up to 8 pulses at once now.
    Adjustments to individual pulses are in the class–specific sections below.
    All magic resistance debuffs have been increased from 25% to 30% for the middle tier, and from 40% to 50% for the highest tier.
    All list-caster, instant-cast stat debuff spells have had their RUT reduced to 7 seconds, down from 10 seconds. Values and durations remain unchanged.
    Spells with self-targeting restrictions and other unique requirements now display a corresponding error message when attempting to use the spell in fail-cases.
    Anytime, positional, and some reactionary styles have had their damages adjusted.
    Specific style changes are noted in detail within their respective class sections.
    If the damage was increased or decreased to a new tier, the notes will say “the damage was increased from Medium to High”, etc.
    If damage was increased or decreased in behind-the-scenes values but still retained its in-game value of “Low”, “Medium”, “High”, “Very High”, etc. the notes will only say the “the damage was increased/decreased slightly/significantly.”
    All buff shears have had their impact on earning realm points from sheared targets significantly reduced.
    This should result in a more even distribution of realm points between a group that does most of the damage to an enemy player and an out-of-group realm ally who shears the same enemy player.
    Additionally, all buff shear types (dex, con, acuity, etc.) are now worth the same amount of RPs within their given tier (blue, yellow, red).


    Items

    The Cruel Malaise bedazzling melee fumble debuff on several CL15 weapons has been changed to a 10% weapon skill debuff that lasts 20s.


    Battlemaster Master Level

    Grapple now has a 1 minute duration immunity timer when the effect fades.
    New grapple types (outlined in class–specific sections below) have separate immunities from the other grapple types.
    Battlemaster grapple – grappled target is immune to melee damage but can be hit by spell damage.
    New grapple (outlined below) – grappled target is immune to both melee and spell damage.
    The Battlemaster ML styles have had their damage values adjusted as following:
    Essence Flames has had its damage decreased slightly
    Essence Shatter has had its damage decreased slightly


    Spymaster Master Level

    Enduring Poison (ML3) has been changed to a self-buff essence resist buff:
    Essence Armor – 25% essence resist buff – self-target – 20-minute duration
    Essence Flare (ML9, Mez Poison) is now a self-buff that converts your melee damage type to essence damage:
    Essence Blades – 5 min RUT – instant cast – 10 sec duration


    Convoker Master Level


    Convoker ML2 Prescience Node now has a 2s cast time, 5 minute RUT, and 5 minute duration.
    Prescience Node no longer casts via ground-target but instead casts on the caster’s location.


    Stealth Detection

    The minimum stealth distance required to be away from enemies has been removed. Stealth classes can now stealth so long as they are not in combat.

    The introduction of new +detection abilities has changed the overall stealth detection values. As such, we'd like to issue some clarity on how stealth detection will function going forward:
    Please note that the only real change to detection code involves the Shadow Seek buffs in Assassin stealth specialization factoring in +stealth skill over level 50.
    From an overall stealth detection standpoint, the values at which classes can see each other have changed across the board but the rest of the detection code remains the same.
    Assassins at 50 stealth specialization (with Shadow Seek IX) will detect other Assassins with 50 stealth specialization (with Shadow Seek IX) between 325 and 500 in-game units.
    This value can be influenced by the detected assassin’s +stealth skill over level 50.
    In other words, +stealth skill over level 50 will increase the ability for an assassin to hide from all stealthers using a stealth detection bonus like Mastery of Stealth, Shadow Seek, or Track; +stealth skill does not give any bonus to detection.
    A 50+24 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 325 units by other 50 spec assassins using Shadow Seek IX.
    A 50+11 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 425 units by other 50 spec assassins using Shadow Seek IX.
    A 50+0 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 500 units by other 50 spec assassins using Shadow Seek IX.
    Assassins at 50 stealth specialization will detect Archers with composite 50 stealth specialization (and free MOS9) at around 400 in-game units.
    This detection value is not influenced by +stealth skill over level 50 for either party.
    Archers at level 50 (with free MOS9), and composite level 50 stealth specialization will detect other Archers at around 725 in-game units.
    Archers using the level 50 Track ability will detect other Archers at around 1000 in-game units.
    Archers at level 50 (with free MOS9), and composite level 50 stealth specialization will detect Assassins with 50 stealth specialization between 675 and 750 in-game units.
    These values are influenced by the detected Assassins +stealth skill over level 50:
    A 50+24 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 675 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    A 50+11 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 713 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    A 50+0 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 750 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    Archers using the level 50 Archery Track ability will detect Assassins between 950 and 1175 in-game units.
    These values are influenced by the detected Assassins +stealth skill over level 50:
    A 50+24 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 950 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    A 50+11 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 1063 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    A 50+0 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 1175 units by MOS9 archers with 50 composite stealth spec.
    All non-assassin and non-archer classes will detect 50 composite stealth spec stealthers at around 125 in-game units.
    This is the same as on Live currently.
    All non-assassin and non-archer classes will detect assassins with 50 stealth specialization (with Shadow Seek IX) between 90 and 125 in-game units.
    A 50+24 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 90 units by all non-assassin and non-archer classes.
    A 50+11 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 108 units by all non-assassin and non-archer classes.
    A 50+0 stealth specced assassin will be detected at 125 units by all non-assassin and non-archer classes.

    Envenom specialization

    Poisons are no longer items that are applied to equipped weapons but are now offensive proc abilities trained in the Envenom specialization.
    These offensive proc poisons will be instant-cast buffs that have a 100% chance to fire, cannot be resisted, and will always last their full duration.
    These proc buffs can be put up and switched while stealthed and assassins will remain stealthed when casting them.
    When swinging 2 weapons with a poison proc up, players will only land 1 poison; however, when the poison is applied on the target, the poison proc buff will remain on the assassin – allowing them to switch targets and apply the same poison to the new target without having to put up another poison proc buff.
    Poison proc buffs will not interfere with other item-based offensive proc buffs
    Poison procs will not fire when using crossbows or thrown weapons.
    The Thrown Weapon Battlemaster ML ability will still proc poisons.
    The Shadowblade’s new Throw-Weapon styles Decapitate and Tomahawk will still proc the new poisons, but their normal, ranged thrown weapons will not.
    Poisons cannot be reapplied to a target until the previous application has ended or the target purges, unless stated otherwise.
    Poisons cannot be resisted and will always land for their full duration and value on the target.

    General Bug Fixes

    (Client) Fixed an issue where pre-game mouse move events were not processed correctly.
    This should fix the issues caused by the mouse cursor ‘clamping’ to the game client when player’s alt-tabbed or minimized the game during start up and clicked on non-game related windows.
    (Client) Fixed an issue where mouse-look/pan would be sluggish if your mouse cursor was near the edge of the screen.
    (Client) The mouse cursor will no longer hide briefly during zone load screen transitions or on logout.
    This should fix the issue where the mouse cursor would slow down if another window was selected during logout/zone.
    (Client) The functionality for mouselook toggle has changed. When toggled on, and not using the mouse look button, the cursor will stay hidden as it did before. However, now when toggled on, if the mouse look button is used, the toggle will disable automatically allowing for easier targeting.
    All ‘arrogance’ buff/debuffs should now use the correct melee invulnerability/vulnerability values rather than the stat debuff values. An example of this debuff is the Weariness /use from the Frozen Medal of Honor necklace: after this change the Weariness melee vulnerability debuff’s delve has been decreased from 35 to 5 as was originally intended.
    Pets in Midgard should now style correctly. This fixes an issue where they would use styles for weapon lines that were different than the weapon they were wielding.
    The Forceful Zephyr damage hit buffer will no longer be overwritten by other melee/magic ablative buffs.
    The battleground “scout” quests for Molvik and Leirvik towers will now only proceed to the next step when scouting the specific tower of the quest.
    Power regen duration and concentration buffs should no longer overwrite higher level versions of themselves, including songs. Power regen songs will overwrite higher level versions of themselves but not duration or concentration based buffs.
    Disease spells now correctly debuff strength on targets using draughts of supremacy.
    The Heretic focus DD’s pulses now correctly account for +range items in the character’s gear and for nearsight debuffs.
    All armor/jewelry will now properly respect their individual item timers.
    All weapons will now have their individual item timers properly reset upon equip.
    Swapping weapons should no longer cause some abilities to appear usable when they are still on cooldown

    Patch 1.121 is live and we're seeing some amazing response and action out in the frontiers!

    However, there has been an issue with the forced realm ability respecs that were supposed to have been given out with the patch. Without extensive server downtime, there is no way to address this and so we'd like to make you aware of the following and offer a free realm respec stone to all characters:

    A new free realm respec stone (Luminescent Induco Stone) is being given out by Royal Accountants (in Caer Berkstead, Nottmoor Faste, Dun Crimthainn, or in the capital cities) to all characters. Simply say [ready] to the Royal Accountant to receive it!
    Classes that should have received a Realm Ability Respec in 1.121 did not receive one. In order to see the changes made in 1.121 all characters of that class should visit their trainers and perform a /respec realm in order to receive the RA changes.
    Classes that received free realm abilities like Charge, Vanish, or Mastery of Stealth correctly received the new free version. However, the free version overwrote the RA-version without refunding the realm skill points. These classes should also visit their trainer to perform a /respec realm as soon as they can.

    War leider noch nicht allzu viel im RVR unterwegs, aber mein Gefühl, dass es noch tanklastiger geworden ist. Liegt halt auch daran das nun alles gefühlt immer mit charge5 in dich reinrauscht... die paar punkte mehr dmg durch die erhöhten debuffs von den castern werden locker durch die freigewordenen RA-Punkte der Tanks durch vdm etc. ausgeglichen.. und nebenbei noch mehr petproc... nun müssen die tanks nicht mal mehr wirklich waffen switchen...
    Dendamyr - waffellord
    Faulinchen - wurstkabba
    Dendapets - f8bot
    Dendaas - 2boltsWatNu?
    Dendamezz - molvgimp

    sowie Dendamyr-low bm, Denda Hüter, Dendamyrs-ani
    Dendaas-shami, Duce-gb

    denkt immer daran alle zahlen für das spiel also laßt jeden so spielen wie er es möchte

    Da ich überlege mal wieder zu reaktivieren, hab ich mal angefangen mir den Kram durchzulesen. Was mir als erstes und wichtigstes auffiel sind geänderte Cap´s.

    Ist es richtig, dass es nun bis 127 geht?
    Gab es dann auch noch Änderungen bei den ToA Bonis - also den 10% Bladings?

    Das mit den RA Änderungen und so weiter ist schon klar. Bezüglich eines neuen Templates mal so pauschal in den Raum geworfen ... welche Must-Have-Items gibts jetzt so? Vermutlich aus den OW-Questsreihen. Kann man die eigentlich kaufen oder muss sich da durchquesten?

    Das war´s erstmal.

    ToA Boni sind gleich geblieben, OW Items und DF Items wegen den overcaps sind musthave, kann man alles kaufen oder questen. OW 1-9 Raids gibts oft und gehen in der Regel 2-3std...ch10 ist bissel knifflig wenn man Alb spielt.
