Patch Notes - 2023 October 28

Post by Kandarin »

Happy Halloween!
Halloween descends upon the Nexus once again! Like last year, the Haunted Mansion and its grounds will be yours to explore. All previous items will be returning, and it seems as though the masquerade spirits of the mansion are slightly less keen to surprise players who search for them. This time, mansion guests will find that the mysterious monarch Cucurbitus Rex has opened the gates to his sprawling haunted maze. In the maze you will find a variety of new locales with cosmetics and keepsakes to collect—even a forgotten monolith filled with ancient tomes and lore. You’ll also find wandering holiday minibosses, each with their own themed set of weapon drops. You might even run into the Pumpkin King himself!

Game Mechanics
  • Repairing/removing power from buildings is no longer a thing you can only do once per tile every day or so on your account. Grind away.
  • Speaking of grinds, a new Minibosses Killed grind has been added with achievement tiers at 125 killed and 250 killed.
  • Grisly Reaping buffed: Taking items from a corpse or graveyard-type tile costs 1 AP instead of 2.
  • Green Thumb and Spontaneous Generation buffed: AP cost is now always 1 (down from "whatever the cost is to harvest wood/leeches, typically 6 or 7"), MP cost now varies from 2-6 instead of 5-15 for common to rare components.
  • New Doom Howler skill: Doomstrike. 60 CP child skill of Ghost Tendrils, a Touch attack dealing 10 base damage. Has a chance to proc a number of effects based on what other Pariah and DH skills/spells you know. Note, not all skills add a possible effect, and only one effect can trigger at a time.
  • Unabated Malice can no longer apply Illuminated as this is a purely Angelic power.
  • Sulphurous Cloak from Boon of Ahg-za-Haru and Boon of Tlacolotl now applies its Supplemental Damage to all attacks, not just close-quarters attacks.
  • Wights and Will-o-Wisps now cure Sorcerer's Might when applicable.
Quality of Life and Interface
  • Doom Howler's Draught of Discretion now also allows conversion to Potions of Planar Protection, for a cost of 3 MP (and a potion).
  • Added a font view to the map.
Major Bugs
  • Resolved NPC and roaming pet strike. Server hamsters now demanding more feed and longer breaks as well.
  • Revenants that reset and retrain into one, while having unlocked their final endgame step before resetting, will once again be able to use it at level 30. (Thanks Wassail!)
  • Fixed MP not regenerating at the AP tick when in the deep negatives. (Thanks Meric!) (and no, we didn't break the Fallen exception to the rule ;-))
  • Hovering characters can once again hit non-flying ones. (Thanks Meric!)
  • Fixed the skill buy and buyback dialog not respecting a "cancel" (it always did the thing anyway).
  • Fixed Archon Words of Power being able to dip you into the deep negatives of MP. (Thanks oath2order!)
Minor Bugs
  • The Boon of Tholaghru effect will no longer bypass Sorcerer's Might and instead reduce the duration of it, as with other sources of healing. (Thanks SkullFace!)
  • Shooting targets now breaks invisibility and will also consume ammo if the Origami Bow hits. (Thanks Leila and SharkyNebula!)
  • Factions can no longer change politics stances towards factions they have raided in the past 48 hours. (There were cases where large factions got little to no renown raiding much smaller ones, which counted as "the recap renown has ticked down fully", which was not the intent)
  • Exploding gremlins will now mention in the logs it was a gremlin that exploded instead of their master.
  • Divine Interdiction can now be deactivated at 0 AP.
