General Changes
  • Maximum gold amount allowed in warehouse has been increased
  • Implemented the Glory System.
    • This system rewards players with experience for impressive feats in PvP combat. These include:
    • Rewarded more appropriately if you manage to kill a higher-level player
    • Rewarded for being the very first person to kill someone on a given day
    • Rewarded for killing swathes of enemies without death (kill streak)
    • Rewarded for killing particularly challenging players (players with kill streaks)
    • Each player's first PvP Kill of the day will now grant vastly more PvP experience than a normal kill.
    • PVP experience can now be earned at any level from level 20 onward.
    • PvE experience has been reduced for higher level (60+) characters.
  • The Running skill (Scout, Thief) no longer grants double benefits per skill point.
  • All root powers now cap at power rank 20. Roots now scale in cast time from PR-1 to 20.
  • All player characters have had their base movement speed increased, but movement speed enchantments have been tweaked (see below).
  • Sacrifice & Transfer Cast times have been normalized (lower efficiency ones have lower cast time) and a bug with the powers has been fixed.
  • The passive defense disparity for level difference between players has been removed.
  • Movement now ends the effects of healing, mana, and stamina potions. Cast times for potions have been lowered to compensate.
  • All weapon-based bleed effects now last 20 seconds and tick every 4 seconds.
  • Weapon-based debuffs to attack rating, defense, and movement speed have been reduced to a maximum duration of 10 seconds (at rank 40). There some exceptions such as Blade Master and Blade Weaver weapon powers.
  • Grounding Shot's "Grounded" effect (Bow/Crossbow) now lasts 15 seconds.
  • Gold piles can no longer be deleted.
  • Discipline, Statistic, Blood, and Mastery Runes can only be deleted by players standing in safe zones.
  • Discipline droppers have returned to their classic respawn rate of 4 hours.
  • Discipline droppers are now now announced both 10 minutes before and at the moment of their appearance.
  • Significant changes have been made to Glass Weapons and Elite Armor:
    • Glass Weapons have returned as very rare hotzone drops.
    • Elite Armor drop rates have been doubled (from 10% to 20%).
    • These items can no longer be repaired, but take damage only once every three hours per player.
    • These items take less damage than other weapons and armor.
  • Some Adventure Zones' microzones have been increased in power. Most notably: Tainted Swamp, Vale of Nar Addad, and Grimscairne.
  • The macrozones found on Maelstrom and Oblivion have had their aesthetics and content polished. These zones cater to active, high-level players looking to finish their characters. With the increased difficulty comes increased experience and gold.
  • Using a Scroll of Recall (and similar spells) will now takes 5 seconds longer.
  • Attempting to move, cast a spell, or use a skill will interrupt the recall effect.
  • Item identification is now an instant effect.
  • The Guard Captain has been redesigned:
    • Guards captains are now random drops from mobs and can no longer be purchased from vendors.
    • Guards do not cost maintenance, and they cannot be ranked - they automatically use the rank of the Barracks they are in. Guards take 5,000 gold from the Warehouse each time they die, and the 5,000 gold appears on their corpse which can be looted.
    • Guard Dogs have been re-added and may be placed in Huts. They are a rare drop and there is a cap of 4 per city.
Resource System & Crafting
  • Successfully defending a mine now grants experience to all members of the defending nation within the area around the mine. (There is a cap on the number of players rewarded)
  • Successful taking a mine now grants experience to all members of the claiming nation within the area around the mine. (There is a cap on the number of players rewarded)
  • You may now only set the window of opportunity for claimed mines that reside in territory in which you own a city (henceforth called a "home territory"). Mines not in a home territory will default to the zone's window. Maelstrom and Oblivion mines are not affected by this, and will continue to work as they have in the past.
  • After a Mine's Guard Tower has been bashed down, claiming a mine now causes a guard tower to spawn. This tower starts with low health, but increases slowly during mine's window of opportunity. Therefore, players who arrive earliest will have the largest advantage. Water buckets can not heal mines now, however.
  • Enchantment suffixes which add Health, Stamina and Mana have been considerably improved.
  • Throwing weapons have been put back onto their melee smiths, allowing the Morloch and Dispatch affixes.
  • The "Deadly" prefix is now 35% armor penetration after adjustments to the mechanic.
  • High-end equipment enchantments will now appear more often. However, rolling of all gear may take substantially more time depending on the rank of your forge.
  • The base cost to roll any item has been increased by 5,000 gold.
  • Mithril has been re-purposed: If a city's warehouse contains any unlocked mithril, the next item roll will be instant and use one piece of mithril per item. Mithril can be found only in the expansion zones of Maelstrom and Oblivion.
  • The "of the Windlords" and "of the Zephyr" boot enchantment suffixes have been removed from the game. You may now only roll the +5% enchantment "of the Wind" (base movement speed has been increased by 10% for all players to compensate!)
City & Siege
  • Successfully defending your city will now grant Experience to characters from the defending nation on the city grid as the bane falls.
  • Successfully capturing a city will grant Experience to characters from the attacking nation on the city grid as the tree falls.
  • Open Trees are now fully functional again. Build your own Trainer City or Merchant Town!
  • The Shrine system is now functional again. You may find offerings fighting general monsters or fighting lore-specific monsters. Uniquely named monsters/enemies will now have a high chance of dropping an offering.
  • Training Costs are now functional again.
  • The Friend/KoS list has continued support.
  • Maintenance costs are now functioning again.
  • Basic Guards System has been implemented. Patrol logic has not been implemented yet. Guard Contracts can not be re-deeded, only dismissed. Contracts expire after 10 days.
  • NPC Contracts now lose only 1 Rank instead of all of them after re-deeding.
  • Massive animation overhauls - appropriate weapons now have their appropriate animations. Further, some un-used animations have been added to various weapons. Everything should look more awesome!
Loreplay and "Lore on ARAC"
  • Implemented the Lore on ARAC system:
    • Upon character creation you will see two servers: Vorringia LORE and Vorringia.
    • Choosing the LORE server will NOT put your character onto a different server. It will flag your character permanently as a LORE character, and force the LORE rules on you (Vindication/Saedron)
    • You will then only be able to join or create Lore guilds. Only Lore characters can join Lore guilds.
    • If you belong to a Lore Guild that owns a city, you will receive a bonus to their "boon" effects from Shrines. *This bonus is very small, and will not make up for the downsides of Lore, nor will it change the outcome of an engagement.
    • You can never turn an ARAC character into a LORE character or vice-versa.
Racial Changes
  • Humans are now granted an additional 20 ability points.
  • Dwarves are now automatically granted the Juggernaut rune at no cost, reducing Move Speed by 10% and increasing physical resistance to compensate.
  • Minotaurs have had their chance to Parry reduced by 50%.
  • Centaur base movement has been lowered by 5%.
  • Shades no longer receive the Death Shroud effect upon death. Being killed by a Shade character now applies "Shroud of Ardan" which cannot be removed by Succor or Sanctify the Fallen and lasts 4 minutes.
  • Elves now have +20% to base magic and holy resistances. Elves also receive +20% additional effect from healing.
  • All Irekei characters now have their Movement Speed increased by 10% and their Poison Resist increased by 20%.
  • Nephilim can no longer fly while transformed into a human, but this form now provides increased movement speed and dexterity.
  • Nephilim in their natural form now receive a bonus to health and mana regeneration
  • Vampires are now granted 45 free trains in the Bloodcraft skill.
Class Changes
  • Crippling Blow and Coughing Gas (Thief) now cap out at power rank 20. This imposes a 30 second Recast to Crippling Blow (it's now -21% Defense, -35 Dexterity and Strength)
  • The cast time for Sneak (Rogue) has been increased to a minimum of 2.5 seconds at rank 40.
  • Wizard's Translocation cast time has been increased from 0.3 to 1.0 seconds.
  • All "Blind" effects now dispel and block the use of Detect Hidden.
  • Rogues stamina cost for attacking in flight has been increased.

  • Priest's Tend to the Wounded cast time has been increased by .5 sec.
  • Blessed Healing (Healer) cast time reduced to 0.2 seconds, but the spell now caps at rank 20 and has an 8-second recycle timer.

  • All disciplines which grant focus skills now receive 45 free trains in those focus skills. This affects Blademaster, Blade Weaver, Blood Prophet, Shroudborne, and Sundancer.
  • Reduced the cast time of Vok-Maalra (Thrall) and Strength of the Many (Savant) to 3 seconds.
  • Drannok fortitude now has a 6% total health threshold at max trains.
  • Bloodlust (Drannok) now caps at 10% damage, but stacks with other physical damage effects.
