Scheduled Maintenance 01-06-20 1pm-2pm

We have been hard at work to realize yet another great patch full of bug fixes and new content. 

We have also been redesigning our physical combat script which has unfortunately appeared to be quite the challenge. The current script has some major flaws that have gone unnoticed for years and as such is the core problem for a lot of balance issues we’ve been facing. We will be redesigning this combat script in the coming weeks and hope you will provide valuable feedback after it has been deployed.

 As such we will not be launching any major combat changes this patch. We have done some minor tweaking here and there to fix some of the current issues you have been facing. 

Change-log:

Gameplay:
– Highpriest is now a level 4 mage. (If you want to be blessed by him you can give him 2000 gold for the full bless amount. Anything less than 400 will upset him).
– Highpriest payment is now based on class level instead of the strength attribute.
– Elemental Fury damage reduced by 20%.
– Ranged damage at 1 tile distance is 50% of normal damage.
– Elemental Fury / Staff of Nagash (not the boost) have received a slight nerf.

– Totems now won’t try to heal (and consequently murder) their Liche masters.

Rule change

Ghosting rules have changed. The rules are now as followed:

Ghosting:
What does “Ghosting” mean? It basically means that placing a stationary character in front or inside a dungeon or other points of interest(only NPC related points of interest) to observe when someone is entering a place such as a dungeon is now illegal.
By doing this you will be able to easily avoid confrontation with other players by abusing a second character as a dummy. Anyone caught doing this will receive punishment. Scouting with a geared character that you actually play with is totally fine.
Examples:
Illegal:
– Standing with a ghost inside a dungeon doing nothing.
Legal:
– You can hide in front of a dungeon entrance. As long as you’re active it’s fine.
– Standing in front of a player house as a ghost or naked character.
– Running around as a ghost inside a dungeon.

In short using your character as a camera is forbidden.
