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

We will be doing a bit of maintenance on the server and apply our latest patch that brings a lot of changes, as with all changes they are expected to cause issues. We have tested it as much as possible but additional fine-tuning is to be expected. Don’t hesitate to supply us with your detailed suggestions and feedback.

– Added Color Wars system again. Needs more testing to see if it works properly now. Prizes will be vanity tokens.
– Rewritten the combat system. Code has been optimized but will need to be fine-tuned.

– Reduced Mage Hunter ability to detect hidden.
– Fixed a bug where you could stable NPC’s that were controlled with the Control Undead spell.
– Legendary Hunter physical protection has been reduced from LVL 6 to 5.

– Added Omega Tokens to loottable.
– Fixed Earth Blessing stacking with Nagash’s Staff of Sorcery boost.
– Added Fireworks to Provisioner.
– Writing Desk now opens a container.

– Warrior for Hire heart no longer gives a target cursor. Drag and drop the Heart on a High Priest to resurrect him. It can only be done 3 times.
– Added Rebirth Potion (Check alchemist book for ingredients). It allows you to res your own pets, a player or remove a resurrection counter from a Warrior For Hire heart.

– Deadly Sure Strike Shurikens now has a cooldown timer that shows how much time until it can be used again.
– Increased loot chance on finding Resurrect and Eartquake scrolls. (lesser bosses also have a chance to drop these).
– Removed all Assassin weapons again. These weren’t meant to be in the game in this form.

– Lowered the requirements for the Protections gump to 120 (boss) and 130 (superboss) when using Evaluating Intelligence.
– Totems now inherit stats from their master.
– You now will not cause any damage nor activate spell casting weapons that are not class weapons (I.E. Bows for mages).
– Elemental Fury damage has been reduced by 20%.

– You now will not cause any damage nor activate spell casting weapons that are not class weapons (I.E. Bows for mages).

– You now will not cause any damage nor activate spell casting weapons that are not class weapons (I.E. Bows for mages).
– Song of Fright has been disabled due to causing tons of debug logging. (It’s the reason why the shard has been lagging). Logfile was almost 100 GB.

– Unstitching kit has been added to the tailor NPC. This will only work on newly crafted leather items. It will break down the material and give back some hides (similar to smelting).
– Reduced the crafting time by 2 seconds for Spec crafters with Carpentry, Bowcraft/Fletching, Blacksmithing and Tinkering.

Combat was bugged. There was an issue where Armor(AR) would only be calculated if you were wearing an armor piece with a “cast on hit” modifier on it.
This severe bug has been in the scripts since ZHP/ZHFantasia(POL095).
This lead us to completely debug the combat system (to find out what else is broken) and we came to the conclusion that it needed a complete rewrite.
Both Wintermute and myself have spent a great deal of time redesigning it from scratch.
This means that it’s now at a point where we feel that it’s ready for you guys to try it out. As with all new things there’s always a chance that things don’t work out the way they should.
Feel free to report any issues and we will sort them out if need be. We hope you will enjoy the new combat system as it makes it a bit more challenging and hopefully more rewarding.

So, what has changed in the new combat system?
– Made DEX and STR influence ranged damage, the latter counts twice as much since DEX already increases attack speed.
– Made STR influence melee damage.
– Thieves get skill bonus for ranged and Fencing weapons.
– Redesigned the Parry system where you will not automatically Parry (it was a 100% chance before).
– Because AR is now working on bosses they will be a bit tougher as well. Therefore loot has been slightly increased.
– Some creatures with ranged attack had their DEX reduced to account for the higher attack speed.

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. 


– 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).

Rule change

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

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.
– Standing with a ghost inside a dungeon doing nothing.
– 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.
