Changelog 14th May 2016

Post#1 » Sat May 14, 2016 9:25 pm


Due to several broken RvR mechanics, the following items have been wiped:
- All Annihilator chest pieces, shoulders, and helmets have been wiped.
- All Officer Medallions have been halved.
- Seals of Destruction and Retribution have been wiped.


- All warcamps should now be located outside of the RvR lakes.

-World map will now show fight intensity for each zone. (Small swords, medium swords, and major swords, depending on size of battle).

[Realm vs. Realm]

- All available siege weaponry should work, and should be deployable within range of a keep.
- Rams should be spawnable at more keeps.
- The health of keep doors in Tier 3 and Tier 4 has been increased. Defenders should now have ample time to reach a besieged keep. Using siege weaponry to take down doors faster is highly recommended.
- Keep defenses will now require slightly fewer slain attackers in order to tick.
- Keep sieges will now require a minimum number of slain defenders in order to spawn a gold chest.
- Officer's Medallions will no longer be awarded from locking a zone in Tier 4.
- The drop rate for medallions in PvP has doubled.
- Annihilator and Mercenary gloves and boots should now drop from slain enemy players.

-Fixed issues with picking up salvage.

-Salvage will award 35 points per drop at warcamp.

- Caledor Woods has returned, taking the place of High Pass Cemetery.

[Public Quests]

- Adjusted the loot bag generation system:
+ Easy PvE PQs will now drop a minimum of 2 white and 2 green bags. They have a chance of dropping a blue bag.
+ Normal PvE PQs will now drop a minimum of 1 white, 3 green, and 1 blue bag. They have a chance of dropping an additional blue bag, and a small chance of dropping a purple or gold bag (but not both).
+ Hard PvE PQs will now drop a minimum of 3 Green, 2 Blue, and 1 Gold bag. They have a chance of dropping an additional Gold bag, and a chance of dropping a purple bag.
+ All chances above are modified to some degree based on the number of participating players.

+ Keep PQs will now drop a minimum of 1 Gold, 1 Blue, 1 Green and 1 White bag. They have a chance of dropping a purple bag.
+ For every 6 players of the appropriate faction present, an additional bag will be generated of a random rarity.
+ If the number of bags awarded is less than half the number of players present, to a maximum of 12, white bags will be generated until the number of bags awarded is 12.

Thank you very much for your work, good patch. Although the wipe will certainly result in more whining it was beyond obvious that a wipe was going to happen. Can't wait to test the new PQ contribution

Do you intend to wipe mercenary gear too ?

Not complaining or so, we all knew we should expect wipes.
