Top of Page Colored Ore Spawn Locations – 16th June 2k
Skills :: Trade Menu FYI
In addressing the issues connected to resource spawning and shard crashes we were required to clear the information that tracked the location of colored ore veins. This fix is currently active on Lake Superior, Great Lakes, Yamato, and Izumo. In order to ensure the resource issue does not crash other shards, we will be implementing this fix on all other shards following their next scheduled maintenance. Colored ore will still spawn on the shards, however, the locations for the colors will no longer be the same.

Top of Page Yet Still More Fixes – 22nd June 2k
General Latest Game Update :: Renaissance Related Changes
  • The special attacks for two-handed mace weapons will be reduced to 50% rather than 100% extra. A crushing blow will still be quite effective however. For example, the warhammer will still be capable of doing significant amounts of damage when a crushing blow is achieved (the max will be approximately 60 points, rather than the reported 70 to 80 points).
  • Trapped chests will no longer give murder counts to the tinker who created the chest.
  • Issues with thieves not turning “gray” in town will be resolved.
  • “Criminally flagged” characters will no longer be able to go through a moonstone gate.
  • Falling through floors in the new house designs will be addressed.
  • Slow moving NPCs and monsters will be addressed.
Recall “No Recall for Aggressors”
The “no recall for aggressors” system has been fixed so that:
  • You will not be able to recall while you are a criminal.
  • You will not be able to recall while you are an aggressor to a player.
  • Being an aggressor to a monster or NPC will not stop you from recalling.
  • Attacking a pet of a murderer or criminal will not stop you from recalling as neither of these actions will make you a criminal.
