    Post Age of Conan Patch Notes - 26 June, 2008

    Player Character

    Archetype

    • The bonus magical damage granted from Mystical Attunement has been doubled for Mages.
    • Spells that were incorrectly receiving bonuses from increased magical damage will no longer scale with increased magical damage. This adjustment will only affect such spells that were not meant to have scaling with the increased magical damage bonus. This resolves issues with enhancement spells like "Pact with Set" where the health loss was too high for the trade off for the bonus to damage.

    Barbarians
    • An issue where Barbarians lose strength between the levels of 42 and 45 has been resolved. Please note that this is only between those specific levels.

    Demonologist
    • Infernal Knowledge and Diabolic Insight will no longer appear as hostile spells and will still persist after death.

    Necromancer
    • The bonus gained from magical damage has been increased on all damage-over-time (DoT) spells.
    • Despoil the Soul duration has been substantially increased and is no longer removed on death.
    • Frost Blast's area-of-effect (AoE) has been changed to be a 90 degree cone in front of the caster.
    • Shatter now additionally works on targets affected by Frost Blast and Ice Shackle.
    • Dark Knowledge and Vile Insight will no longer appear as hostile spells and will still persist after death.
    • Mark of the Devourer duration has been reduced to 60 seconds.

    Ranger
    • Raid-level bows and crossbows for Rangers have been corrected to add ranged DPS instead of melee DPS.

    Combat
    • Active blocking has been revamped to bring it back in line with the original design. Active blocking will now correctly display a buff in the debuff GUI to indicate the effect. You will now have an initial stamina cost upon activation and shielding bonus rather than evade chance. Attacks and heals performed while in ?Active Blocking? will also have a reduced effect.
    • Certain group buffs should no longer keep you in combat when your pets are also in the group.
    • Melee pets will now do splash damage.

    Items
    • Bags that were not able to be equipped can now be equipped again.-
    • The two-handed edged weapon Earthwrack has now received its visual appearance back.
    • Exaltate's Girdle, Exaltate's Armbands, and Hellbreaker Hammer will now appear correctly.
    • Javelins have been revamped based on player feedback. The length of all current javelins will now be of decent length. All javelins have also received some adjustments to the throwing and holding animations, as well adjusted so all characters correctly hold the javelin by the shaft.
    • Polearms have been revamped based on player feedback. All polearms have been standardized to a new larger size.

    NPC
    • Solo monsters, minibosses and bosses have been adjusted to be more of a challenge than what they had been previously for level 70 and up. The adjustments will not affect grouped and raid monsters in any way as this will only affect solo monsters. The change will ensure that the game is both entertaining and challenging at higher levels.
    • All players in a raid dungeon are now hated by the boss while the boss is under attack.
    • There should no longer be multiple versions of Aquilus in the Armsmans Tavern.
    • Champion of the Honorguard will now use his axe throw ability less frequently.
    • The adds for Vistrix and Yakhmars have had their AI revamped.

    Massive PvP
    • Battlekeep owners should now be able to apply to attack other battlekeeps without any problems.

    Mounts
    • You should now once again be able cast spells while mounted. There will be some limitations on which spells and which type of spells you're able to cast.

    Playfield
    • Raid playfields should now properly reset correctly.

    The Black Castle
    • This Kopshef Province dungeon has been completely redone. We encourage you to pay it a visit. Overcome the challenging new encounters along side with your companions and reap the rewards. This group instance is aimed for characters in the 30 - 35 level range.

    Quest
    • Kidnapping and Torture: You can no longer interact with the palisades while the NPC is burning. This should help make it clearer when the quest can be completed.
    • Ante Up - Giants Approaching: When the timer expires you should be able to interact with the Rock to restart the event.
    • Master of Gargoyles: Cha will now thank you for completing the quest.
    • Bowls of Set: The quest should now properly display the goal names.
    • The Honoured Dead of Cimmeria: This quest has been removed and revamped into 4 smaller quests with new rewards. The new quests are "The Honoured Dead I," "The Honoured Dead II," "The Honoured Dead III," and "The Honoured Dead IV."

    Tradeskills
    • Opening Alchemy Tradeskill book should no longer crash the client.
    • All vendor-supplied tradeskill resources have had their max stack size set to 20, with the exception of city-building components from vendors which have the max stack size of 100
    • Mages and Priest mobs will now drop an Alchemists Cache randomly, which contains random resources for the level-range where it was found. This will make it possible to obtain the resources that have not been dropping for alchemy.
    • All crafted shields will now have gem slots.

    General
    • You may now limit particles to show on (All / Raid Members / Team Members / Self).
    • Particle effects and banners for PvP building have been optimized.
    • The client should now disconnect from the chat server after camping.
    • Cimmerian and male Stygian dancers beware - dancing near the edges of tall cliffs may be fatal to your health.
    • Characters will no longer slide when jumping and then moving as you're landing.

    Re: Age of Conan Patch Notes - 26 June, 2008

    Greetings,

    Downtime has been extended due to a problem that was discovered on the EU servers. We are currently investigating the issue on the EU server before bringing the US servers fully online.

    Thank you,

    Greetings,

    The recent change with the "Alchemist Cache" has been deactivated as it was the main issue with the extended downtime. The bug with this item has already been nailed down and a fix is on the way for the coming update.

    The servers are still on track and we will be sure to keep you updated on any further delays.

    Thank you,

    Greetings,

    We will be extending the downtime by 30 minutes to give the operations team more room to safely deploy the update. The current ETA is now 18:30 GMT / 2:30pm EDT.

    Thank you,

    Greetings,

    We will be extending the downtime by 2 hours to give the operations team more time to deploy the update. The operations team has found some inconsistencies with the game servers and will need some more time to resolve those inconsistencies per server. We are looking to come up within the hour but we want to be safe and ensure that enough time is given. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused and we thank you for your patience on this issue.

    The current ETA is now 20:30 GMT / 4:30pm EDT.

    Thanks,

    Re: Age of Conan Patch Notes - 26 June, 2008

    Greetings,

    Some have already seen the announcements on the EU server with the current downtime and emergency update. That same emergency update will need to be applied to the US servers to resolve the server instability issue that we currently face with the all servers. We were aiming to do everything we can to avoid extending the downtime anymore than what we have already done today for the US servers. Unfortunately we have to extend the current downtime to 24:00 GMT / 8pm EDT.

    During the downtime, we will be applying the fix to resolve a server instability. Like all downtimes we do, we must give any new update at least 5 hours of time to apply the update and bring the servers online. In some cases we are able to do this in 3 hours of actual downtime. We will be aiming to get the servers updated as soon as we can and hopefully bring up the servers sooner than expected.

    Again, we apologize sincerely for any inconvenience that this may have caused and we thank you for your patience as we resolve this issue.

    Thank you,
