Patch 1.2.1 notes

Post  Paddy on Fri Apr 17, 2009 7:58 am

Highlights
Keep Upgrade System
Own a Keep? Want to keep it? Want to get more out of it? Then the new Keep Upgrade system is perfect for you! Guilds that own a Keep can now purchase upgrades to bolster their hold's utility and defenses in a variety of ways.



Once a Keep has been claimed, a guild member with sufficient permission can speak to the Guild Keep Agent on the upper level of the Keep to choose what upgrades to purchase. These upgrades require a periodic maintenance fee and some are available in multiple levels. Once purchased, upgrades will take time to be completed. This process can be monitored via the new Keep Upgrade Interface. Upgrades will decay if funds are unavailable to pay their maintenance or if a guild member chooses to stop paying for the upgrade.


Combat Responsiveness Improvements
We are always working to improve the overall responsiveness of our game client and server. With version 1.2.1 players will see some significant improvements including the following:



- Casting times have become more accurate under normal play conditions, and players should no longer see a significant “stretch” or “pause” when casting spells in low or moderate latency situations.



- Accuracy of the spell cast UI has been improved. The display will now show ½ second increments and will no longer “stretch” time to compensate for latency. Instead, players will see a pause after the bar has filled completely if they are in a high-latency environment.



- Continued improvements to animation and visual effects performance have been made. Players will see smoother transitions between animations and significantly less stuck visual effects, especially when chain-casting abilities.


UI Improvements
We are pleased to announce several improvements and enhancements to the game's User Interface!


The Guild Window has received a major facelift and several functional improvements. We have added more information to the Guild Window, such as new news alerts and additional statistics on the profile tab. We have also resolved several interface bugs with the window, such as promoting and demoting through the UI and loss of guild permissions.


The User Settings window has been divided into tabs for convenience and clarity. The Customize Interface window has been folded into the User Interface window under the "Interface" tab. Tooltips have also been added to various elements in the User Settings window in order to explain their function.


RvR Zone Control Rewards
Various improvements have been made to Zone Control Rewards in Tier 4 zones to reward players for zone captures more so than individual Objective and Keep captures. When active zones are captured in Tier 4, all players in the zone are awarded Renown based on their Rank, similar to Tiers 1, 2, and 3..



Battlefield Objectives that are owned by the conquering realm will also buff all of the players in the zone with the same buffs that Sergeants grant players. Lastly, players who have captured a Keep or Battlefield Objective in the zone, which is then captured, will be awarded additional Renown from capturing from capturing these zones.


RvR Quartermaster System
The RvR Quartermaster system is the next step in our ongoing improvements to RvR and City Siege itemization and rewards! This system introduces a more reliable way of earning RvR rewards by allowing players to earn special medallions and crests for participating in all types of RvR and City Siege activities. These medallions and crests can then be exchanged for items by speaking with a RvR Quartermaster in a Capitol City. These Quartermasters may be found either in the Markets or in the Guild Halls and bear the titles Recruit Quartermaster, Scout Quartermaster, Soldier Quartermaster and Officer Quartermaster. This will give players an exciting new alternative to winning PQ rolls in RvR for earning their sets and progressing through the game.


Upgrade Your Assault with Ordnance!
We are pleased to introduce a new resource to RvR that players can trade in for deadly assault upgrades! Scattered throughout the RvR lakes and acquired from killing players, Ordnance is collected and traded in for various items and weapons to use in open-field RvR! Battering rams with more hit points, ballistae that do more damage, and oil immunity potions can all be purchased and used on unsuspecting enemy players!


New Guild Recruitment Options
Guilds can now set up a "profile" for their guild using the “Recruitment” tab in the Guild Window. Settings for type of guild, careers, and ranks being recruited, additionally guild "recruiters" can be set in the “Management” tab. Once your guild recruitment info is filled out, players can search using the same criteria in the "Search" tab to find guilds that fit their individual play-style and needs. Guilds can also be hyper-linked into chat either by shift-left clicking on the "Link Your Guild" link in the “Recruitment” tab, or by shift-left-clicking the guild title in the search results panel. When players click the guild hyper-link, they will receive an individual window identical to the panel in search results. No more chat spamming required. Let the hyper-links fly!


Character Profiles
Introducing the new character profile system, which gives you complete control over the way you play your characters! Each character will now have its own Interface Profile. This will allow customization of addons and UI layout on an individual -character basis. You can also customize multiple profiles per character. For instance, if you want to have a different set of addons for soloing versus open RvR, just open the Profile Management window, create a new profile, and make any changes you wish. You can then swap between those profiles at any time in the Profile Management window.



Profiles can also be copied from character to character, even across servers. Just choose "Import from Profile" when making a new profile, and you will be shown a list of your profiles for all characters you have on all servers.



When you first log in, your first character will automatically map your existing user settings to the new profile. On first login of an alternate character, you will be asked if you would like to start with a default profile or use the profile of an existing character.



Please note that this is only the first iteration of the character profile system. We are working to add new features, including the ability to save keybindings, as part of the profile.


The Battle for the Gates of Ekrund Expands!
The massive Gates of Ekrund are all that stand between the Dwarf-held mines at Ekrund and the greenskin-infested domain of Mount Bloodhorn. The battles fought for control of this ancient structure have been among the most bitter in the Age of Reckoning, and now both sides are calling for additional reinforcements!



Beginning with this update, players Rank 19-24 will be able to join a special 6-on-6 version of the Gates of Ekrund. Also, a new quest has been added to the game to reward players who answer the call to defend (or smash down!) the Gates.



General Changes & Bug Fixes
Fixed an issue that could cause the reported /played time to become inaccurate over time.
Fleeing monsters will now have reduced run speed while fleeing, and will no longer immediately leave combat after fleeing.
If the 'Show Guild Heraldry' option in the Inventory Panel is checked, and the player is wearing a non-standard back item (for example, the Brewmaster Backpack or Heavy Metal event cloak), the back item will be replaced with a default cloak displaying the guild heraldry.
Player mounts and other creatures that are set to hug the ground will now do so everywhere and not just on terrain.
The game client will now prioritize corpses with loot on them over empty corpses. As a result, players will now be able to more easily loot items from piles of corpses.
When changing appearance (such as a Marauder mutating) the cloak Show Guild Heraldry setting will now persist through the appearance change.
Capital Cities
Sigmar's Crypts: Arch Lectors Zakarai and Verrimus will now correctly apply a damage debuff to players when they switch powers.
Fixed an issue that allowed some players to repeatedly do the King encounters during the same city raid. All players will now be limited to only one successful attempt at the King encounter per raid.
City Lord and King bosses are now immune to the snap target component of taunt abilities. They are not immune to the threat generation caused by taunt.
The Renown merchants that offer Tier-based Renown gear similar to the Renown merchants in the warcamps have had their titles adjusted to make it easier for players to identify each Tier of Renown gear.
Players will no longer be required to select an instance when entering a contested city. Instead, players will always be placed in the same instance as their group or warband. New instances will be created by the server as older instances become full.
In order to allow more players the opportunity to participate in city-related RvR, the contested city Scenarios (The Undercroft and the War Quarters) are now only accessible to players in the Rank range of 8-29. All players below Rank 28 will be bolstered to Rank 28 while in the Scenario.
Players who attempt to log into a city that is contested will now spawn at their refugee camp instead of inside the peaceful version of the city.
Upon successful destruction of the door into the city, friendly guards will arrive to support the invading army's foray into the enemy capital!
Combat and Careers
General
Victory Cry: This bonus will now last 60 minutes and persist through death.

Updated the visual effects for the following abilities:

Rending Blade (Chosen)

Thunderous Blow (Marauder)
Fixed a bug that was causing diminishing returns on stats to not calculate correctly. Players will now see less effectiveness when stacking a single stat excessively high. Additionally stats that have hit the “soft cap” for diminishing returns will now be displayed in gold on the character sheet, making it easier for players to see when they have hit the “soft cap”.
Rapidly activating abilities will no longer occasionally cause the build-time bar to become out of sync.
To reduce excessive error messages and improve the feel of combat, error messages about abilities "not being ready yet" will no longer be displayed while within the global cooldown.
Fixed numerous cases of bonuses which would not be correctly reflected on your character sheet.
Items with range-increasing bonuses will now correctly display the amount of the bonus in feet.
Combat log messages will now inform the player what ability has disabled them.
Fixed a bug that was preventing buff icons below the first row from displaying their tooltips.

Interacting with an object while your weapons are sheathed will no longer cause your weapons to disappear.

Scattered throughout the RvR lakes and acquired from killing players, Ordnance is collected and traded in for various items and weapons to use in open-field RvR! Battering rams with more hit points, ballistae that do more damage, and oil immunity potions can all be purchased and used on unsuspecting enemy players! These items include the following:

Rams that have double the Hit-points of standard Rams
Ballistae that do twice the amount of standard Ballista damage
Self-only Oil Immunity potions that last 30, 60, or 90 seconds
Scenario Updates
We have made the following scoring changes to RvR Scenarios:

Battle for Praag : Increased the points per kill to 3, and increased the points per kill by 1 for the realm that owns Central Praag.
Caledor Woods: Increased the points per kill to 5. Siege weapons have been installed to prevent spawn camping.
Doomfist Crater: Increased the points per kill by 1, and increased the Center capture points over time by 1.
Gromril Crossing: Increased the points per kill to 3, and increased the points per kill by 1 for realm that owns the Bridge.
High Pass Cemetery: Increased the player kills to 2 points, and each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm.
Khaine’s Embrace: Increased player kills to 5 points, and each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm. Interacting with the Scions also now gives 2 points.
Logrin’s Forge: Each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm.
Thunder Valley: Decreased points over time on the satellite capture points to 4 points every 10 seconds.
Miscellaneous RvR Changes
Players that are occupying a Keep of the opposite realm when a Tier 4 campaign resets will now be teleported back to their warcamp.
Characters of Ranks 19-24 will now be able to queue for a new 6-vs.-6 version of the Scenario 'Gates of Ekrund' from any Tier 3 zone.
Players in a locked Tier 4 pairing will now be able to queue for any available Scenarios from the other pairings. Previously, players would need to journey to an unlocked pairing to join available Scenarios.
We have made several changes to the Zone Control Detail Bar. The first is a textual mode which will display the current zone control pool totals as a percentage instead of a progress bar. To change modes, right-click the Zone Detail window and make your selection. The second change is that we have added additional information to the tooltips for each pool which displays how much that pool contributes to overall Zone Control. Lastly, the position of the Zone Control Detail Bar in the UI can now be changed.
Players who accept a Rally Call when dead will now be resurrected upon arriving at the warcamp.
Renown, Influence, and Experience rewards for capturing Keeps and Battlefield Objectives have been reduced by 35%; however, once a zone is captured, players who participated in taking a Keep and/or Battlefield Objective, and who are still in the pairing, will be rewarded double the Renown, Influence, and Experience received from the initial objective capture. So, confront your enemies and capture those zones! Furthermore, we’ve also added additional Renown rewards for all players in the Tier 4 zone when it becomes captured.
Warcamp tooltips now display a list of service NPCs who are spawned at the camp.
Pairing maps and zone maps now include a tooltip which displays the recommended Rank range of the zone.
Keep doors will now always be attackable by the opposite realm after the Keep has changed hands. Additionally, defenders will now be able to see the health of the Keep door at all times.
A bug has been fixed which was preventing the wind indicator from displaying on certain siege weapons.
Players operating a Ram will now be immune to Knockback and receive reduced damage from Oil Siege Weapons.
Siege Rams will now do twice the damage as they previously did.
Keep doors will now have double the hit points they previously had.
We have significantly increased the hit points of Ram Siege Pads.
User Interface
General Changes and Bug Fixes
Fixed an issue that caused players to lose guild permissions after zoning.
Fixed an issue that caused certain players to be unable to be promoted or demoted via the guild window UI.
Guild members with proper permissions will now be able to talk in Alliance chat.
Pre-game splash screens and opening cinematic can now be skipped by hitting the ESC key.
The Respawn Counter window will no longer continue to count down after resurrection. And dead players everywhere shouted out in silent merriment!
New group members will no longer appear dead in the party or warband UI.
Fixed an issue where characters were not being shown as in their guild after being booted to the character select screen.
Pets can now be targeted via the standard party UI.
“Target Nearest Enemy” will no longer target dead players or objects, and instead opt for a live opponent.
Keep doors and other attackable objects will now display their health.
After guild creation, a group will still be able to use their right-click context-sensitive menu.
Buff icons will now behave correctly, have the correct tooltip information, and never remain after hiding the party UI.
The group loot window, after having expired, will no longer appear as expired on all future loot windows.
Warcamps and Chapters now display all services they contain in a single tooltip on the zone map regardless of player location.
The minimap has had some simple tweaking—the Scenario and Rally Call buttons are larger, and the filter and map icons have moved to the bottom of the minimap. This will fix some of the overlap that was appearing in that area.
Guild leaders or members with appropriate permissions can now designate members to serve as guild recruiters. To do so, right-click on a member's name in the Roster window and select "Assign Recruiter." The recruiter icon will show in the "special" column of the guild window.
Removed the “Edit” and “Delete” buttons from shared Alliance events.
Players will only open the PQ Loot window when clicking on the PQ Tracker itself, not in the invisible space around it.
Morale bars will now update in the party UI. Players will now see their party member’s morale in increments at which it may be fired at. As such players will see when their party members morale levels reach 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%.
Fixed various text inconsistencies in the guild reward tooltips.
Party UI will no longer disappear when reloading the UI at 1152 x 864 resolution.
Color pickers in the Heraldry editor were swapped incorrectly. They will now reference the correct section of Heraldry.
Event tooltips and guild news no longer allow line breaks or paragraph breaks in the body of their text.
Guild Profile information can now be deleted and cleared.
Standard posts in the guild window will now display the correct realm's posts.
Fixed a minor issue where some letters of very long words were not displaying in edit boxes.
Guild Window Improvements
The Guild Window has received a major facelift and several functional improvements. We have added more information to the Guild Window, such as new news alerts and additional statistics on the profile tab. We have also resolved several interface bugs with the window, including issues promoting and demoting through the UI and loss of guild permissions. Details of the changes are as follows:

Profile Tab
Added more guild statistics to the profile page including Keep name and upkeep cost, and personal Renown and tithes contributed.
Fixed layout issues with the daily message and “about us” text entry windows.
Removed the website and e-mail text entry, since most people were adding them to the “about us” window.
Added more guild news types like better messaging for current guild news, and fixed filters and layout.
Added guild heraldry to the profile tab.
Calendar Tab
The Calendar functionality remains mostly the same, but support for displaying specific times for events, as well as a cleaner flow to the process of creating events, has been added.
Rewards Tab
The Rewards list has been folded into the heraldry and Tactic editor section. The rewards table has been reformatted to not only be correct, but to make the layout and delivery of the rewards more clear.
Fixed the layout, interaction, and display of various items in the heraldry and Tactic sections.
Roster Tab
The Roster tab is now finally the informative section we always wanted it to be. All guild members are listed in single rows, all information, including rank, career, etc. can now be used to sort the list. The special category now lists standard bearers, recruiters, and group or warband status for each guild member. Member and Officer notes are now in the tooltip for each member and no longer require a toggle to be viewed.
Alliance Tab
The Alliance tab now shows more information about alliance officers and ranks, as well as alliance guild heraldry.
Manage Tab
Fixed various issues with titles sometimes not being editable. The layout of the window remains mostly the same, but various display and formatting issues have been fixed. The guild tax and personal tithe rates can also be set from this window.
Recruit Tab
This is the entirely new guild recruiting system. It is subdivided into two tabs.
The Advertise tab is for setting up information about your guild. The Search tab is for searching for matching information about other guilds. Just about everything you could want to set about your guild can be done in the advertise tab: interests, ranks needed, careers needed, looking to form an alliance, etc.
The Search tab allows players or guilds to be very broad or very specific when searching for guilds. The most useful aspect of the search tab, especially for off-peak-time players, is the ability to set search requirements and to sort by current players online in the guild, to ensure that a guild is active when you are.
