Update Notes February 12 2019

Hail, Adventurers!  Love is in the air this mid-February, and so is our continued love for you!  Feast your eyes on today’s update notes and may your hearts be content as you update your clients in preparation!

New stuff

  • Enmity overhaul. Details available here  (lots of math, lots of details).
    • adjustments to enmity values for certain spells and abilities
    • mobs jump around less overall from player to player.
  • Mob melee additional effect overhaul. Effects modified on, and added to, many mobs to make them more retail-accurate.
  • Mob job special ability (2hr) overhaul. Many NMs were given their 2hr, or had it updated. New system supports mobs with multiple 2hrs, repeated-use 2hr, and lots more.
  • Transport timer overhaul. Should make certain elevators and bridges more reliable.
  • Added glitter animation to excavation points.
  • The /salute emote now varies by nation.
  • Portable healing (ethers, potions, elixirs, etc.) removed from auction house dupe system.
  • Automaton attachments that were not balanced for 75-cap combat have been removed. We will revisit these as new content is released (assault, etc.).
  • Castle Oztroja [S] is open for business.
  • Added Pirate encounters to ferries. Not fully implemented, but Sand Charm can now be acquired.

Quest related

  • Implemented quests “Fly High” and “Over the Hills and Far Away”

Zantetsuken Quest

  • Implemented NM Zantetsuken reward system.
    • This is not the full-fledged custom NM system we do still plan to implement in future updates, but it is a new way for players to earn Zan points.
    • Zan will be rewarded for killing timer/lottery NMs that drop uncommon AH-able loot. Higher level NMs will reward more than lower level ones. Lottery NMs will reward more than timer NMs.
    • We hope this will incentivize players to hunt NMs not commonly targeted, which will keep the AH stocked with some of the lower-level rare gear that’s often missing on the AH.
    • Note that there is a -very- long cooldown on these rewards, so maximize your Zan by killing a variety of NMs. Farming the same one daily won’t work at all.
