Game Update Notes: 2/01/2009

Postby Shevarash » Sun Feb 01, 2009 9:26 pm

The following changes were added in the 2/01/2009 game update:

  • Added new ability delay system which can be used for spells or skills.
  • New command: recharge. This displays the recharge status of all current ability delays.
  • Added a new type of scroll that cannot be cast, but can be "read" to gain knowledge of the spell, similar to how quest spells work.
  • Righteous Might: New 9th circle cleric spell, check helpfile for details.
  • Divine Power: New 4th circle cleric spell, check helpfile for details.
  • New toggle: RESCUE-ASSIST. Toggling this on will make your character stay in combat when rescued.
  • Vitality: raised the duration on this spell by 50%.
[*] Fixed bug that was allowing pets to cast spells they shouldn't.

Notes:

Both Divine Power and Righteous might come with delays on how often they can be cast, utilizing the new ability delay system. They are also both not scribable at your guildmaster, but must be collected on readable scrolls. Once you find these scrolls and are of the appropriate class/level, use "read <scroll name here>" to permanently learn the spells. After that point, you may pray the spells at any time. Try looking in a bustling city by the sea for Divine Power, and a realm beyond the skies for Righteous Might.

Existing abilities that have delays assosicated with them - lore, assassinate, etc - have not been moved over to the new system yet, only the new spells. I will move them over after any issues are ironed out.

Also, please note that all of these features (ability delays, readable scrolls, and both spells specifically) are taken from 2.0 and have been introduced as both a preview and a way to test new concepts on the current MUD. All aspects of these changes are open to tweaking, so please don't hesitate to leave feedback in this thread or another.

I just wanted to say that this is the best change I've seen in a long time. If utilized well, it has the potential to really make classes more interactive. Give classes 4-5 skills on cooldowns (recharge) and force them to choose when to use them... it makes triggers much more ineffective.

Edit: I mean short cooldowns for the most part (.5-3min).

Being as they are combat spells, I'm not sure if I understand why we can't cast the new cleric spells in combat.

You should be able to cast them in combat, if you can't that's a bug and it's the first I've heard of it.

Neither of these spells recharges while the player is rented as well.

I'll fix the not in combat casting. They're not intended to recharge while rented at the moment as the recharge code doesn't support that, though I plan on adding it in.

As for general feedback on the spells I've found them most useful when you need a big hp buffer (cring, big areas) and the size is usually enough to get you unbashable when both are up. I still think that the double attack skill (cap at 45) would be a nice constant buff for the class in an offensive capacity outside of spells.

Can't wait to see healing changes.
