Defensive Skill Updates

Postby Shevarash » Mon Feb 17, 2003 5:05 am

I will be using this thread to talk about updates to the defensive skill system, so that you don't have to wade through bug reports to find the news. :)

Fixed Bugs:

- Fixed the missing bash message.
- Fixed blocking of psionic skills
- Fixed blocking of all other inappropriate damage - circle, backstab, etc.
- Fixed Paladin/Antis not getting assigned defense skill - petition if you have problems.
- Fixed classes using defensive skills that they do not actually, ahem, have.

Note on Critical Hit Avoidance: Found and identified the bug that's showing crit hits when the hit is defensively avoided. This is a bit of a complicated issue though, may take a few days to sort out. Note that the only real bug here is the fact that you're seeing the false crit message - as crits can be blocked just like any other hit.

Awareness: There were a few problems with the previous fix regarding awareness on backstabbing para'd mobs. All fixed now, and happy to report that Awareness is now no longer active while the target is: sleeping, paralyzed, or mortally wounded.

This extends to all skills that check awareness - backstab, circle, garrotte, etc.

Update: Well, the above is still true, however...it seems that the Awareness modifiers are not working correctly anyhow. Will be fixed ASAP, until then - beware of backstabbing mobs.
