Patch 9.3.1

08 October 2017 (19:34) by Gamemaster Knighter

Patch 9.3.1
Raid Events have been disabled until tomorrow for us to fix why not everyone is receiving loot from the bosses.
Raid Event Bags will now drop 2 items, 1 rare (or Very/Extremely Rare), and 1 guaranteed Awakening Experience Wand. This Wand can be turned in for 20,000 experience at the rare goods collector.
Every player who helps in a Raid Event Boss is guaranteed one Raid Boss Bag, the more you contribute (tanking damage, healing or dpsing) the more bags you can earn per Raid Boss (up to 3).
The Raid Event Bosses will now no longer retarget off a tank. This is a simple quick change to allow melee dps vocations to participate without getting eviscerated on a re-target. We will be adding in more ranged and random placement mechanics to make ranged dps + healers be on their toes during boss fights as well.
Ores will now reset after 30 minutes instead of 60.

All paralyzes from creatures have been disabled till we get a chance to go through 458 creatures and modify each of them.
Paralyze durations and %'s have been reworked for the following spells
Perfect Shot (Cooldown Increased to 10 seconds)
Perfect Shot Damage and DOT Damage Increased by 20%
Perfect Shot (awakened) paralyzes at 15% for 1 second.

Berserker Rune - 25% for 2 seconds

Gauss Barrell (awakened) - 20% for 1 second.

Chilling Blast - 30% for 1 second
Druid Rune - 10% for 1 second
Frozen Tundra - 10% for 1 second

Retribution - 30% for 1 second
Shield Slam - 20% for 1 second

Unholy Shackles - 30% for 1 second

Shiv - 15% for 1 second

Kamakazi Punch (awakened) - 30% for 1 second

Sustain Balances

Evocation cooldown reduced from 26 seconds to 24 seconds.
Strong Evocation cooldown reduced from 52 seconds to 45 seconds.

Crimson Vial - Healing increased by 17.5%
Soothing Darkness - Healing increased by 65%

Patch 9.3.0 Paralyze Change

08 October 2017 (02:00) by Gamemaster Knighter

Now Paralyzes will be In-Curable by healing. Paralyzes will now behave much more like in other MMORPG's such as WoW or Guild Wars. Paralyzes will have a short duration and a lower paralyze rate than before. Each spell and creature has it's own paralyze amount. These will be modified and balanced as we see fit.

The Entire Archlight Team has been working exceptionally hard this entire Era to strive for a new level of content delivery. We want to be consistently dropping not only new content for Endgame Players, but also improvements to existing content for current and new players.
This is our massive Patch 9.3.0 Teaser :)

5 Raids Added + 3 Massive New Zones
We have now renamed "Boss Events" to Raids. Dracona's Lair and Abaldar's Mansion are now 2 of 5 different Raids that will occur on Archlight every 3-4 hours. Each Raid has its own world for players to work together to conquer to face the final boss. Final Boss Rooms will require players to be 1500 to enter, as now players will be rewarded for their participation and then have a scaling chance at more rewards. This is to make sure everyone who partakes is rewarded, but the top contributors still have a chance at a better reward. Everyone will receive a reward for participating.

The Ancient Leviathan has been resurrected.
The Old Awakening Boots Quest has been restructured and repurposed. This tactical and puzzle quest now has been made as a end game quest. This quest will require 1500+ to enter, and completion of this quest will give players access to Iceforged Equipment and Weapons.
