Default Patch Notes: Saturday, November 20th, 2021

The latest patch contains new required files. Download the new Patch Files from the top of the Home page, or the Getting Started Guide.

Zone Experience Modifiers
In a previous update, many pre-Kunark ZEMs were modified. Now that we've had a chance to see the effects, these changes are an attempt at further normalizing experience rates. Specifically, Kunark, Velious and dungeon zones. While some zones are receiving a decrease, most will be receiving an increase. These are subject to change and will be reevaluated if needed.

These mainly seem like great decisions, although i am confused about the decision to nerf Kedge and King Xorbb as these zones are already very infrequently trafficked. Glad i did my hole grind to 60 before the nerf, hehehe... >[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

The updates are appreciated, but... All these notes and no one fixed the one update that truly mattered to all? No fix for the 4 abil slots that poof every time you zone or log?

> although i am confused about the decision to nerf Kedge and King Xorbb as these zones are already very infrequently trafficked

Agreed - great changes n nerfs, but this decision was curious.

Thanks for all your hard work. Did the hot buttons get fixed as well? I don't think I saw it on the notes.
