Default Patch Notes: Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

This patch contains new required files. Download and extract the Project 1999 Files (V30) to your EQ Titanium Directory.

Please welcome our newest Code developer Alecta. Alecta's current focus will be working on improvements to PvP.

  • Alecta: Added an initial LOS check to bolt spells if a target is selected.
  • Alecta: After November 2000 in the server timeline, pets will have their weapons proc as if they were players.
  • Alecta: After NPCs have gated or been gated (via Highsun), they will not forget their guard spot.
  • Alecta: Lifetaps will now heal for the actual damage done, after being mitigated by any runes.
  • Alecta: Attacks on sitting defenders will now hit for your normal maximum hit instead of the theoretical maximum for your damage table.
  • Alecta: Insta-poofing should be a little harder. If you still notice anyone disappearing more quickly than they should, please put a petition in with details.
  • Alecta: [PvP] In PvP, Guards will be more assertive, will notice more detrimental spells, and are more likely to overlook aggression by their friends. Faction up.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Players can now water dance / hop to avoid getting hit by detrimental spells in PvP.
  • Alecta: [PvP] OOR dispelling has once again been disabled.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Spells with a dispel component are now resistible on PvP servers (Highsun, Lava Breath, Frost Breath, etc). Pure dispels (Cancel Magic, Taper Enchantment, Alenia's) continue to be unresistible.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Lifetap over time spells will now properly display on the target's buff bar.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Mitigation disciplines will now reduce incoming PvE and PvP damage.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Mesmerization spells will bypass the level checks when used in PvP. Players will continue to not be mesmerized by their own AoEs if they are above the level cap until we further refine the resist system.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Damage shields no longer do reduced damage in PvP.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Level 50+ rangers will now get the same bonus against non-moving, non-rooted players as they do against NPCs.
  • Alecta: [PvP] A maximum stun duration has been added. The values on this will be revisited in the upcoming resist tuning process.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Pet cast spells will now get the same resist modifications as player cast spells.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Rogue blinds will now last a quarter of their PvE duration, but will have their partials skewed higher.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Lifetaps can heal for the full amount in PvP, but currently do not. This feature will be enabled if anyone can find decent references for it.
  • Alecta: [PvP] The maximum resist chance is now configurable without a patch and has been set to 98%, up from 95%.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Linkdead players who are engaged in PvP combat will no longer poof after 30 seconds.
  • Alecta: [PvP] You can now see your victim's gear when looting their money.
  • Alecta: [PvP] A number of spells have been made unresistible, such as Rapture, the Winged Death line, the Lifetap line, and Splurt.
  • Alecta: [PvP] Root spells now have linear resist functions, and have been broken into 3 tiers with 98% resist caps at 60mr, 90mr, and 125mr.
  • Nilbog: Corrected an issue with the missing combine button on Bearskin Potion Bag.
  • Nilbog: Corrected an issue with an extended zoneline near Karnor's Castle allowing zoning beyond the walls.

  • Nilbog: Aviaks in South Karana drop consistently better loot for their level.

  • Nilbog: Bandit type npcs around the Karanas have all been updated with proper spawn %s and loot drops.
  • Nilbog: Larkin Tolman no longer spawns.
  • Nilbog: Aviak spawns in South Karana are far more varied. Previously, multiple spawn locations would always produce the same level and type.

  • Nilbog: Blacksmithing: Several trivials have increased. Electrum/Gold/Platinum Ornate Chain is no longer craftable. Existing Ornate Chain pieces have been changed to their non-metal enhanced versions. More information here:

Internal note that shouldn't have been there. It was already removed. Nothing changed.
