Monster Notes - Hibernia
  • Grounded a 'writhing mass' monster that was roaming through the air.
  • Modified the Galladoria mob Easmarach's path when in panic mode so it should no longer end up below the water.

Quest Notes - General

Item Notes - General

  • All quests concerning artifact activation and encounter credit have been reviewed to ensure that the levels of these quests are consistent with the actual levels of each artifact.

  • Players stuck on step 2 of the Lomira's Brother quest will now be able to find Thevgen to complete the quest.


Instanced Adventuring Notes - General

  • A number of the task dungeons available with the 'long corridors' option have been rebuilt to make them more 'caster-friendly'. This means that the layout will have changed from what some may remember and the monsters will have been moved accordingly to match these new layouts. The dungeon sets for each realm are as follows: Albion - "The Funerary Hall", Midgard - "The Gossamer Grotto", and Hibernia - "The Accursed Caves".

General Notes

  • Fixed a distance discrepency between Crom Cruiach, Utgard-Lok and Azazel. Crom Cruiach has been fixed and now all three can be attacked in melee from the same distance.

Quest Notes - Albion

  • Players who were not receiving quest credit for defending Sergeant Connelly in the Race to Kings Crossing quest should now receive credit appropriately.
  • Players who were not receiving credit for defeating the demonic version of Keeper Anataeus in the Dark Development quest should now receive credit appropriately.

Quest Notes - Midgard

  • Players who were not receiving quest credit for defending Sergeant Malagin in the Race to Hagg Dalur quest should now receive credit appropriately.
  • Players who were not receiving quest credit for defeating the demonic version of Keeper Iraeda in the Dark Development quest should now receive credit appropriately.

General Notes

  • The mini-map for Leirvik has been updated.
  • We have modified the mechanism that moves players from the primary border keeps if they remain in the area for too long. If a player now leaves the general area around the primary border keep, the new mechanism will reset the proper timers. The timers will then restart properly when the player returns to the primary border keep later. This will solve the issue of a player returning to a primary border keep and being moved sooner than expected.
  • Caradawc has finally made the trip to the New Frontiers to join his ravenclan brethren.

General Notes

  • (Classic servers) All Apprentice Taxidermists that accepted Barracuda Remains have been removed.
