Release Notes For Update 11: Secrets of the Artificers[edit]

Welcome to the Release Notes for Update 11. These release notes were posted on Monday, September 12th, 2011.

News & Notes[edit]

Of Special Note[edit]

Secrets of the Artificers[edit]

The biggest update of the year brings a new era of magic! Home of the Artificers, House Cannith is a new high level quest hub where magic and mechanics converge. House Cannith includes a new public area, a new Cannith Crafting Hall, a premium adventure pack featuring a new wilderness area, 3 new dungeons, and 2 new high level raids. Born in war, forged in fury, Stormreach faces its most terrible foe yet! Free to VIPs! Guest passes are available now in the DDO Store, and the adventure pack will be available in the DDO Store starting September 15th.

  • Adventure Area: The Cannith Manufactury - In the center of the House Cannith enclave lies the soaring Manufactury – a vast complex that demonstrates the technical mastery of House Cannith. Battle two invading forces as you explore the Manufactury’s offices, workshops, and research facilities.
  • Quest: Schemes of the Enemy - Negotiate with different rebel factions, infiltrate the depths of the Cannith Manufactury, and deal with its devious devices. Plus, field-test one of House Cannith’s new weapons prototypes – as the target.
  • Quest: Blown to Bits - How do you stop powerful invading forces from turning House Cannith’s warehouse full of constructs into his own personal army? Explosives. Lots and lots of explosives.
  • Quest: Power Play - A powerful enemy has disabled the Cannith Crystals that House Cannith’s artificers draw upon. Can you restore arcane power to the Manufactury and defeat the deadly enemy lieutenants?
  • Raid: The Lord of Blades - Eberron’s most powerful warforged has come to Stormreach, looking for one of House Cannith’s oldest secrets. He’s as powerful as a god, filled with rage, in command of an army, and looking for vengeance. What could be worse? You’re about to find out. Twelve-player raid.
  • Raid: The Master Artificer - Once one of House Cannith’s brightest stars, Toven d’Cannith was cast down and disgraced when the Lord of Blades attacked the Manufactury. Now Toven has a simple plan to fix everything – a plan you must halt at all costs. Twelve-player raid.

New Class: Artificers[edit]

Artificers use a mix of magic and technology to augment items and blast foes. Wielding rapid-fire crossbows and magical "rune arms," they have a fighting style unlike any other class. They also can build their own Iron Defender, a customizable pet that aids them in battle. Articers are a blend of Rogue and Arcane classes, and can also play a supporting role as a party healer. For more detail on the Artificer, see the Release Notes below.

NOTE: For a limited time, all Artificers will need to start at level 1, and play through all levels of the class. Players can True Reincarnate into an Artificer if they have the Artificer class unlocked, but players cannot swap non-Artificer levels for Artificer levels using Lesser or Greater Reincarnations, and cannot take Artificer levels from the Veteran Status boat.

General Changes[edit]

Armor Appearance Kits[edit]

  • Dark/Steel Leaf armors that saw their decorations change to the color gold in a previous update have had their steel-colored look returned.

Classes[edit]

  • Artificers are now in DDO as a playable class!
    • Artificers are able to summon Iron Defender minions using a special ability. These minions are similar to hirelings, and enable a UI bar for players to control their pet's actions. The minions are treated as hirelings, but do not take up a party slot. The Iron Defender will level up with the number of Artificer levels of its owner, and gain two action points per Artificer level that can be spent on special Iron Defender enhancements.
    • The death of an Iron Defender is traumatic for the Artificer, causing the Artificer to take 10% of their maximum hit points in damage (but cannot bring the Artificer below 1 hit point), and 10% of an Artificer's maximum spell points.
    • Iron Defenders have Modules that can be equipped from their "inspect" screen. Docents and modules created in Device Workstations can be equipped in module slots.
    • Iron Defenders can be named one time only by players. The ability to rename an Iron Defender is expected to be available in a future update.
  • Artificers are the only class that have the ability to use special Rune Arms to fire blasts of magical energy. These House Cannith creations will equip to the Artificer's off-hand weapon slot, and allow Artificers to use one-handed weapons or crossbows in their main hand.
    • When a Rune Arm is equipped, the "Alt" key is used to fire the Rune Arm. The key is pressed to begin charging the Rune Arm; hitting the key again will fire the weapon. Rune Arms can be charged only a limited amount while moving, but can be powered to become far more powerful when the Artificer is standing still. Charging a Rune Arm does not interrupt or prevent other actions, but may hinder some abilities or speed while a charge is held. A charge-up UI shows what tier of charging the Rune Arm has reached. Rune Arms have a cooldown that is tied to the level of the charge fired.
    • There are several different Rune Arm fire patterns. Many will fire projectiles at a selected hard target, or at the reticle if no target is hard selected, while others fire unguided shots at the reticle or fire blasts of energy in an area in front of the Artificer.
    • Rune Arms have imbue effects that apply to your equipped weapons. For example, Thought Spike, a Tier One Force Shot Rune Arm, adds 1 to 2 points of Force damage to all of the Artificer’s melee or ranged attacks.
  • Artificers can select bonus feats at levels 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20 from the following list: Augment Summoning, Construct Essence, Adamantine Body, Improved Fortification, Mithral Body, Mithral Fluidity, Improved Critical: Ranged, Power Critical: Ranged, Weapon Focus: Ranged, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Shot, Improved Precise Shot, Precise Shot, Shot on the Run, Any Dragonmark of Making, Any Skill Focus, Any Metamagic.
  • Artificer character paths are available for both 28 and 32 point builds.
  • Players whose artificer characters arrive on the airship "Heart of Wind" will get a message explaining that they are not able to take artificer levels using the NPC on the airship. Players who wish to take artificer levels should choose the dialog option to take them to Korthos Island as a level 1 character.

Combat[edit]

  • The mechanics behind crossbow combat have been updated:
    • The "reload" animation has been broken apart from the "fire" animation of crossbows. "Attacking" with an unloaded crossbow will now cause the player to reload the crossbow. When a player fires a loaded crossbow, the crossbow will fire. Clicking the attack button again will reload. This means that it is now possible to fire a crossbow and then start spellcasting without waiting for the crossbow to reload, although the crossbow will need to be reloaded before they can fire again. Crossbows start unloaded when equipped (you don't want to keep a loaded crossbow in your pack, do you?), but you will start an interruptible reload after equipping it.
    • Repeating crossbows, in the hands of a proficient character, now fire three-round bursts (with sufficient ammunition.) One "click" will fire all three shots. This will resolve synchronization issues that sometimes caused repeating crossbows to "lose" shots. It is no longer possible to fire one or two shots with a repeating crossbow without interrupting the attack through other means. Once a Repeating Crossbow attack is interrupted, the crossbow will need to be reloaded before firing again. Repeating Crossbows still function as regular crossbows when wielded by non-proficient characters.
    • Crossbows now have slightly differing reload rates, with Light Crossbows reloading the fastest, and Great Crossbows reloading the slowest. The Rapid Reload feat now significantly increases the reload speed of crossbows.
    • Adjustments have been made to crossbow attack speeds. Base Attack Bonus now plays a larger role in determining crossbow attack speed.

Crafting[edit]

  • The Cannith Crafting Beta is over!
  • Players can now make Cannith Crafting items up to level 150.
  • The amount of delay has been lessened when a crafting device is searching for recipes.
  • Special Runestones are now available exclusively thru crafting using Cannith Crafting devices. These magical stones allow characters to debuff enemy targets. There are three different types of runestones, and they come in four strengths.
  • The drop rate of Greater Essences has been increased.
  • A new crafting recipe is available to reduce the minimum level usage restriction on a crafted item by 2. The recipe is called Masterful Craftsmanship I, and requires a special Bound to Account item that is only available from a House Cannith favor vendor or rare treasure drop. Currently, House Cannith favor can only be acquired by high level characters, but this will change in a future update.
  • Trapmaking no longer requires Soul Gems, and instead requires various crafting essences.
  • The amount of crafting XP required to level has been reduced. Players may see their crafting level automatically increase when they first log in as a result.
  • Several new Trapmaking recipes have been added.
  • New Bound to Account arrows and bolts can now be crafted using the Cannith Bound Crafting devices, including Holy, Acid, Fire, Frost, Shock, and Bane arrows, with an enchantment level of +1 through +5.
  • Crafted Holy handwraps will now correctly bypass good damage reduction on devils, orthons, or other monsters with good DR.
  • Deconstructing low-tier effects from high-end loot will now return more essences.
  • A bug that was driving up the Total Enchantment Level of crafted items with charges has been fixed. This mainly applies to caster damage amplification clickies. These items will now have two less Total Enchantment Value, which means they will have a lower minimum level of 3 or 4.
  • Ghost Touch crafted handwraps now work correctly.
  • Recipes will now properly update their XP return and success rate after crafting.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented crafting vendors from buying equipment.
  • Crafting devices should no longer need to be closed and reopened upon a crafting failure or other error.
  • Several Greater Bane recipes in the Bound Shard Device incorrectly required three Soul Gems. They now require just one.
  • Many regular Bane recipes in the Unbound Shard Device incorrectly required one Soul Gem. They now require a stack of three.
  • Adamantine Ore now stack up to 150, which allows players to craft certain Construct Bane and Greater Bane recipes that had previously not been craftable.
  • +3 Tomes have been removed from the crafting “Trade Essences” barter shop. The crafting vendor NPCs will no longer accept +3 Tomes in exchange for Purified Eberron Dragonshard Fragments.
  • Moving from one page to another in a Cannith Crafting Device recipe list will now snap the scroll bar back to the top of the list.

Guilds[edit]

  • Officers can now usurp a guild after 60 days if there is no successor, or if the successor has been inactive for 60 days.

Hirelings[edit]

  • Rogue hirelings no longer have a drinking problem.
  • Hirelings will no longer improperly attack enemies while in their defensive stance.

Items[edit]

  • Alchemical items are now available! These items can be obtained and upgraded through the new raids in the "Secrets of the Artificers" adventure pack.
  • Scrolls for the spells Black Dragon Bolt, Static Shock, Lightning Motes, and Prismatic Strike have been added to the treasure tables.
  • Dragonscale Armors no longer require special repair shops.
  • The Gianthold armor quests have been removed from the game, and replaced with barter shops.
  • The cost of regular Dragonscale armors have been reduced to 20 scales. The cost of Dragoncrafted, Elfcrafted, and Giantcrafted armors have been reduced to 10 relics.
  • Great Crossbows now knock most opponents over on a vorpal strike (floating targets, bosses, and raid bosses are immune to this effect.)
  • Descriptions have been updated for exotic weapon proficiencies to include the special abilities granted by those weapons when proficient.

The ball explodes on impact, knocking enemies to the ground and dealing 4 to 6 fire damage per two caster levels (a successful Reflex save reduces the fire damage by half and negates the knockdown effect) and 3 to 4 force damage per caster level (no save) to targets in the area. Unlike most other projectile spells, the caster can arc this sphere if they have no target selected.

UI Improvements[edit]

  • Shortcut bars will now remember items placed in them when consumed or deleted, and will display the item with a greyed-out icon. If the item is available in the DDO Store, right-clicking on the greyed-out icon will open the DDO Store page for the item. If a character has several stacks of the same item, and the one in the shortcut bar goes empty, the shortcut bar will be filled with another stack of the same item.
  • The vitals UI for characters and parties has been given a new look. Portrait icons are shown as rendered characters in the vitals UI bar. Options now exist in the UI Settings of the Options menu to show percentages of health remaining, and whether your vitals UI displays in the party vitals list when in a group. Players can toggle the display of their rendered characters in the vitals UI bar, and turn of their personal vitals UI through the UI Settings as well. There is an option to switch the new vitals UI to a minimalist view which hides the portrait, level and character/pet name(s).
  • Goggles can now be made visible on characters by clicking the head toggle switch of their character "doll" in the Inventory UI.
  • Fixed an issue where the bank window would not automatically close when a player walked away from a bank NPC.
  • The "Hide Content I Don't Own" button now functions properly again.

Other changes[edit]

  • Cosmetic armor and helmet choices are now maintained when reincarnating.
  • Shadows will now display properly on computers running DX10 and DX11.
