Release Notes For Update 9: Harbinger of Madness[edit]

Welcome to the Release Notes for Update 9. These release notes were posted on Wednesday, April 27th 2011.

News & Notes[edit]

Of Special Note[edit]

Update 9 casts a light on a gruesome and twisted neighborhood of Stormreach! The Harbinger of Madness Adventure Pack, for level 15 players, commands you to gather evidence and uncover the sinister mastermind behind the disappearance of the Saltire District townspeople. Crafting also gets an update, with a new user interface that allows you to customize weapon and equipment effects! Plus, there is a plethora of new features including new attack animations, boosted spells, and more Prestige Enhancement lines!

Harbinger of Madness Adventure Pack[edit]

A baffling disappearance of several Saltire locals has been reported! Your job is to track down who or what is responsible and expose the reason for their madness. Your detective work begins in the Stormreach harbor and will force you to come face-to face with danger in uncharted sewers. Then venture to a hidden laboratory where fleshcrafting is the core experiment, and finally, peruse an art gallery where flesh is on display! The Harbinger of Madness Adventure Pack is available for players level 15 and above. Free for VIPs, and available in the DDO on April 29th!

New Crafting Beta[edit]

Get the new crafting feature, currently in Beta! A new user interface now grants you the ability to fully customize the effects of weapons and other items! You can deconstruct an item to make it craftable, or just keep a powerful component. You’ll also be able to use the construction machines to create gear and earn crafting experience as you collect special ingredients and master your recipes!

General Changes[edit]

Armor Appearance Kits[edit]

  • Corrected several issues related to colors not appearing correctly when some armor appearance kit sets are toggled off and on.
  • The description for armor appearance kit previews has been updated to indicate where the preview kits can be used.
  • Armor appearance kits and cosmetic helmets/hats are maintained after reincarnation.

Classes[edit]

  • A new effect has been added to characters that applies itself automatically when a player with the Magical Training feat is low on spell points. This effect, called Echoes of Power, regenerates spell points when a player reaches a low threshold of spell points.
    • Echoes of Power appears when a player drops below 12 sp.
    • The ability regenerates spell points at a rate of 4 sp every 6 seconds.
    • The ability removes itself when a player reaches 12 sp or greater.
    • The ability is not removed on death, but the player will not benefit from it while dead.
    • the ability is suppressed by superior regeneration effects, such as regeneration in a public area or tavern.
  • Rangers and paladins will get more spell points at early levels to allow them to begin casting spells earlier.
    • Paladins and rangers now get 20 sp instead of 5 sp as a base at level 4.

  • The ki costs of higher tiers of monk elemental and void attacks have been reduced to 5 ki each.

Combat[edit]

  • Diplomacy and Bluff now provide feedback messages to let players know when they have succeeded in the skill.
  • DR type will now be displayed with DR in the combat log. Attacker messages now contain DR information.
  • Monsters that have been rendered helpless now take 50% additional damage from most harmful sources instead of being automatically critically hit by physical attacks. This affects all harmful damage except for sneak attack damage and glancing blow damage. Damage is increased before resistances and damage reduction is applied.
    • Players that have been rendered helpless also take additional damage from all harmful sources, except for sneak attack damage and glancing blow damage, instead of being automatically critically hit by physical attacks, but the value varies depending on dungeon difficulty:
      • Solo/Casual: +5% damage
      • Normal: +10% damage
      • Hard: +15% damage
      • Elite: +20% damage
      • Epic: +25% damage

Crafting[edit]

  • Recipes have been added to the Device Workstation that allow a rogue to create +1 through +5 thieves' tools out of mechanical parts and a randomly generated +1 through +5 weapon.

    • Recipes have been added to the Dreamforge that will allow players to turn one of each of the three different essences into the fourth essence type.
  • Restoration recipes have been added for Epic Carnival and Epic Red Fens items. If an item was improved for Update 8, players can now use 3 Epic Dungeon tokens in a Stone of Change, along with the item, to upgrade the item to its improved state (or remove its augment slot, if the item has one.)
  • The Master Transmuter Staff recipe now correctly states that the staff has Superior Potency VI.

DDO Store[edit]

  • The descriptions for guild augment gems that boost saves, hit points, and spell points now accurately reflect that they can be slotted in all items except for weapons.

  • A Planescaller on an airship can now send players directly to Amrath.

Items[edit]

  • New ingredients bags are being introduced along with the new crafting system. To help them fit in better with current ingredients bags, the names of some current ingredient bags have been changed. In addition, some current ingredients bags have had their holding capacities increased.
  • Stacks of items in bags will now display the number of items that are bound to character and bound to account. When removed, bound to character items are removed first, along with a stack of unbound items. If there are no bound to character items, then bound to account items will be removed first, along with a stack of unbound items.
  • Bags which have items that bind to account are now able to be placed in shared banks. They now also say "Bound to Account by contained bound item" in the examination tooltip.
  • Melee death effects on items (and the rogue assassin enhancement) have been redesigned.
    • For targets with more than 1,000 hit points, vorpal no longer kills and instead hits the target for 100 points of bane damage. If a creature has less than 1,000 hit points, the vorpal effect is applied on a confirmed natural 20 as before.
    • Disruption, Banishing, and Smiting weapons have had their hit die caps and saving throws removed. These weapons now do 4d6 damage on a hit, and kill an eligible target on a confirmed vorpal hit (natural 20) if the target is below 1,000 hit points. If the target has more than 1,000 hit points, they will take 100 damage.
      • Weapons with the Greater Disruption effect deal 6d6 additional damage on any hit instead.

      • Banishing Fists will grant the vorpal banishing effect to unarmed attacks, but will not do an additional 4d6 damage.
  • Shields now use a player's full strength bonus on a shield bash, and also use a player's enhancement bonus to-hit and damage.
  • Adamantine shields now correctly bypass adamantine damage reduction when shield bashing. Mithral shields now bypass both silver and mithral damage reduction.
  • Bards, Favored Souls, and Sorcerers will receive two potions that grant them free spell swaps for one in-game hour each.
  • Epic scroll distribution now appears in party chat, rather than general chat.
  • The description text for blue augment crystals now states that they should only be slotted into items with a maximum dexterity bonus.
  • The effective time for some potions can now be added cumulatively if the same kind of potion is used again. This includes Experience Elixirs, Guild Renown Elixirs, and Jewels of Fortune. Additionally, the timer on these potions will be paused when players consume a similar potion with a higher bonus (for example, if a player activates a +10% XP elixir, then consumes a +20% XP elixer, the timer on the +10% elixir will be paused until the +20% elixir expires.)
  • The description for XP Potions now indicate that the potions are self-only.
  • Using non-harmful potions while stealthed will no longer break stealth.
  • Using non-harmful potions will no longer break toggle-able feats, such as combat stances.

  • The Bold Trinket’s +2 Seeker property will now apply to stacking critical damage, in addition to its stacking critical confirmation bonus.
  • The Level 20 Ornamental Dagger is now exclusive. Players who have several of these items in their inventories will find them drained off all charges when equipped (and after resting.) This can be averted if players place the extra daggers into their banks.
  • The Enervation effect on the Dreamspitter and Staff of the Shadow once again occurs on all critical hits.
  • The Greater Poison Guard from the Epic Envenomed Cloak now has the proper DC (28 Fortitude), and deals the proper ability damage on a failed save (2d6 Strength.)

  • The Shocking Blow property from the Charged Gauntlets now stacks with the Stone Prison property from the Stonedust Handwraps when fighting unarmed.
  • The Sorcerer Elemental Savant set bonuses from Tower of Despair items now apply their third tier effects, which are accessible if a character has taken the third tier of an Elemental Savant Prestige Enhancement line. The bonuses will increase the caster level of spells from a player's chosen Savant element by an additional +2.
  • The Righteousness weapon enchantment now turns a weapon "Good" for damage reduction purposes.
  • The Twinblade has returned to the treasure table.
  • The Anthem effect for the Stormsinger Cloak has been fixed.

  • Small Guild Augment Gems of Reaction will now give a bonus to reflex saves versus evocation spells instead of a bonus to reflex saves versus enchantment spells.
  • The "Unhollowed Scarab" was found to have always been quite solid, not to mention very unholy, so it has been renamed the "Unhallowed Scarab" instead.
  • Eternal wands have been upgraded.

  • The sorceress Misty, who used to handle epic trades, is missing from her perch outside of the Tower of The Twelve.

Lahar is also now offering the barter UI for easier shopping.

Skills, Feats, and Abilities[edit]

Skills[edit]

  • Animations have been added to Diplomacy and Intimidate if you are not in the middle of other animations. These animations do not prevent other actions.
  • All three social skills can be used on any creature that possesses any level of intelligence, rather than being restricted to creatures that speak common. Completely unintelligent monsters such as golems, some undead, and vermin, are still immune to social manipulation.
  • The cooldowns for Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate have been increased to 15 seconds.
  • The shared cooldown for Half-Elven Social Graces has been increased to 60 seconds.
  • Bluff
    • The bluff skill is now faster to activate, and grants a short duration reduction in threat generation. Repeated bluffs now increment the DC by 1 instead of 4.
    • The sneak attack vulnerability applied by a successful bluff attempt is no longer removed on damage, and now renders the target vulnerable to sneak attacks for 4 seconds.
  • Diplomacy
    • The diplomacy skill now reduces a player's threat with affected creatures, in addition to the skill's prior behavior. A greater percentage of threat is removed depending on a player's diplomacy score.
  • Intimidate
    • A successful use of the intimidate skill now sets a player's threat with a monster equal to the highest threat opponent, plus a small buffer based on a player's size-modified intimidate skill. The player gains a +50% threat multiplier to all attacks (melee, ranged, and spells) for a short period after successful intimidation. Intimidate now has a 15 second cooldown, but players will no longer automatically lose the monster's aggro after six seconds.
    • When using a shield, intimidate will get a longer lasting and more effective threat multiplier applied.

Feat Changes[edit]

  • Great Cleave will no longer pause a player's attack cycle. Cleave will also now work with glancing blows from two-handed weapons, and exotic weapons like bastard swords and dwarven axes.
  • Improved Shield Bash now grants a 20% chance to make a secondary shield bash while attacking with a melee weapon.
  • Shield Mastery's feat benefit has been changed to, "You are now skilled with the use of a shield, and your physical damage vulnerability is decreased by 10% when using a buckler or small shield, 15% when using a large shield, or 20% when using a tower shield."
  • Improved Shield Mastery's feat has been changed to, "You are exceptionally skilled with the use of a shield, and your physical damage vulnerability is decreased by an additional 5% when using a shield, for a total of 15% when using a buckler or small shield, 20% when using a large shield, or 25% when using a tower shield."
  • Feats that generate spells will now correctly apply a caster's level to them.
  • Karmic Strike's finisher no longer leaves a monk helpless. The effect has been changed to, "Fire-Dark-Fire Finisher - You have learned to strike at the moment your opponent is the most vulnerable - the same moment your opponent strikes you. This attack is guaranteed to produce critical threat if it hits, but costs 20 hit points to perform."
  • Monks can now take the Stunning Fist feat using normal feat slots (instead of being restricted to "special monk feats"), and it can be respecced freely by Fred.
  • Half-elf Rogue Dilettante can now be used as a prerequisite for the Improved Feint feat.
  • Ranger Favored Enemy Feats are now auto-expanded with the rest of the feats in the character panel.

New Feats[edit]

  • Shuriken Expertise
    • Prereqs: Requires one of: Dexterity 13, Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Shuriken, or Half-Elf Dilettante: Monk
    • Benefit: You are skilled with the use of the shuriken, and have a chance to throw an additional shuriken per throw. The percent chance to throw an additional shuriken is equal to your Dexterity.
    • Special: Automatically granted to Drow characters at level one. Monks may select this feat at levels 1, 2, or 6 as a selected martial arts class feat.

Enhancement Changes[edit]

  • Many class-specific spell modifying enhancements have been removed, and replaced with more generic enhancements.

  • Pale Master undead Shrouds now take double damage from light damage effects unless otherwise noted. Additionally, since they are undead, players will crumble to dust if incapacitated rather than "bleed out."
  • The toggles for Pale Master Shrouds no longer appear to be active after being removed by resting.
  • Pale Masters in undead form are now fully immune to death ward and mass death ward.

Spell Balance Enhancements[edit]

To make casters more accessible at lower levels, and to balance the cost of spells based on the amount of damage they deliver, spell point costs have been modified, and a many spells have been made more useful!

    • The majority of this pass focuses on spells that do damage. Here are some general guidelines:
      • Single target damage spells have largely had their spell point cost lowered.
      • Lightning Bolt now features a double strike ability.
      • Fireball-type effects which rely on a reflex save have had their spell point cost lowered slightly.

  • Players can now each have their own version of a single-target damage-over-time spell on a target, but area of effect damage-over-time spells are still shared. For example, two players can each have a copy of Melf's Acid Arrow on a target, and both will cause damage, but if both players cast Acid Fog on a target, only the most powerful of the clouds will take effect.
  • Adjustments have been made to numerous cooldowns:
    • Death effects have had their cooldowns increased. The increased cooldown for single-target death effect spells is not as long as area of effect death effect spells.

    • Major weaken effects start at -2 and increase to -6 by level 20, and last for 12 seconds.
  • The metamagic Extend no longer applies to offensive spells. Reflective damage buffs like Fire Shield can still be Extended.

UI Improvements[edit]

  • An item will now be displayed in whatever tab is open in the chat panel when a player hits Control+Right Click on the item.
  • "Requires one of" type requirements will now be consistently red when not met.
  • Effect icons are now displayed upon examination of players, monsters, NPCs and hirelings, rather than a list of effect descriptions. The examination tooltip now updates dynamically when effects are added or removed from a target, and timers will update in real-time as well. (Note that players can lock an examination window if they wish to keep an eye on something without it being a player's current target via the lock icon in the top left of the examination UI.)
  • Incorrect UI elements some players experienced with the Cauldron of Sora Katra are now fixed.
  • DM text will not show up again once a player has finished a dungeon, until that dungeon is restarted.
  • Search fields have been added to collectible, ingredient, and gem bags.
  • A search field has been added to the Adventures tab of the Adventure Compendium.
  • A search field has been added to the Cookie Jar.
  • The focus orbs for the five abishai cookies have been corrected.
  • A "buy now" button has been added to a personal bank if you have not purchased both bank slots.
  • Visbane's Folly and the Dreamforge now use the "barter" UI which premiered in the Mabar festival reward list.
  • When a bound stack meets an unbound stack in a bag (for example, an item looted from the game, and an item purchased from the DDO Store), the stacks combine to form a bound stack.

Other changes[edit]

  • When clearing a key from your keymap, if you do not remap that key (for example, remove R from autorun and do not assign any other key to R) the key no longer gets re-mapped to its default behavior the next time you log in.
  • The "alias" chat window command should now work as specified in the help text.
  • Fixed a problem that would sometimes cause a map to be rotated when displayed.
  • When a player teleports and is underwater the breath timer will reset. This will help players with slow load times not die when loading into underwater areas.
