What artifact loot bonus? Bard loot bonus has no effect on artifact drop rate as far as I can tell. It does increase the stats of drops slightly.

I mean the random artifacts that have +loot bonus. Pretty sure I saw some in the artifact thread. I didn't mean to infer that there was a +artifact finding bonus.

a) non humans start at 125% cap and can use versatility to spend 38 levels at versatility to get to 200% cap
b) humans start at 150% and can use versatility to get 200% cap - so humans get a head start and only req spend exactly 25 levels to get to 200% - humans get 13 more levels to spend on stats


Since people in the game can't use basic logic to figure that race skill caps generally work the same on REG and PD so I'll say it now.

THE ABOVE APPLIES TO PD ALSO!

Time will tell but I'm 80% sure have found & fixed the lag spike. Dunno if it all the lag but I have found A big lag spike. (actually I have done quote a few optimizations in last month)

Spike caused by ToLs unloading, which was sending 100s (maybe 1000s) of "forget named/custom monster" packets to everyone about it ... ToLs because it has a lot of custom mobs with custom weapons - and when they get deleted a packet gets sent. I suspected this about a week ago, so lumped the 100s of packets into one and compressed them, but with extra logging and chat monitoring I saw simultaneously ToLs unload, send a fuktun of data and then everyone complain abt it (so my big compressed packet didn't help). This has been made worse by ppl farming Herb: by not running around ToLs properly and killing everything .... by not killing everything slowly this massive bunch of data gets sent when the map unloads (because all these mobs are still alive). That's ok - keep farming herb for time being - it's not your fault, it's the engine's.

Turns out I didn't need to send those packets anyway - so they are no longer being sent. So hopefully lag fixed.

There is no guarantee there won't be lag in future. But this is a definite lag spike removed. I've been watching network usage & cpu usage for weeks now, following players around, watching ppl play and not finding anything obviously wrong, when playing normally. I suspected Tols (since it's huge and has many custom scripts), so watched people play ToLs, but didn't see anything wrong. But the lag happens when ToLs unloaded.

ps: the server lockup that happened twice this week ...
I think it was combo of my big compressed packet (described above) and maybe Titan dying - not sure exactly, I haven't interrogated LC about it - but those changes are mostly undone and the lockups only happened since the unloading compression was added. if locks up again like that I'll start asking questions

What a bummer, sorry that the map caused any inconveniences. So the issue is fixed and I can proceed working on Carnival Carnage and do not have to worry about this?

sure. The issue was strictly engine, not map+d12 !

ToLs just pushes the engine to its limits ... and I'm really amused to have found a huge optimization that had to be made.

Dunno, but its odd to see my pure classes that didn't remort have 125%. It's cool to have some room to multi.

euo / moa 1.3.35

* fixed multi bards' auras stacking and not unstacking
* mobs like shadowlords no longer immune to magic damage (10k mr rule no longer applies to magic dmg)
* bong quest complete
* mr cleave and normal cleave now stack (so can reduce mr to 25%)
* unarmed can now perform Wallop
* flav grav: dmg increased to 5d5 + level/3 (was 5d5+level/4)
* VYR gives +15 to Attack strength rather than setting it to 30
* casting VF when polymorphed with VYR does +50% more dmg
* hp formula is now based on str/2.8+lvl*2.5 (was str/2+lvl*1.5) - ie, less str depeendant, more lvl (or all stats in NG case) dependant. ppl with less str have more hp. ppl with hi str unaffected
* hp gain from bone now has diminishing returns, ie the more you wear the less effective it is.
WAS: hpgain=hp*0.1*pieces (for 100% in necro)
NOW: hpgain=hp*0.1*pieces*(1-(pieces-1)*0.055) (for 100% in necro)
* deleted tint wand merchant

Cool couple of updates. In fact I think a lot of changes like the changes to VYR could do a lot of good for the game.

I did sit on 80% of my coins tho. Are those ever gonna be useful again or are they just collectors now?

I won't speculate on coins... tho I believe when I added in the 2015 pvp tourney tint merch I said "just spend them"
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5191&p=88522&hilit=coin#p88522

and for the 15th birthday, 1 yr ago, again I said "spend" but also noted the merch wasn't going anywhere so there wasn't a rush to spend them
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5377&p=93462&hilit=coin#p93462

so I have some sympathy but not that much.

I won't say whether dia coins will be either available or spendable again. I will say I have "no plans for them"

Maybe the best thing to do is re-instate the 15th bday merch and the tint merch and delete them in a month?

Since the update, the server seems to disconnect/kick me out regularly. Bug?

Is the bone thing a nerf or a boon? Was it originally a mistake? Kind of curious on why the change there.
