Additions
  • VvV War Steeds have been added.
    • War Ostards and War Horses are delivered as a pet statuette. Using the pet statuette will create a bonded pet to the user.
    • War steeds cannot be traded, and when released will disappear.
    • War steeds must be fed “Essence of Courage” to keep up their battle readiness. (250 silver) A newly claimed war steed has 8 battle readiness, it loses 1 battle readiness when killed, and there is a decay rate of 1 readiness every 24 hours, feeding essence of courage restores 1 battle readiness, 20 units of readiness is the maximum possible.
    • If a war steed loses all of its battle readiness it will disappear.
    • War steeds can be resurrected by their owners using a bandage, this does not need veterinary or animal lore skill.

Bug Fixes
  • There is now a forced 5 second delay between posting messages in global chat.
  • Trade Order Crates should now accept "like type" items. (Wooden Bowl of Peas and Pewter Bowl of Peas, as an example)
  • Bone Breaker now correctly makes sure Tactics >= 60. Before it had to be > or 60.1
  • Gargoyles can once again correctly equip Arcane Robes.
  • Insane Drayds should now be working correctly.

Changes
  • Spell timers have been combined on the backend. This should reduce some latency when lots of spell casters are in one area at the same time. (Champ spawns and large field fights)
    • This new code is considered experimental and must be tested out here, in a production environment, before it can be released to the rest of ServUO.
    • If you notice any blatant issues please report them to us right away.
  • Town NPC price changes.
    • Prices on most NPC items have not changed in over 20 years. When originally introduced things like bags of sending did not exist, you had no beetle mount to store gold, and it took much longer to take down monsters. The ability to deposit gold in a safe place has increased 20 fold over this time.
    • As the shard grows and the total amount of gold on the server increases you will see slight changes in some NPC item prices that we have consciously done to keep up on our gold sinks. We will not announce ahead of time what items are being considered for a price change.
      • An example of a few recent NPC price changes
        • Commodity Deeds now cost 25gp per, up from 5gp per.
        • Dyes now cost 500gp per, up from 8gp per.
        • Dye Tubs now cost 1,500gp per, up from 8gp per.
        • Hair Dye now costs 2,750gp per, up from 37gp per.
  • Exploring The Deep quest monsters will no longer drop loot, besides their respected quest item.

Bug Fixes
  • Increased insane dryads' chance to use their special disrobe ability.
  • Orange targets in the arena will now take damage from all AOE, even if normally from the same guild.

  • Feeding pets the apples in the Orchard will still force a Treefellow to spawn.
  • Saying "I Renounce Virtue" at the Chaos Shrine will now correctly remove the new shrine battle titles.
  • Fixed an issue where certain addons could incorrectly be placed inside house walls.
  • Robe of the Equinox is now correctly elves only.
  • Fixed the hit calculation logic for bola balls.
  • Added proper hit/miss chances for exploding tar potion, based on alchemy, enhance pots and resist spells, per production.
  • Fixed an issue where pets were not going into the Shadowguard encounters correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where dark whisps were not deleted after the Exploring the Deep Peerless encounter ends.

Additions
  • Merchant's Trinkets have been added as a Trade Order reward.
    • These special earrings, when equipped on a player-owned vendor, will reduce the total cost of the daily fee charged by either 5% or 10%. They come with 90 charges and use one charge per day. While not particularly useful at this very moment, we expect this to change in November when we revert Player Vendors to charge based on the production UO equation.
    • Merchant Trinkets can be obtained by completing trade orders to their respected City Trade Order Ministers. The odds to get a 5% or 10% merchant trinket are the same odds as getting a random trade sign.
    • Trinket.png
  • Copper Wings, Copper Portraits, Copper Sunflowers, and Copper Ship Relief Addon deeds can now be fished up in SOSs. (added to the same table as GrapeVine and LargeFishingNet)
  • An Anniversary Plate memorializing a random event in Britannias past can now be found in the highest level treasure maps. (added to the same table as CoffinPiece and MasterSkeletonKey
    • [*]public static Type[] ArtifactsLevelSeven => m_LevelSevenOnly;
      private static readonly Type[] m_LevelSevenOnly = new Type[]
      {
      typeof(CoffinPiece), typeof(MasterSkeletonKey), typeof(AnniversaryPlate)
      };

      public static Type[] SOSArtifacts => m_SOSArtifacts;
      private static readonly Type[] m_SOSArtifacts = new Type[]

      typeof(KelpWovenLeggings),
      typeof(RunedDriftwoodBow),
      typeof(ValkyrieArmor)
      };
      public static Type[] SOSDecor => m_SOSDecor;

      typeof(CopperPortrait1),

  • The old quest system now opens ups the menu when you log in if you have one of these quests selected.
