[Annonce] Patch 1.21

Message  Helmrick le Ven 27 Mar - 23:43


Les développeurs ont posté hier soir
des informations sur la version 1.2.1 qui devrait arriver sur les
serveurs de test publics la semaine prochaine.

C'est Mark Jacobs qui, fidèle à son
habitude, à posté les "Points principaux" de la version 1.2.1. Sans
plus attendre, un résumé en français :

  1. Amélioration du système de combat :
    les latences entre les actions et les problèmes d'affichage des barres
    d'incantation devraient être résolus. Les combats devraient redevenir
    plus fluides.
  2. Système d'upgrade des forts :
    un fort réclamé par une guilde sera plus puissant en fonction de ce que
    la guilde paie. Un tel système existait déjà sur le précédent titre de
    Mythic, Dark Age of Camelot.
  3. Changements de l'interface : notamment pour les fenêtres de guilde et d'options.
  4. Récompenses en RvR : les personnages
    qui participent à la capture d'objectifs et de forts RvR obtiendront
    des bonus à leurs capacités (buffs) et gagneront plus de renommée si la
    zone est capturée (lock).
  5. Un nouveau scénario, la Bataille pour les Portes d'Ekrund, fera son apparition. Il est destiné aux niveaux 19 à 24.
  6. L'événement Au-delà des sables, acte deux de l'expansion live l'Appel aux Armes, est lancé.
  7. Corrections de bugs (en espérant que cela n'en suscite pas plus).
  8. Préparation d'un événement d'un week-end.
  9. Des changements sur les classes dont les détails seront communiqués peu à peu.



Le changement des GTAoE

Ces sorts, qui affectent une zone en
ciblant le sol (ground target area of effect), posaient problème depuis
la version 1.2 en particulier. Il suffisait en effet d'une
demi-douzaine de Sorciers flamboyants ou de Sorcières pour décimer un
tas d'attaquants (voire de défenseurs) dans les forts. Les développeurs
avaient reconnu ce problème lors du récent Dev Chat avec les joueurs européens.

Adam Gershowitz, responsable des carrières, a signalé des changements importants des GTAoE
du Sorcier flamboyant (Pluie de feu), du Magus (Tempête de feu de
Tzeentch) et de la Sorcière (Puits des Ombres) : désormais ils ne s'empileront plus,
c'est-à-dire qu'un ennemi ne pourra être affecté que par un seul GTAoE
à la fois. Ce système avait déjà été mis en place pour l'Igénieur nain
et son fameux "napalm".

Concrètement, un GTAoE affecte
désormais neuf personnes qui ne sont pas touché par un autre GTAoE. Un
mage isolé ne verra pas de changement. Trois mages qui tirent sur une
grosse masse toucheront toujours des joueurs, les dégâts seront
répartis. En revanche si trois mages essaient de tuer un groupe d'une
dizaine de personnes, il faudra que deux d'entre eux utilisent un autre
sort.

Adam signale que les sorts à effet de
zone (AoE) classiques et les PBAoE (centrés sur le lanceur) ne seront
pas modifiés ; en effet les premiers demandent de disposer d'une ligne
de vue et les seconds amènent le mage à s'exposer et à prendre des
risques.

Un équilibrage qui devrait rendre les combats en structure plus intéressants pour tous !

Les changements proposés semblent intéressant, surtout sur les sorts de zone. Very Happy

Les modifications des forts

Here are some standard Keep upgrades, which are pretty self explanatory:

* Door Hit-Point Increase: Hit Points are upgraded 20% per upgrade Rank, up to 5 Ranks.
* Door Repair Merchant: An NPC that sells door-repair wood.
* Guard Numbers: More guards for your Keep by 2 guards per Rank, up to 5 Ranks.
* Patrol Guards Upgrade: Upgrades all patrolling guards to Champion-level guards.
* Static Guards Upgrade: Upgrades all stationary guards to Champion-level guards.
* Standard Merchant: An NPC that sells guild standards.
* Siege Weapon Merchant: An NPC that sells Siege Weapons.
* Healer: An NPC that cures death penalties.
* Banker: An NPC that allows players to access their Personal Vault.
* Guild Vault Keeper: An NPC that allows players to access their Guild Vault.

Here are the non-traditional Keep Upgrades, new to WAR:

Ritualists!

* Guilds can purchase a Ritualist NPC that fires AoE abilities at
enemies on the lower levels. Ritualists are different than standard
NPCs—they will cast either an AoE Healing ability or AoE Lifetap,
depending on the type of Ritualist you chose. These NPCs are designed
to help bottom-floor defense efforts in Keep defenses.

Divine Favor Altar!

* Guilds that have reached Rank 40 can purchase the Divine Favor
Altar. This altar will be located on the Lord level and is used to
unleash pure terror on any would be-attackers in the Keep area. To
purchase an Altar, the guild must be Rank 40 and have purchased a
Ritualist NPC as well.
* The Divine Favor Altar needs to be fueled, and what better way to
appease the gods than by collecting the skulls of fallen enemies! Each
enemy player, when killed, has a chance to drop a Skull. Collecting
these Skulls in the Divine Favor Altar will build up a Divine Favor
charge. Anyone can deposit Skulls into a Divine Favor Altar.
* 500 Skulls equate to 1 Divine Favor charge. Up to 5 charges can be
stored in the Altar. Players with the appropriate guild permissions can
fire the Divine Altar, unleashing a damaging blow to enemies in the
Keep area. Once the ability is fired, it cannot be fired again for 10
minutes.


Traduction rapide:

* Augmentation des points de vie de la porte: +20% par rang jusqu'à 5 rangs

* Marchand de réparation de portes: PNJ qui vend du bois pour réparer les portes

* Nombre de gardes: 2 gardes de plus par rang, jusqu'à 5 rangs

* Amélioration des gardes de patrouille: les patrouilles deviennent des champions

* Amélioration des gardes statiques: les gardes deviennent des champions

* Marchand standard: Marchand qui vend les objets de guilde habituels

* Marchand de siège: pnj qui vend des armes de siège

* Soigneur: PNJ qui soigne les pénalités de mort

* Banquier: PNJ qui permet d'accéder au coffre personnel

* Gardien des coffres: PNJ qui permet d'accéder au coffre de guilde

Améliorations uniques à WAR:

Ritualistes


* Les guildes peuvent enrôler un PNJ ritualiste qui tires des AoE sur les ennemis aux niveaux inférieurs (je pense qu'il s'agit du rez de chaussé / cour extérieure du chateau). Selon le type de ritualiste, ils lancera soit une AoE de soin soit une AoE offensive (mais je veux pas soigner mes ennemis moi :p). Ces PNJs sont conçus pour aider à tenir le rez de chaussé lors de la défense du chateau.


Autel de faveur divine

* Les guildes qui ont atteint le rang 40 (bref ceux qui cheatent) pourront acheter un autel de faveur divine. Cet autel sera placé au niveau du seigneur et servira à libérer une terreur pure sur tous les assaillants de la zone du chateau (j'imagine que l'effet Terreur signifie l'impossibilité de rez - heureusement que c'est rang 40 et que les gtae sont nerf). Pour acheter un autel, la guilde doit être N40 et avoir enrôlé un ritualiste.
* L'autel de faveur divine doit être alimenté, et une meilleure façon d'appaiser les dieux que de donner de l'or est de collecter les crânes des ennemis vaincus ! Tout joueur ennemi tué a une chance de laisser un crâne. Les collecter permet d'alimenter l'autel en charge de faveur divine. Tout le monde peut déposer un crâne dans l'autel (ie: y compris ceux qui ne sont pas de la guilde)

* 500 crânes donnent une charge divine (quand même ...). Jusqu'à 5 charges peuvent être stockées dans l'autel. Les joueurs avec les permissions appropriées peuvent activer l'autel divin, libérant une vague de dégâts sur les ennemis dans le chateau. Lorsque la salve a été tirée, elle ne peut être libérée à nouveau pendant 10 minutes (finalement c'est donc pas un effet terreur)


Intéressant tout ceci :p

Re: [Annonce] Patch 1.21

Message  lionys le Sam 28 Mar - 0:07

This patch also introduces a new resource material that players in RvR
can gather and trade in for deadly assault upgrades! Scattered
throughout the RvR lakes, and acquired from killing players, Ordinance
is collected and traded in for various items and weapons to use in open
RvR!

These items include the following:

* Rams that have double the Hit-points of standard Rams.
* Ballista that do twice the amount of standard Ballista damage.
* Self-only Oil Immunity potions that last 30, 60, or 90 seconds.
* Caltrops which place a small PBAoE Snare/DoT field on the ground.
* Dynamite that is a direct-target DD plus a knockback, which can be
used against players or siege weapons (deals double damage versus siege
weapons).

Ce patch ajoutera également une nouvelle ressource que les joueurs en rvr peuvent obtenir et échanger pour des améliorations d'assaut ! Les ordonances sont dispersés parmi les zones RVR, et peuvent aussi être obtenus sur les joueurs morts. Elles peuvent être échangées pour divers objets et armes à utiliser en open rvr:

* Béliers qui ont 2x les points de vie d'un bélier standard
* Ballistes qui font le double de dégâts (*love*)
* Potions d'immunités à l'huile pour 30/60/90 secondes (pour soi uniquement)
* Caltrops qui créent une petite zone snare/dot sur le sol
* Dynamite (nos ingénieurs vont en être fou :s) qui peuvent être utilisés sur un joueur ou une arme de siège, provoquant des dégâts directs et un effet knockback. Double ses effets sur une machine de siège.

As you can see, the Keep Upgrades offer many great additions to Keeps,
and we’re just getting started! Stay tuned for further Keep Upgrades
coming in later patches. Some of these include the following:

* Guild Bind: An NPC that allows guild-mates to re-spawn inside the Keep.
* Door Spikes: Attaches Spikes to the Keep Doors so any melee attacks damage the attacker.
* Door Barrier: Doors get a magical barrier that absorbs a certain percentage of magic-attack damage.


Comme vous le voyez, les améliorations de chateau offriront plein de fantastiques ajouts pour le chateau, et ce n'est que le début ! D'autres améliorations viendront dans des patchs futurs. Par exemple:

* Lien de guilde: un PNJ qui permet aux membres de guildes de respawn dans le chateau
* Piques de porte: des piques sur la porte qui renvoient des dégâts aux assaillants de mêlée
* Barrière de porte: une barrière magique qui absorbe un certain pourcentage de dégâts magiques

C'est cool pour la correction de bugs ! Smile

Par contre je me pose la question si le renforcement des forts ne va pas accentuer le déséquilibre global. Etant donné que ce sont les guildes les plus actives (et par conséquent les plus puissantes déjà - qui a pensé aux Fallen ? Wink) qui pourront se "payer" les renforcements des forts ceux-ci risquent de devenir tout simplement imprenables. Dès lors la voie pour la prise de capitales sera plus aisée pour le camp avec des forts renforcés. Un effet de bord sera que les guildes vont commencer à augmenter leurs taxes... *cache son magot à l'abri des percepteurs* Wink

/spécial dédicace à Krono Smile
Ah je dis oui, oui bravo, elle n'était pas facile, ha la la, je dis oui !!
Question suivante, top, je suis une classe cheaté de la Destruction, mes dégâts de zone sans ligne de vue ont fait de moi le cauchemar de l'ordre. Je vais me faire méchamment nerf au prochain patch, je suis ? je suis ?

QUE DU BON, dans tous les sens : upgrade des forts avec achat de PNJ (/love patrouille Champions, ou réparer la porte, ou healeur), upgrade de machines de guerre.
Bref, ça va bien réactiver la chose je pense !!!!

Re: [Annonce] Patch 1.21

Message  Llanaeth le Mer 1 Avr - 0:11

Annonce des changements à venir pour les Archimages/Shamanes.

En plusieurs étapes, décrites globalement ici :
Roadmap Overview



The goal for the adjustment is to allow the Shaman / Archmages to become viable healers and nukers, but not necessarily be able to excel at both at the same time, because to do so would make them entirely too powerful in comparison to the other RDPS or healing careers. In addition, we wanted to work in a way for the AM / SH careers to generally be a bit more survivable, but they will have to sacrifice a little DPS or HPS to do so.



This idea has some significant differences from the way the careers are presented currently, but we feel that it makes for a much stronger presentation without radically changing the way most players actually play (dedicated healers). Ultimately, we want to give the Archmage and Shaman more viable options than simply standing back and spamming heals. Please keep in mind that this is an early design and that your feedback at this stage is extremely important to us.


Schedule of Changes



Because of the scope of changes involved, we have split the Archmage / Shaman changes into three patches. Of course these deadlines may change, shortening or lengthening the time between updates. This depends primarily on the feedback we obtain from you, the community, as well as via game-play testing (both internal and public). Below is the general timeframe for the updates. Specific details will be supplied further in the post.



Patch 1.2.1 - "First Steps" Balance Adjustments



This includes details that we would adjust and clean up regardless of the direction we take with Mechanic or Mastery Paths. These changes focus primarily on the increase of base damage and some small adjustments to limited abilities.



Patch 1.3 - Mastery Path Re-shuffle



These changes focus around changing Mastery Paths to represent distinct play styles. This includes some replacement of less-used abilities and Tactics.



Patch 1.3.1 - Mechanic Revamp



These are the final changes that re-enforce the changes made in 1.2.1 and 1.3, and further solidify the role of each of the three Mastery Paths. This includes adjustments to the base values of abilities that make them work with the new mechanic, and the replacement of numerous Tactics that become out-of-date with the mechanic change.

Les modifications de la 1.21, plus en détails :
( 1.2.1 ) Initial Balance Updates



Overall Goal



There are a number of changes that can be pushed to live regardless of the more dramatic changes potentially in-store for the Archmage and Shaman careers further down the line. As such, we felt that it was in the players' best interests to get a smaller partial update out early that slightly improves the careers as we finalize and thoroughly test the remaining changes.


Summary of Changes



1. Increased "Base" Damage for Damage Abilities - Damage on both the AM / SH is low, even when compared to other healers. As such, a moderate increase to damage will happen regardless of further changes.
2. Replace x13 Healing Mastery Ability - Both the Archmage's "Magical infusion" and the Shaman's "Shrug It Off" will be given a more useful effect in addition to something more unique and only available to the AM / SH healers.


Example #1 - Damage improvements



Archmages and Shaman will see around a 25% increase in most damage spells. Below is an example of improved spell damage for the Archmage. Shamans will see similar gains across the board on their spells.



1.2 Radiant Lance



* Base tooltip value of 299 damage at Rank 40.
* Actual damage of 265 for an Archmage with an average of 600 Intelligence, casting on a target that has 400 Toughness and 30% Resist.



1.2.1 Radiant Lance



* Base tooltip value of 399 damage at Rank 40.
* Actual damage of 335 for an Archmage with an average of 600 Intelligence casting on a target that has 400 Toughness and 30% Resist.




Example #2 - Changes to Magical Infusion and Shrug It Off



The old effects of both of these abilities have been removed. Both abilities have been completely replaced with a new "Second Wind" healing effect that will place a buff on the target, and if the target drops below 15% HP, it heals them for a large amount and then is removed. Below are some more details on this change.



* It is instant cast, with a 30 second duration, and a 60 second cool down.
* It costs 55 AP.
* It buffs a friendly target for up to 30 seconds. If the target drops below 15% HP (and is still alive), it heals them for a base value of 1,350 (at full Mastery at Rank 40) and the buff is removed.



For comparison, the 2.5 second heal that the AM / SH have will heal for a base value of 1,125 before stats at Rank 40 with full Mastery.

On attend les informations précises sur les Lions Blancs / Maraudeur Rolling Eyes.

Re: [Annonce] Patch 1.21

Message  lionys le Mer 1 Avr - 0:39

Pour les archimages/shamans, c'est assez long et est sensé s'étendre du patch 1.21 au patch 1.31. En gros:


Modification des valeurs des compétences: (1.21 et 1.3)
Les soins seront un peu abaissés, pour qu'en max soin (+60%) on soigne +30% par rapport à actuellement.
Les dégâts sont augmentés d'environs 25%



Mécanisme: (1.31)
La haute magie deviendra un marqueur allant de +3 (max soins, +60% de bonus soins / -30% dégâts) à -3 (max dégâts, +60% dégâts / -30% soins). Chaque sort de soins déplace le curseur vers le +3 (donc on soigne encore mieux), chaque sort de dégât fait baisser de 1 point, et chaque sort hybride (leech vitalité en fait) ramène vers le centre.


Refonte des arbres de spé: (1.3)
Isha: pur soin


  • Rank 1 - Healing Energy (soin direct + hot)
  • Rank 7 - Prismatic Shield (bouclier)
  • Rank 8 - Boon of Hysh (gros soin direct)
  • Rank 20 - Blessing of Isha (soin de groupe)
  • Rank 40 - Rain Lord (debuff CT/Fo/Int)
  • Mastery x5 - Mistress of the Marsh (gtae snare + debuff initiative)
  • Mastery x9 - Funnel Essence (soin canalisé)
  • Mastery x13 - Magical Infusion (buff 30 secondes, cd 60secondes. Si la cible tombe en dessous de 15% de vie, lance un gros soin puis disparaît)

Asuryan: pur dégâts

  • Rank 1 - Radiant Lance (DD cible unique)
  • Rank 2 Law of Conductivity (Dot cible unique)
  • Rank 6 - Searing Touch (DD canalisé)
  • Rank 12 - Radiant Gaze (Dot/debuff cible unique)
  • Rank 30 - Fury of Asuryan (DD cible unique instant)
  • Mastery x5 - Cleansing Flare (DD AE bump)
  • Mastery x9 - Scatter the Winds (Debuff spirit)
  • Mastery x13 - Dissipating Energies (Buff, provoque des dégâts toutes les 2 secondes autour de la cible)

Vaul: absorption de vitalité, mix soin/dégâts

  • Rank 4 - Balance Essence (DD drain de vie)
  • Rank 5 - Shield of Saphery (buff résistances)
  • Rank 9 - Transfer Force ([/size]Dot drain de vie)
  • Rank 18 - Drain Magic (DD + vol PA)
  • Rank 35 - Law of Age (Debuff endurance AE)
  • Mastery x5 - Storm of Cronos (DD AE + debuff spirit)
  • Mastery x9 - Law of Gold ([size=9]DD + silence)
  • Mastery x13 - *NEW ABILITY* (DD ou Dot AE + drain de vie)

Je rappelle à toutes fins utiles que tout ce qui concerne le patch 1.21 (et à plus forte raison les patchs futurs) n'est pas encore validé, bien qu'étant de source officielle, car cela concerne pour le moment le serveur test.

Voici le patch note de la version test de la 1.2.1, -ici-

Pour ceux qui ne peuvent y accéder, vu que la longeur dépasse celle autorisée ici pour poster, en voilà déjà un morceau Wink
Spoiler:
Greetings!

The Public Test Server is now open for your testing enjoyment! We're pleased to introduce game update 1.2.1 which include several new ORvR features, improved UI functionality, Career Balancing and as always, multiple bug fixes.

For information on how to transfer your characters over to the Public Test Server please read here.

Please be sure to check out the Public Test Forum for all of the latest news about the happenings on the PTS.

In addition to all of these exciting changes and new features, we will once again be hosting developer lead large scale Open Realm vs. Realm tests on the Public Test server, the first of which will be taking place, tomorrow, April 2nd starting at 8:00 PM EDT. Please keep your eyes on the Herald for more information regarding this test. We will also be hosting an event on April 7th starting at 8:00 PM EDT to test the new Keep Upgrade/Attacker Ordnance system. More information will be available on the Herald about this test in the coming days.

For a full listing of the 1.2.1 Public Test Notes and Highlights, please follow the jump.

We'll see you on the PTS!

Update 5:20 PM EDT - Added the following note under Warrior Priests:

Cleansing Power: This tactic has been changed. It will now cause Purify to remove a Curse or hex from everyone in the target’s group.


Highlights:

Keep Upgrade System

Own a Keep? Want to keep it? Want to get more out of it? Then the new Keep Upgrade system is perfect for you! Guilds that own a Keep can now purchase upgrades to bolster their hold's utility and defenses in a variety of ways.Once a Keep has been claimed, a guild member with sufficient permission can speak to the Guild Keep Agent on the upper level of the Keep to choose what upgrades to purchase. These upgrades require a periodic maintenance fee and some are available in multiple levels. Once purchased, upgrades will take time to be completed. This process can be monitored via the new Keep Upgrade Interface. Upgrades will decay if funds are unavailable to pay their maintenance or if a guild member chooses to stop paying for the upgrade.

Guilds that successfully hold a Keep until the zone is captured will be rewarded with a free gold bag that will be mailed to the guild master, and is tradable to his or her guild members.

Combat Responsiveness Improvements

We are always working to improve the overall responsiveness of our game client and server. With version 1.2.1 players will see some significant improvements including the following:

* Casting times have become more accurate under normal play conditions, and players should no longer see a significant “stretch” or “pause” when casting spells in low or moderate latency situations.
* Accuracy of the spell cast UI has been improved. The display will now show ½ second increments and will no longer “stretch” time to compensate for latency. Instead, players will see a pause after the bar has filled completely if they are in a high-latency environment.
* Continued improvements to animation and visual effects performance have been made. Players will see smoother transitions between animations and significantly less stuck visual effects, especially when chain-casting abilities.

UI Improvements

We are pleased to announce several improvements and enhancements to the game's User Interface!

* The Guild Window has received a major facelift and several functional improvements. We have added more information to the Guild Window, such as new news alerts and additional statistics on the profile tab. We have also resolved several interface bugs with the window, such as promoting and demoting through the UI and loss of guild permissions.
* The User Settings window has been divided into tabs for convenience and clarity. The Customize Interface window has been folded into the User Interface window under the "Interface" tab. Tooltips have also been added to various elements in the User Settings window in order to explain their function.

RvR Zone Control Rewards

* Various improvements have been made to Zone Control Rewards in Tier 4 zones to reward players for zone captures more so than individual Objective and Keep captures. When active zones are captured in Tier 4, all players in the zone are awarded Renown based on their level similar to Tiers 1, 2, and 3. If a Keep is claimed by a guild when the zone is captured, a Gold Bag will be mailed to the Guild Leader who can then mail it to anyone in the guild, as they see fit.


* Battlefield Objectives that are owned by the conquering realm will also buff all of the players in the zone with the same buffs that Sergeants grant players. Lastly, players who have captured a Keep or Battlefield Objective in the zone which is then captured will be awarded double the amount of Renown they would normally gain from capturing those locations.


Upgrade Your Assault with Ordnance!

We are pleased to introduce a new resource to RvR that players can trade in for deadly assault upgrades! Scattered throughout the RvR lakes and acquired from killing players, Ordnance is collected and traded in for various items and weapons to use in open field RvR! Battering rams with more hit points, ballistae that do more damage, oil immunity potions, caltrops, and dynamite can all be purchased and used on unsuspecting enemy players!

New Guild Recruitment Options

Guilds can now set up a "profile" for their guild using the “Recruitment” tab in the Guild Window. Settings for type of guild, careers, and levels being recruited, as well as guild "recruiters" can be set in the Recruitment tab. Once your guild recruitment info is filled out, players can search using the same criteria in the "search" tab to find guilds that fit their individual play-style and needs. Guilds can also be hyper-linked into chat either by shift-left clicking on the "Link Your Guild" link in the Recruitment tab, or by shift-left-clicking the guild title in the search results panel. When players click the guild hyper-link, they will receive an individual window identical to the panel in search results. No more chat spamming required, just let the hyper-links fly!

Character Profiles

Introducing the new character profile system, which gives you complete control over the way you play your characters! Each character will now have its own Interface Profile. This will allow customization of addons and UI layout on a per-character basis. You can also customize multiple profiles per character. For instance, if you want to have a different set of addons for soloing versus open RvR, just open the Profile Management window, create a new profile, and make any changes you wish. You can then swap between those profiles at any time in the management window.

Profiles can also be copied from character to character, even across servers. Just choose "Create from existing Profile" when making a new profile, and you will be shown a list of all the profiles for all characters you have on all servers.

When you first log in, your first character will automatically map your existing user settings to the new profile. On first login of an alternate character, you will be asked if you would like to start with a default profile or use the profile of an existing character.

Please note that this is only the first iteration of the character profile system. We are working to add new features, including the ability to save keybindings as part of the profile.

The Battle for the Gates of Ekrund Expands!

The massive Gates of Ekrund are all that stand between the Dwarf-held mines at Ekrund and the greenskin-infested domain of Mount Bloodhorn. The battles fought for control of this ancient structure have been among the most bitter in the Age of Reckoning, and now both sides are calling for additional reinforcements!
Beginning with this update, players of Rank 19-24 will be able to join a special 6-on-6 version of the Gates of Ekrund called "Broken Gates of Ekrund." Also, a new quest has been added to the game to reward players who answer the call to defend (or smash down!) the Gates.

General Changes & Bug Fixes

* Fixed an issue that could cause the reported /played time to become inaccurate over time.
* Fleeing monsters will not flee as far as they previously did and will no longer immediately leave combat after fleeing.
* If the 'Show Guild Heraldry' option in the Inventory Panel is checked, and the player is wearing a non-standard back item (for example, the Brewmaster Backpack or Heavy Metal event cloak), the back item will be replaced with a default cloak displaying the guild heraldry.
* Player mounts and other creatures that are set to hug the ground will now do so everywhere and not just on terrain.
* The game client will now prioritize corpses with loot on them over empty corpses. As a result, players will now be able to more easily loot items from piles of corpses.
* When changing appearance (such as a Marauder mutating) the cloak Show Guild Heraldry setting will now persist through the appearance change.
* Fixed an issue where guild taxes and tithes were not able to be set on certain servers.

Capital Cities

* Sigmar's Crypts: Arch Lectors Zakarai and Verrimus will now correctly apply a damage debuff to players when they switch powers.
* City Lord and King fight bosses are now immune to the snap target component of taunt abilities. They are not immune to the threat generation caused by taunt.
* The Renown merchants that offer Tier-based Renown gear similar to the Renown merchants in the warcamps have had their titles adjusted to make it easier for players to identify each Tier of Renown gear.
* Players will no longer be required to select an instance when entering a contested city. Instead, players will always be placed in the same instance as their group or warband. New instances will be created by the server as older instances become full.
* In order to allow more players the opportunity to participate in city-related RvR, the contested city Scenarios (The Undercroft and the War Quarters) are now only accessible to players in the Rank range of 8-29. All players below Rank 28 will be bolstered to Rank 28 while in the Scenario.
* Players who attempt to log into a city that is contested will now spawn at their refugee camp instead of inside the peaceful version of the city.
* Upon successful destruction of the door into the city, friendly guards will arrive to support the invading army's foray into the enemy capital!

Re: [Annonce] Patch 1.21

Et enfin, le RvR, Guildes, ...

Spoiler:
Realm vs. Realm

Keep Upgrade System

* Once a Keep has been claimed, a guild member with sufficient permission can speak to the Guild Broker NPC on the upper level of the Keep to choose what upgrades to purchase. These upgrades require a periodic maintenance fee and some are available in multiple Ranks. Once purchased, upgrades will take time to be completed and this process can be monitored on the new Keep Upgrade Interface. Upgrades will decay if funds are unavailable to pay their maintenance or a guild member chooses to stop paying for the upgrade.

Guilds that successfully hold a Keep until the zone is captured will be rewarded with a free Gold Bag that will be mailed to the guild master and is tradable to his or her guild members.

Realm vs. Realm Ordnance

* This patch also introduces a new resource material that players in RvR can gather and trade in for deadly assault upgrades! Scattered throughout the RvR lakes, and acquired from killing players, Ordinance is collected and traded in for various items and weapons to use in open RvR!

These items include the following:
o Rams that have double the Hit-points of standard Rams
o Ballista that do twice the amount of standard Ballista damage
o Self-only Oil Immunity potions that last 30, 60, or 90 seconds
o Caltrops which place a small PBAoE Snare/DoT field on the ground
o Dynamite that when thrown at a player will deal direct damage and knockback and if thrown at a siege weapon will deal double damage.

Zone Capture Rewards

* Various improvements have been made to Zone Control Rewards in Tier 4 zones to reward players for zone captures more so than individual Objective and Keep captures. When active zones are captured in Tier 4, all players in the zone are rewarded Renown based on their Rank, similar to Tiers 1, 2, and 3. If a Keep is owned by a guild when the zone is captured and the zone is captured via Zone Domination, a Gold Loot Bag will be mailed to the guild leader who can then mail it to anyone in the guild. Battlefield Objectives that are owned by the conquering realm will also buff all the players in the zone with the same buffs that Sergeants grant players. Lastly, players who have captured a Keep or Battlefield Objective in the zone which is captured will be rewarded double the amount of Renown they gain from capturing a Keep or Battlefield Objective!

Scenario Updates

* We have made the following scoring changes to RvR Scenarios:
o Battle for Praag : Increased the points per kill to 3, and increased the points per kill by 1 for the realm that owns Central Praag.
o Caledor Woods: Increased the points per kill to 5. Siege weapons have been installed to prevent spawn camping.
o Doomfist Crater: Increased the points per kill by 1, and increased the Center capture points over time by 1.
o Gromril Crossing: Increased the points per kill to 3, and increased the points per kill by 1 for realm that owns the Bridge.
o High Pass Cemetery: Increased the player kills to 2 points, and each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm.
o Khaine’s Embrace: Increased player kills to 5 points, and each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm. Interacting with the scions also now gives 2 points.
o Logrin’s Forge: Each control point will grant 1 extra point per kill for the controlling realm.
o Thunder Valley: Decreased points over time on the satellite capture points to 4 points every 10 seconds.

Miscellaneous RvR Changes

* Players that are occupying a Keep of the opposite realm when a Tier 4 campaign resets will now be teleported back to their warcamp.
* Characters Rank 19-24 will now be able to queue for a new 6 vs. 6 version of the Scenario 'Gates of Ekrund' from any Tier 3 zone.
* Players in a locked Tier 4 pairing will now be able to queue for any available Scenarios from the other pairings. Previously, players would need to journey to an unlocked pairing to join available Scenarios.
* We have made several changes to the Zone Control Detail Bar. The first is a textual mode which will display the current zone control pool totals as a percentage instead of a progress bar. To change modes, right-click the Zone Detail window and make your selection. The second change is that we have added additional information to the tooltips for each pool which displays how much that pool contributes to overall Zone Control. Lastly, the position of the Zone Control Detail Bar in the UI can now be changed.
* Players who accept a Rally Call when dead will now be resurrected upon arriving at the warcamp.
* Renown, Influence, and Experience rewards for capturing a Keep have been reduced by 50%; however, once a zone is captured, players who participated in taking a Keep, and who are still in the pairing, will be rewarded double the Renown, Influence, and Experience received from the initial Keep capture. Furthermore, we’ve also added additional Renown rewards for all players in the Tier 4 zone when it becomes captured.
* Warcamp tooltips now display a list of service NPCs who are spawned at the camp.
* Pairing maps and zone maps now include a tooltip which displays the recommended Rank range of the zone.
* Keep doors will now always be attackable by the opposite realm after the Keep has changed hands. Additionally, defenders will now be able to see the health of the Keep door at all times.
* A bug has been fixed which was preventing the wind indicator from displaying on certain siege weapons.

User Interface

General Changes and Bug Fixes

* The User Settings window has been divided into tabs for convenience and clarity. The Customize Interface window has been folded into the User Interface window under the "Interface" tab. Tooltips have also been added to various elements in the User Settings window in order to explain their function.
* Fixed a problem where players were losing guild permissions after zoning.
* Fixed an issue with certain players not being able to be promoted or demoted via the guild window UI.
* Resolved the issue where guild members with the permission were not able to talk in Alliance chat.
* Pre-game splash screens and opening cinematic can now be skipped by hitting the ESC key.
* The Respawn Counter window will no longer continue to count down after resurrection. And dead players everywhere shouted out in silent merriment!
* New group members will no longer appear dead in the party or warband UI.
* Fixed an issue where characters were not being shown as in their guild after being booted to the character select screen.
* Pets can now be targeted via the standard party UI.
* “Target Nearest Enemy” should no longer target dead players or objects, and instead opt for a live opponent.
* Keep doors and other attackable objects will now display their health.
* After guild creation, a group will still be able to use their right-click context sensitive menu.
* Buff icons should now always behave correctly, have the correct tooltip information, and never remain after hiding the party UI.
* The group loot window, after having expired, should no longer appear as expired on all future loot windows.
* Warcamps and Chapters now display all services they contain in a single tooltip on the zone map regardless of player location.
* The minimap has had some simple tweaking—the Scenario and Rally Call buttons are larger, and the filter and map icons have moved to the bottom of the minimap. This will fix some of the overlap that was appearing in that area.
* Guild leaders or members with appropriate permissions can now designate members to serve as guild recruiters. To do so, right-click on a member's name in the Roster window and select "Assign Recruiter." The recruiter icon will show in the "special" column of the guild window.
* Removed the Edit and Delete buttons from shared Alliance events.
* Players will only open the PQ Loot window when clicking on the PQ Tracker itself, not in the invisible space around it.
* Morale bars will now update correctly in the party UI.
* Fixed various text inconsistencies in the guild reward tooltips.
* Party UI will no longer disappear when reloading the UI at 1152 x 864 resolution.
* Color pickers in the Heraldry editor were swapped incorrectly. They will now reference the correct section of Heraldry.
* Center-screen messaging for players being ported out of the Tomb of the Fallen Slayers will now display correctly.
* Event tooltips and guild news no longer allow line breaks or paragraph breaks in the body of their text.
* Guild Profile information can now be deleted and cleared.
* Standard posts in the guild window will now display the correct realm's posts.
* Fixed a minor issue where some letters of very long words were not displaying in edit boxes.

Guild Window Improvements

The Guild Window has received a major facelift and several functional improvements. We have added more information to the Guild Window, such as new news alerts and additional statistics on the profile tab. We have also resolved several interface bugs with the window, such as promoting and demoting through the UI and loss of guild permissions.

Details of the changes are as follows:

* Profile Tab
o Added more guild statistics to the profile page. Keep name and upkeep cost, personal renown and tithe contributed.
o Fixed layout issues with daily message and about us text entry windows.
o Removed the website and email text entry, since most people were just adding them to the about us window anyways.
o Added more guild news types like banners captured and lost, better messaging for current guild news, fixed filters and layout.
o Added guild heraldry to the profile tab.

* Calendar Tab
o Calendar functionality remains mostly the same, but support for displaying specific times for events, as well as a cleaner flow to the process of creating events has been added.
* Rewards tab
o Folded rewards list into the heraldry and tactic editor section. Reformatted the rewards table to not only be correct, but to make the layout and delivery of the rewards more clear.
o Fixed the layout, interaction and display of various items in the heraldry and tactic sections.
* Roster Tab
o The roster tab is now finally the informative section it always should have been. All guild members are listed in single rows, all information, ranks level career, etc can now be used to sort the list. The special category now lists standard bearers, recruiters, and group or warband status for each guild member. Member and Officer notes are now in the tooltip for each member and no longer requires a toggle to be viewed.

* Alliance tab
o Now shows more information about alliance officers and ranks, as well as alliance guild heraldry.

* Manage Tab
o Fixed various issues with titles sometimes not being editable. The layout of the window remains mostly the same but various display and formatting issues have been fixed. The guild tax and personal tithe rates can also be set from this window.
* Recruit Tab
o This is the entirely new guild recruiting system. It is subdivided into two tabs.
o Advertise for setting up information about your guild, and Search for searching for matching information about other guilds. Pretty much everything you could want to set about your guild can be done in the advertise tab: interests, ranks needed, careers needed, looking to form an alliance, etc.
o The search tab allows players or guilds to be very broad or very specific when searching for guilds. Most useful for off peak time players is the ability to set search requirements and to sort by current players online in the guild, to ensure that a guild is active when you are.

Voilà, vous avez tout Wink

Plein de bons trucs !!!
Un sac d'or pour le GM pour le lock d'une zone où la guilde détient un fort et dispatchable dans la guilde.
Plus possible d'aller dans le fort ennemi en attendant le reset d'une zone pour buter direct le Lord !

Excellent, ça va encore booster le Airvéhair !
