Publish 53

The following is a list of changes deployed as Publish 53 on June 10, 2008.

Bug Fixes

  • Added a 15 minute timer for a guild to accept an alliance invite. This means guilds will no longer get stuck in "invite pending" mode. (For guilds in this situation now, once the publish goes live, GMs will be able to resolve the issue.)
  • Vanguards and their allies will now teleport if they are attacked while in unreachable locations
  • Players are able to resize instead of demolish houses by saying "I wish to resize my house". NOTE: This DOES count as demolishing a house and WILL condemn existing houses on grandfathered accounts. (Further note: making housing changes (placing, demolishing, etc) on Test Center does not affect houses on production shards.) Currently, removing your house in this way will also remove all items in the moving crate - be warned!
  • Greater Dragons and Dread Warhorses will display properly in trade window
  • Statuette engraving tools will be available, sold by NPC tinkers.
  • Sand and Granite will have double resources in Fel now

  • Zoo Collection points will now decay more slowly
  • Lady Sylvanis will no longer chase people quite so far
  • Repair Service Deeds now work for a Long Sword, orc, bear and tribal masks, right-facing Black Staffs, left-facing Crooks, and left-facing Clubs

  • Moonglow blacksmith regions have been updated to use repair deeds
  • Player vendors should now recognize the increased bank storage
