Changes

Jul 11th #700EnderMinor changes to roomattack (and areaattack for mobs), specifically around dead targets and no longer targeting anyone that cannot be seen.
Jul 11th #699EnderImbue and Ward Armor have changed so that they only show up from attempted melee attacks.
Jul 11th #698EnderBashing will no longer cause the victim (on a success) nor the basher (on a failure) to drop into the resting position. Failed bashes will lag for an extra 3 seconds.
May 12th #697EnderTiered spells' effects which hit will now apply prior to damage being dealt.
May 11th #696EnderNo-remove items can now be removed at any room with a healer in it. (Hometown healers or alliance healers.)
May 11th #695EnderThe entire backbone of the death system (for players and NPCs) has been rewritten. This should fix the rare crash bug caused by a mob's death mprog killing the initial killer (which happened frequently with current techniques to slay Gandalf). Apart from a lack of crashes and potential multiple-player-deaths from fights in the morgue, no combat mechanics should have noticeably changed.
May 11th #694EnderNGP timers will pause while a player is in the death state.
May 11th #693EnderPlayer corpses are no longer created on death. All items stay with the player, and those which were equipped stay equipped. Affects are still removed, with the exception of those granted via equipped items.
May 11th #692EnderUpon death, players will now enter a death-state for 30 to 60 seconds (depending on your level). In this state, they can only use informational and communication commands, and may not be targeted by any combat mechanics. When the death timer expires, the player will be fully restored.
May 11th #691EnderPlayers, like NPCs, will now die at 0 hp. Previously, players were only killed at -11 hp or lower. This change also removed related character positions (mortally wounded and incapacitated).
May 11th #690EnderNewbie packs will no longer contain bread nor a water jug, as neither hunger nor thirst exist anymore.
May 11th #689EnderFor clients which support blinking text, the "You sure are BLEEDING!" message will no longer blink.
Mar 6th #688EnderQuests will no longer be given for targets in the room "Depths of the Wraithworld (Tumunzahar)".
Mar 4th #687EnderTier 3 spells in spell chains (AoE) will now apply damage multipliers/boosts to all targets, not just the first. It will also roll new damage dice per target, instead of using the same base damage for each.
Mar 4th #686EnderAdded 'divine mastery' to the Druid slist.
Mar 3rd #685EnderMany mobs in Tumunzahar and Blue Mountains which previously casted 'divine wrath' have been adjusted.
Feb 26th #684EnderNerfed NPC parry/dodge/sidestep/deflect, as is was inadvertently buffed."
Feb 26th #683EnderThe divine cooldown has been lowered to approximately 10 minutes, after casting divine wrath, divine intervention, or divine word. This still inactivates the passive benefits of all divine skills and the ability to cast any divine spell, for the duration of the cooldown.
Feb 26th #682EnderDivine word has changed to cost the priest a 33% of their maximum hp, mana, and movement. In return, all group members regain 67% of their own maximum hp, mana, and movement. If this spell would drop the priest below 1 hp, it no longer kills the priest, and instead leaves them at 1 hp.
Feb 26th #681EnderAll spell chain base damage has received a boost of approximately 20%. (This is before damage modifiers, such as affinities and staff channeling come into play.)
Feb 26th #680EnderThe wizard skills 'channel staff' and 'enhanced channel' have been altered such that their bonuses are additive with other bonuses, as opposed to multiplicative. For the energy spell chain, this is a slight nerf, while it should have negligible effect on the other 11 spell chains.
Feb 26th #679EnderDivine affinity was added to priest. It is a passive skill which gives a damage buff to the 4 divine spell chains, so long as the priest has divine abilities active (not on cooldown), and the priest is of the proper alignment for the spell chain being cast (The light spell chain has no alignment restriction.) This skill does not give any resistances.
Feb 26th #678EnderNatural affinity was added to strider. It is a passive skill which gives a damage buff to the 3 nature spell chains, so long as the strider is not inside. This skill does not give any resistances.
Feb 26th #677EnderDivine mastery received a slight buff.
Feb 26th #676EnderMystical spirit and arcane spirit have been added to both the wizard and priests slists. Each provide a damage buff to all 12 spell chains.
Feb 26th #675EnderThe damage bonuses from divine spirit, elemental spirit, and natural spirit have been nerfed slightly. They also no longer affect the energy spell chain.
Feb 26th #674EnderThe 'delete' command now references the 'recreate' command, to assist anyone who is deleting in order to try a new class order.
Feb 26th #673EnderThe 'deflect' skill has replaced 'parry' in the warrior slist. Half of the efficiency of the old 'parry' has mitigated to the 'deflect' skill. An overlooked primary class bonus for rangers & warriors has been removed from 'parry' and worked into the skills' proficiencies (practice %s).
Feb 26th #672EnderThe 'sidestep' skill has replaced 'dodge' in the ranger slist. Half of the efficiency of the old 'dodge' has mitigated to the 'sidestep' skill. An overlooked primary class bonus for rangers & thieves has been removed from 'dodge' and worked into the skills' proficiencies (practice %s).
Feb 17th #671EnderFixed a bug with the practice command showing the stored skill/spell % instead of the acting cap by class order (when appropriate).
Feb 17th #670EnderDivine wrath from the priest slist now sets the priest's divine cooldown (shared by the other divine spells), and as such it cannot be used continuously. It has also changed to act as a 4th tier spell for three of the cleric spell chains (holy, negative, and mental). Which chain is used to determine damage depends on the alignment of the priest at the time. The spell mimics the appropriate tier 2 spell, but with much higher damage.
Feb 17th #669EnderAdded divine spirit and natural spirit to the priest and strider slists, respectively. They are identical to elemental spirit for wizards, but for their respective base classs spell chains. The energy spell chain gains a partial benefit from each of the 3 spirit skills.
Feb 17th #668EnderRearranged the levels of some spells and skills for mages, clerics and rangers.
Feb 17th #667EnderRemoved all mage and cleric damage spells which were not within a spell chain.
Feb 17th #666EnderAll tier 2 spells (in spell chains) have had a slight increase in damage, while the tier 3 (AoE) spells have had their damage decreased slightly to match that of the tier 2.
Feb 17th #665EnderThe shared energy spell chain now grows in effectiveness as the caster trains up the other 11 spell chains. The tier 1 spells boost the damage of the tier 1 energy spell, tier 2 spells boost the tier 2 spell, etc. Each mage spell has the potential to boost the respective energy spell twice as much as ranger or cleric spells.
Feb 17th #664EnderAll spell chains now share the same base damage, by tier. That is all tier 1 spells have the same base damage, regardless of their level in the slist. The only exception is the energy spell chain, which has a slightly lower base damage.
Feb 17th #663EnderMany new damage spells added, all part of spell chains. Clerics now have spell chains for mental, holy, negative and light damage, and rangers have them for water, wood and sound damage. The blast spell was also replaced with arcane clasp, while a new blast and a nova spell have been added, completing an energy chain which is also interweaved into each of the other 11 spell chains.
Feb 13th #662EnderStrength and dexterity modifiers to damroll and hitroll, respectively, have been doubled.
Feb 13th #661Ender'Adrenaline rush' affect has been removed from the hometown spellup list. (It added damroll.)
Feb 13th #660EnderBug fixed for adepts level 4+, which was attempting to further train their primary base class skills/spells.
Feb 12th #659EnderAfter recreating, any spells/skills that have practiced % higher than the new class order allows will have their % stored such that a future recreate could restore the old value.
Feb 12th #658EnderThe 'train reset' command is no longer free at level 70 (but is still free through level 69).
Feb 12th #657EnderThe recreate command is now free until leve 70 (exclusive).
Feb 12th #656EnderNames can now be a prefix of a mob name, so long as they are not an exact keyword match.
Feb 12th #655EnderDwarf base stats have been altered, with +1 int/wis and -1 con/str.
Jan 13th #654EnderNRP has been renamed to NGP (Non-Gameplay), along with who-list flags and message updates. Adept only areas are now shown on the who-list with an [AO] flag and are attached to the NGP area via an adept-only room. The ngp commands now operate on a 3 minute timer which is canceled via combat, and a 10 minute cooldown has been added after a successful NGP transfer. The Hall of Heroes (HoH) has been removed.
Jan 13th #653EnderThe Middle-earth pack with basic starter gear no longer holds gear from any low-level areas.
Nov 12th #652EnderSolo quest points now only apply to PK alliances; non-PK alliance members are rewarded similar to non-alliance members.

Mar 5th #621SulandPlayers in NRP will now void out (and disconnect) like normal.

Feb 27th #619SulandExamine command now works for any class to see object stats. The lag of using it is dependent upon your knowledge (% trained) of the lore skill.
Feb 1st #618SulandThe forumregister command has been created so that Mordor players may register an account for the online forums. Refer to the forumregister helpfile for details.
Jan 31st #617SulandThe forums version (accessed via mordormud.net) has been updated.

Jun 23rd #596SulandExperience is now split up amonst those on enemy lists, for in combat experience, death experience, and bonus experience from select higher level mobs. This change should be more-or-less transparent, assuming active participation in fighting the mob.

Jun 23rd #594SulandHealing or aiding someone via a spell while in the room with their enemies will add them as your own enemy.

Jul 12th #572SulandFailed bashes no longer have a 12 second lag time.
Jul 12th #571Suland(Jun15 - Accidentally Deleted) Bash is no longer affected by a level modifier, thus bashing mobs should be easier. A few other bash modifiers have also been fixed, such as haste on both the bashed and defender, defender AC, and dodge training. (Further tweaking will be done as necessary.)
Jul 12th #570SulandAll summoned mobs and minions should now have slightly higher HP than mobs of equal level, and damage that is on-par with normal mobs as well.

Jul 12th #568SulandMirror_of_morgoth has been changed. It now depends on "detect magic" (yes, you read that correctly), as well as the target's saving throw (saves) and spell trained percentage. Level difference is also now a smaller factor (unless the difference is beyond 50 levels).

Jun 15th #561SulandNecromantic calling has been changed to invoke minions that are 20 levels lower than the corpse, as opposed to 30 levels lower. (Mistake due to testing with an immortal character that also had "arcane conjuring".)
May 26th #560SulandShield slam is no longer based upon shield weight, but rather upon shield level.
May 26th #559SulandAdded combat attunement low in the thief tree, and battle rhythm even lower in the ranger tree. Each of these skills will apply a percentage increase to one's damroll, while in combat. The caps for each of the bonuses are based upon the trained percentages. While out of combat, the bonus will decrease.
May 26th #558SulandThe bonus that strength gave to hitroll is now applied via dexterity instead.
May 26th #557SulandBackstab and circle damage are now more proportional to skill %, and not based directly on class order. (This should help non-primary thieves.)

May 26th #555SulandTypo fixed when a mob casts teleport at a player, but fails to teleport them.
May 26th #554SulandHarden now lasts 6 rounds instead of 4, and it can be used again before the prior use wears out, to reset the duration.

Apr 26th #549SulandFixed a bug where players could request groupquests while solo, under certain circumstances.
Apr 26th #548SulandAdded a 'recreate' command, so you can now recreate without immortal assistance. This cost is level based, and you can check how much it will be by type 'recreate' by itself. Beware: Typing it with your password as the argument is irreversible!
Apr 26th #547SulandAdded a 'note read last' option, which will re-read the last note you read. Note that this will not save when you log out.
Apr 26th #546SulandAdded some changes to mob-prog commands: specifically, expect to see coming changes for mobs that "call out" to other mobs.
Apr 26th #545SulandAdded 'saving grace' skill to priest tree. This skill creates a chance for healing spells to be doubled when the target of the heal is under 50% health.
Apr 26th #544SulandShields and effects given via equipment are now displayed in the affects list.
Apr 26th #543SulandThe affects command has been changed. The durations have been color coded and now show only the pertinent information. (Do a full spell up, and you'll notice it, as well as notice the differences as the time gets closer to running out.)

Apr 26th #541SulandYou can no longer auction bound items.
Apr 26th #540SulandDispel magic has been vastly updated. It will only dispel buffing spells, and it can hit every buffing spell in the game. It will also work on mobs higher level than yourself, although it now requires a double saves break per spell that is dispelled. The spell is also based more upon spell % than it was before (worse for those with cleric lower in their order).
Apr 26th #539SulandCalldragon will now work when you have already summoned a mob (if your character order permits multiple followers).
Apr 26th #538SulandAll owned mobs (charmies, summons, pets, mounts) will now act the same. They will all follow you, gate with you, etc. None of them will save with you upon logging out. They can also be dismissed by number (2.tiger for example).
Apr 26th #537KulazarSpeechlog has been updated so that messages on most channels will stay in your speechlog after logoff/login. Tells, says, and grouptalk are the exceptions.
