PvM Testing Patch 4-4-18
#1
Patch Notes

Stun
  • The Stun Mechanic has been removed  (both PvM and PvP)


Curing Attempts
  • Whenever a player fails to cure their target (via potion, bandage, spell) the next cure attempt on that target gains a cumulative bonus to future cure attempts equal to 50% of the current chance
  • Whenever a target is cured, their cumulative cure bonuses are reset to 0%

Example

A player attempting to cure Deadly Poison with a greater cure potion has a 50% cure chance
If they fail, their next cure chance would be 75%
If they fail again, their next cure chance would be 112.5%

Cure Chances

Lesser Cure Potion

Lesser Poison: 75% Chance
Regular Poison: 50% Chance
Greater Poison: 25% Chance
Deadly Poison: 0% Chance
Lethal Poison: 0% Chance

Regular Cure Potion

Lesser Poison: 100% Chance
Regular Poison: 75% Chance
Greater Poison: 50% Chance
Deadly Poison: 25% Chance
Lethal Poison: 0% Chance

Greater Cure Potion
Lesser Poison: 125% Chance
Regular Poison: 100% Chance
Greater Poison: 75% Chance
Deadly Poison: 50% Chance
Lethal Poison: 25% Chance

Bandaging Attempts
Chance = ((150% - (Poison Level * 25%)) * (Healing Skill / 100)) - (Slips * 2%); 

Cure and Arch Cure
Chance = ((150% - (Poison Level * 25%)) * (Magery Skill / 100))

  • Weapons have been overhauled and now use a dice-based system
  • Damage values for weapons will still be displayed (via Arms Lore) as Minimum and Maximum
  • Different weapon skill types (Fencing / Swords / Macing / Archery) have different damage consistencies, meaning how often they tend to gravitate towards the average expected value

Low damage consistency 

Swordmaship Weapons
Medium damage consistency

Macing Weapons 
High damage consistency

Archery Weapons 
High damage consistency


Creature Damage
  • Tamed Creatures now do +100% damage with spells against other creatures (previously was +50%)

Passive Taming Skill Gain
  • Players can now passively gain up to 2.5 points of Animal Taming skill for every 5 point skill range (i.e. 50-55, 55-60, etc) by using tamed creatures to kill creatures
  • In order to qualify for passive taming skill gain, the player must use tamed creatures that when tamed could grant skill gain (i.e. a have Min Taming skill within 25 points of the Tamer's current Animal Taming skill)
  • Adjusted the chances that killing creatures will grant passive taming skill (higher chances when player has low taming and scales downward towards 120 skill)

  • Any Pet Traits that use "Focused Aggression" from Herding will gain that trait's benefit so long as the pet is within 16 tiles of their Focused Aggression target
