As always we have put a lot of effort into this publish. I am always striving to make evolution perform better and with our growing population and friendly players I am more motivated than I have ever been to create quality content for you guys. I hope that you like what I have done for this months end publish. Also, please keep in mind that as with all of the work we do here on evolution these changes are by no means final or considered perfect upon release - We do our best to release heavily tested and the best quality content but sometimes changes are needed due to unforeseen circumstances.


HOTFIX AUGUST 28, 2013:

- Nightmares will no longer display themselves as invisible mount animations.
- Mef Rune (Gift of Life) now grants health returns based on weapons maximum damage. -> instead of being based on players maximum hit points.


Publish #09
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Paragon Artifact Recycling:
- Paragon Artifacts can now be recycled using the "Paragon Recycling Barrel" located through out the shard. (Credit: Keldon - For initial system design and script work!)

- Paragon Artifacts will be worth 1 Credit each which can now be used to purchase various items on the Vendor stones near the barrels.


Gold Panning System:
- Resource banks now hold 2-8 nuggets -> down from 4-8.

- Resource's regen time is now 15 - 60 minutes -> down from 10-20 minutes.


Token System:
- Players will no longer gain tokens from crafting. Tokens can STILL be gained by hunting various monsters.


Tokuno/Karate Belt System:
- Drop chances on karate belts has been increased from ALL monsters.

- Luck based drop chance increase has also been elevated to 15% -> up from 10%

- Spirits of Tokuno have begun manifesting themselves throughout tokuno as various creatures. (Higher Karate belt and item drop rates, but more difficult to defeat - Groups of 2+ recommended)

- Added 3 tokuno spirits, Demon Spirit, Earth Spirit and Dragon Spirit. Each with their own unique set of special abilities and traits.

- Added Champion Ninja's they are skilled in the art of ninjitsu and will use stealth and cunning to defeat their oppenents.


Misc Fixes/Additions:
- *Working!* Mailboxes have been added to the Evolution Dollar (ED) stone. Mailboxes can only be placed inside the boundaries of a player's house.

- Mailboxes come with a variety of options for the owner to use. Including the general security functions as well as the ability to allow others to look inside of it and/or drop items onto it.

- Options and Security menu's can be accessed by single clicking on the mailbox and selecting either the "options" or "set security" functions.

- Added Gargoyle deco vendor in Gargoyle city.

- Added undead gargoyle's to the surrounding area of gargoyle city (to be killed for currency to buy gargoyle deco)

- Added new Donation pet of the month: Colossus - The Colossus will stun his enemies and can absorb and deal large amounts of damage.

- Pet slot deeds now have a hard cap at a maximum of 10 slots

- Optimized Kyn Core and RunUO Core for 16-64 bit processor cores.

- One handed weapon deeds have been added to the ED stone so you will no longer need to page a GM to make your weapons one handed.

As always great changes!


I look forward to seeing what kind of stuff will be for sale on the artifact vendor stones.


I think these initial changes to the gold panning system are very much needed.

Any chance to get a bit more clarification on the gold panning resources you are talking about?

I think he is talking about the resource node.  Like when you mine you get X number of ore from a spot.  In gold panning you will get X number of nuggets.  He dropped the lower amount of nuggets that can spawn when the resource node refreshes.


IE when you pan at a spot before you would get 4-8 nuggets before it told you to move along, now you will get 2-8.

Was more so curious on the timer portion of that section.  Of course I don't gold pan so it's really not all that important to me, but was the only part I didn't quite follow all the way.

What is the estimated time for the update?  Not trying to rush anything, just wondering if I should go to work in the morning or not.

Thanks for great update. I have a question and i hope that at least this post is not going to get deleted.

What's going to happen with players who abused pet slot limit and now got over 10 slots? Leaving them as is would be like a reward for exploiting.

Your first post was deleted because I found it to be in bad taste.


In answer to your question - players with over 10 slots will be set back down to the cap. We will be dealing with these on a case by case basis. :)
