  April 29th Patch Notes...

 

April 29th Patch Notes II:                                                                    

 

 

 


u
Aleta Grav now works on all houses, all doors reset.

u Added descriptions to Outfit Scrolls.

u Fountain Package Item fixed.

u Elite Haste lowered.

u Furniture can now be destroyed inside PZ via weapon.

u Fixed Banshee Quest bugs.


u Invisibility Debug fixed.

u Client Debug desyncing character with monster on same tile fixed.

u Fixed two Rent System bugs.

u Furniture/Items are now breakable by weapons inside protection zone. Without protection zones furniture/items are not breakable by weapons.

u Activated new raids. Tier 2 and Tier 3.

u Changed Small Stones to recycle back into one's hand. This will be how they function until we implement "a hardened stone". Reasoning for this as well as a hardened stone is to allow all 4 vocations to comfortably train in their downtime; our players after all are not kids anymore. No sense in having to touch stones every 4 minutes if other vocations do not have to.

u Hellgate Mwall fixed.

u Amazon Camp Bug fixed.

u Lessened mana for conjure bolt from 70 to 60.

u Also 5 days of Premium Account were added to all accounts as compensation for the crashes. These crashes do not in anyway affect character progress. They only cause the map-floor to be reset meaning people's loot bags are lost.


u Using Sudden Death Rune requires Premium Account.

u Creating Sudden Death Rune requires Premium Account.

u Using Energy Wave requires Premium Account.

u Server-save now only occurs every 2 hour instead of 30 minutes

u Arrows now cost 2 Gold from NPCs

u Bolts now cost 3 Gold from NPCs

u Rules on Unfair Play Advantage have been updated. We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with them. These rules have been instituted after much thought on what fair play truly means for a long term healthy game experience for all players. As we always say Dura intends to be a real game for 10 years, after much thought we think these new rules support that vision going forward. They cover such topics as Account Selling/Buying, Gold Selling/Buying, and Account Sharing. https://dura-online.com/?durarules

April 29th Patch Notes I:...

April 29th Patch Notes I:                                                                                                                                            

 

u Knights have been patched today, the formula has been revised resulting in greater defense while lesser offense for the vocation.

u Paladins have been patched today, the formula has been revised resulting in more dynamic accuracy and damage based on distance from target.

u Added 'Slain of the Realm' in towns. This will give real time tracking of Slain Monsters for the realm at large when it is needed.

u Behemoth quota for Monsters of Brawn reduced from 2,000 to 1,750.

u Global reward for all citizens upon success of Monsters of Brawn raised from 5% loot buff to 10% loot buff for all monsters, including raids, from Tuesday the 4th Server Save to Tuesday the 11th Server Save to all Durans.

 
u Tier 4, Tier 3, and Tier 2 raids activated.
u Behemoth has received a loot buff.
u Giant Spider has received a loot buff.
u Dragon has received a loot buff.
u Orc Warlord has received a loot buff.
u Lich has received a loot buff.
u Vampire has received a loot buff.
u Orc Shamans summon snakes less.
u Deer, Sheep, and Rabbits no longer cause PZ.

 

u Break Chance for QUEST items has been raised substantially.

u Three Days of Premium Account has been given to all users due to the crash suffered by the Server on April 20th.

 

u Tier 4 and 3 Raids activated. Be on your guard.

u Uniform Spawn Rate. During all 24 hours of server cycle the rate of spawn will be the same.

u PvP Blessings Implemented. If one dies in PvE they will lose only PvE blessings. If one dies in PvP they will lose only PvP blessings. This means there is a total of 10 blessings. They are all acquirable from the normal 5 blessing NPCs. PvE blessings prices remain as they are now. PvP blessing prices are about half the price of PvE blessings. A PvE death means the last hit is by a monster. A PvP death means the last hit is by a player. To buy a PvP blessing from an NPC say "war blessing-keyword". To buy a PvE blessing say "blessing-keyword" This measure is part of the calm to the storm; after reflection we think this is best and the most fair for good gameplay, the original blessing system on Dura was designed more with PvE in mind, not PvP.

Note: If you already have blessings they are PvE blessings.

Note: It is impossible to lose both PvE and PvP blessings in the same death.

u Realm's Aid has been increased substantially. The impetus for this is as an effective anti-cheating counter measure. It will give honest players more gold to deal with those who cheat.
 
u New Raids, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 activated. Be on your guard.
 

 

u Experienced received by killing an Outlaw is dropped from 25% of the total experience to 0%.
u Hunters distance away from target has been decreased.

March 8th Patch Notes...

March 8th Patch Notes II:                                                                                                                                 

 

New Raids activated. They are in slightly vulnerable areas. Please pay attention to the Raid Messages as to where they are and what to expect.

-Added New System: Makes Raid Monsters not lureable past a certain point; the monster will return to its original location. This is designed so high level players cannot for example cannot lure giant spiders from -6 up to -1 or surface. Or lure Heroes which spawn in POH all the way to Ab'dendriel (yes, there is a way)

-New High Level Raids -- Tier 3 are being added, as well as Tier 2.

-Changed Banshee monsters. More huntable.

-Fixed PvP field damage to have greater damage in PvP and therefore more use. There was a bug previously.

-New elements (things) are added to the map.

-Crossbows and Bows are now One-Handed and use ammunition from hands and ammunition slot. You cannot wear a shield or other weapon if you are wearing a Bow or Crossbow.

-Fixed Rooking System, triggering whenever you hit level 5 in main you will be sent to Rook as a level 1 and no vocation.

-There was a small bug with PvP field damage after we patched it, it should work now.

 

-Fixed logging bug outside of Banshee Quest.

-Only remove soulbound from runes on death with less than 10x charges. To prevent abuse.

-Added a 5 minute idle warning as well as a 1 minute warning.

March 8th Patch Notes...

March 8th Patch Notes I:                           

New Dura Coins Scroll added to Webshop.

-Portal at Hellgate Exit removed. The other two exit points for players themselves or their items are now working.

-Changed multiple Raids

-Changed multiple Ambushes

-Soulbound Runes acquirable from a player corpse lowered from 100 to 40 to prevent abuse. We will possibly revisit this at some point.

-Changed Yelling range from 15~ to 30 (Both Players and Monsters).

-Great Energy Beam mana cost lowered.

-Energy Beam mana cost lowered.

-Giant Spider Changed. Poison Missile Lowered.

-Hero Changed. Ranged Damage Lowered.

-Black Knight Changed. Mechanics altered.

-Dragon Lord Changed. Removed Ranged DL and created new form.

-There were various keys around the map, which were daily spawns, that were being Power Abused. Instantly upon Server Save someone who already had the key would get the other making it impossible to gain access to the given area except by those who already possessed them; and the result is you are invincible without fear. This has been changed so the accessibility is now public until a solution is created to account for this form of abuse. I stress that there were many people doing this at many different locations; it was not an isolated incident.

Captain of the Guard on the frontlines


Greetings,



It seems some swell of fury and pride sweep across the commanders of every race of evil in Dura. Not content with seeing bloodshed from behind their ranks they move closer to see their enemies eyes become red with spatter.

Legendary Cyclops



During this event all monsters in Dura that are non-raid will have the frequency of being an Elite, and therealso a Legendary version, substantially raised. From rats to demons.


Start: Thursday Server Save August 5th 2021.
End: Monday Server Save August 9th 2021.


Regards,

Dura Staff

Compensation for Server Outage

Compensation for Rollback:



Due to the rollback suffered by the community earlier today we are giving 10 days of Premium Account to all player accounts. Also all accounts will be granted a 2 hour double-experience/skill/loot voucher and a 1 hour double-experience/skill/loot voucher which are soulbound to their account. There will also be a forthcoming event in compensation of this misfortune.


Soulbound Voucher: They cannot be traded or used by another account. Each can be activated at any time within 10 days, meaning until the server save of August 14th. Once activated, it will expire when it's time limit is over with no way to pause the time limit. You will find it on your account when you login on the Server Save of August 5th 2021 -- EST Time Zone. Vouchers cannot stack, i.e. be used at the same time, so do not use them at the same time.

There is no good solution in these situations. The best is for us to work hard so it does not happen again, this is what we will do. Thank you for your patience as we improve.


Deepest Regards,
Dura Staff

Edit: We have made changes, check above to see them.



4.8.2021 -
Server Outage

 

Greetings,

 

A major issue has occurred with our physical server machine resulting in a complete loss of power to our server. Unfortunately in extremely rare power-loss scenarios like this, it is not possible for the game to save itself and a rollback is required. The issue has now been resolved.


Dura will be rolled back to the state of the previous server save 03/08/21. Unfortunately it is not possible in this case to do a "minor rollback" as too many elements of the game would become out of sync, resulting in unfairness, for example the possibility of items being cloned - this would be unacceptable.

Please accept our deepest apologies for the frustration and inconvenience we know this has caused.
Announcement for community wide compensation forthcoming.


Regards,

Dura Staff

Bulletin!

Concerning the New Content.



We at Dura have discussed a few items that have cropped up concerning the new content and we believe they should be shared.

1)  Anything that is discovered on the Test Server regarding 'new content' is as likely to confuse and hinder your progression as help you; we recommend always approaching Dura as if you have no experience with the test server. A car will confuse a customer if it is shown when in the factory before tires are put on.

2) We reiterate the original message in the announcement regarding the New Content: "New custom content has been added to Dura."


Thank you and Good Luck
Dura Staff

The first Chess Tournament of Dura!

You are cordially invited to attend the very first Chess Tournament on Dura!

A single elimination tournament spanned over a few days with the chance to become the Chess Grandmaster of Dura. There are prizes for the top three players.


We must warn each and every one of you beforehand that we do not accept cheating/inappropriate behavior etc.  in any form. Doing such will result in enforcing the in-game rules and added tournament rules, leading to account deletion. 

 


Do you think you have what it takes to become the number one chess player on Dura? Do you think you can outplay your opponents and make it all the way to #1?

YOU WILL HAVE TILL THIS SUNDAY, July 25th 18:00EST, (7 HOURS AFTER SS) to register your invitation to the event, any registrations after that will not count. In an event someone may resign before the tournament starts, there will be an announcement and someone may take the spot.


Sign-up by messaging any of the Gamemasters in Dura or in Discord. If you have trouble reaching one you can do so in-game by registering via CTRL + R.

Once accepted, if you have Discord, a new role and channel appears.
