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.

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

Accursed Edron Ruins



My General,

Well are you doing managing the Isle colony, and therefore expanding our Kingdom, it is a pride to our people and to our rule. It will not be long until the forests bring fresh timber and the mines fund handsomely with their many riches, and it will be safe for many families to raise their children. However the ruins in the North, those blackguard soldiers of ours, it is a very blot on our kingdom, an insult to my name, and a stain on your cloak. Those men turned on us and live now in that dank and lowly place with those unholy fiends and the dark minions that surround them. I need you now to summon men, valkyrish women if need be --- new heroes, to send a message so severe and thralling that not an ear it does not reach through all the realm. Kill, pillage, destroy, sunder, whatever need be done to remove the very thing from this world. That accursed place is to be ripped apart and flung into oblivion, it is too long sat free and we TOO LONG IDLE!

I promise if you succeed I will avail you of a Dwarf, by the name of Duria, an expensive hire indeed but worth it. He will teach you how better to use your weapons of battle and even make the very weapons stronger.

Dictated by the King,
Scribe,
Crispin




From Saturday the 29th January Server Save to Wendesday the 2nd February Server Save it is upon the honor of the citizens of the kingdom to slay:

u 5,000 Heroes
u 7,000 Hunters
u 10,000 Demon Skeletons
u 15,000 Wild Warriors


For this, if completed, all skills will be gained 12.5% faster from Thursday the 3rd February Server Save to Thursday the 10th February Server Save for all Durans.
Also, if completed, all Durans will have a 7% skill increase from Thursday the 3rd February Server Save to Thursday the 10th February Server Save.

As an example: If one, a Paladin, has 100 distance, 90 shielding, and 20 magic one's skills would automatically be 107, 96.3 (rounded down), 21.4 (rounded down).




Prepare yourselves,
Dura Staff

Cold Waters of the North

Greetings,

Because of the recent downtime sustained by our players Dura is going to compensate everyone with 3 days of Premium Account as well as moving up our next scheduled event:


The Cold Waters of the North have flown down through the lands of Dura. Bringing with them an abundance of life-giving properties: nutrients, minerals, rich sediments, and migrations bringing new sources of foods. The World of Dura, and thus the creatures and beasts that inhabit it drink deep and find themselves with a freshness and vitality that only comes once a year. With rich coats and white eyes the creatures of Dura walk through a world never so full. Whomever ventures into that world must be doubly cautious.




From Saturday, January 15th's Server Save, until Wednesday, January 19th's Server Save, the Lands of Dura will find itself very different in your eyes. All Creatures will have Double Life (2x Health). And, as is natural, they will have proportionate Experience and Loot. It will not affect Raid Creatures. As well there just may be a few changes to the Landscape itself.



Farewell,
Dura Staff

Dura Temporarily Down

Greetings,


As of 15:30EST: Dura is temporarily down while resolving difficulties. We'll be updating you here as we know more. We should be online within an hour or less most likely.

Update: As for now the game seems to be running and stable without difficulty. We will let you know more when we can.

There will be compensation for this once it is resolved.

Dura Staff

Series of Announcements

Greetings Durans,

We have a series of announcements for you today.



A.) The punishments for "Rule 1.) Unofficial Software" and "Rule 2.) Multi-Client, Multi-Computer" have been changed from "Permanent Deletion" to "Permanent Deletion of all known accounts".


B.) In the past Gamemaster Discretion and License was used to both punish players who went against the spirit of Dura though it was not codified in the rules as well as provide leniency and nuance where it seemed suitable and appropriate. This will no longer be the case. Going forward Dura's policy on Rule Enforcement will be a literal and technical interpretation of the rules. Violating a rule whether by accident, ignorance, or bad luck is still the player's responsibility. Please take heed of this as it is our best effort to forewarn you. This change is effective immediately.

Gamemaster Discretion/License will still be exercised to punish players who go against the spirit of Dura's rules, acknowledging that not every possible violation can be covered by a specific rule.

This does not change that each and every case of a Rule Violation can be appealed and reviewed, and by extension that a given punishment can be altered or reverted after review if it is deemed an error has been made.

 
C.) Our webshop next Server Save may have a treat for everyone.

 

 

Regards,
Dura Staff
