  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.

Monsters of Brawn ends

From Daniel Steelsoul,

 

A valiant effort was given by many a citizen in the fufillment of the task charged by Thais. Cyclops skewered by spears, goblins lay atop pile after pile, and many a shield broken by the Behemoth. However it was not enough to earn Wallace's training in how better to profit from hunting.

Though fear not! The need for Heroes is always on the horizon!


26.4.2021 -
Monsters of Brawn!



The King's Decree: Monsters of Brawn!

It has come to the sore attention of the realm that certain creatures which reside in the mountains and caves of Dura, those of brawn and brutishness are growing unruly, even dangerous to the preservation of man and kingdom. Therefore Thais, on the charge of the King has called for aid to deal with this growing force. He asks for the following to be slain and if it be done he will instruct his huntsman, Wallace, to train each citizen in how better to profit from their hunting.


Sleep be yours Durans, a great task is upon you.




From Thursday the 29th Server Save to Monday the 3rd Server Save it is asked by the King that all the citizens of the Realm aid  to slay:

u 1,750 Behemoths
u 15,000 Cyclops
u 3,000 Beholders
u 75,000 Dwarves (all types)
u 3,000 Goblins


For this, if completed, the King will grant a 10% loot buff for all monsters, including raids, from Tuesday the 4th Server Save to Tuesday the 11th Server Save to all Durans.


Good Luck,
Dura Staff

Rapine is coming for Dura

Be warned,


The warlords and chieftans of many a tribe and civilization sense weakness and despondency flood the realm of Dura; the time is ripe. In the night blades are sharpened and laces run through boots, rapine is coming. Will Dura last this evil?

 

 

Raids will occur at a far higher frequency this weekend.


When:   From Server Save Friday 11:00 EST to Server Save Monday 11:00 EST.
Where:  All the Realm.

 


Prepare,
Dura Staff

New changes to Dura today:

Greetings,

The following are some systemic changes that were patched into Dura today.

 



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

 

Secondly:    PvP Blessings have been implemented.


A PvP blessing functions the exact same as a PvE blessing except cost. 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". 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.

I hope with this you can see that we take cheating and cheaters seriously and will not accept them playing on Dura. Moreover I am sorry for what you personally and the community at large has had to endure due to this. We designed Dura so people could play a game, a good game.

A game is an artificial structure where opposing entrants agree to fictional rules and parameters, as opposed to physical laws, i.e. honour. Basketball does not work if one person walks on stilts and the other does not. Baseball does not work if instead of a pitcher there is a machine throwing the ball for one team. Football (soccer) does not work if there are three goalies for one team and not the other. Poker does not work if a player is allowed an extra card.

If one player or group of players (a team) decides to simply disregard the rules that all players at entry, which the majority of the time is the majority of entrees, agree upon then the game cannot exist and it will only be time before the impossibly challenged entrees will no longer volunteer to enter and the winners will move on because there is no one to play with. On MMOs it is similar, but even worse. Because the games aforementioned have small time limits, and the opponets change; whereas in an MMO the game goes on in perpetuity, cheating wearing it down to a nub.


For anyone who lost faith in Dura I apologize sincerely. My purpose when I started this years ago was to give you a game that would feel like the one you played when you were a kid. I hope with this and further actions we take your faith in Dura can be restored.

For those who have never cheated, I just want to say thank you, and I am grateful and I promise we will continue to work to bring you something worth your time. I will never allow cheating to reach such levels again.
