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.

 

-Fixed logging bug outside of Banshee Quest.

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

By the princess, Theripat

By the princess, Theripat

It is in the place of my namesake I must spend at least what is worth two days of each lunar quarter. It is without the sun here, which I think seems strange since our goddess is one of the sky but I do trust the priests. But the dark surely is much to bear, though the glow from the water and the torchlight does help and some of our plants even give of a faint show of light. I am told it is my honor to tend the plants of Theristrut, as beset by my birth. Milk must be attended to the leaves, honey to the soil, and water down along the stalk. This being a solitary chamber brings solitary company at time but luckily my maidens as friends are allowed to come each 3rd day. Although I hear in time this will not be a lone place, there are talks of expanding into other chambers, even for my distant descendant to make this place his house of death, so that it may be blessed by both god and god-king. Sounds dreadful, but I pay it no mind, I simply look forward to the end of the season when I able to leave this place.

[cramped and small below is written]

By the way there is this lovely young officer who has been stationed here to watch me from my father's guard. I have seen him share eyes with me though he quickly darts those black beads away in embarrassment. However once when I caught him and I giggled with my voice first and my eyes second I saw the curl of a smile rise on his face.

 

What other stories, tales, and histories await in Ankrahmun...

Happy Easter!


Dura's hopping back in to Easter!

 

 


Wabbit Season!

You know how those furry cuddly wuddly fuzzy wuzzy little creatures can mate mate mate and duplicate. Well get ready for rabbits galore across the forests and towns of Dura; (whispering) and they just might have some goodies better than carrots inside. And there just might be a prize for the person who kills the most wabbits this season.


Easter Egg Hunt anyone? Or maybe Easter Egg Riddle Hunt?

Get ready for games, fun, and events the whole weekend as Gamemasters and Community Managers will have impromptu moment to moment fun for everyone. Prizes of all shapes and sizes for puzzles of all flavors and wises.


And wait a minute.. what about the Easter Bunny?

I've heard of him before I swear. Well he just might pop in, and he might hop around the land without end and he just might be a bit bigger than you expected. I wonder what he carries with him as he hops down the bunny trail?



When is this colored egg banaza happening?
Server save Friday April 15th to Server save Monday April 18th.

 
Bouncing along the bunny trail,

Compensation for Rollback

Greetings,

Due to the rollback Dura suffered for the first time in a year, we will, as previously  announced be compensating everyone with the following:

Two activatable Scrolls that give the character who uses it double Experience, double Skill advancement, double Magic Level advancement, and double Loot for 2 hours and 1 hour. These scrolls cannot be used at the same time. Each is soulbound to the account activated on, meaning it cannot be traded. To receive the scroll enter the command "!claimscroll" while logged in. To activate the scroll a character clicks it, or uses it. Understand you are allotted one '2 hour' and one '1 hour' scroll per account -- when you enter "!claimscroll" the scroll will be soulbound to that account. Any character on the account can use it. It cannot be used by other accounts. Upon use the time-limit of the scroll will tick down without being able to be paused even if you log out or die.

These scrolls will be claimable starting the Server Save of April 12th.
These scrolls will not be claimable starting the Server Save of April 25th.


These scrolls will expire 14 days after they are released, on the server save of April 25th.


Regards,
Dura Staff
