Blight Update 204 has been applied to the Blight Testing Shard on Friday, April 29th and includes the following additions, changes, and fixes.

AdditionsEdit

ChangesEdit

  • Drain Strike quest line (1 to 7) has been updated to have more of a storyline and provide experience consistent with those of other dragon ability quests. The quest will now be offered every 10 levels starting at level 15 to be more in line with the rating of the monsters being fought during the quest.
  • Eilen the Mage at the Mage Tower no longer worries about Icy Tokens. She will instead sell you her spell forms for coin.
  • Quest "Tower of Magery: Collect Icy Dire Wolf Claws" no gives you coin instead of Icy Tokens as a reward and will also give you XP now.
  • Quest "Assist Eilen the Mage With Her Icy research" no longer makes you wait 2 minutes for Androgos to finish reading his letter or preparing the bones. The quest now gives you more coin and XP as a reward.
  • Exsanguinate now can do more damage (min is still 200) and also gets a bonus to-hit.
  • Antolathes' Gift now lasts for 8 minutes, but has a 12 minute recycle.
  • Monster ability, Squall, now does Nature damage instead of piercing damage.
  • Monster ability, Thundering Strike, now does energy damage and has less chance of stunning.
  • Forest Skulk Elders, Shaman and Hunter now all have the proper weapon skills and should be more accurate and do more damage in combat.
  • Quest "Abigail's Outstanding Order (Repeatable)" now calls for cut amethyst instead of uncut and gives slightly less coin each trip.
  • Hardened Scales quests for levels 10 to 70 have been modified and adjusted to point players to a consistent style of mobs, provide better directions and better experience. They are available every 10 levels starting at level 10. (Gerix offers the level 10 quest, Zebeginia offers all others)
  • Primal Instant Heal quests for levels 10 to 70 have been modified and adjusted to point players to a consistent style of mobs, provided better directions and experience. Due to the level of monster in the challenges, the quests will now be offered starting at level 15 and every 10 levels there after.
  • All modified dragon ability quests (from both this patch and the previous one) for level 20 and up have had their keyword restriction removed. This means that dragons may work on more than one quest at a time so long as they meet requirements.
  • Primal Mastery quests (all levels) have been modified to give experience consistent with other dragon ability quests of the same level. Primal Mastery 8 and Primal Mastery 9 have been modified to require monsters more in line with the level of the character when they would be offered the quest.
  • Redbacked Tarantulas will now spawn at levels higher than the "smaller" Redbacked Spiders. Hatchlings now spawn at levels 51-55, and Redbacked Tarantulas spawn at 56-60.
  • Monk, Druid and Spiritist schools are now considered hybrid (semi-prestige) schools. Their pre-requisites have been updated as follows:
    • Monk requires the character to be at least level 10 in the Warrior school.
    • Druid requires the character to be at least level 10 in the Cleric school.
    • Spiritist requires the character to be at least level 10 in Mage school.
  • Updated Dragon's Gift quest line to improve directions and provide players the new experience amounts for completing the quests. The final quest in the series will no longer require players to return to Chiconis in between trips to the Islands of Fire and Ice.
  • Sand Beetle Carapace will now drop from any sand beetle while you are on the quest "Sslanis Militia: Sand Beetle Stomp"
  • Spiked Scales quest line from Rykhar has been modified to use a consistent type of mob, have a storyline, and use the same experience for completion as other dragon ability quests.
  • Mithril Bullion, Extended Fission Mobilizer, and Bronzed Proton Relocator no longer say they prevent teleport or recall (since they never did anyway).
  • Increased the minimum and maximum spawn of Shining Wisps in the Yew Forest slightly.
  • Increased the quantity of Blighted Shining Essence Residue that spawns in the Eastern Deadlands.
  • Updated Gold Rage quest line to improve directions to where to find mobs as needed and changed experience provided for quest completion to match that of other dragon ability quests.
  • Breath of Ice quest will now be offered to any adult dragon of at least level 40. The quest has also been modified slightly from the original to provide a bit more by way of storyline and better directions to where to go to obtain the required components.
  • Breath of Fire III quest will now be offered by Kelakhan to any dragon of at least level 60. The quest has also been updated to flow better with the overall storyline for the breath weapon quests and give better directions.
  • Corrected the minimum level requirement for quest "Spellcraft Mastery VI: Granite Spell Shards"
  • Dennison Jadefellow now properly has the Pawnbroker AI.
  • Breath of Lightning quest will now be offered by Kelakhan to any dragon of at least level 80. The quest has also been updated to flow better with the overall storyline for the breath weapon quests and give better directions.
