Added a Night Time mode for the Town:

  • Added a Settings option to toggle Hide Skilling Abort Button
  • When a guild member transfers an item to your vault you will now receive an in-game notification, similar to the market item sold message.
  • Added a /town PLAYER command for the group leader that can be used to shove an inactive player back to town. The player must be inactive for at least 2 minutes before this command can be used.
  • You can now add +5 stat points at a time by doing a ctrl-click on the +Stat
  • You can now create a Group Name when creating or editing your group.
    - Maximum length is 32 characters.
    - Group names can only be alphanumeric and spaces
    - You must have completed at least one master quest (per season) to use this, or have reset the ladder in the past. This counts for whatever character is currently being used, not your entire account.
    - All forum rules apply: No inappropriate content, or anything that violates site rules (flaming, harassment, etc)
    - If no group name is chosen (or valid, per the above criteria), the display will default back to the guild name if applicable.
  • Fishing in the Evil Well now has a chance to catch a monster
  • Fishing in the Evil Well now has a chance to catch an evil presence
  • Fishing in the Evil Well now has a chance to catch an item

  • Group lists now show Loading... to indicate loading, and "No Groups Available', as appropriate.
  • New groups will no longer pop up while you are skilling, but will wait to show until you have finished the current skill.
  • The group list will refresh periodically and only show currently available groups.
  • When experience is lost, the experience bar will now animate to a red color and back to green.
  • Assigning an ability to a hotkey is now down simply by hovering over the ability and pressing one of the three chosen hotkeys, rather than click+hotkey.
  • Help and Guides -> Magical Stats for Maps updated to add + % Stealth and + Evil Wells
  • When searching for players, there is now visual feedback to indicate loading, and when the list is complete or there are no players found.
  • For clarity, an error message is now displayed when attempting to search for groups while already in a group, as this is not allowed.
  • When you are disconnected, an overlay indicating this now appears and that the game is attempting to reconnect.

  • On the Stats window, the +Stat buttons and spacing around them has been increased on mobile.

Monster Changes:
  • Goocidic has a new ability: Acid Etch
  • Reduca has a new ability: Brainduction
  • Voltseeker has a new ability: Shocknesia
  • Magaton now has base ability: Deep Layers
  • Subsorber now has base ability: Sunspots
  • Walktopus has a new ability: Sandshuffle
  • Magneticrawler now has base ability: Pedipalpsis
  • Barkodile has a new ability: Bark Attack
  • Elephoerectus has a new ability: Roaring Blast
  • Debrivil has a new ability: Evil Eyes
  • Prowlion has a new ability: Suffering Succotash
  • Incapacitor has a new ability: Defensive Memory Loss
  • Shonark has a new ability: Sonic Gloom
  • Frigadoon has a new ability: First Snow
  • Sharfin has a new ability: Finado
  • Taga has a new ability: Hugnocate
  • Wyrmbat has a new ability: Ceiling Ambush

  • Fremlin has a new ability: Split Apart
  • Fremlin has a new ability: Too Hot

  • Enigmatic Emblem Glyphs now only apply to party members in the Catacombs
  • Comfrey use cooldown reduced by 75%
    Note: This reduces the cooldown afterusing it, not before. For instance, if you do a regular attack, you still have ~1s cooldown before you can use any item.
  • You can no longer /kick a player that is under an action timeout delay (paralyzed, attacking, etc)
  • The /kick command obeys the action timeout delay, so the leader can't use it under the same conditions as above
  • When catching a monster, evil presence, or item in the well, there is a chance it will break the well, same as throwing in a white item
  • As a result of the ability to customize your ability hotkeys, abilities are now used strictly as a toggle feature. You must now press and release the hotkey to activate the ability on your next attack. You can deactivate it by pressing the hotkey again.

Bug Fixes & Optimizations:
  • Fixed a very rare crash bug that could occur when a hardcore player dies in a group while being attacked by a multi-attack monster
  • Fixed a bug that would allow map treasure chests to spawn more items than intended
  • Fixed a bug where saving the settings would make the Go To Town button appear if in town.
  • When a player dies in a group, their reduced experience % will now properly update right away to the other players.
  • Fixed a potential rare crash bug when the server reloads config files for bi-weekly events.
  • Fixed a line wrap display issue on the minimum/maximum ranges on the Groups -> Find Players tab

* Make sure you access the game through the portal, as it has a new URL.
