    September 2017 Patch Notes


    FIXED TALISMAN DROP ISSUE
    FIXED MILITIA MOUNTS
    FIX FOR PORTAL FRAGMENTS

    FIXES FOR CRYSTAL WORKBENCHES
    FINISHED CRYSTAL FRAGS GENERATION

    ALLOW MINING OF PORTAL CRYSTALS
    UPDATED TINKER MENU
    ADDED PROGRESS FOR PORTAL FRAGMENTS
    FIX FOR ETTINS ON IDOC
    MISC TAMING AND PROVOCATION FIXES
    FIXED PARTY AGGRESSION ISSUES
    BASE POTION CLEANUP
    NEW CHAMPION SPAWN ADDED (ORC)
    PROVOCATION FIX
    SERVER-CRASH FIX
    MORE PORTAL FRAGMENT CHANGES

    REMOVED PARAGON-ING PREVIOUS TAMES
    BUILD CLEAN UP
    ADDED DISPENSER

    MADE IT SO EVERY ITEM DROPPED ON A FALLEN(IDOC) HOUSE HAS A 50% CHANCE AT BECOMING OVER-WORLD LOOT, AND 50% CHANCE OF THAT ITEM DROPPING ON AN ETTIN WHICH SPAWNS AS THAT HOUSE FALLS.
    FOR NOW ON- EACH ITEM IN AN IDOC (IN DANGER OF COLLAPSING HOUSE) WILL HAVE A 50% CHANCE AT BEING FORWARDED TO ANY AND ALL OVER WORLD MONSTER SPAWNS. OVER-TIME THIS MEANS YOU MAY KILL A MONGBAT AND OBTAIN A MAJOR ITEM FROM THESE IDOCS.
    We will closely monitor this system and watch as it develops, after almost years of watching idocs this is the now ultimate conclusion to handling idoc loot. In any case loot will fall at EVERY idoc, but there's a 50% chance that some of the loot will be put into the over-world drops for everyone as a whole. We hope this will balance things in the future and that everyone will have an equal right to idoc loot no matter what their game style is.

    Can anyone help a confused player out here?

    Whats the difference (and use) for the following items:
    • PORTAL FRAGMENTS
    • CRYSTAL FRAGS
    • PORTAL CRYSTALS
    Also what are PORTAL CRYSTALS mined from? The huge crystals inside RDA's?
    And one more question about IDOC loot on general worldspawn: does that include animals, wandering healers, escort npcs, vendor npcs, ...? In the examples Shane posted in http://discord.uoforever.com, I also noticed they get overweight. So I'm assuming secured containers are distributed as one and their contents isn't spread out over multiple mobs?

    So to clarify, are the loot dispensers going to be on the mobs that get idoc loot? I hope so otherwise a a majority of the redistributed items will go undiscovered. Same thing that has ended up happening with stealable rares. I hope at least that champ spawn mobs are excluded from the system too. So many of those mobs go completely unchecked for loot.

    I would guess the loot goes to spawn that already exists out there ...? So maybe the only question would be would it go to champ spawn that's already up?

    Did you read the notes? ;)

    Combining the two paragraphs:

    MADE IT SO EVERY ITEM DROPPED ON A FALLEN(IDOC) HOUSE HAS
    • A 50% CHANCE AT BECOMING OVER-WORLD LOOT WHICH IS FORWARDED TO ANY AND ALL OVER WORLD MONSTER SPAWNS. OVER-TIME THIS MEANS YOU MAY KILL A MONGBAT AND OBTAIN A MAJOR ITEM FROM THESE IDOCS.
    • AND 50% CHANCE OF THAT ITEM DROPPING ON AN ETTIN WHICH SPAWNS AS THAT HOUSE FALLS.

    Ok so that answers my second concern. The primary concern I still have is that the loot just goes un-noticed a majority of the time. Having a distinct box would make it more noticeable, especially for new or casual players.

    If a plain bag with some nice loot will get left behind 99% of the time. Searching every pack and pouch on every kill would be mind numbingly boring.

    We talked about this, can't do it cause of AFK looters / able to script loot just those items.

    That is a good point. However, we are talking about any overland mob. Someone AFK would have a pretty hard time getting their character to run around, killing, and auto-looting. Yeah they could camp one spot with several weak mobs that spawn but that still a pretty low chance that those mobs are the ones that will ever get IDOC loot.

    One idea I had as an alternative to having a special box or chest is to have the corpse sparkle or change colors when IDOC loot is distributed to it upon death. Alternatively there could be some message that says something like, "This creature seems to have dropped some extraordinary items!" when you kill a monster that gets items added to it's loot.

    There will still be plenty of items sunk with this system, even if corpses drop special containers or are flagged in some manner to indicate IDOC loot was added to their corpse.

    Over world I guess does not mean overland spawn. Heard a few different people pull stuff from mobs in dungeons, even at a champ where they were lucky to notice an Easter basket.

    It means every single spawn for mobs. In dungeons and on land, every single mob. Could be from a MIB, a RDA, a Tmap, a mongbat in the wild or any mob in any dungeon.

    Hello I am slightly newer but have a bit of info. Grain of salt.

    "Fragments" aka RDA Portal Fragments are afiak from T-Maps (Ive personally had from Lvl 4+and up) not sure of any other spawns could be more.

    One of the other two youre talking about are MINED in RDAs. Not sure which. You use them to make crystal work bench (which you use to make slayer armor).

    The other is probably the fragments you get off MOBs (i.e. anything in Destard) you put them in a Shrine nearby in the dungeon (if empty). When full a boss spawns. When the boss dies he drops good stuff and sometimes leaves presents in the BANKS of people who put crystals in his shrine to spawn him
