The Moya Fix

Due to the categorical nature of special monsters, a few small changes in the right (or wrong!) places can make a huge difference. Due to this, and the properties that many bosses share with a certain Desterrat Moya, a few bugs caused sweeping changes throughout the game. Over the last week, Rhubarb, Reens, and the class team have been hard at work debugging, finding, and fixing all of the changes the best they can!

The full changelog of fixes is as follows:

  • Ultra Carnax is firin’ his lazer once more
  • Undead Raxgore has warmed up and can counter attacks again, and will do so more frequently, but for shorter periods
  • Ultra Exos has been reminded of how to concentrate his chaos power to explode his foes
  • Drakath at /mountdoomskull has been reminded of his chaos powers
  • Blood Titan and Ultra Blood Titan have tapped into their bloodlines and regained their bloodrage powers once more
  • Trigoras phase 1 (Baby, Teen, Adult, and Ancient) will use all of their specials more evenly randomly now.
  • Trigoras phase 2 (Baby, Teen, Adult, and Ancient) has been reminded how to breathe fire
  • Moganth, Zellare, Udaroth, Cellot, and Desoloth at /desoloth have been reminded how to breathe fire
  • Desterrat Moya has regained the ability to stun players with his powers
  • Ultra Vordred in /epicvordred has regained his powers of darkness
  • Naga Baas in /orecavern has been reminded of some of its abilities
  • Khassandra has unlocked her hidden chaos lord powers
  • The French Horn Toaddragon has been taught how to play petrifyingly good music once more
