Bug Fixes:

  1. Ragnar has been informed of the need to update his information now.  (Upgrade Bonus button goes to correct DNs now)
  2. So has Drew Dreschel. (FB button works again)
  3. Dage Birthday items (seasonal) removed from permanent shops for now.
  4. Typos!  Typos!  More typos!  And a couple more typos too.

Art Fixes:

  1. Sanctified Wings OnMove has been updated to be more wing-like.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Cyclops Warlord in /mobius was pulled for two reason.  It is not used in any storyline quest originating in this map.  Because the map is low level, and this is a boss room, it was killing players who only have AoE classes. He is where he belongs, in /faerie.
  2. Pets with CC parts break. There isn’t a way we can fix them reverting to their base colours when you change rooms at this time.   
  3. On a related note to that many pets do have animations, but are not actual battle pets.  Battle pets are clearly marked as battle pets in the item description.  You may also refer to the full list of battle pets located on the AQW Wiki. BATTLE PETS LIST.
  4. DoomLord’s Rune is where it was intended to be at.  See THIS POST.

http://www.aq.com/lore/guides/BugReportFAQ

Bug Fixes:

  1. Akriloth in /aqlesson now has a portrait. (He didn’t previously because Akky was supposed to be the biggest, meanest dragon who ever lived, so you weren’t supposed to know his actual size.)
  2. Fall Dryad Pet has been moved back off you a bit.
  3. Crusader Cloak has been reduced to 1 layer when moving.
  4. Dreadnought's Bank Vault hitbox has been made the size of the item.  Now you actually click on it no matter where you click on it.  (yes that does make sense!)
  5. How you obtain the Loremaster houses (other than the tent) had to be revamped.  The “upgraded” ones are now on quests.
  6. Book of Lore story entry for Poison Mistess now takes you to the proper map.
  7. Various typos.  Always more typos!  
  8. Zuthier has been convinced that you can do both sides of the storyline again, and is no longer holding the Solaris shop hostage.  Her back button works now as well.

***Special note for Mobius - Once you have completed the storyline and ended the chaorruption, the map will revert to normal for you, no more purple rooms. 

***Special Note for Battleontown - Warlic's Cutscene #3 has been fixed, but will go in later when Daimyo's birthday is removed. 

Art Fixes:

  1. Lunar BlazeBinder Hair has been brushed to be sleeker.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Drakonnan Armor skin (arms and legs) not being CC is because that is not skin.  It’s yellow tights under the armour.  (Think Superman outfit but in yellow)
  2. Fishing mini-game is not affected by boosts because this one is coded differently to be able to give the fun game ranks as well as the actual rank.

  4. Renegade ShadowSlayer female morph helms. We brought in a better makeup artist for the eyeshadow and jaw contouring. 

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Dark DragonGuard set.  As the name states, it’s Dark.  This is exactly how it was intended to be.  See also Bug, Opinion or Engine Limitation.

  3. Cutscene at /ravinetemple no longer dumping you in a blank room.
  4. Portal in /twilight now sends you to the /nexus again.
  5. Typos.  Always typos!  MORE TYPOS!

Art Fixes:

  1. Helms from Void Dragonlord bonus package fixed.
  2. Female Void Dragonlord fixed.
  3. Slayer Recruit's and Noble Recuit’s helm fixes to put chin piece in place.
  4. Human looking Aria in the Pet Store in Battleontown has regained her mouth and stopped giving people the evil eye. (Which version you see depends on where you are in the story)
  5. Gravelyn in /gravestrike and /shadowstrike has been convinced to stop flirting.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Moonstone Cultist armour is non-standard.  It has a skull head.  The neckline is shaped for that head, not for when you equip a morph helm.
  2. OverSoul Paladin is also a non-standard armour.
  3. Enchanted Void Aura Cape, Enchanted Void Cape, Enchanted Void Dragon Cape - we cannot make the green fur CC as there is simply no available options to set the CC to.  Anything it could be set to would make the same colour as something else and that is not how it was intended to be.

This is exactly the way Milton sent the file, so it will have to remain as is.  See this Design Notes post for more information about this issue.

Bug fixes:

  5. Various typos.

Not Fixed & Why:

  1. Shielded DragonKnight’s shield - this is a non-standard armour.
  2. Crows Team male purple part showing near shoulder area is intentional. It’s part of the shoulder pad.  Female doesn’t have it because she doesn’t have shoulder pads.

Since I've run out of idea for the Extra section and haven't been getting a lot of questions, it will now be swapped out for the Not Fixed section.  This will not include any reports that need someone other than Reens or myself to fix them as those get sent to the person who needs to look into them.

Bug fixes:

  1. Gold boost on Rainbow Starsword and Dual Rainbow Starsword fixed.
  2. Removed rare items from Darkblood War Merge shop.
  3. Icewind War no longer locking you out of the boss room.
  4. Bulletproof Blob and Locked n' Loaded Blob fixes refixed.
  5. Caladbolg (dagger) renamed to Dual Caladbolg.
  6. Agaea in /artixpointe is now a Gear Vendor instead of a Weapons Vendor.
  7. New Drakath Epic Armor character page badges that were showing incorrectly should all be picked up now.

 

Patch Notes Extras - This 'n' That

Elemental Dracomancer face on the character portrait is a dragon because your true form when using this class is a dragon.  The human is the disguise.  

Dreameater Armour female skin tone not being CC is intentional.  This is how Tana meant for it to be.  The armour itself has no ear, so if you use a helm that did not come with the set and an ear is showing, it will be your skin tone.  This is not a bug.  

Helms with extra long hair not alway showing the back part is part engine limitation and part client side graphics.  These helms use a layer that did not exist when the game models were first created.  This means there will be issues with it from time to time that we cannot correct currently.  Mostly, it causes the longer part on the hair which goes behind the player to not show up.

Character Page Models are a bit wonky because of sizing issues.  It’s the reason capes appear slightly off, and pets do not appear where they do in the game.

Fuzzy or distorted backgrounds on high resolution. This is a bit of a tradeoff.  In many of the high traffic areas or where lots of small details were needed, bmp images were used for the backgrounds to save on lag.  We do know that at some of the larger screen sizes and resolutions, they don’t look as sharp.  But the amount of lag saved still makes it worth it.

House Spaces - The new expanded cap for house spaces is in effect on both PTR and old servers, but you can only purchase above 40 on the PTRs.  If you purchase spaces on the PTRs and place items there, they will show when you go back to the old servers.  You can also place items on old servers once you have purchased the spaces on the PTRs.  This is an incentive to get people to test there.

Extras! -  Tell me what you want to know!

Hi again!  So most of these extras have been based on the reports we get, and why something is the way it is.  This week, I want to do something a little different.  This week, I’m asking for ideas on what types of questions you guys always had about things.

Is there something specific you always wanted to know about?  Shoot me a tweet at @Cemaros_AE with  your questions.  

I’m not going to be able to answer the questions individually as they come in, but what I will do is collect them and answer them in future Extras.  

Sound like a plan?  Excellent!  Send me those questions!

  1. Queen Victoria in Swordhaven Castle no longer rolls her eye at you.
  2. LOTS of typos.

 

Extras! -  Bits & Pieces

Hey again!  Yes, it was a really slow week on bugs.  That’s a good thing, isn’t it?  So time to toss out a few things that weren’t enough to make their own post up.

The Super-Fan Swag Token A was AC tagged this weekend, while the B, C and D ones were not.  This was on purpose.  The tag was placed on the A tokens for use in tracking when they are turned in.  Since only the A tokens can be turned in for rep quests, these are the only ones which need to be tracked.

And now for some real odds & ends things about common reports and why details are important.  

Weapon doesn’t fit in hand  -  This should be checked with more than one armour.  There’s a very good chance that it isn’t the weapon at fault, it’s the armour.  The reverse may be true when reporting an armour not grabbing the weapon right.

Daggers with onAttack animations  -  Only the dagger in the main hand will have an animation.  This isn’t an art issue, it’s an engine issue.  Since you are not really carrying two daggers, only the “real” one will transform.  The other one is there just for looks.

Scrolls/Potions (equipped consumables) not working  -  This is another of those wonky things that happens when you sneak new engine level content in.  Sometimes, the scrolls just refuse to cooperate until you relog after obtaining them.  We are looking into making this work better in the rewrite.  

“Backwards” swords  -  Some swords are meant to be held with the blades behind the body.  These swords will usually (but not always!) have the word “Reversed” somewhere in the name.  These are not bugs.  
Some swords are sent in with the file reversed.  This is kind of common due to how they are made.  We don’t always catch that these swords are upside down (or even backwards!) in testing for various reasons like small details, or the name of it.  These may be bugs.

The Shadow Legacy of Nulgath Hair has been added to Dirtlicker’s Shop for those who don’t want the face of Shadow Legacy of Nulgath covered.

 

Extras! -  Bug, Opinion or Engine Limitation?

Hi again!  So this week was another one that there wasn’t any one thing that came up, so let’s talk about the types of reports that come in.

Reports will generally fall into one of 3 categories.  So is it a bug, an opinion, or an engine limitation?

A lot of art reports are not actually bugs, as in nothing is really broke.  They are opinions on what someone thinks it should look like, or something isn't working precisely right due to engine limitations.  An example of this would be if a hat has a feather in it.  A bug would be the feather is upside down, or not attached to the hat.  An opinion would be “the feather isn’t tilted far enough”.  And an engine limitation would be “Why can’t I put my hat on my hand?”.

Bugs will be fixed as soon as we can after the report is confirmed.  Opinions will usually be taken up with the artist if possible and since they made it, their opinion is usually final.  Engine limitations are something we may try to work around as we can, but generally, you just aren’t going to be able to put that hat on your hand.

  1. Magical Marshmallow Cheep & Basketful of Dyed Eggs will drop now.
  2. Dark Void Monk no longer has an identity crisis when it gets near a Void Monk of Nulgath.
  3. Mystic Pencil of Endless Scribbles now has a Dual Wield Drop Off entry.
  4. Dark Harbinger Blade & Dual Dark Harbinger Blades - since the code has been uncooperative on these since release, they have now been changed to click-to-transform.  Click the HILT to change now.
  5. Dark Box quest updated to reflect move from Twilly to Valencia.
  6. Clover Fields minigame now announcing clearly that it is Legend Only.
  7. SDKA method of getting Legion Doomknight has returned.
  8. Various typos.

  • Sword of Broken Dreams
  • Doom Souleater Warrior (see the Extras for this week too)
  • Ebil Ninja & Rose Ebil Ninja
  • Void Ripper (armour and helm)
  • ShadowFlame Champion

 

Extras! -  Non Standard Armour Set Items

Since there were some returning and some new ones recently, let’s talk about sets of items that go on Non Standard Armours.

We’ve already gone over Non Standard Armors but they aren’t always super obvious to spot.  A slight alteration of the head shape or size, a reposition on the arm, making the knees bend the other way, being a skeleton … these are all examples of non standard.  

When these pieces are made, the accessories that come with them are designed to fit on them, and probably won’t fit on the standard template.  This is why you get things like Face of Conquest helm, which doesn’t cover the whole face on a standard armour.  This isn’t something that can be fixed because it isn’t broken.  Not all items are designed to be worn with everything.  And if we resize it or change the shape of it or reposition it, then it no longer fits with the set it was meant to go with.

So in short, if it fits with the set the artist sent in, it isn’t a bug.  It’s an easter egg!

***The quest to obtain Dage’s 2018 Collection character page badge is located on the Deadly Harbinger Blade Pet which is found in the chest shop.

***The Paragon Helm House Shop is located in the Curio Shop in Battleontown for those with the March Tier 2 badge/upgrade.
