Alter Aeon server updates for Mar 09, 19
You should no longer be able to give things to dancing lights.
Added unique MSP/dclient sounds for crippling strike.
Splitting lapidary items should no longer accidently hide things in your
Soulsmithing should be a bit more forgiving with high level soulstones if
you’re wearing castlevel.
Help pages for spells now show if they can be channel cast.
The climb COMMAND has been deprecated. Players will automatically attempt to
climb when going through climb-flagged exits, in the same way players will
automatically swim when entering water rooms. The climb skill will still
determine how much movement you take and lag you incur when climbing. This
should help put players on all clients on equal footing when it comes to
autoclimb. This is complicated and there may be bugs. Please report any bugs
directly to Draak and Dentin.
Channel casting now allows you to modify certain mage spells by preceding
the spell name with a rune word:
‘Alu’ for slow, low-mana casting. ‘Alu’ casting is the default for channel
casting, so you don’t need to specify it.
‘Ort’ to add blunt-force blasting damage to spells.
‘Luk’ to focus damage spells into beams that slice into enemies. This is
a total transformation, as the spell retains none of its original
properties save its elemental damage type. The damage is formulated from
the amount of mana the spell uses, the level of the spell and the
caster’s level. The beams can be evaded.
The latter two runewords increase the mana cost and lag of the spells by
a modest amount. An example casting string might be:
ccast ort fireball target
All this is experimental, and subject to change or removal in the future.
