Patch Notes: Version 1.80B


Dark Age of Camelot
Version 1.80b Release Notes
Darkness Rising
October 18, 2005



 - All sub-class abilities have been removed and points refunded back to players due to a bug in the sub-class ability selection process which allowed players to attain abilities beyond the design of sub-class limitations. Players may repurchase sub-class abilities at the base trainers, and abilities will now be given in accordance with the design of the sub-class system. Previously, players were able to purchase sub-class abilities from one class trainer, up to level 3, and then go to different class trainer and purchase sub-class abilities beginning at level 4, allowing them to skip levels 1 - 3 at that particular class trainer. This has been fixed.

 - Instant spells can no longer be cast while casting another spell with the same re-use timer.
 - Players who are Phase Shifted can no longer be Grappled.
 - Horses can no longer be sold if they are wearing armor or barding.

 - A number of locations that would cause players to be dismounted from a horse have been fixed.
 - A number of champion weapons have been adjusted to a more appropriate size. Previously, some champion weapons were too large.

 - Bonedancer subpets will now die if the commander pet is the target of Sever the Tether.

 - Players in Albion and Midgard that are currently not on the quest Conspiracy: Finding the Keeper, but helping other players that are on the quest will now be able to teleport out of the Demonic Prison by speaking with Anataeus (Alb) or Keeper Iraeda (Mid), upon rescuing them from the clutches of Geryon (Alb) or Rugak (Mid).

 - A modification has been made to Eternal Darkness and Eternal Hate in the Demonic Prison to allow for players who forgot to speak with Oonalo at the beginning of the dungeon to get credit for killing the relevant boss mob, in whichever order they choose.  Previously, a percentage of our players were forgetting to speak with Oonalo prior to killing either Hate or Darkness, inhibiting their ability to then progress with their quest, as well as their ability to get credit for killing the final boss mob of this dungeon.
