The Autumn Patch 2010 was released on the September 22, 2010, officially announced here.
New PvP features
- Assisted Kill: If you help to trap a person or paralyze another player who dies, this will be counted as an assisted kill. It will be displayed in your kills list as well as in the victim's character death list, but it will not have any effects on any skull limits.
- Fair Fight Rules: If you get killed and at least 40% of the damage dealt within the last 60 seconds came through PvP damage, the death penalty on level and skills will be reduced according to a certain formula.
- PvP-Blessing: This blessing can be bought at any temple NPC and costs the same as a regular blessing. If you are killed while having this blessing and at least 40% of the damage dealt within the last 60 seconds came through PvP damage, you will not lose your regular blessings and its AOL. Does not count for red or black skulled players.
- Revenge Skull: For 7 days after an unjustified death, the victim sees an orange skull whenever they meet their killer or killers. This means that he can attack and kill the player character marked with an orange skull justifiably. Yet, he will still receive a PZ block and a yellow skull for attacking an orange skull.
- Swapping Position If Trapped: If you receive PvP damage and are unable to move to any of the squares around you because of a trap, you will get the ability to swap position with your trappers, under certain circumstances.
- PvP Stairhopping Delay: After changing floors, for example by going up or down ladders, you will be able to attack other player characters within the first 2 seconds, but only with single directed attacks.
- PZ On Demand Fix: If there is a stack with player characters in it, all player characters will be displayed on the battle list regardless of their position in a stack. On Open and Hardcore PvP, all player characters even deep down in a stack can perform all actions.
This patch introduced some new achievements. Some are related to completed Outfits.
|Alumni||6||✓||✗||You're considered a first-rate graduate of the Magic Academy in Edron due to your pioneering discoveries and successful studies in the field of experimental magic and spell development. Ever considered teaching the Armageddon spell?|
|Aristocrat||4||✓||✗||You begin your day by bathing in your pot of gold and you don't mind showing off your wealth while strolling the streets in your best clothes - after all it's your hard-earned money! You prefer to be addressed with 'Your Highness'.|
|Bad Timing||2||✗||✓||Argh! Not now! How is it that those multifunctional tools never fail when you're using them for something completely trivial like squeezing juice, but mess up when you desperately need to climb up a rope spot with a fire-breathing dragon chasing you?|
|Berserker||3||✗||✗||RAWR! Strength running through your body, your heart racing faster and adrenaline fueling your every weapon swing. All in a little bottle. No refund for destroyed furniture. For further questions consult your healer or potion dealer.|
|Bluebarian||2||✗||✓||You live the life of hunters and gatherers. Well, especially that of a gatherer, and especially of one who gathers lots of blueberries. Have you checked the colour of your tongue lately?|
|Brutal Politeness||6||✓||✗||What is best in life? To crush your enemies. To see them driven before you. And to maybe have a nice cup of tea afterwards.|
|Commitment Phobic||2||✗||✓||Longterm relationships are just not for you. And each time you think you're in love, you're proven wrong shortly afterwards. Or maybe you just end up with the wrong lover each time - exploited and betrayed. Staying single might just be better.|
|Cookie Monster||1||✗||✓||You can easily be found by anyone if they just follow the cookie crumb trail. And for you, true love means to give away your last cookie.|
|Cursed!||3||✗||✓||The wrath of the Noxious Spawn - you accidentally managed to incur it. Your days are counted and your death inevitable. Sometime. Someplace.|
|Demonbane||6||✓||✗||You don't carry that stake just for decoration - you're prepared to use it. Usually you're seen hightailing through the deepest dungeons leaving a trail of slain demons. Whoever dares stand in your way should prepare to die.|
|Demonic Barkeeper||3||✗||✗||Thick, red - shaken, not stirred - and with a straw in it: that's the way you prefer your demon blood. Served with an onion ring, the subtle metallic aftertaste is almost not noticeable. Beneficial effects on health or mana are welcome.|
|Do Not Disturb||1||✗||✓||Urgh! Close the windows! Shut out the sun rearing its ugly yellow head, shut out the earsplitting laughter of your neighbour's corpulent children. Ahhh. Embrace sweet darkness and silence.|
|Exemplary Citizen||4||✓||✗||Every city should be proud to call someone like you its inhabitant. You're keeping the streets clean and help settling the usual disputes in front of the depot. Also, you probably own a cat and like hiking.|
|Fool at Heart||3||✓||✗||And remember: Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig.|
|Free Items!||3||✗||✓||Yay! Finders keepers, losers weepers! Who cares where all that stuff came from and if you had to crawl through garbage piles to get it? It's FREE!|
|Godslayer||4||✓||✗||You have defeated the Snake God's incarnations and, with a final powerful swing of the snake sceptre, cut off his life force supply. The story of power, deceit and corruption has come to an end - or... not?|
|Gold Digger||4||✓||✓||Hidden treasures below the sand dunes of the desert - you have a nose for finding them and you know where to dig. They might not make you filthy rich, but they're shiny and pretty anyhow.|
|Happy Farmer||1||✗||✓||Scythe swung over your shoulder, sun burning down on your back - you are a farmer at heart and love working in the fields. Or then again maybe you just create fancy crop circles to scare your fellow men.|
|Heartbreaker||1||✗||✓||Trust? Love? Faithfulness? Pah! Antiquated sentiments. As long as you have fun, you do not mind stepping on lots of hearts. Preferably while wearing combat boots.|
|Homebrewed||1||✓||✓||Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum - homebrewed, of course, made from handpicked and personally harvested sugar cane plants. Now, let it age in an oak barrel and enjoy it in about 10 years. Or for the impatient ones: Let's have a paaaarty right now!|
|Hunting with Style||6||✓||✗||At daytime you can be found camouflaged in the woods laying traps or chasing big game, at night you're sitting by the campfire and sharing your hunting stories. You eat what you hunted and wear what you skinned. Life could go on like that forever.|
|I Need a Hug||2||✗||✗||You and your stuffed furry friends are inseparable, and you're not ashamed to take them to bed with you - who knows when you will wake up in the middle of the night in dire need of a cuddle?|
|In Shining Armor||6||✓||✗||With edged blade and fully equipped in a sturdy full plate armor, you charge at your enemies with both strength and valour. There's always a maiden to save and a dragon to slay for you.|
|Joke's on You||1||✗||✓||Well - the contents of that present weren't quite what you expected. With friends like these, who needs enemies?|
|Keeper of the Flame||2||✗||✓||One of the Lightbearers. One of those who helped to keep the basins burning and worked together against the darkness. The demonic whispers behind the thin veil between the worlds - they were silenced again thanks to your help.|
|Let the Sunshine In||1||✗||✓||Rise and shine! It's a beautiful new day - open your windows, feel the warm sunlight, watch the birds singing on your windowsill and care for your plants. What reason is there not to be happy?|
|Life on the Streets||4||✓||✗||You're a beggar, homeless, wearing filthy and ragged clothes. But that doesn't mean you have to beg anyone for stuff - and you still kept your pride. Fine feathers do not necessarily make fine birds - what's under them is more important.|
|Make a Wish||1||✗||✓||But close your eyes and don't tell anyone what you wished for, or it won't come true!|
|Master of War||6||✓||✗||You're not afraid to show your colours in the heat of battle. Enemies fear your lethal lance and impenetrable armor. The list of the wars you've won is impressive. Hail and kill!|
|Mastermind||3||✗||✗||You feel you could solve the hardest riddles within a minute or so. Plus, there's a nice boost on your spell damage. All in a little bottle. Aftereffects - feeling slightly stupid. For further questions consult your healer or potion dealer.|
|Mister Sandman||2||✓||✓||Tired... so tired... curling up in a warm and cosy bed seems like the perfect thing to do right now. Sweet dreams!|
|Modest Guest||1||✓||✓||You don't need much to sleep comfortably. A pile of straw and a roof over your head - with the latter being completely optional - is quite enough to relax. You don't even mind the rats nibbling on your toes.|
|Mutated Presents||1||✓||✓||Muahahaha it's a... mutated pumpkin! After helping to take it down - you DID help, didn't you? - you claimed your reward and got a more or less weird present. Happy Halloween!|
|Natural Sweetener||1||✓||✓||Liberty Bay is the perfect hangout for you and harvesting sugar cane quite a relaxing leisure activity. Would you like some tea with your sugar, hon?|
|Nightmare Walker||6||✓||✗||You do not fear nightmares, you travel in them - facing countless horrors and fighting the fate they're about to bring. Few believe the dark prophecies you bring back from those dreams, but those who do fight alongside you as Nightmare Knights.|
|Nothing Can Stop Me||1||✗||✓||You laugh at unprepared adventurers stuck in high grass or rush wood. Or maybe you actually do help them out. They call you... 'Machete'.|
|Number of the Beast||2||✗||✗||Six. Six. Six.|
|Of Wolves and Bears||6||✓||✗||One with nature, one with wildlife. Raw and animalistic power, sharpened senses, howling on the highest cliffs and roaring in the thickest forests - that's you.|
|One Thousand and One||6||✓||✗||You feel at home under the hot desert sun with sand between your toes, and your favourite means of travel is a flying carpet. Also, you can probably do that head isolation dance move.|
|Oops||2||✗||✓||So much for your feathered little friend! Maybe standing in front of the birdcage, squeezing its neck and shouting 'Sing! Sing! Sing!' was a little too much for it?!|
|Out in the Snowstorm||4||✓||✗||Snow heaps and hailstorms can't keep you from where you want to go. You're perfectly equipped for any expedition into the perpetual ice and know how to keep your feet warm. If you're a woman, that's quite an accomplishment, too.|
|Peazzekeeper||6||✓||✗||You're a humble warrior who doesn't need wealth or specialised equipment for travelling and fighting. You feel at home in the northern lands of Zao and did your part in fighting its corruption.|
|Piece of Cake||1||✗||✗||Life can be so easy with the right cake at the right time - and you mastered baking many different ones, so you should be prepared for almost everything life decides to throw at you.|
|Ritualist||6||✓||✗||You could be the author of the magnum opus 'How to Summon the Ultimate Beast from the Infernal Depths, Volume I'. Or, if your mind and heart are pure, you rather summon beings to help others. Or maybe just a little cat to have someone to cuddle.|
|Rock Me to Sleep||1||✓||✓||Sleeping - you do it with style. You're chilling in your hammock, listening to the sound of the birds and crickets as you slowly drift away into the realm of dreams.|
|Rocket in Pocket||1||✗||✓||Either you are not a fast learner or you find some pleasure in setting yourself on fire. Or you're just looking for a fancy title. In any case, you should know that passing gas during your little donkey experiments is not recommended.|
|Rollercoaster||1||✗||✗||Up and down and up and down... and then the big looping! Wait - they don't build loopings in Kazordoon. But ore wagon rides are still fun!|
|Santa's Li'l Helper||2||✗||✓||Christmas is your favourite time of the year, and boy, do you love presents. Buy some nice things for your friends, hide them away until - well, until you decide to actually unwrap them rather yourself.|
|Sharpshooter||3||✗||✗||Improved eyesight, arrows and bolts flying at the speed of light and pinning your enemies with extra damage. All in a little bottle. No consumption of carrots required. For further questions consult your healer or potion dealer.|
|Skull and Bones||6||✓||✗||Wearing the insignia and dark robes of the Brotherhood of Bones you roam the lands spreading fear and pain, creating new soldiers for the necromantic army which is about to rise soon. Hail the Brotherhood.|
|Slim Chance||1||✗||✗||Okay, let's face it - as long as you believe it could potentially lead you to the biggest treasure ever, you won't let go of that map, however fishy it might look. There must be a secret behind all of this!|
|Swashbuckler||6||✓||✗||Ye be a gentleman o' fortune, fightin' and carousin' on the high seas, out fer booty and lassies! Ye no be answerin' to no man or blasted monarchy and yer life ain't fer the lily-livered. Aye, matey!|
|Sweet Tooth||2||✗||✓||The famous 'Ode to a Molten Chocolate Cake' was probably written by you. Spending a rainy afternoon in front of the chimney, wrapped in a blanket while indulging in cocoa delights sounds just like something you'd do. Enjoy!|
|Swift Death||6||✓||✗||Stealth kills and backstabbing are you specialty. Your numerous victims are usually unaware of their imminent death, which you bring to them silently and swiftly. Everything is permitted.|
|The Cake's the Truth||1||✗||✓||And anyone claiming otherwise is a liar.|
|The Day After||2||✗||✓||Uhm... who's that person who you just woke up beside? Broken cocktail glasses on the floor, flowers all over the room, and why the heck are you wearing a ring? Yesterday must have been a long, weird day...|
|The Undertaker||2||✗||✓||You and your shovel - a match made in heaven. Or hell, for that matter. Somewhere down below in any case. You're magically attracted by stone piles and love to open them up and see where those holes lead you. Good biceps as well.|
|True Lightbearer||5||✓||✓||You're one of the most dedicated Lightbearers - without you, the demons would have torn the veil between the worlds for sure. You've lit each and every basin, travelling high and low, pushing back the otherworldly forces. Let there be light!|
|Warlock||6||✓||✗||You're proficient in the darker ways of magic and are usually found sitting inside a circle of candles and skulls muttering unspeakable words. Don't carry things too far or the demons might come get you.|
|Way of the Shaman||6||✓||✗||Shaking your rattle and dancing around the fire to jungle drums sounds like something you like doing. Besides, dreadlocks are a convenient way to wear your hair - no combing required!|
|Wild Warrior||6||✓||✗||Valour is for weaklings - it doesn't matter how you win the battle, as long as you're victorious. Thick armor would just hinder your movements, thus you keep it light and rely on speed and skill instead of hiding in an uncomfortable shell.|
|With a Cherry on Top||1||✗||✓||You like your cake soft, with fruity bits and a nice sugar icing. And you prefer to make them by yourself. Have you ever considered opening a bakery? You must be really good by now!|
|Yalahari of Power||3||✓||✗||You defend Yalahar with brute force and are ready to lead it into a glorious battle, if necessary. Thanks to you, Yalahar will be powerful enough to stand up against any enemy.|
|Yalahari of Wisdom||3||✓||✗||Your deeds for Yalahar are usually characterised by deep insight and thoughtful actions. Thanks to you, Yalahar might have a chance to grow peacefully and with happy people living in it.|
