Greetings AOV!

It's been a long time since an update but a few improvements and additions have been put into production.

As always, feel free to report any issues you find or address any concerns or leave any feedback.

MySql Storage Optimizations

- Restructured the way snapshots take place, and did other misc back end enhancements to the overall system. This will mean less load on the server. This may or may not be noticeable to players but does help for the overall performance of our hosting environment.

- Added more fail safes in case of a crash during a critical moment of the save process (such as snapshots).

- The issue where a crash happened and it would delete mobiles, guilds, accounts, or items should no longer happen.

Talisman Revisions

Talismans have had extensive revisions:

- The killer and protection animal/monster bonuses on talismans have been expanded from 64 possible animals/monsters to a whopping 415! Please see the list below for which animals/monsters were included.

- The following monsters have been removed from the talisman killer/protection list: jedi, dark jedi, sith lord. These were removed as the monsters are no longer available in game to kill, they have been re-skinned to pirates instead (talismans are available for these). Existing talismans are unaffected and can be kept as rares. These mobs may be recycled for future limited time events.

- The killer property range has been changed from 10% - 100% to 1% - 100%. This was changed to keep on par with OSI values. Existing talismans are unaffected and can be kept as rares.

- The protection property range has been changed from 1% - 100% to 1% - 60%. This was changed to keep on par with OSI values and to incorporate all monsters (including bosses) while providing a protection bonus that's within reason. Existing talismans are unaffected and can be kept as rares.

Please report any animals/creatures that currently spawn in game that are missing from the list. The idea is that every creature in the game that can be attacked will have a talisman killer/protection property (town guards are an exception) eventually. Also, please let us know if the naming on the talisman is incorrect and we will make the adjustment. Due to the large number of animals/mobiles in game, it is likely that some were missed for the time being, but the list will be continuously revised as needed.

Underworld Quests, Navrey and New Loot

Several Underworld quests are now available for players to participate in.

Because we don't have standard recipe drops, some quests have been revised to drop bags of treasure instead (such as the "Bad Company" Underworld quest).

Navrey Night-Eyes is also now available to challenge. Navrey is a large spider boss that can drop artifacts and other goodies as loot. Navrey is most well known for dropping the "tangle" apron, which is the magic counterpart to the "Crimson Cincture":

http://www.uoguide.com/Tangle_(Half_Apron)

Although the boss does not need to be summoned and can be freely challenged by entering her den, one would be wise to stock up on acid poppers to protect themselves from her sticky web attack. The monster's health has been drastically reduced and artifact drop chance has been drastically bumped up (Around 30% instead of 1%). If you go to fight her, please provide some feedback on the battle as we are looking to fine tune the boss encounter, her abilities and overall strength. This is intended to be comparable to a champion boss with high rewards.

Monsters in the underworld are now able to drop gargish weaponry. Although you will need a gargoyle character to use them (currently unimplemented), this will give you an opportunity to begin gathering gear for them.

Paladin Swords

Paladin swords can now be dropped as loot as well as crafted in game by a skilled blacksmith (located under the "bladed" blacksmith menu). Monsters/regions associated with the age of shadows expansion are most likely to drop them (think Malas/Doom and the Gauntlet).

In addition to being crafted, there are 3 new artifact paladin swords:

- The Redeemer: Can be obtained as a rare reward from the Fountain of Fortune in the Underworld
- Excalibur: A powerful sword, intended to smite single monsters but may also be suitable for numerous monsters. Can be retrieved in the underworld by offering a Redeemer to an order altar. Requires maximum positive karma of 15,000 (Karma is reset to 0).
- Ragnarok: A dreadful sword forecasting the end of days. This sword brings upon massive area destruction. Can be retrieved in the underworld by offering a Redeemer to a chaos altar. Requires maximum negative karma of 15,000 (Karma is reset to 0).

Dread Horn

Dread Horn no longer has the rune beetle corruption ability which reduces your resists. This has been corrected to Dread Horn's "Gaze of Despair" attack, which reduces your STR, DEX and MANA by 20 points.

As this took a long time to revise, for a limited amount of time, Dread Horn will be free to challenge in the mushroom cave without the need to gather peerless keys.

The boss is on a 4 hour respawn timer and will be removed on November 1st, 2018. After this time, players will need to gather the necessary keys for the encounter.

Miscellaneous Additions and Fixes

- The paladin sword can now be crafted using blacksmithing (listed under the "bladed" heading
- Acid poppers can be crafted by cooks (listed under the "preparations" heading) or alchemists (listed under the "explosive" heading). You will need adequate skill, eggs and congealed slug acid (from acid slugs), to make these. You can also obtain these from quests.
- The crystal demon Demitel boss has been given the proper name of "Kalvarra". This is to avoid confusion between crystal demon killer/protection on the new talismans:
- Kalvarra protection and killer property pertains to the crystal demon Demitel boss
- Crystal Daemon protection and killer property pertains to the monster in the Prism of Light
