Camelot Patch Notes (Live)

Straight from the Camelot Herald:


Dark Age of Camelot
Live Version 1.66h Release Notes
November 13, 2003



– Summoned wood will work for upgrading keep doors.

– Necromancers in shade form can now use siege weapons, but only if their pet is right next to them.

– Necromancers in shade form can now repair doors, but only if their pet is right next to them.

– Dead members of battlegroups will now receive quest and kill credit as long someone in the battlegroup gets credit, if the monster is set up to give battlegroup credit. This will primarily effect Atlantis encounters at this time.

– Items that add to the stat cap for acuity now actually do so.

– Items that add to the stat cap for any casting stat (acuity or specific) now add to the owner’s power pool if their casting stat is raised as a result of raising the stat cap.

– When a monster is considered, a message is now displayed telling you if master level experience can be gained by killing that monster.

– Spellcrafters and Alchemists have been granted 1 point in Siegecrafting. Note that this is not “full” siegecraft – spellcrafters and alchemists will not be able to raise their siegecraft skill as high as other crafts. This change in our approach to siegecraft and Spellcrafters and Alchemists allows them to utilize the new Master Abilities, while still allowing us to add additional siege related abilities to these crafts in the future.


Prescience Node was designed to add additional risk to stealthed enemies in the node’s area of effect, without making the stealther immediately open to attacks. The following changes have been made to Prescience Node in order to more accurately reflect the original intent of the ability.

– Enemies revealed by Prescience Node should no longer be attackable through ranged attacks nor should it be possible to send a pet to attack them. Area effect spells should still work as they would on any stealthed target.

– Prescience Node has been updated with a more appropriate object that is easier to see and target.

– Prescience Node radius has been adjusted down to 1000.


– Players can now switch their Master Level track by using an item that every “final” Trial encounter boss monster has a chance of dropping.
