Version 1.66E Patch Notes (Test)

Straight from the Camelot Herald:

Dark Age of Camelot

Live Version 1.66e Release Notes

November 6, 2003



– We have added the /bu command as an alternative to /bc to chat in battlegroups. Note that /bc still works, but /bu is a keyboard friendly alternative.

– Boats have been adjusted further to better predict which boat is in front to avoid locking collision conditions.

– Monsters should follow their leaders up and down better underwater with less spinning/warping.

– Animist summon turret spells will fail if the ground target is adjusted out of animist line of sight during the cast.

– Item summoning abilities and spells will properly update player encumberance after summon.

– Item summoning abilities and spells (such as Summon Wood) no longer fail if the item summoned will over-encumber the user.

– Storm spells won’t affect a target with an engage radius if the caster is currently outside that radius.

– Summoned creatures (Such as Theurgist pets and Animist Turrets) won’t cause loss of quest kill credit when their summoner leaves the region as they continue to attack a monster.

– We have reduced the length of necro pet tether if pet has encounter-related no-purge effects.

– Fixed a bug where some Master Level Abilities could be quick-cast. All Master Level Abilities should now be properly flagged as no quick-cast.

– Fixed a bug that caused the length of time that a player was not worth realm points after death to be longer then intended. This bug was introduced in version 1.66


Item Notes

– The Vine Choker (Hibernia) can now be equipped by players who have a full suit of their respective classes’ armor from Galladoria.


Trials – General

– We have greatly increased the number of monsters that give Master Level experience in both the original and Shrouded Isles areas. Try exploring areas that you normally may not visit to find these monsters.
