1.125C Pendragon Patch Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Nov 09 12:52 -0500 GMT
Patch 1.125C is now up on the Pendragon test server!

Click the image below to check out the latest patch notes! We're nearing the home stretch for Patch 1.125 and look forward to your continued feedback

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest duplicating your game directory and using the duplicate copy as a Pendragon-only game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • ​This means duplicating the entire "Labyrinth" folder (usually found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Labyrinth) to another location and using that copied folder exclusively for Pendragon testing.
    • If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching from Pendragon back to live.
      • To force the live client to fix these issues, you will need to delete the mft.myp in your game's directory and then run the camelot.exe patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!
 
 

Highlights


  • Buggane’s Obelisk is now found on Ellan Vannin permanently!
  • Check out the Molvik Dynamic Keep Objective improvements based directly on last week’s playtest feedback!
  • Several class adjustments based on your feedback!

Feedback and testing on Patch 1.125 has been amazing thus far and we're confident we're headed in the right direction. We have some adjustments and updates to 1.125 coming to Pendragon this week that we think you'll be very happy with!

We'd also like to ask for your help participating in a couple of organized and targeted play-tests on Pendragon in the coming days and weeks!

  • On Wednesday, October 24th, starting at 3PM EST / 9PM CET we invite you to come help us test the new keep-siege dynamics, race/gender/name change system, bountycraft, and anything else we have time for! We will especially need groups on all realms to attack/defend keeps of various levels.
  • On Sunday, November 4th, starting at  2PM EST / 8 PM CET we'd like you to join us in Molvik and put the battleground's new dynamic keep changes to the test! We'll need a mix of each realm to siege and defend the center keep and its new objectives.
  • In thanks, we will have many giveaways for Mithril throughout each play-test event!

Please keep your eyes peeled here or on the forums for any other events that get announced!

Pendragon Patch 1.125

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Oct 11 20:17 -0400 GMT
Patch 1.125 is now up on the Pendragon test server!

Friends and frenemies,

The wait is over. Our fingers may be numb and tired, our eyes dry and drooping, but patch 1.125 is here and the day seems brighter already.

The crisp Spring and humid Summer weather has come and gone but nothing beats a perfect Autumn day for the launch of a major version (even to our test server) - especially one that coincides with Dark Age of Camelot's 17th anniversary month.

Patch 1.125 is chock full of updates and fixes that we're confident you'll enjoy. Bountycrafting is here with the ability to earn end-game gear exclusively through RvR.

Better yet, despite the previous Producer's letter warning of difficulties with the Race, Gender, and Name changes, we're ecstatic to announce that all 3 are in 1.125 and the mechanism for them is streamlined and part of the character customization interface. We know you're going to love how it works! Several much-requested bug fixes and client/server performance measures have been implemented as well.

But before you dive into the full notes, we'd like to humbly request your help.

Yes, you.

We need your help to ensure that this patch launches as smoothly as possible. The Race, Gender, and Name change feature is something we want you all to use A LOT and it involves fundamental changes to characters - the more eyes looking at it and trying to break it the better! Any major bugs found will be handsomely rewarded!

Additionally, the Bountycraft system has a TON of items available to be crafted and woe be us if, despite our testing and re-testing, one of the recipes has the wrong ingredient listed or crafts a different item than intended. Users that have experienced crashes at specific locations in cities or dungeons and users that occassionally see other characters and monsters disappear should visit Pendragon and see if those issues are all cleared up!

Finally, there are many, many RvR-related changes that will affect how siege warfare is waged in the frontier and battlegrounds. We'll be hosting some events while 1.125 is on Pendragon and we encourage you all to come out and enjoy the fun!


Without further ado, check out the rest of the patch's highlights below or better yet read the notes in their entirety by clicking the image-link! 

Onward,

John Thornhill
Producer
