Welcome to the penultimate Grab Bag of the year!

Our November newsletter went out recently and included a peak at what changes and updates we're working on! If you're not signed up to get the newsletter every month in your inbox, sign up here now! 

Speaking of coming to the end of the year (and what a year!), our last Saturday Dev Giveaway stream of the year will be a giveaway extravaganza, with many prizes up for grabs! Make sure you tune in to our official DAoC Twitch channel on December 19th for that, and throw a follow to the channel so you can get notifications on when we're live :) More details on that will follow in our final Grab Bag of the year on December 18th.

Thanks, as always, to everyone for your questions! You can submit any questions relating to current development plans, to request clarification on basic game mechanic questions, or questions on community issues through the Grab Bag Submission form. For any other feedback or suggestions please use our feedback form.

Onwards to the questions! 

Odd question but im getting diff stories...the towers/keeps in the bg' they count toward DF ownership?

No, only keeps and towers in the Frontier count towards Darkness Falls ownership.

Bonedancer set gear, what does it actually do now?  My Suppressive Buffer delves for 19% ABS, the set gear says it goes from 10% to 17% with the gear.  Does this 7% buff translate over to the new ABS buff or is it effectively broken right now?  Thanks.

After double-checking our previous changes and patch notes, this looks like an oversight. The level 41 version of the Suppressive Buffer baseline ability should still be 10% not 19%. The level 30 version of the spell is 5% and all other similar absorption buffs on other classes remain set to 5% and 10%. This fix is now live and the set’s effect should once again increase it from 10% to 17%.

Do different mezzes from different levels or classes have different immunities? Can you get mezzed by one type/class and then mezzed by another type of mez seconds later?

All mesmerization effects are identical. If you are immune to one type of mez, you are immune to all of them.

Hi, I would like to know exactly how say "Mythical Physical Defense 2" work.
Is it
(2% Crush + 2% Slash + 2% Thrust)
(2% Crush + 2% Slash + 2% Thrust + 2% Crush cap increase + 2% Slash cap increase  + 2% Thrust cap increase)?

Mythical Physical Defense grants the resists and resist cap. Please note that the character attribute page does not correctly show the resist cap increase but the extra resists do correctly affect damage dealt to the character.

Since Endless Conquest was released, the EC FAQ was produced but doesn't mention scripting or multiboxing. The last Producers Letter concerning scripting/multiboxing was in 2016. Can we get an update that specifically clarifies the Broadsword policy on scripting/multiboxing with Endless Conquest accounts? Thanks

As mentioned in the Producer’s letter, free accounts (previously referred to as ‘trial’) are not permitted to run “macro-groups” anywhere, including PvE zones. Everything else remains the same as stated in that Producer's Letter.

Why is the Thane axe and sword weaponskill lower then hammer skill is?

Thanes follow in the footsteps of the god of lightning, Thor, whose favored weapon is a hammer. It’s also why a Thane’s iconic area-of-effect damage spell heavily features hammers!


Don't forget! Midwinter Event starts December 17th, with Midwinter gifts due December 21st! :)
Enjoy the weekend, all :)
