To participate in instanced raids, players must first have accepted a quest to access the areas in question, as well as met several requirements (listed below).
    * Once players have completed the aforementioned quest, they will be able to access the instanced raid areas at any time, as long as they meet party and rank requirements.

Battle

  • [dev1022] Auto-attack has been implemented.Whereas players used to have to execute normal attacks via the action bar, with auto-attack, players need to merely enter active mode, target an enemy, and approach the foe to begin their assault.* Auto-attack will be implemented for Disciples of War and Magic only, and will take the form of a melee attack for all applicable classes. For instance, archers will strike with their bare fists, while conjurers and thaumaturges will deliver a blow with their equipped weapon.
    * Disciples of the Land and the Hand will still require entering active mode and selecting Stone Throw from the action bar to perform an attack.
    * Players must be facing their targets to auto-attack.
    * Auto-attack will stop when a player moves too far from a target, is not facing a target, enters passive mode, or untargets an enemy.
    The speed of normal auto-attacks is determined by an attack delay value given to weapons, while manual actions are regulated by recast timers.* Attack delay for archers is a set value unaffected by the type of bow and arrows equipped. The delay value given to bows indicates the recast time for the action Light Shot. In conjunction with the implementation of auto-attack, the following basic attacks have been removed:
    • Pugilist: Heavy Strike
    • Gladiator: Light Slash
    • Marauder: Light Swing
    • Lancer: Light Thrust

    * Light Shot (Archer), Spirit Dart (Conjurer), Phantom Dart (Thaumaturge), Throw, and Stone Throw remain as executable actions, but have all been issued recast timers. Variations to auto attack motions, as well as the ability to cast spells while in passive mode will be implemented in a later patch.

  • [dev1022] The stamina gauge has been abolished.Consequently, certain actions that were dependent upon the stamina gauge have either had their effects revised, or have been made to affect attack delay. All weapons have been given a “delay” value which indicates the number of seconds in between auto attacks.
    * The casting gauge for spells has not been moved or adjusted.
  • [dev1065] The action bar, by default, will now remain on-screen at all times.
    * This setting can be switched off in the Configuration menu.
  • [dev1065] Recast timers for actions are now visible on the action bar.

  • [dev1088] Toggling between active and passive modes can now be done while moving.
  • [dev1023] The enmity algorithm has been adjusted.Enmity is now a culmination of all actions taken in battle with one point of damage equalling one point of enmity.

    Actions that contribute to enmity can be divided into two distinct groups:
    1. damage and enfeeblement inflicted on the target
    2. enhancement and healing granted to party members

    Not only does the amount enmity garnered differ between the two aforementioned groups, but varies based on the amount of damage dealt/HP restored. Enmity is reset when a player cannot participate in battle for an extended period of time (is KO’d, etc).

  • [dev1023] In conjunction with the enmity algorithm change, the amount of enmity earned by certain actions has been adjusted.
  • [dev1023] An icon displaying enmity has been introduced.This icon is located to the left of an enemy’s HP bar.
    Not only does the icon indicate that a player has garnered enmity, but approximately how much enmity, and whether or not the player is the enemy’s current target.

    No icon You have garnered no enmity.
    Solid green/orange/red icon You have garnered some enmity, the amount indicated by one of three colors: Green (low), Orange (mid), Red (high).
    The higher your enmity level, the greater the chance that you will be targeted by the enemy.
    Flashing red icon You have garnered the most enmity in your party and the enemy is now targeting you.

    * The enmity icon can be turned on/off in the Configuration menu.

  • [dev1032] The following conjurer-specific spells have been introduced:
