5.28.08 Version 17.20080521.1

COMBINED NOTES

Maps

  • Imperious Task Force: Fixed several holes on the Vespillo Pass map (the 3rd map in the TF)

NPC Enemies

  • The formula used by Lieutenants to calculate hit points (hp) was incorrect. This resulted in Lieutenants below level 15 having more hit points than intended, and those above level 15 having fewer than intended. At level 1, a Lieutenant had 22 hp greater than they should, and at level 54, they had 55 hp less than they should. The formula has been corrected and they now have the correct hp throughout their level ranges.

Powers

Attack Powers:

  • Assault Rifle / M30 Grenade: This power should now be able to be slotted for both knockback enhancements and sets. This affects all versions of this power.
  • Battle Axe / Gash: Since this power currently uses Beheader’s old animation to smooth out its overall attack chain, its power name has been changed to Beheader to better suit its animation.
  • Battle Axe / Beheader: Since this power currently uses Gash’s old animation to smooth out its overall attack chain, its power name has been changed to Gash to better suit its animation.
  • Fire Sword: The animation for this power was changed. Its cast time was reduced from 1.67 to 1.33 seconds. This affects the power for all versions of Fiery Melee and Fire Manipulation.
  • Hurl Boulder: The animation for this power was changed. Its cast time was reduced from 3.83 to 2.5 seconds. This affects the versions of this power in Stone Mastery (Epic) and Stone Melee.
  • Ice Sword: The animation for this power was changed. Its cast time was reduced from 1.67 to 1.33 seconds. This affects the versions of this power in Ice Melee, Ice Manipulation and Icy Assault.
  • Stone Melee / Heavy Mallet: Increased activation time to 1.63. This was done to allow the animation to return the player into the neutral position before activating another power
  • Stone Melee / Stone Mallet: Increased activation time to 1.61. This was done to allow the animation to return the player into the neutral position before activating another power.
  • Super Strength / Hurl: The animation for this power was changed. Its cast time was reduced from 3.83 to 2.5 seconds. This affects both the Brute and Tanker versions of this power.
  • Further AI improvements for Seeker Drones and the Gun Drone power.
  • Damage from Psychic Blast / Mental Blast should be delayed to sync with projectile now.

  • Flight / Hover – Hovering Forward now has a new animation
  • Flight / Hover - Hover is now resistant to -Fly effects.
  • Medicine - Minor animation changes for Medicine - Aid Other, Aid Self, and Stimulant

Rewards

  • Vanguard Merits now will display ‘Merit Awarded!’ instead of ‘Salvage Found!’ when they are awarded to a player.

Tasks

  • Taskforce challenge ‘debuff players’ was only being applied to the team leader. This has been fixed.

User Interface

CITY of HEROES

Powers

Blaster

  • Blaster / Psychic Blast / Will Domination: Changed the long help text to match the short help text for this power. The long help for Will Domination now accurately states this power deals Moderate damage.
  • Blaster / Mental Manipulation / World of Confusion: Blaster World of Confusion endurance cost was 50 % of the correct value. This has been corrected.
  • Blaster / Electric Blast / Charged Bolts: The blaster version of this power should no longer list that it takes endurance modification enhancements twice.

Controller

  • Controller / Illusion Control / Deceive: Added PvP Confusion suppression to this power.

Defender

  • Defender / Psychic Blast / Will Domination: Changed the long help text to match the short help text for this power. The long help for Will Domination now accurately states this power deals Moderate damage.
  • Defender / Psychic Blast / Mental Blast: Damage is now delayed for projectile hit

Kheldian Epic Archetypes

  • Peacebringer / Combat Flight, Peacebringer / Bright Nova, and Warshade / Dark Nova are now resistant to -Fly effects.

Peacebringer

  • Peacebringer / Luminous Blast / Photon Seekers: Increased Radius on Peacebringer Photon Seekers’ explosion from 7’ to 10’, but reduced their damage slightly from Damage Scale 2 to 1.64.
  • Peacebringer / Combat Flight now gives AoE defense equal to its existing Melee and Ranged Defense values.

CITY of VILLAINS

Stalker Update

  • Increased Stalker Melee damage multiplier from 0.9 base to 1.0 base.
  • Increased Stalker Hit Points multiplier from 0.95 to 1.125
  • All Stalker melee attacks now have a chance to critical while not hidden. This chance is equal to 10% plus 3% per additional team member within 30’ of the stalker at the time of the attack. This only applies to PVE targets. Stalkers old chance to critical Held or Slept targets now only applies to PVP targets.
    • The Critical portion of Energy Transfer operates exactly as if you were criticalling from Hide -- it eliminates the Self Damage, rather than increasing damage to the target.
  • Using an Assassination attack and missing will no longer suppress Hide (though lesser stealth and invisibility powers will still suppress) if the attack misses. If the attack hits, Hide suppresses normally.
  • Hide Suppression for Stalkers reduced from 10 seconds to 8 seconds.
  • Assassination attacks now cause a demoralizing effect on PVE targets that survive the attack. Demoralized targets To Hit value is reduced, and the target may be frozen in terror.

Powers

Villain Epic Archetypes:

  • Arachnos Soldiers and Widows will now properly be able to enhance Patron Power Pool powers.
Arachnos Soldier
  • Arachnos Soldier / Crab Spider / Omega Maneuver: Mobs defeated by Omega Maneuver explosion should now grant rewards to the player.
Arachnos Widow
  • Arachnos Widow / Fortunata Teamwork / Aura of Confusion: Added PvP Confusion suppression to this power.
  • Arachnos Widow / Fortunata Teamwork / Confuse: Added PvP Confusion suppression to this power.
  • Arachnos Widow / Fortunata Training / Total Domination: This power’s victim hit message was reporting {PowerName} instead of the power’s name, this has been corrected.
  • Arachnos Widow / Fortunata Training / Subdue: This power now has the proper purple ring visual effect to indicate the target has been immobilized; these were not present for NPC targets.
  • Arachnos Widow / Fortunata Training / Dominate: This power’s victim hit message was reporting {PowerName} instead of the power’s name, this has been corrected.
  • Arachnos Widow / Widow Training: All attacks from Widow Training had their toxic damage enhanceable. This has been fixed.
  • Arachnos Widow / Widow Training / Strike: Corrected animation for Widow Training – Strike. Strike now uses intended ‘gutpunch’ animation.
  • Arachnos Widow / Widow Training / Poison Dart: Long help read “Poison Dart does light moderate damage to your foe, then poisons them. The poison does toxic damage over time and reduces their regeneration rate. Damage: Moderate Recharge: Fast”. Changed to: “Poison Dart does moderate damage to your foe, then poisons them. The poison does toxic damage over time and reduces their regeneration rate. Damage: Moderate Recharge: Fast”
  • Arachnos Widow / Widow Training: Animation/Activation time changes for some Arachnos Widow Claw attacks.
    • Swipe - 0.83 seconds
    • Strike - 1.17 seconds
    • Slash - 1.33 seconds

Brutes

  • Super Reflexes / Evasion: Corrected the Brute version of this power to cost the correct amount of endurance. It previously was costing far too little endurance.

Corruptor

  • The Corruptor version of Voltaic Sentinel now has Scourge effects.
  • Traps and Storm Summoning for Corruptors were using the wrong value in the endurance cost calculations. This has been corrected and should see a decrease in endurance costs for most powers from these sets.

Dominators

  • Dominators / Icy Assault / Greater Ice Sword: This power has been renamed ‘Ice Slash’. This is to differentiate it from powers with the same name, but differing animations.

Masterminds

  • Masterminds / Necromancy / Grave Knight: The henchman The “Grave Knight” will now use his Necromancy Sword for all of his attacks. This should also help him cycle through all of his sword attack powers.

Stalkers

  • Stalkers / Ninja Blade / Placate should no longer cause redraw with other Ninja Blade powers.
  • Stalkers / Dual Blades / Assassin’s Blades – Fixed Animation

Temporary Powers

  • Coral Club: This power had its activation time increased to 1.6 seconds. This was done to allow the animation to return the player into the neutral position before activating another power.

Tailor

  • Crab Spider backpacks are now only available to Soldiers Of Arachnos who have specialized in the Crab Spider path. They are customizable now at the Facemaker and will be removed if you respec out of the Crab Spider path.
