  2. Profile Level

    I raised the forum profile level setting up to 70 for those who want to ding their levels on the forums.
  3. Themes

    Installed Hallows Eve theme since you know, it's like close to October. Refresh the page and click on the theme link down at the bottom of the site to select it.
  4. September 12, 2017 _____________________ *** Highlights *** - Added the Find Item Window which allows you to search your inventory. See UI section for detail. *** Items *** - Stats granted by food and drink will now obey required and recommended levels. - Modified the focus effects on all versions of Brell's Shawl items and augments so that their benefits will no longer be activated by triggered spells. - - Ex: Previously, casting Unity of the Doomscale would attempt to trigger Brell's Sacred Soothing Wave 5 times, now it will only attempt to trigger once. - The kick skill damage modifier has been added to appropriate bard usable items. - The Relife Adornment augment usable by Warriors, Rangers, and Beastlords can now be used by Bards. The Relife Adornment augment currently usable by Bards can now be converted to the version with the kick skill damage modifier. - Bards can now use Struck Quartzite augments. - Corrected an issue that allowed the teleport spells on Zueria Slide to be cast without standing or while moving. - Corrected an issue that prevented the recast timer on Gyrospire Relocation Device from being set as expected. - Nimbuses that had "aura" in the name have had their names changed, since "aura" has another meaning. - The Bridle of the Ursus Antonicus can no longer be used indoors. - Reverted the names and icons of the items used to create the Hand of Glory. - Horse Bridles that can be sold back to Galic Amondson in The Bazaar will now have description text indicating: - - Creatures that previously dropped Silken Bridles will now instead drop Ornate Silken Bridles. - - Ornate Silken Bridles are equivalent to Silken Bridles with the exception that they cannot be sold back to Galic Amondson, are lore, and cannot be used in Roboboar, Worg, or Ornate Barding combines. *** Quests And Events *** - Hunter of The Plane of Valor - The rare creature previously named 'a Lumbering Beast' is now named 'an Ungainly Beast' to better differentiate it from the non-rare creatures that were also named 'a Lumbering Beast'. - Queen Velazul Di`zok (Raid) - Modified the Queen event so that the warcasters once again cast Enveloping Smoke all at the same time. They now cast Electric Blast at staggered intervals. - Kor-Sha Laboratory (Raid) - Fixed an issue that would cause Aura of Kor-Sha to be applied (but resisted) every minute for players who had completed the Essence of the Dragon II achievement. - Access to Asylum of Anguish - A Shrewd Dragorn no longer has a placeholder and is now guaranteed to spawn (in new locations) in all versions of the Dranik's Hollows instances. He now carries six signets but will not respawn in the same instance. - The Summoning of Droga (Raid & Mission) - Droga will no longer count down towards consuming one of his priests unless there are priests up. It should make it easier and more reliable to get the No Priests for You achievement. - A Rotten Heart (Mission) - Speculative fix to prevent a client crash when Adana Baxter is reduced to 25% health. - Celestial Fists (Quest) - Gwan should more reliably leave a corpse when slain. - The Rescue (Quest) - Hailing Agilica will now properly cause the two Darkvine guard NPCs to spawn. *** Spells *** - Berserker - Corrected an issue that prevented several abilities (the Volley line and Dichotomic Rage) from properly checking for the reagent they were flagged to require. - Paladin - Increased the cost of Harmonious Blessing and reduced the number of counters to 40. Reduced the hate added by Harmonious Illumination. Reduced the heal granted by Harmonious Light. - Shadowknight - Increased the cost of Harmonious Disruption and reduced the number of counters to 40. Reduced the damage dealt by Precise Disruption. Reduced the range and healing amount of Disruptive Recourse. Reduced the hate added by Precise Disruption and Expansive Distraction. - Warrior - Converted Flash of Anger so that it no longer has to buff you with a second 'Flash of Anger Effect' spell. Because two-handed stance negates the parry buff from this ability, you are now prevented from activating Flash of Anger while you are in that stance. - Warrior - Increased the cost of Harmonious Expanse. Reduced the number of counters on Harmonious Expanse Effect to 40. Greatly reduced the hate added by Expansive Disharmony. - Illusion Benefit buffs now persist through death. *** AA *** - All - Corrected a bug that caused the achievement Call of the Forsaken Master Scavenger to not grant ranks 3 or 4 of Trophy Collector. Any affected characters should be fixed the next time they log in. - All - Increased the base mitigation AC soft cap by 6-26% starting at level 85 for all classes. - All - The following ability lines have been consolidated or modified which may result in the need for some classes to repurchase some abilities.

Adjusted the number of strikes triggered by Virulent Talon to account for the reduced reuse time. - Magician, Shaman - Slightly reduced the effectiveness of ranks 19-25 of Malosinete and ranks 4-10 of Wind of Malosinete so that the appropriate level Malo spells will overwrite the AA ability debuff. - Mana Users - Spell Casting Mastery no longer reduces the mana cost of AA abilities that have a mana cost. - Monk - Made a number of significant changes to the following AA lines: Crippling Strike, Eye Gouge, Gouging Claws of the Jade Tiger, Master's Hastened Combination, and Stunning Kick: - - Eye Gouge has been changed into a passive ability named Resonant Strikes that will add an additional Tiger Claw attack to your Tiger Claw, Eagle Strike, or Dragon Punch (or Tail Rake) skill button presses. - - Stunning Kick has been changed into a passive ability named Resonant Kicks that will add an additional Flying Kick attack to your Kick, Round Kick, or Flying Kick skill button presses. - - Crippling Strike has been changed into a passive ability named Sweeping Kick that allows your Kick skill button presses to snare your target for 6 seconds. - - Gouging Claws of the Jade Tiger has had additional ranks added to it and will now allow your Tiger Claw skill button presses to trigger an attack debuff equivalent to Eye Gouge. - - Master's Hastened Combination has had additional ranks added and has been renamed Stunning Round Kick, it will now allow your Round Kick skill button presses to stun your target for up to 1.5 seconds. - Necromancer - Consolidated Death's Malaise to be ranks 8-9 and 12-13 of Scent of Terris.

  5. Forum Upgrade Tonight

    Upgrade complete. Let me know if there is any weirdness.
  6. Forum Upgrade Tonight

    I'm upgrading the forum to the latest version tonight later on. It only takes a few minutes for the upgrade and a few more minutes for me to upgrade the themes and other plugins. I tested all this out on my other site. There were some theme issues that I ironed out so we're ready to go.
  7. dkp site error code

    Did some database optimization. I noticed the raid attendees table was getting big, 237,000+ records and was giving some 30 second timeouts on record lookups to it. Inserting records is probably having more trouble from the looks of the logs. Anyways, I optimized that table and then converted to innodb instead of myisam. We'll see how it handles before and during a raid when everyone is hitting it. I'll ssh into the server and watch how its handling the load. The site is on a shared server with hundreds (possibly thousands) of other customers. I can only use 25% cpu and memory but sql is a hog on resources. The larger the database tables get, the more processing power that is needed to process a sql query on them in a decent time. This is the same exact problem we are having on allakhazam with the forum posting database table which is the primary reason why the site locks up. That table alone is nearly 3 gigs in size and they never pruned it at all. All the allakhazam platform sites all use that same table to store their posts. Very bad design. I'm actually importing that table into my local dev machine right now. It will be pruned quite heavily. Anyways, In order to get more processing power, I would have to put our site on a VPS or dedicated server with more processing power. Either option is not cheap. VPS is around $80 a month and the cheapest dedicated is around $130 a month with my current host (hostgator). I can probably get cheaper some where else but I don't make the kind of money I used to or I would have gotten a dedicated server long ago. I'll keep an eye on it and see how it performs this week with the changes.
  8. dkp site error code

    Did some more work on the DKP site. Deleted some old cache files on the host dating back for a while. That should clear up some more errors the site was getting.
  9. dkp site error code

    I just doubled the amount of memory going to the DKP site. This should help with the problems it was having. I'll keep an eye on it.
  10. dkp site error code

    Has this happened in the last two days? This discord server app plugin for the forums was having issues and eating memory and causing database time outs for a couple weeks. I uninstalled it for now and haven't seen any issues since then. By the way, anytime anyone have any sort of issue like this, go ahead and send me a PM. I'm emailed immediately when someone PM's me. I usually check the forums multiple times a day too.

  12. Missing magelo signature images

    Magelo forgot to renew their SSL certificate and this is why signatures and other magelo images don't show. You can temporarily fix this by opening up the image and telling your browser to trust the image.
  13. Magelo apparently is having issues with pushing out their signatures so it's on their end. Just wanted to let people know that were curious.
  14. Website costs

    Thanks folks we got all the donations we needed. We're paid up until next year!

    Speaking of extremely talented guitarists.
