PoTBS: Patch Notes for Build

Posted Fri, Dec 28, 2007 by Aelryn

No candy canes for you. Back to coding!

Apparently the Pirates of the Burning Sea team doesn't even stop for Christmas. Just two days later, and they have a brand new patch for you!

This build includes some major changes to Swashbuckling that we are eager for you to test. Initiative decay is gone. That means as you rack up Initiative from prep attacks, you keep it instead of seeing it quickly drain to 0. We think this removes a large amount of suck from avatar combat. We also decided that low-level grunts were too easy, so they start getting challenging at level 12 instead of level 16. These two changes should mean that your fights will be more challenging and less button-mashing.
