|1. ** IMPORTANT ** Partial Combat Fix | 8/21/2004 4:02:09 AM GMTDT
While we have been looking into the various combat related complaints, we did find a couple issues that we can correct quickly.
- Previous to this patch weapon and defensive skill-ups were going up much too slowly. Luckily, weapon/defense skills really didn't do much in combat. We have now corrected that problem, but it means that most everyone is under-skilled with their weapons and defense.
For this weekend only, we are having all characters skill-up their weapons and defense at a hyper rate. Make sure you log all your characters in and participate in combat until you max your combat skills. After the weekend, we will be returning your skill-up rate to normal.
