Rising Kingdoms saw some changes in the month of May, and they are:
- New level 10-20 area and a new quest available in this zone. - Mob hp and damage has been decreased at higher levels to make killing more comfortable and not so longwinded. - Added shoulder slot and various shoulder guard pieces. - Can now send tells to players who are invisible, even if you are blind. - Old puzzle area 'Cursed Temple of Orotu' has been fixed up so the progs are working properly now. - Recipe ingredients for potion brewing are now all hidden in the game. - Potion brewing will now create at least 3 extra potions, and with high luck, it will create more. - You can now permanently record recipes when you successfully brew a new spell. - New Dwarf evo: Duergar. - New Archer attack 'rapid fire' to help archers stay alive in close-ranged combat. - It's now slightly more painful for Vampires to walk in the sunlight. - Pet hitpoints have been increased by 20%. - Various bug fixes. - Thieves can now throw potions at their targets and transfer the effects of the potion to the target. - You can now bind runes with arrows and throwing stars. - New thief skill: claw drag. - When a target is below 50% hitpoints, Thief throwing skill now does +10% damage. - Dual backstab is now possible with a claw and throwing stars. - New damage over time spells for Psionicist and Potion-Throwing Thieves. - Throw now hits 2x and avenge hits 3x. - Shoot will now do 10% more damage when the target's hitpoints are below 30%. - Exp per faux level updated, see xp helpfile.
