    -- Bandolier Containers will now increase the speed of throwing attacks in teh same fashion that quivers increase the speed of archery attacks.
    -- The 'Bandoleer of Luclin' has been renamed 'Bandolier of Luclin' and has had its weight reduction reduced from 100% to 10%
    - Corrected a bug where 'Darkened Blackburrow Trinket' could only reach 98% of its potential power
    - In classic zones (Velious and earlier), many weapons, shields, and other held items have reverted ot their classic appearance.

    I was bracing for bad news...

    I am so excited!

    Please extend the skeleton changes to Necro pets.
    Tseroth91 and PathToEternity like this.
  4. Bobbybick Augur

    If I had a necro of the appropriate level I would test that for you when the servers came up. I'm hopeful that the pet models will also revert when the owner is in the older zones.

    Test is up, I'm running around checking out the replaced models.
  5. Syllestrae Elder

    Does that fix the shaman dot dmg issue?

    I like the old NPC models :)

    they should just make all models pre-ldon optional instead of forcing it on people.
  8. Jaera Augur

    I'm running around Gates of Discord and not seeing any AoCs...

    The more time we have to poke at these, the more time we can find glaring bugs. Any word on these devs?

    Edit: Found an AoC! Txevu looks like its instanced!
  9. Bobbybick Augur

    So pets are still the new models for those that asked. And the hunter achievements for Classic/Kunark are EXTENSIVE, they even got ol Dunedigger and King Xorbb on there!

    Good luck completing all of those ;)

    Was hoping with this change that troll beastlords would get their aligator pets back but sadly, they did not.
  11. Brelic Elder

    Are the classic models a toggle or they are mainstream for everyone?
  12. Bobbybick Augur

    All the NPC models in the oldworld are the old models by default, I don't believe there is any way to toggle between new/old.
  13. Brelic Elder

    Is your stream still up? Keeps saying your streaming but when try to watch says your offline.
  14. Bobbybick Augur

    No, I finished checking out the old models.
  15. Raltar Augur

    They going to make us use the ugly old player models, too? I'm not a fan since I can't opt out of it.
  16. Bobbybick Augur

    Those are still a toggleable option that each player can choose what new/old player-character models they want to see.
  17. Aegir Augur

    Damn and they put Shellara Ebbunter in Kedge keep too. Ouch!
  18. Bobbybick Augur

    And Bilge Farfathom in Dagnor.

    I thought it was pretty funny that Lord Grimrot in South karana got tagged too, gonna be some mad clerics that try to do Aegis of Life.

    Thank goodness they brought back the stuff that really makes the game feel like it's in its heyday!

    For me, it was never the sanctioned RMT or the rampant automation that made the game lose its charm. It was the new skeleton models.
  20. Brelic Elder

    Don't worry I'm sure hey will take away that option to; in a future patch...
