    Rows and rows of useless enchantment books... no more!

    [​IMG]
    NEW GAME MECHANIC: ALCHEMY
    Alchemy gives a new use to Enchantment Books that may just be sitting around taking up space... let's get into this brand new mechanic.

    Alchemy can be accessed by speaking to The Alchemist in all markets, or by using the /alchemy command.

    [​IMG]
    Arcane Dust
    Arcane Dust is the raw essence that makes up the magic within enchantment books. The better the enchantment book, the more dust it can contain.

    There are 3 types of Arcane Dust:​
    1. Lesser Arcane Dust (Worth at least 1 Arcane)​
    2. Arcane Dust (Worth at least 25 Arcane)​
    3. Greater Arcane Dust (Worth at least 60 Arcane)​
    When you turn an enchantment book to dust, the book will be destroyed and leave the enchanted remains in its place.

    [​IMG]
    Upgrading Enchantment Books
    When you receive Arcane Dust, you can use it to power up other enchantment books of your choice. Simply pick up the dust you'd like to use, and click it onto your enchantment book. The Arcane Power of the book will now appear.

    [​IMG]

    When the Arcane Power of a book reaches 100%, bring it back to The Alchemist to alchemize it into the next level.

    [​IMG]

    Once a book is ready to alchemize, you can continue to give it Arcane Dust to OVERLOAD the book. Overloading a book has no limit, and will improve the success rate of the book alchemizing into the next level.

    [​IMG]
    Alchemizing
    Upon successfully alchemizing your book, you'll receive the specified upgrade.

    If your alchemization FAILS, one of two things can happen depending on the enchantment rarity:​
    • COMMON, ANCIENT, and LEGENDARY enchantments will stay at their current level, but the Arcane Power and Overload value will be LOST.​
    • IMMORTAL enchantments will be DESTROYED completely.​
    [​IMG]
    Arcane Shards
    Arcane Shards can appear as a result of dusting Immortal Enchantment Books, along with the usual Arcane Dust. If you receive an Arcane Shard, give it to The Alchemist and you may just be one of a few to discover an IMMORTAL SHARD!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    NEW SPECIAL ITEM: ORB OF IMMUNITY
    An Orb of Immunity is a brand new item for players that want to explore the warzone without risk by becoming completely invulnerable from PVP damage for a short time. These orbs can only be equipped when inside PVP-free areas and cannot be stacked.

    While Immune, you cannot attack or be attacked in the warzone. You are still vulnerable to natural damage and AOE damage, however:​
    • Spells, batbombs, and some blasters will still affect you​
    • Fire, lava, and other natural damage will still affect you​
    • Negative potion effects will still affect you​
    It's recommended to armor up, just in case.

    Players who are Immune will be surrounded with green sparkles:
    [​IMG]

    Should you wish to end your immunity early, you may do so with /immunity end.​

    NEW CUSTOM ENCHANTMENT & IMMORTAL KIT: TANK

    Tank is our first potion effect based enchantment. While you're wearing armor with the enchantment, your Maximum Health will be increased, up to 10 additional hearts on the enchantment max level.

    Tank is available on new warzone and rune loot, as well as from our new Tank Immortal Kit: Savage Games | Welcome

    [​IMG]
    MAJOR ENCHANTMENT BALANCING
    We've rebalanced some commonly used enchantments with this update, as well.
    • Evasion: Chance to dodge debuffed
    • Freeze: Duration and intensity debuffed
    • Backstab: Damage debuffed
    • Bloodsuck: Activation chance debuffed
    • Shatter: Buffed durability damage
    Other Noteable Changes
    • Chat Tooltips Mouseover a player name to see their rank, level, and balance! Click names to pre-type a /msg command to them.
    • Immunity Stuff /immunity command to check time left as well as ending your immunity early
    • Generous Ore Seed Boxes Fixed a bug that caused ore seed boxes to give one more roll than they should have. (Sorry!)
    • Public Island Changes Public Islands now close themselves if they're empty for about a minute. We're still looking at ways for people to keep their island open when they're offline, so this is a temporary change.
    • Enchant Book Rarity Enchantment books now keep their rarity when taken out of enchantment tables after a disenchantment
    • Log Everything A new logging plugin will log most actions in-server now, making evidence for mods and staff a bit more robust
    • Bugfixes and Optimizations ...and now a round of applause!

    So, regarding the update itself, looks great! Finally a reason to utilize those dubs of worthless enchant books...

    In regards to the Tank ikit... was it supposed to come with Tank V as per the store page, or Tank III in the drop?
