FEATURES

NEW HALAS

  • The city of New Halas, namesake of the original city of the Northmen destroyed by cataclysm and war, sits in the heart of the isle of Erollis, a treacherous land of biting temperatures and aggressive fauna within the freezing waters of the Frostfang Sea.  Originally a village of war hardened dwarves, it has since grown due to being blessed by Mithaniel Marr and reconnected with the Shattered Lands of Norrath.  Pilgrims to New Halas can find their way there via a griffin at the docks in the Butcherblock Mountains.  New characters created for New Halas will start at Pilgrim’s Landing, an encampment near the isle of Erollis, in the zone Frostfang Sea.

THE ICY KEEP: RETRIBUTION

  • A new level 90+ x4 raid dungeon with associated quests is aimed to give players an easy to moderate challenge! The pesky Frostfoots have found a new way into the Icy Keep and this time the Ice Maidens are ready for them! Join Snarf, Gerbi and many more in their quest to rid themselves of the newly hatched Ice Dragon, Vrewwx! Consider yourselves warned, however… Before entering you might want to bring 23 of your friends to help you get past his guardians.

UNDERFOOT DEPTHS

  • There is a battle raging as powerful elemental forces gather deep beneath the earth.  Only the most powerful raiding parties can hope to prevail in the Underfoot Depths.

TRAVEL REVAMP

    • Now when selecting a travel location via teleportation, bell, or sokokar/horse/griffon etc. you will do so through a travel map.
    • Simply double click your choice, or select it and then press OK to be whisked away.
    • Mousing over a location when using world teleportation displays a level range and some background information on the area.
    • Bell/carpet zone travel has been consolidated. Bells on the different continents have all been linked together. This means the bells that were in Nektulos are no longer limited to 6 locations. These bells have been reduced to one bell that is linked to other bells across Norrath.

Well i know haven’t posted in sometime, i have been very busy with real life and haven’t been with in my Virutal home that much.

As most everyone by this point knows that SOE Everquest 2 has released their lastest update “Halas Reborn”, I too was able to log in very breifly and was able to create a new toon starting in this area, i made a Barbarian Guardian names Oleaxu, so far the quest are just like any starting area, go kill X amount of “CREATURE ADDED HERE” and come back for your reward, Even though they are the standard quest i still find it thrilling that there is a new area as well as new content, the storyteller mode is a bit confusing and i am still trying to figure this out myself, and the i also logged in and obtained my little frost kitty, too bad we cant use the little fur ball for combat.

Speaking of Kittys, i entered a contest over at Ten Ton Hammers website on “Loading….”, the contest was to win a free Prowler mount yest thats right the New Prowler Mounts that are currently on sale on the Marketplace for $25.00 real dollars…i could not pass the contest up after all all you had to do was send a email to a specific Ten Ton Hammer email that they listed with the subject line “Gimme me a Prowlerrrrrr!! and they would draw the winners on Memorial day, well i submitted my email on the Thursday before, and i totally forgot about entering this contest, so i logged into my email on Tuesday because i was camping all weekend for the holiday because thats what we do at this time of the year..lol

But to make a long story even longer, i logged into the email and there was a email from Ten Ton Hammer…CONGRATULATION YOU WON A PROWLER….I thought i was going to fall out of my chair at that point. So i was one of the 5 winners of the contest i was provided a code to redeem which i did already and i am now the proud father of a Prowler Mount which costed me nothing but a email….woot woot

I am still fine tuning my newest toon in the Halas area, i will be reporting more on their adventures as we progress.

So far from what i have seen of this new content it is great, the area looks great, the house items are fabolus, the City festival is currently in New Halas on my server and i have picked up some great items for my house, however i am now going to buy a bigger home.

Well thats all i have to report on for this time,  i will be adding some photos to this post this evening.

Until next time, Happy Hunting in Norrath!!!

Season1.1

Stardate: [-28] 02990.00

***************************************************************************************

Here is the information on the new update for Star Trek online Season 1.1 Update that’s been Released. Information has been taken from the STO Forums.

***************************************************************************************

Season 1.1 Update – New Features FAQ

Difficulty Settings


By popular demand, we have added the ability to scale difficulty in instanced missions so that you can customize the combat challenges to your liking. The difficult you have been playing on is the default which is considered “Normal”. If you would like more of a challenge, you can adjust this via the Options screen or the Episodes tab on your mission journal.
The available settings are:

  • Normal – The default combat settings prior to this update with no injuries as a result of defeat.
  • Advanced – Increases combat difficulty and introduces injuries as a result of defeat.
  • Elite – Significantly increases combat difficulty with an increased chance of injury as a result of defeat.
  • As an added incentive to the additional risks, there is greater frequency and quality of rewards from defeating enemies on higher difficulty setting. Mission rewards are not impacted by difficulty settings.
    Things to note about difficulty settings:
  • When teamed, the Team Leader’s difficulty setting prior to entering the system determines the difficulty of the mission.
  • Difficulty settings do not apply to Fleet Actions, PVP, Social Maps, or Deepspace Encounters (or any other non-instance map)
  • We have disabled difficulty settings for Special Task Forces temporarily while we adjust the system to work with the increased difficulty of these special missions.
  • You cannot modify difficulty once you have entered a mission map. All settings must be set or modified prior to entering the mission. If you want to change the difficult of a mission you are currently on, all players must exit the mission and wait 15 minutes for the mission to cooldown before your new difficulty settings can be applied.

Injury System

In conjunction with the new Difficulty Settings, we are introducing an injury system that adds added risks to playing on higher difficulties. Depending on the type and severity of the injury sustained, you will notice a decrease in related performance until treated. Federation players will receive a mission that sends you a contact on Earth Space Dock which will explain more about injuries.

Here’s How It Works

  • If your captain, your bridge officers, or your ship is defeated, there is a chance they will receive one injury. This occurs at the time you are defeated, regardless of whether or not you respawn or are resuscitated. Injuries cause various de-buffs depending on the type and severity.
  • If you receive an injury, the severity of that injury is determined by chance, modified by the existence of any untreated injuries already on that character/ship. For example, the chance of receiving a Major or Critical injury is increased if the character/ship has an untreated injury already.
  • Injuries do not occur below level 5 on any difficulty setting and there is a maximum of 50 total injuries each character/ship can sustain at any given time.

Type of Injuries

  • Minor – The negative effect of minor injuries is small enough that it would take several minor injuries before most players would notice any difference in performance.
  • Major – These injuries feel significant, but the character/ship can continue to function with only slight performance decreases. Sustaining more than one major injury of the same type (which modifies the same stat) will begin to cause noticeable performance impacts.
  • Critical – These injuries will cause noticeable performance impacts. A character/ship may still continue on in a mission (and succeed) with more than one critical injury, but each additional critical injury will prove costly to treat and will put the character/ship below the expected potency curve.

How to Treat an Injury

  • Visit a medic/engineer in your faction’s major social hub and pay them energy credits to remove the injuries. Use an injury pack to remove the item yourself.
  • Regenerators treat personnel injuries – Components treat ship “injuries” (damage)
  • Each pack comes in 3 versions that correspond to the severity of the injury.
  • Injury packs are not available in replicators, but some packs are available stores.
  • There’s a chance of finding some types of injury packs as a reward drop.
  • Your medical/engineering staff will automatically treat each Minor Injury 30 minutes after each injury was sustained.

Important Power Updates

  • Several key powers are being updated with this release in order to address concerns and bring their functionality in line with expected design goals.

Feedback Pulse


Goal: This ability can be used to augment DPS by reflecting your opponents directed energy attacks, as well as a deterrent in PvP if currently the main target of a group.
Changes:

  • Now reflects all directed energy types (beams, cannons, turrets)
  • Feedback Pulse is now an energy type, buffed and resisted similar to other damage types
  • Damage reflected by Feedback Pulse hits shields first, but does have 50% shield penetration
  • Overall reflected damage has been reduced for each version. Version 1 damage is about 60%, version 2 about 80%, and version 3 nearly 100%.
  • Countered by: Subnucleonic Beam removes buff; Projectile Weapon or Indirect Damage ignores it.

Subnucleonic Beam

Goal: This ability removes buffs and slows performance of targeted enemy. Counters abilities such as Feedback Pulse, Reverse Shield Polarity, Attack Pattern Alpha, by removing the applied buff.
Changes:

  • This does not put abilities into recharge, but instead slows the recharge time for bridge officer abilities and weapons systems over its duration.
  • Removes currently applied buffs from target at activation time. Buffs can be later applied while subnucleonic beam is active.
  • Countered By: Science Team applied while SNB active removes the debuff; Photonic Officer helps to offset slow recharge

Viral Matrix

Goal: Cripples target, but target has the chance to remove debuff or continue to fight at a disadvantage.
Changes:

  • This is no longer a hold, but instead takes three of a ship’s subsystems offline.
  • Shields subsystems are unaffected, but weapons, engines, and auxiliary will go offline in a random order (each time it is used) over the course of the duration. As the systems go offline in a staggered method, the target has some time to react and does not have all three systems disabled for the entire duration.
  • The best case duration for a subsystem being offline is approx 7.2, 9.6, and 12 seconds for ver 1, 2, and 3 respectively.
  • Countered By: Engineering Team now restores all subsystems; Emergency Power to (system) will restore that particular subsystem.

Commodity Missions

  • Based on feedback with Federation “Aid the Planet” missions, we’ve made changes so these exploration missions are more viable.
  • Federation players will now receive some basic information about what commodities might be useful in the nearby Star Cluster as well as a few commodities to get you started.
  • Unknown Systems within Star Cluster previously were in need of up to 5 different types of commodities, which meant that if you wanted to be prepared, you had to haul around a cargo hold’s worth of goods. We’ve reduced this to 3 types that could possibly be needed.
  • If you didn’t have the commodities needed on board, you had to exit the system and find a trader who would sell them to you. This is where most players would drop the mission. Now, you have the option to replicate the necessary commodities on the spot. Be warned that the cost of doing this is at a premium.
  • If you are looking for better prices on commodities other than your replicator or via trade ships, you can hover over a commodities tooltip to learn which system sells the commodity at the lowest price.
  • As a reward for taking the time to deliver these commodities, the planet you are aiding will now offer you a gift as an additional reward. These gifts could be anything, so open them up and see what you get!

Exchange Improvements

  • If you’ve ever used the exchange to look for an item, you’d noticed it was a bit messy. This update introduces changes to help clean the exchange up and makes some general improvements.
  • When searching for an item, results are now returned in a sorted list by either price or item name
  • Items you place on the exchange will now expire after 1 week if no buyer is found. The item will be returned to you via an attachment using in-game mail.
  • Once this update goes live – many (if not all) items on the exchange will be returned as they are long overdue to expire.
  • To aid in comparison price purchasing, you can now drag and drop an item on the search field to look for similar items

Team Mission Tracker

  • When you are teamed, your mission journal will now show you which missions your team mates are currently working on to aid in team mission planning.

Space Auto-fire Improvements

  • By popular demand (and to save your fingers) we’ve opened up the ability to set all ship weapons to auto-fire. Simply right click a weapon (notice the green outline) to toggle auto-fire. Weapons auto-fire in the order they are placed in the Weapon’s Tray. Keep in mind that having all weapons on auto-fire can lead to danger if you are frequently switching targets.

Store Inventory Changes

  • Mark (Valor, Honor, and Exploration) Stores now sell a variety of equipment and weapon damage types. You’re no longer limited to Anti-Proton damage when searching for Rear Admiral Gear.

Female TOS/Mirror Universe Costume Updates

  • Many of you who received these costumes as part of your purchase bundle were underwhelmed with what you received. While there was some miscommunication as to what was initially available, we are happy to announce that female TOS and Mirror Universe costume updates are now available to those who have them unlocked on their account.

Playable Joined Trill of the Klingon Faction

  • For those who purchased a bundle pack which offered you the ability to play as a Joined Trill, you may have been bummed that you could not create a Joined Trill that was aligned with the Klingon Faction. Well Jack promised it, and here it is. If you have Joined Trill unlocked on your account, you can now make a Joined Trill of the Klingon Faction.

Inventory Stacking Improvements

  • We’ve made a first pass at making things stack better in your inventory as well as when purchasing items in bulk. Let us know what you think!

  • Fixed the Tribble of Borg buff from stacking in certain situations
  • Updated the Borg tactical Cube: They were given more beams, their cannon firing arc is increased to 90 degrees, their recharge timer has been reduced on cannons, and the recharge time on their shield neutralizer has been increased.
  • The reverse shield polarity tooltip now displays the three skills that modify the magnitude/duration. Feedback Pulse has been updated: It now works against all direct energy weapons, not just beams. Reduced reflected damage for each version (Version 1~ 60% , Version 2 ~ 80%, Version 3 ~ 100% ). Reflected damage hits the enemy shield but with 50% penetration to the hull instead of 100%.

The best case duration for a subsystem being offline is approx 7.2, 9.6, and 12 seconds for versions I, II,III respectively. The subsystems affected are Weapons, Engines, and Auxiliary. The order that the subsystems go offline is determined randomly upon each use. Engineering Team will repair subsystems that are offline.

Updated Evasive Maneuvers to use the engine power level as the modifier to turn rate, instead of auxiliary. Increasing power to shields now increases shield damage resistance to any damage. The formula is shield power level divided by 500, so 100% shield power would impart 20% damage resistance.
  • Plasma Grenade now delivers more damage on impact and is comparable to other grenade attacks
  • The short hold that occasionally procs on Palm Strike and Rifle Butt no longer affects players. It will still affect enemies
  • Fixed a display icon error that would generate a white square rather than the icon for Dampening Field.
  • Increased Donotra’s Scimitar resistances
  • Battleships and Dreadnoughts now have some innate resistance to some control powers – like subsystems offline, or jam sensors or scramble sensors, and viral matrix. The resistance reduces the effective duration of such abilities when used against these targets
  • Fixed an issue in the tooltip for Nadion Inversion. The power is unchanged
  • Confuse debuffs will no longer persist after a map change to prevent griefing and NPC killing
  • Fixed a bug that would allow multiple copies of viral matrix to apply in a single attack. This issue also prevented Engineering Team from cleanly removing Viral Matrix.

  • Commodities have become more exclusive to different social hubs, with different prices at different places.

  • All window types should now show up on C-Store Federation Ships

Characters and Costumes

Known Issues:

  • The “learn about commodities” mission will not complete properly if your inventory is full at the time you receive your free commodities. Make sure you have at least one space available to prevent this issue.
  • Tooltips for high end ground shields and weapons have vastly incorrect values for some attributes (while the actual items are themselves correct) and state that they are bind on pickup when they are bind one equip.

Fixes for both of the above known issues are being tested internally and will make it into the next game update.

Ok so wow what an update, i can only imagine how long this is going to take me to download, since i am on DSL, currently I’m at work so i can’t take advantage of clicking on the game client.

Good luck to all that are in playing the new features, C-Store items, and all that is Star Trek Online.

Live Long & Prosper my friends!!

PERAH’CELSIS’ ABOMINABLE LABORATORY

QUESTS

  • The ring event for King Speleothem should now be respawning properly.

PALACE OF ROEHN THEER

  • Maalus Imbued priest clones have been balanced. Also the demoralization spell it casts on players no longer stifles, and is curable as a normal arcane spell.

PERAH’CELSIS’ ABOMINABLE LABORATORY
