June 09 2011- Build Notes
Welcome to 188.8.131.521!
Client Patch 2.7.0 (client version 184.108.40.2061)
Client Hotfix 06/22/11
- Floating combat text now correctly shows numbers for healing.
- Battle Trauma Bandages will now be used up correctly when applied.
- NPCs in Keeps are again respawning at their intended rates.
- Fixed a crash issue when submitting payment through PayPal.

Server Hotfix 06/09/11
- Fixed a server crash with capturing towers.
- You will now only be flagged for PvP in the capital city if the opposite faction owns all of the keeps.
- Players already in the city when the final keep is captured will not be flagged unless they attack another player or leave the area and come back. This allows for non-combat characters to remain in the city without danger of being attacked.
- The kings can now be interacted with to turn in and accept appropriate quests.
New with 2.7.0
- Keeps have been built throughout Alganon! Each faction now controls 4 Keep fortifications on their home continent. Capturing all 4 of your enemy's Keeps will allow you to attack your enemy's home city for a chance at epic PvP loot and other great items! For more information on Keep capturing and rules, visit the Keeps Information page in the MyAlganon Library.
- Due to this, Towers have been reset back to their default factions.
- Siege Weapons have been added to the game. These can be summoned anywhere, but only do damage to targets inside PvP Keep areas.
- PvP Studies are now fully implemented. Customize your character for the way you like to PvP!
- PvP Studies are now available at Renown Level 3.
- The study Siege Weapons can now be purchased with Tribute at Renown Level 3, or will be granted for free upon the completion of the quest "The Secret Project".
- The Renown Level cap has been increased to 20. Along with it comes new titles, quests and Renown level rewards.
- New PvP gear is available at Renown Level 11+
- The servers have been merged! Hokk and Adrios have been merged into one server under the name Matma'el. Now players from both servers can work together in both PvP and PvE gameplay! Due to this merge we have made the following noteworthy changes.
- Due to the merging we have flagged characters to be renamed whose first names existed on both servers. This will be shown as an asterisk (*) next to the character name on the Character Select screen. Character naming is done on a first-come-first-serve basis, so it's important that you check your account sooner rather than later to make sure any flagged characters get renamed appropriately.
- We did not want to delete any existing characters with the merge, so we have allowed overflow beyond the 8 character limit for accounts with more than 8 characters across both servers. These accounts will now have up to 16 characters listed on the Character Select screen (a max of 8 already-created characters per merged server). It's important to note that the maximum number of characters a player can create is still 8. New characters cannot be created until the extras are deleted. As an example, if you have 10 characters listed and wish to make a new one you will need to delete characters to get down to 7 (which leaves one open character slot).
- All Study queues have been cleared. No progress has been lost on existing learned Studies.
- Guilds formerly on Hokk have been disbanded and all items/money in the guild bank mailed to the Guild Leader. Guilds formerly on Adrios will see no change. We explored several options for guilds with the merge, but in the end the transfer process was not built for guild transfers, so we needed to take steps on one of the servers to make sure all items/gold/characters/etc were not lost. Players from Hokk can re-form their guilds on Matma'el or join their new brethren in an existing guild. If you have a question on this change, please contact a CSGM.
- /stuck has changed functionality. It now teleports you to the nearest deathstone and uses up your Recall action timer. This change was made to prevent several exploits in the game world.
- The Barber Shop can now be used to resize characters.
- New, more detailed tutorials have been added to the Library to better flesh out the many features of Alganon.
