Alter Aeon October 2013 Updates and Halloween Bash

It's about time for the yearly Halloween Havoc bash on Alter Aeon! We have events planned starting next thursday and covering the entire weekend. The event schedule will be posted in-game in the next few days.

There's also been a lot of updates over the last few weeks:

Command improvements and ease of use:
- various improvements to auto-remove
- the 'group' casting target now ignores filtered minions
- add a 'fame' command to help re-find moved fame
- add 'rescue minions' to help warriors manage minion armies
- abort now stops eqset changing
- more blind and visually impaired support improvements

Updates to crafting and enchanting:
- add new command 'enchant', for enchanting items
- add several new weapon-specific enchantments
- add two new general enchantments
- it is now possible to find unique/random weapons
- add search and display of potion recipes
- updates to potion brewing and strengthening of brew focus

General improvements:
- the natural stat training limit has been raised to 26
- allow clans to set a minimum member rank for some clan functions
- curse ward is now a normal, dispellable buff
- enchanted handgear now works with unarmed combat

Area and Content Updates:

- The Monastery of Dreams has been updated and re-released on the island of Archais at level 29. There are several new quests, and the zone is much bigger than before.

- The North Ralnoth Slums have also been updated and re-released at level 29, with new quests and bosses.

- There are also three new high level areas on the mainland: the village of Xochitl and Castle Camelot at level 34 are fairly safe and should provide interesting quests to complete. The third area, the sunken temple of Magar, is an extremely dangerous high level group zone and should be approached with caution.

Finally, the new Druid class is on schedule for release near the end of November. We hope to see everyone there for the release!

- Pumpkin cannons will be set up in various locations.

- Several pk arena battles will be run, with rewards for the winners.


Saturday, Nov 02

- A new level 22 area, a thieves den, will be opened on Archais southwest of Gad's Mountain. This is a mid level area, with several quest hooks back to Seaside and Gad's Landing.

- Costume contests (see board 8 on friday night for details)

- The last of the pk arena battles will be run, with rewards for the winners.


Sunday, Nov 03

- For latecomers, most of the long-running activities will still be open, but the contests and pk battles won't be run.


We hope to see you there!
