« on: January 12, 2013, 07:18:00 AM »
Synergies V1.37 Released January 6th
[spoiler]-Remove the changes to NORMAL LOOT chances (both legendary and normal loot, i have a feeling it will effect the game TOO Much and can't truly leave it like this)
-removed all the 0 to -1 changes as well from 1.36A
-Reverted an old change... BASE LOOT now has a 7000 chance to drop instead of 5000 (halfway between vanilla and where it was) you will see a LOT less magic dropping, for those who want it, table mountain has things available at a slightly increased cost, and sell values are higher, and we have gold mine to play!

-Bone needles now go from 30 DPS to 40 dps.

Toxic Hex changes:
tier0:Pulls enemies to it. can effect 3 targets, has a chance to stun

--Adding another modders 'mod' into synergies
Moded's legendary weapons adds 35 new legendary weapons to the legendary list.  http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=50786#p438478
these legendaries will be balanced if need be, but I will start out by leaving it as is.  they will NOT be sold on merchants in synergies, but instead the over all legendary drop rate will be altered.
--with Moded's added legendaries I am changing how legendaries drop in synergies.

Legendary Weapon spawn chances
Champion Legendary chance changing from 1 in 2,000 to 1 in 500
Normal Legendary chance changing from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 2,000  (any mob that specifically tries for legendary that is not a champion)

Changing boss legendary chance from a 0 entry to a -1 (not sure how much this will effect, but it could)
Changing champion legendary chance from a 0 entry to a -1 (not sure how much this will effect, but it could)
Changing map-boss legendary chance from a 0 entry to a -1 (not sure how much this will effect, but it could)

Changing NORMAL loot from:
46799 chances of nothing
3200 chances of treasure
1 chance of legendary

to (this could have adverse effects, we'll see)
15600 chances of nothing
1067 chances of treasure
10 chances of legendary

i divided both the original numbers by 3 to keep them in preportion of each other it should maintain the same rate of drops for them, but the +10 on legendaries is FAR FAR greater then just 10 pnts this way.[/spoiler]


Synergies V1.36 Released January 4th  Major Necromancer Update
[spoiler][size=150]Major Game Change[/size]
Created a whole new city:  TABLE MOUNTAIN.
table mountain has had its exits removed, you can't walk out of the dungeon without using the portal!

Moved all Enchanters out of Estherian Enclaive to Table mountain, added Master Enchanter
Moved all vendors out of Mapworks to Table Mountain.  << all enchanters WILL get a mesh/texture change soon >>
added gem saver/destroyer to table mountain
added transmuter to table mountain

Added A portal to teleport to Table Mountain to general merchant inventory, and fixing the local waypoint to work with the waypoint system!
made all general vendors sell portals to table mountain, table mountains waypoint system only connects to mapworks, as per all other acts. (this is actually act 5 atm)

[size=150]General Changes[/size]
Darkness falls has a universal and new icon
Znojmo maps are now access by portal rather then mapworks
Removed the HARDDIFFICULTY gold drop graph, back to vanilla standards

[size=150]Pet Support added[/size]
5 fish added to Salan merchant in Table Mountain, perminently changes your pet to the new synergies pets:  Zombie, Skeleton, Skeleton with cloths, Spirit, Dire wolf.

[size=150]Necromancer Skill Changes[/size]
-Removed Bone Needles ability to steal life.

-Changed Bone needles cooldown to start at 1.2 seconds and end at .1 seconds from 1 pnt to somewhere around 12pnts.
needed to rebalance the DPS of this skill, being able to chain shoot 6 needles was insane.. the damage per shot has been REDUCED per tier due to cooldown reduction and needle increase.
added a soakscale to the dps. <rapid fire bone needles>

[size=150]Skill Progression Changes[/size]
