Alter Aeon February 2019 Update

Last month we celebrated Alter Aeon’s 24th anniversary! It is our sincere hope that everyone who was able to participate in the anniversary event had a good time. Our next worldwide event will be in March.

In January we saw the following additions to the code:

  • a level 26 druid skill ‘wickercraft’, so you can finally do something with those bundles of sticks you keep gathering

  • a level 38 druid skill ‘wicker effigy’, for a bit of voodoo flavor

  • a level 38 warrior skill ‘indomitable will’, which allows warriors to break free from immobilizing effects such as entangling roots and prison spells

  • the reorganizing of warrior weapon improvement skills, which places ‘hone weapon’ at level 16

  • a level 38 necromancer spell ‘coffin’, for weaponizing prison spells

  • a level 38 necromancer skill ‘infernal visage’ that turns you into a romping, stomping demon creature

  • additional options to ‘consult demon’ to help find objects for jobs or change alignment

Also, you can now specify a direction when scanning. Carried containers can now be emptied into other carried containers, or onto tables. A ‘rune’ command was added for looking up runewords, and the ‘preservation’ spell now works on harvested bones and skins.

Upcoming February additions to the code will include:

  • the option to split spellcomps, herbs, and most other splittable items into specific amounts

  • small tweaks to metallurgy for more variety in jewelry stats

  • changes to the ‘soulsteal’ spell to make it easier to use and more fair in groups

  • additional level 38 abilities, probably for the mage class next

And much, much more!

In the building department, we had two new areas released last month:

  • Cliffside Island, a level 43 group 4 zone for Gianasi

  • Ishi Province, a level 41 zone for Suboria

Our building teams are working toward a number of new areas for all different level ranges. For more information, please see our Youtube presentation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=109C1D1O5CI

We’re also making a renewed effort at keeping the Alter Aeon wiki relevant. You can visit the wiki at http://wiki.alteraeon.com
