You're reading that wrong.

The Coin Lords have commissioned the (House Phiarlain to remodel the interior of their theater house)

or

The Coin Lords have commissioned the House Phiarlain to remodel the interior of the House Phiarlain theater house

The "their" applies to the last noun used, in this case "House Phiarlain", not "Coin Lords".

but why would the coin lords (ever frugal with their coin) pay House P to fix House P's theater?

what bug is this?


dont know. dont have any characters that care about ac to try it.
edit: what asp said.

The one where naked Barbarians get easier to hit when they get stronger from rage enhancements.
Seems those extra muscles make for a bigger target area.

Some Barbs think they should have a higher AC when raging in a loin cloth.

Haha, I was wondering about the same thing. Especially in light of this subject:
http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=155296

It becomes clearer and clearer that that both House Phiarlan and the Coin Lords are puposefully trying to distract attention from the issue. I wonder why...

Just another reminder for those of you dealing with your newly fixed handwraps and other items:

Read the release notes very carefully. Some item fixes are retroactive, while others require you to place your item into a Stone of Change first to be fixed. If you have an item that indicates you need to visit a Stone of Change to receive the bug fix, all you need to do is place the item into the Stone of Change and hit combine, no extra ingredients required. The Stone of Change will give you back the fixed version of the item in question.

Just a question: did you by chance mean CAN instead of CANNOT? Cause if that is so someone better edit that before someone makes a post complaining about that one :D

"In rare cases, level 10 and level 11 race restricted handwraps were not working as intended. These dysfunctional handwraps will no longer drop. Existing versions of the handwrapscannot be repaired by using a Stone of Change ritual. "

So I guess this means things like weighted and stat damage are working on them or are they still broken?

No we actually did mean that you cannot. It's also currently in the known issues (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=150534) that the dysfunctional versions that dropped are still dysfunctional, but there will be no more dysfunctional ones dropping any more. We kept trying to put those in the Stone of Change, but the Stone of Change keeps spitting them out like "BLECH!"

Thanks for removing the newest "feature" so our newest raids wouldn't have the warded chests ransacked by all the people who think it's cool to exploit....

The alchemical ritual works on +5 mfp now?

tolero can we at least have a list of the prefixes and suffixes on handwraps that we know don't work?

i know my greater banes don't work
weakening and maladroit don't work
there is also a mystery invisible suffix that is adding a ton to the minimum level of handwraps (i'm seeing +1 flaming burst handwraps ml12)
weighted isn't adding to stunning fist or blow dc

transmuting doesn't drop on handwraps (i presume this is because someone could bypass your dr?)

Welcome to the Release Notes for Dungeons & Dragons Online! These release notes were posted August 20th, 2008

1.1 Of Special Note
The tokens from the Race to the Subterrane event have been removed. The Ritualists of the Twelve thank the citizens of Stormreach for their recent aid with unlocking the Subterrane.

When leaving the 'Fire Caves' in Three Barrel Cove, players will now end up in the landscape and have the proper quest journal and 'Recall' button available to them.

1.3 Shopping
Quest rewards will no longer mistakenly appear in the buy-back window

1.4 Spells
King Raiyum’s mummy friends, and several other monsters across Xen’drik will no longer be afraid of area effect spells and will spawn correctly. Please see the Known Issues list for specific information regarding King Raiyum.
Monsters that "phase in" or "unburrow" inside a persistent AoE spell (acid fog, wall of fire, etc) should now be affected by the spell more reliably.

1.5 Skills, Feats & Abilities
Sneaky Dwarves can now attack while they are holding their shields.

1.6 Enhancements
The descriptions for the Barbarian Power Rage enhancements 1-4 now properly mention the additional AC penalty received with these enhancements.

1.7 Items
Handwraps
Alignment based handwraps will correctly bypass Damage reduction. This change will be retroactive, and affect handwraps already in-game.
In rare cases, level 10 and level 11 race restricted handwraps were not working as intended. These dysfunctional handwraps will no longer drop. Existing versions of the handwraps cannot be repaired by using a Stone of Change ritual.
Ghost Touch hand wraps are now working properly. Additionally a stone of change recipe can be used to repair existing the handwraps.
The Stone of Change ritual for force effects on handwraps is now working properly. Existing handwraps with the force rituals applied can be repaired by placing them in the stone of change.
The Coin Lords have made repairs to the beloved Eternal Titan Wand, and it will now function properly for lucky recipients.
The House Deneith has decided that only those worthy of their fine quivers should receive them, and so favor quivers provided by House Deneith are now correctly Bound on Acquire.
HP regeneration items are no longer negating the effects of Monk Wholeness of Body.

1.8 Crafting
Alchemical bonuses used on armor and shields are now being applied properly. This change also affects equipment that has already had the ritual applied.
The Stone of Change is now accepting handwraps in addition to Tasty Hams.

1.9 Monsters
All version of the Marilith - such as the Queen Lailat of the pre-raid and raid, as well as the Marilith in Prison of the Planes - will fight back against players. Queen Lailat will no longer have a chance of going invulnerable after teleporting away.

1.10 Quests
Ruins of Thernal: Escort the Expedition
Coyle has decided that attacking inanimate objects was not helpful to his party members.
Foundation of Discord
Patrick the Maniacal's behavior has been change such that he will no longer run around the area he drops into. This should prevent him from disappearing from the quest.
Eyegouger’s Basement
We have received a postcard from the Haverdasher, who had been on vacation in the Lhazaar Principalities. He is back, and expects Eyegouger's basement will need some cleaning.

1.11 Other
A graphical issue triggered by the resurrection lever in the Reaver’s Fate has been resolved
The Coin Lords have commissioned the House Phiarlain to remodel the interior of their theater house.
Players will no longer be able to enter the PvP matching system when outside of a Tavern area.
It is no longer possible to abandon the The Xoriat Hound and Horned Devil Raid raid quests.
Lotigath, one of the rare spawns, will no longer give string table errors when speaking to him after collecting his bounty.

does that mean that the shield bonus stacks with the armor bonus?

offering +6 strength for free via enhancements without some kind of penalty would be a horrible imbalancing joke. Err, WAS a horrible imbalancing joke.

Well... based on the notes:


1.6 Enhancements
The descriptions for the Barbarian Power Rage enhancements 1-4 now properly mention the additional AC penalty received with these enhancements.


This makes it sound like it has been this way for a while, if not always.

BTW: Wasn't the DX10 work supposed to be in this patch too, is it there?

They didn't mess up the timer. You could simply beat the raid and examine your end reward, abandon the quest without taking end reward and go do it again instantly, bypassing the timer, gaining the ability to ransack the warded chest...

how do people even come up with this stuff? mailing soul stones, bypassing timers. who actually sits there and tries thing after thing til they find an exploit? granted there isnt much else to do, but still...

That particular exploit was discovered quite a while back and all of the other raids were patched. Someone forgot to flag the mod 7 raids apparently.
