    Default Lamannia Update 35 Release Notes

    Lamannia Update 35 Release Notes
    Here are the Lamannia Release Notes for Update 35, released for preview on 3/7/2017. These notes will change over time.

    Of Special Note:

    Dragonborn
    A new player race is available! The Dragonborn is free to VIP players, and available to purchase in the DDO Store for everyone else. NOTE: Character paths are not available for Dragonborn characters at this time.

    New Raid
    A new raid is now available for preview! Riding the Storm Out can be accessed by the NPC named Dalwyneth, located near the fountain in the Stormreach Marketplace.

    Two New Quests
    Two new quests are now available for preview! Both The Newcomers and Black and Blue can be accessed by the NPC's Yoldorim and Mikyra respectively, located near the fountain in the Stormreach Marketplace.

    Racial Reincarnation
    Players can now choose to have their characters undergo a racial reincarnation! The process is similar to a True Reincarnation, and can be done by visiting the Reincarnation Grove in the Hall of Heroes. A new item called a Heart of Blood is needed for Reincarnation, which can be purchased in the DDO Store and via Tokens of the Twelve.

    News and Notes:

    Combat
    Monsters killed by instant death effects will now share their aggro normally to their allies.

    Dragonborn
    Dragonborn's enhancement tree is available for preview.

    • Monsters
    • Air elementals only knock down characters when actively engaging in their charge behavior.


    Reincarnation

    • Human: +1 Haggle, +1 Wisdom
    • Dragonborn: +1 Spellcraft, +1 Charisma

    Items are preserved in inventory during a Racial Reincarnation, instead of being placed in your TR Cache.

    Miscellaneous
    • The Captain has been added to the Lamannia Test Dojo. This NPC gives characters all Guild Buffs available.
    • Update 35 items can now be found in the Test Dojo.
    • The Character Bank tab has been updated to match the Shared Account bank UI. (Note: This is very likely NOT going live until after U35.)

    Known Issues:
    • Racial Reincarnation
      • Racial Reincarnation currently grants the +Skill feat associated with the race each time you reincarnate instead of granting the +Ability Score feat the second time and then the +Racial AP feat the third time.
      • Racial Reincarnation currently preserves items in your inventory and does not create a TR Cache. (Meant to mimic a Heroic True but currently mimics a Lesser)
      • Racial Reincarnation does not currently increment your Ability Score available at character creation as it is intended to. (Meant to mimic a Heroic True but currently mimics a Lesser)
    • Dragonborn
      • In order to create a Dragonborn you must either be a VIP or purchase BOTH the Dragonborn race AND the Gnome race from the DDO store.
      • Base Draconic Ancestry Feats always grant only 1 elemental resistance instead of 1 per character level as described.
      • All of the Draconic Ancestry Feats share the Drow Spell Resistance feat icon.
      • Memory of Flight tree tooltip lists "Phantasmal Killer" description as if it were providing a Phantasmal Killer SLA.
      • Memory of Flight currently costs Spell Points. It should not have a Spell Point cost.
      • Dragonborn use the human icon in both the Who tab of the social menu and in their Enhancement tree.
      • Dragonborn characters have no personal focus orb image.
      • Dragonborn selected focus orb image is a kobold.
      • A small portion of armors have pieces which visually flow in and out with character breathe on a male dragonborn while the other pieces of the armor remain static causing noticeable clipping.
      • Bolts fired out of a crossbow by dragonborn (both male and female) originate below the crossbow itself.
      • Some pre-built character paths are not currently working with Dragonborn.
    • Quests
      • The two new quests have no entry waypoints out of the quests.
      • Some monsters are dropping treasure bags that can not be interacted with.
      • Some Dragons are missing a breathe attack.
    • Attempting to purchase Character Bank capacity upgrades for Platinum does nothing even if you have the requisite House Kundarak Favor.
    • Bladeforged tree contains the T4 Memories of the Last War which is meant to be exclusive to Warforged (Though you can't take any of the enhancements as you don't have access to the pre-requisites).

    Hmmmm

    - When you racially reincarnate, do you get to 30 and reset back to level 20 (basically replacing epic reincarnation)? Is this more like a lesser reincarnation?

    - What do you mean by "racial action point?"

    - Are these retroactive? I mean, do people who have 30, 40, 50+ lives automatically gain these feats?

    Everything else about this update sounds awesome, but this is terrifying. You want to turn the character bank into the unorganized pile that is the shared bank? Please do not do this. If anything go the other way and make the shared bank like the character bank. A search function is nice, but being able to do some basic organization other than a long list is SO much more important.

    Please, please, please.

    Fantastic - now the only down side to to actually consider a choice between Warforged and Bladeforged...

    - 20+ to 1 I believe since you use tokens of the twelve.

    - An enhancement point you can only use in the racial tree I imagine.

    - They've stated no, they are not retroactive because nobody has done a racial reincarnation before. Which means you probably can't double dip heroic/racial TR's like you can iconic/heroics TR's.

    My impression is it works like a Heroic TR. And it's one or the other with HTR, not both, so there's nothing to retroactively gain because no one as done a racial reincarnation yet.

    In other words expect to see a lot of warlocks around the harbor when this goes live!

    In our evaluation, Human and Halfling are relatively strong Enhancement trees that neither needed extra power (relative to the other Race trees), nor needed any particular abilities improved or repaired. In the feedback threads to come, we'd be interested to hear opinions on the subject.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    I'm starting to feel overwhelmed, already. *groan*

    I was hoping it would be something akin to a lesser reincarnation, where you can simply change your race, but I guess not.

    Any chance we can have the items of U35 posted by a Developer himself? Or the Dragonborn tree?

    Can you change race when you Racial Reincarnate? If not, this means you would have to get back to 20 just to do a True Reincarnation in order to change your race... Hope that's not the case.

    Racial Reincarnation, in many ways, acts as a Heroic True Reincarnation where the Past Life Feat you receive is based on your Race instead of your Class. So yes, you may alter your race and class at that time, as you are starting at level 1. (EDIT: Or 15, if your next life is Iconic. Again, like Heroic True.)

    +1 guys. Looks good.
    You can run level cap quests for epic xp, but you can't run non-level cap quests for RXP when you're capped.

    A Criticism and Reccomendation:

    Past lives should be shared across an account.
    Racial TRing is making it harder on new players, and vets who want multiple toons.

    Thanks!

    So you can either racially reincarnate or heroic reincarnate, but not both? As in, you heroic reincarnate, you don't get the past lives for both the class and the race?

    Bought Dragonborn (9999 TP), created toon, can't enter as it says I do not own the class. At least it looks cool, not like that abomination of Gnomes.
