EE 16.2 Preliminary Release Notes

Bob
These are the Preliminary Release Notes for Early Enrollment v16.2. We deployed a Final Candidate for EE 16.2 to the Test Server on Thursday, January 31, and plan to deploy that build to Live during Daily Maintenance on Thursday, February 7, assuming that it performs well during final testing.

What Is In This Release

This release fixes a few issues with enchanting, including a general issue with weapon enchantment keywords not working and some specific enchantments that weren’t working properly. Fixes were also made to the way escalation event encounters are cleaned up after an event is completed. As always, multiple smaller improvements were also made to various systems in order to keep steadily improving the overall player experience.

Full Release Notes

Enchanting:
  • Weapon enchantments get the full benefits of their keywords.
  • Lesser/Greater/Superior Critical Resistance provides Critical Resistance instead of Improved Critical.
  • Dark Shielding provides Negative Resistance instead of Sonic Resistance.
  • Contingency Protection provides Sonic Resistance instead of Negative Resistance.
  • Descriptions for enchantments that provide multiple keywords were cleaned up to be more readable.

Escalations/Quests:
  • After an event ends, all remaining event encounters will disappear as soon as they’re out of sight, or after 5 minutes, whichever happens sooner.
  • The minimum delay between events increased to 6 minutes to ensure that all encountersfrom a previous completed event are gone before a new event starts.
  • Bloodbriar Goblin Raid has more standard strength drops.
  • Questgivers for kill quests state which prerequisites are missing when right-clicked on.

Items/Crafting:
  • Enchanting salvage drops are spread more evenly, particularly between tiers.
  • Tian Xia enemies drop Black Pearls as salvage.
  • Mordant Spire loot bonuses are based on Geography instead of Local.
  • Necromancers and cultists drop robes instead of clothes as salvage.
  • Paueliel Log is spelled correctly.
  • A warning is shown in the Crafting Window if insufficient Azoth is applied.

Advancement:
  • Shield attacks require Shield Expert achievement at same points other attacks require similar achievements.
  • Nature is no longer available at any trainers, since there currently aren’t enemies that base their loot bonuses on Nature.


Settlements/Companies:
  • War Wizard structures face the correct direction in player settlements.
  • Deleted leaders are removed from companies even if they’re the last remaining leader.

UI:
  • Editing pass on the help text to fix spacing issues and minor typos.
  • Item Confirm Window says OK instead of Ok.

Today's a snow day for Paizo, so I won't be able to do the final testing on this build until tomorrow. It's held up great so far and I don't anticipate any problems, but better safe than sorry, so I've pushed back the expected Live deployment date to Wednesday, February 6.

Suffering the same weather so I understand! Have a nice snow-day! smile

Down here, Western Sydney was hitting 110F last week and towns out west were getting to 120F for several days in a row. Poor old snakes hate it and it killed lots of fish. Well and truly the hottest January nationwide on record.

Bit cooler this week though.

It's another icy day in paradise, so I'm pushing the release date for 16.2 back another day.
