OE 2.5 Release Notes

Bob
These are the Release Notes for Open Enrollment v2.5. The release build of OE 2.5 has been running on the Test Server since Tuesday, March 9 and was deployed to Live on Wednesday, March 17.

What Is In This Release

This release focuses on making ten hexes around Fort Inevitable claimable by adding locations to place holdings in them and on returning water to the river starting near Canis Castrum and running past Succinct Prime. Blessings of Pharasma are now loot boxes that deliver a choice of any Boon from Pharasma (Lady’s Health, Lady’s Favor, Lady’s Foresight or Lady’s Protection) and those boons are being fixed to last their proper durations. Other improvements were also made in order to keep steadily improving the overall player experience.

Full Release Notes

Hexes:
  • Ten hexes around Fort Inevitable can have holdings placed in them, allowing them to be claimed. First-week building rights for these hexes were auctioned off in the Blessed Territory Auction. If you find one of those hexes unclaimed before Daily Maintenance on Wednesday, March 24, do not place holdings there without permission of the company or settlement that has first-week building rights there. If you do, your buildings in that hex may be torn down without warning.
  • Hex -1,2 near Thornkeep is once again an NPC hex, in keeping with the player tavern located there. That also means the gathering nodes there are back to dropping only Tier 1 mats.

Water:
  • The river that starts near Canis Castrum and runs past Succinct Prime now has water in it. If the technique used for adding it doesn’t cause a lot of performance issues, we’ll continue adding more water to the world in future updates.

Items:
  • Blessings of Pharasma are now loot boxes and right-clicking on them provides a choice of one Boon from Pharasma (Lady’s Health, Lady’s Favor, Lady’s Foresight or Lady’s Protection).
  • Boons correctly last for the exact durations listed in their descriptions, though they do wear off instantly on death.
  • Unexplored Second Chances {Worthless} can’t be sold at auction houses.

Trainers:
  • The Visiting Combat Alchemist Trainers at the Keeps in player settlements have once again had their training levels dropped, and these levels will continue to drop in future updates until they’re eventually removed altogether.

FYI, when placing holdings in the newly-claimable hexes around Fort Inevitable, it may take a little more searching than usual to find the right spot. Usually the POI locations for holdings are pretty central, close to a road, and often at intersections. Because these hexes were originally set up with the intention of being NPC hexes, they didn't get set up with one of those locations. We're not really set up currently to do the kind of terrain pass required to add new locations, so we had to temporarily repurpose an existing 30m encounter location in each of those hexes. These particular hexes tended to only have those a bit off to the side or closer to the hex corners. If you already know where the 30m encounter locations are in that hex, just check each one until you find the right one. If not, you should be able to find it reasonably quickly by running a loop around the hex about halfway between the center and the hex boundary and checking for nearby placement locations regularly. If you can't seem to find the right spot, let me know and I'll track it down for you.
