Expect the "final patch" for Breath Three to be released tonight. This patch will include some important bug-fixes, as well as the release of the first "mega-mob" in NexusClash, Maeval (Details to Follow).

The reason it is the "final patch" for Breath Three is that I am turning all of my coding attention to putting together the code that will be needed to handle Breath Four (which is going to be a "from-the-ground-up rewrite" for a number of reasons).

If a seriously game-breaking bug turns up, I am likely to patch it, but it's more profitable for me to now turn my attention 100% to working on the new re-write since any patches I add now will be obsolete when we move to Breath Four anyway.

I, am very excited for this. Having recently gotten into editing the wiki, I look forward to the next breath. Thanks Bob.

This should be fun.

Although I thought Breath 3 was scheduled to last about 2 years?

Yeah, that was before we found that the whole thing has been completely wonky in some places, plus Bob wants to rewrite the codebase. So thus the game'll no longer work with itself if we changed it slowly.

A new breath with new code to support it is all well and good but... is there going to be any sort of co-ordinated push to bring in numbers? I mean, obviously we (the players) can prod friends etc to play but some centraltly led recruitment drive might be worth consideration. For starters a facebook presence we can all spam on our walls seems like a good move

I would be down with a facebook page to share. I'm already part of the old pirates of r'lyeh fb group.

I wouldn't know the first thing about making one, but if someone else made a NC fb page I would be happy to share it.

I just realized -- with a complete rewrite of the code, there are likely to be some database changes as well. Will we be retaining our "Total" stats, or are they going to be reset? I really, really hope the former...

It's unlikely they'll be erased. I can't say for CERTAIN, but simply retaining a number shouldn't be hard.

People may have noticed their dodge reducing. If not, the blue text was hard to miss. Either way, dodge enchantments have been reduced to 1%. This is in preparation for breath 4, as we need to know if these enchantments are sustainable. If classes are still overpowered despite the change to the enchantment, there's a very real possibility of it being removed completely (and using accuracy enchants on an armour/clothing item will yield a completely different effect). Feel free to add your input on this change (If you believe it renders the enchant worthless, say so politely. Or else you can express relief it was finally patched. It's up to you, but remember that normal flaming rules apply Wink)

I think 2% per enchant and limit it to 5 Enchants is better if we want to get 10% Max dodge on Enchantments.

10 Enchantments to get 10% dodge is too much effort for little buff imho. I can understand how this is easier to implement this breath but should be reconsidered for the next one Smile

Agree with this. I do agree it needed a tweak but it also needs to be worth the effort. As Dis said, not a biggie for the remains of this breath but would be nice to have consideration for the next one.
