    Hey everyone!​

    Today I have a very interesting changelog for you.
    This update changes several game mechanics that may very well affect you!​

    • Round item identifications properly so that the game is easier to balance.
    Item identifications now round the way they were supposed to- and logically should round.
    This also affects existing identified weapons and equipment.

    Items on Wynncraft have a base level for each identification.
    When you identify your item, the server randomly assigns a percentage to each ID.
    These percentages are then multiplied by the base level and are then rounded.
    Before this update the percentages would always round up.
    An item with an 1.01 defence bonus would thus give you 2 defence bonus.
    The server now rounds these values in a logical way, making any value less than half round down and any value of half or more round up.
    This may cause your items to give a slightly smaller boost.
    This affected all items in the game.

    This update is needed for the GMs to be able to create new items without being surprised by an always higher than expected set of item identifications.
    • Made loot bonus give a diminishing effect on loot chests - it's no longer overpowered.
    The first 20% loot bonus give 20% bonus as it always did.
    The second 20% loot bonus, however, gives only 15% actual loot bonus.
    The third 20% adds only 10% loot bonus, the fourth only 5%.
    This makes the first 80% loot bonus give only 50% actual loot bonus.
    After that every 5% loot bonus give 1% extra actual loot.
    • Changed guild level hollow star to larger star.
    • Changed the guild rank stars back to individual stars in guild chat.
    • Some initial work was done on fixing guild wars (they're not fixed yet, but they're getting there).
    • Poison no longer gives knockback.
    • Warriors no longer carry spades, they carry spears.
    • Updated the message that pops up when you do not have enough skill points to use an item.
    • Armor and accessories no longer drop on the ground if the skill point requirements are not met.
    • The compass' skill point GUI no longer resets your cursor's position when adding skill points.
    • The reward GUI now tells you the correct amount of emeralds you've received.
    • Horses move a little bit smoother now.
    • Fixed lag
    (caused by loot chests, equipment and mob spawning)

    I hope you will enjoy these changes.
    Have fun playing!

    Rather than making LB have dimishing returns, can you make it a flat reduction? (Ex 40% less) This system discourages high LB sets, so rather than making higher LB useless why not make lower LB less OP while making higher LB still useful but not busted.

    First page!

    As a whole, these bug fixes and feature adjustments are surprising -- weʻve gotten four or so in the last two weeks -- and very much appreciated by myself and the majority of this community.

    Despite the fact my melee build is now no longer possible (wait actually that saves me money cause now I donʻt need to run Corrupted Lost Sanctuary EVER AGAIN YAY), I feel that the ID change is the first step to fixing the current state of meta items / builds. Melee has been...semi-balanced, whatʻs next...rainbow items? That would be amazing. Innovation in builds! Itʻs a miracle.

    This whole thing where items donʻt pop off if you donʻt have the right SP was an incredibly simple yet amazing addition. I forget who suggested it (I think it originated in GS but I could be wrong), but whoever did, thank you. The benefit of this should be obvious: now tweaking items -- nerfs, buffs, Selvutʻs hobby -- will not have the unintended side effects of causing players to lose items!

    As for loot bonus, I was never actually able to try out this overpowered version, but from what I understand, this current system is fine. It might actually balance out Discoverer prices, since now an incredibly high loot bonus isnʻt as valuable as it was.

    Iʻm looking forward to further progress on fixing bugs, gameplay tweaks, and hopefully more guild fixes.

    Thanks, developers,
    DrakeM1
