The Cleft of Dimensions is constantly being updated, poked, prodded, and tweaked. To keep everyone informed of the various changes, the Immortals semi-regularly post Change Notes in-game. This page will copy those notes as well.


Changes 6-1-2013

  • Non-elemental Wizards now conjure acoustic elementals instead of eclipse elementals.
  • Lockers now available for use in Truce and Viorar banks, and for purchase in player housing.
  • Faron Woods is now linked north of Zigolis Swamp!

For Builders:

  • New spells: Doom Reverb, Sonic Boom, Vitriol, Firebreath, Gastro Acid, Influenza, Skylight, Grease( Influenza and Grease are castable but have no effect yet).
  • New affect flag AFF_INFLUENZA replaces AFF_SLEEP -- will cause regen-damaging debuffs but doesn't do that yet.
  • Races list is prettier when remorting.
  • Fixed a few typoes in spell echos.
  • Enchant Weapon no longer strips affects from weapons.
