Tin Tankard will sponsor the event, 100k to whomever kills Kallista and throws her into Blackrock Prison.

Must be a prisoner to collect, no fake kills.

Oh... yea.. 18 hours and the fact that it says 06:00 GMT+1 in the post. Didn't notice that untill you asked now. I'd say it's a morrning session for us GMTers. A shame I have to get to work.

Hey All,

I wasn't sure where to post this, and Staff please move it elsewhere if you feel it would better fit some other place.

This project was basically to update and add to this list of spell changes, as I have noticed in my time here that not all spell changes are included in that list, and that it can be difficult to find unless you know your way around the forums.

To that end, I have created a Google Doc which should be viewable by anyone who clicks this link, which can also be downloaded for your perusal offline should you so wish. In it, I went back to August 2010 and noted any spell changes that were not included in MetalTree's post in red, while anything from that post is in normal black text. I have also updated it with the recent spell changes to Melph's acid arrow, Greater Sanctuary, etc.

This list also includes the information about the elemental rings.

NOTE: I have included the date for anything that I found that was not listed in MetalTree's post so that you may go back and see for yourself what change was made and why. This was all taken from the various 'module update running" threads. It is entirely possible that changes have been made since then that were listed elsewhere that I am not aware of, and if you notice anything amiss, please tell me so that I can update this. Staff, if you would like edit access to this document please let me know and I'm happy to share that so it can be updated by in the future by people other than me =p.

Also, any changes made before August 2010 are not reflected here. If there are spells modified before that time, please let me know.

I hope this will help all the casters out there, and honestly I found some spells that I didn't know had changed (looking at you Ennervation/Energy drain) that I'm kind of excited to try out now! Hopefully this can inspire others as well.

This is awesome! Great job! I'd be happy to add this to the sticky. It will be incredibly useful for writing spell descriptions in-game when that time comes.

A couple of tweaks you might add:

  • 1/2 of Shifter level is added to druid caster level.
  • Harper Scout level is added to both arcane and divine caster levels.
  • Melf's Acid Arrow - the patch note here had an error in it that I never fixed. The actual change is "Reduces AC by 1% per caster level.", rather than a flat 20%.

Great work Cuch!

"Imagine a ruin so strange it must never have happened. First, picture the forest. I want you to be its conscience, the eyes in the trees. The trees are columns of thick, brindled bark like muscular animals overgrown beyond all reason. Every space is filled with life: delicate, poisonous frogs, war-painted like skeletons, clutched in copulation, secreting their precious eggs onto dripping leaves. Vines strangling their own kin, in the everlasting wrestle for sunlight... A glide of snake belly on branch. A single-file army of ants biting a mammoth tree into uniform grains and hauling it down to the dark for their ravenous queen. And, in reply, a choir of seedlings, arching their necks out of rotted tree stumps, sucking life out of death. This forest eats itself and lives forever."

I knew Shifter worked something like that, had forgotten about HS. Added!
