Changes in ES 3.00 R4C

  • The new monsters added in this version aren't fully tested and balanced, and can be very dangerous. If you play HC, please hear SC players' impressions before you play.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the animation of the invisible Clay Golems in Catacombs.
  • Added the missing string "Negates Cannot Be Frozen" to Living Ice.
  • Reduced the life of Reporb and Reziarfg again, which still can rollover due to the BO of Cheerleaders.
  • Fixed the bug that the clones of Andariel (in dressing room), Duriel (in marsh), Summoner (Dark Magician) and Hephasto (Dark Clone) are always spawned as a unique of the same name.
  • Removed the temporary change that Skeletons always drop a quiver for testing.
  • Fixed the palette of the Odd Charm, which looks good in Act 1-4, but shows bright dots on the edge in Act 5.
    • Please report if you find an item which doesn't look good in some specific acts.
  • Fixed the monster level of Special Area monsters in Normal difficulty (i.e. all monsters have mlvl 44), except Pain of Marsh, Bookstore Sarina and Harpie's Nest. Those Act 3 areas will be fixed in the next version.
  • Fixed the animation files of Female Vampires and Metal Golem.
  • Fixed the bug that Assassin Claws are shown as "Amazon Only" in the gamble screen.
    (Another bug was also found that "XXXXXX Only" isn't shown for the new class specific items which don't exist in LoD. This is a limitation of LoD and can't be fixed.)

Runetool Updates

  • Added the missing stats of Lawless (Mu Ho U).
  • Updated the old Barbarian Skill tree names in Horizon (Chi He I Se N) and Rage (Fu N Nu).
  • Fixed the bug that Spring (Ha Ru) is hit for Helms, Body Armor and Shields.

Recipe Changes

  • Changed the following recipes because Ancient Coupons have been improved and you can get Unique Jewelry with a socket easily.
    Secret Recipe 45 and 46
     Old Input: Magic Ring with 1 socket, Magic Amulet with 1 socket
     New Input: 2 Magic Jewels, 2 Elixirs, 2 Steaks
    
    Secret Recipe 47 and 48
     Old Input: Unique Ring with 1 socket, Unique Amulet with 1 socket
     New Input: 2 Unique Jewels, 2 Elixirs, 2 Steaks

Map Changes

  • Renamed Nihlathak's Office as Nihlathak's Domain.
  • Modified the map of Nihlathak's Domain again. You'll see something surprising there.

Monster Changes

  • Reduced the life and resists of Master Thief, Creeping Gold and Golden Scarab.
  • Reduced the moving speed of Master Thief.
  • Reduced the number of Baal's Bodydouble by 1.
  • Rebalanced the life and experience of several monsters which hadn't been well balanced. For example, Andariel Clone's life is nearly halved while Duriel Clone's life is increased to make them almost equal.
  • Slightly improved the AI of Summoner and Nihlathak Clones in 3 red portal areas.
  • Allocated 11 random monsters (including 5 new graphic monsters) in Nowhere and Nihlathak's Domain.
  • Allocated 5 Super Uniques (including 4 new graphic monsters) in Nihlathak's Domain.
  • Improved Nihlathak and his minions.

Monster Drop

  • Increased the drop chance of Gold and slightly reduced the drop chance of other items.
  • Slightly reduced the drop chance of Uniques, Sets and Rares from Super Uniques and better because the total drop chance of equipments has been fairly increased in R4A.
  • Improved the drop of Super Uniques in and below Naraku (Treant King, Reporb, Reziarfg and 5 Super Uniques in Nihlathak's Domain).
    • They have slightly less chance for Uniques, Sets and Rares than the Act Bosses, but drop up to 6 items as well as the bosses.
    • If a Super Unique is accompanied with the same kind of monsters as him, the minions drop like the Boss Clones (ex. Duriel Clones in marsh).
  • Nihlathak drops just like Baal.

Set Item Changes

  • Merged the similar partial bonuses of Mercenary Sets to reduce the shown stats.
  • Replaced the melee mods on Act 3 Mercenary Set with caster mods.
    • The weapon has +20% To F/C/L Skill Damage bonus.
    • The helm has +1 To All Skill Levels.
    • The weapon and shield have +1 To All Skill Levels as the 2 item bonus.
    • The 3 item bonus (+1 To All Skill Levels) is removed.
      (+2 total skill levels than the previous version.)
  • New set bonus is also applied to the existing set items. But you need to reroll the set piece to get the new stats of that piece itself.
