Changes in ES 3.00 R4G

  • If you have any Moprhing Charms, please see here.
  • If you have any BlackMage's Knucklebones, please see here. (Added some info.)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the typos in the strings.
  • Fixed the input materials of Secret Recipe 7.
  • Fixed the bug that Anvil Stones are shown in the color of the next stored item in Multi Stocker.
  • Fixed the bug that some cube recipes accept some unintended inputs.
  • Fixed the description of Runetool about RW Sorrow on weapons (EDef -> EDam).
    (I made many other changes about runewords, so Runetool will be updated in the next version.)
  • Cleaned up the death animation of Knuckleballer.
  • Updated RW Soul Stealer (+500 To Mana -> (6/clvl) +6-600 To Mana) which was announced but not implemented.
  • Prohibited rerolling tokens because rerolled tokens can't be untokenized.
  • Fixed the bug that Iaigiri's damage bonus doesn't work correctly.
  • Removed the walkable areas behind the northeast town wall of Nihlathak's Domain, so that monsters won't teleport there.
  • Removed Pitching Machines in Bill Roper Memorial Ballpark, because they seems bugged and sometimes resurrect for unknown reasons.
  • Fixed the conflict that Black Knight has the same animation code as a background object. This is an old bug of the original ES 3.00, and this may fix some random animation errors.

Recipe Changes

  • Added Multi Stocker shortcut recipes.
    • Unidentified Ancient Scroll + Multi Stocker -> Reduces 1 Decipherer, Identifies Ancient Scroll
    • Multi Stocker + Unique Charm + Key + Any Rejuv Potion -> Adds 1 Maple Leaf
    • Multi Stocker + Perfect Gem + Key -> Reduces 32 Decipherers, Adds 1 Anvil Stone
    • Multi Stocker + 12 Perfect Gems + Ancient Scroll 26 -> Reduces 4 Anvil Stones, Adds 1 Maple Leaf
  • Upper/Ethereal uniques and set items yield more Decipherer points.
    • Multi Stocker + Elite Unique/Set -> Adds 2 Decipherers
    • Multi Stocker + Exceptional Unique/Set -> Adds 1 Decipherer
    • Multi Stocker + Normal Unique/Set -> Adds 1/2 Decipherer
    • If the piece is ethereal, the added decipherers are doubled.
    • The old recipe "2 pieces of Unique/Set + Key -> Decipherer" is abolished.
  • Disabled removing Merc Only Conversion applied on Runeworded items, because it destroys runes and corrupts the base item.
    (Merc Only Conversion recipe doesn't work on Runeworded items in the current patch, because it proved you need to apply Merc Only Conversion before you make the runeword, or the conversion is lost when you unsocket the runes.)
    • This means you can unsocket the rune from Runeworded items you applied Merc Only Conversion in an older version of ES, to reuse the runes and base item, but there is no way to get the Anvil Stone and P-Gem refunded.
  • Added a recipe to remove socket from Unique and Set Jewelry. This is because Unique and Set Jewelry if it has a socket.
    • Unique/Set Jewelry with a socket + Socket Donut + Thawing Potion -> Romoves the socket (Soket Donut is refunded.)
  • Added following recipes. These recipes don't work for Cow King Set.
    • 3 Set Weapons/Armor of the same base item -> Unique item of the same base item
    • 3 Unique Weapons/Armor of the same base item -> Set item of the same base item
  • Added a refund recipe for Mophing Charms which were aboloshed in this version.
    • Morphing/Broken Charm -> Perfect Gem

  • BL: Base frame for Blocking. If none, the unit doesn't show Block Animation.
  • WL, RN: Base frame for Walk and Run.

Unique Item Changes

  • Replaced "+10-13 To Soul Shiver" on BlackMage's Knucklebone (Unique Necromancer's Stone) with "+10-13 To Fire Armor".
    • Oskill Soul Shiver no longer works to avoid a bug of D2.
    • You can reset the oskill bonus of your BlackMage's Knucklebone by cubing twice.
      • The first time all oskills are removed.
      • The second time "+10-13 To Fire Armor" is added.
      • This recipe works only once per item.
      • This recipe also works with a new BlackMage's Knucklebone spawned with oskill Fire Armor. (This behavior isn't intended, but you can exploit it to reroll the level of oskill Fire Armor.)
    • EDIT: You can't update a BlackMage's Knucklebone with a socket, just like you can't reroll a Unique Ring with a sock. You can Remove the socket to update a BlackMage's Knucklebone, but then you need to make the socket again. Sorry for the loss of the materials.
  • Unique Stag Bows, Ashwood Bows and Matriarchal Bows now show the original inventory graphics. This is because the unique Short War Bow graphics (2x3), which Blizzard assigned for the unique Matriarchal Bows, is too small for Stag Bows (2x4).
