Changes in ES 3.00 R5G

Bug Fixes

  • Removed the walkable flag from the tiles in Nihlathak's Domain (at Malah's shop), which would prohibit Nihlathak from escaping into the unreachable area.
  • Fixed the typo in the skill descriptions of Dodge, Avoid and Evade (animatin -> animation).
  • (jp) Unified the translation of the word "Enigmatic" in "Enigmatic Cinnabar" and "Chipped Enigmatic Cinnabar".
  • Fixed the bug that no socketable can be inserted into the socket of LoD unique elite gloves, belts and boots.
  • Fixed the bug that the lightning damage of Death Sentry doesn't increase by slvl.
  • Fixed the bug that the corpse explosion radius of Death Sentry doesn't increase by slvl.
  • Removed the unnecessary magenta dots in the gem can graphics in Act 5.
  • Removed the wrong RIP bonus from Motoko Set's full set bonus, which had been changed to the regular mod of the amulet.
  • Fixed the errors in the skill description of Fade (12% seconds -> 12 seconds).
  • Fixed the bug that Sightless Archer (Unique Faceguard), Zan-Esus' Commitment (Unique Coronet) and Lunar Charm (Unique Tiara) can't be rerolled.

Skill Changes

  • Made Flame Wave and Cold Wave assignable to the left mouse button.
  • Improved the physical damage of Lightning Inferno.
    • Old: Physical Damage = Lightning Damage before applying Lightning Mastery * (100 + Wind Mastery) / 100
    • New: Physical Damage = Lightning Damage before applying Lightning Mastery * (100 + Wind Mastery + Lightning Mastery) / 100
      (Here "Mastery" includes "+XX% to XXX Skill Damage".)
  • Improved the physical damage of Arctic Blast.
    • Old: Physical Damage = Cold Damage before applying Cold Mastery * (100 + Wind Mastery) / 100
    • New: Physical Damage = Cold Damage before applying Cold Mastery * (100 + Wind Mastery + Cold Mastery) / 100
      (Here "Mastery" includes "+XX% to XXX Skill Damage".)
  • Increased the missile ranges of Nerco Vampires (20 -> 26.66 yards).
  • Slightly reduced the additional exlosion radius of Corpse Explosion and Death Sentry per level (+0.44 -> +0.33 yard per slvl).
  • Increased the aura damage of Protection From Evil. This is because PfE pulses only once in 3 seconds while Holy Auras pulses every second.
slvl12-89-1617-2223-2829+
Aura Magic Damage (Old)2-6+1.5+3+6+12+12
Aura Magic Damage (New)3-10+2.5+5+10+20+20
  • Improved Enchant so that the enchanted units show an overlay animation.

(You can always know whether minions, mercs and the characters with fixed-color weapons - ex. bows - are enchanted or not.)

Monster Changes

  • Toned down the spell levels of Putrid Defilers.
    • Psychic Slash: slvl 3-5 -> 1-2 (in normal)
    • Thunder Storm / Meteor Shower / Winter Fury: slvl 8-10 -> 4-6 (in normal)
      (The slvls of monsters are automatically increased by 3 in NM and by 7 in Hell.)

Recipe Changes

  • Changed the output ilvl of Secret Recipe 28 (Rerolling a rare charm with gems) from "previous ilvl" to "clvl", like other reroll recipes.
  • Rerolling Orb no longer stores Crafted Rings/Amulets as a Magic Jewel Point. This is because a Magic Jewel Point is worth only 1.5 Flawless Gem and you can make 2 Flawless Gems from a Crafted Ring/Amulet.
  • Now Gem Can stores a Crafted Ring/Amulet as 54 Gem Points (= 2 Flawless Gems) of the selected color.

Reported Bugs / Requests

  • Rune Forgings (forged in the latest version) on gloves can't be removed correctly.
  • The numbers of Skeletons and Vampires that are supposed to be capped at 24 are wrongly capped at 22(?)(not confirmed)
  • (jp) WSK 1 shows the entry message of Nowhere.(due to not running old_file_cleaner)
  • (Sep 22) Secret Recipe 28 (rare charm gem reroll) would it make sense to change 'previous ilvl' ->'char lvl' as with all other gem rerolls?(done)
  • (Sep 23) Small display bug in Fade, some of the synergies are shown as 12% seconds.(done)
  • (Sep 25) HF/HS pulses every 25 frames (once per second) but PfE only pulses every 75 frames (3 seconds). I realize that the slow puls rate is needed to keep the AoE Knockback from becoming overpowered, but this also means that it does only 1/3 the damage of the other auras. If the AoE damage is supposed to be similar, then the raw damage numbers of PfE have to be 3 times higher than for HF/HS.(done)
  • (Sep 28) While doing an overhaul of the 'Miscellaneous' recipe page on the wiki I noticed these recipes don't look very balanced:(done)
    • Magic Jewel + Blemished Gem = Magic Jewel of the Same Type (ilvl = char lvl)
    • 3 Crafted Rings/Amulets = 1 Rerolled Magic Jewel.
    • A junk Crafted item can be turned into 2 Flawless Gems.
  • (Sep 28) The passive pierce bonus on Sacred Piercer doesn't work (R5E Mac). I made a new a Damage Augmenter, but that didn't help.
  • (Sep 28) Gem reroll doesn't work on circlets. I tried to reroll Sightless Archer (Faceguard) with 2 pgems, and boobers confirmed he couldn't reroll Lunar Charm (Tiara) with 3 pgems.(done)
  • (Oct 02) A map bug in Act 5 lava dungeons: http://phrozenkeep.planetdiablo.gamespy.com/forum/album_page.php?pic_id=2581
  • (Oct 05) Spiked armor and robes don't change your character's color ingame.
  • (Oct 05) The barb helmets I mentioned, I've seen them look bright green or bright red etc in Vanilla LoD, but never in Eastern Sun they all look gold.
  • (Oct 18) Multi Stocker (set to an Organ) + Heart/Scroll + ID Scroll: Convert Hearts/Souls point in stocker into organ points of the selected organ.
  • (Oct 19) "Tyranium Ore + key + armor = Same item +16 life" The recipe works only once on the item.
  • (Oct 26) This is not an ES bug but a LoD bug, but could you change the "10% chance to cast Frozen Orb" on the Change Runeword (Henka wo Suru) to something else?
  • (Nov 05) I just Ra forged a Rare jewel to add 2/3 Weapon Mods of the Rune, so yes I used the TP for the recipes, for some reason it remix the jewel into a Magic jewel and totally different.
  • (Nov 07) I am having problems with the Rhino runeword in a 3-socket Defender [Exceptional Buckler].
  • (Nov 07) A small request for a recipe change: On all other items a Tyrannium Ore dstones +4% Max Life, on Rings/Ammys it gives +2% Life Leech and you have to use a TO with a Key to get the +Max Life.

Can't Be Fixed Or Changed

  • Portal Shrines sometimes don't work. -> Nothing has been changed about shrines, and I can't confirm the bug (a Portal Shrine worked for me in R5F.)
  • (Sep 23) Is there a particular reason Enchant uses the weak color transform? It looks a bit dinky, the strong red color would look much nicer. -> I wrongly remembered that I had changed the color, but it was wrong and enchanted weapons turn vivid red in the current version, if the base item accepts color transform. Also, Enchant shows an overlay in the next version for easy discrimination.
  • (Sep 23) Merc-only forging doesn't seem to get the purple "forged-equipment" description. -> Merc-only conversion isn't a forging, and it can't show any description because of a technical reason.

To Do

Move a few more Waypoints into fixed locations. This is mostly to help players in no-rerunning tourneys. The most important one would be to move the Black Marsh WP to the entrance (like Cold Plains). The same for Stony Field would also be good. That would cut the very long stretch of Act 1 into manageable portions.
Offhand I can't think of any other Act that needs this as bad, most others are already divided nicely. Maybe move the WP in the Far Oasis close to the exit (to Lost Farm).

The new colored indication for Forging is great, this could be extended a bit. I would also like to have the affixes resorted a bit so the most important ones are at the top. Suggestion:
Move the "Carry One" check line to the next spot (after Forging) and make it red.
Next should be oskills, +to All Skills, +to Class Skills, +to Skilltab and +to Individual Skill(in that order).

Edit:
I don't know if that is possible, but putting the Ancient's Way WP close to the Nakaru entrance or the Nakaru WP in a fixed location would be good.

I remember reading that Mac user can't pick up a second unique charm (of the same type) because one can only pick up the second by puttingthe first in the shared stash. Would it be possible to make a tokenizing recipe that turned unique charms into a token (non-functional as a charm) and removed the carry 1 check?

    1. The damage augmentor charm does not have any effect with Dragon Talon in the LCS window. I don't know if it doesn't work, or if it's just not displayed. I hope it works, because Dragon Talon could sure use the help.
    2. Elemental damage from equipment is not displayed with Dragon Talon in the LCS window. It does work with the skill though.

    Death sentry seems bugged, i have illustrated in the skill description 1-28k lightning damage and it doesnt do significant damage that justifys its description at all and i use lightning mastery + conviction + lvl 5 ancients call, this tested on players 1 act 5.
    I think you're right that something is wrong with it. I tried it out, comparing it to Lightning Sentry. The skill descriptions were ~1-8800 for Death Sentry and ~1-13k for Lightning Sentry. Stacked Death Sentries barely scratched some skeleton archers, I mean whole volleys were taking out only slivers of life. I then used Lightning Sentries on the same pack of skeleton archers and they took down the boss himself in maybe 2 volleys. This was /players 1 Hell Dark Wood.
