Vanguard Build 2152 Patch Notes September / 10 / 2008


Isle of Dawn
The Isle of Dawn was separated from the continent of Kojan during the cataclysm. A village of battle hardened humans and a band of zealot hobgoblins have warred against each other for centuries on the Isle. Their mutual hatred for one another runs deep and even now they are locked in an ongoing struggle. Recently though, increasing numbers of ulvari have begun to surface on the island – much to the dismay of both the humans and the hobgoblins.
Weakened by their perpetual war, the humans aren't able to capably defend themselves. Even now, their villages burn as they frantically seek aid. The isle is in desperate need of heroes.
- The Isle of Dawn is now available for new characters!
- When creating a new character, you will now be presented with two options for your starting location. The Isle of Dawn will be one option, and the other option will be your selected Race's standard starting area.
- PVP, Exchange Brokers, Death experience and tombstones are turned off on the Isle of Dawn.
Player levels have been capped at 10 on the Isle.

Character Model Revamp
Player character models in Vanguard have undergone a bit of a revamp. Not only have they been optimized for better performance but they have been given a new, updated look. The revamped models are now capable of looking much more heroic and contain a lot more personality. Worry not though, for those players who don’t necessarily want the heroic look, no customization options have gone away. In fact, we are reintroducing lots of facial customization as well.

Class Damage Updates
We have looked at and modified each class’s damage capability, ensuring that each lands in their correct place in the spectrum of classes. We have looked at many things, from raid wide damage capacity to the tank’s ability to control aggo, to the weak DPS of some healers and DPS classes. This was a relatively comprehensive pass to ensure that with GU6 raid targets are still killable. While the effects of these changes will primarily be felt at the highest end of the game, we are making sure that all levels of players are still functional. There has been extensive testing of these changes on the test server for the past several weeks and we’d like to thank all those players who have sent in testing logs – your efforts are greatly appreciated! For a more comprehensive list of class changes and updates, please read the list below.

Bug Fixes
In an effort to make the launch of the Isle of Dawn go as smoothly as possible, the Vanguard development team set aside a good portion of time this update to fix as many existing bugs as possible. We are pleased to announce that well over a thousand fixes are included with this patch. While many of them may not be immediately noticeable, we’ve included a more detailed list of those that are below.

Patch Notes November / 19 / 2008


Harvest day has arrived:
After years of intolerance the Halgrim family has decided to pack their bags
and move to Khal in search of more tolerant atmosphere. They planned on
throwing a feast for the people of Qalia when they arrived but things have
not exactly gone according to their plan. The Halgrim family is now in despe-
rate need of help to insure that their Harvest Day Feast can continue as
planned. Adventurers are asked to head to Khal and look for Brenda Halgrim
to assist her in with saving Harvest Day.

News of the Harvest Day Feast has reached the far corners Telon and not all
who hear about it are pleased. When news of a Feast centered around the
eating a bird Salrash vowed to put an end to the holiday before it has
started. Salrash and his allies are now poised around Khal ready to attack,
without the aid of adventurers the Halgrim family and their Harvest Day Feast
are doomed.

New costumes for players who complete the Harvest Day quests or defeat
the allies of Salrash

Removed the ability to use IO's while feigned.

Added a toggle to disable PC Context menus. Located under interface/general.

Added a toggle for applying combat forms when you die & release. The new
command is /applyformondeath (on|off).

Fixed a bug where NPC hp displayed incorrectly for a second after a spell
modified their hp.

Forcetaunts now count spell hits as a hit.

Fixed the 2h weapon bonus. It has been modified and should now actually be
applied to the damage of a critical hit.

Fix for group heals critting when they shouldn't.

Illusions now persist when a player logs out or chunks

Quests that require you to fight a locked mob will now only update if you participated in the entire fight.

Fengrot’s Bonecrush should no longer be couterable.

All taunt abilities should now do damage.

Drape of the Coalition and Paladin shields should no longer be counterable.

Fixed issue with Karax Woefather’s encounter

All force target abilities now have a max seconds duration. They all retain their
normal number of attacks duration but will only stay on a target up to the
seconds defined on them.

When being resurrected/revived at level 50 you will now receive resurrection
sickness. This sickness will grow if you die while the effect is still on you.

Essence Healers will heal your rez/revive sickness and can be found in the
following chunks:

    Ruins Falls
    Shores of Darkness

Fixed issue with Varking where he would not spawn his adds properly or cast
his spells making the encounter trivial after a certain point.

Halloween events have been turned off.

Quickening Jolt’s added ability will now add the 5 minute immunity instead of
the buff cast.

Fixed an issue with Guar that stopped him from pathing properly.

Halfling racial Shroud of the Vael has been turned off until next update.

The stats on the Harbinger’s Strap have been adjusted to be more inline with
the reward’s tier.


1. Added keybindings for pet commands.

2. Moved cancel summon for the persistent pet command window from the
unintuitive location in the middle to the more logical location on the end.

3. Both charmed and persistent pets now show ability information in a manner
similar to other abilities on the client, however the pet abilities show recovery
time instead of level.

4. Pet abilities no longer flash when clicked.

5. Pet abilities to the right of the first slot now appear on the cursor when
dragged, rather than frozen in the top left corner of the screen.

6. Pet abilities can now be toggled on and off repeatedly without becoming
bugged, also left-clicking on an ability does not make it appear toggled on.

7. Multiple pet abilities can be toggled on at once.

8. Charmed pets now show refresh times. Also, charmed pets have all of their
abilities default to toggled on. Additionally, if an npc is charmed twice in a
row, it will retain the player's toggled on settings for it from the previous charm when it is charmed again.

9. Pet abilities with cast times have a blue bar similar to the reaction bar
appear over them when used that counts down the cast time.

10. Recovery times now work for pets--essentially a global recovery timer for
NPC's. Auto attacks have a recovery time of 0 for pets, meaning they should
have no effect on the pets ability to use other abilities, but all of the pet's
visible abilities use their displayed recovery times.

11. Hotkeyed pet abilities now continute to work after a pet dies/is
unsummoned and is then resummoned. Also, hotkeyed pet abilities will gray
out when the pet is dead/unsummoned.

12. NPC abilities that restore energy or endurance now activate based upon
the proper field rather than basing their use on the target's health as before
(one of the necro minions had this issue).

13. Healing pets will now heal other pets as well. Essentially they have a
hierarchy in determining who gets healed: owner, group's pcs, raid's pcs, owner's pets, group's pets, raid's pets.

14. Changed the percentage at which heals can potentially take place from
60% to 95%.

15. Changed the NPC check for determining allies (for beneficial abilities) from
the NPC's aggro radius to 30 meters. This fixes issues with some pets, such as
Abominations, refusing to auto use beneficial abilities.

16. Fixed an accuracy issue with refresh timers that affected both abilities and
items on the client.

Vanguard Build 2265. 0 Patch Notes December / 16 / 2008

New Race Class combos

Some races have received new class combos.

Halfling Paladin – The humans of Tursh have helped train the Halflings in the ways of the Paladin.
Dwarf Ranger – A human scout contingent was summoned by the king to train their soldiers in the techniques of the Ranger in preparation of an impending threat.
Vulmane Monk – Ancient spirits of the land have shared the knowledge of the use of Jin and the technique of utilizing it with their descendants.

Raki Bard – As the Raki have become more attuned to the world of Telon, they have developed a way of incorporating their musical abilities in combat.
Goblin Dreadknight – Due to the impending war with Gulgrethor and the latest threat of the Ulvari, the Orcs have started to train young goblins in the way of dread.
Goblin Ranger – As Martok seeks to explore or advance their power, the goblins have become the front line for scouting and have increased their knowledge of survival techniques.
Orc Rogue – In exchange for the knowledge the Orcs have shared, the Goblins have trained the Orcs of espionage and assassination.

Dark Elf Ranger – In an attempt to further spread their influence, the Dark Elves have taken on the mantle of learning the ways of desert survival and scouting.
Kurashasa Bloodmage – Further developing the inherent relationship between the symbiote and the host has awakened their innate mastery of symbiotic behavior.
Kurashasa Monk – After mastering the ways of the disciple some Kurashasans have honed their ability to use the ways of Jin in more offensive ways.
Mordebi Necromancer – The Mordebi have unlocked the ancient power of their ancestors through research and experimentation of the undead.

Bridge of Destiny

The Jharru have been trying to keep this place protected in order to prevent people from thwarting thier efforts to summon Garuzamut the world eater. They have recently summoned some elemental constructs to act as wardens for the area. Do you have what it takes to defeat these elementals and find out what is happening on Garuzamut island?

· 6 man content with some 12 man encounters.
· Collect the pieces to build two might weapons as you progress.

Garuzamut Island

The bridge of destiny is just a taste of what awaits. The Jharuu’s most powerful constructs have been seen roaming around this area. They are there to serve as a warning to those who would try to mess with powers they cannot control.

· 24 man raid content.
· Make the final additions to the mighty weapons built on the bridge of destiny.


The waters of Telon are filled with a bounty of wonderful fish just waiting to be caught. Cast your line and see what happens. But be warned there are more then fish that swim in these waters and if you die alone there will be no one to tell your tale.

· Participate in a unique fishing system that is both interactive and casual.

· Purchase bait and fishing poles while tracking what fish you have caught and what they like/dislike.

· Go see Tien Hou in Tanvu, Nafis Karam in Qa Riverbank, or Wilhelm Runge in Three Rivers to learn how to fish up some grub.


Sometimes you like to fly, sometimes you like to rift, and sometimes you just want to get on a gigantic boat, sail out to middle of nowhere and cast a line off the side. Well for those of you who like to do that Galleons are coming.

· Download the schematics for the three galleons.

· Build your mighty ship and sail away on a lovely cruise. (Warning none of these boats comes with an Isaac or Gopher)

· Professor Telpon can help those willing get the schematics for these grand ships.


Is your armor losing its shine? Your sword just not as powerful as you wanted it to be? Fear not adventurer because there are a new set of items that can be augmented and made more powerful by adding enchantments to them.

· Some items from KDQ island, Garuzamut, Bridge of Destiny, APW, and factional armor now have enhancement sockets on them. Crafted items will see a slot pass in the future.

· Enhancements come in various different types and offer many different stat mods.

Arena of Games

Pinklet Lefever in Tehatamani coast is waiting for those who want to enter the arena and compete for great prizes.

A grand coliseum has appeared over Tehatamani coast and only those wanting to prove their worth need apply. The members of Kamelott Inc. and a new group of goblins known as the Finch’s Finks have opened up shop and are offering various prizes for those who compete.

· A FFA PVP arena on all servers.

· Gain infamy, challenge the arena combatant, and gain the keys to the chest all while watching your back and keeping other players from killing you before you can kill it.

· Trade in infamy for chests and unlock them for various prizes including socketed items and enchantments you can only get in the arena.

Gloriann Festival Returns

Towns and cities alike within the world of Telon are heartily preparing for the Festival of Gloriann! Once a year during the wintery months, the tale of Atnas Claws and his spirit of giving imbue the cities with an aura of goodness. Towering trees adorned with lights can be seen glittering within the cities of Telon.

Be on the look out for an abundance of gifts and goodies! Those who have been extra nice may find their treats granting them something extra special!

Take a tour over the rooftops of Telon while riding on Randolph, the flying reindeer.

You too, can help spread the spirit of Gloriann by decorating your own house or Guild Hall with numerous festive items, from neatly wrapped gifts to smiley faced snowman. We're not giving it all away, of course. Sometimes the best gift you can give is one of surprise! So make sure to log in, gather your gifts and continue to spread the spirit of Gloriann throughout Telon!

Festival of Gloriann features:

Special flying “Randolph” reindeer mount
3 new raid encounters for all levels starting at 20
Expendable presents for everyone
Festive decorations
Special illusion costumes

Karax Woefather

Union negotiations with Karax have finally come to a compromise. He will work if we will stop killing him. Hopefully he will hold true to his word but he did have one hand behind his back when we shook hands.

Fix to Some Overland Raid mobs

All overland raid mobs that use flurry and or rage should now be using the proper flurry/rage.





Factional Merchants

The City Creature Handlers decided to do less talking and cut to the chase. They will now have merchant windows that will list the mounts that are available and their city platinum costs.

The city accessory dealers will now sell potions for platinum coins.

Fixed an issue with King Mnal’s stipe not dropping properly

Vanguard Build 2299. 0 Patch Notes February / 4 / 2009

The winter solstice has come and passed. The inhabitants of Telon are welcoming the return of the sun and longer days. In the wake of Gloriann’s Festival, strange things are happening in New Targonor. First came the horrific nightmares. Then children began going missing. Despite the best efforts of the Thestran Watch and the Sages Arcane to find any evidence, little to no light has been shed on either occurrence. Though warmer days are ahead for Telon, how dark will they be?

Those curious about the recent events should seek out Edric Nichols amongst New Targonor’s courtyards and perhaps have a look for themselves.

3 New quests from strange beings belonging to the ‘Winter Court’.

− Help the Winter Court acquire Dreams, Reflections, and Memories from the lands and waters of Telon.
− Rewards include a unique enhancement item, a new fishing pole, and a new pet – Snuggles, the winter wolf.
− Wakliki Nogswort and Finch’s Finks have a limited time offer as well. Those wanting to do battle in the Arena will want to check out his latest deal.
− For long standing veterans, a new /claim item – “The Visionary’s Signet of Promise” – how will you choose to build your future?


− All NPCs on SOD should now give a small faction bonus when killed.
− All SOD non boss NPCs hit points have been reduced significantly.
− A set of global rares have been added to the entire island. These are new legendary items that can drop of any NPC in the area.
− Fixed display on rucksack that said it was a drop from tier 2 bags when it is in fact a recipe drop from tier 4 bags.


− Changed Guar's display model to hopefully resolve some of the lag issues.
− Queen Vixx's hit points have been fixed.
− The waters around the towers of BOD are now shark infested. Beware those who like to skinny dipping.
− The rare elementals in BOD are much more available now and always drop loot. They also have a chance to drop weapon parts.
− Fixed an issue where some mobs were casting Pantheon abilities.
− Guar’s loot table now drops a paladin range slot item.
− IOG Raid encounters can now drop a paladin range slot item.
− The apprentices in BOD have a new stones on them. These stones are used for summoning a new raid boss that will be coming soon and aimed at APW capable guilds. The raid target is NOT live with this patch, but you can start gathering the stones to summon him now.

Appearance Slots

− New appearance slots can now be accessed from the character screen. These slots allow you to display the look of a different item while retaining the mods of your gear.
− All non stat clothing that was on merchants has been converted to adventuring slots for use with appearance slots.
− General goods vendors now sell some basic equipment that has no visual display for that slot. This allows you to turn off the visual of certain slots by placing that item in an appearance slot.

General Appearance Bugs Fixed

− Previewing an item with an attachment when the equipped item for that slot did not have an attachment caused the preview item to remain on the character's appearance. It now correctly disappears.
− Previewing a bow when there is no bow equipped, but an item equipped that covered the players back, previously did not show the bow on the character, it now does.
− Mousing over an item that cannot be equipped will no longer show an item compare with a previously equipped item that is now unequipped. Items that cannot be equipped will now never incorrectly compare with other items.
− Mousing over a two-handed sword will show a comparison against both the primary and secondary weapons, rather than simply the primary one. Also, the first compare window will always be filled before the second ever is. Previously the second window would sometimes pop up without the first (if a one-handed weapon was moused over, and the primary-hand slot was empty, but the secondary-hand slot was full).
− Various bugs fixed that caused items to visually disappear off of your character until you relogged.


− Fixed a bug where the stats from enchantments would not show up on your character sheet after you chunked.
− Fixed a bug where enchantments would disappear off of the items they were attached to.
− Bonus AC enchantments should now display their mods correctly

Abilities / Classes

− Bloodmage blood pact will nolonger work with focus or siphon blood. It does not pact when the damage is done by the player losing life. Any ability cast by a player on themself causing their hp to go down should nolonger work with bloodpact.

− Soaring leap and xennu boots no longer work when in water
− Paladins can now equip short bows
− Fix for ability learning/research. You should be able to learn these abilities now without issue.
− Ability refresh no-longer appears to tick down on the client while you are dead. They were not ticking on the server previously, and this was causing the client/server to be out of sync for those abilities.
− The dot portion of cleave now stacks.
− The damage of cleave has been tuned down.
− Cleave no longer modifies the incoming critical chance for everyone for 3 seconds it now increases the warriors ability to crit for 10 seconds


− All flying mounts should be using a standard cast time of 6 seconds. This does not affect special case mounts like the griffon used in the Sano event
− Fixed an issue with npcs who had a leash range was set greater than 200. This will fix an issue with Summoner Physik.
− HP, Energy, and Endurance now update much more often on the client. Previously the players own HP, Energy, and Endurance would update every 1 second, the player’s group would update every .5 seconds, the player’s pet would update every .2 seconds, and the player’s defensive target every .5 seconds. All of these now update every tick (one tenth of a second).”
− Changed the way NPCs handle their spells being countered. Previously they would re-cast the spell after 6 seconds. Now they will wait for the full refresh of that spell before casting it again.
− Energized Hammer proc is back in and working properly.
− _defensive_target_ no longer shows on the menu obtained by right-clicking on the defensive target .
− Heal Effectiveness is fixed and no-longer doing 100x what it said it was.
− Fix for animation related crashes.
− Fix for large memory leak.
− Various region server crash fixes.
− Fixed the social server crash.
− Fix for players getting infamy/loot from fights like shylosia, physik, etc.
− Fix to defensive target getting bugged out when a player dies. It now is correctly cleared.
− Fix for some DoT tooltips.
− Fix to bards being able to damage people they shouldn’t be able to.
− Fix to display and updating issues with infamy.
− IO Interaction is now canceled when an NPC or Player tries to attack you.

patch 2nd June

Shimmering Shallows and a remote island in the sea of Kojan now have some 2 dot npc population. These npcs can all drop spell components, enhancements, and other rare items.

Many NPCs that were 5 and 6 dots have had their dot values reduced to equal the challenge they represented. The intent of these dot values were for group and unfortunately some NPCs with this label are acting more like 3 and 2 dots. Instead of increasing the difficulty of these mobs we have decided to put them at the dot value they seem to reflect the most. This means areas like Rahz Inkur and Tehatamani are now primarily 4 dots areas.

For those wondering why this was done it is because 5 and 6 dots represent a significant level of power for NPCs, at least it was supposed to. Unfortunately this is not the case for many of our old world mobs. The intent of a 6 dot mob was not that a player can solo 4 of them never losing more then 10% of their health with no external healing especially when the mobs is 2 levels above them. 5/6 dot mobs are meant to be group and they give XP based on the fact that they are supposed to be killed this way. Now obviously we could go back and make these NPCs harder but that would prevent players from being able to complete the content and the rewards from it would not come close to the challenge. So we decided to make the content easier by making their dot value more appropriate for their challenge.

Resolved a rather significant XP exploit. No this is not related to brotherhood farming or mass AEing for those who were wondering.

Fixed a scaling issue with XP post 50, now the xp given form various NPCs that are 50 and below should scale properly based on con color. This means as the challenge gets easier the XP received becomes less. On the flip side killing NPCs that are higher level then you will grant you bonus XP.

Level 51+ can once again gain xp from a larger range of NPCs

You should now be able to group with people who are lower then level 51 without worrying about gaining no experience as long as the mob you are killing is high enough level to give xp to the 51.

Dread Knight scythe of doom now has a max target value of 6

Fixed issue with fists of transcendence not firing

Fixed issue with the boundless fist line not doing proper damage

Fixed issue with enlightenment being cleared when you cast an Aum

Fixed issue with enlightenment not giving its bonuses in combat

Fixed issue with various abilities damage types not being classified correctly.

Ignore pain is now a 2 minute refresh

Divine Typhoon should now receive benefits from errant strikes and fists of celerity

Bard regens should be working again (We are looking into an issue with stacking and instrument mods still)

You should no longer be teleported to NT when you enter the no boat area around KDQ

Cirel's Rhythm of Renewal and Cirel's Anthem of Clarity will now increase both health and mana regen

Increased damage on warbows.

Re-enabled the /togglewindow command

The BOD Staff weapon quest is available for Dreadknights now along with the sword one.

“Simple Pleasures” civic parlay in khal now works properly.

Fixed an issue in Pantheon where you would always be at max run speed. This means you will now need to use your runspeed buffs in there again, and you can be snared by npcs that were trying to snare before.

Sacrificial Beast should have the proper hitpoints now

Right click harvest abilities should work again

Reduced the evasion mod for NPC 54+

Fixed issue on BOD and FPN where the NPC were not getting their proper evasion bonuses.

Pantheon Angels should be using their proper animations now

Haelifur’s trial should reset properly now.

Finch’s trial should work a little better now.
