Beta Server has just been updated with the first version of patch 188.8.131.52. There are still many things in the work but some features are already ready to be tested, which is why the patch is released.
In addition to the release of this patch on the Beta Server, I have also updated the account database to match main server's. However the characters haven't been transfered so you will still have to grind them. I will try to get NPCs to get to Dual 5 easily some time soon.
Regarding the patch itself, here's the changelist :
- Fixed Stone immunity not working for Stonization.
- Fixed several Client crashes.
- Fixed Enchant Hammer giving null rares.
- Fixed Cancel from concentration of divine grace not protecting against Life Drain anymore.
- Added Legend Hammer. A Hammer that will reroll a legend's effect.
- Changed Enchant Hammer's success rate from 25% to 50%.
