These Patch Notes were announced on 5 October 2015.

The following fixes and tweaks have now been implemented. If you believe a change has not been documented, either in the patch notes or the news posts for this week’s update, please detail the change so that it may be added.

As always, be sure to submit a bug report should you encounter a gameplay bug or graphical glitch in-game.

Weapons & Armour:

Crystal Armour

The following set effects have been added to the crystal armour gained on Tarddiad. The effects below become available once you are wearing at least the required number of armour pieces.

Note that the harmonious effect will only be given if you have 5 attuned pieces equipped. Attuned and normal armour pieces cannot be mixed to gain the set effects.

  • (2) Increases the damage dealt to crystal shapeshifters and increases the chance of attuned crystal weaponry using their special passive.
  • (3) Chance to cause Tarddian Fury, which deals damage around you depending on your weapon and Agility level. This can only happen every 3 seconds and the chance of it happening is increased per piece you are wearing (maximum 7.5% chance).
  • (4) Tarddian Fury now also removes stun and bleed effects.
  • (5) [Attuned only] On being hit, or during the use of the Seren skilling prayers, there is a chance to obtain Harmonious Resonance". This effect lasts for a few seconds and whilst active causes Seren prayers not to drain prayer energy, aurora spells (other than sapphire) to proc twice and increases the duration of crystallise by 15 seconds.

Wearing the armour will also increase the amount of crystals and crystal fragments gained from Tarddiad, and will greatly increase the chance of finding something belonging to Angof.
