Recent Changes for the WoD

This is a listing of the major changes that have been made to WoD. Hopefully I'll keep this up, because I'm bad at that... It doesn't necessarily represent all the changes that have been made. Most bug fixes, for example, won't be listed. There's usually too many of them, and they're not very interesting anyway (important ones will probably be listed, though.) Also, I tend to do a lot of scripting specifically for quests that the seers are running, and I wouldn't want to ruin the surpise by listing them here.

  • Rather major new system implemented - advancement. As this is such a large addition, there are almost certainly going to be a large number of bugs
  • The basics: Combat skills can now advance through usage. This isn't 'normal' advancement, though: this advancement occurs in addition to the normal .spec limits, which means that it can take you above 100 skill (for primaries.)
  • This advancement skill is not lost upon death. Once you gain skill, its yours permanently
  • You can see how much you've advanced in a skill using the new skill window that was implemented a few days ago (its the 'Adv.' column)
  • Advancement is currently limited to 5.0 bonus skill points. In time this will be raised
  • Advancement occurs in 0.1 skill increments. The amount of 'skill experience' needed to advance further doubles every 1.0 skill points (so it takes the same amount of XP to go from 0.1 to 0.2 as it does from 0.0 to 0.1, but it take twice as much XP go go from 1.0 to 1.1 as it does to go from 0.0 to 0.1.)
  • The rate of advancement is very much subject to change depending on how things work out
  • Currently, the only skills that can advance are combat skills (weapon skills, tactics, parry, anatomy) Magery and secondary magery skills will probably be added (semi-)soon.
  • Again, the way to advance a skill is to use it. Fighting with a sword, for instance, will give you skill experience points in swordsmanship


  • The skillwindow has been updated. In addition to listing your current skill level, you can now expand it to display your base skill (what you get through training), item skill bonuses, magic spell bonuses, and bonus skill from *deleted for security reasons*
