Patch Notes 22.214.171.124Greetings Mortals!
Prepare for a monumental shift in the world of Mortal Online 2.
With the introduction of territory control you can now claim land for your guild, expand your influence on the realm, construct settlements and grow in power.
You will not be the only one vying for control of Myrland however, so be prepared to engage in large scale siege warfare as the strongest powers collide and compete for dominion over the land.
The two new groups of Emanation and Arrangement bring 20 new Elementalism spells to the world of Nave, allowing magic users to expand their possibilities and effectiveness with totally new mechanics.
All this and so much more is now available in this patch. Please give the notes below a read and let us know what you think!
We have also put together a helpful "Getting started with Territory Control" manual over on our website which we encourage you to view here: https://www.mortalonline2.com/help-center/gameplay-help/getting-started-with-territory-control-and-sieging-manual/
See you in Nave!

Added 20 new elementalism spells, in the groups Emanation & Arrangement.

Added a guild rank 4 requirement for operating keep gate levers.
Added a guild rank 7 requirement for manipulating decorations in guild buildings.

Fixed issue where players could launch arrows through walls by standing too close to it.
Updated the visuals of the ingame map to display territory control information.
You no longer need the map item in the inventory to see the Myrland map when you press M.
You can now zoom the map and move it around.
Loot and Pickables
POI containers such as barrels, chests, urns etc have a bit higher refresh rate for new loot.
Make pickables easier to target and interact with by improving the collision to better match the visual mesh. (pickables are objects like karotons or salt crystals)
The effects of multiple Elementalism Emanation spells no longer stack.
Casting Crawling Hands will now flag you as a criminal.
Lava Flow base damage decreased from 2224 to 2022

Mounts and Pets
Updated the appearance of Campodon bags.
Fixed a bug where your mount would not take fall damage if you died from the fall.
Fixed an issue where a mount that changed between young/adult/alpha while swimming would drop to the floor and stay under water.
Mounts are now forcefully pushed towards the surface while swimming to ensure they stay afloat until we add buoyancy rules. There were a few scenarios where players managed to stay below the surface.
Fixed issue where mounts had a lesser step height than players. This caused mounts to be unable to step over objects that a player on foot would.
Characters, Creatures and Spawners
Rebalanced the Glory reward of many creatures. Hostile animals now award more Glory overall.
Multiple variations on dynamic spawners added or updated across Myrland.
Added an extra leash check to leash AI that is stuck.
Adjusted the spawning radius of several troll spawns in the world.

Fixed the bad falling animation for horses that had a broken loop.
The bandits who captured the Tindremic Officer now give glory, although less than other bandits.
Buildable Placement (put notes here and we’ll clean them)
Adjusted the placement rules for buildings. Buildings should now be a bit easier to place.
Adjust the way the minimum range between player owned structures is handled. In certain cases you should now be able to build houses slightly closer to each other.
The placement mode for structures now attempts to automatically raise the object being placed in order to clear any clutter on the ground (Rocks, tall grass, bushes, etc) when the item is activated.
Player owned structures are now easier to place on rough terrain.
Buildings will now display their correct names when placed, instead of being called “building”.

Removed large no build zones in front of all keeps.
Adjusted several no build zones in the world to be smaller.
Housing and Buildables
Destroyed houses/keeps will now be lootable for only the owner after being destroyed, after 48 hours anyone can loot the content of the house/keep for 72 hours then the structure is removed.
Fixed being able to view the contents of unrelated chests of other houses when you unlock a chest with a password.
Fixed client side bug where the keep gate would be closed for some players even though it was open.
Various collision fixes and updates to houses, keeps, and strongholds.
Fixed a bug causing you to not be able to loot destroyed buildings.

Update house password system, a quick relog will not force you to retype password to access chests/doors etc.
When the client thinks it has access to a chest (by having an outdated password) you will now be able to retype it again instead of simply being denied access until relog.
Chest UI now closes when password failed or someone changed the password.
Fixed a bug causing ‘access chests’ to sometimes appear empty and not able to be picked up.
Fix issue with keep walls allowing AI to walk through them.
Fixed an issue which resulted in you being unable to place decorations on certain grid cells of a house when the door was open.
Increased item cap for Keeps by +100 for T2 and T3.
Players can now force open the door of a house by damaging it.
House doors have health, and a defence value that scales linearly with the health % of the house it is connected to.
This means only houses that are being sieged can have their doors opened in a reasonable amount of time. Players should be able to feel safe in their homes outside of a siege scenario.
The door will recover its health over a short period of time.
At 100% health, the door has a defence of 100%.
Attributes, Skills and Buffs
Fixed a bug sometimes causing you to get more skill points than intended. Players affected by this bug will notice the appropriate amount of skill points being drained from their skills upon login.
Fixed an issue where if you unlocked Veterinary before a change made to Animal Care, it allowed you to bypass the Animal Care requirement. This should no longer be possible.
Fixed bug where players affected by akh bond in mercy mode would not be killed when struck. Making it look like players were resurrected when "killed".
Pet buffs are now removed upon trading the pet.

Fixed a bug where you were not able to weakspot someone who had the counter damage reduction effect.
Fixed a bug for spiritism where you would not lose spirits if ether lore skill level was 80 or above. You now lose spirits until you reach 100 skill.

Fixed several leaks that would cause server lag if the server was not restarted..

Patch Notes 188.8.131.52Greetings Mortals!
This patch brings with it the second batch of Elementalism spells. Many of the new spells allow you to manipulate the weather of the region that you are in, with some spells even requiring specific weather in order to be cast.
The roster of mountable creatures is also expanding. You are now able to ride wolves, direwolves, terrorbirds, and even domestic pigs! In addition to these new mounts, the new mount passenger system allows you to bring a friend with you while riding horses and molvas.
Speaking of Molvas, they can now be equipped with bespoke armor. Making these awe-inspiring beasts even more imposing than before.
Lastly, several new craftable pet bags have been added to the game. Allowing your furry and feathered companions to assist you in new ways.
And as always, there are a slew of changes and fixes to go along with all of the new additions.
See you in Nave!
Mounts and pets
We have added the ability for certain combat pets to be mountable. This includes their risen variants. Risen pets have rules in which you can only have one “mount” type and one “combat” type or they will vanish.To be clear, the current pets look like this;
Molva - Mount and Combat (Can only have them by themselves)
Other Rideable Combat pets - Combat
We will likely revisit these tags in the future and update you if or when they will change.
Four pets can now be used as a mount. Wolves, direwolves, terrorbirds and domestic pigs (this includes the risen variants).
Added craftable bags for several creatures.
Horses and Molva beasts can now hold an extra passenger.
Mounted Combat, Mounted Archery and Mounted Magic are disabled for mounted passengers.
Players can now offer other players to ride on their mount as a passenger if the mount allows it. Look at the other player and hold Ctrl+R to offer a ride. The passenger can then mount and dismount as long as the rider is on the mount. The passenger can be forced off the mount by using Ctrl+R and will no longer be allowed to ride again. A passenger will always dismount when the rider does (no AI riding).
Mounts now have a rider weight limit before penalties kick in, passenger included! E.g. Some horses can handle 180 kg without penalty at level 1. The weight includes the armor and body weight for the rider and passenger but not their inventory weight. The mount armor and bags are not included in this penalty. A penalty of 0.5% per kg will be applied to the speed and 0.2% to the turn rate beyond the weight limit.
Mounts carry an additional 0-40% extra rider weight between creature level 0-125. A creature with a 100 kg rider weight limit will have a 140 kg weight limit at level 125.
Fixed bug where the riding speed penalties from equipment and bag weights would sometimes not update properly.
Reduced the flee duration for mounts when the rider is knocked off from 3 seconds to 1.5 seconds.
Fixed bad volumes for medium-tier houses causing pets to randomly run into other player houses when running past them (or ignore parts of the house completely).
Fixed issue with broken corner pathing near houses. Pets would sometimes walk too close to walls and end up inside the house.
Fixed issue where pets would sometimes get stuck in the entrance until their owner moved far away enough for them to teleport.
Pets will no longer stop following their owner when blocked by a door. It will now keep trying until the door is opened again or the owner goes outside.
Pets should now navigate between sections in L- or T-shaped houses without taking shortcuts on the outside. Proper doorway navigation will come when we add in-house navigation around decorations.
Fixed bug where pets would not update their appearance when changing level. For example a young pet would not change into an adult appearance unless you stabled it or relogged back into the game.
Temporary change: Pets are now allowed to leave a building even when the entrance is closed. This change remains until we confirm that we have fixed the issues with pets randomly going into closed houses.
Fixed bug causing certain pet skills to not be properly checked if they are a criminal action or not.
You can give bags custom names by ctrl + right-clicking them in your inventory.
Outlaw bandit spawners added to the world.
Lootable shallow graves with a chance of rare loot can now be found throughout Myrland.
Lootable sunken boats can be found throughout the Myrland seas.
Pet bag crafting for Molvas, Campodons, Celaenos, Tagmatons and Turtles.
Armor crafting for Molvas.
Added support for gathering resources from the ground.
Grass can now be gathered directly from the ground in thick grass areas to feed your pets. (Other resources like plants and bushes are still more effective and faster to lower pets hunger.)
There is now a Kallard task vendor in Cave Camp.
Quality of life
Reduced the interaction timer with other players (hold R to trade, etc).
Reduced the interaction timer for houses.
Quality of life
Reduced the interaction timer with other players (hold R to trade, etc).

Disabled the auto re-enter combat mode functionality for bandages.
Mindblast now deals more damage against AI and now varies a bit between casts when used against AI.
Aggressive AI will now also attack player pets.
Weather and Heat
Heat System turned back on.
Weather now adds to heat.
Chilled, Frostbitten, Warmed and Ignited debuffs now affect the body heat of Players they are on.
Reduced the camera wobble in mercy mode.
The "Rare rocks/trees" system has been brought back and merged with the current “rare material drop system”.
"Rare rocks/trees" will yield double the drop chance of the rare materials.
The bonus chance of finding rare materials has been reduced from 25% to 10%. Clade gifts 'Stoneseer', 'Geologist', and 'Dendrologist' will now notify the player if there is a high chance for rare materials when mining or lumberjacking. In general this change will increase the speed of gathering rare materials.
Updated the Pets UI.
Khurite 2 handed hilt is now included in the generic 2 hand hilt crafting skill instead of in the Khurite blade skill.
Parts of the package handling on the server has been rewritten to better handle a large player count.
Trolls and other large Ai creatures will no longer trigger hurt sounds multiple times when taking damage from multiple targets.

Fixed issue with not being able to give murdercounts if you moved very far away after being killed.
Fixed issue with criminal timer resetting when you changed nodes.
Fixed issue where pickables would sometimes float above ground after teleporting to a priest.
Fixed crash that would happen when loading empty pickables.

Fixed a flagging bug where if someone was local grey to you and pulled out a pet from a stable, it would not show as local grey.
Fixed a bug causing item slots to turn upside down.
Fixed a glare sometimes occurring in the crafting preview window.
Fixed bug where eating size-shrink food at minimum size sometimes caused you to receive a msg saying you have increased in size.
Fixed a bug where size increase/decreases due to food consumption did not update available attribute points until relog.
Fixed 'size' in paperdoll sometimes showing the wrong number.
Fixed float inaccuracy bug for 'Height' in paperdoll UI.
Fixed water volume in the jungle causing you to be able to breathe underwater.
Fixed a calculation error which caused the skill Herding to not scale as intended. To get the full effects of Herding, you will now need to have 100 in the skill instead of 91.
Fixed bug where the "buy orders" button could sometimes show in the pet broker.
Fixed a hole in Risar dungeon that players could fall through.
Fixed lots of rocks that were not mineable.
Fixed brownwood trees in the jungle that were not gatherable.

Patch Notes 1.0.15Greetings Mortals!
Welcome to an exciting new update for Mortal Online 2!
Get ready to harness the power of the elements like never before with the first stage of the revolutionary new magic school, Elementalism, which adds an exciting new dimension to spellcasting with the addition of projectiles. To help you master the elements, you’ll find groups of elementalists scattered throughout Myrland who will aid you in your journey.
With each consecutive update to the school, you’ll gain access to even more spells to add to your arsenal, making Elementalism an exciting addition to your magical pursuits.
But that’s far from all!
This patch also brings with it an expansion to alchemy, giving you the ability to refine new items, discover new resources, and uncover new effects from ingredients such as the ability to resist magic damage. And with the inclusion of long-awaited quality-of-life changes, such as the ability to slowly walk while casting spells, a new dismounting system, and allowing pets to enter houses, this update is sure to make your time in Mortal Online 2 more enjoyable than ever before.
Join us and explore the new school of Elementalism, further your studies in the art of alchemy, and give your furry companions a well-deserved rest under the safety of your home in this latest update to Mortal Online 2.
See you in Nave,
The Star Vault Team
Added a new school of magic, Elementalism.
Added new Alchemy effects to discover and experiment with.
You can now get knocked down while mounted. You will be stunned for three seconds when knocked off the mount. The mount will flee and ignore commands for the stun duration and then stop.
Added a 10 unit vial to the Vial Vendor.
Added a new Background Volume option to Audio settings. This allows you to set the volume for the application when it is minimized or out of focus.
Added crash recovery for scenarios that cannot be handled by Unreal Engine’s crash reporter. The player will be sent back to the main menu with an error message that is automatically sent to the developers instead of the game silently crashing to the desktop.
Added a new checkbox in settings for Use Character Async Loading that is enabled by default. Enabling this will greatly reduce loading stalls on the CPU as you move around. This will not help with world streaming stutter.
Quality of life
Improved the automatic unstuck feature. The game should no longer default to the upwards direction. Getting stuck in for example a house or boss trap door should now push you in a reasonable direction.
Fall damage removed from sliding. Only free fall should cause fall damage. A free fall will still happen when sliding down a slope that suddenly becomes too steep.
Removed some edge case scenarios that would cause large fall velocity values to happen when running out from ledges. This would cause some stairs to give large fall damage values.
When rightclicking items into the Refining & Extraction UI, they will now fill empty slots first if possible, before replacing a filled, but available slot.
You can now finish a Split stack operation by pressing enter.
Players can now stop and dismount while moving equal to or slower than the first speed (walking).
Players can now stop and dismount at any speed while swimming.

You can now sip potions (consume 1 unit per rightclick/hotkey) or you can hold rightclick/hotkey for 0.5 seconds to quickly consume as much as possible.
Updated the character deletion message to be more clear on what is lost when deleting your character.
Client ping detection will now start once the loading screen closes and the player is ready to play instead of when the player logs in.
Adjusted ping kick to be less sensitive while we gather ping statistics from player connections.
Base stamina regeneration has been increased by 5%. This applies to all clades.
Rebalanced the lower weight classes attribute modifiers, there are now more benefits to weighing less.
Tower shield weights have been increased.
Increased the base swing speed of Poleswords by 15%. (This does not apply to existing Poleswords)
Slightly increased piercing damage on 2H Warhammer.
Increased the material cost for 2H Warhammer, this will also result in higher blunt damage.(This does not apply to existing 2H Warhammers)
The spell ‘Atrophy’ now lasts for 15 seconds, and reduces AI speed by 50%.
The spell ‘Mental healing’ now adds a buff to affected targets (never affects caster), granting increased mana regeneration for 15 seconds.
Rebalanced ‘Blood Kua’ stats.
Increased speeds of most horses to be closer to the desert horse.
Strong and slow horses now turn and accelerate slower than weak and fast horses.
Desert horse stamina drain lowered to ensure they still have something unique to them and are appealing in their own way.
Mount boost speeds were increased, boost stamina drain increased and boost duration set to 5 seconds.
Risen mounts rebalanced to have the same speed & stamina pool, lower stamina drain (and lower health) than their living and more sturdy counterparts.
Human clade gift ‘Southerner’ now reduces fire damage taken by 9%.
Human clade gift ‘Northerner’ now reduces cold damage taken by 9%.
Thursar clade gift ‘Thermoregulation’ now reduces fire & cold damage taken by 6%.
You can now walk while casting magic from any magic school. (You may also sprint while casting Necromancy spells as usual).
Increased 2H Warhammer hitbox in order to reduce handle hits.
