If you read a claim that an MMORPG update has been six months in the making, it’s a pretty safe bet that there are a whole lot of new things arriving. Wurm Online’s patch 188.8.131.52 is precisely that — a whole half year’s worth of updates to various systems in the sandbox.
As one would expect, the patch notes are pretty beefy as they outline the broad lineup of changes. Fishing is now much more interactive with a bunch of new fishing items and water types, a new tower influence chaining system on PvP servers is live that requires towers and kingdom deeds to link back to a valid start point, the Priest class has gotten a major overhaul, and there are a whole slew of tweaks to healing, spells and spell resistance, enchanting and more.
Basically, it’s a lot to take in, so get comfortable as you scour the laundry list.
