    Important detail about 1.12

    Did you notice that:
    Code:
    Balance Changes:
    
    - Chat Gem functionality increased by 150%.
    I would say it's the single most important change since 1.08 :shocked:

    When you are in a chat channel there is a gem in the middle of the screen. Normally when you click it nothing happens but every once and a while you'll get a message like "Gem activated". It does nothing except keep bored people amused while they wait for RDs to end.

    Someone has never been able to access the Secret Duck Level it seems.

    Arreat Summit says that Blessed Hammer ignores resistances of Undead and Demons, which probably makes sense since it's "blessed", but where's the reasoning that Concentration increases the damage?

    Concentration does not increase the damage of other magical attacks like Bone Spear, does it?

    You're concentrating on making the hammers stronger?

    No. That wasn't what I said.

    I said that the concentration aura increases the hammer's damage only! Hammers are magical, why does concentration increase magical damage from Hammers, and not magical damage from other sources, why the discrimination?

    I believe there's more than just a no-cd patch.

    But not anything that affects normal gameplay, as that would be documented. The only changes they could have made would affect hacks, cheats and bots. Which of course they can't mention as that would make it easier for those with less than ideal morals to bypass the system and start the hacks anew.

    that's also something they would probably have mentioned.

    hopefully RTB or Adeyke or some respected MPQ digger can unearth something more.

    I just did den and its counted from 5 ,are you sure your not just looking for changes that you find them.I would take this with a pinch of salt till something more solid turns up but its unusual for patch notes to not include every change no matter how small.

    I've had the den counting 666 :badteeth:

    IIRC the conc/hammer thing has been changed quite a few times through the years. Wouldn't be surprised if they changed something again.
