Shadowbane Development Update
7:51 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

The Shadowbane Development page has been updated to provide more information on the upcoming August content patch. Developed by Ubi Soft, Shadowbane is a popular MMORPG available for the Mac and PC.

Here is a look at what to expect in the new patch:

Chat System Improvements - Various chat system improvements will be implemented to include a new Global and Class-Specific chat channels; note that you must belong to that Class to be able to access the Chat Channel (for example, a Ranger can only view and talk on the Ranger Channel). With this update, modifications have been made to the ignore list so it will now persist as well as a minor update to the death messages so they will be broadcast worldwide (note that this feature is easy to turn on and off).

Loreplay Server - A new server will be brought online that will contain limits on what Races and Classes can join a Guild Charter and only allowing guilds of the same Guild Charter Type to swear fealty to each other (meaning a High Court can only swear fealty to other High Courts). Furthermore, restrictions will be in place only allowing Nation Members to group together and disallowing the casting of peaceful powers on members of different Guild Charter Types (For example, a member of a Noble House can only cast peaceful powers on individuals in their Nation or in another Nation that is based on a Noble House guild charter). This server will not be brought online with the August Content Patch but will begin evaluation in the testing environment in the weeks after the August Patch is placed on the game servers.

Global Group Invitations - A new text command that will allow Group Leaders to invite someone to their group even if they are on the other side of the game world.

Passwall for Thieves - The Passwall Power will be made available to the Thief Class via the Black Mask Discipline.

The Black Market - Denizens of Sea Dog's Rest have banded together and created an underground market. This market will contain various armor and weapons for sale that will contain magical properties that can be crafted without resources. Note that these items will have a specific set of enchantments and there will be a very limited number of items.

Working Inns - Players will be able to pay an innkeeper and log out and back in at that location.

Revamped Default Interface Layout - Made minor adjustments to the default layout for when a new character is started.

Class Balancing - The Crusader and Sentinel Classes will receive some attention during this patch.
