Almost any guild in Dark Swords will now grant visitors an ability to completely reset their characters (race, starting stats, avatar and non-religious guilds). A new RESET button has been added to the guild window which allows to use this feature. It is FREE the first time one uses it but the price will indeed gradually increase in accordance to the number of times one orders a reset (with a max price of 50 pt). The prices for character reset are as follows:
  1. FREE;
  2. 50,000 gold coins;
  3. 1,000,000 gold coins;
  4. 2,500,000 gold coins;
  5. 10 units of platinum;
  6. 50 units of platinum.
This update also features the following changes to game logic:
  1. Mirror Shield will no longer reflect magic damage;
  2. Fixed an issue with arenas;
  3. The amount of health of Towers in capital cities has been reduced;
  4. It should now be possible to craft Low, Medium and High staves:
    • To make a Low staff you need to combine in a Lab: a Fire rune of appropriate level and a staff. The level in question is determined by your character level;
    • To make a Medium staff you need to combine in a Lab: a Cold rune of appropriate level and a Low staff. The level in question is determined by your character level;
    • To make a High staff you need to combine in Lab: a Lightning rune of appropriate level and a Medium staff. The level in question is determined by your character level
  5. It should also now be possible to make Fire, Cold and Lightning imbued equipment:
    • To make a Fire imbued item you need to combine a Fire Rune of appropriate level and a piece of equipment. The level for items in this operation is determined by your character level;
    • To make a Cold imbued item you need to combine a Cold Rune of appropriate level and a piece of equipment. The level for items in this operation is determined by your character level;

CHANGES IN CLAN SYSTEM
- Captured lands will give clan experience every day, which is determined by maximum level of monsters in these lands.

- New term introduced – Authority. Authority is used to determine the alliance's place in Alliance rating. Authority is calculated by adding authority of the clans in it. Authority of the clan increases when clan receives battle experience, and reduces when it is lost. Authority of the clan will also be halved if the clan declines a war, or surrenders.

- To declare war, the Authority of the clan must be at least 500; the authority of the clan cannot be negative; the authority of the clan will regenerate every day to 500.

- Clan experience can be received for the following: winning in a clan war, mentor activities, and owning lands. Clan experience is lost if the member of a clan is killed by a member of another clan, who is at war with the first clan.

Several bugs reported in clan system were fixed.
