Altimira "/sdrops" question.

Post  Fallingferret on Thu Apr 09, 2015 2:14 pm

I've been wondering, since Altimira supports the EP, do the server drops account for the stat changes?

The server drops can only change the probability of specific items dropping and which items drop from which monsters (and boxes). The EP patches the item parameters in your client so that weapons give different stats than they would on an unpatched client. If you were to remove the EP (Sad), then your item stats and requirements would return to their original values.

The main benefit of the server-side drops is that /sdrops allows rares to drop in quests, whereas if you let the client generate the drops, rares will never drop in quests. Thanks to your reminder, I'm going to do a little testing of that right now. Laughing I've been so busy with quest updates and releasing the new DC disc that I haven't finished the /sdrops testing that I wanted to do.

Awesome, thank you. I was under the impression that the server would dictate everything else along with what/where.

No, the server just generates the item. The stats the item has depends upon the client of the person looking at/using the item. Wink
