I want to take a moment and give a big thank you to our DM team. Our Gildorym DMs ran over 24 events, all of them doing an amazing job. Because of the spike in events, I gave the community a free pass and not worry about player event or exp caps.
New addition to the Spell list of Gildorym - Elemental Spells. Admin Mercury has created a list of 16 new home-brew spells for our druids , sorcerers, and wizards to use. This will bring a little more variety to their game play by giving them a different elemental variant of current spells we already have.
Mittens, Koji, Mercury and I have started to plug away at the banned spell list of Gildorym. There have already been a very changes made regarding the spells, as a few of them have been moved to event only. Our goal is to eliminate banned spells entirely. This is an ongoing project and should be completed shortly.
New Item: Reinforced Gloves - "Gauntlets"
Players are now able to wear and use Reinforced Gloves and 'Guantlets" in events with the possibility of dealing lethal damage provided they are enchanted. They are usable by all classes and do not effect Monk abilities. Please see our Weapons and Armor Thread for more information regarding enchanting the items. And also see our event crafting thread on how to make them. The term Gauntlet is subject to change in the future, as it is being used as a blanket term to note a special piece of craftable and wearable accessory.
