Patch 3.29
Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 08:13
Fixed some bugs with repair and tweaked the repair formulas, it should now work properly
Fixed some bugs with materials (specifically wood) caused by patch 3.28
When crafting, you now have a chance to create an exceptional item, which is identical to the item you were crafting but with an extra +0.10 bonus to quality. Not every crafting recipe can produce exceptional items. The chance of making an exceptional item is influenced by the quality of your crafting tool.
Crafting tools no longer directly affect the quality of the items you produce.
The quality of your tool now affects the time it takes to harvest resources. For example, if you have a quality 2.0 pickaxe, mining is twice as fast as with a quality 1.0 pickaxe.
Tweaked the formulas for damage to armor, weapons and tools.
Fixed a bug that was causing some icons to appear as completely blue for older graphics cards.
Added a new line to settings.ini, AlwaysOnTop=1/0. Setting this to 1 will make Dawntide always be on top in windowed mode.
Fixed a bug with quality formulas for items.

Patch 3.28 and Scheduled Wipe
Monday, December 13, 2010 - 05:39
A complete wipe of the Open Beta servers will be done on Monday Dec 20th. For the duration of the week following the wipe, skill gain rate will be increased to let testers build up new characters.
Weapons, tools, armor and clothing will now degrade in condition from use. As an item's condition gets lower, its quality will drop.
You can now repair damaged items using the repair tab under crafting, at the cost of some materials (ingots for metal items, leather for leather armor, etc). The higher your relevant skill and the closer the materials used in repair to the ones used in making the item, the more likely the repair is to succeed. A failed repair will still restore an item's condition, but will lower its quality permanently.
Fixed some bugs with shadows.
Fixed some bugs in perks.
Added a new title screen.
Fixed an exit crash.
Fixed a teleport crash.
Fixed a bug with resource respawn.
