7/6/2022: Mining achievements, bugfixes, more! - Ene - 07-06-2022

Hey Etherealians,

Not quite a big update this time - but definitely a needed one as we've gotten reports of a lot of larger bugs recently, so I've tackled quite a few of them and hopefully can finish the rest of them soon with more content updates, as I don't like pushing out an update without adding something new to the table.

Mining achievements are here as the first wave of our skilling achievements - we'll do a lot more than one at a time in the future, just needed to push this out to test them out. Skilling achievements will be able to be access by clicking the skill tab, and then choosing to View Achievements.

You'll see that there's two new perks that comes with these achievements!

Golden Touch - Grants a 5% chance per level to automatically smelt the mined ore into a bar. Each level is obtained by completing certain achievements in the mining category.

Ecosystem savior - Grants a 10% chance to not use coal while smelting bars (upon writing this I realized I forgot to implement the actual part for this...haha...will come w/ a hotfix or next update.)

Next is a big nerf that a lot of players may not like but is a needed one - Double drop rate will now be capped at a hard 25%. To remedy this a little bit for people that are way over 25%, I've added an additional stat called RDT (DDR Overcap). This leftover chance gives you a percent to hit a brand new, rare drop table - which contains items that may help prolong trips, add future supplies, and give you a small chance at receiving a Ring of wealth (i).

I've also added another donator benefit to help add on to this because of the reduced value of DDR; cannons will have a small chance at firing a "charged shot" that will deal extra damage - the rates will be posted in the donator benefits post in the Knowledge Base.

Finally, I've also posted a poll above to the many complaints I've gotten about the scarcity of limestone bricks, gold leaves, and marble bricks - so please voice your opinions above!
