Mortal Online 2

Patch Notes

March 13, 2024

What's New?

This patch brings the promised features of Sprint 1 on our latest Roadmap.

It includes a massive update to combat quality of life and fluidity, an overhaul of mount stamina to make traveling the world more seamless, rideable bears, dismemberment and a new dungeon has appeared somewhere in Myrland.

That’s not all however! This is one of our most significant and impactful patches when it comes to gameplay changes.

New Light Armor

  • A new set of craftable light armor is now obtainable.

New Dungeon

  • A brand new dungeon, Melisar’s Vault, has been added to the world.

Combat Mode and Quick Swap

  • A secondary weapon set is added to the character sheet. You can Quick Swap to the second set at any time using the icon or the new keybind in the game settings.
  • You can also quick-equip a weapon from the hotbar or inventory during combat mode.
  • Equipped items in the actionbar are now highlighted. Items equipped in your secondary weapon set have a softer highlight.
  • The slots in the secondary set are considered new equipment slots and are treated the same way as the primary set when updating stats like weight calculations.
  • You can now drag-drop equipment into their dedicated slots to replace them.
  • Changing combat mode is now faster.
  • Changing combat mode or equipment has a 1 second cooldown for changing again.
  • The user can start using weapons 1 second after entering combat mode or switching weapons.
  • Reduced the time it takes to start eating & drinking from combat mode from 2s to 1.5s.

Combat Input Queueing

  • You can now hold down a combat input during an action and the input will register as soon as your current action has ended. This applies to melee, archery and the magic ‘Cast Last Spell’ / ‘Cast Last Spell Self’ keybinds. This allows you to do things such as holding your block keybind while mid swing, to automatically start blocking when your swing has ended, as well as cast a spell and hold down your “Cast Last Spell” keybind to automatically cast the spell repeatedly while holding the key.
  • Added a new toggle setting in the Gameplay settings tab called “Feint and Block”, which when active will allow you to tap your block keybind to feint while you are charging a swing, or block while idle.
  • You can now hold down your attack keybind and tap the Feint key to auto Feint and start a new attack without releasing your attack keybind.
  • Holding the Feint keybind will now prevent a new attack from starting until it is released.
  • You can now charge an attack from the blocking state.
  • Added a setting in the Gameplay panel for enabling Legacy combat for players who do not want to enable the input queue system.

Ranged Combat

  • You can now hold 50 arrows in your quiver, up from 25.
  • Improved responsiveness with bows by fixing a one frame mismatch between the crosshair and the release of the arrow.

Magic Combat

  • You can now change the target mode of a spell mid charge/casting by pressing “Cast Last Spell” for Target cast and “Self Cast” for Self cast.
  • The crosshair will now show if the spell you are casting is targeting yourself or someone else.
  • Arms are now swaying a bit while moving and casting spells, the same animation as with melee weapons. This is only visual and does not affect aiming.

Melee Combat

  • Weapon durability now affects damage if below 20% durability, down from 50%. There’s also a more noticeable change in damage once the threshold is passed.
  • Updated the animations and visual effects for blocks and parries to make them easier to see.
  • Parry effects should no longer end up outside the screen for larger weapons.
  • Shields now gain stamina when successfully parrying. The amount of stamina gained scales with shield weight, where lighter shields gain more stamina than heavy shields.
  • The time a swing is released is now used to define if a hit should get parry attack bonus damage. This should fix the issue of heavier and slower weapons not dealing full damage after a parry.

Mounted Combat

  • You can now mount and dismount while in combat mode.
  • Mounts now all regenerate stamina at the same rate.
  • Mounts now regenerate stamina slowly while in 3rd speed.
  • Mounts now only drain stamina while in 4th speed (boost).
  • Mount armor no longer affects stamina regeneration.
  • Mount swim speed & stamina regeneration is now 1/4 of what it’s on land.
  • Mounts have been rebalanced and have different maximum stamina amounts.
  • Swift riding now reduces stamina degeneration by 5%(which only happens during boost mode).
  • Horse ability ‘Spur On’ now regenerates 100 stamina per second and lasts 2 seconds.
  • Fixed a bug that made melee weapons do way more damage than expected when used on mounts. This was common when jousting with lances.
  • Fixed issue that made lances hit twice from a mount sometimes.

Other Combat Changes

  • Push is now a dedicated button, default keybind B. The old input for push using Block+Attack has been removed.
  • The Push action now costs 10 stamina.
  • Added an extra +10kg of carry weight for everyone.

  • Weapon swings now have a subtle trail effect.
  • Improved the hit effects when hitting a training dummy.
  • Player arms will now avoid intersecting with walls and other characters in first person view.
  • You are now forced out of combat mode if you try to use an unsupported weapon.
  • Fixed a bug where the delay from eating food/drinking potions could be bypassed in combat mode by spamming the consume action.
  • Fixed a bug in mercy mode where the “Hold R to suicide” prompt would flash repeatedly.

Guilds and Territory Control

  • Keep owners now get 80% (up from 50%) of the upkeep from houses in their area added to their treasury every time the house pays upkeep.
  • Players cannot enter supply towers anymore.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause a new guild leader to not be selected when the current one left or disappeared.

  • Fixed issue where mounts would bob up and down quickly in water when near the surface level.
  • Fixed broken swimming animations for Molva beasts.

Frame Generation

  • Added a new window for Frame Generation Settings in the video settings tab with a detailed explanation for each frame generation setting.
  • Frame Generation can now be turned off completely in the engine and is the default setting. This is recommended for users experiencing crashes with frame generation. Frame Generation was previously forced to AMD or NVIDIA. The previous Frame Generation toggle only enabled the generation but did not disable it in the engine.
  • Some users experience GPU crashes with AMD FSR3 Frame Generation. This issue affects multiple games and is not exclusive to Mortal Online 2. Please try the new Frame Generation settings under the AMD method. The crash dumps we receive do not have enough information for us or the team at AMD to isolate the issue. We would be grateful for any feedback by those who are affected in the community.

Game Performance

  • Force engine garbage collection on main map transitions to ensure the UObject count does not explode from logging out and back into the game. Large UObject counts are bad and cause game hitches during garbage collection and can even crash the game if the UObject count gets too large.
  • Some minor adjustments to level streaming performance.
  • Some minor animation optimizations to improve CPU performance.

Server and Networking

  • Optimized server code for auto-stacking items when you pick up a new item.
  • Fixed issue that would create small spikes of delay on certain parts of the server.

Known Issues

  • Some parts of the landscape might turn invisible, but they’re still there. We’re waiting on Unreal Engine 5.4 to fix this.
  • We are aware of the login issue that some players are experiencing and are focusing on getting it fixed in the coming days with a hotfix.
  • 3rd person player gore is currently not showing as intended, meaning you will not see limbs fall of from another player unless you killed him/her. It does however work for AI.
