Polymorphed druid equipment AC seems to have become natural AC instead of deflection, so enchanted gear isn't going to be helpful AC-wise as the AC bonus isn't going to stack with a druids' barkskin or elephants' hide now.

I only used +1 AC equipment on my lv 19 druid and used brooch of shielding anyway, but it's going to suck for people rocking enchanted leather armor expecting to have +4 deflection AC after a polymorph and just having it overridden by barkskin.

I'd have to check if we have a different setup, but at first glance this seems to be working as intended.

This is nitpicking a bit, but noticed this in the Werewolf Caves:

Just from personal testing on my FS and Sorcerer, the following AOE spells don't yet have an AOE target indicator. If I don't mention a spell it either works or my character does not know it.

Mass aid, mass shield of faith, healing circle II, mass negative energy protection, mass see invisibility.

Is this on the main or test server? If on the main, it's normal, we haven't yet patched nor released the hak update.

There is a considerable amount of strange behaviour on main server with regards to spells that I presume is us needing the hak update.

No need to report those on the main server since that server hasn't been updated. They won't work until the hak update.

What would be good is testing if those work properly on the test server.

The upcoming patch .36 adds an HDR option, which is really cool, but also displays colors that weren't meant to be seen by mortal eyes. Specifically, the mist might need a little nudge.

Have you, in your ingame settings, tried disabling the option 'generate plt with shaders'?

The colours of shiny hair are from a palette, so it seems odd that NWN changed the palette colour reflections but whatever.

For yourself the shiny, reflective colour of hair and the metal is tied to "Environmental mapping on creatures". It doesn't really fix the issue as other people will see your hair if they use that (personally I don't).

If you're able to customize your hair to a similar colour that isn't reflective in the OOC lounge, I'd do that. Not all of them are.

This occurs whatever colour I choose with this head and many others.  Changing it to for example, the same head Emmanuelle uses, does not have this issue.
Obviously, that's not really a fix though.

Oh wow, yeah this head does seem to be reflective regardless of colour. Turning off Environmental mapping still turns off the reflection for the self, but that's not really a solution to the odd change to this head model. The other heads to either side of it don't suffer :/ strange.

201

Also happens on the others with same hair but different face.

As Shadow mentioned, turning environment mapping off does "fix it", but since others may have it enabled, its not quite a fix.

Is everyone else on the latest (35) version seeing it too?

I see this both on mainline latest, and on the preview beta patch.  Disable environment mapping reliably resolves it for me at least.

I actually didn't notice myself until another player jokingly pointed it out to me OOC.

I believe the alterations to movement speed spells overriding one another is making druids stick in detect mode, despite switching on and off etc. Reboot is the only fix.

Might just be me, anyone else experiencing the same?

On the forum entry for Athasian dwarf the adjustments described are these:

Quote
+4 Con, +2Wis, -2 Dex*
Darkvision
Increased Hardiness vs. poisons (an extra +2 saving throw bonus is added)
Hardiness vs. spells
Offensive training vs. goblinoids
Effective character level +1

* At character creation, remember that the game engine automatically applies the default +2 Con, -2 Cha adjustment for standard dwarves. An extra +2 Con, +2 Wis will be applied once the subrace is selected in-game.

However trying on the test server I get the following:



And after subrace is applied:



Which seems to be accurate to Dragon #319 mentioned as source:



So the forum entry probably needs to be changed to that +4 con, +2 wis, -2 cha too.
