Hordequester's Server Blog
Cleaned up all the scripts, npcs, spawns, immunities, scriptnames, spells, and stats for Stonecore, Grim Batol, and Bastion of Twilight. Added in all spawn points and scripts for BoT on both servers. Rebuilding core as we speak.

I also included a tweak to base stats on the mobs for those dungeons (and raid) and the restricted list for customs. Rebuilt the custom proc restriction system from the ground up to be easily updated/reloaded and shared between DA/KA.

These updates should be good to go on the next (un)planned restart. Unless it decides to restart before 11pm EST..which is about when the Linux server will finish building.

Nearing completion 
Looks like everything important is finished..just need to add the scripts to all the spells and npcs. That will have to wait until tomorrow. I was going to add texts but this guy is a spammer. Going to hold off on texts until I can find the sound IDs. Building the core now so I can get it ready. I did not move over the pvp spell restrictions to the live core yet...I have a few more changes I need to add to it first.

Cho'gall Breakdown (Note to self) 
-- Bastion of Twilight: --
-Conversion: Cannot get aura to stick and allow attacks. Will most likely have to write up a trigger stalker.
-Fury of Cho'gall: Working to spec
-Corrupting Adherent: Summoning done, Festering blood done, abilities done, and now just need to write despawn checks at phase end. Oh and corpse trigger for Spilled blood aoes.
-Corrupted Blood Mechanic: Accelerated, Sickness, Malformed, and Absolute done. Accelerated ping aura done. Fester spray and Sickness spray both done (adds corruption). Corruption counting and triggers done. Need to add corruption triggers to other mob scripts (Old blood, Adherents, etc)
-Flame & Shadow Orders: Summoning done, scripts need work. Spells scripted. Portals not visible..cannot find aura. Despawn and buff spells proc on Cho'gall if move to within range (25yrds per dbc).
Phase 2:
-Darkened Creations: Summoning done...need to write corruption proc.
-Corruption of the Old God: Aura proc not working..needs to be re-scripted to bypass invalid dbc data.

And some more 
-- Bastion of Twilight: --
*Ascendant Council
-Arion: Finished all visual aspect and (de)buffs..fixed timers and cleaned up. Fixed all the spells and spell scripts.
-Terrastra: Gravity Well is now finished as are both the primary attacks and the secondary debuffs (arion and terr). Cleaned up and fixed all the spells and scripts.
-Elementium Monstrosity: Fully scripted including all four major abilities and all visual aspects. Cleaned up spawn timers and switching. Can't find the correct visual for the transformation unfortunately.
*Cho'gall - Mostly completed..having some issues with the vomit visuals and getting the debuffs to stick. Not sure if I'm going to be able to get conversion to work correctly..but I will figure something out.

Bastion of Twilight is taking a bit longer than I'd have preferred...but, it is coming together nicely so far.

More BoT 
-- Bastion of Twilight: --
*Ascendant Council - Almost completely done. Ran into a small issue with the Gravity portion on the other two and the switching to Monstrosity but think I figured it out.

-- Other: --
Added restriction to the Whammy (hex) portion of the Dominator in PvP BGs/Arenas/Guru

Note: Again..these changes will not be live until the raid is finished. Starting work on the last couple bosses now.

-- Bastion of Twilight: --
*Valiona - Fully scripted and added some speech text. Not quite sure if I got the flame casting down 100% visually.
*Theralion - Fabulous Flames is completely broken at a DBC level. I'm not quite sure how they even got this to work on Retail..wouldn't know where to begin...I swapped it out for the Twilight Realm 'Dazzling Destruction' but removed the Twilight Realm shift portion. The rest should be scripted to spec. Still need to add core support for Engulfing Magic but almost done with that part.
*The Council - Planning to design this to be the heroic version where all four of them fight at once then switch
-Feludius & Ignacious: Mostly done. Working some quirks out of the buffs for fire/ice.
-Arion & Terrastra: Mostly done. Almost finished with the script to swap to Monstrosity
-Elementium Monstrosity - Having trouble finding proper data on abilities and timers. Collecting information currently.

Note: These changes will not be in until the entire Raid is finished.

Bastion of Twilight (and some fixes for Grim Batol) 
-- Bastion of Twilight: --
*Halfus - Mostly scripted..still missing a couple gossip updates for the friendlies
*Valiona & Theralion - Finished their phase switching and the visual aspect of flight/ground changing.

-- Grim Batol: --
*Erudax - Enabled script, cleaned up some spell problems, and removed pre-spawned adds. Script was not turned on at all due to a small bug..but fixed now. Should be working to spec now.

-- Other: --
Added fixes for various core components and spell scripts. Just everything I've had laying around since the move.

Continuing work on BoT the rest of the day. Might not post again until I finish the raid entirely.

Real life stuff 
Got the server moved to the new room..which is the old, old room with a new floor (finally). Got the new KVM switches and network set up and the new wall mount. Seems to be running well.

Still need to get the room cleaned up the rest of the way so I can start working again.

Few minor updates 
-- Doomlord Kazzak: --
*Fixed crash bug in his script that caused the most recent KA crash.

-- Combat Ratings: --
*Added hard caps to percentage-based combat ratings dealing with taking damage (Resilience, Dodge, Block, Parry). These hard caps are way above the mark for diminishing returns and will only affect lower levels with broken scaling. It's not generally possible to hit those caps without something being broken or incorrect due to diminishing returns and limited slots.
*Added fix for level 1 CR scaling..should improve the ridiculous numbers a bit when combined with the fix above.

-- Bug Tracker: --
*Added in-game spell tip text parser and linked to wowhead.

-- Armory: --
*Started work on the quest and item display sections. Linked the tooltips in the character section directly into the item view section and started work on layout. Fixed some bugs with displaying and a few minor tweaks to increase efficiency.

Build is compiled, db changes are in place, new vmaps are loaded, scripts are compiled, and npc flags are updated. Should be ready to go for the next restart.

I also cleaned up the unstuck tools on the account page. Matched the layout of other char lists on the website and fixed the link-backs to send to the proper page. Added some tooltips to each of the functions with general descriptions.
