  • For other user visible updates and changes to Crossfire, visit the Crossfire Traffic page on the Wiki
  • Updates for the Crossfire Wiki are also shown on the Recent Changes page


  • Remove missile weapon skill from monk starting items
    • Monks are not allowed to wield weapons, so it is silly to start them out with a missile weapons skill
  • Prevent gods from appearing in readables
  • Fix number of feet
    • Most monsters with 'body_foot 1' do not have the correct number of feet, which prevents them from wearing shoes. In most cases, give them two feet
    • For some monsters (e.g. djinn), reduce number of feet to zero
  • Add Go board and pieces
  • Patch #460 Scorn Mansion Pet Necromancer - Create archetype for custom undead pet of Necromancer
  • Patch #459 Grace ring amulet patch - Adjust grace bonuses
    • Change the grace from 2 to 3 for “ring of the Saint”, since its item_power is very high (25) and is comparable to the item_power of the “rings of Miracles” (item_power 30) and “Death Priest” (item_power 20), which also have grace 3
    • Add grace 3 to the amulet of Holiness, but also makes item_power appropriate for the change
  • Patch #461 Remove fixed pre-enchant and add random magic 4 treasure
