Jan 8, 2016
July 10, 2018

*** Items ***

- Fixed several bugs with the focus effects from Sebilis Hardcore Heritage breastplates.
- Changed a number of fishing pole items to be unbreakable. Fishing poles that have a chance to break when used now display the Expendable flag when inspected.
- Augments can now be removed with distillers of greater rank than the one specified. For example, an augment requiring a Class V Augmentation Distiller to be removed can also be removed with a Class XI Augmentation Distiller. The system will start with the lowest possible rank distiller and move upwards until it finds an applicable distiller. Augments requiring a unique distiller (like the Small Gem Glue Solvent) will still need that specific distiller or the Perfected Augment Distiller to be removed.
- Horn of Unity - Adjusted spell stacking for Blessing of Unity to reduce the number of other buffs it conflicts with.
- If one of new augment based ornaments made from the old container based ornaments is attunable, it is now also tradable on Free Trade servers.
- Fixed the mixed up descriptive text for the various Rallosian Ornamentations.
- Bottle of Clarity Pack will give out the appropriate level potions from level 30 to 60.
- Removed the no longer required spells from Bottle of Healing Pack, Bottle of Clarity Pack, Bottle of Alacrity Pack, Bottle of Spirits Pack, and Bottle of Replenishment Pack. These items now allow you to preview the potion you will get from them.
- Darkened Coif of Wrath is now a head item.
- Darkened Sleeves of Wrath is now an arms item.
- Removed the endurance cost from Rousing Zeal, Soothing Zeal, Rousing Consumption, and Consuming Zeal, the click effect on some Paladin and Shadowknight Breastplates.
- Hero's Forge ornaments can now be placed in Donal's Vambraces of Mourning.

*** Quests And Events ***

- Fixed an issue that caused some characters not to have credit for tasks that they had previously completed but cannot repeat.
- Under the Robe - Arsin the Blaze should be spawning properly in this errand. Note that he will not spawn 100% of the time.
- The Handmaiden - Render should be spawning properly in this errand. Note that he will not spawn 100% of the time.
- Sathir's Tomb (Raids) - Pets will no longer attempt to open or close the hallway doors in the tomb.
- The Silent Schism - Spells that do not have a mana cost will no longer cause the achievement 'Burn the Heretics' to fail.
- Drusella's Vault - The Whirlwind Slash cast by the animated bladestorms should now sync up better with the warning aura disappearing.
- Melalafen is no longer a required target for the achievement Conquerer of The Western Wastes.
- Made several changes to Frostcrypt Raids:
- - Beltron will no longer leave his room.
- - Harfang will no longer leave his room.

- - Shades of Calm - the meditating shades will engage more often now.

*** Spells ***

- Fixed a bug that caused Sanctuary buffs to drop when consuming some types of potions.
- Items, Familiars, and Glyphs that previously conflicted with the Wild Growth line of spells will no longer have stacking conflicts.
- Druid - Adjusted Pack Regeneration, Pack Chloroplast, Regrowth of the Grove, Oaken Vigor, and Blessing of Oak so that they match other regeneration spells and gain power as the caster gains levels.
- Added a message and chat filter when you or others take damage from auras.

*** AA ***

- Numerous abilities that can only be obtained by completing quests or as achievement rewards will now display in the AA window prior to obtaining rank 1. The descriptions for these abilities have been updated to include information on how to obtain them.
- All - Banestrike has been changed to a passive ability that triggers off of melee attacks, ranged attacks, and direct-spell damage.
- All - Consolidated ranks 1-3 of Hastened Banestrike to be ranks 2-4 of Banestrike.
- Melee Classes - Adjusted the bonuses granted by Innate Darkblade, Duelist, Fellstrike, Fury, Holyblade, Innerflame, Natureblade, Rage, and Songblade. Reduced the bonuses granted by these lines for levels 40-80 and increased the bonuses for levels 85-110.
- Bard - Fixed a bug where A Tune Stuck In Your Head was extending the duration of Vainglorious Shout.
- Berserker - Removed the hit limit from Blood Sustenance.
- Enchanter - Fixed a bug that prevented Rank 8 of Color Shock from functioning.
- Monk - Doubled the duration for all ranks of Swift Tails' Chant.
- Monk - Significantly increased the effectiveness and endurance cost for all ranks of Ton Po's Stance.
- Ranger - Reduced the base damage of all ranks of Headshot and increased the maximum melee damage cap from 750k to 6m. This should result in critical Headshot attacks dealing significantly more damage than before.
- Shadowknight - Removed the hit limits from melee leech effects and removed the 8% chance for Mortal Coil to trigger Mortal Residue.

*** NPCs ***

- Many Chest NPCs that were body type Humanoid, Magical, or Undead are now body type Construct.

- Assistant T'os has returned to dry land.
- Marcia Attamilgad has located a few new items for her stash. We're not asking questions.

- Slayer achievements and the Banestrike AA ability are no longer restricted to Rain of Fear.

*** Miscellaneous ***

- Trial heroic characters can once again be deleted.

- Bard - The /melody command will no longer be interrupted when attempting to sing a targeted song without a target, a song with no cast-time (Alliance of Sticks and Stones), or a song that costs more mana than the bard has available.
- This forage button no longer gets into a "stuck", unusable state when zoning. If it would have been stuck, it may not be in a receptive state, but will follow up with a warning message and re-computation of the timer.
- Improved the classic Giant's ability to hold weapons in its left hand.

*** UI ***

- The group window should no longer show group information to players if the group is disbanded or they are removed and/or leave.
