Is the sk AA totc still broken? They apparently forgot a 0 on the end for the upgrades for ToV.
Didn't get a chance to test this - will do this evening when i get home or first thing in the AM. I'm hoping it was included in - '- Fixed a bug that caused some lifetap spells to return less HP than was intended.' this fix.

There's some stuff that might suck in here, too...

Code:
- Griklor the Restless (Raid and Mission): Slightly altered the speed of flight and path that Griklor's mount flies to require more effort to bring him to ground.
<-- we'll see how this goes.... but it could piss me off.

Code:
- Corrected items and recipe names with incorrect hyphenation and capitalization of Half-Moon.
<-- gonna break some stuff in @jande 's tradeskill mac

Whats a flippable instance?
An instance which has normal mobs in it. You can enter, xp in it without ever "doing the event", then when you run out of mobs, quit task and then get it again ("flip" it). So you can use it for farming without annoying other players (used to do it for headshot for example).

Don't think its going to be too bad, besides I have 24 hours to play around on test to find the changes. Well hopefully test is up when live migrates.

- The copy layout command now copies chat filter and chat window settings.
- Detrimental spells displayed in the target window will now have a yellow border around their icon if you are the caster of that spell.
/gleeful dance

- Modified the Manage Loot Window to use the value in the quantity box instead of the default slider value.
Not sure what is meant by this.

Holy shit, that yellow border around your detrimental spell is going to be fucking tits.

Now, if only I could filter the target debuff window display to only show my shit :) .... or at least shit that I want to see (goodbye all dots except for mine).

I wouldn't expect it to take too long. Be surprised if it was more than 2 hours - unless they start digging into the 200k random fall damage, in which case it might take longer for them to find and fix that.

What do you know about the random fall damage? I’ve been experiencing this lately and can’t kind anything really talking about it.
