August 17, 2016 _____________________ *** Highlights *** - Corrected several issues with the pet window. Existing pet command hotkeys will need to be recreated.

Note that it intended that you are still only able to equip one instrument at a time. - Keliss Arden, the Hero's Forge Merchant in the Plane of Knowledge, now sells his Hero's Forge ornament offerings as full suits instead of individual pieces. *** Quests & Events *** - Grannus (Raid) - Grannus will stop sharing his pain with players once his hit points are below 5%. This should prevent uncontrollable failures of the Non-Transferable achievement. - Emollious (Raid) - Fixed an issue with All Must Fall in the Emollious event that caused it to be very hard to get. - Essence Lens (Group) - The quest rewards can now be cycled from the convert button on the item itself instead of handing it to the quest NPC. - The Hedge Event (Raid) - The Plane of Nightmare hedge maze escort has been improved. - - Thelin Poxbourne is now player friendly. He can be buffed and healed and is safe from accidental (or purposeful) attacks that would disrupt the escort. - - Saying "ready" to the character outside the maze with an ungrouped character will now teleport that single character into the maze instead of having no effect yet consuming a group count. - - All dialogue triggers are now [bracketed]. - Nitram's Collection (Raid) - The Plane of Innovation gnome escort has been improved. - - Nitram Anizok is now player friendly. He can be buffed and healed and is safe from accidental (or purposeful) attacks that would disrupt the escort. - - All dialogue triggers are now [bracketed]. - Corrected a potential bug where a player could fail to get their Quarm rewards if they were dead when earning the achievement. If this has happened to you, please contact Customer Service and they can grant you the item to flag your account for the prize. - Items that are delivered as part of classic quests that were not flagged as 'Quest' items have had their quest flag corrected. - Raid events from Planes of Power, Gates of Discord, and Omens of War will have their anti-exploit mechanic disabled once the server has unlocked Prophecy of Ro. With modern offensive and defensive capabilities, these often throw a false positive. *** Spells *** - Enchanter - Corrected a stacking issue that prevented more than one Enchanter from using the Baffling Constriction line of damage-over-time spells on a single target. - Beastlord - Made some adjustments to low-level healing spells: - - Light Healing is now available at level 18 rather than 20. - - Healing is now available at level 28 rather than 36. - - Greater Healing is now available at level 38 rather than 57. - - Spirit Salve is now usable by Beastlords at level 48 and is available where Greater Healing is available. - - Chloroplast is now available at level 59 rather than 62. - Cleric - Removed the requirement for targets of Healing Light to be in your group and in line of sight. - Druid - Removed the requirement for targets of Nature's Renewal and Forest's Renewal to be in your group and in line of sight. - Shaman - Removed the requirement for targets of Spirit Salve and Kragg's Salve to be in your group and in line of sight. - Bard - The Lively Crescendo line of songs will no longer be focused for duration. This corrects an issue where they were taking longer than intended to trigger Crescendo Effect on the bard's group. *** NPCs *** - Re-Labeled many merchants in Freeport so that their wares can be found more easily. - The "In Irons" banish spell used by the Praesertums in Sanctus Seru will now teleport the affected character to the jail in the same zone, not the base version of the zone.
