    - Changed the Consigned Silken Bridle horses to the correct Silk speed.
    - Increased the drop rate of several pieces of gear that drop from rare monsters in the Plane of Disease.
    - Reduced the effect of Crippling Guard and Tendon Slicer.
    - Added a chance for Weeping Heaven augments to drop from standard mobs in some Burning Lands zones.
    - Removed Overdrive Boon from Dynamometric Timing Chain and Fractured Gear Set and added Overdrive Punch and Boon of the Seeress as separate spells.

    - Improved the click area for the Hovering Ball Familiar.

    *** Quests And Events ***

    - Unfettered Emerald Excellence - Fixed a bug that was causing raid challenge achievements to always be granted.
    - Raid events from Veil of Alaris and later will now grant more progression keys after they have been open for 3, 6, and 9 months on all servers.
    - - Previously this would begin after 6 months. On progression servers these events will grant more progression keys as soon as the expansion unlocks, and add additional bonuses after each of the next two expansions unlock or at 3 month intervals, whichever is faster.
    - Dragon in the Works - Slowed the rate that the dilapidated mechanics spawn. Reduced the amount that they heal the dragon. Also lowered the hit points of the mechanics a bit.
    - Mechagnomic Whirlrender (Raid and Group) - Made a number of bug fixes, messaging improvements, and mechanic changes to this event.
    - - Fixed a bug that prevented simultaneously fired ballistae bolts from causing the boss to spend more time grounded.
    - - Fixed a bug that caused the boss to spam a message while he was grounded.
    - - Fixed bugs that caused some NPC models to look wrong.
    - - Fixed bugs that caused Whirlrender Mortar and Seeker Rocket to not work properly.
    - - Fixed a bug that caused the boss to cast Static Blast instead of Slashing Claws and vice versa.
    - - Changed the Claw Attack mechanic. The boss will now warn periodically that he is using a left or right claw attack, 10 seconds before hitting everyone on his left or right, respectively. The player tanking the boss should be immune to this attack.
    - - Changed the Static Blast mechanic. The ability will now land on a random character on the boss's hatelist, and will only choose the player tanking the boss if there are no other players on the boss's hate list. The player struck with the Static Blast spell will have a decal indicating the spread radius of Static Blast. Reduced the spread radius. Note that the duration of the decal is not associated with the duration of the debuff and the decal will not spread with the debuff.
    - - Improved messaging for the event. All important event messages should use the Event Messages filter. Added many messages, such as indicating how many ballista bolts struck the boss. Changed the rocket attack message to indicate to the entire zone who is being targeted. Fixed some typos. Any message sent to a pop up should also be sent to chat.
    - - Mechagnomic Whirlrender (Raid) - Increased NPC spell resistances, NPC melee damage output, and spell damage.
    - Raid chests in House of Thule will now drop more key items.
    - End of Empire (mission) - Fixed a bug that could prevent the soulfeasters from activating properly.
    - Greatest Gnome Hunters - The correct amount of parts will now always drop.
    - Spear of Fate - Lowered the Truespirit faction threshold required to speak to Spirit Sentinel after handing in the Sparkling Gem.

    *** Spells ***

    - Corrected an issue where spell guard effects were being applied to direct damage spells twice.
    - Fixed the spell description text for the Hovering Ball Familiar.

    *** AA ***

    - Lord Yelinak should spawn properly in the open world and Agent of Change instances.
    - Restricted the spawns of a few Kunark era dark elves in Kithicor to the unlock of Ruins of Kunark.
    - The Emissaries that give out Sun Shard quests should be available and give out their quests as soon as Ayonae Ro has been defeated, and remain until the Two Gods raid has been completed.

    *** Miscellaneous ***

    - Track now indicates whether your target is above or below you.
