    *** Items ***

    - Corrected an issue where right clicking the Compressed Banquet Complete Set would cause the item to poof with no reward if you didn't have a top-level inventory slot open.

    *** Quests & Events ***

    - You Can't Go Back Home - Fixed an issue that could cause the Restless Ry'Gorr to not appear if there was already one there. This prevented two people from completing the task at the same time and would make it so that the second person to scoop up Orctooth would not be able to continue the task without stealing the Restless Ry'Gorr from the other player(s).
    - Last of the Storm Boars - Fixed issue that caused pets to sometimes prevent task updates.

    *** Spells ***

    - Scribing a new rank of a spell will now try to auto-memorize the spell for you.
    - - Scribing reward set spells will always close your spellbook if updating your memorized spell list.
    - Damaging Aura spells now report last hit damage to players who do not receive kill credit.

    *** NPCs ***

    - Fixed an issue with Margidor spawning too frequently in the Eastern Wastes
    - Corrected an issue where pets and mounts could be left behind when their owner left the zone.

    *** Collections ***

    - Increased the drop rate of collectibles within the instance for "The Head of the Snake".

    *** Progression Servers ***

    - Veteran Reward AA abilities have been updated for progression servers to more closely reflect the timeline of their introduction.
    - - The ability to claim Veteran Rewards on a character has been moved from Gates of Discord to Dragons of Norrath.
    - - Abilities for years 1-7 (Lesson of the Devoted, Infusion of the Faithful, Chaotic Jester, Expedient Recovery, Steadfast Servant, Staunch Recovery, and Intensity of the Resolute) will now be usable starting with the release of Dragons of Norrath.
    - - The 8th year ability, Throne of Heroes, will be usable with the release of Prophecy of Ro.
    - - The 9th year ability, Armor of Experience, will be usable with the release of The Buried Sea.
    - - The 10th year ability, Summon Resupply Agent, will be usable with the release of Secrets of Faydwer.
    - - The 11th year ability, Summon Clockwork Banker, will be usable with the release of Seeds of Destruction.
    - - The 12th year ability, Summon Permutation Peddler, will be usable with the release of Underfoot.
    - - The 13th year ability, Summon Tribute Master, will be usable with the release of House of Thule.
    - - The 14th year ability, Blessing of the Devoted, will be usable with the release of Veil of Alaris.

    *** Miscellaneous ***

    - Special locations that allow the use of Bind Affinity on melee classes will now display a message when entering and exiting their boundaries.
    - Addressed an issue that would cause the client to appear hung when it should have just closed due to graphics issues.
    - Fixed an issue that prevented achievements from logging in tells correctly.

    *** UI ***

    - Corrected an issue where the AA window wouldn't always update if Can Purchase was enabled.
    - Corrected an issue where critical nukes caused by the innate wizard chance were not reported as critical hits.

    - Changed -

    Is this the extent of January's patch? Neither the Tradeskill quest nor Type 3 augments appear to be in here, both of which were theoretically postponed to this patch.

    I know there's been a lot of vacation time since the expansion launch, but this is a... pretty limited patch.

    Agree with Sancus.

    Also, elemental conversion still does not seem to be operating correctly? This was acknowledged as confirmed from a post in November, but I don't see a fix listed here.
  6. Kurage_of_Luclin Augur

    Any fix in the works to add : attack , mana & hit points regen, clarity etc. to augs ?
  7. Kianara Lorekeeper

    I find this update to be ..... lacking.

    Nothing about the altogether missing collection sets and the super rare drop set from aow only?
  9. Yinla Ye Ol' Dragon

    If this is all the fixes for January can we delay the live patch a week to get fixes in for the many things which have been broken since lanuch.

    Named hitting too hard/fast etc. lack of type 3 augs, exp missing from quest, etc.

    This reminds me of the days of mid tier raiding. Running out of current targets, but raiding that 3rd day because... it's the schedule!

    - Fixed an issue with Margidor spawning too frequently in the Eastern Wastes

    That's interesting because this is a named in Great Divide. Glad you guys know where your named are spawning.

    So you are going ahead with yet another negative change for your TLP population?

    If this was such an issue why was this not changed on Fippy or Phinigel? In fact, why was this change not announced at all before launching Mangler, a server that you gave very clear definitions of what would change prior to its launch?

    This is an insult to your TLP players, some of us who have played on these TLP servers for a decade now - since Combine. Some of us have actually managed not to have our accounts suspended, and should be able to use these veteran rewards that we have accumulated just as we were able to previously. If you want to make yet another challenge server, you should reserve this change for a separate rule set that you establish in advance of the server.

    Have to agree these patch notes are pretty disappointing. In the absence of bug fixes, it would be nice to at least get some updates from the devs on a few of the known issues. There are a significant number of broken AAs, itemization oddities or errors (range aug property on striking as an example), pending Type 3s, and then several other topics that might be discussed such as experience model, post 110 focus design where old spells outperform new spells until AAs are purchased, collection sets from instances with flawed drop designs, and probably many more. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one watching for the update today only to be horribly disappointed with no real updates.
  16. Mintalie Augur

    I think you mean 56 :p
  17. Ambiguity-Buru New Member

    Agree 100%. Stop making negative changes like this to your TLP population.
  18. Orbital101 Augur

    Nothing interesting here... See you all next month, maybe.
  19. JeffHanson Augur

    Could we at least get some idea what the reward for the TS quest will be? I don't want to waste a Crystallized Velium Ore on something that I'll be upgrading soon.
  20. Horathmir Elder

    - No changes to the insane number of hit points trash mobs have in ToV
    - No adjustments to how hard trash mobs hit in TOV, The fact that one mob can one shot a tank, not merc tank but a PC tank is BS.
    -No changes to the obscene aggro range of trash mobs in ToV
    - Shameful nerfs of EXP in previously PAID FOR expansions to where blues not give 0.05% exp unless you play in ToV

    So essentially it took 15+ years but you just created another Gates of Discord 1.0 or Underfoot 1.0 for casual players. How do you guys sleep at night?
