    - Crystallized Luck is available on the NPCs that sell nobles.
    - The Torn Efreeti Boots and Tattered White Satin Gloves line will change worn looks to plate and chain as they turn more class specific. They both start with the leather/cloth look.

    *** Quests And Events ***

    - - Ex: Scribing 'Dissident Companion' could fail to grant 'Dissident Companion 1-5'.
    - Whispering Midnight Warding Fire, Whispering Midnight Warding Magic, Blazing Euphoria Warding Fire, and Blazing Euphoria Warding Magic show which damage type they protect in their spell description.

    - Entering a load balanced zone from character select will now send you to the least populated instance of the zone.
    - Added scheduled updated events to the calendar for the first half of 2019.

    *** UI ***

    - Fixed an issue where you could not open the last two bags if you had 40 slot bags in every slot and had each of them open.
    - The Faction Window now allows you to sort entries by Reaction or Standing in addition to Faction Name.
    - Spell and combat ability resist messages will now include the name of the target (if you are the caster) or the name of the caster (if you are the target.) Additionally, the name of the spell will now function as a link to the spell description.
    - - Ex: 'You resist the Skunk Spray spell!' is now 'You resist a large skunk's Skunk Spray!'
    - - Ex: 'Your target resisted the Fireball spell.' is now 'A large skunk resisted your Fireball!'

    - Made the following adjustments to the Alternate Currency tab of the Inventory Window:
    - - Moved the 'maximum items in a stack' label and the 'Show currencies that you don't have' button down so that it doesn't overlap the currency list.
    - - Changed the Reclaim button to automatically reclaim the currency type on your cursor rather than requiring you to first select an entry in the currency list to reclaim to.
    - - Added a 'Reclaim All' button that reclaims all currency items in your inventory.
    - - Adjusting the column widths of the currency list will now save per character.
    - The speed of your target's name flash is no longer dependent on FPS settings. Added a slider in options to adjust the flash speed.

    No adjustment to the outrageous damage from all mobs in TBL zones, then? Casual players should just take their toys and go back to farming Bi'faak for the third year in a row?
    Spellfire and millaa like this.

    "Prince Ralaifin (Mission) - Increased the power of enemies in this mission."

    This was already one of the harder missions in TBL with level 117 boss mobs and constantly spawning trash spiders, and you're increasing their power even more? For T1 loot no less??

    Totally not worth doing this mission again.

  5. Cadira Augur

    - Added a hidecorpse alwaysnpc command, which hides current and future NPC corpses, but leaves player corpses intact

    I ...I can't even...I don't....OMG thank you so much! Clerics rejoice!

  6. Yinla Augur

    No fix for the Fight Fire achievments? These were reported on day 1 of release.

    No fix for the loot lockouts on all chars on an account?
  7. Akirrah Journeyman

    No fix for druid remote nukes and the heal portion not landing on pets?

    It's been months now getting rather frustrating.
  8. Forcallen Augur

    Lol at no Scent of Terris fixes or compromises.
  9. Cstoner187 Elder

    Will the 4 chase items in TBL still share xp? Feelsbadman....

    No mention of the 1 ground spawn not in game (Flowing Blue Ribbon) - Palace Aides in Esianti?

  10. Cadira Augur

    I DO think they overdid it on the HP of the mobs, but in all honesty, they were hitting like chumps. I don't know exact numbers but I could probably heal a lvl 107, eok group geared auto grant aa'd Paladin in my sleep through it's entirety.

    If I'm reading the note about them making the ae's explode from the player instead of the boss right, it sounds like mana should not be a problem on the last guy anymore if players are paying attention so that makes it a bit easier.

    Nothing about type 19 augs dropping more frequently ;(
    Nothing about a fix on broken achievements ;(
    Nothing about a fix on the missing collection ;(
    Nothing about Evo items gaining the same amount of XP ;(
    <- Sad panda
  12. Jhenna_BB Augur

    They don't include a lot things in test patches that have been fixed prior. With the laundry list of TBL fixes in need of happening, good chance this is one of those types of patches. *crosses fingers*
  13. mmats Augur

    Please change Bite of Tashani back to instant cast, or revert it completely.

    Can this be reconsidered? Having a hate generating item is useful. Ideally adjusting already-existing hate-reducing abilities (monk: Silent Strikes) to be more useful against hate-generating items would be ideal. Then we have the option.
    Axel, Ssdar and Monkman like this.
  15. p2aa Augur

    Tanks thank you for this.
  16. Monkman Augur

    Have to agree with Thrillhouse, bp was great for saving a group when the tank went down and someone needed to step up and hold aggro while the priest could get a battle res in.

    This is awesome! Love it!
  18. doah Augur

    Search box for the Achievement window would be super nice.

    Heh. All the reports I got (and a gut a bunch, not JUST one report) is that the Prince Ralaifin (Mission) is trivially easy.
    This type of feedback is what I based my changes on.
    I'm not sure about lack of notes (we sometimes make so many changes that we miss when a note isn;t there) but these should both be changed.
    In the end, there is always going to be differences of opinion on these type of changes.
    We are going with the general... the point of these items/effects is DPS not aggro production.
  20. Ngreth Thergn Developer

    my ticket was missing the "Jan 2019 patch" label. My fault:
    "Increased the drop rate of Fate's Accumulator and Blazing Euphoria augments."
