    Test is being updated today with our current* Live build.
    There are no new patch notes at this time.
    Everything should match Live.


    *This update includes some additional code upgrades but should otherwise be identical to live.

    Major changes to the live version of Klandicar raid (or fixes?) - Egg Tenders now work (including auras). Giants/Coldain now run 3x faster. Would have been nice to be in the patch message.

    Would still be nice if Klandicar's trigger points for spells/melee effects had more of a cause/effect. Most raiding guilds are hitting trigger points for Klandicar's Sortilige Strike/Klandicar's Corporeal Concussion in under a second from the time the first warning emote fires. In fact there often zero time between 1st and last trigger in logs, meaning the trigger thresholds are impossible to sort from the events that trigger it. (Would be nice if when I landed an ability/spell that affects it, there was an immediate notice in log; instead they're all bundled together so you can't tell what actually triggered it)

    A) I'm reasonably convinced that "Spells" isnt the right word here. (Maybe I'm missing something)
    B) Hard to tell what abilities this is triggering off of. I'm assuming it spells/abilities from Melee/Hybrids that deal physical damage (focused blizzard of arrows, etc) -- We can remove whatever but the lag in output from Attack->Klandicar Emote makes it nearly impossible to whittle down.
    c) if Sortilege Strike at least called out who it was targeting when it landed (fail message) that would be sufficient.
