When is a crate not a crate? When it is a sconce, apparently! Who knew that a crate could have no actual storage space and give off light, eh? Item "Draconic Runed Crate" has been renamed to "Draconic Runed Sconce". Kael Drakkel: Beck Quantem, Time Traveling Home Goods vendor, was a tad overenthusiastic with the items that he was selling, and included items that were already available via live events or other means on the Kael Drakkel server and some items that were bugged or otherwise never intended to be released. These items have been trimmed from his very large list, leaving him with a still Very Large List of items. In addition, he has unearthed the Far Seas Fountain and is now offering it to players on Kael Drakkel for a very reasonable rate.

The quest "Inheriting Family" now specifies that the icy fennel is located near the Icegill Lake mount station. (Yes, it is a lagoon, not a lake, but the cold seems to have frozen the minds of the mount maintainers.) Kael Drakkel: The recipe for Enhanced Crushbone Furious Earring now asks for the proper primary ingredient. ZONES AND POPULATION Corrected a bug that would cause wards to apply for no value when the Chaotic Leech values are higher than the caster's ward values. The number of characters in Chaotic Leech has increased because it now has commas! Merchant's Den zones will now drop new mercenaries for the new season, Visions of Vetrovia buff. Castle Vacrul: Haunting Presence [Raid] Vampiric Bite has been slightly reduced in damage growth over time. Vampiric Puncture has been adjust so the ticks of damage do not happen as frequently. Mayong Mistmoore has returned to the castle ready for any challengers that wish to face him. The statues in the Lenya Thex encounter should now have mouseover text before the encounter is active. Corrected an issue in the Lenya Thex encounter that prevented the damage immunity given by the volume adds from being removed properly. Corrected an issue that would occasionally block line of sight when engaged with Zarrakon. Corrected a text issue for the messaging when Poppet the Thrasher is defeated. Forlorn Gist: Akashic Incursion [Raid] Corrected an issue in the Cloaked Necromancer encounter that caused the curse "Distracting Admission" to always fail. Corrected an issue with the item "The Mother's Will" preventing it from successfully moving the intended player out of harm's way. Abandoned Familiars should now use the correct difficulty version of the "Rising Dread" buff. Corrected an issue where Auntie Grimm would react to her ally not being active by saying the "Illusionary Remnants" had not been defeated instead of the proper messaging. Corrected an issue that prevented the Akashic gardens from spawning in a persisted zone. Grandmother Deliria's maximum health has been reduced. Mahngavi Wastes The bounty boss, Sendara Quel, should now spawn properly. Mahngavi Wastes: Warpwood Cairn [Heroic I] Collectible spawn points are now all above ground.

Gelda Glintswift's bubbles should be less likely spawn on top of each other. The Merchant's Den [Heroic I and II] Liegess Lavalle's bloodthirsty colony should spawn a little less frequently. The Merchant's Den [Heroic II] Minimum duration has been reduced to 3 days. Chaotic Leech and Combat Mitigation have been reduced for both normal and challenge bosses, and base population. Max Health has been increased for both normal and challenge bosses. Arachlord Dyrraga should no longer apply Tangled Webs on multiple group members at a time. Breakable wall is more breakably breakable. The distressed and gratified merchants have been moved a bit closer to the zone exit. Elder Furdock's [Challenge] secret stash combination should be readily readable, when appropriate.
