GENERAL

If you check your mail, you will now get a letter with goodies to help with beta testing, if you don't have a character copied. You'll get some basic testing equipment, as well as beta buffing baubles for yourself and all of your friends.

Fixed a bug where some potions would not work with click to cure.

Flying mounts can now be hidden unless flying.

By popular demand, there is now a distance meter on the default UI and a value that can be added into custom UI's on /GameData.Target.Distance (also for ImpliedTarget).

SOE Live: By popular demand, you can now hide flying mounts, unless you are flying.

 

 

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION

You can no longer use the clear timer on a 30 minute temporary timer to clear your last zone cleared timer.  You will no longer be able to enter an instance created before the last instance you have completed.

Harrow's End, Temple of the Faceless, and Throne of Fear should no longer put players into their own instances on a group zone in.

 

Temple of the Faceless

The door behind Phobis should now open when Phobis is defeated.

 

Throne of Fear

Named ring events should no longer reset in Throne of Fear

 

Wurmbone Crag

Mystic

Ancestral Support has had its reused fixed to be 180 seconds.

 

Assassin

Bloodflurry is now more specific about how the extra attacks work.

Crippling Carnage's effects have been reduced by 33%.

Double Coating has been moved to where Vicious Nightblade was. Rank 1 and 2 give +1 to the max increments each and rank 3 gives +1 increments gained per use.

Nightblade's Intensity has replaced Double Coating as the endline. Whenever the assassin uses stealth combat arts, they will gain increments of Nightblade's Intensity. When they reach 12 increments, Nightblade's Intensity will be removed and the assassin will gain Concealer's Pain for 10 seconds. Concealer's Pain increases the assassin's potency by 25% of their base potency. Example: An assassin with 300 potency and Concealer's Pain will have their potency increased to 375.

 

Ranger

Blazing Shot no longer has a positional requirement and instead follows minimum range restrictions.

Wrapped in Flames is now 4% per rank but applies increments to each member of the group instead of just the ranger. Each member will maintain their own version.

Rapid Salvo is now a 1 second cast time.

Extra Pitch has been moved to where Superheated Shot was. Rank 1 and 2 give +1 to the max increments each and rank 3 gives +1 increments gained per use.

Burning Intensity has replaced Extra Pitch as the endline. Whenever the ranger uses multi-hit combat arts or those modified by Dexterous Attacks, they will gain increments of Burning Intensity. When they reach 12 increments, Burning Intensity will be removed and the ranger will gain Flaming Assault for 20 seconds. Flaming Assault increases the ranger's potency by 12.5% of their base potency. Example: A ranger with 300 potency and Flaming Assault will have their potency increased to 337.5.

Perfect Salvo is now Arrow Salvo and reduces the base casting speed of Stream of Arrows to 1 second and the base reuse speed to 60 seconds.

 

Swashbuckler

Dashing Flourish now has a 1 second cast time.

Dazzle now is 1 additional maximum increment per rank, and the final rank gives 1 additional increment per cast.

Brigand

Highwayman's Advance has had its debuff components reduced by 10.

Blinding Dust is now a point blank area effect ability that hits up to 6 targets.

Dark Frenzy is now "Cover of Darkness." It now applies AE Immunity to group members if they're within 10 meters of the brigand for 3 seconds per rank.

 

Beastlord

Elnakii's Fury now has the effects of Truespirit's Ferocity. Rank 1 and 2 give +1 to the max increments each and rank 3 gives +1 increments gained per use.

Truespirit's Ferocity has been changed. Whenever the beastlord uses primal combat arts, they will gain increments of Ferocity. When they reach 6 increments, Ferocity will be removed and the beastlord will gain Feral Pain for 10 seconds. Feral Pain increases the beastlord's potency by 25% of their base potency. Example: A beastlord with 300 potency and Feral Pain will have their potency increased to 375.

Ralissk's Perception now has a small heal and power heal (25% of what was previously added by Truespirit's Understanding.)

Truespirit's Understanding now reduces the reuse of Savage Blaze to 180 seconds when the beastlord is in Spiritual Stance.

QUESTS

Riishu should properly have icons over his head for the quest Dearly Departed.

When doing the quest Residual Memory, all Horde on the shores should count toward quest completion.

Page 7 should properly update the quest Holdout now.

One set of devourers and lost wayward needed for the quest Dearly Departed was in a rock. They are no longer defying physics.

The Fire-etched slates for the quest Vanishing Act should properly update the quest now.

Alzilius should no longer skip the quest Lost Keys.

Lasarah and Qalin should be dressed a bit more appropriately now.

Beastlords now have house items for their epic and mythical weapons. If you have completed “A Chance For Redemption” or “ The Save Deepening of Spirit” you may find these new house items on the Shady Swashbuckler in Nektulos Forest.
