Marisha Kur'a Combat Prowess once again modifies Marisha Kur's Blessing.


TRADESKILLS
The quest “Scale of Research” now spells out in the quest helper text that the Duality’s sanctum is in The Hole under Paineel, for those who don’t like reading the quest journal details.
The message in a bottle is now attached to the “Shipwrecked!” quest, for real this time.
The recipe for makeshift barricades for Quartermaster Robbins now uses incense as a fuel rather than candles.
The sparkles highlighting Gnorbert's backpack so you can find it, no longer obstruct you from actually clicking the backpack (oh the irony).


QUESTS

Shattered Seas: Revelations in Highhold - Now offers a house item as a quest reward.

Additions to build:

POPULATION / ZONE PROGRESSION
Fixed an issue where Valdimus V'Derun's choir members would not despawn after Valdimus V'Derun was killed.
Fixed some issues with the BloodyBattleof Kithicor Event would not conclude properly.
Fixed an issue where Villandre would spawn multiple times in Ossuary: Primordial Altar.

Grimlings in Merinep Cove should now be more plentiful.
Fallen Warrior's ability Torment Soul now burn significantly less power.

Castle Highhold [Solo]
The Gudre Blackhand encounter should be more forgiving for all classes.


ABILITIES / ALTERNATE ADVANCEMENT
The savagery drain on Savage Defiance has been reduced to 15% from 50%.
Shadow now inflicts damage based on the damage the caster is doing rather than copying their abilities. Swashbucklers also reduce 47 DPS and haste and brigands reduce ~1600 mitigation while it's active.
Temporal Mimicry now copies the damage inflicted by the target. It uses the target's damage values directly so it cannot critically apply or use potency since it's getting those stats from the target. It no longer recasts the spells.
