Town Marshalls across Istaria now offer a series of quests that can be completed Daily. Rewards from these quests can be used to "re-purchased" quested items such as Tech Kits and Emblems. Additional items, such as those long vanished from the face of Aradoth, will be coming at a later date.
Ability changes for Dragons and some Biped schools to improve combat interactivity and enjoyment.

Town Marshalls should now give the correct "Greet" dialog for players of all levels.
Fall Festival NPC's have been placed on New Brommel. (Note the Summer Event NPC's are still on New Korelia. For this year we're going to run both events at the same time due to the overlap in timing of when this Content Update reaches the live shards.)
Lowered the cost of the Tavernkeeper Hiring Permit.
Tried to (again) delete the shrine from Memorial Island.
For the quest An Ancient Journal, the "a ragged book" will no longer delete itself on use. The book is now deleted as part of the quest instead.
