Adjusted the Giant Chicken spawns on Lesser Aradoth
Fixed the experience given for formulas Beginner Recharge Cell and Beginner Metal Gears.
Fixed skill requirements in the Beginner Glass Nodule Fabricator.

Storm's Shadow once again fights as a werewolf, not an undead dragon.
Lowered the Risen Bioscholar's social and aggro range.
Removed the step from the quest "Essence Harvesting Mastery IV: Collect 100 Tainted Pale Essence" that requires you to obtain the tainted essence in a particular manner so that this quest now is just like the other "tainted essence" quests.
Quake Attack is now a spell-like attack rather than a weapon-focused attack. This means it will benefit from your Nature skill.
Gold Rage X is now known as Brilliant Rage (it is only used by Selenia the Brilliant)
Fixed quest "The Angler" so that it does track gathering Mackerel and it has a separate step for returning to Ted (instead of him speaking magically to you from afar)
Completed audit of construction and lairshaping experience for applying resources and made adjustments to correct various bugs.
Weapons have had resolution of textures improved to make the textures visible.
Several tweaks and some minor bug fixes have been applied to certain weapon textures in the process of increasing resolution.
Weapons and weapon parts made of wood are no longer shiny to reflect the fact wood is usually not shiny.
Demonbane Spike has been set to use a weapon model & texture that seem to have been made for it long ago, but were never used. It will use this until the new model is ready.
Blight Hounds now have far less health.
Blight Hounds and Frosthounds now have 1/3 less strength than before.
Inspire Cowardice (used by Abominations of Fear) no longer gives “Dumbfound” as a debuff, but instead gives a debuff called Terrified (a mez instead of a stun).
Stagnation (used by Abominations of Agony) is now known as Inspire Pain. It no longer gives “Dumbfound” as a debuff, but instead gives a debuff called Agony (a DoT and slow). It also now recycles every 60s (down from 90s).
Dumbfound (debuff, used by Abominations of Terror) is now known as Dumbfounded, is a flat 6 second stun (varied from 4 to 10 before), and now also reduces Dexterity and Focus. The ability now recycles every 60s (down from 90s).
Clay Scoop now limits Foraging instead of Preparing and has the skill_use_foraging (instead of skill_use_preparing) keyword.
Fixed plot in Last Stand so it has the proper terrain type beneath it.
Changed the trigger point for the quest "Iron Guard: Disturbing Rumors" so that it also has a tighter radius and updated the dialog a bit to make it clearer.
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.
Loyalty Vaults, a series of vaults available beyond Vault X and costing Loyalty Tokens, are now available for purchase.
Drugan and Fohadon are now properly listed as "Pawnbroker" and will sell their wares.
Ponds T3 and T4 will no longer be buildable on "small" size plots.
Floor tiles that are 30X30 will no longer be buildable on "small" size plots.
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.
Ted is no longer sinking underwater.
Lair Tavern footprint should be correct shape.
Loyalty vault quests have had their dialog fixed so it matches the cost of the vaults themselves.
Music in Old Rachival will now properly play.
