March 15, 2018
  • Predelay reduced from 5 seconds to 1 second while recharging Blighted gear
  • Beginner Ice Brick requires Sculpting skill to scribe, instead of Stoneworking
  • Common resource nodes have around a 30% increase in the minimum amount they yield before depleted. Most common resources have an increase in the maximum amount you can gather per ‘swing’.
  • Music in Dalimond will no longer keep restarting after you walk a short distance.
  • Cedar Treantwood Totem no longer needs to be equipped, but instead is usable to grant the Gift of the Forest.  It consumes a Cedar Treant Mettle on use.
  • Sslanis Militia: The Bloodletters (Part 2) has been slightly rearranged so that the 3 tasks can be completed in any order. It was possible for the quest to get stuck. Beware, if you currently have this quest in your log, you might have to delete it and restart the quest.
  • Expert (Mithril Mystery Boxes) prices for Formulatron and Techatron has been reduced from 500s to 150s.
  • Banner Days quest can now be repeated weekly (Hermey in New Koraelia)
