  • Bounty Hunters will now provide their proper introduction and dialog
  • The Dark Knight power Dark Curse no longer checks "to-hit" but now has a 10 second recycle time
  • Bhalalar warriors are now using more appropriate shields.
  • Pre-reqs for Confessor's 'Purgation', 'Visage of Purity', Warlock's 'Calm', 'Danger Sense', and Wizard's 'Translocation' have been lowered.
  • The Channeler Spell 'Blizzard' and the Fury spell 'Call the Blizzard' have had their particle effects toned down
  • Mouseover descriptions for 'mes' type spells will now explicitly point out that they only affect monsters.
  • Grathol is now the alpha basilisk in his pack rather than the runt
  • Barbarians no longer have any skill prerequisites to acquire the Throwing skill - they all gain it at level 20.

  • Sun Dancer and Gladiator trainers will now train Unarmed Combat Skill
  • Stun immunity applied for all stuns now last three times as long as the stun (used to be twice as long).

  • Monsters will be less confused if they are stunned before they even make contact.
  • New cities should start to appear in a timely manner on the world map.

Fixes
  • Fixed a number of floating building problems
  • The Undead Hunter Discipline Rune is now dropping
  • Fixed a number of typos and spelling errors for NPC names, titles and dialogs
  • Fixed the outfits for a number of NPCs that were missing shoes, sleeves, etc.
  • Fixed a problem where powers with quick cast times could cause an "infinite" casting animation loop
  • Fixed a few mobs that weren't assisting when called by friends
  • Fixed the mouseover descriptions for chants to better indicate that they are indeed chants
  • Fixed a number of zones where NPC's were immediately respawning
  • Fixed a couple of instances of guards whacking at each other.

New
  • Archer rune now grants crossbow users powers comparable to those granted for bow users. The new powers are called Fusillade and Thread the Needle, and will be made available to Archery Rune holders who also have Crossbow at 80%. These powers should be exactly the same in functionality as Rapid Shot and Precision (the bow equivalents).
  • Bards have gotten a number of improvements. Bards now get Sword and Staff Mastery. Hate values associated with recovery chants have been reduced. Durations for Attribute buffs have been fixed. Effects for group Attribute buffs have been improved. Mana cost for chants have been removed.
  • Stamina cost for various weapon powers have been retuned to be more appropriate based on the weapon's speed (for example, stamina cost for daggers has been reduced as daggers are faster weapons)
  • Storm Lords now get a skill called "Stormcalling" which is the focus skill for their powers.
  • Blood Prophets now get a skill called "Flamecalling" which is the focus for their powers
  • The focus skills for Storm Lords and Blood Prophets are automatically granted with a 35 point bonus for anyone that owns or applies these disciplines and the discipline trainers now train these skills as well.
  • Runemasters will now sell fixed warrants
  • The Channeler spells 'Ignite' and 'Incendiary Blast' now have particle effects
  • Weapon powers now have distinctive particle effects depending on the type of debuff in the power
