Bugs Squashed

  • Fixed the problem of warrior tanks occasionally not receiving Instance Matching buffs. Contrary to rumor, lancers were not behind it.
  • Fixed the problem of some quest items remaining in inventory when the related quests were dropped. Now you can learn to let go.
  • Fixed the problem of Kaprima maintaining Fiery Rage status even after resetting from previous rage in the Fane of Kaprima.
  • Advanced ingredients no longer drop after successful gathering attempts.
  • Fixed the problem where players under the “join guild” cooldown were able to create and join guilds. No more willy-nilly guilding up.
  • Fixed the problem where the “Entrepreneurial Spirit” quest would take more normetal ore and star essence than the quest asks for.
  • Fixed the problem of “conversation” social actions appearing when interacting with the vanarch flag object.
  • Fixed the problem where candidate names were cut from the vanarch competition UI when a candidate’s name exceeded 12 characters.
  • Deathmatch announcements are no longer blocked and no longer appear as a string of pound signs (##############). Stupid ####### bug.
  • Players can now delete the cave charge item obtained during the “Pulling the Fangs” quest.

    Known Issues

  • When trying to use the “Notes” function in the Friends list, there is room for only 16 characters for the friend added last.
