Glad they found a way to make the Cooling Chamber mission even more annoying...

Best changes I see:

- Increased the number of charges granted by the Mana Reiterate aura to 6. (Will make Ojai - - uhh - - jump for joy)
- Global tradeskill and Defiant loot will no longer drop from mobs flagged with raid timers. (ought to make clearing of the trash mobs a lot more manageable)
- Fixed an issue with the extended target window that allowed players to target entities that they should not normally be able to target. (wonder if this means no more auto-targeting the banner...)
- Made some peripheral changes to The Brothers Zek raid to fix some unintended loopholes. (about F**King time)

Now if they would FIX the monk aa's that were introduced into UF, I would be really happy.
