November 10, 2010

*** Items ***

- The outdoor items available from Lorekeeper Arbel Neklene can now be traded.
- The "Box of" place-able items that show a particle effect now have no collision on the box.
- The ice cream churn, mixing bowl, and fly making bench intended for housing placement are now able to be placed properly.
- Corrected the description of the Alleviating Burst item spells.
- In order to prevent looting problems, Tangible Dream Fragments (for rank III spells) will no longer stack.
- Added the Twist of Nightmares IV focus that is present on the Ritualistic Doll to Sharra's Ritualistic Doll as well. Corrected the spelling of both item names.
- Corrected the appearance and name of "All Rare Ear." It is now named Engraved Prayer Earring.

*** Tradeskills ***

- Tradeskill vendors Rathen, Graylenn, and Trepek have moved closer to the gates of the House of Thule.
- A new tradeskill trophy carry-all is available for the highest tradeskill trophies. You can either trade in the temporary bag to Jolum as with the others, or simply use the temporary bag in place of the essence in an appropriate tradeskill container.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when opening tradeskill containers if too many recipes were memorized.

*** Quests & Events ***

- Looting the Rod of the Sandmen and Buckets of Timekeeping sand should now properly update "A Few Buckets of Sand" when looted from any sandman in Morell’s Castle.
- The task steps to loot the tomes should now be active at the same time the task step to kill the heretic pillagers is active for the "Raiders of the Sacred Tomes" task in Erudin Burning.
- Corrected the description of the loot task step in "Raiders of the Sacred Tomes."
- The Tattered Expedition Journal from the task "Uncovering the Truth" will no longer disappear when used outside of the Feerrott.
- The zone-in location for the Redemption mission from the first floor of the House of Thule has been moved to a safer location.

- Corrected an error that could cause players to not get credit for defeating the final encounter in the mission An Offering to Thule.
- The new cowardly shade in the mission Miragul's Vendetta now provides a way to leave the mission.
- The Librarian's Nightmare - When the raid resets, all players will be returned to the starting area.
- Ritual of Terror - Added new reset mechanisms to the raid. If the Tae Ew leaders are left alone for too long the event will reset. If the major terrors from Plane of Fear (Grime, for example) look for someone to kill and can’t find anyone in the area, the event will reset. Also, the mechanic that reset the event if it had gone on too long was tightened up and you have 25 minutes to finish the event once you get to the final stage.

You should have a new Glowing Dream Fragment in your possession if this happened to you.
- Bard - Added Sotor's Chant of Flame to the same quest option as Lyssa's Lively Crescendo for Glowing Dream Fragments. If you already turned in a fragment for Lyssa's Lively Crescendo alone you will need to choose that option again to get Sotor's Chant of Flame. You should have a new Glowing Dream Fragment in your possession if this happened to you.
