Quests, Challenges & Achievements

Skills, D&Ds & Minigames

  • The Constitution level of food has been added to its tooltip.
  • Two-handed and duel-wield icons on tooltips in the magic ability book now display as magic rather than melee.

  • Fixed an issue where a scrimshaw could be activated and deactivated to preserve charges.
  • Hexhunter bow tooltip now correctly displays item charge.
  • The options to disable specific chat windows from the 'Chat Settings' interface have been removed. The chat windows can instead be closed as normal, and re-opened from the ribbon. They're available on a mouseover of the 'social' window, as well as possible to set on a custom ribbon.

  • Tier 6 Zephyrium arrows in the Smugglers shop within a dungeon have been increased slightly to bring them in line. Up from 293 gp to 515 gp each.
  • For some reason, they were cheaper than the Tier 5 Fractite arrows, which remain the same at 396 gp.
  • Fixed Hartwin being visible in Free to Play worlds.
  • You are now able to deactivate auras from the equipment screen within the bank.
  • The Advanced Sweeping achievement has been adjusted to complete only after all of it's criteria has been met.

Ninja Fixes
