- The targets in "A Boisterous Alliance" have been changed.
- Clicking the humidor after obtaining the roots in "Refilling the
Humidors of Root" will now update the quest.
- Chamberlain X'Haviz is now a bit more formidable.
- "Restocking the Blockers" can now be completed.
- Emissary Kvikz of Freeport has been spotted in the Sanctum of the
Scaleborn. She may need some help infiltrating the enemy stronghold.
- Various named encounters and related creatures in Palace of the
Awakened have been modified.
- Tradeskill-made Xegonite Chainmail items should now appear on your

formidable.

learned the ability to see invisible and stealthed opponents.

Achievements:

again.


*** Player-versus-Player ***

- Melee range has been increased from 8m to 10m
- Players will now be removed from your list of recent kills after 30
minutes of real time. You can use /recent_pvp_kills to get a list of the
names of the players that are on your recent kills list, as well as the
time remaining until they are removed (list retains the current cap of
10 players). Killing a player already on your recent kills list will
move them to the top of the list and reset their time.
- If you die on a PvP server in a non-Arena zone, you will be able to
respawn at any standard respawn point in the zone (not just nearby
locations).
- If a member of your group initiates combat with a player above the
neutral threshold, all nearby members of his or her group will be
eligible to receive rewards.
- Beware, you may lose an item from your inventory if you fall in a PvP
battle!
- You will no longer lose all your coin upon death. Instead, the amount
varies within a percentage range.
- If you are able to get back to the treasure chest with your loot in it
(i.e. the chest that appeared when you died), you will no longer share
the loot with other members of your group since it was yours to begin
with.
- Qeynos and Freeport players now have separate respawn and evacuation
points in Freeport and Qeynos, as well as Antonica, Commonlands,
Nektulos and Thundering Steppes. Exiled players share all respawn and
evacuation points; sitting on the fence isn't easy.
- As the war rages on, both Lucan and Antonia's influence diminishes the
farther their troops travel from the city walls. Adventurers should be
careful traveling in the outer lying zones, as they now have less
protection to rely on. If a player is far too low of a level to be in
the zone, they can now be attacked without repercussion to the attacker.
This level range increases the further you get from Qeynos and Freeport.
I.E. in Desert of Flames or Kingdom of Sky, you can now attack ANY
player level 10 and above since they are so far beyond the control of
Lucan or Antonia.
- Characters of different alignments will no longer be able to share
world chat channels or enter custom chat channels created by the
opposition.

Darkness" can now get "Delving Into Darkness" again from the Antiquitor.

- If you delete the Dusty Blue Stone and have not yet started the quest,
you can hail Vida again to get another.
- Disciple Telas`velle should now be giving out writs in the same manner
as other writ givers.


*** Combat ***

- The examine information for Rogue and Predator offensive stances has
been corrected. It previously stated that the stances decreased parry,
even though they do not.

- The stealth effect for Sneak Attack will now trigger much faster.

Paladin changes:
- Ranged Paladin spells can now be interrupted as normal.

* /toggleshowadventurexp - Cycles through the experience types
