_____________________

*** Highlights ***

- Adjusted the spell stacking on Illusion Benefit Greater Jann to coexist with the Enchanter spell Night's Endless Terror.
- Corrected the spell descriptions for the Mana Preservation focus on the high tier ring and shoulder chase items from The Burning Lands.
- Corrected Sebilisian ornament descriptions.

- Ranger - Drifting Smoke is now flagged outdoor-only as intended.
- Rogue - All three ranks of Waylay can now be found under Combat Abilities->Stun.


*** AA ***

- All - Made the following changes to fade abilities for retuning and to provide a more consistent experience:

-- Escape abilities trigger their secondary invisibility or sanctuary buffs regardless of proximity to attackers.
-- Escape abilities will reduce the amount of hatred any NPC the caster fails to escape from by 1 million points.
-- Escape abilities now have higher reuse times and resource costs for most classes, as this better reflects our vision for these abilities.

- All - AA abilities that allow characters to leap forward have been normalized with improved reuse times, distances, new abilities for some classes, and reduced level and expansions to obtain:

- - Beastlord - Reduced the level required to purchase Cheetah's Pounce and made the ability available in Underfoot.
- - Berserker - Changed all ranks of Furious Leap to function like other leap abilities rather than relying on applying force to the caster. The reworked ability will now allow you to travel up to 234 feet forward. Reduced the initial reuse time of this ability from 60 seconds to 40 seconds and modified ranks 2-5 to reduce the reuse time by 5 seconds per rank rather than 10 seconds per rank, resulting in the final rank matching the existing reuse time of 20 seconds.

- - Rogue - Added new ranks 1 and 2 to Whisper Step at level 85 in Underfoot and 87 in House of Thule making the current rank 1 into rank 3 thereby reducing the final reuse time of this ability from 30 seconds to 20 seconds, increased the distance that all ranks allow you to travel from 104 to 234 feet, and made the final rank of this ability available in Rain of Fear.
- - Shadowknight - Reduced the level required to purchase ranks 2-4 and 6-7 of Hate Step and made ranks 6-7 available in Veil of Alaris.
- - Shaman - Reduced the level required to purchase Spirit Leap and made the ability available in Underfoot.
- - Warrior - Changed all ranks of Furious Leap function like other leap abilities rather than relying on applying force to the caster. The reworked ability will now allow you to travel up to 234 feet forward. Reduced the initial reuse time of this ability from 60 seconds to 40 seconds and modified ranks 2-5 to reduce the reuse time by 5 seconds per rank rather than 10 seconds per rank, resulting in the final rank matching the existing reuse time of 20 seconds.
- - Wizard - Increased the distance that Netherstep allows you to travel from 160 to 315 feet and added 2 additional hastening ranks bringing the final reuse time down to 10 seconds at level 95.
- Multiple - AA abilities that reduce that chance that your root spells will break (ex: Druid - Enhanced Root, Enchanter - Clinging Root, etc.) will now only apply that improvement to root spells cast by that caster. Previously, when a caster with one of these abilities would cast a root spell, the improved break chance would apply to all root spells on that target.
- Bard - Corrected an issue with rank 43 of Boastful Bellow that caused the maximum level target that can be stunned to go down to 106 rather than up to 109.
- Enchanter - Increased the effectiveness of rank 17 of Gather Mana from 37,000 instant mana and 750 mana regeneration for 1 minute to 40,000 instant mana and 1,000 mana regeneration for 1 minute.
- Magician - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 13-15 and 19-21 of Conjurer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Necromancer - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 2-7 of Embalmer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Shadowknight - Refunded all ranks of Intrinsic Efficiency, which was intended to be done when ranks 2-7 of Embalmer's Efficiency were consolidated.
- Paladin - Hand of Tunare - Increased the number of counters on this ability to 20 to account for the fact that a successful twinheal focused with the mana penalty will consume 2 charges per cast. Reduced the duration of the ability from 6 minutes to 5 minutes and reduced the reuse time of the ability from 18 minutes to 15 minutes. Updated the ability so that the healing component of your Denouncement and Valiant Deflection line of spells will continue to be twincast, but the initial mana cost of these spells will be increased to compensate.
- Wizard - Ranks 1-5 of Mirror Mirror now increase the resist modifier of the reflected spell by 20 points per rank.


*** Miscellaneous ***

- Messages sent using tell windows are now logged correctly.
- /pick will now send players and group members to the evac point of a zone.
- Corrected an issue where days entitled could be incorrect when logging in by bypassing the LaunchPad, resulting in issues with claiming veteran rewards and easily becoming marked as spam.


*** UI ***

- Fixed a crash that can occur when there are multiple entries for the same ChatWindowX_ContainerIndex saved in the UI configuration file. This should help in some of the cases where you had to delete your ini files in order to login.
- Corrected a crash bug from moving a tab left of Main Chat.
- Removed some no longer used UI elements from the Marketplace window.
- When using Search in the Barter Window, the results will only display the most expensive buy line from each buyer per unique item matched from the search.
- When searching for items in both the Bazaar Search Window and Barter Window, results over the transaction cap (2000000 platinum) will not be displayed.
- Fixed a bug where you could not disable tribute benefits when running out of favor.
