Patch notes 10- 21- 09

Ikik Developer

All servers will be down for a patch at 5am tomorrow morning.

Estimated down time is 4hrs.


− Changed the way IoG raid loot drops work so that it’s much less likely you’ll see two of the same item on one kill.
− Fixed a bug that made hate numbers for abilities show up lower than they actually were.
− Modified the ability tooltip to show your base amounts and the actual amounts modified by your core statistics like Strength & Vitality. The number in the brackets shows the modified amount and will be green if you’re over the 100% mark or red if you’re below it.
− Escape and Feign Death now strip all harmful abilities you cast on targets when you use them.
− Fix for erratic flurry not being mitigated properly.
− Fixed warp to target abilities so they fail to cast if the location you would warp to is invalid. Previously they would cast but the effects would fail, now they’re not castable unless it will succeed.
− Increased base strikethrough Amount value to 30 from 0.


− Fixed a bug that caused rest exp to disappear if you mentor.
− Fix for a bug where the social server & world server could have the wrong level for a player if they level up while mentoring.
− Fixed a bug with mentoring where the combat forms would get out of sync and you couldn't switch correctly.
− Fix for not being able to use mounts when you mentor down.

Ranger Changes

- Rangers may now have both melee and ranged paths.

- A new ability called Warden’s Temper has been added to the trainers. This ability will max out your progressive form as well as give a 30 sec buff that increases accuracy, crit chance and strikethrough chance.

- Golden Berries was removed from the forage tables.
