*** Events ***

 

– Raids in Dynamic zones in Gates of Discord now require a minimum of 12 people to be started.

– Sendaii the Hive Queen raid will now lock out the expedition after the glowing egg is broken.

– NPC’s should no longer re-spawn after being killed in the Controlling the Beast mission set in Stoneroot Falls.

– The mission “Taking Control” from Stoneroot Falls now only requires 3 people to start it.

– Adjusted the rewards on monster missions so they scale better based on how long it’s actually taking to complete the mission.

 

*** Tradeskills ***

 

– Deep Orc Essence now requires less meat.

– Disabled the spell research creation of the spell Draught of Lightning.  This was done because it is a quest derived spell.

– Some very old erudite only combines have had their trivials adjusted up from being no-fail to on par with other combines of that era.
