Bug Fixes

This patch also included various bug fixes. Some issues fixed included UI display bugs and minor party matching bugs. I believe the most significant bug fix involves the new 3v3 arena reputation not capping out properly. It seems that you could go over the 1000 point per week limit, but that issue has been resolved.


One of the daily quests for the Mechanical Engineers’ Society reputation has been changed. The target monster for the quest “High Energy” is now a Frost Giant.

Also, the name for Sorcerer’s Painblast has been changed.
