Options for who to display a casting bar for, as well as special coloration for allied casting bars, have been added.  These options can be found under User Interface (Advanced) – Targeting Windows.

PLAYER HOUSING

Concordium Tower Magical Manor home portals will now be visible when placed in a home.

BATTLEGROUNDS

The minimum number of players required to start Smuggler’s Den has been increased.

Fixed a bug where not all group members would be zoned to a battleground when clicking the accept button.

Level 39 and level 73 characters should have a slightly easier time in battlegrounds now.

People who are holding the flag in a Ganak match will no longer be kicked for slacking even if they fight no one. Additionally, other characters close to the flag holder will no get kicked for slacking either.

People who are holding the relic in a Klak’Anon match will no longer be kicked for slacking even if there is no one to fight. Additionally, other characters close to the relic holder will not get kicked for slacking either.

ITEMS

Drunder/Plane of War: Scout and fighter set bonuses have been combined into melee set bonuses and priest and mage set bonuses have been combined into caster set bonuses.

Violence and Ruination should now stack when applied by multiple players to the same target.

QUESTS

The Maiden of Masks: Angelia Clayton has found work at The Mermaid’s Lure in Qeynos Province District.

When entering Nettleville you should no longer get a message saying you did not have the required faction with Order of Rime. The Order of Rime are no longer interested in the goings on in Nettleville.

Leandre’s Shard: Reunion – Laelium Filmalilium has moved to the Lion’s Mane Inn and Tavern in Qeynos Capitol District.

Ash Covered Necklace – Praxum in Qeynos Province District now completes this quest.

Purest of the Pure: Eireneith Alannia will forever be hailable at the dock in Qeynos Province District if on that part of the quest.

The map icons used to find the poisoned water for the quest “The Heart of Qeynos” should be more accurate now.

On the froglok racial quest “Royal Recognition”, the Spirit of Krys’lo will no longer allow interference from guards. If he is killed by a guard, he will still update the quest for all players on his hatelist.

On the quest “Kaedrin’s Fate”, Kaedrin Ironforge is now more forgiving with his damage reflect ability.

On the fae racial quest “My Kingdom For Some Dirt”, it is no longer possible to acquire two copies of Jesenda.

    @ Singing — at least one developer/community relations type person on the main forums said that Havoc Marks were intentionally No Trade. I doubt that there’ll be any impetus for them to make them Heirloom in the near future, if ever.

    Found out you can only have 20 houses. Sony still let me buy the 21st house though I just can’t use it until I relinquish another house, which I only have prestige and my main house. Wish they would increase this, though I recognize it is VERY low on anyone’s priority list, including mine. :)

    ^^ They said they increased housing from 10 to 20 a few months ago. If they are enforcing a cap, I agree, they should not let you buy another, but come on~~ They said the limit is 20. Some where someone needs to be responsible for themselves and there is more and more of this type of “please protect me from myself” redoric going on as of late. Try to put the 21st house on another toon. Is it really that hard to make yourself a trustee?
