      They make the recently added and previously almost non existent 4 sec fabled pierce weapons useable by every class and their mother (should be scout only imo) and now they take this gem away from us =/

      Sad time to be a scout.

    Far Seas “Return to X” baubles have been made stackable.
    Transmuting skill has been added to the Earring of the Solstice.
    A small scroll depot is now available for level 50 guilds.
    No-Trade Far Seas Supply Division tradeskill gear is now Heirloom.
    **Quested Malice Gemstones are now correctly no-trade.** <– That one they did!

    TRADESKILLS
    Recipes had inconsistent required progress. This has been equalized across the board.

    Tradeskillers that have finished Final Assessment in the Altar of Malice tradeskill questline can now fly near Malvonicus' tower.
    Far Seas Innovation will now drop level appropriate rares for level 90-95 or level 96+ tradeskillers.
