  • Proctor Talnisk <Representative of Dominus Rile> in Fens of Nathsar should no longer fall through the floor.
  • Monsters and Bosses in Kunark Ascending dungeons all now see stealth and invis.


  • Brought the [eq2u]Ring of Pursuing Sagas[/eq2u] and [eq2u]Band of Pursuing Sagas[/eq2u] into the correct item progression.
  • [eq2u]Gossamer Blade[/eq2u] and the [eq2u]Blade of the Naya’Patel[/eq2u] will now accept cyan adornments.
  • Corrected the stats and effect on Gossamer Blade.
  • Removed the 2 extra resolve and predicated effects that were added to the wrong tier of some raid armor.


  • Nonsense is Better Than no Sense at All – Certain elements of the coin quest now require the completion of specific quests to pick up the coins.
  • Awakening Bonds: …Is Whole Again – Corrected an issue that prevented the seeress from fully updating the quest for some players.

Plus whatever emergency glitch/exploit needed to be patched in such a hurry.
