    Question Returning player advice: Any new important stuff i should know about since Update 13

    Hello, returning player here. I stopped playing shortly after Update 13. I skimmed thru the release notes from Update 14-17, but was wondering if there were important changes that I missed so that I won't feel too much like a Noob when I return. I am playing a lvl 12 Palemaster/splash rogue atm but have another lvl 20 Palemaster

    -Are there any nerfs (or new spells/enhancements) or changes to Palemasters or popular quests like Shroud, etc?
    -Any new nice items that I should be getting? (Like what happened with the Ioun Stones in Update 13)
    -Is there a new mechanic with Quest EXP to Character Level ratio? (I can't find it right now but kind of remember reading something about it being changed post update 13)

    Your feedback much appreciated,
    Thanks!

    Read the U14 release notes in detail (this is where the big changes are), and check out the named items threads in the below:

    Default Shroud is not the end all anymore

    all the gear you have has been rendered vendor trash.

    All the new gear is way more uber.

    +6 Characteristic stuff is now level 11. ie +6 CON Belt is now level 11 and not level 13.

    If I was not afraid of timing out on the forums I would type more, and there is more.
    April 2013 - Manager Meeting - New Forums, WOW!! We just had over 90% new players join!!

    Thanks,

    The most significant things i noticed are:

    - Spell Power - Read all about it and i think its good
    - Dodge - Also nice
    - New crafting recipes - Lotsa goodies here. I will have to sort out w/c of the new ones are the best. Any unanimous favorites? I like the DR/-

    Min Lvl 11 +6? I guess the heroic level game is becoming easier? I like this coz i solo a lot and am not that hardcore.

    Kicking myself a bit coz i missed taking the Instant Lvl 16 thing before it expired.
