    So the Dynamistic and Epic Dynamistic Quivers are named items that are only intended to have a negligible amount of ranged power? Seriously?

    Typo in the notes. It was granting doubleSTRIKE, now only grants doubleSHOT. Sorry!

    Cocomajobo, I believe you meant to to write: "Grim and Ba[r]e[tt]", and "secret door can no[w] be detected...". It's likely a pun on "Grin and Bear it" and quite easy to misspell.

    Thanks, FlimsyFirewood! I haven't got around to reading your correspondence... Though I will presume you investigated the lack of [Spot] alert, in the last handful of days. Since the U39 notes imply the Secret Door mechanics for [Grim and Barett] have now been altered. :D

    I can't help but feel like you accidentally swapped these two. Given the nature of the Blood of Vol having vampires as the high ranking clergy, this ought to be silver. Unless you're finally admitting they are an evil religion!

    I'm not sure all these weird-ass stone walls everywhere actually improve Eveningstar any. And there's . . . more grass? I guess?

    IIRC the Blood of Vol is actually an unaligned religion, but many of its followers and Vol herself are evil. I think it's similar to Vulkoor in that sense.

    A couple weeks ago I found myself thinking "Gee, it sure has been a while since they released an update. I wonder if the dev team is winding down?"

    NOPE! You guys have packed a staggering amount of work into Update 39. Kudos!

    there really is a lot of stuff in this update. I hope there is going to be more previews to follow because there is not enough time to test and try out the new stuff this round.

    The Crimson Crown is currently black, rather than crimson. Seems wrong. Verdant Crown is more yellow than green, but maybe it's just supposed to be an awful chartreuse color?

    The Cultist Robes look fine, but the names are not descriptive. The Cultist Robe comes with the waist and neck/shoulder frills, while the "lighter" robe is the same color base piece with no frills. The names should reflect that, rather than suggesting a difference in color.
