    • Sentient XP stones are now able to be looted from chests more reliably, and are less likely to get stuck in your inventory.
    • Fixed typos in "Proof Against Poison" item effects.
    • Deprecated items will now automatically be cleaned out of bags.
    • Some items from Keep on the Borderlands have more appropriate material types

    • The Slayer, Explorer and Rare quests for the Cerulean Hills now have their CRs set to the correct value for the landscape: 3.
    • Fixed a logic issue in "Raven's Bane" that may have prevented Baba Lysaga's hut from opening correctly in some cases.
    • Korthos: Fixed an issue that sometimes caused a player to not be informed that they should enter the tavern in Korthos after helping Baldar and Linus.
    • Korthos: Sacrifices: The underwater section has been adjusted to provide a function for the gates, levers, and doors that previously did nothing.
    • Korthos: Redemption: A waypoint to enter the final battle of the quest Redemption has been added for when the barriers would normally prevent entry.
    • Wheloon: Thrill of the Hunt: Some erroneous cosmetic changes have been reverted.

    Miscellaneous
    • Changes have been made to the physics system related to performance issues.
    • Death Watches You Cosmetic should now display properly on all races.
    • Fixed a problem with many secret doors that made them too easy to spot, to the point of your Spot skill not mattering at all. Their Search DCs are not affected. These doors Spot DCs will now scale with level and difficulty, as inteded, and their Spot DC values will be 5 below their Search DCs. This bug only affected doors, not traps or control panels.
    • An otherworldly hut has appeared in the Stormreach Harbor.
    • There is now a moving platform elevator from the docks in the Stormreach Harbor up the cliffside.


    Known Issues
    • N/A

    Might be better to have the second color a bit brighter. Dark red is hard to read against a dark background.

    So have I just not been paying attention or is the "Associate Producer" title new? Either way congrats!

    Edit: I just haven't been paying attention.

    Hey Cocomajobo, what's up with Lynabelle? She's usually very present in the named items thread but hasn't posted in a couple of weeks.

    Hopefully just on leave rather than suffering from coronavirus!

    I tend to just let the players converse amongst themselves when I'm not needed. I don't want to stifle feedback by being too present - but when I see cool suggestions I do try to let the player know that I'm thankful :)

    Has anything Righteous Command yet? Before it was stuck at 15min duration instead of 25, used a level 4 component and cost the same as a level 4 spell (25sp). Also extend spell didn't work with it either though it works with the other Paladin self cast buffs.

    The boots are disappointing. INT and repair in a boot slot? Too valuable to waste on putting it there, especially with raid boots, and the set piece.
    That's been a huge issue over the last few updates, the gear's getting clunky with "random" stuff just thrown on, and little lateral synergy anymore.

    No new weapon types in, well... forever, grossly over-niched gear, random stats on equipment that make zero sense. It's like the Dartboard of Planning gained a level.
    I mean, it's nice you put stuff in there for all those evasion-trip DC-paladin/necromancer left-handed-three-toed builds, but how about gear for the average person.
    NO MORE MONEY UNTIL IPS NERF RETRACTED... Ranged of the World Unite!

    Hey Lynnabel,

    Since the other thread on loot is closed:


    There are 45 Items that give insightful evocation spread +1 thru +4
    There are 17 Items that give insightful Necromancy spread +1 thru +4
    There are 11 Items that give insightful Enchantment spread +1,2,4, and a 5
    There are 5 Items that insightful Illusion (+ 2, and +4)
    There are 3 Items that insightful Conjuration (+ 1, + 2, and +4)


    There is one item in game that gives insightful Transmutation: (ML10) +2

    Can us peeps looking to play Alchemists get a little more love?

    As I understand it this is a design decision, ever since they split up sheltering into physical and magical sheltering. They do not want us to get everything easily.

    So gearing your character has gone from fun, rewarding and satisfying to annoying and frustrating. Not a good change imo. but it is what it is

    Maybe frustrating to you. To other's it's part of what makes the game fun. The game's always been about managing small benefits to make something great (e.g. class splits, ap splits). Adding items to that just makes it one more step in build planning. You don't need a perfect item build, just like you don't need a perfect class split. But optimizing is part of the fun for those of us who want optimal performance.

    This preview contains changes to the games physics systems meant to reduce some performance issues. It this preview does not produce any unintended ripple effects we will be moving forward with deploying those changes to live as soon as possible in our continued work at attempting to resolve the current performance issues being experienced on live servers.

    Divine characters with Beloved of the Divine and wielding a Simple Favored Weapon were getting +1 to hit and damage when they should have gotten +3. This has been corrected.

But really, the EPL's are not worth the pain of 6 million XP in off destinies/sphere's.
