Upkeep and Maintenance—Spiral Date 540841 (8/18/2014)
The following updates are being made to the Test Realm:
Tower of Moo Manchu • We’ve lowered the number of enemies players will encounter during multiplayer combat in some of the floors of the Tower of Moo Manchu. • The special effect from The Nefarious 6th badge now persists through combat. • Fixed a voice over and text mismatch for Lord Chagatai. • The summon Scorpion Swarm weapon power will now summon an actual swarm of scorpions. • Fixed a bug causing those who are observing combat and not engaging the enemy to crash out of the game on the 4th level of the Tower of Moo Manchu. • It’s now clearer when Corrupted Foo Dogs in the Tower of Moo Manchu use the “Sneaky Sneaky” power, hiding them from attacks.
Companion • Added some missing battle sound effects to the Pig Raider companion. • Lowered the name tags of all skarakeets (including Nikeeta) so they are closer to their bodies. • Players must now defeat all enemies instead of escape from combat for Bonnie Anne’s promotion quest, In Her Majesty's Secret Service. • Moresco De Valvida’s fireballs will appear correctly when juggled during his celebration animation. • Players will only be able to purchase Bosun Budd once from the Crown Shop.
Gear, Equipment and Combat • Inspecting the Follow Through talent from the “My Talents” interface will show more information about the number of follow through uses you receive. • Talents will now properly reset between instances of combat. • Players will more readily see their friend’s avatar picture when they port to you during combat. • Charming Gaze will now only activate if the charming unit is targeted by the attacker-- it works more like First Strike, and the charming unit will attempt to charm the attacker first. • Stealth abilities no longer ignore traps. • Moo Manchu’s Wand will now animate and sound more like a wand.
Other • Fixed a bug allowing the infinite selling of items in stacks. • Fixed a bug that was interfering with the Shadow Step Spell. • Players will less frequently disconnect while creating a character. • Huge piles of treasure are no longer able to be sold at the Bazaar. • Make sure to complete your Town Crier quests! The Town Crier will now only show four possible quests for players to undertake. • Added an appearance effect to the Opposition Champion badge. • Fixed a bug allowing players to be in multiple team up queues at one time. • Fixed a voice over and text mismatch error for Sly Winkum in the quest, Payback. • Fixed a bug that was limiting house zones to four players.
