Upkeep and Maintenance – Spiral Date 510363 (3/20/2014)
All stitched items now inherit the "No Trade" classification as intended.
Logging out while viewing a loading screen will no longer cause players to be stuck during character selection with a "Verifying Character...Please Wait" notification.
NOTE: Although we believe this update will generally fix the "Verifying Character...Please Wait" issue, if you do experience a stuck character as described after this update, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to get your character back in the skyways ASAP and investigate more as to what would be causing this issue for you.
