*** Purpose Tags ***

- All-new purpose tags now show you at a glance what services an NPC provides or what role they have in Norrath.
- The purpose tag is visible beneath the NPC's name.
- Asking a guard to help you find an NPC will now allow you to search according to purpose tag. For example, you can search by "mender" to find a mender.
- Currently, purpose tags exist for the following types of NPCs, and more will be added in the future: Banker, Spell Scrolls, Combat Arts, Advanced Tradeskill Recipes, Court Treasures, Arcane Scientist, Dismal Rage Priest, Freeport Militia Officer, Seafury Buccaneer, Concordium Mage, Tunarian Alliance Grove Warden, Qeynos Guard Officer, Celestial Watch Priest, Guard, Bartender, Barmaid, Mender, Shieldsmith, Alchemist.


*** Writs ***

- Adventure writs have been added that target level 50 to 55 creatures. Characters level 45 and higher can obtain these writs.
- There are writs available for both soloers and groups.
- Writs completed for one city faction no longer decrease your standing with other city organizations. More extensive changes to city factions are planned for a future update.


*** Dungeon Exploration ***

The Ruins of Varsoon
- Many existing named encounters have been changed, and the treasures gained by defeating them have been improved. Loot will be unique to each named rather than shared across a global drop table.
- New items have been created that will drop from some of the named encounters. They also have a chance to drop rare crafting components.
- Named mobs tend to have recognizable placeholders. While named encounters are still rare spawns, in many cases they will be seen more often.


*** Desert of Flames ***

Quests
- There is no longer a delay between the steps involved in the El'khazi's Carpet quest series.
- The reward for the El'khazi's Carpet quest series has been increased in speed.
- Groups can now zone into the Samiel Pirate boat instance with only one player on the quest, "An Ancient Desert Power."
- Level 60 characters can now obtain keys from the sweepers.
- Players who had previously completed "Into the Past" and sold the reward can now receive the updated reward by speaking with Siraj al Din in the Pillars of Flame.

Zones and Population
- Travel carpet locations no longer require you to own a carpet to use them.
- There are now separate scroll vendors inside each court's headquarters for selling spell scrolls and combat arts.
- Some of the more powerful cyclopes in the Pillars of Flame have decided to retreat to their overly large homes.
- Certain named creatures in Desert of Flames have been adjusted to provide a challenge for soloers and groups of the appropriate level, where they may previously have been overpowered in many cases but underpowered in a couple others.

Items
- Some of the fabled armor from Desert of Flames now has a more colorful appearance.
- Adept I and Master I spells should now drop more frequently in Desert of Flames zones.
- Rare tradeskill components can now be found on certain named creatures in Desert of Flames. As with the recent changes to the Ruins of Varsoon, Runnyeye, and the Temple of Cazic-Thule, the best place to get the best stuff is inside dungeons.


*** The Bloodline Chronicles ***

- The Mold Reaper in the Tombs of Night is no longer quite as hungry for your party’s power.


*** The Splitpaw Saga ***

- The Trial of Harclave quest now awards less experience per encounter defeated within the zone but more XP for completing the quest. Loot will drop less frequently within the zone. While the quest can still be completed once per level, the reuse timer for the zone has been reduced to 8 hours to allow new players more chances to gain the trust of the gnolls. The quest will scale with level from 20 up to a maximum of 50.


*** Veteran Rewards ***

- All existing Wands of Restoration granted as Veteran Rewards have been replaced by Field Repair Kits, which allow you to repair damaged items anywhere. One charge of a Field Repair Kit is equivalent to visiting a mender.
- The number of charges you had remaining on your wands will be carried over to the kits. For example, if you had used 2 of the 3 charges on a Wand of Restoration, you will now have a Field Repair Kit with one charge remaining.
- If you have already claimed and used all the wands you had available, you cannot /claim any additional Field Repair Kits. The kits are replacing the wands; they are not being granted in addition to them.


*** Gameplay ***

- The base speed at which all player characters run has been increased. This makes mounts and run-speed buffs have an improved overall effect as well. Happy feet (and horsies)!
- Spirit shards no longer drop upon character death. Items still take damage, and experience debt is now applied at a consistent percentage across all levels. The maximum amount of XP debt a character can accrue is 50%.
- Other group members no longer gain hate when one member aggros or engages an encounter. If the party member who attacked or aggroed a creature dies or feigns death before others in the group do something to generate hate, the encounter will break instead of attacking the other group members. Please note that certain very wise and powerful opponents will still know everything they need to about your raid force and will act accordingly.
- Characters level 52 and above should now correctly receive skill increases at mini-dings.
- Level 60 characters can now work off XP debt.


*** Quests ***

- If you've deleted any of the tomes in the Enchanted Lands' solo Leatherfoot Tales series, speak with Deputy Stoutgut to get a piece of his mind!
- Leelee Brewbubble in Zek, the Orcish Wastes is a little less strict about who she will let gather reagents for her.
- The Heart of Fear quest should now properly update.
- Tarby Boulderboom can now be hailed by right-clicking him.
- Players who have finished the quest "Protect the Priest's Ship" on the Blackwater Seas boat should now receive their reward from Scholar Milnik in the Thundering Steppes.


*** Items ***

- Treasure chests will now show different contents (copper, silver, gold, or gold and jewels) depending on the quality of the treasures within.
- Mounts now hear your call sooner.
- The Guise of the Deceiver's latent power has been unlocked!
- No-destroy items used to progress heritage quests can now be destroyed. If you do decide to destroy these items, you must delete the quest in order to start over.

- Gathered orbs now have skill benefits.
- Stardust Bracelet can now be equipped.
- Broach of Silence now has a proper icon.


*** Zones and Population ***

- Most non-humanoid creatures (except where it makes sense for them to do so) no longer make use of player spells and combat arts. Instead, they have their own abilities that befit the type of creature they are. If you catch any baby deer casting Ice Comet, please let us know.
- The Sootfoot goblins have assigned a somewhat weaker sentry to patrol the entry tunnel to Lavastorm.
- There should no longer be epic x2 encounters spawning or roaming through Stormhold.
- Only one player is required to have completed the quest "Putting Maltena to Rest" for a group to enter Nektropos Castle: The Return.
- When a player zones out of the Court of Truth, their entire group will no longer transport with them automatically.
- Fish swimming in the shallow rivers of the Enchanted Lands and the Isle of Refuge should no longer break the encounter immediately when attacked. They will jump out of the water a short distance to battle you, however.
- The cursed guardian should now take the appropriate action toward Sheila Everling in Nektropos Castle: The Return.


*** Spells and Combat Arts ***

- The run speed effect from Spirit Totem of the Wolf no longer stacks with run speed buffs.
- Signet of Intuition (Enchanter), Signet of Insight (Coercer), and Rune of Understanding (Illusionist) no longer have stacking issues that prevent one buff from being cast while others from this spell line are active.
- Spells will now interrupt automatically if the target goes out of range while the spell is being cast.
- Spells and combat arts currently being cast will now land on creatures as long as they are within 15 meters or twice the spell's range when casting is complete, whichever is greater. The initial casting ranges have not changed.
- Encounters will now provide rewards if a charmed pet was used to initiate combat and the charm breaks during the fight.
- Charms, hostile AoE spells, and innate abilities such as breath weapons can no longer be reflected.
- Reactive spells that are triggered by the target's death (i.e. the Templar spell Atoning Fate) now work correctly. Previously these spells would not trigger if their target was killed by a proc.

- You can now close windows via the right-click context menu. This is especially useful if you have window frames disabled.

- If the minor version number does not match, some functionality may not work correctly, but the window will still be displayed.
