_____________________
*** Highlights ***
- Level 50 Heroic characters are now available on servers that have unlocked Planes of Power.
- A new heritage crate, the Guktan Heritage Crate, is available in the marketplace.
- The achievement for 25th Anniversary Raid Challenges now has a reward allowing for the choice of one of the augments found in the raid chest. See below for details.
- The game client can once again launch in full screen mode and switching between desktop windows should be smoother.


*** Items ***
- Vestments of the Forsaken may not be claimed until Call of the Forsaken unlocks.
- The Alternate Advancement abilities Taelosian Guard and Ancestral Memories III found on the Lost Legacies evolving necklaces should now function correctly.
- If you claim a bag of items and have no room, the items inside the bag will now correctly be added to your overflow items.
- Bash attacks once again proc effects from the equipped shield or shield augments for all classes.
- Laurion's Song weapons that had Stunning Snap now have Stunning Snap II.
- Updated the zone descriptions of the Night of Shadow options of the Collection Item dispenser.
- Red Flaming Fist Ornament should now work correctly for all one hand and hand to hand weapons.


*** Quests & Events ***
- The achievement for 25th Anniversary Raid Challenges now has a reward allowing for the choice of one of the augments found in the raid chest. These augments will continue to drop from the raid chest.
- Made a speculative fix for Sleeper's Tomb fabled NPC spawns.
- Added a chance for Lord Bergurgle's Crown to drop from other aqua goblins in Lake Rathe.
- Fixed the issue with Va Xi Aten Ha Ra resetting herself. This was caused by her flinging herself too high and leaving her tether area. Increased the height of her tether and added a message that tells you when she resets via leaving her area.
- Everfrost Peaks, Year of Darkpaw - Broken Key of Frost - The key can no longer be repaired before the correct step.


*** Spells ***
- Increased the total melee damage cap and minimum melee damage threshold for all ranks of the following spells:
-- Enchanter/Magician/Necromancer/Wizard - Shield of Order, Shield of Destiny, Shield of Inevitability, and Shield of Inescapability
-- Enchanter - Tenebrous Auspice, Crepuscular Auspice, Eclipsed Auspice, and Gloaming Auspice
-- Warrior - Warrior's Bastion, Warrior's Rampart, Warrior's Aegis, and Warrior's Resolve
- Bard - Lowered the proc chance for the Song of Suffering line by a little and increased the proc damage by a lot.
- Bard - Increased the spell damage added by the Performer's Explosive Aria line of songs.
- Bard - Lowered the melee proc chance for the Arcane Anthem line of songs by a little and increased damage for melee and spell procs by a lot.
- Bard - Significantly increased the damage added by the Aria and Fatesong lines of songs.
- Bard - Adjusted all ranks of the chants of Disease, Frost, Poison and Flame. Songs no longer vary in power with the level of the singer. Songs from level 76 to level 110 are much more powerful. Songs from level 111 to 125 are slightly less powerful. All songs from 81 and up now have the same maximum instrument modifier.
- Fixed some typos in the descriptions of the recently changed area of effect spells.


*** AA ***
- Increased the total melee damage cap and minimum melee damage threshold for all ranks of the following AAs:
-- Paladin - Champion's Oath
-- Shadow Knight - Reaver's Bargain
- Bard - Updated the Focus AA, Improved Chants, to provide a smoother growth rate for the damage bonus it provides. New ranks have been added, but the current max bonus of 550% has not increased. Instead, we've halved the bonus AND the cost assigned to ranks 46-55, spreading the remainder across 10 new ranks that you will be able to purchase immediately with the refund provided by ranks 46-55. Additionally, ranks 1-23 are now available in earlier expansions that correspond to their minimum level requirements, starting with Underfoot.
- Necromancer - Updated the Class AA, Life Burn, ranks 19-22, to support stacking on the same target when cast by multiple Necromancers. Also, reduced the base damage/healing per tick at ranks 21 and 22 to 200k/10k and 275k/12.5k. The level scalar on the damage component remains unchanged.
- Paladin - Fixed an issue with the new activated Class AA, Champion's Oath, that let its triggered spells, Oathbound Tithe and Oathbreaker's Penance, be added to the Blocked Buffs list.
- Paladin/Shadow Knight - Updated the Class AA, Weapon Mastery of the Knight, ranks 23-47, to have a slightly reduced minimum 2H weapon damage bonus per rank.
- Shadow Knight - Updated the Class AA, Mortal Coil, ranks 18-26, to provide a smaller armor class bonus and a flat 2 minute duration. The cost of these ranks has also decreased, which will result in an automatic points refund for all players who purchased them.
- Shadow Knight - Updated the Class AA, Soul Abrasion, ranks 19-28, to provide a smaller base lifetap damage bonus to the Shroud, Horror, and Touch of the Cursed spells/abilities while providing a larger bonus to the Spite spell line.


*** NPCs ***
- NPCs are less likely to use the terrain to hide from combat. Widened the melee combat arc slightly to allow for your wilder swings.
- Removed three enemies that could approach the Plane of Knowledge book in Shadeweaver's Tangle.


*** Miscellaneous ***
- Corrected an issue that prevented zoning in to a zone with too many people in it.
- Added more details to the message received when you are unable to loot an item.

- The output from /netstats now all goes to the same chat filter.
- Corrected an issue that caused certain illusions to place you under the world when zoning.
- Corrected an issue that caused a global Marketplace discount to override an item's higher discount.

- Clicking the Disable Reminder button in the Name Reservation Window no longer causes that button to disappear.
- The game client can once again launch in full screen mode and switching between desktop windows should be smoother.

EQUI_Inventory.xml   


*** Previously Updated ***
- Corrected an issue where certain race/class combinations could be created before the appropriate expansion had launched.
- Barren Coast, Tempest Festival – Lessons of Madness – The area of the 3rd & 4th steps of cleansing the pearl has been increased.
- Barren Coast, Tempest Festival – Lessons of Madness – The final fight has been changed to killing one scrykin and how the pearl is changed from corrupted to cleansed. It should no longer remove everyone in the group's pearl.
