_____________________


*** Highlights ***

- New AAs and spells are now available for all classes! Visit the vendors in the guard camp of Ethernere-Tainted West Karana to find the new spells.
- Warm winds begin to blow in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and the South Desert of Ro. Winds like these must portend the arrival of something or someone. Stay alert for when the time comes!
- Optimizations have been made to the Tower of Rot, which should improve frame rates in the zone and the raid.


*** Marketplace ***

- Catch a ride on a new Black Wolf mount, arriving this month on the 25th!
- New Player Studio items will be arriving this month on the 18th and 25th! In July, additional items will appear on the 2nd, 9th, and 16th.


*** Items ***

- Increased the recast time on the Miniature Horn of Unity to 10 minutes, but the effect is much friendlier with stacking.
- Added tribute values to several items which had none in Call of the Forsaken.
- Shroud of the Forgotten will now correctly evolve into a cloak. This item once again has a chance to drop from rare NPCs in the Tower of Rot zone, heroic adventure, and mission.
- Heroic Characters will no longer be offered heroic-only augment rewards for quests in early House of Thule zones if the characters have already received the augment rewards for a particular slot.
- Replaced the non-functional Illusions of Grandeur focus on Enchanter robes with a new focus that reduces the recast time of Phantasmal Unity.
- Added a new /destroyitem command that behaves like clicking the Destroy button with an item on the cursor.


*** Quests & Events ***

- Warm winds begin to blow in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and the South Desert of Ro. Winds like these must portend the arrival of something or someone. Stay alert for when the time comes!
- Narius' Plan - Jrint the Scout has hidden himself in a different location of Tower of Rot, away from the Corpseflower.
- The Search for the Ultimate Story - If you are on the proper step of this quest, you will be able to configure your Clockwork Key using the front door to Meldrath's Majestic Mansion.
- Raid chests in the Ancient Heroes quests from Old Man McKenzie can now be opened with 6 or more players present.


*** Spells ***

- New spells are now available for all classes! Visit the vendors in the guard camp of Ethernere-Tainted West Karana to find the new spells.
- Rogue - Knifeplay Discipline can no longer be activated while Rogue's Fury is active.
- Changed the math behind the Hundred Hands effect. All spells that use this effect have been updated so that they should have the same effectiveness when applied.


*** NPC ***

- Bards, rejoice: drakes can no longer hold weapons in their mouths!


*** AA ***

- New AAs are now available for all classes!
- Bard - Casting bars are now displayed when using AAs with a casting time.
- Bard - When actively singing or using /melody, the song or melody will now be interrupted when using an AA with a casting time.
- Bard - Dirge of the Sleepwalker will now show a casting bar when activated, and then it will continue to refresh like any song. The dirge can be stopped with /stopsong or by left clicking a spell slot.


*** Tradeskills ***

- Orphic cards used in research now correctly produce Strength of the Gladetender Rk. II instead of Strength of the Tracker Rk. II.
- Newer tradeskilled equipment items that were missing shared recast timers have had them applied.
- Magi Rune recipes have been changed to use the general Spell Research Kit.
- Tradeskilled items that were triggering with incorrect skill usage have been corrected.


*** Achievements ***

- Corrected an issue that caused the achievement "Vindicator of the Call (Group)" to be awarded after completing the task "A Rotten Heart" rather than the task "The Fall of Lord Bayle" as intended.
- The two-handed piercing skill has been factored into Weapon Proficiency achievements.
- The "Swing and a Miss" challenge achievement is now worth 10 points instead of 40.
- The "The Fall of Lord Bayle: Challenge of Toughness" challenge achievement is now worth 10 points instead of 40.
- The description for the "Figurine Collector's Chest: Denizens" achievement now correctly describes the collectibles as "Denizens," not "Dolls."


*** Miscellaneous ***

- Optimizations have been made to the Tower of Rot, which should improve frame rates in the both the zone and the raid.
- The ", Spirit of Norrath" and "the Adventurous" suffix titles are now applied appropriately.
- The Icebreaker in Iceclad Ocean and the Pirate Runner's Skiff that ferry travelers between the Northern Desert of Ro and Iceclad Ocean have resumed their operations.


*** UI ***

- Options were added for Hide AFK Pets and Hide AFK Mercenaries. Type /hideafk to see the slash command usage.

- Changed -
EQUI_Animations.xml
EQUI_OptionsWindow.xml
dragitem195.dds
dragitem196.dds


*** Previously Updated ***

- In the Tower of Rot zone and missions, Shroud of the Forgotten was temporarily removed from NPCs that drop it. It has now returned.
- In the Tower of Rot quest "Narius' Plan," interrogating Scions will now give credit to your whole group.
- Some NPCs in the Chapterhouse mission "Run, You Fools!" will no longer hit players for unusually high damage.

Does that mean if I use a Berserkers Level 65 War Cry or Ancient: War Cry... they have the same HHH effect or I am reading it wrong?
