Server Update September 25 2022

General Changes
* New tintable versions of various outfits.

* AsuraKing appearances should now be available from the appearance kit.

* Some new outfits.

* Added feature which allows disabling the 100 cap for EFFECT_TYPE_DAMAGE_INCREASE and EFFECT_TYPE_DAMAGE_DECREASE.

* New NPC portraits.

* As the Time of Troubles continues, wild magic is getting more wild. Wild magic weather should finally work, increased duration of wild magic earthquakes, many new effects when triggering wild magic while casting spells.

- Darkhold Bane shrine no longer has its magical effect, due to Bane's death. In addition, Zhentarim Elite have been replaced with Storm Watch soldiers, due to Fzoul being replaced by Manshoon. Several banners also updated with new Asura banners.

- New DM NPCs.

- New Antras armor hak added to module.

* Names fixed on two items.
Skills and Abilities
* Removed Tenser's transformation unequipping weapons on PC after spell ends since it's no longer needed. Every weapon is equippable by default.
Bug Fixes
* Bigby Interposing Hand will no longer stack with itself when cast by the same caster. This only applies to the spell as cast by mobs, as player ones do not have this issue.

* Sewer quest fix.

* Bugfixing springboard, was applying fortitude save to wrong target.

* Adjustments to programmed image spells to get them to not use their abilities or items, hopefully.

* Texture fixes for various appearances.

* Fix for a misaligned door in the lower mausoleum.

There were also a few updates over the last few months with other content, but no news posts were made for them, sorry. Copy pasting the SVN logs here:

It is no longer needed because the new xp_mysql provides a charset option in the xp_mysql.ini where we've set utf8mb4. In older versions of this plug-in the charset was erroneously hardcoded to latin1 which was not the correct charset for NWN2.

Message: Changed Jump DCs:
1) If jump is smaller than 11 feet, DC is static 5.
2) If jump is bigger than 10 feet, then DC is 10 + distance + height2.
3) Creatures can't jump up higher than their reach 1.5.
Height is only added in case it's bigger than half the creature reach (2 ft for tiny, 4 ft for small, 8 ft for medium, 16 ft for large, 32 ft for huge creature).
Thus, a medium sized creature will have 10 + distance DC in case their jump height doesn't exceed 4 feet. This doesn't apply to jumping down, DC is never added to such jumps, but PC can and will receive damage if jumping from too high ground.

Also, fixed unnecessary sanitation about negative damage bonus in northlander hewing i added before. The function does already return proper value even if passed parameter is less than 1.

My bad, i didn't expect discord to eat * sign. Please read formula as follows: 10 + distance + height * 2

(2 ft for tiny, 4 ft for small, 8 ft for medium, 16 ft for large, 32 ft for huge creature).
EasternCheesE — 07/28/2022
Just to clarify, it means that tumbling up is only possible if tumble height is <= 1 ft for tiny, 2 ft for small, 4 ft for medium, 8 ft for large, 16 ft for huge creatures.

If you still can't cast after update, please ping me.

We had incorrect teleport DCs for formian hive, forlorn ruins, north of mist lake and forgotten city.
I changed our settings for game to treat them as proper UD areas in that regard. If you still can easily teleport from there to surface and back, please inform me (if DC is too low). Also, if you get super high DC for teleporting to these areas from UD, please report as well.
This change is effective immediately, no patch is needed.

Server Update September 26 2022

General Changes
* ToT earthquake effects made less frequent and no longer affect the Nexus.

* NPC heartbeats now also apply PC heartbeats, thus they will gain benefits from all the heartbeat mechanics PCs do. This includes things like Parry AC, stealth icon, and so on.

* ToT weather reduced from 40% chance per reset to 20% chance. It's a heavy effect, a near 50/50 chance is probably a bit too much.

* Reducing file size for some textures.

* Updated armor and stats for new DM NPCs.
Bug Fixes
* Robe MP 42 fix.

* Fix for death effect being will save instead of fortitude save (given most of save-or-die spells are fort save and given it's not enchantment school).

* Fixed an issue that was preventing Demoralize Opponent from correctly applying AB and saving throw reductions.

* Tint map and AK appearance kit fixes.

* Fix for hair clipping through two helmets, fixing specular color on male version.

* NPCs now use the new proficiency system when spawning in. This should hopefully prevent them from spawning in naked because of missing the proper proficiencies.

* Typo fix for wild magic power increase text.

* Flaming Fist armor is now identified by default so if it does get unequipped, they can actually put it back on.

* Fix for undocumented cosmo +2 to skills turned off as it seemed to be affecting unrelated feats too.

Server Update October 2 2022

General Changes
* Magic sword base item name change to be less confusing in toolset.

* New ToT effect.

* Tint choices changed with appearance kit should now be recorded on the item and told to the player when changing tints. This will only work with new tints applied after this patch, previous ones won't be retrieved.

* Removing some extraneous blueprints.

* Updated textures and tints for an athorn helmet.

* Adding another DM NPC blueprint.

* Resized BG by BG helmets 136 and 137 human male and human female to better fit player heads.

* Added new ioun stone vfx's. These don't (currently) apply to the belt ioun stones.

* Looted wands made actually useful. Now come with 50 charges (or more), unless the wand is a spell above normal wand limits (eg finger of death), which are single use instead. Many looted wands, especially damage ones, are now looted with caster level 15, making them more useful. Particularly powerful effects like displacement and haste still have their lower caster levels, but still gain the benefit of more charges on the wand than before.

* DM NPC updates.

* First update of Baldur's Gate redesign with Temples upgrades and shrines addition.

* Counterspell reworked to try and fix issue with identical/school spells not being valid for counterspell and with dispels always using highest level dispel first. Counterspell no longer has a range check (you still need to be within Long range to activate Counterspell mode on someone, but once it's active, the range of the spells used don't matter).

* Some work on faction system foundations.

* Some updates to new DM NPCs.

* Removing redundant NPC blueprints.

* Swamp skyrings added to skyring 2da so they can be used on maps.
Bug Fixes
* Storm Watch NPC guards should no longer randomly walk around when created with a spawner.

* Fixing tint maps.

* Fix for AK directory not showing up in app kit.

* Hopefully fixed the epic ninja robes so they can be changed by old appearance changer. Appearance set to Cloth 1 and removed all accessories (people change the appearance of everything anyways, so this gives a clean slate).

* A small fix for Arcane Fire not being set to Su.

* Fix for skill feat mod. Needed to preserve a clobber register. Needs further testing.

* Bug fix on Finesse system.

* Fixing some NPC appearances.

* Removed duplicate version of a boot model that was preventing it from being tinted.

* Small under-the-hood changes for mimic sticking.

* Looted wands given the (Type) to {Type} fix so that it does not appear in the in-game name.

* Fixes for Formian hive and Forgotten city areas that were not properly marked as UD areas.

* Updating a missing file.

* Correction to light, path and unusable doors in new Baldur's Gate Temples.

* Correction to have the Priest of Gond properly appear in the new Temple.

Server Update October 9 2022

General Changes
* Update for armor tint.

* Clutter begone! Moved many blueprints around, removed obsolete ones, removed redundant categories of creatures, added lots of tags to untagged monsters, fixed appearances of a few npcs.

* Tentative TLK entries for the flight and respiration upgrades.

* New Map - Fields of the Dead South. Updates to transitions and map notes on connecting maps.

* Adjusted the conversation dialogue to the new NPC priest of Torm.

* Update for BG guard uniforms.

* Dead magic in BG zones, including guildhalls. Magical vfx like magical lights are not removed just because this is too much work for a short term dead magic period, but RP that they are off as well. *Edit* Due to resource names and tags being different, the code for this didn't work. As a quick fix, dead magic only applies in Thayan Enclave and Temple of Mystra, as the focal points of magic in BG.

* Removing thayan enclave dispel traps due to dead magic in BG.

* Because of just how much magic vfx the Temple of Mystra has, that one got a direct tweak. All magical lights and effects in the Temple of Mystra have been removed due to dead magic in the city. Also, the portals no longer work. This is why you don't over-rely on magic, kids. Hope those portal rooms have actual non-magical means of access or some people might starve.

* Magical lights removed from exteriors of buildings in east district.

* Adding a vfx.

* Boareskyr Bridge destroyed due to Bhaal's death. Winding Water river poisoned across several maps. This has also become a dead magic zone as a result.
Bug Fixes
* Fix for black lines bug on patch notes hopefully.

* A few minor corrections and shadows issues.

* Update to Wagons Ho merchant to maintain relevance to trading area at DM Spartacus's request. Updated NPC wouldn't give an option to update, so deleted file in bgsever1 then copied in the file again and it then allowed me to update it. Hopefully the replacement NPC will work with the new items now.

* Cows should no longer spawn badly wounded.

* More updates on the new temple maps.

* Fix for some armors not working.

* Display bug fix for several backgrounds.

* Walkpath corrected in the Temple of Umberlee.

* Minor corrections to few flying placables in the Temple of Torm and Ilmater.

* Wild magic should now properly ignore Supernatural abilities.

Server Update October 25 2022

Highlights
* The Time of Troubles is now over, with all that that entails.

* New Surface/Underdark passages. The exact specifics won't be provided here, but in short, most routes now require going through CR 22+ dungeons, as well as making Survival skill checks (modified by things like torches/darkvision/maps) in order to avoid getting lost. Some existing transitions have been altered, feel free to regard it as a lasting effect of the Time of Troubles. New routes are not marked with mapnotes, they must be discovered by exploration.

* New temperature system. Certain hot or cold environments will periodically inflict heatstroke or hypothermia upon player characters, dealing damage and fatiguing them on a failed Fortitude save. Placing PC Tools campfires in cold areas will keep nearby characters warm, fully resisting the damage from a failed Fortitude save will prevent fatigue, and epic Survival checks (DC 60+) will remove the need for a Fortitude save. Extremely hot/cold areas will still apply some damage regardless of Fortitude/Survival checks, but this damage will not fatigue the character even if it is not fully resisted.
General Changes
* Abbot Sulnar found his missing hand and his missing eye. Also, spent some time at the local cosmetics store and had a little facelift.

* New acme armors.

* Rework of DM blueprints.

* LA army removed from Corm Orp. LA and Zhent diplomats remain inside the town hall with Lord Dunast.

* Bart re-added to Corm Orp. Attempted fix for Darkhold-Corm Orp transition.

* Updated respiration checks to account for Amphibious/Breathlessness feats.

* Deity updates. Cyric and Iyachtu Xvim added (Xvim doesn't grant spells yet). Finder Wyvernspur finally grants spells canonically. Gilgeam is now dead and no longer grant spells. Waukeen is now missing and no longer grants spells. Bane, Bhaal, Myrkul, Herne, and Ibrandul are dead but still grant spells, just other gods provide spells through them (Cyric for Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul, Malar for Herne, and Shar for Ibrandul). New heresy religions: Risen Sun, Dark Moon, Three-Faced Sun (not selectable for divine spellcasters yet). New monster deities for pve rework, not available to players.

* Tlk updates. Several deities now have actual descriptions of their general nature and dogma. This will eventually be expanded to cover all deities, but this will be a gradual process.

* Update on a Dungeon Masters map.

* Adding the shrine of Waukeen to prepare future implementation of Baldur's Gate maps (entry possible through the Sword Coast Commercial Exchange for now, it will have its own entry later).

* Added identifying variables to all BG city maps to support city-wide scripts (like dead magic).

* 1 second delay when applying Knockdown removed.

* Dead magic now properly affects all of BG city. To avoid penalizing new players, it is limited to inside the city walls so that it doesn't affect the graveyard and bandit cave.

* Small revision to the South Fields of the Dead map.

* New Surface/Underdark passages. The exact specifics won't be provided here, but in short, most routes now require going through CR 22+ dungeons, as well as making Survival skill checks (modified by things like torches/darkvision/maps) in order to avoid getting lost. Some existing transitions have been altered, feel free to regard it as a lasting effect of the Time of Troubles. New routes are not marked with mapnotes, they must be discovered by exploration.

* Blackrock and Kro's Labyrinth are no longer linked.

* Kro's Labyrinth and Formian Hive are now Underdark areas, not Upperdark ones. They are linked to each other via the previous Blackrock entrance in Kro.

* Titanfist Mines are now linked to Troll Claws Old Mines level 2, instead of Formian Hive (or Ogre Caves before that).

* New temperature system. You now take damage (and possible fatigue) from being in areas that are overly hot or cold. Server 2 areas have been adjusted with this system, server 1 will be adjusted later. Placing PC Tools campfires will warm you up in a cold area.

* Underdark rat horses no longer go between Undrek Naudal and Sshamath/Illithids/Mist Lake. Mist Lake boat no longer connects to Rockrun.

* Jump and Tumble can no longer be used when slowed.

* ToT effects turned off.

* Most UD dungeons now correctly prevent resting, and many also block teleportation.

* Update to Doron Amar :
- Housing available, as close as we can get to Elven culture (And as such, the map can be visited a little further)
- Vegetation modified to better reflect the forests as described in lore (ancient forest, moisture and moss, mists, high oaks and weeping willows)
- Addition of a building for a future Temple of Angharradh (No interior yet)
- Addition of a garrison (No interior yet)

* Endure Elements no longer grants ablative DR against elements. It now only grants immunity to frostbite/heatstroke, as per the SRD.

* Stonespear Sapper speed reduced, as they're too fast now after the mob speed adjustments.

* Uruk Lurra friend token added for future content.

* Added a second route to Uruk Lurra upperdark outpost from beetle caves, to better support newbie orcs progressing their leveling content.

* Celebrimbor armor version with long skirt added to ACME.

*Broken Goblet minor changes :
- Attempt to make a bar interractible
- Made the non-walkable line thiner to allow trade between players over the bar
- Changed a chair

* Drowning mechanics for underwater zones. Only applies to DM underwater zone for now.

* Several s2 DM maps now use temperature mechanics (snowy areas, mainly).

* Epic Survival checks (60+) prevent temperature fortitude saves. Automatic damage from extremely hot/cold areas will still apply, but the fort save will never roll (and thus the character cannot become fatigued from temperature).

* Boat to Mist Lake from Forgotten City removed. The Forgotten City harbor is now exclusively for boat travel to and from the Underdark/Upperdark.

* Updating s1 maps with temperature mechanics. Only most obvious ones right now, others might come in later after a more thorough search.

* Rockrun portal to and from UD auction house removed.

* New ACME cloaks.

* Completely resisting heatstroke/frostbite damage (via racial, class, item, or spell DR against fire/cold) from a failed Fortitude check will no longer inflict fatigue. (In effect, possessing DR 4+ against fire/cold damage will render you immune to temperature-based fatigue.)

* Fire spells cannot be cast in underwater zones unless making a successful Spellcraft check. Fire supernatural abilities can't be used in underwater zones at all.

* Removing ToT fluff feat and MotD.
Bug Fixes
* Corrections to Nashkel, Roaringshore and Ilmater's Temple.

* Other corrections and minor validated changes after players' requests in Baldur's Gate Temples.

* Fixes to dragon disciple tlk entries.

* Fixing a helmet tint map.

* Fixed a bug where non-petrification uses of EffectPetrify (e.g. the Entomb spell) were treated as real petrification for the purposes of breathlessness and removal by Stone to Flesh. Only effects that actually petrify the target will be subject to Stone to Flesh and exempt the target from needing to breathe. (Being frozen by Burst of Glacial Wrath will also confer breathlessness, but cannot be undone by Stone to Flesh.)

* Bugfix for Wagons Ho to replace greengrocer's items for DM Spartacus.

* Correcting the name of a priest in Kossuth's Temple.

* Fix for Vargouille familiar not working.

* Fix for Red Wizard qualification feat not being granted to players with the Mulan and Rashemi human subraces.

* Shimmering lights wild magic effect should now have a visual effect.

* Fix for wild magic whispers so you only get one whisper, not multiple.

* Goad now correctly checks Intelligence score, not Intelligence modifier. It also now has its 10 base DC.

* Fixed some logical errors in the temperature code.

* Flooding code compiles again.

* Fix for mp armor.

* Correction to the appearance changer not working in Vale Estate.

* Frostbite/heatstroke save DCs now properly grow with each successive save.

* Rogue HiPS (Indoors) should now work.

* Greater Dispel Magic should now be a valid spell for counterspelling.

* Crusader now grants the new Power Attack instead of the old one at level 5+.

* Bladesong Style will no longer forcibly deactivate if a Bladesinger/Deathsinger has Duelist/Invisible Blade levels. (It still doesn't stack with Canny Defense/Unfettered Defense, but it will now correctly take the greatest AC bonus, as implied by its description.)

Server Update October 26 2022

General Changes
* UD Kopo epic weapon vendor moved from Undrek whatever (the Upperdark one) to Sshamath Darkwoods.

* Upperdark <-> Underdark travel checks now inform the player that extremely high Survival DCs is caused by traveling without a light source (or darkvision).

* DC adjusted for one Upperdark <-> Underdark route.

* Rework of pet code, pet cages now have their blueprints saved on the cage by default. Pet cages now have a generic Call Pet ability rather than needing to have a specific one for each individual cage. This only affects new cages, old ones will continue to work as previously.

* Raven pet cage added.

* Pet store updates.
Bug Fixes
* Correction to walkpath issue in the Temple of Torm.

* Corrections to walkpath issues in Roaringshore.

* Missile Storm should correctly maximize again.

Server Update November 14 2022

General Changes
* Next in line for environmental effects: lava and fire. Entering a pool of lava causes 30d6 fire damage per round and half that for 1d3 rounds after you leave. You are also slowed by 50% as long as you are in the lava. In addition, it also sets you on fire. Being on fire deals 2d6 damage for each round you fail at a DC 15 reflex saving throw. This function is not yet added to most lava areas, but will be added in a coming patch.

* Being in an underwater or water-flooded area now applies a max level wetness effect to the PC.

* Cold and heat temperature damage has been doubled, reflecting that PCs get maximized HP pools.

* Elaborate Parry now provides AC equal to half of the Duelist's level, down from full Duelist level.

* Mountain orc subrace added. Orcs are now a racial category which includes mountain orcs and gray orcs. (Tanarukks are still under planetouched, half-orcs still separate like half-elves).

* Added weapon proficiency icon for Mountain Orcs.

* Orc domain changed to use new orc racial icon instead of gray orc icon.

* Weapon Proficiency (Mountain Orc) added. Mountain Orcs always have proficiency in greataxes.

* Dragon Disciple dragon color feats moved to class features category, out of history feat category.

* Script changes to support mountain orcs.

* Cyric now takes his place on the Bone Throne in the fugue. Jergal's appearance has also been updated to his ToT look.

* Rockrun is no longer available as a Nexus starting point.

* Added a chance of dropping Bloodstaunch on the T5/T6 medkit tables.

* Improved the odds of getting +10 kits on the T5 medkit table.

* T6 medkit table can no longer drop +6 kits, only Bloodstaunch or +10 kits.

* Fixed an issue where some low-tier "specific" loot tables were redirecting to generic tables for the same tier. They now redirect to generic tables for the next tier, more closely matching the original intent of those redirects.

* Zeroed out the chances of receiving "class-specific" loot drops if you were looting as certain classes. The logic for those drops was fundamentally broken, anyway. The probability of rolling items from the miscellaneous tables has been increased accordingly for those classes.

* Teleportation Circle no longer incorrectly allows you to teleport an infinite amount of people per reset. Instead, it correctly enforces a limit of 1 traveler per 3 caster levels per reset. (So a minimum of 5 travelers/reset for CL17, 10/reset for CL30, etc.) For bidirectional teleportation circles, this limit is tracked separately for each endpoint. NOTE: While the wiki specifies a duration of 1 month, this has never been the case, and Teleportation Circle has always had a 1-week duration. This is not changing in this commit.

* Stabilize Portal is no longer just an RP spell. As per its description, it recharges a teleportation circle to full power (resets the expiration timer to 1 week, and resets the traveler limit to the maximum for the circle's caster level without having to wait for a server reset) in exchange for 1500gp. This spell must be cast separately for each endpoint of a bidirectional teleportation circle; it is possible for one endpoint to expire weeks or even months after the other if they are not consistently recharged.

* Seal Portal is no longer just an RP spell. As per its description, it makes a dispel check against the targeted teleportation circle, with no CL limit. (High-CL casters may therefore find casting a lower-level Seal Portal preferable to spending a level 9 slot on Disjunction/Disjoin Magic.)

* Teleportation Circles now persist additional variables required for the Analyze Portal fixes.

* Added tint map to "Cyric" armor in AK category.

* Added a small selection of armors for gnomes in AK category.

* Added adventurers guild banner.

* When irreparably lost in the Underdark, transitions to the other side no longer work. This is to make it less confusing to understand. You will still receive a message telling you that you are lost and need to return back the way you came.

* Tunnelrun Scout in River Rift no longer takes players to Rockrun.

* Updated "Restorative Ointment" into the lore version of "Keoghtom's ointment", which is a popular ointement that has the same effect. The item is less generic.

* Updated ginseng icon to better reflect the herb ingame.

* New organisation / god cloaks in Organizations category.

* Removed the Ring of Ilmater's Chosen from the loot tables, per DM request. This was not meant to be granted to anyone besides Saint Merielle.

* Erroneously looted Rings of Ilmater's Chosen will now be deleted on login and replaced with a random item rerolled from the same loot table.

* Many BG-specific forms of spell failure (like dead magic zones, forbidden spells, or grappling) will now prompt the spell failure voiceover and spell fizzle vfx.

* New voicesets ported from Pathfinder: Kingmaker: Pragmatic Pathfinder (Male), Amiri, Octavia.

* Warlock outfit reverted to its pre-MotB appearance. No more black leotard.
Area Changes
* Appkit enabled on one of the Kraak Helzaak maps.

* Moved a plaque in the Chapel of the Red Knight (Temple of Tempus).

* Reworked the transition between Chapel of Waukeen and Sword Coast Commercial Exchange.

* Added the transition between Temple of Helm and its underground parts.

* Altered the shadows intensity in the Temple of Ilmater & Orphanage, minor corrections.

* Forgotten City encounter triggers updated to support new boat entrance.

* Small update to Roaringshore. Fog Optimized and a few other small tweaks.

* Attempt to improve trapdoors transition in the Temple of Ilmater.

* Darkhold inner keep gate unlocked. Gate captains added to inside the keep to adjust outer castle gates with more flexibility.

* Selmiyeritar guildhall no longer allows players to enter without a key, which caused players to get trapped inside.

* The residents of Boareskyr village have built a makeshift wooden bridge over the ruins of the old one.

* Quick and dirty conversion of Darkhold temple of Bane to a temple of Cyric.

* Varalla Path Underdark exit now requires correct keys to be used, like the boat. This only affects the Underdark exit, not the Sshamath exit.

* Fixing various doors that got broken due to fixing door blueprints in a previous commit.

* Bridgefort door locks fixed.

* Added map notes and some exterior updates to Darkhold.

* Father Marcus removed from the Temple of Ilmater as requested by Dungeon Masters, after the old man's death.

* Moved Mother Juna from the Orphanage to the Temple of Ilmater, upon Dungeon Masters request.

* Added Khalso's honorific title as "Revered Brother", upon Dungeon Masters request.

* Changing DH exterior music.

* Captain Vanders is now Lady Julia Vanders. DM NPC blueprint for her also added.

* Dead Magic has now faded from the city of Baldur's Gate.

* Custom area music restored to the server. Many other new tracks added for future area design.
Bug Fixes
* Characters not wearing armor now correctly receive a -4 DC reduction on Fortitude saves against heatstroke.

* Fix for RCR tree not allowing you to decline using your ToT 100% RCR.

* Correction to strange patterns in the water in Thundars Ride.

* Reapplying slow movement when Tortoise is on but FoM isn't now lasts an hour instead of 12 seconds (it is removed if it detects the spell is done, this is just about preventing it from constantly reapplying every 12 seconds).

* Varalla's Path set to interior and underground.

* Bigby 5 should properly spawn the hand for players.

* Minor corrections to the Temple of Ilmater and the Temple of Tyr (Light, walkpath, readable book...).

* Upperdark<->Underdark travel routes should no longer incorrectly give the lost surfacer flag to UD characters.

* Dragon Disciple elemental immunity feat correctly sets a spell id for the effect.

* Dragon Disciple energy immunity will return if for some reason the disciple doesn't have any of the required feats.

* Medieval City placeable blueprints fixed for builders.

* Several door blueprints fixed for builders.

* Spell Synthesis is actually Spell Surge.

* Fixed a couple of faulty interactions with Maximize Spell.

* Fixing Cult of the Dragon longsword bonus damage (changing from non-working slashing to piercing).

* Another fix to Underdark maze transition script getting variables for surfacers and underdark characters mixed up.

* Minor correction to the balcony in Torm's Temple.

* Fix for mountain orc not granting great axe proficiency.

* Various minor correction in Baldur's Gate temples (placables position, locked door, floating objects, usable targets in Temple of Tempus for mechanical training).

* Attempt to correct the non collectible shurbs in the Tranquil Pools of Eldath.

* Adjustments to Darkhold map to fix transition to Corm Orp.

* Uruk Lurra beetle cave <-> Upperdark transition should now work.

* Greater Restoration now correctly removes EffectInsanity.

* Auril and Uthgar now correctly grant Weapon Specialization Battleaxe.

* Players above the water in submerged/partially submerged zones should no longer be getting the slow down effect.

* Power Attack will now correctly recalculate damage when a shield is equipped/unequipped.

* Rescue encounters without preset guards should no longer fail if the map hasn't spawned any hostile NPCs yet, instead retrying a few times in case the NPCs spawn.

* Fix for Bane not being selected by divine casters. Reminder that any Banite divine casters are actually receiving their spells from Cyric, and this may not be a permanent arrangement. It is not recommended to roll new divine spellcasting characters that follow Bane.

* Scroll/potion/wand crafting should no longer generate with missing texture icons.

* Ranger lore feat icon fix.

* Myrkul is now correctly identified as a dead power.

* Ducal palace ambient sounds should no longer loop over and over and over.
