[edit] All Skills

  • Skills with a recharge time can no longer be reduced to 0 (example: if a spell has 1 second recharge time and you have both Quickening Zephyr and Serpent's Quickness active, the length of the recharge time will not drop below 1 second)

Note: All skill ranges are for Attribute Level 0 through 15. For example, "Fertile Season: reduced duration to 15..45 seconds" would indicate that with 0 Attribute points, the duration would be 15 seconds, and with 15 Attribute points, the duration would be 45 seconds.

[edit] Other Changes

  • Improved Guild-versus-Guild matchmaking so that high-rated guilds are matched more quickly.
  • Fixed spawns near closed doors in Underworld.
  • Added two Resurrection Shrines in The Crag and improved respawning location so that the party respawns together at the nearest friendly shrine.
  • Decreased match duration for The Crag to three minutes.
  • Killing a pet in PvP no longer rewards Faction.
