 Halloween Hullabaloo or the King's Kerfuffle
- A petulant lord
- Belligerently bemoans

- Glumly impatient
- Smiling with menacing grace
- Maniacal face.
 Halloween Event
- Made preparations for the Halloween events.
 Guild Battle Changes
- The brief damage immunity that players have when resurrecting at the shrine now protects against lifestealing effects.
 Bug Fixes
- Fixed a bug that caused Glyph of Immolation to not affect some targeted spells.
- Moved Durmand and the other Bonus Mission Pack NPCs so they do not interfere with the Halloween celebrations.

- Amber Chunks and Jadeite Shards from the Factions Rewards NPC indicated that they cost 5,000 faction each. If option selected, would show that each Amber/Jadeite granted 5,000 points to title. - This was corrected in the update the following day
