  • Fixed a bug that occasionally cut off lengthy trade and party-search-related messages in the Chat panel.
  • Added additional trade and grouping keywords to the list of words that trigger Party Search.
  • Changed the layout of the Forgotten Shrines and Fetid River Heroes' Ascent maps.
  • Added a message to alert players when someone in their district has achieved a maximum title that counts toward earning Favor of the Gods.
