Resolved Issues

  • The issue with certain quest battles accompanying the quest Dance of the Tengu in which NPC healing magic effects would occasionally not activate or display in the log.
  • The issue in the quest Treasures of Aht Urhgan wherein players would be unable to progress or cancel the quest in cases where they possessed a mythic weapon of the same name after obtaining a Serpentking Zahak relief shard or if they accidentally threw away their mythic weapon.

    • If you possessed a mythic weapon of the same name
          The quest can be cancelled by trading a non-reforged mythic weapon to Abquhbah.
    • If you accidentally discarded a non-reforged mythic weapon
