Item Notes

  • Tinderboxes will now drop at more level-appropriate ranges for mobs in Shrouded Isles. This will make the drops more consistent with their implementation in the classic zones. This fixes a concern where players were killing mobs and receiving a tinderbox that seemed too low compared to the monster level.

Item Notes - General

  • The Necromancer version of the 'Ring of Fire' artifact has been updated so the /use and /use2 icons match the icons on the other versions of this item.


Item Notes

  • The proc rate of Knit Wounds on the Tough Snegli Skin has been reduced.
  • The polearm weapon, 'Vile', has been updated so it properly reflects the type of polearm that it is and the damage that it does.
  • A number of Hibernian spellbound handwraps were updated so they salvage for the proper material type.


  • Players on the classic server cluster can now properly zone from the Demon's Breach dungeons into the appropriate battleground.
