[General]

- Pathfinding for NPCs/Pets/etc is now enabled in Nordland and Norsca only. We expect there to be some some effects on classes balance, specifically those with pets. Before we generate navigation meshes for other zones we would encourage people to test and check out the Pathfinding Info/Feedback thread HERE.
- Archetype checks now looks at your investments into mastery trees. RP and Zeal are using the older check as they do not have a mastery tree that is clearly used for specific roles.

[Groups]

- The "World" tab in Open Parties and Warbands is now working and will allow you to set your group/warbands preferences. It will also allow players to search for your group.
- The "Nearby" tab will now only show groups/warbands in your region.
- A notification will now pop up when you enter a new region stating the open parties/warbands in your region.

[Items]

- Using an item that is equipable now requires you to have it equipped.

[Public Quests]

- Plague Mist Vale: Last boss 'Contagion the Blighted' is now a Great Unclean One, as he should be

How does this "mastery tree check" look for tank archetype classes?

before you could have use subj cloak/battlebrew backpack/beastlord book even without equipping them. it was enough to have them in inventory and to drag them in the hotbar. now you have to equip them in order to use their ability

I suspected that.

Just a bit baffled why this was felt needed to change. It's a function that has been working like that since live, available for all - and actually gave those kinds of items a bit of usefulness and longevity. This change basically renders both Subjugator cloak and Battlebrew backpack (both semi-rare items to obtain) undesirable junk, compared to the alternatives.

Silly and unneeded in my book.

You're telling me I can't use Kossar's helm or Skaven Cloak anymore without equipping it? That was the only way to fix broken animations after swimming,

Does it check stats? Like strength, ws, crit or toughness and crit reduction?

Agree with this. Even though i always forget about using them.

We lost Cleansing Winds and now we lose Subj cloak, so now you can't cleanse yourself at all. Yet again more advantages to roaming AMs/Shamans...

Can we get Cleansing Wind back? After all it was available to everyone but wasn't "free", unlike Subj cloak.
