10/27/2020—October 27 Release Notes

World Polish

Thunderhead Peaks

  • Fixed an issue that prevented characters from completing the Chasing Tales: Katarin the Bonecrusher achievement after unlocking Chasing Tales: Thundering Blow in rare situations. Characters currently affected by this issue will be able to update this achievement after returning to Thunderhead Peaks.

Bjora Marches

  • Fixed a bug that caused multiple norn chests to share a daily cooldown.

General

  • Removed duplicate level-78 crafted exotic backpack recipes.
  • The Mystic Forge refill button has been improved and will no longer lose track of an item stack if the output matches one of the input items. The Mystic Forge refill button will now use the first matching item stack in your inventory.
  • Some inventory menu options have been moved out of the menu and into buttons for better visibility.
  • The categories listed under the Equipment section of the Hero panel have been reorganized. The new arrangement is now:
    • Equipment
    • Wardrobe
    • Outfits
    • Dyes
    • Glider Skins
    • Mounts
    • Novelties
    • Miniatures
    • Finishers
    • Mail Carriers

Items

The existence of consumables that equip players with high control skills creates an unintended play pattern involving combat with the inventory panel open. It's our goal that encounters with substantial defiance bars be addressed by build changes rather than reliance on consumables, and for this reason we are disabling several items in dungeon and fractal content. The following consumable items are no longer usable in dungeons or fractals:

  • Metal Rod
  • Power Matrix
  • Rock
  • Wooden Plank
  • Sentinel Rifle
  • Termite Shovel
