04/28/2020—April 28th Release Notes

World Polish

Fixed a rare bug that could prevent players from being awarded Prophet Shards when completing the Forging Steel mission for the first time in a day.

Build Template loading has been disabled in Super Adventure Box to prevent players from regaining class features by switching templates.

General

The "Salvage All Masterwork and Lower" right-click option in salvage kits will no longer be highlighted as an available option for players who don't have any masterwork gear, as all gear below masterwork is fully covered by the "Salvage All Fine and Lower" option.

The "Sell Junk" option in vendor windows will now be grayed out for players who do not have any junk items to sell.

Profession Skills

Engineer

Jump Shot: This skill no longer ignores the immobile condition.

Bug Fixes

An adjustment has been made to the timing of Guaranteed Wardrobe Unlocks so that they sync up with the release of festival items. Festival meta rewards will now join the unlock with the first update following the next year's festival. The unlocking of full festival weapon sets will also be delayed until after they can be fully unlocked through festival gameplay.

Fixed an issue that caused visual effects on the rear saddle of certain roller beetle skins to no longer change from blue to red as the mount's speed increased.
