Check out the hotfix notes here, or below with my comments:
The following hot fixes were implemented during today's downtime:
General Changes and Bug Fixes
•Increased the quantity of Officer Medallions awarded throughout the game.
YAY! Great news for any alts and most importantly the mass of new players arriving into Tier 4. The rate at which people were gaining Officer medallions was totally FUBAR.
•Endless Trial players may no longer use global chat channels. This includes the region and advice channels.
No more advice channel gold spam? Oh yeah. Bummer for the new players not subbing if they did need help, but needs must as the channel is useless at present anyway.
•Fixed an issue where certain crafting abilities would be interrupted while moving.
Not high on my list, but it maybe an annoyance for some.
Combat and Careers
•Fixed an issue where targeted AOE abilities would not affect the main target.
Uhm will this fix Glean Magic and the like??? Oh please let it be so....
•Fixed an issue where rewards for killing an enemy would not properly factor when a pet contributed to the kill.
Hadn't noticed this, but yeah that's a good one for Magus, etc. Not epic or anything, but a bit more renown is nothing to whinge about.
Not bad for a few hotfixes!
