- To share rent, use the account that is now linked to each house. Any character with Friend access or higher can contribute coin, status, or both to the account. Characters with Trustee access or higher can pay the upkeep fees from this account.
- The account retains a history of who has contributed to it (up to 250 people), how much was contributed in total, how much was contributed in the last deposit, and the date of the last deposit. The account also retains a history of the last 52 rent payments made from the account, who paid them, and when.
- The housing menu is accessible from outside by friends and trustees when upkeep is due.


*** New Harvested Items and Recipes ***

- There are new types of uncommon harvested items to be found. They can be gathered from existing harvesting nodes and are identified as glowing, sparkling, glimmering, or luminous depending on their level range.
- New recipe books are available for purchase at the camps of the Hand of Marr and Brethren of Night. Those wishing to buy the books will need to first earn favor with the merchants.
- Using these new recipes and new harvested items, Alchemists can create magical extracts that other crafters can use to make new items or enhance existing goods.
- Armorers and Tailors can combine the magical extract with certain pieces of pristine armor and make new types of enchanted armor. When the wearer is attacked, chest pieces have a chance to proc a heal-over-time spell and leggings have the chance to proc a damage spell.
- Weaponsmiths and Woodworkers can combine the magical extract with certain types of pristine weapons and make new types of enchanted weapons. These weapons have the chance to proc a damage spell in combat.
- Woodworkers can combine the magical extract with certain types of pristine shields and make new types of enchanted shields that have a chance to proc a damage spell during combat. They can also use the magical extract to infuse wands with an activated damage spell.
- Tailors can use the magical extract to create hex dolls that cast a detrimental effect on an enemy. The dolls also provide a minor stat buff to the user.
- Jewelers can combine the magical extract with certain types of pristine rings and make new types of enchanted rings that provide activated buffs to strength, agility, wisdom, intelligence, or stamina.
- For weapons, armor, and shields, the quality level of the creation process determines the potency of the magical effect attached to the item. All quality levels of enchanted weapons, armor, and shields retain the stats of the pristine item used to make them.


*** Damage Rating ***

- Weapons now display a Damage Rating that makes it easier to judge the relative base damage of a given weapon.
- The higher the Damage Rating, the better a weapon's base melee damage output.
- The Damage Rating does not take into account stats, procs, or effects, so there may be circumstances where a weapon with a lower Damage Rating is more desirable.


*** Return to Nektropos ***

- Groups of high-level players can experience one of our most popular zones in a whole new way: Nektropos Castle!
- Those who have defeated Maltus Everling will encounter an old elf outside of the Nektropos gates who is seeking their assistance. He knows a dark secret: that this cursed castle summoned forth the cursed souls that were once defeated within.
- Be warned, this is a much more challenging place than most level 50 zones. The opponents will be tougher, but the rewards will be great.
- Experience a linear storyline progression, defeat scripted encounters, hunt for keys to go deeper into the castle, and find lots of new high-end treasure.
- Like the original Castle Nektropos, this version is intended for a single group. But be warned, the Return to Nektropos will test the mettle of even the most seasoned adventurers.


*** Mentoring ***

- The Target and Implied Target windows now only show the character's effective level when Mentoring.
- Effective level, actual level, and class name are shown in the Persona and Inspect Player windows.
- Mentors should no longer gain combat XP if they have it disabled.

- When an enemy stops chasing you, it should no longer retain you as its implied target.
- Guild leaders and officers can promote and demote members if they are in another zone or not currently online.
- Guild leaders can now remove other guild leaders from the guild.
- Pursuit rules that NPCs follow have been changed:
- If you break an encounter and try to flee from an opponent, it will now follow you a set distance regardless of whether it was a stationary encounter or a wanderer.
- When the opponent reaches that set distance, it will immediately stop following you and return, at run speed, back to the point where it was aggroed.
- As the opponent runs back to its point of aggro, it will be invulnerable to attack and will not add any other player to its hate list.

wow lots of cool stuff in the new patch... That means everyone who hasn't done the Glowing Black stone quest past the Palladium torque part will need to be doing that tonight... Contact me to get the torque if you need it but it will be in my hands before the patch tomorrow to ensure it doesn't accidently get taken

I came across this kind of large number of fascinating stuff in your online journal particularly its discourse. From the huge amounts of remarks on your articles, I figure I am not in the slightest alone having most of the pleasure here! keep doing awesome…
