Mini-Patch: November 11, 2014
Now any nodes under 50% resources will have a replenishment system in place. To combat players leaving nodes "empty" for example. If a node is left for 1hr @ 5%.

In-Game Mail System
- Now chat will periodically (every 6 mins) check your ingame mail account and if you have any unread messages for any of your characters you will be notified in chat. It will also turn the message button at the top of the screen red if you have unread messages and back to normal if you have 0 unread.
- Also when deleting messages in your mailbox. it will automatically remove the red notification of unread messages (and update the # of messages) on the fly.

v2.1 BETA (open)
Inscription Tradeskill Released!
- Added Patterns to Inscription (Level 1-8)

- These Runes can replenish durability in all quality of items (Epic and Legendary included)
- When one of these runes is used on an item to refill the durability. The item loses a range of maximum durability each time a rune is used on it. (less max durability loss from the higher quality of rune)
- Added a Orange Star next to players in the Nearby Players listing and Online Listing who are in your exact location. This makes it easier to see how many players are in your area, possibly using the same nodes as you.
now when using a durability scroll or rune empty scrolls and runes don't show up as possible items to "refill" as it would just display an error.
October 29, 2014
v2.09 BETA (open)
- Pattern-based Trades: Now will display the # of trade and inventory slots remaining while combining patterns. similar to the collection trades the color will change from green to yellow to red the closer you get to having 0 empty slots available.
- You can now view the tradeskill patterns you own wherever you are in the world. Not just in the trades area. (When not in a trades area the "Buy Patterns" button is not visible and can't be used.)
- Changed the "Train Now" button to say "Your Patterns"
Sharing Level Ups
- Now it also displays your Leaderboard Rank in the related "Tradeskill" or "Character" level up. When you share it in chat.
Fixed Bug: Where when a guild leveled off a Disenchant that produced multiple resources the guild chat was spammed with more than 1 level up message.
Fixed Bug: fixed a stray html bold tag, that was bolding all of the materials in your trade inventory listing. (only happened on the main tradeskill page that displayed the listing of all the trades)
Fixed Bug: In collection trades if you had 0 slots remaining and picked up and was forced to drop it. It would display -1 slots remaining. It was just a display glitch.
Mini-Patch: November 1, 2014
- Now Token purchased guild bank slots are handled separately than normal guild bank slots. This allows for guilds who did purchase slots with tokens to still use birch & cedar containers to increase the bank space by 20 slots like all other guilds. The token slots will just be added on top of the unlocked total.
Mini-Patch: November 3, 2014
- Guildies can now deposit and withdraw a specified # of materials to and from their guild banks. Instead of an all or nothing type situation it was before.
November 4, 2014:

- Now when a players guild application is accepted or denied they get an ingame message notifying them.
- Added a countdown / slots remaining for collection trades. Changes color when gets closer to 0. (will add to the other trades soon)
Fixed Bug: Disenchanting in some scenarios would delete/drop the wrong material when you hit your max inventory, which could cause a lose of materials.
Fixed Typo: Typo from the in-game messages you receive from the Drakor Market. Fixed.
Mini-patch: Oct 29th, 2014

October 25, 2014
v2.071 BETA (open)
Chat System Update
- Now when linking items in chat, it adds a link code to the chat msg, allowing you to add a message with your link. Link items in whispers or any chat channels. Also allows you to link multiple items per chat line.
- This fixes players misclicking link and spamming chat. Players can just delete the link code in the chat msg after misclick
- If you notice the items don't get parsed into links. You linked too many. =) max per chat line is around 3 or 4. (I strip out the links if the chat msg is too long to store in the DB)
Enchanting: Tweaked Enchanting Patterns, as they were requiring too little materials after I buffed drop #s for DE. It was not intended to be able to DE an enchant and be able to create another one from only the materials from that DE into an endless cycle.
Fixed bug: Officers were unable to create / reply to topics in the guild forum.
