v1.2 BETA (closed)
- Added Total Levels to Guild & Armory Rosters.
- Now when you are gathering on a node, there is a small blue reverse progress bar (no #s on it, just figure the full bar = 100% full) that displays approximately how much "stuff" is left at that node. So you can get an impression on when it will deplete.
- Added a Quick Menu to the Battle System, you can now click the U to Use the ability or P to pass on the ability. Without the need to open the ability.
- Added the Pass ability. So you can save the durability on the ability by "passing" on using that ability in that battle. When you pass it will pass on using that ability in that round and just perform a basic attack. You will not be able to use the ability later on during the battle, but you save the durability on it for the next battle.
User Experience / Interface Improvements
- Now selling & repairing items does not reload the whole page. It loads the data into the screen, with chat still visible.
Fixed Bug: Fixed issue with not being able to use Durability Scrolls, and a small display issue that was introduced with a recent patch.
