Anne Stickney

Well that was quick. Hot on the heels of the first round of hotfixes for patch 5.1 is a second set released yesterday on the official website. The majority of the hotfixes this time around address small bugs with the latest patch, although there are a couple of class changes in the mix as well.
  • Both Stormlash Totem and Skull Banner have had their radius increased to 40 yards, up from 30.
  • Quest targets on Bilgewater Beach in Krasarang Wilds will no longer flag you for PvP.
  • An issue causing some players to be friendly with the denizens of the Black Temple has now been fixed. Sorry guys, no demon friends for you!
  • And to the relief and delight of all, Great Cranes will now drop Pristine Jet Crownfeathers more frequently.
