In April, we will be introducing three new types of loot armor Aluvian Lorica armor, Gharu'n Nariyid armor, and Sho Chiran armor. You'll see the first glimpses of these new armor suites in the April Teaser, and you can find more information on their appearance in loot in our in-depth Treasure article.

* Creatures that were within 5 levels of a higher difficulty band will have the wealth level of their loot increased. Some creatures have had the "quality" property added to their loot, and some group-oriented creatures will drop more loot.

Ever since the creature spawn changes, there have been some disparities between the difficulty of hunting around certain towns and the buy-sell rates of the vendors inside those towns. In April, we will be adjusting the vendor buy-sell rates in several towns.

The new buy-sell rates will be based on the difficulty of the surrounding content. You can see the difficulty breakdown in our Creature Distribution Map. The three capital cities Cragstone, Hebian-To, and Zaikhal were given special consideration.

In addition, to give each town some unique flavor, each town will have at least one vendor who has better buy/sell rates than the rest of the town.

Currently there is a disparity in the length of negative spells across different levels. Level VI negative spells last for 8 minutes, while level VII negative spells only last for 4 minutes. We'd like to change all negative spells to the following times:

We are considering using these times for Life and Item negative spells only, and making all negative Creature spells last exactly 2 minutes, regardless of level. Negative Creature spells can be particularly annoying when cast by creatures, and do not directly increase damage when cast by players. We'd like to hear your feedback on this topic.

Healing Spells

Currently the Heal Self/Other and Revitalize Self/Other spells are in our opinion slightly weaker than they should be for their levels. We'd like to tweak them upwards slightly, as shown by the tables below:
