Weapon Auras

  • Item spells are now cast on character and all weapons are affected by the appropriate castable buff bonuses (NOTE: item debuffs now only last 30 seconds in PvP combat, but last the full duration in PvE combat.)
  • As part of the introduction of Auras, the Water of Stasis has been removed from the game world. This includes versioning it out of current loot weapons.
  • Unenchantable weapons that once had built-in buff spells are getting their stats converted in such a way as if they had their item buffs active permanently, while removing the actual buff spells. (NOTE: All weapon buffs have been dispelled & will have to be re-equipped.)
  • All related scrolls and spells updated to reflect the new aura spells.
