Bug Fixes and Changes

  • The comprehensive fix for Anita, Svana, Gera Marl and Mr. Falyx have been fully applied; those officers should now give the appropriate bonus based on their level (1/1 at level 1, 2/2 at level 2, etcetera).
  • The Red Thunderstorm and upgraded versions of Lork Jral Bul, Grease Monkey, and Dacia Ulex will now work for their appropriate treasure hunt items.
  • Fixed a bug issue for Facebook players creating a new alliance for the first time.
  • Fixed the health mismatch for Zone 16 bosses.
  • Disabled the notification pop-up on world chat when players shift-click to copy a raid onto their clipboard; raids in world chat will simply show as faded once the raid link has been copied via shift-click.
  • Significantly reduced the item requirements of zones 9-14 on normal difficulty ONLY; this is to help casual players who want to play the game and read the story without feeling gated at the huge variety of different items needed to progress further.
  • Item requirements for Hard, Legendary and Nightmare difficulties remain the same and unmodified for zones 9-14, for the hardcore Suns players.
