Updates Feb 22, 2010:
- Increased Arena target list size to 16
- Selling items should also count as making space for dropped items
- Increased healer’s cost for con/str for higher levels
- Healer’s constitution augmentation capped to 120
- Minor fixes to quest text

Coming soon next week:
- The high level raid expansion (Demon Gates)
- Contains new raid areas accessed by using rare key drops
- Entire guild can participle raid when a guild member unlocks an instance
- New high level items that will only drop inside the instances

The constitution changes prevent increasing gap of new vs old players and make PvP shorter. The cap value is chosen based on 99.99% percentile of highest con players so PvP balance is not affected. (The 0.01% of players with slightly higher con than new cap will not be altered, and the only 3 player with ~200 con will be investigated for legitimacy)
