December 03 2009- Build Notes
Welcome to patch 188.8.131.528
- (Windowed Mode) Resizing the game screen while the game is processing a previous resize can result in a crash.
Gameplay enhancements and Game balance
- Continued rebalance of monsters, including a damage rebalance on choice mobs and now display proper magical resistances.
- Items that are group lootable (like the Andar Bloodgem off Sprogsnarg) will now correctly let everyone in the group loot the item.
