We have determined that the defense statistic was being applied to items too liberally, causing those items to be stronger than they should have been relative to other items of the same level with different effects. As a result, we have reduced the amount of defense points on all items with bonuses to defense by approximately 33% in order to bring those items in line with other similar items.
Proficiency Bonuses have been added to the game. Some sets of equippable items have been added that will give bonus effects to the player only if they have a specific skill, such as Leatherworking.
With the new ability to train Hunter pets with considerable magical resistance, the amount of pet resistance granted by the set bonuses for the Giantstalker's and Dragonstalker's has been reduced while the pet health granted has been increased.
The Earthfury set bonus that increases the range of totems now works with the Mana Tide Totem.
The Giantstalker's set bonus that increases Volley damage now works properly.
The Lawbringer Paladin Set's Healing Circle effect now only affects your party, but the range of the heal has been increased to 30 yds.
The pants and gloves for the Dreadmist, Magister's and Devout sets have had their Agility removed, and other statistics slightly increased.

The Polychromatic Visionwrap is now a cloth item with durability.
The Searing Needle's proc will now do the listed damage of the tooltip.
The Unstoppable Force now has a short duration stun instead of a knockback effect, and the stun will occur less frequently.
Changing stances no longer removes the Orb of Deception effect.
When you have more than one transformation aura (Orb of Deception, Noggenfogger, etc.), the last one applied is the one that is shown.
Several of the Molten Core Epic Weapons have been updated with new weapon glows.
Totems affected by the Earthfury set bonus no longer have their effect flicker when players are outside their normal radius.
Fixed bug preventing several items, such as the Goblin Jumper Cables, from being gift wrapped.
Fixed bug where equipping and unequipping set items and other items with the same bonus as the set bonus could reduce the affected stats twice until logout.
Sayge's Dark Fortune of Resistance now adds +25 to all schools instead of +10%.
PvP reward gloves that grant stealth detection have had the detection reduced somewhat.
There are now items in the game that have a duration on them that is measured in real time. For instance, there are fish that have a four-hour duration; they only last four hours regardless of whether or not the character is logged in.

The Lobotomizer's proc name has been changed to "Brain Damage".
