*** Highlights ***

All classes have new Alternate Advancement abilities available for purchase.
Underfoot raids have had another tuning pass. See the Quests and Events section for details.
*** Items ***

Damascite Encrusted Cephalic Clay will now properly combine to make Damascite head armor.
Increased the HP, Mana and Endurance on Tier 9 weapons where they were too low.
Most stats and mods on Damascite armor were not set correctly. This has been corrected.
All Underfoot weapon procs have been modified to make them more consistent and to ensure they function correctly with Twinproc and Twincast. In most cases effectiveness was increased, but there are instances where proc damage was lowered to allow weapons to fit better within their tier. This process will be repeated with more recent weapon procs as time allows.
Added a type 7 augment slot to the Sootstained Shroud of Creation.
Added standard click effects to the later versions of the new prayer shawls.
Fixed the incorrect cast proc on Revered Fighting Courage of Brell, Revered Casting Ease of Brell, Sacred Fighting Courage of Brell and Sacred Casting Ease of Brell.
Fixed a bug in Blessed Healing Force of Brell and Sacred Healing Force of Brell that caused them to return more mana than intended.

Some of the group augments for the 11th Anniversary Mission have had their statistics improved.
