Update Notes


The Hand of the Gods

Crafting: No Longer Just Underground!

  • Have you ever wondered why poor crafters have always been forced to forge their creations in the damp, dark reaches of Norrath? Blame the gnomes!
  • Tradeskillers will now find crafting stations placed throughout their home cities.
  • Now you can display your skill to all your potential customers, without having to work in cramped quarters.


  • The Ironforge Exchange and the Coalition of Tradesfolk will now sell Tradeskill Writ Clipboards for use in your home when you have achieved amiable faction with them.
  • Leona Ward has checked with her suppliers and now sells the necessary fuels.
  • The amount of fuel needed for rare potions/poisons that Alchemists make has been reduced from 8 to 4.
  • Old tradeskill "Reagent" items can now be used as primary components in spell recipes much like Inks/Dyes.
  • Dusts can no longer be used instead of normal Imbue items in imbue recipes.


  • All female run animations have been updated with the exception of frogloks, halflings, and gnomes.


  • You can now find an option under Controls -> Keyboard Settings called Automatic AFK. Enabling this option will cause your status to automatically be set to AFK whenever there is no keyboard (or Mouse[2]) activity for 5 minutes. Using the keyboard again after this will remove the AFK.


  • Swapping wielded or worn items will no longer cause you to lose the benefit from both pieces.
  • The Ancestral Sarnak War Bow will now work properly.


User Interface

  • Houses will tell you how many broker slots they have before you buy them.
  • The Quest Journal will no longer expand all trees every time the player logs in or zones.
  • Looking for group and looking for work at the same time will no longer confuse /who lfg.
  • There is now an option to increase and decrease the font size in text and response bubbles.
  • The timer display in the group quest window will now align and count down properly.
  • You will now receive a notice if you have already been awarded Achievement Experience for a named NPC kill.
  • Consigned items purchased while possessing a pet will now go to the pet owner’s inventory.

Update 28a

This was a sneak-patch, hence why it has no real LU number of it's own.
