Patch Notes: Version: NW.105.20181121b.1

By Julia (nitocris83) | Wed 05 Dec 2018 02:04:50 PM PST



Workshop and Quest Flow

  • Artisans now apply to the workshop in less predictable time ranges.
  • Lessons Learned: The tea delivery is no longer quite as difficult to reach for smaller characters.
  • Running a Workshop: An issue has been resolved where this quest could not be completed under certain circumstances, due to the step "Take Your Item from the Delivery Box" not advancing.
  • The appearances of several artisans have received minor touch-ups. Sadly, the Makeover profession is only for NPCs at this time.
    • No, this does not mean a Makeover profession is actually in the works.

Crafting and Crafted Items

  • Alchemy: Flask of Potency, Major Flask of Potency, and Superior Flask of Potency are once again properly available to craft.
  • Alchemy: Dye packs for Control Wizard, Devoted Cleric, Great Weapon Fighter, Guardian Fighter, Hunter Ranger, Scourge Warlock, and Trickster Rogue are once again properly available to craft.
  • Alchemy: Propolis Varnish is now properly available to craft.
  • Cotton Petasos now hide characters' hair, which resolves clipping issues.
  • Crafted capes and mantles now properly change the character's appearance when equipped.
  • Forgehammer of Gond: The required item level and equip level were listed incorrectly. During the fix, we changed the required profession level to equip the hammer, but the stats have not changed.
  • The items "Electrum Raid Necklace" and "Electrum Raid Necklace +1" have had their stats adjusted. Recovery on these items has been replaced with critical strike.
  • Various profession tasks now properly repeat when set to repeat.


  • Artisan recruitment items granted by legacy slot unlocks no longer incorrectly state in their tooltip text that Alchemists will apply for non-Alchemy professions. (The functionality is still the same.)

Masterwork Quests

  • Alchemical Extravagance: This quest now refers to Aqua Regia instead of Concentrated Aqua Regia. After all the construction nearby, it had lost its concentration.
  • Masterwork Blacksmithing recipe books are no longer incorrectly labeled Weaponsmithing recipe books.

User Interface

  • Collections now state profession level 70 instead of 25 for masterwork items.
  • The "Current Order" and "Current Gathering Tasks" windows now allow previewing of an active task's current Focus and Proficiency.
  • The Order button is now disabled if the player tries to input 0 orders.




Release Notes


Content and Environment

Acquisitions Incorporated

  • Certain competing VO lines in certain quests have been told to chill out and give each other some space.
  • Convention Infiltration: Quest progress now consistently functions for folks with the party leader's version of this quest.
  • Convention Infiltration: Ralvortix now audibly snores when defeated. It'll be fiiiine.

  • Icewind Dale Relic Vendor no longer inexplicably shows up in the Stronghold near the temporary vendors.
  • The event text for Double Professions has been updated to match its new functionality.

  • Deep Crow mount audio now has a smaller audible radius, meaning the wing flap in Protector's Enclave can no longer be heard from super far away.

  • Various fixes have been made to text in the French, German, Italian, and Russian locales.



Remaining Known Issues

We know there are more, but here are some of the highlights.
