Patch Notes: NW.15.20140520a.5
Hat of the Pirate Host no longer removes a characters hair.
Reduced clipping issues on many male Devoted Cleric helmets for both Dwarves and Half-Orcs.
Content and Environment
Artifact Recovery: Adjusted the position of some of the encounters on the outside portion of this quest.
Caer-Konig: The Black Ice gear mannequins now slightly better names to tell what set they are from.
Dread Vault and Spellplague Cavern final bosses drop a single item instead of multiple.
Heroic Encounters: Removed all loot drops except Black Ice Enchantments for Epic and Major Heroic Encounters. Final rewards on them will gain an additional 30 Raw Black Ice. This is to help with entity draw limits and performance.
Icewind Dale: Instance completion perk is no longer looking for Dread Ring missions. It now completes properly on Biggrin's Rest and Need for Mead.
Icewind Dale: Instruments of Vengeance: Golem activation credit now given while in a party.
Icewind Dale: Some heroic encounters will no longer give participation to players who may not have actually participated under some situations.
Icewind Pass: A Grim Warning no longer has a helmet that can be reclaimed multiple times in a row.
Protector's Enclave: Pardon our dust elementals while we undergo some renovation of the Grand Emporium.
Icewind Dale: Adventurers have had their names and groups adjusted to be more clear what side they are on.
Fixed a text color issue that could cause some text to not be visible, such as some Zen Market item descriptions.
Inventory now lists Black Ice, Raw Black Ice and Companion Upgrade Tokens in the Riches section.
Items and Economy
Artifact: Shard of Valindra's Crown can no longer be interrupted once activated.
Artifact: Black Ice Beholder artifact now has its cooldown properly reduced on higher qualities.
Frozen Crystal Lockbox: The amount of tokens that come from the Companion Fortification Kit is now 30 up from 1.

PVP Artifact Packs are now correctly bind on pickup.
Skirmishes: Completing a skirmish during the bonus event hour consistently rewards Rough Astral Diamonds again.
Tarmalune Tradebar Merchant: Coalescent and Preservation wards sold by the Trade Bar merchant are now Bind on Account. This change is not retroactive. Existing wards will retain their current bind status.
The amount of Black Ice awarded from the Black Ice Domination PvP Heroic Encounter has been increased.
Leaderboards now only look at Domination kills, deaths and assists instead of from anywhere such as Open PvP.
Purchasing additional character slots from the character select window now works properly without needing to reopen the game client.
Salvaging: Black Ice items will properly show how much Black Ice they award instead of showing "0 Rough Astral Diamonds".
The Wondrous Bazaar no longer accepts adventurers selling items. Gateway will still allow this from the Inventory window at any time.
Black Ice gear resistance may not properly update until changing maps. Additionally, it is possible to queue for Kessel’s Retreat and be removed from the queue if you die.
