Bug Fixes: Debuffs from Skills
Several year's old bugs have been fixed which caused that monster kills weren't correctly counted (Kill Count, Quest Progress, Quest specific drops) in cases that the monster died from the damaged dealt by a debuff given by a particular skill instead of dying from the damage dealt by the skill itself (for example the Serious Burn debuff given by the Fire Orb). These bugs were not class specific. All skills giving debuffs of all classes were affected by it.

 

Bug Fix: Quick Quest List
Fixed a bug that caused a reset of the quest filter when the Quick Quest List for Hero Quests were opened (Red Exclamation Mark) before opening the Quick Quest List for Side Quests.

 

General Fixes

Quality of Life: Moods
Ever wanted to know how a specific mood looks like but you never play at the particular time? Do you like the night moods more than any other mood? Now you have a way to select which mood you want.
At the options menu, Misc tab you'll find a new category Moods where you can set which mood you want or on which time it should be based:

Change mood based on PC's time (default)
The mood is automatically changed at specific hours based on your PC's current time.

Change mood based on server time
The mood is automatically changed at specific hours based on the current server time.

Use day mood
Don't change moods automatically, instead always use the Day look of the map (the original look).

Use dusk mood
Don't change moods automatically, instead always use the Dusk look of a map if the map supports the dusk mood.

Use dark mood
Don't change moods automatically, instead always use the Dark look of a map if the map supports the dark mood.

Use dawn mood
Don't change moods automatically, instead always use the Dawn look of a map if the map supports the dawn mood.

The setting is saved locally for the whole client and not for the specific character.

 

Experimental: Fast Map Change
At the options menu, Misc tab you'll find a new category Experimental.
In the future there will be experimental options/features which are in beta state and need testing before the decision is made if they are released to the public or not – or if there are still bugs to be fixed. You will be able to opt-out these options if the option degrades your gaming experience or you encounter any issues with it (for example: increased amount of client crashes).

The first option you can find here is: Fast Map Change.
If checked an experimental feature is used which should significantly reduce the time a map needs to switch (reduces the delay between map change and loading bar).
Since the feature is experimental you may encounter issues, like an unusual increase of crashes during map changes and other issues when this option is enabled. If that is the case it's recommended to turn the feature off. The option is enabled by default.
