Combat & Gameplay
Combat & Abilities
- Major Expedition's visual effects will no longer become stuck on player characters.
- Developer Comment: This change should improve performance in environments with heavy effects (Trials, AvA, etc.) when multiple players are applying Major Expedition.
- Fixed an issue where spamming cast time or channeled abilities, such as Puncturing Strikes or Dark Flare, would cause a delay to occur between each cast of those abilities.
