May 1st Patch Notes

Published by under community news on May. 01. 2012.

Servers went down, servers came back up, and we were presented with a nice healthy amount of patch notes for our trouble. There were a lot of little fixes in this weeks maintenance, and some little quality of life improvements as well. Almost all areas of the game have been hit with some fixes this week, not surprising since the game has needed some bugs ironed out since the release of 1.2.


Check after the jump for the full list of patch notes this week, and let us know your thoughts on them in the comments section below.
