Release Notes 2006-04-19
- Quest items should no longer get deleted when players go linkdead.
- Players will no longer be able to enter a completed quest for additional experience reward without retaking the quest. Note: Two quests only were broken in this manner. This change only fixes those two broken quests, not our game mechanic as a whole.

- The Serpentbranch Longbow, Snowstar Shuriken, Ratcatcher Crossbow, Guidance *Crossbow, and Swift Demise Crossbow are all now working correctly.
- All items that cast summon monster now share the same cooldown timers as the summon monster spells themselves. Characters are limited to having one summoned creature at a time.

- Lair of Summoning has been altered to have more variety, both in monster type and trap type.
Prison of the Mind

- In the "cut scene" with Mistress Orphne and the giant, Mistress Orphne's shadow should now path correctly and not collide with players.

- Recalling from the Prison of the Mind will now take you to the correct recall point.
Southern Threnal Ruins
- Fixed some broken monster pathing in the Ruins of Threnal.
