Hey everyone!

We're pleased to announce that the Mastery system, which has long been in beta, is now active. Each class now has 5 tiers of options they can use to customize their own personal attack style. The effects of each can be fairly pronounced, so make sure you investigate all your options. For more information, see HELP MASTERIES.

We also have several other changes that we hope will help deal with several issues we've noticed:

- New Fencing skill: Passata solo - Rogues receive reduced damage based on their Dexterity
- Judgement telegraph has been reduced to 3 seconds from 5
- Arms Enervating Jab adrenaline cost reduced from 10% to 5%
- Arms Rupture adrenaline cost reduced from 10% to 5%
- Arms Mutilating Hack adrenaline cost reduced from 10% to 5%
- Arms Enfeeble adrenaline cost reduced from 10% to 7%
- Arms Batter adrenaline cost reduced from 10% to 5%
- HELP FLOWERS now lists the exact types of flowers that can be picked by those trained in Artistry and what season they grow in.
- Quest items that reset randomly around an area will no longer reset to stockrooms.
