Intrepid: Drowned Halls Sliver
Every week until Fae Yule we’re introducing newly updated content for level 60! Our fourth feature is the Intrepid: Drowned Halls Sliver, which bumps the enemies up to level 60, and has some new rewards to boot!

* Most items from Mech Week are now Bind on Account instead of Bind on Pickup.
* Players who were previously unable to submit in-game petitions should now be able to do so again.
* You can no longer get around the “Unique” flag on an item by buying it from the front page of the Store.
* Vaults of Planarite and other planarite vouchers are now account bound. Thanks Caitie@Zaviel!
* Updated the tooltip text on the Transfiguration Bauble to clarify that the item consumed in the process. Thank you, Nitetime@Wolfsbane.
* The “G0tt4 C4tch Th3m 4ll” achievement has been moved to the Legacy category.

* New Patron Perk: Patron Artifact Tracking: A 30 minute buff that shows artifacts on the minimap. Turn on Sliver Sight to see Twisted Artifacts, too! Like other Patron abilities, it has up to 7 charges that are gained at a rate of one per day.
* Weekly Patron Gifts will now always contain a Lock Box Key of Rare, Epic or Relic rarity.
* Weekly Patron Gifts now also include a guaranteed Greenscale’s Supply Crate of Rare, Epic, Relic, or even the Transcendent Limited Edition rarity!
* The 3 Day Patron Pass is no longer available for purchase on the Store.

* Quest: Carnage: Marshal Ebur: Fixed some typos. Thanks, Hikarighost@Greybriar!

* Quest: Road Rocks: The item drop that starts this quest is now named Oreling Stone instead of Wolf Flank, because what do cuts of meat have to do with rocks?

* Quest: A Miner’s Job: Fixed some typos. Thanks, Sholock@Threesprings!
* Quest: Foul Flesh: Removed some errant text at the end of the quest description. Thanks, Ireka@Typhiria.

– Slight reduction in Mindsear and Nova damage.

* Regulos:
– Changed damage area VFX on Piercing Tentacle and Unholy Contract to provide greater contrast for players with some forms of colorblindness.

* Planebreaker Abominus
– Manifestations of the Hive will no longer be affected by energy draining abilities.

* Grandmaster Atrophinius:
– Atrophinius now displays a buff that indicates when he is within healing range of a Mead Keg.

* The Temporal weapons for warriors have been fixed to properly have attack power instead of spell power.
* Screaming Howl of Ether now has a melee upgrade path. Thanks Krager@Greybriar!
* The upgrade paths on the Ancient Dwarven Promise Ring and the Construct Plate Ring were backwards – this has been corrected. Thanks, Menhir@Deepwood and Blaorm@Deepwood!
