Ron's Authority active buff description text changed from “M. Def” to “Magic Resistance” to match the skill functionality.
Ron's Authority item skill description text changed from “M. Def” to “Magic Resistance” to match the skill functionality.

Means that has a chance of increasing resistance to damage magic during an attack, simple as that.

Thanks for some of those bug fixes I guess.
Seriously now, is the notion of critical - high - medium - low - documentary bug fix, familiar with the people who decide what to push forward first ? In every line of work and every project management I've seen, the critical is considered first, then going down severity...
If the devs are being paid on number of bugs fixed and can decide to solve all the minor ones to score higher, then something is really wrong in the procedure and team logic.

Because seeing a text corrected is nice, but we could live without it.
Having an important for the class/player skill not working (take Earth Tremor, just on top of my mind), has a heavier impact already.
Having Raid Bosses give no xp comparatively with the time and effort spent, which is a recognized bug, can penalize a whole bunch of players, their progression, their enjoyment of the game, and this starts becoming more critical already, doesn't it ?

Thank you for surprising us once again with the vastness of possibilities of failure (see Einstein's quote about the immensity of universe...)

Basically no important fix.

I laughed for a year and half because of this.

What about the Kartia NPC bug?
What about the Mail System bug?
What about the Servitor in Olympiad bug?

Why did Innova went to Episodion last week with the 3.5 patch fixing all these problems with translated (English) files and are we getting a big load of minor text and grammar fixes while you (Vali) promised a big bug fix pack in March.

If this is this big bug fix, which real bugs has been fixed?
