YAY. Rogue buffs get the MM soul up to around 800-900 self-buffed DPS. Looks like they fixed rogue res, so sorry, Jackie, but on the bright side? BARD RES BARD RES BARD RES BARD RES
GENERAL
* Corrected party pet portraits displaying incorrectly when zoning in or out of Dungeons or Slivers.
* You can now use social emotes, even with a partial name match, to display your emote at another player in target range regardless of whether you actually have that player targeted. (ex: /wave Joe to wave at Joebob, even if you have Mary targeted.)
* Mana and Health potion drop rates from mobs have been reduced. They can still be purchased from your friendly local Apothecary friend or Auction House!


LOOKING FOR GROUP
* You must wait 10 minutes after your LFG tool party forms before being able to vote-kick a member.


RIFTS AND INVASIONS
* Reduced the amount of Planarite awarded by individual Invasions and Footholds during zonewide events. Slightly increased the amount of Planarite awarded in general from Rift content of levels 10-14 to keep it in line with the 15-19 range.
* Increased Planarite cap from 30,000 to 60,000.
* You may now purchase Expert and Raid Rift Lures if you have the required Planar Notoriety of the appropriate type - or purchase husks which no longer have a Notoriety requirement to obtain.


ASCENDED POWERS
* Anti-Planar Augmentation and Holy Champion now properly self-cast even when the auto self-cast option is turned off.


GUILD PERKS
* Call of the Ascended: Now properly costs 3 Planar Charges. Will no longer prompt living people with a resurrection window.


COMBAT
* Decreased the PvP movement/control effect immunity timer to 24 seconds, down from 30, for additional testing.
* Queued abilities will now be cleared when casting another ability, even if you cast one off of global cooldown. This will stop queued damaging abilities from doing things like breaking stealth if Slip Away is used in combat.
* Channeled abilities will no longer interrupt themselves, or be interrupted by attempts to use another ability that fail. If queuing is enabled, they will be queued for next cast. Otherwise, the second use while the channel is under way will be ignored. This is a server-side queue and not impacted by client lag.
* Reactive abilities whose target has moved out of viewable range will no longer leave a sad, orphaned reactive ability icon on screen.
* Reduced the Dodge bonus for the Insubstantial ability used by Ifrit and Djinali NPCs.

SOULS
* Increased the base values of AoE damage reduction abilities on pets. They each now reduce AoE damage by 65% + 1% per point spent in that soul. Affected abilities are:
- Summon Greater Primal Companion [Beastmaster], Forest Blessing [Druid], Greater Elemental Affinity [Elementalist], Ancient Tomb [Necromancer], King of the Jungle [Ranger].

CLERIC

* Physical Trauma: Now increases your Final Blow damage by 4-8% on targets affected by Impale.

BARD
* Verse of Rebirth - New Ability: Brings the fallen ally back to life and restores 20% of their health and mana. This ability cannot be used while in combat. Available with 36 points spent in Bard.

BLADEDANCER
* Not actually renamed to Bladddancer.
* Due to the below changes, characters with Soul Points spent in Bladedancer will be given a free soul respec.
* Blade Finesse and Combat Expertise: Traded positions within the soul tree.
* Blade Finesse: Now increases the Attack Power bonus for Deadly Strike by 50-250%.
* Deadly Dance: Bonus increased to 7-21% and can occur up to 3 times.

INFILTRATOR [PvP]
* Against All Odds: Now also triggers from Silence effects.

MARKSMAN
* Master Archer: Now scales up in damage with the number of points spent in Marksman.
* Sniper Training: Now gives a 7-21% bonus.
* Deaden - New Ability: Blasts the enemy, interrupting casting and silencing them for 5 seconds with a successful interrupt. Not affected by global cooldown. Available with 24 points spent in Marksman.
* Pedestals: Leaving a pedestal now applies a 15 second buff of the Pedestal's bonus, which will wear off unless you re-enter.

RANGER
* Shadow Fire: Now increases the damage of Ranger attacks by 35%.

SABOTEUR
* PTS Fix: For reals - ALL traps will no longer follow you when zoning into an instance or using a porticulum. Sneaky traps.
