The fine folks over at Artifact Entertainment have released a lot of details concerning some major changes taking place in Horizons:
Dragon Hoard and Abilities: A follow-up to the Dragon Hoard and Ability changes:
"As we outlined last week, there are some big changes in store for Dragons in terms of how their hoard functions. The first set of changes to dragon hoards and abilities is complete, and should be on Blight shortly. Two ability lines were modified and both now cost hoard to use and got an upgrade in the process. A new ability was also added: adult dragons will now get "Shield of Gold"."

Self Buff Changes: Details on some planned upcoming tweaks to self-buff abilities:
"The first issue we're looking at is some of the frivolous busywork involved with Horizons combat. In particular, we're looking at self-only buffs, which in a lot of cases aren't situational -- when it wears off, you refresh it, because there's absolutely no reason you wouldn't. We've begun looking through these for candidates to turn into passive abilities, so that players can clear a few hotkeys and concentrate on more important things."

Treasure System Details: A detailed explanation on how the Treasure System functions and a clarification on "different treasure":
"Over the past few weeks, we have been reorganizing our treasure profiles for a variety of different creatures in order to help streamline the system and make it easier for us to add additional items when and if necessary without having a drastic impact on the items already in these treasure groups. This has been reflected in our Release Notes as "Different Treasure." Some players have started to perceive this as a "nerf", when in reality, the prime goal has been reorganization."
