Massive Patch Review. . . -

We are currently testing an extremely large Shadowbane patch in QA that we hope to deploy next Monday across the service. This is roughly 50% of the total fixes and changes, so this will expand as more items are verified and tested.

Update: Several entries were removed as they were previously fixed, or working as intended. For more information see the corresponding forum thread.
