  • Runic/Infusion saturation do not prevent entering the worldmap anymore

That will definitely improve the survivability in the east and against adventurer parties.

Oh wow. Yes, definitely.

Oh wow. Yes, definitely. Adventurer parties won't be quite so much a death sentence anymore.

what is *body* armour?

Does body armour for Cursed Gifts include feet, head, hands, cloak, etc, or only light, heavy, massive?

Body Armor Jenx

Just light, heavy and massive I believe. :-/

possible chat log bug/glitch?

this doesn't happen all the time, but when i try to left click to move or attack on the bottom 7 tiles or so, often the chat log will appear. it keeps me from being able to attack my enemy or stategically avoid enemies because the only direction i can move is back up. now sometimes i CAN get down to the bottom of the screen but then i cant move back up again.

Yeah, fixed
