Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.7.0 BETA4 is upon you!

My minions,

The fourth beta of 1.7.0 is now available!
You'll find all the downloads on https://te4.org/beta-test

Please, try to keep all bug reportings on ToME's official forums at http://forums.te4.org/ as it is hardly feasible for me to survey 10 different location for bugs.
Do not use addons or DLCs to test it, as addons can always mess up the testing and the DLCs require an update to work for 1.7.

One last thing for those new to betas; characters will NEVER validate in beta; that's normal and as usual importing characters across major releases is bound to not work all too well.

Changelog in no particular order:

  • Replaced Bone Wall with Shattered Remains in the Master of Bones tree
  • Fixed Wordly Knowledge description
  • Rewrote Aether Permeation to be a dispel protection and a spellpower boost
  • Fearscape from tanen questline and from the coruption spell both count has "orbit" for the sake of Aether Permeation check

Definitely one of the mad

Definitely one of the mad ones. I absolutely love the extra rows of hotkeys - something I have been wanting for ages! Would it be possible to get 3 more? No need to struggle to find keybinds for them, just having open slots on the bar would be super amazing as I could then have two neat rows that each fit my screen width.

A fellow cultist of the hotbar

The extra hotbar rows will definitely be of use to separate the activatable objects from the sustains.
CoE will also be able to fit all of its talents on the hotbar at once.
Might be nice to set minimum hotbar icon size smaller than the current one too, so that people don't have to manually edit the config.
