As for the other stuff, I can only hope nilbog is that nerdy, I know he would like to be. Admit it nilbog, if you're reading this, you would definitely put the exploits in and patch them out if you knew what they were and had enough time wouldn't you! wouldnt you!!

Edit: wtf this list has no mention of the guise?

Edit: but instead should we expect this, and this only?

nerf mistwalker pet to dissipate after 1 round of combat
open paineel (we starting with it open i think? )

APRIL 10, 2000

The Terror Mask will now cast "Fear" instead of "Call of Bones" as previously announced. The "Call of Bones" effect was placed on this item by mistake.

Cazic Thule
Noble Dojorn

Kunark (April 24, 2000)

Reinstate Burning Rapier to updated stats. 7/20 effect:ignite

APRIL 28, 2000

Due to a feature within the zone, players can no longer bind within Timorous Deep. This functionality was intended in the zone prior to launch, as binding presents a possible balance issue. Players who are already bound in this zone will retain their binding location until they bind someplace else.

MAY 7, 2000

Gem Encrusted Ring removed from forest loop loottable

MAY 12, 2000

increase gate guard stats, increase spawn time of city guards from 6 minutes to 20 minutes (nerf guard hunting)

MAY 16, 2000

Increased the number of frightfingers in the Plane of Fear. Previously only 3 frightfingers would pop per respawn. (haha, already done)

MAY 25, 2000

The Runed Fighter's Staff, previously usable by Monks and Warriors, has been restricted to Monks only. The statistics on this staff are much more powerful than normally allowed for warriors. This change is retroactive and will be reflected on items currently in inventory. Though we strive to avoid negatively adjusting items after they have been earned, this item presented a balance issue, making the change necessary. We apologize to warriors that currently own this weapon. Runed Fighter's Staff replaced with imbued fighters staff

JUNE 15, 2000

The Staff of Temperate Flux and the Rod of Insidious Glamour now have a short casting time associated with their activatable effect

JUNE 22, 2000

The Hole opens
Vox and Nagafen receive banishment ability

JULY 19, 2000

nerf deepwater helm effect
nerf donals vambraces effect
You can no longer cast invisibility on any pet.

JULY 20, 2000

/Consent no longer gives other players permission to loot your corpse. Instead, it only gives them the ability to drag your corpse using the /corpse command. This change is due to player request stemming from number of customer service issues raised by some players who were using /consent as a way to steal the belongings of other players. The change will eliminate those concerns and make the game more enjoyable for all of those involved.

AUGUST 9, 2000

Rangers, Paladins, and SKs now have mana equivalent to that of a pure caster with the same stats. This will give those hybrids a good deal more mana, regardless of their stats

SEPTEMBER 19, 2000

Mosscovered Twig nerfed into Mosscovered Branch
Barbed Scale Whip nerfed to offhand only

EPIC QUESTS - We are pleased to announce that we have implemented new "Fiery Avenger" style quests for every class in the game (including paladins). The ultimate reward for each quest boasts a custom model with unique particle effects. We think that you will be pleased.

NOVEMBER 15, 2000

NOVEMBER 29, 2000

The Monk's hand-to-hand skill cap has been raised to a level equal to their one-handed blunt skill
