Patch 22.214.171.1244 (that has a nice ring to it) is now live in Alganon. The update squashes a number of bugs, addresses some balance issues and adds some enhancements to the game. For example, "a Loot Roll method has been added to settle those disputes on who gets the uncommon and rare items in a group."
in addition, soldiers and rangers have had their ability specializations reset due to changes to the classes. You can read the full patch notes after the jump.
