Other Changes:
  • A new line of Phasefront hoverboards, the Chimera, has been added to the Paid Point vendor. Two varieties are currently for sale: The "Standard" and the "Violet" editions. These varieties are not limited-edition and will be sold in the Paid Point vendor beyond the Halloween season. These are currently unavailable in any bundled form.

  • "Sealed Inner Sanctum Pass" should no longer vanish when used incorrectly on the Inner Sanctum Portal.
  • Tarasque has been given additional health.
