change Tweaked the channel selector ever so slightly to hopefully make it less likely to close when moving your mouse.

info October 30th, 2019

5.26.28 October 23rd, 2019
new Reminder that the Halloween event begins on October 24th!
new There is a special offer in the Snail Buck shop that will be open until November 14th, 23:59:59.
new Your mana now shows up in the mini-action and mini-combat modal on mobile. Now you never have to wonder if you're wasting precious, precious mana. There is also a setting to hide the mana summary.
new Added the Chat History and High Scores to the mobile Tools panel (the one that links to settings, the manual, etc.). In addition, the Tools panel will now close after using any of the buttons in that menu.
bug fix Fixed a small bug that would sometimes collapse headers when clicking buttons in the item detail modal, such as the Eat or Drink buttons. There were a number of places that needed to be modified, but it should result in less odd behavior.
change Settings have been broken down into User Interface and Premium. Also removed an unnecessary setting and moved the dedicated whisper channel setting to the Chat tab in Settings.
change Changed how the item set display is rendered. Should look mostly the same as before, but please report any differences.
change Changed how the mobile mini-action and mini-combat display is rendered, including bigger Summary / Chat / Items buttons. The action messages and timer are also a little bit different, which will result in using up less room and support long messages better.
change The chat input should now scroll a bit better into view on mobile devices.
change The spell casting count input field will now clear when you close out of a spell and choose another spell.
change The default sorting behavior of the manual actions is now level, followed by the name of the action.
change The mobile manual has been updated a little bit to be a little bit easier to read. Please let me know what you think! Fitting so much information in such a small place is not easy, but I'm open to feedback. You can see the new design from Manual > Skills > [ Pick a Skill ]. I have not tried to apply it to any of the other pages in the manual yet.
change Disabled the hover style for tables on mobile.
info October 19th, 2019
new October is always a spooky month, and this year is no exception! Be on the lookout for Spooky Coins, which will start dropping on October 24th! They will stop dropping at November 1st 23:59:59.
content The location restriction on catching Lobsters and King Crabs has been removed. You can now do these actions from anywhere that the fishery is accessible from.
info October 11th, 2019
content Seafood Fra Diavolo, Banana Smoothies, Sturgeon Soup, Peach Cobblers and Fig Rolls have had their effects increased from 1 minute (or 2 minutes in the case of Fig Rolls) to 3 minutes.
content The Witch's Broomstick could never break, so their break rate has been reduced to 0 to reduce confusion.
5.26.27 October 7th, 2019
bug fix Some legacy guild shops and storages showed HTML codes instead of their actual text representation - this has been fixed now for a subset of these codes. Do you have an example of another code that doesn't look right? Just make a bug post indicating what it is.
change Quests that no longer have a valid date (e.g. Homey's Revenge) will show that the quest is only available on a certain date / date range.
change NEW Battles! are just Battles! now.
change The NEW Manual is just the Manual now.
change Items with a count of 0 in your personal shop no longer show up in the manual under My Possessions on the item pages.
change Changed Tools & Weapons on the Equipment page in the manual to just Tools.
5.26.26 September 18th, 2019
change Changed the behavior slightly of modals so that they aren't as likely to close when you do not intend them to. The only caveat with this update is that on linux, on rare occasions, you may need to click twice to close a modal (mouse down on the modal, but mouse up outside of the modal).
change Adjusted the login behavior that should do two things. 1) on mobile devices, you may stay logged in longer without having to re-log back in. 2) Refreshing the game will extend your current session by an additional 30 days, which should also help you stay logged in longer.
content Have you ever wanted to make your own delicious Crawfish Boil? Well now you can! Use the item search to find out how to make them.
content Added crushed celestial runes.
content Retired the Merfolk Fishing Spear and removed the NPC shop prices.
content Cleared the remaining water breathing potion effects and sent out trades containing Archipelagic Coins.
content Bumped up the required speed level for the Scavenger Hunt quest since it seems to cause confusion for new players.
content Consolidated empty bottles in with the rest of the smithing actions in Yawning Forge.
5.26.25 September 7th, 2019
new Added the Show Category Weight setting. This will allow you to see the total weight of a given category in your inventory, houses and storages, instead of the count of unique items.
bug fix Fixed a bug that prevented players from being able to automatically start using their extensions from journal entries.
bug fix Fixed a minor bug that gave an unhelpful error when sometimes adding / removing copper to / from your shop.
change The forum topic length has been increased to 64 characters, and the forum will prevent you from typing too many characters.
change Removed the year from the date in the top right. If you need Amar to remind you what year it is, I recommend that you invest in a calendar.
5.26.24 August 20th, 2019
new There have been some requests for a separate dedicated whisper channel so that whispers do not consume every other channel. There is now a setting called 'Dedicated Whisper Channel' that will do just that.
new I will be removing the special offer from the Snail Buck shop in the next day or two, so be sure to pick some up before it ends!
bug fix The Snail Rattle now shows two rows for its mana regeneration in the Effects Panel. One row shows +2 and the other row shows +2 Magic.
change The spell-casting menu is now a little bit more click-friendly on mobile devices with more padding around each spell.
change The travel menu is also a little bit more click-friendly on mobile devices.
content Bones are now listed under the Carpentry header in the inventory.
content Normalized all of the various spell base timers.

Timer spells start at 30 seconds
Random Drop spells start at 40 seconds
Double Drop spells start at 50 seconds
Success spells start at 50 seconds

This is not a substantial change except for Fleet Foot and Everlasting Feast since they did not have a timer defined. Some other spells are slightly higher and some are slightly lower (+/- 5 seconds).
