Bug fixes

  1. Fixed a bug where quality specific equipment would display a multiplicative % stat increase and a flat stat increase, but only one would work. Going forward, the flat stat increase will be made obsolete and items will no longer be generated with it. Quality stated items will now only generate with the multiplicative stat bonus, and this change will be retroactive.
  2. Fixed a bug where items would falsely state that they were providing a speed benefit (did not do anything). They should not generate anymore going forward.
  3. Mortars will no longer be able to shoot at players outside of render distance.
