    Hey there all, it's been a while since I did some MiBs, but I found today that the Pinco UI was no longer picking up the locations correctly, and the reason seemed to be that it was including garbled text from somewhere as well. Text that looked mysteriously like genuine messages! So I swapped to the default client and YES! There are stories inside the MiBs now... A lovely change, despite the pinco-breaking, but when did this come in? I didn't see mention of it in the patch notes...

    Cool. It had to be very recently. When I have been on I have been fishing all the time trying to get all the legendary fish and never saw the messages until today.

    First day I noticed the change was Nov 20th, there was a small patch the day before I believe.

    Weren't they always in the MiB originally, then broken for a while then came back in with the MiB Changes to loot?

    Yes--they were in MIBs originally.
