    Over on test center these are the latest changes to Publish 53 that might be rolled out to production shards later this week. I thought they were worth a look at. Notice some of the turnins have changed. For those of you who have been hunting the Vanguard Controllers this will will sound great.

    Bug Fixes:
    Added a 15 minute timer for a guild to accept an alliance invite. This means guilds will no longer get stuck in "invite pending" mode. (For guilds in this situation now, once the publish goes live, GMs will be able to resolve the issue.)
    Vanguards and their allies will now teleport if they are attacked while in unreachable locations
    Players are able to resize instead of demolish houses by saying "I wish to resize my house". NOTE: This DOES count as demolishing a house and WILL condemn existing houses on grandfathered accounts. (Further note: making housing changes (placing, demolishing, etc) on Test Center does not affect houses on production shards.)
    Greater Dragons and Dread Warhorses will display properly in trade window
    Statuette engraving tools will be available, sold by NPC tinkers.
    Sand and Granite will have double resources in Fel now
    Creatures will no longer teleport into private houses
    Snake Skin Boots will no longer say Oak
    Blood Oath can now be removed by eating an Enchanted Apple or using Remove Curse spell
    Added a Priest of Mondain to Felucca Prism of Light area
    Zoo Collection points will now decay more slowly
    Lady Sylvanis will no longer chase people quite so far
    Repair Service Deeds now work for a Long Sword, orc, bear and tribal masks, right-facing Black Staffs, left-facing Crooks, and left-facing Clubs
    Player vendors can no longer hold a shield and a two handed weapon
    Moonglow blacksmith regions have been updated to use repair deeds
    Player vendors should now recognize the increased bank storage
    The spelling of Velocity has been corrected when a player is hit by an arrow with Velocity
    Taming Text will now appear over the head when pet is tamed.
    You can now milk a cow (use an empty pitcher on it!)
    Juka Bow has been fixed to show the correct str.
    The Vanguard assault has become heavier
    Untamed Dread Warsteeds will use their signature attack more often
    Bank Checks will update properly when their value changes
    Mysterious strangers have been sighted in various of the Virtue Dungeons.

    Just a quick update for those following this note on this proposed Pub 53 part..
    "Mysterious strangers have been sighted in various of the Virtue Dungeons."
    Jeremy_EAMythic UO Community Coordinator had this to say. "No, I was just a zombie last night (see Obsidian Blades, value of) - I meant anti-virtue dungeons :p"

    So the Chaos Shields and Obsidian Blades have been adjusted down to 2,500 pnts for turnins, and the strangers will be found in the anti-virtue dungeons. Also Pub 53 is now on Origins Shard so it will not be that long before they are on all the shards.
