    I wanted to start a thread to keep track of the unannounced changes in publish 61 (so people can see the changes in one place).

    Monsters:


    Crafter-friendly SA resources:

    There are new sources and new methods of acquiring and transforming SA resources, most notably for crafters and non-combat characters:

    The resource-gathering skills can now get SA resources:

    fishing: delicate scales

    lumberjacking: crystal shards

    mining: crystalline blackrock (also can be occasionally found as loot on elementals pulled up with a gargoyle pickaxe)

    Crafting skills can now transform SA resources:

    alchemy:
    vial of vitriol (90 alchemy, 75 magery): 1 parasitic potion, 30 nightshade
    bottle of ichor (90 alchemy, 75 magery): 1 darkglow poison, 30 spider silk

    blacksmithing:
    crushed glass (110 blacksmithing): 1 blue diamond, 5 glass swords
    powdered iron (110 blacksmithing): 1 white pearl, 20 ingots

    fletching:
    elven fletching (90 fletching): 1 faery dust, 20 feathers

    tailoring:
    abyssal cloth (110 tailoring): 1 crystalline blackrock, 10 bolts of cloth

    tinkering:
    arcane rune stone (90 tinkering, 80 magery): 1 crystal shard, 5 power crystals
    void orb (90 tinkering, 80 magery): 1 dark sapphire, 50 black pearl

    Seeds of Renewal Drop from Gardening

    The Seed of Renewal (important for mana/health/stamina regen properties) now has a chance of dropping in place of a regular seed for gardeners.

    Aliabeth the Tinker (quest giver in tinker shop just SE of the public soulforge)

    The Exchange
    : 5 white chocolate + 1 dark sapphire for an "average imbuing bag" + loyalty

    A worthy proposition: 1 elven fletching, 10 bamboo flutes for a "valuable imbuing bag" + loyalty

    These bags appear to give a single monster piece ( eg: a silver snake skin (average) or a demon claw (valuable) ... although it has not been completely mapped out whether *all* monster pieces used in imbuing drop this way )

    Sliem the Fence (quest giver in the far NW corner of the Royal City )

    Unusual Goods : 2 perfect emeralds + 1 crystalline blackrock for an "essence box" + loyalty

    The essence box is a named small black wooden box containing a single essence.


    The sum total of these changes means that with the exception of faery dust, power crystals and chocolate resources (ok, and technically feathers), there appears to be a non-combat path to all imbuing resources (albeit an exceedingly long path for some of them give or take how complete Aliabeth's rewards are)

    From what I understand, the mining and lumberjack bonus only works in Ter Mur. Not in the older lands.

    confirmed.
    Might want to add something Crysta mentioned: Ancient pottery fragments can be substituted for broken crystals when making crystal dust.

    Aliabeth quest: do you need to first complete "The exchange" before you get to do "Worthy proposition"? (Chained quests).

    Only the first one seems to be available to me at the moment.
