What was that patch?

    The main thing in the patch was a change in quest text on the housing quest... originally we were going to just have you win the house and not have a transferrable ticket. The quest text said that Mythic would contact you after you won.

    Then we decided that it would be better if the winner could sell the house before claiming it. So, on the Herald it says that the winner needs to contact us... because while we know who the winner of the contest is, we won't be able to automate tracking the ticket.

    So, I forgot to change the quest text which had been through QA a week earlier. When we realized that the Herald and the quest text contradicted each other, we changed the quest text. As someone pointed out in another thread, I'm trying to keep the game self contained and give people the info that they need inside the game. (I know the Town Criers didn't get updated, sorry.)

    While we were at it, we just fixed a couple of other things. But that was the main thing.
