Skills and Mechanics
* Area-of-effect attacks now bypass defense mechanics if the attacker is a Redeemed with Moteless Eye.
* Slings have been added to the list of items cleared out on a 15-minute AP tick if dropped; previously they were retained because they are technically Throwing weapons, leading to clutter in locations where they are found.
* Added a feature to Nexus ban mechanics by which characters owned by banned users do not appear in the leaderboards. This applies to past bans. This has cleared up a lot of space on the leaderboards for current users and if you were questing to acquire or keep a spot on the leaderboards you may find that your standing has now improved.
* Desecration's Blood Feast result (HP gain) now heals Defiler Poison and Minor Poison.

Major Bugs
* Applied a bugfix that (when tested) appears to address the recurring issue of pet kills against Sires of Retribution members failing to trigger many common effects of death. Thanks to plscks for finding the apparent underlying issue here. It is unknown what impact this will have on the observed cases of this bug sometimes triggering under other circumstances besides pet vs Sires user; let us know how it works for you and if or under what circumstances you still observe buggy effects.
* Corrected a serious bug that prevented all area-of-effect attacks (not just those of Moteless Eye users) from having their accuracy reduced by defense, dodge and automiss mechanics.
* The Feeding Fangs effect of consuming Void Walker blood has been corrected to actually work. No spoilers if you haven't figured out what it is yet.
* Morality overrides for angels attacking members of Evil and Unaligned factions in their own strongholds have been applied to Redeemed.
* Fixed a bug that caused some AOE attacks, most notably Shock Spheres, to entirely bypass all soaks. (Thanks also to plscks for cluing this one out.)
* Resolved a major issue where discarding gems from the safe discarded other gems with similar physical attributes but different spells. (Again, thanks to plscks for help with cracking the underlying issue with this one)

Minor Bugs
* The Fallen's Abiding Hate no longer applies its +1 damage bonus against nondemons when attacking other Fallen.
* Critical hit bonuses against doors, wards, glyphs and fortifications have been adjusted to better interact with damage multipliers and boosts.
* The Redeemed's Remembrance of Demonhood bonus now works on other Redeemed who have fallen back into evil.
* Exempted factionless Fallen from being targeted by wandering demonic Pets in Stygia.
* Defensive Stance and Shield of Faith now correctly cut off when a character runs out of MP attacking a door, ward, glyph or fortification.

You're welcome! The dev team and everyone reporting bugs and involved in that process has been doing a very fine job, keep up the great work!

Hopefully that Sires bug will be gone for good this time? Everyone keep watch for that one!

Heh. On first reading I got a weird impression that plscks has secretly joined the dev team. Only on second reading I realised that you are "only" thanking for detailed (and thus very helpful) bug reports Very Happy

I'm not sure if it is the same bug, but I got another death without death message. Details in the bug thread.
