Update 3/16 The updates were released today. We will spend a few days gathering feedback and questions, which will also allow players time to experience the updates, and address them as best as possible.
The Devs spent some time going over how to better improve the experience with arcane focus and magical writings. They are testing an approach and, if everything checks out, we hope to release the update on Thursday. Please note that all dates are subject to change due to last minute needs or issues.
