  • Most clickable buff items will now grant you a passive AA ability with a permanent effect! See the Items section for details.
  • Look out for new Nights of the Dead items available in the Marketplace, beginning October first!
  • Made several changes to the way Fading Memories and other escape abilities work. Please see the AA section for details.
