1) ROAR CREATURES is a new option available to Barbarians trained in the Strategos mastery. It will cause roars to affect all hostile creatures in the area and skip players. Other than the targeting logic, this functions the same as ROAR AREA in all respects.

In addition, the following bugs have been squished:

  • ROAR QUIET not affecting players
  • ROAR AREA not triggering justice charges
  • ROAR CHECK not recognizing certain no-justice areas

2) TOGGLE AOE is a new option available to magic users with offensive Area-of-Effect spells. It will change the default targeting option (previously always 'Engaged') for when Engaged/Creatures/All is not specified with the CAST and TARGET commands.

Notably, the quirky Cleric spell Hydra Hex now supports the aforementioned targeting options, and is the only cyclic whose pulse behavior will be changed dynamically by this toggle. Other pertinent cyclics will continue to maintain the initial AoE option.

Important: If you opt to use the default ALL option, please be aware that our PvP policies described in NEWS 5 24 and NEWS 5 25 will apply the same as when you use CAST ALL.

Live in all instances. Thanks to GM Ynami for the QC.
