    is there an issue with Duels? twice now in two different zones after relogging both toons, i couldn't accept a duel. Both charactesrs just say "you have challenged CHARACTER to duel to the death"

    It happened in Mons Letalis and Plane of Hate. First time i thought nothing of it and just ran back to pok

    That's a pretty big nuisance. A good number of raiders in zones like ST will duel others to get out.

    Gate potions, TL's, ports, lots of ways out. Mild annoyance but it will be fixed so eh.

    Yep, what I mean is it will be a problem for anyone that doesn't know. I guess we'll just have to announce at our raids.

    You have raiders that don't read patchnotes and forums? That's half the fun!

    Thanks for the work devs. Ouch, two weeks without dueling is a major pain.

    Fun bard bug!

    Currently if you have KEI on you can refresh KEI (normal behavior). KEI stacks with Lcea/Chorus of Replenishment (bard AE mana/HP regen songs) also normal behavior.

    However as of this patch, if you have KEI and Lcea on your buff bar, you cannot refresh KEI. Or even if you only have Lcea, it is blocking KEI from landing.

    Frostreaver's Blessing from ring10 is also blocked by Chorus of replensihment - you can have both, just have to have ring effect on before bard song starts - also seems that all clarity line spells are affected, not just KEI.

    SP does not appear to be blocked by Chorus, nor Lunar Whispers, nor Regrowth of the Grove.

    Re: Bard stacking

    http://www.afterlifeguild.org/Thott/haste_stacking.php

    I am under the impression this was written in the Kunark era. I'd prefer to find an actual dev quote, but Thott is all I can come up with. While the article is all about bard haste, he had this to say:

    Today's behavior seems to be *that* behavior. I can't say I *like* the new behavior, but it does sound just like what Thott is describing here. What would be Ak'urate?

    It seems to me that the exception for bard songs should work both ways, not just in one direction. Meaning, bard songs should stack on top of other spells, but also other spells that are stronger than bard song, should stack on top of spells. But I don't know anything about how the code works, and if that information is even available at the time a spell like KEI tries to land.

    I fixed the desync with the double aego but it seems to have caused other changes.

    Probably the same reasons for Lcea blocking KEI, but adding that Lcea also blocks Regrowth of the Grove.
