Didn't they mention a whole flood if new information available? Or is this publically available now?

I’d like to see an actual list of changes from the closed beta.

Is it still unavailable - or only available to people able to register their key?

Just a small reminder, that just because something has changed from beta 3 to open beta, does not mean it will be a feature of the release.

When I played in the Beta - I used aetheryte crystal constantly (after every guildleve) to refresh MP. Solo was different - but with limited MP regen they're really stressing the strategic use of MP.

I did NOT participate in the last Closed Beta build - but I understand there were major improvements to Spirit/Phantom Dart and other damage from MP - so it might not be that big of a deal.

In a way I am a little glad they limited it, it probably will prevent exploiting of some sort in the future I am sure.
