[+] Slayer - resetting and banning tasks
    - You can now reset your task with the vanilla slayer menu and an instant yes/no dialogue. (It's a lot quicker than before)
    - You now have the option to permanently remove a slayer task from being assigned to you (unless you remove the ban of course)
    - If you are doing duo slayer, it will prevent you from getting any of you or your partner's banned tasks.

    - Should no longer stop and refuse to attack if there is no straight path to the target

[+] Vote book and Well of Goodwill updates
    - Vote books have been nerfed to half of their cash reward. 
    - To combat the immediate backlash, vote books you get on the weekend can be traded for 2x coins (counts how many votes you get on the weekend, subtracts 1 each time you claim a book)
    - Books received from weekend vote parties also add to this number.
    - The Well of Goodwill prices have been changed, according to the number of players:
        * players > 80 = 150m
        * 80 > players > 40 = 100m
        * 40 > players = 50m
    - Players can only donate 100M to the Well of Goodwill every 24h. 

    
[+] Small Content
    - You should be able to buy/sell items that are "Unlimited" on the GE under their regular margin.

    - You can now dye seismics!
    - Insert option now works while banking.
    - Youtube command has been added to the game. (;;yt or ;;youtube)
    - Royal crossbows can now fire MOST types of bolts.
    - Players in single combat zones should be able to start attacking (or at least run to another NPC and queue an attack) as soon as the NPC begins to die, rather than the end of the animation.
    - Recipe for disaster teleport was moved to the cook at home
    - Buffed the chance of getting a rare (regular red) item on the SoF to 1% rather than 0.89%
    - Changed the item rotation on the rare items shop 
    - Clue scroll drops should be more consistent now.

    - Re-worked the account manager interface
        * Can now override mode icon with donator icon
        * Can now disable the ;;empty warning prompt
        * Two new respawn locations have been added to ;;settings

    - Ports login notification should no longer say "Your ". Ports times will be moved to the task interface in the future.
    - God books are now wieldable in the shield slot.
    - Can no longer get bandages while in combat in soul wars
    - Machetes and buckets have been added to the Bob skilling shop.
    - Non-working XMAS titles have been fixed.
    - Investigator's perk always ends the clue after the first step.
    - Barrage will splash if it hits 0
    - Vote books that can't fit in your inventory will go into your bank.
    - Teleporting in the wilderness has been adjusted.

    - You should be able to left-click water plants now. This has been tested a small amount, please post if it does not work otherwise or on certain plants.
    - Bronze bars can be smithed into bronze bolts (unf) now rather than finished.
    - All reaper gear is untradeable.
    - 5kg granite added to the summoning shop so you can summon granite lobsters.
    
    - Bugged Hard clue scroll drops should no longer happen; if you do receive a clue that you believe is not added to the game, post it
here
 

[+] Stat changes to weapons / armor
    -Magic Weapon stat changes have been implemented into the live game. This affects the most used magic staves and wands/offhands.
    -Retro Cape stat additions have been implemented into the live game.
    -The Deathtouch Bracelet has had an increase in magic damage % for a total of 5%. It has
     also been given defensive stats in ranged to bring it in line with its other defensive stats.
    -The Reaper Necklace is now the best in slot amulet for ranged.
    -The Amulet of Souls has had its ranged accuracy reduced to 0 in order to give the Reaper
     Necklace a use.
    -The T85 weapons (Lava whip, Strykebow, Staff of darkness) have been given appropriate stats.
    -Dark arrows have been given a decent ranged strength of 100.
    -Wild arrows have been given a ranged strength of 145. Whilst not as strong as noxious arrows
     these should be obtained more easily. However, they must be gathered in the wilderness and
     therefore still require some risk.


More media will be posted here following the release of the patch.
