Pirate101: Stormzilla now Easier!

Never fails: I finish recording an episode of the podcast and they make a big announcement!  Oh well.  Stormzilla has been once again adjusted, ladies and gentlemen!  See update notes (which will be applied tonight) along with comment below:

Go Go Stormzilla Encounter
  • NOTE: The Go Go Stormzilla encounter is much easier than it was; however, the encounter still requires you use good strategy! 
  • Stupendor-X's talents will now work correctly.
  • Replaced Stupendor-X's Cheap Shot talent with Riposte.
  • Improved Stupendor-X's durability.
  • Fixed the previous movement issues associated with Stupendor-X.
  • Stupendor-X's health bar will no longer appear to rise and fall randomly during combat.
  • Stormzilla Eggs will now display damage taken correctly.
  • Improved the look of Stupendor-X as he emerges from the mountain to begin the encounter.
  • Pets will no longer assist players during the battle.
All positive changes, except that the pets no longer join in, which is a bummer. Still, it seems as though we won't need them to if all the changes work as described.
  • Made changes to reduce player crashes and improve server stability.
  • Players joining ship combat late or teleporting to a friend during broadside combat will no longer be stuck in the air after combat.
  • Teleporting to a friend who is docking a ship should no longer cause players to become stuck in the air.
  • Trainers will now appear to beckon players if they leveled from gaining combat experience and consequently now have a trainer quest available to them.
  • Jumping across the center Metal Guardian area with El Toro no longer causes the game to crash.
  • Removed the Cheap Shot talent from Chumba Wumba.
Reducing player crashes is always a good thing.  Not getting stuck is a good thing.  Nothing negative in here whatsoever.

Nice work KI!  Keep the improvements and updates coming!
