we recently got some complaints about the heal spells being nerfed and I wanted to pacify you guys before everybody gets too ranty
. We did not change the heal spell line voluntarily and will bring them back to their former power level. The reason for their reduced power was a code cleanup we recently made. In several cases we had old compiled code running on the server while the uncompiled source code was already deleted long ago. We didn't notice that and there was no way to figure out what kind of old code was still running so it was impossible to predict what happened. One sideeffect of the cleanup was the nerf of the heal spells you noticed and like I said we will try to revert that. I might need some help with that though because - like I also said - we don't have the source code of the old code we were running so I have no idea what the actual power level of the heal spell line was.
A positive sideeffect of the code clean up was the fix of Flame Weapon by the way.
Conclusion: I'll change the heal spell line when I am back in Germany. If you notice any other changes that can't be explained with my commit logs please report them to Brian or me. It is very likely that they are a result of the mentioned code clean up.
