We've seen a lot of interest for further changes to the Chamber of Xeric. Whilst we haven't been able to include all of them in this week's QoL blog, we want to make sure you are aware we have seen these requests and intend on dedicating an entire week to further balancing and tweaks just for this. As soon as we can provide more information on when this will be, we will let you know. For now, please continue to send your feedback to us via the usual channels - we are listening.
