RIFT 1.7 Hotfix #1 - 8:00am PDT 2/3/11 [NA] - 2:00am GMT 3/2/12 [EU]

GENERAL
* Corrected some items that were changed to Bind on Pickup that were previously Bind on Equip, and fixed several items whose required level to equip was inadvertently raised.
* If you are currently over the Favor cap, you can now regain spent Favor when returning an item during the refund buyback period.
* Mobs in Expert dungeons and first-tier Raids and Slivers have powered up and now deal increased damage and have more health.
* Increased hit points slightly on standard population mobs from levels 42-52.
* Augments have returned to providing the same bonuses on crafted items as they did in 1.6. Existing augmented items should be automatically updated.
* Mathosia: A Dim, Dark Eye: King Aedraxis should have his usual appearance back.
* Fixed the occasional doubled message when gaining certain updated Achievements.
* Using /resetuitodefaults should no longer cause a client crash.


PVP
* Reduced the amount of Valor provided by PvP armor sets by 7.5%.


SOULS

CHAMPION
* Weapon Specialization: Now increases damage by 0.4% per point spent in Champion, and no longer has a max damage bonus cap.
* Deadly Strikes: Now enhances damage by 11-33%, increased from 6-18%.

PARAGON
* Teaching of the Five Rings: Now increases damage by 0.4% per point spent in Paragon, and no longer has a max damage bonus cap.

PYROMANCER
* Glyphs of Power: Increased base bonus to 10% from 5%.

RIFTBLADE
* Rift Fury: Now increases damage by 0.4% per point spent in Riftblade, and no longer has a max damage bonus cap.


DUNGEONS, CHRONICLES, SLIVERS, AND RAIDS
* Bosses in Runic Descent and Foul Cascade that come from Rifts are engaging properly again.
* Caduceus Rise: Updated mob placement to make pulls slightly easier.
* Greenscale's Blight: Fixed the Prince Hylas loot tables.
* River of Souls: Chains of Death: The Achievement 'In Service of the Soulstream' will now be granted at the correct time, instead of at the incorrect time, which was not correct.
* River of Souls: Chains of Death: Increased the priority of the 'Essence of the Endless' disguise so that it doesn't drop off when using other disguise/shapeshift items.


WEDDINGS
* Wedding Rings now get converted into Used Wedding Rings if they are equipped at the time of divorce.
* Taking a wedding gift no longer prevents guests from using the forge at a Dwarf wedding ceremony.
* Eth reception guests now show up *after* the ceremony, instead of before it.
* Cancelling while taking a wedding gift no longer prevents you from receiving more gifts.

The valor change is the one to watch. This will be interesting to see how it affects pvp tomorrow. Also want to try out those warrior changes.

Those Warrior changes seem pretty big. On my 51 point Riftblade I'll be going from a 50% elemental damage increase to a 20.4% damage increase.

EDIT: Unless that cited 0.4% isn't for when you have 5 points in it, which I kinda doubt. If it were 0.4 per rank it'd come out to 2% per point in the RB tree, which would be absolutely crazy without a cap. (+102% non-physical damage!) It may lie somewhere inbetween, but that wouldn't make much sense with the way they worded the patch notes.

Since there is so much change to gear stat as of the 1.7 update, who updates the stats on the diffrent items?
Since I have some of the gear that has been boosted, can I go directly into thoose items and correct the stats, or should I post the new stats in the comments below said item?
