  • Spirits have been reworked as follows: When a spirit pulses its passive effect, it loses health equal to a percentage of its maximum health. (7.5% for nonelite spirits, 3% for elite spirits.) The effect radius of a spirit's active skill has been reduced from 1,000 to 600 for all spirits. Spirits now die automatically if the ranger moves away from the spirit beyond a range of 5,000. Spirits also die automatically if the ranger transitions between water travel and land travel. Fixed a bug that caused underwater spirits to use their unique skill when killed.

  • Frost Spirit: Decreased the hit-point value of the underwater version of this spirit to be consistent with the land version.
