Not a lot of people people must have helped with the test realm because there's a major glitch which needs to be addressed concerning pets. I don't know if it's just my pets but fairy seems to be not casting. I've done countless battles and not one time have my pets cast fairy (the most common casting healing spell) since the update.

Going through these 1 by 1.

Pets:
1. Yay! This was annoying me way too much.
2. Don't know what this means...

Spells:
1. Finally indeed...

Interface:
1. Thank you, I was wondering how to turn on quest finder, I found it about 2 weeks ago, but now for newer players it should be a lt easier.
2. Have never stitched/unstitched... ever, but I infer this is very good for people who stitch regularly.
3. Side scrolling arrows? I have never seen them.

Gear & Items:
1. It had a hole!? Ha! I never saw it.
2. Ok then...
3. Tower Music Box...? I totally know what that is.

Quests & Duels
1. I feel this is a cause of why I got stuck... I wouldn't call it exploiting, and I am trying to re-do it and hope Sofia gives me the quest again.
2 and 3. Never noticed these, considering I rarely ever use the decline button, but I guess people about to get these quests won't be too confused now.
4. Mhm, don't even remember this quest.
5. Hip, hip, hooray!
6. VANISH!? But she was one of my favorite characters!
7. Never had this happen, but yay for everybody.

Other
1. Found getting between Tyrian Gorge and Bastion annoying, so thank you very much.
2. I've never hun around to see Dee's Mirror be there after the Lost Pages has been done, but yay!
3. I feel I know why this has happened (to stop people from creating 10,000 characters and rate a castle 1 start all the time), but I don't think anyone will really mind
4. Really? As if they were not a challenge already, now they are REALLY not a challenge... well, all's well that ends well, and I don't think anyone will mind, either.

Overall, great! You fixed some very annoying bugs, and I thank you very much for that, here's hoping that Part 2 will come out sometime this month.

Drrrr you mean this has not happened to you before .... But seriously Mine stopped casting pixy before the update .... My pet would just sit there and watch me die ... But oh God watching buying Healers to help in battle there worse than ever .... Don't get me wrong once in a great while they are ok ( only when you buy 1 and nothing else or it will heal things that are not even hurt .... ) Nothing worse then spending your hard earned cash ( Crowns ) buying minions that heal every thing else but the person that bought it .... But Yet I still love this game and always will ....

So yea my pets stopped healing all together since you guys did this update on my cast fairy! I mean now pets aren't healing at all. And I'm not just speaking on fairy but even the unicorn, spritely, and heal current
You guys don't understand but some of use real hardcore players have been working hard and spending crowns to get our pets to where they are.. And now all of a sudden you want to mess with our pets, because those lazy players who didn't take the time to put into their pets are complaining. Well so what we have to suffer due to the few who don't put the time and effort into their pets and Characters. This is not ok, and if you want to call it balancing out the game. Then make it to where the other heals do more in the amount of the healing. I mean come on spritely doesn't do much in the pvp battles and you guys know it. So who are you really trying to please here? The complainers who aren't putting the work are getting justice while others are suffering because they want but don't work for. I need some answers here, and understand a lot of players are going to quit this game due to all these changes. You make shadow magic but yet you don't give us anything to be able to really counter the damage dealt by it. Sorry but Shadow Sentinel and Shadow Seraph is a joke when criticals and damage has become over powering. Please do not give me an automative response like you did by posting about update on may cast fairy. I get that part, but what you don't get is that it has majorly effected out gaming in general.
