Horn of the Abyss[edit]

  • Fly, Water Walk and Dimension Door spell changes which make it impossible to trigger objects without alerting the guard even while using these spells (if take into account fix of object guard tilting bug).
    • To trigger a guarded object while flying or water walking (if the object in question is not a freely passable one, like a friendly Garrison), you will now have to first land on an adjacent tile and fight the guardians.
    • Fixed bugs with interruption the flight on forbidden cells. Interrupting the flight above a guarded tile will now trigger combat.
  • Fly cast works when hero wears Angel Wings or has lower level Fly effect.
