News and Notes:
- The Beorning trait "Desperate Shouts" has been adjusted as follows: Tier 1 reduces the cost to execute the next wrath consuming skill by 50%. Tier 2 reduces the cost to execute the next wrath consuming skill by 100%. This does not include Execute. This trait also no longer only affects your healing skill. Any skill that would normally consume wrath now consumes the "Desperate Shout" buff.
- Corrected an issue with the Legendary Items Reward Track that was causing the 'Time Remaining' to not display.
