Didn't fix the horrible performance for me, unfortunately. Hefty patch, though.

You are the exception. Arcania runs fine on most systems out there, even without the patch.

I wonder what inventory cooldown means - something to do with the instant potion use? I did often see enemy spell-casters charging up and not responding to being hit by a sword. Maybe that's what that sword strike fix means. It's nice that they're supporting it… but until they patch in 'quests done with some imagination' it's still a much weaker title than it could have been.

They'll need something better to achieve this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiJ9fy1qSFI

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.

Re: They'll need something better to achieve this…..

That is quite a list of fixes for a game that was presented as "very polished"
