That's what they had promised, though, is it not? They said they'd add abilities for Rangers and they did exactly that.

can people confirm that 3.0 in fact fixes the final boss fight so it actually occurs? i've been sitting on a high-level party for a while now waiting for it to be fixed (though I guess I can run them through the new DLC in the meantime).

Did this patch finally fix spells and abilities that summon clones (e.g. Essential Phantom)?

^ what bug specifically?

The bug that made the clones/phantoms/illusions spawn without weapons, meaning that they'd attack with their fists for very low amounts of crush damage. This has been a problem since the game launched.

Seems to be fixed, certainly when I used the twitter cloak to summon clones they all got random weapons from the Necklace Of Unlocked Possibilities

What about the Gift from the machine bonus bug? (it was not transfering correctly from exported games). Any possibility of it being fixed in saved games that progressed far beyond Hasongo?

That was only the case for Dichotomous Soul - which got fixed with the last patch.

Never experienced that. But on the other hand - I never double-click an item - so... ;)

I double click all the time, and a quick look at my current party shows everyone still has their racials except Mirke. So it's an inconsistent bug at least. Still, worth double checking the rest of my companions...
