Patch Notes for May 14, 2013

Nothing earth-shattering in this patch as far as magicians go, but there are a couple of things which are helpful. One new command line to let you use a clickable item in inventory in a social/hotkey. I tend to use a lot of "clickies" to self-buff myself, and now I can set them up a hotkey (well 2 hotkeys because of the number of clickies I have).

/useitem <slot> [subindex]

This will activate the item in an inventory slot number.  If that item is a container, then it will also allow for specifying which slot in that container to use.

So /useitem 1 would activate the item in your first inventory slot, while /useitem 4 2 would activate the second item in the container in your fourth inventory slot.

Full patch notes follow:
