New publish on Origin today...And the biggest item of note is that accelerated skill gain in the blackrock area is being turned off.

Official list of changes:

The update will contain the following changes:
  • Fixed an issue that was causing Gingerbread houses to sometimes get destroyed after being axed or from customizing the in which house they were placed. NOTE: this does NOT fix currently placed Gingerbread houses.
  • Characters 30 days or older will receive an extra holiday stocking with a deed for a Gingerbread house until Feb. 1st.
  • The motherlode skill gain feature has been turned off. You can still get blackrock from mining in the motherlode regions, but the enhanced energy of the area has faded.
  • Catskills downtime gifts will no longer be given out
  • Trial of Ricardo no longer stops running part way through
  • Fixed incorrect skill use text used by Lady Melisande
  • Added four new quest giver npcs in the Lycaeum for this week's event

Does anyone know if the blackrock elementals, nether vortexs and toxic ooze not going to spawn anymore or is it just not letting us get the enhanced gains?

My understanding is that the nasties will still spawn, and blackrock mining will still be possible, but that the energies which allowed extraordinary skill gain will have diminished.
